1. Deepika Padukone – Never Skip Sunscreen
The epitome of the modern, young Indian woman, this gorgeous actress and model flaunts blemish-free skin. Her secret is a simple but often overlooked little product – sunscreen! Deepika swears by sunscreen and doesn’t step out of the house without applying moisturiser with SPF on her face and body.
We tend to think that sunscreen is meant only for those hot, sunny days. However, sunscreen is a must whenever you step out of the house – yes, even in winter! Skincare expert Samer Jaber of Washington Square Dermatology says that no matter how thick those winter clouds may seem, up to 80 percent of the sun’s rays can still come through and harm your skin!
Bonus Tip: Deepika also gets a hot coconut oil hair massage regularly to keep her locks looking lustrous. Time to resume that good old champi, eh?
2. Sonakshi Sinha – Milk-Based Scrub
This stunning actress relies on the goodness of milk for her face. She uses a face scrub prepared with milk, ground almonds and cloves. Sonakshi also adds a pinch of turmeric to this pack. This natural face pack is infused with skin-friendly ingredients and helps restore its natural glow.
3. Kim Kardashian – Sugar in Your Bodywash
This Kardashian sister is a multi-faceted personality. She juggles many different hats such as being an actress, socialite, model, entrepreneur and a TV personality. What’s the secret to her great skin? She uses sugar in her body wash. Sounds weird? Well, when used regularly, this natural exfoliator helps get rid of blackheads and makes skin glow. The glycolic acid in sugar helps to moisturize skin and protect it from toxins.
How to do this: First, wash your skin with soap or your regular body wash. Then, apply sugar to the wet skin over your entire body. Massage it well in circular motion. Rinse off properly.

4. Jennifer Aniston – Petroleum Jelly for the Under-Eyes
Every hairstyle Jennifer Aniston wore on ‘F.R.I.E.N.D.S.’ became an immediate trend! You’ll hardly ever see her wearing a lot of make-up, and she prefers nude, natural-looking colours like shades of brown. The actress has a wonderful beauty secret for her lovely complexion: she uses petroleum jelly under her eyes every night to keep wrinkles and fine lines at bay. In the morning, she fills her sink with water and ice cubes and dips her face in it. This helps shrink the pores of the skin and also reduce puffiness around the eyes.

Anushka Sharma has a well-toned body, a beautiful complexion and lovely, lustrous hair. Her beauty secret is something that many of us overlook in our busy lives – removing makeup properly!

10. Emma Stone – Grapeseed Oil
The popular actress from ‘La La Land’ has seemingly always had terrific skin. But did you know that she actually has super sensitive skin? She revealed the one secret that keeps her complexion clear – grapeseed oil! She uses grapeseed oil to moisturise her sin instead of using any market-brought moisturiser. This oil is rich in vitamin E, antioxidants and linoleic acid, all of which your skin loves.
11. Diya Mirza – Use Conditioner Correctly
Who can help but be envious of this lady’s beautiful tresses? Diya says that the secret to her beautiful hair is using conditioner correctly and according to the weather. A common mistake many women make is to use conditioner liberally throughout the year, assuming it will bring softness to the hair. But the right approach is to use a moisture-intensive conditioner or hair butter in cold weather and cut down on conditioner in hot weather. Diya suggests that you use hair butter twice a week, leave it in for two minutes and then rinse.
