The brand ambassador for the new CLEAR shampoo, Ileana Dcruz, better known for her award winning performance in Barfi, reveals her style fundas.
I Don’t Overdo It
I like to keep my skin natural as healthy as possible. I do not wear makeup at all on normal days. There is no particular skin care regime that I follow either. All I do is try to keep my skin as clean as possible and not overdo the entire process.
Use the Right Shampoo for Your Hair
I think that what you are is what you eat. I try and eat as healthy as possible. My diet includes a lot of proteins. You will find lots of fish and vegetables in my diet. Also I make it a point to drink a lot of water. I try not to stress out too much.
Using the right shampoo and choosing one that suits your hair type is very important. I have not really tried any of the home made masks of any sort as I think that it can get really messy. When you can get everything in a bottle and off the shelf, there is no need for home masks.
I Like Eating Whatever I Want
I am the kind of person who likes to eat whatever I want but I realise that I am not getting any younger and I am 26 so I have to be a little careful with what I eat. I have been on a particular diet now for about a while due to a particular role that I am doing, a very healthy diet that involves lots of proteins. I’ve tried to consume as little sugar as possible and it really makes a difference. Your skin feels better and you feel good about yourself. I don’t really have a sweet tooth but I have been avoiding sugar and it hasn’t been all that difficult for me. Having a lot of vegetables and fish makes a huge difference.
There is no particular dish that I would call my favourite. I have a mum who cooks the most amazing food so it is difficult to pick one favourite dish. I like almost anything. Whether it is Biryani or Chinese, I like them all.
Pilates Is What You Want To Do
When it comes to work-out, I do a lot of pilates. I work out with Yasmin (Karachiwala) and it has made a huge difference to my body. It has toned me up, strengthened my body and I feel a lot better as well. Also, swimming is something that I simply love.
I Would Not Consider Myself As a Fashion Icon
My fashion statement is very simplistic and classy. I don’t like going over the top. I like something that fits me well and flatters my body type. As long as I am comfortable in my attire, I can carry it off very well.
I do not follow trends and neither am I a fashion icon. I am a kind of person who would look for the word Sale in a mall. I consider myself a practical person and strongly believe in bargaining to get a good deal. I love the colour black and of course, I love shoes.
