Shares Advice For Her Daughter; Finding Balance

The 36th Annual Women's Way Powerful Voice Awards Honoring Christy Turlington

Iconic supermodel and celebrity mom Christy Turlington Burns sat down with the new issue of  Glam Belleza Latina to share her inspiring story, her beauty advice for her daughter and so much more!

Christy on the start of her nonprofit, Every Mother Counts:    “I suffered a life-threatening complication delivering Grace and discovered that similar issues often lead to death for hundreds of thousands of women around the world every year. When I learned that almost 90 percent of these mortalities are preventable, I committed to doing all I could to stop them.”

Christy on balancing her work and personal life:   “I don’t feel the word balance does most women justice. I prefer the word integrate, which means making a whole by bringing all parts of yourself together. I’m a mother, wife, advocate, athlete, model, daughter.… My greatest successes come when I bring all of who I am together.”

Christy on what Latin beauty means to her:   “Beauty essentially means the same thing in every culture—to reflect your own health, happiness, and authenticity outwardly.”

Christy’s beauty advice for her daughter:   “I’m determined to teach her through my choices that doing what you love is the path to happiness, and how you feel is more important than how you look.”
