Colours for a healthy glow: Nourish your skin from the inside out!

Did you know that the colours in fruit and veggies represent different antioxidants?

Carly Schroeder’s health & beauty secrets

Actress Carly Schroeder (25) has been in the spotlight since the age of 3, starring in advertising roles as well as in TV shows, such as Port Charles and General Hospital, Dawson’s Creek and Lizzie McGuire and several films.  She’s a vegan, animal activist and extreme sports advocate, who spends much of her time climbing mountains as a free solo climber, when she’s not running marathons or in the water surfing or paddle boarding.  Here she shares her health and beauty secrets.

What does being naturally beautiful mean to you?

I’m an actress/model and I’m a free solo climber (no ropes) so, I’ve learned that “actress/model pretty” is never natural!  Natural is when I’m rock climbing.

Bronzed Earth-Goddess shoot with Melinda Walters

Our beautiful earth provides all the colours we could possibly want in nature. From the rich warm browns and reds of the earth, to greens of the trees and plants, blues, greens and greys of the sky and water and a multitude of colours of flowers and insects, there is so much natural colour to choose from.

Recently the hugely talented husband and wife team, Marcus and Melinda Walters,  shot this amazing bronzed goddess/earth-inspired shoot in a secret Sydney location, using our nature-inspired colour palette.

What was the idea behind the look/shoot?

We wanted to create a bronzed goddess, almost tribal look and chose a model accordingly who had a natural, earthy look with beautiful olive skin. I wanted her to radiate natural beauty and the Ere Perez collection accentuated that perfectly.

The clothing was from my own wardrobe and the jewellery was bits and bobs of vintage pieces that…
