Los Angeles, Dec 28: Singer Leona Lewis is a fan of coconut-based cosmetics and she is so impressed with the results that they give her, that she has also started using them on her pet.
“I’m quite obsessed with coconut, I put it on my skin and my hair. I learnt that from my grandma. I even put it on my horse. That sounds pretty weird, but I put it in his hair and he really loves it,” contactmusic.com quoted the 28-year-old as saying.
She makes sure she doesn’t use any cosmetics made of animal products or those that may have been tested on animals. This, she says, can make it difficult for her to get ready for her performances and music video shoots.
“I definitely am quite strict about it. My make-up and hair people know I don’t use any brushes that use real animal hair and we stay away from products from parts of the world where they’re animal-tested and not humane at all,” she said.
“I’ve only just learnt that a lot of the red pigment in cosmetics is actually from beetles and I think some of the shimmers in bronzers can be made from fish scales. So I like Body Shop products; I don’t have to worry about such ingredients in its red lipsticks and shimmer palettes,” added Lewis.
