Our #ChroniclesOfQuarantine series checking-in to see how a few of our industry friends were holding up. We wanted to pick this series up today with the host of one of our favorite beauty podcast, @BrookeDevard of @NakedBeautyPlant.
Brooke's answers now seem to hold new weight especially in the areas of self-care and self-love. We hope you find her interview (and podcast) as inspiring as we do!
NAME: Brooke DeVard Ozaydinli (@brookedevard)
MJ: Overall, how are you coping with quarantine?
BDO: I'm trying to use this time to change my usual pace and slow down. I'm building in more moments of self-care and relaxation and loving all of this time I have to rest on the weekends!
MJ: Be honest, do you have a go-to quarantine uniform that you wear way too often?
BDO: Definitely sweatpants! I have these new tie-dye sweats that I just LOVE - they're men's too so they're extra roomy.
MJ: What are the skincare products getting you through?
BDO: Right now I'm loving my skincare from @klur.co. The founder Lesley makes beautiful, natural products that are so sustainable. The gentle cleanser and elements of comfort body oil are two of my holy grails.
MJ: What's one thing you're happy you're doing more of now that you have the time?
BDO: More time to take care of my natural hair. I can really indulge in my full wash day experience -- from pre-poo to deep conditioning.
MJ: What one lesson will you take away from this quarantine experience?
BDO: Feeling beautiful has very little to do with getting dressed up and having other people see you, it's much more of an internal feeling of self-assuredness and peace.
