She’s the Aussie Beauty with one of the most sculpted bods in the industry and the kind of girl next door natural beauty you would kill for, yet Jesinta Franklin is refreshingly real and the most low key model you could encounter.
Despite jetsetting the world and facing up glamorous campaigns for the likes of Olay and Dior, the Australian model, TV presenter and former Miss Universe is most content when she’s at home, with her hubby and relaxing over a home cooked meal… our kind of girl!
As a model who has to juggle ‘busy’ with ‘balance’ to stay sane and maintain a luminous glow, we can’t help but want in on the secrets to how she maintains inner calm, a toned physique and that natural beauty all at once! So, when given the chance to find out, we asked Jesinta to share with Sporteluxe the wellness rituals and beauty regimen she swears by for keeping ‘cool, calm and collected’ year round.
“I always start with a glass of warm water and lemon, check my emails, catch up on the news, select a podcast and then put my exercise gear on and head out the door for a power walk or run.”
“I prepare as much food as I can at home and love a daily bone broth, especially in the cooler months – I’m all about making broths, soups and slow cooked meals.”
“My food philosophy is relatively simple – I like to and eat organic, nutrient dense wholefoods. But I do treat myself every now and again – whether that’s a couple of glasses of champagne or some chocolate. It’s all about balance and keeping it real!”
“I’m all about mixing it up to keep things interesting, it keeps you motivated and gives you the chance to try new things. At the moment I am loving Barry’s Bootcamp and going for long bush walks on the weekend.”
“Back in the day I would work out six days a week no matter what, but as time has passed I have learnt that listening to your body and resting when you are tired or flat out with work is so important. Now, I am much more gentle on my body. I try to move my body daily, sometimes that is light stretching or yoga and other days it can be a hard run or a boxing session. I just listen to my body and do what feels right.”
“I have created a few public playlists on Apple Music with my favourite workout tunes. It all depends on what kind of workout I am doing. For cardio I like something fast and upbeat like house music and for boxing I enjoy RnB.”
“I usually wear head to toe black when working out, I don’t know why but that’s my uniform! In terms of my outfit, I like high-waisted, long tights and a crop top or t-shirt as well as a cap (for extra sun protection when working outdoors) and all black or white runners.”
“I love cooking dinner for me and my husband, I will pour myself a glass of wine as I do it and always find it so relaxing after a long day. Just as long as I don’t have to do the dishes afterwards!”
“I always attend a weekly acupuncture session, love taking a nice bath on a Sunday night and will take a daily walk while listening to a podcast. Self-care is so important and something I try to practice daily.”
