Johannita Eksteen on sunblock, smiles and self confidence

This Women’s Month we’re recognising some of the stunning women we admire. One such woman is Johannita Eksteen, founder and owner of Funky Ouma, a range of natural braai and cooking salts and spices.

She shared some of her thoughts around beauty with us.

What does beauty mean to you?
When you can be yourself, love yourself and be confident. And just being natural and having good posture. 

What makes you feel beautiful?
Big earrings, red lips, and hanging out with my girlfriends.

How do you spoil yourself?
Meeting with the girls, eating good food, drinking local wine and just laughing!

Who is the most beautiful woman to you, and why?
Tough one. I know so many beauts. Christi Panagio is a natural beauty by simply being herself. And she’s always smiling.

If you could give your 18-year old self beauty advice, what would it be?
Don’t ever touch a pimple, it really leaves marks. Ice it! Use natural beauty products. 

What’s the most important thing you have come to understand about beauty in the last ten years?
SUNBLOCK! Sunblock and sunblock.

What about womanhood will you be celebrating this Women’s Month?
The balancing of life. Being a mother, having your own business, being an understanding wife, being yourself and being human – and loving all of this crazyness!
