Model Gabriella Wilde shares her beauty se­crets

What’s your nightly beauty rou­tine? I al­ways wash my face, even if I haven’t worn makeup that day. I re­li­giously ap­ply Estée Lauder Ad­vanced Night Re­pair as it keeps my skin hy­drated and ra­di­ant. I then fol­low with a mois­turiser.

From sleep­less nights with her son to long-haul flights, Bri­tish model and ac­tress Gabriella Wilde

shares her se­crets to en­sur­ing qual­ity shut-eye

Do you have any tips for get­ting a good night's sleep?

I never take my phone or any tech­nol­ogy into my bed­room. It’s im­por­tant to wind down from all that be­fore I go to sleep. When I’m in dry cli­mates, it helps my lungs and skin to sleep with a hu­mid­i­fier, [but] I also like to sleep with fresh air so, if I can, I al­ways have a win­dow open.

How do you like to re­lax be­fore bed? Be­cause sleep is so im­por­tant to me, I like to make my bed­room an oa­sis ded­i­cated to sleep and I keep all work-re­lated things in a sep­a­rate room. I love scents and use a dif­fuser with lavender oil in my room, which al­ways helps me re­lax, or a Jo Malone can­dle while read­ing in bed. I also try to med­i­tate, even just for 10 min­utes be­fore bed.

How do you keep skin hy­drated and ra­di­ant with plane travel? I keep a bot­tle of my trusted Ad­vanced Night Re­pair in my carry-on for some ex­tra mois­tur­i­sa­tion, be­cause the air­plane is so de­hy­drat­ing. I spritz my face with Evian and try to drink as much water as pos­si­ble and avoid any foods that will de­hy­drate me fur­ther.

Any tips on how to look rested when you don’t get much sleep? My se­cret is to dab Estée Lauder con­cealer in the cor­ner of my eyes or a white eye­liner on the in­side rim to make my eyes look more open. I boil bags of green tea and freeze them overnight so that in the morn­ing I can ap­ply them to my eyes to re­duce puffi­ness.

How has be­ing a mother im­pacted your sleep?

I’ve def­i­nitely not had as much sleep as I would have liked over the last year and I had to ad­just to my son’s sleep sched­ule. When you be­come a mother you can sud­denly func­tion on hardly any sleep be­cause it isn't about you any­more, but I have been lucky as my son is a good sleeper. When we travel he sleeps with me which al­ways eases the jet lag. It’s also a very spe­cial bond­ing time.
