Beautiful Voices is our ongoing blog series that highlights inspiring, empowering women. Our most recent Beautiful Voice is Jennifer Davis. See what she says when Annmarie asks her some questions about her own personal beauty…
Jennifer is originally from Chicago, but currently lives in the Washington, DC area with her soul mate and their adorable yellow Lab. She is always looking for ways to improve her health through eating organic foods and using chemical free products. She enjoys having the opportunity to share her knowledge with others and give recommendations for the great products she has found.
Who or what is your biggest inspiration?
I find ordinary people who strive to make a difference in the world to be my biggest inspiration. Whether it’s starting a company that truly helps people or writing a blog that gets much needed information out there or something as small as starting an online petition for a cause that you’re passionate about – it all makes a difference.
This is my new favorite example, it’s so inspiring – A journey to give back through random acts of kindness every day of the year: http://www.366randomacts.org/
What's the best piece of advice you've ever received?
To live a life true to myself, not the life others may expect of me. If I hadn’t taken this advice my life today would be very different. My life is full of love and hope for the future and I wouldn’t want it to be any other way.
Where and when do you feel most at peace?
I feel most at peace relaxing at home with my boyfriend and our wonderful dog who accept me with all my flaws and love me endlessly. They make me feel as if all is right in the world even when it isn’t.
What does beauty mean to you?
Loving who you are.
What makes you feel beautiful?
Being able to feel confident without make up. I was never able to do this before I switched over to natural products like Annmarie Skin Care.
What’s your favorite beauty secret or tip?
Eat organic foods whenever possible and always wear sunblock!
What do you do when you want to pamper yourself?
I use one of Annmarie’s scrubs (either the Ayurvedic Scrub or the Dead Sea Scrub) and follow it with the Coconut Honey Mask. My skin always feels wonderful and glows for hours after!
How does Annmarie's mission fit into your lifestyle?
I made the change from toxic skin care products almost 3 years ago. I went into it not knowing where to start, but little by little I have been able to replace all of my old toxic products with a safe, natural alternative. Finding Annmarie’s products has been a life saver for me! I can feel good about using her skin care line and not have to worry about ingredients that could potentially be harmful to me – and they really work!
What are your words of wisdom to other beauties out there?
This is one of my favorite quotes: “For beautiful eyes, look for the good in others; for beautiful lips, speak only words of kindness; and for poise, walk with the knowledge that you are never alone.” – Audrey Hepburn
Isn't she beautiful?
