Supermodel Marisa Miller has a new interview with Allure Magazine in which she reveals her skincare and fitness secrets.
When talking about how she manages to keep her skin so flawless, especially now that she’s pregnant, she says, “When I found out I was pregnant, the first thing that had to go was the acne medicine and chemical-filled face washes and lotions. I made sure everything was natural and organic, and I started reading blogs from other pregnant women. Everyone was talking about AfricanBlack Soap. It's made out of plantain ash, Vitamin E, and shea butter, and it worked really, really well. I felt so weird using soap because you think, Don't use soap on your face. Use a cleanser, something fancy.
She adds that due to this new routine, “I haven't had a breakout since my first trimester."
She also talks about her pregnancy fitness routine, saying, “I'd heard that swimming feels so good when you're pregnant, and I love being in the ocean. I was even paddle boarding up until 17 weeks, but then my center of gravity and balance were completely off. I looked so funny standing up on the board with all that extra weight in front. I did Pilates five times a week during my second trimester, but it's so modified now, mostly stretching and breathing. It's easy to feel swollen and puffy, and moving really helps with the circulation.”
