Models Direct have come up with some basic tips for models and potential models who wish to enhance their looks and health.
Know your skin type. Many large department stores (such as Debenhams, John Lewis, Selfridges or Harrods) have skincare advisors who can help you with this and maybe provide you with tester products.
Keep your skin clean and moisturised this is the number one rule of model skincare. Always remove your make-up before bed, use a moisturiser with an SPF15 minimum during the day and a good night cream last thing at night, suited to your specific skin-type. Exfoliate regularly (every two or three days) with a gentle exfoliating product or a facial brush and try to use a facemask weekly. If you do not want to spend too much on expensive treatments or facemasks, try using oatmeal and natural yogurt, or honey both provide a nutritious mask suitable for any skin type.
Keep it simple during the day, natural beauty is far more attractive than full make up on a day to day basis, with the addition of lip-gloss or stronger eye makeup for social nights out. Make sure you keep your eyebrows shaped, as this will make a huge difference to your overall look. Always choose products that suit your skin type and colours that flatter your skin tone and eye colour.
Know your hair type, and keep your hair clean and conditioned with appropriate products. A consultation with a credible hair stylist followed by a good cut is a great investment. Experiment with up-dos and accessories in order to find the looks that flatter you most, and leave colouring to the professionals.
Eat healthily, sleep well, exercise for at least half an hour three times a week and keep hydrated with bottled water as a good basis for body care. Never skip meals. Prioritise personal hygiene. Keep your skin soft and smooth by exfoliating at least once a week and always use a good moisturiser following baths or showers. Apply sunscreen lotions with an SPF of at at least 15 when spending time outdoors. Look after hands, feet and nails manicuring and pedicuring regularly.
The best way to retain your good looks is to keep stress levels as low as possible. Always keep in touch with friends and family and prioritise healthy relationships. Include pilates, yoga or meditation in your fitness regime to encourage balance and a healthy mental attitude.
