If Miranda Kerr took just a tiny ounce of her beauty, bottled it, and sold it on QVC, she'd make millions.

Instead, the model shared some of her favorite beauty secrets, which is just as priceless.

Miranda says that she swears by a pricey, but effective Tahitian noni juice and coconut oil to keep her lovely glow.

The obscure juice derives from the fruit of the Morinda citrifolia treef, which is only found in Southeast Asia. She says, "I've been drinking it since I was 14, and when I've got a long day ahead of me, it's the one thing I can't live without."

The juice is said to "support your immune system, delivers superior antioxidants, increases energy, and allows greater physical performance levels."

As for the less expensive coconut oil, Miranda takes "four tablespoons of coconut oil per day, either on my salads, in my cooking or in my cups of green tea." She adds, "I will not go a day without coconut oil."

Well, sign us up! We're sure a drop of noni juice and a tablespoon of coconut oil is worth every penny!
