This is the time of year to relax, unwind, and indulge in lavish pampering sessions or no-makeup days. The recent post by Kiara Advani is all the proof we need to know that Saturdays aren’t only for plebs; our favourite celebrities also love to sit back chill and pamper their skin. Bollywood’s “golden girl” recently posted a selfie on her Instagram stories in which she could be seen giving her followers a glimpse of her self-care routine.
Kiara may be enjoying the success of her most recent singles, but she is one of the few superstars who believes that taking care of oneself is just as vital. She enjoys treating herself just as much as she enjoys working out in the gym. We recently spoke with her to learn more about her self-care routine, and here’s what the Govinda Naam Mera actress shared:
How often do you indulge in some self-care?
To be honest, whenever I get a chance. I’m a hustler but I also believe that taking care of your mind, body and soul is what truly strengthens you both physically and mentally. Due to my hectic schedules, including press appearances and long days on set, I consider my personal regimen as self-care. It is a mix of everything in moderation. It is the small, conscious practices every day that make a big difference in the long run.
Is there a self-care practice that you follow every day?
I like to mix things up, but I always start my morning with a glass of lukewarm water and end it with a workout. It helps in detoxification and gives my skin a natural glow. When you feel beautiful in your own skin, you automatically look beautiful.
How do you unwind after a long day?
Often, I draw a quick bath to relax my muscles after a busy day. When I’ve been outdoors, I like to exfoliate my skin using a gentle body scrub like the Rice Powder Body Scrub by my favourite self-care brand Kimirica.
What is your current favourite bath essential?
A soothing bath, in my opinion, is the best way to relax and feel calm. I mentioned it on Instagram a while ago, but my current favourites are Kimirica’s Love Story Bath Salt and Love Story Bubble Bath. They smell Heavenly and help me unwind after a long day of shooting.
Is there a self-care brand that you are currently crushing on?
I have always been a minimalist. I like to keep my lifestyle as conscious and uncomplicated as possible which is why I keep searching for brands that follow the same philosophy. Last year I even partnered with a vegan self-care brand named Kimirica. I visited one of their stores and I fell in love with the experience. I stumbled upon their chic gift sets and candles that smell heavenly. The best part was that everything was cruelty-free, vegan, and those are the things I look out for when I am buying products for myself or to gift my loved ones.
How do you encourage your loved ones to pamper themselves with self-care?
I believe that self-care is the perfect way to shower yourself with love and that’s something we all should do. As much as I enjoy pampering myself, I equally enjoy pampering my loved ones. We all lead busy lives, and occasionally I think we forget to relax and take some time for ourselves. Recently, I’ve grown to like the idea of self-pampering presents. I enjoy giving fragrant candles and pampering bath products as gifts. My mother enjoys such gifts the most.
