You are an epitome of self-love. What would be your message for girls struggling with body-shaming?
To anyone struggling with body shame, I am sending out a big virtual hug to all of you. Know you are not alone. Know you have been programmed to hate your body, and know you can reprogram that. Self love is a journey, it doesn’t happen overnight and it is a constant practice. You can start to reprogram your mind by curating the people you follow on social media. If you feel bad about yourself after seeing anyone else’s highly curated social media feed, unfollow them! Replace them with people who make you feel beautiful and valued. Keep a journal so you can work out any trauma you have about your body. Try meditation and breath work to become more conscious of your thought patterns and deeply held beliefs. Listen to inspirational people. And if you have down days about yourself, be compassionate. Don’t beat yourself up! We all have down days, its normal.
Your hair and skincare routine? Five daily rituals?
My favorite skincare products I have been using are from Korres so I wash my face with their face wash and then put their vitamin C serum on. I make sure to use sunscreen every day on my face. I exfoliate three times a week with either a light peel or scrub. I use a face mask two times a week. And I have been loving using Oui shampoo and conditioner for my hair, specifically formulate for thick hair. I make sure to use leave in conditioner as well before I blow dry!
What do you wish to say about the website Womenfitness.net and message for its visitors?
I want to say that in these strange times of self isolation, it is super important to keep a check on your mental health. It is so easy to fall into the trap of not moving your body and just binge watching shows all day- which is totally fine! But I want to stress the importance of getting any of your favorite kind of movement in, whether that is dancing, jogging, stretching. Our bodies play a key role in mental health and we need to give them that juicy movement they need. Also, keep your heads up everyone! We are living in crazy times, but we are all in this together. More than ever lean on your chosen families around you, use your community to work through whatever feelings you are going through.
