theSKIN caught up with natureofthings Founder and CEO JP Collett to discuss his favorite product, his grooming ethos, and his go-to self-care moves.
A typical morning usually consists of waking up at 5am to get the day started. We have two young boys that wake up at 7am like clockwork. My morning activities have to happen as the sun starts to rise. Most days include a black coffee and a drive to the beach to jump in the ocean. If waves are on offer I will usually surf during this time but if conditions are less than desirable, I will head home and do a yoga class with Tim Senesi
at home. Any day I am able to get into the ocean, even briefly, it seems to set my day on a much more grounded path.
My evening routine usually consists of cooking dinners with my wife, Kate, and spending time with our boys. I have discovered that our days are extremely full, so most nights lights are out early—sometime between 8:30pm or 9pm.
I have one area of mental health that I struggle with and that is stress. It’s one of those things where I put so much pressure on areas of my life that are out of my control and find myself spinning out from time to time. I have found a natural supplement regimen of CBD, a cortisol manager, and Manuka honey tea that has helped me tremendously. However, the best cure for me has been physical activity and diet. When my stress levels are overloaded, I realize that I have either been neglecting one or both of these parts of my routine and it takes a quick realignment to get back on track.
Surfing, swimming, and yoga are my go-to’s. I have never really been the gym type; I have found all I need in the ocean or the mountains.
