Shilpa Shetty Beauty Tips and Fitness Secrets

By  | 

Bollywood superstar Shilpa Shetty seems to have undergone a magical transformation ever since achieving international fame with her win on UK’s TV show – Celebrity Big Brother 5. For those of you wondering how this once gangly actress has turned into one of Bollywood’s most self-assured and fashionable divas, we reveal to you the secrets behind her well-defined features, flawless skin, lustrous hair and hour glass figure.

1. Shilpa Shetty’s Beauty Secrets:

Shilpa Shetty as many of us know wasn’t born beautiful. With a buxom body, a nose too big, a thick mop of bushy hair and eyebrows and makeup that was too loud in her former days, she couldn’t have stood a chance. The realization did dawn on her and then came the slow and steady changes over the years which catapulted her to stardom. The twice-done nose job brought about a major image change for the actress who has infact made no secret of the matter. Everything else followed suit and with a sheer will and determination to look and feel beautiful, the southern belle transformed herself from an ugly duckling to a beautiful swan.

2. Skincare Regime:

Shilpa Shetty as a rule does not use soap. She instead rinses her face in the morning with warm and then cold water and follows it up with a moisturizer and eye cream. Not one to sleep in her makeup, she cleanses her face at night with a homemade blend of Johnson’s baby oil, olive oil and Bio-oil which she massages into her face and wipes off with cotton wool or a hot face towel. In addition to this she drinks around 10 glasses of warm water to keep her skin clear and hydrated. Shilpa Shetty sticks by the ‘less is more’ mantra and never overdoes it with cosmetics and other skin products. She is a self-confessed spa junkie and regularly gets a deep-tissue massage done.

3. Eye Care and Makeup Tips:

Shilpa Shetty’s finely arched brows are another one of her self-defining features. She advises getting one’s eyes threaded at a parlour to avoid in-growing hairs. She is also fond of using the eyelash curler which she believes defines the eyes better than those layers of mascara. One of her secrets tips is to keep your lipstick subtle if you want your eyes to stand out or vice-versa and go with false eyelashes to glam up your night time look.

4. Hair Care Regimen:

Shilpa Shetty keeps her inherent thick, bushy hair looking naturally straight and shiny by blow drying it rather than resorting to hair straighteners and hot styling products. She also changes her shampoo regularly and washes her hair every second day so that the hair is not stripped of its natural oils.

Her Recommendation – using a conditioner from the L’Oreal Kerastase range which really works wonders.

5. Fitness and Diet:

Shilpa Shetty’s lean and mean figure has come a long way from the robust frame it once was. Her devotion to yoga is partly the main reason which has kept her in the spotlight for having one of the hottest bodies in Bollywood. Her other fitness workouts include light runs on the treadmill, lifting light dumb-bells to tone the arms and using heavier weights on the legs for more definition.

When it comes to dieting, the mother of one is strongly against it preferring instead to eat sensibly in right proportions. She never snacks between meals but strikes a balance between what she eats. If she eats heavily during the day, she keeps it light during dinner. She loves drinking green-tea and stays away from fizzy and sugary drinks.

To further aid her healthy eating habits she does not eat after 8 pm and ensures her last meal is consumed at least three hours before bedtime so that her body is able to work off the calories.
