I feel beautiful…“Whenever I am happy.”
My Beauty inspiration… “My mom.”
My best beauty notes… “I believe that beauty comes from within. It is your inner happiness and your self-confidence that truly shines through and makes you beautiful. I am not a beauty junkie and prefer keeping it simple, with my kajal and lip balm.”

My best beauty advice…
“The best remedy for a glowing face is the proper intake of water. I would suggest that one should at least drink 2-3 litres of water everyday. It cleanses the system from within and this definitely reflects on your skin. Another very important thing especially for actors is to always remember to remove their make-up before going to bed. The chemicals in the cosmetics ruin the skin eventually. Washing your face regularly with clean water or rose water also leaves you with extremely vibrant skin.”

My most cherished diya tip…
“I really cherish my mom’s tips for hair and skin. For skin, she has ensured that I have become particular about cleansing and using packs made of natural ingredients like milk, honey, papaya and banana to get that long-lasting glow. For hair, she has advised me to regularly oil my hair with coconut oil and give it hot oil treatment to deeply nourish it. This has really helped me in maintain my hectic work schedules.”

My vanity bag essentials…
“I can’t live without a sunscreen and cleanser for my skin and Parachute Jasmine Hair Oil for my hair.”

My hair care routine…
“My shampoos and conditioners have always changed but one thing tat never changes in my hair oil. I believe that only healthy hair will remain beautiful over time and coconut oil provides the necessary nourishment to keep it healthy and shiny. It also protects it from external damage., which is important for my hair as it gets exposed to so many styling and grooming products. I generally get a nice champi with coconut oil before shampooing. This really revives my hair’s bounce and shine and turns my bad hair day into a happy hair day!”

My diet basics…
“Eating right and healthy is a very important pat of my wellness routine. I make sure I have a fruit or two every day for my share of antioxidants, and drink 2-3 litres of water to flush out the toxins. For my fitness regime, I do weight training four days a week to tone my body. Yoga has been a recent addition to my workout as it really rejuvenates my mind and gives my skin that inner glow. Proper rest is also important for the body to recuperate and let the results show.”

My stress-buster…
“I have always had such a stressful schedule that I really appreciate the simple, relaxed things in life like gossiping with my mom while she gives me a nice oil champi or lunching with my girlfriends.”

My Biggest weakness:
“My mother’s cooking.”
“I recently went to Ananda in the Himalayas, and I had a beautiful experience. The surroundings, massages, etc. were so tranquil and rejuvenating. I also experienced Yoga for the first time at Ananda, after which I’ve taken it up very seriously now.”
