Sofia Richie has copied her father Lionel Richie's beauty routine.

The 18-year-old model - who is the daughter of Lionel Richie and his former wife Diana - has admitted she ''soaks'' her whole body in coconut oil, and will sleep in the natural product, which is what her parent and 'Hello' hitmaker used to do.

Speaking about her beauty hacks to E! Online, the blonde beauty said: ''I sleep in coconut oil. I just soak in my hair, on my face, on my skin, all over - it's kind of my thing. Growing up, my dad [Lionel Richie] used to do it. He still does. So as a kid I would just cover myself in coconut oil, because I used to go like this to my dad [she rubbed her arm] all the time, and I would tell him how soft he was. I wanted to be soft ... that's a weird way to describe myself.''

And Sofia - who has recently split up from 'Sorry' vocalist Justin Bieber - has admitted she has a ''tough personality'', and although she considers herself a ''tomboy'' she also likes to adorn ''girly'' garments as well.

Speaking about her style, she said: ''I have a tough personality but then have a very soft side to me.

''I'm kind of a tomboy but I throw it together with girly pieces. For instance, I'm wearing these sweatpants but they have all these holes up the side so I'm showing some leg. I feel like I'm wearing sweatpants so it's sporty but also sexy.''

And Sofia has revealed she doesn't like to follow trends because she prefers to wear what she wants.

She said: ''I don't really keep up with trends; I just wear what I want. I don't really let anyone's opinion get to me. I stay in my own head.''
