“I think it is very important for us to use it"
Harnaaz Sandhu, who has recently been crowned the winner of Miss Universe 2021, has shared her beauty secrets.
The 21-year-old from Punjab represented India at the 70th pageant held in Eilat, Israel on December 13, 2021.
The model has now disclosed the simple, four-step skincare routine which she swears by to help achieve her glowing skin.
She said: “I am a girl who loves taking care of her skin and I do not use a lot of products.”
Sandhu, who says she has a dry and sensitive skin type, begins by applying cleansing milk to keep her face feeling fresh and hydrated.
The new Miss Universe notes: “I think it is very important for us to use it and without this, I would never step out of my room.”
Secondly, she adds a balancing toner which helps to moisturise and soften the skin while keeping it looking youthful.
The 21-year-old warns that one should always make sure to tap a toner onto the face, never rubbing it.
The third product she uses is an active moisturiser which reduces the susceptibility of both extreme oiliness and extreme dryness.
“It helps me to hydrate my skin throughout the day and gives me a natural glow.”
The fourth and final part of the routine is applying SPF sunscreen lotion.
The model concludes: “It protects my skin from sun and pollution.
“It takes only 10 minutes to make sure your skin stays hydrated and safe throughout the day.”
Sandhu beat 79 others to become Miss Universe including runners up Paraguay’s Nadia Ferreira and South Africa’s Lalela Mswane.
Her predecessor, Andrea Meza of Mexico, crowned her at the event which was once again hosted by US TV personality Steve Harvey.
She is the third to bring the prestigious title to India after actress Sushmita Sen won in 1994 and Lara Dutta won Miss Universe in 2000.
Before winning Miss Universe in December 2021 and Miss Universe India in October 2021, Sandhu had previously won Miss Diva 2021.
Taking part in beauty pageants since she was a teenager, she had also won titles such as Times Fresh Face and Miss Chandigarth in 2017.
The model is also currently pursuing her Master’s degree in Public Administration.
Harnaaz Sandhu has also featured in a number of Punjabi films.
