Priyanka Chopra is not what we call a traditional Indian beauty. She is unconventionally beautiful with a sun-kissed skin and prominent features. She is what I call a global beauty. She has a face that is suitable for playing roles of Indian women and as well as international. She is tremendously attractive and her looks are always on point. Whether she is on the red carpet or on the streets of NY, she never fails to enthrall her fans.
Since the time she has been crowned the Miss World back in 2000, her journey in the glamour world took a flight. And since then, her beauty game has evolved over the years. She confesses that she learned things on her own about being beautiful. "I was 18 when I started acting in India. I didn't understand what 'movie glamour' was about, or makeup, or hair styling. It took me a few years to become a version of myself where I wasn't overdoing everything — the extra eyelashes, the extra jewelry. By the time I came to the States, I was a lot more confident in myself as a woman because I had spent that time on myself and found what worked for me."
Chopra has a flawless skin and lustrous hair and she credits that to a few beauty secrets that she has been following since ages. She has access to every cosmetics and beauty products in the world that can take care of her skin and hair, but she relies only on beauty tips that her mother has given her. Along with her mother, she has dished out a few beauty secrets that we can all follow that it is inexpensive.
For cleansing her face:
No, she doesn’t use a fancy cleanser to remove her makeup after a long day at the shoot. It is the humble coconut oil that lies harmlessly on every Indian kitchen shelf. She advises on leaving the coconut oil on her skin for a few minutes before rubbing it off with a warm hand towel. It not only cleanses but at the same time hydrates and exfoliates our skin.
For her body:
Take whole wheat flour (you can replace this with besan also), turmeric powder, lime juice, full-cream yogurt and rose water in a bowl. Mix it all together to make an ubtan face mask or body scrub. You might use more rose water to get the required paste-like consistency. Apply it to your skin and after 15-20 minutes gently rub it off to scrub the dead skin cells and wash your face well.
She also says that for oily skin, use a fat-free yogurt or low-fat milk.
Ubtan can be used both as a body scrub and as a face mask.
For her lip scrub:
It doesn’t take a lot to maintain that pink pout. Take a pinch of sea salt, few drops of glycerin and few drops of rose water and mix it. Apply on your lips and gently rub in circular motions. Wash it off to get a pair of naturally plump, pink and smooth lips. If you have pigmentation on your lips, add a few drops of lemon juice. After scrubbing lips, apply a moisturizing lip balm.
For her scalp and hair:
Her hair care routine is also pretty simple from everything that we have sitting in our kitchen and fridge. Add full-fat yogurt with a tsp of honey and an egg in a bowl. Mix well and apply on scalp and hair as a mask. Leave it for 30 minutes before you wash it off with warm water and baby shampoo. Baby shampoo is a preferable option for healthy scalp and hair as it contains no sulfates and does not dry your hair out.
