More than skin deep
Deepika Padukone has skin that glows, but looks like her beauty secrets are based on sheer common sense as opposed to luxe products. She says, "I am not much of a make-up user and stick to the basics like moisturiser and lip balm. I also do not go for regular facials but I do indulge in clean ups once in a while. Almost as a ritual, every week I like to luxuriate in a relaxing body massage with lukewarm coconut or baby oil. It relaxes and rejuvenates me like nothing else."
Someone has added a healthy dose of honesty to B'Town's water supply. How else can you explain all the stars tripping over themselves to admit to having or wanting cosmetic surgery? Now Govinda, of soon-to-be-a-thing-of-the-past chubby fame, is also opting for some corrective surgery for his face. He is also into yoga. Govinda says, "No matter what, I practise yoga every morning. I can now get into tight clothes without cringing." Sign me up now!!

The Treatment: The Reviderm system on which the Diamond Peel is based is not your average beauty treatment, but more a cosmeceutical procedure. It involves cleansing, skin prep, microdermabrasion with the Reviderm skin peeler, the PCA peeling especially over the pigmented areas of your skin and the final application of the skin management gel. Despite some reactions like short-term dryness, you can immediately feel the difference in your skin, which looks cleaner and fresher. However, it's important to follow the post-treatment recommendations to the letter to avoid complications. The doctor recommends anything between four to eight treatment sessions depending on your skin's state and sensitivity.
