Los Angeles: Actress Eva Mendes says the secret to her flawless skin is her meat-free diet. She only eats fish to keep her skin healthy.

She also drinks three litres of water a day to stay hydrated.

"I eat a lot of fish. I haven`t eaten any meat at all for several years now and I`ve noticed that my skin looks a lot better and much healthier," quoted her as saying.

But she has other beauty mantras too.

"I believe beauty starts from within, so I exercise, eat well and drink three litres of water a day. It all begins with hydration," she added.

The 38-year-old even limits the amount of time she spends in the shower to conserve water.

"Taking a five-minute shower always helps the environment. Plus it`s a great way to make sure I`m out of the house sooner therefore always running on time," she said.
