Ever wondered how Margot Robbie and the rest of the Barbie movie cast got that radiant, doll-like glow? Well, it's all thanks to a 'special' drink whipped up by skin-health guru, Jasmina Vico.

With 16 years of experience under her belt, this London-based expert was the magical hand behind the clear complexions you saw on screen. And guess what? She's just shared the secret recipe with us. So buckle up, skincare enthusiasts, because we're about to take a deep dive into the world of celebrity beauty secrets. Before the cameras started rolling, Jasmina had the actresses undergo laser and LED treatments. But the real magic potion? A mix of fermented milk and an herbal tea. Sounds odd, right?

In a recent Vogue interview, Jasmina spilled the beans about the mysterious tea - milk thistle. "Milk thistle cleanses your liver," she said. "And a clean liver means more glutathione, which leads to radiant skin." This bitter Croatian drink is quite the super-hero. According to Healthline, it protects the liver, stimulates breast milk production, and helps manage diabetes. Its active compounds, known as silymarin, are antioxidants that prevent cell damage and decrease inflammation. But the regimen didn't stop there. Jasmina also introduced Margot Robbie to kefir, a fermented milk drink that boosts gut health. Described as a 'rich probiotic source', kefir is believed to protect against infections. Plus, Margot seemed to love it!

On the off chance that a pimple popped up on set, Jasmina had a secret weapon ready – a mix of salicylic acid and ice. This combo reduces inflammation and unclogs pores, keeping the skin clear and smooth. But Jasmina’s approach went beyond diet and treatments. She emphasized the importance of meditation and introduced the cast to the Wim Hof Method, a technique combining breathing and cold therapy. To calm their nervous systems, the stars also used a tool called Sensate, placed on their chests. "Skin is connected to your body, and diet and lifestyle are key," Jasmina explained. She revealed that most of the cast were unaware of the gut-skin axis, usually focusing only on facial treatments. It seems achieving a Barbie-like glow requires more than just a dash of makeup and good lighting. Who knew!
