Gisele Bündchen's Face-Wash Secret Is . . . Interesting

If you're one of Gisele Bündchen's 11 million Instagram followers, you know the supermodel is passionate about meditation, nature preservation, and healthy nutrition. It might not come as a surprise, then, that one element of Bündchen's skincare routine is about as low-key and down-to-earth as you can get. According to her new interview with Allure, Bündchen washes her face with only water in lieu of products. Now that's one way to minimize waste. I have to admit that this is the first time I've heard of this method and even our veteran beauty editor, Erin Jahns, admitted that it's "pretty shocking." But hey, if it ain't broke, why fix it? To each their own.

Of course, there is more to it than that. She told Allure that she also occasionally uses a facial exfoliant and always uses a moisturizer and eye cream at night. Plus, Bündchen is the face of Dior's Capture Totale Super Potent Serum, so she waxed poetic on its ultra-hydrating ingredients, including squalane and hyaluronic acid.

4. Hydrating Serum

This award-winning serum has all of the high-end ingredients you'd expect from a luxury label—and then some. We're talking hyaluronic acid, flower extracts, squalane, and more.
