Cate Blanchett reveals unusual post-flight beauty treatment



Actress Cate Blanchett has revealed that she like to be 'pummelled by big Korean women' after a long flight.

The 43-year-old Australian star revealed her unusual post-travel beauty treatment to Easy Living magazine and said: 'After a long flight I like to be pummelled by those big Korean women at traditional bath houses.

'I also see an acupuncturist for balanced blood flow. Acupuncture is like jumping into the surf - it reverses everything negative.'

According to Film-News, Cate enjoys active holidays and says her personal choice of getaway would be exploring the freezing lands of the Antarctic rather than relaxing by a swimming pool.

She said: 'Our next holiday is to Budapest to visit friends. We're staying at the Four Seasons Gresham Palace hotel. I'm not really a resort person; I'd rather have an adventure, like our holidays to Iceland and the Galapagos Islands.

'I would love to go on an ice-breaking ship in the Antarctic.'

'My favourite travel companion is my husband. I'm always "busy busy busy" and trying to organise things, and he's good at putting his hands on my shoulders and saying, "let's just stay in our pyjamas today".'
