Cate Blanchett 'Would Never Bathe in Her Own Urine', Plus All Her Other Beauty Secrets
Cate Blanchett's skin deserves all the superlatives it always gets. I recently had the chance to meet her and sit with a small group of beauty editors for an interview with the actress, and her skin is unbelievably luminous. While I've always respected her as an actress (she owned Galadriel in LOTR) and as a red carpet dresser (ditto that lavender Givenchy gown she wore to the 2011 Oscars), as a fellow pale person, I'm truly in awe of her amazing skin, especially considering the fact that she's almost 43. SK-II, the brand which Blanchett has famously been using for about 10 years--and shilling for the last eight--is launching a new LXP range this month, which includes a cream and serum; both contain concentrated amounts of Pitera, which is the mystical ingredient in all of SK-II's products. So after trying some of the luscious, rose absolute-scented potions, we got down to the business of asking the actress all the important beauty questions. Read on for her secrets.
