71-Year-Old Model Maye Musk’s Nighttime Skincare Routine | Go To Bed With Me | Harper’s BAZAAR
– So as we in New York, there is some outside noise from traffic. And if only they had a Tesla, we would have a quiet New York. Wouldn’t that be lovely? And we could do a video without re shooting every time they make a noise.
(upbeat music) My skincare routine at night, because I’m lazy and I’m quick, and I’m usually tired, especially after a big party, well not, I don’t really party that much, but, (laughs). but after an event in the evening, then I need to take off all this makeup.
So you’ve seen me in full glam, because I’m at New York Fashion Week attending shows and doing book signings. When I was younger, I had that oily patch, and then the dryness. I also had pimples from time to time, especially as a teenager, when I started modeling at 15.
Now, I don’t know, aging seems to work so well, ’cause I’m 71 now, and my skin is better than ever. I don’t go in the sun at all, I wear a hat, I wear sun protection, creams, because I really can’t get sun onto my skin, it’s aging.
So that’s my number one. Number two, I’m a dietician, so I eat very well, and I eat lots of fruits and vegetables and beans, and nuts and seeds, as well as whole wheat breads, and then fish also has shown to be good for your skin.
First of all, I don’t usually look like this ’cause I have these fabulous false eyelashes on. Can you see the difference? If they, when I have false eyelashes on, my eyes look so huge, and now they’re looking a little normal.
So now I’m going to take the skin cleanser, and I’m going to wash my face. Let’s get my hair back. We need it out of out of the way, so that it doesn’t, just gonna open a button so I can do my neck as well when I start cleaning.
Okay, so you can see it is quite a thick makeup remover, and I’m going to be washing my face making sure I get all the makeup off. (water running) So you can see now I have nothing on my face, and it’s completely clean and clear.
So as I say, you can look forward to getting older. When I was a teenager and I was modeling, I had to get rid of the pimples on my face, but there were no special creams then or any medications for it.
So I would put very hot water in a sink, and I would put my head over it with a towel, and steam my face. Things are much better now. My next product I’m going to show you is Pearlosophy, and it’s an eye cream.
The thing is, now that I’ve become a supermodel at 69 because I’m a cover girl, I get given a gift. So this is a gift and it’s great for my eyes, you can see it’s got kind of like a little round, soft round thing, and so you squirt it out, and then you put it on your eyes like this, it’s like a gentle massage on the eyes, it’s lovely, lovely, and then I’ll do the other eye, squeeze out a bit, and then you do the other eye.
So just a gentle cream for the eyes. And for my lips, my lips are always dry, so I like to have the CoverGirl lip balm. I have to keep it on me all the time, because that definitely helps for my lips.
So now I want to show you my night cream. So here I’m using Dior Prestige Le Nectar De Nuit, and this is for, a night serum for the face and the neck, and again, it’s a gift. When I’m given gifts I love to try them, and especially when it’s simple and I can understand what I’m meant to use it for, like night cream.
That’s easy, sometimes there’s a lot of complications in it and then I get confused. So I put some in my hand, and then I just, ooh, feels so good after a wash. It’s nice to go to bed fully hydrated, I also put it on my neck.
The lighting here is great, so I’m sure I’m looking like I’m 25, which is fine by me, (chuckles) so there you go, I feel completely hydrated and ready to go to bed. So as a model, you learn a lot about skincare, because everybody talks about it, you having your makeup done, and someone will put a lotion on you and it feels good and they tell you about it, or sometimes they’ll put a mask on me, and they just say to rehydrate my skin before they put on makeup, that’s lovely too.
Sometimes an under-eye pads they’ll do. It’s quite a treat, it feels refreshing and relaxing. So I’m always happy to try any new things. But I won’t do it before a beauty job, because if I’m going to do a makeup job coming up, or a modeling job, I need a week’s break in case they have some products in it which makes the skin peel a bit, can’t have your skin peeling, especially if you’re doing a close up of my face.
But anyway, even if you’re not a model, you don’t want your skin peeling when you’re going out. So you just need to be careful, if you try new products make sure you’re not too busy that week. Well, that’s my skincare routine.
I hope you learned something, and now I’m off for New York Fashion Week. (upbeat music)
