Russian theater and film actress Ravshana Kurkova looks just fine - you can't even say that she is 41 years old! Naturally, many have questions. And the main thing: how does she do it? Ravshana rarely shares her self-care tricks on Instagram, but we remembered her interview with the Buro 24/7 portal, in which the actress talked about her beauty rules. Take note if you want to delay the appearance of wrinkles and maintain a slim and fit figure.
Beauty begins in the morning
According to Ravshana, every morning she starts with a glass of water with lemon and a pill with echinacea. It is useful not only for immunity, but also for the general condition of the body and skin. In addition, lemon water helps in weight loss. For breakfast, Kurkova eats oatmeal in water with various additives (dried apricots, nuts, goji berries). Another morning ritual of the actress is eye patches.
Care VS make-up
Ravshana admitted that she began to paint rather late: the fact is that her family treated decorative cosmetics negatively, her grandmother was especially strict. But facial care, on the contrary, received careful attention. The actress recalls how her grandmother made masks from ordinary products - cucumber, strawberries, sour cream. And she always had fantastic skin. “Grandma thought a well-groomed naturalness was more feminine than a ton of makeup. She said that the earlier you start to paint, the faster your face loses its natural beauty and turns pale over the years. Maybe they scared me like that as a child, but it really works,”Kurkova shared.
Ravshana spoke about how she takes care of her skin. “The first stage is a cleansing gel for washing, then a foam, toner, serum, depending on the condition of the skin at the moment, only then - a night cream. It is enough for me for the area around the eyes, for the neck and décolleté, I often even apply it on my hands,”the actress notes.
Kurkova has no time for a beautician, so she prefers home care and does masks, peels and scrubs once a week. Her favorite mask is a moisturizing mask. The girl says that she applies it at night, and in the morning the skin looks like after a vacation.
Another secret of Ravshana is healing baths. She adds ingredients that can be bought at the pharmacy to it: pine concentrate or iodine-bromine salt and a few drops of essential oil (eucalyptus or fir). Fifteen minutes of such a bath plus five minutes of a contrast shower is very useful.
In addition, the actress tries to eat right. Not without physical exertion: despite a good figure by nature, she understands that she needs to be supported.
Must-have products for Kurkovaya: sunscreen with SPF 30, hair protection from the sun and thermal water. “I always have sun protection in my Range Rover because my skin is prone to pigmentation. Despite the fact that I am dark, I use SPF of at least 30 for my body. There are always products to protect hair from the sun: burnt hair looks, of course, beautiful, but it becomes very dry and brittle. I also take thermal water with me,”says the actress.
Attitude towards anti-aging procedures and plastic
Ravshana is convinced that every girl should take care of herself, but everything should be in moderation: “Yes, a woman should remain a woman: clean skin, healthy teeth, manicure if possible, good hair - of course, you need to take care of yourself. But fanaticism with surgery, aggressive cosmetic procedures often backfire. It is important to understand that age also manifests itself with a smooth face. Old age is not wrinkles, what is more important is what you broadcast, how much strength, energy, desires, lightness you have. When your eyes are burning, you feel alive, you are happy, you can fall in love with your wrinkles without memory."
