Famous Live Contributor / May 25 2017

The newly-pregnant supermodel has slayed countless magazine covers, boasts over eight million Instagram followers and has walked the Victoria’s Secret fashion show 10 times. Here the new face of Juicy Couture’s Viva La Juicy fragrance shares with us her coveted health, fitness and beauty tips. 

On fragrance
“Depends on where I’m going, or if it’s day or night, summer or winter, I tend to switch it around. I have a few I love, but most of them will have jasmine – it’s my favourite.”

On Juicy Couture’s Viva La Juicy fragrance
“ It’s a fresh and fun scent. Perfumes help me get into a certain mood, and I love this one cause it gives me that fun-loving, bubbly feeling – it’s a summer scent.” 

On her everyday skin care routine
“It’s really simple! I just cleanse, exfoliate and moisturise. Sometimes if my skin is really dry, I’ll use a natural oil mask with turmeric powder – it’s so healing and gives you a gorgeous glow.” 

On keeping fit
“The hardest part is finding motivation. I’m all about updating my playlist with music that inspires me, and buying new gym wear that makes me feel sexy. But when I’m really uninspired, I prefer to go do something outdoors like hiking or paddleboarding – something that doesn’t make me feel as if I’m locked into it and have to do it.” 

On how she trains
“I love Pilates, yoga and barre class; I love the mix of ballet – it’s just a great workout. But, in general, I don’t do a lot of cardio. I like to do resistance training or small weights.”

On what she eats
“Smoothies are so good for your skin. I love to mix it up with all my potions. [Laughs] I like to include coconut oil, primrose oil, collagen powder, ginger and lemon.” 

On a typical day
“If I’m not working, I’ll have a lovely breakfast with my family or go for a swim. My house in Brazil is right near the beach, so I like to go swim in the ocean! I love exploring with my fiancé – we do a lot of road trips and we are always outdoors. We love it.” 

On taking the perfect selfie
“Other than the obvious finding the best light, a lot of my pics involve nature or beautiful backgrounds – it makes it more interesting.”

On her biggest indulgence
“I love a good massage!” 

On her best beauty secret
“No matter what you’re wearing or how your makeup looks, it’s always, always important to smile.” 

On the beauty product she can’t live without
Sunscreen - I freak out if I don’t have it on.” 

On her ultimate beauty inspiration
“Brigitte Bardot.”
