Ms. Namita Nayyar: You have glowing skin and gorgeous hair. Do you take some kind of skin treatment to keep it young and glowing and secondly what do you do to your hair to make them look so stunning?
Ms. Kayden Kross: My hair finally got to the place I wanted it when I was pregnant. Of course pregnancy helped it grow, but what’s helped it stay this way is I stopped washing it so frequently and rarely put heat on it. I used to wash and dry it nearly every day and was often in the make up chair, which was hell on my hair. I could never grow it out back then because it was always being dried out and broken off with all of the styling. Now I wash it twice a week, then pull it into a French braid while it’s still wet. Once it’s dry I can let it down or pull it back into a loose ponytail, etc.
It’s been sort of the same education with regards to my skin. I wear very little, if any, make up these days, and try to mess with my skin as little as possible. One thing that took me forever to realize is that hydration comes from the inside out. Of course I use moisturizer as part of a regular routine, but my skin retains moisture best when I consume less sugar and eat more vegetables, and, of course, drink plenty of water.
