Chanel Iman's Skin-Care Routine is Just Two Steps
Before her pregnancy, Chanel Iman was working out with a trainer four times a week. But the supermodel, who signed her first contract at the age of 13, slowed down with yoga and meditation when she was expecting. “Being pregnant is work all on its own,” she says. “I just try to do something active every day.” Iman has also reevaluated her diet. “I’m eating healthier today than I ever have," she says. "Instead of junk, I focus on healthy foods that taste good and give me energy. I feel so much less sluggish now that I can’t imagine going back to eating any other way."
Here, the self-care moves that keep her mind and body in tip-top shape.
Keep it Simple
"I’m very sensitive to scent, so I keep my skin care simple,” says Iman, who likes hydrating cleansers such as Pond’s ($5; target.com). “It’s all about moisturizing.”
Taking prenatal yoga classes at Love Child studios in N.Y.C. has been beneficial for “mind, body, and soul,” says Iman, who plans to keep up the practice. “They even have classes you and your baby can do together.”
When it comes to fitness, Iman and her husband, New York Giants wide receiver Sterling Shepard, keep each other motivated. “Lately he’s been training in L.A., so I walk up and down the [stadium] stairs while he’s practicing.”
“My back and feet have been hurting during my pregnancy, but I’ve been getting weekly massages at The Montage in Los Angeles,” says Iman, who rubs on Hatch Mama Belly Oil ($58; hatchcollection.com) at home to help prevent stretch marks.
Eat For Energy
“I used to grab fries or a chocolate shake on set, but now I’ll eat nuts or a nutrition bar,” says Iman. Her latest craving? “Açaï bowls. They taste just as good as ice cream to me!”
