When quizzed about her glowing skin, Karisma said, “I don’t do much. I drink a lot of water and try to keep things as simple as possible.

Mother of two boys, Genelia revealed her beauty regimen. “I think olive oil massage does wonders to my hair. It helps to keep the luster and smoothness of my hair intact. Once in a while, I also use an egg mask on my hair to keep them healthy.

In an interview, Mini said, “Once a model friend of mine told me that when you have a zit, an easy way to get rid of it is by mixing a little sugar with water and applying it on that zit. Sugar is an astringent and helps close pores. Another time, right before a shoot, my blush got over. So I rushed into the hotel’s kitchen where we were shooting and took some slices of beetroot. I rubbed it on my cheekbones right before applying my makeup, and you won’t believe the instant glow it gave me.” Aren’t these simply awesome?
