Happy Birthday, you divine creature!
Elle Macpherson turns 50 this week (Saturday to be exact), giving middle-aged people the world over hope that they can still look and feel good as they enter their sixth decade!
The supermodel once nicknamed "The Body" can certainly still boast the title, considering she still has the flat abs and lean legs from two decades ago!
And although she clearly has excellent genes, the Aussie attributes her good looks to a lifestyle that promotes overall wellness. She explains:
"There’s so much discussion surrounding health and fitness but what I really aspire to is wellness. Spiritual, emotional and physical, and in my experience they are closely interrelated. It’s not something you achieve simply through going to the gym, using expensive creams or speaking to a therapist. It’s a feeling of balance and strengh that originates from within.”
Elle also gives plenty of credit to an alkaline supplement that she helped create along with Dr. Simone Laubscher called "The Super Elixir," which is a power that is sprinkled over salads or added to juices in order to help the body work at its highest level.
Elle swears by the powder, saying:
“It strengthens me, to enable me to be the woman and mother I want to be.”
We don't know if it really works, but the modeling icon sure makes a great case for it with her existence!
