INTERVIEW WITH IVY LEE

Ivy Lee is an acupuncturist, herbalist and energy healer. I found Ivy through Instagram where I have been following her for a while. She just continues to inspire me with her wisdom and all that she shares. You can learn more about her in this interview. Please welcome, Ivy.

Dear Ivy, will you tell us a little bit about yourself? Who you are and what you do? I’m an acupuncturist, herbalist, and energy healer. I draw upon an expertise in Chinese Medicine from my ancestral roots and infuse other therapeutic modalities to create a multi-sensory healing experience. My specialty is in women’s health and I love to help women feel empowered in their body and in life.  

Why did you start to work with acupuncture / Chinese medicine? 
I grew up with Chinese Medicine from my family in Taiwan. Since I was young, I was very interested in learning about a variety of traditional healing practices. But being from an immigrant family, I felt the pressure of financial security and I went to work in corporate for many years. Then after a series of experiences I realized that I had a lot of knowledge and a unique gift for healing, and I felt a responsibility to share it with the world. That’s when I quit my corporate job and shifted to my path to doing acupuncture and healing work.


Can you tell what acupuncture is, and how it works? 
Chinese Medicine is based on a framework which sees that the body is intelligent and has an ability to heal itself. Symptoms and conditions are caused by imbalances in the body, so when the body is brought back into balance, the symptoms and conditions resolve. Acupuncture is one of the modalities within Chinese Medicine and it has been practiced for over 2,000 years. The insertion of very fine needles into specific points on the body influences the physiological functioning of the body and promotes balanced flow of energy. 

Which experiences in your life have had a big impact on your own self-development?  
I had lived and traveled to over 30 countries by the age of 30. This had a significant impact on my self-development because it opened my mind. It offered me different perspectives in viewing the world and in viewing myself. It gave me an understanding of the many ways of being and the commonalities in human experience. It empowered me with the belief that I can create myself and create my life. 

Which books have changed your life?
I read a lot of books on Buddhism when I was young and that has influenced the way I navigate life.  “When Things Fall Apart” by Pema Chodron. “The Practice of Lojong” by Traleg Kyabgon. “Loving Kindness” by Sharon Salzberg. “The Sacred Path of the Warrior” by Chögyam Trungpa. And so many more. 

What do you feel the world needs more of?
Forgiveness. This is needed to break the cycle of anger, hurt, and suffering. 

Do you have some daily rituals that you do every single day?
Sitting with tea, quieting the mind and coming to stillness.

Which people have inspired you most in your life?
My mother inspires me in many ways, she embodies so much resilience and strength. She raised me with the values of integrity and honesty, to be true to others and most importantly to yourself.

If people want to learn more about you, or support you in any kind of way, where can they do this?
I am the founder of Luminae Wellness in Oakland, California. I offer acupuncture treatments in-person at my healing space and I also offer virtual healing sessions. Reach out to me through my website www.luminaewellness.com or Instagram @luminaewellness

Thank you so much for answering my questions, and for being such a beautiful soul and sharing all your wisdom and for bringing a higher vibration to this world!

IF IT’S NOT SCHEDULED, IT’S NOT REAL

One of my big inspirations Marie Forleo, always says that “If it’s not scheduled, it’s not real“, and that’s what I want to talk about today.

If you don’t already know Marie Forleo and her youtube channel MarieTV, then you should definitely check it out! She has so much inspiring content, and has interviews with so many inspirational people (Tony Robbins, Brené Brown, Elizabeth Gilbert, Steven Pressfield etc.).

Anyways, Marie have this saying that “If it’s not scheduled, it’s not real“. And man, is that right! Yet, it’s so easy to forget.

We often have a list of all the things we want to do; workout, do meal prepping, hang out with our friends, work on that project etc. However, if you do not plan it – schedule it – find specific date and time for when to do it, it’s not real.

So in order to make your dreams and goals real, you need to sit down with yourself and plan when and where to work on your goals.

“If it’s not scheduled, it’s not real” – Marie Forleo

Let’s take an example: you want to start working out. That’s great. However, it’s also very unclear and vague. When should that be? And how?

Take your calendar out and make a commitment with yourself:
Every Monday, Wednesday and Friday I will go for a 25 minutes run.

Or, it could be: Every Tuesday from 9-11am I’ll work on creating content for my business.

Make it concrete. Make it actionable. Then put it into your calendar, and keep your commitments to yourself!

Question for you: What do you want to work on? Fx do you want to start working out? Do you have a specific project you want to work on? How can you break it down into actionable steps, and schedule it in your calendar?

INTERVIEW WITH NICOLE HEMMER

Nicole Hemmer is a teacher, inspirational speaker and a writer with passion for spirituality and soul work. I met Nicole through Instagram, and she was just such a ray of positive light and inspiration right from the beginning, and such a kind and inspirering soul. Nicole has been travelling around the world, doing soul work, and has worked with many people from all over the world mentoring them and guiding them. Nicole also just released her very first book, Soul on Fire, which you can read much more about in this interview. Please welcome, Nicole.

Dear Nicole, will you tell us a little bit about yourself? Who you are and what you do?

I am originally from Canada, lived in Europe the past 3 years and am currently based in Bali, Indonesia. I also traveled to 50 countries by the time I was 25 years old, and have had a strong fire in my heart for freedom and global transformation from a young age.

I am a teacher, inspirational speaker, writer, women’s empowerment mentor, and author. I’ve led international workshops, classes, sacred circle’s and retreats with hundreds of women around the world and did my Master’s degree in Transpersonal Psychology (the study of psychology, spirituality and consciousness). My passion and expertise is in inspiring women to step into their power, unleashing their soul’s voice in the world, soul embodiment and Divine Feminine Soul Leadership.

How did you first become interested in spirituality?

I first became interested in spirituality when I was 14 years old. I felt a strong hunger in my heart for spirituality and knew that my reason for being on this Earth was connected to this, and was a core component of my purpose. I also started to do yoga and meditation at this age, and was reading books on healing, the chakra’s, intuition, psychic abilities, eastern philosophy and consciousness. My mother was also open to spirituality and introduced me to crystals, colour baths, hands on healing, and personal development.

Which events in your life has completely changed your life?

Moving to Berlin when I was 25 years old changed my life, and was the catalyst for me to start doing the work with women that I was initiated and called to do. Living in Japan when I was 22 years old also changed my life, and brought me back to my soul’s essence and taught me what it means to be a woman in her feminine essence.

A paramount moment for me on my path was when my parents separated when I was 19 years old, and I entered a dark night of the soul period. During this time, I made the commitment to myself and vow that I would never allow any situation or circumstance to close my heart. I promised myself I would stay open no matter what throughout this lifetime, and always keep my heart open. To allow challenging and painful experiences to crack my heart open even wider, and allow pain and suffering to be the gateway to going deeper within myself….

Which books have changed your life?

Initiation by Elizabeth Haich

The Seven Wisdoms of Life by Shai Tubali

What do you feel the world needs more of?

I strongly feel that the world needs more love, presence and consciousness now more than ever. I feel that heart and soul aligned leadership in women is paramount in a time when the feminine has been denigrated and severely suppressed on the earth. Women need to step into their power and reclaim their voice. The earth is screaming for our help and support, and I feel it is my mission to be a beacon of expression for the Divine Feminine consciousness—to activate, ignite and initiate women into their soul and burning truth.

“I strongly feel that the world needs more love, presence and consciousness now more than ever”

What is your best advice for people dealing with self-doubt?

Self doubt is derived from the small self—and is not our true nature. When we connect to our Higher Self, that is rooted in Divine Confidence, Divine Knowing and Divine Trust—we live in unshakable confidence true to our soul. When we embody and connect to our soul, it is rooted in love and truth. Our small self is controlled by fear, lack and self doubt.

Do you have some daily rituals that you do every single day?

Everyday I place my hands on my heart when I wake up and when I go to sleep. I pray for people that come into my awareness everyday. I stay in an open state where I feel my inspiration and then take inspired action based on what I feel called to do. I love to spend time in nature. I love being in silence—for in silence I can feel and attune myself deeper to the wisdom and knowing of my heart.

What are your favourite practices to raise your vibration?

Some of my favourite practices to strengthen my energetic field is time in nature, time in water, and meditation.
I also love aromatherapy oils and rose water spray. Living here in Bali, I love to go to sacred water temples for purification and cleansing..

Which 3 people have inspired you most in your life?

Mary Magdalene, Elizabeth Haich, and Powerful Women Leaders of Light on this Earth that are fierce and true.

You have just released your first book, can you tell us a little bit about it?

Over the last year, I’ve been creating and birthing my first book entitled Soul On Fire: Divine Reminders on the Path of Awakening. This book is a sacred jewel of inspiration for any woman looking to deepen into her humanity—and her divinity. This project reflects my sacred work in the world and I am thrilled to be stepping forward with sharing it with the world…

The book contains transmissions and evolutionary adventures from my own journey, plus self-portraits captured during my travels around the world. My vision is by reading this book, you’ll receive an activation into your deepest truth and soul’s knowing. Whether you receive the words and images in this book as a meditation, or simply as sparkling soul musings, Soul On Fire will awaken, ignite and strengthen your remembrance and connection with the Divine in your own life.

Some of the chapters included in the book are: Authenticity, A New Earth and Feeling the Future, Living the Extraordinary, Beyond Fear, Pain, Warrior of Light, Natural Wild Beauty, Sisterhood, Divine Feminine, Divine Masculine, Money and Abundance, Clarity, Mystical Knowing, The Higher Self, Inspiration…etc.

If people want to learn more about you, or support you in any kind of way, where can they do this?

They can connect with me on Facebook, or check out my website and subscribe to my – Soul Inspiration – newsletter that I send to sisters and women of light around the world. Or follow me on Instagram which is actually how Camilla and I connected! 😉

INTERVIEW WITH ALANA OLIVERS

Alana Olivers is a very inspirering woman who I’m following on Instagram & Youtube. We have very similar interests, within health, skin, and the whole mind body connection. Alana works as a skin coach and is just such a positive person, and I am so happy to have created such a beautiful ‘online friendship’ with her, without even having met her in real life. I find Alana very inspirering, and she has so much knowledge within the field of skin & health, which she is going to share much more of in this interview.

Dear Alana, will you tell us a little bit about yourself? Who you are and what you do?

I was born and grew up in Switzerland but I now live all over the world. I am a skin coach (I help others to make their skin look and feel its best) and I run my own company in Switzerland where we produce 100% natural, personalized, cruelty free, vegan skin care. My passion is to empower and help others see how amazing their bodies’ healing abilities are and to show them how much modern medicine underestimates what the body and skin can do all by itself, without any pills, just by giving it the right ‘fuel’ and treating it as a whole.

I am an introvert who loves to read books about health, the skin, the brain, genetics, epigenetics, psychology and the mind, who didn’t have a social media account until 24 years old and now tries to figure out how it works while still feeling weird in front of a camera every time 🙂 .

I believe that our health is the biggest wealth we have in life and that we should appreciate and respect our body and trust in its abilities and I hope to inspire others to see that the same way.

You share lots of skincare tips on your Youtube and Instagram, what made you become interested in skin? And, how did you gain the knowledge that you’ve learned?

A couple of years ago I was diagnosed with something which made me spend a lot of time in the hospital getting treatments and surgery which ended up weakening my immune system massively. Apart from my completely weakened body, I started to get skin rashes and acne, my body overreacted to literally everything and no skin care helped. I tried everything from affordable to extremely expensive skin care, but somehow it just made things worse.

I started to look into the ingredient lists and I was shocked to find out how many chemicals were in there. I knew that there had to be a better way. I started to read all the books I could get my hands on about healing the skin and the body. I cleaned up my diet and my lifestyle as well as making my skin care myself to make sure I can control all the ingredients.

I decided to take courses in natural skin care, nutrition, holistic medicine, holistic healing etc. and I used every free minute to read everything about the skin and what influences its healing and wellbeing. Soon thereafter people started to take notice that my skin got much better and became interested in what I did, and I started to coach them with their own skin and through word of mouth I got more and more clients. That’s when I decided to make a Youtube and Instagram account to share what I love most with more people 🙂

What are your 5 best skincare tips?

  1. The foods you consume far outweigh the skin care you are applying topically, so make sure to heal your skin from within before spending money on something which can only (in the best case) help with the symptoms of your problem.
  2. NEVER be afraid of using oils on your skin. If you are choosing the right oil for your skin it will be the best thing you’ve ever done when it comes to skin care (and it won’t clog your pores)
  3. Be as gentle as you can and don’t overdo it with products (9 steps skin care systems were created by companies which want to sell you a loooot of products). Your skin was built to protect you from the world, it is an awesome organ and it just needs your support (not you trying to take over its job 🙂 )
  4. Never forget that your skin is just part of a whole organism, your body. You can never heal the skin without healing the body, and as soon as you heal your body, your skin will be healthy as well. 
  5. 80% of what you apply to your skin will be absorbed directly into your bloodstream. So make sure that the skincare you apply only contains ingredients which you would also feel comfortable with if you would have to eat it.



What is 1 thing you have experienced that most people do not think about when they want to improve their skin, which actually has a huge impact on how your skin looks?

Definitely the gut health. The health of our digestive tract influences the health of our skin directly. Many of my clients are a little surprised to say the least when I ask them about their bowel movements since they booked a consultation which should cover their skin problems. But your gut is an organ which is responsible to eliminate (literally:P) everything your body doesn’t need and the digestive tract also has the vital job when it comes to absorb nutrients and vitamins.

If your gut is overwhelmed or constipated it can happen that part of your already digested food gets reabsorbed into your bloodstream which leads to inflammation which in turn can lead to acne and/or rashes and eczema. It is so important to take care of your gut health, to me it is the seat of our health, really.

If your gut isn’t healthy your whole body (including your skin) is out of balance. So, make sure to eat enough pre- and probiotic foods, avoid processed foods and junk foods and lower your sugar intake. After taking antibiotics make sure to use probiotics to bring the “good bacteria” back into your digestive tract.

Do you have some daily rituals that you do every single day?

YEEEEEES 🙂 ! I am all about rituals, I believe that without creating small rituals around the things you want to improve in your life nothing really happens. The habits which made the biggest difference in my life are:

I always start my day with a 10-20 minutes Meditation and I usually also finish my day like this (it is one of the best rituals I have every implemented into my daily life).

The second thing I do is that I start every single day with lots of warm water (I either add lemon, ginger, turmeric, apple cider vinegar or some sort of tea to it, whatever I have on hand that day).

I also work out every single day since I believe that an active lifestyle is so important for a healthy body (and beautiful skinJ), I either run, go on a bicycle, go for a hike or do yoga.

Another ritual I have is that I read or listen to an audio book every day (usually before bedtime, and always when I commute) for at least 30min – 1 hour.



What is your skincare routine like?

My skin care routine is extremely simple. I use the oil cleansing method to cleanse my face in the evening. After that I always have a look at my skin and decide what it needs that day. That might just be some fresh Aloe Vera or a serum, or a mask, Vitamin C, or a product/DIY which contains AHA or BHA to exfoliate my skin (I only exfoliate my skin 1x a week). After that I just apply my 100% natural night cream and go to bed.

In the morning I usually don’t wash my face at all. I use some rice water toner (I have a recipe for that on my channel) and then I either apply some of my day cream (if my skin feels dry that day) or just leave it at that. Once to twice a week I go to the sauna and apply some manuka honey as a face mask. That’s basically it 🙂

You have also created your own skincare line. Can you tell us about the products you have created?

My Skin Care Company is based in Switzerland and is called “Natural Choices”. And this is exactly what the products are all about. They are 100% natural, cruelty free and vegan, they are free from  chemicals and preservatives as well as silicones and parabens.

I think our skin is so different from everybody else’s. That’s why all the products are personalized (that means a person comes for a skin analysis or has a skin coaching session with me and after that we choose each ingredient for each product specifically for that person and then creates a unique product).

The benefit of that is first of all that we can address the specific skin problems with ingredients which matches the specific needs of our client, and also that we can change the formulation once the skin starts to get better (as well as making adjustments for Winter/Summer time).

Which books have changed your life?

  • Super Genes (Deepak Chopra M.D & Rudolph Tanzi Ph.D.)
  • The Four Agreements (Don Miguel Ruiz)
  • The Telomere Effect (Dr. Elizabeth Blackburn & Dr. Elissa Epel)

What is your best advice for people who are dealing with skin issues and are feeling insecure because of their skin?

For sure it is always hard to deal with skin problems just because it is usually not something you can easily cover up and everyone sees it so you feel exposed and judged, at least that is how I felt.

The most important advice I can give is to try to shift your perspective about it. It is not an easy thing to do, but it is truly life changing.

Don’t see the rashes or pimples or dry flakes as something your body does against you but as something it does FOR you. Try to see it as the language your body communicates with you. It tries to tell you that something is wrong, that for example your digestive tract or your liver is overwhelmed (breakouts, dull skin f.e.), or you don’t get enough sleep (dull skin, dark circles), or that your body is chronically inflamed (rashes, eczema, acne).

If you look at your skin problems from that perspective, then first of all you can figure out the cause for it and solve your problem at its root instead of just treating the symptoms, plus you enter into a much deeper relationship with your own body and will soon learn to read every sign it gives you and act accordingly.

Once you have been able to heal your skin you’ll be so much stronger and grateful for the process you had to go through because other people will never get the chance to learn this.


Which 3 people have inspired you most in your life?

Deepak Chopra

He is one of the leading figures when it comes to the body mind connection. His books introduced me to Ayurveda, to mediation and taught me how important our mindset is for the healing process of our body.

Walt Disney

Walt Disney inspired my whole childhood into my adult life until now. Not him directly as a person but his movies. I sometimes still find myself scrolling through Netflix ending up watching Mulan or the Beauty and the Beast. I am a Disney Girl :p

My Brother

My Brother and me went through a lot together and have an extremely strong relationship. He unknowingly teaches me new lessons every single day but the most important thing he taught me is probably that being yourself and to stand up for who you are is certainly not always the easiest way but that it is always worth it, and in the end the most rewarding.

If people want to learn more about you, or support you in any kind of way, where can they do this?

I am on Youtube (Alana Olivers), as well as on Instagram (oliversalana) and for sure if anybody likes to check out Natural Choices it’s www.naturalchoices.ch and naturalchoices on Instagram

Thank you so much dear for answering my questions, and for being such a ray of sunlight that you are and for sharing your knowledge with such an enthusiasm and passion!

Thank you so much, I feel extremely honored 🙂  You are such a beautiful person!

THIS TOO SHALL PASS

Whenever you are having a hard time, or if you are in pain, I think one of the best things to remember is the saying “this too shall pass“. Life is all about ups and downs, and if you’ve never heard about the ‘regression to the mean’ which is actually used in more economical terms, but is also very relevant in terms of life, it is about how life always balance things out and gets back to the center – to the middle. Life is about ups and downs, and life would never be worth living if it was all ups all the time, because without downs, we wouldn’t even know what ups were.

 

There wouldn’t be light without darkness, and the other way around. Just like yin and yang, and there is always some darkness in the light and some light in the darkness.

 

I think this is such an important thing to remember whenever you are going through some hard times and start thinking that life is just miserable, then begin to say to yourself that it is okay that life is hard right now, but it will get better. And usually, those who have gone through hard times in life and get out on the other side turns out to be the most wise, loving and caring people  – because they have experienced these down-times.

I’m all about positivity, happy moments and looking at life with joy and happiness. But, whenever I’m having a hard time or I’m sad I try my best to let that be okay as well. Or whenever I’m feeling pain, whether that be a headache or stomach problems, I try to just stay calm, relax and tell myself that this is also going to pass (and I also pay close attention to what my body tells me, because pain in the body is usually the body telling you to either relax, stress down, that you might have eaten something which was not good for you or something else. If you experience regular pain in a specific area, then really try to pay attention to what you have been doing and if any patterns occur).

That was just a long ramble about life. I hope it makes sense, and that you got something out of it.

HOLISTISK SKØNHEDSINTERVIEW MED NELLE NOELL

Jeg elsker at læse om andres skønhedsrutiner og små ritualer, og jeg valgte derfor at skrive til nogle kvinder som jeg finder særligt inspirerende indenfor dette område.

Den fjerde i rækken af holistiske skønhedsinterviews er Nelle. Nelle er uddannet kosmetolog, og har arbejdet med adskillelige make-up og beauty brands. Derudover har hun arbejdet med spillefilm, musikvideoer, reklamefilm, lookbooks og fotoserier til magasiner. I dag har Nelle en stor passion for det holistiske, hvor hun på sin blog, youtube og Instagram deler ud omkring alt fra hudpleje, make-up, sundhed, selvværd og meget andet!

Hvis du vil vide mere omkring Nelles skønhedsrutiner, så læs med nedenfor.

Hvad er, ifølge dig, det bedste man kan gøre for dig selv og sin hud/krop (både fysisk og mentalt)?

Meditation er det korte svar. Jeg tror på, at ro i krop og sind er det bedste man kan give sig selv og dermed også huden. Når vi formår at slappe af nedsættes kroppens stress hormoner og cellerne kan nyde godt af alt det gode vi spiser i stedet for at stresse, hvilket jeg har erfaret giver en enormt flot hud. Win, Win!

Hvad er dine yndlings produkter til ansigtet?

Rens: Youth To The People ansigts rens

Toner: Caudalie Beauty elixir

Serum: Glossier super bounce og EGF serum fra Bioeffect

Dagcreme: Jurlique Moisture Replenishing Day Cream

Gua sha fra honest beauty talk

 

Hvad er dine yndlingsprodukter til huden?

En god hamp handske og body olie. Det kan være mange forskellige. Plus gode, rene kosttilskud. Er ret glad for brandet vitaviva!

 

Har du en særlig ’selvforkælelses rutine’ når du rigtig skal forkæle dig selv og din hud, krop og sjæl, og hvad består den af?

En god bog, serie eller plade, en ansigtsmaske, ny neglelak, lækre æteriske olier og en god kop te, raw kakao eller et glas vin. Så bliver det ikke meget bedre.

 

Hvordan er din aften rutine?

Jeg afrenser, toner, bruger serum og natcreme. Plejer gerne at læse en bog og finde ind til et ”Happy space” inden jeg går i seng. Jeg tror på, det er vigtigt at tænke positive tanker inden, man falder i søvn, så man igennem hele natten sender gode vibrationer og manifesterer det gode i livet

green matcha latte in a cup

 

Hvordan er din morgen rutine?

Jeg vågner kl. 8 gerne efter 8-9 (10) timers søvn – elsker at sove! Så tjekker jeg Instagram og siger godmorgen til min kat (Emma), derefter mediterer vi (hun ligger på min mave) i 20 minutter. Hvis jeg har god tid laver jeg et par yogaøvelser, ellers sætter jeg straks min playliste på, med en masse sange der gør mig glad, så jeg er sikker på at min dag starter med god energi. Derfra drikker jeg en grøn spinat smoothie og en stor matcha latte og så i gang med min hudplejerutine, som minder meget om den jeg laver om aftenen, bare omvendt. Så er dagen i gang!

 

Tusinde tak til Nelle for at besvare spørgsmålene og for at lade os få et kig ind i hendes skønhedsrutiner!

HOLISTISK SKØNHEDSINTERVIEW MED TINE EMILIE SVENDSEN

Jeg elsker at læse om andres skønhedsrutiner og små ritualer, og jeg valgte derfor at skrive til nogle kvinder som jeg finder særligt inspirerende indenfor dette område.

Den tredje i rækken af holistiske skønhedsinterviews er Tine Emilie Svendsen, som er den anden af grundlæggerne bag det nye danske make-up mærke Miild. Jeg har selv mødt Tine et par gange, og ligesom Tanja, er hun også et rigtig hjertevarmt menneske. Jeg finder masser af inspiration i Tines Instagram og i hendes små insta stories. Hvis du vil lære lidt mere omkring Tines skønhedsrutiner, så læs med nedenfor.

Hvad er, ifølge dig, det bedste man kan gøre for dig selv og sin hud/krop (både fysisk og mentalt)?

Det bedste jeg kan gøre for mig selv er at huske at bruge tid på mig selv. Tage et langt aften bad, og koble fra. Jeg tror på at det er vigtigt at man finder et sted, hvor vi bare er opmærksomme på os selv, og ikke behøves være noget for nogen andre end for en selv.


Hvad er dine yndlings produkter til ansigtet?

Mine yndlingsprodukter til mit ansigt er en god serum, en olie, og en maske. Med de tre produkter kan jeg nå langt. Lige så meget som jeg elsker at have makeup på, lige så meget elsker jeg den rene hud. Med en maske føler jeg at min hud bliver renset lidt ekstra. En olie som jeg både kan bruge i ansigtet og på min krop efter det varme skønne bad. Jeg prøver lidt forskellige serummer af. Lige nu bruger jeg en fra Purely, som giver mig en let fornemmelse, men samtidig fugt. Så lægger min makeup sig også pænere.

 

Hvad er dine yndlingsprodukter til huden?

Jeg er meget glad for olier. Jeg bruger dem til mine spidser i håret, ansigtet, og på min krop. Naturlig Olie, har lavet mange forskellige, og jeg har fået hjælp til hvilket der passer til mig. De laver nogle gode guides på nettet.


Har du en særlig ’selvforkælelses rutine’ når du rigtig skal forkæle dig selv og din hud, krop og sjæl, og hvad består den af?

Jeg er glad for Karmamejus tørbørste. Hvis jeg holder mig-tid, er den fantastisk. Så starter jeg med at bruge den, også et bad efterfølgende. Det er simpelthen så skønt!


Hvordan er din aften rutine?

Hver aften fjerner jeg makeup! Jeg tror kun at jeg har prøvet at “glemme” det to-tre gange. Jeg synes bare det er så vigtigt at få fjernet makeup og snavs fra dagen. Så kan du lægge dig på puden, og have en aaaah-følelse. Jeg bruger olie til at fjerne min øjenmakeup, der bruger jeg mine fingre til at smøre det af, sammen med vand. Så bruger jeg en foam lige for tiden fra Matas Natur serie. Jeg bruger en serum, og en olie, eller dagcreme udover, og så er jeg klar til at gå i seng.


Hvordan er din morgen rutine?

Det første jeg gør når jeg står op, er at tjekke Instagram, om der er nogle som har lagt smukke Miild billeder op og tagget os 🙂 Så tager jeg et hurtigt bad, ind i mellem laver jeg det til et koldt bad, så jeg rigtig vågner 🙂
Så smører jeg mig ind i serum til ansigtet, efterfulgt af olie til krop og ansigt. Så lægger jeg selvfølgelig min makeup med Miild produkterne, og sætter lidt hår. Jeg gør ikke meget ved mit hår, enten nede, eller i en lille klemme. Jeg bruger Mason Pearson børsten, og elsker den! Jeg synes virkelig jeg kan mærke og se at den giver en god volume.

Tusinde tak til Tine for at besvare spørgsmålene, og for at lade os få et indblik i hendes skønhedsrutiner!

HOLISTISK SKØNHEDSINTERVIEW MED CAROLINA ELLIE

Jeg elsker at læse om andres skønhedsrutiner og små ritualer, og jeg valgte derfor at skrive til nogle kvinder som jeg finder særligt inspirerende indenfor dette område.

Den anden i rækken af holistiske skønhedsinterviews er Carolina. Carolina er holistisk sundhedsterapeut og livsstilsmentor og lever af at hjælpe andre med at finde årsagen bag deres symptomer og skabe den krop og det liv som de drømmer om. Jeg er elle vild med at følge Carolina på Instagram og lære omkring hendes mange gode tips og tricks til hvordan man få flottere hud og blive et sundere menneske. Jeg har selv fulgt en af Carolinas workshops og fik masser af gode guldkorn til hvordan jeg kunne optimere min egen sundhed. Jeg har også mødt Carolina i virkeligheden, og hun er et skønt menneske der bare stråler af livsglæde og passion for sit eget felt.
Hvis du vil vide mere omkring Carolinas egne skønhedsrutiner, så læs med nedenfor.

Hvad er, ifølge dig, det bedste man kan gøre for dig selv og sin hud/krop (både fysisk og mentalt)?

2 ting: At dyrke yoga, og spise grøntsager. Det lyder super kedeligt, men det er så sandt. Vi komplicerer ofte vores krop og sundhed, og vi glemmer det mest basale. Jeg ser det gang på gang hos mine klienter – vi bliver nødt til at gå back to basics! Tilbage i køkkenet med en røvfuld grøntsager og snit 😉
Yoga er det mest fantastiske system til både krop og sind, og du bliver beviseligt gladere, mere tilfreds, og roligere indeni. Det er et uundværligt afbræk i en travl hverdag (og travlt samfund), og jeg ville ønske at alle verdenslederne startede deres dag med 30 minutters yoga 😉
 

Hvad er dine yndlings produkter til ansigtet?

Traumeel-salve, som er en homøopatisk salve, du kan få i helsekosten. Det er et vidunderprodukt til uren hud! Jeg bruger den som afsluttende creme inden jeg går i seng, hvis jeg får en bums. Den er fuldstændig uundværlig. Derudover elsker jeg Avivirs ansigtscreme med hyaluronsyre, og Jane Iredale’s Purepressed Base Mineral Foundation. For f*nden, det er en god foundation, der endda plejer min hud mens jeg har den på. Alle pengene værd!

Hvad er dine yndlingsprodukter til huden?

Olier og ler. Jeg bruger ikke penge på dyre skønhedsprodukter og dippedutter. Jeg holder mig til de rene råvarer og forkæler min hud med ler, hybenkerneolie, aloe vera og massage. Jeg er også blevet stor fan af oilcleansing/pulling, som jeg snart skriver et indlæg omkring. Har aldrig haft pænere hud! 

Har du en særlig ’selvforkælelses rutine’ når du rigtig skal forkæle dig selv og din hud, krop og sjæl, og hvad består den af?

Enten en tur i kurbad hos Frederiksberg Kurbad, hvor der er saunagus og hjemmelavet bodyscrub. Min krop og sjæl er helt smørblød efter sådan en tur, og jeg skal nærmest skrabes væk med dejskraber efter sådan et par timer. Ellers elsker jeg at få en deluxe mani-pedi hos Nails Cph på Borgergade, som er tæt på, hvor jeg bor. De russiske kvinder der har det er effektive og kan virkelig deres kram.
 

Hvordan er din aften rutine?

Jeg renser mit ansigt enten med oilcleansing eller rasuller, og masserer mit ansigt igennem med min dagcreme og olie, så huden får let rødme. På den måde optager huden meget mere de gode indholdsstoffer, og får transporteret affaldsstofferne væk.
Inden jeg skal sove, får jeg mine kosttilskuds-cocktail: 2 x Mega B-Stress fra Solaray, of 3 kapsler Trypton*t fra Naturdrogertiet. Man sover som en drøm på den kombi!

Hvordan er din morgen rutine?

Min hund vækker min kæreste og jeg, fordi den vil ud at gå, og derefter skal jeg have morgenmad. Jeg ELSKER morgenmad, og er altid sulten når jeg vågner. Jeg får en kæmpe grøn smoothie med alskens gode sager i, en kop god øko-kaffe, og så ser jeg Go’Morgen Danmark. Jeg ville ønske, at jeg var sådan en type der mediterede og sad i Lotus-stilling om morgenen, men det gør jeg altså ikke. Til gengæld er det mega hyggeligt, og jeg bliver i godt humør af det. Så tager jeg meditationen senere 😉

Tusinde tak til Carolina for at besvare spørgsmålene og give os et indblik i hendes skønhedsrutiner!
