  37. Hi Lisa,

    That may be due to sun tanning. i will suggest you to us e a sunscreen when you go in the sun. To get rid of the darkness on the hands the easiest remedy will be to apply some tomato juice and wash after 1 hour. This can be tried daily an hour before you for to bed. it gets dry within 5 minutes so won’t restrict you from doing work.

    You can use a scrub by mixing of rice powder and honey. This is best for face and body as well. Honey will nourish your dry skin.

    For the face pack, you can mix some oatmeal with honey and lemon juice. Apply o the face and wash after 20 minutes. This can be used 2 times in a week.

  45. Hi Pushpa,

    First of all, i will suggest you to scrub the face 2 times in a week. So that the skin pores are clean and there is no dead skin cells. I think you have oily combination skin type.
    An easy solution will be to take half teaspoonful of honey and half teaspoonful of lemon juice. mix them and apply on the face wash after 30 minutes. Do this daily and the face will be clearer again.

  46. Hi Lakshmi,

    A lot of us ace this problem that we get dark very soon when we go in the sun. For that I will advise you to use sunscreen so that your color doesn’t get darker.
    I am not aware about that skin cream so cant say for that. But you can try using roop mantra cream my mum uses that and that has worked well for her. You can also try Lotus whiteglow gel day cream.

  47. You are welcome Meenakshi, You can try Lotus whiteglow gel day cream. I like that cream due to its light texture.
