5 Skincare Secrets We Learnt From Aishwarya Rai Bachchan
Often referred to as one of the most stunning women globally, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan has always been envied for drop-dead gorgeous looks ever since the start of her career. Her clear and glowing complexion is total goals, and the actress has managed to maintain her picture-perfect complexion all through the years.
As Aishwarya Rai Bachchan celebrates her 47th birthday today, we’ve rounded by five simple and effective skincare secrets that the former Miss World crown-holder swears by to keep her skin looking healthy and glowing.
1. Hydration is key
Aishwarya credits her beauty to drinking lots of water. She believes hydration is key to keeping the skin moisturized and nourished. Drinking enough water helps flush out toxins from the body while giving you healthier skin. So, set a reminder if you have to, but don’t forget to drink 8 tall glasses of water every day for skin like Aishwarya’s.
2. Turn to desi nukes for beauty woes
Despite having access to a plethora of skincare products, the actress swears by age-old desi nukes to pamper her skin. Aishwarya revealed that she uses gram flour mixed with turmeric to exfoliate her skin at least once a week. The gentle exfoliating properties of gram flour coupled with turmeric’s brightening benefits help deliver that healthy glow we oh-so-envy.
3. Cucumber juice for the win!
Spending hours in the makeup chair and under harsh studio light can strip the moisture’s skin and leave it looking dull and lackluster. To repair this damage and restore moisture back into the skin, Aishwarya applies freshly squeezed cucumber juice to her face and neck regularly. The antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties in cucumber deliver a boost of hydration and prevent further damage.
4. Follow a healthy diet
‘You are what you eat’ is a motto the actress swears by. She avoids oily and junk food completely and sticks to eating boiled food as it is easier to digest. Healthy, nutritious, and home-cooked meals improve metabolism and deliver essential nutrients to your skin, thereby maintaining optimal skin health.
5. Mindfulness and meditation
Aish believes that stress can take a major toll on your skin and cause it to age prematurely. To avoid this, she dedicates at least some time of the day to meditate, reflect, and feel happy. This helps her feel good from within, ultimately reflecting on the outside, making her look glowy and gorgeous AF.
