We’re on to our second featured “mama” of May and we are so excited to introduce you to Arielle B Zucker! Arielle was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease that furthered her passion for natural living. We love following her journey through her beautiful Instagram Feed and seeing the way her passion for wellness, motherhood and caring for others come together to create Veer Living, and idea that we can totally get behind.
Meet this pretty mama:
Arielle B Zucker, voice behind Veer Living, advocate for natural alternatives and well being. Curator at The Detox Market, Marketing and Business Development for L.A. Holistic Dentistry.
Who you are in your professional life:
I had my baby boy Zachary, 14 months ago so it has been interesting navigating where I want to be in my professional life. My passion for natural beauty and wellness has been a constant for the past 6 years, but now I feel a strong desire to educate other women/new moms on the importance of non-toxic personal care products. That was the impedes in recently creating Veer Living. Veer Living is essentially turning onto a path of living well. I always lived and was inspired by living a healthy lifestyle but being diagnosed with an autoimmune disease was when I started veering onto a path of living well and becoming more aware of the unnecessary chemicals we put on our skin. Through Veer Living I share products and services I believe in and hope to inspire others to live a healthier lifestyle. Stay tuned to see what direction this ‘veers’ in…
I recently curated the new Baby/Mama section at The Detox Market in Los Angeles. The Detox Market is a beautiful store that houses the most pure, unique and coveted products based on three criteria: zero toxicity, efficiency and style. I have worked with The Detox Market, doing Marketing from when they first launched in 2011. In efforts to develop this new section of the store, we partnered with a unbelievable charity, Baby2Baby and created The Baby Bundle: A collection of six essential products for baby and mother. All profits from The Baby Bundle will go directly to Baby2Baby’s mission: providing the many underprivileged, low-income children ages 0-12 with diapers, clothing and all the basic necessities that every child deserves.
I’m also currently involved in Marking and Business Development for LA Holistic Dentistry – the leader in holistic dental approach.
Who you are as a mom:
I describe motherhood as the hardest, most rewarding job you could ever have!
Saying that ‘I’m in love’ is an understatement! The overwhelming feeling of joy I get from this little boy makes all the sleepless nights so worth it. I have learned so much about myself through the eyes of my son. I think all mothers should use this as the greatest gift. The most important lesson I have taken form this experience is to BE PRESENT! Being present and enjoying those little moments that you will never get back. Recently, I have been juggling a lot and at moments feel overwhelmed, so I need to continuously remind myself of this, and to realize everything will get done! The balance is a constant struggle that I think most working moms deal with, however, the fulfillment I get from the work I do is incredibly important to me and who I am as a wife and mom!
Your skin needs:
My skin is constantly changing. I think this is the case for most women. The cycle of hormones, weather, stress and diet are all components that effect this. Hydration for me is extremely important. Every morning I wake up and have 2 big glasses of water with my probiotic. If I don’t do this right away, I most likely will not do it through the day! Along with using great products – it is important to realize that skin health comes from the inside! Eating healthy and keeping hydrated will have a positive effect on your skin – and make you feel amazing!
What are your hobbies and talents?
I love SPA-ing solo or with a close girlfriend! It gives me time to really decompress – if I have the guts to leave my cell in the locker! Montage in Beverly Hills and Laguna Beach are close-to-home oases!
My go -to work out is Pilates at Natural Pilates in Beverly Hills – Pre and post pregnancy it makes me feel incredible! I try to lock it in 4 days a week.
Playing tennis with my husband is our couple’s activity – we are both super competitive so it gets intense but makes it much more fun!
The one OLO product/or OLO ritual that you do for yourself. Why do you do it? How does it make you feel?
I cannot live without my One Love Organics Gardenia + Tea Antioxidant Serum! It is permanently in my shower and I mist it on my damp/wet skin every day! It hydrates while giving my skin a great glow…The scent it super calming at night but makes me feel rejuvenated when I use it in the morning! I also love that when I’m in a rush I don’t need to worry about putting on moisturizer. The antioxidants in this serum are so strong it truly is my number one body product! Being a busy mama also means that your Healthy Locks Dry Shampoo has saved my life on those days/nights I have no time to wash and blow dry! I have tried every brand and Healthy Locks is by far my favorite!
Why you believe in a beauty ritual/what it does for you:
A beauty ritual is not only beneficial to your skin, but it allows you a chance to step away from the day and give yourself 10 -15 minutes of self-love – something that all women and moms deserve! For me, taking a bath with great bath salts after my son goes to bed is the best! I follow this with misting my OLO Gardenia +Tea Antioxidant Serum all over my body, then comes my facial regiment which I change up constantly!
