Aishwarya Lekshmi, the Indian actress started her career with the 2017 Malayalam film Njandukalude Nattil Oridavela. With her debut film, she won the Filmfare Award for Best Female Debut-South.
Since then Aishwarya Lekshmi made her name with several great works and won three SIIMA Awards. Other than being an effortless actor, her casual style and flawless skin have also earned quite the attention.
The trained doctor has turned many heads with her girl-next-door smile and natural glow and we are all very curious about her daily routine. So what is Aishwarya Lekshmi’s beauty regime? Let’s get into it!
Aishwarya Lekshmi’s Beauty Routine
Aishwarya Lekshmi’s perfect skin is the result of religiously following the most basic and crucial steps of skincare.
She does not have any extensive beauty routine and does not like experimenting with various products. She instead likes to use a lot of homemade remedies and follows the directions of her dermatologist.
In The Day
As mentioned earlier, the actress with beauty-n-brain combo religiously follows the most crucial steps of skincare, i.e. CTM: Cleansing, Toning, and Moisturizing, followed by sunscreen to keep her natural glow throughout the day.
Starting With A Cleanser
The Ponniyin Selvan actress wakes up in the morning and starts her day with a cleanser as suggested by her dermatologist.
Mostly a cream cleanser as it does not dry out the skin much. The experts suggest washing your face only once a day to clear out the dirt, debris, and dead skin cells before starting your day.
Following With A Toner
The second most crucial step of any skincare routine is Toning. It leaves the skin feeling refreshed and does not strip our natural moisture away. And Aishwarya follows the same by toning to prepare her skin for acne treatments and moisturizers before a hectic day of shooting.
Most people use a salicylic acid cleanser or a glycolic acid toner for acne-prone skin. However, Aishwarya prefers her acne treatment in the form of serums and applies them before her moisturizer as the moisturizer helps the treatment penetrate better into the skin and prevents the skin from drying out.
Moisturizer For Hydration
A good hydrating moisturizer is always important to lock in all the medicinal nutrients from the treatments and protect your skin’s moisture barrier from further environmental damage.
Aishwarya Lekshmi has shared with an interviewer that she always goes for natural, fruit-based moisturizers.
Never Forget Your Sunscreen
Sunscreen or Sunblock is the best way to prevent your skin from premature aging and save your skin from the harmful effects of sun rays. Research says sunblock also helps prevent sunburn and skin cancer.
Being out, shooting all day, Aishwarya never forgets to use two whole strips of sunscreen squeezed onto her index finger and middle finger. It is the appropriate amount of sunscreen that everybody should always use. Men, women, and children, everyone should use sunscreen in an appropriate amount to protect their skin.
“Please use sunscreen that will match your skin”, the actress added.
Aishwarya Lekshmi’s night skincare routine is even simpler than her already basic daily skincare routine.
Cleanser, Toner, And Night Cream
Although experts suggest using cleanser on your face only once a day, we understand Aishwarya washing her face twice after having a bustling day at the shoot.
After cleansing, she follows up her night care routine as she does in the day, with a toner. And ends the regime with her forever favorite super moisturizing fruit-based natural flavored night cream.
What’s In Aishwarya Lekshmi’s Makeup Bag?
Among all of Aishwarya Lekshmi’s beauty tips, the one that she emphasizes the most is not wearing heavy makeup. She ensures that she puts minimal makeup on her skin to prevent her skin from breaking out.
However, being an actress, she has to carry some products to assure looking flawless 24×7.
A Good Black Liner
Even after having such an active, hustling-bustling life, how does she manage to look flawless all the time? She says she always looks up to a good black liner to wing it. If you know what I mean.
She says that a good black winged liner always helps when you are fatigued with huge dark under eyes. It helps take the focus away from your under eyes.
Bronzer For That Subtle Contour
It is now a fact that Aishwarya Lekshmi does not like heavy makeup. However, it is important, in this day and age, to have a sculpted jaw and lifted cheekbones. Thus, to avoid heavy cream contours she chooses to use bronzer for that subtle contour and natural glow.
Blush always helps in returning color to your face when you’re having a rough time and have lost all the color from your face. It is no surprise that Aishwarya carries it with her.
Highlighter For The Glow!
Don’t forget to apply your highlighter on your cheekbones, the bridge of your nose, and above your cupid’s bow. It helps to catch the light and enhance your features.
According to Aishwarya, a little bronzer, a touch of blush, or your favorite highlighter and you’re good to go!
Mini Perfume To Avoid Odor
Perfumes always increase your appeal and of course, we feel more confident when we have perfume on. That is the reason why Aishwarya Lekshmi’s bag is empty without her La Mer mini perfume. It is portable, can be carried in your pocket, and is easy to put on.
Although, her favorite perfume is the Ralph Lauren Woman perfume.
Being an actress, Aishwarya Lekshmi has to touch up her makeup several times a day running around from shoots to other schedules.
Lipstick is a very important makeup product for any person who is a busybody. In one of her What’s in your bag? Interviews, she revealed she carries the lipstick her friend has gifted her in her bag all the time.
Aishwarya Lekshmi’s Beauty Secrets
Aishwarya Lekshmi’s beauty secrets are what our ancestors have been doing all along. She includes eating properly and hot oil massages as part of her skincare routine.
Using Kitchen Ingredients As Skin Remedies
In an interview, she shared that she loves resorting to the kitchen for skincare ingredients including yogurt. Studies show that yogurt is rich in alpha hydroxy acid which helps in targeting blemishes and improving the texture of the skin.
Yogurt, gram flour, and turmeric are good as a face pack for dry skin.
Watch What You Eat
She shared in an interview that she doesn’t get any pimples easily. If and when she does, it usually only appears on her forehead in tiny amounts which goes away when she controls food.
Sometimes she also uses a papaya or a tomato as her skincare product when she is having some.
Proper Water Intake Is A Must!
Many actresses have shared how important it is to have an appropriate amount of water every day. Aishwarya Lekshmi also has advised the same. Have 2.7 liters of water every day for glowing skin!
Hot Oil Massage For Both Hair And Body
Hot oil massage is also one of Aishwarya Lekshmi’s beauty secrets. She shared with Pinkvilla that she takes multivitamins and hot oil massages every week for glowing skin and shiny healthy hair.
Listen To Your Dermatologist
Aishwarya Lekshmi’s beauty regime is curated by her dermatologist. She advised everyone to follow their skin doctor religiously as everyone has different skin and just doing your research is not enough. Always use products that suit your skin type. Your dermatologist knows the best!
Say No To Threading
While talking to Kerala Kaumudi, she shared her love for eyebrows. However, she does not thread. Threading can be very painful and can sometimes cause redness and itching in the areas of hair removal. Thus, she chose her tweezers over threading for maintaining her beloved brows.
While Aishwarya Lekshmi has beautiful features, we have also learned that she likes to go the natural way almost always. She hates touching up her makeup, carries minimal makeup in her bag, and resorts to the kitchen looking for her next skincare ingredient.
Other than showing us an affordable way of self-care she also reminds her fans to not be afraid of wrinkles. The appearance of wrinkles under the eyes is just another sign of aging and is not necessarily a bad thing.
