Ka­jol is one Bol­ly­wood mom who knows how to add a youth­ful zing to her per­sona ev­ery time she steps out. We catch up with the ac­tress at the Olay To­tal Ef­fects’ event in Mum­bai, to know more about what she does to keep look­ing so gor­geous all the time…

You look the same; you haven’t changed at all… I haven’t changed. But yes, my way of look­ing at things has... My be­lief about my­self has changed. Today, I be­lieve that I am beau­ti­ful, but it took me a long time to be­lieve that. I also think I am a bet­ter per­son today.

On a se­ri­ous note, what is the se­cret be­hind that flaw­less skin and age­less looks? It feels good when peo­ple com­ple­ment me say­ing I look fab­u­lous! I am ge­net­i­cally blessed! When I was young, I re­mem­ber my mother sit­ting at her dress­ing ta­ble ap­ply­ing makeup, wear­ing my grand­mother’s chif­fon sari; she used to do it beau­ti­fully like a piece of art. I used to watch her but I was never fond of makeup. I hated it. Both my mother and my grand­mother have been stun­ning, beau­ti­ful, ac­tive and won­der­ful women. I was in my late 20s when I looked at my­self and said, ‘Damn! I need to do some­thing for my skin’. I never thought of ag­ing then. I went to a der­ma­tol­o­gist, who rec­om­mended Olay to me way back then. So I started us­ing Olay much be­fore I stood for the brand and spoke about it. And since then, I am con­tin­u­ously us­ing it. As for my skin­care rou­tine, it’s sim­ple. I wash my face, mois­tur­ize it and use a sun block. I also drink a lot of wa­ter, and I make sure I re­move my makeup be­fore I sleep, re­gard­less of how tired I am. Af­ter which, I ap­ply my night cream, and this I fol­low re­li­giously. I wish I had known about sun block when I was 16. I started us­ing it when I was 25, and that’s the only re­gret I have.

“Today, I be­lieve that I am beau­ti­ful, but it took me a long time to be­lieve that. I also think I am a bet­ter per­son today.”
