Watching supermodels do their thing during Fashion Month and The Victoria's Secret Fashion Show looks like a non-stop, glamorous event, but some of the effects often involve jet lag, over-worked skin and stressful situations that cause breakouts. Yet, their skin still somehow manages to look amazing even backstage when they're makeup-free.
That's why we've done some research to help provide you with 5 skin care secrets that every model knows to follow – and now, you should too!
STEAM HELPS OPEN UP PORES
After weeks of walking the runways, supermodels like Olivia Hunter go makeup-free in their down time. Dirt and oil can get stuck in your pores after long days of shows with heavy makeup on, so models give their face a deep clean with an at-home facial steam. To do this, you can get a bowl of hot water with some mint tea and put a towel over your head while your face is over the bowl. This will clear everything out and allow your products to work their magic!
TOOTHPASTE A ZIT WHEN YOU'RE REALLY IN NEED
While getting rid of zits usually takes proper spot treatment products, if you're really stuck and need a quick fix, try one of Bella Hadid's skin care hacks. In an interview, the supermodel said that her sister (Gigi) has always told her to apply toothpaste onto the pimple for a quick fix. Be careful though, toothpaste can dry out your skin and make it more irritated, so don't overdo it!
A SKIN CARE ROUTINE IS KEY
With so much happening all day between shows and makeup changes, a majority of models must stick to a steady nighttime routine. Start off by taking your makeup off with a face wipe, then wash your face with a hydrating cleansing cream. Finish off with an exfoliating scrub and moisturizer.
After long days of applying all kinds of products, many models like to try natural remedies for their skin as well. Try making an avocado mask with honey to keep your skin moisturized and bright.
IT'S NOT ALWAYS WHAT GOES ON YOUR BODY, IT'S WHAT GOES IN IT
While a proper skin care routine is key to achieving great skin, focusing on what you put in your body is just as important. Many models focus on maintaining a proper diet, avoiding junk food like chips and other salty foods as much as possible to keep their skin youthful and fresh! Another important element to remember? Water, and tons of it.
