"Running after the kids is my main exercise but I also do a mixture of pilates and barrecore training, as well as some tennis in the summer. I also enjoy long walks in the English countryside with my family and our dogs." - Claudia Shiffer
‘Claudia Schiffer is someone I have long admired for her strength, ambition and her drive to succeed. We share a passion for sustainable living and looking after our minds and bodies in a natural, holistic way and it makes me very happy that she is a long-time supporter of Daylesford. As we start the new year I asked Claudia to share a few insights into her routine and how moving to live in the countryside has changed her outlook on wellbeing.’
If you wake up feeling happy, calm, no aches or bad thoughts and you feel the same when you go to sleep then you are healthy!
I make an effort not to eat too much sugar, to choose organic and unprocessed food and to drink plenty of water. But if I go off-piste then I’ll break all the rules and I will feel it the next morning!
My staples include MANUKA HONEY and fresh ginger for when a cold is coming on. I also have Daylesford organic white peony tea for when I get up early before the kids and fresh mint for tea after dinner. I keep a supply of dates and sheep’s yoghurt for smoothies, almonds to make fresh almond milk and Booja Booja chocolates. I also love champagne truffles, Daylesford chicken pâté and LÉOUBE ROSÉ WINE. When I do go off-piste I love milk chocolate, red wine and cheese, Parma ham and salami, and all sorts of pâtés.

Christmas in particular is when I can’t resist tempting German and English Christmas delicacies and mulled wine. Once the New Year starts, so does the regime!
I only realised how calming and therapeutic the country was after moving there. It takes time for your body and mind to adjust. I used to live in New York and when I go there now it feels like a constant electric shock!
I do my best. I limit the use of plastic where possible and I think about what’s best for my children’s future. It’s a sad state the planet is in!
I’m a fan of BAMFORD SKINCARE, because it’s so natural. I mix the daily face cream with the brand’s different face oils and massage it into my skin. I have the same routine regardless of seasons.
Social is not a word to describe me! Social media has been a huge learning curve and something that I am still struggling to embrace. I have always been private and enjoyed playing ‘not being me’ when modelling. I’m giving it my best shot and I am constantly being laughed at by my kids!
