Bare people is a series of short interviews with folks who inspire me and who I believe live life whole heartedly and fully. I ask them questions on their daily routines and habits so we can learn and get inspired!
I came across Anna's Instagram a while ago and we instantly connected over a Living Libations oil we both love. I knew immediately we would have A LOT to talk about, so I very humbly approached her with a request to try out Bare Origin's products and give her honest review. The fact that Anna is completely love with Bare Origin and even listed our oils as "The best natural beauty products of 2016" meant the World to me.
Her site The Absolute Beauty is my go to destination for all things natural, DIY skincare and food recipes and wellness.
Here is a few things I asked Anna about.
"Absolute beauty to me means living beauty from within and feeling connected to it in every level. Being whole, being honest, living an honest and ethical lifestyle, staying true to yourself ... all of these things are connected and when you stay connected to these natural sources and rhythms you feel beautiful from inside and out"
What does absolute beauty means to you?
Absolute beauty to me means living beauty from within and feeling connected to it in every level. Being whole, being honest, living an honest and ethical lifestyle, staying true to yourself, being kind to yourself and others, having beautiful thoughts, eating natural foods, using natural beauty products, doing things that make you feel beautiful, all of these things are connected and when you stay connected to these natural sources and rhythms you feel beautiful from inside and out.
What are your daily practices for a radiant body and soul?
I try to incorporate a yoga and meditation practice into my everyday life as much as possible. Meditation is very important to me and helps me to relax, stay calm and centred as much as I can. I practice Kundalini yoga and feel that it is one of the best ways to keep a radiant body and soul, it is absolutely sensational.
"My skincare routine consists of 90% oils and serums. My morning routine consists of cleaning my face with organic rose water and applying a little under eye oil...In the evening I love to cleanse my skin with a balm or a natural cleanser..."
My skincare routine consists of 90% oils and serums. My morning routine consists of cleaning my face with organic rose water and applying a little under eye oil, as this is where my skin shows the signs of ageing the most. In the evening I love to cleanse my skin with a balm or a natural cleanser and if I have time I love to indulge in a therapeutic bath with essential oils and salts while applying a nourishing mask on my face. I follow this with a beautiful face oil or a serum.
I know you love traveling, how do you keep healthy while on the road?
I try to stick to my plant based diet and lifestyle as much as i can while travelling, eating lots of local fresh fruits and vegetable and drinking lots of fresh juices and of course water. Before travelling I always try to google a local vegetarian or vegan places to eat and try them out as soon as I arrive to a new place.
Can you share a favorite simple skin care recipe we can easily make at home?
You can make an easy, but beautiful hair oil treatment by mixing coconut or argan oils with some essential oils such as lavender, rosemary or cedarwood, and leaving it on the hair for an hour or so or even use it as a night hair treatment.
Use lavender oil for treating dry hair and promoting hair growth, rosemary oil is great for treating dandruff, itchy scalp and oily hair, cedarwood oil is great for dry or an oily scalp and it also stimulates hair growth.
