I can still remember the first time I spotted Hailey Baldwin on the red carpet.
It was in 2015—so, back when her modelling career was just getting started, and long before she'd achieved Instagram stardom. (Her following is currently at 15 million and counting!)
You know why Hailey stood out to me, even when I had no idea who she was?
It was her SKIN. Radiant, poreless, and like she'd never had a pimple in her life (she probably hasn't). Her complexion was—and still is—utterly flawless!
At 21 years old, a lot of this is just youth and good genes! Le sigh.
But Hailey also follows a dedicated skincare routine... so perhaps there's a glimmer of hope that the rest of us can get some of this glow! "You can never be too young to care about your skin," she told Elle.
A self-described "skincare product hoarder," Hailey relies on a mix of luxury serums, drugstore favourites and a customized blood cream (yes, you read that right) to keep her skin in tip-top shape. She also makes time for frequent trips to the derm and platelet-rich plasma facials (also known as "Vampire" facials, and they involve blood, too!).

Hailey's Morning Skincare Routine
"I should wash my face in the morning, but I usually don't."
Dr. Barbara Sturm Glow Drops: "I start with these Glow Drops by Dr. Barbara Sturm. I came across her stuff through a makeup artist during Paris Fashion Week. Essentially they make you glowy, but they also give you this really nice natural lift."
Dr. Barbara Sturm Hyaluronic Serum: "I use Barbara Sturm's serums. All of them."
bareMinerals Skinlongevity Vital Power Infusion Serum: "And then I use the bareMinerals Skinlongevity serum when I fly."
Dr. Barbara Sturm Face Cream: "I use all of Barbara Sturm's products. Her masks, her Face Cream, her glow serum—they are amazing, and she is also the nicest human being."
4. Tinted Moisturizer with Sunscreen:
bareMinerals Complexion Rescue Tinted Hydrating Gel Cream in Tan 07: "It has SPF in it; it's super-light. I don't like to do anything heavy for every day because I have makeup being put on my face all the time. I have no problem showing my bare skin, and a lot of the time when I'm photographed, or when you see photos by paparazzi, I'm not wearing any makeup. But if I'm not completely bare faced, I like products that are good for my skin."
5. Powder Sunscreen:
Supergoop! Invincible Setting Powder SPF 45: "A little bit of SPF setting powder to protect your skin. It's very important."
6. Lip Balm:
Vaseline Lip Therapy: "I would die without lip balm. My two favourites are Aquaphor and Vaseline Original."
Hailey's Nighttime Skincare Routine
1. Makeup Removers:
Coconut oil: "I'm adamant about washing my face at night. I use coconut oil to take off my makeup. It cuts through the mascara and all the makeup."
Neutrogena Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes: "I'm all about the Neutrogena makeup wipes—they're always with me. I've been using them since I was like, 13."
Christie Kidd Clean Natural Facial Cleanser: "Then I use the Dr. Christie Kidd facial cleanser."
Dr. Barbara Sturm Calming Serum: "I love the calming serum, it's really good. I get really red because my skin gets really dry, especially when it's allergy season."
Dr. Barbara Sturm MC1 Cream: "When I explain this to people, they think I sound insane. She took blood from my arm and put it into a machine that spins it and separates the plasma from your blood before putting it into a lotion for your skin. She takes my blood and stores it, so I'll do it once and then go back to restock every couple of months. It is fascinating to me, and it works."
5. Lip Balm:
Eucerin Aquaphor Healing Ointment: "It's my go-to. I don't particularly use it on my skin as an everyday thing, but always on my eyebrows and lips. I put Aquaphor or Vaseline on my brows before I go to bed, and you can use it on your lashes too if you're careful."
Hailey's Skin Treatments
SK-II Facial Treatment Mask: "I'm big on really nice masks—good sheet masks. I like the ones by Shiseido and SK-II."
Shiseido Benefiance WrinkleResist24 Pure Retinol Express Smoothing Eye Mask: If I'm travelling, I really love Shiseido Benefiance masks for my eyes. I do it on the plane. I don't care if I look like a crazy person."
Dr. Barbara Sturm: "I don't do any extraction facials. I don't think those are very good for you, like I don't want somebody poking and prodding at my face all the time! If I'm gonna do them, I'm gonna let a dermatologist do it the way they know how to do it. I let Barbara Sturm do facials on my skin, only. I've enjoyed the results from her the most. I do the PRP facials or the glow facials because when you leave your skin is literally radiating, so dewy and beautiful."
"I visit my dermatologist as often as possible."
Hailey's Diet, Exercise and Lifestyle
"Obviously, good skin comes from within so what you're putting in your body really affects how your skin looks. I must say, I'm not the saint of healthy eating. I don't eat healthy all the time because I'm still 21 and I think I can get away with the less healthy stuff for now, but I do try to balance things out. A lot of vegetables and fish, not much meat, minimal dairy. I just feel better when I eat that way."
Ouai Thinning Hair Supplement: "My hair takes forever to grow. I take all the vitamins possible, and it still grows only a quarter of an inch every six months. Jen Atkin makes the Ouai thinning hair supplements; I'm taking those."
Viviscal Extra Strength Hair Nutrient Tablets: "And I'm taking Viviscal. I'm really trying!"
Rumble boxing: "I generally like things that are upbeat because otherwise I get bored. I do Rumble boxing all the time. It's basically 45 minutes of intense boxing and cardio."
SLT (Strength Lengthen Tone): "And I enjoy SLT—it's really hard."
Yoga and Pilates:
Hot 8 Yoga: "I also like hot Pilates or hot yoga at Hot 8 when I'm in L.A."
Dr. Jocelyne Miranda: "I'm big on the chiropractor. In L.A., I see Jocelyne Miranda. I've had many people work on me, and honestly she's the best I've ever used. I started seeing her because she worked in a doctor's office I was going to. I used to be a ballerina, so I've done everything as far as physical therapy goes."
