Alicia Brunton started Delia Organics with the idea to enhance natural beauty & get skin to the highest form of health it can be. The company cares about the health and wellness of every individual, and they formulated their products to help with all different skin concerns. These truly active products create a positive reaction in skin without irritation or fillers & many see results after their first try!
What’s your favorite part about running Delia Organics?
My favorite part of running Delia Organics is the fact that I am able to do what I love every single day. When I was planning the direction of Delia Organics before I launched, I wanted to make sure it was something that would be beneficial for everyone, which it is! Delia is made for all skin types, unisex and is plant & fruit based formulations! As an Aesthetician in the industry, I am always looking at labels and more aware of what is in the products I am using. I think it is important to know the transparency of ingredient lists, and the willingness of companies to answer all their customers questions.
Of the products you make, which is your favorite?
My personal favorite would have to be the Dose of C Serum! I have noticed significant changes in my skin and my skin’s texture after a few days of using it. It easily glides on the skin and absorbs quite quickly but doesn’t leave my skin sticky or tight. I also love to use it as a makeup base as well before I apply my Beauty Balm!
What is your morning routine? Evening?
My morning routine is Dose of C Cleanser, Dose of C Serum, Dose of C Eye Magnify, Lemon Drop Hydrating Balm. My evening routine is Dose of C Cleanser, Halt and Reverse Masque (3x week) & Restore Treatment Oil.
What 3 tips or tricks can you share for feeling and looking your best?
My #1 tip for looking/feeling your best is: give yourself daily affirmations, and focus on loving each part of you more and more each day! I actually have Post-It Note Affirmations on my bathroom wall that I stare at every day, and make sure to remind myself. I think it is important to love yourself completely from head to toe.
What’s a trend in the wellness/beauty industry you’d like to see grow?
The trend I would love to see grow is more natural beauty! I would love for women to embrace their natural beauty and not hide behind makeup. Natural, glowing skin is beautiful and I think it is important to take care of your skin and invest in skincare over makeup.
We all know healthy beauty starts with what we put in our bodies. What 3 tips can you share about beauty from the inside out?
1. WATER! Water is your best friend! Making sure to drink water will help your body and your skin. So much of how our body functions is about water and if we are not drinking enough, the side effects can be damaging and painful!
2. FRUITS & VEGGIES! Make friends with your fruits and veggies! There is nothing more satisfying than eating the juiciest peach or the ripest banana. Fruits and vegetables have all the necessary nutrients our bodies deserve and the best natural sugars. My secret if I am craving sugar? I have some fruit. Fruit is low calories, leaves a full stomach and is healthy!
3. TEA! Peppermint and Chamomile Tea are my go-to, caffeine-free teas to indulge in before bedtime. Peppermint is great for calming the stomach & mind, and Chamomile is perfect for soothing the body & mind. My secret sleepy time tea!
What’s the hardest or most important life lesson you’ve learned?
Adversity. Adversity has been very present in my life. Instead of letting it defeat me, I have decided to roll with it and let it challenge me. Adversity has allowed me to become even stronger, more determined and I have realized, that nothing ever, is as bad as it seems. Never giving up and fighting for what you want is more important than anything in this life, and that is what makes it all worth it and amazing! There is a positive side to adversity, and you can be your own hero.
