“I don’t get unduly worried about things not going the way they ought to. I don’t get stressed about my weight. I don’t believe in keeping a daily calorie count. I think the key to looking good lies within you. If you are at peace with yourself, the glow is bound to show,” adds Prachi.

Prachi is particular about the way she starts her day. She adds, “There are certain things I never compromise with in my day-to-day life. For instance, the first thing in the morning, I have to have a glass of lukewarm water with honey.” This young actress belongs to the old school of thoughts and prefers homemade remedies to deal with skin problems.

“My skin is allergic to heavy make-up. So I usually use an oxygen cream. I’m not very fond of cosmetics. I believe in using time-tested homemade remedies and use a lot of aloe vera and turmeric on my face. Of course, I also drink at least 3-4 litres of water a day. Coconut water is very good for body and skin.”

A firm believer of healthy lifestyle, Prachi believes in the philosophy of eating healthy to stay beautiful. She includes a variety of fresh vegetables in her meal and avoids junk food. So what’s her fitness


? “I dance to stay fit. That includes everything, from Indian classical form to Western style dance. If there’s one thing I stick to, it is yoga. I religiously practice yoga every morning,” adds Prachi.
