1. Slow pace
Because we’re living our life at one hundred miles per hour, it’s important to learn to slow down in order to spare ourselves, be more efficient and less stressed. This is why I try to reduce the number of things I schedule for each evening, and try to set a single priority in order to successfully go to bed earlier and to sleep for 8 whole hours. Frankly, it is effective, but it requires a huge effort every day!
2. Move to get rid of the stress
To release the stress caused by the everyday work, the crowds we encounter while moving around, and the millions of things we all have in mind, working out is an excellent idea. To each their rhythm and their choice of the moment, whether intense or more Zen—there is a way to find happiness. Need to let off steam? I go running or attend a boot camp. Need to relax and reconnect with myself? I opt for a Pilates session with Valérie Raby (Lolë ambassador) at Vibe Pilates or a yoga session with Lolë.
3. Have a healthy meal
It is important to eat light at night to aid digestion and not “store” too many rich foods. In summer especially, I opt for fresh food: a soup made of fresh vegetables (gazpacho), a Greek salad (tomatoes, cucumbers, feta, Kalamata olives, lemon juice, olive oil), quinoa in tabbouleh, and the best for last: my salmon tartare. I therefore reveal my secret recipe, super easy to achieve, guaranteed success!
- 1 fresh salmon fillet: remove the skin and cut into very small cubes
- 2 tablespoons breadcrumbs
- 4 teaspoons French shallots, finely chopped
- 1 tablespoon chopped fresh basil
- 1 tablespoon chopped capers
- ½ avocado (replacing mayonnaise—it’s my healthy option)
- 3 tablespoons olive oil
- 2 tablespoons chopped fresh chives
- 1 teaspoon Tabasco
- Salt and pepper
- Lemon juice (to taste)
Mix all ingredients; prepare your servings in ramekins. Put in the freezer for ten minutes to set slightly and empty the ramekin on the plate (upside down) for a beautiful presentation. Sprinkle with black and white sesame seeds, serve with a green salad and expect your guests to be pleasantly surprised!
4. Adopt an essential beauty routine, for a healthy and rested skin
With makeup, pollution, sun, biting cold in winter, sweat and various small attacks the skin endures every day, it is essential to remove all traces of makeup before bed, but also to moisturize our skin. We want it to be healthy, toned, and luminous. A radiant complexion starts with how we choose to preserve it by cleaning and moisturizing.
