Supermodels reveal their skincare secrets


If there was a job description for the role of “supermodel”, amazing skin would proabably be the first prerequisite. Despite long days on shoots, tons of travel and constant events that warrant a full face of makeup, their skin continues to hit levels of lust-worthy luminosity mere mortals like me can only dream of. And whilst good (aka impeccable) genes are definitely partly responsible for the glow these stunners are sporting, they also have access to the best professionals and products in the biz. Luckily for us, they’re gorgeous and generous, letting us in on the tips and tricks they rely on for staying fresh-faced, plus the secret weapons they keep in their skincare stashes. We may never have their bone structure, but we can have their products. Here’s our edit of the best supermodel skincare secrets.RELATED: 5 of the best anti-ageing ingredientsRELATED: Ginseng is skincare’s ultimate all-rounder

Gigi Hadid

Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Wash Pink Grapefruit Foaming Scrub

“I just keep it simple. I feel like if you start using 30 products on your face, the second you don’t have those 30 products, your skin will need it. And I feel like just keeping your skin clean and being good to it is enough. I love the Neutrogena Grapefruit scrub.”

Candice Swanepoel

Colbert MD Intensify Facial Discs ($107,

“I do a cleanse, tone, serum, moisturise and use an eye cream in the morning. Then I’ll exfoliate twice a week. I use the Colbert MD exfoliation pads, it’s like a little rough pad that you open up and discard afterwards.”

Kendall Jenner

Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Concentrated Recovery PowerFoil Mask

“My nightly beauty routine consists of washing my face before bed. Normally I’m shooting and sometimes we have multiple makeup looks and changes so now I use an Advanced Night Repair Concentrated Recovery PowerFoil Mask once a week. It is super hydrating and helps restore my skin’s brightness!”

Martha Hunt

Kora Organics by Miranda Kerr Noni Glow Skin Food Dietary Supplement ($20,

“I’ve been carrying vitamin supplements around with me – I take the Kora one and another collagen beauty one – I really think they make a difference. I’ll just put it in a bottle of water and shake it up. I feel better and I notice differences in my skin.”

Miranda Kerr

Kora Organics by Miranda Kerr Turmeric Brightening & Exfoliating Mask ($60,

“I’ve been using the mask every second day as an exfoliant because I am obsessed with it. But when I have time to actually leave the mask on, which is two to three times a week, I will do it when I’m multitasking. I can put it on while I am making breakfast and then I will jump into the shower to wash it off.”

Adriana Lima

Caudalie Beauty Elixir ($25,

“My skin is pretty normal, but I travel and my skin will be really dry and it’ll react. If I’m on a plane I bring my Caudalie Beauty Elixir. I love that mist. Also, you can put tea-tree oil on a zit; it dries it out faster. Just put it on during the night and then wash it off in the morning.”

Alessandra Ambrosio

Kiehl’s Cactus Flower and Tibetan Ginseng Hydrating Mist ($39,

“My daily routine is simple but effective. I cleanse my face, occasionally with exfoliator, and I love anti-ageing serums that are packed full of vitamin C. I love the cactus spray from Kiehl’s for my face. I always travel with it and have it in my bag for when I need to freshen up or wake up a little.”

Coco Rocha

Lancôme Hydra Zen Anti-Stress Moisturising Cream

“The best thing is just to make sure to take off all that makeup at night and cleanse, and in the morning do the exact same thing. I always try to let my face breathe as much as I can. I’ve been using Lancôme Hydra Zen Cream for a little while now – it’s really light and not too thick.”
