Salt for Sparkling teeth
My eight- year- old daughter’s teeth are yellowish, despite the fact that she brushes her teeth twice daily: morning and evening. Is there any way in which she can have sparkling white teeth or would you advise me to take her to the dentist? She hates den
I’ve been reading conflicting reports on whether hair should or shouldn’t be oiled. What do you recommend? Also, if one does oil one’s hair, should it be massaged on the scalp or should it be spread all through the hair? Would appreciate your feedback.
— Samantha Thanks for your query. Massaging oil into the scalp helps nourish it, and activates circulation; applying oil on the rest of hair repairs the dry, damaged hair and adds sheen to the hair, giving it a healthy texture. Please do massage oil into your hair for best benefits. My 68- year- old mother- in- law has cracked feet — and they really act up during winters. Please give me a simple solution to help her out, without having to buy creams or lotions. a shower, and at night, before bedtime, is excellent as a quick repair treatment.
Is there any way in which I can give my hair a sleek look — very quickly — without using a blow dryer or a straightener?
— Ayesha Before shampooing, just apply olive oil on the hair and leave for 20 minutes. Shampoo. Add 1 cap of apple cider vinegar to a tumbler of water and give a final rinse. Towel dry hair and use a fine- tooth comb to comb. When the hair dries, it will look good and straight.
I am a 39- year- old man, working as an executive. My knuckles are very dark, and I feel embarrassed going to a pharmacy and asking for an antidote. Please tell me how I can get rid of the dark patches.
— Vivek MK The best way to lighten dark knuckles is to rub the skin of lemon on them; or if you can get lemon oil from the nutrition store or pharmacy, apply this several times a day on the knuckles; at night, leave the oil overnight and wear cotton gloves to keep the oil in place.
