Katy Perry copied Madonna's skin regime

Katy Perry

Katy Perry only started using her favourite cleanser after finding out Madonna is a fan.

The pop star shared her beauty secrets and daily skincare routine. Katy was convinced to try the new facial wash after hearing Madonna also uses it.

“I love Madonna's favourite cleanser,” Katy gushed to the October edition of UK Marie Claire. “Her make-up artist recommended Shu Uemura Anti/Oxi Cleansing Oil. I was petrified because I used to have adult acne but she said, 'Believe me, Madonna uses it,' so I was like, 'OK, whatever she does I'm going to do.'”

The Teenage Dream singer says her sensitive skin reacts to harsh facial treatments. She rarely goes for the latest complexion enhancing procedures, but will have a twice yearly indulge.

“I don't do needles. I go for treatments when I can, but I like things that aren't invasive. I don't even like facials as they irritate my skin,” she explained. “About twice a year, I got for a laser treatment, which really perks up my skin.”

The 28-year-old is more concerned about her body shape than wrinkles as she ages. She’s careful with her diet and adds missing elements to her diet through supplements to help keep her digestive system in check.

“Like everyone I have a four o'clock slump. I take my vitamins after lunch and they give me an energy boost. I have iron, vitamins B, C and D and probiotics, which help with my digestion,” Katy added.

“I crave salt and eat carbs. But I don't crave pasta, luckily. I like cream-based dairy stuff. I used to be more attracted to junk foods but I know I don't have as much room for error now. Your body shape starts to be set at the end of your twenties.”
