Rabat – Morocco has inspired Imaan Hammam’s beauty routine for years now.
Following her appearance in New York Fashion Week, the Moroccan-Dutch model has invited prestigious fashion magazine Vogue’s camera into her bathroom.
In a video called “Long Week, No Sleep,” Hammam shares all about her beauty secrets made in Morocco.
“I’m from Morocco, where we use a lot of oils: argan oil, olive oil, rose oil. Since I was a baby, I’ve been using oils on my face and my hair,” she said.
The top model explains that she uses four types of moisturizing treatments, beginning with a rose oil and a serum, which she massages using a stainless steel facial wand.
Hammam also uses rose serum for her eyes. She leaves it in for a few minutes and adds a balancing face cream that contains vitamin C, followed by a hint of concealer, a touch of mascara, a hint of tan, lip balm, and a cloud of haze for her face.
During her beauty video, Hammam recalls her mother and beauty role model, who did not care what people thought of her. “She wore her hair in a curly big afro, she wore colorful things … just be bold!”
The video, which was published on Youtube, Wednesday, September 19, has been seen more than 300,000 times, generating many positive comments.
It is not the first time that the 21-year-old beauty has given Vogue her beauty secrets made in Morocco.
In 2014, she explained she was adding oils and butters from her mother’s native Morocco into her beauty routine, admitting that the best-kept secret of her beauty is mixing saffron and honey and applying it to her face for five minutes.
“Y’know, there’s a thing you cook with, called saffron. Mix it with honey and then apply it to your face like a mask for five minutes. Wash it off and your face is beautiful!” Hammam was quoted by Vogue as saying.
Dutch-Moroccan model Imaan Hammam has quickly found her place in the world of fashion. At only 21, she has already walked on the podiums of the greatest creators, like Givenchy, Alexander McQueen, and Versace. She is also the first Arab woman to represent the famous lingerie brand Victoria’s Secret.
In 2017, Hammam appeared on the covers of nine different international Vogue publications, giving her the most international covers.
