Jessica Gomes interview Be You campaign

What does ‘Be You’ mean to you?

To be a trailblazer! To be a warrior! For me, the campaign is about being the real you, the person that you desire in your heart to be. With no fear of what others may think. To love all of you and control your own destiny.

How do you make yourself feel instantly amazing?

I try to appreciate what matters in my life every day. I’m alive. I’m healthy. I have my family and my friends who make me happy!

When do you feel most yourself?

When I’m at home in bed after a shower with no make-up on. Just in my pyjamas writing in my journal.

What are your ‘go-to’ beauty tips and tricks for a little extra confidence boost?

Go get a massage or have a facial. That always picks me up! Get the blood flowing and get glowing.

Do you have any advice for people looking to become more comfortable in their own skin?

Just surround yourself with positive and healthy people. I think it’s important to be surrounded by people who lift you up and who want the best for you.

If we were to take a sneak peek into your gym bag, what would we see?

Black ASICS shoes, Xtend Barre ballet socks, a sweater from THE UPSIDE, headphones and rose body mist.

How do you stay fit when you’re travelling?

I drop into an Xtend Barre class. Go for a jog or a walk. Or if I’m tired, I’ll stretch and get a massage.
