I enjoyed a wonderful full body massage today at the spa and had to come back and share with you all that this is one of Bollywood actress Deepika Padukone’s favorite beauty secrets! Deepika told the Times of India she has a coconut oil massage every week to “relax and unwind”.
Massage has a host of health benefits that go beyond easing pain and strained muscles. Rigorous professional massage can also boost immunity, ease the symptoms of PMS, reduce stress hormones and increase “feel-good” hormones, reduce blood pressure, stimulate circulation to the muscles and skin, and encourage better sleep.
Deepika’s not alone among celebrities to relish regular massages. Sonam Kapoor says they “refresh and uplift her” (Filmfare), and Prachi Desai claims that “hot stone massages rid me of stress like nothing else” (Cosmopolitan). Actress and dancer Urvashi Sharma says: “A good body massage twice a month is a must, as it completely rejuvenates me” (Bwood Beauty).
There are many forms of massage out there for you to try: Swedish massage, deep tissue massage, hot stone massage, Ayurvedic oil massage… when you want to luxuriate, try it out and feel the incredible benefits!
