Shriya's water therapy!

Actress Shriya Saran, who started her career with the Telugu film Ishtam, has been going places. But wherever she goes, she makes sure she sticks to her health plan - drinking five litres of water everyday!

The beautiful actress, who forayed into Kollywood with Enakku 20 Unakku 18, claims this gives her perfect health, keeps her skin supple and promotes her complexion as well. She says that it is very important for actors to drink plenty of water given the fact that they spend too much time under arclights or the sun.

She says apart from this, a good sunscreen is very important for an actor. She trusts a brand of sunscreen with 50% SPF. And except for a nourishing cream at bedtime, she does not do much for her skin. Yes! We know she has a natural glow, which is growing intense these days with her successful career.

Bollywood queen Katrina Kaif, believes in hydrating her body constantly with water and fruits rich in moisture such as melons, kiwis, and cucumber. Another fan of H2O is Mallika Sherawat, who has a preference for Evian, the French brand of mineral water, which she claims to have miraculous health benefits, as believed by the discoverer of its spring and most French people.

Whether one is an actor or not, one has to drink enough water as it constitutes 70% of the human body. Though many claim drinking excessive water keeps them healthy and their skin supple, there is no scientific proof to support this claim. Many doctors suggest that one should drink around 8 to 10 glasses of water a day as the food also has a water component. And besides, one of the primal instincts of humans will surely let you know when you need water - your thirst!
