Scarlett Johansson uses natural skin remedies

Scarlett Johansson swears by lemon juice in her skincare regime.

The gorgeous actress is famed for her glowing complexion and even revealed recently she would make a great dermatologist.

In order not to irritate her sensitive skin, the 28-year-old reaches for natural beauty remedies.

“A while back I started researching natural skincare. It's a nice way to treat your skin if you don't want to use all those harsh chemicals that a dermatologist would recommend,” she explained to Elle UK.

“Lemon juice is great for lightening. It can be a little bit stinging, so you can dilute it with water. It's a good trick and nice because it's natural.”

Another easy potion Scarlett has discovered involves apple cider vinegar.

However, she warns the potent smell might put a few people off.

“If your skin is problematic or you're having a lot of breakouts, it's really healing. It's a little bit stinky but if you're not sleeping over at your boyfriend's it's really effective!” she laughed.

The actress always looks stunning on the red carpet, so it’s no surprise she is the face of Dolce & Gabbana beauty.

The label’s global creative advisor Pat McGrath has helped Scarlett learn a thing or two about cosmetics.

“I always thought that you had to pick an eye or a lip. But with Pat, she never follows those rules,” she marvelled.

“It's more about what is complementing the whole look and so I realise that if you really want to wear a lot of make-up and have a dramatic look, it's okay as long as it's done tastefully and it's not overpowering your face. She never shies away from that and it's fun.”

    Driving a $900,000 Porsche 918 Spyder to the future

    It’s more than just its inherent speed, or the whooshing noise that fills the cabin like a school choir jamming with James Hetfield. It’s what it represents in an industry full of skeptics. It’s a portal into the future – a time capsule left by some mad scientist born decades too soon. It’s something that shouldn’t exist. And yet it does.

    5 Unanswered Questions About Jesus

    As Christians worldwide gather for Easter to celebrate their belief in the death and rebirth of Jesus, researchers continue to delve into the mysteries that surround the man. The following are five questions about Jesus that, for now, at least, remain unanswered. In 2008, astronomer Dave Reneke argued that the Star of Bethlehem (a celestial event long associated with Jesus' birth) may have been Venus and Jupiter coming together to form a bright light in the sky. Other researchers have claimed that a similar conjunction between Saturn and Jupiter occurred in October of 7 B.C. Still others have claimed that Jesus was born in the spring, based on stories about shepherds watching over their flocks in fields on the night of Jesus' birth — something they would have done in the spring, not the winter.
