BEAUTY INTERVIEW - AURELIA DEL SOL
WHO ARE YOU?
This is the hardest question to answer! I’m Aurélia DelSol, I’m 32 years old. I’m a traveler at heart, yoga and Ayurveda teacher and student and passionate about music !
WHAT'S THE FIRST THING YOU DO WHEN YOU WAKE UP?
I always stretch like a cat and jump out of bed.
DO YOU HAVE A MORNING BEAUTY HABIT?
Every morning, I put cold water on my face (a splash) and drink a glass of warm water with a touch of lemon or organic cider vinegar.
WHAT’S YOUR EVENING BEAUTY ROUTINE?
Every night without fail I use makeup remover (whether I’ve worn makeup or not) then a big herbal tea, chai latte or golden latte (it settles the stomach… a beauty gesture for that #glowfromtheinside).
AND YOUR SECRET FOR BEAUTIFUL SKIN?
With a little oil, I massage my skin, kneading, pressing, and tapping. It gives me a healthy glow, gets the blood flowing, tightens the skin and stimulates it.
WHAT SHOULD WE EAT TO BE IN SHAPE AND TAKE CARE OF OURSELVES?
Look for foods that are organic, simple foods, not processed, fruit and vegetables in season and lots of spices to give you a boost or calm you down (turmeric, cumin, black pepper…). With vegetables, go for ones with plenty of fibre and don’t forget to keep your energy up with protein, whether its animal- or plant-based.
ARE YOU A MINIMALIST OR A COLLECTOR OF BEAUTY PRODUCTS?
With reactive skin like mine, I’m more of a minimalist. I try not to mix everything up and simply change with the seasons.
YOUR FEEL-GOOD MOTTO?
“Life is great when you happily accept reality”.
YOUR BEAUTY ICON?
BEST BEAUTY ADVICE ANYONE EVER GAVE YOU?
Less is more and drink lots of water!
YOUR ANTI-FATIGUE TIP?
The legs glued to the wall for 5 minutes it gives a real energy boost.
Note that 5 minutes with your legs in the air is equal to a good 20 minutes nap!
A BEAUTY GESTURE YOU’VE ALWAYS USED?
A splash of cold water on my face and an icy blast at the end of my shower. Great for giving body and mind a kick start!
A PLACE TO TAKE CARE OF YOURSELF?
My bathroom or the sea. The effect of salt water on my skin is pure magic…
A DESTINATION TO TAKE CARE OF YOURSELF?
Morocco or Bali!
IF YOU COULD ONLY KEEP ONE BEAUTY GESTURE?
The best beauty gesture is to look at yourself in the mirror and say “I love you” just the way I am, natural, real. It’s an actual exercise and not so easy but it changes everything. Repeat it to yourself every day so it truly sinks in. The rest will follow!
