Pretti5 Mother's Day Special: Generations in Conversation

“I never skip a day of skincare and think it’s a great way to decompress from your day”


In the heart of 29 Palms, California, thrives a vibrant young woman named Saramia. At 21, she juggles the demanding roles of wife, mother, and social media manager. Beneath her infectious energy lies a dedication to self-care, a philosophy that manifests in her unique approach to skincare – a captivating blend of cultural heritage and modern innovation.

Saramia's earliest foray into the world of skincare began at the tender age of 15. "I was about 15 when I really started getting into skincare," she reminisces, "I absolutely loved it since then till now. I never skip a day of it and think it's a great way to decompress from your day." This dedication to self-care, fostered in her youth, continues to be evident in her radiant complexion – a testament to the power of consistent self-love, even in the face of a bustling desert life.

However, Saramia's beauty routine is far from a purely modern concoction. It's a vibrant tapestry woven with the threads of cultural heritage. The practice of guasha, a traditional Chinese facial massage technique, is a legacy passed down from her family. "I guasha my face every day," she explains, "I honestly think it makes a difference in your face. Especially in the morning times if you get puffy!" This ancient practice, passed down through generations, serves as a cornerstone of her beauty philosophy, a reminder of the wisdom embedded in traditional practices.

Pretti5's philosophy of blending ancient Eastern wisdom with modern technological advancements resonates deeply with Saramia. "Honestly, I was the one who showed my mom how to properly have a good skincare routine!".  An enthusiastic adopter of modern beauty advancements, she has become the family's resident skincare guru, playfully educating her mother on the importance of a well-defined skincare regimen. This exchange of knowledge between generations highlights the dynamic nature of beauty rituals, a testament to their constant evolution and adaptation.

Motherhood, however, has brought a new dimension to Saramia's beauty philosophy. "It's not about chasing the latest trends or layering on every product under the sun," she emphasizes. "Instead, it's about prioritizing gentle, safe ingredients, knowing that the well-being of my little one comes first." This shift in focus, a natural consequence of motherhood, highlights the adaptability of beauty routines, their ability to evolve alongside life's changing priorities.

Her skincare journey itself mirrors her growth. "I've definitely widened my routine from 3 products to about 7," she explains. This growth reflects the ever-changing nature of beauty, a concept that transcends static products and routines. It's a testament to the fact that beauty, like life, is a journey of exploration, adaptation, and self-discovery.

But skincare for Saramia goes beyond just products and routines. It's about self-love and confidence. "It's about presenting myself to the world, not just with a flawless face, but with a radiant inner light, nurtured by a commitment to self-care," she says thoughtfully. True beauty, she believes, comes from within, and a well-crafted skincare routine is simply the outward expression of that inner glow.

Speaking of wisdom, Saramia fondly remembers her mother's golden nugget of beauty advice: "Never rub your face after washing it – pat it dry!" A simple yet valuable lesson that resonates through the years, a reminder of the importance of gentle care, passed down from generation to generation.

Looking ahead, Saramia embraces the journey of aging with grace. "Be kind and gentle to yourself," she advises with a warm smile. "Don't fall prey to the hype of every 'viral' product. Get something that truly works for you." This sentiment underscores the importance of personalized beauty routines, ones that cater to individual needs and preferences.

And when it comes to her favorite Pretti5 product, Saramia doesn't hold back. "The Miracle Glow Facial Oil is a desert oasis for my skin!" she declares. It keeps her complexion nourished and radiant, a testament to the power of finding beauty solutions that cater to your unique needs, no matter how demanding life gets.

Saramia's story is a beautiful tapestry woven with threads of tradition, self-discovery, and the ever-evolving world of skincare. It's a reminder that beauty rituals are more than just products; they're a bridge between generations, a celebration of self-love, and a passport to a world of inner and outer radiance.
