The Miracle Oil That Does It All for Helen Mirren

"There's nothing sexy about doing a nude scene. It's rather uncomfortable. I like dressing up rather than dressing down."

Helen Mirren, a true icon of the silver screen with the Triple Crown of Acting (Academy Award, Emmy Award, and Tony Award), recently made a revelation that has taken the entertainment world by storm. Despite being 78, Mirren looks stunning with her poise, captivating charm, and undeniable allure. But the star of The Queen doesn’t comply with Hollywood’s beauty standards, rejects the term ‘anti-aging’, and has interestingly attributed her ever-so-youthful glow to a miracle oil.

The versatile actress has left a mark on the entertainment world with her stellar performances in movies like Woman in Gold, The Good Liar, Hitchcock, Collateral Beauty, and Age of Consent. She began her acting career with the National Youth Theater’s Antony and Cleopatra, playing the Egyptian queen Cleopatra at the age of 18. She has since acted in over 65 films and won multiple awards, including four Emmys, an Oscar, and countless nominations in a career spanning 60 years.

When asked about her stunning looks, the Prime Suspect actress shared her favorite skincare, makeup, and hair products in a recent interview. Mirren has always been open about what works for her and what doesn’t. Recalling a fond childhood memory, she revealed, with sheepish laughter, how she used a gravy browning sauce once on her legs to give them a suntan and failed horribly at the attempt. But that’s Helen Mirren for you—experimental and unapologetically herself!

But what’s got the world talking is her revelation of a miracle oil she uses for multiple purposes. Mirren swears by it, and it is none other than the humble castor oil. Not only does she use it to moisturize her skin, but she also uses “a tiny bit” of it on her hair to give it a shine and a little separation. “Castor oil’s amazing,” she told Vogue recently. “I use a little bit in my hair—very, very little.” She added. The actress also applies the oil on her eyebrows, eyelashes, and fingernails. And going by her stunningly healthy skin and luscious hair, it seems to work wonders for her.

However, besides her skincare routine, her attitude towards aging ultimately enhances her electrifying presence. “Whether you’re 25 or 45, you look great for who you are – not for how old you are,” she said in an interview with Elle UK, and we couldn’t agree more! “I don’t ever obey any rules of any sort,” Mirren added. “I grew my hair long deliberately because I knew that was deemed inappropriate as you get older,” she concluded, setting the path for women to embrace their unique selves at any age.
