What is your self-care approach?
I take care of myself physically and mentally. I eat well, try to sleep correctly (as much as possible with a baby), and “think” positively. For me, beauty is this sparkle in the eyes and radiant skin. You can’t be deeply beautiful if you are sad and tired.
You recently became the mother of the most beautiful baby ever, has your beauty regimen changed much since then? Do you have another approach to beauty?
My beauty regimen changed during my pregnancy. I used to drink wheatgrass juice every morning + green juice and life food (alfalfa, greens, seeds...) at every meal and no dairy. Now I feel much more relaxed. I eat clean, of course, but I drink red wine, eat a lot of French bread, drink coffee and have a piece of goat cheese once a week.
