Ever since the Brazilian model, activist, and businesswoman took the title of being the face of Dior’s Capture Totale, we’re left wondering how she keeps her skin looking so enviable. Truth: it requires intentional effort. Like us, Gisele opens up about her struggles of maintaining her beauty routine while leading a busy lifestyle, especially on days when she’s pressed for time.
Despite retiring as a runway model back in 2015, Bündchen has still been spending time in the spotlight while juggling other responsibilities such as being an environmental activist and being a mom of two. So the real question boils down to this: what exactly are her tips to achieving flawless skin that stands the test of time? Here, in an exclusive interview with Gisele Bündchen herself, she unveils more about her skincare concerns and beauty secrets that we didn’t know about.
3 PRODUCTS SHE CAN’T LIVE WITHOUT
Like many of us, we tend to rush through our skincare regimes in the morning before sprinting out of the house. In this case, Gisele also shares about how she faces similar dilemmas where she dials down on the number of products in the morning and keeps it straightforward and simple. “My beauty routine is brief because my mornings can get so crazy! I’ll always start the day by washing my face and using a moisturiser, and now I’ve added the Super Potent Serum into my routine as well. It’s quick but effective, and perfect for people like me who are always on the go.”
BEST SKINCARE TIP
No matter how long your day has been, Gisele emphasises that it’s imperative to remove all your makeup before hitting the sheets. In the interview, she said, “Sometimes I was so tired after working a long day that all I wanted to do was fall into bed, but I always kept an evening cleansing routine! It helped keep my skin looking fresh, no matter how many wild and fun looks I had during the day.”
OTHER TIPS TO KEEP IN MIND
Beauty is only skin deep and the only way to achieve healthy skin “goes beyond the surface”. Gisele advises the following: “drink a lot of water, make things that bring you joy and think positively”, which are key to making you feel good and look good on the outside. She says “I never want my skin to look tired (even if I feel it!) so a combination of meditation, eating well, drinking lots of water and a simple beauty routine, no matter how busy I am, has been key to keeping my skin looking fresh and healthy.”
WHY SHE LOVES THE SUPER POTENT SERUM
Putting her best face forward, Gisele mentioned she adores Dior’s Super Potent Serum and for good reason. Known as one of the key products in her routine, Bündchen says that she loves how the serum “nourishes the skin without feeling too heavy,” while helping her maintain a radiant glow. In fact, the serum is also versatile enough to cater to all — including men.
ANTI-AGEING AT A YOUNG AGE
With ageing being a perennial concern for most of us, whether we’re young or old, Gisele mentions that taking care of your skin is ageless and prioritising your skincare habits in the early stages is key to maintaining healthy skin later in life. Some of these habits include drinking lots of water and eating healthy, and incorporating quality products that work for your own skin. “Age is a beautiful thing and a natural part of life, but it can also be challenging. It’s all a matter of how we look at it. Life is made by so many different experiences that shape who we are. The one thing about getting older is that you get more comfortable in your own skin.”
