Minaj has amazing skin, and she seeks professional advice to help herself take care of it. The rapper told Hello! Magazine that she seeks advice from a dermatologist to keep her skin healthy. "I have a dermatologist in LA who gave me some great advice," she says. "Never use anything to wash my skin that contains alcohol or oil, and those rules really work for me. Before I would buy something from a store and I would either dry out or break out."

When it comes to getting healthy, Minaj focuses more on her diet. She says to Hello! Magazine that she likes to cut things out. "If I'm not on tour, and I have to do something on camera, I will follow a quick diet and drink lots of water, cut out all carbs, all sugar, all dairy and all fried food. So, I would rather diet than exercise…Normally I'm a real chocolate person and I love snacks rather than food, so when I have to lose a little bit of weight, I just cut back on my snacks and drink water instead of soda and juice."


She Takes Makeup Off


Minaj wears a lot of makeup, and she always makes sure to take it off. She revealed her go-to removers to Grazia. "I always take my MAC wipes to take my make-up off during a flight. Especially if it's a long one. And a face wash without alcohol in it, so I can wash my face and feel completely clean without having oil on my face."


She Goes Natural

Minaj tells Grazia that she likes to wear little or no makeup on her days off to let her skin breathe. "I think it's really important for you to let your pores breathe. I wear lots of make-up so I love having a down look and then transforming into the show look. When I'm at home I don't wear any make-up on my skin at all. I'll wear lip gloss or lipstick. I'll still do my eyebrows and my eyes but that's about it. If I'm going to the studio, I don't do anything. I don't even do my eyes. I'll just put on some lip gloss on and some shades because nobody is going to see me anyway."


She Raises Awareness

Minaj is all about supporting different causes. One thing she supports is HIV and AIDS research. She opened up about this to Hello! "It is important for our young generation to understand that HIV/AIDS will continue to be a global issue unless we work together to fight the disease. Awareness leads to education, education leads to empowerment and empowerment leads to change."
