After a decade of champagne, parties, and general unhealthy living, ex-Parisian showgirl and model Sabrina Jacquier Parr was physically , mentally and spiritually exhausted. Embracing yoga and the holistic healthy lifestyle it promoted changed Sabrina’s idea of what she thought it was to be a ‘healthy beautiful’ person, which led to her founding Flora Organica:
Flora Organica has been a labor of love, sharing my knowledge on natural & organic beauty whilst supporting an emerging green beauty industry. I have searched the world for exciting cult & niche products not readily available in Australia from companies truly dedicated to our inner and outer beauty.
Check out her wonderful website here (I’m loving the Konjac sponge and Sans Ceauticals Baobab Regenerating Body Cream at the moment!) and keep reading to find out about Sabrina’s clean regime…
CHAMELEON: Jennifer Lawrence
From Katniss to couture, Jennifer Lawrence is a woman of many faces… do you prefer her pared back beauty or vamped up glam?
As the weather cools down, so does skin’s moisture levels, and my lips are always the first to feel it. After a week of suffering red, chapped lips, I finally rummaged through my bathroom drawer to find a lip balm by 1Skin Solution and a Shizen Lip Hydrating Serum. I used the lip balm by day, which delivered instant hydration and left lips glossy & plump (with a delicious vanilla scent!), and at night I covered lips with a drop of the serum (a little goes a long way!) - which deeply nourished my lips and left them soft, smooth & soothed. Made with a lovely blend of sweet orange, lime & lemon myrtle essential oils, I’ve even popped a few drops of the serum into a bowl of hot water to steam my face! Needless to say, this duo will be my lip saviours this winter: with the lip balm in my handbag and the serum on by bedside table, I will be one happy unchappy chap.
TRY THE TREND: Burgundy Babe
Burgundy is back baby. Bags, jackets, jumpers, jeans - and lips. It’s the grown up red. Try the trend with a swipe of Ilia Lipstick in Arabian Nights.
