Cheryl Cole gets her skincare products flown in from outside of the UK.

The 30-year-old star enjoys exfoliating her skin to make sure she maintains a flawless complexion so when cosmetics brand L'Oreal Paris stopped producing Pure Zone Exfoliating Gel Wash, the brunette beauty made sure she had a supply at hand.

She said: ''I like an exfoliator to get all that gunk off. In fact L'Oreal discontinued my favourite face wash - they got me 23 bottles from another country but I want them to bring it back!''

The star hasn't always been happy with her skin as she went through a phase as a teenager where she had an outbreak of spots and this made her more adept to skincare.

Cheryl explained: ''As a teenage I went through a hormonal spell of spots and I hated it. It made me conscious of taking care of my skin.''

The 'Call My Name' hitmaker thinks younger women should take care of their skin to keep a youthful look, rather than think they need to resort to treatments like Botox.

She added: ''I think it's important to let women in their twenties know that actually there are alternatives to injectables and stuff like that. It's about prevention at this stage, rather than putting poison in your face.''
