If you haven’t heard of 26-year-old supermodel Daphne Groeneveld, here’s a quick introduction: Scouted as a teen, the Dutch beauty boasts over 10 years of modeling experience, walking for designers like Gucci, Marc Jacobs, and Chanel (to name a few). Her striking look — thanks to her immediately recognizable wide-set eyes, full pout, and blond cascading locks — has landed her several campaigns with Tom Ford, Louis Vuitton, and Miu Miu. But her latest milestone saw her grace the glossy magazine cover for August 2021 ELLE. 

Undoubtedly, she’s already marked her place in the fashion industry, but her skincare secrets are just arriving at the forefront. Read about the five skincare essentials that help Groeneveld retain her flawless supermodel complexion or watch the video here

Function of Beauty Custom Facial Cleanser

Always starting her morning with a clean face, Groeneveld uses a custom-made cleanser that she created on the Function of Beauty site. “My goals are to hydrate my skin and to get a deep cleanse and obviously to tighten my skin a little bit,” she told ELLE. Twice each day (in the morning and evening), she massages the product into her skin with a reusable face halo wipe. 

111Skin Sub Zero De-Puffing Eye Mask

Groeneveld swears by this product to treat her under-eye bags. Usually, she leaves the maks on for 20 minutes. 

Kiehl’s Daily Reviving Concentrate 

Time for a face massage, but the model adds a slight twist. “A makeup artist once told me to put my face tools in a bowl with ice and honestly it's such a game-changer,” Groeneveld said. “Now these are nice and cold, and it really helps to de-puff and tighten your skin and makes you ready for the day.” Before using her tools, she massages her favorite Kiehl’s oil into her face and neck.

Augustinus Bader The Rich Cream 

To hydrate her skin, Groeneveld applies just one pump of her favorite moisturizer. “I've been using this product for a very long time and I highly, highly recommend it,” she said. “It's truly the only moisturizer that I use in the morning and at night.”

Solid & Striped Face Sunscreen

Finally, Groeneveld ends her skincare routine with her go-to SPF. “What I learned from my mum is to always use sunscreen in the winter, in the summer, she's always been super strict on it,” she said. “To this day I'm super thankful for that because it is such a game-changer.” This vegan product remains a favorite of Groeneveld’s because it doesn’t give her breakouts.
