Miranda Kerr, Australian model and ex-Victoria’s Secret Angel, also the wife of Snap Chat mogul Evan Spiegel, walks around with a rose quartz crystal tucked inside her bra! Yes, you read that right! A wellness fanatic, Kerr is a model-turned CEO of a best-selling organic beauty brand; Kora Organics. Wanting to be a marine biologist before the model world snatched her away; Kerr returned to her passion with her organic beauty brand which she has infused with so much self-love! So how does the very pregnant Kerr keep it all together?
Scaling back on her modelling and expanding on Kora was her husband’s idea. She had him try Kora’s Noni Glow Face Oil while they were dating and the rest is history. Kerr was introduced to the noni plant, the Morinda Citrifolia by her grandmother when Kerr was only 13 years old.
Coming from a family that is so into health and wellness, the family would drink a 30 ml shot of the purple and green fruiting plant juice because it is a magical antioxidant with over 100 vitamins and minerals. Taken internally and used externally, noni will make you energised as well as treat any pimples or even lessen arthritis pain. Thus, it comes as no surprise that noni is a key ingredient in Kora Organics products.
The extraction process was a three-year long experiment where Kerr was finally able to find a way to incorporate noni into her super effective organic brand. Her lotions admittedly cure various skin conditions such as rosacea, dermatitis, eczema, and psoriasis.
Back to Kerr’s love of crystals; rose quartz is her all-time favourite crystal, it has the power to encourage love, including self love, as well as open the heart chakra thus the reason behind tucking it close to her heart. Some say she also sleeps with a stone under her pillow and keeps one in her bag. Kerr’s love of crystals also dates back to her childhood when her grandfather used to buy them for her grandmother. Crystals are also an essential part of her beauty line with the idea that she wants to “infuse the vibration of self-love” into her products and thus onto the people using them. One of her important rituals is using the Rose Quartz Heart Facial Sculptor which stimulates circulation, promotes lymphatic drainage, lifts and sculpts the face and enhances the application of all skincare products.
“We can all be our own worst critics, so it’s important to love and appreciate yourself on a daily basis. This is just one way to do that. Even if you don’t understand it, I want people to sense that there’s something different and magical about these products.” Kerr says when discussing her brand.
