We’ve Got a Girl Crush!">Posted on
Q & A with Tracy Anderson Global Fitness Expert and EB Spokeswoman
“Behold Beautiful!” That’s exactly what our name means in Italian. Its something that consumers don’t expect, but Sally began EB to celebrate your beauty as well as the wonder of nature., We continue to be inspired by compassion for all living beings, especially the Intelligent Beauties who use our products, you!
Recently, two of our favorite Intelligent Beauties sat down for a beauty talk. Paige Padgett, a leading authority on cruelty-free beauty, an author, in-demand celebrity makeup artist and EB Brand Ambassador. She came prepared with a list of questions for global fitness expert and EB spokeswoman Tracy Anderson. Don’t miss out on this exchange of life-changing beauty ideas.
Paige Padgett: Ecco Bella wants to reclaim the concept of beauty from the profit-driven interests who dilute the ideal. How do you define "Intelligent Beauty"?
Tracy Anderson: “I believe in the vital need to get back to nature as much as possible with beauty.”
I also believe strongly in the feminine power to be expressive and artistic with makeup. I just don’t believe that makeup should make us dirty. Makeup and cosmetics are selling us a dream of beauty and desirability while making our systems toxic. I do not believe in selling unhealthy products to women through the desire to be more desired physically while stripping us of our unique beauty and understanding of how to properly care for our whole bodies.
PP: Ecco Bella is a big fan of yours and I’m sure they love that you're a fan of theirs! What attracted you to the products?
TA: I believe in balance. To truly create balance, you have to tend to all of the layers of yourself and consistently check in with how your alignment is. Everything you embrace in your lifestyle has a cause and an effect. While a product may serve one part of you well it may throw another part of it out of alignment. After 18 focused years in health and wellness I understand the importance of embracing advancements in science and technology without denaturing our health and wellbeing. The roots and mission of Ecco Bella and its founder Sally Malanga are completely nothing short of inspiring.
“It is no wonder her products have truly transformed the health of my skin. They are built from the roots up with integrity and alignment with nature and all living things. When you respect nature, you respect beauty”
Trust me you want someone fighting for your skin the way they fight for the environment and animal rights. Sally is an advocate of nature and that makes her the beauty industry's best kept secret.
I am proud to be the new spokesperson for this amazing brand that promotes authentic, ethically made beauty products that are truly superior to others I’ve used in the past. I love that partnering with Ecco Bella means helping to educate women about Intelligent Beauty and making smart, healthy decisions for their body and the world.
PP: Do you have a favorite EB product? Why does that product stand out?
TA: Where do I possibly begin. The face wash cleared my skin and kept it clear more than any other product I have ever seen. The Age Antidote Day Cream doubles as the most magical skin smoothing primer I have ever seen. The ingredients in it that protect us from the environment also make my skin smooth and perfected before I even apply makeup. The eye cream has taken a decade off my eyes.
PP: So, tell us, what is your daily beauty routine?
TA: I wake up and wash my face, spritz on the Mist-On Toner with VitaminCells, apply the Age Antidote Day Cream and Eye Nutrients Cream. I use a light coat of Natural FlowerColor Foundation with a brush, a little powder, blush, curl my lashes, FlowerColor Mascara and a pop of FlowerColor Lip Gloss. At night, I wash, tone, apply night cream and eye cream.
PP: Last question:what's the one type of beauty product you can't live without?
TA: I have to wash my face and moisturize. I work out every day so I have to wash my face and I am a 41-year-old mother of a teenager and a toddler so I need to keep those worry lines moisturized.
