This Is Why Mariah Carey Doesn’t Eat Salad Before A Photoshoot
Mariah Carey is probably one of the most famous, award-winning legends in the music industry, yet nobody knows her real age.
Of course, the glamorous singer can’t live off a regular person’s beauty routine. The Billboard 100 chart-topper doesn’t eat salads before a photoshoot either, but you’ll have to read on to find out why.
Here’s a list of Mariah Carey’s beauty secrets, so maybe someday we’ll get a bit closer to the Skinny Legend’s beauty routine.
1. She’s entirely oblivious to age
I don't get this 10 year challenge, time is not something I acknowledge. 🤷♀️ *Picture taken at some point prior to today pic.twitter.com/f5XUye3Hot

According to her Wikipedia page, Mariah is either 49 or 50. Heck, even Wikipedia isn’t sure, so Mariah has been pretty good at keeping her age a secret from everyone around her. The iconic singer told Vogue:
“I think I have to remain eternally oblivious to age. Honestly, when you put a number on it yourself, it’s just like, Why? Why do that?”
2. Mariah Carey went to beauty school
… and promptly dropped out because the beauty academy made her wear such hideous shoes. She did learn how to do scalp treatments on herself though, and perhaps that’s why she has such great, healthy hair.
3. She bathes in milk
Milk is part of Mariah Carey’s bathing rituals, and we don’t see why not. Milk baths actually exfoliate your skin, leaving it feeling soft and supple.
“I bathe in milk. Sometimes I use milk as a beauty treatment. Cold milk.”
As a result, her skin looks amazing! We trust you, Mariah.
4. The “Always Be My Baby” singer doesn’t eat salad before photoshoots
The singer advises her fanbase to never eat water, a.k.a. salad.
“Don’t eat salad if you’re about to do, like, a photoshoot, because it bloats you.”
Certain vegetables do bloat you, especially if they’re uncooked like most salads are. Maybe Mariah Carey has a point. Anyway, she only eats Norwegian salmon and capers, so maybe we’ll try to stick to her diet.
5. She doesn’t wear a lot of makeup
Like most of us, Mariah Carey isn’t fond of removing her makeup, so she just does what’s the easiest – she doesn’t wear a lot of it.
“My goal is to wear the least amount of makeup possible so I don’t have to steam my face and take it all off.”
Thanks for the tip, Mariah! We’re definitely going for the natural look after this.
