Meet the Maker: Katonya Breaux of Unsun Cosmetics – Part II: The Maker

How do you start your day?

I start my day with mint tea or coffee and a brisk walk with my dog, Sasha.

Do you have a morning / evening ritual?

In the evenings, I wind down with a book or a bath and clean and moisturize my face and neck. I am typically in bed by 9 when I’m home so that I can get a good night's rest. I don’t do well with little sleep...

What is your daily skincare routine?

My skincare routine is simple - I start with a creamy cleanser, use a CE ferric acid, and then apply Unsun Mineral sunscreen. In the winter, when it's more dry, I use a little moisturizer before applying the sunscreen.

Do you have a daily wellniss routine?

I don’t have a daily wellness routine but I train with a personal boxing trainer at  home on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. I also walk my dog daily. I’m vegan so eating well is very much a part of my daily life.

What is beauty product or tool you can’t live without?

Duh, Sunscreen!

What do you do for R&R when you need to reboot?

I leave! LOL - I try to travel when I’m overwhelmed but if I cannot, I have a massage or a bath with wine.

What are your must-haves when traveling?

I must have a good creamy cleanser, moisturizer and sunscreen when I travel. I have a specific blanket that always goes with me as well as whatever book I’m reading at the time as reading is a constant in my life.

What selfcare advice would you have given yourself 5 years ago?

Five years ago, I would have told myself to keep up some kind of activity constantly... My thighs would now be very grateful.

Do you have any beauty / wellniss advice for our followers?

I encourage women to always wear their sunscreen and stay at least minimally active. There's so much that we should be doing but these two things keep both our face and our mental and physical health in a better state.
