The Spanish actor has cemented her status as an authority on health, wellness and mental strength, publishing her first book, Strong: How to Eat, Move and Live With Strength and Vitality, and contributing to husband Chris Hemsworth’s wellbeing app, Centr.
And while we now know how the mother-of-three keeps her fitness levels up (if you missed it, be sure to pick up our current issue where you can read more about that), we couldn't wait to hear how she gives her skin that incredible glow.
Unsurprisingly, Pataky's beauty routine is low-key and considered, with a focus on quality ingredients. "Every morning after my shower, I moisturise my body with the Hemp Seed Hydrating Body Moisturiser from Swisse Skincare and I make sure I apply a cream containing at least SPF50 to my face," she says.
And for the evenings? Elsa's night-time routine is equally effortless. "Before going to bed, I make sure I cleanse my face, removing my make-up thoroughly."
She then opts for the Swisse Bio-Retinol Renewing Night Cream, which boasts bakuchiol - a natural alternative to vitamin A – and active ingredients such as polypeptides, which provide age-defying skin benefits while being free from harmful chemicals.
Elsa has been a devotee of Swisse Skincare since partnering with the brand two years ago. In addition to her regular routine products, she highlights the Argan Revitalising eyecream and the Argan Youthful Facial Oil as two of her favourites, thanks to their skin-hydrating properties and focus on preventing signs of premature ageing.
The Swisse Skincare Hemp Seed Hydrating Body Moisturiser is formulated with raw, cold-pressed, 100% Australian hemp seed oil, and infused with macadamia seed oil and shea butter to replenish and restore moisture to the skin.
Beauty from within
Elsa has previously attributed her glowing skin to a combination of diet, hydration, nutrition, a skincare and supplement regime, and of course, the luck of good genetics.
For energy and vitality, Swisse Ultivite Multivitamin helps nourish the body, fill nutritional gaps and support energy production. For beauty-inside-out support, Swisse Ultiboost Hair, Skin and Nails vitamins support radiant skin, glossy hair and collagen production.
It’s no secret that Elsa leads a busy life, and requires an energy boost for times when she’s on the go. Ultiboost Mega B+, assists with energy production and a healthy stress response, to support a busy lifestyle.
"Swisse is a brand that sources high quality ingredients and is inspired by science - they explore the globe to find world-class ingredients to create their products," she says. "I have a strong relationship with nature and science is important to me, so this makes me really connected with Swisse itself."
