We sat down to chat with one of our Aloette Influencers, Aline Lyra, for a conversation about self care, growth, and confidence. Keep reading more to find out how she’s been able to unlock her best self within Aloette.
What does beauty mean to you?
To me beauty means being happy, feeling comfortable and confident in your own skin. Being your true, free self and embracing your imperfections.
What are your top three self care rituals?
Taking care of my skin is one of my biggest self care rituals – it is my time to pamper myself and treat my skin. It helps me unwind and reflect on my day.
Reading is another self-care ritual that I made sure is a part of my routine daily. I’m a reader, and promote literacy to children so naturally books are a big part of my life. I always make sure to give myself at least 15 minutes of reading time (whether it is reading a physical book or listening to an audiobook).
Learning to say no is another skill I’ve been prioritizing when practicing self care. I used to say yes to everything, which often left me stressed, overwhelmed and in a rush mode because I added too much to my plate. Now I pick and choose what I want to do, and always make sure that it is something I enjoy and want to be a part of. This has helped me slow down and pay attention to my own needs.
How did you find Aloette?
I learned of Aloette back in January, when I was looking for a new skin care and make up company to transition to. My sponsor at the time had just joined Aloette and introduced me to the opportunity, and I couldn’t refuse it.
How has Aloette helped you evolve in life?
Aloette has given me the tools that I needed to continue to practice self-care and make sure that I am making myself a priority. The products have helped my skin care routine be more enjoyable while the Aloette culture has given me the support and empowerment to build my confidence and become the best version of me.
What Aloette products help you feel like your best self?
Restorative Enzyme Peel is my go to product for skin care! It’s an easy product to add to my skin care routine and self-care ritual. Not only can I use it on my face, but it has helped with keeping my eczema more in control. Being a busy mom and woman, exfoliating can often be forgotten but with Enzyme Peel I’m able to add it to my day without taking too much of my time. It’s so satisfying to see the results right away – soft and glowing skin within minutes! The Golden Hour Palette is a favorite at my house! Both my daughter and I love using it on a day to day basis. I love how I have everything I need in one compact to make simple or more dramatic makeup looks for anytime of day.
What would you say is the best advice you could give someone who is on the dance about joining Aloette?
Just do it! Aloette not only has amazing products to elevate your skin care routine, but also has an incredible culture that will support and empower you. Being a multi business owner, I love that Aloette does not make me choose what to focus on. Having the flexibility to work the business at whichever level I want (influencer, part time or full time) is one of the best things I love about Aloette.
What are some ways that you keep yourself feeling confident?
Having a positive mindset and not falling for the comparison trap by lifting myself up (with lots of self talk!) and focusing on my uniqueness and strength. I also surround myself with positive people who have the same mindset and thrive on empowering others. While now I feel more confident with my natural beauty, I do love a good lipstick and accessory that helps highlight my features and give me an extra boost of confidence!
