Beauty / IN THE BAG

Kelly Gales knows good health

You probably recognise this beauty from the Victoria’s Secret runway, and while in town with Swarovski she chatted to us about staying healthy while travelling the world and staying sane in the process.

My top five products are …
Coconut oil
Dark raw vegan chocolate
Murad lip balm
A great pair of Swarovski earrings (like the ones I am wearing … to dress up any look) and I will need to come back to you on the fifth, I don’t know if I have one!

My travel beauty routine consists of …
Drinking a lot of water, taking a lot of Chlorella tablets – pre-flight, during flight and after flight … otherwise I just take them daily. Making sure my skin is completely free from makeup and anything else before getting on a flight. Wearing Dermalogica Skin Smoothing cream and ensuring I have a lot on so my skin doesn’t dry out. Eat clean too – I always do but it’s super important when you travel.

The best beauty secret I’ve learned backstage is …
To not fill my eyebrows in with an eyebrow pencil, because it makes me look crazy!

When it comes to beauty I always …
I always like to keep it simple and natural.

My beauty icon is …
I actually don’t have a beauty icon.

My biggest beauty indulgence is …
Cryotherapy, massages and super clean, raw vegan treats because that helps and affects your outside beauty too!

The best advice on beauty I’ve received is …
I know it’s going to sound a little bit cliché but you need to feel good on the inside so whatever you feel on the inside shines on the outside.

The best health advice I’ve received is …
To listen to your body and listen to yourself. Do what feels good!

The product I can’t live without is …
Coconut oil for hair and body, and I cannot live without raw vegan dark chocolate – I eat it every day … many times a day, it helps me stay sane and healthy.
