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.

- The Great Pomegranate Seed Oil Hi Kianouche, Thank you for your message. I would recommend to mix pomegranate oil with Marula oil for what you are looking to treat. A few drops of antioxidant-rich Marula oil mixed with Pomegranate oil can boost efficacy and help restore your skin’s functions in perfect equilibrium. Long term use may visibly minimise pores, brighten the skin, protect it from the oxidative damage caused by pollution, tones down pigmentation and assists with scar tissue healing. Hope this helps :)
- The Great Pomegranate Seed Oil Hi I’ve bought some of your pomegranate oil, together with rosehip and marula oils. Which of the other two oils would be better to mix with pomegranate oil for mature skin with hyperpigmentation due to sun damage and sometimes prone to spots and milia when using rich moisturisers. Also, can I use pomegranate oil by itself or combined with either of the other two oils around my eyes

- The amazing Ashwagandha benefits for womenHi Dolores, thank you for your message!Ashwagandha is an adaptogen so will adapt to your own bodies rhythm. It is a powerful way to regulate energy levels through the day so in some people may boost circulation and cell activity, which is why you may find yourself with insomnia. Everyone is unique and different, so will react to herbs and remedies differently. As you are using bio-identical hormones, I would advise you check with your GP, as there are often interferences with herbs. Perhaps you should try taking your Ashwagandha in the morning to regulate your bodies rhythm through the day.
