RITUAL • What are your daily inner + outer rituals to cultivate beauty and radiance?

Every morning I wake up and splash my face with warm water and moisturize with a mix of organic oils and brush my teeth with my homemade toothpaste and at night I do the same but instead of just water I wash my face using an organic, vegan, and package free bar soap. 

 

NOURISH • What are your staples for beauty + wellness + radiance?

I love having a shot of apple cider vinegar in the morning and then chase that with hot water and lemon or a tea of fresh organic ginger, turmeric, and bulk raw honey. 

 

BODY • How do you keep your body healthy, strong, and powerful?

I find that living in NYC and walking everywhere is the best way for me to relax. I love walking across the Williamsburg bridge during sunset, it's my meditation. 

 

MIND • How do you stay grounded, confident, and centered in this modern day craziness we call life?

I use walking and running to clear my head and wind down. I also like taking a moment every night to think about what is good in my life and what I aspire to have in the future. It helps me stay positive and excited. 

 

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?

By living a Zero Waste lifestyle I am living in alignment with my values. When I started doing that, I was happier than I had ever felt. I also believe in following my gut and only doing the things that make me feel happy and that align with what I want in life. Since I began living this way, so many great opportunities have come my way!
