Estela “Ellie” Ottaway — Model
As a full-time model, Ellie Ottaway reaches frequently for activities and people who will keep her grounded—most importantly, that’s family. “They are the only ones who understand me completely and who remind me who I am when I sometimes forget,” she says, adding that she’s always been a writer and songwriter on the side. “I think it’s important for every person to have a passion set aside from work to stay somewhat sane in the crazy world,” she adds.
Naturally, Ottaway is very focused on both looking and feeling good. She mixes up her cardio routine each day, getting in at least an hour of running, boxing, or biking. As for her flawless skin, she’s a fan of coconut oil, saying she uses it anywhere and everywhere. Plus, she’s got another simple tactic: “I try to keep my face clean and moisturized all the time. Also, I am always drinking water!”
