Most South African viewers will know Jessica Nkosi from hit TV show The Queen, but the Volvo ambassador is also a fashionista of note, always showing off her flawless skin. How does she do it?
Below, she talks to us about her lockdown beauty routine.
What does a typical day in your life look like?
My daughter wakes me up early in the morning. Fortunately, I’m a morning person so I don’t mind. We sit together, listen to some praise and worship music and play.
How did the hard lockdown affect your hair and beauty routine?
With regards to hair, I WAS A MESS!! I have natural hair, so it’s an afro and very hard to maintain. I always went to the salon. I do not know how to maintain my own natural hair. So I had to now learn, I had to buy products and combs, etc. It was difficult, lol. But I guess it was a chance to learn more about my hair and it’s texture.
With regards to my face, I was okay, eating healthy really helped, masking my face twice a week did wonders and just drinking a lot of water. I also got to the Babbitt of steaming my face often. I don’t even want to talk about my nails… it’s too sad, lol.
What is your everyday lockdown style?
My lockdown style is sweat pants and a long-sleeve top or just pajamas all day or a gown. I would shower and wear my gown and by the time I think about actually getting dressed it’s too late in the day and it’s practically over.
