What Beauty Means to Lorraine Downes

For former Miss Universe Lorraine Downes there’s much more to beauty than what meets the eye. We chat with her about what beauty means and her approach to wellness.

What do you think makes someone beautiful?

Absolutely a beautiful kind heart. That kind of inner beauty shines so brightly. Beauty is more than a physical thing, it begins within always. Knowing who you are, being happy with what you have achieved in your life, what you can offer to other people and therefore feeling confident in your own skin. If you can understand that about yourself, then your beauty just shines out. I love this quote. “To be beautiful means to be yourself. You don’t need to be accepted by others. You need to accept yourself,” Thich Nhat Hanh.

What does your own daily approach to beauty look like?

What I feed my mind and my body. It always begins with a meditation of gratitude, which sets my intention spiritually for my day. Healthy nutrition/inner health supplementation with MitoQ/using natural skincare products/daily exercise/being out in nature to re-energise the body and soul, connection with loved ones and as much laughter as I can have/peaceful sleep.

What self-care practices do you employ? Why are these so important to you?

Daily meditation as this connects me to my inner soul which is where I find everything I need to guide me. This gives me my calm in myself and my sense of purpose in my daily life. I love getting out walking in nature, this helps me stay grounded and relieves any stress I am carrying in my body/mind. Moving my body whether it is doing yoga, a spin class, dancing the tango. All these things are absolute for me as it makes me feel energised. Catching up with loved friends/family and laughing lots.
