Bollywood divas’ beauty routines include lots of coconut water, oil and moisturizer

Mumbai, May 1 (IANS) Do you wish for glowing skin, soft, shiny hair and a fit body? Take a peek into the beauty regimens of four Bollywood divas, including Deepika Padukone and Nargis Fakhri, to see if their practices can also work for you. Their must-do lists include some constants — such as drink a lot of water and apply moisturizer liberally — but also a variety of individual tips. Enjoy.

My daily skincare regimen includes moisturizer with SPF (sun protection factor) during the day. At night, I remove whatever little makeup I wear and then apply hydrating cream.

Also, plenty of water, balanced meals, regular workouts and adequate sleep figure on my must-do list.

Since my work involves a lot of travelling and exposure to extreme climatic conditions, it ends up taking a toll on my hair. I get tender coconut hair oil massages at least once a week. It helps me protect my hair from any form of damage.

I need a beauty regimen that guarantees results. A 20-minute deep conditioning treatment with hot coconut-based hair oil for my hair really works for me as it locks in the moisture and keeps my hair soft and smooth.

I make sure that I drink two litres of water a day to flush out toxins. I also have coconut water daily and make sure I eat something every two hours. My snacking is limited to health foods like walnuts, almonds and dryfruits. At night, I try to eat a light meal, but sometimes I don’t succeed. I absolutely love desserts and, yes, I cheat very often. I think the key is not to be hard on yourself, but use moderation. One should eat everything in required quantity. You must know what suits your body the best.

I am very particular about cleansing, toning and moisturizing my skin. I am very particular about moisturizing my body with products containing natural ingredients. I also love products with mint as they are so cooling and refreshing.

When your hair is exposed to summer heat, it is imperative to keep it free from dirt and stickiness.

My diet includes more liquids, especially in summer. A lot of fruits and vegetables are an integral part of my diet. I cut down on non-vegetarian food in summer. Lemon and mint juice refreshes and helps me beat the summer heat. Curd and buttermilk are my favourite, especially during summer. For breakfast, egg whites and multigrain toast is the best. For lunch, jawar ki roti and sabzi and for dinner, fish and salad are my safest bet. In between meals, if hungry, I have fruits or curd or buttermilk.

Moisturizing should be a basic body-care regimen to replenish moisture loss due to harsh weather conditions. Coconut-based moisturizers work wonders for the skin as they lock in moisture from escaping the skin’s surface. The result is naturally soft skin throughout the day.

Make sure that your diet includes fibre as it has necessary vitamins and minerals. Balance your diet with rich portions of fruits, vegetables, nuts and liquids. It is important to keep yourself hydrated by drinking lots of water. I have coconut water through the day and it is a vital aspect of my diet.
