One of our favourite self-love and body positivity advocates, beautiful mumma Alex Centomo is a Canadian beauty, fashion, lifestyle influencer.

Welcoming her son Arkie last year, Alex has been super open and honest about her body and mental health journey during pregnancy and postpartum with her million Instagram followers. And they love her for it!

What specific results can you share after using esmi?

I've been using esmi skincare for a few weeks now and have noticed a significant difference in the texture and quality of my skin!

Going through pregnancy and postpartum comes with a lot of hormone changes, and mix that in with the crazy changes in weather here in Montreal, my skin was all over the place.

I finally feel like I'm at a place of balance and I'm super happy with the results!

What would you say to somebody on the fence about trying esmi?

Go for it!

I love how they have so many different products that target different skin qualities. You can find something that fits your skin needs perfectly. HUGE bonus that they're vegan!

What esmi product can you not live without?

Definitely the Uncomplicated Cleanser with Anti-Redness!

I suffer from rosacea and this product has really helped with that a lot. It's also not drying which I really like now that my skin is noticeably aging!

What are some ways that you practice self-care in such a busy, demanding world?

I take time every day to relax all my senses.

Wearing comfortable clothing, listening to or watching something soothing, tasting something enjoyable, and smelling either a calming candle or essential oil!

What do you believe will be the biggest challenge for the generation of women behind you?

I feel like the challenges that social media and technology bring will be tough for the next generation of women.

I grew up in the 90s without any technology other than TV and that was limited to weekends. I feel like women now deal with a lot online.

Everything is so quick and so easily at our fingertips, it's a blessing and a curse.

A blessing because we can make anything of ourselves and really push to achieve goals that didn't exist for women a few years ago. But a curse because it's easier to compare ourselves and absorb almost too much information.
