Smart, vivacious and extremely beautiful, Shriya Pilgaonkar is winning hearts everywhere! If you were to scroll her through her Instagram page, you would notice that the actress is blessed with gorgeous, glowing skin and does not shy away from flaunting it. Wondering how the lovely actress manages to have skin that could make anyone go green with envy? Well, we know how!

Be Beautiful’s January 2020 cover girl follows a really simple yet effective skincare routine and that is something that aligns perfectly with our theme for this month - Back to Basics. Watch this video to find out everything that Shriya does in a day to keep her skin healthy and glowing.

Tip #1: You are what you eat

Shriya is quite particular about what she eats, which is one of the reasons why she has such great skin. What you put inside is what shows on the outside. But when you do indulge in junk food, make sure not to enjoy that too. Giving the food bad energy will result in it having a not-so-great effect on your skin too.  

Tip #2: Keep your skin clean

Cleansing your face properly is an absolute basic. Shriya uses pure coconut oil to remove makeup and never sleeps without getting all of it off her face. This little step goes a long way in preventing clogged pores, acne and other skin problems.

Tip #3: Never skip sunscreen

We can’t tell you enough how important sunscreen is to unlock the skin of your dreams. Shriya says that her skin is prone to pigmentation, and therefore, she never leaves her house without sunscreen. It is also equally important to apply sunscreen when you’re indoors, as the light coming through your windows or your computer screen could cause UV damage. She uses the Simple Kind To Skin Protecting Light Moisturiser SPF to keep her skin protected.

Tip #4: Indulge in a homemade face mask

In order to keep her skin healthy, Shriya swears by a homemade face mask that she learnt from her grandmother. She mixes together some besan, turmeric, rose water and malai and applies it to her face for soft, supple and glowing skin. She says that this face mask makes her skin look bright and clear the next morning.

Tips #5: Skincare on the go - hydration, moisturiser, sunscreen

Shriya’s skin is sensitive, which is why she needs to ensure that her skin stays sufficiently hydrated all the time. Along with using the right kind of moisturiser, it is important that you drink A LOT of water. It will help flush out the toxins from your system and keep your skin clean and healthy from the inside, so it’s glowing on the outside.
