HB: How do you stay in shape while leading such a busy lifestyle?
TH: I think you have to really make it a part of your life. The way I take care of myself is a lifestyle. I try to exercise and make sure that I sleep, and drink a lot of water, and wash my face twice a day... all the little things you can do to ensure that you can maintain a crazy life.
HB: What about the workout? Do you have any tips for people who might not have that much time on their hands?
TH: If you have an hour, make time and really commit to that. The hardest part is getting there.
HB: Do you manage to get a workout in every day?
TH: I work out three times a week. I think keeping it consistent is really good, so you make up your mind that you work out three times a week for an hour and it becomes a part of your life and your schedule. It becomes easier and easier.
HB: What about your skincare routine? Do you have any top skincare tips for traveling?
TH: My favourite is Energie de Vie from Lancôme. It smells amazing and it is super lightweight. Creams that are too heavy cause breakouts for me. I really like it because it has a day cream, toning water, a night mask, everything. I just stick to that because it’s easy.
HB: What about your favourite makeup product?
TH: Mascara, specifically grandiose from Lancôme.
HB: If you weren’t a model, what career would you pursue?
TH: See, that’s a tricky question because I was fourteen, so who knows what I could have done. I had no idea yet and I just started modeling, so that’s all I know.
HB: What are your plans for your stay in Dubai?
TH: Later today I’m going to go on a plane and see the aerial view. And then I want to see the tallest building in the world, of course, that’s like super cool!
HB: You’re working with Carolina Herrera at the moment – what do you love about the brand?
TH: It’s elegant, and it’s beautiful. Carolina Herrera was around for as long as I can remember getting into the fashion industry. It’s really for every woman, for every age. I started wearing it at 18 and now I am 21. I find more and more pieces to wear as I grow up and mature.
HB: What about Carolina Herrera 212 VIP scent? What do you like about it?
TH: It’s the scent I shot and that I'm the face of. I also have really great memories with this fragrance. I was smelling it the whole entire film and campaign shoot. Every time I smell it I remember the experience and it brings a lot of really good memories.
