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?

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.

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.

5. Aishwarya Rai – Natural Face Packs

Next on the list of celebrity secrets for glowing skin is Aishwarya Rai’s routine. The actress is known for her beauty throughout the world and is an inspiration and a role model for many. Aishwarya uses a lot of natural products as part of her beauty regimen. Her favourites are cucumber for the skin and a mixture of gram flour and yoghurt for cleansing and moisturising. You can easily whip up these packs at home and see the results for yourself! Here are some more homemade packs for glowing skin that you can try.

How many times have we just been mesmerized by this beautiful lady’s hair? Kareena has really lustrous hair, and now we know the secret behind it – natural hair oil! This diva doesn’t use market-based oils. Instead, she massages her hair using almond oil, castor oil or olive oil. These oils are very nourishing for the hair and scalp and also free of any artificial agents that can prove to be damaging.

8. Katrina Kaif – Mineral Face Pack

Kat has such angelic skin that no one can help but be hypnotised by her beauty! To keep her complexion clean, she relies on a mineral clay face pack. This face pack is super effective in removing excess oil and preventing pimples and blemishes.

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! Your skin demands make-up-removal before bedtime or else it tends to become patchy and pigmented over time. Anushka uses a creamy cleanser to wash her face and rose water and neem packs to detoxify skin.

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

A pair of earrings and a cocktail ring are just about enough to take your look to the next level! Especially when they are so gorgeous! Thank you @tanishqjewellery #GlitteratiByTanishq

A post shared by Dia Mirza (@diamirzaofficial) on Jan 4, 2018 at 11:30pm PST

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.

Simple, right? You don’t need to buy expensive cosmetic products to get glowing complexion and healthy hair. These celebrity natural beauty secrets are simple, inexpensive and time-honoured. Get started and look as good as your favourite celebrity today!

In fact, she is so sought after, she had to stop seeing new clients a couple of years ago. If that’s not testament to her skillz, we don’t know what is, tbh.

Sadly, taking a trip to Shani’s salon isn’t really an option (fancy forking out for our plane ticket!?), so the next best thing is memorising her regime so we can DIO (do it ourself).

After getting Shani in for their latest episode of Go To Bed With Me, the heroes over at Harpers Bazaar US got all the deets. And, before you roll your eyes at the prospect of a profoundly pricy set of products, know that her first step comes courtesy of Garnier – so yeah, you’re good…

Micellar Water

“Garnier’s Micellar Water Facial Cleanser Sensitive Skin is great because you can use it for any skin type, it’s really great at removing your makeup,” she says. “I use it on my eye area, and you want to make sure you’re not pulling the area, you want to be really gentle.”

“Compared to a wipe, you’re really able to get everything off and this one is great because there’s no oil so it’s not going to cause congestion.”


“Next I’m going to use my Daily Cleansing Serum. This is a super gentle cleanser, its really great for inflammation, it calms the skin. I like to use gauze because it gently exfoliates the skin. Also, I like to make sure I’m removing everything and gauze is a good way to do that because you can see it all coming off.”

“After I cleanse I’m going to pat my skin dry and then I’m going to use my Daily Toning Essence which is honestly one of my fave prods. It helps to reduce oil production. I only use this at night, it brightens your skin and makes sure you’re removing everything.”


“Retinol Reform is the first product I developed. It contains retinol and lactic acid which exfoliates the skin. It’s great for fine lines, wrinkles, boosting collagen and helps with acne and pigmentation. It’s something I can’t live without and I use almost every night.”

Liquid exfoliator

“When I’m not using a retinol I exfoliate once a week. I use the Dr Dennis Gross Peel Pads, these are great because they have glycolic, salicylic and lactic acid. Its a chemical exfoliant, it sloughs away dead skin and brightens. This is extra strength, but there’s also original strength. I exfoliate once or twice a week – it depends on your skin.”

Eye cream

“IS Clinical Youth Eye Cream is by far one of my fave eye creams and I’ve tried them all. It’s filled with peptides, it’s super hydrating – even after using it for a week it helps with fine lines, wrinkles and brightens the area.”


“A hyaluronic acid serum by Dr Nigma, it’s called Hydrating and Plumping Serum Number 1. Super hydrating and oil free, I use this when I’m feeling a little dry before my moisturiser – sometimes I use it alone. It plumps the skin.”


“A Daily Oil Free Moisturiser, it won’t cause any congestion at all. It’s super calming, has vitamin E and is a really lightweight moisturiser.”

The final thing she swears by are skincare supplements from Lumity. “I take three pills in the morning and three at night. They have everything in them: omegas, all the nutrients, all the antioxidants you need. It’s great for your hair, skin and nails. I’ve been using these for about a year and I can’t even tell you the difference it’s made to my skin.”
