1. Do people with oily skins also need to use a moisturiser?
Ans: Almost everyone needs to use a moisturiser. Moisturisers are, by and large, water based. Oily skins need water too, but a lot less than dry skins do.
2. What are age spots?
Ans: As people age, their cumulative exposure to the sun builds up. In the long run this tends to affect the skin. Dark spots appear on the exposed parts of the body - like arms and face. Age spots can occur to younger people - but this phenomenon is more common in the white race rather than the coloured people.
3. How can make-up brushes be cleaned?
Ans: Make-up brushes need to be cleaned just the way hairbrushes need to be cleaned. Or they will provide a breeding ground for bacteria. Soak the brushes in tepid water for a few minutes. Then use baby shampoo to gently wash them. Rinse off with tepid water. Air-dry them thoroughly. Dip them into alcohol to sterilise them.
4. How does one try to do away with dark circles under the eyes?
Ans: Genetics and health factors play an important part in dark circles. Use a concealer to lessen the effect of dark circles and make them less obvious. Maintain early nights, eat plenty of fruits and vegetables and drink lots of water. With time the dark circles could fade away.
5. How can I make my dry skin more oily?
Ans: Lack of water in your body will reflect on your skin. Drinking lots of water will certainly help to hydrate your whole system. But skin needs more than just water to get rid of its dryness. But rich creams and moisturisers are also needed to induce moisture into your skin and give you a glowing complexion. Give yourself a hot oil massage once a week.
