Welcome to Founders We Fancy, a new series where we’ll be featuring female-identifying founders and leaders who inspire us. Part of our commitment to helping women find rest includes lifting each other up by promoting other female-founded businesses . We’re kicking off the series with Lexi Miles Corrin, founder and CEO of Canadian wax and laser bar chain, WAXON. Alongside heading a nation-wide business, Lexi is also a proud mother of two. We asked Lexi to answer some questions about how she makes time for herself and her favourite self-care activities in our first ever Founders We Fancy Q&A.
Get To Know Me:
Name, Location, and Occupation:
Lexi Miles Corrin, Founder & CEO, WAXON Laser & Waxbar.
Current Beauty/Wellness/Self-Care Obsession(s):
1) Apple Cider Vinegar; my husband and I take a shot daily and have noticed a lot of great benefits
2) My Slip silk pillow; it’s SUCH a dream (pun intended)!
3) My Radford tinted moisturizer; it is the only reason I looked somewhat attractive while having a newborn during lockdown. (Fun or not so fun fact: March 13th is when my son Clark was born and we closed down our WAXON locations on the 16th).
4) South pH Balanced Cleanser: I add it to my bath as a bubble bath and use as my daily cleanser. Incredible lather and scent and the best part is I don’t have to worry about it messing with my precious balance down South! Oh, and I’m also the founder of South Intimate Skin Care!
I Like To Spend My Free Time Doing...
What spare time?! Lol. I have a two year-old daughter, Piper and a seven month-old son, Clark, so spare time, especially with COVID still very much present in our lives seems to be hard to find. However, when I can catch some time for me, I fill it with a meditation, workout or if I’m REALLY lucky, both. My favourite workouts right now are Melissa Wood Health and I’m also obsessed with my Peloton and their new Boot Camps.
I Unwind With...
I mean, obviously a cocktail with my husband, Adam.
I’m Most Passionate About:
Women supporting women. The 150+ women that work for WAXON, motivate me each and every day to continue to grow our business so we can continue to provide opportunities for women, both working in our locations as well as our future franchise owners.
Night out with girlfriends or night in with myself
Night out with my girls every time!!!
When I sleep: silent & dark or noise machine & night light
I’m a silent and dark kinda gal, however my husband Adam likes to sleep with a fan.
I wake up every morning with: a very strong coffee or a morning meditation
I wake up every (most) mornings with a morning meditation and a lemon water.
I feel most rejuvenated after: a full night’s sleep or a day spent with my family
Right now, I have to say I’m craving a good sleep in. Am I awful for saying that? Lol!
