EP17: "Wellness is Beauty" Cindy DiPrima
Known for her intelligent and elevated approach to style, Cindy has contributed to Harper’s Bazaar, Domino, and Town & Country among other publications and ad campaigns. As two style-obsessed friends, she and Kerrilynn Pamer dreamed of building a store that was as inspiring as it was pure in it’s mission.
While sitting with Cindy you can’t help but notice her deep and wise glow. During this insightful chat she shares how their common love for cooking, elevated entertaining and passion for wellness guided her and Kerrilynn to birth their ever inspiring brand. These women have not only defined what we know as “clean beauty”, they’ve brought to light to their community (and the world!) that what we put on our bodies is as important - and of substance - as we what put in it.
For the full experience please listen to my interview with Kerrilynn.
Cindy what are your "keep my sanity"’ essentials?
Green juice. Following a plant-based and food combining diet. Running. Yoga. Phone-free time with my kids (still working on this one! the camera is my weakness!). Cooking for family and friends
What’s your favorite workout or form of movement?
Yoga is really my go-to. I’ve done lots of types and am now in a phase of loving hot yoga. The heat and sweat are both so therapeutic and really keep me well and my body has never been stronger. I don’t practice Bikram but go to a looser style class at Modo.
I also love running and love that this is something I can do with my husband. I’m not fast or distance driven. I just really like the workout.
What is your non-negotiable self care ritual or tool?
Gravity colonics with Gil Jacobs in NYC.
What is the best beauty / health / wellness advise a parent or loved one has ever given you?
My parents are and were healthy in a very mainstream sort of way, not radical and very respectful of the advice of doctors and Western medicine in general. I veer more to the left of that! But I am very grateful that my parents always questioned the over-use of antibiotics. I was raised not to take them unless absolutely necessary. THAT is advice for the ages.
A simple beauty ritual / recipe / tonic you’d like to share with listeners.
This is a great way to end the day and promotes deep, easy sleep and restoration:
1/2 teaspoon CAP Beauty’s The 10PM
1 to 2 teaspoons CAP’s The Coconut Butter (or more to taste! It’s crazy delicious.)
1 tablespoon Dandy Blend (optional)
6 ounces hot water
Splash of homemade nut, seed or oat milk
Put all ingredients in a blender and run on high until mixed and frothy. Or put all ingredients your favorite mug and mix with an aero latte.
