Marilyn Monroe was reluctant to share her beauty secrets, but luckily for us she was always surrounded by people more than willing to share.
Marilyn smoothed vaseline on her face to keep her skin soft. One source says that Marilyn would apply vaseline, then follow with loose powder, another layer of vaseline, then more powder. She did this until her skin looked flawless.
Marilyn, contrary to her glamorous image, did not like wearing makeup (or jewelry). When she wasn't wearing makeup, she smoothed olive oil on her face.
Used Nivea Skin Moisturizing Lotion.
A fan of Pond's Cold Cream.
To smooth cellulite, Marilyn purportedly took ice baths. She also enjoyed pouring Chanel No. 5 into her bath water.
Marilyn was 5'5" and weighed 115 pounds at her lightest. She had a 22 inch waist. Her weight fluctuated between 115-140 lbs.
