Mette Skjærbæk is a former successful model – today she is Creative Director and the woman behind the Danish skincare brand KARMAMEJU.
My name is Mette Skjærbæk – I am from the south of Denmark where I lived until I was 16 – at this time I started travelling the world as a model. 10 years living in metropolises like Milan, Tokyo, London, Paris, and New York gave me a new perspective on life. My passion for natural health grew strong and I found that the “grass was not greener” elsewhere – I returned to Copenhagen in 1999 and founded Karmameju.
I am the mother of two daughters Mila (8) and Felina (15), and I am the Creative Director at Karmameju
I have many! I make “crazy smoothies” in the morning… smoothies full of all good things for the body, mind and skin.
I work, I play, I do reformer, I love being around people. People are the diamonds in life.. friendships makes me smile!
I eat everything, but I try to live within an 80/20 balance… 80% nourishment with a core of body-respect, and 20% unadulterated fun, anything I feel like – and with no guilt.
I sleep min. 7 hours at night, it is so essential for our health, and I love the night so I have to have rules for my sleep, if not I do not sleep enough.
I am fascinated with all that can stimulate our senses, and I love aromatherapy for being such a powerful stimulant for the skin and the mind.
Like mentioned above: 80/20 … However, we know now that happiness is the strongest life-force, so I try to eliminate gulid and “I should” …
I am focused on staying hydrated and breathing well. I believe this is the core of a healthy body and mind.
I have been busy for many years, and I am a high energy person, so one of my missions is slowing down. Do less. Be more present. Every day I sit for 10 min. doing nothing, it is such a challenge for me.. but it is amazing for the nervous system, and I believe we are in a time where we need to say STOP and to rebel against the speed of society. Do less. Be more present.
I “met” Vitaviva years ago, and have used these fine supplements since. I like to take different supplements at different times. I like to boost the body with what I feel it needs at certain times.
As I live a healthy lifestyle it does not give me more energy or less down-days, it just makes me feel good to know that I get enough Omega-3 as an example, as we do not eat fatty fish enough at home. It also makes me feel good to know I stimulate pro-biotic activity in the gut or that I am lessening anti-inflammatory activity with turmeric..
Supplements, skincare, etc is all about trust for me. The people behind the brand, the research and the integrity is KEY! I trust the integrity behind VitaViva and this is why I choose this brand over others. I love that doctors are behind the research, and that everything is tested, trailed and proven for results.
Oh “favorite” is always difficult for me, as I like a lot of things in life… but the supplement I take the most regularly is the WRINKLES AWAY
VITAGLOW has become my favourite product for two good reasons:
1. I can see the difference on my skin now that I take them regularly.
2. I remember taking them because they are packed in small daily dose parcels, which makes it extremely easy.
Well I have always been a water pusher - And on all Karmameju products it says: STAY HYDRATED / DRINK WATER .. but most important for me is our NO BEAUTY WITHOUT TRUTH .. it is very related to KARMA and I believe that we get the most beautiful life from being honest, good people whom take care of each other.. I am so aware that life is short, no matter how long we are here, and the thing I always remind myself is NOW. Life is NOW and we have to make the best of it.
