She Goes Outside

Crawford revealed some of her wellness secrets to Byrdie. She says that she starts her wellness routine first thing in the morning. Crawford loves to spend time outside, and does so each morning. "I begin almost every day by taking a dip in the jacuzzi outside. It really helps me start my day with gratitude and feeling connected to nature."


She Meditates

Another part of Crawford's wellness routine is practicing meditation. She tells Byrdie that this is something she recently picked up. "I also was able to develop a more consistent meditation practice during the past year.  My favorite time to meditate is midafternoon. I love just quieting my mind and also taking time to do a little reset midday—especially if we have anything going on that evening."


She Exfoliates Her Skin

Crawford has amazing skin, and she makes sure to take care of it. She tells New Beauty, "I'm a big believer in exfoliating my body, and I have more than one way to do it. I love the Elemis Dry Brush. If I forget or I am rushed, I use my antibacterial plastic pink shower mitt with body wash, usually Dermalogica—it's the body wash my husband and I both agree on. I use that most of the time, but I do like bar soap, too. The one I use when I'm going to shave my legs is Bulgari Au Thé Blanc . I also love the Arianna Ultra Exfoliating Body Treatment. I was walking down Prince Street in NYC one day and happened upon a small store. I went in and the salesperson let me sample it on my hand. I loved it and bought three! I apply it on dry skin and give myself a good scrub before I turn the shower on. I love the size of the dead sea salt scrub, and it smells delicious."


She Takes Care Of Her Hair

Crawford also has amazing hair, which she also takes care of. She tells New Beauty, "Even though I used to think I had to wash my hair every day, as I've gotten older, I try to go longer between washes. Usually it's about every three days, so sometimes I have to plan my workouts accordingly!"


She Still Indulges


Crawford tells Allure that she eats pretty healthy, but she still has her favorite small indulgences from time to time. "I always have a small piece of dark chocolate — it tells my body that I'm done with my meal. In my experience, if you're craving something and deny yourself, you wind up eating five other things, and then you eat the thing you're craving anyway."
