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?

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.

New 1-year study proves cu­mu­la­tive ef­fi­cacy on the skin’s ma­jor signs of youth. The secret? Mil­lions of pro­bi­otic frac­tions in every drop, fully com­pat­i­ble with your skin. Af­ter a year: Ra­di­ance +39%, Soft­ness +45%, Fine Lines -45%

Be the best ver­sion of you, every sin­gle day.
