Audrey Hepburn's Skin Care Essential

I watched the charming film Charade two nights ago featuring a dashing Cary Grant and a stunning Audrey Hepburn. I especially enjoyed the scene where Grant takes a shower with all his clothes on as an amused Hepburn looks on! Not only does Audrey wear the chicest costumes (including a black fur ski ensemble and a tailored cherry-red coat paired with a turban-ish leopard hat), but her skin also glows with porcelain perfection. There is not a line, a blemish, or a dark shadow in sight. I immediately set out to do some investigative work on what products she used to keep her skin so beautiful and youthful. I quickly found out from a few different websites that she favored Erno Laszlo products, which were also Marilyn Monroe's faves.* Specifically, Audrey used the Sea Mud Soap to cleanse her face. The exfoliating bar is a midnight black color, and it's composed of dead sea minerals to clear pores of oil and debris. Though it looks like it might be a little messy, with Audrey's highest endorsement I will definitely try it out.
