Ask Shahnaz Husain

Frequently asked questions answered by Shahnaz Husain

  • How can I get rid of pimple marks?

 Once daily, at any time, mix one teaspoon each of honey and lemon juice and apply on the face. Wash it off with plain water after 15 minutes. It helps to relieve dryness and also marks. Mix multani mitti with rose water and lemon juice into a paste and apply on the face three times a week. Wash it off when it dries. If there are no pimples, use a facial scrub twice a week. Apply on the face and rub gently on the skin with circular movements, especially on the pimple marks. Wash off with water.

  • My nails break easily. Suggest a remedy to grow strong nails.

 Warm some pure almond oil or olive oil. Soak the finger tips in it for 10 minutes. Then massage the oil into the nails. Include adequate protein and calcium in your diet, like skimmed milk, yogurt, cottage cheese, egg, fish, sprouts. Follow a ten-day programme of taking gelatin. Dissolve one teaspoon gelatin in a little boiling water. Cool the water and add it to fruit juice. Have this daily for ten days.

  • My skin is oily and brown. Please tell me the order and method of using sunscreen, foundation, compact, etc.  

 For oily skin, wash the face with soap, two or three times a day, or use a face wash for oily skin. After cleansing in the morning, wipe the face with an astringent lotion, using cotton wool. Then apply sunscreen gel if you are going out in the sun. Wait for a few minutes and then apply compact powder. Look for compact powder with beige tones. Avoid foundation during the day. Compact powder will provide a smooth texture. Two or three times a week, mix multani mitti with rose water and lemon juice into a paste and apply on the face. Wash it off when it is dry.

  •  My hair becomes curly. I prefer straight hair.  Please tell me remedies.

 Use a hand-held hair dryer at home to straighten the hair. The effect will last till the next shampoo. After washing the hair, while the hair is still damp, divide it in sections. Hold the end of a section with a comb or brush. Holding it straight and slightly downwards, use the hand held dryer to dry the hair. Repeat this with each section. Hold the dryer at least 6 inches away from the hair. Please note that excessive use of the hair dryer can cause dryness of the hair.
