From using turmeric in de-puffing ice cubes to sipping on collagen-fueled, skin-boosting coffee drinks, celebrities are definitely hip to the power of superfoods. But wellness-savvy supermodel Miranda Kerr relies on one that most people haven’t heard of: noni fruit juice.
“I’ve been drinking it since I was 13 years old,” she says. “It’s honestly been the key to my health and the reason my skin looks the way it does.”
Before you go running to the supermarket for it, though, know that it’s not so easy to find (at least in raw form). But, according to the Australia-born celeb, noni fruit juice can do wonders for your health and complexion. “Noni is such an incredible ingredient,” she says. “It’s known for its healing and rejuvenating properties, and it’s an antioxidant with more than 100 vitamins and minerals in it.”
“It’s honestly been the key to my health and the reason my skin looks the way it does.”
Plus, it’s anti-inflammatory and antibacterial—which is why Kerr has gotten creative with it. “When I was younger, I’d put the juice on my skin if I had acne or if I had a sunburn, and it really helped to soothe it,” she says. “For me, it was a no-brainer to have it as the key ingredient in all my products.”
The model-turned-beauty entrepreneur says it’s also the glow-inducing powerhouse in her new Kora Organics products (right along with rose quartz essence, of course), and it’s available in her superfood supplement powder for an on-the-go fix. She’s adamant it’ll give you the “noni glow” (which in Kerr’s case could also be due to the blushing-bride factor after her Memorial Day nuptials). But, hey, drinkable beauty is definitely a thing—and this radiant star just served up one more option to consider.
