Welcome to the second installment from my new series all about holistic beauty! I’m sharing interviews with a variety of women asking about their holistic beauty rituals. Some are beauty experts, some are just regular gals like you and me. Let the holistic beauty secrets begin!
Meet Stephanie, a Denver native and born ice princess who is working towards her next career adventure as a Medical Esthetician. Stephanie convinced me that I should really be wearing facial sunscreen every day here in sunny Colorado, and gave me my first facial I’ve had in many years (a mud facial which you must try).
How do you approach aging and beauty?
Well, at the moment I am going to school to be a medical esthetician and am realizing more and more how important it is to take care of yourself in all aspects of life. I am definitely still learning but not only is eating right and exercising wonderful tools but there are also simple home care regimens of taking care of your outer looks, as in your skin that also need just as much lovin’. So drinking water and using SPF is a simple way to get started.
What are your daily beauty rituals?
I wake up early, take a shower wash and moisturize my skin, using Image products. The Image line is amazing but you can check that out on your own. And I do the same at night. I also have been using the Amor Moor Mud recently and the effects have been very noticeable.
What are some rituals that you feel all women should be doing?
Always use and SPF and enjoy what you eat!
Do you have any beauty rituals or natural products that you have recently tried and/or incorporated into your routine?
I mentioned above Amor Moor Mud above and I must say if you are looking for something natural, then this is one of the most natural products you can find.
Moor Mud is a therapy quality peat (PEAT mud bogs of Europe) – an organic substance. This product is a natural decomposition of plants under special conditions. Moor Mud contains organic herbs, flowers and grasses. Over a period of thousands of years, this residue transformed into a fine paste that easily dissolves in water, it has an unusual concentration of bio-minerals, trace elements of vitamins, amino acids, plant hormones and fatty acids in a molecular form that is easy for the human skin to absorb, which the majority of us don’t get on a daily basis.
I take mud baths once every other week to detox my entire body and enjoy mud masks 2 times a week. I have definitely seen a difference in how youthful my skin looks these days.
How do you eat for beauty?
As healthy as possible! I’m only human and right now plenty of fruits and veggies along with yummy proteins and chocolate because I can’t live without chocolate.
Any beauty secrets you want to share?
Sun damage is a real thing. Most people don’t realize that your sunscreen really only lasts for about 2 hours. And hiding in the shade is only 4% coverage. So just try to protect your skin it is one the most important organs of the body.
What else do you do to support vibrancy and beauty?
Investing in ME is the best thing I could do!
Love yourself and treat yourself to things that make you have. Without happiness beauty can’t thrive!
