Ara'kai Bathroom Stories with Yulianna Sardar-August

Yulianna Sardar-August is a model, mother and fellow Copenhagener (is that a word?) whose skin care is part of her self care and with skin that looks glowing and at ease. So, we asked - with a job like hers - what does she do to take such good care?


How does your morning and night-time rituals differ when it comes to self- and skin care?
I always take care of myself from head to toe, but night-time rituals sometimes include taking a bath with aroma oils and salt, while Bodha incense burns.

What has been a product or self care ritual that has been a true game changer for you?
It’s definitely Josh Rosebrook vital balm cream in blend with Oio Lab oil - “The future is bright”. It’s doing a fantastic job for my skin.

What criteria do you use, what do you value most and who do you turn to for advice when choosing a skin care product?
My main criteria is that it works and makes my skin feel and look good ! Of course I aim for clean, sustainable and organic products as much as possible. Some of the people I listen the most to about skincare are the ladies of Ara’kai. It’s amazing to know people who can advise products and see exactly what you need.

When do you feel the most beautiful?
When I’m sun kissed and tanned. Perfect combo is to also have sun dried hair after swimming in a salty ocean.

If you could go back in time and give yourself a piece of advice around wellbeing and beauty - what would it be?
Use the least amount of products as possible and listen to your inner self.

Complete the sentence; My bathroom is …
My safe space. I usually call it “My room”.
