Natural beauty secrets of the supermodels
Glossy hair, long limbs and impossibly fresh faces that never belie the stress of international travel, photoshoots and remembering to eat well - just how do supermodels stay looking so beautiful?
Luckily for us mere mortals, some of them have spilled the beans on how to get their glowing skin, telling Elle.com how they keep their complexions clear of any blemishes.
Canadian model Anais Pouliot said she uses organic beauty products that contain plant extracts to keep her skin in check. "I try to use more natural products on my face," she explained. "I like argan oil-when you put it on before you go to bed, you wake up with baby skin. Really soft baby skin."
Fellow model Karolina Kurkova is also a fan of herbal oils. "For removing my mascara, I like using coconut oil," she said. "[I use] things that are organic and natural for the skin, and won’t just sit on it. Having great skin also has a lot to do with what you eat-if you eat junk, it’s going to show."
Zimbabwean-born beauty Nyasha Matonhodze reckons the less you put on your face, the better - especially when it comes to makeup.
"My face tends to break out due to all the makeup during fashion season so I make sure to always wash it before I go to bed. And then I just apply cocoa butter - it smells absolutely amazing and it's not too harsh on the skin."
Other models rely on keeping hydrated to keep their complexion looking clear, with Josephine Skriver noticing that her skin can look dull and grey if she doesn't drink enough water. Daphne Groeneveld pointed out the importance of sleep, saying that getting enough quality rest at night is key to her gleaming face.
