Who is your beauty inspiration? Coco Chanel -- effortless, chic, and timeless beauty that will always matter.
What product/treatment/beauty indulgence do you spend the most on? Essential oils used in an evening bath: rare jasmine, precious rose otto, and 15-year-old patchouli. And I have a lipstick habit too.
What do you spend the least on? Body care; I use a loofah and jojoba and peppermint oil. Cheap, cheerful, and wonderfully effective.
What does age mean to you? Aging is a daily reminder to focus on what is most precious.
What's the most interesting thing you've learned about skin/hair/nails/beauty this year? That petroleum and mineral oil sit on the surface of the skin. It cannot help below the skin's surface where moisture is most needed.
What's the one thing you do (not product-based) that you think affects your appearance more than anything else? Think positively! When I am feeling optimistic, I relax, smile, and I'm easy going. I think I look better too.
Why naturals? They are renewable, harvested, grown, internationally sourced, and touched by the human hand. They posses nourishing and beneficial food for the skin, lips, and nails, which simply cannot be made artificially. It's the difference between Tang and orange juice.
