Being a model means part of your job description is having beautiful skin, so if we’re taking notes from anyone’s beauty regime it’s going to be the supermodels we see every day on Instagram. Plus, they have access to some of the best dermatologists, facialists, and skincare products in the beauty biz. And while you may argue that they can photoshop and edit good skin – sure, you can get rid of a pimple – a truly radiant glow cannot be edited! Here are some of the essential skincare rules the industry’s top supermodels couldn’t survive without:
Mist Regularly to Keep Your Skin Hydrated
When some of the most beautiful women in the world tell you they never leave their house without this skincare essential, you listen. Facial mists are seriously under-appreciated: a lot of people regard them as a beauty luxury, rather than a necessity. But we’re here to set the record straight: facial mists are the easiest way to keep your skin hydrated on-the-go as they’re packed with moisturizing ingredients and vitamins to nourish, hydrate and protect your skin. We like to use them after we cleanse, between skincare layers if our skin is extra parched, and whenever our skin is looking a little dull or dehydrated. It also goes without saying that drinking plenty of water (at least two liters a day) is also a great way to keep your skin hydrated. No amount of mist can compensate for dehydrated skin!
Remove Your Makeup Properly
It’s common knowledge you should never fall asleep with your makeup on, but models take this to the next level: they ALWAYS double cleanse, and when they say they never fall asleep with makeup on, they mean it. Double cleansing is the K-Beauty cleansing ritual that begins with a cleansing oil to remove makeup, oil, and SPF, and is followed by a water-based cleanser, like a foam, cream or gel cleanser to remove lingering bacteria, dirt or debris in your pores. Supermodels Karlie Kloss and Adriana Lima also never workout with their makeup on, as they say whenever they do it triggers a breakout.
Never Skip Your Serum Step
Serums should be a part of everyone’s daily regime, but most people don’t know the difference between an essence, serum or oil – understandable, skincare is a whole universe you can explore! And although serums typically have a higher price tag, serums deliver a higher concentration of powerful skincare ingredients, which makes them more effective at targeting different skin concerns. Plus, as they’re so potent you only need to use a small amount each day.
Use A Jade Roller Or Gua Sha To Depuff
We know a jade roller may seem like a tool that’s true power is its ability to rack up likes on Instagram, but we promise once you add it to your skincare routine you’ll never look back. Using a Gua Sha or jade roller is a supermodel fave, and it saves from morning puffiness every day. By adding one of these tools to your routine, you can boost circulation and lymphatic drainage, which helps remove toxins and drain excess fluid from your face. Always apply a moisturizer or serum before rolling, as this gives the tool some slip so it doesn’t tug your skin, plus it helps your products penetrate more effectively.
Always Use Sunscreen
The truth is, 90% of how your skin ages is within your control, which is why it’s essential to protect your skin from the sun’s UVA and UVB rays. Not only do both contribute to skin cancer but the formation of fine lines, wrinkles, dark spots, uneven tone, and hyperpigmentation. Wearing SPF 30 with 5-star UVA rating during the summer months is essential, and keep it up for the winter months too. Make sure you apply it twenty minutes before going into the sun as it takes this amount of time to activate.
