Hi Joanna this @the_dymi some ways that I practice self care is to make sure I don’t overwork myself and spending time to do the things I enjoy doing and remembering not to take everything so seriously! Doing yoga, going to the museum, hanging out with my friends or just relaxing watching TV with my boyfriend.

hello beautiful people!

• What are some ways you practice self-care?

some of my favourite ways to practice self-care include alone time, honestly if you can get some time to yourself I highly recommend it! Walking barefoot outdoors helps me reconnect with my roots and feel a sense of being grounded. I enjoy floating in the ocean, swimming, free diving honestly anything in the water which is why I live in Grand Cayman! I talk to myself every morning and night, remind myself of things I've overcome, things my body allows me to do and the things I am blessed to have.

• Who is your number one beauty inspiration?

This is a no brainer!! I've ALWAYS BEEN SO INLOVE with Audrey Hepburn, her poise, philanthropist work, her grace and kindness! Aswell as the one and only Cindy Crawford everything about this human leaves me in awh. from model, to actress, business women she's conquered so much!

• How would you describe yourself in one word?

ambitious. First time I heard the word to describe me was my elementary school graduation! Who knew!

• What is one item you cannot leave the house without?

My water bottle hahaha I sweat non stop living in the caribbean need to keep up with my water intake!

• What is your strangest beauty hack?

raw apple cider vinegar is my go to for everything! I drink it, use it in my hair, my face, my cooking its the jack of all trades!

• What is your morning ritual? What about nighttime ritual?

Morning ritual: I have these scratch cards with daily or weekly tasks either focused on confidence, love, relationships etc ill pick one at random (they are in a bag beside my bed) and focus my attention that day on whatever the practice is! I also love mantras and small meditations to start my day off in a motivating mindset. also COFFEEEEEE seriously I'm obsessed!

Nighttime ritual: I love my sleepy time tea!!!! Its infused with valerian root which is a natural plant that helps reduce stress, anxiety, and overall just really helps me to wind down in the evening before bed.

❤️✨ have a great day friends!!

I practice self care through working out. My number one beauty inspiration or person I go to for beauty advice would be my mom since she is a fashionista and always dresses up. I would describe myself as caring and determined because I wear my heart on my sleeve and never give up. I cannot leave my house without my phone. I hate to say that because I do believe it’s also good to disconnect. However I still feel it’s important to have a phone with me in case of emergencies. My strangest beauty hack is that I sometimes only use my makeup eraser and warm water to clean my face because my skin can be super sensitive to certain cleansers. Many cleansers can be too harsh for skin and actually give me rosacea. I also really love vitalprotein collagen which helps prevents breakouts and rosacea.
My morning ritual is being greeted by my 11 month old pup 🐕 , drinking my coffee with vital protein collagen, clean the house, get myself together, and go to the gym. My night time ritual is to cook dinner for my bf and I, work on my masters program school counseling homework, horse training with my bf, spend time with my bf and dog watching movies, look through the SI swim search page, chat with my SI sisterhood on our group chat, respond to emails/messages for modeling work, and write in my daily prayer journal. 🤍🤍🤍 😍🥰

Hiii @JoannaGiunta !

  1. Some ways I practice self-care is making time for myself. I love to be around people, but I do need some alone time to recharge. I could be reading or going on a bike ride. Anywhere I can really clear my head. I also love love love going to get massages! They're soooooo nice!!

  2. I wouldn't say I have a top #1 beauty inspiration, but I feel like I look towards women such as Jennifer Lopez and Rihanna for an overall beauty inspo in health and wellness, beauty looks, and simply feeling damn good and confident in myself. I also like Gwyneth Paltrow who promotes the many benefits of holistic healing therapies. That stuff is always so interesting, and beautiful to me.

  3. One word to describe myself is ambitious... with a dash of calm.

  4. I don't ever leave the house without putting sunscreen on. I also bring my water bottle, and a ball cap with me most places.

  5. My beauty hack... a dab or two of coconut oil on my face for moisturizer. I also like to use mascara brushes that have just ran out to not only brush my eyebrows, but it sometimes helps them look fuller (if needed).

  6. My morning routine starts with some water, making coffee, making my bed, then getting ready for the day (usually workout attire), journaling, working out, then tea/coffee, read and relax. My night-time routine is washing my face/showering, 11 o'clock news then Stephen Colbert. I'm also working on getting in the habit of asking myself a question I'd like to have figured out the next day by writing it down right before bed. Then while you sleep your subconscious works on figuring it out etc. haha (something I heard from Ben Harding an inspirational blogger). I think if anything it definitely helps! I feel like if I'm trying to find a solution to something throughout the day, I'll have the answer (crossed fingers!) after a good night's rest lol.

My answers are loooong haha, but thanks for the questions!!

Best,
Yas :)

@JoannaGiunta I love these questions!

Self Care: Yoga, going on long runs, eating healthy foods, and having a positive mind set

Beauty inspiration: Paulina Porizkova. I remember there was one night that a documentary of her was on TV, and after I finished watching it her story really inspired me. Besides my passion for fashion and modeling, she is a reason I started to have interest and get involved in the modeling industry. Besides her inspiration, she is beautiful and ageless!

Dedicated. I grew up playing sports and I am former college athlete so staying dedicated and committed to success is extremely important!

I cannot leave the house without a positive mindset.

Strangest Beauty Hack: I recently started switching some of my products to vegan and with a different approach "Beauty Within." One of the products is this vegan formula that contains a botanical blend with Sea Buckthorn Extract and Hyaluronic Acid. It helps keep my hair, skin, and nails looking healthy and the flavor comes from an acai plant which is refreshing!

Morning Ritual: After I drink my coffee, I try to start my day with a workout. It gives me energy and allows me to feel good for the day.

Nighttime Ritual: Skin care routine before bed!

:) Here are my highlights:

I practice self-care with enough sleep (I'm totally a sleeping princess), minimizing stress, and every day exercising. I love cooking delicious food as well.

My number one beauty inspiration is Jeffree Star, incredible personality, and make-up nowadays is a thing. And of course I love Rihanna.

I would describe myself in one word as...ambitious.

I cannot leave the house without headphones and sunscreen.

My strangest beauty hack is to put translucent powder on lipstick to make it waterproof, or burn eyeliner pencil with a lighter to make it extra dark.

The best morning ritual is my Japanese ritual to drink glasses of water on empty stomach, it's a miracle! Nighttime ritual, essential oils.

Thank you!

What are some ways you practice self-care? Yoga, dancing and a great meal! not a good meal but GREAT this is important, just ask Chrissy Teigen she'll tell you.

Who is your number one beauty inspiration? Jurnee Smollett, my mom has told me all my life growing up I look like her and in truth Jurnee was the first young actress I ever saw on t.v. that looked like me. She has this gorgeous natural beauty about her, a classic beauty that shines from the inside that radiates out.

How would you describe yourself in one word? Gemini

What is one item you cannot leave the house without? My Fenty pro kiss'r luscious lip balm.

What is your strangest beauty hack? Soak your feet in beer and warm water for soft and healthy feet... I know it's weird but it works for me.

What is your morning ritual? What about nighttime ritual?
Morning: I start by brushing my teeth next I put on my running shoes get my headphones and hit my treadmill for about an hour. once I'm done with that I do some floor work-outs and yoga, I feed my dogs Bob Barker and Penny Lane and make my way to the shower to wash my body. I love Neutrogena Face wash and moisturizer it's been working great for my since I was a teen. Okay, this is the big one.. once I'm out the shower I debate to myself for about 10 minutes if I'm going to braid my hair or go with a wash and go, lol it's a big decision! next I make breakfast and my day is a go!

Nighttime: I wash my face with my favorite face wash and do a beauty mask every other night. Like most ladies I'm a sucker for rom-coms so the next thing I'll do is look for something funny to watch or read a cheaper in the current book I'm diving in to, this month its More Than Enough by Elaine Welteroth. Last but not least I try my best to make sure I drink a glass of water before nights out.

This was fun, I'm looking forward to the next one!

What are some ways you practice self-care? Telling people “no.” It is the hardest lesson to learn, but you have to know when you can no longer give energy you don’t have.

Who is your number one beauty inspiration? My granny. She is 80 and still gets old men hitting on her!!! She just is who she is. Her beauty radiates from within; that’s the kind of beauty I long to have.

How would you describe yourself in one word? Limitless

What is one item you cannot leave the house without? Sunglasses, if I do it’s a BAD day.

What is your strangest beauty hack? If I’m shooting, I’ll wipe off the outer line of my lip stain, but keep the rest on under the new lip stain. It keeps from rubbing your lips raw.

What is your morning ritual? What about nighttime ritual? Morning ritual: hit snooze too many times and then rush to get ready. Make a proper espresso drink so I’m not wasting money or creating more waste of disposable cups. Night time, I walk into the bathroom to wash my face and my German Shepard jumps on the bed in my spot. I will usually have had or will be having a cup of tea. I’ll lay down with a book and then once I get tired go to sleep.

Hi @JoannaGiunta ! I just joined the club a few days ago... still figuring things out.. and thank you so much for this amazing platform ;-)

I love these fun questions ! 🙌
My self care :
I drink plenty of water, exercise daily, eat right, sleep 8 hours every night and stay true to myself. I also learned the importance to remove stress from my life by focusing on the positive in every situation and work on my breathing.

No 1 beauty inspiration:
Besides my beautiful mother, I would have to say it is Christie Brinkley. She is an ageless beauty and an excellent role model.

How would I describe myself in one word:
Loving ❤️

One item I cannot leave the house without:
My keys ... LOL.. ;-)

My strangest beauty hack :
Rolling my hair into a bun to get the frizz out.

My morning ritual:
I’m a morning person, so as soon as my eyes open I am wide-awake, usually at 5:30-6:00. I immediately give thanks for this life and ask a blessing for everyone on this planet. I kiss my kitten and my great dane rolls over for a belly rub. This literally happens every morning. Then I brush my teeth for 2 minutes and splash water on my face. While the coffee brews I prepare the animal’s breakfast. By then my man is also awake so we make the bed together and enjoy our coffee together with a cut papaya while we gaze out over the ocean and talk about life (which is a big topic these days!!) After 20 minutes I open a young coconut, make poached eggs and toast with coconut oil as our spread. After breakfast I take a shower and start my day.

My nighttime ritual:
In Bali my day normally winds down around 4-4:30 pm when all my pets come from all directions for their afternoon hike. For many years this hike always included my 14 year old monkey, who sadly passed away in his sleep a few months ago. Today, I hike in the hills with 2 dogs and a cat, as well as my boyfriend or anyone else that wants to join me. There is nothing like sitting up high on a hill overlooking the Bali Sea with a pack of fur babies all around, just enjoying nature. Even THEY watch the sunset and appreciate the beauty of nature. After we return home I feed them, water the yard, feed the fish and turtles, and take a shower. By then the sun is setting. I usually do not eat dinner, unless is it grilled fish…and I like to eat a cut apple and drink tea while watching a movie or the news. Bedtime is around 9:30. I brush my teeth, splash water on my face, apply vitamin C oil, kiss my man and our fur babies. Give a prayer of gratitude. Lights out.

Hi! Great questions.

I have struggled with what self care means for me, and sometimes taking a long hot shower is what I do. Working out, eating healthy and full meals, and making at home as fun as possible are also ways I take care of myself.

I hardly ever leave my place without a cup of water, tea, or coffee. I’m constantly drinking those three things.

Recently, I started brushing my eyebrows and I absolutely love the way I can transform my look with just a brush here and there.

Hello Ladies, I just joined the club and am still learning how to navigate through this technology and just came across this fun and intriguing questionnaire and was excited to share my answers with you:

  1. I take care of myself by taking advantage of being an empty nester - working out for 2-3hrs/day - including at least 1 hour of stretching before, after and between sets, hot yoga for about 1,5-2hrs. I LOVE feeling stronger, more flexible and expansive in my own body every day and I can never have enough of it! I also religiously use hard-foam roller as soon as I wake up in the morning and the last thing I do before going to bed. I also make sure to take a nap/read a book for at least 1hr in the sun every day, as that's my proven best and totally free anti-depressant. That's why I get up at 3:45am, to finish early in the morning my workouts and everything else I would be doing during the day/sun time; that way I can catch up with my sleep when it's warm and refresh for the rest of the day. I eat clean and healthy diet, as well.

  2. My #1 beauty (and fitness) inspiration is Jane Fonda - her beauty is electric, beaming from the inside - her wit and humor, her whole being - generating confidence, her physical shape and strength. I still use her leg/butt exercises I found in my mom's magazine, back in late 80's - they still work, especially with resistance bands! She's so full of life and energy - it's amazing!

  3. Describe myself in one word - Disciplined!

  4. I can't leave my home without my water bottle.

  5. My strangest beauty heck - I use coconut oil as my "sunscreen", always envisioning that the healing properties of the sun are helping my skin deeper absorb the healing properties of the coconut oil. I also put coconut oil all the way from my face to my hips - obliques, belly, back, upper arms - every morning before I work out - especially before yoga - to prevent (sometimes) dry skin from micro-tearing while I'm stretching. It also makes stretching more comfortable.

  6. My morning ritual: get up at 3:45 - 4:00am, roll on the foam-roller to reset my body from sleeping in the same position all night, make celery juice and add chia seeds in it - for extra flush ;), get ready for workout while I'm "drinking" my celery juice w/a spoon and listening or watching on my phone some of the transformational programs I've been taking since June - making the best of my quarantine time - that's how I ended up here, too ;-) Between 5am and 9am I'm working out (stretching, cardio, weights, yoga) while catching up w/the world through GMA and local news, then catch up with daily tasks, so I can grab my sun time between 10am and 12pm, before the sun gets too strong. I read/nap/refresh, then going back to my studies, homework and practices.

My evening routine: I like to shower by 6pm, so I can have an early dinner, since I like to go to bed by 8:30pm (currently impossible with all or my commitments to transform my life, while the world is transforming, as well). Before I shower - I always dry-brush my whole body to keep my lymphatic system up-to speed and also - it helps a lot with smoothening the cellulite and skin. No matter how late I go to bed - I make sure I write my gratitude journal and roll again on my hard-foam roller, to reset my body from beating it up during the day. I pray, set up the yoga-music timer and fade out.

PS. I don't have IG or other active social media at this time

  • I might be able to bribe my daughter to help me set it up ;-)

PPS. I'm throwing in a few photos of me to share with you how my heartbreak and suicidal ideation only 10 months ago brought me to my best physical, mental, emotional and a spiritual shape of my life! I've been working out until my physical pain overpowers my emotional pain - as a result I ended up with a healthier body, mind and spirit than ever, at age 50!

Hello! I am excited to be on this journey with everyone!

Here are my answers to these questions.

  1. I practice self care by regularly getting self care treatments. I love to get massages (I get one monthly). I also love to receive facials and I do yoga every single day. On top of all of this I really enjoy journaling when I'm going through a tough time. I also practice gratitude daily.

  2. I would say my number one beauty inspiration is dita von teese or sandra bullock. I've always loved Sandra Bullock since I was little girl and I've always looked up to her, and I think Dita has great beauty tips to offer. I have some of her books and always enjoyed reading them

  3. How would I describe myself in one word? I would say determined

  4. For this one probably the one thing I cannot leave the house without is my phone. I have a son and need to make sure I always have my phone in case of emergency

  5. Strangest beauty hack? I try to keep my skin very healthy through diet and skin care regimens, so that way I do not have to wear a ton of makeup. I also use eyelash serums to keep my eyelashes nice and healthy so I do not have to use fake eyelashes or put anything on my eyelashes that will harm them.

  6. My morning ritual consists of : usually taking care of my son, but when it comes to self care I always rinse in the shower, do yoga, and write three things I am grateful for in my journal.

My nighttime ritual is wash my face and moisturize. And use under eye cream. And usually lounge in bed with my husband and watch a movie while we have some alone time

Hope this helped you guys get to know me a little bit better. And forward to hearing from you!

At night
After I shower I moisturize and journal. It helps me collect sift through my thoughts and emotions and prep for the next day

Hi Joanna!

This is my first post- yay! I’m so excited to be here. Thanks for having me!

What are some ways you practice self-care?
-I’m currently learning about mindfulness. It’s not something people automatically think about when it comes to self-care, but I’m learning that it’s a vital part of being mentally and physically healthy. Not being present mentally can lead to depression, anxiety, and physical health issues! I struggle every day with distractions, and so I’m learning techniques that will help me remain present in the moment.

Who is your number one beauty inspiration?
-Hunter McGrady ❤️

How would you describe yourself in one word?
-Fierce

What is one item you cannot leave the house without?
-My phone! I wish it was a more interesting answer than that- but that’s the truth!

What is your strangest beauty hack?
-Honestly, Kylie lipstick. I’m a nurse practitioner and I sometimes have to work 24 hour shifts in my hospital. My lipstick lasts ALL DAY! Even after I eat and drink.

What is your morning ritual? What about nighttime ritual?
-In the morning, I immediately drink a big glass of water when I get up. I pray, then I check my to-do list before I get out of bed. I do my skincare/brush my teeth, apply my makeup, and do my hair. Then I get dressed and eat breakfast before I wake my kids up!
-At night, after I put my kids to bed, I shower and get into my pajamas. I pray, brush my teeth/do my skincare, and then I either get into bed or I journal or read, depending on how late it is!

This is such a great idea!

I practice self-care by doing yoga and journaling. Both of these things are good for your body, mind, and soul.

My number one beauty inspiration is Gigi Hadid; she is naturally just absolutely stunning and she's so comfortable in herself and her body.

One word I would describe myself is loving.

I can't leave my house without saying 'I love you' to my mum. It's not physical but if I don't say I love you to her then I feel very off the rest of the day.

My strangest beauty hack is to mix my foundation with my moisturizer so that I have a tinted moisturizer, that covers any blemishes I might have, instead of wearing a foundation that is heavy.

My morning ritual is wake up, make a cup of coffee, give my puppy some cuddles, depending on the vibe of the day decide makeup or no makeup, get dressed, start my day.

My nighttime ritual consists of taking a shower, brush my teeth, put moisturizer on, go on my phone for about 10-15 minutes, read my book for about 10-15 minutes, then go to sleep.

Omg! I love this!

Strangest beauty hack: I have tried so many! The one that has actually worked for me the best is egg whites as a mask! It tones & tightens the skin instantly 💕
I just whip up one egg white & apply it to my face & wait 20 min to rinse with warm water!!!

Myspace is the reason I now know basic computer coding! haha #BringBackMyspace

For me self-care starts with my mind. Keeping my mind healthy, keeps my body and everything else healthy. Living in Hawaii I am lucky to have beautiful hikes and beaches at my disposal. There is nothing some beach yoga can't fix!

My momma! She was my inspo since I was a little girl. She always taught me ways to enhance my natural beauty. I am so thankful to have her!

I am fun!! I am known for bringing good vibes and smiles to everyone I meet. No matter who I am with or what I am doing you can guarantee some fun will be had!

My penny skateboard!! I like to skateboard to places rather than drive! It's fun and a killer lower body workout!

No judgement right? I totally have a microdermabrasion machine with a camera on it that connects to my phone. As I use it I can see all the pimps getting sucked out of my face. You can blame Dr. Pimple Popper! Never thought so much satisfaction would come out of one zit! haha

The routines YouTube wants me to have or my actual routine??? Haha well after I drink loads of water, I make some black coffee, have a dance party whilst I brush my teeth. I then splash some water on my face and then (if I remember) apply SPF for the day. If I am lucky I'll use this ice roller thing I got for my face.
You can stop cringing now! My nighttime routine is more Youtube acceptable. I typically shower and then proceed with my 16 step facial routine.

Thank you SI!! www.instagram.com/alohaangelica

Hi Jo!! I love this, it helps bring us all together so gracefully!!

Walking/running every morning or in-between work breaks to get my daily dose of Vitamin D and to get my body moving are a few ways I practice self-care.

Alicia Keys is my number one beauty inspiration. I admire the way she executes natural beauty and owns her features. She has set a confident and humbling example for young girls and women around the world to own their natural beauty and take pride in it.

If I had to pick one word to describe myself it would be "persevere."

My water bottle is definitely the one item I cannot leave the house without. It’s so silly but truly I strive to stay hydrated and don’t like searching or buying water when I can bring it with me anywhere.

My strangest beauty hack is the way I slightly bend over, flip my head up and down, and hair back and forth, probably 10 times after brushing my wet hair out of the shower. People think I’m crazy or giving myself a concussion but nope just gaining some volume and freshening up my hair!

My morning rituals are my walks- I pray, call someone, listen to music, give thanks, count my blessings, and get ready for the day. At nighttime, washing my face is definitely a priority, and I do my best to not go on my phone before I lay down, I tend to fall asleep faster when I stay away from my phone before closing my eyes.

Hi Joanna! First, thank you al so much for devoting so much time and attention to the bazillion women who come here for support and acceptance! ❤️ Second, I decided to answer al in one giant swoop lol!

What are some ways you practice self-care?
A relaxing soak in the bath with music, a glass of wine, and my little Doxie sitting on the edge of the tub 💜

Who is your number one beauty inspiration?
My mom! The self love she had for herself made her so beautiful! Also, me because I mix some of my own skincare like diy vitamin c serum that make a fresh batch of about every two weeks because I’m super nerdy and love the chemistry behind it :)

How would you describe yourself in one word?
Nerdy

What is one item you cannot leave the house without?
Lip balm with SPF!

What is your strangest beauty hack?
When facial skin is irritated, I break open a fish oil cap and spread the entire contents on my face, let it soak in a little, then off to bed (one without flavoring I.e. no burp less ones because the essential oils will burn already irritated skin).

What is your morning ritual? What about nighttime ritual? Morning- toner, vitamin C serum, HA serum, moisture, sunblock
Night- Alternating moon juice Acid Potion with retin-a micro, HA serum, moisturizer, lip balm, and a Doxie to curl up with :)

Happy Chanukkah, Christmas, Kwanzaa to all who celebrate Life in their own way! Help someone who is need today! I.E.#EVERYONE!!!
My first and foremost self care is mental health. Reading scripture and clearing out the negative cobwebs thruough meditation at least 20mins per day in the early am.

My #1 beauty inspiration is H20. One would be surprised at how much we do not rehydrate daily. And so many of us suffer from instabilities because of it. And it makes Your skin glow!

My one word evaluation of my self is SPIRITUAL! Love as much as possible!

The #1 item I can not leave home without are my house keys lol! No... really? A bottle of water!😷

My strangest beauty hack is? Hmmm...? I do not have one lol!

My morning ritual is prayer, meditation, then food. I loooovvveeee food 🤭🤗One bottle of water, bananas with plain yogurt & cinnamon, toast w/philly cream cheese and a cup of coffee w/honey & milk. workout then my daily routine.

Hello SI Team
I am so glad the question of self C
care came up. This week I am going to get my yearly Mammogram. Prevention is definitely self care.

My Mother has always been my inspiration. She was the first American Indian Actress. She came her from Nebraska and starred in her own TV series That’s amazing.

I think I am Adventurous

You will not see my with out a minimum of lipgloss, even under a mask.

Fruits have natural enzymes. Don’t be surprised if you see me with a face of strawberries.

My mornings are coffee and workouts
Epsom salt baths, it’s a great way to start my day
Evenings I may use red light therapy, I love argan oil I use it full body and cozy up to bed

Hi!!
I believe in running! Everytime you go faster you know your body is getting stronger! Evidentely you have to be consistent with it :))

Personal story: I recently unintentionally ran the half Marathon because I just so felt right that day. It is worth it in the end even though you don't exactly know when you'll be seeing results.

Number One timeless beauty will always be Irina <3. For me personally. Generally there are too many beauties out there to pick from.

Self-care
I love fitness and releasing anxiety, stress or overbearing pressures by moving my body and occupying my mind. I grew up a dancer and gymnast, so physical activity is a crucial component of who I am! I’m a huge bubble bath enthusiast! There is hardly a day that passes that I don’t soak for a few minutes and decompress from the day!

Beauty Inspo
Audrey Hepburn, hands down! She’s such a classic and iconic beauty. The best compliment has been “Alyssa, you resemble Audrey Hepburn”! It always makes me smile.

One word
Determined.
I don’t give up easily. Perseverance and commitment to goals and people are essential to who I am.

Can’t live without
My Fuzzy socks. I am OBSESSED with socks and wearing them all the time.

Strange beauty hack
Vaseline. It has been a life saver! I have naturally dry skin, so it works wonders to add in some moisture, but my favorite thing to use it for it to hydrate my eyelashes. Every so often Ill wipe it on my lashes before bed. I wake up with soft, hydrated and shiny lashes!

Rituals
Morning time is a little quicker than night. I wash and dry my face first. Then I apply a sunscreen and moisturizer for the day.
At night I wash my face from a day of excitement and apply a toner. I have a Vitamin C serum I’ll use every other night and a medicated cream to aid in breakouts. After all of that soaks in, I’ll apply a night cream for extra moisture before bed.

Self-care

I love to be active, running (I ran half marathon 2 years ago), going to the gym, dancing (I am a member in 3V dance studio), swimming and I love spending time in the nature.

Beauty inspo

I love simple, natural people.

In one word I would describe myself as honest.

I cannot leave the house without lip oil or labello.

I am a simple person I don't have any strange beauty hacks.

Morning-night ritual

I am not a morning person. I take a bath, wash my teeth and put on serum and cream on my face and go to work.
My night ritual sometimes is to put on mask on my face for hydration.

  1. I use cosmetics-care, spiritual or personal development books for better confidence and comparison of ideas.
  2. Xenia Deli, Candice Swanepoel
  3. Interesing
  4. Most people dont leave house without phone, but it is not my case. I think i dont have a special item.
  5. Strangest? Just a lot of sleep. Yes, I know, it is not strange, but this is very powerful
  6. Listen music, before i i get up, because music gives me a lot of energy. About nightime I dont have any ritual.

Hello my name is Nadine!
How I practice self care, is working out I can tell that when I’m stressed or overwhelmed the best thing that helps me release stress is by working out, whether that’s running, or doing a hitt workout or just some yoga, it really makes me feel better!

My number 1 beauty inspiration would be Audrey Hepburn, I think she is so elegant and classy and really was not only so beautiful on the outside but just such a beautiful person inside out and always had such class.

One Item that I can’t leave the house without... would have to be my hydro flask. I have a big 30oz one that I fill up with lots of ice and lemons and take it everywhere with me, because I always need to be hydrated.

Strangest beauty hack.. I sleep with oil in my hair overnight at least once a week, whether it be olive oil, or coconut oil.

Morning ritual: every morning right when I wake up I like to just lay in bed and mediate or set intentions for the day, then I get up get ready and take my dog for a run or walk for at least an hour
Night time ritual: I always light all my candles in my room and set the mood, I like to reflect on the day and I always do my skin care routine, and journal.
Hope that helped to get to know me a little better loved these questions!
