Models' Off-Duty Beauty - The Face This Guide

Yes, they are genetically gifted and look gorgeous with or without makeup and hair, but they do have personal beauty rules they stick to on their days off and on travel days, to maintain their skin and hair so it can stand up to the rigors of back to back shows and photo shoots.  With all the makeup switch-ups during show seasons, usually multiple times per day, quick and often extreme hair manipulation, little sleep, irregular eating habits, airplane air, and general stress or the hectic pace of it all, models have to take care of their skin and hair if they want to keep working. 

Giving their skin and hair a rest on down days is first and foremost to models.  Letting their skin breathe and not be coated with different products is essential, as is letting their hair be clean and in its natural state as much as possible. Proper sleep, drinking water, wearing sunscreen, never going to bed without removing makeup, and using a super-hydrating moisturizer twice a day, are standard model beauty rules that go a long way in maintaining a healthy complexion.

We did an informal survey amongst some of the top models in Miami this season and asked them for their favorite products and beauty tips:

Cleanser:  Bioderma

Sunscreen:  Neogen SPF 50

Moisturizer: Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel with Hyaluronic Acid

Lips:  Homeoplasmine

Mascara:  Maybelline Great Lash

Tinted Moisturizer:  Nars Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 30

Vitamin E oil and coconut oil for treating hair, skin, dry patches, body, cuticles, etc.

Take it from these models that what you don’t put on your face is just as important as what you do.  Giving your skin  time to recover and rejuvenate is crucial.  A fresh, glowing, hydrated complexion is beauty at its best.

Eat To Be Beautiful - Model Beauty Diet!

A model’s healthy skin, hair and nails are their stock in trade.  They have to take care of themselves to be at the top of their game just like an athlete, and to have the health and stamina to go the course in such a rigorously demanding industry.  Beauty really does begin on the inside and whatever you consumer really does appear on your face … and hips! 

It’s so important to remember that taking care of yourself is essential and that you can’t succeed if your face, hair and body show signs of too many late nights, too much junk food, too much alcohol, and not enough nutrition and proper exercise. Going to any extreme such as fasting and doing liquid diets will not keep you healthy enough to sustain yourself.  It will show and it’s not beautiful!

Maintaining healthy, balanced eating habits and exercising are the recipe for beauty and health.  Exercising, results in increased blood flow, which makes skin glow, and gives you energy.  I am going to share fitness tips of top models in an upcoming post, so stay tuned!

The number one thing your body needs is H2O – water!  Keeps you well-hydrated, revs up a dull complexion, and keeps you going!

Here are some super foods that are packed with the nutrients you need for a healthy complexion, shiny hair and a lean body:

  • Biotin for healthy skin, and strong hair and nails:  bananas, beans, lentils, salmon, and eggs.

  • Omega 3 fatty acids for shiny hair:  eggs, soybeans, chicken, seafood, and nuts.

  • Vitamins A and C are antioxidants and have skin-firming properties:  citrus fruit, kiwi, apricots, carrots, mangoes, spinach, and sweet potatoes.  

  • Vitamin E has anti-inflammatory properties and reduces inflammation:  sunflower seeds, almonds, wheat germ, avocadoes, and dark leafy greens such as spinach, kale, and arugula.

  • Zinc affects the immune system and hair strength:  cashews, soybeans and green beans,

  • Protein: keeps your body fueled and toned:  lean beef (gives your iron as well), lean chicken, eggs, low-fat dairy. 

  • Olive oil and green tea increase blood flow and oxygen to the skin – essential for glowing skin.

  • Quinoa – this is an easy to prepare protein filled with amino acids, iron, zinc, potassium and calcium. 

Foods with a high glycemic index such as bread, pancakes, bagels, many processed cereals, pies, cookies, pastries, muffins, candy, etc., add to any puffiness you might have, and makes you look less contoured.  Moderation is key. 

So think about maintaining good nutrition and try to add nourishing foods and drinks into your eating habits, get enough sleep, exercise, and be the picture of health.  You will look more beautiful, and have more energy – which is crucial for a successful modeling career.  

A model with healthy hair, glowing skin, stamina, and a toned body will always succeed over a model who does not take care of herself.  It’s her business to be her best!
