Being naturally lush is about looking and feeling gorgeous from the inside-out. It’s about the aura that makes people stop and wonder – wow, what’s she got going?
Fitness , eating clean, mindful routines and positive vibes, y’all!
That’s the question likely to pop in anyone’s head on meeting the pretty Pamma Gaba – makeover consultant, fitness buff, healthy living advocate , model and mum to 2 cute li’l girls. However, beyond the delicate face and friendly demeanour is a strong will and a commitment to regular work-outs, meal planning, skin-care rituals and advising women on how to look their best.
She shares her fitness and happy skin routines and rituals with Naturally Lush. Here’s all the glam-chic-healthy dope.
“I start my day at 6.30 am with Hot Lemon Water , Mixed Nuts and a shot of Cold Pressed Coconut Oil to detox , hydrate and energise from within. After dropping my girls to school , I pop-in my hair vitamins ( I swear by Hairburst! ) and 1 Banana as a pre-work out snack.
It’s time to hit the gym around 9.00 am (5 days a week). My workouts include a mix of different routines including Cardio, Strength, Yoga and Spinning to ensure toning , endurance as well as flexibility. ”
Monday / Yoga + Cardio
Tuesday / Strength Training (Back +Triceps)
Wednesday / TRX class or sometimes I just take a break
Thursday / Spinning + Abs
Friday / Legs
Saturday / Recovery Day
Sunday / 30 min walk in the evening
“I believe in planned meals that are freshly prepared , wholesome and balanced. An average day meal plan will include :
Breakfast / 2 Egg whites with Oats/Bread/Poha
Midday Snack / Green Vegetable Juice (Cucumbers, Celery, Mint leaves, Chia and Flax seeds) or Green Tea and a fruit.
Lunch / Brown Rice or 2 multigrain Chapatis/Pasta /Noodles with veggies and lentils / chickpeas / chicken / fish / curd – so basically a balanced meal that includes one protein source , one carbohydrate source and veggies.
Post-lunch / Digestive green tea and fruit or indulge in some dark chocolate.
Early evening / a cup of tea or coffee + a small Oatmeal cookie
Dinner / Sprout salad + Grilled Chicken or Fish.
I go salt-free one evening a week where regular dinner is replaced with a Smoothie (berries, yogurt, protein half scoop, chia and flax seeds). Weekends are for indulging – Burgers, Pizzas or even Paani Poori and Chat Papri , which I balance out by eating one healthy meal.”
On the skin care routine behind her ethereal glow, she shares, “I am religious about CTM (Cleansing, Toning, Mositurising) in the AM & PM and use Lancome Face Wash & Toner , Kiehl’s Deep Moisture Balm followed by Vit C Serum Obagi , Sunscreen La Roche-Posay SPF 50+. Before hitting the bed, I cleanse & tone with the same products and additionally use Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Oil and a Bobbi Brown under-eye hydrating cream”.
Get that calendar out, plan your workouts , meals and happy skin rituals.
Glow, girl and stay Naturally Lush!
