Q: WHAT IS YOUR SKIN CARE ROUTINE ACROSS ALL SEASONS?

A: My skincare routine is very simple. I use Katavi Facial Cleanser to wash my face and then apply Katavi Facial Oil & Serum and Katavi Daily Moisturiser. I repeat the same process in the evening and substitute my day cream with a night cream. I also go for green peel and moisture hold facials regularly. 

Q: DO YOU CHANGE THE PRODUCTS YOU USED IN WINTER DURING SPRING?

A: No, I don’t. I use the same products because they are good for my skin.

Q: WHAT IS YOUR SKIN CARE ROUTINE WHEN IT COMES TO FACIALS AND WHY ARE THEY IMPORTANT TO YOU?

A: I go for facials twice a month. It’s important because in my field of work, I wear make-up everyday which can clog pores. Skin treatments like facials help open up your pores.

Q: WOULD YOU SAY THAT YOUR SKIN CHANGES WITH DIFFERENT SEASONS. IF SO, HOW DO YOU DEAL WITH IT?

A: Yes, it does. My skin gets dry in winter, hence I use the moisturiser to keep it moist and nourished.

Q: DO YOU SUFFER FROM ANY SKIN PROBLEMS AND HOW DO YOU DEAL WITH THAT?

A: No, I don’t. I’ve been blessed with good skin that does not react to anything.

Q: WHAT SKIN CARE OR MAKE-UP PRODUCT CAN YOU NOT LIVE WITHOUT?

A: I can't live without my Katavi Eye Cream. I love it so much because it keeps my eye area looking young, fresh and awake. I think once you are over a certain age, a good eye cream is something that you have to add to your skin care routine.

Q: WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU GIVE TO WOMEN IN TERMS OF TAKING CARE OF THEIR SKIN?

A: Drink lots of water; it nourishes your skin. It's also important to never sleep with your make-up on. Many women don’t care about this, but it is so important. It does not affect you that much when you are young, but you’ll start seeing the effects later on in life.
