Karlie Kloss On Beauty: "It's More About How You Feel Than Products"

At 6ft 3, it's no wonder Karlie Kloss describes herself as "more of an athlete than a model."

Starting a career in a body-obsessed industry at the age of 15 has also made health and wellbeing a top priority for the 21-year-old.

"I feel healthiest and most beautiful when I take care of myself in everything from what's on my top shelf in my bathroom to eating well and doing exercise," she explains to Into The Gloss.

"To me, beauty is so much more about how you feel than products, and that comes down to what you're putting in your body and how you take care of yourself," Kloss adds.

So - what's Karlie's secret to staying slender, healthy and glowing? It's all down to regular exercise, a balanced diet and a few brilliant beauty products.

"I try to do something every day, even if it's just stretching or a one-mile run. A body in motion stays in motion," she says.

When it comes to nutrition, Karlie's motto is "everything in moderation" and for beauty, it's "less is more," however, as she's often surrounded by hair and makeup professionals, Karlie admits she's no expert.

"It's about how quickly I can get out the door, which is why I like Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturiser in Bisque," and one of her all-time favourite multi-tasking products is the RMS Un Cover-Up in 22.

"I can use it here on a pimple but also to take my lip colour down a little on shoots or whenever," she reveals, but her biggest skincare secret is having a more natural approach.

"I love all oils, coconut, olive - I actually use olive oil on my skin weirdly enough."

Getting a good night's shut-eye is also a big priority.

"Source Naturals Liquid Melatonin is really, really good. It's a homeopathic solution to help you sleep. I'm knocked out in like 10 minutes; it's really potent stuff, so it's the last thing I'll do before going to bed," she says.

It's always good to hear even supermodels need their beauty sleep.
