This month at Monnier we decided to adopt the slow living trend, learning to slow down and take some time for ourselves. So this week we asked for advice from renowned self-care expert, Mélanie Huynh, founder ofHolidermie, to guide us on our way to a slower way of life.

A passionate proponent of ethical fashion and clean beauty rituals, Mélanie created Holidermie in 2019. The brand offers French-made products that are clean, vegan-friendly and based on a holistic approach to beauty.

Her ultimate style advice for braving the winter months:

"Right now, I'm loving the full-on loungewear/cosy look as I continue to work from home. And even at home, I wear gorgeous trainers or oversized flat boots with this look. When the weather is really bad, like now, I put on colourful sweaters with 80s prints. It gives me a boost and brightens up my face as well! I team them with denim and cowboy boots or chunky boots. And I'm a fan of accessories like necklaces, chains, scarves, rings… ”

Her brands of the moment: Maison Kitsuné, Paco Rabanne, Isabel Marant.

Her daily self-care routine:

"I get up every morning around 6.30 am. I take my Holidermie food supplements. Then I apply cosmetics and do 5-10 minutes of facial yoga. Then I have a cold juice with adaptogen beauty powder and our Skin Elixir tea. I finish with 30 minutes of yoga or meditation. ​
