Say hello to TV host and YouTube star, Marianna Hewitt. Between her fab skin detox tea & home beauty tricks, I think you’ll find her tips extremely useful. Oh, and thanks to Marianna’s make-up advice [ see below ], I just bought The Beauty Blender- so excited to use this in my daily routine! Find her on Twitter @Marianna_1010. Happy Reading Dolls!
+ Quick skinny trick?
Eating small meals throughout the day. I start with a big breakfast with green tea mixed with apple cider vinegar & agave. Then throughout the day I eat lots of small meals- so my metabolism is always working. I don’t drink alcohol or soda and almost never fast food. Maybe once a month!
+ Weekly workout schedule?
I honestly am blessed with great genes. But I enjoy going hiking and I also do pilates! Pilates on the reformer has been a miracle for me. I stay very toned with long lean muscles and I love doing it! Max I go twice a week. I’m a small person, so I hardly do cardio because I don’t want to lose any weight. But in Los Angeles, I love to hike Runyon Canyon. It’s beautiful!
+ Favorite go-to healthy food?
Egg whites scrambled!! It’s cheap, easy, filling & I really think it tastes good!
+ Motivation to stay in shape?
It’s easier to stay in shape then to one day have to get in shape. So if you just keep it up now, you never have to stress one day on how to lose ten, twenty, thirty pounds. If you stay ready- you never have to get ready. Plus living in Los Angeles, it’s always warm so I need to be bikini ready all year.
+ Favorite beauty product?
The Beauty Blender makeup sponge. I cannot do my makeup with out this! I use it to apply my foundation and concealer. You can see how I use it on mh-tv.com or youtube.com/mariannahewitt I have a foundation tutorial. It makes my skin look airbrushed.
+ Natural beauty remedy that you do?
For my skin I drink green tea mixed with agave for sweetness and apple cider vinegar to detox. I also use plain greek yogurt as a face mask. I leave it on for twenty to thirty minutes then rinse off with cool water & apply moisturizer.
+ A secret model tip for diet and health?
Don’t starve yourself!!! Girls think not eating helps- & it really hurts you in the end. Continue eating and take care of your body. I also take vitamins. I take a pre-natal vitamin. Not only do I need the nutrients, but it’s great for hair skin and nails.
+ Example of a day’s worth of eating?
Breakfast: egg whites scrambled, cottage cheese with berries, & a green tea detox drink.
Snack: hummus or a natural fruit roll up.
Lunch: salad with chicken or salmon or smoked salmon sandwich.
Snack: candy! I don’t eat great all day.
Dinner: chicken or steak with a side of veggies or pasta if I’m feeling like it! I love penne with vodka sauce.
+ Quick, easy recipe:
4 tablespoons of EVOO
1/2 handful of cherry tomatoes
A few mint leaves
1/2 handful of toasted pine nuts
+ Directions: Slice zucchini really thin with a mandolin, squeeze two lemons, pour in four tablespoons of olive oil, & slice in half a handful of cherry tomatoes. Add mint and basil and mix it together. Let sit for two hours; every thirty minutes mix together. Toast some pine nuts to add on top. It usually lasts me a few meals so I keep a container in the fridge- it’s sooo delicious!!
