Q I sleep for seven hours every day and indulge in a spa facial once in two weeks, yet fail to get rid of my dark circles. Is there any other solution?
A The reasons could be many — from hereditary factors to nutritional deficiencies. A healthy dose of vitamins, iron and folic acid would be of a great help. Massage your peepers in circular motion with almond oil, before going to bed. In the morning, use cooled tea bags on your eyes to take away the puffiness. Potato with tomato juice is a miracle mixture for under eye dark circles. Q I’m 40 years old and have recently started noticing age spots, especially around my hand and neck area. Will they increase over a period of time? How do I get rid of them?
A Pigmentation around neck and hands suggests hormonal disturbance, onset of menopause, diabetes or iron or folic acid deficiency. I would recommend you to know the root cause of the problem. Get your blood tested. Generous intake of green leafy vegetables, variety of fruits and 12 glasses of water a day is a must. Apply grated raw papaya mixed with yogurt and aloevera gel. Regular collagen masks and salicylic peels will show instant results.
Q My skin is extremely oily because of which I’m unable to apply any make-up. My face becomes so messy within a couple of hours. Are there any special products that you would recommend?
A For a mess-free makeover, wash your face with an oil control facewash. Rub ice for a minute to close down the pores. Tone your skin and guard it from bacteria with an astringent. Prep your face with a matte effect pre-base. Use soufflé foundation or a compact for even skin tone. Avoid cream blushes at all costs. Seal the make-up with a make-up fixer. Blotting papers are your best friends, so keep them handy.
