When she’s not strutting her stuff down a runway or killin’ it in front of a camera, Indigenous Australian model and Priceline Sister, Samantha Harris is making her health, fitness and wellbeing a priority.
Always looking photoshoot-ready regardless of the occasion, Samantha’s line of work means that feeling her best from the inside out is a non-negotiable. We love her lax approach to natural beauty and here, she spills the beans on some of her skincare secrets, her ultimate indulgences – plus, the biggest cosmetic mistake she remembers making as a teen… suffice to say we’ve all been there!
How would you describe your overall health and fitness philosophy?
I have a happy, healthy, balanced approach to health and fitness, with everything in moderation. I don’t deprive myself of anything, though if I do have a big job coming up I may become a bit stricter with what I eat. I also don’t stress too much if I miss a day of exercise – some days I just can’t fit it in, and other days my body feels like it needs a rest.
What does your exercise regime currently look like and what is your favourite workout?
I do a mix of exercises so I don’t get bored. I do a combination of body weights, high intensity boot camps and Pilates.
Apart from having the right products, how else do you maintain healthy skin?
Eating good, wholesome food, exercising everyday if I can, and having a decent sleep each night – you can’t go wrong!
What’s the biggest beauty mistake you remember making in your teen years?
I look back at photos and I’m horrified at my thin eyebrows. I wish someone told me that wasn’t cool!
How do you practice self-love?
The biggest thing for me is to not compare my life to someone else’s. You can get so caught up in that mindset with social media, so I just try to be as real and genuine as possible. I’ll post photos that aren’t perfect, but that’s because I’m not and I don’t think anyone is.
What is the first thing you when you wake up of a morning?
It depends if I have a job that morning, or if had a late one the night before. I’ll usually have a warm lemon water first thing and a black coffee, then a smoothie or eggs depending on how I feel. Then I’ll try and fit in exercise somewhere if I don’t have a job on.
Do you have a specific night-time ritual?
Not really – I’ll relax, eat, spend time with my husband and try go to bed before 10pm. Samantha is an Ambassador for Priceline, visit www.priceline.com.au/ to shop her favourite products.
