1/ Hello Migna, can you introduce yourself?
Hello, my name is Mamigan Touré, commonly known as Migna . I am a young woman of 26 years old, high level athlete in basketball. I am currently playing in a professional club , in Montpellier. I am an international basketball player, member of the French 3x3 team. At the same time, I am a PE teacher.
I like to do a lot of things, I touch on everything, as soon as an opportunity to discover and train myself arises, I seize it. Traveling, sharing, transmitting, I love that . I'm never far from basketball, I eat, I sleep, I live basketball.
2/ The first thought that comes to your mind when you wake up?
As soon as I wake up, I'm happy to have a new day and I say to myself " Make this day count " !
3/ Your morning routine?
In the morning, I wake up, I drink a big glass of water, I stretch, I wash, I prepare my breakfast. I take stock of what I did the day before, I set small daily goals, I listen to motivating podcasts and then I end up watching " The Day Everything Changed " before going to training.
4/ Your definition of Beauty?
A person who has confidence in herself.
5/ Beauty icons that inspire you?
One of my closest friends, Clarice , represents for me the beauty that inspires me. She is confident, she loves herself, she is bubbly and beautiful inside and out .
Ryan Destiny and Aliya Will are beautiful women who also inspire me.
6/ The best beauty tip you've learned so far?
The best beauty tip I've learned so far is to use specific products dedicated only to the face. Do not use the same products for the body and for the face. This goes for everything, even the towel that allows me to mop my face. Each skin has specific needs!
7/ The 3 beauty products that never leave you?
I don't leave my shea butter, my Cleanactyl facial cleansing gel , my Labello.
8/ The craziest beauty trend you've tried?
I would have liked to test this crazy trend: eyebrow tinting! But I did not do it. As a top athlete I train twice a day so it's at least 2 showers a day. In other words, the dye would not hold ....
9/ The skincare routine that you follow day by day?
Today, I follow adapted skincare , which consists of a combination of Cleanactyl cleansing gel and Act 5 treatment (two Nubiance products ). I also associate the application of shea butter in this winter period.
10/ The best tips for erasing signs of fatigue in express?
An express trick to erase the traces of fatigue; a few ice cubes on the face and hop !!!! I would also add an outdoor sports session.
11/ What golden rules do you follow when it comes to make-up?
Eyebrows before tint! To achieve a fresh and uniform complexion, apply the concealer using a previously moistened sponge. Then I apply mascara and of course highlight. A fresh and natural makeup is always a good option!
12/ The make-up look that matches your personality the most?
The make-up look that sticks the most to my personality is a make- up, fresh, natural effect with a dark brown matte lipstick. It's all me.
13/ A favorite hairstyle?
My favorite hairstyles are simple braids or locks. I love locks.
14/ The keys to taking care of your mental health?
To maintain your mental health, you have to do things that you like, things that make you feel good. Appreciate the positive things that happen to us and/or that we have done.
15/ What makes you the happiest?
What makes me happiest is doing what I love with the people I love (especially my boyfriend).
16/ A particular diet?
I don't have a particular diet. I make sure to eat well, balanced and varied in terms of intake. I have fun on the plate, that's my diet!
17/ A favorite healthy drink?
18/ Are food supplements part of your daily life?
I do not take dietary supplements. I eat well enough not to take it.
19/ Your favorite healthy addresses?
My favorite addresses in Bordeaux: the Korean restaurant Bibibap and the restaurant “Les Sauvages”. It's too too good!!!!
20/ The motto that guides you in life?
"Know your Worth"
21/ According to you, what are the benefits of sport on the skin?
I think sport allows the skin to "get in shape". Sweating helps to evacuate toxins , it is a whole that promotes the fact of having beautiful healthy skin.
22/ What is your beauty routine before and after training?
In the morning (before training), I rinse my face, then moisturize my skin with Act5 . After training, I clean my face with the Cleanactyl soap-free cleansing gel , and I moisturize again. I hydrate my whole body, and I end up putting on Labello . And There you go !
23/ Do you think that your diet plays a role in the beauty of your skin?
I am convinced that food plays a very important role in the beauty of my skin, just like hydration.
24/ What is the secret of your figure?
I do a lot of sports, I vary my exercises according to my needs and above all I eat according to my energy expenditure. When I have a lot of training: I eat well. When I'm in "truce", I reduce the quantities of food.
25/ What does sport bring you?
Sport is my job but also a way to do me good. Sport allows me to let off steam, pass the time and have fun.
26/ Do you follow a strict diet?
I'm not on a strict diet. I am aware that my activity as a top-level sportswoman involves responsible ethics on a daily basis. It also goes through food. Sometimes I make fast food or other meals, but it's still rare. Every meal I treat myself healthily for my body.
27/ Your cute sin?
My cute sin: cakes, cookies, Pepitos...
28/ How do you deal with stress or the adrenaline rush on big days?
Stress is part of the game, I rely on what I know how to do, on my strengths to manage excess stress and I go there I don't think.
