Kylie Minogue obsessed with skin

Wellington: Kylie Minogue is near fanatical about her skin and protecting it with sunscreen at all times – even if she’s just sitting by a window on a plane.

She is careful to never leave the house unless she has protected her face, explaining she is borderline obsessed with it.

"Sun-block – I’m semi-fanatical about it!" Stuff.co.nz quoted her as saying.

"Even if I’ve just got an hour’s drive from A to B, or I’m getting on a day flight and I’m sat by the window. If it’s less than factor 20, it doesn’t go on my face. You can get good sunscreen in moisturisers now, and in mineral make-up – I often put a dusting of that over the top," added Minogue.

The 42-year-old star often fakes her tan instead of baking in the sun; her favourite bronzing agents are St Tropez mousse and Vani-T, which is an Australian brand.

However, she insisted she wasn’t always so obsessed with skin care.

"When I was little, I wasn’t sun-conscious at all," she told Company magazine.

"At school, you had to have the brownest legs and the brownest body, and we would just bake ourselves."
