Q: How did you get started in holistic skincare?
Holistic skincare was always the natural way for me. I was raised in a very holistic way— connected to nature, the earth, growing our own food. So when it came to specializing in a niche with skincare I took those values I had been raised with and incorporated them into this career.
Q: What is your purpose in creating Honest Rituals?
Honest Rituals is a space for the natural women seeking holistic beauty rituals. It’s a space for men and women to come and relax and to leave feeling a sense of rejuvenation and nourishment, a coming back to themselves.
Q: Tell us a bit about your offerings. Is anything new on the horizon?
We offer a beautiful facial menu that uses plants, massage, and potions to heal the skin as well as the emotional body. One thing I’m very excited about is our new spa location we are opening on the luscious island of Kauai.
Q: What is your go-to daily ritual that you would never skip? Walk us through how we can try it ourselves.
Drinking warm lemon water in the morning. It prepares your body for digestion and cleanses the intestines. drinking warm water in the morning begins to change the waters in your body allowing you to feel energized and alert throughout the day.
Q: What is your favorite “beauty food” and how do you like to prepare it?
Coconut water. Living on the beautiful island of Kauai where coconuts are abundant, a glass of coco water a day keeps the skin glowing and body so hydrated. It also acts as a natural sun protectant.
Q: What is one skincare product that you can absolutely not live without?
Right now it is the collagen cream by SURYA. We carry this beautiful Ayurvedic crafted skin care cream in our studio and my skin has never felt to incredibly hydrated and plump. But when I’m not obsessing about a new skin potion, chapstick is always my skincare product go to. I can’t leave the house without it.
Q: If you could go back and speak to your younger self, what insight would you give her?
All your wildest dreams you imagined your life to be are unfolding and becoming true.
Q: Where can we find you? Where do you “hang out”? Share your website & social media.
These days you can find me on a beach in Kauai or in my skin studio either in Topanga Canyon— where I travel back and forth to see clients or my skin studio in Kauai. I’ll be oscillating between the two. Follow me on Instagram and visit my website.
