Top 5 beauty secrets that Cindy Crawford, Naomi Campbell and Claudia Schiffer followed.
Supermodels like Kendall Jenner, Gigi Hadid, and the rest of the squad can RUN today because the OG supermodels Cindy Crawford, Naomi Campbell, and Claudia Schiffer WALKED back in the day. The gorgeous women weren’t treated as just models, they were bonafide fashion and beauty icons who took the world by storm with their poise, grace, and mainly their timeless beauty. The trio collectively slayed the covers of thousands of magazines, brought life to hundreds of designers’ creativity, walked down dozens of ramps in the 90s. So, it’s safe for us, common people, to assume that these divas know a thing or two about beauty and skincare. Let’s decode what they got to say about why there’s not a single fine line on their foreheads.
Mist regularly to stay hydrated
When supermodels tell you to mist your face, you mist your face! A lot of people consider facial mists a luxury rather than a necessity, but it is very much the latter. It’s also the only easy way to moisturize your skin on the go without having to spill your sticky moisturizer on your car seat, which can get messy and expensive to get off, let me tell you that. Facial mist is best sprayed at the beginning of your skin-care routine, in between the layers of make-up, and also in the middle of a really long and drying day.
Facial mists contain vital vitamins to hydrate, smoothen, and nourish our skin. That being said, no amount of facial mist can help your internally dehydrated skin if you don’t chug a couple of liters of water every day.
Always take off your makeup
It goes without saying that one should never go to bed with makeup on, but that’s the common-people beauty practice. Models take this routine up a notch by doing a double cleanse. Double cleanse starts with a cleansing oil to remove makeup, followed by a cleansing foam (water-based), and then by a cream cleanser to get rid of any leftover debris, germs, and dirt in the pores. Models also advice against working out with makeup on as it can cause breakouts.
Serum for the win
It’s almost a legit taboo to skip the serum step of a beauty regimen in the model world. The first step into choosing the right serum is knowing the difference between an essence, skin oil, and serum. The first indicator to differentiate between the three? Look for the higher price tag, haha! Jokes apart, serums contain a higher concentration of the essential nutrients and are packed with skincare essential ingredients, which explains the price tag and also why this is an inevitable step. To compensate for the price, let me throw in the fact that a little goes a long way when it comes to serum.
Jade roller to depuff
A jade roller looks like something Instagrammers use for the aesthetic of their page and doesn’t really do much beyond racking up the likes. But we got the supermodels vouching for it so let’s dive in. Do you hate that your under-eye resembles an allergic reaction sometimes? The solution to this is scientific and simple. By using the jade roller, you regulate blood circulation and lymphatic drainage – this helps get rid of the toxins and also drain the unnecessary fluid, that accumulates in the morning, out of your face. By using a moisturizer or serum before using the jade roller, you help your skin absorb the products better. Also, make sure to store your jade roller in a fridge when not in use as the cool enhances the power of the jade roller.
Skipping sunscreen is a no-no
This may not be the first time you’re hearing this, but if you aren’t already on it… start it now! Your skin will thank you when you’re older. We all assume aging is not really in our control, which is true, but does your skin needs to scream and tell everyone your age? The signs of aging on your skin are definitely in our control, according to several dermatologists. So, it’s extremely important to protect your skin from the harmful UVA and UVB rays of the sun. Not only does it prevent fine lines, pigmentation, wrinkles, it also reduces your chances of skin cancer that’s often (not always) caused by exposure to the sun. Give the SPF twenty minutes to work before you step out, and always use an SPF 30 and above.
So, supermodel skincare isn’t as extra as we would have thought, is it? It’s all a matter of consistency and extending your knowledge a bit about the things you care about. So stop giving yourself excuses about supermodels being loaded, and try these simple yet effective skincare tips. Toodles!
