Shailene Woodley opened up about her beauty secrets during an interview for beauty website Into the Gloss that was published on Monday.
The 22-year-old Divergent star has always been open about her organic lifestyle. Woodley told Jimmy Kimmel in February that she collects her own spring water and has said in the past that she makes her own shampoo and soap. During her Into the Gloss interview, however, she opened up about some of the beauty secrets that she's taken from indigenous cultures.
Eating clay is one of them.
"Clay is one of the best things you can put in your body," Woddley said, adding that she learned from a cab driver that African women eat it during pregnancy and that it "helps clean heavy metals out of your body."
Additionally, Woodley sometimes takes her vagina sunbathing.
"Another thing I like to do is give my vagina a little vitamin D," Woodley said laughing. "I was reading an article written by an herbalist I studied about yeast infections and other genital issues. She said there’s nothing better than vitamin D. If you’re feeling depleted, go in the sun for an hour and see how much energy you get. Or, if you live in a place that has heavy winters, when the sun finally comes out, spread your legs and get some sunshine."
The Fault With Our Stars actress went on to say that while she avoids using makeup on a regular basis, when she has to do it, she'll only use products from 100% Pure.
Woodley will next star in the highly anticipated blockbuster adaptation of Veronica Roth's novel, Divergent, in theaters Friday. You can read her entire interview with Into the Gloss here.
