Mary J. Blige Talks Skincare Secrets
The highlight of my Fifi-filled evening—after seeing Mary J. Blige in the honey-bronzed, shimmering flesh, that is—was actually (gasp!) exchanging words with the R&B legend. Once the initial star-struck paralysis wore off, I got a few questions in as MJB walked the red carpet, clutching a limited-edition Steuben Glass bottle of her new fragrance. “It smells like me,” she said of the soft floral tuberose scent when I inquired about her first foray into the olfactory biz. But as I stared at her perfect skin (while trying to pretend that I wasn’t actually staring), it occurred to me that I was less interested in smelling like her than looking like her. “How do you keep your skin so…perfect?” I finally blurted out to break up all the eye-gazing. “Carol’s Daughter Ocean Sea Salt Scrub,” she replied, “and a lot of water. That’s the hardest part. But if you want beautiful skin, you’ve got to drink a lot of water.” Noted.
