After giving birth to my daughter, I was faced with the same troubled skin I had when I was an actress wearing heavy makeup for 15 hours a day. The inspiration for YENSA came from my mother, who followed a 2000 year old practice, rooted in Chinese Medicine. “Zuo Zue Zi,” also known as “Sitting the Month,” is when a new mother “sits out” for the month after childbirth to rest and heal her body by integrating Superfoods into her daily routine.
Inspired by Superfood traditions and Asian rituals, this lifestyle was lived by generations of women in my family and it restored my complexion and confidence. My skin glowed from the inside out and I knew I had to share this with women everywhere.
At YENSA, we work with top chemists from Korea, France, Los Angeles and beyond to create clean, luxurious products that are steeped in Superfood Science and Asian Rituals for a modern, diverse world.
I hope we inspire you to face the world with confidence and thank you for letting me share the Superfood Glow with you!
