Shania Twain has comeback album out next month and a headlining gig at the Opening Night Ceremony for the US Open. But the country-music superstar’s focus is on staying healthy, despite her busy schedule—and she has some interesting secrets about how she maintains her youthful glow.

Aside from starting her morning with a smoothie (made of coconut water, avocado, and apple) and getting her sweat on at the tennis court three to five times a week, Twain has a simple DIY skin-care hack that will totally impress you much.

“I take sugar and a bit of olive oil or any face cream that I’ve got handy, and mix it with a little bit of warm water, and I gently scrub my face.”

“This is going to sound weird, but because I’m traveling so much, I take sugar and a bit of olive oil or any face cream that I’ve got handy, and mix it with a little bit of warm water, and I gently scrub my face,” she told The Cut.

“I came up with it myself. It’s very hard to find an exfoliator that I really like. I tried so many. I have tried very fine sand before as well, but it’s a little bit too abrasive. Sugar works well because it softens with a little bit of warm water and it’s not sharp on the skin.”

If you really want to get her exact formula down, her go-to olive oil, from the brand Gourmet Living, is straight from Italy. (But, you know, also available online.)

If you’re looking to give your beloved coconut oil a vacation, give Twain’s scrub a try—and belt out “Man! I feel like a woman” for full effect.

Could olive oil help treat cystic acne? Chloë Grace Moretz seems to think so. And if you need more inspo for how to use olive oil in your beauty routine, here are 10 new ideas.
