She Starts Her Day With A Smoothie

Swanepoel told The Cut that she likes to make healthy smoothies in the morning. She even shared her favorite recipe, saying, “I do have a nice beauty smoothie. It contains coconut oil, flaxseed oil, banana, protein, some kind of antioxidant fruit like blueberries or strawberries or some nut ʙuттer.”

She Takes Care Of Her Skin

Swanepoel has gorgeous skin, and she makes sure to take care of it. She shared some of her favorite products and skincare routine with The Cut. “I cleanse, tone, moisturize, and then do an eye cream religiously, twice a day,” she said. “I use this gentle green tea cleanser that I get from Whole Foods. My serum is Biotherm — they have one called the Phyto Plankton. It takes two weeks to start seeing a difference so I’m putting it to the test.”

She Learned To Work Hard At A Young Age

In an interview with SELF, Swanepoel opened up about her childhood growing up in South Africa. She says that growing up there and seeing her parents work hard gave her the atтιтude and mindset she has today. “I saw my dad wake up at 4 every morning to milk the cows. I’d put on my overalls and gum boots and follow him around. Growing up surrounded by so much life and death and realness shaped my personality. Africa is not for wussies. It’s in our culture to be hard workers.”

She Varies Her Portion Sizes

Swanepoel told InStyle that she likes to vary her meal’s portion sizes. She says that depending on the meal and the time she’s eating, she will switch up how light or heavy her food choices are. “One meal in the day will be lighter than others, probably during lunch I will [eat something] heavier so that my body has time to burn it off. Night-time is something lighter, and I will always have a big breakfast.”

She Cut Out Coffee

In her interview with The Cut, Swanepoel was asked what her biggest health and wellness tip was. Her answer was cutting out coffee. “Before I got pregnant, I was feeling my energy levels go up and down all the time,” she explained. “If you replace coffee with a decaf tea or H๏τ chocolate, it’s a good way to reset your energy levels.”
