Season after season, some of the most beautiful women in the world gather together to showcase the best new designs in the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. This year, we’re giving you a look at what it takes to develop and maintain the perfect look before the launch.
1) Maintenance and Love… Weeks before any show, it helps dramatically to avoid sugary and alcoholic beverages while staying active, both socially and physically.
Sugar by itself may give temporary satisfaction to those stressful days when we need a little chocolate therapy, but over time it can wreak havoc on your skin. Alcohol does the same and also dries out your skin, creating uneven blotches and shiny spots. Instead of hitting the bottle or the freezer isle at the local supermarket, hit the gym instead or use these cool autumn nights to take a relaxing stroll after dinner. Not only will you feel better and more confident, you’ll look better. Social exercise is important too! Studies in the past have shown that having an active social life can lower stress levels naturally, and even more importantly, can build confidence with new interactions. Less stress and healthy eating options = great skin.
2) Worship the Sun, avoid the kiss…. We all know sun damage can build up over time. Make sure to always use sunscreen or moisturizer with sun-blocking elements built in.
Anyone over 30 can tell you, your body changes over time. Sun damage can accelerate the appearance of aged skin, especially as we get older and it takes longer for our bodies to process these changes effectively. It’s better to act on the side of caution and preserve your look for the exciting years to come.
3) Selfie Perfection… Instead of over applying makeup for those nights on the town. Carry some translucent powder to freshen up your T-Zone right before a selfie.
Too much makeup can dry the skin and taking it off at the end of the night can damage and re-clog pores in the process. Most models prefer the gradual touch approach to maintaining the perfect look between camera flashes and fans. A little translucent powder applied artfully to your shiny areas can give you the perfect balance and glow without adding extra weight and texture.
4) Angels Everywhere… Creating the perfect Angel hairdo is easier than you think!
Using a simple wave iron, work on the body of the hair in separate strips while curling away from the face, leaving the ends untouched. Confused? Try visualizing what it would look like if your removed your top-knot and just let it flow down naturally. It’s a popular look that gives the impression you just spent an entire day at the beach, so it doesn’t have to be perfect; just enough structure and consistency to give your hair the right direction to develop naturally.
5) A facial a week keeps age at bay… With all the remarkable products available on the market today, it’s easier than ever to take some time out to renew and rejuvenate.
Korean Air flight attendants long shifts in conditions with low humidity, high stress and poor lighting. Even with their limited resources cruising miles above the earth, they still manage to look like runway models all day. The secret? Weekly facials and “off days” where makeup is prohibited. Many international flight attendants will attest to the fact that their face is the first and last impression a passenger receives on any flight. Knowing this, they pay special attention to routine and application of any product that contacts the skin. After an international flight, it’s common to reward the skin then allow it to breathe naturally before the next round of work. Professional models in the air to professional models on the strip; you’ll notice the change in very short time by sticking to this routine.
