Awakening to Your Inner Beauty | Elle Macpherson

Awakening to Your Inner Beauty | Elle Macpherson

Beauty is only skin deep. Or is it? The truth is, there’s a whole other kind of beauty within us just waiting to be found. Awakening to your inner beauty doesn’t happen overnight. It can be a long, painful process. But the reward it brings is indescribable.


Elle Macpherson is one of the most recognizable supermodels in the world.

You may know her from one of the many, many, many different magazine covers. Or maybe you’ve seen her on tv, or in the movies. No matter where you’ve seen her, you’ve definitely seen her. Besides being a globally renowned supermodel, Elle is also quite the entrepreneur and business woman. Her company, WelleCo, is a pioneer of premium plant-based elixirs designed to amplify your outer beauty through inner wellness.

Elle has been a dear friend of mine for many years now, but I learned so much about her in this conversation. She’s had an extraordinary career, and has won so many awards for her business ventures. But it’s her dedication to inspiring and motivating others that’s the kicker for me. This woman knows more than anyone that it’s not just what’s on the outside that counts. After becoming a mother, Elle had to face some hard truths about herself and how she dealt with stress. After attending rehab at the age of 40 for drug and alcohol addiction, she began to look within.

We touched on so many poignant things in this episode. But the main theme of all Elle’s enlightening stories is an inner awakening. She wants others to experience the kind of awakening she had, to connect their inner beauty to their outer beauty. And she’s not just talking proper nutrition and skincare, although that’s a BIG part of it. Throughout all her personal discovery, she now knows that emotional and spiritual wellness is just as important as the food you put in your body and the products you put on your skin. I can’t wait for you to hear this episode. Not only was Elle completely honest, but she was also vulnerable, which is a quality you don’t always expect to see from someone with such a recognizable image.
