You could not be more wrong if you thought supermodels are having it easy cruising through life with their looks. Under the high-pressure environment of being constantly under the spotlight and pitted against others, it’s awfully tough to stay as stunning without daily upkeep (how else do they keep their sanity and flawless skin?). As these top models only go for the best, we take cues from them, scrutinizing their daily beauty regime, and share 5 tips to achieve and maintain an impressive complexion like theirs.
Why limit yourself to a mask a week when using a mask daily clearly works wonders for the skin? Just take a look at superstars Lady Gaga and Bella Hadid who treated their skins to face masks before prestigious award ceremonies and flaunted their clear skin on Instagram after such skin treatments.
If you’re a true beauty junkie, you’d understand how important healthy skin is when it comes to makeup application. Starting your day with a hydrating sheet mask not only calms the skin but allows your makeup to set better. We are obsessed with Hardy & Co Dewy Skin Hydrating Silk Treatment Mask ($18) for its chockfull of essential vitamins, botanicals and silk proteins. This lightweight silk mesh nourishes and moisturizes skin to unveil a supple and healthy winning complexion. If you’d want to try on a Gold face mask because Bella did, go for Hardy & Co Gold Therapeutic Gel Mask ($18).
Supermodels do not leave toners behind. Many people skip this step thinking it’s redundant but a toner balances the pH of your skin to keep bacteria at bay. Moreover, moisturising on toned, slightly damp skin retains moisture better, otherwise you’d really be “wasting” your product.
Victoria Secret Angel Alessandra Ambrosio relies on Clarins Toning Lotion With Camomille ($23) to refresh skin. “It’s my pre-show beauty secret,” she says. Make it yours too.
3. Undereye Cream or Oil
The eyes are windows to souls. An attractive pair of peepers certainly adds oomph to a youthful and radiant appearance. Say no to fine lines and dark eye circles with regular hydration and replenishment of vital essences to the thin skin under the eyes. Quality eye-care products also help makeup set better and avoid fine lines from showing up under your powder. No wonder Kendall and Kylie Jenner are both adamant about using eye creams daily.
Adopt Sloane Inc Youth ($34) a 100% organic Rosehip Oil with Lavender that’s designed to stimulate cellular renewal, hydrate and brighten skin. To give your undereye areas a boost, consider Revitalift Eyes to quickly rejuvenate eyes by delivering tiny doses of Hyaluronic Acid to stimulate natural collagen production and moisture for luminous and attention grabbing eyes.

4. Neck Cream
Many people neglect their necks and walk out of the house with a fair flawless face paired with a dull neck one shade darker. Don’t be like them. Hot model Kate Moss moisturizes skin daily and swears by Crème de la Mer. We’re sure she takes equally good care of her neck. Our necks are not averse to aging and can become an exhibition of rough, dull and saggy skin. Thus it’s important to prime and prep our necks with replenishing serums – try Sloane Inc Skin Drink S8.9 ($99). Made using pure naturally sourced olives, this liquid returns dewy and supple skin with its rich natural antioxidants that promise to deeply hydrate, protect and repair skin.

With a busy schedule of modeling and partying we can expect supermodels like Cara Delevingne, Georgia May Jagger and Stephanie Seymour to bank on facials to create magic for their skin. By scheduling their favourite red carpet facials first thing in the day, their skin continues to glow throughout the day.
Popular celebs and models head to The Sloane Spa for their facials and the Superstar facial is their fave. Designed with them in mind, as the name suggests, the facial transforms lackluster skin with enzyme exfoliation and feeds it a potent mixture of antioxidants for skin glowing prowess. For skin that craves a deep cleanse, book yourself a Deep Red facial that removes skin junk and promotes rejuvenation benefits.
