Lara Worthington is the owner of one of Australia’s most recognisable faces. And today – 17 years, three children and several international moves after she first shot to fame as a teen model – it’s never looked better. Genuinely.
Her secret to that ethereal glow (see also: her Instagram)? A simple skincare routine she can “actually manage to do… every morning and night”, courtesy of Aotearoa (New Zealand)-born brand Emma Lewisham, of which she’s an ambassador (and close friend of its eponymous founder).
Here, Worthington shares a slice of her (sometimes chaotic) life, the Emma Lewisham product that changed everything for her skin and the best piece of beauty advice she’s ever received…
“I like to keep my beauty routine pared back, so I can actually manage to do it every morning and night.”

Describe your morning and evening skincare routine…
"The mornings are usually pretty full-on sorting out the kids. I try to drink as much water as I can when I first wake up, and then I will just help the boys get ready for the day because then I can do what I need to do. If I’m leaving the house, I might wash my face if I feel like it needs it; otherwise, I will just use SPF.
“I try to work out every day; I like heated Pilates and hot yoga. My skin is the best when my whole body feels in sync. At night, I will let my phone die and take a hot bath if I can. I spend more time on my skin then too; I use the Emma Lewisham Illuminating Oil Cleanser and Skin Reset Serum, then alternate between the Supernatural Face Crème Riche or the Supernatural Sleeping Mask to lock it all in.”
We hear you were using Emma Lewisham before you became the ambassador for the brand. What was it that initially attracted you?
“I was one of the first people in Australia to use Emma’s products. I always admired the brand’s ethos and loved how it worked with my skin. It naturally evolved into a partnership. Our values align really nicely with each other.
"Emma is incredibly smart and well-researched; she knows the market and her business inside and out. I learn a lot from Emma. We both have a strong passion for the environment and giving back – it’s what we bond most about, I think.
“I can literally ask her almost anything about skincare and life, and she’ll have the perfect answer. I’ve used the Skin Reset Serum for years to help treat my pigmentation, and I love the Supernatural Sleeping Mask – it feels like a facial.”
“It’s this special family time I cherish and look forward to. Life is so fast; it’s nice to slow down and take it all in.”
