Meet Agent Woman, Amanda Charchian.
Name: Amanda Charchian
Daily uniform: It’s the height of summer, so Isa Boulder swimsuits, men’s Prada button-down shirts, Bottega Veneta sunglasses, and Proenza Schouler X Birkenstock sandals.
AM ritual: Meditate with the Insight app, and green juice and coffee.
Then for my skin, I apply the Tata Harper Cleanser, Biologique Recherche P50 toner, Skinceuticals C E Ferulic Serum, La Mer sunscreen, Laura Mercier SPF tinted moisturizer, and my Apivita tinted lip balm. I finish with Agent Nateur holi (body) ageless body serum.
PM wind down: Documentaries, cuddles, and natural wine. When it comes to my skin, I use the Moon Juice cleanser, Agent Nateur holi (water), Biologique Recherche Amniotique Serum or Shani Darden Retinol Reform, Unica cream from Palmea (an amazing new natural Italian brand), and Kérastase night serum for my hair.
Feel-good song: For summer: Sea, Sex, and Sun by Serge Gainsbourg.
A mistake you’ve learned from: Acting on my emotions as if they were facts.
To your younger self: Let go and don’t hold on to situations and people that don’t serve you! Wasted time can’t be healed while a broken heart can.
A wellness expert who has significantly helped you: Esther Perel
Favorite wellness/beauty book: In the FLO by Alisa Vitti.
Go-to stress remedy: The sea, preferably the Mediterranean.
Supplements you can’t live without: Ashwagandha, Serenol by Bonafide (made from Bees in Germany to regulate hormones), Syntol AMD probiotics, Serenagen by Metagenics to relieve stress, Rhodiola, and Magnesium.
Three things you’re really into right now: I’m in Italy at the moment, so finding local biological natural wines in every town, a book called the Unfinished Palazzo which is about Marchesa Casati, Doris Castlerosse, and Peggy Guggenheim, three incredibly interesting independent women who all lived in the same palazzo in Venice which is now the Peggy Guggenheim museum, and learning Italian!
