For me, beauty is more than just how we appear on the outside, it’s about how we nourish our body, our attitudes towards one another, and the energy we surround ourselves with. Someone’s beauty is not about what they look like, it’s about how they treat themselves and others too.
I love being able to give a person the support and tools they need to feel better about themselves and how they look. I always find it paramount to engage with clients about how they feel about themselves and what their biggest problem with their skin is. In turn, this helps me, to help them.
My days differ by the minute! I have three young children at home so nothing is ever guaranteed. I aim to get everyone off to school/kindy in an “orderly” fashion, though this rarely happens... I don’t get a lot of time to myself but if it’s a day I am off work, I make an important effort to hit the gym, enjoy a good coffee and take an hour of quiet time to catch my breath and recharge.
I like to take time to enjoy my own company, though it is a rarity! Sometimes it’s a simple face mask at 9:30pm once everyone is asleep and my home is quiet... other times it’s a walk barefoot on the beach to ground myself.
I listen to it. For me, this means;
- eating, not skipping meals and adding in healthy snacks to keep my energy levels up
- giving myself time to rest, not simply pushing through and on to the next task
- exercising, making the most of my gym membership, or going for a walk and getting some fresh air & vitamin D
I’m a big believer in this one, it’s all about routine!
AM - SkinBetter Science enzyme cleanser, SkinBetter Science interfuse eye cream AspectDr Active C serum, AspectDr Multi B Plus serum, AspectSun SPF 50+
PM - I remove my make up with a simple micellar water first, AspectDr Deep Clean cleanser, AspectDr Complete Pigment Plus serum, AsepctDr Exfol A serum, AspectDr Resveratrol moisturiser.
I’m not sure it’s a secret, because I tell everyone to do it! I always drink a minimum of 2 litres of water a day, wear a GOOD quality SPF regardless of the season/weather and invest in a reputable medical grade skincare.
I absolutely love the Native Honey Body Scrub, not only does it smell divine but it exfoliates AND moisturisers, it also is completely natural and organic so I know it won’t cause irritation.
The biggest impression you can have on the world is to be true to yourself and believe you’re just as beautiful, inside and out, as the girl standing next to you.
