Zoe Saldana prefers low maintenance beauty regime

17Los Angeles, April 29 (IANS) Actress Zoe Saldana has a “low maintenance” beauty regime and prefers minimum make-up to save time.

The 35-year-old has been unveiled as L’Oreal Paris’ latest spokesmodel.

“I’m always on the run because I’m such a workaholic, so I’m pretty low maintenance. A red lipstick and a ponytail and I’m good to go. I just need my basics: foundation, red lips, mascara and blush,” said Saldana.

“That gets me through my day, every day. For me, less is more. I don’t really wear foundation all over my skin; I’ll just apply it where needed and pull my hair back in a ponytail,” she added.

The “Avatar” star has hands-off approach when it comes to her hair and is a fan of “bed-head” style.

“It’s so unruly that I rely on hair serum and oil all of the time, just on the ends. I like it to look like a horse’s mane – completely uncombed and a bit bed-head,” she added.

The actress hates the double standard when it comes to beauty and believes the biggest injustice is the fact that women with body hair aren’t socially acceptable.

“I would like to change the pressure put upon women to be hairless. Unless you choose to do it yourself, or for hygiene, then why should we confirm to what men think is attractive? That, to me, is absurd and a waste of time,” said Saldana.
