MiNDFOOD catches up with actress and model Elizabeth Hurley, and finds out what her beauty secrets are.
You’re a mum with a busy career that often involves travel. How do you manage a balanced and healthy lifestyle when you’re on the go?
I like food in its simple state. I always try to start the day by drinking a large glass of warm water before I do anything else. When I’m on the go, I have small packets of unsalted almonds and walnuts in my bag to snack on so I’m not tempted by junk.
Tell us about your own beauty regimen. Can you share some of your beauty secrets with us?
My grandmother told me that fresh air at night was very important and if I sleep with the windows closed, I wake up looking washed out and with puffy eyes. I’ve been using Estée Lauder’s Advanced Night Repair twice a day for 20 years and would hate to be without it. I also have pots of moisturizer on my desk and in the car and apply frequently. Modern life is very dehydrating and I find my skin drinks it in.
How do you maintain a confident and positive outlook on your own beauty and on life in general?
Over the years, I find I care more about my health than my looks-although the two often go hand in hand. If I eat well, exercise and try to keep happy I know I look better. Brisk walks and avoiding junk and processed foods seem to make me better mentally and physically.
