My mom is the most important person
in my little black book.
Since she was a little girl
she always took care of her skin and made me
realize since I was a little girl
the importance of it, of course.
When you’re young, you don’t listen as much but
as I grew older I realized how much
these little tricks and amazing secrets
that she had
were integral to my skin and we’re going to do
a DIY little secret recipe
that my mom taught me for your skin.
As a teenager, I had a lot of self esteem issues.
I was very concerned about
how I looked.
I didn’t feel beautiful.
I felt like-
And tomboy on top of that.
You were climbing up trees, climbing up walls-
I knew I was- I knew I attracted attention
when I was in high school.
And why would that be?
Not because I was beautiful
No! Because I walked like
different and my hair bounced.
I found tricks.
I never thought I was beautiful.
I think that happened to me in my late 20’s actually.
It took me that long, I’m not kidding.
Well you didn’t really probably but the world knew it.
I knew it.
when you went to the US at thirteen
you were this gawky..
And when I met you at sixteen
you had meta morphed into something
amazing, you were so beautiful
I didn’t recognize you at the airport myself.
When I went into the whole
pageant thing and for the first time
foundation on my face.
When you came home and just
washed off your face with soap
I said, “The make up hasn’t come off yet.”
Your pores were like crying, like clogged.
You must clean your skin very very well
before going to bed.
I mean, that’s when your skin is breathing.
I’m usually traveling all around the world
and you know whatever
problems I might be having on my skin
she is incredible!
She knows how to have quick fixes for your skin
especially when it’s troubled.
Let’s talk about like
cleaning out the skin
I use organic coconut oil which
That’s great right?
It gets like little
oily and warm.
Keep on the face for like-
a couple of minutes.
And then take like
a moist hand towel and put that in hot water
and then once its moist just rub it against
your skin gently like that
and it exfoliates and hydrates at the same time.
And that just takes off all your make up
and that like really helped
with my dry skin.
And when you go to bed your pores say, “ahhhh..
I was shooting a movie
and the sun is so harsh
and I remember I got
because I was shooting everyday
on the beach and my make up artist
was struggling because my skin
color would change every
hour I think.
And I was burning
and I was peeling everywhere
And I remember my mom made this like mask.
I think Ubtan is one of my favorite
Do you think we could
make it in the kitchen and show it to them
It has to be whole wheat.
Whole wheat flour.
It help to work as an exfoliator.
If you want it just for the face; two spoonfuls.
A pinch of turmeric.
So you take some
A few drops of lime juice.
And then we add yogurt to it
and the yogurt has to be
What should the consistency be like?
Turn it into a paste.
If it’s too dry, put in the rose water.
Yeah, it’s too dry.
And here we go!
That’s the paste.
This is Ubtan.
And that like the consistency of it.
And in about
It becomes like a mask, it dries up.
And then what you have to do is
rub it a bit as its drying to remove it.
It comes off when it’s dry.
I love being your demo model.
And so this process
takes those little fine hairs off.
It takes the fine, dirty skin off.
I feel like I really need to do this tonight.
I may not have done it for a really long time.
I feel like you have all of these tricks
but like these passed down
you know through generations
of Indian women because it’s such a
an old culture.
You also had like this amazing
homemade lip scrub.
Rose water and sugar.
You might even put rose petals if you want
the pink to be in there.
If you want to be like Cleopatra.
Just a few rose petals.
Just scrub it on your mouth.
All the dead skin goes away.
And your lips are pink and plush.
Because of the sugar you get that
Ohhhh so the sugar gives it like a-
It’s hydroscopic so it
pulls the fluid out and your lips go pop.
She’s a doctor.
Just today my stylist was like
getting me into my shirt and she was like
“Oh you have such soft skin.”
And I was like really?
I love oiling my body in general.
I feel like you know people take care of their faces
so much we forget the rest of it.
But like at night, it takes five minutes
and you still use it?
I use it all the time.
So what are the other thing I may have turned you on to
Some make up tricks.
Don’t do eyes and mouth together.
Don’t look like a Christmas tree when you-
How to get that put on glow.
Yeah, what is that?
How do you get that?
Do you want me to say it?
No, I don’t want you to say it.
Okay, so I’m definitely putting this on my face today.
Do you want to try it with me?
Yeah we can both do it and watch a film.
Mask, movie, and Vino.
That sounds like a good date night mom.
Cheers to that.
