"My mantra is to restore or maintain our body, minds and faces the way nature intended. I believe that beauty is achieved by how you live your life, and the choices you make and that beauty comes from being kind to yourself and to your skin. I believe that beauty products and treatments should contribute to your health not compromise it. I believe that beautiful skin isn’t a gift or something you can buy; it’s a habit cultivated holistically. For this reason I work with experts who are aligned with my philosophy of health, beauty, well being and happiness. I believe in community and I am very proud and happy to support projects and people who have a positive impact on our lives, our planet, and the universe."
