Hello FP lover!
We would like to introduce you to our From Plants Beauty Crew AKA our Ambassador. We handpicked and screened each of our Ambassadors as we know they all share the same mission here at From Plants Beauty, Clean Beauty, and giving back to our planet. We would like you to get to know each of them better, so we asked them all to answer some questions about themselves and what beauty tips they would like to share.
Meet Olivia Quinton from @skinpatrol_.
Q: Tell us a little bit about yourself.
A: I am a recent college graduate & I'm from the east coast (but went to school in the midwest). I am a skincare junkie and started my Instagram as a quarantine project! I also love fashion, dogs & pasta. Can't forget the pasta.
Q: If you could be an animal, what animal would you pick?
A: I would be a dolphin!
Q: What are you passionate about?
A: I am passionate about skincare (duh) as well as art! I recently graduated college and was an art history major - my favorite artists are Raphael (the Renaissance is one of my favorite periods), Joan Mitchell, Frank Stella, Cézanne...so many I love!
Q: If you have to choose one skincare item you couldn't live without, what would it be and why?
A: SPF! I firmly believe that without SPF, the rest of your routine is practically useless. Protect your skin first!
Q: What acronym do you use the most IRL?
A: So basic but...LOL! I find myself saying it out loud all the time
Q: Why do you love using clean beauty products?
A: When I go to buy a new product, I always check the ingredients. Here in the U.S., the F.D.A. has very loose regulations when it comes to the ingredients in skincare & makeup. I love using clean beauty because I know it is made without harmful ingredients and is overall much safer to use!
Q: Tell us about a skincare secret you wouldn't mind sharing with us.
A: Double cleanse every day - even if you haven't worn makeup! I didn't learn this until recently and I'm so glad I did. You should double cleanse no matter what because you need to make sure that you remove your SPF and any general build-up from the day (your face is exposed to A LOT!) before properly doing your second cleanse.
Q: How do you incorporate facial oil in your skincare routine?
A: I am a biggg fan of facial oils! I love using them with my gua sha - so relaxing and really helps the product sink in. Serums/Oils are always my favorite part of my routine!
Q: If you could do one good thing today without any conditions, what would it be and why?
A: I am writing this on June 19th, 2020. If I could do anything at this moment, I would make this day a federal holiday. This day in 1865, all slaves were declared free in the United States. Citizens should be encouraged to use this day to reflect on the state of the country and re-evaluate how they can make their communities and businesses a welcoming space for BIPOC.
Q: What's your favorite quote to live by?
A: Everything happens for a reason
