Kelly Gale is a top model by way of Sweden, has walked the Victoria's Secret catwalk four times, and is a fitness junkie. In this episode of Go To Bed With Me, Gale breaks down every product in her nighttime routine that will help you glow like a VS Angel.
To cleanse her face of pollution from the bustling New York City streets and heavy makeup from photoshoots, Gales uses a makeup removing cloth from Face Halo. She likes that she only needs to wet the small, fuzzy puff and it doesn’t irritate her face nor leave behind any redness. While the Face Halo can take away eye makeup, Gale likes following-up with an oil-based remover from Lancôme with a Q-Tip to ensure her eye makeup is completely gone.
Her next step is a mask. “I never used to use mask, but recently, just with work, a lot of makeup artists have suggested different ones that make my skin more hydrated,” she tells BAZAAR about the Tata Harper’s Resurfacing Mask, which she uses four times a week.
While she leaves the mask on for 15 minutes, the model dry brushes her body with the Mio Skincare brush-starting at her arms and working her way around her body in a circular motion. “It kinda hurts a little bit, but you get used to it,” she admits. “I don’t really feel it anymore.” Gale has been dry brushing for the past five years and notes the beauty took help her skin feel soft, firmer, and fights against cellulite.
Once she’s done with dry brushing her body, she reaches for her favorite DIY beauty hack: a blend of coffee grounds, coconut oil, and a combination of cinnamon and cypress oils from Now Essential Oils. She uses this custom-made body scrub almost daily.
Once she washes her mask off, Gale locks in moisture with her favorite serum, the Revitalift Hyaluronic Acid Serum from L’Oréal Paris. “I love this one because it’s super super hydrating,” the model tells us as she applies a couple of drops of the light-weight face product to her visage. Gale, who recently used the product finds this formula helps her skin stay moisturized and hydrated in the winter. “It’s really light on your skin and sinks right in,” she adds.
She chases the serum with Dermalogica's Intensive Moisture Balance moisturizer, the product she’s been using for nearly a decade. “If I was stranded on an island, this would be the one product that I would bring,” she says. Gale’s other ride-or-die product is the Försvarets Hudsalve's lip balm, which she stocks up on every time she’s in her native Sweden.
The model knows that good skin is just as much about what you put in your body as on your body. Before going to bed, Gale mixes baobab fruit powder—an antioxidant-rich superfood—into a glass of water. She also incorporates another beverage into her nighttime routine: Four Sigma Foods Reishi Mushroom Elixir. Gale finds the elixir helps her get a full nights rest and doesn't wake up in the middle of the night as often. Whenever she feels like she might catch a cold, Gale reaches for organic Aronia berries to help boost her vitamin C, calcium, and antioxidant intake.
