The Natural Way
I do not really have a detailed skincare routine. Thankfully, I have inherited my mother’s good skin. However, one thing I am very particular about is removing make-up properly after my shows with a good cleanser. I use coconut oil on my hair and leave it on for a few hours. Then I apply a pack of flat beer mixed with beaten eggs, and cover my hair with a shower cap. After 90 minutes, I wash it off for shine and bounce. u

I am a 28-year-old woman. Is there anything I could make with natural ingredients to take care of my feet? Monsoons make them look scary at the end of a hard day! Could you suggest a foot soak/bath and also maybe a nice scrub and moisturising agent?

Soak your feet in warm water to which you have added some glycerine, 3 tbs milk powder, and some herbal shampoo. Also add some Epsom salt to this. Using a pumice stone, scrub your feet to remove dead skin. Massage the feet with olive oil and wipe with a hot towel. A combination of 3 tbs sea salt mixed with 5 tbs olive oil and 4 drops of essential oil of eucalyptus or peppermint is excellent to ‘wake up’ tired feet.

My daughter is 11 years old. Recently she had developed a bad heat rash all over her back. The rash is gone now but it has left marks. What can I do to get rid of these with natural ingredients?

Mix honey, sandalwood and a little milk and apply as a pack on her back. When it dries, wash off with cold milk and water.
