​Milla Jovovich's beauty tricks are awesome (and mimic her diet!)

By Sarah Kelsey

If you're one of those people who can't seem to stick to just one beauty routine, Milla Jovovich knows how you feel. In an interview with IntoTheGloss.com, the 38-year-old supermodel opened up about her beauty philosophy - and how it's got a lot in common with her diet.

"Once your skin gets too used to something it sort of deadens the effect of it, so I try to cycle between lots of products," she said. "One day I’ll use one type of serum and another day I’ll use something else. One day I’ll use one type of moisturizer and the next I’ll do something else. Obviously you should use whatever works for you, but I think it’s important to circulate what you’re putting on your skin."

And it's the same with what you eat. "If your diet is always different, your body doesn't know what's coming at it," she continues. "You want your body to always be working, your metabolism to be high."

The Fifth Element and Resident Evil star went on to extol the virtues of eating well to maintain good health and skin. "My beauty routine has always been to start from the inside out. You have to take care of yourself, what you eat, what you drink, you know?"

She also admitted to forgoing facials and expensive in-salon beauty treatments for ones she can do at home. "Because I’m constantly working and traveling and I can’t afford to go to a facialist and be all sore and red for a few days. So I just use a lot of exfoliators to keep my skin fresh."

Clearly, Milla is on to something. Not only does she look fantastic for her age, but she was a L'Oreal ambassador for a decade and a half, which is like an eternity in the beauty industry. Though, products aside, Milla's glow of late is more natural than ever! The pregnant actress is expecting her second child, a sister for daughter Ever, in 2015.
