Tell it like it is. She’s the Hawaiian-born model who knows how to keep it simple. Here, Keke Lindgard shares her beauty routines from city to city and why moderation is key.

My morning routine is …
My morning beauty routine is pretty simple: I begin with a splash of cold water to the face just to help wake me up, I like that fresh feeling. I proceed with a workout so usually don’t like to put anything on my face until after showering. I use the soy facial cleanser from Fresh and follow that with a face oil combo by a local company from Hawaii called Aim Hi. When in Hawaii I use Shiseido Tinted Face stick sunscreen for a thick protection against the powerful UV rays.

My night beauty routine is …
My night beauty routine is simple as well, as you can tell that’s how I approach things with my skin – simply! I use SkinActive Micellar Cleansing Water All-in-1 Cleanser & Waterproof Makeup Remover to take off my makeup at the end of the day. I exfoliate three times a week with whatever exfoliant I have on hand and if I don’t have one I use a face wash cloth for some texture. I use the face oil by Aim Hi again every night and pair it with a moisturiser after work to help heal my skin. I use skin food by Welda during the winter time in New York because my skin tends to get drier and Caudalie Vinosource Moisturizing Sorbet on an everyday basis.

My favourite products for body are …
