I am a 21- year- old woman, and I have a lot of pim­ple scars on my face and chest. The ar­eas un­der my chin and around my cleav­age are darker than my nor­mal skin tone, so it looks very odd. Please sug­gest some home remedies that will work fast.

— Name with­held Nat­u­ral home treat­ments are not a quick fix: you need to have pa­tience and fol­low a reg­i­men me­thod­i­cally if you want to re­solve your is­sue. Take a slice of a juicy tomato and rub this sev­eral times on the ar­eas you want light­ened. You may do this twice or thrice a day, and can even leave the skin mask on overnight. Your skin will clear up and lighten.

I have been read­ing your col­umn, and wanted to thank you for help­ing us save on cos­metic ex­penses! Com­ing to my is­sue: I have a darker skin tone on my fore­head and around my eyes — ba­si­cally ar­eas where I don’t shave. Can you please sug­gest how I can make my skin tone lighter and also of­fer a home rem­edy to re­move the hair sprouts?

— Hus­sain Add oats pow­der to honey and le­mon juice, and make a smooth paste. Ap­ply this mask on ar­eas where the com­plex­ion needs to be cleared. Once dry, re­move the mask and fol­low with a cold wa­ter rinse. You may do this twice or thrice a day. Hair sprouts should ei­ther be waxed or treated with a laser.

I have a 14- year- old daugh­ter with the fol­low­ing is­sues: fa­cial hair on cheeks and fore­head ( when waxed or threaded, she gets pim­ples); dark up­per lips’ area; dan­druff in her eye­brows and hair. Also, her skin is quite dark. Please sug­gest some easy remedies since she is very busy with school and sports, and quite a tomboy! I also have a 6- year- old with hair on her up­per lips’ area. Please sug­gest a rem­edy for that as well. Fi­nally, some­thing for my­self! I am 34, and have dark cir­cles. Also, I have ac­quired wrin­kles un­der my eyes over the past year. Please ad­vise.

— Name with­held After wax­ing or thread­ing, ap­ply yo­ghurt or aloe vera gel to calm the skin. Mas­sage the skin sev­eral times a day with this and the pim­ples will be cleared and skin light­ened; leav­ing it overnight in eye­brows and hair will rid it of dan­druff.

For your 6- year- old daugh­ter, mix an egg white with corn flour to make a thick mask and ap­ply this onto her up­per lips’ area. When the mask dries, scrub against hair growth. Do this thrice a week for good re­sults.

For your prob­lems, let co­conut milk eye pads rest on the eyes for 10 to 15 min­utes daily, be­fore bed­time; al­low the co­conut milk rem­nants to re­main overnight. The wrin­kles will be smoothened.
