TGIF! We always look forward to the weekend as it means it’s time to feature one of our favorite Facebook friends… so without further ado, Juice Beauties, we’re happy to introduce Julia!
Click Read More below for her interview!
Hi Julia! We first ‘met’ you a number of months ago when we noticed you sharing how much you were adoring your Juice Beauty products. Since then we love that we’ve not only gotten to know you, but other beauties in the community have too! For those that aren’t as familiar yet, mind telling us a little bit about yourself?
I’m a wife, mother, daughter, and nurse. I love to play practical jokes because I believe laughter is the best medicine. I live by William Penn’s quote, “Those who love beyond the world cannot be separated by it.” I wake up every day with realistic ambitions to help as many people I possibly can.
Don’t forget you’re one of our best Juice Beauty cheerleaders too! We’re curious, what was the very first Juice Beauty product that got you hooked?
The first Juice Beauty product that had me hooked would have to be the Blemish Clearing Serum. I saw it advertised in one of my favorite magazines months ago and decided to give it a try since my skin seemed to “go crazy” after having our first child 29 months ago. Since I’m a nurse, I do know this happens to some women due to all of the hormonal changes. It seemed that I tried everything on the market…literally. This product changed my life.
Is that also your favorite Juice Beauty product or has another taken your top honors?
This is such a hard question for me to answer because I have so many Juice Beauty products now and I LOVE them all. Since I have to answer, I would still choose the Blemish Clearing Serum or Blemish Be Gone (same product, it’s just made for on the go). It keeps my face clear and my confidence high.
Any beauty secrets you’re willing to share with us?
Give Juice Beauty a try! Seriously, IT WORKS! As with any product, make sure to follow the directions given. The products are ORGANIC and they have something for every skin type. I wish someone would have given me this advice a couple years ago. I have currently changed all of my beauty products, even shampoo & conditioner, to the Juice Beauty line because it is that great (in my eyes). (Note: We love this answer…and we promise we didn’t even sweet talk her to say it!)
When or where do you feel most beautiful?
I honestly feel most beautiful in the afternoons, at home, after I wash my face with Juice Beauty cleanser, apply Juice Beauty Blemish Clearing Serum, and then the Juice Beauty Stem Cellular Repair Moisturizer. I am not much of a makeup person. I wear some occasionally (and it is also from the Juice Beauty line), but for the most part, you will see me fresh faced or with very little makeup applied. I, personally, tend to prefer more of a natural look (and so does my husband).
We believe looking good doesn’t come without feeling good too. How do you stay healthy?
I eat right and I try to exercise often, at least three times a week. I also take vitamin supplements daily and drink plenty of water. I do my best to set a good example for my daughter.
If you had to pick, what is your favorite fruit & how do you eat it?
I love “Granny Smith” or green apples. I simply wash and eat them straight from the market.
Here’s a yummy Organic Apple Salad recipe that Julia shared with us too. We can’t wait to try it!
2-4 organic red apples, cut into 1/2″ pieces
2-4 organic green apples, cut into 1/2″ pieces
8 oz organic cheddar cheese, cubed
2 stalks organic celery, chopped
1 jar macadamia nuts, coarsely chopped
1/2 cup organic dark raisins
1/2 cup organic golden raisins
Juice from 1/3 of one organic orange
1/8 tsp organic ground cinnamon
1 small container organic vanilla yogurt
In a large bowl, combine all ingredients except yogurt, orange juice, and cinnamon. In a separate small bowl, whisk together the remaining ingredients. Pour over in large bowl and toss gently.
Thank you Julia! You’ve been amazing to ‘meet’ and we love having you as a part of our Juice Beauty community.
