BAINA Bathe
Volume 05.
Neada Deters

Our series BAINA Bathe explores the personal connection to one's daily bathing rituals. Uncovering moments where we allow ourselves to go a little deeper, indulge in time with self, and disconnect from the world beyond the bathroom door.

We were immediately drawn to Neada Deters minimalistic lifestyle and her uncompromising skincare range LESSE. Born in Australia and residing in LA, Neada sees bathing as an opportunity to shut off from the outside world and be still in between her busy work-life schedule.
In light of our recent collaboration with LESSE, we sat down with our friend and business owner Neada Deters for Vol 05. of BAINA Bathe. Here, she shares her connection to bathing and daily practices captured behind her own lens
in LA.

"Bathing for me is an opportunity to drown out the noise of the world, to be completely with oneself and realise the beauty in stillness.

I only ever bathe when I have no time limit, so I can completely shut off from the constraints and weight of the world for however long I need."

"I always, always apply the Bioactive Mask before I get in the bath and let it linger on my skin for a long while before wiping it off with a damp cloth. Another favourite beauty tool of mine is the LESSE Everyday Comb, which I always bring in the bath with me- it's a wide-tooth comb, so it's perfect for wet or dry hair."

"I practice square breathing a few times a day to reduce stress levels and ground myself.

"I feel most in tune with myself when I am enveloped in nature, without a house or road in sight."

- Neada Deters

Bathing sounds: like a far-off record with intermittent splashing. Looks; like a cloudy ripple of water and pruned skin. Tastes; like humid air. Feels like complete submergence and suspension of all things beyond the bathroom.

"I am currently manifesting ease and simplicity.

Somehow life feels more complicated as time goes on, but my goal is always to embrace a sense of simplicity and, through that, joy."

"A soundtrack for elation, followed by a slow unwind. Perfect for the everyday rituals that bring us joy."
