Victoria’s Secret Angel Elsa Hosk Reveals Her 5-Minute Beauty Routine, And Where You Can Find Her Relaxing in Spain

The Swedish supermodel breaks down her beauty tips and wellness routine.


Victoria’s Secret Angel Elsa Hosk may be a runway regular, but her off-duty beauty is just as note-worthy. Known for her frosted blue eyes and and long, bombshell waves—which she recently transformed into a tousled bob—the Swedish supermodel, who turns 29 today, effortlessly proves that there is no look she can’t pull off. Hosk tends to keep her look fairly simple with radiant skin and natural lips, and her beauty and skincare routine reflect that simplicity. From her workout obsessions and favorite beauty products to her favorite spa in Spain, here, Hosk reveals all of her secret tips.

Your look in three words:

Mix and match.

Good skin starts with:

Dr. Barbara Sturm anything.

Best advice from your dermatologist:

To use less harsh products.

Best advice from your facialist:

Be gentle, gentle, gentle.

SPF of choice:

Biotherm Sun Milk.

Makeup miracles:

Laura Mercier Contour Kit ($40,


Most underrated product:

Not a product, but the right nutrition.

Never leave the house without:

Dior concealer ($34, under eyes and around the nose/chin, Bite Beauty lip mask on my lips, creamy contour on my cheeks, and Chanel eyebrow pencil.

A good hair day starts with:

Bamford shampoo and conditioner in “Geranium,” because the smell makes me so happy, then a little Oribe Supershine Moisturizing Cream on half wet hair to air-dry.

My hair colorist always says:

Lena Ott at Suite Caroline always tells me to come in every once in a while for a treatment to take out the yellow in my hair.

Nails must be:

Cut and not buffed too much.

Beauty from the inside out:

Sakara Life when I need it, and a plant-based diet as often as I can.

Exercise obsession:

My current combination is Dogpound, Flex Studios, and long runs on the weekend.


Drink of choice:

I’m just a sucker for a good lemonade!

Product that you picked up from the pros:

Koh Gen Do foundation ($66,, basically every top makeup artist’s secret weapon for serious coverage of skin problems.

A woman should smell like:

Subtle and personal, I like my own mix of essential oils. Rose is always a good idea!

Appointment you’d love to nab:

I’ve been wanting to go to this nail art salon down the street from me called Paintbox to do something cool, but I can never seem to find time to do something with my nails, and for work they need to be natural. I might do some serious Christmas nails!

Spa-cation at:

I just went to SHA Wellness Clinic in Spain right after fashion week to detox. It was lovely and much needed. Next on my list is a spa in the Swiss Alps.

TSA-friendly essentials:

Sakara Life Beauty+Detox Water Concentrates are travel friendly; you just add them to water.

In-tub must-read:

I prefer audiobooks in the tub so I can have my eyes closed in the dark with some candles lit.


Best advice from mom:

Follow my heart, and be myself always.

Best-kept beauty secret:

Epsom salt!

Beauty myth you’d like to debunk:

Lying the sun is not good for you.
