We often turn to home remedies for beauty problems like pimples, dandruff etc. instead of rushing to a skin specialist. Many of them are passed on from our grandmas to our mothers and then to us. Since they are tried and tested, we often rely on them without questioning their efficacy. So what’s the real deal on home remedies? We asked Dr Rashmi Shetty, expert dermatologist, about what she thinks and here’s what she has to say. Watch what the doctor says, you’ll be surprised with her answers. She even suggests tips on selecting the right one and what suits your skin. Whether you believe in home remedies or not, the fact is using them for certain beauty woes could help. However, the home remedies may not work in certain cases, and Dr Shetty also explains what to do in such cases. Also read – home remedies for every skin problem. Tips to keep in mind
- If you experience itchiness or redness after applying a home remedy, wash your face and don’t use it again as it probably does not suit your skin.
- Don’t store homemade pastes for too long as they don’t have preservatives and may not last for a long time. It is best to make them fresh as and when needed.
- Don’t expect miraculous results in the first go. Use them for a couple of days or weeks to see results. Also read – how to choose the right face wash and cleanser.
