THE TOP COAT
THE INSIDER’S GUIDE TO ALL THINGS BEAUTY, APPLICATION AND THE EXCLUSIVE LAUREN B. FORMULA
Tell us a little about yourself, and what you do?
My name is Sarah Healy and I am a SoulCycle Instructor in the Bay Area. I love to travel, snuggle with my pups, explore and create adventure, indulge in culinary experiences, dance, shop (who doesn’t?!), coffee and spend time with friends and family.
What’s your favorite part about your “job”?
I don’t even know where to begin! The greatest feeling is being able to give people the time and the space to just have their own moment to unclip from the real world and clip into what I like to call their “45 minute fantasy”. Allowing yourself the time to feel, to dance, cry, laugh, to push oneself, to realize that we are much stronger physically and mentally than we thought we were when we walked in. As an Instructor, when I play a song that holds a special place in someone’s heart, or say something that made them think “I can do this, I’m unstoppable”, that’s when I realize that it’s not a job, but an honor. Plus, I get to dance, move, and sweat with the most astounding people every single day! I’m a lucky girl to call this a “job”!
What are your must-have beauty products? What can’t you leave the house without?
For class, I like to keep my skin moisturized and fresh! I always wear Natura Bisse Oxygen Cream and Laura Mercier oil-free tinted moisturizer, a little dash of Dallas bronzer by Benefit, and I’m ready to rock! With all the sweat from class it’s important to keep not only my skin but my hair moisturized as well. Our uncle Phil has taught us the importance of taking care of your hair just as you would take care of your skin. After rinsing the sweat out of my hair post-class, I spray Philip B.’s pH Restorative Detangling Toning Mist and a squeeze of Royal Oud Mega-Curl Enhancer and I let it air dry. I always keep a Lauren B. Nourishing Hand Creme in my workout bag and my purse it smells amazing!
What is the most special/your favorite thing about where you live?
Easy!…Community. Come visit and you will see what I’m talking about! At SoulCycle Palo Alto, we have a saying, “#palostrong”…it’s the strength of the community that builds this second home where we can open our doors to welcome in people to a place where they can be themselves and have a family that supports their journey and supports each other.
What inspires you?
The strong women in my life, especially my mom. Music, people who aren’t afraid to be themselves, and honestly, my riders. I have met some of the most inspirational, strong, most caring people at SoulCycle, and I am so blessed to have been able to create a friendship and a bond that makes me a better person in the room and in my own personal life.
What is your favorite song right now?
I’m loving ‘Fade’ by Kanye West, I could play it in every class!
If you could live anywhere in the world, where would you live and why?
I would be happy anywhere as long as I had my family and my friends, and of course my pups! Life is enriched by the people you surround yourself with.
How would you describe your own personal style?
When I’m not in my Soul Swag, I consider my style to be simple but classic. You can never go wrong with a t-shirt and a pair of great jeans. I believe that you look good when you feel good about yourself, whether that be with diet, fashion, stress, and exercise. Your style embodies the person you see yourself as, the person you want to be! ROCK IT!
What places are on your travel bucket list?
Italy, Mykonos, Bora Bora
What is your favorite thing to do in your downtime?
I am a foodie to the max. Whether it’s going out to eat or cooking at home, I find that I feel my most comfortable or relaxed when I’m at home cooking, at my parents for dinner or out with friends! And of course, getting my nails done!
