If you’re Victoria Beckham, too much salmon is never enough, and not even the threat of mercury poisoning will change that. Why? Because when you’re a celebrity on the pursuit of perfect skin, anything goes. And for Beckham, that means a healthy daily dose of Omega 3’s in the form of fresh salmon — no excuses.
“I see a dermatologist in LA, called Dr Harold Lancer, who is incredible,” Beckham tells The EDIT of the secret behind her porcelain visage. “I’ve known him for years – he sorted my skin out. I used to have really problematic skin and he said to me, ‘You have to eat salmon every single day.’ I said, ‘Really, every day?’ And he said, ‘Yes; breakfast, lunch or dinner, you have to eat it every single day.'”
So why is she sharing what seems to be one of the best kept skin secrets in Hollywood? Because she wants women to have as much knowledge as she does about beauty.
“There are two types of women out there: there’s the kind of woman who finds something nice and likes to keep it to herself, and then there’s the other type, which is me, who wants to share. I have worked with the best makeup artists, hairdressers and stylists, and I’ve learned so much,” she shares. “I haven’t always got it right, but when I’ve got it wrong, I’ve actually learned an enormous amount from that, too. And I want to share everything I know.”
But beauty isn’t the only area in which she’s gone wrong. Beckham shares that as far as her fashion “mistakes” are concerned, they’re funny, and she isn’t ashamed of them. Case in point: Her former devotion to 8-inch heels, or some of those infamously sexy outfits during her Posh Spice days.
“At some point I thought it was OK to wear a PVC cat suit,” she says, adding, “When I was pregnant with Romeo, I walked around Disneyland in Christian Louboutin heels, literally at nine months pregnant!”
