The actress also uses yoghurt and eggs on her hair
Sonakshi Sinha is one Bollywood actress who always looks amazing. She is often seen with flawless skin and usually opts for a more natural look, rather than wearing heavy make-up.
Sonakshi knows that less is more and her skincare and beauty routines are not too complicated. She doesn’t use a lot of expensive products and her steps are easy to follow.
The talented actress’ daily morning routine is a good example of how she keeps things simple. It consists of a cleansing, toning and moisturising regime that she swears by.
It’s not just the products she uses that contribute to her gorgeous skin. Drinking water is something Sonakshi also does every morning and throughout the day in order to look good and keep energised.
Here are all the beauty secrets that Sonakshi Sinha has that you can try for yourself.
Drinking a glass of cold water first thing in the morning is the best way to start your day. It helps your body to wake up and is a great energy booster.
You should aim to drink around three litres of water throughout the day. The fact that it aids your skin in looking good without even trying is a great added bonus.
For her morning routine, Sonakshi uses a Neutrogena Deep Clean cleanser and a Nivea moisturiser.
She follows the cleansing, toning and moisturising (CTM) routine every morning and night and every step is vital.
Cleansing will remove any dirt and oil from your skin, toning opens your pores and prevents breakouts and moisturising leaves the skin hydrated.
After her CTM routine, the actress puts on her sunscreen. She says she never leaves the house without it and as it protects your skin against sun damage, you shouldn’t either.
Using one with a high SPF will also keep signs of ageing at bay which explains Sonakshi’s youthful skin.
Sonakshi usually only wears minimal make-up but the one item she always uses is concealer. Using concealer to cover dark circles and any blemishes ensures your skin looks even.
Compact powder is essential to set your concealer in place and using it ensures you won’t have to fiddle with touch-ups during the day.
Also, contouring is a very popular make-up technique but it isn’t necessary to use it all over your face. Sonakshi tends to use bronzer on her jawline which sharpens it and also on her cheekbones.
Her makeup artist Vardan Nayak has a great tip:
“To make your cheekbones really pop, swipe a line of contour powder directly on the bottom edge of your cheekbone.”
Vardan continues to explain:
“Your brush should be straddling your cheekbone as you apply it.
“A natural-looking contour requires heavy blending, which means you need to swirl the bronzer powder beneath your chin and extend it down your neck.”
For her foundation, Sonakshi Sinha is a fan of Chanel’s Mat Lumiere foundation in the Naturel shade.
With such subtle changes in her diet and routine, as well as guidance from Vardan, there’s no wonder why Sonakshi is always glowing.
Eyes and Lips
Sonakshi’s eyes are one of her best features and she uses a kohl pencil to draw attention to them. This is a quick and simple way to accentuate your eyes without using any eyeshadow.
She is often seen with a thick cat-eye with upturned edges. This can be tricky to do but it’s worth the practice to get it right. Make sure you are looking straight into your mirror and keep your eyes open.
Draw the wing on both sides first and then shut one eye to connect the wing to your lash eye. You can then thicken the line along the eyelid. Then do the same with your other eye and you are good to go.
Sometimes Sonakshi does experiment with brighter eye colours and eyeliners and you can do the same once you have mastered the cat-eye.
Eyeliners are available in as many colour options to suit different skin types so there are lots to choose from.
In addition, Sonakshi’s eyebrows always look on point.
She simply uses an eyebrow pencil by Revlon to add definition. When Sonakshi wants to turn up the glamour she will add false eyelashes to her look.
They are great for adding definition and you won’t have to worry about clumps that mascara can cause. You also have lots of different styles to choose from including thick, wispy and fluttery.
Sonakshi Sinha’s favourite mascaras are by MAC and Max Factor.
When Sonakshi wears lipstick, she goes for those with a matte finish. It adds colour but doesn’t need touch-ups, something the actress hates.
They are also less likely to bleed or smudge during the day. If you want to go for a bold lip colour it is important to keep your eye make-up simple and vice versa.
Heavy eye make-up and bold lipstick colours are not a good combination and Sonakshi knows this well.
You will not see the actress with both at once.
One of her favourite lipsticks is the MyGlamm POSE HD Matte Lipstick in Deep Rose Red. Sonakshi makes sure to regularly buff her lips with a brush.
This removes any dead skin and makes lipstick application a lot smoother.
Sonakshi Sinha avoids products that have too many chemicals and uses a lot of remedies she makes at home. She loves homemade face packs to cleanse her face regularly.
Her go-to’s are those with aloe vera gel and those made of Multani mitti.
Multani mitti cleanses impurities from the pores and absorbs excess oil from your skin. These face packs are why Sonakshi is never seen with unsightly blemishes.
Exfoliating is necessary but as Sonakshi does, it should only be done a couple of times a week. This will get rid of dead skin cells as well as blackheads and whiteheads.
An interesting tip is that Sonakshi rubs ice cubes on her skin which is a great way to minimise pores.
She rubs one over her face for a minute before applying her make-up for an extra glow.
Sonakshi recently revealed that as suggested by her mother she has used ghee on her face. She said it made her skin feel really supple and fresh.
She suggests taking a small amount and applying it on your face, just like you do with your moisturiser.
Sonakshi makes sure she removes all her make-up before she goes to bed and this tip is one of the most important.
After cleansing her face, she uses a moisturiser and an eye cream to help heal and repair her skin during the night.
Just like her skincare products, Sonakshi Sinha chooses haircare products that do not contain a lot of chemicals. She always uses natural shampoos and conditioners to wash her hair.
The actress also uses oil to massage her hair regularly, using natural options like olive or coconut oil. By doing this once a week she combats the damage her hair faces from hair styling tools such as dryers and straighteners.
She also shared another hair care tip through Vogue:
“I have been trying to use onion juice on my scalp. It does smell pretty terrible, but I’ve heard that it helps to boost thickness and body.”
The actress also uses yoghurt and eggs on her hair as a mask. For perfumes, Sonakshi has a favourite fragrance for day and night.
During the day she wears Victoria Secret’s Pink Body Spray and she loves Jean Paul Gaultier’s Classique for the evening. Both impeccable fragrances for every occasion.
Diet and Fitness
What you eat can also make a huge difference in how good your skin looks. Fatty foods and high salt content can cause breakouts so it’s important to only indulge occasionally.
Sonakshi Sinha eats small meals every two hours in order to keep her metabolism going.
She eats a lot of fruits and vegetables as well as healthy fats but allows herself a treat now and again:
“I have a sweet tooth, which I try very hard to control.
“I’ll indulge once in a while, but I’ll make up for it by doing an extra 30 minutes in the gym the next day.”
She avoids eating carbohydrates late at night and snacks on walnuts, almonds and bananas which are high in protein and potassium.
The beautiful actress loves drinking green tea as well, sometimes adding a mixture of honey and cinnamon which aids weight loss.
Moreover, Sonakshi is also an avid gym-goer and exercise, just like a diet, can make a huge difference to your skin.
The active starlet does cardio exercises three times a week, as well as weight training and kickboxing. She also goes swimming, does yoga and plays tennis.
Variety is important in your fitness routine as it will stop you from getting bored and makes your workouts more fun.
These are the best beauty secrets that Sonakshi Sinha has and now you can use them too.
Whether you like the less-is-more look when it comes to makeup, or you like a bolder ensemble, always look after your skin.
Cleansing, toning and moisturising will ensure your skin is ready for any makeup application and sunscreen will also aid in keeping the wrinkles away.
Drink lots of water, eat healthily and make sure exercise is a regular part of your day. With all these tips, you can have skin just as flawless as Sonakshi’s.
