Ivory Soap and Foot Massages: Lady Gaga Spills Her Beauty Secrets

It’s hard to think of someone as glam as Lady Gaga mulling over a makeup bag. But in the latest issue of PEOPLE, the superstar singer opens up about her surprisingly normal beauty routines (hint: the last thing she does before bed is brush her teeth!). Gaga, who calls her mother Cynthia Germanotta and Princess Diana her beauty influences, says her mom taught her to wash her face with Ivory soap. But that doesn’t mean the singer always follows directions. When asked how many nights per week she goes to bed wearing makeup, she replies, “Seven. That is not good for your skin, but I’m blessed with good genes.” What is good for her skin? The sunblock she carries around in her beauty bag. “I don’t like to tan my face because it’s bad for wrinkles,” she explains. The natural brunette, known for her now white-blonde locks, says she misses her dark hair when she has to “get a chemical haircut because my blonde hair is falling out.” And that’s not the only damage fame has done: she admits that she’s dying for a foot massage, to relieve her achy feet after all those days spent walking in sky-high heels. But Gaga — whose favorite fragrances growing up were Versace Baby Rose Jeans and Revlon’s Jean Naté — says that above all, the best beauty tip is to be yourself. “Just go with your gut,” she urges. “Whenever you try to be someone else, it’s boring.” Perhaps that’s why she’s skipping mascara and fake lashes these days. “I think it’s more modern not to wear [either]. I just wear eyeliner.” For more on Gaga’s beauty secrets, pick up the March 28 issue of PEOPLE, on newsstands now. Rennie Dyball and Samantha McIntyre

This is actually the first time I’ve seen her look attractive. I think vile is a strong word. Her whole “persona” vs. the real her is what confuses me. She seems like a humble, timid person in interviews, but yet goes around dressed in her lingerie at places like ball games. And her macabre costumes at functions that call for her to just be normal (like her sister’s graduation). She needs to keep the skimpy outfits and theatrics (aka the egg entrance) for the stage. I think if people saw her in a more balanced way, they might not be so put off by her.

She looks great in the pic above, wish she appeared in public like that more!

I also use Ivory bar soap on my face…anything else breaks me out.

Lady Gaga needs to go back to her natural hair color. Its better than dealing with unhealthy bleached hair. WHo knew Ivory soap was so good for the skin? I’m a Dove girl myself. Proof that skin care does not have to be fancy and expensive.
