Weleda is not about us; it’s about you—it’s about “we.” With that in mind, it seemed only natural to look for our next we magazine cover model from among all of you. The model for our last issue, Samira, was a friend of Marko’s, our COO. She was born in Iran (home of the pomegranate). She now lives in Jersey City, NJ, and enjoys eating pomegranates with her husband. With her timeless beauty and natural radiance, she was the perfect person for that cover.
The search is now on for the face of our spring 2010 issue! Our “You Could Be we” contest launched on December 1, and we’ve already received so many wonderful entries that we can’t help but share a few with you here.
There is Lourine from Tallahassee, FL, pictured happy and confidently—cowgirl hat and all. “Natural beauty shines through from within when the body, mind and spirit are in perfect balance,” she wrote in her letter to us. “We achieve this by healthy choices and, in turn, our happiness radiates and glows.” We also heard from Shannon of Austin, TX, a busy author and mother of three, who said she still finds the time to take care of her skin and well-being. “I know that I cannot nurture others if I am not nurtured myself!” she says. “I am committed to living a mindful and conscious life that is close to nature. Weleda helps me to do this in a way which nourishes both my skin and psyche!”
Last but not least, there’s Silvia from Porterville, CA, who said she started having hormonally influenced problems with her skin after she had her thyroid removed because of cancer. She writes: “I read about your company in a book and gave it a shot. I ordered samples to try the products, and my skin just fell in love with all of the Wild Rose products! I feel like a cover model every day now. My skin looks great—my inside beauty matches the outside. So thank you for helping me and my skin feel good!”
