Skincare Tips For The Festive Season By Sara Ali Khan
The wedding and festive season is just around the corner and all the stress of last-minute planning and preparations can take a toll on your skin. With so much focus on the perfect dress or the latest makeup trend, it is easy to forget about skincare. But now is the right time to pamper your skin for that lit-from-within natural glow!
We got youth icon, Sara Ali Khan to share some of her skincare tips with us to help us fully enjoy the upcoming festivities without having to worry about our skin. Busy hustling between shoots and script sessions, these are some of Sara Ali Khan’s tips for achieving glowing skin through all the craziness of a festive season.
1. Hydration All The Way
Always make sure to keep your body and skin hydrated. Drink enough water and moisturise your skin well. Sara enjoys putting on a serum sheet mask to quickly hydrate her skin while she is shifting gears from hectic shoots and early morning rehearsals to late-night card parties with her friends. And her favourite sheet masks are ones from Garnier’s new Serum Sheet Masks range. With so many variants to choose from - from lemon and pomegranate to grape seed and charcoal, she finds a sheet mask to suit her every need. Garnier Serum Sheet Masks are super hydrating and give you super glowing skin in just 15 minutes, perfect for a girl who is always on the go.
2. Exercise, Not Just To Drop A Size
The healthiest way to detox your skin is to sweat it out. It helps clear your skin from all the toxins that clog your pores. No matter how caught up Sara is with work or family commitments, she always includes at least 30 minutes of workout in her routine.
3. Eat Well And Eat Right
Even though she enjoys the occasional besan laddoos, pedas, and barfis during festivals and celebrations, she makes sure to eat them only in moderation. It is important to check on portions and eat healthy to ensure acne and dullness don’t wear you down during these celebrations. A healthy diet is the key to glowing skin.
4. Less Is More
Sara strongly believes in the mantra that beauty lies in minimalism. Keep it simple, subtle, and elegant and you will rock every function.
5. Get Some Me-Time
The festive season can get chaotic so Sara recommends grabbing some me-time - not just for your mind and body, but also for your skin. She likes to kick back, relax, put on a Garnier Serum Sheet Mask, and chill! Her favourite is the Hydra Bomb Green Tea Serum Mask by Garnier. This sheet mask is specially formulated for oily and acne-prone skin and the green tea extracts in the sheet mask help purify your skin and control oiliness.
6. Get That Beauty Sleep
Regardless of how busy Sara’s schedule is, she does not compromise on her sleep. 8 hours of sleep is ideal but try to get at least 6 hours of shut-eye during the festive madness. But no matter how late it is, do not forget to take off your makeup before going to bed. Residual makeup can cause your skin to break out. She uses the Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water to take off all her makeup and get a perfectly clean face before going to bed.
So here you have it, Sara Ali Khan’s secrets and the easy clear skin tips that she follows during the wedding and festive season to keep her skin healthy and fresh.
