It’s that time of the year when the festive season is upon us once again. Women are gearing up to flaunt their gorgeous selves in beautiful traditional outfits, jewellery to match and not to forget, the picture-perfect make-up for the perfect selfie. In a recent interview when asked about festive season, Kalki said, “I absolutely love the festive season and its spirit. It has its own charm of celebration, bringing people together, spreading joy and happiness. During this time, I thoroughly enjoy dressing up in traditional and semi-traditional attire paired with some lovely antique & ethnic jewellery. However, when it comes to make-up, I prefer keeping it natural with just a dark kajal, mascara and a red lipstick.”
For all the ladies to flaunt in those traditional outfits here’s a quick beauty and skincare guide by Kalki to look gorgeous through the season making your skin look extra special;
Cleansing is crucial
To experience that glowing and flawless skin, it is important to keep cleanse your face. Hence, one must invest in a good face cleanser. Instead of soap use a face wash, that suits your skin which can be gel or foam based. I use a cleanser atleast thrice a day to get rid of all the dirt and dust particles over the skin specially at night.
Exfoliation is key
To get festive ready, don’t waste time at parlor to get rid of unwanted hair. It’s best to stay away from harmful creams and painful waxing sessions as these methods tend to cause rashes and damage skin in the long run. I prefer shaving as it is a painless affair and helps remove dead skin layer on the go as compared to other hair removal methods. I usually shave after a shower and prefer using a 2-in-1 razor that comes with in-build gel bars and body butters as it helps to retain body moisture, while providing one-stroke smoothness.
Do not forget to hydrate your body
To look gorgeous throughout the festive season, make sure to up your intake of liquids like water, coconut water etc. to keep yourself hydrated. Every morning, I drink 7-8 glasses of water to keep my skin feeling fresh and supple. As an actor & performer, I need take good care of my skin
Mental rejuvenation is necessary
There’s a reason they call it beauty sleep! Getting a full 8-9 hours of sleep is one of the best things you can do for your skin before your celebrations. During your sleep cycle, your body, especially your skin, repairs and rejuvenates itself, to enjoy the celebrations with more fun and festive fervour.
Avoid exposure to sun
Though shopping and celebrations are favourite part of festive season, prefer to avoid too much direct exposure to sunlight. The strong UV rays might damage your skin texture, making it look dull and gloomy. When stepping out, always apply a sunscreen to protect your skin from the harmful UV rays.
