Welcome to Wellness Confidential, our quick-fire interview series where we ask hard-hitting (okay, entertaining) wellness questions, lightning round-style.
This week we’re quizzing Tiffany Masterson, the founder of Drunk Elephant, a natural beauty line whose cheeky name refers to elephants in the wild getting “drunk” on marula oil, an ingredient used throughout the popular line. And her focus on eliminating toxins—there are none in her products—has started to spill over into the rest of her life, she tells us.
Most people don’t know this about me
I wanted to be a backup dancer for Janet Jackson, but it didn’t work out.
The one place I’d never wear yoga pants
In the shower.
The workout I’m currently obsessed with
I’m into the Arc trainer. I can increase the resistance when I don’t have time to lift weights, which is often these days.
The one wellness trend you’ll never see me try
The one song that I’ve been playing on repeat
Bieber’s “Love Yourself.” I know, I’m a little old to be a Belieber, as my children continue to point out to me, but I can’t help it.
If sugar was a superfood, my diet would consist of
Mini Reese’s peanut butter cups…the tiny ones.
If I were a fruit or vegetable, I’d be
Maybe I’d be some spinach. Very healthy, green (naive)—and kids don’t always like me because I’m no-nonsense.
The one beauty product that I’m always replenishing
One way I’ve given back that I’m proud of
I try to teach my children to go out into the world and be kind. It’s the most underrated value in our society.
My mantra of the moment
“Life’s too short for toxic people.” Being healthy is more than just eating right and using non-toxic skin care. I’ve noticed that as I’m getting older, I can more easily recognize toxic relationships and end them without fear of regret.
I firmly believe that a woman can never have too many
True friends and boots.
