A well-known yoga lover, clean eater and advocate of exercising for an hour a day, there’s a lot to Elle’s beauty, health and lifestyle regimen you might not be aware of.
Here are seven of her tips for looking after yourself, inside and out – as told to Yours magazine:
“I don’t do my hair and I only wear a tiny bit of blusher and lip gloss. I get my hair blow-dried a couple of times a week, but apart from that I just put it up in a ponytail. Focusing on the way I look makes me uncomfortable, so I try to focus on the way I feel. Reading my child a story makes me feel great; doing my hair nicely doesn’t“.

BECCA mineral blush songbird $40
“I used to wear heels because I wanted to show people I wasn’t ashamed of being tall. But I don’t wear them any more because you don’t have to wear heels to be beautiful. I can’t even remember the last time I wore heels“.
“It’s absolutely essential. It just makes you feel better. You wouldn’t walk around with one blue sock and one red sock, would you? I believe every woman should have seven sets of beautiful lingerie. That’s the absolute minimum“.
“Stay out of the sun! Or if you are out in it, [be] responsible. Today, protecting my skin from the sun is so important. I wish someone had told me that when I was much younger“. Elle got behind safe tanning when she became the face of a top-selling Australian sunscreen company, Invisible Zinc, in 2008.

“I try to put aside an hour a day, five days a week, to do some sort of physical exercise, whether it’s Pilates or running in the park. Sometimes I need to run, other times to meditate, sometimes I need to dance with my kids, and sometimes I just need a good meal“.
“It’s not about agonising in front of the mirror, how many pounds I weigh or what I look like in [certain] clothes. There are some clothes that work for me and some that don’t. It’s all about how I feel“.
“Get scrubbing… I scrub my body quite strongly every day and scrub my face. Exfoliate, exfoliate, exfoliate. Keep skin soft, smooth and glowing.”

The mother-of-two recently claimed that at age 50 ‘feeling good on the inside is more important’ to her than looking good.
I'm a beauty fanatic and have worked in the industry for 5 years. The combination of my Architecture and Business Degree means I'm a sucker for packaging BUT stay loyal to products that perform. The creative element of new and emerging brands pulls me in, but the effectiveness is what I rave to my friends (and you) about. In my spare time, I'm either 'Nettflixing' or at the beach with my puppy.
