With the frost of winter rapidly closing in, Pakistan will soon see a rise not only in the amount of seasonal activities, but also the tones of wedding festivities scheduled for the last month of the year. At such a time, no one is a bigger enemy than the dry and harsh environment that winter brings. So, how does one leave the season unscathed? Who better to ask than our glamourous divas of the industry!
From oils to moisturizers, Instep reveals some go-to winter beauty essentials from these flawless stars.
Television’s favourite girl-next-door, Maya Ali has proven that not only is she an amazing actress but also has flawless skin to go ga-ga over. After all, not anyone can just become the Lux girl.
According to the actress, her winter go-to products are simple and handy.
“There is no specific regime I follow, but I always carry and use lip balm and hand moisturiser in winters,” Maya reveals.
Although the winter months are all about nurturing skin, Nausheen also believes in hydrating your body along with it as well.
“I use Physiogel hypoallergenic products, deep cleansing my skin, and I drink at least 4-5 litres of water every day,” she reveals.
Glamour comes naturally for this talented actress, and it shows. Whether it’s her starry looks or her charming personality courtesy grandmother, Sabiha Khanum, Sarish Khan is one actor to look out for.
However, even the most glamourous have their beauty secrets, and now we know hers.“One item I love using in the winter is the La Mer Renewal Oil,”Sarish said. “It’s perfect for a daily routine all year round but especially beneficial in the winter because of the added hydration and glow it gives to your skin.”
That’s not all; she even has a great tip to give away.
“Use it as a base under your moisturizer or before bed to give your skin the extra boost in the winter because ‘Baby it’s cold outside.’”
There’s no doubt that she’s one of the biggest names in the industry at the moment. Whether it’s her back-to-back hits at the box office or her singing career, Mehwish Hayat is soaring high right now! So, how does this diva keep herself perfect to a tee every moment? Here’s the secret.
“Taking care of yourself is key in this industry,” Mehwish said. “To achieve balance, you need a combination of good nutrition, exercise and skin care products. I’ve recently started using and loving La Mer moisturizer. But I’m going to have to say that the best product for beating winter dryness is Vaseline. I’ve used it ever since I was a child.”
The actress also tips to stay hydrated throughout the season, and we can’t help but agree wholeheartedly.
If not on the runway, you’ll see Frieha Altaf in front of it giving directions to a plethora of models as they sashay down. She’s the brains behind tons of media events in the city, and although going through the same tiring schedule everyday, she manages to look like a million bucks always.
Her secret? A product available in all households of course!
“Winter and dry skin go hand in hand. Nivea body cream on my entire body constantly after showers and bath is what I do,” Frieha claims. “In fact, it’s on my bedside table and my lounge, so I’m constantly lathering my skin.”
