Bringing her black case out of her closet and into the vanity bag, Alia says she preps her skin before her hair and makeup routine. Let’s check out her easy-to-do skincare routine!
Alia uses a mist to dampen her face and makes an outward rolling motion with a roller for a few minutes to reduce water retention and enhance circulation. Not only it benefits the skin but feels great.
Importance: Even studies have proved that massage rollers work wonders for your skin. How? A study published in Science Daily found that facial massaging using a roller can increase skin blood flow and widen blood vessels giving long-lasting benefits to your skin.
Now comes the eyes! She takes a tad bit of cream on her fingers and applies it under her eyes to get rid of dark circles and dryness.
Importance: For those who are new to skincare, you must know that the skin around your eyes is more fragile and prone to dryness and fatigue, which in turn would lead to puffiness and dark circles. However, applying eye cream regularly can address these issues.
While eye cream is the holy grail to get rid of under-eye problems, Alia can’t stop herself from gushing over the skincare ingredient niacinamide. She says niacinamide helps with a lot of skin problems. It “gets rid of fine lines, protects from pollution and hydrates skin”. Giving a quick tip to her fans, Alia applies whatever she applies on her face, she also treats her neck and hands to the same product.
Importance: Niacinamide is a derivative of vitamin B3, which is called niacin. It can work wonders for your skin, especially if you have acne. It also hydrates the skin, binds moisture to the skin, clears blemishes and prevents wrinkles. Experts recommend newbies start using niacinamide with a 5 per cent concentration.
Telling fans that this next step can be skipped if you want to, Alia applies caffeine drops to help decrease puffiness under the eyes.
Importance: As you age, the tissues around your eyes, including the muscles supporting your eyelids, weaken this can lead to puffiness and fine lines. Caffeine can help you get rid of baggy under your eyes.
Applying moisturiser is an important part of Alia Bhatt’s skincare routine. Moisturiser, she claims, aids hydration in all conditions and temperatures. “Just like you drink water, your skin also needs to drink water”, advises Alia.
Importance: Moisturizing is a crucial step in maintaining the health of your skin’s cells and protecting it from irritation. People who moisturize their skin at a young age are much more likely to have beautiful skin when they get older.
She finishes off her skincare routine with sunscreen. According to the actress, “I can’t explain how important sunscreen is. Even if you go near a window, you need sunscreen. I’m putting sunscreen on before my makeup.”
Importance: SPF protects your skin from the sun’s harmful UV rays, reducing your chances of painful sunburns, skin cancer, and early indications of ageing like dark spots and wrinkles.
