Aishwarya believes in the power of hydration for her glowing skin, so she uses the commonly available kitchen ingredient, cucumber, as a must-have component in her natural skincare regime. Cucumber provides much-needed hydration to the skin and the added bonus of a refreshed and cooling sensation. In addition, it makes the skin supple and nourished and removes skin imperfections like wrinkles, fine lines and inflammation.
#1. Cucumber-yoghurt face pack
Amidst her hectic schedule, Aishwarya makes it a point to sneak in a short time to care for her skin. And the only reason for it is to safeguard the skin from the harsh effect of constantly using makeup and facing strong lights. The cucumber-yoghurt face pack used by the actress helps to revitalise the skin within a short time. It makes the skin get refreshed instantly and intensely moisturises the skin to be prepped enough to face the challenges.
Ingredients: 1 teaspoon of yoghurt, half of grated cucumber, 1 teaspoon of honey
How To Make: Mix together the three ingredients into a thick paste. Make sure it is not too runny. Apply it all over your face and neck for about 10 minutes and then rinse it off with cold water.

Having oily skin is not desirable for all of us. It makes us look dull, and the skin feels quite greasy. But, do not dishearten yourselves, as your favourite actress has brought up a DIY solution for it as well. To tackle oily skin problems, Aishwarya uses a homemade face pack made of tomato and cucumber. Tomato has acidic properties, which help to control excess oil production on the skin. It also helps minimises pores, thereby reducing sebum production. The cucumber, on the other hand, helps the skin by acting as a gentle moisturiser.
Ingredients: 2 tablespoons of tomato pulp, 2 tablespoons of cucumber pulp, 1 teaspoon of besan
