To detox her health and beauty regime, Miranda Kerr’s secret is a little greener than your average: ‘To keep my skin in check I always eat lots of greens and take Chlorella supplements and drink plenty of water.
Sun Chlorella, which is an ancient Japanese wholefood. It’s an entirely natural and balanced, single-celled green algae, which, due to combination of nutrients and amino acid abundance, is linked to healthy nails, skin and hair.
‘A key part of my beauty regime is exfoliation. The benefits are amazing helping to remove dead skin cells, increase circulation and aid cell renewal. I always feel a noticeable difference leaving my skin smooth and glowing. Take the hassle out of dry brushing with my new 4 in 1 wet and dry brush. The battery-powered rotating head means it does all the hard work for you! You can use it all over your body and it’s even suitable for the shower.’
Elle Macpherson’s Wet and Dry Face and Body Brush provides a four in one body treatment and is simple way of keeping skin exfoliated. This waterproof device can be used before or during the shower and will even exfoliate toughened skin on your feet.
Jennifer’s friend and personal trainer, Dalton Wong, spilled the beans on a fail-safe technique to reducing bloating: ‘I gave Jennifer some Epsom salts to bathe in which really helps to get rid of any bloating in the body, it’s a great trick that anyone can use.’
Care Epsom Salts are a pure mineral compound composed of magnesium and sulphate which has long been known as a natural remedy for many health conditions. Many people know Epsom salts as a pharmacy product rather than a beauty product. They have a laxative effect when ingested, but they can also be added to a bath.
Jennifer drinks a decaffeinated green coffee extract called Svetol, which contains high levels of active compounds known as ‘chlorogenic acids’. One in particular, ‘5-caffeoylquinic acid’, aids weight loss by speeding up your metabolism.
Nature’s Best Verdesse. These capsules have taken Hollywood by storm and is the new must-have weight loss aid used by the A-list before they hit the red carpet.
Amanda swears by Vitamin C (and plenty of water) to keep her skin glowing.
Detox from within with Amanda’s favourite, Emergen-C, which is a new immunity and energy supplement drink. Packing 1000mg of vitamin C, which helps the body produce glutathione (a liver compound that drives away toxins), Emergen-C is perfect for replenishing much needed nutrients. One daily dose offers an impressive mix of 15 key nutrients: Vitamins C, B1, B2, B6, B12 and D, Folic Acid, Niacin, Pantothenic acid, Potassium, Calcium, Magnesium, Manganese, Chromium and Zinc.
Anna always scrubs up well. Her favourite scrub? ‘The Trilogy Gentle Facial Exfoliant is amazing! I also believe in doing a dry brush exfoliation once a week to get all the toxins out – as much as we put into our skin and onto our skin you want to get out, to get rid of all the toxins.’
The Trilogy Gentle Facial Exfoliant gently polishes skin, refining its texture without irritation. A nutrient-rich base of sweet almond, evening primrose and certified organic rosehip oil, active honey enzymes and camellia oil all work together to lift dead skin cells. Non-abrasive jojoba wax micro-spheres gently buff away surface debris and conditioning botanical extracts of macadamia nut and calendula soften and soothe for a radiant post-exfoliation glow.
‘The Manuka Doctor Rejuvenating Face Mask is my January fail safe beauty fix for when my skins dehydrated. I also swear by having regular facials.’
Manuka Doctor Rejuvenating Face Mask. A deeply penetrating treatment which contains a unique combination of Purified Bee Venom, moisturising UMF 18+ Manuka Honey, Avocado Oil and Vitamin E to help rejuvenate and renew skin. Collagen growth is stimulated and damaged skin cells renewed, helping to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
