Cult Japanese beauty brand Shiseido recently announced Bollywood superstar Tamannaah Bhatia as their India brand ambassador. Ahead of the launch of Shiseido’s luxurious flagship boutique in Mumbai, the actress who is known for her elegance, flawless radiance, and ethereal beauty gave us an exclusive insight into her association with the brand, her skincare journey, and all the tips and tricks she follows to achieve that gorgeous glow.
Congratulations Tamannaah! Shiseido has such an incredible history and legacy. What do you admire the most about the brand?
I am deeply grateful for this opportunity. First, I’d like to express my sincere appreciation to the brand for selecting me as their first Indian representative. It’s truly an honour to become a part of Shiseido’s rich legacy, a brand with a storied history. Shiseido symbolises excellence. Over the years, it has meticulously crafted a strong reputation for delivering top-notch products.
Shiseido’s unwavering commitment to innovation, quality, and the celebration of individuality strongly resonates with me on a personal level. To me, beauty transcends mere external appearance; it’s about feeling confident and empowered in your own skin.
What excites you most about being the new face of the Ultimate Shiseido Trio?
I’ve found the products from this range to be exceptionally effective for my skin. Essential Energy boasts a luxurious texture that effortlessly blends into the skin while reducing the visibility of fine lines. It provides enduring moisture, leaving your skin beautifully resilient, soft, and with a radiant dewiness. Personally, it’s become my must-have product.
You have a flawless complexion. Could you share your daily skincare routine?
I start my morning routine with an invigorating ice dip for my face to wake up my skin. After that, I follow the simple steps of cleansing, toning, and moisturising. To protect my skin, I rely on a high SPF 50 sunscreen, which I apply over my moisturiser.
I’ve been using Shiseido’s Ultimate Trio skincare range for some time, and I’ve noticed a remarkable improvement in my skin’s texture since I started using it. The Eudermine Activating Essence within this range harnesses your skin’s inherent ability to rejuvenate, resulting in enhanced clarity within just four weeks. This product not only delivers essential nourishment but also purifies your skin, leaving you with a revitalised radiance. The Ultimune serum is nothing short of miraculous, helping me address under-eye circles and making my skin noticeably more vibrant. And when it comes to the Essential Energy Hydrating Cream, it keeps my skin continuously moisturised, revealing a healthy and enduring glow. It achieves this by stimulating your skin’s natural moisture production through Hyaluronic Acid RED.
What are your top beauty tips for achieving a radiant and youthful look, especially with your busy schedule – also, do you have any quick beauty hacks you rely on?
I drink at least 3 litres of water every day. I include a daily bowl of mixed seasonal fruits in my diet. This provides my skin with the essential natural nutrients it needs to stay healthy.
What are some of your must-have Shiseido products?
I regularly use the Essential Energy moisturizer, which has significantly improved the hydration of my skin and provides it with an immediate boost. Since incorporating it into my skincare routine, my skin’s overall quality and texture have notably enhanced, resulting in a more radiant complexion. Additionally, I’m quite fond of the Ultimune Power Infusing Eye Concentrate, which effectively addresses my under-eye dark circles.
Given your schedule, how do you create harmony between inner beauty & outer beauty?
Meditation is an integral part of my routine, contributing significantly to my overall well-being. Alongside mindful practises like meditation, I prioritise a holistic diet, regular exercise, and the use of high-quality skincare products. These elements collectively enhance not only the health and appearance of my skin but also promote overall wellness. This approach allows me to harmonise inner and outer beauty, creating a sense of balance and vitality in my life.
Could you share a few memorable beauty tips or tricks you’ve picked up from your time on set?
To start your day, consider the refreshing practice of icing your face in the morning; it provides an instant wake-up call for your skin. Secondly, don’t forget the importance of sun protection, opt for a high-quality sunscreen, ideally with SPF 50, to shield your skin from the sun’s harmful effects. And last, but not least, embrace the concept of “less is more” when it comes to make-up.
As someone who is always in the public eye, how do you deal with skincare concerns like breakouts or tired skin?
Icing has been a game-changer for me in soothing skin redness. To combat breakouts, I turn to pimple patches, which effectively prevent me from picking at blemishes. Maintaining proper hydration with at least 3 litres of water a day, along with a diet rich in fresh greens and fruits, as well as a clean and holistic approach, addresses a wide range of skin and health concerns.
