Cosmo: What is the one beauty rule you always follow?

Kareena: It's good to moisturise your skin. This is probably the only skin ritual I follow, and is really quite easy too. Since my work life demands a lot of travelling, my skin can get very dry, so a simple moisturiser does the trick.

C: Beauty wise, how often do you pamper yourself?

K: I totally recommend visiting a salon regularly. The pampering makes you feel like a princess.

C: We're all about contouring this season. Are you also a fan?

K: Well, I think contouring is great if you want to go completely glamorous with your make-up. When you have a face like mine with a sharp jawline and high cheek bones, it just accentuates those features and adds that extra oomph.

C: Everyone has a signature look. So, if you had just two minutes, what would be your go-to look?

K: I swear by the classics-and there's nothing more classic than a pair of jeans and a shirt, or a simple LBD with just black kohl for make-up. That's my secret to always getting ready before Saif does!

C: Do you ever sleep with your make-up on? And what's your remedy for the day-after? (If you do sleep with it on, that is.)

K: You should, ideally, never let that happen. But I think I've done it a couple of times. It usually happens when I'm really tired after a shoot. The next day, I just wipe it off! It also helps that I use Johnson's Baby Oil on my skin.

C: What are your thoughts on using oil?

K: It's lovely! I'm all for Parachute Advanced Hot Oil these days. It's part of my weekly routine and massaging with the same makes my scalp feel lighter!

C: There's all this talk that eating healthy affects your skin...

K: It makes all the difference, there is no way out of that one. No amount of exercise is going to help what you're putting into your body. A moment on the lips can be a lifetime on the hips-that's for sure!

C: What about your hair? Are you big on experimenting with it?

K: I experiment a lot with my hair, actually. Especially for red carpet events or an important party. That's when I try out multiple styles-especially updos (I love those)! It's amazing how you can end up looking so different with a new hairstyle.

C: Your skin's flawless, what's your secret?

K: Two words: coconut water. Having a glass once a day is all you need-not to mention it's easy on the pocket! I think glowing skin at that price is totally worth it.

1. Slough away dead cells to reveal softer, more luminous skin. Even if you already use a physical exfoliator (a formula boasting scrubbing beads to buff your complexion), adding a chemical exfoliator to your regimen will make a big difference in the look and feel of your skin. Once a week (or twice, depending on how sensitive your skin is), skip using your usual serum or moisturizer, and replace it with a leave-on chemical exfoliator, like Le Weekend De Chanel Weekly Renewing Face Care, which uses ingredients like glycolic acid to exfoliate your skin deeply, cleansing your pores of dirt, oil, bacteria, and debris that can lead to breakouts, and rose water to help calm the skin as the exfoliator does its work. Just remember to apply sunscreen immediately afterward, since it will make your skin sensitive to the sun's rays.
