When a famous face retires from the spotlight for years on end and then comes back looking almost exactly the same, it’s hard not to marvel at their age-defying looks. When Shania Twain re-emerged onto the music scene after a more than a decade long hiatus, the 52-year-old singer returned looking just as vibrant and beautiful as she was when she dominated the charts in the late ’90s and early 2000s. Now, upon the release of her upcoming album, she’s dishing on exactly how she’s been able to maintain the title of “the most beautiful woman in country music” with some everyday household items.

In an interview with The Cut, Twain breaks down her easy to follow and affordable beauty routine. “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.”
Her most surprising revelation is that her favorite skin care concoctions come from her kitchen cabinet. “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,” she says. “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.”
Although she looks great on the outside, the superstar is quick to admit that she’s not perfect when it comes to wellness and confesses that beauty sleep is one of her biggest struggles: “Getting enough sleep. I go in and out of different time zones, and I’ve got to turn my body clock around often. Sometimes that means I lose sleep, and boy, when you don’t get your beauty sleep, then your wellness definitely gets affected!”
