Coinciding with VOGUE FASHION’S NIGHT OUT 2015, the fashion event held in the Omotesando, Aoyama, and Harajuku area, organic beauty brand SHIGETA partnered with INTERSECT BY LEXUS for a talk featuring special guest Jessica Michibata.
At the start of the event, the host explained how the LEXUS-SHIGETA partnership came about. “As a brand, SHIGETA extracts beauty from a healthy, comfortable everyday life. This matches a lot with what LEXUS is doing.”
Jessica Michibata, a fan of SHIGETA’s products, was then welcomed onto the stage to discuss her lifestyle and beauty secrets.
The first question was about food: “Jessica, do you take care of what you eat?”
“I try to eat what my body craves,” the model explained. “But I also try to choose healthy options, such as seasonal vegetables and fresh food.”
As the host pointed out, the upstairs Bistro at INTERSECT BY LEXUS is currently offering a unique “super organic vegetables” dish, created out of exactly the same philosophy of healthy, seasonal food.
Michibata also enjoys yoga and a range of sports, including competitive triathlons. But how does she take care of her body after doing exercise?
“The day after I run a marathon I feel pretty tired, but I always then take a hot bath. I created some bath salts with SHIGETA. The EARTH bath salts are really effective at healing fatigue.”
What does she do on a daily basis to look after her body?
“Moisturizing is really important. But more important still is what goes on inside you. I use my favorite aromas, like rose or jasmine or cananga, to relax and heal my body. It helps to loosen my neck and give me a natural smile. This all connects to enhancing your beauty.”
And why does she love organic beauty products so much?
“Organic and natural things are powerful. They feel like they have a genuine effect on the body. They’re gentle on the skin and the way they are made is also environmentally friendly. I always want to choose something that feels good, so I use natural and organic products.”
“No matter how busy I am, I always make time to light some candles and relax, take a bath rather than a shower, and just do something for myself. This is essential to let your inner beauty shine,” said Michibata.
