Turmeric masks, herbal tea and ditching the 9-5, with Anna Mitsios of Edible Beauty
What does 'inner beauty' mean to you?
I truly believe that beauty really does come from within and encourage women to not let their skincare products and make up define their beauty. Having said that, I am also a believer that our inner beauty, energy, skin and personality is a direct reflection of what we put both in it and on it. We are what we eat and think as the saying goes. The Edible Beauty Australia product range epitomises purity, luxury as well as the wellbeing and longevity of the skin, body and mind.
Have you always been an entrepreneur? How has your journey brought you to where you are today?
You could definitely say this. I have been creative from quite a young age with respect to health and beauty products. I have dabbled in creating detox kits, herbal elixirs and even jewellery. I have finally found my passion though in Edible Beauty!
What are some of your me-time rituals?
One of my favourite me-time rituals is creating a beauty mask with either turmeric or saffron and lying down with a cup of tea in hand. I am also a firm believer in getting back to nature and love to escape to quiet ocean-side settings when things get overwhelming. The water seems to have a very powerful ability to clam and restore.
Why did you decide to create a range of teas and what is the best thing about incorporating herbal teas into daily life?
My desire to include teas in my beauty range is a reflection of my belief in “Inside Out” Beauty. The blends are all based on the naturopathic herbal formulas I would provide to my clients to cleanse, hydrate and improve their energy, skin and provide hormone balance. I have ensured that the teas are palatable so that you do not even notice how powerful they actually are. This makes it so easy to take care of your beauty routine inside and out.
What do you love most about your lifestyle and the career you have created for yourself?
I love being able to touch the lives of so many women, assisting them in easily transforming their skin and overall vitality. It is so fulfilling witnessing the radiance and improved confidence which comes from making a few simple changes to one’s beauty routine. I also absolutely love being able to travel spreading the word on Edible Beauty and having the flexibility to work outside of a typical office environment.
