Diana and I go way back.
She and I met almost 15 years ago. I was a bright-eyed and bushy-tailed youngin’ starting out in Los Angeles, and she had just gotten her esthetician career off and running. It was love at first facial.
I loved how Diana (pronounced Dee-anna) and I could talk about anything, and we were on the same page about all things natural. Several years later, I would have Diana to thank for referring me to The Institute of Integrative Nutrition, where I studied holistic nutrition just before Veggie Magnifique was born!
See, continued learning is a life value of mine. According to Tony Robbins, growth is one of the core human needs. One thing I’ve always truly admired about Diana is her commitment to constantly furthering her education. She’s always learning and growing, honing her skills and savoir-faire. As a result, she truly is a holistic healer, not just an esthetician. And this is key. (Read more about Diana.)
A few years back, Diana, with the help of her daughter Kristina, created Radiance Wellness Spa in breezy and beautiful Santa Monica. This family run spa is truly special – a veritable healing oasis for body, mind, and spirit. They do more than just facials… there’s infrared sauna, reiki, acupuncture, LED body therapy, and even vegan eyelash extensions. (Which came in handy for my wedding!)
Plus, many years ago, after not finding the caliber of products that she wanted for her clients’ facials, Diana started to create her own concoctions. I remember getting little glass jars of her signature oils, and new mixes. Nowadays, Diana Ralys Skin Health products are highly sought after for those in the know. And they are vegan, organic, and cruelty-free, made in small batches and infused with reiki. (Products after my own heart, I declare!)
As you all know, I love supporting small businesses and lovely people! And plus, basically, I would trust Diana with my life.
Today Diana and I chat all about natural skincare – what works, what doesn’t, and why many people don’t get the results they want. Curious about how to choose truly natural products? Or what an organic, state-of-the-art facial entails? It’s all in the video. I hope you enjoy!
For Magnifique friends and fans, Diana has been so kind to offer:
Here’s to old friends, new habits, and choosing to take care of ourselves and the planet.
