Currently in beauty there is a lean towards embracing natural beauty, not altering or disturbing it, but being mindful of the present moment and unafraid of time passing us by in order to create a balanced holistic approach to ageing gracefully.

This is a focus L’Occitane en Provence knows well. Having lived this ethos for the past 40 years, it’s no surprise the brand has finally chosen a first ever international beauty ambassador and face of its Immortelle Precious and Divine skincare ranges in the form of someone living this out this ethos beautifully.

41-year-old, author of cookbook A kitchen in France and successful culinary blog “Manger” Mimi Thorisson has led an inspiring life to say the least, growing up between Hong Kong, Paris and London and then deciding to leave it all to settle in the Médoc region of France where she lives her unique life to the full with her seven children (she’s currently expecting her eighth) and lots of dogs.

Striking a beautiful balance between motherhood, running a successful blog and keeping alive her passion and love for food and people, Mimi definitely reminds us to seek the beauty in the freedom of creating a path you choose to live. She carves out her destiny as she pleases, allowing nothing to hold her back.

“Naturalness is what is most important to us. A taste for discovery and adventure will always make you feel alive, true to yourself, free,” Mimi has said.
