Sydney-based entrepreneur and founder of Sweaty Betty PR is open and honest when it comes to her beauty and wellness routine. Here, she runs us through the tricks and treatments that fill her little black book every month.
Roxy Jacenko is famous for her honest, no-nonsense demeanour, so it’s no surprise that when it comes to beauty and wellness, the 40-year-old is happy to share her secrets – and that includes Botox. “Being an open book isn’t for everyone, but for me it’s what I live by. If I do something I don’t feel the need to deny it. I don’t worry about what other people think,” Jacenko tells Body+Soul. “There’s not much left original on this chassis!”
Here in an exclusive chat, the Sydney entrepreneur opens her little black book…
Facial at Jocelyn Petroni in Woollahra once a month.
Botox at Face by SM Paddington every three months.
Colour with Jake Oba from Edwards & Co in my home salon every three weeks.
Extensions using Showpony Hair Extensions removed and replaced every five weeks.
Blow dry with Jake or Di from Koda Cutters in Bondi every third day.
I had veneers done to fix two broken front teeth after an accident, so am OCD about my teeth. I like to visit Fadi Yassmin for a clean every three months to make sure my bottom teeth match my top teeth.
Dazzle Dry Manicure at Bella Nails Double Bay, it’s basically non-toxic and instant-dry once a week. Shellac Pedicure at Bella Nails every three weeks.
Brows shape the face, so I love to see Gloria or Amy at Amy Jean in Double Bay for a shape and tint. I don’t tattoo my brows, I stick to tinting every three weeks.
After being treated for breast cancer in 2016 I am scared to subject my body to any more beams or radiation so I choose to wax over laser hair removal. I visit Venustus in Paddington every month.
HEALTH and WELLNESS
I have an at-home gym with Technogym equipment, a Pilates reformer and Peloton bikes and treadmill I use three times a week with my personal trainer Matt Gurney.
I started Physio last year when I fell off a horse and fractured my pelvis and hip – it made the recovery so much quicker, I have kept seeing Bernadette monthly – she is incredible!
We have a Sunlighten Infrared Sauna at home. I love it, but only get the time to enjoy it monthly.
I am very specific about what supplements I take and do a fair bit of research before starting any. For the past 12 months I have been taking AM+PM Formula Multivitamin, $59.95, at JS Health as I’m a horrid sleeper and have found its made a noticeable difference. Now I get six hours.
I eat smartly but don’t starve myself like I used to! Now I am at 40 it’s harder and harder to shed weight so I think about my meals carefully.
I love using the LED Facial Mask, $49, at Lux Skin twice a week before bed, its super easy to use with three different settings – I stick with the red light for collagen and elasticity.
I swear by Elle Effect Tan, I either have it sprayed on but mostly apply myself. For my face, I spray on Three Warriors Face Tan Aqua Mist, $32.95, at Three Warriors every third evening for a healthy glow.
