Actress Zazie Beetz has some of her fans looking at her sideways after she recently admitted to taking birdbaths and accusing Americans of showering “too much”.
In a recent interview with Into The Gloss, the “Deadpool 2” star revealed some of her beauty secrets and explained why she takes less showers to help the ecosystem.
“I actually think Americans shower too much. I like a cat wash—I do my face, my armpits, and my… intimates. I’ll use cocoa butter to moisturize. Nostalgic and functional—and it smells wonderful. Sometimes I use Sabon’s body scrub, but most of the time I just make my own with brown sugar and an oil, or brown sugar and honey. That’s quick and easy. I don’t use any perfumes… they’re so expensive. For years, I have been saying that I want a scent, because I love when you smell somebody and think, ‘Ah, you smell like you.’ But I kind of do have a scent—it’s just from the products I use, and not from perfume.”
The German-born actress explained how the effects of climate change have inspired her to switch to a more natural beauty regimen that is more sustainable for the Earth.
Beetz also shared her daily workout regimen and revealed how it changes depending on what role she’s playing at the time:
“When I was Domino in Deadpool, I was on this really intense workout regimen. In the morning I would do two hours of fight training, which was essentially mixed martial arts plus stunt work. Then, in the afternoon, I would do two hours of weightlifting. That was five days a week, four hours a day, for months. I didn’t have much of a workout routine before, and such an abrupt shift was traumatic for my body.”
