We know that to maintain their covetable model figures, Gigi Hadid likes hitting the punching bag, while Kendall Jenner hates cardio but does it anyway. Yes, everyone's always dying to know the secrets behind how top models stay in shape, but we admit we might be a little more curious about what beauty products are in their gym bags. After our favorite runway walkers recover from their intense workout regimens, what are their tried-and-true staples for freshening up?
It's a challenge for most to step out looking photo-ready (or ready to run into anyone you know) after hitting the gym. Yet models do it daily and with unrivaled dexterity. Never camera shy, models off duty maintain their cool, effortlessly eye-catching vibe, even when they just finished a session of single-leg dead lifts on a Bosu ball or high-intensity dance cardio.
Keep scrolling to see the products these supermodels swear by after they sweat.
Gigi Hadid keeps her body bikini-ready by boxing at Gotham Gym in New York City. After breaking a sweat, the top model rinses off and freshens up just like the rest of us. While she has access to some of the most luxurious beauty products on the market, Hadid still loves this popular drugstore score for washing her face. "The exfoliating beads get the blood circulating and leave my skin feeling clean and soft," she tells InStyle.com.
After washing, Hadid counts on Chanel for her daily moisturizer. She says this formula is perfect for wearing under makeup because it absorbs right into the skin.
Patrick Ta, the makeup mastermind behind many of Hadid's and BFF Kendall Jenner's red carpet looks, asserts there are certain essentials that a woman should never leave home without. First: a face oil. Ta tells Vogue he uses La Mer's to prep his clients' skin and even mixes it in with foundation to lock in extra moisture.
The second beauty bag must-have Ta recommends is a face mist, which comes particularly handy for a refresh after an intense workout. He tells Vogue his favorite is Tatcha's, which is formulated with botanical oils.
One of Jenner's staples for keeping her mane shiny and sleek throughout the day, before and after workouts is this paddle brush. "It smooths my hair without snagging, and it's great for blow-drying," she tells InStyle.com. Perfect for getting hair back in place after a run (though she's confided in us before how much she hates cardio).
To keep her skin silky smooth and runway ready, Kendall mentioned to Allure that she relies on this vitamin-enriched formula.
Dermatologist Christie Kidd, who Jenner calls her "skin savior," underscores how important it is to wear sunblock daily. She says the model uses this one formula that also contains acne medicine to prevent breakouts.
Jourdan Dunn admits she has a difficult time committing to working out. On the other hand, she's quite religious when it comes to her skincare routine. After washing her face, she uses this toner by Pixi that she tells Into the Gloss leaves her face feeling exfoliated.
Earlier this year, Dunn posted photos to Instagram of all the beauty products she uses to maintain her flawless complexion. Among her impressive arsenal was this daily detox wash that clears pores of sweat and other buildup.
The model admits her skin is quite dry but she combats it with this simple, effective solution.
Elsa Hosk admitted to Teen Vogue that she sweats a lot and her go-to fix is to always keep deodorant in her bag and "use those deodorizing wipes that cool you off a bit."
Hosk tells Into the Gloss that fellow model Constance Jablonski introduced her to this moisturizer, and now it's all she uses.
For light coverage, Hosk says she keeps this compact in her bag at all times.
