Beauty & Wellbeing Routine: Megan Larsen, Founder of Sodashi.

First up, briefly tell us a little bit about yourself!

I’ve always had a passion for natural therapies, particularly aromatherapy. After completing an advanced course in aromatherapy in Provence in the late 90’s I was inspired to create chemical-free skin care products for my own sensitive skin, as I couldn’t find any natural skincare on the market that was effective. Word spread and I was met with such a demand from my products that I started to build a business and Sodashi was born.

Tell us about your daily beauty routine.

I love to do it all, every morning and every night. Starting with cleansing (I use the Clay Cleanser with Sandalwood), followed by compressing with Rejuvenating Concentrate which is amazing for retexturising and balancing the skin, then the Rejuvenating Skin Boost which is very firming and either the Rejuvenating Moisturiser, Samadara Ultimate Age-Defying Crème or Balancing Serum. I always apply Eye Lifting Gel and Eye and Lip Smoother and love to moisturise my body with Vanilla Body Butter.

♥ Spa @ the Four Seasons in Paris… bliss!

What’s the one beauty treatment you can’t live without? And your favourite place to have it done?

The Samadara Ultimate Age-Defying Facial Treatment is my favourite and I make sure I have one monthly. It uses our most powerful anti-ageing product Samadara Crème and a thermal mask that heats to body temperature to infuse the product into your skin. The treatment involves a series of signature Sodashi facial massages with Rose Quartz Crystals to de-stress the skin; it visibly turns back the hands of time and leaves my skin looking radiant. When in Europe I always have a Samadara treatment at the beautiful spa at Four Seasons George V in Paris.

Who do you trust with your hair in Perth, and why?

I’m between hairdressers at the moment. (ED: Maybe check out our hairdressers review section!)

Favourite budget / at home beauty treatment?

Sleep! While you are asleep your skin is repairing and rejuvenating. To maximize your shut-eye time apply good quality skin care products to nourish your skin with the nutrients and anti-oxidants it needs to renew itself.

Your three, absolutely cannot live without, favourite products?

Samadara Ultimate Age-Defying Crème, Sodashi Rejuvenating Serum and our new Eye Mask.

♥ Antioxidant rich foods

Do you have any secret tips you use to keep looking / feeling great?

Using high quality chemical-free skincare! I also believe in a holistic approach when it comes to my overall wellbeing. I eat a healthy balanced diet, exercise, take antioxidants, drink plenty of water and make sure I take time out to relax and unwind.

What beauty treatment/ wellbeing activity would you love to try but haven’t yet? (Due to time, money, scared etc!)

A health retreat!

Describe a typical day of eating for you.

I don’t eat red meats and try to stay away from processed foods. My fridge usually contains fresh organic vegetables, biodynamic eggs, biodynamic tofu, goat and sheep cheese. And I indulge in a bit of dark chocolate every now and then! I always make sure I eat my meals in a quiet settled environment to maximise nutritional uptake.

♥ The Eye of Revelation – the source of the Five Tibetan Rites

Describe your fitness routine.

Every morning I perform the Five Tibetan Rites, a series of exercises for healing, rejuvenation and longevity. I also spend a minimum of 20 minutes on my cross trainer.

Do you take part in any alternative therapies or take supplements? If so, discuss.

I have monthly Bowen Therapy, Reflexology and Acupuncture treatments.

How do you like to relax? What are your favourite ways to de-stress?

I meditate twice a day, every day. It gives me such mental clarity and it is a wonderful tool for managing stressful situations, or stress in general. Its main benefit though is that is makes me feel and be happy.
I’m always most relaxed when I’m with family and friends. It’s my favourite way to unwind!
