Being an actress is a very demanding profession. Apart from focussing on their fitness, actresses have to take good care of their skin and their hair.
Regular use of cosmetics and hair styling products wreaks havoc on the skin and the hair of actresses. To deal with this, many actresses have devised their own home remedies for both skincare and haircare. So, here are a few beauty secrets given by your favorite actresses themselves!
Kareena says that instead of facials, her go-to skincare remedy is honey. The actress says that honey cleanses and softens her skin. She says that she applies a light layer of honey on her skin, massages it for a few minutes and then washes it off. Along with honey, the actress also uses almond oil. Kareena says that on a lazy day at home, she and her family soak themselves in almond oil! The actress also says that a combination of almond oil and yogurt is great for the face, especially if you have dry skin.
Priyanka makes this face pack by mixing 1-2 tbsp each of yogurt and oatmeal with 1-2 tsp of turmeric. The actress applies this on her face, leaves it for 30 mins and then washes it off with lukewarm water.
The daughter of actor cum politician Shatrughan Sinha, Sonakshi says that she occasionally goes for a coconut oil or olive oil head massage. The actress says that getting a head massage helps to improve the blood circulation in the scalp.
Apart from using multani mitti (Fuller’s earth) packs for her skin, the actress says that fresh aloe vera is the best thing for the skin. Sonakshi says that blemishes and bruises on her skin instantly disappear when she applies fresh aloe vera.
‘Vicky Donor’ actress, Yami Gautam, also has a few skincare and haircare secrets up her sleeve. The actress mixes finely ground rice powder with either milk or yogurt to make her very own face exfoliant.
Yami also treats her skin to a honey, rose water, glycerin and lemon face pack. She says that honey moisturizes her skin, whereas the lemon removes any impurities from her skin. For her hair, Yami indulges in an egg white and olive oil hair mask. According to the actress, this hair mask deeply conditions her hair and gives it an amazing shine.
Sridevi would make the hair oil with amla (Indian gooseberry) and dried flowers. She would ensure that she gave both her daughters-Janhvi and Khushi, an oil massage every three days.
