These days it’s not hard to spot Chanel Iman. She’s graced haute couture runways and appears in magazines all over the world, including the current swimsuit issue of Sports Illustrated. But how does the striking beauty maintain her skin with such a hectic schedule, particularly during the crazed New York fashion week?

“Before fashion week starts my skin is smooth—no breakouts or pimples,” says the 24-year-old. “But once the week is over my skin is a mess. So, I look to Christine Chin to help me.”

Apparently frequent visits to skincare veteran, Christine Chin in the lower east side of New York for a deep pore cleansing and hydro‑thermal treatment instantly gets the job done. Chin has clientele chock-full of A-list celebs, including Naomi Campbell, Kimora Lee Simmons and Mary J Blige, so it’s only natural for the super star to frequent her spa.

Aside from regular facials, Iman’s beauty arsenal for maintaining her look between fashion shows includes wearing Chanel’s Coco Mademoiselle fragrance, Christian Dior Diorshow mascara and the ever popular, Anastasia Beverly Hills bold brow kit.

For Valentine’s Day the model is looking to rock her beauty must-haves that rank higher than anything else: her smile and confidence. “A smile and confidence are everything,” she says. “This Valentine’s day ladies shouldn’t be afraid to have confidence and swag. Combine that with a smile and you’ll get any guy you want!”
