Orange is the New Black star Laverne Cox has baby smooth skin … Literally.
The actress, who graces the cover of Essence’s October issue alongside Danai Gurira, Alfre Woodard and Nicole Beharie, revealed to HipHollywood that she washes her face with wait for it … BABY SHAMPOO. “I’ve been washing my face with baby shampoo for 15 years,” she told us during the publication’s “A Toast To Primetime” celebration.
“Kevin Aviance who I worked with about 15 years ago suggested it to me. I thought ‘oh that sounds like a good idea, if it’s safe enough for babies.’ It’s pretty good,” she explained.
While on the red carpet, Cox, who made history this year as the first openly transgender person to be nominated for an Emmy, also opened up her documentary Laverne Cox Presents: The T Word set to premiere on October 17 on MTV. “It’s about a group of seven young trans people from the ages of 12 to 24 and it’s about their journey as trans people, but also as young people trying to find and have other things that young people experience and do but they have the added version of being trans.”
