Name: Gabriel Diaz
Daily Uniform: I like my clothes to be simple, sustainable, and chic. So, my daily uniform is usually head to toe Eileen Fisher.
AM Ritual: I start my day with a big glass of water, quick face wash, apply SPF, then I go to Pilates. After class I get an oat matcha latte for my walk home. When I get home, I take a 115-degree steam shower, then I do my skin: gentle cleanser, 5-minute NuFACE microcurrent treatment, Agent Nateur holi (trinity), LaCrème Beaute Venom Cream, and Alastin Sunscreen.
PM wind down: First, I double cleanse with Agent Nateur lactic acid duo. I’m a steam shower person, so I take a detoxifying 115-degree steam shower for 15 minutes. After my steam, when my skin is still a little wet, I apply Agent Nateur holi (body). I apply Agent Nateur holi (water) before I use my Omnilux led mask for 10 mins to boost collagen production and skin plumping. Lastly, I apply Alastin serum/retinol, LaCrème Beaute Bee Venom, followed by a facial massage with my ReFa platinum coated roller to release facial tension.
Something that helps you stay in a positive mindset: Being positive is honestly not something I have ever put too much emphasis on. If I do get in a bad mood, I generally try not to embrace it and let it go. I tend to default on positivity, and I naturally don’t let things overwhelm me.
A life changing realization that you’ve had: Well 10 years ago I became “California sober” (I don’t drink alcohol but love CBD), so that I can grow, attain my goals, and focus more on the present. I also grew to appreciate the really good things in my life, like my supportive partner Jonathan, friends, family and many spiritual blessings.
Favorite wellness book: Intuitive Fasting by Dr. Will Cole.
Go-to stress remedy: Without a doubt it’s my nightly steam and my multi step skincare ritual. They’re both incredibly grounding and luxurious. It’s my daily guilt free escape, that brings my focus into the moment while fostering calm and serenity.
Your ultimate indulgence: This might sound really cliché, but I really love caviar! I generally am pretty relaxed and casual when it comes to dining but there is something about opening a tin of Sterling or Petrossian Caviar that really sets the mood.
Three things you’re grateful for: I’m so grateful for my health, my wonderful partner Jonathan, and my fabulous friends who keep me grounded.
Must-have Agent Nateur product: My must-have for years has been the holi (trinity). The formulas are perfect for my sensitive skin, and really evening out my skin tone. My newest must-have is holi (mane) because my hair is growing so much faster, and my skin is radiant.
