Actor Malavika Mohanan has quickly become a household name thanks to her fantastic performance in Beyond The Clouds and Petta. The beauty, however, is also known for a couple of other things — namely, her fantastic skin and luscious locks. Luckily for us mortals, Malavika Mohanan has revealed her beauty secrets many times, and we know we're not the only ones copiously taking notes.

On Malavika Mohanana’s birthday today, we're letting you in on her best-kept beauty secrets. Read on.


1. Holistic skincare

01. Holistic skincare

The one thing that's glaringly obvious from Malavika Mohanan's Instagram is the fact that she's a fitness buff and clearly takes care of her body. She's all about holistic skincare, since eating clean and working out works really well for your skin — and her's is essentially flawless. Now you know!


2. DIY face pack

02. DIY face pack

The actor has a fascinating hack for fixing her skin, one that her mum taught her. She uses red sandalwood powder mixed with a little yoghurt as a face pack. She said it helps manage scars and acne due to its anti-inflammatory and healing properties. Total win!


3. Natural oil

03. Natural oil

Have you heard of kachiya enna? I hadn't either, but Malavika Mohanan swears by it! This DIY hair oil can be made at home using coconut oil and natural ingredients like tulsi, peppercorns, betel leaf stem, and moringa leaves; the miracle hair oil gives you smooth, silky, and soft hair. And judging by Malavika Mohanan's gorgeous, lush locks, this is one we've got to try!


4. Minimal makeup

04. Minimal makeup

Best known for her kohl-rimmed eyes and nude lips, Malavika Mohanan keeps her makeup minimal, and we're here for it. After adopting kohl at a young age after seeing her mum do her makeup, she's made sure that kohl is a staple in her beauty looks. She generally tends to keep it as natural as possible, and we're digging her soft take on glam for sure.


5. Lip balm

05. Lip balm

The actor swears by lip balm as a saviour for chapped lips, and we're inclined to agree. If chapped lips are something that's bothering you, BTW, might we suggest some good ol' Vaseline Lip Care Total Moisture for some instant pout hydration? It'll make sure your lips stay soft and smooth while repairing chapped lips too.
