She Protects Her Face's Natural Oils

Culpo revealed some of her wellness secrets to Net-A-Porter. She says that when it comes to skincare, she likes to keep her natural oils protected. "I don't always wash my face in the morning as I like letting my natural oils do their thing, and I think face wash can make the skin quite dry. Instead, I always apply a super-hydrating moisturizer and drink a ton of water as soon as I wake up."


She Keeps Her Morning Skincare Simple & Her Night Routine Varied

Culpo revealed some of her skincare secrets to Byrdie. She says that she keeps her morning routine simple and her night routine more complex. "In the morning, I just apply an SPF. I am always trying out new products, so what I gravitate toward is often changing. At night, I usually use an oil and a serum. Right now, I love the Clarins Double Serum ($90). In the morning, I use a Vitamin C serum and an SPF, and, typically, I just rinse my skin with warm water instead of using a cleanser. It is something I swear by—it allows for the oils on my skin from sleeping to absorb naturally."


She Stopped Using Certain Products

Culpo revealed to Byrdie that she has cut some skin products out of her routine. "I am always making changes depending on where my skin is at. For example, I've recently stopped using retinol. Unfortunately, I love the sun so much and find it hard to completely protect my face from it. I've decided to forego some of those more intense facial products for more mild options, especially in the sunny summer months."


She Stays Hydrated

Culpo makes sure to stay hydrated. She tells Nat-A-Porter that she makes sure to do this when she travels. "I double up my water intake by drinking lots and hydrate my skin topically. Flying is so dehydrating for the skin, so I always do a hydrating mask after landing. I also use SK-II Facial Treatment Essence and Caudalie Beauty Elixir during the flight to bring a little glow to the skin."


She Eats Produce

Culpo tells Net-A-Porter that she makes sure to stay healthy. "I think it's very important to get my greens in every day. I pick up fruit and vegetables from the farmers' market on the weekends to juice throughout the week – it makes you feel so good, and using fresh ingredients makes all the difference. I also take supplements that boost my gut health and complexion."
