Miranda Kerr Reveals She's Had a Leech Facial (and She Kept the Leeches!)
There’s no beauty trick too adventurous for Miranda Kerr.
The 34-year-old model joined Gwyneth Paltrow for a star-studded panel at the actress’ In Goop Health summit in Culver City, California, on Saturday and opened up about trying leech therapy.
“I’ve had a leech facial,” Kerr said, noting that she enlisted the help of the leeches for her tailbone as well. “I kept the leeches, they’re in my koi pond. You’re not allowed to reuse them and if you don’t take them home then she kills them and I didn’t like that idea.”
Paltrow, 44, who is no stranger to trying unconventional beauty treatments herself, remarked: “Wow! I thought I was bats— crazy!”
“It’s adventurous,” Kerr replied. “Health is wealth. They’ve been doing leech therapy for thousands of years.”
Although Kerr said she’s a big fan of Paltrow’s lifestyle brand — “I’ve tried every GOOP thing and more” — Kerr boasts a beauty powerhouse of her own: KORA Organics.
She launched the organic skin-care line in 2009, according to Vanity Fair.

“Something that has been really powerful for me is Kundalini yoga,” Kerr said. “It’s a different type of yoga and it includes a lot of breath work and chanting and meditation. It energetically invigorates me. Without that, I don’t know that I’d be able to do everything that I do.”
She added: “Everyone has a different thing that fulfills [them] … If you find what works for you as an individual, make sure you do those things.”
