Hot, cute, trendy, seductive, sensuous, bubbly, expressive and much much more, the British-born Indian beauty, Katrina Kaif is undoubtedly a diva. Even in her 30s, she looks as sparklingly flawless as ever. And, if there is any Bollywood actress whose beauty and fitness secrets are most sought after, it is indeed Katrina Kaif!
Our ardent readers, especially the soon-to-be brides have bombarded us with requests to get an insight on her beauty and fitness secrets. So, here we are with some great beauty tips from the diva herself. Who knows, following them, you might cast the same magic as her on the man of your dreams!
You will be surprised to know that Katrina's skincare routine is absolutely simple - just go natural! According to her, the easiest way to get a flawless, glowing skin is by keeping it hydrated i.e having 4 to 5 glasses of water early in the morning to boosts skin cells. Not only does it help in detoxifying the body, but aides in healthy blood circulation as well.
Once in a while, she indulges in pampering her body with facials and massages. It increases the blood circulation, in turn, making her skin glow from the inside. During the day, she swears on using just a face wash and cleansing milk from time to time. And, during the night, she never misses out on her daily routine of cleansing, toning and moisturising. For beauty emergencies, she relies on mineral mud masks as they help to remove the skin impurities quickly.
The secret behind her buttery smooth and glowing skin is her love for being natural. She rarely puts make-up when she is not shooting which results in her flawless complexion.
Katrina is one such actress who oozes out glamour even without make-up and never goes for a too-much-make-up look. Her life-saving make-up essentials that she always carries with her are a lip balm and a moisturising sunblock. For someone who travels a lot, she truly knows the importance of applying sunscreen. She makes sure to never step out without putting on moisturising sunblock.
Foundation is one make-up product that she tries to avoid as far as possible. What's more? And, now is the time to reveal her secret make-up trick that she swears by; applying ice, wrapped in a muslin cloth all over on her face to prep up, before applying any make-up products.
But, due to her work commitments, she too is sometimes required to look extra glamorous than usual. So, for the magical effect, she goes with a lot of kohl and mascara for the eyes, and a good lip gloss.
P.S.: Katrina stresses that it is important to remove all makeup before you hit the bed in the night.
For the various hairstyles for movies, parties and promotions, the actress has to expose her hair to blow drying, straightening, hair colouring and what not. Therefore, she ensures that her mane and scalp go through religious hair care, which includes deep conditioning once a week.
Katrina can never step out of her house without a leave-in conditioner. It keeps her tresses shiny and manageable throughout the day. And before using any heat applicators, Katrina makes sure that she uses heat protectants and serums.
She recommends using hair care products suiting their tresses that are exposed to excessive heat, dust and treatments. And, she always brushes her hair with a paddle brush.
For Katrina, swimming, jogging, weight training and dancing are her mantras for a good body. She is addicted to yoga and meditation as well. After all, style and beauty do not come only with a flawless face, but also how you carry yourself.
She believes that a body must feel light before it hits the bed for the sleep. So, eating two hours before sleeping is what she follows religiously.
In an interview with a leading media portal, Katrina’s fitness trainer Yasmin Karachiwala talked about Katrina’s fitness regimes.
About her body type and what kind of workout suits her, Yasmin said:
"Working on her legs is what Katrina's favourite is. We train differently for the various looks each role demands. The curtsy lunge is her favourite exercise. Her routine includes a lot of functional training combined with Pilates and an hour of cardio every day."
Which is Katrina’s strongest part of the body?
"Katrina is a strong girl and loves challenges. She makes me work out with her as she likes to ensure that she trains as hard as me. Her strongest asset is her mind; if/when she sets her mind to do something, she definitely achieves it. She never shies away from something because she thinks she might not be able to do it."
Katrina and Yasmin shared some work out videos of Katrina on their official Instagram accounts. Here are those videos:
For Katrina, the real beauty lies within one's self. If you feel good from inside, you will look good as well. So, the stunning diva pays a lot of attention to the food she eats. She follows a macrobiotic diet, which means that she eats fresh fruits and boiled vegetables after every two hours.
She avoids carbohydrates and empty calories and eats food rich in iron, vitamins and proteins. Fruits are a top priority in her diet chart, especially acai berry. This keeps her body healthy and the skin smiling all the times.
Yasmin shared about the food items Katrina abstains from:
"Sugar, wheat, milk, fried food and alcohol are avoided in her food plan. She eats whole foods that are nutritious; they keep her lean and her skin glowing! Preserved packaged food is also something that she keeps away from. She eats smart and listens to her body and needs—she avoids gluten, dairy and sugar, and tries to include protein, fibre and good fats in all her meals"
Remember while following all her tips, it is important for you to know your own body as well. So what are you waiting for? Start today! Work out, eat healthily, pamper your skin, wear the right makeup, and be a diva yourself.
