Miss Universe winner (2000) and actor Lara Dutta Bhupathi has turned entrepreneur. She recently launched of her own beauty brand, and is advocating better skincare for women.

She says most women are more willing to spend their hard-earned money on an array of make-up products, rather than on one that betters their skin from within. “Make-up can do wonders, but if its canvas is not healthy to begin with, then you won’t be able to correct much,” Lara told IANS in a telephonic interview.

The former beauty queen reveals that her own makeup requirements have only simplified with age.

“I use a lot less makeup than I did. I want to stop loading my skin with products just because they are out in the market. My skincare is increased and my makeup has gone down. The problem is we are constantly bombarded with miracle products which we think are going to change our lives for the better,” says the actor-turned-entrepreneur.

According to Lara, one should start taking care of their skin in one’s 20s.

“What ages Indian skin the quickest is pollution in the air, stress, the sunlight we’re exposed to. One maybe using a great cream made in America, but the American skin is entirely different. We take youth for granted. You don’t see fine lines on your face, so you don’t really invest in a consistent skincare routine,” she says.

‘Arias’ skincare range has been launched keeping in mind the dermatological needs of the Indians and includes facial toners, face washes and masks, serums, and day and night creams for the Indian skin. The products are paraben and sulphate-free and do not use animal products.

For the 41-year-old actor, having a night-time routine is the key to skincare, since the body repairs itself the most during sleep.

“Taking gentle, good care of your skin should be a habit, like drinking tea in the morning, that you follow up for life,” explains Lara.

“We shouldn’t beat ourselves up about the fact that we want to look good. I also feel that we can’t keep constantly hiding behind the mask. Women say ‘I’m not going to be loved or respected or given my due unless I look a certain way, I am a certain size, I have a certain amount of accomplishments under my belt, we never stop beating ourselves up about it. Women need to be comfortable in their own skin. They need to be unafraid, they need to look into the mirror and love themselves,” she adds. (IANS)

While scrolling through your Instagram feed you must have come across the new trend of no-makeup-makeup look. But does this “no make-up” look can cause an equal amount of damage to their skin as compared to the regular makeup.

The answer to this question is two fold, says Dr Nirupama Parwanda, Dermatologist and founder of Zolie Skin Clinic.

The first part is a much expected answer, which is yes. There are several reasons why people love make-up and want to do it every day. From giving your confidence a little boost to helping you enhance your best features, make-up has always been your best buddy, Parwanda notes.

However, there can be many reasons why this best buddy shouldn’t be slathered on your face regularly. We all are aware of the side effects of applying heavy make-up regularly but it is important to know that the “no-makeup-makeup look” is also damaging your skin.

The reason for this is very basic, just because people around you cannot see the multiple layers of makeup doesn’t mean there isn’t any.

If you pay attention to these beauty tutorials, you’ll find beauty gurus explain the reason why this “no-makeup-makeup look” was created. The main purpose behind this look was to look effortlessly flawless every day for the rest of your life.

Interestingly, the reason this look was appreciated by so many people around the world was because the main aim was to enhance and not a cover-up. And the make-up tips were suitable for people with different skin types and shades.

Nevertheless, there was a catch, the people didn’t see how most of the experts were using the same number of beauty products to achieve the flawless end results.

Even though the final look seemed natural no one could deny the number of layers that were caked to achieve that look. This exposed your skin to threats like acne breakouts, dry skin, allergies, dark spots and wrinkles, nothing indifferent from regular makeup, Parwanda points out.

However, the second part of the answer will tell you why “no-makeup-makeup” look can be your best bet if you cannot let go of your daily habit of doing make-up, she says.

If you are wise enough to choose good quality products that contain fewer chemicals and have certain skin benefits in them then “no-makeup-makeup” isn’t half as disastrous as regular make-up for your skin.

Various products in the market have been crafted for regular use and while these products might not contain everything your skin would love it is certainly a good option.

Look for products with beneficial ingredients like tea tree, vitamin C, retinol etc. so that your skin can attain certain benefits from your make-up, suggests Parwanda.

Pro tip: Always have a good skin routine where you remove make-up as soon as you enter your home. Always cleanse, tone and moisturize your skin every night before you call it a day. (IANS)
