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 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 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.
When she's not trying on a new serum, researching on yet another classic fragrance and sharing lip balms with her 5-year old daughter, Latha Sunadh keeps it reined in with a nice song and a good book. Special skills include obsessing over handmade, home-made and handcrafted luxuries.
