At Skin Gym, we love skin care and beauty tips. This week on Model Beauty Routine, we caught up with LA-based model Kelsey Kinsel. Read on for her biggest skin care secrets and exactly which products she uses to give her that amazing glow!
Tell us about yourself?
I am a model and artist based in LA. I love spending my days either painting (www.kelseykinsel.com) or working as a model! When I'm not working, I am exploring beaches, hiking trails, and scenic drives. I moved here recently, so everything is still new to me!
What does beauty mean to you?
To me, beauty is the essence of who you are and is so much more than skin deep. It starts from within and radiates out. Beauty is being yourself and embracing everything you are.
How does skincare fit into your lifestyle as a model?
Skincare is so important! I have pretty sensitive skin, so I've spent a lot of time learning what works best for me. I've adopted the mindset that my skincare routine is an act of self care and it's a daily practice that I love.
What's your go-to ingredient in your favorite skincare?
Right now, it is Vitamin C! I use a serum and it really helps with any redness and dryness.
What is your favorite Skin Gym beauty tool?
I love jade rollers. They're amazing for circulation and feel so soothing to use.
What products & tools do you include in your skincare routine?
Tula Gentle Milk Cleanser, Olay Regenerist Face Cleansing Device, Indie Lee CoQ-10 Toner, Cocokind Vitamin C Serum with Sea Grape Caviar, Jade roller and Gua Sha, Charlotte Tilbury Magic Cream, Cocokind Daily SPF, Kosas Hyaluronic LipFuel, and Mario Bedescu A-D-E neck cream
What is your hero product or tool?
The Charlotte Tilbury Magic Cream moisturizer has been my go-to for years!
Any latest beauty trends you’re currently loving?
Yes! I love that beauty and fashion are starting to embrace "imperfections". Culturally, I think perfection is losing its luster. The industry is moving away from one specific idealized standard of beauty and is slowly but surely celebrating all different kinds of natural beauty.
Where do you go to find beauty tips & tricks?
Online, I love scrolling through sites like Poosh and Goop. There is also social media, of course. But, I honestly learn the most from people I work with on set. Hair and makeup artists are always full of tips and tricks. I learn so much from them!
What is your go-to for relaxing after a long day?
I love making a cup of tea and putting on relaxing music! I've also been really into foot masks lately.
What is one skincare secret you are willing to give away?
Try freezing your tools and refrigerating your face masks! It feels indulgent and also helps soothe your skin.
