Ask Shahnaz Husain

 Frequently asked questions answered by the Beauty Icon

 Can we apply face packs daily? I apply besan and curd daily.

Yes, face packs may be applied daily, but they should be used according to skin type. Fruit packs may be applied daily. If the skin is very oily, a multani mitti pack may be applied daily to reduce oil. Otherwise, apply a pack twice a week. Besan suits oily skin more. If you have normal to oily skin, apply the besan and curd pack daily. Add a pinch of turmeric.

My hair fall has increased a lot, especially after working out in the gym.

The sweat and oil secretions increase during physical activity and this can lead to hair loss. Rinse the hair well after working out. Use less shampoo and rinse well. Hair loss can occur due to oily scalp, dandruff, nutritional deficiencies, stress, etc. Apply herbal hair tonic daily on the scalp. Apply olive oil once a week the night before shampoo. Avoid head massage. Have a small bowl of sprouts daily. Ask your doctor to prescribe Vitamins C and B-Complex.

I want curly hair. How can I do it at home?

Nowadays you get curling irons, but hair setting rollers can help to curl the hair. Use large rollers for big curls. Plastic or wire mesh rollers are available. The hair should be clean and damp before setting. For basic roller setting, use 12 rollers in four sections, i.e. the top of the head, back and sides. Roll the three rollers on the top of the head and back towards the neck. On each side, roll towards the face. Divide the hair into sections, comb and wind the hair on the rollers. Leave the rollers on till the hair is dry, or use a hair dryer.

What do you mean by toning? How to tone the skin?

A5. Toning is part of routine skin care. It helps to refresh the skin and close the pores. It improves blood circulation to the skin surface and adds a glow. After cleansing the skin, use a cotton wool pad, soaked in rose water, to wipe and pat the skin. Stroke skin gently, using outward and upward movement on the cheeks. End at the temples and apply gentle pressure at the temples. On the forehead, start from the centre and go outwards on each side, ending at temples. For the chin, use circular movements.
