Beauty / IN THE BAG

Sofia Fanego takes us back to nature

Love at first sight. Some people just have the magic, so much so we have to capture them twice. First it was early morning cliffside for RUSSH.com, then we explored Singapore in the heat for our Paradising issue, and now Argentinian beauty Sofia Fangeo opens up on her all natural beauty routine.

My morning beauty routine is …
Breathe, clean my tongue and my teeth, do transcendental meditation, some postures of tai chi, brush my body, take a shower, wash my face with organic chamomile tea and [use] the gel of the real plant of aloe vera to refresh my skin and start my day wonderful.

My night beauty routine is …
Take a bath with a mix of salts, wash my face with organic rose or lavender, drink a lemon tea and breathe after writing in my diary or reading my book.

My favourite products for body is …
Raw organic coconut oil, mixing with organic essential oils like sandalwood, patchouli, frankincense, rose … and put all around my body from my hair to my toes.

My favourite form of exercise is …
Walk in the nature, breathe fresh air, stretch my body doing yoga or tai chi, dance dance dance …

My favourite detox is …
Green green juices, green tea, green mask, green nature.

My favourite retox is …
Eat pistachio and chocolate ice cream in winter, watch classical movies, it is fun. I love ice cream, so it can be a detox if I enjoy it and I feel happy doing it!
