We spoke to Athiya to know a little more about her life.
What’s the most luxurious thing you own? And what makes it so special?
I  think the most luxurious thing I own has to be my own skin. (laughs). I have worked over the years to take care of my skin and ensure to have a 360-degree viewpoint in taking care of it. It is special as I see my daily progress for my skin.

One Laneige product you swear by and why?
Laneige has been my preferred skincare brand from the beginning, and I must say that I wholeheartedly rely on Laneige’s Water Bank Blue Hyaluronic Serum and Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask in Berry.

After constantly being in the spotlight and exposed to makeup, how do you maintain your skin?
To address this question comprehensively, it is essential to consider multiple factors. I have a holistic point of view as far as my skin is concerned, starting with the fundamental importance of staying adequately hydrated. The significance of hydration cannot be emphasized enough when it comes to maintaining healthy skin. 
In addition, eating a balanced and nutritious diet is crucial for the well-being of the skin. I ensure at least 1 meal of my day has protein and loads of green leafy vegetables. Regularly applying sunscreen on a daily basis helps shield the skin from harmful UV rays, reducing the risk of sun damage, premature ageing, and potential skin conditions. 
A non-negotiable for you when it comes to self-care and your beauty regimen?
Consistency is non-negotiable in any routine for that matter. Establishing a routine and sticking by it is actually a sign of being consistent. Consistency over time allows skincare products to have a more significant and long-lasting impact.

Tell us about your skincare routine.
I feel my morning routine is simple compared to my nighttime skincare routineFor my AM routine, since I have dry skin I skip the cleanser. I wash my face, followed by a moisturizer and then the most important, apply sunscreen. I ensure I use the three-finger rule for the application of sunscreen. In contrast, my PM routine has more steps involved. I ensure I start by double cleansing my face to eliminate any sunscreen or makeup residue. This has been a total game-changer in my skincare game. I follow it up by using Laneige’s water bank collection’s cream which is lightweight for the skin. 
If you could jet off right now, where would you go?
If I were to jet off on a getaway, London would be my destination of choice. London holds a special place in my heart, and it has always felt like a home away from home. I particularly enjoy strolling through the vibrant streets of Covent Garden and find pleasure in visiting Frescos for grocery shopping.
