While avoiding the sun and consuming plenty of fats were Nigella Lawson’s latest reveals, fans have been clamoring to know all her beauty secrets for ages, and she has spoken about a few skincare tips before.
Back in 2018, in an interview with The Sun, she revealed a particularly unique tip that raised many eyebrows. Apparently, Nigella isn’t afraid to look for budget-friendly solutions to keep her skin glowing, and one such hack includes the use of silicone gloves. No, it’s not that she uses them to apply her lotions and potions, but rather to exfoliate. She turns to rubber gloves that have the textured silicone palms in order to slough off her dead skin cells and get a glowing complexion.
However, be warned — cosmetic doctor Vincent Wong admitted to the same publication that the tool was a bit rough on the skin, and could actually be damaging in the long run.
Nigella doesn’t avoid skincare products altogether, though. In 2019, she raved in a column about a particular product she simply couldn’t get enough of: Garden of Wisdom’s 100% Prickly Pear Seed Oil (via The Daily Mail). The all-purpose product is utterly transformative, in her eyes, and in addition to slathering it on her face, she has also used it on her cuticles, elbows, hair, and hands.
