Meet Sandy Thinnes, our new beauty ambassador who is the founder of The Beauty Flow Method and professional makeup artist with 20 years of experience. I’m passionate about helping women discover their beauty inside and out through this transformative program. I created The Beauty FLOW Method to bring together years of tried-and-true teachings, backed by neuroscience, mindfulness, and nutrition.

How did you become a holistic beauty and wellness coach?

My journey started with almost 20 years of working in the beauty industry. I became hyper-aware that people were spending tons of money on cosmetic products— yet still not feeling happy in their skin, or nourishing their bodies properly to glow naturally. 

It was clear to me that women were using beauty products, treatments, and services to heal internal conditions with external means. 

In 2019, I became relentless to fill this major gap in the beauty industry. I turned my industry knowledge + passion for makeup artistry into my mission: To give women the strategies to take control of their personal relationship with beauty, health, and self-empowerment. 

After earning certifications as an Integrative Nutrition Health Coach and a Mindset Coach, I founded Beauty FLOW to help women learn how to look vibrant, live healthier, and feel happier in their skin.

What is holistic beauty?

I define it as improving skin function through a whole-body, integrative approach. In other words, bringing awareness to the interconnectedness of nutrition + lifestyle, mindset + sacred self-connection, and conscious beauty practices and how they work together to improve the way the skin + body looks and performs. 

Why do you need a holistic beauty and wellness approach?

Put simply, you can spackle over the cracks of a building all you want, but if there is larger damage to the foundation of that building, then the spackle will have little effectiveness. 

The human body was built to restore, repair, and rejuvenate. [The same goes for the converse.] If you can build an environment where your body and skin thrive, then the outcome is longer-lasting as you age. Additionally, you will require less trial and error with topical beauty products. 

How does nutrition fall into the holistic beauty approach?

Recent studies have confirmed that your interior life is deeply connected to your external presence. The foods you eat hold different codes that are expressed in your body that ultimately impact how your skin (and brain) functions. We call this the gut-brain-skin axis. 

In this axis lives the microbiome, the control center of skin function. When you choose the foods you eat, you are actually choosing to support the microbiome or not. The stronger your microbiome health, the better your skin quality. 

What interested you in Svete Wellness and our products?

I was attracted by the comprehensive and mindful selection of clinically proven beauty-enhancing ingredients. The products are the best solution for anyone with a quick-paced schedule to get the full scope of quality nutrients to support their skin function and overall well-being. 

What are some of your top recommendations for someone who wants to get started with holistic beauty?

The first thing you can do is to try not to get so caught up in human doing that you forget to be a human being. Take small moments during the day to connect back to being a human. It can look like this: 

  • Prepare nutrient-dense, whole-food meals and add a all-in-one beauty supplement like Beauty Fusion to support your skin function and overall health. 
  • Take frequent brain breaks from all stimulants to help regulate those beauty-busting stress hormones. Think meditation, breathwork, or walking in nature. 
  • Make time for play so that you nourish your soul. My favorite forms of ‘play’ are spending time with my community, dancing, laughing, and scheduling a novel experience. 

Next, introduce mindfulness into your beauty practices. For example:

  • Engage in energy-shifting beauty rituals. They are rituals meant to be performed slowly and with intention as gua sha, dry brushing, facial fitness, sauna, or red light therapy.
  • Ask yourself if you are doing something in your beauty routine because it feels good or if you are trying to change something you don’t like. Beauty is responsive to your energy. 
  • Be in the ceremony with yourself. I like to use my nighttime skincare routine as a ritual to ‘wash off the day’ and give appreciation to myself + my skin. I go slow and pay attention to the feeling of the water on my skin. It’s beyond calming. 

What is one piece of advice you wish you could share with all women?

When you heal your internal conditions, your external appearance thrives. If you want next-level beauty results, start by getting your inner beauty routine on lock.
