To maintain her good looks, she always tries to have inner beauty and for that, she sleeps enough and eat healthy stuff like fruits, vegetables, etc. While young, she also used to drink pork bone soup (which she calls it as beauty soup) daily, which her dad used to make.
Though, she puts a clay mask and egg whites on her face 3 times a week.
