Models, men and women, go where the job takes them and therefore do travel a lot. Given the nature of their profession, it also comes to pass that their face and hair suffer through a lot with the multiple make up applications and hair styling products. It takes a lot of effort, to then, take care of their skin, their hair, their diet and many times their sanity too. It really helps to keep a well-stocked bag alongside with all the essentials that will help instantly revive tired skin, hair and refresh the mind in between shoots.
Eyes are said to be the key to the soul. The entire face however is the key to acting or emoting.

It is an art that takes careful honing and patient nurturing.
