Actress Ramsha Khan reveals her beauty secrets and lets us in on how she maintains her flawless skin.

Having started her acting career on the big screen with Rafay Rashidi’s Thora Jee Le in 2017, actress Ramsha Khan ventured into television the same year. Some of her notable TV serials include Mah e Tamam, Khudparast, Kaisa Hai Naseeban and romantic comedy, Shahrukh Ki Saaliyan. Currently Ramsha is appearing in drama series Ishqiya, which features Feroze Khan, Gohar Rasheed and Hania Aamir in key roles.

We got in touch with the pretty and talented young actress to get some insight on how she maintains her flawless skin. Here’s a lowdown on her beauty regime and what products she uses to keep her skin crystal-clear...

All about hair and skincare

Ask any aesthetician, dermatologist or even makeup artist and they’ll tell you that a skincare routine is essential for a flawless complexion. “I don’t believe in desi totkas or DIY stuff, so I stick to skincare products like night creams and peeling masks,” shares Ramsha, adding that she doesn’t go for facials.

According to the actress, good skincare starts with proper nutrition, so she suggests taking multivitamins to keep the skin looking healthy and youthful. “I take my vitamins (A, C and D) in the morning, right after I’ve had my breakfast. Apart from this I take a calcium tablet as well. I make sure to drink plenty of water and before hitting the bed I apply a night cream; that’s the secret of my smooth skin.” She reiterates that drinking a lot of water helps in flushing out all the toxins from your body and keeps one’s skin beautiful and healthy.

On the secret behind her beautiful tresses, she says that she doesn’t take care of her hair as much as she is obsessed with her skincare regime. However, Ramsha informs that she tries to oil her hair at least once a week.

Beauty rituals

Speaking of makeup, Ramsha says that she doesn’t really follow beauty trends and is in fact not too fond of wearing loads of makeup when she is not working/shooting. “I prefer to stay away from makeup as much as I can, allowing my skin to breathe,” she explains, adding that her biggest beauty indulgence is applying a peeling mask by The Ordinary. “This mask is one beauty product that I just can’t live without.”

As far as her signature beauty look is concerned, she says that it definitely is the no makeup look. “I love the no makeup look and to be honest I don’t really style my hair as they are silky straight,” she informs.

“You will find all sorts of stuff including barePRO liquid foundation by bareMinerals, L’Oreal fiber lash mascara, lip glow tint by Dior and NYX cream contour stick,” she reveals. “You will also find age rewind concealer by Maybelline, eye brow gel and compact powder by MAC,” she adds. Ramsha further went on to say that Benefit is her favourite cosmetic brand.

Tricks of the trade

In one of her live sessions on Instagram, the actress shared that she regularly applies sunscreen and that she dunks her face in ice cold water first thing in the morning. Cold water helps minimize the appearance of pores and keeps her skin glowing and fresh.

On a parting note, Ramsha Khan shares that one tip that she learnt from makeup artists backstage, is that if you bend your mascara wand a little, it works better and gives more volume to the lashes.
