Today we’ve got Trinity Mouzon Wofford, the CEO and co-founder of Golde, here to share her go-to self-care recs.Golde makes some of our fave wellness items, like this matcha kit and these Super-Ades (which, btw, are relaunching at the end of this month — so get excited). Without further ado…

Smartest purchase I’ve made recently…I finally upgraded to using an actual hair towel (instead of my usual trick of an old cotton T-shirt). Why did I wait so long?

Self-care product I swear by…Weleda Wild Rose Deodorant Spray works like a charm. It's surprisingly effective for being natural — and who doesn't want to smell like fresh-cut roses every day?

Three items I always have in my bag…Kosas Lipfuel, this Crown Affair hair scrunchie, and a good hand sanitizer (I love this one from Megababe).

Item I can’t live without during spring…A good pair of gardening gloves. This is my favorite time of year to be planting, pruning, and digging. A little hand protection goes a long way.

Fave Golde product if I had to pick one…Coconut Collagen Boost. It tastes incredible in coffee or smoothies, and makes a huge difference in plumping and hydrating my skin.

Go-to product that helps me live more sustainably…My Berkey [water] filter. It's an investment, but you save a lot of money over the long run.

My best piece of advice for young women entrepreneurs…Be relentless. You are going to see more than your fair share of missteps. What will define you as a leader is not your quick wins, but how you navigate through the challenges with unstoppable positive energy.
