Bollywood star washes with raw milk

Just in case anyone thought that the idea of using raw milk products for skin care purposes was some kind of made-up fantasy, here’s a story from India about a beautiful film star sharing her skin care and beauty secrets:

From The Times of India:

“Actress Aditi Rao Hydari shares her beauty secrets with us.

Skin-tillating! I do some yoga and dance, this makes my skin glow. I keep my skin clean and healthy. An oatmeal pack made at home is what I use for my skin and wash my face with raw milk, some vitamin C and vitamin E serum and moisturiser.

Mane point: Oiling my hair twice a week with organic virgin coconut oil from Navdanya (an organic food store), hair spas as often as possible, Kerastase shampoo for sensitive scalp and a hair mask from Kerastase sum up my hair care regime. This is my regular hair care regime. For the red carpet, I love tousled hair, a side braid or a delicate updo that reveals the neck. My favourite look is that of Audrey Hepburn’s from Breakfast At Tiffany’s.

Any special care you indulge in before a big evening out? I make sure I don’t miss my yoga class on that day as it keeps my glow and endorphins on a high so I don’t need make-up. Also, I use my homemade face pack of oatmeal and saffron and sleep at least seven hours at night.

Make-up mantra for the day and the night: I rarely wear make-up so for the day it’s clean, healthy skin, some suncreen (La Roche-Posay), Blistex or Burt’s Bees lip balm. For the night, I apply the Benefit Bad Gal Primer, some cheek and lip tint (Posie/ Benetint) from Benefit, mascara (Smash Box or Make Up Forever), a pop colour on the lips for fun sometimes, or maybe kohl-lined heavier eyes.

A make-up, skin or hair trick you’ve learnt from someone or an expert: You can curl your hair without tongs or a brush using only a flat iron. My make-up artist Ambereen Yusuf taught me how to do it and I tried this out on almost everyone on the set!…”

    I had a friend, years ago, whose Anthroposophic doctor prescribed raw milk baths for her infant daughter.
