Jolien haastattelussa iki-ihana May Lindstrom
13.04.2015, Hannamari Rahkonen
Sensuelli ja omaperäinen May Lindstrom Skin -luonnonkosmetiikkasarja saapui Jolieen tammikuun lopulla. Sarja on ihastuttanut meitä ja teitä niin paljon, että halusimme kysyä sarjan äidiltä Maylta muutamia kysymyksiä ja jakaa ne teidän kanssanne täällä Jolien Toimituksessa. Ihanaa viikonalkua näiden viisaiden ajatusten siivittämänä!
What is the secret of Your beauty and glow?
Eat the rainbow. Move your body. Breathe. Romance yourself to the point of blushing. Know that you are beautiful. Beauty is a reflection of your inner self – prioritize your own deliciousness, and be truly, fully, authentically You. Be sure that you create time to rest your body and your mind, to play and encourage opportunity for learning and joy, to share yourself fully with others and also to embrace moments of time alone. When we are happy and intimately immersed in our world, our beauty cannot help but shine through.
How did you become a beauty entrepreneur?
I wanted to create something special – gorgeous potions that feel incredible to use and provide an excuse to celebrate yourself every morning and night. I have truly poured my heart and soul into delivering a beautiful experience with this collection. I really push myself to formulate treats that deliver serious results. The bottles are lovely, but what’s inside is remarkably powerful. I believe our skin has the ability to heal itself if we let it. It is our responsibility to provide abundant nutrition and hydration and to be gentle in our care. By limiting our exposure to harsh chemicals and extreme treatments, we open up to gentler methods. I build each of my
products on the same philosophy and ingredients that have been treasured and shared by women all over the world since the beginning of time. I trust in earth’s bounty and the wisdom of those who came before me.
My own skin has been a work in progress my entire life. As someone with severe chemical sensitivities, the world of beauty products can be a terrifying place. I formulate for myself first, always. I have to be madly in love before I release something to the public. I have a deep commitment to my clients to be thoughtful, authentic, and to consistently exceed expectations and delight your every sense. This relationship is why our success matters to me, it is what drives me to be on this grand adventure, and to focus so completely on intimacy and connection.
Do you have a favorite product in your own MLS and why?
The Blue Cocoon.This is essentially the most beautiful facial oil you’ve ever experienced in a unique waterless and waxless balm form. In the jar, it is a solid. Once it touches skin, it turns immediately to a lovely fluid. This is used both as a daily hydrator or as a special treatment for skin that is sensitive, inflamed, damaged, acneic or irritated.
It can be used as a spot treatment or for the full face, neck and decollete. It is a powerful anti-inflammatory and soothes skin in the most beautiful way, providing the perfect level of hydration and healing, eliminating redness and irritation. It works wonderfully for all skin types, and is especially effective for those prone to eczema, psoriasis, dermatitis and rosacea.The Blue Cocoon contains the superhero ingredient blue tansy, which calms and relieves inflammation on a magical level. It’s like a meditation and spa vacation for your skin.
How would you like to develop MLS -brand in the future?
I have so many dreams about what is ahead. We are growing quickly, but my foundation and core philosophy stand so firmly on the grounds of intimacy, on being special, and on delivering the most over-the-top client service and a truly personal experience. I want the Skin collection to remain compact and concise, and for each piece to a vital part of my ideal ritual. I have no desire to add dozens of new treats to the line, but I very much wish to continue adding to our story, and to bring in new pieces that deepen our connection to self and skin.
Looking forward, I see space for more collaboration with other artisans, for just a few more special products that I feel deeply pulled to develop, and I am also looking every day to discover more ways to delight each client individually – asking myself what more I can share that will show each and every one of you how truly grateful I am for your support of this dream of mine.
What would you like to say to the Jolie’s readers?
Thank you. Thank you for being here for me, for trusting in my vision and entrusting me with your skin. Skin in intimate, and I take great pride and honor in taking you into my care. I could not be more excited for all that is ahead, and I look forward to always sharing more with you. You are my inspiration.
In love and beauty, May
