Karlie Kloss shares her exercise secrets

Karlie Kloss can think clearer when she's dripping with sweat.
The Victoria's Secret model has become a fitness icon thanks to her enviably toned figure. The 21-year-old reveals she gets a lot of clarity from working out on a regular basis.
"I like to constantly be in motion, whether that’s taking a bike ride around the city or working with a trainer and feeling like I’m going to collapse,” she told Elle.com. “When you’re dripped in sweat, you feel like you can think clearly. You feel stronger.”
The model has to fit her exercise regime around her career, which takes her all over the world. But Karlie is always able to squeeze a session in and actually finds staying in her hotel room more beneficial.
"I bring two or three-pound ankle weights and resistance bands. Sometimes I get a better workout staying in my room and forcing myself to do half an hour or even 15 minutes versus going to the gym," she explained. "Before I leave for work, I try to do something. It helps me feel better for the rest of the day."
However one downside of sweating during exercise is that it can clog pores, which is lethal for a model who relies on her looks to make a living. But Karlie has her skincare routine down to a T.
"I get breakouts when I wear make-up to exercise, so I clean my face before and after I work out," she revealed. "I also use Bioré Deep Cleansing Pore Strips. I’m always shocked and horrified at all the junk in my pores."
