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 & 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 2 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 2 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 & lemon for a beachside spritzer, because it is summer after all.
