Bollywood celebrity Mira Rajput has long been known as a fabulous mom-of-two, stylista and star wife to Bollywood actor Shahid Kapoor. But a skinfluencer too? You got that right. Mira, an active Instagrammer with a following of more than a million, filmed a vlog where she spoke about balancing her beauty routine in her busy life, consuming beauty thoughtfully and her skincare favourites that give glowing skin and a glossy pout. A beauty hack she used herself was combining an apricot meal mask and clay mask in one with rose water and applying it as a quick solution to both exfoliate the skin and nourish it. Mira used the Pahadi Local Gutti Khal and Markalak for this step.
A super quick glow-up and my everyday skin care routine :) It's my first proper IGTV video so excuse any mistakes! This is what I used: @pahadilocal Gutti Ka Khal and Markalak Clay @forestessentials Rasa Serum, Tejal Balancing Water and the Date & Litchi Cream Tinge lipstick in the shade Caramel Stone available on @vanitywagon The video I shot in the morning has finally uploaded by the time I'm about to go to bed. Does that happen with everyone? #GetTheGlow
A few beauty products she rotates through the year are serum, toning water and day cream. On days when it's a bit humid or the weather is changing is when Mira reverts to using a toner for her skin. She's fond of Forest Essentials' philosophy of Ayurveda with science and uses their Rasa serum, Tejal balancing water and Date & Litchi cream. Finishing off her look is a balmy lip tint from bespoke brand Tinge Cosmetics in the shade Caramel Stone.
Another time showed us her bare beauty was when she looked fresh-faced with a post-workout routine of cleansing her skin with a scrub and a gua sha tool. She called face massages the game changer for her skin and followed this step with face cream from Forest Essentials.
#BareBeauty #GetTheGlow One of the upsides of this lockdown for me has definitely been that my skin (unlike us all) gets to take a vacay and go absolutely bare. Since I often get messages asking me about what I do for my skin, I thought I'd share some of my at-home rituals with you all. And yes, I like to make a ritual out of it because it's fun to play around with different combinations of products and tools and helps to tick that self-care box when it comes to the Ayurvedic concept of Dincharya. I don't obviously have the entire day to keep preening over myself, but a few minutes every evening (Peppa to the rescue) to look after oneself is essential to look and feel sane. Today was quite simple. I used a Fruit Scrub from Forest Essentials after I finished my evening workout to cleanse my skin. I don't always use abrasive products on my skin but I just ordered this so had to try it out. Followed it up with a Brightening Emulsion again by Forest Essentials and used my Purearth Kwansa coin to really work it into my skin. Then I massaged it with a technique that doesn't quite have a name because it's bits and bobs of what I've picked up from videos I've seen. Whatever method you use, always remember to drain the lymph. Adding a face massage to my skin care routine has been a game changer. A shower and my customised Forest Essentials cream later, this is where I'm at! Let me know what you guys think 💆🏻♀️ @forestessentials @purearth #notanad
With her radiant skin on display, signature black eyeliner and blonde highlighted hair swept in front, she commented on the state of her groomed eyebrows and how they were behaving well. If yours aren't as obedient as Mira's, clear brow gel does the trick to tame them.
