Imaan Hammam’s Moroccan beauty routine on Vogue

“A people without the knowledge of their past history, origin and culture is like a tree without roots.” -Marcus Garvey. Dutch model Imaan Hammam of Moroccan-Egyptian decent, seems to know that as well.

In their latest video, Vogue’s bathroom “Beauty Secrets” series featured supermodel Imaan Hammam who shared her “No sleep” hacks following her appearance in New York Fashion Week. Yet again the model demonstrated an attachment to her Moroccan heritage.

“I’m from Morocco, where we use a lot of oils: argan oil, olive oil, rose oil. Since I was a baby, I’ve been using oils on my face and my hair,” she said. Indeed, Hammam’s beauty routine consists mainly of rose oil which she mixes with a lifting cream on her face, she also uses rose serum for her eyes.

Makeup-wise, the supermodel doesn’t use much apart from a hint of concealer, a touch of mascara, a hint of tan, lip balm,finishing off with a face mist.

Hammam also mentioned her mother as her beauty role model who did not care what people thought of her. “She wore her hair in a curly big afro, she wore colorful things … just be bold!”

This isn’t the first time Hammam showcased her Moroccan roots. Last year, she managed to spend Eid celebrations with her Moroccan family in Casablanca and shared some of these moments with her Instagram followers.
