I hope you are doing great. A few days ago I asked you on Facebook to leave your skin, hair and body care related questions under my post and so you did. So, here I am with answers to all your questions. I hope they’ll benefit you.
Please note that I am not a professional. All these suggestions are based on my personal experience and knowledge. Please do not try any of the recommended product or natural remedy if you are allergic to any of its ingredient.
Let’s get started!
Q1. How to fade acne scars? And make your skin smooth for a good foundation application? -Zaineb Hassan.
Ans. These are basically two different questions. To fade acne scars my best tip is to “Keep calm and wait” and they will eventually fade. A few tips to get rid of them a little faster is to use Lemon juice mixed with rosewater on the scars to lighten them. You can also use the DIY green tea and rose water toner to speed up the fading process. The face pack I swear by to get rid of acne and acne scars is Jo’s Organic Green tea and oats face mask. It is an all natural miracle face mask for acne prone skin.
To make your skin smooth for the foundation application I always suggest people to scrub your face prior to applying foundation. It sloughs away the dead skin cells and helps glide the foundation smoothly and evenly. I love St.Ives Fresh Skin Invigorating Apricot Scrub. Another tip is to moisturize your skin before applying foundation so it does not look patchy and applies like a dream.
Q2. Daily skin care routine? -Mishaim Ameen.
Ans. My daily skin care routine is very simple. You can read it over here. I also sometimes use Freeman Avocado and Oatmeal clay mask to give my skin some extra love. I switch between different kinds of masks and face treatments from time to time depending on my mood, but I don’t include it in my daily skincare routine.
Q3. How to make your hair thicker? -Rabab Zehra.
Ans. The thickness and thinness of your hair, chiefly depends on your natural hair type that you have since birth and partly because what your hair goes through. Oiling your hair daily can play a basic role in improving the health of your hair. I love Pure Desi’s Karwa hair oil. It is a miracle hair oil. Mixing castor oil in your daily use hair oil will promote hair growth and thickens your hair.
Before using heat on your hair make sure to use a heat protectant 5-10 minutes before using heat. It will prevent the hair shaft from getting damaged and thin. I would recommend using Tresemme Thermal creation heat tamer spray.
Q4. How to fade acne scars?? -Arsh Noor.
Ans. See answer # 1.
Q5. How to remove freckles? I have used a lot of creams prescribed by doctors but no results and my hair is so thin how they become thick? -Rabia Majeed.
Ans. To remove freckles and scars I would suggest following a strict skincare regimen and NEVER skip wearing sunscreen. No matter what the weather is, using a sunscreen is a must. I use Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry Touch Sunscreen SPF 45. It is easily available and works amazing. You can also use lemon juice mixed with rose water or tomato juice on the skin to fade freckles.
For hair thickness, see answer # 3.
Q6. How to get rid of pigmentation ? -Asma Sharif Ahmed.
Ans. There are infinite ways to get rid of the pigmentation on your skin. I have shared some on my blog as well. Check out my Ultimate Guide to skin whitening to help get rid of the unnecessary pigmentation and dark spots.
Q7. Skin care routine? How to shape Eyebrows at home? How to make hair thick naturally? How is conatural intense growth oil? -Tabee Asif.
Ans. I have recently shared my skin care routine, you can check it out over here. For hair thickening tips, see answer #3. As for Conatural intense hair growth oil, I haven’t used it but I have heard mixed reviews about it, but I love Pure Desi’s karwa hair oil for hair health, growth, shine and dandruff control.
Shaping eyebrows at home can be a little tricky. I would advise to get them done professionally for the first time. Once you’ll have a guideline your can use ready to use wax strips, cut into thin pieces and use them to remove the stray hair that grows around.
Q8. How to remove pores and creams for its treatment? -Hiba Khan.
Ans. There are numerous ways to shrink pores if not remove completely. The best way is to use “egg white face mask” and leave it on your face till it dries completely and wash off with tap water. Another way is to wash your face with cold water every time. Using warm water on the skin can open up the pores even more. Using products that give a cooling effect also helps shrink pores. I like Pond’s Smooth Pores, Pore Tightening Facial Foam. It is affordable and works well. Also, There are a number of pore minimizing primers like Benefit POREfessional to blur out your pores and prep your skin for makeup.
Q9. What are glowing skin and blemishes tips and tricks? -Limara Khan.
Ans. To have glowing and blemish free skin, it is must to strictly follow a skincare routine. You can check out my Skin care routine that I have shared recently. I am currently trying to get rid of blemishes so it might help you. You can also check out My Ultimate Guide to Skin Brightening.

Q10. Tips for dry skin specially in winter time? -Daneez Baloch.
Ans. The ultimate tip to tackle dry skin is to drink more water and moisturize, moisturize and moisturize! Using a heavier moisturizer can help you get rid of the dryness. I would suggest checking out The body shop Vitamin E range and their Oils for life facial oil. They are AH-MAZING!
Q11. The upper lips skin has become black due to bleach and threading, what to do? -Isma Munir.
Ans. Firstly, Chemical bleaching can be harsh and dangerous for the skin and can cause burn marks. To remove these marks you can always use Almond oil and Honey mixed together and use it daily until you get rid of the scar. For de-pigmentation, see answer # 6.
Q12. How to remove facial hair (Hair from chin cheeks etc)? Hair fall solution? -Noor Ul Huda.
Ans. There is no way to permanently remove your facial hair except laser hair removal. Other than that, using hot wax to remove facial hair is painless and doesn’t require a lot of time. It is my favorite way to get facial hair removed.
It is normal to lose a few strands of hair every day. It doesn’t mean your hair is unhealthy, but if the hair fall is drastic then definitely check out Pure Desi’s Karwa and Meetha Hair oil. It helps control hair fall, dandruff and split ends and makes the hair healthier and shinier.
Q13. My hair are thin and they are falling a lot how can I make them thicker and longer? -Towhida Sultana.
Ans. See answer # 3 and 12.
