Miranda Kerr’s journey as an entrepreneur and founder of a beauty empire is more than just a success story. That her clean beauty brand, KORA Organics, has only continued to grow and flourish since its founding in 2009, speaks volumes of its founder’s sense of purpose walking into the business of beauty. During my last interview with Miranda at the height of the pandemic, she explained: “I usually create products that I myself need and want. Whenever I am creating a product, I really have envisioned exactly what I want it to be: the smell, texture, and results.”
In true form, the launch of her brand’s latest Organics Active Algae Lightweight Moisturizing was borne out of both passion for clean beauty–and necessity. Miranda begins, “My skin is combination to dry. To help combat dry skin, I make sure to use a hydrating moisturizer and exfoliate a few times a week.” And so she began developing a product that would address just that.
The use of active algae as the hero ingredient had to do with the remarkable results and benefits she and her team saw when they formulated their Minty Mineral Hydration Mist. It was the first time they worked with micro algae, recalls Miranda. “We loved the benefits and wanted to incorporate it into a product. Green algae helps firm skin and fight against aging. It also visibly improved dullness, fine lines, and wrinkles,” she details.
Formulated into a lightweight moisturizer now known as KORA’s Organics Active Algae Lightweight Moisturizing, this super kelp has proven to be summer skincare essential. “It provides long-lasting hydration without the excess shine. It also improved skin texture and clarity while soothing and comforting skin,” testifies the clean beauty empire CEO.
This summer, the light-as-clouds skin hydrator from KORA Organics is front and center in Miranda’s summer skincare routine. She enumerates that apart from the new lightweight moisturizer, tops on her summer skincare list are: the Exfoliating Mask and Noni Bright Vitamin C Serum. She expounds on her beauty regimen for summer below.
SMOOTH AND SILKY SKIN ALL SUMMER LONG
“I also love swimming and paddle boarding with the kids during the summer. The young ones have just learned how to swim so it’s exciting to think of all the fun summer activities we can do together this year!” enthuses the mom of three. She discloses that during the activity-filled season, she sticks to a regular routine of dry brushing and exfoliating. “When you exfoliate regularly and keep hydrated, you will look glowing and radiant from head to toe.”
On Dry Brushing. “I love dry brushing. I try to do it each morning before my shower. It doesn’t take long, two minutes max! It’s so energizing for the body and increases circulation and blood flow.”
On Exfoliating. To smoothen, brighten and detoxify, Miranda uses the Turmeric Brightening and Exfoliating Mask. “I’m obsessed with this product. I used it as a morning wake up scrub. I even use it all over my body followed by body lotion and oil. It’s perfect for dry summer skin.”
STAY BRIGHT LIKE MIRANDA
The supermodel and beauty icon also shares that since getting pregnant she’s had to contend with skin pigmentation. Apart from the requisite SPF (the tinted ones from Isdin are her favorites) and sun hats of summer, Miranda is never without the Noni Bright Vitamin C Serum.
“I use it every morning. Noni Bright Vitamin C Serum contains Kakadu Plum which is the highest source of naturally occurring vitamin C. This product has been a lifesaver for brightening my pigmentation!” Before tucking in for the evening, Miranda uses the Noni Night AHA Resurfacing Serum along with the Turmeric Glow Moisturizer.
For an added boost, she applies a layer of Noni Glow Sleeping Mask. “No need to wash it off until the morning as it dries as a translucent veil, locks in moisture, and won’t rub off on your pillow.”
To address dark, puffy, tired-looking eyes at bay, Miranda recommends Berry Bright Eye Cream, followed by Noni Radiant Eye Oil. “It is hydrating and brightening. Helps with fine lines, discoloration, under eye bags and puffiness too.”
THE SECRET TO GLOWING SKIN REVEALED
Since her breakthrough in the fashion scene way back in 1997, Miranda has lent a unique brand of radiance on the runways that’s distinctly hers. A growing beauty empire, three children, and best selling three empowering books later, she continues to illuminate a youthfulness that can only come from within. She reveals. “I love celery juice, it really helps you glow from the inside out. I really believe that the celery juice has helped so much with my digestion, as it’s such a good anti-inflammatory. It supports kidney function, it’s alkalizing and full of electrolytes.”
