If ever there was a poster woman proving a healthy lifestyle is reflected in your face, it’s Ash Hart. The model and yogi is all love and light, health and happiness. Yep, she gleams like the ocean down at Bondi on a clear day.
While she admits she’s both all-natural Aussie and beauty junkie, Hart’s skincare secrets start with not only what she puts on her face, but what she puts on her plate.
“My approach to skincare is similar to my food, to deeply nourish myself with love and conscious consideration of what my body and skin is in need of, to be its most vibrant self.”
For Hart, that’s skin-quenching hydration. “I tend to run dry, which is why I love the deliciously hydrating Swisse oils and creams, the more moisture the better.”
It’s the advice of an international model all-too-familiar with the Sydney to LA flight path, who could be forgiven for relying on face wipes after a long-haul leg.
“We are all busy but for me, my skin and self-care is a priority and something I actually really enjoy doing. It’s that moment, every morning to self-love and care, setting me up for the day ahead and at the end of the day cleansing it all off, creating a new fresh, moment. It’s quite ritualistic for me.”
Hart’s way of turning routine into ritual, is something we can get behind – and she’s got another one she swears by for that time of the month when she often suffers from little hormonal bumps and other blemishes.
“I find doing a detoxifying Manuka mask really helps draw out impurities.”
It’s not only skin masks she’s using each month to get that smooth skin feeling, the products you’ll find on high rotation in her cabinet are “Swisse Cranberry Antioxidant Facial Oil, Swisse Rose Hip Facial Moisturiser, Swisse Hibiscus Anti-Aging Night Cream, Swisse Argan Anti-Aging Eye Cream, Swisse Micellar Make Up Remover and Swisse Deep Sea Hydrating Mist.”
In fact, the Swisse Deep Sea Hydrating Mist is her ultimate beauty secret, making its way from cabinet to girls catch ups.
“It’s so hot here in LA at the moment that I often spray my friends with it throughout the day. It’s really refreshing but above all, it helps me to revamp my makeup, looking rejuvenated and fresh.” That’s Hart’s paying it forward tip to you.
