Victoria’s Secret model Elsa Hosk just revealed her very personal skincare routine.
“Everybody has their own skin-care journey,” Hosk says over the phone from Los Angeles. “I’ve always struggled with cystic acne. It’s your hormones at the end of the day [dictating how your skin looks]. And it’s why I try to focus on treating it from the inside, with the foods I eat and how I manage stress, more than anything else. But I’m still struggling with it.”
The model uses two very requested products from her personal beauty line: Beaubble x Elsa a springtime peel-off water-based nail colors, and Lip Contour Wand.
“They’re perfect for my routine because it is that quick everyday pleasures kind of vibe,” Hosk says. “You put it on and it doesn’t look like, ‘Wow, she really made a look.’ The blush and lip wand are more about enhancing what you already have with a flush of color versus, like, ‘Wow, she’s wearing blush.’”
The former Victoria’s Secret Angel recently became a mom to daughter Tuulikki a little over a year ago and She admitted her life Is completely different now. “It’s so different than it was before,” she says. “I’m so much more of a minimalist now because I don’t have time to do a 10-step skin-care routine. It just has to be what works, what’s fast, what’s efficient, what looks good, and what’s actually good for me, my baby, and the planet.”
The model is also very down to earth: “it’s genetics,” Hosk admits. “You can of course make your skin look better with different creams and devices, but a lot of it [is what you were born with].” She also advises not slathering on your creams and then going to bed, but really working your products into your skin with your fingers and hands. And yet still, “I don’t always do that,” she says with a laugh. “Sometimes I just need to get out the door or go to bed.”
Elsa Hosk ‘s Skincare Routine
Anyway, “My favorite cleanser is the Dr. Barbara Sturm Foaming Cleanser because it’s so gentle and feels so nice. The foam and the bubbles on the face…I just love the way it cleanses and that it’s gentle.”
And what about moisturizer? “I love Augustinus Bader The Rich Cream. I think their products are so nice. I know they’re very expensive, but I feel like a little bit goes a long way and that’s why I like them a lot. I just don’t use much around my chin area because that’s where I tend to get cystic acne.”
