2. Water Is Her Best Friend
One unsaid rule when it comes to skincare is – Hydration, hydration, and hydration. Water keeps you hydrated and flushes out the toxins from your body.

Drinking adequate amounts of water in a day will help you keep your circulatory strain normal and also provide the body with necessary hydration and moisture. Think of your skin like a barren land, if you nourish the land with water, it can grow into a beautiful forest, else it will perish.

According to the World Health Organisation, India is home to 12 percent of the world’s smokers. Be it stress, peer pressure, or personal choice, smoking has become a popular habit among youngsters and elders alike. Additionally, we all don’t mind drowning ourselves in alcohol when it comes to partying or crying our sorrows away. But, if you want to save yourself from premature aging and keep your skin beautiful like Aishwarya’s then you have to do what she does. It’s simple – Just say no to smoking alcohol.
4. She Believes In Home Remedies For Healthy Skin
No matter how many exotic serums or sheet masks we buy for ourselves, there’s something about home remedies right? Aishwarya too believes that ingredients from the kitchen are the best-kept secret to beautiful skin. She uses a mix of gram flour (besan), turmeric, and milk as an exfoliant. To moisturize her skin, she uses natural yogurt without any flavoring. Furthermore, fresh cucumber mash is another face mask that she swears by. She also says that the easiest way to fight skin problems is by regularly washing the face and moisturizing it.
5. She Keeps Processed Food At An Arm’s Length
It’s not rocket science that junk food and processed food spells disaster for the health of the skin. Aishwarya believes that eating a lot of fruits, veggies, and loading up on minerals, antioxidants, and vitamins is essential for the skin to remain fresh and hydrated. Aishwarya strictly avoids fattening food and always chooses healthier options. Another important tip from her kitty is to eat several small meals throughout the day rather than eating 3 big meals.
