My Beauty Routine: Lucca Kjærgaard
When you’re a model, constant hair styling and makeup on set can leave your skin and hair looking dull, so these girls and guys know a thing or two about beauty. Lucca Kjærgaard took part in Elite Model Look in 2016, when the World Final was held in Lisbon, Portugal. She won a place in the Top 15, winning a model contract with Elite Model Management. We sat down with her to find out how she keeps her skin and hair fresh between model jobs.
What is the best thing you can do for your skin?
When it comes to skincare I find that less is more. Whenever I use to many products on my face I tend to break out. I always make sure to use a facemask at least once a week and I clean my face every morning and evening.
What is your skincare routine?
I always start off the day with splashing some cold water in my face, it helps me wake up and it is very refreshing! After that I apply lotion or sunscreen and moisturize my lips and then I am done. In the evening, after I have removed my makeup I cleanse my face with a facial soap from Clinique, then I use a Clinique clarifying lotion and face gel, and an eye cream from Origins. Sometimes if my skin is breaking out a lot, I use a spot treatment for the areas in need.
Have you ever had a facial?
I have had a facial and I think everyone should have one. It is the most relaxing thing ever and your skin is soft for days after! I don’t get regular treatments though, I take care of my skin myself although I once struggled with acne I have now found a routine that fits my skin.
Do you use sun protector in summer?
I ALWAYS use sun protector in the summer. In Denmark, it is often very cloudy and lots of people forget that the sun still comes through. I always apply a special sunscreen in my face that is without perfume and parabens.
Do you use any masks or special products?
What’s the biggest hair transformation you ever had?
I got 35 cm of hair cut off the first day in the Elite Model Look Final! I surprisingly did not mind because my hair grown very fast and I recently cut another 30cm off and donated it to charity, which is a thing I have been wanting to do for many years.
What is your favourite hairstyle?
I usually wear my hair loose and straight, but I also enjoy having my hair up in a bun. Ever since I was young I always thought that the Youtube star Zoella had really pretty hair. It looks so strong and healthy. I really like the sort of messy style that she haves.
What is the best advice you ever got for your hair?
Don’t shampoo too much! It is very harsh on your hair and you should not shampoo more than three to four times a week.
What do you use on your hair?
I care a lot about my hair! I shampoo and condition every other day with my favourite set from Bed Head and I use a hair mask about twice a week. After I shower, I use Moroccan Oil in my hair. Also a thing I really recommend is getting a sun protecting oil for your hair. I use one from KIKO that I really like.
