Rakul Preet Singh has emerged as one of the most versatile actors in the film industry. Apart from charming us with her stellar acting chops, the bubbly actress also makes us go green with envy with her flawless skin and luscious hair. Enamoured by her beauty, we went ahead and did some digging to find out how exactly she maintains her beautiful skin and hair. Here’s what we discovered.
- 01. Full-fledged skincare routine
- 02. Homemade masks to the rescue
- 03. A disciplined workout routine
- 04. A healthy lifestyle
- 05. Sunscreen is a must
01. Full-fledged skincare routine
Singh adheres to a ritualised skincare routine. Her nighttime regimen includes cleansing and toning the face, massaging a serum infused with vitamin C into her skin, smearing the under-eyes with eye cream, and moisturising. You can start off with the Lakmé 9to5 Vitamin C+ Facial Serum. Laced with superfood kakadu plum, the richest source of vitamin C, this lightweight serum repels dullness, ageing, sun-induced damage, and the effects of pollution on the skin, and wards off free radicals. It's loaded with antioxidants, and contains 100 times the amount of Vitamin C as compared to an orange. And it's infinitely portable. So ladies, if you want glowing skin like Rakul, start following your skincare routine religiously.
02. Homemade masks to the rescue
The actress reveals that she concocts a lot of homemade masks to revive her skin’s glow. One of her favourites includes mixing mashed banana with a teaspoon of honey and juice from half a lemon. Once the mask has dried, she rinses it off with water. This mask is particularly beneficial for dry skin. We for sure can’t wait to try this one out.
03. A disciplined workout routine
Rakul credits her glow to her fitness routine as well. She believes that you must sweat for your skin to glow, and we concur. She doesn’t stick to one form of exercise high-intensity workouts, cycling, and adventure sports are all a part of her fitness schedule.
04. A healthy lifestyle
Apart from working out, Singh practises yoga as well. And her Instagram feed attests to that. She performs several asanas including Padahastasana, Cobra pose and Surya Namaskar. These asanas are beneficial in that they improve the health of your digestive organs as well as your metabolism, increase your concentration, and stretch your muscles, among other things.
05. Sunscreen is a must
Singh doesn’t step out without sunscreen — and neither should you. Using good sunscreen is extremely important. I avoid using too many products and often rely on versatile options, such as a primer with sunscreen that can act as a light tint on the face for a semi-foundation finish.
