Fresh off the heels of the announcement of which girls will be walking this years Victoria’s Secret Show, we’re stealing beauty tips from another Victoria’s Secret Angel. Candice Swanepoel may not be walking this year’s show in Paris, but after walking the runway 10 times she will always be an angel.
The new mum has a preference for natural beauty products and knows how to keep her skin glowing from the inside out.
Here are some of Candice’s best tips for looking and feeling your best.
All models know that you are what you eat. Candice revealed to Vogue that she likes to start the day with a skin-loving smoothie made of healthy oils, anti-oxidant fruits and collagen powder.
Collagen powder is seriously the modelling industry’s best-kept secret. Think of it like natural Botox. It helps to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, boost metabolism and improve the health of hair and nails. Try adding Great Lakes Gelatin Co. Collagen Hydrolysate, Collagen Joint Care to your morning smoothie or incorporate bone broth into your diet.
Perfect Victoria’s Secret Curls
There’s no better option for date night. Victoria’s Secret curls will always turn heads and look great on everyone. The key to perfect date night curls is keeping the waves even. Use a curling wand with a large barrel like VS Sassoon 38mm Ceramic Curler, which leaves you with loose, bouncy waves.
Always use a heat protectant to protect your hair from breakage after using heat tools. Bumble and Bumble Hairdresser’s Invisible Oil Primer tames flyaways and detangles, whilst also protecting from high heat and UV damage.
The real Victoria’s secret is that the models backstage avoid using hairspray on their curls. This keeps the curls looking soft and relaxed. Instead use a volumising powder on roots to add body. Try Batiste XXL Plumping Powder for maximum volume.
Golden and Glowing
Let’s face it, we all look good with a tan. A golden glow can give you more confidence, even your complexion and make you appear slimmer. The Victoria’s Secret models reveal a lot of skin so it’s no surprise that they prefer to have a healthy glow. Candice always has a golden, sun kissed tan that’s just the right shade.
Too often we make the mistake of thinking that a darker tan is better. To get it right every time, try a gradual tan that builds on your natural skin tone. Eco Tan Winter Skin applies like a moisturiser and builds a natural bronze glow over three to four days. If you want a deep, instant tan try Pure Tan Dark Instant Tanning Foam.
Once you’ve got your glow, enhance it with a natural illuminator like RMS Beauty Living Luminiser.
