Preparing for an Event
When the diva has to prepare for an event, she modifies her diet a bit. She cuts down on alcohol and salt while boosting her intake of green smoothies. Apart from making these diet changes, she ensures that she gets regular sleep and drink loads of water. She says that when your skin is hydrated, you will look beautiful!
If you want to take care of your skin as she does, then you should keep your skin clean, hydrated, use a toner if your skin is dry and go for occasional facials as she does. But before you invest in expensive skin care products, do remember that Kate believes beauty begins with health.
Beauty is Health
The English actress believes that real beauty is not about looking at the mirror and thinking how pretty you are. Now, beauty for her means her desire to feel healthy and happy. She feels beautiful when she is being a good mum, doing good work at her job and loving her family. She also thinks that when women care about themselves first, they are better able to take care of the others.
The winner of three British Academy Film awards says that she works out regularly but not frantically. Her workout sessions involve barre cardio and yoga as she loves both these exercises. Kate also walks a lot, especially with her dog who needs a lot of walking. Sometimes she does yoga 4 times a week and sometimes, the sessions last more than two hours.
No Weights Please
The Oscar winner has also recently admitted that she has no idea about her exact weight and she hasn’t weighed herself in 12 years.
The Berkshire born likes to pamper herself by having a cup of tea and enjoying a crossword.
Being Fit for Titanic
There were a lot of rumors going around that the makers of Titanic were worried about Winslet’s weight while filming Titanic. Rubbishing the claims that she was ever pressurized to look good, the mother of three said that the filmmakers wanted everyone to be strong enough to get through the experience.
To ensure that all the actors remained strong, they were asked to swim three or four times a week. But as this technique wasn’t enough, a personal trainer was hired to ensure that they all looked great and remained fit for the tough filming conditions.
