It's no secret that Priyanka Chopra has flawless skin, but the question remains: how does she do it? In a recent video with Harper's Bazaar, Chopra shares a few of her trick for maintaining clean, exfoliated, and hydrated skin with her very own personal beauty guru—her mom.

Chopra reveals that her mom has always been her best resource for gleaning beauty and skincare advice. "Since she was a little girl, she always took care of her skin and made me realize … the importance of it," Chopra says. Much of her wisdom comes from generations of Indian women who discovered their own natural skincare tricks.
According to Chopra's mother, Madhu, cleaning your skin before going to bed is of the utmost importance because that's when the skin has time to breathe. Both Madu and Priyanka swear by coconut oil for a natural clean. They advise working the oil into your skin for a few minutes at night before taking a warm, moist towel to your face and rubbing in the oil to deeply clean and hydrate the skin while the hand towel exfoliates.
When you have more time to spend on your skincare routine, the mother-daughter duo recommend making your own ubtan face mask, a traditional Indian skincare mixture made with turmeric and other natural ingredients you likely already have in the pantry. Here's how it's done.
Whole wheat flour
Combine ingredients in a bowl to create a paste-like texture. If it feels too dry, add rose water until you achieve the perfect consistency. Apply to the skin and leave it on for 15 to 20 minutes. Gently rub the dried mask off the skin to remove fine hairs and dry skin while you exfoliate.
