You can’t possibly expect us to sit through five days of shiny, zit-free, healthy looking skin sported by model after model at Lakmé Fashion Week and not hunt down the secrets to getting ourselves some of that elusive glow. After much research, pressing questions and persistence, we got ourselves a few satisfactory answers. Here, team BB lists out the five sure-fire ways to get model-like skin.

5 ways to get model like skin 430x550

What: Super hydrated skin
Get it with:  Lakmé Absolute Skin Gloss Gel Day Crème
No matter how much moisturiser you load up on in the morning, the air conditioning and humidity through the day will invariably wreak havoc on your skin’s pH balance. You’ll either sweat profusely or you’ll have your skin sucked dry. Our go-to remedy? The Lakmé Absolute Skin Gloss Gel Day Crème that accentuates your skin’s natural sheen to lend it a glossy look and give you model-like supple skin all day long.

What: Skin that appears poreless
Get it with: Rose water
We’ve spoken about the benefits of rose water one too many times, and when our beauty affirmations were confirmed by one of the models at Lakmé Fashion Week, we were more than just delighted. Rose water makes for an excellent natural toner since it closes your pores while locking in the moisture. With the benefits showing in less than a week, we suggest you employ it in your beauty routine (post cleansing, pre moisturising) ASAP.

What: Acne free skin
Get it with: A home-made neem pack
The sceptics within us tried hard to spot a pimple on the runway, but alas, how we were disappointed! As model Carol Gracias said, her go-to remedy for acne-free skin is our grandmother’s favourite herb, neem. A long trusted natural and anti-bacterial remedy, when used over time, neem in any form (paste, soap, cream, face wash or even supplements) fights acne-causing bacteria and prevents them from coming back.

What: Healthy, well-rested skin
Get it with: Lakmé Absolute Skin Gloss Overnight Mask
We’ve heard about the shows all day and the after-parties all night but what we haven’t got a clue about is how the models still manage to have their skin looking so well rested. While they won’t divulge their secrets, we found ourselves the Lakmé Absolute Skin Gloss Overnight Mask that ensures you wake up with fresh, dewy skin that’s super hydrated and glowing with radiance.
