For most of us, a good start to the day means not pressing “snooze” so many times you end up late to work.
Not for Jodhi Meares, though. The Tigerlily founder revealed in an interview with Harpers Bazaar that her day starts at 5am each day.
“I like to rise with the sun – there’s a certain sanity which comes with getting up at first light,” she says.
“I like to walk to my 6.30am yoga class at North Bondi and that can take around 55 minutes. I’m like Forrest Gump – I walk as much as I can.”
Before participating in a vinyasa style yoga class, Meares drinks warm water and lemon to “cleanse” her blood, kidneys and liver. “When I was 26 I did a pretty full-on detox and it’s a habit that’s stuck,” she says. (Post continues after gallery.)
Once her class has finished at 7:30am (so… when you and I are just waking up?) it’s time to grab a pressed juice or a chai tea — Meares explains she gave up coffee “years ago” — and maybe a brekkie of wholegrain toast with smashed avocado or an egg white omelette.
Meares revealed she’s a big fan of supplements including Vitamin B1 for energy, silica for hair and nails, a multivitamin, probiotic and fish oil.
“If I’m about to get on a plane and need a massive immunity boost, I see my doctor for a course of Vitamin C that’s administered intravenously. You have to sit there for an hour, once a week for six weeks, so it requires commitment, but it’s amazing,” she revealed.
Then it’s time for a shower — or maybe even two. Evidently Meares is all about squeaky-clean hair.
“I’m mad for clean hair, so I jump in the shower and usually end up washing it once or even twice a day,” Meares says. (Post continues after gallery.)
Her skincare routine is relatively minimal and straightforward. “Cetaphil is my skincare staple and then I’ll use oils like jojoba to moisturise. Anything with chemicals I steer clear of,” she says.
“Occasionally I like a bit of microdermabrasion to buff away dull skin. I’m not a huge makeup girl, so I’ll slap on a tinted moisturiser with sunscreen and maybe perfume. I’m obsessed with Gypsy Water by Byredo Parfums at the moment: lots of yummy amber, sandalwood and juniper berries.”
