  1. hi turmeric powder has any side effects nd is it any harmful to men’s beard by applying it on face

  2. hi iam daily using a pack with milk nd gram flour.can it lighten the skin complexion? nd is it good for oily skin?

  3. Yes, gram flour and mild is a good combination to lighten the skin tone and to remove the sun tanning.

  4. No it doesn’t but if you are still skeptical try applying neem powder or just fresh neem leaves paste.

  5. ma’m can I apply gramflour milk face pack and tomato pack day by day alternatively to get earlier results?i mean doing like that is anythng harmful to face

  6. Yes, you can. No this does not have any harmful effects or side effects.

  7. ma’m iam applying daily curd,turmeric powder,gram flour iam getting black dots which were looking like moles.Plz tell me any solution for this

  8. In that case, just try besan with turmeric pack. This will help in the removal of those spots.

  9. ma’m may be u didn’t got my question. after applying besan turmeric yogurt combination pack on my face and neck iam getting moles on my cheeks nose and neck.actually in past days I didn’t have any moles on that place bt after applying this pack for 10 days I got moles on those place so please suggest me to overcome this or any other solution

  10. Hi Vikas, In that case do not use this face pack. Apparently, you have sensitive skin type. It would be better if you try to steam the face for 4-5 minutes once in a week and scrub the face 2 times in a week. This will help to get rid of the tiny black dots. I had such dots near my chin and these treatments helped me. Also try to apply tomato juice on the face for 15 minutes which will further help.

  11. k to get rid of those dots now iam applying yogurt tomato oats combined pack daily in the it safe or will I got dots with this pack tooo.applying daily is safe or can I apply weekly 2 times

  12. Hi Vikas,

    You should not use yoghurt as I think that is causing that problem, so just apply tomato juice with oats. It is safe and ideal for all the skin types. You can try that daily. But dont forget to scrub the face 2 times in a week.

  13. k what can I use for scrubbing ma’m

  14. Any store bought scrub like the everyuth walnut face scrub etc will work.
