We're pleased to share glimpse into the life of one of our amazing women and stockists, Ashleigh Scott - renowned holistic facialist, mother and owner and founder of The Facialist. Let's uncover her daily rituals and cherished self-care practices.
Morning Ritual: Setting the Tone for Success
What's the first thing you do in the morning to set a positive tone for the day?
My youngest, Freddie, is still waking a lot through the night - so this is very dependable on how our night has been. I love doing an at-home (app based) workout, or a quick walk with the dogs. But if the morning doesn’t go to plan, I will always reset after daycare drop-off and before work mode with my morning smoothie. It is loaded with so much nutrients and goodness I know I’m setting myself to win the day.
Daily Inspiration: Staying Motivated on the Go
Could you share a daily practice or routine that keeps you inspired and motivated?
My commute from home to the salon is often surplus of 30 minutes so I have become a little addicted to podcasts. I find hearing other business journeys so refreshing, and listening to women in business I admire will often leave me motivated within my own business.
Evening Ritual: Unwinding as a Busy Working Mum
How do you unwind and practice self-care in the evening after a busy day? Any tips on how you find time for this as a busy working mum?
I have become obsessed with the Trudermal LED mask. Light therapy is incredible for the skin, and this mask is so portable, practical and easy to use – which answers the second part of your question; I can have t on while I prep dinner, or sort the kids. Easy! Doing something which makes me feel my best, whilst looking after the fam. Win Win!
Favourite Product: A Touch of Joy
Which is your favourite Embodyme Nurturing Body Oil?
I love all of them, but if I had to pick a favourite it would be Joy. It is the perfect blend that is both uplifting and grounding.
Words of Wisdom: Self-Care is Not Selfish
What's a piece of advice or words of wisdom that you might like to share in relation to self-care or finding time for yourself?
Self-care is not selfish. I know this is a large part of Embodyme's foundation, but it rings true for so many of us! You cannot serve from an empty vessel. Even just 20 minutes to replenish; Deep breathes in the sun, a walk, a massage, a facial. I have come to identify my triggers, and when I can see a spiral coming I will jump on any gaps we might have in the diary and after a massage with on our therapists I feel lighter, restored and grounded to approach the thing that felt unfathomable before.
