Beauty Cabinet: Inside Miranda Kerr’s No-Nonsense Approach to Skincare
The supermodel turned beauty mogul shows us the way to a radiant, youthful complexion with her holistic, organic approach to beauty.| August 7, 2020
It might have only been in the last couple of years that organic skincare has become THE buzzword in the beauty industry but for supermodel turned beauty mogul Miranda Kerr, it has long been a way of life. In fact, she was merely about 13 when her grandmother introduced Kerr to the antioxidant-packed noni juice which has remained a part of her diet ever since.
Decades after, the same ingredient would go on to become the backbone of her organic skincare brand, KORA Organics. Conceived in 2009, KORA Organics counts itself amongst the early purveyors of organic skincare. The Australia-based beauty brand prides itself on honest formulas crafted through microbiology, aromatherapy and organic chemistry. Gentle yet effective, the skincare range’s body cleansers are even baby-friendly – Kerr herself vouches for it.
In the past decade, KORA Organics has won the praise of industry-insiders and skincare fiends alike. If you’re looking to dip your toe into the no-nonsense skincare arena, consider Kerr’s beauty regimen as a guide. Only the best in the business.
Hi Miranda! Can you take us through your daytime skincare routine?
In the morning, before I shower, I dry body brush all over with the Aromatherapy Associates’ Body Brush, it’s a great way to get the circulation going and remove any dead skin cells.
In the shower I use the Foaming Cleanser followed by the Turmeric Brightening & Exfoliating 2 in 1 Mask – I use this as a physical exfoliator 3-4 mornings a week, sometimes I leave it on for 5 minutes as a mini-mask. The peppermint aromatherapy is super invigorating and uplifting, so it’s perfect in the mornings! On my body I use the Essential Body Wash – it’s very gentle so doesn’t dry my skin out… it’s so gentle that I’ve used it on all my children since birth.
When I get out of the shower, I use the Energising Citrus Mist, followed by the Noni Bright Vitamin C Serum – it contains a 12% Vitamin C Super Complex that helps with pigmentation, fine lines & wrinkles, and increases skin firmness & elasticity. I then apply the Noni Radiant Eye Oil and Hydrating Moisturiser mixed with a few drops of Noni Glow Face Oil and apply over my face, neck and décolletage.
How’s this different from your night time skincare routine?
In the evenings I double cleanse using the Cream Cleanser, then use the Calming Lavender Mist (I also spritz this on my pillow before going to sleep), apply 1-2 pumps of our new Noni Night AHA Resurfacing Serum. I then follow with the remainder of my routine (Noni Radiant Eye Oil, Noni Glow Face Oil and Hydrating Moisturiser).
I also apply the Noni Glow Sleeping Mask each evening before bed. It’s a multitasking overnight face mask that’s more hydrating and restorative than a regular night cream. It contains silver ear mushroom, coconut milk, caviar lime, kakadu plum and natural hyaluronic acid, which really plumps the skin, softens fine lines, reduces redness and inflammation, improves cell renewal, tone and texture and boosts radiance and luminosity. I use it as the last step in my routine before I go to bed and there’s no need to wash it off until the morning because it dries as a translucent veil, it locks in the moisture and won’t rub off on your pillow!
Another step to my beauty routine is our heart-shaped Rose Quartz Facial Sculptor, which harnesses the ancient healing technique known as gua sha. It’s a rose quartz heart-shaped stone used massage your face & neck to stimulate circulation and reduce puffiness while lifting, toning and sculpting your face. I use this technique for a 5-minute facial massage morning or night with the Noni Glow Face Oil as it also helps it absorb deeper into your skin.
What’s one beauty product that you can’t live without?
The one product that I cannot live without, is our KORA Organics Noni Glow Face Oil! I have been using this for just over 10 years, and it is my every day, number 1 product. It’s a super nourishing treatment oil that is great for all skin types, especially sensitive skin, and even oily skin as it helps balance ph levels and control sebum production. It contains a rich source of antioxidants and essential fatty acids to smooth, nourish, hydrate and brighten the skin.
