Pia Whitesell Shares Swimsuit Photo "Happy"

This is what her health and beauty habits look like.

Chilean-Australian model Pia Whitesell is looking zen and happy in the summer sunshine, judging by her recent social media activity. Whitesell, 39, shared pictures of herself relaxing by the ocean in a beautiful white bikini, sipping on a drink and cuddling her pup. "Feliz ๐Ÿ˜Š๐ŸŒŠ๐Ÿš๐Ÿน๐Ÿ„๐Ÿฝโ€โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿถ ๐Ÿ’ž," she captioned the post. Whitesell's down-to-earth Aussie beauty looks effortless but she works hard to give that impression. Here are 5 ways the model stays fit, happy, and healthy.


Pilates and Bike Rides

Whitesell is a big fan of Pilates. "I practice Pilates and I'm still really active with my boys," she says. "We're always in the ocean and I like to race them down the street when we're out for a bike ride. Burning sage or palo santo during my beauty routine makes it feel more like a wellbeing ritual. Also, I try not to over-wash my hair. I'm always swimming in the ocean, so popping on a hair mask helps."


Sauna and Beach Walks

Whitesell loves using her sauna and being active with her sons. "I have an infrared sauna, so I use that a lot," she says. "And I have an unheated pool, so I go from the sauna to the pool. I really do love infrared โ€“ you can have a moment of escapism. It's like, 'Boys, I'm in the sauna. Do not disturb.' Being in the ocean and outdoors as much as possible with my boys. Whether it's at a basketball court or going for a coastal walk, racing up the street. I have these boys with this insane athletic ability. They smash me!"


Meditation Every Day


Whitesell starts the day with a brief meditation session. "I like to start with a 10-minute meditation session because it keeps me grounded and it's a great way to start the day!" she says. "I then start my morning beauty ritualโ€”which involves curling my lashes every morning without fail and applying SPF, a light concealer and maybe bronzerโ€”I like to keep it supernatural. I then wash my hair and let it dry naturally or if I have time I'll go over it with a curler to give it a slight bend and comb it through for that beachy wave look."


Treadmill Sessions

Whitesell enjoys mixing up her workouts. "I work with Fluidform [Pilates] and have been doing it at home now for some time," she says. "[Kirsten King's] whole philosophy as a Pilates teacher is about poise and lengthening. I switch it up with going to the gym and listening to hip-hop while running on the treadmill or on the step machine."


Embracing Her Age


Whitesell doesn't obsess about her age. "Age has never been something I felt I identified with," she says. "I've lived a life that called for great maturity and responsibility at a young age, and also one that calls for me to race my sons on our skateboards down our street to get ice cream. I'm more focused on how I'm feeling, how my physical and mental health are tracking, and I'm always trying to make sure that I'm doing all of the things I love, with the people I love. I don't think 'age' is relevant to how we live our lives. I think it all comes down to experience and connection."
