Renee Stewart has recently joined our RevitaLash NZ family and we are so happy to have her! Renee embodies all things health and beauty - we are obsessed. So naturally, we were super excited when she agreed to do our first ever Q&A on our blog so we can learn all her secrets.
What does your morning routine look like?
"My morning routine is super important to me, it sets me up for the day and leaves me feeling ready to take on anything! My alarm usually goes off at about 5:30 am which is when I get up and head to the kitchen to drink a big glass of warm lemon water. I will then do some sort of exercise – I will either head to F45 or take the dogs for a walk. After that, I usually enjoy a coffee and some breakfast while checking emails, Instagram notifications etc. I then have a quick shower, apply my morning skincare, a little makeup, do my hair and pop my outfit on for the day!"
You have incredible skin - what are the non-negotiable skincare or beauty products that you use?
"Aw thank you! There are soooo many products I love and use every day but I 100% cannot live without my Jeuneora Renew Plus – I am obsessed! I also can’t live without my Ultraceuticals cleanser, Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Serum, Lancome Advanced Youth Activating Eye Cream, Kiehl’s Avocado Face Mask and of course, my RevitaLash Advanced Eyelash Conditioner!"
Any other skincare secrets that you can share?
"Always double cleanse (especially at night) – the first cleanse removes makeup, bacteria and dirt allowing the second to do a deeper and more thorough cleanse. It also allows any serums and active ingredients to work to their full potential on your skin.
Don’t forget to look after your skin from the inside as well as the outside – Drink lots of water and eat plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables. I also swear by Jeuneora’s Renew Plus for this – collagen literally does wonders for your skin!"
Do you wear makeup every day and if so, what does your everyday makeup routine consist of?
"I don’t wear a lot of makeup unless I have an event or a special occasion so my daily makeup usually will just consist of a little BB cream, bronzer and mascara – I love a natural glowy ‘no-make-up’ make-up look!"
Asides from RevitaLash (obviously!) what are your favourite skincare and makeup brands?
"I have so many! Lancome, YSL Beauty, Kiehls, Ultraceuticals, Hourglass, Estee Lauder, Tom Ford Beauty, Bobbi Brown and Clinique – just to name a few!"
How long have you been using RevitaLash Advanced Eyelash Conditioner for?
"About 2 months and I am never going back – the results I have had in just 8 weeks have been incredible!"
Do you apply RevitaLash in the morning or at night?
"Every night before bed as part of my night-time skincare routine."
What is your favourite beauty treatment?
"I absolutely love a relaxing facial with a massage. I am also a big fan of microdermabrasion!"
What’s your favourite healthy meal or snack?
"Avocado on toast!"
And what is your treat weakness?
"Chocolate… my BIGGEST weakness!"
What are your best tips for living a healthy life, for both body and mind?
"Eat a healthy balanced diet, move your body regularly, drink more water, get a good night's sleep, stress less and practice self-love every day. Life is short, it is so important that we take time to look after ourselves!!"
How is lockdown in your household going? Have you stumbled across any great baking recipes, games, activities? Please share anything that will keep us entertained!
"Lockdown is actually going pretty well so far – I am such a home-body so I am loving having quality time at home with my partner and our two wee dogs. I haven’t done any baking yet, but I plan to make my famous apple crumble this weekend which I am SO excited for. I am also dying to try Chelsea Winter’s ‘Lock-Down Loaf’ recipe - I have heard great things. I am also working out and walking almost every day which I am absolutely loving!"
If you could have any superpower for a day, what would it be and why?
"I wish I had some sort of superpower to spread love and happiness to those that need it most."
