Beauty Secrets of the Stars

Do you sometimes catch yourself wondering why female actors and models always manage to look good on cam? Of course we all know that beauty experts are always on their beck and call so it is not impossible for them to have that fresh-from-salon look whenever they want. But what happens when they reach home? How do they manage to look fresh the next day after a late night shoot or pictorial? What are their morning beauty rituals? What do they do after a whole day of exposure to pollutants and harsh spotlights (not to mention those all-night partying)? Here are some of Hollywood's most famous females' beauty secrets:

Cindy Crawford keeps her multi-million dollar skin moisturised with spritzes of equal parts of milk and water that she refreshes with throughout the day.

Jennifer Love Hewitt heals blemishes by applying a dab of toothpaste to the zit overnight.

Daisy Fuentes has a quick weight loss trick of drinking one litre of chamomile tea and one litre of water daily – the combination accelerates fat burning, she claims.

Michelle Yeoh of the upcoming movie ‘Memoirs of a Geisha' rinses her face with lemon juice and water.

Diana Ross stays in shape by doing her own housework! "Cleaning is a tremendous stress reliever and keeps my body taut," says Miss Ross.

Jennifer Lopez, Penelope Cruz, and late Latina bombshell Dolores Del Rio have all claimed that sleep is one of their best beauty secrets.

‘Desperate Housewives' star Teri Hatcher secret is the old adage, ‘less is more.' Since Teri is 40, less makeup makes her look fresher.

A well-known follower of the Atkins diet – forgoing carbs in favour of meats and cheeses – the beauteous Catherine Zeta-Jones also believes portion control helped her lose her baby weight. She employs a nutrition coach who helps her choose the right foods to eat. She also guzzles water and touts sleep as the essentials for a healthy life.

Dubbed as one of "the most unforgettable women in the world" by Revlon, commercial model Kersti Bowser's is not a face easily ignored. What keeps her beautiful? “I eat lots of green vegetables and lots of fruit. I drink at least a quart of water a day – it's good for the skin, bringing out all the impurities.”

Smart actress and doting mother Reese Witherspoon stays healthy and beauteous by being a vegetarian while Selma Hayek's beauty secret is very simple – she takes a bath everyday!

There are a lot more names to drop when it comes to beauty secrets revealed by Hollywood stars but the above list already gives a hint that even among the rich and famous that the simplest and cheapest ways are still the best means of looking young and beautiful. Shouldn't we learn from their good example?
