Linsday Ellingson The theme of the evening was “5 Tips I Learned From a Supermodel,” and we learned so much from Lindsay about how to take care of our skin, hair, and bodies—all while leading busy lives. Here are the five tips we learned from Lindsay during the masterclass:
1. Get enough sleep
This one seems like a no-brainer, but it’s so important to get enough sleep! When you don’t get enough sleep, it shows on your skin—you can get dark circles, puffy eyes, and a dull complexion. Getting eight hours of sleep a night is ideal, but if you can’t always get that much, there are some things you can do to make up for it. Lindsay uses an eye cream with caffeine in it to help with under-eye bags, and she also swears by using a jade roller to help reduce puffiness.
2. Eat healthy
What you eat shows up on your skin, too! Eating lots of fruits and vegetables is great for your skin—it will help you maintain a healthy glow. And, of course, drinking plenty of water is essential for keeping your skin hydrated.
Exercise is not only good for your health, but it’s also good for your skin. When you exercise, you increase blood flow and oxygen to your skin, which helps to give you a healthy glow. Plus, sweating helps to flush out toxins from your body—so it’s a win-win!
4. Protect your skin from the sun
This is something we all know we should do, but sometimes we forget. Wearing sunscreen is so important to help protect your skin from the harmful rays of the sun. Lindsay always makes sure to apply sunscreen before she goes outside, even if it’s just for a short walk. And if she’s going to be in the sun for an extended period of time, she makes sure to reapply every two hours or so.
5. Take care of your hair
Our hair goes through a lot—from heat styling to color treatments—so it’s important to take care of it. Lindsay uses a leave-in conditioner to help keep her hair healthy and hydrated. She also recommends using a heat protectant spray before using any hot tools on your hair.
