It’s so important to be yourself.
DO YOU ENJOY LIFE NOW MORE THAN YOU DID 10 YEARS AGO?
Absolutely. I just know myself better and I know what I don’t know. It’s such a pleasure to not know things and to learn or relearn. I feel like I’ve really bloomed and grown in this era of my life. Ten years ago, I would think, “How come, I don’t know?” Now, that pressure is gone.
WHAT PRINCIPLES DO YOU STAND BY, NO MATTER WHAT?
It’s so important to be yourself. I always check in with myself. How does this feel to you? Is this what you really want? Is this who you really want? Is this speaking to your inner truth? I’m a person who loves everybody and I want my heart to always remain open, so it’s important to me that things should feel good. It’s part of being self-aware.
WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU GIVE TO YOUR YOUNGER SELF?
To be less afraid of people not loving me. Because when you’re young and you want to please people, you can fall into a trap of trying to please everyone. So, I would tell my younger self that I don’t need to change to please other people. It’s so important to be yourself to have genuine relationships with people.
WHAT DO YOU LOVE MOST ABOUT YOUR SKIN?
That no matter how badly I treat it, it always bounces back. I have wrinkles, and I have some grey hair, but you know what? I embrace it and I see it as a little reminder that I do have some wisdom.
HOW DOES ADVANCED GÉNIFIQUE FIT INTO YOUR SKINCARE ROUTINE?
I’ve always used it as a booster. I don’t want more than two or three steps to my skincare so I mix it with my cream on my hand and I ﬁnd that it just boosts the absorption. When I mix them together, it all feels really good on my skin and with a little bit of makeup I’m out the door. It’s not heavy on the skin, it just absorbs very quickly, and I love that.
APART FROM SKINCARE, WHAT’S YOUR SECRET TO STAYING YOUNG?
You’ve got to embrace adventure. There’s nothing quite like stepping out of your comfort zone, being in a place or with people who are very different to you. One of the things I’ve always been able to do is to see the beauty in everything, because if you look hard enough, everything is beautiful. Even in life’s ugliest moment, there’s beauty.
