EXCLUSIVE: Sana Javed reveals her beauty secrets and more!
We chat with the dazzling actress who gives fans personal tips to achieving natural beauty
Congratulations on being the new face of Conatural! Sana, what are some of your favourite clean beauty products?
Thank you. I’m partial towards organic products and Conatural is a long time favourite of mine! I’m a big fan of the Dead Sea products, Organic Aloe Vera Gel, the lip balms, the hair care products and so many others. The gentler we are with using chemical laden products on our hair and skin, the more it will glow.
You're blessed with a glowing complexion. Is it nature or nurture?
(Laughs) You’ve made me blush! I work out and eat healthy to maintain what’s been given to me by Mother Nature. I feel that good, natural and organic products always help sustain and revitalise one’s complexion, which is why I choose to use Conatural in my skin care regimen. Remember, if you feel beautiful, you look beautiful!
How would you describe your sense of style?
I’m big on simplicity, minimalism and comfort. I don’t mindlessly follow trends. I try and go for styles that suit my personality. At the moment, I’m experimenting with pastels.
You look immaculate both on screen and off. How would you describe your skin and hair type?
I’m super happy with what God’s given me. I have normal skin which is prone to sensitivity with prolonged exposure to heat and sun, especially when my work requires me to spend long hours outdoors. However, the good thing is that my hair is thick and voluminous, so no complaints in that department!
What are three essential makeup rules you live by?
I’m not really a makeup junkie but my rules are, firstly, your foundation must match your skin-tone without being cakey, secondly, to use a good primer and thirdly, to always use reliable products. Another rule to swear by is to always remember to take your makeup off!
How do you keep your hair looking so lustrous?
Intense Growth Hair Oil is my magic potion! It stimulates growth and must be massaged on a regular basis. Throw in a balanced diet into the mix and you have the whole package.
What's the first thing you do when you wake up and the last thing you do before going to bed?
I describe myself as pro-hydration. The first thing I do when I wake up is drink lots and lots of water. For bedtime, my essentials are effective cleansing and moisturising. I cannot stress enough about the importance of removing one’s makeup before going to bed. I remove mine with Conatural Organic Cleanser & Makeup Remover.
How do you protect your skin and hair from the effects of frequent styling for film and TV shoots?
All the heat from styling has definitely taken a toll on my hair, so monthly protein treatments are a must for me and work wonders. I know how difficult it is, but I still try and avoid using hair styling products as much as I can to protect my hair. As for skin, there can be no better antidote than water and moisturiser, so just drink loads and loads of water and moisturise, moisturise, moisturise! At bedtime, I use Conatural’s Advanced Super Revitalise Whitening Cream. It’s all-natural and has no bleaching or other chemical agents.
And finally, how about one last word of advice for your fans?
Please avoid unsubstantiated online tips and totkas! They are not medically credible most of the time and you shouldn’t fully rely on them. There is a lot of misguidance about products and what the ingredients are. Always remember to read labels and know what you’re putting in your hair and on your skin!
