The £9 secret behind Emily Ratajkowski's famously plumped pout

A great beauty tip.

10 Aug 2018

With her smooth skin, enviably glossy hair and plump pout, Em Rata is beauty goals - and don't even get us started on her mega engagement ring.

So when we can glean an insight into her beauty regime, we are all ears.

While you might expect the Hollywood star to pack her beauty bag with high-end products and designer beauty buys, we were surprised and delighted in equal measure to discover her go-to skincare secret costs under £10.

Emily can't live without Eucerin Aquaphor Soothing Skin Balm. The model and actress swears by the multi-tasking wonder balm for all-over hydrated skin and a perfect pout.

Divulging her best-kept secret, she said: "I love Aquaphor. I use it on my lips, or a little bit everywhere just to make sure my skin doesn't dry at all because aeroplanes are terrible for that."
 
The affordable £9 multi-purpose balm, a cult classic in the States, apparently does more than merely nourish and protect dry, chapped, chafed or cracked skin; it acts as a 'second skin' for damaged areas, helping it to heal and repair whilst allowing it to breath. 

Containing only seven therapeutic ingredients, the balm is apparently ideal for sensitive skin - from babies' bottoms to post-peel complexions (and now Em's lips).

Thanks for the tip, Em!
