Here's everything Gigi Hadid uses on her face
Including the Aussie beauty buy she counts as an everyday essential

As one of the world’s top models and a new mum, Gigi Hadid’s skin care routine has to be two things: strong and streamlined.
Because while keeping her glow in tact is a pretty big part of her job, she doesn’t necessarily have a ton of time to fuss around with a million different products. ICYMI, she welcomed daughter Khai last September, so we're guessing she's pretty busy.
So, Hadid relies on a range of hardworking complexion essentials (all with surprisingly reasonable price points), to keep her skin clear, calm and hydrated. And luckily for us, she shared her lineup of most-loved products in a recent Vogue video.
So, if you’re keen to copy Hadid’s routine, here’s everything you’ll need…
Cleanser: Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser
Hadid's go-to cleanser? A stellar supermarket/pharmacy find. "Whenever I’m working a lot, wearing a lot of makeup, or I’m coming from a shoot, I use Cetaphil because I just feel like it really cleans my skin. I've always really gone for drugstore skin care. I really just want good products and I don’t always think that you have to pay a lot for that."
Exfoliant: St Ives Fresh Skin Apricot Scrub
We were all partial to a little apricot scrub action back in the day, but it seems Hadid's love affair with the stuff was longer lived than most. “I really liked to exfoliate in high school – I feel like maybe I did it a little too much. I would use that St. Ives Apricot Scrub which I loved, I used it until pretty recently actually," she shared. She didn’t reveal what she’s moved onto since, but if you're looking for options, here are all our favourite exfoliants...
Oil: Odacite Mo+P Very Dry Skin Serum Concentrate
Her go-to oil? A vitamin C and moringa oil serum that hydrates, heals and brightens in one hit. “This is Odacite, this is the very, very dry skin [serum]. This is a new bottle because I go through this quickly," she explained. FYI, with a formula as richly nourishing as this one (the name specifies 'very dry' for a reason), you can either apply straight to your face or mix into your favourite moisturiser.
Moisturiser: Dr. Jart+ Ceramidin Cream
“This is the moisturiser I just started using and I’m really loving it," she said of her hydration go-to. "My winter routine is about a thicker moisturiser, because my skin gets so dry." Well, she's chosen wisely, that's for sure; this cream is designed to release new bursts of moisture to the skin throughout the day, to keep dehydration and roughness in check around the clock while also enhancing levels of plumpness.
Lip Balm: Lanolips 101 Ointment Multi-Balm Strawberry
“Another thing that I like to do with my moisturising and my skin care before I start makeup is to moisturise my lips. This is called the 101 Ointment [in the flavour strawberry], but it’s for everything, I think all-purpose ointments are great," Hadid shared. "You can put it on your lips and then I dab it where my skin feels dry; sometimes on the tip of my nose, and I also find that right where my eyebrows start gets really dry – I don’t know why, but I like to sometimes dab it there, because I just think that eyebrow product, like pencil and stuff goes on better.” A new use for one of our favourite Aussie classics? We'll take it.
Blemish Treatment: Toothpaste
Her approach to blemishes is all too relatable, too. “I do extractions myself; I’ve never really had a facialist. I’d rather do it to myself and learn how to do it gently, and then a strange thing that I do which my mum taught me, is I put toothpaste on spots at night and it dries them out. I might get in trouble for saying that, but that’s what I do.” She didn’t drop the brand she relies on, but we’re all well aware of the classics. And hey, if you’d prefer to go a more skin care-specific route, there are also a bunch of drying lotions and spot treatments on the market that should also work a treat.
