Elle Macpherson Shows Off Fit Figure in New Candid Photo

Here’s how she stays in shape.

Elle Macpherson is an extremely successful model. She earned the nickname "The Body" throughout her career, since she did a lot of swimsuit modeling. Macpherson appeared on the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit cover five times. Macpherson recently shared a swimsuit photo on her Instagram story. Her impressive figure was on display. How does she stay so fit? Read on to see 5 ways Elle Macpherson stays in shape and the photos that prove they work.


She Sought Help From A Dermatologist

Macpherson shared her skincare secrets with Get The Gloss. She says that she sought help from a dermatologist. "In 2014, I was burned out, irritable and exhausted. I first visited nutritionist Dr. Simone Laubscher PhD's London clinic and I remember telling her about my skin being particularly dry, dull and prone to rashes and hives. She prescribed me 30 days of her anti-inflammatory nutritional greens powder. After just a few weeks, I was feeling better, lighter and brighter. The quality of my skin improved noticeably and people's comments confirmed it."


She Eats An Anti-Inflammatory Diet


Macpherson makes sure to eat a healthy diet. "At the same time, I've learned that the best facial is what you put inside your body, which is why I preference an anti-inflammatory approach to diet and in turn, skincare," she told Get The Gloss. "It improves skin texture and appearance, as Dr Barbara Sturm, a brilliant doctor and master of skin care who I have known for over 15 years, often shares. This means I eat organic, whole foods and stick to plant-based meals. If my skin needs a boost for an upcoming shoot or event, I'll start juicing four times daily using my friend Dr Sara Siso's protocol — lots of turmeric, ginger, green leafy vegetables, cucumber — and my super greens. I'll also add our collagen powder to support my skin specifically."


She Stays Hydrated

Macpherson tells Get The Gloss that she drinks a lot of water. "Another skin essential for me is hydration. I drink three litres of water every day and start each morning with warm water, lemon and ginger, and two capsules of The Skin Elixir with water.  I leave the jar of skin caps next to my toothbrush to remind me to take them.  I take two teaspoons of The Super Elixir™️ greens in water in the morning too."


She Does Outdoor Activities

One thing Macpherson does to stay in shape is outdoor activities. She tells Get The Gloss that this also helps her skin. "We are an active family, so connection to nature and the fresh air tends to have a positive effect on our skin in terms of tone, colour and texture. Nothing beats a rosy cheek from being outdoors with my boys; hiking, skiing, biking or swimming."


She Limits Sugar

Macpherson shared some of her wellness secrets with Harper's Bazaar. She says that she has figured out a way to limit her sugar intake. "Since I've been taking the Super Elixir I don't crave sugar anymore and so when I have cheap sugar now I just don't like the taste. Sugar is addictive but breaking that addiction only takes about three days. Do a week of taking the Super Elixir greens and then try to give up sugar, it's usually pretty successful."
