"Don't wash too much."

Vivienne Westwood has never been one to stick to everyday norms, and her beauty routine is no exception.

After her husband, Andreas Kronthaler, presented his collection at Paris Fashion Week on Saturday, the designer was approached about her secret to staying young. Her response to reporters? "Don't wash too much," reports The Guardian.

"She only takes a bath every week. That's why she looks so radiant," added Kronthaler. "I only wash once a month." (It's unclear if Kronthaler was joking or not.)

This isn't the first time Westwood, a self-described "eco-warrior," has addressed her bathing habits. In 2014, the outspoken designer starred in a PETA video about the meat industry's depletion of the world's water supplies and said, "I'm not used to the habit of a shower. I just wash my bits and rush out in the morning. I more often than not get in the bath after Andreas."

Leave it to Westwood to live life on her own terms.
