Do you wish for a glowing skin, soft shiny hair and a fit body? Take a peek into the beauty regimes of Bollywood divas like Deepika Padukone and Nargis Fakhri. They’re not skin deep but keep them healthy and beautiful.

Each one of them follows a different regimen, but one thing is common in their must do list – water intake and use of moisturiser.


Here are, as collated by IANS, the health and beauty programmes that Deepika Padukone, Nargis Fakhri, Isha Koppikkar and Evelyn Sharma follow religiously:

Deepika Padukone: My daily skincare regime includes moisturiser with SPF (sun protection factor) during the day. At night, I remove whatever little makeup I wear and then apply hydrating cream.

Also, plenty of water, balanced meals, regular workouts and adequate sleep figure on my must have list.

Since my work involves a lot of travelling and exposure to extreme climatic conditions, it ends up taking a toll on my hair. I get tender coconut hair oil massages at least once a week. It helps me protect my hair from any form of damage.

Nargis Fakhri: I need a beauty regime that guarantees results. A 20-minute deep conditioning treatment with hot coconut-based hair oil for my hair really works for me as it locks in the moisture and keeps my hair soft and smooth.

I make sure that I drink two litres of water a day to flush out toxins. I also have coconut water daily and make sure I eat something every two hours. My snacking is limited to health foods like walnuts, almonds and dryfruits. At night, I try to eat a light meal, but sometimes I don’t succeed. I absolutely love desserts and, yes, I cheat very often. I think the key is not to be hard on yourself, but use moderation. One should eat everything in required quantity. You must know what suits your body the best.

Isha Koppikar: I am very particular about cleansing, toning and moisturising my skin. I am very particular about moisturising my body with products containing natural ingredients. I also love products with mint as they are so cooling and refreshing.

When your hair is exposed to summer heat, it is imperative to keep your hair free from dirt and stickiness.

My diet includes more liquids, especially in summer. A lot of fruits and vegetables are an integral part of my diet. I cut down on non-vegetarian food in summer. Lemon and mint juice refreshes and helps me beat the summer heat. Curd and buttermilk are my favourite, especially during summer. For breakfast, egg whites and multigrain toast is the best. For lunch, jawar ki roti and sabzi and for dinner, fish and salad are my safest bet. In between meals, if hungry, I have fruits or curd or buttermilk.

Evelyn Sharma: Moisturising should be a basic bodycare regime to replenish moisture loss due to harsh weather conditions. Coconut-based moisturisers work wonders for the skin as they lock in moisture from escaping the skin’s surface. The result is naturally soft skin throughout the day.

Make sure that your diet includes fibre as it has necessary vitamins and minerals. Balance your diet with rich portions of fruits, vegetables, nuts and liquids. It is important to keep yourself hydrated by drinking lots of water. I have coconut water through the day and it is a vital aspect of my diet. (Bollywood Country)

People stroll early morning at the Mumbai promenade.

Prior to the brutal second wave of the pandemic, Prime Minister Narendra Modi had cautioned civil services probationers against developing the despised "babu mindset". He gave the invaluable piece of advice while addressing civil services probies at the well-known Lal Bahadur Shastri National Academy of Administration in Mussoorie via video-conferencing. He also outlined the keystone mantra of "minimum government and maximum governance".

With the recent collapse of the under-construction flyover in Bandra Kurla Complex which injured 14 labourers, it seems like the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) has got the PM's keystone mantra all wrong. The recent flyover collapse isn't an isolated incident, in fact, a month ago a similarly bemusing incident took place in the eastern part of the suburbs.

Pind Daan at Jagannath Ghat, Kolkata.

The Pitru Paksha starts after the Full Moon day, and this day marks the beginning of the waning phase of the Lunar cycle. This event is roughly of 15-day period, and is of great significance. From this day, rituals like Tarpan or Tarpanam and Shradh are carried out to pay respects to dead relatives and ancestors.

It is believed that from the very first day till the last day, the unhappy souls of the deceased return to the Earth to see their family members. So, in order to ensure that the dead attain Moksha, i.e. to get liberation, family members of these souls quench their thirst and satisfy their hunger by performing the Pind Daan, which includes offering food consisting of cooked rice and black sesame seeds. The literal meaning of Pind Daan is the act of satisfying those who no longer exist physically.
