Frequently asked questions answered by the Beauty Icon

I have warts on my face and neck. Is there a natural way to remove and prevent them? What causes warts?

Warts are small, hard, uneven, raised growths, with a rough surface. They can appear on the face and other parts of the body. Some warts are caused by a virus and spread fast and easily. A wart should never be picked with the nails. It is best to consult a dermatologist, or go for homeopathic treatment. As far as home remedies are concerned, it is said that applying vinegar on the warts daily causes them to finally fall out. Apply it only on the wart using cotton wool. It is also said that onions help. Soak cut onions in water overnight. Next morning apply the water on the area.

My hair is frizzy. What type of hair gel will suit?

After shampoo, use less quantity of a leave-on conditioner or hair serum, massaging it lightly into the hair. Or, you can also mix some water with creamy hair conditioner and put it in a spray bottle. Spray the mixture on the hair. Then comb the hair, so that it spreads through the hair. For shampoo, avoid hot water. Then wrap a towel around the head and let it soak up water. Avoid rubbing. If you use a hair dryer, use a big round brush. Divide the hair into sections. Pin them up and dry one section at a time. Blow in a downward direction. Using the dryer over the hair can cause more frizz.

 My face is losing its glow and becoming dull. Kindly suggest home remedies.

Tone the skin daily with chilled rose water, using cotton wool pads. Wipe and stroke the skin with them. Then, pat briskly with the rosewater-soaked cotton wool pads. Use a facial scrub once or twice a week. Take sesame seeds (til), dried mint (pudina) leaves and honey. Crush the sesame seeds coarsely and powder the dried mint leaves. Mix them with a little honey and apply on the skin. Leave on for 5 minutes. Then, rub gently and wash off with water. Sesame seeds have sun protective properties and soothe sun-damaged skin. Or, mix half a cup of ripe papaya pulp with 2 teaspoons ground almonds and one teaspoon yogurt. Apply it on the face, avoiding the lips and area around eyes. Wash it off after 20 to 30 minutes.
