Thrilled about her strong role in her first international film, Neetu Chandra is ensuring that she takes care of herself. The athletic actor makes sure that she works out diligently. Having just learned how to swim after a unit member urged her to give it a try, Neetu calls herself a water baby now.

This beauty loves makeup. “It depends on where I am going, but normally I like to be presentable,” she says. “Otherwise, I am fine with using just sunscreen and a lip balm. I began using makeup when I became an actor. This profession has taught me a lot.”

Neetu's beauty mantra:

I wash my face in the morning with besan powder, then use a toning spray with a sunscreen. If I have applied makeup during the day, I remove it completely before I sleep. I cleanse my face, use a toning spray with a night cream and an under eye cream. A full body moisturiser is a must too.

Essentials for me are sunscreen, a powder compact, a lip balm, mascara and a little cream blush.

I drink five litres of water a day and use a homemade face pack twice a week. I also use a scrub once a week, use sunscreen and body moisturiser every day.

Keep your makeup minimal. Lip balms could be used as eye shadow, and blush could be used to add a little colour to your lip balm.
