Looking back at the time she started working in show business, Priyanka said, “I think I realised what all it takes to actually look the way we do on magazine covers and the work we do. That’s when I realised looks aren’t everything, it’s the confidence with which you walk into a room, it’s the ability to do your job to the best of your capabilities”.

Priyanka then revealed her skincare secrets and said, “The way that I take care of my skin is to make sure to moisturise every day. I take off all my make-up before I go to bed, and it doesn’t have to be really difficult. I think hydration is extremely important, drinking as much water as you can. That is truly the elixir of life”.
