Health & Nutrition - - CONTENTS - HAR­SHA AD­VANI

Bhu­mika Chawla is still re­mem­bered for her amaz­ing de­but per­for­mance in ‘Tere Naam’, op­po­site Sal­man Khan, and her many com­mend­able roles in the South. Af­ter a hia­tus, she will now be seen again on the big screen in ‘Khamoshi’ with Prab­hudeva and Ta­manna. She cues us in on what keeps her look­ing so gor­geous and fit…

Look-Fit Se­cret

“My fit­ness credit goes to Yash, my lit­tle one. I keep run­ning be­hind him all day. I am a hands-on mom, and am any­ways an ac­tive per­son, even if I am not work­ing out. I like to do things around the house and be busy all the time. “Even though I do not work out on a daily ba­sis, I try to fit in ex­er­cise in my sched­ule as and when I get the time. I ei­ther prac­tice yoga, or go for my kick boxing ses­sions. If I don’t do any­thing, I jog around the house for 30-40 min­utes. “On days when I have just no time to spare, I try to take the stairs, in­stead of the

lift. I be­lieve that some­thing is al­ways bet­ter than no ex­er­cise at all.”

Diet

“I don’t fol­low any par­tic­u­lar diet plan, but I try to make sure I in­clude cer­tain things in my diet. For ex­am­ple; in the morn­ing, I have al­monds or wa­ter soaked with la­dyfin­ger. It is re­ally good for the bones. Slit the la­dyfin­ger length­wise into four pieces and soak it in wa­ter. Drink just the wa­ter in the morn­ing. I have nimbu pani and co­conut wa­ter reg­u­larly. I also eat fruits like pa­paya and ba­nana in the morn­ing. “Dur­ing the day, I eat green leafy veg­eta­bles, pulses and a roti.”

Beauty Tips

“My skin tends to dry when I am trav­el­ling. I ap­ply co­conut oil to tackle that. And when I am shoot­ing and have to clean my makeup, I use cleans­ing milk or nor­mal oil, post which I wash my face. “I also use an un­der eye cream. If I don’t have my creams, I make sure I wash my skin and use co­conut oil on it. “On days when I have am­ple time, I mix milk, malai, honey and turmeric, ap­ply it on the face and leave it on for a while, be­fore wash­ing it off. It’s the best skin­care tech­nique. “And yes, with in­creas­ing pol­lu­tion in the city, I leave the house only af­ter ap­ply­ing sun­screen. But the most im­por­tant as­pect for healthy look­ing skin is to be happy. Be­ing happy from in­side shows on your skin and hair. You can have all the dry fruits, treat­ments or do ex­er­cises. But un­til you are happy and calm from the in­side, it won’t show on your face.”
