If there are two things Miranda Kerr has in spades, it’s incredible beauty and a stellar sense of style—so much so, in fact, that you’ll currently find her on the cover of Lucky’s 100 Perfect Outfits. And when she’s not gracing the covers of glossies, stomping down runways (she walked for both Stella McCartney and Chanel in Paris last month) or stepping out with her two-year-old son Flynn, the supermodel’s proven she can take care of business, too. Her beauty line KORA Organics just launched its official website, complete with e-commerce—meaning the model’s passion project will now be available to women around the world who are looking to get her signature glow. But don’t be mistaken—Miranda’s far more than just the face of KORA Organics. In fact, she spent years developing the products and researching ingredients alongside a team of organic chemists to get everything just right. Read on for our chat with Miranda, in which she shares her favorite beauty foods (and sporadic splurges!) as well as the super-charged, all-natural ingredients that make her skincare range so special. Then, click through above to learn (and shop!) her own daily beauty routine, step by step.
Lucky: Tell us a bit about some of the key ingredients you incorporated into the KORA Organics range. How did you discover them, and why do you love them?
I worked with an organic chemist and also used my own knowledge and education from studying health and nutrition to identify key ingredients—ones I knew I loved, and ones that really worked for me. There’s Noni, a fruit native to the South Pacific Islands that’s a powerful antioxidant and contains more than 170 vitamins and minerals. Rosehip oil is incredibly moisturizing and helps reduce the appearance of sun damage, scarring, stretch marks, dry skin and eczema—it’s wonderful if you have sensitive skin. And aloe vera contains tons of vitamins—it’s one of the few plants that contains vitamin B12.
Were there any specific scents you knew you wanted to use in the line?
Absolutely—I knew I wanted sandalwood for its grounding properties, and for the fact that it appeals to both men and women.
Speaking of which—does your husband have any favorite products from the line?
He loves the Essential Body Wash and Enriched Body Lotion.
What are some of your favorite beauty foods?
My Nan introduced me to Noni juice when I was 12, and I have used it ever since—I drink it twice daily in water, and it’s an ingredient in all my KORA Organics products. I use organic coconut oil in cooking and in salads—it helps with everything from maintaining cholesterol levels to aiding digestion. And green cold-pressed juices are packed with live, whole ingredients—like chlorophyll, which is very oxygenating—so it’s an instant health hit to the bloodstream. And each morning, I drink a glass of warm water with the juice of half a lemon. Warm lemon water kelps kick-start the digestive process for the rest of the day, boosts your immune system and balances pH levels—plus the vitamin C promotes healing.
You’re a big believer in the 80/20 diet rule—80 percent healthy, 20 percent indulgence. When you do indulge, what sort of snacks do you reach for?
Three of my favorites are chocolate-covered goji berries, homemade sweet potato fries in coconut oil and triple-cream goat brie cheese.
