Kaia Gerber has been striving to remain ‘healthy on the inside’ during the coronavirus pandemic.

The 18-year-old model – who is the daughter of Cindy Crawford and Rande Gerber – has revealed she’s focused on her personal well-being during the current lockdown.

‘I’ve just really been taking the time to make sure I’m healthy on the inside,’ said the Malibu native.

‘In our minds, we keep going and going, and you don’t really have time to reflect on how your body is feeling and check back in. I’ve been very fortunate to use this time to check in with myself internally and that’s just been a really big part of my routine.’

Kaia – who is currently at home in Los Angeles amid the coronavirus lockdown – also revealed that her new campaign for Marc Jacobs Daisy has taken on a new meaning amid the pandemic.

In a campaign video for the brand, Kaia is seen laughing and joking in a field alongside other models.

She told Allure magazine: ‘Rewatching it now and seeing the field and open air makes you think about the things you take for granted.

‘We’re holding hands and running through a field – right now that seems so crazy and completely out of the question. It’s just made me feel grateful and really reminded me of that time.’

Meanwhile, Kaia previously insisted he doesn’t want to be labelled as a model.

She explained: ‘I always like to say, I model – but I am not a model. Because once you put ‘a’ or ‘an’ ahead of a title, it staples that to you … So, my advice to others who want to navigate new territories would be to not hesitate and just do what would make you proud. Never box yourself in.’ 

Gerber has also said TikTok makes her feel ‘old’.

She has yet to create a TikTok account – unlike many of her showbiz pals – to keep herself entertained during the lockdown.

She joked: ‘I haven’t personally gotten into TikTok yet because it makes me feel old.

‘Which is crazy, but I still don’t know how to use it [and] the dances are so hard. I have so much respect for the people that take the time to learn them – it’s a true art form.’

Kaia is also currently in the midst of a ‘pretty big break’ from her make-up and skin-care regimen.

However, the model continues to wear her favourite fragrance, even though she’s got nowhere to go.

She told Allure magazine: ‘I’ve been wearing [the fragrance] since I was 12 or 13.

‘I put it on – even though I’m not leaving the house – because it keeps me sane and makes me feel like I haven’t [strayed] too far away from my normal routine.’

Meanwhile, Kaia previously revealed she was ‘worried’ when she was named Model of the Year.

The catwalk star admitted the title left her panicking about what else she could still achieve, even though she’s still in her teens.

Kaia thought, ‘Oh my God, what do I do now?”

Kaia was just 10 years old when she made her modelling debut and didn’t even realize it was work.

She explained: ‘It was for Versace Kids and I loved it but I had no idea what I was doing.

‘I didn’t even realize it was a job. I was like, ‘This is work?” 

Gerber has been fostering puppies at her Malibu residence as she self-isolated during the coronavirus pandemic.

And on Thursday the teen showed her social media fans how she feeds the little fuzzy white puppy that she is currently taking care of. 

‘Morning bottle,’ the star said as she was seen out on a lush green lawn.

‘Thelabellefoundation helped me foster this little girl,’ she captioned a quick video that she shared on her Insta-Story.

In it, Gerber lounged back on a couch in an animal print bikini as the little pup took a nap just above her shoulders.
