Originally known for her role on Laguna Beach, Lo Bosworth has taken a new role in the wellness world. From her blog, The Lodown, to her now successful wellness company, Love Wellness Co, she aims to provide women with a place for total body health and meaningful wellness habits.
Born and raised: Laguna Beach, California
Currently living: I’ve been in New York City since early 2012 and have a home in Los Angeles now as well. Living that bi-coastal life!
Known for: Being a nice friend and funny one-liners!
Personal motto: I was taught by my father that’s it’s always best to go for it, and that the worst thing anyone can say is “no”!
Success is: Happiness!
Advice I would give my 20-year-old self: I wouldn’t give any advice to my younger self. Self-discovery is part of growth.
People are surprised that I: Do it all myself.
The biggest risk I’ve taken that actually paid off: Starting Love Wellness. It’s so thrilling to create something out of nothing, and have others embrace it.
I’m most proud of: My family. My parents love each other, my sister has created a beautiful family of her own, and my little brother is getting married and has a great job. We all support and love each other endlessly.
Wake up time: It depends! I seem to be stuck on east coast time, so in NY it’s around 830am and in CA it’s between 6-7am.
Morning ritual: Emails, lol.
Last thing I do before bed: I love to drink a hot cup of chamomile tea in bed while watching something mindless on Netflix. I’ve always had a hard time falling asleep so the warm bevvie and background noise tend to help.
Guilty pleasure: A few bites of Mexican Chocolate Pie!
3 things vital to my day: Tons of water, good company, and exercise.
Website I check religiously: The New York Post and New York Magazine
I can’t leave the house without: Clothes
Skincare: Obsessed with SkinMedica SPF–it has infrared protection and is one of a kind!
Fav drugstore product: CoverGirl LashBlast mascara, hands down. Have been using it for years.
Most cherished wellness product: Good Girl Probiotics by Love Wellness
Best kept beauty secret: I’ve actually been using fewer skincare products lately, and my skin is glowing!
Tips on healthy living that you wish you knew sooner: It’s really all about eating tons of fiber, drinking lots of water, wearing sunscreen, and getting more sleep than you need.
Fav App: I really like Wunderlist– it’s my to-do list I take everywhere!
Binge watch: The Sopranos
Instagram stalk: Corey Booker
Album love: Anything by Florence and the Machine
Snap: No Snapchat, lol! So behind the times.
Feminine care used to have a hush-hush stigma, has this changed? If so, what do you think has helped this change?
When I first launched the business in 2016 the reception wasn’t quite as warm as it is now. You only have to look at the current cultural landscape to see that we’re living in a time, only 2 years later, where a company like Love Wellness can flourish as women take their fundamental rights, health and happiness into their own hands.
What is your fav product?
I’m obsessed with the Do It All Wipes! They’re pH balanced and natural, and so easy to throw into my purse to take with me everywhere. Just knowing I have them boosts my confidence.
What inspired you to start Love Wellness co?
I felt like there was a severe lack of natural, new products being made for women that addressed common infections, irritations, and hygiene. Everything in the drugstore, frankly, grossed me out and made me feel embarrassed. I wanted to change that experience for women.
What do you want readers to know about Love wellness?
