LISTEN ON: APPLE PODCASTS | SPOTIFY
Denise Vasi has always refused to be put in a box. As a highly successful model, actress, and the founder of Maed, an inclusive wellness community, she has continuously sought to carve out a space that allows her to shine fully.
Motherhood flipped a switch for Denise, and she began exploring – and sharing – her experience as she sought to detox her skin, body, and surroundings while being an inspirational and intentional mother to her daughter and son. Her content struck a chord with her ever-evolving, online community, and Maed was launched (from her bathroom) in 2018.
She reveals the secrets to self-care and mindful beauty that she inherited from her grandmother and how she creates time for herself, despite a jam-packed schedule. Plus: how she kicked dietary devils from her household and why her journey to radical self-acceptance is the most beautiful thing of all.
Growing up as a model, Denise focused her relationship with her body on viewing it as a tool for her career, and didn't obsess with changing it
Becoming a mom helped motivate Denise to reevaluate what she was putting in her body and on her body, and she became passionate about clean living
Each day Denise makes sure she has quality time with her kids, but also prioritizes work on Maed and self care
Gua sha is a facial massage tool that Denise loves and recommends, it can release facial muscles and tension
When transitioning to clean beauty, look at the brand holistically, pick a product to start with and slowly transition products one by one
When feeding her kids, Denise like to have a conversation with them about how they want to feel and helps them make informed decisions and tune into what their bodies want
