Co-Founder of WelleCo opens up on how she changed aspects of her life in her 40s and explains that no matter how old you are looking your best is about living a balanced, healthy life.Elle Macpherson explains that she when she was younger as a model numbers seem to mean everything. However, now not so much.

“When I was a young model, it was all about physical appearance. But today, I’m less concerned about the number on the scale or what dress size I wear. I’m not defined by those things. So I focus on how I feel.” Elle explains that what was working a decade before may not be the case now and that is a reality that women everywhere can relate to. “ I was in my late 40s and noticed I was lacking energy, I wasn’t getting a good night’s sleep, and my adrenals were overloaded. I thought I was living a healthy lifestyle—complete with exercise and an array of supplements—but I was out of balance. What used to work for me in my 20s wasn’t working for me anymore.”

So what did this ageless beauty do? She witched to a whole-food, plant based diet and began taking a supplements which was WelleCo’s first product. Along with what she does on the inside Elle began to pick up different types of workouts from yoga to Pilates. She lastly explains that beauty is more than just being skin deep but, does come from within.
