A Peek into the Life of Model-Athlete Elsa Hosk

Swedish model Elsa Hosk seems to occasionally portray a real-life doll on her Instagram account. With huge almond-shaped eyes and the perfect pair of pouty lips, the stunning Victoria’s Secret Angel certainly looks like one as she goes out and about her model life in NYC.

However, did you know that she used to be an athlete? Not many models can say that, so it’s no wonder that Biotherm snapped her up as its new ambassador! We dug up a few other tidbits about this 27-year-old beauty.


She has a natural Nordic complexion and has to constantly fight the sun

“I have Swedish fair skin, am regularly out in the sun, and wear lots of makeup for work,” she says. “That’s why I look for skincare solutions that do something for my skin and really make a difference. Biotherm is all about that.”


She represents a new generation of women who equate fitness and health with beauty

“I was an athlete before being a model and today I do lots of different sports, like boxing and pilates. Biotherm understands my lifestyle, the lifestyle of an active woman,” Elsa shares.


She believes in living life to the fullest #YOLO

“Biotherm is really in line with my philosophy of life, about living life to the fullest. Being a Biotherm ambassador is an amazing honor,” Elsa declares.

The model-athlete joins Biotherm’s Live More squad, along with supermodel Christy Turlington Burns and fellow Angel Candice Swanepoel. She has already made her debut on Biotherm’s Instagram account. Go check her out @BIOTHERM!
