Staying hydrated with ample water and relying on natural skincare products like rosewater and aloe vera gel have proven to be my go-to essentials. The mantra is minimalism – I firmly believe that less is more when it comes to skincare. Opting for a simple routine with these natural wonders not only keeps my skin refreshed but also enhances its natural glow. It’s all about embracing the beauty of simplicity – a principle that has worked wonders for my skin.

When not slaying with your looks, what do you do on a day off?

On my day off, I’m all about the good stuff that makes me feel alive. I dive into the self-care mode with some chill meditation, throw in a bit of exercise to keep the vibes high and indulge my skin in some pampering goodness. And of course, there’s nothing like hanging out with my family and friends – that’s where the real magic happens. It’s my time to recharge, feel good, and soak up all the love and laughter. Just doing the human thing and living my best day-off life!

Amidst life’s challenges, who is your unwavering source of support and comfort?

My ultimate pillar of support has undeniably been my parents, with a special shout-out to my incredible mother. Having a strong support system, especially from family, is crucial when chasing dreams. They’ve been my rock, cheering me on through thick and thin. A solid support network isn’t just comforting; it’s the backbone that empowers us to fearlessly pursue our dreams, knowing there’s a safety net of love and encouragement beneath us, and I am blessed beyond words for the support by my loved ones.
