The $8 Scrub Gigi Hadid Swears By for Off-Duty Skin
Baring it all is certainly the overarching theme of Gigi Hadid's new Allure cover story—the most obvious aspect of which is the supermodel's nearly-nude photoshoot. But it also extends to Hadid's beauty routine, which she maintains is incredibly minimal on days when she isn't sitting in the makeup chair. Case in point: Her go-to off-duty skincare product isn't a fancy serum or cream, but a drugstore scrub most of us have probably used at some point in our lives. Oh, and it's $8.
After copping to skipping makeup when she's not working (save for some nude lipstick, if anything), Hadid admits to swearing by St. Ives Apricot Scrub ($8)—an old standby that probably took up residence on your vanity when you were a teen, if you don't use it now. "It's been around because it's the best," she maintains. Given her ridiculously dewy complexion, we're not here to argue.
St. Ives Fresh Skin Apricot Scrub ($8)
Our one word of advice: As with any abrasive exfoliant, most skin experts would agree that this scrub shouldn't be used on a daily basis—doing so could send your skin's natural oil production into overdrive, leading to acne or other damage, especially if you already have blemish-prone skin. Stick to once or twice a week, however, and you're well on your way to a Hadid-worthy complexion.
