That she is fun, open, and willing to share her beauty secrets only makes us love her more. So here is wishing her a very Happy Birthday!
Given your hectic schedule, how do you manage to keep your skin this flawless?
J: Despite my busy schedule, I always ensure that I keep a healthy balanced diet with proper fitness regime. For my skincare, my favourite brand The Body Shop always helps me out.
You are The Body Shop’s brand ambassador, what are some of its products that really tick your boxes?
J: I have grown up with The Body Shop’s products and swear by them. I’m addicted to Tea Tree Oil to keep my blemishes at bay; the Drops of Youth serum to give my skin a smoother, fresher and healthier look; the Rainforest Coconut Hair Oil, to provide my hair the perfect overnight nourishment resulting in strong, soft, shiny and healthy scalp.
The Body Shop favourites…
J: Oh, I love them all, but if I have to choose , my favourite will be the Fuji Green Tea body sorbet and Drops of Youth™ Bouncy Sleeping Mask, it’s enriched with Edelweiss stem cells which helps in skin renewal. With every use, this amazing mask gives me a healthier bouncier happy skin.
What do you carry in your bag?
J: You will always find The Body Shop Fuji Green Tea body sorbet in my bag. It smells so fresh and instant mood lifter.
I also carry The Body Shop Tea Tree Oil. This powerful oil helps keep my blemishes at bay.
I’m a die hard fan of The Body Shop lip butters and always carry them with me. I love using the Coconut lip butter, they are extremely soft and buttery and provide my lips the instant hydration.
A must have for reviving dull skin is The Body Shop Vitamin C Energizing Face Spritz, it’s a boon for my skin specially in summers as its very hydrating. I carry it with me at all times.
I also have with me at all times The Body Shop Coconut Hand Sanitizer.
What according to you is an absolute beauty no-no?
J: Sleeping with make-up on. It’s one of the biggest disservices you can do to your skin.
Your beauty elixir and make-up favourite…
J: I’m obsessed with blushes and absolute favourite is The Body Shop All in One Blush; currently I love applying the shade Ginger and Guava. This blush is very smooth and has great staying power so I absolutely adore it.
