Gigi Hadid is no stranger to Vogue as she has appeared in the magazine numerous times throughout her modeling career. This time around, she’s on the cover of American Vogue in this new chapter of her life. She talks about motherhood, finding herself, and her life outside of modeling in the latest issue, and shares her post-pregnancy skincare routine on Vogue’s Beauty Secrets segment on YouTube.
While pregnant, Gigi wanted to stick to more clean and natural products like Oliveda — a skincare brand that’s sourced from olive oil extracts. But that was during the summer and before baby Khai was born. Along with the change in season, she has shifted to using much more accessible products post-pregnancy. This is good news for those who want to replicate the model’s routine.
Beginning with Dr. Jart+ Ceramidin Cream, then followed by OdacitÃ© Mo+P Very Dry Skin Moringa Petitgrain Serum Concentrate, Gigi is generous when applying the products. “Now I have moved into my winter routine, which really is about a thicker moisturizer because my skin’s been dry.” Proof that she swears by these products, she opens a new bottle of the serum because she just went through her last one.
Truer words have never been spoken when she says, “I really just wanted good products and I don’t think you need to pay a lot for that.” Although she doesn’t film washing her face, Gigi mentions that her go-to facial cleanser is Cetaphil. Apart from the duration of her pregnancy, she makes it known that she has always gone for drugstore products. She’s also still a fan of St. Ives Apricot Scrub that she started using back in high school.
It’s during Fashion Week when her skin gets irritated the most, specifically around her chin and nose because of all the make-up she has to wear. She reckons stress and lack of sleep are also causes of her breakouts, but she treats the spots with a hack her mom taught her by applying toothpaste on the problem area to dry it out — she doesn’t advise everyone to do this, though.
Last but not the least, she moisturizes her lips with Lano Strawberry 101 Ointment Multi-Balm – Dry Lips Treatment. It’s a multipurpose product for her as she dabs some on her under eyes, as well as the tip of her nose and her eyebrows since that’s where her skin feels dry. Apparently, brow products go on better when she does that, too.
The first-time mom reminds viewers that she doesn’t look as put together every day, adding “Sometimes I go a week without touching make-up or just putting on deodorant is like we’re doing great.” She tries not to be too hard on herself, which is sound advice everyone should follow, especially coming from a cover girl like her.
