Mumbai, May 1 (IANS) Do you wish for a glowing skin, soft shiny hair and a fit body? Take a peek into the beauty regimes of Bollywood divas like Deepika Padukone and Nargis Fakhri. They're not skin deep but keep them healthy and beautiful.

Each one of them follows a different regimen, but one thing is common in their must do list - water intake and use of moisturiser.

Here are, as collated by IANS, the health and beauty programmes that Deepika Padukone, Nargis Fakhri, Isha Koppikkar and Evelyn Sharma follow religiously:

Deepika Padukone: My daily skincare regime includes moisturiser with SPF (sun protection factor) during the day. At night, I remove whatever little makeup I wear and then apply hydrating cream.

Also, plenty of water, balanced meals, regular workouts and adequate sleep figure on my must have list.

Since my work involves a lot of travelling and exposure to extreme climatic conditions, it ends up taking a toll on my hair. I get tender coconut hair oil massages at least once a week. It helps me protect my hair from any form of damage.

Nargis Fakhri: I need a beauty regime that guarantees results. A 20-minute deep conditioning treatment with hot coconut-based hair oil for my hair really works for me as it locks in the moisture and keeps my hair soft and smooth.

I make sure that I drink two litres of water a day to flush out toxins. I also have coconut water daily and make sure I eat something every two hours. My snacking is limited to health foods like walnuts, almonds and dryfruits. At night, I try to eat a light meal, but sometimes I don't succeed. I absolutely love desserts and, yes, I cheat very often. I think the key is not to be hard on yourself, but use moderation. One should eat everything in required quantity. You must know what suits your body the best.

Isha Koppikar: I am very particular about cleansing, toning and moisturising my skin. I am very particular about moisturising my body with products containing natural ingredients. I also love products with mint as they are so cooling and refreshing.

When your hair is exposed to summer heat, it is imperative to keep your hair free from dirt and stickiness.

My diet includes more liquids, especially in summer. A lot of fruits and vegetables are an integral part of my diet. I cut down on non-vegetarian food in summer. Lemon and mint juice refreshes and helps me beat the summer heat. Curd and buttermilk are my favourite, especially during summer. For breakfast, egg whites and multigrain toast is the best. For lunch, jawar ki roti and sabzi and for dinner, fish and salad are my safest bet. In between meals, if hungry, I have fruits or curd or buttermilk.

Evelyn Sharma: Moisturising should be a basic bodycare regime to replenish moisture loss due to harsh weather conditions. Coconut-based moisturisers work wonders for the skin as they lock in moisture from escaping the skin's surface. The result is naturally soft skin throughout the day.

Make sure that your diet includes fibre as it has necessary vitamins and minerals. Balance your diet with rich portions of fruits, vegetables, nuts and liquids. It is important to keep yourself hydrated by drinking lots of water. I have coconut water through the day and it is a vital aspect of my diet.
