Miranda Kerr, 35, got her start in modelling at the age of 13 when she won an Australian model search competition. She has since gone on to appear in major magazines such as Vogue, Elle and Harper’s Bazaar, as well as on the runway as Australia’s first Victoria’s Secret Angel, and in shows for Dior, Chanel, Stella McCartney and Viktor & Rolf.
In 2009, Kerr founded Kora Organics, a line of 100% Australian-made skincare products that combine natural and certified organic ingredients. The model-turned-beauty mogul, who spent 18 months studying nutrition and health psychology at the Academy of Natural Living, launched the brand after she had trouble finding organic skin products.
Kora Organics, which includes oils, cleansers, masks and mists, was self-funded by Kerr, despite being approached by numerous investors. “I wanted to make sure I was a responsible parent,” Kerr said. “At the time, I only had Flynn [her now-eight-year-old son with former husband Orlando Bloom], and I was like, ‘I want make sure I’m not just blowing money away’, because obviously with businesses, it takes a long time to grow.”

“A lot of products out there claim to be all-natural but have only one organic ingredient,” she says. “I didn’t want any of that greenwashing BS! It takes a lot of effort and money to get certified, but I thought, ‘If this is something I want for myself, why wouldn’t I offer it to everyone else?’ ” @mirandakerr @instylemagazine 💗🙏✨ #MindBodySkin #NoniGlow #KORAOrganics
Kerr now lives in Los Angeles with husband Evan Spiegel and her two sons, Flynn and Hart. In the past few years, Kora Organics sales have tripled. “People are absolutely loving the skincare, they’re getting the results they need because the products are super-powerful,” she said.
Kora Organics consists of forty certified organic face and body care products. Key ingredients include noni extract, macrobiotic salts sourced from the Pacific Ocean in Australia, rose quartz energized water, rose hip seed oil, vitamin A, vitamin C, and vitamin E. All products are cruelty-free and are classified as vegan, except for the lip balms and the unscented cleansing bar.
As for her morning routine, Kerr wakes up at 5:30 am during the week and at 6 am on weekends. She does a 20-minute meditation and stretching before waking the kids up. She also never turns her phone on in the morning to avoid being distracted by emails.

It's not one, but a blend of powerful, active ingredients that deliver the results and efficacy of our products 💫 Our Noni Radiant Eye Oil is a blend of certified organic Noni, Tomato Fruit and Marine Bamboo Extracts combine with Kahai (a natural retinol) and Coffee Seed Oils to smooth, tone and brighten the delicate under eye area ✨ At KORA Organics, we believe there is beauty in the blend 💖 xxx #noniglow #koraorganics
After, she fills the sink with water and ice and soaks a cloth, which she then puts on her face. “Then I have my Rose Quartz Gua Sha [a traditional Chinese skin ‘scraping’ tool], which we make at Kora. Sometimes I keep that in the fridge as well, so it’s extra cooling on my face in the morning.”
Next, she applies the Turmeric Brightening and Exfoliating Mask, which acts as microdermabrasion scrub and includes natural enzymes and peppermint. She then cleanses, mists and moisturizes, and rubs a mixture of the Noni Glow Face Oil and a moisturizer on her face with the Gua sha to stimulate circulation. Finally, she uses RMS concealer with a drop of the Noni Glow Face Oil as foundation, along with an RMS Lip2Cheek stain.
For breakfast she has 475ml of celery juice and gluten-free bread with banana and honey on top, as well as a freshly cut apple and a lemon balm tea. “And then we also do a shot of turmeric, orange juice, ginger and garlic. Flynn and Evan and I do that, I make it in the cold press juicer.” Good morning indeed.
