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.
