Gigi Hadid Reveals the One Beauty Treatment She'll Never Try
Talk about a natural beauty! Oftentimes when we think of models, we think of glitz and glam, but for Hadid, it's actually the opposite. The blonde bombshell recently sat down for a video with W magazine to discuss her surprisingly low-maintenance take on beauty: "I wish I had the energy to do full makeup, honestly; like, there are people that I'm even friends with that are in full beauty, outfit, everything looks every single day, and I wish I had that energy. I just don't." Hadid jokingly says that when she's feeling "cute" or if she gets a little more shut-eye one morning, she might opt for a tinted moisturiser—seriously, could this girl be any more relatable and down-to-earth?
The one treatment Hadid will never get, though? A facial: "I hate facials—like, I'm so scared of them. I just don't want someone touching my face. I get claustrophobic," Hadid explains. We totally get the whole touching-of-the-face phobia that Hadid feels, and consulted celebrity skin therapist Renee Rouleau for tips on how to do it yourself: "Cleanse and exfoliate your skin with a gentle exfoliating scrub. A facial scrub with round particles—I like using jojoba beads— will roll over the skin and break down and polish away surface dry skin cells" (try Renee Rouleau Mint Buffing Beads, $60). After rinsing and patting dry, Rouleau suggests applying an exfoliating peel for three to 10 minutes. Then, after rinsing that off, she suggests applying a serum followed by a mask to help push the serum deeper into your skin. Let that sit for 10 minutes, then rinse and follow up with a moisturiser.
