What does beauty mean to you?
I see beauty more from the inside. Sure there are millions of physically beautiful people (just look at Instagram) but do they have compassion, honesty, a willingness to change the world? This is what I see as beauty and also looking after you from the inside out.
What do you love the most about the work you do?
I get the opportunity to meet some amazing people I have been fans of for many years. I also love working on exciting projects that will soon be seen by thousands once released. Also just working on every day people and getting the chance for them to see themselves in a different light.
What is an average day in the life of Ant ?
Every day is different, but most days I am up early walking my St Bernard dog, then starting my day with the gym or early meetings. Then onto emails to do invoices, quotes etc (not exciting) Then I would go to the jobs that are booked for that day. Some days I am starting really early (especially for shoots). Other days I can be doing private jobs that can be at all hours, in any location. Some days I am also travelling to a shoot so it’s an early start to the airport. That’s one of the things I do love most is not one day is ever the same.
What do you do to give back to yourself? what is your favorite self care ritual?
Well as you know I do love my skincare products and I ALWAYS take the time to treat my skin. I love using my OrganiQ Cleanse and Condition as it always makes my skin feel SO amazing after. I also once a week do a scrub with one of the body scrubs as I have all the flavours and they are amazing for the skin. We often forget about the skin on our bodies (especially men) and this is such a great easy way of giving a great hit of TLC. I also get sent SO many skin care products so am lucky to be able to lay, relax and give them a go.
What do you do to Nourish your body?
I use the OrganiQ body scrubs, they truly are a treat. I love how easy it is to do, but you get maximum results. I am getting older so it gets harder to reach those places that need more care and with this its just glide on, scrub and rinse. SO easy!
What is your daily skincare routine?
I have really sensitive skin so use the Cleanse and Condition as it calms my skin and takes away a lot of the redness I naturally get. I then like to use the hydrating mist, The skin renewal serum followed by a very simple moisturizer.
What is your Number one skincare secret?
I never knew just rinsing with water is not great for your skin, you still need something to wash and treat the skin. That’s why I love doing the scrubs as it helps the skin to asorb and keep the moisture in the skin. It also gets rid of any dead skin cells so makes the skin look renewed.
What is your favorite OrganiQ product and why?
Do I have to pick one? I am a HUGE fan of the cleanse and condition. I have never had my skin feel so good after using something. I have terribly reactive skin so it was a miracle my skin loved it so much. But that comes down to the ingredients, natural is always better!
If you could pass on one piece of guidance or thought to women and men world wide - what would it be?
To stop competing with others and to take others opinions with a grain of salt. Life is short, we have to embrace and love ourselves for all the good and bad and enjoy the time we have here. Also treat animals and the planet right, they are a god given gift.
