With so many different approaches to self care, wellness, and spirituality at our fingertips, how do we know what works? One of our favorite ways to learn about new practices is, of course, to see what our friends are doing, and how it’s working for them.
That’s what Radiance + Ritual is all about.
Radiance + Ritual is an interview series that takes a deeper look at individuals in our community who are living in their glow—what wellness rituals they practice, what self-care looks like to them, and what routines help them achieve their best self.
What is the clean beauty ambassador program?
We are so excited to introduce you all to both Johanna Braddy and our new Clean Beauty Ambassador program. We created the Clean Beauty Ambassador program with a simple mission, and with wellness in mind—the wellness of consumers, our skin, and our planet. This program was made to create awareness around the clean beauty industry and to create mindfulness about what we put in and on our bodies.
Our Clean Beauty Ambassadors are devoted to our mission of sharing organic & wildcrafted skin care with the world and sharing our core Wild. Beautiful. values. Our values closely align with how our ambassadors live their lives on a daily basis.
Meet Johanna Braddy.
Introduce yourself! Who are you, what do you do for a living, for fun?
My name’s Johanna Braddy, I was born and raised in Peachtree City, Georgia, lived in California for a while, and then all over the map.
I’m an actress, I do TV and film, and for fun I love pretty much anything outdoors—I love camping, hiking, surfing, I love baking and watching TV with my husband.
Walk us through your morning ritual and skin care routine
Every morning, my husband and I get up at 6 am and have either oatmeal or avocado toast together while we play cards. Super cheesy — then we go workout, come back, shower, and that’s when I start skin care.
I usually use the Aloe Herb Cleanser, then I follow with the Neroli Toning Mist, and Wild Fruit Serum after that. I feel like it gives a little bit of a glow, is that just me? It's amazing. Then I mix the Anti-Aging Facial Oil with Earth Minerals Foundation and we’re good to go.
What do you like most about Annmarie Skin Care products and brand?
What I love most about the company is they’re committed to the highest quality ingredients and the most natural ingredients, and the fact that they don’t try to shame you into buying their products.
If you go on their website, they’re so forthright with everything—for any product you want, you can find all of the ingredients with a video and a demo. Its a bunch of natural women, and I feel like they care about making people’s skin healthy rather than trying to reverse time or make you feel bad about what you were born with.
What's your wellness philosophy?
You get back what you put in. The same goes for working out – if you work out hard, you get results. If you eat healthy food, you feel healthy. If you use healthy skin care products, your skin will respond.
How do you get your glow?
I get my glow from spending time with people I really care about. The older I get, the more important family is to me, and friends that truly care about me. I think I also get a glow from being in nature—camping and surfing, and just being around things that are natural.
With so many health trends out there, what ones are sticking for you right now?
There’s a lot of health trends—I used to get so confused. I’d feel like every email I got was conflicting with the previous day’s email of what’s right for you. For me, just going natural is the best way. Food-wise, workout-wise—just using your own body, and skin care.
As natural as you can be. The more natural, the better.
