Beauty Boils Down to the Basics
According to Klum, her forever young beauty boils down to the basics. "A lot of beauty comes down to common sense," she told Who What Wear. "I get bombarded with products from all over the world, and I love trying all of those different things, but for me, the basics are most important. When I eat well and keep hydrated I can see the difference in my face when I look in the mirror. You've got to look in the mirror and see if there is something up. That way, you know if you break out it could be because of the garbage you ate. If you look dry and your skin doesn't snap back, you're not hydrated. If you just look at yourself and listen, you know what to do."
Her Diet Is Healthy
Klum maintains that you are what you eat. "For me, beauty is all about food. There is only so much you can do topically. I learned that a really long time ago. I've been in this industry since 1992 and I've always believed you are what you eat. Having said that, a lot of work has to go into every meal to make sure you've got all of the fatty acids, vitamins, antioxidants and hydration you need. We can't do it all because it's a lot of work to prepare. Often, I'll find the time to do the prep (like put chia seeds in to soak overnight), but not everyone has the time and freedom to do things like this, especially as we get older! I find that a supplement is a great add-on to my already pretty healthy diet. A couple of years ago I started taking one Perfectil a day because I was getting older and thought, 'What do I have to lose?!' Of course, no pill will solve your beauty problems. Food always comes first, but I do think it's a good boost,'" she told WWW.
She Washes Her Face with Baby Shampoo
Klum uses shampoo as a face wash. "A long time ago, I went to see an eye doctor because I had a sty and they told me to wash my face with Johnson & Johnson Baby Shampoo. Some days I'll get home from work and have multiple layers of fake eyelashes on and lots of makeup and they told me that Baby Shampoo will mean I can really get into the eye and clean all of the makeup out. It made sense to me! Now it's all I use. It's not super-harsh unlike all of these products at the moment that strip your skin. Personally, they don't work for me," she told WWW.
Coconut Oil Is Her Favorite Product
Klum revealed to WWW that one of her favorite skincare products is actually cooking oil. "I love using just plain, old coconut oil that you get in the supermarket. Especially in Los Angeles right now, everything is so dry and I'm outside a lot. I love to lather up some coconut oil in my hair and on my body too. It's so inexpensive and it just makes everything feel so yummy and nourished. In general, I like going more towards the natural things instead of the sorts of products that are full of perfumes and astringents. I really love trying all of those things but very rarely do I actually stick with it. I'd rather use coconut oil," she told WWW.
She Uses Sunscreen
Klum revealed to Harper's Bazaar UK that she hasn't always slathered on SPF. "I have added sunscreen to my daily routine. I grew up without a lot of awareness of how important it is to keep your skin protected from the sun. I remember tanning with baby oil – can you imagine doing that now? I have always been a sun bum. I'm at my happiest on a beautiful beach in the hot sun but, now, I put on sunscreen first. I like the tinted sunscreen by La Roche Posay," she said.
She Takes Supplements
"I definitely think that you can buy all the potions and creams but it is essential to nourish your skin from within," she told Harper's Bazaar. "I drink a fresh smoothie every morning that is made from fresh fruit and vegetables, and I take two Perfectil Vitamins which are targeted for my skin, hair and nails."
Klum revealed to Elle UK that she is all about exfoliating, getting body scrubs at Beverly Hot Springs. "It's the best one I've ever had. They get off all your dead skin, I love it!" she said.
She Loves Drunk Elephant Products
In one of her Instagram posts, Klum revealed some of her skincare go-tos. They included Drunk Elephant T.L.C. Framboos™ Glycolic Resurfacing Night Serum, Drunk Elephant T.L.C. Sukari Babyfacial™ 25% AHA + 2% BHA Mask, and Drunk Elephant C-Firma™ Vitamin C Day Serum.
