This former Miss Australia got real about what it takes to look like a beauty queen
Former Miss Australia Jesinta Campbell has revealed exactly what it takes to look like an international beauty queen.
The 24-year-old from Sydney is one of the big names preparing to walk for the exclusive David Jones showcase and she said she ups her workouts to six days a week in order to get runway ready.
Her gym routine is a mixture of boxing, pilates and strength training but the standout moment in her regime is her bedtime. She said she's usually tucked up by 7:30pm with fiancé, Australian Football League player Lance Franklin, after they make an early dinner.
As for diet, she eliminates alcohol and sugar for at least four weeks before the show and focuses on protein and vegetables.
"The biggest challenge with a lot of people's fitness is they get really bored and just do the same thing over and over," she said.
"Over a four-week period you do feel [the extra sessions] and you start to remember the times you only did four to five a week and thought you were doing it easy," she told Fairfax Media.
"Everyone should be able to at least run five kilometres. Your joints are better, you get less aches and pains. Fitness is a holistic thing, it shouldn't be something that you do every now and then."
Campbell, who came fifth in the Miss Universe pageant in 2010, also said she uses infrared saunas to keep her skin clear. Despite recently signing with IMG, she recently said her focus is on conquering Australia and she has no intention of moving abroad.
"My primary focus is Australia," she explained. "There is so much going on for me here. I've got the two shows for David Jones, they can be pretty busy, especially spring/summer - a lot of training goes into that one.
