Yes, she was naturally beautiful, however, she strictly kept a daily skin-nourishing routine. She revealed to the “French Vogue” that the most important thing was hydration, hydration, hydration.
Besides the good genes she was obviously blessed with, she had a few beauty secrets she revealed to “Vogue” magazine, which then they revealed to the rest of the world.
Giving It Another Try
During those years, Audrey didn't neglect her profession completely and in 1976, she attempted a comeback by playing alongside Sean Connery in "Robin and Marian". The movie wasn't as great as her former ones, however, the chemistry between Hepburn and Connery was remarkable.
It was said that the two really seemed to be in love, and if it wasn't for them, the film would have been probably a complete disaster. The movie was poor, the plot was boring, but the cast was magnificent. She wished for that kind of connection and enthusiasm in reality — for someone to sweep her off her feet and live happily ever after with.
A Partner for the Rest of Her Life
In 1980, Audrey met Robert Wolders who was her partner until her last days. After two marriages that went pear-shaped, Audrey finally found her destiny.
Hepburn and Wolders never married but they had a beautiful relationship, based on honesty and trust. The 25 years that stood between the two never formed a barrier or boundary, and against all odds, Audrey could finally settle down with the man she loved.
Audrey's Beauty Tips
In the 20th century, women had more time than they do today. Audrey would use tweezers to separate each and every eyelash before applying mascara. She was dedicated to herself as much as she was to the industry.
Audrey had all different kinds of beauty tips that added to her natural allure. She pampered her skin with oils and lotions, groomed her eyebrows on a daily basis, and always — and we mean always — removed her makeup before going to bed. And like everything else she touched, it was all done in the most professional way.
She Had Her Own Ways
Audrey insisted on detoxing her body one day a month. By cleansing our body internally, we provide space for new emotions and feelings. She said that detoxing the body enables us to let go of the past and embrace the future.
Her son, Luca Dotti, detailed in his book "Audrey at Home: Memories of My Mother's Kitchen", that she would eat only fruit, vegetables, and yogurt for the entire day. In general, the diet she kept was simple, and pasta with plain tomato sauce was her favorite dish.
