We are here to give you the latest beauty trends models are loving right now. This week on Model Beauty Routine, we caught up with LA-based model Terrell. Read on for his biggest skin care secrets and exactly which products he uses to ensure he stays fresh faced and looking like a baddie!
Tell us about yourself?
I’m Terrell, born in Texas and raised in Virginia. My passion from a young age has been singing and performing, it comes from being in a musical family on both sides. It was the best thing ever! I was always in the house either singing (or forcing my brother to sing with me) or putting on some sort of production. I always knew I wanted to move to LA at some point in my life and pursue entertainment. I moved here when I was 22 for music and also fell into the modeling world and I love it. I love creating art in any form. Now i’m living my dream as a creative!
What does beauty mean to you?
Beauty means seeing and highlighting everything that makes you feel amazing. I feel the most beauty within myself when I nurture all parts of me that I love.
How does skincare fit into your lifestyle as a model?
Skincare is so essential when it comes to being a model. I’m 100% more confident in front of the camera when I know i’ve taken care of my skin. I’m happy I’m into skincare in general, so there’s never any pressure to get my skin together. It’s always fun.
What's your go-to ingredient in your favorite skincare?
I have two. The first is hyaluronic acid. I use a hyaluronic acid serum with my moisturizer always! Such a basic yet effective ingredient. Also salicylic acid, I’m a guy with facial hair who shaves a lot, so my toner has to have salicylic acid to exfoliate and prevent ingrown hairs. These two are a must for me.
What is your favorite Skin Gym beauty tool?
I’ve been using the Bian Gua Sha Tool to massage the tension from my forehead. It feels amazing after a long day, and so relaxing
What products & tools do you include in your skincare routine?
I’ve started getting into facial cupping, it’s been bringing more life to my face and it feels therapeutic. I use mostly my hands though when i’m doing skincare. I always have to have my Paula’s Choice 2% BHA Liquid, eye serum and Hyaluronic Acid serum in my routine. Essentials!
What is your hero product or tool?
I’d have to say it’s the CeraVe acne foaming cream cleanser. It’s not stripping, but still cleanses amazingly and help keeps my acne under control. CeraVe is the goat
Any latest beauty trends you’re currently loving?
I love the fact that clean, fresh-faced beauty is in right now. That look suits everyone, I love a natural looking glow!
Where do you go to find beauty tips & tricks?
Definitely YouTube. I learn everything from them. From hair, to skin/makeup, it’s literally a guide to being a baddie. It never fails me.
What is your go-to for relaxing after a long day?
I love doing my skincare routine and lighting candles/listening to music.
What is one skincare secret you are willing to give away?
Sometimes less is more. You don’t need an extensive 15-step routine to properly care for your skin. Also CeraVe healing ointment before bed, thank me later.
