IS'THUNZI actress Makgotso M radiates beauty on and off screen. She shares tips on how she always manages to look beautiful and presentable at all times.

WHAT DOES YOUR BEAUTY ROUTINE ENTAIL?

I cleanse, tone and moisturise twice a day. I prefer a gel cleanser as others make my skin very dry. I also apply sunscreen as part of my skincare routine. I never leave the house without it as it helps protect my skin from harmful sun rays. 

WHAT ELSE DO YOU DO IN YOUR ROUTINE?

I absolutely love exfoliating. It leaves my skin feeling soft and looking radiant. I do this twice a week and then have a facial done once a month at a spa.

WHY IS IT IMPORTANT TO TAKE CARE OF YOUR SKIN? 

It is imperative that I look after myself. Looking good and presentable at all times is really important, especially in the industry I work in.

WHICH SKIN CARE STEP DO YOU THINK IS THE MOST IMPORTANT AND WHY?

All the three steps – cleansing, toning and moisturising – play a vital role. But it's extremely important to never go to bed with your make-up on as this can damage your skin.

WHAT'S THE BEAUTY PRODUCT YOU CAN'T LIVE WITHOUT AND WHY?

I hate dry lips, so I have to have something to moisturise my lips wherever I go.
