4
steps to
skin
BEAUTIFUL,
R A DIANT
Written by Paulina Perez
1
Cleanser
Simple is key here. You need to find a good cleanser that your skin responds well to
and stick with it. Do not overwash— once in the morning and evening is all your skin
needs. Use lukewarm water— never wash your face with hot or cold water (both can
cause broken capillaries).

To tone or
not to tone?
Some people skip this step, but it is a great way to remove residue or cleanser left
on your face, restore your skin’s pH balance, shrink pores and remove oil. Apply a
small amount of toner to a soft cotton ball or pad and gently blot your face.
Moisturizer
They come in all shapes and sizes, and finding the perfect moisturizer for you
is essential for healthy, glowing skin. Apply morning and night; if desired, get one
with anti-aging/correcting benefits. When you start caring for your skin — by good
hydration and strong collagen and elastin — not only will you see a huge difference in
four weeks, you will look more radiant and your makeup can be applied effortlessly on
your fresh canvas.
Eye Cream
I get asked all the time: Can I just use my face cream under my eyes? Although in theory it
sounds OK, you are not giving your eyes what they need. The skin under your eyes is much
thinner than the skin on your face, creating two completely different skin textures … with two
very different needs.
Unlike general face cream, eye cream targets specific eye-area issues, like puffiness, fine
lines and dark circles. It also tends to be more emollient since skin under your eyes is much
drier than your face. Think of your skin like a grape: If the grape stays nice and moisturized,
it is smooth and round. As soon as it starts to lose moisture, it becomes a dry raisin, which
in our skin means wrinkles! This last step soon became my favorite when I saw how much
better my concealer looked when I applied it after using eye cream.

are going through some of the things I have
experienced in my lifetime. My mom died
of breast cancer when I was young. I can
remember going with her to her doctor’s visits
and playing in the lobby and in the parking lot.
One of my goals is to help build a kids’ zone
at our local breast cancer treatment center so
that kids can come with their mom and be
supervised and play games and do activities
while waiting. My foundation also helps kids
with Crohn’s and provides encouragement
and instruction to young kids about being
healthy and active.
JLL: The Jaguars traded up to draft a young
quarterback out of Missouri, Blaine Gabbert,
giving up a second-round pick in the process.
You will be asked to mentor the “quarterback
of the future.” How do you view that role, and
what will be the first piece of advice you give
him?
JLL: Every kid playing sports likes to emulate
their favorite player. Is there a football player
that you wanted to be like when you grew
up? What was it about that player that made
you want to be like him?
DG: Lawrence Taylor. I loved the way he
approached the game and his attitude toward
winning. He gave it his all and was the ultimate
team player.
JLL: You lost your mother to breast cancer
at a young age. How did that impact you, and
what is your fondest memory of her? Who
were some of the most influential people in
your development after she was gone?
DG: I remember a lot about my mom. She was
my hero. The way she handled her diagnosis
was amazing to me. She never gave up and
was always positive about life and her circumstances. When she was gone, my oldest
brother, Anthony, took on the parental role.
He made sure that we — my sister, Andrianne, and brother Quincy and I — did our
schoolwork and completed our responsibilities. I remember one time, Anthony told me to
48 | July /August 2011
take out the trash and I forgot. He got me up
at 5 a.m. to make me do my chores.
JLL: You were diagnosed in 2004 with
Crohn’s disease. This painful disease affects
1.4 million Americans, but it is not widely
known. What do you think people should
know about it?
DG: They should know that although the
disease is very personal and private, you
shouldn’t be ashamed of it. I know kids have a
hard time dealing with the whole going-to-thebathroom stuff at school and having to explain
to their friends what they are going through. I
would tell them, ‘Do not be ashamed!’ I feel like
the Lord has blessed me with Crohn’s so that
I can be a blessing to others.
JLL: You started the David Garrard Foundation. Tell me about it and what your goals are
for the foundation. You have an impressive list
of corporate sponsors. How do people get
involved?
DG: The David Garrard Foundation is my way
of helping those who have gone through or
DG: I remember coming into the league, and
Mark Brunell was the starter. He was such a
mentor to me both on and off the field. I am
actually a member at his church now and have
been since coming to Jacksonville. He did
more for me than he will ever know beyond
the football field. My advice to Blaine would be
to not get caught up in the hype that accompanies the QB position. The same people that
love you one week will scream for your head
the next. Keep your priorities straight, because
before you know it, you’ll be on the backside
of your career. Work hard and play hard, but
remember who you are and what is most
important.
JLL: At 34 years of age, how much longer
do you want to play football? What do you
see yourself doing once you retire from the
NFL?
DG: I still feel young, and as much as I would
like to keep playing for 10 more years, I know
that probably won’t happen. My family and I
love Jacksonville, and after 10 years here, I can
say that I feel like this is home to me. My goal
is to win a Super Bowl for this city, help Blaine
take over the role as starting QB and then retire
a Jaguar. How many years that will take is yet
“My message
to Jaguar fans
would be to stay
supportive. ... they
are our 12th man
and they get us
hyped on
game day.”
to be seen, but if I could have it my way, that’d
be my goal.
JLL: The Jaguars had a good chance to make
the play-offs last year but couldn’t “get over the
hump” and win the game(s) they needed to win
at the end of the year. What is going to make the
difference this year to propel the Jaguars into
the play-offs?
DG: It all comes down to execution. We have
the talent to be an elite team. We started off
very strong this past year but couldn’t put the
nail in the coffin when the time came. Although
I am a veteran and we had quite a few on our
team, we were still young. We are a team that
is built around a team mentality. To win, we
must all be contributors.
JLL: What message do you have for Jaguar DG: Both sides need to figure it out
fans? What can we expect to see this season? and stop trying to ruin it for the fans.
There is enough money to go around
DG: My message to Jaguar fans would be and a solution cannot be that hard to
to stay supportive. We are not a team like the come up with.
Steelers that has a nationwide fan base. That
makes the fans that we do have that much JLL: We all see a tough, competitive David
more important. They are our 12th man and
they get us hyped on game day. This year,
our fans can expect to get 100 percent effort
from each and every player that wears teal.
Obviously that doesn’t translate into a championship, but that is and will be our ultimate goal
in the end. It always has been, and this year
is no different.
Garrard on the field. Who is David Garrard off
the field? What do you like to do during the offseason? Do you have any hobbies?
DG: David Garrard off the field is a big teddy
bear. I love to golf, fish and, most important, spend time with my beautiful wife and
awesome son. During the off-season, we love
to deep-sea fish and go on trips, whether it’s
