“I'm proud to say that it has improved over the past few months—it's like I went to YouTube University for skincare during the MCO (laughs)
. I've always had really sensitive skin, and right now wearing masks has
been aggravating it so I've been looking into mild, soothing skincare products that work for me. What I've learned is that I have to use an oil, a no-foam base cleanser—and always double cleanse
that, toner, hyaluronic acid and rosehip oil; not forgetting sunscreen
every day because I burn easily."
Do you often experiment with makeup?
“I don't wear makeup to work, apart from maybe a little concealer, or brow product on occasion; though most days I just roll out of bed and go. There isn't really much point in it, you know? I mean, if I'm training for yoga
or dance, lipstick really
gets all over the place—my shirt, my leg, my arms. But I do love putting on makeup for events; it's fun to experiment with."
What would you say is the most gratifying part of your job?
“In terms of nutrition, it's exciting because everyone's diet is different and it tells a story of who
they are, what
they do. Everyone's diet is unique, and it's very satisfying to have my clients complete
their programmes. Plus, I'm a little geeky about science—I love reading about it and constantly learning on the job
. Sometimes things can get a little stressful with clients throughout the programme, but the
end is so worth it.
“On the yoga side, I like people! Teaching gives me energy, even if I've had a really tiring day. I feel so good when I teach
—it's like my coffee, only better. There's also people you see grow after a while,
and they'll start doing things that you (or they themselves) didn't even know they were capable of."
