Thanks Tarsha, Lilso78 (bellazon) transilated the interview.
Her son, Phyllon, was born in January, but Doutzen Kroes, world famous supermodel and L'Oreal star, won't miss her appearance at the next Cannes film festival.
- How did you get back in shape for your Cannes appearance?
Doutzen Kroes: I ate healthy, stopped eating sweets and worked out daily with my coach. Before my pregnancy, I was already working out a lot. But now, it's different, I worked out softly to make my muscle slimmer and longer. I did Pilates, stretching and I used Perfect Slim, a very fresh L'Oreal product. Because I really didn't want to look too muscular.
- Did you work out during your pregnancy?
I was doing super soft yoga once a week, with a coach, at home. That prepared my abs and my legs, I got back in shape really fast after giving birth thanks to these exercises.
- Being back in shape, is that an obsession?
No, but as a model of a big brand, I have to show a good image of me. I have to show that I'm taking care of myself, of my body, that I eat healthy, that I work out... and that I'm not anorexic. Anorexia is a real problem, not only in the fashion industry, but in the whole world. Fashion tells people what to do, what to wear, how to be and what to look like, so the fashion industry has to change, designers must show healthy and beautiful models to the world. Personnaly, I'm really proud to show that you can be a successful model without being anorexic. That is really important.
- What can we find in your fridge?
Just organic food! Before my pregnancy, I already thought about it. But, when I found out that I was pregnant, eating organic became an obsession.
- What is your secret to have such a beautiful skin after giving birth,
My mother! The first weeks after I gave birth, she was always around me to remind me to take care of myself, especially of my skin. I moisturized it a lot, this is what makes it look beautiful today.
- What is your favourite product now that you gave birth?
Tripe Active Jour by L'Oreal Paris, a great moisturizer! I use it every morning.
- How do you make your skin glow before a photoshoot?
As soon as a wake up, I wash my face with super cold water and to have a nice tan, I use Sublime Bronze.
- You take a great care of your skin, what about your baby's skin?
I apply on his skin L'Huile de Massage Douceur and La Creme Protectrice Visage by Weleda Bebe, both are 100% organics of course.
- If you had one "beauty advice" to give to your son when he'll grow up, what would it be?
You only have one skin. And it's not because he's a boy that he doesn't have to take care of it. So it will be washing + moisturizing in the morning and before he goes to sleep for him!
+ She will be at the MET ball tomorrow according to her twitter.
