Hype Hair: Now, what about your skin-care routine? How do you care for your skin?
Chilli: It's funny, because people always ask me that question, and on my Twitter page, everything I talk about relates to health and taking care of your skin and all of that kind of stuff. The number-one thing that I suggest that helps with the skin is water. You can never drink enough water, and I have to say I exfoliate my skin a lot. I think that's very important because you're always getting rid of that dead layer.
Hype Hair: How often do you exfoliate?
Chilli: Three times a week, but you have to find a scrub that is not too abrasive, because then you're going to damage your skin.
Hype Hair: Let's talk makeup. Do you have any favorite brands?
Chilli: When I don't have to be in front of the camera, I just love lip gloss, and I might put on a little teeny, tiny bit of eyeliner. When I'm really dressing up, but don't have to be in front of the camera, I'll just put on some blush.
Hype Hair: So you just keep it to the bare minimum?
Chilli: Yep. I'm telling you, if you drink that water and cut out certain things when the skin is clear and smooth, you don't need makeup.
Hype Hair: That's true. That water will clear your skin up so well.
Chilli: Yes, ma'am. You might have to go to the bathroom a little more often, but let's weigh the options. I'd rather go to the bathroom about three more times a day than have to deal with pimples all over my face, so y'all can talk about me and say, "Chilli needs to use Proactiv." (Laughs)
Hype Hair: So your most tried-and-true beauty tip is just drinking that water for your skin?
Chilli: Yes. Water and exfoliating, and find a good vitamin C serum for your skin because vitamin C is very good for the skin.
Hype Hair: OK. Now, what about fitness? How do you stay in such great shape?
Chilli: I work out three to four times a week. I'll do some cardio on my own. I think people can make it fun for themselves. You can do little things at home. I'll do 100 jumping jacks and then after that, I'll do 35 squats. Then I'll do 15 push-ups, then after that I'll do my sit-ups and then I'll keep rotating. Once you've done that for about 20 minutes or so, you really have what you need.
Hype Hair: How would you describe your personal style and your sense of fashion?
Chilli: A very natural rock-and-soul kind of look.
Hype Hair: What about true beauty? How do you define it?
Chilli: It's kind of cliché, I guess, but true beauty is your spirit. If you have a beautiful spirit, I don't care what you look like on the outside, that spirit shines through so much more. You can be, on the outside, the most beautiful person ever, but if you have a crappy spirit, than you're just ugly.
Hype Hair: Well said, Chilli. I really appreciate your time, and it's been a pleasure talking with you.
Chilli: Thank you!
