We all require around 2 liters of water every day to stay healthy. But for the beauty queens, water is not a mere necessity but a step towards beauty. Drinking ample amounts of water, but not overdoing it, ensures that the skin remains supple. The more water you drink, more toxins are washed out of your body. You can also try detox drinks to keep yourself hydrated. Actors and actresses take care to keep themselves hydrated at all times.

3. Turmeric

Turmeric, in its raw form, can do a lot of good to our body. Raw turmeric is a good disinfectant, thus its intake can help you stay healthy. At the same time, raw turmeric can offer your skin fairness and glow. So, you can either ingest it with milk or rub it on your skin directly.

4. Coconut

Coconut is a beauty saver for most actors and actresses. Apart from the fatty flesh, the coconut water as well as coconut oil can help a lot. Coconut water is an excellent antioxidant. It can flush all the toxins out of your body. Coconut oil can be excellent for your skin and your hair.

There are various kinds of oils used by Bollywood stars to improve their skin and especially their hair. Most of these oils are readily available in the market like the oil extracts of amla, almond, castor and reetha.

7. Greens

A healthy stomach can result in a healthy body. Taking a lot of greens ensures proper roughage intake. This means that your body will be cleared of all the toxins with the help of the greens. So, have a green diet to stay fit and beautiful like the stars.

8. Milk And Yoghurt

Both milk and yoghurt can boost radiance. One can have the milk and yoghurt or one can apply them on their skin to get the desired results. This is one of the wonderful beauty secrets of Bollywood actresses.

9. Fish

Adding fish to your diet is a good way of giving your body the much needed nutrients. Fish offers the antioxidants that your body needs. Fish also offers nutrients that have an anti ageing effect on your skin.

10. Moisturize

Drinking ample quantities of water may not be enough to ensure supple skin. You need to keep your face and body moisturized at all times. Actresses, like Nargis Fakhri, know the benefits of using a moisturizer. Use moisturizers that suit your skin. Use day creams during day and night creams during night. Know your skin type. This is essential if you want to have a smooth and supple skin.

11. Cleanse

Keeping your skin clean can be the best way to start looking gorgeous. If you do not cleanse your skin then the pores will get blocked and your skin will no longer look radiant.

12. Makeup Secrets

When you see clear skin, matte finish or glowing face on screen, it has much to do with how the makeup artist has used the brushes to  enhance the right contours and features.

Looking beautiful is a tough task especially when you have a troublesome skin. To hide the flaws with the right makeup is quite an art. Many Bollywood actresses swear by three makeup essentials, namely, the right foundation matching your skin tone, a concealer and nice compact that evens out the shade of your skin.

Selecting the right colour for yourself is extremely important to look pleasant. Do not follow makeup trends blindly.

Bollywood divas like Rekha, Hema Malini, Aishwarya, Juhi, Sonali Bendre, and Karishma are living examples of how a healthy lifestyle can camouflage your age.
