Shania Twain’s Secret To Great Hair And Skin Comes Out Of Her Kitchen Pantry
It’s been nearly 30 years since Shania Twain debuted on the country music scene, and the now-56-year-old hasn’t aged much since. One of her many secrets to looking youthful is a product that can be found in your kitchen cabinet.
In a 2017 interview with The Cut, Twain revealed that the one common kitchen ingredient she calls “the star product in my life.”
“Olive oil is everything. I’ll mix olive oil with any lotion for my body. I use olive oil on my face when I’m using sugar to exfoliate. I use olive oil on the ends of my hair when it’s dry,” the “Any Man of Mine” singer said.
She also credits sunscreen, C complex, and her own self-concocted exfoliator for her glowing complexion.
“I exfoliate every day, I wear sunscreen every day, and I use a C complex as well. That’s made a huge difference with my skin,” Twain said. “This is going to sound weird, but because I’m traveling so much, I take sugar and a bit of olive oil or any face cream that I’ve got handy, and mix it with a little bit of warm water, and I gently scrub my face. I came up with it myself. It’s very hard to find an exfoliator that I really like. I tried so many. I have tried very fine sand before as well, but it’s a little bit too abrasive. Sugar works well because it softens with a little bit of warm water and it’s not sharp on the skin.”

In addition to a hair and skin care routine, Shania Twain eats lots of smoothies (she even has a blender in her hotel room wherever she goes) and stays active.
“I always say the tennis court is my gym — I love tennis. I started playing it with my son when he was about 7. I was already older, in my early 40s. With tennis, I forget that I’m working out because it’s a game,” Twain said before sharing that she sneaks in plenty of walks when tennis isn’t an option.
“If I’ve got to go to an appointment, I’ll try to walk there, or walk back because going off to play tennis isn’t always easy when I’ve got a busy work schedule. I’ll wear my running shoes for the walk and pack my dress shoes in my backpack, and build in my exercise that way.”
