“My back pack, comfortable boot cuts jeans, PJ’s and loose trousers are a must for a comfortable journey. Sun glasses are my obsession so they are with me wherever I go. A portable charger, a comfortable yet stylish pair of sneakers, and a good book or playlist are also essential.”
Miroir Des Voluptes by Thierry Mugler, Armani SI and Emilio Pucci are some of my favourites.
“I avoid styling my hair with heated tools as much as possible; in fact, I don’t style my hair at all. Limit your time in the sun and eat the right food (a diet rich in iron, zinc and protein). Keep your hair clean and nourish your scalp with essential oils, such as coconut, avocado, almond, caster and olive oil. I use L’Oréal Paris Ever Strong Reconstruct Shampoo which is great for dry hair”.
“I am gifted with good skin so I keep it simple and use Lancôme Creme Radiance Clarifying Cleanser as I believe a good cleanser can take away all the impurities. Because we shoot in harsh weather, I swear by sun screen. My favourite is Neutrogena Pure & Free Liquid Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 50. My skin also tends to get dry so I moisturise with Neutrogena Hydro Boost Gel-Cream which suits my skin and keeps it supple and hydrated”.
Tips & Tricks
“The best tip I can give is to workout! I exercise daily, even if it’s for 15 minutes a day, I never skip it. I have three cups of green or black tea a day — it helps prevent skin cancer and the breakdown of collagen, the main cause of wrinkles. I drink more water and skip soft drinks — sodium in soft drinks makes my eyes puffy so I absolutely avoid that. Cut on the sweet stuff”.
