Health and wellness influencers always seem to know life’s secrets. To help us get a glimpse of their everyday lives, Geri Hirsch of Because I’m Addicted shares to THE/THIRTY what is always in her bag and how those items help her live better:
1. Copper Water Bottle
The number one rule: hydrate, hydrate, hydrate. Every health-conscious individual knows that it is essential for a thriving body and glowing face. Hirsch takes it a step further, revealing that aside from having her own water bottle, she also uses Alkaline H20, which gets rid of the chemicals found in a lot of tap and even bottled water.
2. Clean Wipes
Having clean wipes makes you ready for any situation; you can use them to clean stains, spills, and if they are gentle enough, you may also use them on your face.
3. Nontoxic Deodorant
This type of deodorant may not last as long as the aluminum-heavy options, but it is good to know that they are gentler on the skin. Hirsch carries around a travel-size deodorant that is very easy to use.
4. Facial Spray
Ever wanted skin that stays fresh the entire day? A facial spray is key to a complexion that’s constantly dewy and glowing. Hirsch uses the Herbivore Rose Spray ($32), which she says doubles as a fragrance as well.
5. Lavender Essential Oil
In a heavily populated city like Metro Manila, things such as traffic may contribute to one’s stress levels. However, it is reported that dabbing lavender oil on your temples helps you stay relaxed, helping you prep for work with its calming effects.
6. Healthy Snacks
Of course, snacking cannot be avoided. Since living well requires smarter choices in terms of food, it helps to always have something to snack on in your purse. Rather than reaching for a sugary candy bar, there are many healthy alternatives you can have, from a variety of nuts, dried fruit, and dark chocolate.
