If sharing is caring, then Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi has just taken her love of cats to a whole new level.
While promoting her new book, Confessions of a Guidette, on Access Hollywood Wednesday, the Jersey Shore star revealed she applies kitty litter to her face to achieve her signature glow.
“If you want a good facial and stuff like that, it actually really works,” she said.
But before fellow cat owners reach for their kitty litter trays, Polizzi made sure to mention, “It has to be clean kitty litter. It can’t be like poo.”
Though she acknowledged that the unorthodox beauty regimen, which she further describes in her book, is not for everyone, Polizzi promised, “It’s gross, but it makes you look fabulous.”
