Ms. Namita Nayyar: What exercises comprise your fitness regime or workout routine you shall like to share?
Ms. Roxy Louw: I love running outdoors and hiking, anything in nature or with my own body weight. I gain muscle really quickly and stay away from weights. At the moment I love ‘hot power yoga’ as it strengthens my core, drenches me, give me a cardiovascular workout, relaxes the mind and helps with balance. Other than surfing of course!
Ms. Namita Nayyar: Do you take some special diet or have a strict menu that you follow to remain healthy and physically fit?
Ms. Roxy Louw: I don’t have any set diet that I follow but I do believe in healthy eating. I eat as clean and whole as I can, that is without preservatives, additives, sugar and unsaturated fats. My dad had a terrible Cancer scare and with supporting him through this struggle, it opened my eyes to nutrition and what an impact it plays on a person mentally and physically. He had 3 months to live and he is heathy and glowing 5 years later with the correct nutrition. I have gone ahead and studied nutrition and have a anti cancer blog and instagram account where I share what I have learnt. www.roxylouw.blogspot .com @roxylouw and @healthygirl_rox for recipes.
Ms. Namita Nayyar: You have glowing skin and gorgeous hair. Do you take some kind of skin treatment to keep it young and glowing and secondly what you do to your hair to make them look so stunning?
Ms. Roxy Louw: Thank you, my skin is 90% diet, yoga, no sugar, lots of water, lots of sunscreen, salt water and moisturizer. I also drink allot of homemade ‘Kefir milk’ which is great for varies things..
My hair is purely treatment and surfing with conditioner in. I have a fabulous salon in Cape Town, “Palladium” who make sure that I pop in every week for a treatment, as the sun and salt water and hair dryers can be damaging.
