Tina Turner’s beauty secrets

Hello lovelies!

On May 24th, I heard one of the worst pieces of news ever when Tina Turner died. Indeed, a part of my childhood died with her. I grew up with her songs, her dance routines, and her energetic presence on stage. And I’ve always thought that she was one of the most beautiful black women in the entertainment industry. In particular, I’ve always admired her killer legs!

Consequently, I decided to write an article about Tina Turner’s beauty secrets to honor her legacy. Though she was a role model for her resilience and strength during her ordeals, she retained her beauty until her 80s! That’s why she has always been an example to emulate for me.

If you also want to know everything about Tina Turner’s beauty secrets, read this article until the end!

Beauty is found first and foremost within you

“My greatest beauty secret is being happy with myself. I don’t use special creams or treatments – I’ll use a little bit of everything. It’s a mistake to think you are what you put on yourself. I believe that a lot of how you look is to do with how you feel about yourself and your life. Happiness is the greatest beauty secret.”

Tina Turner

According to Tina Turner, her best beauty secret was happiness. Despite all the problems she had, the more she handled everything with grace, the better. Also, she had a regular spiritual practice – she was a devout Buddhist, and meditated everyday.

Her spiritual practice gave her strength during difficult times, especially when she had marital problems with her first husband. For the record, her first husband was violent because of substance abuse and used to beat her. Fortunately, she managed to escape this toxic and abusive relationship, and saved her own life in the process.

One of her favorite mantras was “Change poison into medicine”. Thus, she could turn negative situations or blockages into positive outcomes. If you want to emulate her, try to recite positive affirmations every morning during your morning routine. This will rewire your brain and change your mindset forever. I’ve tried this and I can guarantee that it works!

Age ain’t nothing but a number

“Age is no issue to me. I think 50 is the new 30 and 70 is the new 50. There are no rules that say you have to dress a certain way or be a certain way.”

Tina Turner

Moreover, Tina Turner’s eternal youthfulness was linked to the fact that age was only a number for her. She didn’t think of herself as old, even in her eighties! For her, 50 was the new 30 and so on. I really like her mindset and I try to adopt this as well.

Thanks to this mindset, she could start her solo career at 44 in the 1980s. As a remainder, in that era, a woman in her 40s was already old and impossible to market to the public anymore. Take note, ladies!

Tina Turner’s skincare

Thanks to her African American and Native American heritage, Tina Turner was blessed with great skin that didn’t age. However, she still took great care of her skin. She didn’t believe in plastic surgery and relied on natural solutions to keep her skin soft and supple.

She had a regular self-care routine to feel good in her skin. Her faithfulness to a specific cosmetic brand is not documented. However, she religiously cleansed, toned, and moisturized her skin twice a day.

Moreover, Tina Turner believed a lot in the benefits of beauty sleep. She always slept 10 to 12 hours per night. As a result, she woke up with a fresh face everyday! She was late to bed and late to rise. Someone needs to call Benjamin Franklin…

Tina Turner’s diet

Tina Turner had a sensible diet and didn’t restrain herself. She enjoyed every type of food: Thai, vegetarian, and even Swiss delicacies. Like many women of her generation, she ate everything in moderation. As Tina Turner rose late, she only had two meals a day. She didn’t eat after 6 pm and drank lots of water.

Also, she hated calorie counting – I have something in common with her because I hate it too! However, when she was touring, she cut back on chocolate and animal fats like cheese and cream.

If you’ve seen Tina Turner’s performances on stage (especially when she sang Proud Mary), you can’t deny that her stage presence was electrifying. She enjoyed dancing all the time and also practiced yoga and Pilates to remain flexible.

Also, as she lived in Switzerland, she spent time outdoors in the mountains. Indeed, she appreciated communing with nature because she found it relaxing and spiritual.

When she was touring, Tina Turner did her own makeup. Though we don’t exactly know her makeup techniques, we can say that she was as skilled as the best makeup artist in the industry. However, I noticed that red lipstick remained a staple in her overall appearance, even if her makeup was more discreet in her later years than in the 1980s.

Up to the 1960s, Tina Turner had a head full of coarse hair that she styled in the fashionable styles of that era. However, one day, her first husband wanted her to dye her hair blond like Marilyn Monroe. Unfortunately, the hairdresser left the dye too long on her hair. The result? Unfortunately, her hair was shedding and remained brittle.

Therefore, she relied on wigs to upgrade her look. Thanks to her wigs, she was the quintessential diva with a lioness mane. Thus, she could embody what she wanted to project – being the queen of rock and roll. She especially enjoyed blond wigs and styled her wigs herself.

However, contrary to the 1980s and the 1990s, her wigs were more classic in her later years. The Queen of Rock and Roll looked like the perfect lady!

Like many celebrities, Tina Turner enjoyed several perfumes. However, her signature fragrance was Eau du Sud by Annick Goutal. This perfume is unisex, with citrus top notes and a very natural smell. Though this fragrance can appear a little masculine for women, I believe that it perfectly embodied Tina Turner’s personality. Why?

Because Tina Turner was the perfect blend of a feminine appearance and masculine power and aura in her artistry. So, I completely understand that she would fall in love with that perfume!

    Tina Turner…. what a childhood I had with her as well.  I love her, her music,  her dancing, she is legendary.  She had such a great impact on my life, and who I am today.  

    The quote is brilliantly beautiful.  I have to admit though, I know all her moves and all her songs, but this I did not know.  I love the post with all this magical information for me today.  Thank you.  You most definitely have the best page of the day.  

    “Change poison into medicine”. I agree with you and Tina.  Positive affirmations and mantras every day is a great way to make permanent changes to yourself and your life.  She is so wise.

    I did not know she practiced yoga and Pilates, and meditation too.  She was indeed more spiritual and connected than I thought.  

    From what you portray in your post today, she is a truly remarkable woman, and my next read is her autobiography, thank you so much for this great recommendation for great reading material.  

    Thank you Elodie, for this great informative valuable post.  I greatly enjoyed it, and received great value here today.

    Tina Turner truly was a force! I enjoyed reading the highlights you shared about her health and beauty routine. It sounds like such a great balance of enjoying everything in moderation while living life to the fullest. Fascinating to learn she slept 10-12 hours a night. I think ‘hustle culture’ has made it seem like the most successful people need very little sleep. And while this may indeed be the case for some people, I think it’s made sleep almost seem like an afterthought on the list of daily essentials for so many.

      Dear Laura, I agree with your opinion on the hustling culture… and thanks for sharing !

If you are eating the proper foods, staying hydrated and finding your passions you will remain younger for a longer period of time. Taking care of your skin is important but many people think it is the magic to youth. The magic to youth is being healthy and fit. When you are then it shows in your face. Great article. Brian

    This is a fitting tribute to Tina Turner and her beauty secrets Elodie, I am sure this will be helpful for fans who would like to incorporate some of her looks into their own as well as those who just wish to know a little more about the musician they were such a fan of.

    The quote attributed to Ms. Turner about her biggest beauty secret being happy with herself certainly rings true to me because every time I ever saw her in an interview or performing she was always smiling the biggest one can imagine. That kind of happiness is hard to fake and also very difficult to hide.

    You mention that she hated calorie counting but do you know if there was any kind of food that she actually didn’t like or tried to stay away from?

      Hello Joseph, thanks for your comment! Tina Turner enjoyed everything but stayed away from chocolate and dairy when touring. Hope that this helps!

    “I was so saddened to hear about Tina Turner’s passing. She was such an icon, and her music was a big part of my childhood too. It’s inspiring to see how she managed to maintain her beauty and youthfulness even in her 80s. I’m curious to know more about her skincare routine and how she managed to keep her skin looking so great without relying on plastic surgery. Do you think it’s possible for anyone to achieve the same results with natural solutions?

    1. admin says:

      Yes it’s possible! Just look at Tina!

  10. Lizzy Stabel says:

    First of all: may the queen of pop rest in peace, she was such a beautiful soul, inside and out, with a turbulent life and she will be missed!
    She was indeed a beauty until an older age and I’m sure that she took well care of herself with her skin routine and the rest. But do you think that I can achieve the same without being wealthy? I mean, having the funds to stay beautiful does help haha 🙂

      Yes you  can!!!
