LENE, 24, FROM WALVIS BAY, NAMIBIA, AFRICA:
Who is your Beauty inspiration? I would have to say Jennifer Aniston. She is someone I admire for her natural, healthy look. In my eyes, the older she gets the prettier and more elegant she looks. I love the fact that she does not complicate her image with excessive make up – she really is beautiful.
Also, I have to make a mention for my Mum. Cliche, but she is someone who always takes care of herself and her skin. As a beauty therapist she has always protected herself and those closest to her from the effects of sun damage, from living in a hot climate like Namibia. She is someone I look up to!
How do you cope with daily stresses? I find it very difficult but I often unwind by having a nice relaxing bubble-bath after work. In the summer, a picnic in the park usually does the trick!!
What do Namibian girls care about when it comes to Beauty? The main difference would be the climate. As it is always hot we have to protect ourselves from the sun and take sun-protection wherever we go, even if we’re just popping out to the shops. Living by the coast in a hot country puts you at more risk. Sun lotion is everything!
What Beauty product could you not live without? It would have to be Nimue Skin Technology. It is a wonderful skin product for improving the health of your skin. It dramatically improves the signs of ageing, dryness, sensitivity and a rough texture. I have been using this product for the last 8 years. My skin always looks and feels healthy thanks to Nimue. It is AMAZING!
Lene’s Beauty tip: Exfoliating 2 -3 times a week and never going to sleep with make up on!
