Model Heidi Klum has shared a beauty secret that she has been implementing into her daily routine for years.

The star says she has developed an obsession with cheap, store bought coconut oil.

“I love using just plain, old coconut oil that you get in the supermarket,” she admitted to Who What Wear.

“Especially in Los Angeles right now, everything is so dry and I'm outside a lot.

“I love to lather up some coconut oil in my hair and on my body too.”

The former Victoria's Secret supermodel says she finds the glorious gem that can be found in supermarkets for around $8 a jar.

“It’s so inexpensive and it just makes everything feel so yummy and nourished,” the mother of four said

“In general, I like going more towards the natural things instead of the sorts of products that are full of perfumes and astringents.”

Klum also advised older women to try out coconut oil as its one habit she has had difficulty shaking after many years.

“I really love trying all of those things but very rarely do I actually stick with it. I'd rather use coconut oil.”

Heidi also said beauty ”comes down to common sense.”

The international supermodel feels that the “basics” include eating well and drinking lots of water.

She added that these basics are the “most important” when developing a routine.

“A lot of beauty comes down to common sense,” the 47-year-old said.

“I get bombarded with products from all over the world, and I love trying all of those different things, but for me, the basics are most important.

“When I eat well and keep hydrated I can see the difference in my face when I look in the mirror.

“You’ve got to look in the mirror and see if there is something up. That way, you know if you breakout it could be because of the garbage you ate.

“If you look dry and your skin doesn't snap back, you're not hydrated. If you just look at yourself and listen, you know what to do.”
