If you want to get hair and skin like the Victoria’s Secret Angels (and basically, who doesn’t?) then you need to get the information right from the horse’s mouth, so to speak. While they may have professionals helping them on the day of a shoot or show, they will all still have things that they will be doing from time to time when they are at home. That glossy hair and dewy skin doesn’t get there all by itself! So here are some of the tips, tricks, and hacks that the angels do as part of their regular beauty regime. Are there any that you’d like to adopt?
The whole Hadid family never seem to age, and they have such glossy hair and flawless skin. But angel Bella, reportedly goes weeks at a time without wearing makeup, or minimal makeup at least. Doing so can give your skin what it needs, and act as a bit of a detox for your skin. She is an avid drinker of water, which can help get glowing, clear, and dewy skin (something that we can do more at home really easily).
As well as going bare-faced from time to time, she also reportedly uses skin masks, and even makes her own with natural ingredients. The same goes for hair, using hair masks often too. Having dry and dull hair is not going to cut it as a Victoria’s Secret angel. So if you find that your hair is pretty dry and dull looking, how about adding in a hair mask to your beauty regime? You could even look for a good dry scalp treatment if you suffer with dandruff. An itchy head is never going to be a good look. Coconut oil can work wonders for your hair too.
The brunette beauty Alessandra has some of the best skin around. And the reason why? She is safe in the sun! When you’re out in the sunshine a lot, too many UV rays can cause damage to your skin and speed up the aging of your skin as it will reduce your skin’s elasticity. So using a sunscreen, or even just a foundation with an SPF factor, is really important. Using it every day can be just what your skin needs to get it look its best. This can also help to keep your skin hydrated.
Serums, lotions, and natural products that are aloe vera based can work wonders on your skin, especially after being in the sun, as well as help to fight premature aging.
The beauty from Portugal has some of the best hair, with dark, shiny locks. So it makes no surprise that haircare is her main concern when she is in her own time. Having a busy schedule modelling can mean a lot of products get used on her hair, and there is nothing worse than going to bed with your hair full of all sorts. It can clog your pores, lead to breakouts, and a dry scalp. So showing each night can be a good idea if you have a lot of product in your hair, or have used lots of hairspray, for instance.
Finding a good conditioner can be the thing that makes or breaks your hair too; no one wants one that leaves your hair feeling too greasy. Look for ones that are sulphite-free and contain as many natural ingredients as possible.
The South African blonde knows how to take care of her skin; have you ever seen such beautiful skin? From her African roots, she will know just how important a good skincare routine is, especially when out in the sun. But once work is over and the makeup comes off, taking care of your skin is really important. If you like to wear quite a bit of makeup, then it could be a good idea to follow her advice. She told Vogue Magazine last year that she likes to use ointments like melaleuca oil (or tea tree oil in layman's terms), as it is completely natural to use but it does have natural antibacterial properties. So it is great to have as part of your routine, especially if you are prone to breakouts.
Are you doing any of these things already as part of your skincare routine? A lot of it isn’t anything new necessarily, but it is just a case of making it a daily habit, and not just an occasional thing. It would be great to hear what you think!
