As a self-described “body activist,” Ashley Graham is not your average supermodel. From dominating the runways of Michael Kors and Prabal Gurung to appearing in the pages of W‘s latest holiday issue, the 30-year-old brunette beauty has had a stellar 2017—and 2018 is already looking just as bright. As one of the industry’s most in-demand supermodels, Graham certainly knows a thing or two about maintaining an effortless glow and has the beauty routine to prove it. Here, Graham shares her best skincare and beauty tips, where you can find her relaxing in West Hollywood, and why confidence is the most underrated beauty product.
