Priyanka Chopra, 35, spilled the beans about her best beauty secrets (simple DIY scrubs) to Vogue.
She claimed that they are completely natural and have been passed down many generations over the years. The Quantico star explained, “This has been taught to us by our mums and our grand-mums.”
She started off with a bowl of sea salt lip treatment, then swiftly moved onto a honey and yogurt hair mask. Next, Priyanka talked about the ubtan mask she started using as a teenager to soothe her dry skin, “The ubtan was my mum’s way of moisturizing, exfoliating my skin when I was 16. It really soothes—I’ve taught it to a lot of my friends.”
PC assured, “It really does work for me.” Below are some of the easy DIY (do it yourself) recipes she taught us in the video.
1. Priyanka Chopra’s Sea Salt Lip Scrub:
Add a pinch of sea salt, a few drops of pure glycerin, and a few drops of rose water to a bowl. Mix to combine, then gently rub the mixture over your lips. Wash it off, and you will see “plumper, pinker, and smoother lips instantly.”
2. Priyanka Chopra’s Ubtan Body Scrub:
Add a cup of gram flour to a bowl and mix with a few drops of lemon juice and enough Greek yogurt to create a smooth paste (for a thinner texture, also add whole milk). Next, add sandalwood powder and a pinch of turmeric powder. Apply the mixture all over the body, leave it on as a body wrap for 30 minutes, then use a little water to scrub it off and shower as usual.
For oily skin, skim or low-fat milk and fat-free yogurt work best. Whole wheat flour may be substituted, if gram flour is not available.
3. Priyanka Chopra’s Yogurt Scalp Treatment:
For an unhealthy scalp, add full-fat yogurt, a teaspoon of honey, and one egg into a bowl. Mix and apply to the scalp as a mask. Leave it on for 30 minutes, then wash with warm water and baby shampoo.
