Duchess Meghan's $4 supermarket beauty secret in your kitchen cupboard

The Duchess of Sussex has the ability to obtain anything with a snap of her fingertips, including a range of expensive beauty products, but the royal is known to use a much more affordable alternative when it comes to her skincare routine.

Straying away from pricey potions and creams, Meghan chooses to opt for homemade face masks consisting of breakfast oats which are priced at a cheap $3.50.

The concoction is made up of coconut oil, honey and porridge, which helps exfoliate and smooth out the skin. She also reportedly uses turmeric paste to brighten her complexion according to The Sun.

Nichola Joss, skincare guru to the stars and the Duchess commends the 37-year-old for whipping up her own skin remedies at home.

“At-home face masks are amazing, and I fully endorse them. They’re easy, free, and you have full control of the ingredients you’re putting on your skin – which is why most of my clients love them,” Joss told The Sun.

She revealed to the British newspaper that the mask was created using coconut oil “to create a soothing paste-like consistency” and was combined with turmeric to help brighten and even out the skin tone.

For a hydrating and exfoliating mask, combining rolled oats and honey makes for an affordable face mask.
