Chat­ting up Eve­lyn Sharma

Hair - - Advertorial -

How did you get your first break?

I came to In­dia as a model and worked a lot in TV com­mer­cials and ad cam­paigns. I think that helped a great deal in get­ting my first break. Pro­duc­ers and di­rec­tors started call­ing me for movie au­di­tions and so I gave Bol­ly­wood a shot. And it has all worked out bet­ter than I ever imag­ined!

How were you in your grow­ing up years?

I grew up in a sim­ple way in a small town in Ger­many. My mother loved to go for hikes and walks through the forests, so I am used to trekking a lot. The Ger­man land­scape is so beau­ti­ful and unique! I think there is noth­ing like a golden au­tumn in Ger­many — the leaves turn red and or­ange, and when the golden sun shines, it looks like the trees are on fire.

What do you like the most about Hindi film in­dus­try?

The Hindi film in­dus­try, I hear, is the big­gest film in­dus­try in the world, which re­ally makes me proud to be a part of it. And, of course, I like Bol­ly­wood and its share of song and dance.

What hair­care regime do you fol­low?

Be­ing an ac­tor, I get my hair done al­most ev­ery day, caus­ing a lot of dam­age. I have to use hair sprays, curl­ing irons and what not! I have fig­ured out that the most im­por­tant things are a good sham­poo and con­di­tioner from a pro­fes­sional brand. Also, I oil my hair twice or thrice a week with a mix of cas­tor oil and aloe vera gel — it works won­ders to re­hy­drate the hair and washes out eas­ily. Drink­ing lots of wa­ter is the se­cret to great hair and skin.

Tell us some­thing about your skin­care rou­tine.

I re­li­giously go through the same pro­ce­dure ev­ery morn­ing and night — a mild make-up re­mover, face wash, a scrub ev­ery al­ter­nate day, a toner and fi­nally a good mois­turiser with SPF for the day. Sun­screens are beauty es­sen­tials; even my foun­da­tion has SPF. Scrub­bing is the only way to re­new your skin cells nat­u­rally and re­move black heads eas­ily. Above all, main­tain a healthy diet and drink lots of wa­ter as beauty is best achieved in­side out.

How of­ten do you in­dulge in spa treat­ments?

Oh I’m to­tally ad­dicted to spas! I would go ev­ery day if I had the time. I think it’s the one way to re­lax and en­joy a bit of lux­ury and come out all glow­ing. I try to get a hair treat­ment done at least once a month, get my reg­u­lar mani-pedis and re­lax­ing mas­sages. I get a foot mas­sage al­most ev­ery time I go to the air­port.

How do you un­wind af­ter a tir­ing day?

I wear my pa­ja­mas, drink tea, watch movies, and just go sleep cud­dling my cat Luii. Just like my cat, I love to sleep.

Fi­nally, a beauty se­cret you would love to share…

Argan oil! Just rub two-three drops onto your face af­ter a scrub. It works magic on your skin!
