Meet Aleisha Scanlon, the down-to-earth model who was born and bred in Kununurra, Western Australia in the Kimberley’s. We were lucky enough to be a part of Aleisha's first swimwear shoot earlier this month, the campaign was breathtaking! While Aleisha has been creating waves in the modelling world, she effortlessly embodies the pursuit of a balanced and fulfilling life. In our conversation, we uncover Aleisha's simple yet impactful well-being principles and paint a picture of her ideal weekend retreat.
I just started to explore cold water immersion therapy. Which has overall, improved my well-being.
You absolutely killed today's shoot! We still can’t believe it was your first swim shoot! Did anything or anyone inspire you to pursue a modelling career? How long have you been in the industry?
Aw thanks so much! From a young age I always used to dream of being a model and had family members pushing me to do it. I’ve been modelling for 4 years.
You mentioned you lived in Melbourne for a few years! Was this choice influenced by modelling? Did you grow up in Western Australia?
I actually moved to Melbourne for uni straight after school and then 2 years later got into modelling. I was born and bred in Kununurra, Western Australia in the Kimberley’s.
Your body is incredible, so tone! Staying fit and healthy is clearly important to you! Do you follow a strict exercise routine?
I’m quite the opposite of staying fit and healthy haha I should probably work out more but I’m pretty lucky with my genetics! I’ve also come from a sporting background so I guess that has helped me keep toned.
You have such a calm energy about you! Do you incorporate any wellness practices into your weekly routine? Any rituals you can share to maintain your overall well being?
I’m actually quite the stress head outside of modelling but when shooting I’m able to switch off and go into work mode. Traditionally, I haven’t had any rituals but have just started to explore cold water immersion therapy. Which has overall, improved my well-being.
When you have an ideal weekend to relax and unwind, what activities or destinations top your list?
I enjoy being outdoors with my boyfriend and our dog. My boyfriend has a farm just outside of Albany, so I spend most of my time doing a bit of cattle work, going to the beach and things like that.
You are such a natural beauty! Although we all have our go-to beauty products…..is there a beauty product essential to your daily routine?
I don’t really wear makeup outside of work. However, I was having trouble with my skin for a while and found that using baby soap to wash my face has worked a treat lol.
Have you travelled much? Do you have a travel bucket list, and if you do, what are some of the top destinations or experiences?
I actually haven’t been outside of Australia but when I do go, I really want to have a hot girl summer in Europe (obviously with my boyfriend).
You looked insane in every piece we shot today! Did you have a favourite INC swim piece?
Aw thank you! I really liked Clementine The 90’s Duo Crop & 90’s Duo Pant.
