How model Tilda Lindstam survives the month of fashion

Tilda Lindstam_cc_IMG

The top model reveals her beauty tricks for fighting sugar cravings, skin breakouts and bloat during the month of fashion.

“I drink a lot of green juices. I like anything with spinach, kale, celery, ginger and lemon. I can’t handle too much dairy during the shows because I’m lactose intolerant. It makes me feel bloated and it’s bad for my skin. I love Lindt Sea Salt chocolate, but I had to give it up. Sweet food gives me a massive sugar rush, which is inevitably followed by a crash. So during the shows, I’ll snack on macadamia or brazil nuts and green apples if I need an energy boost.”

1 run = 1 cheeseburger
“I do so much walking during casting season that I don’t have time to workout. If I have time I go for a run, but that doesn’t happen very often – maybe once every two months. And then I indulge in a cheeseburger.”

Staying clear of rashes and breakouts
“I clean my face after every single show. I bring my own Chanel eye make-up remover because I’m sensitive to the MAC one that they use backstage. It gives me rashes and a red face! And there’s not much you can do about a blemish but cover it up with concealer and drink as much water as possible to clear your skin out.”

NYC ✈ London ✈ Milan ✈ Paris
“I get really puffy when I fly. But drinking coconut water and taking vitamin C seems to help. I also use a cooling eye mask the morning of a show if my face is still a bit swollen.”
