Here’s what she includes.

“For starters, I use a lot of oil on my skin. So first thing in the morning, I use oil,” she said while mentioning that she does wash her hands whenever she comes home from outside and follows all Covid precautionary measures. “But when at home, I do not over do the hand washing,” she added.

*Moisturise: twice a day.

*Exfoliate: Once a month with a good scrub.
