In 2015, Cynthea’s daughter had a near-death experience with pneumonia at three years old. With nothing to her name, she was broke from the medical bills and long hospitalisation period. On top of that, she made the choice to leave her corporate career to focus on nurturing her daughter back to good health. This incident inspired her to start Super Farmers, a wellness company dedicated to helping people eat and live better through food and lifestyle education.
Since her daughter’s near-death experience, Cynthea delved into a lifestyle focused on wholesome cooking rooted in nutrition. This change also brought healing to her 30-year episode with eczema and chronic insomnia.
As a wellness coach, she believes in working from the inside out, choosing to take this shared approach when it comes to all things beauty. From taking immunity-enriching herbs on the daily to swapping sunscreen for antioxidant-rich foods, her routine is simple and focused on nourishing the skin and body from within.

Skin Deep goes beyond the surface and explores the relationship women have with beauty and wellness — and what that means to them today.
