Aside from upping their workouts to twice a day, the lead up to Victoria’s Secret show also involves heavy-duty preening. Angels and models alike head straight for New York facialist, Mzia Shiman, who has been tending to the skin of VS models for the last five years.
Shiman opts for an Australian-developed treatment, the oxygen facial, to prep the models’ skin. The treatment uses a hyperbaric oxygen machine to deliver serums rich in vitamins and antioxidants to the skin.
The result reportedly reduces fine lines and wrinkles, leaving skin plump and hydrated. The concept was developed by Australian brand Intraceuticals and is said to combat free radicals and restore elasticity.
The rise in popularity of the treatment can most likely be attributed to the fact that there are no real risks or side effects from the treatment itself. As a non-evasive procedure, benefits may not be immediately obvious but the treatment is touted as a long-term skin saviour, aimed to help rejuvenate skin rather than as quick fix that produces specific results.
If you’re after a real-life look at the results, look no further than the faces of the 2015 class of Victoria’s Secret models, including Bridget Malcolm, Bruna Lírio, Vita Sidorkina, Cindy Bruna, Martha Hunt, Alessandra Ambrosio and Elsa Hosk.
