What is the inspiration behind The Beach People?
The Beach People is inspired by my sister, Victoria, and my life by the sea. Sitting on the beach one afternoon watching our husbands surf I turned to Victoria and said, round towels could be cool and that’s where it all began…
How has being near the beach and sea played a role in your life?
We are such water people… After a big day at work I always jump in the ocean. It just washes the day away. It’s my family’s happy place!
What are your thoughts on sun safety as it relates to beauty and health?
I have fair skin that doesn’t really tan (lucky me ha) so I never muck around with sun safety! I usually cover up with a linen throw over type thing and big straw hat! If we are planning on staying at the beach for more than and a few hours we bring a big gazebo so we can all chill under the shade in between dips.
How do you integrate sun protection into your beauty routine?
I have sensitive skin so I use a light natural foundation with a sunscreen already in it… I try not to load my skin up with too many layers. I prefer to wear a hat if I’m out in the sun.
How does working with your sister impact you?
I couldn’t imagine doing The Beach People with out her. We are completely different she is the doer I’m the dreamer, and it just works.
