She is stylish and glamorous, but Ileana D'Cruz confesses to not taking risks in clothes. Her style mantra is simple and comfortable outfits.
"I don't like taking a lot of risks when it comes to fashion. I believe that you must be comfortable in what you are wearing. I like wearing something simple, not over the top and something which fits really well," Ileana told IANS in an interview.
Hectic work schedules and film shoots take a toll on her skin and hair and the 25-year-old combats such problems by sticking to healthy diet.
"It does take a toll. I ensure I have a very healthy diet - I try and include lots of proteins, and lots of water. People underestimate the power of water," said the actress who has just endorsed Clear for its new range of shampoos.
Good hair and skin boost self-confidence, according to the "Pokiri" and "Barfi!" actress.
"I think whether we admit or not, the first thing that you notice is the face and hair. It is the way you carry yourself. If you have healthy hair, you will have self-confidence. Also, all women want to have fabulous hair," she said.
Looking perfect all the time is not important, she believes and adds: "People should be comfortable with the way they look."
"The amount of pressure people put in trying to make you look perfect...I believe, you find perfection in imperfection. I may not have a perfect face or perfectly aligned nose, but that is just the way you are," she added.
The actress, who entered film business via ads like Emami Talc and Fair and Lovely, is very happy with her association with Clear.
"The ad has come out beautifully. It is exactly what I expected it to be. Most of the people who are associated with the brand have put so much of trust in me to represent them. The ad showcases what they really want to say," she said.
