"There are no shortcuts to great skin," says Miranda Kerr.
That's why the 34-year-old supermodel is so committed to all things organic—both inside and out.
She has famously credited her glowing complexion to lots of Noni juice (an antioxidant-rich fruit native to Australasia), and daily spoonfuls of coconut oil.
What you might not know is that Miranda is also a certified health coach, having studied nutrition in both the US and Australia before she skyrocketed to fame as a Victoria's Secret Angel.
Naturally, she's equally mindful of healthy skincare. When she couldn't find any certified-organic products that delivered results, she created her own line: Kora Organics. "I want people to be more aware of what they're putting on to their skin and the potential harm or risk those chemicals carry," she told Gritty Pretty. "Healthy skin is beautiful skin!"
I think we can all agree that Miranda's dedication to healthy living is paying off. I've never, EVER seen her skin look anything less than flawless!
"I believe in simple steps: cleanse, exfoliate, tone, moisturize, and a mask once a week," she told Into The Gloss. Here's what's involved in her routine:
Miranda's Morning Skincare Routine
Kora Organics Foaming Cleanser: "Every morning, I wash my face with [this]. It's a gentle, soap-free foaming cleanser."
2. Face Mist:
Kora Organics Balancing Rose Mist: "Once my face is cleansed, I then mist all over with the Kora Rose Balancing Mist. And this mist serves a dual purpose because I use it with my NuFace."
Kora Organics Energising Citrus Mist: "I use our citrus mist in the day because it's energizing and the aromatherapy benefits of it are really incredible. I'm obsessed with them."
NuFace Trinity Facial Toning Device: "NuFace is a little lifting machine which needs to be activated with water or gel. I like to actually lift a little [near my eyes]."
4. Face Oil:
Kora Organics Noni Glow Face Oil: "I then apply Kora Organics Noni Glow, a couple of drops. I use this morning and night religiously. It has Noni extract, rosehip, pomegranate oil, sea buckhorn—it has so many antioxidants. I mix that actually with a little Soothing moisturizer.
Kora Organics Soothing Moisturizer: "My moisturizer depends on the state of my skin, so sometimes I'll use [this]."
Kora Organics Purifying Moisturizer: "Or, if I'm having a bit of a breakout, I'll use Purifying Day and Night Cream."
6. Tinted Moisturizer:
Kora Organics Tinted Day Cream: "I'll apply the soothing Day and Night Cream mixed in with a little of the Tinted Day Cream. It's quick and easy to apply and has the perfect amount of coverage. It leaves my complexion radiant with an even tone."
Actinica Liposomal Sunscreen SPF 50+: "[Australians] take sun protection pretty seriously. I'm always in a big hat and cover my face as much as possible. I use Actinica, which is 50+ and protects against UVA and UVB."
Miranda's Nighttime Skincare Routine
Kora Organics Cream Cleanser: "Pretty much as soon as I get home from work, I like to just take off my makeup and slip into a robe. We have a really great cream cleanser, which I love to use to remove makeup because it's really gentle."
2. Face Mist:
Kora Organics Calming Lavender Mist: "I will tone my skin with a lavender mist at night because it calms and helps promote restful sleep."
Kora Organics Age-Defying AHA Facial Exfoliator: "I'm obsessed with [it]! I use it a little too much. You know with those kinds of products, you should just use it every second day and whatnot, but I use it every day because I like that smooth skin that just feels so fresh. I leave it on for five-ish minutes."
Kora Organics Exfoliating Cream: "I'll use my Exfoliating Cream every second night."
4. Face Oil:
Kora Organics Noni Glow Face Oil: "This face oil is so hydrating and it also balances the pH of your skin. I use it every night, I wake up, and my skin is literally glowing."
Kora Organics Luxurious Rosehip Oil: "[It's] also amazing at night, so I'll wear that on my face—it's great for age prevention."
Miranda's Skincare Treatments
Kora Organics Clay Purifying Mask: "[In the evening] I'll use a face mask, which I love putting on when I'm either doing yoga or taking a bath. I like to feel like I'm doing something when I have the face mask on. I'll put the Purifying Mask on my T-zone."
Kora Organics Hydrating Mask: "[I'll put] the Hydrating Mask around the outside of my face. Sometimes I will sleep in the hydrating one, and my skin wakes up so soft."
"I like to make a cold cucumber mask to use on my face. You have to make sure the cucumbers are very cold and then grate them to make the mask. I also use cold cucumbers on my eyes if I wake up and my eyes are puffy. It really works for me."
"Fill your basin with a jug of freshly boiled water, add an organic green tea bag to the water, place your head over the basin and cover with a large towel… let the steam envelope your face for a few minutes to open your pores."
"I've had a leech facial. They've been doing leech therapy for thousands of years. I kept the leeches, they're in my koi pond. You're not allowed to re-use them and if you don't take them home then she kills them and I didn't like that idea."
"After travelling I love to get into my portable infrared sauna. You literally get inside of it and then you can fold it up and put it underneath your bed once you've finished. It's one of my all-time favourite purchases. My body feels so good after sweating it out in there. It's an amazing way to detox your body!"
Dry Body Brushing:
"I swear by dry body brushing to get the circulation going, remove dry skin cells, detoxify the body and start the lymphatic system. I begin at my feet and work my way up towards my heart. I do it every morning religiously."
"I like to rinse my body with cold water when I have a shower. I have it on really nice and warm, then you go super-cold. It feels so invigorating and is so good for your scalp and your face, it really wakes you up."
"Another thing I do is take a bath. I make it super hot and I put a pound of baking soda and a pound of sea salt and that draws [the toxins] out of your body."
Miranda's Diet, Exercise and Lifestyle
"I drink Noni juice, and so does my son. You notice a big difference. It has over a hundred vitamins and minerals. I've been drinking it since I was 13 years old. It's honestly been the key to my health and the reason my skin looks the way it does."
"I like to start the day with warm water and lemon. I feel like that really helps kick start digestion for the rest of the day. I follow this with a cold pressed green juice."
"I try my best to eat healthy, organic foods 80 per cent of the time but it's also important not to deprive yourself of things because then you just crave it more and rather than eating one piece of chocolate, you'll devour the whole block!"
"I like to have lots of yummy, healthy treats. There are lots of fresh berries, strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, and raspberries [in my fridge]. I always have lots of greens, like kale and cucumber and baby spinach and celery. You'll find aloe vera in my fridge. You'll find Noni juice in my fridge. I try to avoid dairy and stick to goat's milk now, because goats only have one stomach like us, so we can absorb the calcium from them better than we can from cows."
"I will not go a day without coconut oil. I personally take four tablespoons per day, either on my salads, in my cooking or in my cups of green tea."
Kora Organics Noni Glow Skinfood Dietary Supplement Powder: "This is a superfood supplement. It's so easy to travel with. It's a single-serve sachet, so you empty this into water and then you drink it. It's for your skin so that you are glowing from the inside out. And it also is great for energy."
"I also take chlorella daily, vitamin C, and probiotics. If you have a healthy gut you have a healthy brain and generally a healthy body—I think that is so important."
IV Vitamin Therapy:
"With all of my travel and flying, it's really hard to stay hydrated. And [the IV is] really hydrating."
"I do Kundalini. It's quite intense, it just makes your aura feel amazing. After I've done yoga, people are like 'oh you look fresh.'"
"My routine varies each day depending on how much time I have, and I like to mix it up between Kundalini yoga, pilates, swimming, resistance training. If I have a shoot coming up, I target specific areas."
"I'm a big fan of transcendental meditation and prayer. I like to do a prayer in the morning and a prayer at night. And I try and do meditation at least once a day for 20 minutes. Sometimes what I'll do, if there's a lot of things going on around me, I'll put my headphones in. I close my eyes and put focus on my mantras. With my prayers I say thank you for my health, my family and my friends, ask God to bless my day. If I'm doing a photo shoot, I'll ask to please uplift everyone involved in the shoot—the intention is to create a happy day. It's also nice to pray for anyone that's struggling or having a hard time, you can send them love."
"I like to carry a small rose quartz crystal with me in my handbag. It encourages healthy self-love, and can bestow compassion, forgiveness and acceptance. Rose quartz is also soothing, calming and reduces stress and tension."
