September 9, 2019 (IANSlife) Being a model may be fascinating for outsiders, but comes at the cost of good skin and hair, says model Sony Kaur.

Hyderabad-based Kaur started modelling at the age of 16. Today, she is a familiar face on the ramp of big fashion events such as the Lakme Fashion Week and the Amazon India Fashion Week.

“Models may look flawless on the ramp, but even they have dark circles and pimples. The credit is to our makeup artistes, who do a great job of covering our physical flaws,”she tells IANSlife

“Our skin and hair goes through a lot of torture back stage, and so models have to work harder compared to others to maintain their body. Taking the right supplements and eating right is therefore very important,” says Kaur, adding that she goes for regular skin clean-ups and take supplements to keep her skin and hair healthy.

Kaur, however, does not follow a strict diet regime. “I eat everything. We all should eat everything. I avoid junk and oily food. But prefers protein-rich diet including eat rice, dal, and everything which is home-cooked. I don’t really restrict myself,” she says. “Everything in limit is good for the body. Our body needs everything,” she adds.
