Your beauty regime?
I wash my face with Clinic DRX. My skin is oily and this face wash suits me best.

Must do beauty ritual before leaving home?
I never leave home without applying a light base sunscreen.

Home beauty tip?
A mixture of sandalwood powder and rose water works wonders. I apply this pack atleast once a week. It helps cool down the skin after exposure to sunlight.

A make-up tip?
Too much liner and eye make-up makes you look older. One should use a heavy mascara with gloss instead.

Earthy tones or vibrant colours?
Earthy tones enhanced with a good vibrant blush and lipstick.

A strict no-no?
Using heavy make-up on the eyes and lips at the same time is a bad idea.

Parlour visits are for..
Hair. I love to pamper my tresses at a hair spa.

Your beauty wish-list?
To be able to sleep more – it helps the skin glow.

Your best feature?
My hair.

You pamper it with?
I massage it twice a week with aroma oils and even use leave-in hair products.

Beauty icon?
Catherine Zeta Jones

A brand you love?
There are two, Yves Saint Laurent and Chanel.

Can't stay without?
Lip balm

Beauty quick fix?
I rub cucumber slices and ice cubes on my face. It's a great wake me up ritual.

Bedtime ritual?
I cleanse my skin with a make-up and eye make-up remover. I follow it with an overnight cream and an under eye cream.

How do you tackle a bad hair day?
After shampooing, I use a serum and a leave-in conditioner. It makes the hair soft and easier to manage.

The secret to good lips?
A mix of lip gloss with drops of lip plumper. Age gracefully or.. No or.. I want to age gracefully.
