In de Vogue Paris geeft de 50! jarige Cindy Crawford 5 Beauty tips: voor mooi haar, anti-ageing, het recept voor haar favoriete ochtend smoothie, exercise en ontspanning. Leuk om te lezen wat dit supermodel doet om al 30 jaar aan de top mee te draaien:

Hiking, cardio, squats, keep exercise varied
‘I really like the idea of yoga and jogging but old school techniques work better for me, like those taught by my personal trainer Radu, who I created my videos with. At the moment, I have a new trainer at home three times a week who makes me do push-ups, squats, weights and steps. After giving birth to my children or more recently before my book tour, I tried to calm it down a bit. But now, I turn up the intensity with cardio and HIIT, a high intensity training workout. I also try to go hiking in the hill and biking on weekends.’

Start the day with a smoothie that packs a punch
‘Before I start my day, I always have a home-made smoothie with spinach, almond milk, half a banana, protein powder, raw cacao and fresh mint.’

Keep calm with mediation and the sauna
‘We recently did an introduction to meditation course at home, as a family. I don’t do it regularly, but it was very interesting to learn about the benefits of it on my state of mind, from a neuroscientific point of view. It’s like a new tool that I have at my disposal to relax me whenever I need it. But my favorite relaxation ritual is my infra-red sauna: 30 minutes with a good book and I’m a brand new woman.’

Sun protection at all times
‘I have used my Meaningful Beauty line since I was 30 years old, which is constantly updated and improved by Dr Jean-Louis Sebagh. I am also a fan of Microdermabrasion from Hollywood beautician Cristina Radu every four weeks. If not, for me, sun protection is a must. Because I have skin that is quite sun resistant and tans easily, I grab hold of the first SPF that I see. On the beach, on the other hand, a hat and sunshades are musts.’

Condition hair overnight and while working out
‘I am a fan of double-duty beauty because good things take time and time is of the essence. I also try to include beauty rituals into my workouts. For example, if I know that I am going to wash my hair just after exercising, I apply a heavy treatment to my tips. A greasy ponytail never hurt anyone. Recently, I tested Lush’s Jasmine Hair’oïne. Unfortunately my hair is not as thick as it was. Over working it and coloring has destroyed it over the years. If I take the time to dry it (or better, have it blown out), I make sure that the result stays for longer than a day. I discovered that if I sleep with a high loose bun, my hair stays soft and I have the added bonus of pretty waves in the morning. The secret is not to use hair ties. Instead, I stick with a large clip, that way there is no elastic band.’
