Our favorite supermodels have their favorite skincare essentials too. They have their own holy grail products that they use every day to keep their skin healthy and glowing. Some of these essentials and products save them from skin trouble such as dryness and oily skin.
Cleansers and make-up removers
Ten out of ten models say that removing make-up is always a need and a necessity. Make-up tends to contribute to skin aging and maturity, however, wearing make-up is unavoidable especially if you are always under the limelight. So, the best thing that you can effectively do is to thoroughly cleanse your face and remove makeup as soon as you can. Models Lea Mohr and Ruby Campbell say they immediately rid their face of make-up as soon as they get home, and shares to never ever sleep with makeup on. Our favorite supermodels’ loved cleansers include those from Bioderma, Neutrogena, and Kiehl’s. They choose cleansers and wipes that effectively clean their face without getting their skin dry and without stripping off natural oils.
Madison Whittaker says that the most important thing that you can do for your skin is to keep it moisturized. Stress and constant heavy makeup application can lead to dryness, and dry skin does not look healthy and attractive at all. Many supermodels start their day with moisturizing their skin. Having moisturized skin is essential to keep it looking dewy, healthy, and glowing. Some supermodels like Cara Delevingne use face oils to moisturize. Some of the best moisturizers loved by models are those from Nuxe, Nivea, and Kora Organics by another supermodel, Miranda Kerr. Lip balms are also a necessity to hydrate healthier lips.
According to WebMD, exposure to the sun causes most of the wrinkles and age spots on our faces. It causes most of the skin changes that we think of as a regular part of aging. Over time, the sun’s ultraviolet light damages the fibers in the skin called elastin. With the many damages the sun can do to your face, it is vital that you protect it. La Roche-Posay, La Mer, and L’Oréal are some of the supermodels’ favorite sunscreen brands.
Face mists are great for a quick perk up and hydration for every supermodel out there. These facial mists work great when you’re in a hurry like most supermodels are. During big shows and endless photo shoots, they use facial mists mostly from Caudalie and Mario Badescu, to wake their tired skin up. And many swear by how they work effectively.
SK-II and Laneige masks are cult favorites, especially for many models. Masks work effectively when used at night and does more than moisturizers and serums. Frequently, masks are used as treatment and for an extra boost for fatigued skin.
Exfoliation is important. It is done to remove dead skin cells and reward yourself with new radiant skin. Exfoliating can be done just once or twice a week and will already do wonders for your skin. Exfoliators or exfoliants from Dermalogica, AESOP, and St. Ives are the ones commonly used by super models. Both Anna Cristina and Willow Hand loves and gives significant value to exfoliation.
