Gigi Hadid just shared a ton of her beauty secrets, and honestly, they’re way simpler than we would have thought. In the latest installment of Vogue‘s Beauty Secrets video series published on February 4, the model and new mom walked fans through the post-baby beauty routine she’s been relying on for the rare moments she’s able to indulge in a little “me” time. But it’s not all pricey serums and creams—Hadid revealed in the video that her routine has always included lots of drugstore finds like Cetaphil’s Daily Facial Cleanser ($12) and old-school tricks like covering zits with toothpaste to dry them out overnight. “I always just wanted good products, and I don’t think that you have to pay a lot for that,” she remarked. Now that her time is presumably more occupied with laying kisses on Khai, her newborn daughter with singer Zayn Malik, we weren’t surprised to learn that her skin and makeup routines have been majorly simplified.
In the months since her pregnancy—a time when, Hadid admitted in the video—she used mostly clean and natural products (she called out the skincare brand Oliveda as her go-to), she said she’s transitioned to her winter routine, which consists of thicker moisturizers to support her dry skin, like this Dr. Jart+ Ceramidin Cream.
Aside from tons of expert makeup tips the 25-year-old has picked up backstage at fashion shows and from fellow models like Joan Smalls, another revelation that came from the video was that Hadid got some new ink! While demonstrating how she uses her fingers to apply foundation, the new mom gave viewers a quick glimpse at the dainty tattoo on her inner arm, and the internet quickly identified it as a match to a tattoo her partner Malik also has. The best part? The matching tats reportedly say their daughter Khai’s name in Arabic! We’re loving this sweet tribute and can’t wait to see what other ways the couple plans to commemorate the birth of their daughter. But for now, we’d recommend that Hadid pick up some tattoo care, like Woo Skin Essentials’ Gentle Cleansing Soap and After/Care Moisturizer to keep the delicate script looking pristine. (Internet, do your thing and get word to our girl, would you?)
