Karolina Kurkova washes her face with lemon juice because it makes her skin "shine".
The 26-year-old model is best known for her work with lingerie giant Victoria’s Secret. She loves her work and takes it seriously, so looking good is of the utmost importance.
Karolina doesn’t just rely on store-bought products to keep her looking fresh, revealing some of her key beauty secrets can easily be followed at home.
“OK, well this is really intimate, I’m kind of giving away a really big secret. When you’re flying a lot and you know you’ve been eating bad, or when women have their time, I squeeze a bit of lemon juice and wash my face with it,” she revealed. “Because of the acid it pulls everything out that wants to come out. So it’s not so glamorous but you just shine!”
Karolina spends a lot of time ensuring her skin looks healthy, as she can’t afford to have spots or a pallid complexion. She cleans her face religiously, and also thinks steaming on a daily basis is necessary.
“My beauty secrets, well, I try to steam every day,” she told modelinia.com. “It’s very good for your skin, gets rid of all your toxins, it kind of opens up your pores, makes your skin flawless, it kind of exfoliates.”
