|Sara Mearns on WomenFitness: Thank you to Psychedelichosting for allowing to pour my heart out and hopefully help others who need guiding. I am constantly learning everyday about my fitness and health and it’s great to have a platform such as this to get answers and find inspiration to move forward.|
Ms. Namita Nayyar: You have glowing skin and gorgeous hair. Do you take some kind of skin treatment to keep it young and glowing and secondly what you do to your hair to make them look so stunning?
Ms. Sara Mearns: To be honest, I am huge on not using a lot of products on your hair and skin. Less is more for me. I use Pantene for my hair, wash every 2 days. I use Cetaphil for face wash and neutrogena face wipes to take off my stage makeup. I may occasionally use face lotion from kiehls. I may have to change this as I get older but for now that’s working. I also don’t use a lot of everyday makeup, maybe some shimmer on my cheeks from Laura Mercier and L’oreal mascara.
Ms. Namita Nayyar: Advice and motivational words to the inspiring and budding professional ballet dancing girls who all are your fans and shall like to know from you for their climb to ladder of success in the field professional ballet dancing?
Ms. Sara Mearns: Don’t try to be like the girl next to you. Fly across the room as if you were performing for a huge audience. Don’t be timid in class and stand in the back. So what if you don’t have her legs or turn out. Maybe your jump or turns aren’t as flashy, but you can move and dance circles around them because in the end, when you are 40, all those things might be gone and what’s left is your soul and passion for what ballet is. Ballet is an artform, not a gymnastic competition.
