From turmeric face masks to baking soda spot remedies, you need to know these at-home skincare hacks from the A-list.
DIY celebrity beauty tricks to try at home
Ever wondered how actress Priyanka Chopra gets that enviably glowing complexion? Or what supermodel Adriana Lima does to achieve her perfectly shiny locks? Hint, it’s not down to a shelf of pricey products, but ingredients that you are likely to already have stocked in your kitchen.
Priyanka Chopra’s Brightening Face Mask
Actress and former beauty queen Priyanka Chopra is known for her flawless skin. Sure, she may have an army of make-up artists at her manicured fingertips, but to keep her famous skin glowing she follows a few simple all-natural beauty tricks handed down from her mother.
Her easy beauty ritual includes cleansing with coconut oil and an at-home “Ubtan” mask that involves mixing two spoons of whole wheat flour, a squeeze of lime juice, a scoop of creamy yoghurt, a little rose water and the star ingredient, a pinch of turmeric powder.
Leave on for 20 minutes then gently rub to exfoliate before rinsing with warm water to reveal clearer, brighter skin in a flash.

Adriana Lima’s Glossy Locks Treatment
After two decades in the fashion industry, supermodel Adriana Lima has certainly learnt a thing or two when it comes to personal grooming. Speaking to intothegloss.com, the Brazilian beauty revealed that she treats her mane to a weekly conditioning mask mixed with fresh avocado – a great natural remedy for adding a serious dose of hydration and shine.
Leave on for 30 minutes or longer under a shower cap (to help lock in heat and moisture) before rinsing with cold water.

Kendall Jenner’s Spot Solution
When model Kendall Jenner listed a baking soda blemish remedy on her app we immediately put it to the test. Many pimples later (we blame the festive party season) and it’s still one of the most effective treatments we have tried to help dry out a spot.
The thrifty DIY concoction includes just half a teaspoon of baking soda, half a teaspoon of lemon juice (to help clear dead skin) and a drizzle of honey (known for its antibacterial and soothing properties).
Just stir to make a paste and dab on the pimple and rinse after 10 minutes.
