"I THINK PEOPLE WHO ARE AT HOME IN THEIR SKIN ARE THE MOST BEAUTIFUL. PEOPLE WHO UNDERSTAND THEMSELVES AND WHO THEY ARE."
RITUAL • What are your daily inner + outer rituals to cultivate beauty and radiance?
I use sandalwood elixir and Vitamin C oil for my skin morning and night. My hair, I only wash every few days so that's a bit more low maintenance, but for that, I use argon oil products. But those are just routines to sort of maintain and take care of things. The thing that makes me feel the best is making music. I think the less I think about myself and the more focused I am on creating, the better I feel.
NOURISH • What are your staples for beauty + wellness + radiance?
I don't eat meat so I have to have protein shakes with avocado, so I can feed my body, my skin, and my hair. And then I drink a ton of coffee which means I have to drink a ton of water to counteract.
BODY • How do you keep your body healthy, strong, and powerful?
I love Pilates. I do it about 3-4 times a week. No exercise has made me feel as good or as in shape as that has. But for fun, I love to go out dancing. I just read a book about Kundalini and it said free form dance is highly important. So spazzing out in public is good for your soul.
MIND • How do you stay grounded, confident, and centered in this modern day craziness we call life?
I try and be spiritually aware in all aspects of my life. I think if you set pure intentions with what you are doing, you can't make any mistakes.
SPIRIT • BENSHEN means 'root of the spirit' - how do you root your spirit into your life, which in turn, keeps your body beautiful, healthy, and radiant?
For me, personally I just try to pursue things that I find the most fulfilling. At times you can get lost in pressure and expectations put on you. As long as I am doing something that can creatively motivate someone or make someone else feel good, all the noise seems to be less important.
