Ashley Hart shares a glimpse into her life as a model

Plus, her go-to exercises for staying fit

Known for her blonde tousled hair, natural beauty, big smile and seriously great brows, Ashley Hart is one of our favourite Australian beauty icons, and the reasons span past her physical appearance. She’s also a wealth of fitness inspiration - a scroll through her Instagram feed reveals her healthy habits, her love for yoga, and of course, her sunny personality. Here, the model, fitness inspiration and Swisse ambassador spills all.

On the best part about her job…
“I really love modelling, however, my favourite thing at the moment is exploring a meaning of beauty that goes beyond just skin deep, it’s a sustainable happiness. It’s really wonderful that my job and partnership with Swisse enables me to constantly discover beauty from the inside and out.

On her least favourite part about her job…
“I travel around a lot and there is a part of me that craves being in a place for longer than a few weeks. I am an A-type personality at heart and I’d love to be able to have the routine that an anchored life brings – things like eating fish on a Tuesday and regular Sunday night dinner with the family.”

On her favourite place to visit in the world…
“Tulum in Mexico. I love the vibe and energy of the place. There is a really nice balance of being able to dress up and go out for dinner and dancing in the evening, combined with a relaxed, slower pace of life during the day. Tulum has an unexplainable energy that makes you feel very connected.”

On the items she loves to travel with…
“The new super hydrating Swisse products like the Hyaluro-Natural Moisturising Facial Serum, a thin sarong or throw to put over my hotel bed (it makes me feel comfortable, happy and have a sense of home wherever I am), healthy snacks in my handbag (like gluten-free energy bars, dark chocolate) and lemons to add to hot water throughout my flight.”

On her favourite beauty products…
Swisse Manuka Honey Detoxifying Facial Mask for a mid-week pamper session, Swisse Radiant Skin supplement to promote beauty from within (I can feel the difference in my skin with this collagen booster), Swisse Blood Orange Brightening Facial Serum – to protect my skin against environmental damage, as well as Luma Illuminating Highlighter and Luma Just A Touch Lip & Cheek Tint.”

On her favourite exercises…
“My favourite exercises include a mix of yoga, barre and Pilates classes. I also love walking as it allows me to connect with the environment and enjoy some ‘me time’ – plus, my legs and butt get a great workout!”

On her love for yoga…
“I was looking for ways to keep fit and came across Bikram yoga, which I immediately loved as it’s really challenging and a great workout. Very quickly I realised that yoga has many more benefits than just the physical aspects; it’s also great for your inner wellbeing.”

On her favourite way to indulge…
“A glass of red wine and flourless, dark chocolate cake.”

On her best tip to looking confident on camera…
“To channel your internal thoughts. If you think positive and confident thoughts, it will shine through on camera.”
