Supermodel Naomi Campbell fully believes that what you put in your body shows on the outside. The first thing she does in the morning is drink warm water with lime to cleanse her system of toxins and impurities. Simply boil water, steep a lime wedge and drink.
Jet setting around the world for fashion week and editorial spreads takes a toll on you skin. Supermodel Senait Gidey relies on an avocado mask to hydrate, refresh and restore radiance to her skin.
To Make Your Own:
Mash one ripe avocado in a bowl and squeeze the juice of half a lemon and mix. Apply the mask to your face and let it sit for 5-10 minutes. Rinse with warm water and follow with your favorite moisturizer.
For even better skin, you can also add honey, or eggs to the mask to soothe and tighten skin.
If there is a single product that was the greatest gift to the beauty world, it would be coconut oil. Models and beauty editors alike swear by it for its multitude of uses—moisturizer, makeup remover, brush cleaner—you name it, coconut oil can do it!
