Victoria’s Secret model Herieth Paul on beauty mantras and the natural solutions

From juice cleanses to New York’s Emilio’s Ballato, Tanzanian model Herieth Paul shares her natural beauty tips, workouts that beat the bore and the restorative road to recovery.

My morning beauty routine is …
I have a very simple morning routine; I tone and then moisturise.

My night beauty routine is …
My night time routine is a bit more complicated. I use simple makeup wipes to take off any makeup I have on from work and then I double cleanse with Dr Bronner’s Lavender soap and then I moisturise with Tatcha Water cream (it’s made from rice water).

My favourite products for body are …
I love Kiehl’s Body butter. It keeps my skins so soft.

My favourite form of exercise is …
I get easily bored with workouts, so I switch things up every week. My go to are SLT (strengthening, lengthening and toning) and kickboxing. My trainer PJ is the best!

When my body needs to recover I …
I have an amazing osteopath (Fabrice), he realigns my spine because after wearing heels every day at work, my body gets imbalanced. I also like to do a little R&R at Aire Ancient Baths in NYC.

My favourite detox is …
I don’t believe in detoxing, I believe in giving my body all the right vitamins, herbs, fruits, vegetables in order for it to function properly. But I go on juice cleanse once a year for three days. I guess you could say that is my version of detoxing.

My favourite retox is …
Pizza and pasta. I love Italian food and New York has the best Italian restaurants (next to Italy of course). My go to place is Emilio’s Ballato.

When it comes to beauty I always …
I tell myself that I am beautiful, especially on the days when I don’t feel that way.

My beauty icon is …
My beauty icons are all the women I work with at Maybelline: Adriana, Christy, Gigi and Emily.

The best advice on beauty I’ve received is …
I was told to drink a gallon of water a day. I stand by this.

The best health advice I’ve received is …
An apple a day keeps the doctor away. But I try to eat something green and healthy before I indulge in pizza, pasta, or a burger.

The product I can’t live without is …
I can’t live without tea tree oil. My skin gets frequent breakouts due to having makeup on my face daily. But tea tree oil as a spot treatment is the best.
