Frequently asked questions answered by the Beauty Icon

Q1. I have acne on my back and also some spots. How to get rid of them?

Check if you have dandruff, as it can lead to acne on your back and shoulders. Apply an astringent lotion on the back twice a day, using cotton wool. Mix a little rose water with sandalwood paste and apply, washing it off after 15 minutes. Sandalwood paste can be applied directly on the eruptions. Mix multani mitti with sandalwood paste, rose water and lemon juice into a paste. Apply on the back two or three times a week and wash it off when it dries. Wash the hair three times a week. Rinse well with water. After shampoo, add the juice of a lemon to a glass of water and use it as a last rinse.

Q2. My lips are dark and dry. Please tell me how to lighten the colour. 

The skin of the lips is very thin and delicate. However, after washing the face, when the lips are wet, rub them gently with a soft towel. This helps to remove dead skin. Add a few drops of lemon juice to cream of milk (malai) and apply on the lips. Leave on for an hour. Apply pure almond oil daily on the lips at night and leave on overnight. Look for a lip balm with sunscreen.

Q3. I have had chicken pox marks in my face for years. Will they go?

You can have Veg Peel treatments. You can also try some home remedies. Make a paste of baking soda and a little water. After washing the face in the morning, apply the paste daily on the areas with marks and wash it off after 5 minutes. Use a facial scrub twice a week. Rice powder and curd make a good scrub. Apply it on the face and rub gently on the skin with small circular movements, especially on the areas with marks. Wash off with water. Take two teaspoons of curd, add a pinch of turmeric and apply it on the face daily. Wash it off after 15 minutes. It will relieve dryness and also help marks.

Q4. Suggest tips for oily skin during winter.

Oily skins also feel dry during winter. Add a little milk to honey and apply it on the face daily. Wash off after 15 minutes. After washing the face, wipe with rose water, using cotton wool. Use a sunscreen gel.  Or, mix one teaspoon pure glycerin to 100 ml rose water and keep in an airtight bottle. Use a little of this on the face to relieve dryness.
