KASAA LIFE: Anna, please tell us how you usually start your day?
ANNA YAKUNINA: My ideal day is directly related to its beginning, starting with a perfect breakfast, with a good coffee in my favorite porcelain cups, which says "October", month of my birth. Breakfast is very austere: either with eggs or porridge, an orange juice, a green or herbal tea. Depending on whether I have a movie shooting in the morning or rehearsal, my day starts either very early or very late, sometimes on free days I can get up and about 12 days.
KASAA LIFE: Please tell us about your daily sports and beauty rituals, if any.
ANNA YAKUNINA: Every morning I perform a small workout. I have a rather problematic back (since my youth years, when I trained for ballet) they showed me a few mandatory exercises that are required before breakfast. Daily gym visits in my life are not present, because there is simply not enough time for it, but as soon as I have the right time, I swim at the pool or perform pilates, this is perfect for me. Pumping and building muscles is a forgotten story for me, I stopped liking it. I am at such a wonderful age when you just want to look decent and there is absolutely no goal to be too young. I have a goal to look good. As for beauticians, jars with creams, which I always have in abundance, I just adore! Everything related to beauty, even devices and cosmetics for home care - I love and do everything. So whatever associated with beauty, visiting beauty specialists is for me, real happiness. In my opinion, without moderate exercises combined with a competent beautician, a woman should not exist. I think it's an absolute part of her normal day. You can't really ignore this.
