Fitness blogger and model Adrianne Ho looks for beauty and skincare products that work just as hard as she does
BY Carly Ostroff
As anyone who’s browsed her website, Sweat the Style, knows fitness blogger and model Adrianne Ho is the picture of health. Her regular post-workout glow aside, looking good begins from within for the Toronto-born, Los-Angeles-based 28-year-old.
“It’s important to eat well, drink enough water and get lots of sleep; that’s the way to put any face forward,” says Ho, a former The Kit cover girl who launched her blog in 2013. If Ho has the toned abs and sculpted legs to show for her interval training and boxing regimen, she also has the dewy complexion, groomed brows and glossy hair of someone who has searched out the best sunscreens, mascaras and BB creams to withstand her active lifestyle.
As a long-time health advocate, Ho is conscious of what’s in the beauty products she uses, and she treats her skin well. “I feel like if you’re putting something on your skin, it should be as natural and as nourishing as possible,” she says. “I’m always on the lookout for alternatives that have fewer chemicals.” In the same vein, when she’s working out first thing, she’ll go with a fresh, makeup-free face. That said, after a full day at the office (castings, shoots) she’ll just quickly wipe her skin before hitting the gym. “I’ll usually still have a bit of eyeliner or mascara left on,” she says, nonchalantly.
Growing up, she wasn’t so laid-back about her appearance. “When I was younger, I always wanted something else from what I had, so I would straighten my hair or try to change my features,” says Ho, whose background is French and Chinese. “Now that I’m getting older, going with my natural look has become my best approach for beauty.” That includes air-drying her naturally wavy hair, which she washes daily after her workouts, and highlighting features without trying to alter them. She looks to pro athletes for beauty inspiration. “I love how most athletes’ beauty looks are usually kept natural and effortless. I think [WNBA player] Sky Diggins is really beautiful.”
Putting health and fitness first is Ho’s beauty secret: “At the end of the day, if your skin isn’t healthy and doesn’t have a natural glow, no makeup is going to give you something totally different.”

Fashion can be, in a word, fickle. It was only a handful of years ago that designers were skewering sweatpants in public, decrying them as a "sign of defeat", and editors left and right were equating the sight of leggings with the coming apocalypse.
Fast forward just a few years and we're plunking down (considerable) change for demi-couture sneakers, all in the name of athleisure. We seamlessly mix Supreme and Stella McCartney, we scan Net-a-Porter for Nike exclusives every bit as much as we do Nicholas Kirkwoods. On a larger scale, we point to what's hopefully, the beginnings of the democratization of fash-un (dramatic arm gestures required), and ergo, its digitization as the root cause. Oh, and the likes of Adrianne Ho, founder of Sweat the Style and fitness model, who makes the concept of being ready to run a marathon at a moment's notice (courtesy of her unofficial uniform of a sports bra, leggings, sneakers) that much more appealing.
We reunited with Ho (we spent a week with the model in St. Barths not all that long ago) at a suite at the Chateau Marmont, where the bicoastal blogger was holed up for her latest West Coast jaunt. There was ample stock of Waiola coconut water and fresh-pressed bottles of Juice Served Here (well, duh there was), and freshly arranged bouquets in mason jars. Ho's wardrobe was a mix of Supreme, vintage, and in a total plot twist, her own label, Sweat —her line of performance apparel. Slipping on a baby blue, vintage Dior jacket over her wares, we snuck down to the Chateau pool without what we'll call the most express permission of the hotel, before she headed off for dinner at their namesake restaurant. Oh, and BTW, we may have also spied the blueprints for her very own Roots letterman jacket. Yup. Oh, Canada...
