Thandie Newton relies on the spice turmeric to keep her skin looking good.
Thandie Newton has a secret beauty weapon - turmeric.
The 39-year-old actress believes the spice is an excellent addition to a moisturiser to help match her skin-tone.
She told Britain's HELLO! magazine: "Olay does a great tinted moisturiser that I add a little turmeric to - making it more yellow depending on my skin tone and the season.
Despite her unusual tip, on the whole Thandie is not high maintenance when it comes to looking good.
She added: "Generally, I am low maintenance, but during the run of 'Death and the Maiden' I had to wear a lot of eye make-up, which meant using a great cleanser.
"I apply Neal's Yard Rose Beauty Balm, work it in, then remove it when a flannel rinsed in warm water. It dissolves everything. After that I just need a few dabs of Olay moisturiser."
