Pilates and Dance Teacher

Patricia Moya, 55

Serucell User Since June 2019

“Aging well takes some work and I don’t want to throw in the towel! I am trying to balance letting some of it go without letting it all go.” 

Patricia majored in Theatre and Dance at Smith College and completed a two-year program in Advanced Dance Studies at The Alvin Ailey School. Her dancing career included national and international tours of Broadway productions.

After her professional dance career, Patricia transitioned to becoming a Pilates and dance teacher because “it was part of the flow of doing something that I love. Having practiced the art of movement for decades, it all comes down to balance,” she explains. 

Patricia currently teaches Pilates and dance in her hometown of Wilton, Connecticut, where she lives with her husband and ten-year-old daughter. When asked how she might describe herself, she responded “I don’t enjoy talking about myself! But words I might use would be friendly, open, curious and loyal.”

How she maintains balance in a busy life

“Without a lot of downtime, I aim to nourish my love of friendship, family, yoga, reading and learning something new.”

The advantage of aging

“I feel wiser than I did in my twenties and thirties, and I want to continue to grow that idea of awareness and embrace change.”

Her attitude on aging gracefully

“Aging well takes some work and I don’t want to throw in the towel! I am trying to balance letting some of it go without letting it all go.”

Her aging-well inspirations

“Michelle Obama and Julianna Margulies are aging well. I imagine they both share a certain trait I’ve always believed in: subtle strength! They radiate beauty inside and out and seem to have a strong mind-body connection.”

Her sensible skincare routine

“I use a gentle facial cleanser with a fresh washcloth, rinse with water, moisturize, especially around the eyes, and apply my Serucell. I see my dermatologist once a year for a full skin check and usually just buy a quality sunscreen on my way out.”

How she discovered Serucell

“I first heard about it from trusted friend in the beauty industry, and I’ve been using it for a few months now. I definitely see a difference in my skin—it feels smoother, looks clearer and seems firmer. I also like the fact that, unlike other skincare products, it’s uncomplicated to use.”

Why her hair gets a bit neglected

“I don’t have much time! My haircare regimen is very wash- condition-go. I am not talented at blow-drying or styling and tend to throw my hair into a ponytail for teaching and exercise. I wish I paid as much attention to my hair as I do my skin.”

How her beauty regimen has changed

“I’ve simplified. I don’t go for trends anymore. Once I find a product I love, I stick with it. And the products I cannot live without are cleanser, eye cream, moisturizers for face and body, tinted sunscreen, concealer, blush, eyelash curler, mascara, lip gloss and now, Serucell.”
