Seriously, who wouldn’t want to look like Charlotte McKinney? She’s blonde, gorgeous, and always has a smile on her face. The stunning model seems to have a knack for looking and feeling great. We sat down with the bombshell to discuss some of her summer body, fitness, and beauty secrets.
Charlotte, you always look amazing! What is your current workout regime?
CHARLOTTE MCKINNEY: For me it’s important to sweat it out and mix up my workout regime! I’m pretty proud about how consistent I workout, I’ve built it into my daily schedule to avoid skipping out. Most days you will find me either at hot yoga, Hot 8 in Malibu is my favorite or a HIIT workout like Barry’s Bootcamp or F45 Training.
What’s your favorite workout class to take in New York City?
CM: F45 Training! It’s this awesome Australian 45 minute HIIT workout that is growing like crazy over here. There are over 1200 studios all over the world, which is great when I travel I can nearly always find one!
What about food, do you have any vices or are you generally healthy?
CM: Through my years, I fell victim to the many crash diets that go around. However, the last two years I found a path that works for me, it’s just keeping a super healthy and clean diet. No dairy and no gluten, basically vegan but I love sushi, you can never take that away from me!
Take us through a typical day in the life—what do you eat, how do you stay well?
CM: When I wake up, first thing first—coffee! Then to get me going it’s a green juice followed by my morning workout. For lunch, it’s mostly a light salad, which doesn’t mean boring! Luckily, there are awesome services like Sakara Life that make eating clean and healthy. My go to dinner is a light sushi dinner, that’s super easy on the rice and lots of sashimi. Also, someone once told me there are several health benefits of a good glass of red wine!
What about beauty products? Any must haves?
CM: Dr Barbara Strum literally changed my skin! I’ve been using her products religiously for over two years now, and wow, what was life before her. She even makes this incredible blood creme for me that uses my own blood cells. I also take skin food supplements, as skin is more about what goes into our bodies, not just what goes on top. As for my beauty must-haves, anything by Charlotte Tilbury works well for me!
What will you be packing in your beach bag this summer?
CM: Shiseido sunscreen, good sunglasses, the book I’m reading that week and, of course, white wine and lemon for a beachside spritzer, because it is summer after all.
