Shannon, CEO of New World Natural Brands

Q: What is your current self-care routine like?

A: I have been studying and chasing the fountain of youth since I was a youth, for over 30 years, I have been researching ways to protect and preserve skin health. Beauty and wellness really does begin within, what a person consumes on this inside has an impact on how the skin looks and feels on the outside. Consuming high quality ingestibles such our baebody collagen gummies and our baebody collagen tea are two of my favorite wellness within products!   

Q: What is your ultimate self-care secret? 

A: Laughter, followed by hydration and high-quality skin and body products. Over the last year, I have been indoors more than any year prior, I needed to modify my skincare regimen to balance out indoor vs fresh outdoor air. The baebody collagen moisturizer has been a wonderful addition to my skincare routine this winter. The moisturizer is light in feel and deep in moisture, this is a product that can help protect the skin moisture barrier even on a cold Chicago winter night! 

 

Kim Ryan, VP of baebody

Q: What is your current self-care routine like?

A: My AM self-care routine is: wake up, take my dog for a walk outside, make a coffee, turn on my morning news podcast and apply my baebody eye gel, hyaluronic acid serum and collagen moisturizer, followed by a hit of mascara so I’m ready for all the Zoom meetings. I then take 2 collagen gummies with breakfast and sit down to start my day!

Q: What is your ultimate self-care secret? 

A: Stress is one of the number one causes of wrinkles and early aging and is also very detrimental to your health… this past year I’ve really been focused on how to lower my stress levels. For me, what has helped the most is taking a quick self-care break when I’m feeling stressed. I either do a 5 min meditation break – I simply google “5 min meditations” and pick one that looks nice. Or I take a 5 min sun break. I set my phone alarm to 5 min and go face toward the sun – with sunscreen on of course! – and soak in all the benefits of that Vitamin D. Both of these tactics have helped me in resetting a sense of calm in a stressful day.

My ultimate Baebody secret is that I love to put my baebody eye gel in the fridge overnight so that it’s even more cooling when I apply it to my eyes in the morning which helps with depuff-ing.

 

Janet Chan, VP of Product Development & Innovation

Q: What is your current self-care routine like?

A: My fave Baebody products are eye gel, retinol moisturizer, and collagen moisturizer. My routine changes all the time because I have to try out many products and new formulas as part of my job. But my mainstay is always Eye Gel to get rid of puffy eyes and dark circles. I use retinol moisturizer at night (every other day) and collagen moisturizer during the day for smooth skin day and night. 

Q: What is your ultimate self-care secret? 

A: I have been wearing sunscreen everyday (at least SPF 30) since I was 15 and rarely go without! I also try to get my hydration in early because I am bad about drinking water throughout the day. My morning routine always starts with a big mug of hot water with 1/4 lemon, followed by a matcha latte made with coconut milk, then a green smoothie (spinach, kale, mango, avocado, hemp seeds.) It's my antioxidant infusion first thing in the morning!

 

 Melissa Buckley, Assistant Brand Manager

Q: What is your current self-care routine like?

A:My self-care routine is ever changing! I am always wanting to try the latest and greatest when it comes to skincare and can be very picky when it comes to ingredient lists. A few things that always remain the same for me though are that I wash my face daily with an oil based cleanser (dry skin queen!) & exfoliate at least two days a week. Then after I wash my face I use our baebody collagen moisturizer mixed with the hyaluronic acid serum! I just take two pumps of the cream in my hand and add in a drop or two of the ha serum. It is life changing & keeps me moisturized all day! (Also works perfectly under my makeup!) Finish it off with the eye gel which I keep in my refrigerator for that extra cooling/tightening effect. I’m also a huge fan of our wellness products which to me is the core of self-care! I take our collagen gummy vitamins every day with my other vitamins & medication. They taste like candy and I’ve seen amazing results as far as my skin complexion and hair growth! (Which is bittersweet because my roots are showing now…pandemic problems.)

Q: What is your ultimate self-care secret? 

A:  My ultimate self-care secret is probably not a secret at all. If you want amazing skin, you need to listen to your body! Drinking the proper daily amount of water, getting enough sleep and washing your pillow cases regularly is a great start. Also paying attention to what you eat and how that is affecting your body not just from a gaining/losing perspective but how it feels. Listening to your body and taking the proper steps to figure out what works for you individually is the greatest form of self-care. 

 

Aly Deutsch, Assistant Brand Manager

Q: What is your current self-care routine like?

A: Despite all the changes this last year brought, the one thing that stayed consistent in my life was my self-care routine. No matter what was going on in the world, I always knew that I had my self-care routine to look forward to every day. After I’ve cleansed, I start with my baebody hyaluronic acid, which is a drink of water for my skin! In the mornings I follow up with the baebody vitamin c serum for an extra dose of glow and apply my baebody eye gel (I switch to the eye cream in the winter months for an extra boost of hydration). Once I’ve let that soak into my skin, I will go for the baebody collagen moisturizer or retinol moisturizer, it all depends on how my skin is feeling. I then seal in all my skincare with a thin layer of nügg beauty’s aqua boost face mask to lock in moisture all day or all night.

Q: What is your ultimate self-care secret?

A: Maximize your beauty sleep! We all know that we need at least 8 hours of sleep each night, but did you know that your skin cells rejuvenate at night? Since our skin is already rejuvenating as we catch some z’s I like to make the most of this time by using a silk pillowcase to prevent fine lines, wrinkles and hair damage (in addition to using anti-aging products). Another sleep secret I discovered is simply sleeping on your back! When we sleep on our sides or on our stomach we can speed up the aging process due to the wrinkle inducing friction and skin folding, and no one has time for that!
