In order to keep your skin clean, radiant and glowing, it is essential to exfoliate your skin regularly — and Dia does so without fail. But instead of using chemical-laden scrubs, she concocts her natural exfoliator by mixing together walnut powder, aloe vera and plum. This helps in sloughing away dead skin cells to reveal gorgeously radiant and flawless skin.


5. Uses fruit peels for a quick DIY facial

A major secret to Dia’s creamy complexion is in her sustainable approach to skincare. The actress believes in zero wastage and therefore aims to utilise every part of the food she is eating by using it as a face pack whenever she can. She rubs the fruit peels on her face and neck, allows it to rest for about 10 minutes and then rinses it off to reveal supple and radiant skin.
