How Top Models Care For Their Skin

    Hilary Rhoda

    Hilary Rhoda

    The New York-based model swears by Estee Lauder’s Advanced Night Repair ($55) before bed and a massage in the morning: “Makeup artists at early morning shows always give a good face massage to get the blood flowing,” she says. “Now I give them to myself! It’s a good little trick that wakes you up and de-puffs your face.”

    “I’ve been doing a lot of salt soaks,” says the busy model. “It gets rid of all the toxins that build up after a long day of hair and makeup. I’ll fill the tub with warm water and Himalayan Sea Salt ($6), soak my body for 20 minutes, and splash my face a few times.”

    Catherine McNeil 

    McNeil, who made quite the comeback this season, has the most porcelain skin we’ve ever seen on an Australian. She attributes its health to 100% Pure’s Brightening Scrub ($21) and a host of moisturizing masks she’s found at French drugstores, like Avene’s Soothing Moisture Mask ($26).“I use it every night,” she says. “And I carry makeup wipes in my bag so that I can take everything off right after each show.”

    Alana Zimmer

    “I just got a humidifier!” Zimmer nearly squeals when asked about her beauty secrets. “I always thought it was a hoax, but turns out it makes a huge difference, especially in New York in the winter.” She says the added moisture in the air leaves her fresh-faced and hydrated. (Try the Crane Drop's Ultrasonic Cool Mist Humidifier ($55)--it’s quiet, well-designed, and runs for up to 24 hours.) Not surprisingly, she also uses La Mer's Moisturizing Cream ($150) in the winter and SK-II’s beloved Facial Treatment Mask ($90) while traveling: “I’ll even wear one on the plane!”

    Aymeline Valade

    Valade, one of the busiest models this month, is all about simplicity. “I think the key to good skin is cleansing,” she says. “I use Bioderma Crealine Ultra-Mild Cleanser ($28) and then Cetaphil Cream Cleanser ($9). I think the skin really needs to breathe at night (it can’t breathe during the day underneath all that makeup) so I hate to put anything on top.” The French model will, however, spritz it with rosewater or bottled water. “It’s the tap water that really dries it out.”

    Like Valade, the Argentine model swears by Cetaphil ($9). “I take off all of my makeup with Lancome’s Bi-Facil Eye Makeup Remover ($27), wash my face, and use La Roche Posay’s Toleriane Moisturizer ($28)--it’s the best.”

    Collison swears by La Roche Posay’s Toleraine Cream ($28), too. But she also loves the brand’s spot acne treatment, Effaclar Al Intensive Acne Spot Treatment ($30). “The most important thing I do is drink a lot of water!” she says.
