Q) I am 17 years old and my skin is oily. I have small pimples all over my face. When I use facewash, it reduces a bit.  Please suggest some home remedies.

A)

Wash your face twice a day, morning and night, with a medicated soap. Then wipe with an astringent lotion, using cotton wool. Astringent lotion will be available at a cosmetic store. Mix a little rose water with sandalwood paste and apply on the face. Wash off after 15 minutes. Or, boil neem leaves over a low fire. Cool and strain. Make a paste of the leaves and apply daily on the face. Wash it off with plain water after half an hour. Mix multani mitti with sandalwood paste and rose water into a paste and apply on the face twice a week. Wash it off when it dries. Avoid creams and moisturisers. Use only oil-free products. Include fresh fruits, raw salads, sprouts and yogurt in your daily diet. Drink six to eight glasses of water daily. Add the juice of a lemon to a glass of water and drink it first thing in the morning.
