For all the 90s kids out there, she’ll always remain the Dhak Dhak Girl of Bollywood. Every girl has grown up dancing to Ek Do Teen and every guy has had a crush on that 1000-watt smile. Yes, we are talking about none other than the gorgeous Madhuri Dixit Nene.

She is one actress who has constantly redefined beauty standards. From making short, wavy hair an absolute style statement back in the 90s to proving that age is just a number, Madhuri has done it all. As the actress turns 53 today, let’s take a look at some of the beauty secrets she swears by…

 

Cleansing is the key to clear skin

Madhuri believes that the secret to clear, glowing skin lies in cleansing. She revealed that she washes her face several times a day at regular intervals using lukewarm water to keep it squeaky clean. You should steer clear of washing your face with hot water as it dries out your skin and makes it parched and flaky.

 

SPF is a must

Before stepping out of the house, Madhuri always applies a generous amount of sunscreen as she believes that the sun damages your skin faster than anything else. Apart from tanning, unprotected sun exposure leads to sallow skin, premature ageing, as well as skin cancer.

 

Honey is a skincare staple

The actress pampers her skin with a lot of DIY masks, but one ingredient that she swears by is honey. And we completely agree with her! Honey is a humectant and helps draw moisture to your skin to keep it intensely hydrated and conditioned. Additionally, it helps deal with skin woes such as dullness, acne, sunburn, etc.

 

Eat a well-balanced diet

She revealed that she eats five meals a day to promote her metabolism. She also revealed that she consumes her food before 7.30 pm as it aids in better digestion.
