Esther Ijewere is an author, entrepreneur, activist and initiator of Walk Against Rape. In this encounter with Yetunde Oladeinde, she talks about the things she does to look good.

WHAT exactly is the secret of looking good and Ijewere takes you into her world.

“The first thing is peace of mind, then drinking, water and minding your business. It starts from the inside. You can use the best beauty regimen in the world, but without inner peace, it won’t show”.

From having inner peace, joy and satisfaction, the discussion moves on to look at some homemade remedies that work for her.

“I exfoliate twice in a month; I use my cleansers morning and night. I also have a special combination of frankincense oil, sweet almond oil and coconut oil which I use for my face”.

She continued: “I also use a rose quartz facial roller that keeps the glow. For my body, I use my body cream and olive oil”.

Getting support from professionals at the Spa has also been very helpful. “I have not visited in a while because of COVID, but prior, I did once in 6 months”.

Ijewere goes on to talk about the other things she does to pamper her skin.” I drink a lot of water, chamomile and mugwort tea plus exercise”.

Diet? She drops a surprise here. “I am a foodie. I eat almost anything, but I stay away from sweet and fatty foods. As long as a food is healthy, count me in”.

For Ijewere, style is a reflection of our uniqueness. “The conscious effort of appearing good”. There are however a number of things that she would not do in the name of fashion. “I won’t wear any dress with slits exposing my private area, that’s totally off limit for me personally. I respect people’s definition of style but I just can’t find myself wearing that”.

Now you want to know about her favourite products and best makeup artiste and she replied this way: “I have none. I can’t make up to save myself, those close to me know that, except for rare occasions or photoshoots. I’m a big fan of my natural face. However, I acknowledge and appreciate every makeup artist out there making women look good”.

It’s a big yes, when it comes to exercise routine. “Yes, 10 push-ups in the morning and 5 after using the washroom”.

Ijewere also takes you into her closet talking about the items that she treasures most. “My Aretha Franklin customized t-shirt is my most treasured outfit right now. It costed me a little extra but I intentionally bought it after watching her documentary. Her story and all she suffered, and the marriage that changed the trajectory of her life, and how she rose like a Phoenix against all odds. It resonates with me, and some of my lived experiences”.

She added: “A beautiful dress I wore for my birthday recently is another item I treasure. It’s by an amazing designer called House of Ajoke. I named the dress “Enlarge my coast” because of its boubou vibe”.
