She’s a Victoria’s Secret Angel, and apparently Harry Styles’ new squeeze, so it’s no surprise that Sara Sampiao feels confident naked! The 23-year-old model gave an interview to Style.com this week, in which she reveals that being nude can feel empowering, and also gave away her beauty secrets on just how she gets shoot ready, from top to toe.
Sara has appeared naked in a number of pics, which may fill most girls with dread, but not this model. “At the end of the day, we came into the world naked, and that’s the way we’re going to go,”. The Portuguese beauty also credited modelling as her self – esteem boost, “I used to not have any confidence when it came to my body—I developed very late in terms of being a girl!”.
So just how does Sara get herself prepped and ready for baring all? “In terms of skin, I try to stay very hydrated and I exfoliate once a week. I’m very lazy when it comes to my skin. For the past few months, instead of putting on a cream, I’ve started using oil from a brand called Ling and it’s done wonders.”
When it comes to a facial routine, she is pretty low maintenance too – “I just wash my face every night and apply a serum. I have been using Chanel Hydra Beauty Micro Serum for a while now.”
The model also tries to take care of her skin after shooting all day in the sunshine too. “Shooting outside, on a beach can cause my skin to get very dry. I try to put plenty of sunscreen on, and I’ll put a hydrating mask on at the end of the day. If I don’t have one with me, I’ll just layer on a lot of my usual moisturiser to calm my skin.”

And how does the VS Angel keep her body looking so ah-mazing before shooting? “Lately I’ve been experimenting. I had to give up boxing as I developed Tendonitis in my hand, which is not good.’, Sara explains, ‘So I’ve started trying all these different classes, and now its summer, and I’ve been surfing.”
You heard it here first ladies, surfing, exfoliating and plenty of moisturiser will have you feeling ready to bare all… well maybe!
