Meghan Markle is a beauty.
Those shiny, bouncy locks, perfect brows, that aquiline nose. The sparkly, mischievous eyes, the full mouth and of course - that impossible dewy, fresh skin. We might not never attain her incredible bone structure, but it turns out we can all get the Meghan Markle glow.
Better still, doing so will take remarkably little effort and even less cash.
According to Nichola Joss, the facialist who cares for Meghan's skin (and her gal pal Priyanka Chopra plus Gwyneth Paltrow amongst others), that golden glow is likely due to Meghan's love of home-made skincare treatments including a deeply-hydrating and brightening mask which she regularly whips up in the comfort of her own kitchen.
Apparently a swag of Hollywood A-Listers (which is what Meghan was before she married Prince Harry and became the Duchess of Sussex), mix up their own skincare creations and regularly too.
Why? Because they work, says Nichola.
"At-home face masks are amazing, and I fully endorse them," Nichola is quoted as saying.
"They're easy, free, and you have full control of the ingredients you're putting on your skin — which is why most of my clients love them."
Okay - well, they're not exactly free. Those kitchen ingredients have to come from somewhere - but they are cheap, let's face it.
If you plan to whip up your own skincare at home, Nichola suggests that first you stock your pantry with the following:
Coconut oil. It works on skin and hair and can be used a base for any type of mask.
Turmeric. This spice is renowned for its anti-inflammatory and calming powers. Mix it with coconut oil for a soothing, brightening face mask.
Rolled Oats. "Oats act as a gentle physical exfoliant and work wonders on the skin when blended with a liquified base like coconut oil or honey," says Nichola.
Honey. This all-natural gem soothes and hydrates - perfect for dry skins. Mix it with some rolled oats and you'll have a mask that does just about everything!
Egg whites. Long-known for the ability to brighten skin, eggs whites are genius. They're great for visible pores too.
Once the pantry is stocked you can mix and match depending on your skincare needs and of course, your mood. I mean it's not always a rolled oats day right? Whatever you mix up, you will likely see an improvement in skin tone and texture however and quickly too. And who doesn't want that!
One last thing: if you're going to apply these lotions and potions to your face and body, you're best off opting for those that are as natural as possible. Try health food stores or the health food aisle at your local supermarket.
