  • Which luxury food is Amy Winehouse using as a skin cream?

    Amy Winehouse has developed a habit for jars of Royal Caspian Beluga caviar, but she is not eating the luxury treat.

    The Rehab singer has instead started using the delicacy as a face cream, in a desperate attempt to cure her skin following a nasty bout of bacterial infection impetigo.

    The star stepped out last month displaying a swollen face, covered with sores, which her rep quickly confirmed was the skin disease, ‘Amy has been diagnosed with impetigo, which she has been told can be highly contagious,’ a statement read. ‘Because of that she has been put on antibiotics and may have to stay home alone for the next few days.’

    Now the Daily Star is reporting that Winehouse has started using the £395 jars of caviar after a make-up artist recommended it for its curative properties.

    The source revealed, ‘A make-up artist in Norway told her it was a miracle cream, so she tried it. Now her face is back to its former glory.’
