How She Comes to Yoga
"I was looking for another kind of exercise that would soothe my body and work with my flexibility." My friend was doing yoga, so I thought Yeah, sure, I'll I've really enjoyed it! I find it both stimulating and reassuring when it makes sense. In previous years, I had yoga videos on my phone that I would play and take with me if I did I travel for the show, I always come out with a much better headspace from yoga and it helps me to be more focused on the catwalk. (Hip dips are my favorite yoga move to tighten my core.) I have that Feeling that yoga is centering everything, so you do not feel so restless in life. "
Her beauty routine for self-care before the show
" Right now, I make sure I stay hydrated and fit and I'm trying to not to travel Before the show – I'm staying in New York to really concentrate and trying to focus on relaxing, making tea before bed, not staying up late and getting as much sleep as I can. I used to make up my skin before going to bed, Barbara Sturm's products have been decided. I visited her and she gave me a "vampire facial" and cream of my own blood, which I think is crazy, but it works. "(FYI, VS model Bella Hadid also swears by the vampire facial.) I appreciate that she would change her skin forever.)
Why she mixes up her workouts
" Just before the show try I train as much as possible, so I feel healthy and strong, but I also feel like trying to mix my normal exercise routine with other things – I go hiking, go for a walk with my dog or go to the golf course and play golf – Any activity that is not about going to a gym and being inside.
