Freida Pinto says the secret to her beautiful skin is "vegetable juice".

The 'Slumdog Millionaire' actress - who is the face of L'Oreal make-up - insists her concoctions, which she makes with fresh produce and coriander, improve her complexion.

In an interview with the Daily Record newspaper, she said: "I make loads of fresh vegetable juices with coriander or pepper so that it's tastier. The concoction makes my skin glow and is good for the digestive system too."

Despite being considered one of the most beautiful women in the world, the 26-year-old star admits she used to have doubts about her body and looks.

She explained: "When you doubt something about yourself, you start thinking there's also something wrong with your hair, your body or your clothes."

Freida Pinto is in a relationship with her 'Slumdog Millionaire' co-star Dev Patel and she recently admitted the two stars have a mutual understanding about their careers.

She said: "We can't put our careers on hold for love. We're not at the stage where we have the privilege to turn things down. So we'll say, 'You have two days off? Let's find a way to meet up.' I think you can always make it work if you want to."
