Vrinda Dawda stole the hearts of the In­dian au­di­ence with her per­for­mance in Dil Dostii Dance. When it comes to her hair and skin­care regime, the young and beau­ti­ful ac­tress be­lieves in sim­ple tips and prac­tices.

Who is the most beau­ti­ful per­son you’ve seen or met in your life?

The most beau­ti­ful thing in my life is my fam­ily! Will and al­ways be! Apart from them, it has to be Amar Gowda, a very close friend from the cast of my pre­vi­ous show, Dil Dostii Dance.

What’s your skin­care regime like?

My skin is very sen­si­tive and I need to take care of it reg­u­larly. I fol­low the ba­sics, which is mois­tur­is­ing my skin ev­ery day, go­ing for skin clean-ups ev­ery week, ap­ply­ing rose wa­ter on my skin ev­ery night and drink­ing lots of wa­ter and co­conut wa­ter.

How do you take care of your hair?

I make it a point to wash my hair ev­ery two days. I only use prod­ucts by Wella Pro­fes­sion­als — that’s one brand that suits my hair. I keep my hair tied up to es­cape dust and grime when it’s not nec­es­sary to leave it loose. I also oil my hair ev­ery week with al­mond oil.

Any hair­care or skin­care tips handed down to you by your grand­mother or mother?

There are no such tips that I can think of. I just al­ways try and use chemical-free prod­ucts, which is be­com­ing a bit tough these days. I in­dulge in home­made face packs once in a while.

Which are your favourite spa and sa­lon des­ti­na­tions?

I am a mem­ber of En­rich Sa­lons, so that’s the chain I visit fre­quently for ev­ery­thing. I don’t have a favourite spa as such, but love try­ing out new places ev­ery now and then.

What are your favourite skin­care and make-up prod­ucts?

I usu­ally use prod­ucts by Kry­olan and M.A.C. I just love these brands.

What make-up prod­ucts will one al­ways find in your bag?

You will al­ways find a kohl pen­cil and com­pact from M.A.C, lip­stick and blush from Colorbar, May­belline mas­cara, and Vic­to­ria’s Se­cret lip balm.

What’s the big­gest skin­care mis­take you’ve ever made?

As I said, my skin is very sen­si­tive and face wipes, cold wipes and peels don’t suit me. As a teenager, I once ended up try­ing or­ange peels on my face, and my skin started burn­ing very badly.

What’s your fit­ness regime?

Eat­ing healthy, lots of ex­er­cise and reg­u­lar work­outs keep me fit. Get­ting ad­e­quate amount of sleep and drink­ing lots of wa­ter also help.

What are your favourite cuisines? On a cheat day, what do you love eat­ing?

I love ev­ery­thing made at home, in­clud­ing all my Gu­jarati del­i­ca­cies. On a cheat day, I would def­i­nitely gorge my­self on pani puris. Given a chance and choice, I can eat it all the time!

What’s the best com­pli­ment you’ve ever re­ceived?

Right from my school days, I have al­ways been told that I have a re­ally nice smile. These days I have also been get­ting a lot of com­pli­ments for my hair.

Ca­reer-wise, what’s next? What’s your dream role?

I have been au­di­tion­ing for a cou­ple of shows, but can’t re­veal any­thing right now. I would love to work in a com­edy show. I have played pos­i­tive and neg­a­tive roles, and some­thing fun is what I am look­ing for right now.
