Lisa Carrington x Evolu Skincare: A Winning Partnership For Wellness

Lisa Carrington x Evolu Skincare: A Winning Partnership For Wellness

As 34-year-old New Zealander Lisa Carrington gears up for her potential sixth Olympic win in Paris this July 2024, her role as brand ambassador for NZ brand Evolu and spotlight from MyTreat embody the seamless connection between sportsmanship and skincare.

Furthermore, MyTreat's ongoing support of the Chiefs Manawa rugby team emphasises our commitment to nurturing women's sports and empowering female athletes to reach their highest potential.

These partnerships reflect our dedication to championing diversity, equality, and excellence in sports, providing a platform for athletes like Lisa and the Chiefs Manawa players to shine both in their athletic endeavours and personal care routines.

Just like a skilled kayaker rides the rapids, Lisa effortlessly glides through her self-care routine with Evolu's products, ensuring she's always ready to make a splash on the global stage.

Here, the world-champion kayaker paddles her way into our hearts, sharing more about her voyage of self-care and sports so far, in preparation for the 2024 Olympics.

What’s the biggest challenge as well as the biggest fulfillment of being a woman in sport?

To represent Aotearoa is such an honour, and the older I get the more I understand how much it means to wear the silver fern. Of course, there are challenges, but I see them as part of what is a very fulfilling and incredible journey. 

What does self-care mean to you? And how does skincare fit into your self-care routine?

I think self-care is very important. Taking time to nourish my skin is one of the ways I look after myself, and that in turn helps me to feel good. Because my schedule is very busy with training and travel, my daily skincare regime is quite straightforward, but this is why the products I use need to be effective—and Evolu products are.

Why partner with Evolu? What’s your fondest memory with the brand?

Given how much time I spend outside, skin health is something I’ve always tried to prioritise. I was drawn to Evolu for many reasons. Not only are the brand’s products free of nasty chemicals and made here in New Zealand, Evolu has a strong heritage and plans to keep innovating in the future. It was particularly special helping the team celebrate the brand’s 25th anniversary in 2022.

Have you used the Evolu Skin Rescue Soothing Eye Gel? If so, what’s your favourite thing about it?

It’s one of my go-to products. I like how it isn’t oily and the way it absorbs quickly into the skin. 

What are some ways you reduce stress and promote relaxation before bedtime to improve sleep and overall well-being?

My pre-bedtime routine is very important as it would be impossible to stay on top of my game without getting enough sleep. Before bed, I spend time stretching. I avoid screens from about 8.30pm and I make time to read before I turn out the lights.

What is good sleep for you? Is the recommended 8 hours a must? Or is that a myth?

I think everyone is different – some people can operate on less sleep than others and vice versa. It’s important to figure out what works for you. 

Evolu's Skin Rescue Soothing Eye Gel ($54.99) is included in MyTreat's April 'Sweet Dreams' Wellness Box with 5 other treats for only $67.50 if you prepay for a year.
