Kourtney Kardashian Shares Her Beauty Secrets with New You
Posted On Jul 03, 2017
I love the Kardashians, so much so, that I’m known as the Kardashian writer at New You. So when I was invited to the Manuka Doctor launch with new global ambassador, Kourtney Kardashian, my mouth hit the floor. I couldn’t believe it; my dreams of hanging out with a Kardashian were starting to come true.
I should have put two and two together when I received the email inviting me to “cocktails with their new celebrity ambassador.” I knew that Kourtney had been a fan of the brand for years and also lives a very holistic lifestyle. I also knew that Manuka Doctor products contain natural ingredients, Manuka honey and purified bee venom, which fight aging, blemishes, and provide plump. It was a match made in holistic heaven!
I had the chance to chat with the 37-year-old mom of three at the lavish Baccarat Hotel in New York City last month. In addition to chatting with Kourt, my dream of making an appearance on Keeping Up With the Kardashians came true too because they were filming at the event (just call me Kami). I chatted with the reality star about all things beauty, health, and Manuka!
New You: What is the old tale your makeup artist told you about Manuka Honey?
Kourtney Kardashian: They said in Santería Witchcraft, they would put honey all over their bodies to attract a man and so she was joking that we should try it. But I was like, I don’t need people following me around. I just want to try it because it sounds like a good body wash. It sounds cool.
New You: Have you tried the actual Manuka Honey?
Kourtney Kardashian: I’ve actually been using it for years. I put it in my Avocado shake every morning. I drink tea every day, so I put it in my tea, and when we are getting sick in our house, we just eat it. Like spoonfuls of it because it helps you. I give it to my kids too. I’ve been doing that for years. I learned it from our production crew that whenever they were getting sick, they would keep eating these spoonfuls of honey. It’s amazing. I just love how that honey tastes. I’ve been using it, and I posted on my app about the honey and how it’s good for you and all this stuff about it. And then they were looking for a skin care ambassador for the Manuka Doctor skincare and then it just worked out perfectly.
New You: Have you been using the Manuka Doctor beauty products for years?
Kourtney Kardashian: The honey, yes. I just started using the oils. I put the oils on my eyes and my hands. I love the Gold Dust Firming Serum. Under makeup, it kind of gives you a little glow, really subtle. The ApiRefine Illusionist Rapid Lift Mask is great for when I’m traveling or just have a crazy week and I’m tired, like just a little extra step to do. It’s good.
New You: What makeup product can’t you live without?
Kourtney Kardashian: Concealer. I have this Lorac Concealer stick (Lorac Double Feature Concealer and Highlighter) that’s a concealer stick on one end, and the other end is a creamy highlighter. I just feel like if I had to run out the door in two seconds, I would use this to cover up. You can just make yourself look like a whole different person in two minutes with it.
