Laila Khair believes, right skin care routine along with some healthy habits, are the keys to achieving a flawless, hydrated, and youthful skin. Her preferred products are water based and must have natural organic contents because it gives her skin the hydration and locks moisture in and environmental irritants out. She does not prefer using the same product for a long time, which is why she tries new brands every now and then and always reads the products’ label contents before buying anything. She tries to follow a discrete routine for wiping makeup off her face after parties or events. She starts by swabbing her eyes clean with oil-infused cleansing water from Chanel or Garnier Skinactive Aloe Vera for soothing sensitive skin. Then she wipes her face clean with oil-based cleansing wipes from Sephora, followed by a splash of lukewarm water and to close the pores a splash of cold water. She avoids using any cleansing foam as it makes her skin rough and dry, especially during winter. As hydration is important for her skin care, she applies a moisturizer from Clinique. Among other brands her preferences are Bio Derma, and Laneige Sleeping Mask. The overnight mask gives her skin a lively, well-rested appearance the next morning. She also pampers herself with natural herbal masks made from almond and honey. The mask is kept for 5-10 minutes, then rinsed off. She suggests using this over the foaming and cleansing routine and tries to do it 4 times in a week to keep her skin soft, and healthy looking.
She never misses out on treating her hair with the extra care. Her hair care regimen includes keeping hair clean and fresh and there is no alternate to it. As she has colour treated hair, she oils her hair every day before washing it off with Goldwell, a German brand shampoo and conditioner. However, she also interchanges with other brands like Pantene, Shiseido and Sunsilk. At times, she prefers applying a hair mask for 10 minutes then washes it off to get smooth, silky and manageable hair.
For everyday makeup, she also uses water based foundation or SPF. She usually mixes her foundation or SPF with her moisturizer. For full coverage and setting her entire look, she dusts her face with an HD translucent powder. To intensify her eyes, she applies Kohl over her eyelids and to give her makeup look a vibrant touch, she wears eyeshadow. The eyeshadow palettes she uses are Urban Decay, NARS, and Make Up For Ever. Her favorite shades for regular days are brown and black. The lipstick brands she loves using are Urban Decay, Anastasia Beverly Hills, Stila and Sephora. When it comes to using blush, her preference is Chanel.
For everyday errands, she would wear tops with leggings and jeans as she has to drive herself. She accessorizes herself with sunglasses, a watch and a purse.
She steps into a party or event by draping herself in a Saree, paired with statement jewellery and purse.
