Summer is when the layers drop off, hemlines move northwards and everyone goes back to the basics. Not only to stave off the heat but also to sport the season's minimal chic aesthetic. It's true for makeup as well. Bases go light and healthy, dewy skin shines under the spotlight. Especially in times like these when majority of our hours are spent indoors, nurturing the skin should take centre stage. Malaika Arora is showing us how it's done. In response to her gal pal Kareena Kapoor, she calls kaftans, messy hair and no makeup her new summer essentials. When it looks that good, we don't mind making it ours too.
We're looking back at the many times Malaika has set bare skin goals this summer and long before it too.
She calls this her 'missing-my-family-friends-face' but all we can see is dewy skin, rosy cheeks and a plump pout.
Sporting messy waves and a wide smile, bare skin has never looked quite this good on Malaika.
Last month, she resounded with gratitude and mentioned how she loves the sun on her face and wind in her hair. We love it too!
When settling down for lunch, she gives us a glimpse of her fresh-faced look with her hair in a bun.
The previous summer, Malaika enjoyed an outing with her glowing skin, groomed brows and full lips on display.
Her radiant skin looks even dewier when added to her snuggly shot with wavy hair.
While pampering herself with skincare products, Malaika's glowing skin is our favourite accessory in this picture.
