Isabeli Fontana – Isabeli’s Bedtime Prep – Vogue.com
Leave it to bombshell Isabeli Fontana to turn the most mundane of activities into a super-glamorous nighttime ritual. On a recent New York evening, the Brazilian model revealed her post-shoot, pre-bedtime routine—and the easy three-step, ultra-hydrating process may be the secret to the superstar’s lit-from-within glow.
To properly remove a day’s worth of camera-ready high-definition foundation and mascara, Fontana relies on a tried-and-true double-cleansing strategy. First, using cotton pads and a gentle micellar water, she swiftly wipes away her smoky eye, then follows with a refreshing spritz of mineral water and a second pass of cotton to pick up any traces left behind. Next, what true beauty lover’s routine is complete without a selfie-worthy ginseng sheet mask, fresh from Korea? “Make sure you’re alone at home,” says the mother of two with tongue-in-cheek candor of the antioxidant-packed, yet slightly imposing, once-a-week treatment. As for the leftover essence? “Put it all over your body,” she says while sweeping the excess product down her neck and arms.
Just before hitting the pillow, Fontana pats on a light layer of moisturizer, careful to go over those “extra dry” spots, and lets down her natural waves to protect against morning bedhead. Glowing, makeup-free skin in two minutes or less? Here’s one reason to hit the sack early.
