“I combine cardio with weight training and maintain a high protein diet, but don’t neglect my carbohydrates. Also, I apply coconut oil on my face when it feels dry.”

“Drink lots of water! Also, I think a lot of people in Sri Lanka are preoccupied with trying to get their hands on the latest imported products but we have such an amazing resource in our own country – coconut oil. So many models here from other countries want to get their hands on it. You can apply it on your skin and you can even drink a couple of teaspoons of virgin coconut oil every morning and evening to keep your skin healthy.”

“To keep my skin healthy, I rely on vitamins, plenty of water and a healthy diet packed with fruits and vegetables. It is important to stay hydrated in hot and humid Colombo. A good sunscreen and moisturizer are required, too.

Working out regularly, focusing on cardio exercises and compound body movement with concentrated stretching, really adds definition and gives you a healthy body. Changing your diet and eliminating unhealthy, processed foods also can get rid of extra body fat and really add up to your shape and wellbeing.”
