Actor Varun Dhawan represents a new crop of stars who take skin care and grooming seriously and have no reservations about expresing their views on beauty and wellness. With Salon India, he shares information about his preferences in skin care and grooming
What all will we find in your shower cabin?
My day usually begins with Ponds Men Energy Charge Face Wash to get rid of dullness and make it bright and energised! I follow that with a moisturiser ideal for my skin type, and I do this again at night before going to bed! I do have a couple of hair gels in my cabinet.
What is your one guilty and expensive grooming pleasure?
I actually have an amazing trimmer for facial hair. It cost me a couple of hundred pounds.
Do you visit spas – if yes, where?
Yes I visit spas. In India, I have a personal masseuse who comes home. While abroad, I try one at the hotel I’m staying in. Marriott and Four Seasons have good spas, too.
What’s your preferred fashion style?
My preferred style is grunge. I like ripped jeans and my old white T-shirts and white shirts. I also love wearing shorts and a cap.
Who cuts your hair?
Do you think men should wear make-up or have mani-pedi session?
I think it’s fine for a man to get a manicure or pedicure session, but not call it that! And a man should only wear make-up, if he is playing a role or something.
Do you ever face bad hair days? What do you do about it?
Yes, I do face bad hair days, but I just wear a cap on such days.
Which is your favourite fragrance?
I think I own around seven or eight fragrances. My current favourite is from Hugo Boss.
