Boss Babes: Meet Yasmin Geurts

As Boss Babes, we strive to better our lives by developing our craft and going after our dreams. We tend to have too many sleepless nights and drink too many cups of coffee to stay ahead of the game just to create the world we always knew we were destined to live. However, between the hustle and bustle, our well-being tends to take a backseat. This way of living stumps our personal growth and prevents us from living our best lives. So, this year, here at TTS, we’re striving to put our health and wellness in the forefront. Because while it’s always hard to find a balance, making your health numero uno is vital to feel like the best version of yourself. And thankfully, today’s Boss Babe totally agrees.

Yasmin Geurts is a kick-ass model who has a flawless complexion that will make you swoon for daaayys. Between being involved in the art community and booking stunning modeling gigs, she uses her platform to voice about women’s rights, body positivity, and health and wellness. While Geurts is fairly new to the NYC scene, she’s already kicking so much ass, that we’re pretty sure she’ll make her dream modeling gig come true soon (aka read below!). Meet the ever-so-flawless, Yasmin Geurts.

Tell us a little bit about yourself and how you knew modeling was the career you were meant for?

Let’s see. I’m new-ish to New York. It took me about a year to find my balance and once the year passed, my life kind of exploded. I recently became involved in a really amazing art community and then shortly after I signed with Muse; all of a sudden I was in the city really doing “it.” Whatever that means. I never knew modeling was the career I was meant for, I just happened to be in the right place at the right time.

With a strong following of around 30k on Instagram, what is the story you’re trying to convey to your fans and followers?

There’s not really a specific story. Instagram has always been a really easy outlet for my creative expression. It definitely has become its own moody creature, I just feed it.

You have contributed your voice for multiple publications for stories based on women’s rights and body positivity. With this political climate, how else do you hope to show your voice during this confusing and difficult time?

It’s been really important for me to have a balance of working on myself internally to keep from catering to negativity, but I understand I have a growing following so I feel responsible to continue to being politically active as much as possible. There’s definitely going to be a huge shift soon. We can all feel it, this pressure that’s been pushing down on us, something’s going to come out the other end.

Your skin looks amazing! Can you spill any beauty secrets?

Take your vitamins and stay hydrated! Lately, because of stress, I’ve been twitching my ears, I think it’s strengthening my face muscles. But it’s also giving me a sultry frown wrinkle.

I’ve been getting SB Skin facials before big events. They use sonar waves to exfoliate your face, I really like that because it makes me feel like I’m exfoliating with whale sounds.

At home, I use Kiehls products and natural oils. When my skin needs extra love I make a homemade avocado and honey mask. I also love Rosewater! I don’t know if it does much but it makes me feel pretty.

If you could tell your younger self anything, what advice would you give for her to feel comfortable in her skin?

I would just give her a hug and tell her she’s loved.

Best way to spend a Saturday night off?

Getting glam’d up and then deciding to stay in and have a dance party at home

Any advice for future Boss Babes, especially those looking to get into the modeling world?

Keep doing you, don’t forget where you came from, always put your health first.
