Beauty Fix | Naomi Campbell's Daily Rituals

 I'm always scouring the internet looking for golden nuggets of wisdom from the beauty rituals of fabulous celebrities. So far we've learned the benefits of drinking a gallon of water a day from Gabrielle Union and how sauna session creates Sanaa Lathan's glow.  For the longest, I've secretly wondered what rituals Naomi Campbell practiced in order to maintain  her Super Model Status for two decades.

I'm happy to announce we've I've been given a glimpse in her daily ritual via a recent Harper's Bazaar article chronicling a day in her life.  My prayers have been answered. Finally,  a sneak peak into the world of how a stunning, world renown model takes care of herself on a daily basis.   Let's get started.

 Naomi starts off every morning by drinking a cup of lemon water & taking her probiotics. We've discussed the benefits of water and lemon water first thing in the morning. It's like a mini-cleanse that flushes away toxins.  While we're asleep, our bodies work tirelessly to restore and rejuvenate.  Early morning is the ideal time eliminate wastes and toxin.  I love the fact that she includes probiotics to her ritual first thing in the A.M on an empty stomach.  I may have to try that.

After her lemon water, Naomi reaches for a glass of tea.  Again, another cleansing and nourishing habit.  I've actually practiced drinking warm lemon bamboo tea first thing in the morning. It's like killing two birds with one stone.

What would a supermodel's routine be without physical activity.  A daily habit of practicing Yoga and/or pilates is Naomi's go to option for staying fit.  She probably doesn't have to do much strenuous exercise due to her ultra clean diet.  Having recently become a vegetarian, Naomi  focuses on eating a natural, unprocessed foods. She makes sure to have plenty of natural snacks on hand including dried fruit, nuts, tea bags, water and a packed lunch.  Several times a day, she enjoys fresh green juices. Occasionally, she does a mini-juice cleanse during the week as part of her clean eating and detox ritual.

After a long day of shooting and wearing designer heels, she likes to treat her self to therapeutic massages to bring her body back in balance.  Finally, Naomi ends every day in prayer and gets enough rest to start another busy day.

These are just some of the goodies she shared in the article. There's additional info including her favorite eye cream, her most loved designers and more.  Check out the latest issue of Harper's Bazaar to  take a sneak peak into her entire "day in the life."  One last tip not mentioned in this article was how she splashes her face with cold water to keep her pores tight and her skin taunt.  She shared that tip with rapper Pharrell and he's been applying it ever since.   For special treatments Naomi, along with most every other celeb, receive oxygen facial treatments which deliver nutrient rich serums deep below the skin's surface, creating a truly healthy glow.
