Ask Shahnaz Husain

Frequently asked questions answered by the pioneer of the Ayurvedic beauty movement

1.      How to remove and prevent blackheads on the face?

Blackheads occur on oily skin or oily areas of the skin. After washing the face in the morning, wipe the blackhead prone areas with an astringent lotion, using cotton wool. In the morning after washing the face, make a paste of baking soda (bicarbonate of soda) and water. Apply the paste on the areas with blackheads daily and wash it off after 5 minutes. Use a facial scrub three times a week on the blackhead prone areas. You can either buy a facial scrub or you can mix rice powder with rose water and use as a facial scrub. Apply on the areas with blackheads and rub gently on the skin using small circular movements. Leave on for 5 minutes and then wash off with water. Or, you can mix egg white with oats and apply on the areas with blackheads twice a week. Wash it off when it is dry. You can go for a regular clean-up at a beauty salon.

2.      Can you suggest ways to improve my elbow skin? It is dark and uneven with lots of bumps.

Take lemon halves and rub them daily on the elbows. Wash it off and then apply sesame seed (til) oil and massage it into the skin. Make a paste of gram flour (besan), curd, lemon juice and a little turmeric (haldi). Apply the paste on elbows at least three times a week. Wash it off after half an hour. You can also apply a cream containing lemon and turmeric daily. If there are eruptions, apply sandalwood paste. If there are only blackheads, use a scrub.

3.      I am only 12 years old. Please tell me natural remedies for pimples.

Wash your face twice a day, morning and night with a medicated soap. Then wipe with an astringent lotion, using cotton wool. Mix a little rose water with sandalwood paste and apply on the face. Wash off after 15 minutes. Sandalwood paste can also be applied on pimples. Mix cinnamon (dalchini) powder with a little lemon juice and a few drops of honey into a sticky paste. Apply only on the pimples daily and leave it on for one or two hours. Mix multani mitti with rose water into a paste and apply on the face two or three times a week. Wash it off when it dries. Avoid creams and moisturizers. Use only oil-free products.
