“I use coconut oil in my hair and leave it in for a few hours, and it makes a great makeup remover—I use that or olive oil, which is especially great when you are on location and you can just order it from room service!”
I REALLY BELIEVE BEAUTY STARTS FROM WITHIN.“I feel most beautiful when my skin is glowing, my hair is silky and lustrous, and I don’t even need to wear any makeup at all. Eating nutritious fruits and vegetables and getting enough water—drink more than you think you need!—is a big priority for me, and then using good products and keeping consistent with my skincare regimen comes second.”
WHEN YOU HIT YOUR MID-TWENTIES, YOU START TO UNDERSTAND WHY EVERYONE TELLS YOU TO WEAR SPF.It’s so important, especially being Australian, and I don’t go a day without it. My routine is pretty simple. In the morning I wash my face with an iS Clinical cleanser, followed with their serum, and then I moisturise with La Solution 10 De Chanel, $132 at David Jones and lastly, I apply sunscreen. In the evening, a few times a week, I use Cosmedix Purity Detox Scrub, $69 at Adore Beauty, Resurface By Shani Darden Retinol Reform, and Chanel Le Lift Flash Eye Revitalizer. And the Oribe Gold Lust products are my go-to for hair, especially the Oribe Gold Lust Repair and Restore Shampoo, $63.51 at Net-A-Porter.
I’VE FOUND THE BEST NATURAL DEODORANT OUT THERE.It’s Agent Nateur & Shiva Rose’s Holi (Rose) No.4 Deodorant, $29.95 at Nourished Life, which is made of coconut oil and avocado butter.
FOR A NIGHT OUT, I WANT TO LOOK FRESH.Lately I’ve been sticking to really clean, matte skin, a blotted, stained red lip, a dark brow and no mascara. I use Chanel Vitalumière Aqua foundation, $78 at David Jones, Glossier Boy Brow, and Chanel Rouge Allure lipstick in Pirate, $53 at David Jones.
I LOVE FACIALS. I WOULD GO ONCE A WEEK IF I COULD.In Sydney, I see Melanie Grant, and in LA, I go to Shani Darden. They are my two magical skin fairies. For a body treatment, I go to a Korean spa, where everyone is nude and you get the greatest body scrub – it feels like a whole layer of skin has come off. My friend calls it the “dolphin treatment” because that’s how smooth you feel afterwards.
WHEN I FEEL LIKE HAVING CHEESE AND WINE FOR DINNER, I TAKE CHLOROPHYLL AND SPIRULINA TABLETS SO AT LEAST I’M INCORPORATING SOME GREENS!They’re great for an extra boost. I also take a daily probiotic and vitamin D because I’m inside a studio all day and sometimes won’t see any daylight. And I’ll splurge on quality organic food and acupuncture—I really believe it’s important to listen to your body, be gentle on yourself and nourish yourself with good food and good, positive people.
