Where do you live: Los Angeles, CA
How did you discover green beauty: I would say the event that made me dive head first into green beauty was the day a popular drugstore body oil gave me a bad reaction. I grew a huge cyst on the back of my thigh and had to have it removed in the ER. That same day I transitioned into using all natural body products.
What advice would you share with someone who is interested in transitioning their beauty regime: Start with the basics and you will find more products as you go. Make sure your daily essentials are green and you will start to see a huge change in your skin.
Tell us about your daily makeup routine: Less is more. I love the no makeup makeup look. I go for a full coverage natural foundation, fill in my brows, give my lashes some length and i’m out the door.
One beauty product you can’t be without: I can’t live without rosewater.
You have beautiful skin. What do you do to care for your complexion: I used to have a lot of acne and I discovered that treating it with gentle skin soothing products cured it. This is why I love the soothing ph balancing benefits of rose water.
Skincare favorites that work: I love activated charcoal cleaners and my OSEA Malibu Blemish Balm. It’s a must have for summer time.
You mentioned that you are a minimalist. What are a few tips for people who are wanting to de-clutter their beauty routines? Start a capsule makeup collection and find your essentials. You will naturally begin to toss everything you don’t genuinely love.
Hair care must haves: Apple Cider Vinegar is a must have for me. I have a huge problem with build up so ACV rinses leave my scalp feeling fresh.
Go-to fragrance: I do not currently have a fav fragrance, so i’d say I like the lingering scent that left behind from my body oil which is sweet almond and flower waters!
Go-to shop for green beauty: Credo Beauty
Favorite high-end beauty product: I love the Kjaer Weis Cream Foundation!
Favorite drugstore item: Physicians Formula 2 in 1 Lash Boosting Eyeliner
Green beauty dupe: Hynt Beauty’s DUET Perfecting concealer! This concealer replaced a very high end popular conventional concealer I used to love.
Beauty Secret: Double Cleansing. I love using an oil cleaner at night before my water based cleanser to make sure all my makeup is removed. This prevents future breakouts.
Why do you think self-care is so important: Self care leads to mental clarity. When you take a second to care for yourself you will radiate so much love and light to others. It took me a very long time to learn this.
Who inspires you: Zoe Saldana has been a huge inspiration to me. The confidence she has comes from within and it shows. Her beauty is effortless.
Final thoughts: For anyone transitioning into the world of green beauty, don’t forget to drop your conventional standards of beauty with it. Embrace your natural beauty and realize that you are uniquely beautiful.
