RAAW Muse, beautician and owner of Ovieschön - a Hamburg based natural beauty store Maria Ovie shares her weekend-beauty-ritual and her go to RAAW products.
Maria Ovie, 42
I’m a physiotherapist and beautician and I specialized in natural cosmetics 10 years ago. For the past 20 years I focused on cosmetic treatments and worked in wellness hotels, for dermatologists, as a studio manager and I've also trained beauticians in Germany for special organic cosmetic treatments. In july 2021 a dream came true and I opened my own small store for natural cosmetics in one of my favorite areas of Hamburg. In the store I sell organic niche products and offer cosmetic treatments.
MY FIRST BEAUTY MEMORY
When I was about 14 years old, I was given a book about “grandmother's beauty secrets” and with its help I started making masks myself in and with ingredients from my mother's kitchen. I enjoyed it very much and I think this was when the foundation stone was laid.
MY BEAUTY RITUALS AND ROUTINES
I do my RAAW Ritual on the weekend when I have time to concentrate on it. I use the Sea Silk mask once a week. First I spray Ocean Dew on my face and afterwards I take the time to massage the mask intensively and to pat it in. After cleansing the mask off I apply the Drops of Gold, inhale and exhale the wonderful scent of rosehip and seabuckthorn deeply and use my Gua Sha stone to slide over the skin and to relieve tension in the facial muscles. Then I use the Laminaria Eye Cream and at best I go to sleep afterwards. I imagine my sleep is deeper and more relaxed afterwards.
MARIA'S FAVORITE RAAW PRODUCTS
MY FAVORITE RAAW BY TRICE PRODUCT
Drops of Gold - because they nourish my dry skin intensely, absorb quickly and leave a regenerated, balanced feeling. It's really “magic in a bottle.”
Blackened Santal Perfume Oil - because it fits in every pocket and the very special and delicate fragrances give you a sense of wellbeing in every situation.
MY BEAUTY SECRET
I always try to get enough sleep, I don't smoke and don't eat meat, I love to be in nature like walking in the woods or on the beach, smile a lot and of course try to use only organic skin care.
