What happens when a Scorpio workhorse, who’s always on the move, starts to get frustrated with the incompatibility and lack of ease of their personal care routine? Well, first, many questions come to mind, like why were their expectations so low for something they relied on regularly? Why couldn’t those items be both thoughtful and efficient? And why, oh why, did they have to be so ugly? These are things that raced through the mind of Steph Hon, and what led her down the path of starting Cadence– the peaceful, efficient, traveler’s dream. Steph looked to redefine sustainable routines that not only wouldn’t be confiscated by the TSA but would look cute, work well, reduce their impact on the Earth, and be totally customizable to each of our wild 1-20 step skincare routines. Made for the outdoorsy hiker (we’re looking at you, West Coasters), the 6 am boot camp goer (hey-a, East Coast), the overseas traveler, the road trip lover, and every person in between,. Cadence delivers on its promises of peace of mind for each of us, and we really should have to look no further on how to unwind and turndown than by asking Steph herself what her moments of peace look like. Read on to find out how Steph relaxes in a good book while rock climbing and more.
