You all know how dedicated we are to spreading the word about the importance of self-care rituals. With this in mind, we wanted to share a quote from Lavinia Errico, founder of Equinox Fitness Clubs and our Chief Wellness Officer, about how she uses rituals to help create meaning and intention in her life, and to bring a sense of peace and balance to her very full and busy days:
“Creating a wellness or skincare ritual is about doing something with a clear mind and clear intention – specifically focusing on you and you only. Ritual starts by creating a day-to-day practice for yourself. For my skincare, it’s about pleasure – I bring pleasure into my life through these self-rituals. I turn my skincare into a 2, 3, or 7-minute Lavinia ritual of cherishing me. And as a result, my skin looks and feels amazing.”
Lavinia recently shared some of her favorite things (including two of our products) with Poppy + Seed (one of our favorite platforms for wellness content). Read on for her picks!
