At Rae, our community is the reason we exist. That’s why we created ‘Your Shine’—a series highlighting how our community supports their well-being throughout the day. This week, we’re sharing how Leena Asuma shines.

Tell us a little bit about you. 

I am a 32-year-old woman currently calling Milwaukee, WI home. I am engaged to be married in August 2022, and currently living with my fiancé and our adorable little pup Milla! I work in digital marketing, as well as run a fashion + lifestyle blog on the side! I enjoy reading, watching movies, exercising (Peloton), and shopping!

How do you support your well-being throughout the day? ​

I make a point to take my vitamins + supplements right away in the morning! You won’t find me without a water bottle close by as I know how important it is to stay hydrated. I also try to move my body for at least 15-30 minutes a day, whether that’s during my sessions with my trainer, hopping on the Peloton, or taking my pup for a walk.

Why did you start Rae? What are your go-to products? ​

I wanted to find vitamins + supplements designed specifically for women, by women. I am taking a daily multi-vitamin that I enjoy, but I thought there might be some other products that could help balance my body and my hormones. My go-to products are the Pre + Probiotic Capsules, the In The Mood Capsules, and the Prenatal Capsules.​​

What helps you feel shine? ​

Taking care of myself and my body! It felt “easy” to be healthy when I was in my teens and 20’s, but now that I am in my 30’s, I need to be more cognizant of how I take care of myself. Whether that’s taking all of the right vitamins, keeping my water intake up, and doing things that nourish my body and my mind, that is when I truly shine.

What does ‘shine from inside’ mean to you? ​

To me, ‘shine from inside’ means that I am doing things that nurture my mind, body, and soul. In order to be the best version of myself and to truly shine, I need to take care of myself and my body, and that includes the vitamins, foods, and drinks that I consume support a healthy lifestyle, healthy digestion, and healthy balance.
