First Vogue, now Harper’s Bazaar. 

Filipino model Kelsey Merritt appears in the latest episode of the international fashion magazine’s popular YouTube series Go to Bed With Me, where she drops her nighttime skincare routine.

Harper’s Bazaar posted the video on its official YouTube page on Tuesday but Merritt only shared it to her followers earlier today.

“A lot of you have been asking what my nighttime skincare routine is – and I finally filmed one with ,” she tweeted.

“Had so much fun shooting this in my apartment. I hope you guys like it!”

Merritt was a model in the Philippines before moving to New York and eventually becoming the first Filipino to walk the Victoria’s Secret runway in November.

In the Harper’s Bazaar video, Merritt gives a rundown of her nighttime skincare routine. Here’s how to cop her glowing skin: 

She takes off her makeup using Bioderma’s micellar water. Instead of using the regular cotton rounds, she uses reusable ones.

“I’m all about eco-friendly and sustainability so when I found out about these, and I learned that you could just put them in the washer and dryer. It’s just better for the environment.”

She also says she has stopped using cleansers.

“In my experience, I would always break out when I would use a cleanser. And there was this one time when I got lazy and I stopped using cleanser, and my skin cleared out.”

Merritt learned from a dermatologist that it’s actually healthier for your skin’s natural oils to come out. “If you use a cleanser every day, it strips it of that,” the model says. 

Her next step is an all-natural toothpaste called Schmidt’s Wondermint Tooth + Mouth Paste. When brushing her teeth, she says she does an up-and-down motion rather than a sideways motion.

Merritt then shares she has dry lips and that she owns around 20 lip balms. She mostly uses the Image Skincare lip balm which has SPF15.

When she feels like her skin needs some extra TLC, Merritt uses KNC Beauty, an all-natural retinol infused eye mask. After that, she applies Charlotte Tilbury’s Goddess skin clay mask on her face with a brush.

After washing all that off, she uses a toner, serums, and a Skin Gym face roller. 

“I use an upward motion from my chin and nose … Mostly this motion is for lifting the skin and we do not want sagging skin,” she says about the face roller.

She then puts on moisturizer with an Artis brush, applies an eye cream, and puts on Peter Thomas Roth’s acne spot and area treatment cream to prevent pimples. 

The last thing she does before going to bed is brushing her hair with a Mason Pearson nylon brush. 

“People always ask me how I have silky and smooth hair and this is the secret.” 

She ends the video by saying that sleep is also good for one’s skin.
