Like most working mums, Lara Bingle Worthington wears many hats: mum, wife, fashion model, spokesperson, business woman. Unlike most working mums, she has a glowing complexion in any and every photo, and a team working on said glowing complexion 24-7. Lucky.
Her irrefutably Aussie looks and beach-babe-meets-luxe-glam style have granted her a permanent place in the fashion pages. She’s married to a semi-famous guy too, so that helps.
The model launched The Base by Lara Bingle in 2013, a line of bronzing and tanning products, adding beauty entrepreneur to her list of job titles. The line has been a success, now stocked in international cosmetic stores Sephora.
But when it comes to her own skincare routine, the woman who’s had a complicated relationship with the media and her industry, has a seemingly down-to-earth approach. Her beauty secrets are surprisingly simple.
Read the full story here, My Regime – Lara Worthington, a few highlights below…
What are the three skincare products you can’t be without?
The Base Gradual Tanning Lotion is my essential for an all-year-round glow. My hair is probably the most low-maintenance thing about me but I love EVO ‘The Therapist’ Calming Shampoo and Conditioner. In the summer I let it air dry — the only heat I use on my hair is the sun.
Favourite skin tips or tricks?
I can honestly say I have never taken much skincare advice from anyone, except from the women in my family, who swear by such old-fashioned tips, such as swimming in the salty sea and drinking water.
What’s your everyday makeup regime?
I use The Base LB Cream in Caramel, YSL Brown Mascara, a creme bronzer and The Base Shimmer Illuminator.
Do you take any supplements?
More than anything, I believe that beauty comes from the inside. I’m very diligent about supplements. I even have a travel kit that stays by my side. It includes Omega-3s, Biotin and BioSil for skin and hair. I also take vitamin D, which I think is super important if you can’t get 15-20 minutes a day in the sun. At night I take magnesium, which is also really great for the skin.
What’s your number one beauty secret?
Never go to bed without washing your face!
What are your own must-have beauty products?
The Base LB Cream – it’s my must-have everyday product, especially since having Rocket. It is great when you have no time, as I’m sure all mothers (especially new mothers) will agree. It’s a multi-purpose cream that transforms the complexion, evens out skin tone and has a built-in SPF.
