A Celeb Facialist’s Trick for Getting Models' Skin Perfect Immediately Before They Walk the Runway
By Julie Ricevuto, Digital Beauty Editor |
If there’s one thing Bella Hadid, Alessandra Ambrosio, Karlie Kloss and Martha Hunt all have in common, it’s good skin, or, as it turns out, how they get their good skin. Apparently, these supermodels—who all just walked in the 2017 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show—used the same celebrity facialist to get that perfect glow before walking down the runway in Shanghai this week.

According to an interview with the Coveteur, Georgia Louise was their facialist of choice, and for good reason. Louise, who's also Molly Sims' go-to facialist, used a new bespoke treatment appropriately called “the Angel facial” on the models right before they headed to the arena for hair and makeup before the show.
“This facial is all about immediate results,” Louise tells the Coveteur. “I had to get the girls glowing right before they hit the catwalk.” In order the brighten up each model's face, the treatment began with an oxygenating cleanse, then a Biologique Recherche P-50 exfoliation, followed by a 30-minute sculpting massage to add definition to the contours of the face.
Once the face had been thoroughly massaged, a collagen mask was applied before customized products were used depending on each model’s skin care needs. Finally, the full Biologique Recherche VIP02 line was used to “restore stressed skin and deliver instant radiance.” As the last step before heading to the show, models dunked their head in a bucket of ice water (Kate Moss actually swears by this trick as well!). “The funniest moment was getting Karlie Kloss to dunk her head in a bucket of ice with me, minutes before she left for the arena,” Louise recounted.
So, there you have it. While it might not be easy to snag an appointment with Georgia Louise for your own personal get-glowing facial, you can follow her own supermodel-approved routine to immediately brighten your skin as well (ice bucket included!).
