When we think happy, glowing skin, the first person that comes to mind is Genelia D’Souza. Everyone’s favourite girl-next-door-turned-hot-mommy is the most adorable face on the internet these days. Everything from her pregnancy to her beautiful newborn is followed by the shutterbugs.
What makes her a favourite though? Her dazzling smile and clear complexion of course. Here, Genelia reveals how she stays flawless even under the unforgiving paparazzi flashlights… in 5 easy steps.
1. Nothing Stays On For Too Long
Genelia loves her skin to be squeaky clean and without makeup (with great skin like that, who wouldn’t?) on most days. She only uses kajal and lip balm on days she’s chillin’ like a boss. The only time she calls in her makeup crew is when she’s shooting, needs to make appearances on the red carpet and needs to look her glam best for a special occasions. The rest of the time, she doesn’t allow cosmetic products anywhere near her skin.
2. Dealing With Daytime Madness
A regular day in the life of an actor can be quite chaotic and Genelia manages not only her schedule but also that of her child’s. Even with all the stress she takes on on a daily basis she manages to make a little time for the most handy skincare item in her bag - Olay Total Effects 7 In One Anti-Ageing Day Cream SPF 15. It not only keeps her skin supple through the day, it also has the dual benefits of SPF which keep her skin protected from the sun.
3. Making The Most Of The Little Things
According to studies, the number one cause of bad skin is stress. With so much going on in our lives, we forget to take a step back and relax. Genelia does! She works out every morning and takes deep breaths every time she is stressed out. She also makes sure she appreciates the little things that bring her joy in life. The first step to good skin is being happy and this girl sure knows how to!
4. Sticking To The Basics
This gorgeous actor believes it is pertinent to stick to the simple things in life - cleansing, moisturising and toning. She swears by this night time routine to wake up to bouncy, radiant and more youthful skin. Even her pregnancy did not hamper with her routine as she’d follow it everyday. No wonder she shone all through the pregnancy and after. Genelia uses Olay Total Effects 7 In One Foaming Cleanser and follows up with a toner. She finishes her routine with the Olay Total Effects 7 In One Anti-Ageing Night Cream which not only moisturises her skin but also gives her an unbelievably firmer appearance in the morning.
5. Aqua Power
As much as it has been reiterated over and over again, drinking water can do wonders for your skin. It is easy to get caught up in the bustle of life and forget essential things like hydration but drinking at least 8 glasses of water a day is great for your skin’s health. So give your skin the boost of moisture it needs and pick up that glass of water now!
