Bollywood actor Kareena Kapoor has always managed to strike a balance between personal and professional life. In an interview Kareena was asked about how she would not miss the occasion of Diwali due to her tight shooting schedule of her upcoming film Veere De Wedding.

“We will be finishing our Delhi schedule a few days before Diwali, so I will be spending time with my family. Work is a priority but family is very important to me,” she said.

As her son Taimur will be celebrating his first Diwali, Kareena said that her son loves family outings.

“I’m sure (he) will enjoy the family gatherings. Apart from getting him goodies and gifts for the season, I would love to play dress-up with him and get him into the most adorable traditional outfits,” said Kareena.

Adding further she said, “Also, he is a fan of Indian sweets. So, I am sure he would have a fun time trying the very many festive specialties.”

As Diwali is the festival of food indulgence, Kareena was asked about her plans to deal with the same.

“All of us are big foodies. So, I eat everything and enjoy them, but then I make it a point to not miss my workout. I drink lots of water and eat in moderation. Also, I think everyone has become conscious of changing times and has inculcated a responsible sense in us,” said the fashion Diva.

Speaking about her skin care routine for Diwali, Kareena said, “Festivals come around a confused season when it’s still hot and humid, but also dry and scaly. So, prepping my skin and giving it the moisturisation and nourishment it needs is very important.

Also, I am a big foodie, but the aftermath of the yummy, oily delicacies just scares me. So, I follow a three-step prep regime to prevent my skin from breaking — hydrate, nurture and exercise. And the new Lakme Argan Night Serum is an added bonus to this regime, as it gives all the TLC (tender, love and care) and rejuvenation my skin craves for.”

“For makeup, I always try to keep it simple, clean and fun. Smokey eyes, bold bright lips and dewy skin are my favorite go-to looks. Kohl is my all-time favorite. I absolutely love sporting a bold, red lip. Lastly, the new Lakme Argan Foundation has gotten me hooked for the nourished, dewy finish it gives,” she added.
