Watching countless interviews, supermodel Candice Swanepoel doesn’t shrug off hard work when it comes to her perfect skin and body. She embraces beauty routines and grueling fitness regimes which is what Secret Model Beauty is all about. In a recent interview with She Knows Candice shares her number one beauty tip which is washing off her makeup as soon as possible, stating, “I wash my face as soon as I finish work because we have makeup on every day. It’s really important to keep it clean.”
Among other tricks in her skin arsenal she also uses body scrubs, “Body-wise, I moisturize a lot and I do a lot of scrubs to renew skin.” Exfoliating is a model must to keep skin looking fresh and is also an SMB favorite glowing skin tip.
Of course, washing your makeup off every day and exfoliating feels like ‘duh’ beauty statements. However, keeping your pores clean sooner rather than waiting til bedtime as well as not skipping your weekly scrub fest may be just the trick to having a perfectly clear complexion like Candice’s.
When it comes to fitness boxing is Candice’s go-to. Not only mentioning boxing in the She Know’s interview, she tells Allure Magazine what she does to get her body ready for the coveted Victoria’s Secret Runway Show, “I work out like a maniac. Tomorrow I’ll box in the morning and then I’ll do Pilates at night. I also do a lot with resistance bands.” Wow, two workouts in one day is not only ambitious but impossible even for her to keep up with on a daily basis. When not preparing for the star-studded lingerie fashion show she’ll take a run on the beach or bring small weights when traveling to make sure she keeps a routine.
