The Beautiful Life: Celebrity chef Pooja Dhingra

Bonus, all the beauty essentials she never leaves steps out without

Around seven years ago, Pooja Dhingra graduated from the Cordon Bleu in Paris and brought her inimitable French flair to Mumbai with Le 15 Patisserie. The humblest measure of her success since is that Bollywood’s best would come to blows if you told them that her fluffy concoctions and pastries weren’t, indeed, the best you’ve ever tasted.

 Apart from Alia Bhatt, Sonam Kapoor and more on her speed dial, pastry maestro Pooja has since picked up some hard-earned body positivity along the way, and some of that elusive healthy living mojo. Being elbow-deep in sinful icing on a daily basis hasn’t dented her dedication; sugar has now been pruned out of her diet to special occasions and menu tastings. Back that up with a healthy exercise regimen, and Pooja discovered the most radiant skin of her life.

In between whipping up marvelous sugary creations, we got Pooja to let us sneak a peek inside her tan Rheson sling at her beauty essentials. Here's what we learned.
