Bollywood actress Genelia D’Souza, who has maintained her distance from the camera after her marriage and motherhood, will be walking into the small screen with a TV commercial of a skincare range Olay Total Effects.
The actress has made her first comeback with Olay post her pregnancy. And she will be sharing the screen space with Bollywood’s peppy actress Kalki Koechlin.
Genelia, who has starred in movies like “Jaane Tu… Ya Jaane Na” and “Tere Naal Love Ho Gaya”, got married to Riteish Deshmukh in 2012. They were blessed with a baby boy Riaan in November last year.
The actress says her skin lost its glow after giving birth forcing her to look away from the mirror. She emphasised on the need for a proper skin care regime to get back the youthfulness.
“Post delivery, my skin became dull and patchy. My pregnancy glow was all gone. Honestly, I had just stopped looking at myself in the mirror. They asked me if I knew my skin age and I was like my skin has an age?
“I took a test and found out my skin age was higher than my age. The brand came to my rescue and now after taking the #OlayChallenge, my skin feels fresher and younger, once again,” Genelia said in a statement.
In the commercial, the actress talks about how having a baby changes everything including skin.
