Gigi Hadid is one of the most recognised supermodels in the world and she is also among the highest-paid. Naturally, you might assume that she spends a bomb on beauty treatments to maintain her superior status within the industry, but you’re wrong. The model swears by inexpensive beauty hacks and cult-favourite drugstore buys to treat her skin concerns and maintain her mane. Hadid loves to keep her routine simple and says it’s most effective that way. Curious to know what her favourite go-to beauty secrets are? Read on to find out.
This has got to be one of the most controversial beauty hacks that she follows yet it seems to work for her fabulously. Hadid resorts to applying toothpaste on pimples as a spot treatment to get rid of pimples overnight. She first cleanses with a face wash and dots toothpaste on the pimple. Next, she takes a small piece of a paper towel and wets it. She applies the wet paper towel to the pimple covered with toothpaste and presses it down so that it sticks like a band aid. This is what she does before going to bed and the next morning she wipes the tissue and toothpaste off with a damp cloth. The model claims that the gunk of the pimple also gets wiped off with this last step. The celeb also likes to alternate her toothpaste variants sometimes she goes for a cinnamon-infused toothpaste and other times a peppermint infused one.
She has gorgeous skin and she maintains it largely with her favourite drugstore products. One of her most affordable skincare staples is a brightening apricot scrub that she uses as a face wash when in the shower and she usually does not use a regular face wash before or after that.
Just like the rest of us, Gigi Hadid’s baby hairs are unruly and threaten to mess up her sleek hairstyles too. But she likes to use a face brush from Sephora to tame them. Since her favourite brush is discontinued from the retailer, the model says that even a toothbrush can work to get baby hair in check. She spritzes the bristles with hair spray and then neatly smoothes them over her baby hairs for a sleek effect.
Gigi never shapes her brows nor does she allow anyone else to do it for her. When on modelling assignments, the max she will let a makeup artist do is clean up underneath her brows and that’s it. The shape remains the same and this way she saves bucks on salon appointments (not that she needs to budget). She believes that brows should be kept natural as their unique shape will best suit and enhance your features.
For dry and chapped skin on her lips, Gigi likes resorting to basic hacks to get rid of it. She usually wipes off chapped skins directly with a damp towel or uses a DIY sugar scrub to get the job done. Mixing some crushed sugar with lip balm or oil is a great way to exfoliate and achieve smooth lips.
This is proof that you don’t always need extravagant beauty treatments and products to maintain gorgeous skin and hair like a supermodel. Will you give Gigi Hadid’s beauty hacks a try? I know I just might.
