At Home with Paloma Gastelurrutia

Cardiovascular researcher


@paloma_g_


Paloma Gastelurrutia spent her childhood in San Sebastian, close to the Cantabrian Sea.

After many places, she ended up in Barcelona, close to the Mediterranean. She works as a cardiovascular researcher, but her creativity goes far beyond: she loves music, dance and all kind of coloured charts!

She is mother of two kids, one is 5 years old and the other 2 years old. She tries to enjoy life with them and teach them how to live connected to nature.

Town - Barcelona

Skin type - Dry

Favorite plant - Rosehip

1- How would you describe your skin?
My skin is thin and quite sensitive, with a big story of breakouts. I used to have combination skin but since my second child was born (or since I got older!) my skin is dry.

2- What’s your daily beauty routine?
At night, I clean my face with a micellar solution (if I have make up on, which is uncommon, I would use coconut oil first). Then I use a reusable pad with rose water to clean any rest of it. Then I apply an hydrating serum and with my skin still wet, I apply an oil. Lately I am combining Avocado and Camelia oil, but I also love Rosehip oil.
In the morning, it is just rose water, serum, oil and a mineral sunscreen.

3- And when you travel?
I have this travel bag with a small bottle of micellar water and another one of rose water. Then I just add the serum and oil combination I'm using at the moment and my sunscreen.

4- What’s your vision of beauty?
I work in science and I am very conscious of ingredients, so I love to check every label and I believe the less, the better. I'm also very connected to nature, and I try to look for products that are good to the environnent (conscious packaging, and avoid agressive detergents and microplastic scrubs).

5- How do you take care of your hair?
I decided to stop dying my hair 3 years ago. I have always been very simple with it, but colour was always present since I started having white hairs at the age of 18. To go from brunette to grey-haired I had it all bleached wich was very agressive, but I currently have my natural colour with blond ends. I use the Amalaki and curcuma shampoo bar and, to keep the colour bright, I use a blue shampoo in my ends twice a week. Then, I use white vinegar or a silicone-free conditioner.

6- What are your favourite ROWSE products and beauty recipes?
The rose water and the oils for sure! I used to love the body winter oil. Now, I have to try the summer one that looks fantastic.
I also have the Baobab powder, but I never find the moment to make a mask with the kids running around and having to work from home. Some nights I just mix it with my serum and leave it there the whole night! :)
