Insider Secrets from Josie Maran

Josie Maran, 35
Chief Eco-officer, Josie Maran Cosmetics

With her supermodel looks and pure approach to beauty, health and wellness, Josie Maran is the poster child for all things natural. a fan of the “good-for-the-body” mantra, Maran couldn’t find a natural color line that possessed sophistication and luxury so she decided to make her own, Josie Maran Cosmetics. “i was told that i couldn’t have high-performance makeup that was safe for the people and the planet. I knew if I was looking for that, other women were too.”

My First Foray Into Color
“Growing up, both of my parents were (and still are) environmentalists, so I learned to love nature and all things that natural beauty comprises. They taught me reverence for nature’s design. My mother never wore makeup and the thought of wearing makeup didn’t even cross my mind until I started modeling. I learned that just a little bit of makeup can go a long way, especially when you wear it the right way and avoid the wrong types of ingredients and chemicals.”

My Take On Aging
“I don’t view aging as a bad thing or something that I’m opposed to, it’s just what happens. I try to make friends with everything about my body and skin and embrace it, including changes and some of the signs that come along with aging.”

My Secret To Staying In Shape
“As much as I hate to admit this, my main form of exercise is chasing after my two small daughters. But, in a broader sense, I eat healthy for the most part—lots of kale, seaweed and protein shakes, but I do have a weakness for pizza—and I drink as much water as physically possible every day, especially if I’m traveling.”

How I Get Perfect Beachy Waves
“My hair really takes a beating when I do photo shoots. To revive it I use Josie Maran Argan Hot Oil Self-Heating Hair Treatment at least once a month and the Argan Oil Hair Serum as often as I can.”
