A look at Roshni Chopra’s beauty routine that is filled with exciting products, luxe reccos, and interesting ideas.

Roshni Chopra is many things rolled into one. She’s been an actress on popular Indian soaps, a television presenter, reality show winner and now, an Instagram influencer whose style and beauty advice is revered by every millennial on the internet. The fact that she’s a mother of two, juggling a digital career and living life beautifully (her Insta-filters are simply stunning!) is testament to her determination, individuality and grit.

But first, what makes Chopra a digital powerhouse? Her simple ‘Less is More Makeup tutorials‘ on IGTV that are relatable and her striking beauty shelf. Discovering new beauty additions is her passion and travelling to exotic locations is manna to her soul. We asked the busy lady to give us an insight into her beauty routine, her biggest extravagances and makeup kit, and she gave us her honest, #notsponsored list.

What’s your idea of beauty? Is there a definition you live by?

My definition of beauty is feeling or being comfortable in your skin, of practising and feeling self-love. It’s a heady concoction of confidence and acceptance of the self.

What is your daily skincare regime in the AM?

I keep it quite simple as of now. I wash my face with a Juicy Chemistry Face Wash (the range has options from Saffron and Hemp to Tamanu), followed by Drunk Elephant C-Firma Day Serum and the Estee Lauder Daywear Anti-Oxidant 72H-Hydration Sorbet Creme SPF 15 with the Bobbi Brown Extra Eye Repair Cream. During the day if I’m feeling sweaty or dull, I just spray on some chilled rosewater to hit the refresh button. Once a week, I mask in the morning before my bath.

What kind of skin do you have and what extra care does it need?

My skin is super dry, it drinks up moisture, and I feel clean beauty products and stuff from my kitchen give it the best glow.

Supplements you are taking for good skin and hair?

I don’t take any specific supplements as of now. I eat amla candy for healthy hair and drink lots of water during the day. Chia seeds go best in my nimbu paani during the warm weather, and I try to stay away from white sugar.

What is your PM skincare routine like?

At night, I’m using Dr Sheth’s Vitamin C & Moringa Oil with the Purearth Kwansha Beauty Coin to double-cleanse and face roll. After that, I cleanse with Dr Sheth’s Brightening Cleanser and apply Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Serum alongside Forest Essentials Date and Litchi Creme. Once a week, I use a hydrating overnight mask like the Summer Fridays Jet Lag Mask or the Laneige Sleeping Mask.

What about your wellness routine – is there a process you follow?

Yoga, meditation, thinking positive thoughts – that’s my wellness routine. I’m a huge believer in the law of attraction. You attract what you believe – that’s a fact. I indulge in detoxing / relaxing teas like Chamomile and Tulsi too.

What are the pampering sheet masks / facial masks you use?

I love Dr Jarts from Korea and am obsessed with Korean sheet masks too. Of late though, I understand that sheet masks are not good for the environment, so I’ve moved away from them. I now try to buy anything that comes in jars or recyclable packaging.

Haircare routine you follow?

I wash my hair twice a week and will always oil and mask before I wash. I apply an oil-based serum right after the wash while the hair is wet before I dry it, it helps lock in moisture.

Travel products you love and carry?

Minis from the Estee Lauder range are my must-haves when am on a journey. Other than that, I never travel without my trusted Summer Fridays Jet Lag Mask, Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Serum, the Bobbi Brown Extra Eye Repair Cream and Clarins Beauty Flash Balm.

Nail must-haves?

Cuticle oil and the L’Occitane hand cremes are always in my nail kit.

What is your most extravagant purchase in beauty?

The ones that were worth it? My trusted Dyson Airwrap and the Refa Face Roller.

Who is your facialist – any regular facials you get done?

I’ve been going to Dr Geetika Mittal two-three times in the last year and have tried and loved her hydrating and glow facials.
