Do you take a special diet or have a strict menu that you follow to remain healthy and physically fit?
I wouldn’t call my diet strict, most importantly I try to avoid word ‘diet’ as the stigma behind this word that already subconsciously creates stress for our body and we don’t want this type of stress for us as body and brain doesn’t react well to it anyway.
I like my porridges – I make them as nutritious as possible adding berries, physillium husk for my metabolism, mix of nuts and seeds.
I also love cottage cheese with high amount of protein, and a lot of greens – salads. I am not a big fan of meat, but do I have seafood a few times a week.
Most importantly, if I’m craving my favorites foods – cheese or chocolate – I do have them, as long as I don’t have a kilo of it – I just simply do have some and my body takes it well as there’s no need for extreme diets unless medically prescribed by specialists. Biggest advice I can give is try to avoid snacking as you can lose track on how much you actually consume so try and have proper meals instead so you won’t snack much, and replace juices on real fruits, and fizzy drinks to soda water with some fruit in it or simple divine drink called water.
You have glowing skin and gorgeous hair. Share with us your haircare and skincare routine.
I have never been in a beauty salon for any skin or hair treatments. What I do for my skin and hair is make sure I eat nutrient food, drink water to stay hydrated and avoid being exposed on the sun without wearing a sun protection. I do have a certain skin routine – eye cream, face serum, day/night cream, neck cream – 2 times a day plus hydration mist which I spray up to 10 times a day, I carry it with me in a bag. With hair – I don’t do anything with that except doing extensions and I change them every 6 months. Unfortunately I have very fine blonde hair that I never coloured in my life , so I use very fine Russian hair extensions to match my hair type so I can semi protect myself from multiple hair styling done on me for shoots and events. I think the less we experiment with our hair- colour, rough brushing, constant styling, the less we touch it – the better it is for maintenance for long-term.
You go to different places and work with different professionals for your modeling career. For a model to adjust to different places with their own cultures, it must be difficult, and then to adjust to a modeling career in new locations and with different professional directors, what advice you can give to fellow fashion and glamour models in a similar situation?
I think we have to educate ourselves on different cultures, traditions, learn a few words in different languages to show respect and attention to different clientele we come across working with. Most importantly – do your job on understanding on what clients are after – mood board, style they are after, communicate to them and ask if they are happy with what results you are getting during the shoot, communicate to photographer, stylists and whoever is on set to achieve what they are after. And Of course, do your job with pride and in the way that by the end of the day you feel like you gave your absolute best regardless of long hours, hard tasks, any malfunction of wardrobe or anything that can possibly happen on the day and it does happen of course so do everything to be a reason of making it the best possible work created.
