Welcome to our brand-new Sunday series.
As we all navigate life through these strange and uncertain times, we know you need more authentic content from us than ever before.

We’ve teamed up with a whole host of self-care ICONS to discuss the big issues that are close to their hearts.
Their stories are woven together with hope for the future and include practical ways to harness self-love, confidence and positivity, even on the days that feel extra tough.

Tune in to our Instagram stories every Sunday for the full takeover.

Trigger Warning: Anxiety

ICONIC Babe Lo Dias is a celebrity makeup artist and social media influencer. She is totally relatable and never takes herself too seriously, and always shares her life #unfiltered.

We talked to Lo about life as a working makeup artist in the midst of a pandemic and why she chooses self-love over worry.

Lo Dias

1. How has your work as a makeup artist been affected by COVID-19?

My work has been affected massively. I wasn’t able to work for nearly 5 months... every time there has been an announcement from the government, I just have to hold my breath and hope my work isn’t stopped again.

2. How has the change in workflow affected your mental health?

It has massively affected my mental health. I went from working nonstop - to nothing. I found it really, really difficult to pick myself up each day.

3. How did you deal with these distressing factors?

I deal with stress and anxiety by “brain dumping”. I grab a notebook and just write down everything I am thinking and feeling. I find I can work out whatever is stressing me out by writing it all down. I always finish this process by writing a pep talk to myself- it really does help.

4. What do you do on a day when your anxiety feels on top of you?

When I am in my deepest depths of anxiety, the best remedy has been my dog Baloo. He relies on me, so every day I have to wake up and get out of bed and take him outside. That sense of purpose each day paired with getting outside to the fresh air really helps my anxieties. He needs me and loves me unconditionally.

5. What does self-care mean to you?

Self-care to me means putting your mental well-being before anyone and anything else!

6. Mantras / motivational quotes?

Well, we’ll see what happens

&

Roll with the punches.


It’s never been more important to ASK FOR HELP if you feel you need it. Don’t suffer alone!
