Tell us a little about yourself… age, where you live, what you do, etc.
I am 21 and currently living in Boulder, Colorado finishing up my last semester of school. Home is in Newport Beach, California, so I will be heading back there or LA when I finish up and graduate in December. I am hoping to do something within the fashion industry once I graduate or possibly start a line of my own... we will see!
What are your biggest skin care concerns? How do you overcome them?
My biggest skin care concern is dealing with dryness. I have always had really dry skin and especially when traveling or moving back and forth between CO and CA my skin kind of freaks out a little. I love doing hydrating masks, lots of moisturizer, and even oils/serums a couple nights a week to really make it soft and smooth.
How do you incorporate the Clay Mask into your skin care routine?
I have been using the Clay Mask once or twice a week to help keep my skin clear. If I have a little breakout or some random pimples, I use it as a spot treatment on the areas that need it most. Or if I am just feeling like my skin is craving a mask I put it all over my face and it feels very rejuvenated after. I love the Clay Mask and it truly helps clear up my skin when necessary.
How do you take care of yourself on a deeper level (what do you do to stay active, healthy, and embrace your natural beauty?)
I am a very dedicated yogi. Not only to help me stay active but it really helps my mind in being present and leaving the outside world for a little bit. I also love going on hikes or doing spin classes to incorporate some cardio into my routine. I don't follow any strict diet, but I enjoy eating healthy meals consisting of lots of fruits and veggies. My favorite meal is a hearty quinoa or rice bowl with veggies! I just feel better throughout my days when I eat healthy and am able to sleep better at night. Right now, I have been trying to cut meat out of my diet and am really considering going vegetarian as it has been making me feel a lot better and more awake/alert.
Any last words or advice?!
Some advice I always try to remind myself of is don't take things personal, focus on staying grounded and self aware... It's key!
