Beautifying Like an Angel
Have you ever wondered why the Victoria’s Secret Models are referred to as Angels? If you have seen one up close, you probably know the reason why. In fact, this is an open secret. The models have Angel-like features.
One of the notable admirable features of VS models is their fabulous hair. This is probably a must for everyone who aspires to be one. You can also have fabulous hair if; avoid exposing your hair to excessive heat from styling tools; trim it regularly; wash and condition it; add the shine by using argan oil; spritz it with some heat protection every time you dry it.
When you look at the faces of VS models during the fashion show, you will notice that they all have one thing in common: they wear makeup. They don't go overboard on their makeup, they keep it healthy and bring out that glowy look. As you work on your Angel-worthy makeup, try to look for a powder foundation that matches the tone of your skin perfectly. You should also apply the eyeshadow using neutral-colored creams that match your skin tone.
Another must-have for Victoria’s Secret Models is perfect, straight white teeth. This is important because the models are required to have a perfect smile. If your teeth are not white enough, you should consider a dental procedure known as teeth whitening and practicing oral hygiene on a daily basis.
Work Out Routine
This didn’t come as a surprise, right? It’s quite obvious that no one – even the most genetically gifted Angels – became a Victoria’s Secret Model without having gone through intense gym sessions.
If you're really serious about being a Victoria's Secret Model, working out is key and it is something you have to do it on a regular basis. Hitting the gym once a day is not enough. Angels often visit the gym twice a day, especially when the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show is just a few weeks away.
All the girls you see every year on that prestigious model show are not just slim by nature, but they worked extra hard to maintain that body shape. If you wish to be like any of them, there’s no shortcut. you have to be willing to put in the time and effort.
As you work on your dream of becoming like a Victoria’s Secret Model, you should make sure that you include cardio as part of your workout routine. The best part about this is that you can choose a cardio exercise of your own choice – swimming, cycling, dancing, boxing, jump rope and hiking – and this doesn’t have to feel like a boring workout. With cardio exercises as part of your daily workout routine, your fitness levels are bound to increase and you will also shed some unwanted weight.
Meals That They are Eating
If you think that daily workout exercises are the hardest thing about becoming a Victoria's Secret Model, wait until you find out what your meals will look like. Angels do not have to go on a diet, but whatever they have to eat, it has to be organic and fresh.
Instead of having cereals and creams for breakfast, you will have to kick off the day with smoothies, the white part of an egg, energy bars and juices. In the event that you're craving something a bit solid and filling for breakfast, you'll have to blend your energy bar and juice or have oatmeals. Anything sugary is a no go area.
Lunch and dinner are more or less the same kinds of meals –you should have salads, lean meat and steamed veggies. When it comes to veggies, most Angels usually prefer asparagus, broccoli and kale as well as an artichoke. You can season your veggies with spices, salt and a few drops of olive oil.
For proteins, you can steam or grill turkey or chicken or even fish. Fattier red meats, bread, pasta, french fries, desserts and candy shouldn’t be part of any of your meals. But once in a while, you can treat yourself.
Victoria's Secret Models often have a snack – dark chocolate, almonds, fruits or nutrition bars – every two to three hours. You really don't have to starve yourself to death –in fact, the model's nutritionist advises them to grab a snack every 2 or 3 hours.
This is encouraged because it prevents the models’ blood sugar levels from dipping too low. A snack every two hours also helps avoid cravings of foodstuffs that are not on the list.
You probably know the importance of staying dehydrated, but as someone who aspires to be a Victoria Secret Model, this is something that you should take very seriously. On average, VS models drink 2 quarts of water every day –this means that a water bottle should always be an extermination of your body throughout the whole day.
