Her self-care routine is in the same vein as her work around body positivity and acceptance.
“For me, self care is all about loving myself and feeling good in my own skin,” Bidot said.
“I feel the most confident when I’m by the ocean with the salt in my hair and zero makeup on,” the Miami-born turned California-native asserts. And it’s not hard to see why. Her makeup-free selfies, littered all over her Instagram, are the stuff of envy: no dark spots, wrinkles or pores in sight.
“The products have empowered me to feel confident in my own skin and face anything, especially when I am makeup-free,” Bidot claims. It’s hard to argue with those selfies, let alone the fact that Bidot—in an industry where the median age for runway models is 23—shows no signs of slowing down.
First walking a Chromat show in 2014, Bidot has since starred in global campaigns for Levi’s, Cacique, Forever21, Nordstrom and Express, as well as Rihanna’s Savage x Fenty summer campaign of this year.
But her message hasn’t wavered, even while staying in the spotlight.
“Working with Olay has allowed me to use that platform to reach a larger audience and spread the message that women should be unapologetically themselves,” Bidot said.
“For me, there's nothing more special than being able to look at yourself in the mirror and feel beautiful and feel powerful. I want to help other people get to that place.”
