But we'll be the first to admit when we're wrong.

Because, with a little help from her beauty therapist Deborah Mitchell, we've found the secret to Kate's amazing skin. And it's already in your fridge.

Mitchell, aka the royal family's go-to beautician and founder of Heavenskincare, revealed the DIY secrets to the Duchess' skincare routine on This Morning, and they're kind of insane.

Resembling something more akin to a Planet Organic shopping list than your next Space NK beauty splurge, Mitchell's home-made recipes are closer to an A-list facial than you'd think.

After all, she did prep Kate's skin for that small affair called the royal wedding.

Deborah Mitchell's Recipe For Kate Middleton-Worthy Skin

For her red-carpet worthy complexion:

  1. One jar of chocolate spread
  2. Sugar
  3. Lip balm

Mix together to form a scrub and smooth over skin.

Is It Legit?

For those who might baulk at the sugar content of that ingredients list, even though it sounds ridiculous, depending on the cocoa content of your chocolate spread, this is actually a great way to deliver antioxidants directly to the skin.

In the mean time, sugar provides a natural exfoliant that's present in loads of your favourite face scrubs, and the lip balm moisturises so skin isn't left feeling raw and red.

For royally soft feet:

  1. One banana
  2. One avocado
  3. One cotton sock

Mix the banana and avocado together and place in the sock before wearing.

Is It Legit?

Dry skin on your feet works the same way as on your face, so a mask never goes a miss, and placing it inside a sock will mean an avocado-free carpet for everyone.

Credentials wise, avocado contains Vitamin E, D and A which help soften and smooth skin, whilst bananas are full of hydrating potassium. So, in theory this should work.

Mitchell also suggests using green tea as a toner, bathing in oat milk and pressing coffee underneath your eyes, but to be honest, we'd rather eat them for breakfast.
