Whether you’re try­ing get rid of freck­les or look­ing for a cure for dry, stringy hair, we’ve got the so­lu­tions

I’m 21 years old and my brother is 25. We both have lots of stretch marks all over our bod­ies, in­clud­ing our shoul­ders and thighs, af­ter we put on weight. This hap­pened years ago, but they still won’t go away. Please help us get rid of them as they make us feel self- con­scious.

— Name with­held Mas­sag­ing olive oil onto the skin and ly­ing in the sun has tem­po­rary ben­e­fits and can help your stretch marks prob­lem. How­ever, if you’re look­ing for a more per­ma­nent cure, laser treat­ments are be­lieved to be highly ef­fec­tive.

I’ve got­ten tanned over the years, and now I feel like I have dif­fer­ent skin tones all over my body. How do I even out my com­plex­ion?

— Renny Body scrubs are the best so­lu­tion to even out the skin tone. Make a gen­tle body scrub by mix­ing al­mond pow­der and or­ange juice and ap­ply this all over your body. Or­ange juice adds a glow to the skin and bright­ens the over­all tone, while al­mond pow­der will ex­fo­li­ate your skin.

My hair al­ways looks stringy and dry. Can you sug­gest a rem­edy to make it look full and bouncy?

— Ritu

Beat an egg and add one ta­ble­spoon of honey, a tea­spoon of olive oil and a tea­spoon of lime juice. Ap­ply this mix­ture on your hair and al­low it to dry for 30 min­utes. Fol­low this with a rinse us­ing room tem­per­a­ture wa­ter and a gen­tle shapm­poo. Eggs are ex­trememly nour­ish­ing, while honey mois­turises and olive oil and lime juice add lus­tre to your hair. Over­all, this should give your hair a full, bouncy look.

I’m a 23- year- old guy and I have se­vere dan­druff is­sues. It is very em­bar­rass­ing as the dan­druff al­ways falls on my clothes and can be seen clearly in my hair. I’m re­ally des­per­ate to get rid of it so that I don’t have to worry about what peo­ple think when they talk to me. Please help.

— Ge­orge First of all, brush your hair thor­oughly ev­ery day. Take one ta­ble­spoon of well- beaten aloe vera gel and add 12 drops of tea tree oil to it. Mas­sage this onto the scalp and leave overnight or for a cou­ple of hours. Rinse well us­ing a light sham­poo, but avoid us­ing con­di­tioner. Also, af­ter brush­ing your hair, make sure the comb is rinsed thor­oughly be­fore us­ing it again. This stops dan­druff from get­ting back onto the scalp. Aloe vera is a deep cleanser and tea tree oil has anti bac­te­rial ef­fects — they work well to­gether to cleanse and re­pair the scalp. ( Got a beauty- re­lated query?
