Anita Hassanandani On Why She Loves Clean Minimalist Beauty
Walks us through her easy to maintain beauty routine
During one of our interesting and informal tete-a-tete, Anita shared her simple and minimalist beauty routine that she finds easy to keep up as a new mother with a full-time acting career. Here’s what she says:
WHAT IS YOUR SKIN CARE ROUTINE?
My skincare routine is quite simple actually. It includes a cleanser and moisturiser for sure, that I use morning and evening both. Followed by a broad spectrum sunscreen during the day. I’ve also started using serums lately, a Vitamin C one in the morning and a retinol one, at night.
DOES YOUR HUSBAND ROHIT ALSO JOINS YOU IN YOUR SELF CARE SESSION?
Yes, once in a while when he gets time or he wants to pamper himself.
IS THERE A WORKOUT ROUTINE THAT YOU FOLLOW?
I do try and workout in the gym whenever I get time from my shoots. Otherwise, I do yoga and try to eat healthy meals at all times.
So, what do you think about clean beauty? When did you realize you should switch to conscious brands?
No matter how much people talk about going with the contemporary skincare trends, there is a huge faith that is attached to ingredients that have been passed down through generations. When we were expecting Aaravv, I realised the harmful chemicals present in our daily products and I definitely did not want my baby to get exposed to them. That’s when I understood the importance of clean, toxin-free beauty and decided to switch to safer products for my entire family.
Tell us one of your favorite clean beauty brands, whose products you vouch for?
There are so many brands that I absolutely love, thanks to Vanity Wagon, be it skincare, makeup or even hair care. It’s really difficult to choose one!
Which of the predicted beauty trends in 2022 is your favorite so far?
Minimal makeup, dramatic eyes, statement blush… It is hard to pick just one! But if I had to pick, I would go with Minimal Makeup.
If there is one makeup trend you could bring back from the 2000’s era, which one would it be?
Glossy Lips! It has to be hands down, glossy lips!
Any beauty tips that you live by?
No matter how tired I am, I make sure to remove my makeup before hitting the bed. Also, I drink a lot of water to keep myself hydrated and have glowing skin.
