The favourite workouts of model Roosmarijn de Kok

Hailing from the Netherlands and now residing in New York City, Roosmarijn shares her favourite NYC workout spots and her homemade beauty secrets.

My morning beauty routine is …
I brush my teeth first then I cleanse my face with The Honey Mud from May Lindstrom. Then I use a face mist from Caudalié to hydrate.

My night beauty routine is …
Same as morning but I will leave the cleanser on for longer as its actually both a cleanser and a mask. I love to do a mask at the end of the day to really cleanse the skin, sometimes I even do 2 masks; one to cleanse and one to hydrate.

My favourite products for body are …
Coconut oil whipped up with shea butter, I make my own at home it’s so easy! Plus you can mix in any essential oil to add a nice smell.

My favourite form of exercise is …
I like to mix it up so I don’t get bored but some of my favourite places and trainers are Joe Holder, Russell SBC, Dogpound, Megan Roup and Y7 hot yoga.

When my body needs to recover I …
Love to just chill, meditate, go to the movies, eat some good food and get a massage.

My favourite detox is …
Charcoal! It soaks up all the bad stuff.

My favourite retox is …
Tony Chocolonely, it’s a Dutch chocolate company that fights to make chocolate slave free as a lot of cocoa farms use children and slaves to keep the prices low. Besides that they have amazing flavours like milk caramel sea salt or dark almond sea salt.

When it comes to beauty I always …
Wash my face in the morning, at night and even after working out to keep my skin as clean and clear as possible.

My beauty icon is …
Rosie HW – she is so beautiful and even has her own beauty line now! I would love to have a skincare line one day.

The best advice on beauty I’ve received is …
Less is more, I used to use very heavy products which actually made my skin worse. Especially when its humid outside I don’t even use a moisturiser to prevent breakouts.

The best health advice I’ve received is …
Find out what works for you. We’re all different, something that doesn’t work for someone else might just work for you!

The product I can’t live without is …
Lip balm – I love the Bite Agave lip mask, it’s perfect especially to put on before going to bed or on a long flight.
