"As a teen I was plugged with acne. What cosmetics couldn't do, my diet did"
Beauty, skin care and diet. Three things every woman wants to know more about.
We all wonder how Bollywood stars still manage to look flawless on their days off.
How they maintain a healthy diet, what they use on their skin, and what beauty means to them.
DESIblitz has rounded up four stunning Bollywood actresses who always manage to look incredible, with makeup or without.
Here are their beauty secrets!
Jacqueline Fernandez is a Bollywood actress who remains open in revealing her beauty/skin care tips. She has given many interviews in which she shares her makeup and skin care regime with fans.
In an interview with Vogue India, the Sri Lankan beauty states she uses ice wrapped up in a muslin tissue and places them on her cheeks and eyes to reduce puffiness and maintain a healthy glow.
In another interview with Cosmopolitan India, Jacqueline emphasises the importance of eating healthy and being aware of the types of food you eat. She said:
“Believe me, as a teen I was plugged with acne, what cosmetics couldn’t do, my diet did. Slowly I became more conscious about my nutrition and stopped eating junk. More of fish, veggies, fruits, nuts and a diet low on carbs and sugar soon made my skin glow.”
When asked about her hair, the Bollywood star said she can always vouch for Kerastase as a brand. And while it may be high end and a pricey option, it gives good results, making it worth it.
She also uses beer to wash her hair. To add shine, she uses an egg white mask which she makes at home. Jacqueline also takes zinc as hair supplements and eats food that is rich in omega-3.
Madhuri Dixit is another actress who has stolen hearts with her beautiful aura, gorgeous skin and healthy locks. The timeless diva always looks stunning and we are dying to know her beauty secret.
What is beauty to Madhuri Dixit?
She tells StyleCraze:
“Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and what is beautiful to one, need not be beautiful to the other. But one must always work to feel and look good.”
In regards to hair, the beautiful actress said she steers towards using oils to help nourish and soften her hair. She told Filmfare: “Mix olive oil and castor oil in equal proportions and apply to your hair and scalp.”
Madhuri’s beauty regime doesn’t contain a lot of products. To achieve a natural glow, she simply stays happy. As simplistic as it sounds, she claims it has worked for her. She also states dancing is very spiritual for her and keeps her happy and beaming from the inside. Dancing is also a great source of cardio.
One of the grooming secrets the mega star swears by is to moisturise and wear SPF and always oil your hair before washing!
Fashionista Sonam is a Bollywood actress who is known for her inspiring fashion looks and for being the brand ambassador of L’Oreal.
Sonam told StyleCraze: “Think right, eat right, be happy, content and feel beautiful from within as that is what reflects on your face.”
“Think right, eat right, be happy, content and feel beautiful from within as that is what reflects on your face.”
She brushes her hair using a Conair hairbrush and uses Kerastase products. Sonam sips coconut water every 2-3 hours which keeps her skin in good condition.
Many of you may know that Kapoor lost weight prior to joining Bollywood Cinema. She followed a strict diet routine. Her diet plan included:
- Breakfast ~ Oatmeals and fruits
- Lunch ~ Dhal, sabzi, salad, and a piece of chicken or fish
- Snacks ~ High fibre foods like crackers with chicken or egg whites
- Dinner ~ Soup, salad and a piece of chicken
Neutrogena is her favourite sunscreen brand and she never steps out of her house without applying it.
Similar to Madhuri, Sonam also relies on oils for nourishing hair and uses them twice a month. She mixes coconut oil with almond oil. She avoids oily products and products full of heavy chemicals.
Katrina Kaif is the hot and mesmerising leading lady of Bollywood. She has been in the industry for quite some time now and has drawn in audiences with her captivating look.
Katrina is one of those actresses that likes to keep her makeup and hair simple. We never see her experimenting with her looks apart from her red hair in her movie Fitoor. Having said that, she never manages to fail in looking elegant and sexy at the same time.
Katrina drinks four glasses of water when she wakes up. This is her skin care routine – pretty simple, right? Drinking water definitely makes a difference. Sometimes it’s not about what you apply on your skin but what you eat and what goes into your body.
Before going to bed, Katrina recommends taking makeup off with a good cleanser to remove all grime and any residue.
Occasionally, she has pamper treatments which include facials and massages. These treatments stimulate blood circulation and leave a glow to your skin. Mineral mud masks from time to time are Katrina’s emergency uses. They reduce impurities quickly, especially if you see a breakout.
The stunning actress likes to keep her makeup simple and her essential products are simply a sunscreen and lip balm. Her secret makeup tip is applying ice wrapped in a muslin cloth all over her face before applying makeup!
These tips from our favourite Bollywood beauties are definitely useful and we could always apply them in our daily routine.
