Mariah Carey has a reputation for liking the finer things in life, especially when it comes to her beauty treatments. But with such smooth, youthful skin at 48 years old, we can’t help but think her diva tendencies are actually paying off.
Thankfully, in an interview with the Guardian, Carey revealed a few more of her skin tips, even setting one particular rumor—the one about solely bathing in mineral water—straight. “I bathe in milk. Sometimes I use milk as a beauty treatment,” she said, adding that the milk used must always be cold.

Although, it turns out that Carey doesn’t completely dismiss the mineral water rumors. When asked if this speculation was completely untrue, Carey said, “Well, I guess if there’s no clean water and I had to use mineral water, maybe I would.”
While Carey didn’t elaborate exactly what the milk does for her skin, it’s well known that the lactic acid in milk is great for exfoliating and softening the skin. In fact, Cleopatra was said to be a fan of bathing in milk, so maybe Carey is onto something after all.
