Aishwarya Rai Bachchan is oft-heralded as the most beautiful woman in the world. She’s a former Miss World, a Bollywood actress and the wife of fellow actor Abhishek Bachchan. But how does a woman who has been dubbed the “most beautiful in the world” keep up with that kind of pressure? Just thinking about it, makes us sweat.
But the stunner has secrets, which she has shared with Harper’s Bazaar Bride. For instance, to get her shiny and bouncy hair, Aishwarya recommends coconut oil massages. And not just coconut oil massages, but egg and olive hair packs, milk and honey hydrating masks, and mayo and avocado moisturizing packs. It’s a pretty darn natural approach to hair care, but she does splurge on L’Oreal serums and Kerastase spa treatments.
As for makeup? The bombshell admits that “waterproof mascara and liner is a good idea.”
But for the most part, her entire beauty routine seems so organic and there’s a kind of whatever-is-in-the-fridge approach to what she uses. For radiant skin, she swears by besan (garbanzo bean flour), cream and turmeric. But she’s also had success with honey and curd, a banana face mask, and milk and almond oil face packs.
And to keep well, the Bollywood starlet swears by aromatherapy. She uses aromatic oils for various uses, like sandalwood for soothing skin, chamomile or lavender to relieve stress, anxiety and insomnia, eucalyptus or lemongrass to keep infections at bay, and rosemary for calmness and clarity.
And there you have it. You don’t need to spend thousands of dollars to recreate the look of one of the most famous visages in the entire world. In fact, you can basically make it all yourself if you’re keen.
