Miranda Kerr’s ’15 Minute’ Morning Routine


On how she manages to look perfect with her 15 minute morning routine:

‘I usually have very little time in the mornings, especially with a toddler, so with these simple skin and beauty steps I can get out the door in 15 minutes.

I drink a glass of warm water with the juice of half an organic lemon each morning. Warm lemon water in the morning helps kick start the digestion process for the rest of the day. It’s also a morning ritual that cleanses the system, boosts your immune system and balances pH levels because lemons are very alkalizing. They are also abundant in vitamin C, which promotes healing and health.

(On dry body brushing) It’s a great way to get the circulation going, remove dead skin cells, aid lymphatic drainage, detoxify your system and keep your skin smooth all over. I start with my feet and legs and work my way up in quick gentle strokes…it needn’t be too time consuming and just takes a few minutes before jumping into the shower.

I wash my hair in the evening so it can dry naturally overnight. All I have to do in the morning is style it. At the moment I prefer a low braid or a high topknot, as they both require little time and effort but still look feminine and polished. I also use a hairbrush with a natural bristle as it promotes shine and is gentle on the scalp.

I apply tinted day cream as a healthy alternative to foundation. It’s quick and easy to apply and has the perfect amount of coverage… it leaves my complexion radiant with an even tone. Use your fingers to apply, as the warmth will help the formulation melt into your skin for a flawless finish.

I apply two to three coats of mascara. To finish off my look I apply lip balm if I want a more natural look, or a tint or lipstick in a shade of red if I want to make more of a statement – the red also brightens my complexion instantly. If I need a little more coverage I sparingly use RMS concealer where required.

‘Green cold pressed juices are packed with live, whole ingredients so it’s an instant health hit to the blood stream. The chlorophyll contained in cold pressed green juices can help keep your blood healthy and are very oxygenating. Green juices are high in vitamins and minerals making them great contributors to clear skin and bright eyes.’

What do you think about Miranda’s morning routine? Are we sure all these only take her 15 minutes?

Julie Bowen Brings the Quote of the Day


On Sofia Vergara’s beauty advices:

Sofía is a great influence on being a woman, she’s a great influence on accepting the power of pretty, and she’s a great influence on having a sense of humorShe doesn’t go out without putting on lipstick and she is the first person to say to me: “Where is your lipstick? Put it on!” She’s always at award shows telling me that. And I always feel so weird, like someone will think I’m trying too hard. She tells me all the time, “Who cares?”

Salma Hayek Offers Us Beauty Tips


On her diet:

Juicing brings me back to center if I wander too far into the Parisian lifestyle of wine, pasta and cheese. Organic fruits and vegetables cover my nutritional bases, but I never shy away from healthy fats, like almond milk — they are so good for skin.

On her hair:

I have wavy hair, and I know it’s not sexy to constantly fight the curl. When I come out of the shower, I apply a lot of sea-salt spray to damp hair and let it air-dry. My hair has never looked better!

On makeup:

The purpose of makeup is to look like you have none on. If you’re unsure of your best blush color, look at the inside of your mouth. That will give you a natural color, not too bright. I recommend this over pinching your cheeks.

On beauty and body image:

You’ve got to take who you are and love who you are and do the best you can with what you’ve got. That goes for the figure, and it goes for everything else. You’ve got to have a sense of humor about who you are and give yourself a break. You’ve got to be kind to yourself. And it’s not easy, you know?

… says the 47 year-old actress.

January Jones: “A strong brow makes you look younger”


On the most important piece of beauty advice she learned from her mom:

She always told me that if I kept making so many weird and ugly faces my face would eventually freeze that way. Luckily I found a job where funny and/or frozen faces are encouraged. Also, to not over pluck your eyebrows, a strong brow makes you look younger.
