She said: ‘Becoming a mother changes everything. Beauty and self-care go out the window sometimes.
Life changer: Adriana Lima, shown in February in Beverly Hills, California, has admitted that motherhood changed ‘everything’ in her life.
‘But as my two daughters have gotten older, I’ve realized that they copy a lot of what I do and my habits, and it’s important for me to make sure they’re copying good ones.’
Adriana is happy to allow her kids to experiment with make-up and she also seeks ‘positive mental wellness through meditation’.
She told Vogue India magazine: ‘I let them experiment with my make-up, masks and creams, as many kids do, but I try to teach them to love the skin they’re in and eat healthily for their bodies and to also practise positive mental wellness through meditation.’

The former Victoria’s Secret Angel thinks the industry can still do more to ‘send a message of representation’ to the world.
She said: ‘I am happy that it has become more inclusive of people of different races and sizes, but of course there is still a long way to go.
‘My hope is that the industry sends a message of representation. I want any young girl or boy to be able to open up a magazine or website or Instagram, however they view fashion, and feel represented in a beautiful and positive way.’
