Kourtney Kardashian has made maintaining a healthy lifestyle for her family a priority over the last few years. The mother of three completely changed her outlook on health after having kids—and she is even influencing her siblings' lifestyle choices. Between working out regularly, sourcing organic foods for her family, and using natural beauty products, the reality star is truly passionate about living a quality life.
Kardashian, who is now Manuka Doctor’s global beauty brand ambassador, shares details about her lifestyle overhaul with us.
Why is Manuka Doctor something you love so much? KOURTNEY KARDASHIAN: I have loved Manuka honey for years now. I started using it because our production crew would eat the honey all the time. Once I had kids, I started really wanting to do natural stuff. I kind of stopped taking medicine and just started changing a lot about my lifestyle. I posted about Manuka honey on my app when it launched. I always do a "Good for You" glossary about different ingredients. Manuka Doctor had seen it because I put Manuka honey. They were looking for a brand ambassador for their skin care, which I love. I love that it has really simple, natural ingredients. I love the oils—they’re my favorite.
I love that, on your app, you did a caramel apple recipe and you used Manuka honey. KK: I use it in so many things. I’ve been using it for years. I have this avocado pudding every morning that has avocado, Manuka honey, and milk. I have tea pretty much every day and I put Manuka honey in that. There are so many different ways that I use it all the time. It really went along with my lifestyle, which I love because I’m really busy. I’m not into doing stuff unless I’m really passionate about it.
What are three beauty items that are always in your purse? KK: I love Manuka lip. It has bee venom so it’s a natural way to plump your lips. I love those eye gels that you put under your eyes—especially when I’m tired and traveling. There’s this brand called Skyn from Iceland and those are my favorite ones. I usually keep Chanel powder in my purse for touch ups.
What’s your fitness routine? You work out with Don-A-Matrix, right? KK: Yes, I love him. We’re always switching it up. I try to work out six days a week.
How do you manage that with kids? KK: I feel like it gives me energy and kills my anxiety, which allows me to be a better mom. I feel like I have really made it a priority without feeling guilty. When I first had kids, I couldn’t do that without feeling guilty. I would only go on walks with them. I felt guilty working out without them unless Scott was with them and I went for a 20-minute run. Now, every day I take an hour to really work out. Some weekends when we’re just hanging out at home they’ll just come outside and I’ll run up and down the hills in my backyard.
I always think that you’re the most “green” one of your sisters.Which one of your sisters has taken notes from you the most? KK: Khloe will usually listen to my food tips. But, I recently was at Kim’s house and I was giving her notes on her refrigerator. We had a little slumber party and I was giving her a bunch of notes. I heard her change a bunch of things that I said—suggestions of organic and this and that—so I was really excited.
