Irina Shayk swears by using gold-infused face masks after long-haul travel

Irina Shayk resets her skin after long-haul travel by using a gold-infused face mask.

The Russian supermodel is one of the most sought-after names in the fashion world, having landed campaigns for the likes of Intimissimi lingerie, Versace, and Burberry.

Irina's busy schedule means she often has to travel by plane, and in a new interview with British Vogue, explained that she uses luxury skincare products to combat the drying conditions of very long flights.

"I always make sure I moisturise my skin a lot when I travel, as the air on a plane is really dry. To revive my skin after long-distance flights, I use special masks, like Mimi Luzon's Sparkling Champagne Mask - it moisturises and refreshes the skin and gives it a healthy glow," she shared. "When I travel for work, I always see my beauty queen, Mimi Luzon, and do 24-carat gold mask treatments for extra glow."

The Mimi Luzon Sparkling Champagne Mask, which is designed to infuse skin with oxygen and a high concentration of antioxidant botanicals, is priced at $279 (£215), while the Mimi Luzon 24K Pure Gold Dust contains specially formulated powdered cosmetic grade gold leaf that, when added to moisturiser, is claimed to "improve the skin's appearance by tightening and smoothing wrinkles, improving localised blood circulation and metabolism and giving the skin a natural glow". The 24K Pure Gold Dust costs $149 (£115).

Elsewhere in the chat, Irina insisted that the rest of her skincare routine is rather minimal. To tackle any puffiness, she will simply run an ice cube over her face, while she avoids wearing make-up when off-duty.

"Usually I don't wear make-up during the day, or if I do, (I) use a tiny bit of concealer for the under-eye area," the 34-year-old added.
