Shailene Woodley is only one of many stars who use natural ingredients in their beauty routine

Shailene Woodley’s always been very open about her natural beauty remedies (including giving her nether regions some much-needed Vitamin D, ingesting clay on a daily basis or swapping out her toothpaste for sesame oil). But it seems the star’s natural beauty arsenal keeps expanding — she’s now swearing by a pigment-packed vegetable to give her pout a pop of color. But of course, she’s not alone in loving food-based beauty products.

The 23-year-old actress recently told
Bon Appétit
that she uses beets as an all-natural lip color. “It’s totally awesome,” she told the mag about using the vegetable for beauty purposes. “Beets are amazing. If you roast them you’ll get a better lipstick,” she says. “They’re not as potent and they don’t stain the same way if they’re raw. So I roast them first and then just dab a little of the juice on my lips with my finger.”

While Woodley may rely on beauty products plucked straight from the garden, Blake Lively can pick up one of her favorite beauty remedies (which gives her Serena van der Woodsen tresses its signature shine) at a local supermarket — in the condiment aisle. “My mom taught me this really great beauty tip,” she told
Byrdie
. “She used to put oil or mayonnaise on the bottom half of her hair before she would shower. That way, when she would shampoo, the soap wouldn’t strip the bottom of the hair and dry it out, making it brittle.”

And speaking of hair products, Pretty Little Liars star and lifestyle blogger Shay Mitchell keeps her hair healthy with a little help from everyone’s favorite natural ingredient: coconut oil, which she uses as a deep conditioner. “It’s a secret my mom always told me, being from the Philippines,” she told PEOPLE. “They used it all the time, and her hair is still fabulous!”

PEOPLE’s Most Beautiful Woman Lupita Nyong’o, a brand ambassador for Lancôme, is also a fan of incorporating edible ingredients into her everyday skincare routine. And with her (flawless) skin, we just might, too. “My skin tends to be very dry,” she told
Redbook
. “So I use avocado oil to take off my makeup, which helps keep my face moisturized.”

And finally, How To Get Away With Murder star Viola Davis relies on a kitchen staple to keep her limbs (and feet!) extra hydrated. “I put [Crisco] on my feet, as a lubricant on my feet, I just go in there and put it all over my bunion and my toes and the bottom of my feet,” she previously said on an episode of
The Ellen DeGeneres Show
. “First of all, it gets rid of the ash, and certain people in the audience know what ash is — it’s just dry skin. I recommend it!”
