Emily Ratajkowski Is Not Above Washing Her Face in an Airplane Bathroom
Emily Ratajkowski may share scenes from her everyday life with her 21–plus million followers on Instagram, but the model and actress has a totally personal approach to self-care. “Sometimes it’s about spending a day pampering myself, getting a facial and my hair done, and other times it translates to eating copious amounts of Indian food on my couch,” she says.
Staying attuned to her body helps her take an equally intuitive approach to nutrition: “I had a big meal last night, so this morning I did a bit of intermittent fasting and didn’t eat until 2 p.m.,” she says. “But certain mornings I wake up and have to eat right away.” Ratajkowski admits her fitness routine “has really changed as I’ve gotten older” and now centers around workouts that go easy on her joints. “It’s not about getting my heart rate up; it’s about trying to keep my muscles moving.”
Here, the moves that keep her mind and body in top shape.
Ratajkowski’s clothing line, Inamorata, features layering pieces made of ultra-soft stretch fabrics. “It’s focused on feeling comfortable but also cute, which I think is a huge part of self-care.”
Mind Your Mane
She’d “given up” on her fine, heat-damaged strands before finding this cleansing combo. “Paired with regular trims, they’ve made my hair so much fuller.”
Make Time To Unwind
I love an Italian red when I’m with my husband or friends or trying to unwind. But sometimes it’s just me [drinking] in the bathtub—and I’m cool with that.”
Add A Sheen
“I do my own [prep] a lot for carpets, and this is a go-to,” she says of this roll-on body highlighter. “I’ll even put it on my shins so the light hits them.”
Ratajkowski enjoys getting treatments at Joanna Vargas’s serene spas. “I like her facials because she adapts to what’s going on with your skin at the time.”
Save Your Skin
“I get on a flight and wash my face in the airplane bathroom,” says Ratajkowski, who follows up with a hydrating serum. “A girl’s gotta do what a girl’s gotta do!”
Weekly gym visits include muscle-strengthening workouts. “I use ankle weights and a band to do booty kicks, squats, and really basic stretching.” The portable equipment makes it easy to do the same moves on the road.
