8 Supermodels reveal their beauty secrets
From Naomi Campbell's age-defying tape to Gigi Hadid's home cure for acne, take a look at what these ladies use to keep their beautiful selves always perfect!
Supermodels are known for their gorgeous and smoking hot bodies, but what is the next common element in all of them? Yes, great skin and spot-on perfect makeup.
Now for the most smooth makeup application, beauty experts say that your canvas must be clean, which means that a person must have good, healthy skin.
Unlike the rest of us, these supermodels are always under heavy makeup. And I mean heavy - layers of foundation, concealer, and primers along with very pigmented eyeshadows and not to mention non-budging lip colors. So how is it that they maintain such flawless, also transparent skin?
Well, here are 8 supermodels who shared their beauty regime with their fans and it'll make you change your routine instantly!
1. Miranda Kerr
Kerr swears by the fruit Noni. The former Victoria's Secret (VS) Angel says it is the perfect way to detox for her. Noni juice is derived from the fruit of the Morinda citrifolia tree indigenous to Southeast Asia and Australasia. It belongs to the coffee family of plants.
"I’ve been drinking noni for the past 12 years. It has 177 vitamins and minerals and is a potent antioxidant. It’s great for healing. If I had sunburn or pimples, I used to soak a cotton ball in it and put it on my skin. That’s why it made sense to use noni as a key ingredient in the skincare products."
2. Martha Hunt
VS Angel Hunt swears by the age-old skin elixir - water. She also loves fresh juices to keep her skin problem free. Most beauty gurus and your dermatologist will have told you this at some point in your life since you started paying extra attention to your beauty.
"Definitely staying hydrated. I'm trying to drink a lot more water and even just fresh juices, I think it makes a big difference. But I think that extra vitamin kick, it really makes you feel good."
3. Rosie Huntington-Whiteley
Rosie told Vogue Australia her body secret is to fake a tan. "I have a bath or a shower beforehand and give my body a good scrub and get rid of any of the dead skin cells and then just put a towel on the bathroom floor and spritz it on. Start from my feet all the way up, all the way up to my face."
4. Naomi Campbell
The iconic model's beauty hack is a bit unorthodox. Her signature glow from within is a result of shimmer, of course, expertly applied to the eyes, plus the power of a feel-good accessory. In Campbell’s case, likely calls for a flash of gold or jewel-toned sparkle that lights up the skin further.
She told Vogue that the secret to her evergreen youthful elasticity. Campbell had three words: “I use tape.” Who would have guessed that?
5. Giselle Bundchen
She likes going au naturale when it comes to her mane - her super famous beach bum waves. Saying bye to your hairbrush is what you have been missing. "After I apply conditioner, I pass my fingers through my hair and let it dry naturally," she tells Brydie. "Every once in awhile, I comb my hair in the shower, but I don’t comb or brush after that."
Another surprising beauty secret: Bündchen says she shares lotion, shampoo, conditioner, and toothpaste with her quarterback husband, Tom Brady. Stars—they’re just like us.
6. Gigi Hadid
Gigi believes in the anthem, less is more, when it comes to her skincare routine she swears by St. Ives Fresh Apricot scrub, says Instyle. This drugstore buy is a popular staple in a many women’s routines—including Gigi’s. "This is what I use to wash my face," the model says. "The exfoliating beads get the blood circulating and leave my skin feeling clean and soft."
Another hack she swears by is toothpaste for acne! "My mom always taught me to put toothpaste on pimples to dry them out at night. I do that all the time. I don't use anything fancy when I get a pimple. I just put it on at night before I go to sleep. Then I take toilet paper, get it wet, put it on my finger and press it over the top, and peel [the excess paper off] around my finger. It dries kind of like a paper-mâché and it holds in the moisture and the toothpaste. In the morning, you just put a wet towel on it, and it all comes off," she says. So simple!
7. Karlie Kloss
Karlie Kloss loves her moisturizers, she told Instyle. "I’m all about the skincare. When my face feels dehydrated I love Dr. Hauschka Rose Day Cream (£29.50) – it’s so rich. Because I travel a lot, taking care of my hands and nails is one of my biggest things. Deborah Lippmann has this really lovely cuticle oil (£18). As I have quite fine hair, I like to use a bit of L’Oréal Paris Studio/Pro Boost It Volume Mousse (£4.49) to pump it up."
She is like Hadid when it comes to her beauty regime and says, "In terms of my beauty routine, when I'm getting ready in the morning, less is more; it's about how quickly I can get out the door."
8. Adriana Lima
It is no secret that Adriana Lima believes in going barefaced whenever possible. Her social media is full of glowing skin and she is smoking hot even when she is totally sweaty.
She zeroed in on one genius tip in particular: The Victoria's Secret Angel says that after a tough day, she recommends soaking your skin with cotton pads steeped in ice-cold coconut water. "I prefer natural coconut water," she says. "Every time I go to Brazil, I get a chance to try it." BRB—buying all the coconut water in the world.
