Nina Agdal has been starting her evening skincare regime at 6pm during the coronavirus lockdown.

Blessed with a “normal” skin type, the Danish model usually spends little to no time cleansing her face before bed, but in a new video for Harper’s Bazaar, she explained that she has been embracing a new routine while spending so much time at home amid the Covid-19 crisis.

“My night time routine is actually brand spanking new. When I’m tired, when I’m sleepy, there’s no return, there’s no going to the sink, taking off your make-up, going through a whole process, practicing self-care and self-love… it’s not happening. When I’m sleepy, it’s done. It’s over,” she said. “Ever since the quarantine happened, I have had the time to do this. When I say time, I mean that I do it super early now. I will take my night time shower, do my bedtime routine, get myself ready to bed at 6pm. It’s been really fun to actually do it for the last couple of months. And I have to say my skin is definitely very excited about it.”

Nina went on to detail her go-to products. She uses Youth To The People’s Superfood Antioxidant Cleanser to wash her face and Neutrogena’s Oil-Free Gentle Eye Makeup Remover to take off her mascara.

“I really like this make-up remover. It’s so basic and gentle. I just want to wash my face, and if there’s anything left over, I just want to wipe it off. And it’s a great price,” the 28-year-old commented of the formula.

And while Nina doesn’t like to spend a fortune on skincare, she does splash out on Dr. Barbara Sturm’s Hyaluronic Serum.

“I literally just take two drops of it on my palm and massage it all over my face. This is good stuff, I’ve definitely seen a difference in my complexion,” she added.

Her other favourites include Superflower’s The Everyday CBD Serum, Mario Badescu’s Facial Spray with Aloe, Chamomile & Lavender, Ole Henriksen’s Banana Bright Eye Creme, and Tata Harper’s Beautifying Face Oil.

Hailey Bieber has shared her ongoing battle with the skin condition perioral dermatitis.

In a new interview with Glamour U.K., the model opened up about her skincare secrets while self-isolating at home during the Covid-19 pandemic and explained that she has a regimented beauty regime to try and keep the condition under control.

Perioral dermatitis is an inflamed rash that causes bumps to develop around the mouth, as well as an uncomfortable burning sensation or itching. Antibiotics and topical steroid creams are usually used to treat the condition, however, using fragrance-free skincare products can help too.

“I have perioral dermatitis, so certain products irritate my skin, giving me a horrible itchy rash around my mouth and eyes,” Hailey told the magazine. “I always try to avoid fragrance in products as it’s too much on the skin. However, I don’t always know what’s being put on my skin as I work with lots of different make-up artists.”

The star, who is currently in lockdown in Los Angeles at her home with husband Justin Bieber, also said that pollution can also have a negative effect on her complexion and accidentally gave fans an insight into any future family plans with the Canadian popstar.

“I’m on a birth control now where I don’t have a period, but I still feel symptoms of PMS (pre-menstrual syndrome) and this can also affect my skin too. My skin actually stays a lot better in Canada where there’s cleaner air, than when I’m in New York or Los Angeles,” the 23-year-old commented.

Elsewhere in the interview, Hailey swore by formulas from Dr. Barbara Sturm’s luxury skincare brand, and said she applies the products to her face when it’s still damp, so “that it drinks up more of the nutrients from the moisturiser”.

Katie Holmes keeps her prom dress in storage

Katie Holmes won’t ever let go of her prom dress from 1997.

The Dawson’s Creek actress is known for her chic yet relaxed aesthetic, famously pulling off a Khaite cashmere bra and cardigan last August.

But when it comes to her favourite outfits, Katie admitted in an interview for the April 2020 issue of U.S. InStyle magazine that she still loves the “grunge” look she wore to her senior dance in the late 1990s.

“I went through this phase as a kid where I changed my clothes 10 times a day. I think I drove my mother crazy,” she shared of experimenting with fashion while growing up in Ohio. “But I loved my prom dress senior year. It was a long gold lace dress from Cache, that store in the mall. This was 1997, so it was grunge time. Was I cool enough to wear my dress with Doc Martens? No, I wasn’t. Did I want to? Yes, I did. I still have it in a storage unit.”

Elsewhere in the chat, Katie opened up about how she incorporates self-care into her daily routine. She’s a big fan of dance and boxing classes, as well as hot yoga, and since turning 41 in December, has put more effort into her skincare regime.

“I’m basically always putting lotion on,” the star laughed. “I do all that Dr. Barbara Sturm stuff: hyaluronic, face brightening, face cream, skin cream. It’s so vain. But that happens. It kind of hits you…. I used to get away with no make-up. When I was a teenager and a young actress, it was about being sort of grungy. Now I’m like, ‘Oh god, I have to do stuff!’ It sounds so superficial.”

Liv Tyler is certain she would have been a facialist if she didn’t get into acting.

The Leftovers actress has long had an interest in beauty products, having been fascinated by her mother and grandmother’s respective routines, and also served as a brand ambassador for Givenchy’s perfume and cosmetics for a decade beginning in 2003.

In a new tutorial for Vogue.com, Liv shared that she enjoys trying out new formulas and has a very dedicated daily regime.

“My secret obsession and passion of my whole life has been skincare. I think I would have become a facialist if I didn’t start acting,” she smiled.

Liv went on to detail the key products she uses and praised Astara’s Blue Flame Purification Mask, Avene’s Extremely Rich Compensating Cream, and Dr. Barbara Sturm’s Hyaluronic Serum. But the star swears by regular use of Talika’s Eye Therapy Patches too.

“One great trick, if you get puffy eyes, which I get whenever I eat anything with salt in it, or when I’m flying or anything, is to put this sort of eye-patchy things under your eyes. I keep mine in the fridge. And sometimes on set, if I have a really early pick-up, like a 5.30 am pickup which is really brutal… I wear these to work sometimes in the car,” the 42-year-old commented.

Elsewhere in the video, Liv explained that she can do up to 25 steps in her beauty regime, with other notable products in her bathroom cabinet including Visine’s Original Redness Relief Eye Drops, Dr. Barbara Sturm’s Glow Drops, Rodial’s Diamond Liquid Concealer, and Rodin’s Face Oil.

Yet, at the end of the day, the mother-of-three believes abiding by a healthy lifestyle is just as important when it comes to caring for the complexion.

“Water is a huge important factor in having good skin. I know everybody says that but sleep and water maybe are the most important things,” she stated. “Then, I make this crazy green juice which is hard if you don’t have time… this one has celery and cucumber, a little bit of apple, some spinach or kale. Green things, your body loves green things.”

Adwoa Aboah decided to shave her head because she was “bored” of trying to fit in.

The British model has quickly risen up the ranks of the fashion industry, modelling for Calvin Klein, Fendi, Alexander Wang, Kenzo and Erdem, as well as fronting Edward Enninful’s first U.K. Vogue cover in December 2017.

Adwoa is immediately recognisable for her freckles and very short crop, and has now shared that she is pleased to stand out from the crowd.

“I decided to cut my hair just because I was so bored of trying to fit in, really, and changing my hair to suit everyone else,” she said in a beauty tutorial for Vogue.com. “So, I decided to shave it off as like a new start.”

For a long time, Adwoa bleached her eyebrows a platinum shade, but recently decided to go back to her natural colour. She uses to Revlon’s ColorStay Brow Pencil to fill in her arches to make them appear even darker and the Brow Tamer Grooming Gel from Marc Jacobs Beauty.

“I spend a lot of time bleaching my eyebrows but now I’m quite obsessed with having dark eyebrows,” the 26-year-old commented.

Elsewhere in the video, Adwoa explained that she has a few go-to skincare products, and likes Dr. Barbara Sturm’s Enzyme Cleanser. She is also a fan of the Dew Drops Coconut Gel Highlighter from Marc Jacobs Beauty, Glossier Cloud Paint in Haze, Charlotte Tilbury’s Beach Stick, as well as using Jacobs’ Highliner Gel Eye Crayon in Out of The Blue, a cobalt colour, on her eyes.

“I just think there’s no real rules when applying make-up,” she smiled. “I learned a lot of things from kind of watching make-up artists on set, and just kind of seeing what they do, the more kind of simpler things I suppose… Watching my make-up artist, who I use all the time. She’s helped me a lot in terms of what stuff I can do myself.”

Alessandra Ambrosio is very thankful to see “bushy” eyebrows have made a major comeback.

The Brazilian supermodel, who hung up her Angel wings following 17 shows for Victoria’s Secret in 2017, continues to be one of the most sought-after names in the industry.

Having spent hundreds of hours in the make-up chair, Alessandra has tried out all sorts of beauty trends, but she has now shared that she is happy to see bold brows return.

“I’m from the ’80s, so in the ’90s when I started modelling, there was almost no eyebrows,” she said in a video tutorial for Vogue.com. “That was the trend, having like really fine eyebrows. Thankfully, they (are) still here ’cause now it’s all about a bushy eyebrow.”

Alessandra went on to share that she simply uses a brow gel to groom her signature arches as part of her “beachy, Brazilian” make-up routine. The mother-of-two also swears by preparing her skin with Dr. Barbara Sturm’s Sun Drops and Beauty Counter’s SPF20 tinted moisturiser, making sure to tap in gently to the skin underneath her eyes.

“When you’re near the eyes, just use your ring finger, ’cause it’s the weakest. It’s nice for the eyes and it doesn’t create wrinkles,” the 38-year-old advised.

Elsewhere in the demonstration, Alessandra explained that NARS’ Lipstick in Dolce Vita, a dusty rose shade, is her favourite lip product, while to achieve her signature sun-kissed look, she applies a combination of Costa Brazil’s Kaya Jungle Firming Body Oil with Charlotte Tilbury’s Supermodel Body Highlighter.

“I like to keep it nice and moist, and shiny and pretty and glowy. You know, you want to get that glow,” she said, adding that she is also a fan of Chanel’s Soleil Tan de Chanel in Bronze Universel. “It smells really good. I don’t even know what it smells like, but I think it’s the product that smells better than anything else!”
