She’s as well known for her flawless complexion as she is for her amazing recipes, so it should come as no surprise that Nigella Lawson’s favourite beauty tip involves aneveryday kitchen item!
Speakingat a Q&A session with fans recently, the Domestic Goddess revealed how she uses her dishwashing gloves to exfoliate her skin - revealing that it’s her top beauty hack for silky, smooth skin.
That’s right - there are no miracle expensive creams or hard-to-buy serums in Nigella’s world, just a pair of good old-fashioned rubber kitchen gloves.
‘I recently bought some washing up gloves with silicone bits on the palm for scrubbing,’ the 58-year-old said. ‘I exfoliate with them. I like them.’
Now that’s a budget beauty trend we can all get on board with!
The mum-of-two also went on to say how she believes in occasionally indulging herself, and doesn’t think anyone should have ‘guilty pleasures’.
‘You should not have any guilt about pleasure,’ she revealed. ‘You should only ever feel guilt if you don’t take pleasure. ‘In certain moments I do like a bit of plastic bread with a cheese triangle on. That can be delicious.
‘I like old-fashioned sweets like rhubarb and custard sweets. The other day, I did have a great need for some Milky Ways.’
Milky Ways and a dishwashing glove facial? Sounds like the perfect night in, Nigella!
