LA-based Bonita Kye is the founder of the lingerie line KYE Intimates. Bonita takes us through her seaside bathing routine as a source of clarity and a sensorial experience. She shares how she resets at the beginning and end of each day and starts anew.
"Bathing in the ocean is where I continue to find solace, clarity and community. I feel renewed by taking a simple shower or playing in the sea.
Alternate Nostril Breathing has become a favourite part of my morning ritual for energy and renewal."
"To wind down before bed, I leave my phone in the kitchen and use an analog clock as an alarm. Upon waking, I avoid electronics for the first hour.
My favourite beauty tool is a dry brush. It always reminds me of my mother. When I was younger, it was such a special ritual getting to spend time together."
