Aileen Tokuda, 38

Santa Clara, California
DHC Customer since 2010

"DHC homes in on the ingredients that aid the skin. There is no mumbojumbo in the marketing."

Occupation
Executive assistant to the CFO, eBay, Inc.

I love my job because...
I get to work with smart people who are passionate about the business. Every day we strive to grow and connect commerce for our customers—which may sound a bit "corporate-y," but it's true.

She's got game
From about the time I was 10 years old, a rough estimate would put me at just under 10,000 hours of tennis playing. These days when I'm not injured, my tennis coach and I hit once a week.

Cats!
My boyfriend and I take our ragdoll kitty to the beach, where she takes on the waves, tries to hunt the gulls (unsuccessfully) and otherwise gets her paws all muddy with wet sand. She even goes to the farmers' market in her stroller. Her trusty companion, our slightly younger and much svelter Bengal looks like a beautiful leopard, but acts like a field mouse.

Guiding light
As an advocate for a foster child, my sole purpose in the complex court and social services system is to be there for the child. An advocate is like a big sister: My primary mission is to expose the child to as much of the world as I can. And when she is older and can make her own decisions, she might also remember what wonderful things the world offers if only you stay on the right path.

Beauty icons
Angelina Jolie for her grace, smarts and sexiness, and Joyce Kreus, another DHC Customer Spotlight. How wonderful was she to get to know? She simply glows! I want to be like her.

All-time favorite beauty look?
I really do like the '20s look with sleek finger waves and dramatic eye makeup.

On feeling beautiful in your own skin
The self-confidence you feel and exude is who you are and is also the essence of being beautiful. Confidence could be the most attractive aspect of a person.

More about Aileen

Do you like to cook?
We love to grill! There is a wonderful Italian butcher shop in our neighborhood where we are able to get the most delectable meats. We treasure the local farmers' market where there is fresh produce to be had.

Where do you like to travel and why?
I can't sit still on an airplane, so I like the short hops. My most favorite is Hawaii. I have been to Oahu, Maui and Kauai but not to the Big Island. It's my next destination. It's got to be the blue water that draws me to Hawaii.

Why is skincare important to you?
Skincare helps me stay in my confidence zone. It's the way I put my best face forward when I go out into the world.

Favorite DHC products

CoQ10 Lotion
I step out of the shower and the first thing I do after drying off is apply CoQ10 Lotion. It instantly restores pure goodness to my face.

CoQ10 Eye Cream
I feel like I'm pampering my skin when I use it; I can feel it.

Q10 Water Mist
I use it all day long at work, especially during times when my skin is unhappy with me, the weather or anything else that might have offended it. There's a moment of fresh luxury when you spray into the air and walk through the Q10 mist.
