Eating well and staying active is the necessary base to a clear complexion and a healthy body and mind.
— Hannah Bronfman
It's unrealistic not to be able to indulge.
My biggest issue is hyperpigmentation and evening out my skin tone.
I'm prone to breaking out on my chest and back because I work out a lot.
I struggle with candida - usually it manifests on the skin and can be so pesty, painful, and irritating! It also feeds off sugar and gluten and is nearly impossible to rid yourself of.
With workout classes, I always want to know that I can improve with each class I take. But I don't think I'll ever master the art of peddling quickly with little resistance, at least not without feeling like I'm going to fly off the bike.
I normally do a workout in the morning so I have the rest of my day to do what I want.
I came from a family where if you say you're going to do something, then you do it, and you do it well.
The way I see it, any attention I get, for whatever reason, just draws more eyes to the causes that I believe in.
I believe that what I am putting into my body is just as important as what I am putting on my body.
Don't be too close-minded, and don't think there's only one way to get to where you want to be. There are a thousand ways to get there, and if one way doesn't work, try the other.
On the lids, I stick to browns and golds. It doesn't look like I'm wearing a lot on my eyes, but I don't really know how to do a smoky eye, so I just try and keep it pretty easy.
Art is definitely a passion of mine, but one that I couldn't afford to keep-up post-graduation, so I turned to DJing to pay the bills.
Dating a creative pushes me to think outside the box.
Girls are so in their head about their body image. It doesn't matter how confident you are - it's hormones!
Don't get married to the idea of something having to be one way.
My days are always changing, as some days, I'm on a shoot, or I will be DJing in the middle of the day or evening.
I consider fitness, diet, and beauty to be essential to a balanced self.
I live a normal lifestyle, but I try to make healthy decisions while doing it.
I work out all the time, but because it's good for my mental state.
Goals give us purpose, which, in turn, motivates us to make ourselves the best version in all aspects of your life.
If you don't work through the things that haunt you early, they'll stay with you for the rest of your life.
I can count on one hand the number of times I've done SoulCycle. I was not soul'd.
I went to a private girls' school where I was one out of five girls in the class who looked like me.
I definitely have a lot of ambition.
It is very important to moisturize your body! Your skin has a better glow when it's hydrated.
I want to share knowledge about things I've learned over the years with a younger generation that is seeking the truth.
I've always been about the balance - not sacrificing one thing for the other and not being an extremist.
I feel like when things are really hectic it's important to carve out time for yourself.
I'm a firm believer that you don't have to pick one career path.
Growing up in Manhattan has given me a thick skin.
I've been in relationships in the past where communication wasn't great, and when it is, it makes it so much easier to talk to each other.
I feel like as you blossom more, you become more mature, and I'm definitely excited for whatever life has to throw at me, and knowing me, I'm definitely going to be sharing it all.
I try to drink lots of water and tea before bed.
I have been interested in beauty from an early age. My sister used to put face masks on me and do me up with my mother's makeup!
I feel like 2015 is the year of wellness.
I don't really use fragrance. I use essential oils, but not necessarily every day.
When I have dinner, I get off my phone, smell my food, and chew it well.
When you really listen to what your body is telling you, it's easy to treat it well. For example, if my fingernails are weak, I know I need more calcium. If I have dry skin, I'm dehydrated or need to exfoliate.
I try to only go out twice a week. More than that would leave me feeling pretty run down.
My mother is an African-American from the South Side of Chicago who married a white guy in 1978. She was hyperaware of racism and made me aware of that.
My whole shtick is that I want to contribute to New York's culture via restaurants, nightlife, whatever... but to be more conscious, more aware, more sustainable. It's more than just 'being responsible as a culture.' It's having an ethical chain of production.
I feel comfortable in my skin, so it doesn't matter what I wear or how I look. Confidence is my best accessory.
If you want to achieve something, you're going to run into roadblocks, but you have to learn how to pivot and explore your options.
If I'm running on my own, no one's holding me accountable, so I will stop and walk.
I come from a musical family but never tapped into it until I was thrown into a DJing gig during college.
Ultimately, I want people to be inspired to go on their own journey of self-discovery.
For me, I work two very different jobs - from DJing to being a wellness person. So sleep is crucial; it makes me function way better throughout my day and gives me sustained energy to get through all the night events.
Regardless of how Beautified turned out, it was a great experience, and it was an excellent product and one that people really appreciated in the space.
A healthy heart is the key to longevity.
