“Beachwear and Beachbody “ By Nadja Atwal

 Our former cover star Monica Hansen tells us her tips to navigate through this summer in shape and in style. The former top model has become THE new star of swimwear design again. Sports Illustrated chose several of her designs for their new Swimsuit Issue.

NA: What are the must haves this summer for making a big splash on the beach or by the pool?
MH: My Must Haves this summer for making a big splash at the beach or the pool are: Dr. Garth Fisher’s new sunscreen product DocBlock, Evian water spray mist bottle,  Virgin Coconut oil for hair and skin, Beach towel by Mayde towels in Australia, and of course some of our favorite swimsuit items from our collection.

NA: You are a designer but still have your supermodel figure and pose in top magazines. Please share some workout and diet tips so we all can look a bit better this summer.
MH: To stay in shape my tips are to obviously stick to a healthy diet with smaller sized portions, but since we all want to enjoy a bigger meal, sometimes, I strongly advice  to eat any heavier foods earlier in the day. Keep it light in the evenings! I eat a lot of salads and fish, although I do occasionally eat chicken or steak, and yes,  I try to drink a lot of water. As far as exercise goes, I do some light weight training and cardio at the gym but the thing I really focus on is mega pilates 3 to 4 times per week. It’s a game changer.

NA: Your favorite drink while being cool by the pool?
MH: My favorite poolside drink is a cool refreshing mojito

NA: Your favorite hang out in Miami for beach and pool time?
MH: When I am in Miami my favorite places to hang out for beach and pool time are the Edition Hotel, the Faena and the Hyde Beach Club at the SLS South Beach

NA: What skin care do you like for both skin protection in the sun and aftercare?
MH: For protecting my skin when I go out in the sun I love Dr Garth Fisher’s new sunscreen called DocBlock.  And for post-sun aftercare I like products by Dr. Obagi.

NA: Where and when can the Miami crowd see your designs in action next ?

MH: We will be showing our collection in a runway show at the Funkshion main tent as well as in the Cabana Trade Show.  Swim week is the biggest swimwear trade show/convention in the world and will take place this year from July 12-16th in South Beach Miami. So see you then!
