This January, we are Giving The Process: For each of the first 30 days of the month, we’re highlighting something—and someone—amazing in the wellness world, representing the beauty, health, style, creative, energetic and/or spiritual boost you need to make yourself a priority in the new year—and decade. On January 31, one charmed follower will win one of every item and ritual we highlight, including a $1,000 gift card for Live The Process!
They say it takes 30 days to create a habit—sign ups for our newsletter, follow us on IG and tell us how you’re hoping to make taking care of your physical, emotional, intellectual and/or spiritual self a priority this year—to make 2020 about self-care without guilt.
Today’s gift is “Glow From Within” by Joanna Vargas + Daily Serum.
My name is: Joanna Vargas.
I’m known for being: A celebrity esthetician and founder of Joanna Vargas Salons and Skin Care.
I'm sharing: My new book, Glow from Within! And my signature Daily Serum.
You can find it at: It officially launches in February, but is now available for pre-order on JoannaVargas.com.
What inspired me to write it was: I’ve been doing facials for almost 20 years and tend to hear the same concerns from women all over the world. Every client has their own personal story with their skin, but most people think their skin is about their DNA. Part of what I do is educate my clients and explain that our skin is telling a story about what’s happening inside our bodies or happening in our lives. I get lots of DMs from people all over asking questions. I wanted to create a guide, so that—even if I never meet them because they’re not based in LA or NYC near my salon—they can still benefit from my tips and expert advice. The book includes my advice, key ingredients, details about finding a key routine, what we can do to change the appearance of our skin and much more.
What makes it special is: It’s my very first book!
One thing you can’t miss is: I am including personal stories from clients and the best celebrity beauty secrets I’ve learned over the years.
Your body will thank you because: Nothing is more beautiful than someone who takes care of themself and reflects health.
This will help you prioritize your own health, joy and energy this year because: I include practical advice to start 2020 with a more glowing outlook, right away.
My favorite personal short ritual for self-care in 2020 is: Massaging the face at night by hand, as I explain in the book.
