Elle Macpherson, At 51, Continues To Defy Age, Shares Her Beach Body Secrets

Elle Macpherson, at 51, continues to live up to her moniker “The Body” and seems to defy age.

As reported by the Inquisitr, Elle MacPherson recently sported a teeny bikini, and she rocked it.

But what are Elle Macpherson’s beauty secrets that help keep her fit, happy, and drop-dead gorgeous?

The supermodel shared some of her top beauty tips with Redbook magazine for its August issue. She also shared what it was like to reach that milestone 50th birthday last year. Elle said her age is more of a gift than a curse because she has gleaned certain strengths she might not have had when she was younger.

“I feel very secure within myself – strong, happy and motivated. Hopefully I’ve gained some wisdom over the years. And I have a sense of humor about my mistakes. I’ve accepted that I don’t always get it right, but it’s not the end of the world.”

That’s not to say Macpherson’s beauty comes without some work. The mother of two shared her day-to-day routine that keeps her skin glowing.

“I exfoliate my face every day and my body twice a day – I shower in the morning and the evening. I use a body brush, which boosts circulation, and I always moisturize afterward.”

As for makeup, Elle Macpherson said she highlights one of her greatest features — her cheekbones.

“If you can draw attention to them, it gives you a wide-eyed, youthful look without having to put on a lot of makeup.”

She has been nicknamed “The Body” for a reason, and her sexy body remains as taught and beautiful as in her glory days. Again, it is a result of a lifetime of staying active outdoors and doing sports like swimming, biking, and hiking.

“As I’ve gotten older, I’ve increased my joy factor. Even if I’m in New York City or London, I’ll choose to walk rather than exercise in a gym.”

Macpherson has been posting photos of her vacation with her husband, Jeffry Soffer, and two sons around Europe on Instagram, and the results of her beauty routine are apparent.

Elle Macpherson told People magazine recently that she cares about how she is aging, her health, and her looks, so invests in those priorities.

“I look after my body… not just so it looks good or so I weigh a certain amount, but more so I am healthy, strong, energized and happy. That’s more important to me than the number on the scale.”

What are Elle Macpherson’s top beauty secrets?

She says she credits an alkalizing supplement from her luxury wellness company, WelleCo, a healthy diet, seven hours of sleep, 45 minutes of exercise, three liters of water, and “a lot of laughter” with helping her feel great every single day.

“In my view wellness incorporates physical, emotional and spiritual. I try to live an active wholesome life and I keep things simple.”
