Frequently asked questions answered by Shahnaz Husain

 Please tell me how to prevent hair fall and have thick hair.

 Some of the reasons for hair loss are dandruff, oily scalp, stress, thyroid imbalance, illness, nutritional deficiencies, hair damage caused by repeated dyeing, colouring, perming, straightening, etc. Hair loss after pregnancy is also common. So, you can try to identify the cause in your case. Apply non-oily herbal hair tonic on the scalp daily, using cotton wool and leave on. Avoid massage. Part the hair in sections and apply on the scalp. Apply pure coconut oil or olive oil once a week the night before shampoo. Avoid head massage. Diet is very important. Have a small bowl of sprouts daily and include fresh fruits, salads, leafy green vegetables, soyabean, curd, in your diet. Ask your doctor to prescribe vitamin and mineral supplements.

My hands and legs have become darker. Please tell me how to remove tan. I have normal to oily skin. Which foundation is better – liquid or powder? 

 Apply sesame seed (til) oil daily and massage it on the arms and legs. Mix gram flour (besan), curd, lemon juice and a little turmeric (haldi) into a paste and apply at least three times a week. Wash it off after half an hour. Then apply til oil and massage it into the skin, as recommended. Apply a foundation which is one shade lighter than your skin colour. You can apply a water based foundation. If the weather is warm and humid, you can use compact powder in a beige shade.

 How to get rid of pimples and pimple marks?

 Wash your face with a medicated soap. Then apply astringent lotion, using cotton wool. Boil neem leaves over a low fire. Cool and strain. Make a paste of the leaves and apply daily on the face. Wash off with plain water after half an hour. Apply sandalwood paste 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 and lemon juice 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.  Include fresh fruits, raw salads, sprouts and yogurt in your daily diet. Drink 6 to 8 glasses of water daily.
