Our 2019 Happiness Goals

ROWAIDA
Sag Harbor Manager

1. What are your happiness goals for 2019?
I want to free myself from things that cause me pain or anguish or conflict or confusion. That will mean I’ll have to quit dwelling over these matters and start dealing with them head on. This will allow more sunshine in my day, everyday.

2. What is your favorite self care ritual?
Talking to a good friend, who is patient enough to listen, centered enough to let me vent and experienced enough to never pass judgement, all while I sport Tammy Fender’s Luculent mask on my face. By the time I’m done, I’m rejuvenated inside and outside. 

3. What is your favorite clean beauty product and why ?
Epi Peel by Tammy Fender is a constant in my world. This super fine exfoliator is brimming with beautiful botanical ingredients such as Peppermint, Spearmint, Shea, Rosemary, Lavender, Iris root and Great Burdock. The delicate scent is almost therapeutic and if you leave it on for an additional 15 minutes, it will double as a mask. Rinse it off and your glowing skin will appear. It’s a little facial in a little jar!

4. Which clean beauty trend are you most excited to enjoy?
Technology detox days.

1. What are your happiness goals for 2019?

  • Spend less time on my phone/computer and more time being present in my day to day
  • Go on our honeymoon!
  • Continue to strive and grow in my new career 
  • Strengthen my yoga practice 
  • Enjoy my new Book Club with my best girlfriends!
2. What is your favorite self care ritual ?
I love a good bath especially in the colder months. I'll light a bunch of candles and mix my own potion of essential oils and epsom salts. My phone does not come with me and as much as I love our two dogs, I leave them outside, otherwise they just sit there and stare at me :)
 
3. What is your favorite clean beauty product and why ?
I just can't get away from the Hannes Dottir line! I've fallen in love with the Crystal Aura. Instead of water from the faucet, I'll add a favorite mist to wet the crystals completely before I exfoliate. I follow immediately with the mist, again, and my face oils. My skin has never felt so soft and clear!
 
4. Which clean beauty trend are you most excited to enjoy?
CBD! But for the face. I've truly benefitted from Lord Jones' CBD Body Lotion, which I use on my body after a tough yoga practice or on my hip from when I had arthroscopic labral repair earlier this year.  I'll look forward to seeing new topical formulations that integrate CBD to cure ailments like rosacea, acne and dermatitis.

Business Development Co-Ordinator

1. What are your happiness goals for 2019?
There is nothing more important to me than health and peace of mind for myself and my loved ones. Everything else is secondary.

2. What is your favorite self care ritual ?
I love relaxing with a book and applying my favorite mask. I am currently obsessed with May Lindstrom's Honey Mud Masque and mixing a little of the Problem Solver. The added element of the Problem Solver boosts the purifying action while the Honey Mud Masque hydrates. 

3. What is your favorite clean beauty product and why ?
The Clean Dirt from May Lindstrom is my current favorite. It's a quick fix when I need brighter, smoother skin in an instant. 

4. Which clean beauty trend are you most excited to enjoy?
CBD is still the category I am most excited about and the potential is endless. It is a category that intersects between wellness and beauty.

Viktoria
Director of Treatments

1. What are your happiness goals for 2019?

  • Formulate a skin care/beauty product
  • Get reiki certified and use it in practice. 
  • Continue to strengthen ONDA’s treatments and grow in my career of esthetician and expand our menu of services. 
  • Organize my days to have time for working out and yoga. 
  • Start my bee farm in Riverhead NY and grow more fruit and veggies in the garden, with the help of my parents :) 
2. What is your favorite self care ritual ? 

I love hot baths and showers . Water cleans your energy and takes heaviness and tension away, uplifts your mood, and benefits sore muscles. Often I light a candle or a Japanese incense and apply my favorite Problem Solver Mask from May Lindstrom on my face and chest and take a hot bath with the Goop Bath Salt or a blend of Epsom salts and essential oils, sit back and recharge.

3. What is your favorite clean beauty product and why ?
I trust Marie Veronique 100% and use each and every serum, mask, toner and oil from the range. I’ve seen noticeable results using it myself and in my facial treatments. Every line has its “star product” though.

African Botanics Baobab Clay Oxygenating Cleanser takes off make-up and cleanses thoroughly leaving my skin pure, supple and radiant.

Hannes Dottir Seamasque is a multifunctional mask that exfoliates, detoxifies, nourishes and tightens.

Living Libations body oil/cleanser  is best to use in or after shower to lock in moisture for soft smooth skin.

Of course, Vintner’s Daughter's Active Botanical Serum is an outstanding anti-aging skincare product as it treats numerous skin conditions and moisturizes at the same time.

4. Which clean beauty trend are you most excited to enjoy?

Happy to see that more people realize that “beautiful skin comes from within”. So the One Stop Wellness Shop will be the move, where products and services compliment each other, offering helpful holistic methods, approaches and services to achieve the goal of beauty and wellbeing. I’m excited that research and recognition of CBD oil’s benefits helped to open people’s minds to incorporating it in clean beauty and wellness products, where before we only saw the hemp seed oil. I believe that CBD is potent in treating inflammation of tissue cells. It helps with muscle aches and pains and when taken internally, can ease your tension. Now I’m looking forward to seeing it in skincare products to help with conditions like dermatitis, rosacea, acne..etc

Catherine
Tribeca & Sag Harbor Esthetician

1. What are your happiness goals for 2019?
Ultimately, what makes me the happiest is discovering more about myself, my independence, and how I can evolve into a more well-rounded person. Travel plays a huge role in this for me. If I need to reset and center myself a quick trip is always the answer. While discovering new places and meeting new people I learn more about who I am and how I can improve. Existing outside of my comfort zone and adapting to new situations always ignites a fire within me and makes me feel empowered. 

2. What is your favorite self care ritual ? 
When I am busy with work/life I try to set aside at least 45 minutes a day exclusively to focus on myself. Whether that be through meditation (with my Calm app - highly recommend), exercise, cooking, reading, nice long relaxing bath - it is my time for me to decompress and focus on my mind/body.

3. What is your favorite clean beauty product and why ?
GUA SHA, GUA SHA, GUA SHA! I am completely obsessed! It is my favorite way to end my night time routine. After applying my skin care I grab my Gua Sha from the refrigerator and spend ten minutes focusing on stimulating my muscles, lymph system, and circulation. l finish by focusing on different acupressure points which helps with any congestion, headaches, jaw tension, and overall facial relaxation. 

4. Which clean beauty trend are you most excited to enjoy?
Facial Massage!!! We are constantly finding new workout classes to keep our bodies in shape - why are we neglecting the muscles of our face?! I love that facial massage is finally incorporated in our beauty routines. It is so important to keep those muscles engaged so that we age naturally, and stay sculpted! In each treatment I give I incorporate facial massage - who doesn't want a face lift without going under the knife!

Amanda
Sag Harbor Sales Associate

1. What are your happiness goals for 2019?
Fewer hours in feeble pursuit of multitasking and lots more time in real, meaningful conversation. It's why I look forward to the days I spend at ONDA.

2. What is your favorite self care ritual ? 
Outdoor exercise and naps

3. What is your favorite clean beauty product and why ?
About twice a week, I exfoliate with the Seamasque from Hannes Dottir. There's magic in this Icelandic brew of sea kelp and fjord-harvested minerals and I have never used it without someone commenting on my "glow." The lingering spearmint notes are catnip to my younger son, and more cuddles = indescribable joy. 

4. Which clean beauty trend are you most excited to enjoy?
Without question, the new science of sleep optimization. There's real evidence that inadequate sleep dulls our cognitive function, emotional intelligence and judgement. I've made basically every mistake; here's hoping a little discipline, a little CBD and a digital curfew can undo years of circadian mayhem.

Debbie
Sag Harbor Massage Therapist

1. What are your happiness goals for 2019?
To live my life with harmlessness, friendliness, and interest.

2. What is your favorite self care ritual ? 
Turning my cell phone completely off for hours.

3. What is your favorite clean beauty product and why ?
Native Deodorant. As a massage therapist, I tend to sweat when I'm working, so I need something that really works but won't poison me. 

4. Which clean beauty trend are you most excited to enjoy?
Not much into following trends, but lately I'm into cannabis oil, chaga extract, and dragon's blood, which are all basically natural anti-inflammatory anti-oxidants.
