Cate Blanchett - Cate Blanchett's Diy Beauty Regime

Cate Blanchett makes her own face scrubs.

The Australian actress likes to make her skin ''zing'' by mixing oils with fruit juice and salt after a friend showed her the benefits.

She explained to the British edition of InStyle magazine: ''Olive and macadamia oils are really good for your complexion. Put one of them on in the shower and they make your skin zing.

''I incorporate them into a homemade scrub with grapefruit juice and sea salt - a beauty trick taught to me by a friend of mine.''

The 43-year-old beauty also admitted to a surprising beauty icon - male designer Tom Ford.

She said: ''People always ask me who my beauty icon is - and it's Tom Ford. He always looks superb and his make-up range is to die for.''

Cate believes her skin looks better than ever because she is so careful about looking after herself.

She said: ''I feel like my skin has looked its best in the past 10 years in terms of stability and how even it is, purely because I have maintained a good regime with amazing products.

''And they have to work hard with all the abuse it gets, what with lack of sleep, my children and a busy schedule.''
