This week, Marianna Goulandris, Greek shipping heiress & swimwear designer shares her beauty routine exclusively with myfashdiary.com. Marianna talks about her favorite Greek beauty brands, a sweet juice cleanse, and a Greek inspired face mask she makes herself.
-Beauty products I swear by…
Apivita is a Greek brand I swear by as all their products provide 3 basic elements- nature, effectiveness and holistic well being. Apart from using their moisturizer and toner my most loved product is Queen Bee which is a exfoliating rejuvinating cream made with royal jelly from the bee which firms the skin and the honey leaving you feeling smooth and radiant. I make sure I exfoliate at least once a week for fresh skin.
As I spend a lot of time in the sun protection from it is crucial. I rely on Sôvée by AETHIC which is a sunscreen that is not only natural and organic with no nano-particles it very importantly doesn’t kill the oceans coral. Finally for hair I love natural highlights so I always put fresh camomile tea bags in. It always gives my hair a glow and lets the natural blonde shine.
-What’s in my make up bag:
During the day I don’t wear a lot of make up and I like to keep it simple when I do. For eyes I wear Lancôme Hypnôse Precious Cells Mascara This lengthens and cares for the lashes as it contains a regenerating cream. For my skin I use Guinot tinted moisturizer which works for me as a foundation replacement. It gives me a healthy glow and moisturizes my skin. For lips I always use nude colours and always by MAC as I love their variety of shades. I also have an emergency lip balm just in case I have dry lips.
-Vitamin boosters I take:
I start my day with a Berrocca as it gives me an extra boost. In the evening and I take a teaspoon of coconut oil a day. It beats sugar cravings, supports immunity and can be used in your hair and on your skin as well.
-Perfect detox juice mix:
I love things that taste sweet so my favourite juice mix would have to be from my gym kx. Called ‘The Cleanser’ it has orange, lemon, lime juice and grapefruit.
-Favorite healthy dish:
My favourite healthy dish would have to be a traditional Greek salad which has fresh tomatoes, cucumber, olives, peppers and feta cheese and a teaspoon of olive oil.
-Where I get my facials…
There is a great treatment I do at the Guinot clinic in London. Its called the Hydradermie. Its deep cleansing technique hydrates and brightens the skin leaving it oxygenated and radiant.
-My Fitness routine:
I am very into fitness and make sure I work out at least 4 times a week. I have to mix cardio and toning so it would either be a run mixed with weight training or something else cardio based with an hour of pilates.
-Skin & Body treatments I love:
Treatments I love doing are homemade face masks. It’s great fun to do with your girlfriends if your having a night in together. The best one I did was mix parsley and greek yogurt!
-Key to feeling beautiful:
Smiling. If you’re happy on the the inside you’re more likely to come across as beautiful.
