With almost 10 million viewers tuning in on TV every year (plus, many millions more viewing photos on social media), the Victora’s Secret Fashion Show is one event where there’s no room for bad skin or last-minute beauty blunders. For veteran Angel, Martha Hunt, the skin care prep is intense—and down to a science. We spoke with her long-time aesthetician Mzia Shiman, Facialist and Owner of Mzia Shiman Spa, to get the scoop on the exact products and treatments Hunt relies on to get an absolutely flawless face.

It all starts with regular facials.
“Over the course of the year with Martha, I give her the Triple-Glow Facial monthly, which includes microdermabrasion followed by a facial with extractions and then oxygen infusion,” says Siman. “Most of the time following all of these treatments, we use LED light therapy – it totally jump starts the skin and targets skin concerns like redness, blemishes and fine lines. Martha has absolutely gorgeous skin, but of course can experience irritation from makeup and dehydration. Right after many of her treatments, she takes a photo and looks amazing!”

Plumping treatments are key a few days before the big show.
“Before she got on the plane to Paris for the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, I gave Martha an Oxygen Infusion. This is a great treatment especially for those who travel because planes are prone to significantly dehydrate skin. And of course, on the VS plane, they’re doing press interviews and taking a ton photos – they want to look their absolute best—even that early in the morning! Martha always incorporates oxygen infusion and LED light therapy the day before a shoot or even morning-of. The Oxygen Infusion stays in your skin for 72 hours – it plumps the skin, it makes it look very hydrated, flawless and healthy. It plumps the lips and defines the cheekbones.”

Using the right products are crucial.
The morning of the show, Hunt saw three of the Angels: Martha Hunt as well as Elsa Hosk and Izabel Goulart.
“First, I apply the DECLÉOR Aromessence Rose d’Orient Oil Serum to her skin for immediate softness, to strengthen the skin and to reduce any redness and irritation. Then, I apply the most amazing sheet mask–I use DECLÉOR Aurabsolu Hydrogel Mask. I apply to skin and leave on for 15 minutes to sit. This sheet mask is phenomenal as it’s designed specifically for tired skin. These models had to travel, they had fittings, they had rehearsal – they work so hard! It’s very long hours. The mask is absolutely amazing – the result is skin that’s glowing and radiant and removes any trace of tiredness. Many of the girls don’t need moisturizer or any other product applied after – it’s that hydrating.
Right before makeup, each girl applied two of the Intraceuticals Rejuvenate Eye Masks for puffiness and the Rejuvenate Lip Mask to really plump it up. I use these on all the girls, and always give them some to take with them! These masks make skin look luminous, photo-ready and absolutely flawless.”
