Rachel Hunter’s Tour of Beauty

New Zealander Rachel Hunter, once one of the world’s most-photographed supermodels, is now on a quest to discover the secrets of lasting beauty, great health and extraordinary longevity in diverse cultures around the world, on her television show, Rachel Hunter’s Tour of Beauty, which makes its US premiere.

With many people looking to the New Year as a time to create some new, positive and healthy habits, Auckland-born Hunter, 46, offers some of the most eye-opening tips and tricks she learned on her “tour of beauty” around the globe.

From superfoods to anti-aging treatments to spirituality, Hunter offers up some of her favourite discoveries for looking good and feeling great in 2016 and beyond.

“In many of the places I went, I was introduced to so-called ‘superfoods’ – that is, foods that are nutrient rich and low calorie. They are also superior sources of antioxidants and essential nutrients,” Hunter explains. “In Dubai, I learned nigella seeds, or black cumin as most people in the West know it, pack a powerful nutritional punch and are said to be a remedy for ‘everything but death’. In Dubai, I was introduced to the benefits of camel’s milk. It has 10 times the iron of cow’s milk and is surprisingly delicious.

“Wherever I went, I found a reoccurring theme: The real key to beauty, health and longevity is in your own head. Whether it was learning to meditate in India or celebrating family and friendships in Greece, China and Brazil, radiant beauty and great health were directly related to inner peace and living a joyful life. And that’s something we can all strive for in the New Year.”
