We've got skin care tips from beauty icon—actor, singer Priyanka Chopra—be it homemade scrubs she swears by or the "yogurt bath" her grandmother introduced her to!
The secret of Priyanka Chopra's luminous skin and hair is homemade beauty potions — made from ingredients found on her kitchen shelf! "I like homemade skincare products; at times I just make up the recipe on the spot! My favourite is a face scrub with rice flour and honey — mix a cup of water with 2 tsp rice flour, 1 tsp honey. Leave it on for 30 minutes and massage it into face before rinsing! The rice exfoliates while the honey moisturises and brightens skin. My mom taught me about a homemade masque which I use religiously. It's made with 1 ripe banana, 1 egg yolk, 2 tsp honey. Mash it and refrigerate for an hour, then spread over skin; leave it for 30 minutes before rinsing. A last tip? Slather thick moisturiser after removing makeup and leave it on overnight. The ingredients sink into skin while you're asleep and restore lost moisture!!"
"One should not be satisfied looking after facial skin! Body needs attention too! I bathe with yogurt at times because it's hydrating. Slather it on the body, wait a few minutes and shower. Do this on alternate evenings! I have always believed in natural therapies. My grandmother taught me to massage warm coconut oil in the hair at night, for shine. It works! I have homemade lip balm too — fresh cream! Applying it on lips and leaving it on overnight softens and hydrates lips!" Priyanka is strict about a diet regime. "I drink plenty of coconut water and love snacking on sprouts and raw vegetables. My meals are all bakes and stews, never fried stuff! And none of what I do costs; it’s all in your kitchen shelf or refrigerator—just strengthen the will to make this regimen a part of your daily routine."
