Leona Lewis: Laser hair removal made me kick off!

Singer Leona Lewis’ main beauty products come from her herbalist mother’s kitchen.

The songstress rose to fame after winning British singing competition The X Factor in 2006. Since then she has had to make sure she looks her best at all times while promoting her music, and it means trying lots of different products and treatments.

“It’s not crazy, but it’s crazy painful: I tried laser hair removal and I almost jumped off of the chair,” she confessed to “I think they have new razors now that don’t hurt as much, but I did it years ago and accidentally kicked the technician!”

The 30-year-old prefers a much more natural approach to beauty as a consequence. When it comes to her skincare regime, her mother is a big influence.

“My main products actually come from my mother’s kitchen,” she added. “She is an herbalist and we make our own moisturisers and oils. The key is the oil though, which comes from my Guyanese grandmother. She had the most amazing skin, and I follow her regimen.”

As well as gorgeous glowing skin, Leona is known for her luscious locks. When it comes to her naturally curly hair, the star goes to great lengths to ensure it looks good in whatever style she goes for.

“My natural texture is corkscrew curls, and I have to keep it moisturised so that it stays healthy,” she continued. “I think oil is the key, and I like to mist argan oil on the ends, and also do an oil treatment once a week.”

Leona went for the chop earlier this year (15), debuting a tousled bob on her social media.

“I get bored very easily, so I like to chop and change,” she admitted. “At the end of the day, its only hair and it will grow back, so why not try lots of styles!”
