Actress Sanaa Lathan swears by the healing and healthy powers of natural oils.
The American Assassin star prefers to keep her beauty routine simple and holistic, using Caudalie Vinotherapie Divine Oil as an all-round product for her scent, facial and hair care regimen.
“Like the name says, this oil is truly divine,” she gushes to New York Magazine. “I was working with the makeup artist Porsche Cooper, and I kept saying to her, ‘You smell so good!’ And she told me it was her oil, so I ordered it on Amazon, and it’s so yummy and has such a light and delicious scent that actually lasts.
“It’s reasonably priced, and I’ll use it all over my face and body, and even my hair. It smells like heaven.”
Sanaa, 46, also ingests Zane Hellas Pure Greek Essential Oil of Oregano, with 86 per cent minimum carvacrol, insisting a few drops keeps her out of the doctor’s office.
“You’ll never get sick if you take this, I promise,” she declares. “It’s like a miracle herb everyone should have in the medicine cabinet. If you ever feel yourself coming down with anything, four drops in water, which gives a bit of a burning sensation going down, will nip it in the bud.
“You have to get the Zane Hellas in particular, because a lot of oregano oils are only 70 per cent carvacrol (the essential oil in oregano) but Zane Hellas is 86 per cent, so it’s much stronger and purer.”
The Affair star also refuses to use market deodorants in favour of oil-based antiperspirants that don’t have aluminum among the ingredients.
“Aluminum is in most traditional antiperspirants, and even if you don’t believe that it causes health issues, just the idea of your major sweat glands being blocked feels really wrong to me,” Sanaa shares, noting she applies Home Health Herbal Magic Roll-On Deodorant to stay fresh. “This is a great natural deodorant that actually keeps you fresh.
“I’ve been using natural for years, and I do know that when you first make the transition from traditional antiperspirants to natural deodorant, your body has to adjust, but this one just works for me.”
