10 Questions With Redah

Hey Ladies! It’s that time of the month again when I sit down with your most frequently asked questions and give you feedback on some things you might try to help some of your skin and hair care woes. Here goes nothing:

1. Strobing Do’s and Dont’s

– You don’t always need a dewy finish.
– For work you want to tone down your strobing.
– Use your highlighting stick as a strobe palette
– Blend your strobe with your foundation
– Always say NO to extra product!
– DO highlight your best features

2. Skin Care routine for oily skin in the winter

Now the only time during the year that someone with Oily skin might battle, well semi-oily skin is during the winter! So this is the time where you could do with some moisturising added to your morning & night time skin care routine. Ideally I suggest a face wash, scrub/exfoliate, toner and moisturising for both morning and night so if you can stick to that, it is you best bet.

3. Hair fall treatment

This is a questions I get asked over and over again. And somehow I feel it is important to address it every single time. Aloe Vera is great way to battle hair fall and encourage hair growth. Regular oiling also helps a lot in this way and you can try our protein hair treatments. Otherwise though you will be amazed but a good eating regime can help prevent hair fall too!

4. Dry skin routine in winter

– Always wash your face with cold water.
– Coconut oil is your best friend, you can use it as a moisturizer and even though it seems shiny at the beginning your skin should soak it in soon enough.
– Exfoliate, Exfoliate, Exfoliate
– Find yourself a pore perfecting toner
– Try sleeping with a humidifier

5. Dark underarms and neck

3 parts of baking soda
One part of water

Mix the contents in a glass bowl carefully and then apply the paste on the dark areas of the neck/underarms. Let it dry for 10 minutes and then rinse off with water. Repeat this remedy 3 times a day to lighten the complexion of your neck/underarms within a few weeks.

6. Brown spot remedies

Here are some natural remedies that help get rid of spots:

– Aloe Vera – Gently rub fresh aloe vera on brown spots and leave on for 30 minutes. Repeat twice daily and within a month you will see improvement.
– Apple Cider Vinegar – Dilute with water and apply to brown spots a few times daily. Do this for a few days until you get positive results.

7. How to get glowing fresh skin in winter

– Maintain a healthy morning and night routine.
– Lemon juice is a great way to keep your skin glowing
– Find yourself a moisturizer that suits you and if you have dry or combination skin, moisturize at least thrice daily

8. Solution for thin and oily hair

For thin, oily hair try and make sure you find a volumizing shampoo one that is oil free perhaps. Avoid conditioning shampoos as they weigh hair down and make them look thinner. For styling find a product that is oil free or grease free, again to keep your hair from feeling weighed down. Also avoid applying product to close to your scalp, this way your natural oil will stay locked in longer.

9. How to get rid of dark feet?

2 tbsp Besan (Gram Flour)
1 tsp Haldi (Turmeric)
2-3 Tbsp Milk
½ Tbsp Lemon Juice

Mix well and apply the smooth paste to your hands and feet, leave on for 15 minutes. Rinse with water. If you have dry skin don’t forget to moisturize! You can regularly apply this to keep your skin looking fairer, brighter and fresher.

10. Is Extenso better or Keratin? Or should I go with rebonding instead

I often have to tell people that all three of these treatments are very similar and give you similar results, they even last almost the same amount of time. Nonetheless I encourage you to meet a hair expert face to face so they can better assist you depending on your hair type. I would recommend Extenso/Keratin more than rebonding.

With Eid approaching, even though it is just a few days away, I hope some of these remedies will help you get through till Eid looking fresher and happier. Fall is on its way so the time is soon approaching where you will have to completely re think your skin and hair care routines, keep an eye out for those pesky issues that creep up on the turn of the season. Until next time, have a fabulous week and remember if you have questions, concerns or feedback – find me on Facebook!
