The fresh-faced actor with a royal lineage shares her skincare and beauty secrets

Being beautiful
Happy girls are the prettiest. Beauty is not about effort. It is about having an open, guileless face and clean, clear skin. Good health, both in body and in mind, shows on your skin!

Morning fix
Once I’m out of the shower, I barely take any time. I just make sure that my eyebrows are in place. If I am heading out, I use Avon’s Big & Daring mascara and add some colour to my cheeks with their Hibiscus blush.

Night companion
I don’t use make-up when I’m not shooting, but when I do, I remove it with a water-based cleanser. I also use a gentle soap-free face wash. I make sure that I apply a moisturiser to keep my skin hydrated.

Red-carpet essentials
My personal favourite look includes bold lips and ‘barely there’ make-up. Avon’s Ruby Shock Bold Lipstick works best. If I’m doing nude lips then I like to add a liner, neutral brown eyeshadow and a swipe of mascara to well-defined brows to complete the look.

Mom’s advice
As a child, I was not very exposed to beauty products. My mother kept it very natural for me. I still prefer skincare products with natural ingredients.

DIY remedy
When your skin feels oily: mix 1/4 teaspoon of orange peel (dried and powdered), or freshly grated turmeric, and 1 teaspoon of besan and enough home-made yoghurt to make a paste. If your skin feels dry: mix 2 teaspoons of ground oats with 1/2 teaspoon of honey and enough milk to make a paste and apply.

Heaven scent
I love floral fragrances that linger.

Go-to essentials
I prefer a natural, dewy fresh look. So, just a dab of pink on the lips and cheeks is all that I need.

Pampering ritual
I wish I could do it more often — wash my face with raw milk! What better way to indulge your skin?

Make-up nostalgia
People earlier always said that I looked better in person than in event photographs and on screen. So I would wonder if there was something wrong with my make-up!
