Ini Edo On Beauty: "Treat Yourself Like A Godess"

Last year, MIMI interviewed the talented and beautiful Nollywood actress Ini Edo. In the article All The World's Her Stage, Ini opened up about life in the limelight as one of the most sought after actresses in Nollywood. During the interview, MIMI talked to Ini about beauty; here is the rest of the interview that didn't make it into the article:
MIMI: As a woman who is known for her beauty, do you ever feel pressure to look a certain way?
Ini Edo: As long as I'm healthy and fit, that's all that matters. I'm very comfortable with my curves. I recently endorsed the MISS PLUS AFRICA Beauty Pageant because I believe that women should be encouraged to appreciate their curves. These days, you find out that women are under pressure to look a certain way. That should not be the case. No matter where you see yourself on the scale, treat yourself like a goddess!

MIMI: What things do you do, or use to keep your body, mind, and soul beautiful and balanced? Any favorite beauty/health products, tips, recipes, or regimens?
Ini Edo: I exercise a lot. Now, I'm trying to go into Yoga because I hear it's very relaxing to the soul. In regards to my make up and skin care, I drink a lot of water.
