The secret of former supermodel Helena Christensen to keep herself crazy at 51? Morning baths in the frozen river!
Raise your hand if you don't know the saying “If you want to look beautiful, you have to suffer a little”. Here, the former Danish supermodel Helena Christensen, born in 1968, took it literally and it is probably that, obviously combined with a lucky genetic predisposition, the secret of her eternal youth. Seen and considered, (social media testify) that at 51 (52 in December 2021) has the body and skin of a little girl. As beautiful as when, in the 90s, she paraded for Versace, Armani, Dolce & Gabbana and other famous designers.
Today Helena who lives in a beautiful house surrounded by nature in the Catskill Mountains, mountain range of the eastern United States, (part of the Appalachian ranges), in the state of New York. Where she has regained possession of natural rhythms and styles, such as going to sleep and waking up very early and starting the day with long walks and swims in the waters near her home, in any season and in any climatic condition. On the other hand, Helena, as a good Dane, is not someone who suffers from the cold.
One of the latest videos posted on her Instagram account, dating back to early January 2021, sees her plunge into the icy waters of the river that flows next to her beautiful home.
Today was the best day to wake up… ~ all covered in thick soft snow and the golden sun casting long shadows across the trees, all dressed in white. The river, painted brown from the mud and sand raised during a recent storm, was still and cold, perfect for a glorious winter dip 🧜🏼♀️💙❄️ #catskills
