Frequently asked questions answered by the pioneer of the Ayurvedic beauty movement
Q1. My cheeks are too thin. I want to have chubby cheeks. Kindly recommend exercises.
The facial features depend on hereditary factors and also bone structure. However, you can try some facial exercises. With the lips closed, smile in a relaxed way and then suck in your cheeks towards the teeth. Hold it for a count of 10, then relax and repeat 10 times. Keeping your teeth and lips closed, blow air under your top lip and keep it there for 10 counts, then move the air to your left cheek, hold for 10 counts, then to your lower lip for 10 counts and then to right cheek for 10 counts. Relax and repeat 5 times.
Q2. My brother is 16. He has pimples on his forehead and face.
Your brother should use face wash morning and night. Then wipe with an astringent lotion, using cotton wool. Mix a little rose water with sandalwood paste and apply on the entire face, washing off after 15 minutes with plain water. Sandalwood paste can also be applied directly on the pimples. Mix multani mitti with rose water and lemon juice into a paste and apply on the face two or three times a week. Wash it off when it dries. Include fresh fruits, raw salads, sprouts and yogurt in your daily diet. Drink 6 to 8 glasses of water daily. Add the juice of a lemon to a glass of water and drink it first thing in the morning.
Q3. I have a lot of white heads on my nose and open pores. I also have dandruff. Are whiteheads and dandruff related?
Yes, dandruff and skin problems like blackheads, whiteheads, pimples and acne can be related. After washing the face in the morning, apply a facial scrub on the areas with open pores and whiteheads. Rub gently with small circular movements and wash off with water. Mix oats with egg white and apply on the areas with open pores twice a week. Wash it off when it is dry. For dandruff, wash your hair with a mild herbal shampoo three times a week, using less shampoo and rinsing very well with water. Half an hour before shampoo, apply two tablespoons apple cider vinegar on the scalp, massaging it lightly into the scalp. Once a week, heat olive oil or til oil and apply on the scalp at night, leaving on overnight. Next morning, apply the vinegar or lemon juice half an hour before shampoo.
