  1. Hi, I downloaded the beauty button app but I can’t get past the which part of the world are you living in section. Ive tried to put in city, state, county. And even continent. But it just doesn’t allow me go to the next page, nor does it prompt a selection. Any suggestions on how to get past this would be appreciated.

  5. Hi, I have recently started reading your blog and its very informative 🙂 needed your suggestion on something.
    I have large pores on my cheeks and a few pimple scars what product or treatment would you recommended for the same.
    I have done medication, homeopathy, chemical peel nothing worked! Though I hardly get pimples now.
    Thank you

    1. Hi Troshna, the thing about large pores and scars is that you won’t see immediate results. It takes months, even years sometimes of continuous care. So if anything offers overnight results, don’t trust it. Here’s what you should do: treat your skin like a piece of very expensive silk. You would not wash it with harsh detergents or scrub it right? Same thing. Be very gentle with your skin. Follow a regimen day and night. Use a gentle facewash, a nourishing toner (like Rosewater), a good quality moisturizer (this may appear to make your pores look bigger, but over time you will see them shrink) and a sunscreen to protect your skin. Do this regularly for a few months and take closeup pics so you can see the change. Beauty Button is an app you could use to help you follow a regimen and stay on track. All the best!

    1. Hi! Thank you for downloading the app. I understand your dilemma. It’s best to try products that contain soothing ingredients that won’t make you sweat like aloe gel, chamomile, cucumber, Rosewater. These cool the skin, calm it down, prevent flare ups and give it a glow. For product recommendations, I suggest you follow the app as it gives product suggestions based on not just your skin type, but also age and location. If you have any more questions, let me know 🙂

    1. Hi!!! Thank you for your encouraging words! 🙂 For your hair, I suggest you Oil it regularly (3 times a week). The massage really stimulates blood circulation in your scalp, which promotes hair growth. The oil itself nourishes the root and moisturizers the strands making them stronger and less likely to break. If u have dandruff, oiling with olive oil also helps reduce the flakes. One thing to remember: you will notice A LOT of hairfall each time you Oil your hair. Don’t panic, you’re not going bald. These are weak strands that would have anyways fallen off – they are now just falling out together and appear scary. Over time (In 3 weeks) this will have really reduced and you will feel tiny hair growing on your scalp. Another tip is to cut your hair. When hair is too long, it pulls the root (due to its weight) and weakens it. This leads to hairfall. So it may be a good idea to get a haircut! Lastly, you can try taking a fish oil capsule (like cod liver oil). It helps strengthen hair. But check with your doctor before doing so. All the best! And let me know how it goes 🙂

    1. Hello! I’m super sorry I missed answering your question.
      For hair thinning, I believe you need to stimulate the scalp and get blood flowing properly so that the hair follicle can get stronger and thicker.
      I’m a strong believer of oiling hair regularly. Start oiling your hair 3 times a week for about a month. Massage is super important. You need to use gentle but firm circular motion to get the blood glow going. And do it for atlas 5-10 mins.

      At the start, you may see a lot of hair fall. Please don’t panic. That’s normal. These hair were going to fall off anyways and just did so at once since you massaged your scalp. After week 4, you will notice that the hair fall is much less. If you touch your scalp you will also feel tiny new hair growing. Now you can oil your hair just twice a week.

      When your hair is oiled, you need to wash it twice with a shampoo (I like milder shampoos from Forest Essentials). But always follow the wash with a good conditioner that will soften the cuticles and smoothen frizz.

      I prefer letting my hair air dry.

      Now which oils should you use? I alternate between olive oil, almond oil, gutti ka tel and coconut oil. That way I get all the benefits and nutrients each oil has to offer.

      As for supplements, I pop a cod liver fish oil capsule every day (Seven Seas). Before you do this, please consult your doctor.

      All the best and let me know how it goes.

  9. I love all ur blogs, esp. The one on no make up on ur wedding day….
    You are doing a great job, guiding us to b more confident in our own skin. But the products that u recommend are quite expensive.
    I have darkness around my lips n eyes, am using Himalaya under eye cream and biotique serum, but can’t see a visible change.
    Can u please suggest some thing or if u can tell some natural home remedies, using castor oil, vit E oil, coconut oil etc ( as these are also rich in antioxidants, read on Google ) or other things that are less expensive.

    1. Hi!! Thank you so much for reading my blog 🙂 For your eyes, I suggest Neutrogena Rapid Wrinkle Repair Eye Cream as well as Serum. Don’t be thrown away by the word “wrinkle”. Both these products contains retinoids that brighten the skin tone, reduce marks and as a bonus, prevent wrinkles! I wouldn’t apply castor or coconut oil directly on my face as they can clog pores and make you breakout. You could try this face pack on your face (not eye area) 2-3 times a week: besan + sandalwood powder + turmeric powder + Rosewater + milk + 1/2 tsp sugar. First make the paste and add sugar in the end so it doesn’t melt. Now massage it gently as a scrub for 1 min, then leave it on for 10 minutes and rinse. This will visibly lighten and brighten your skin tone. And do let me know how it goes!

      1. Serum can b applied during daytime also, n if so, then can we apply sunscreen over serum.
        Serum will help in reducing darkness around lips too, or shall I apply eye cream around my lips too.
        Also suggest a good day and night cream, I bought lotus nutritimoist, but it makes my skin oily.

        1. Yes, Serum can be applied in the day too! A brightening serum like Olay White Radiance brightening intensive serum or Neutrogena Fine Fairness Serum are packed with active ingredients that go deep into your skin to correct its tone. I suggest using that around your lips too. Neutrogena Hydroboost is a gel moisturizer that’s hydrating and light at the same time. You can use it day and night. Sebamed Clear Face Care Gel and Forest Essentials Light Hydrating Gel Pure Rosewater are great too!

  10. Hey, What is the difference between ‘ Top Rated’and ‘ most recommend ‘ They seem like they should be one in the same? Secondly why does my regime not recommend a toner? Is that for only some skin types. Lastly is sunscreen absolutely necc if my exposure is only as I travel to and from work?Lastly why does Singapore seem to make your skin so much more tough and almost haggard than cooler drier climates? Thanks

    1. Hi Jessica, great questions! Here are the answers:
      1. Beauty Button recommends 3-4 products for your skin type and issue. However there may be 20 products that will work well too! You can easily access these through the Top Rated.
      2. Different regimens have a combination of different products to best suit your needs. Your current regimen may not really need a toner, which is why it doesn’t appear.
      3. Sunscreen is an absolute must! Even if it’s for a few minutes of exposure. That’s because sun damage is collected over time. A little bit every day adds up! Even if you’re in a vehicle, office/home, cloudy day, etc. sunlight reaches you through windows, clouds… so u need to be protected. As the ozone hole gets bigger, so is the need for sunscreen.
      4. Singapore is located on the equator. This means the sunlight is direct. It also has a tropical climate – which means more humidity. The varying temperatures (hot outside and cold air conditioning inside) also adds to the problem. Which is why your skin goes out of whack. What you need to do is prep it to fight damage before it happens. By religiously following a morning routine, you’re protecting your skin from the damage that may accumulate over the day, while the nighttime regimen undoes any damage that may have occurred. Keep at it for a month and you will see your skin starting to ‘behave’ itself 🙂
      Hope this helps!

    1. Hi Neha, for a glow, you need a good serum to use before your moisturizer. A serum really helps improve radiance because it’s packed with antioxidants and goes much deeper into your skin than a moisturizer ever can. Look for a serum with Vitamin C as that fades spots and gives skin a glow. I really like The Body Shop Vitamin C Skin Reviver Serum. Olay White Radiance Brightening Intensive Serum is good too. Always follow a serum with your moisturizer as it ‘locks in’ the serum. Try Neutrogena Hydrobooost or Clinique Moisture Surge. Both are very hydrating and really improve your skin’s Moisture Barrier. As for food, drink coconut water every morning (this really helps skin), eat lots of different fruits before 12 noon (gives skin vitamins), drink 2-3 cups of green tea (gives skin antioxidants), have curd as an afternoon snack (probiotics keep your gut healthy – which keeps skin healthy) and 2-3 liters of water all through the day. Otherwise eat what you normally eat. Also, exercising every day improves your blood circulation which gives your skin a lit-from-within glow. Even a 1 hr walk daily will make a big difference. Remember to always wash your face BEFORE and AFTER you exercise so that your pores remain clean. All the best for your wedding!

    1. Hi Manpreet! Sooo happy you like Beauty Button! 🙂 In my experience, walking daily (for an hour) really improves my complexion! I also believe in adding lots of antioxidants in my diet in the form of fresh fruits. First thing in the morning, drink hot water with the juice of a lime squeezed in. It really helps flush out the toxins. Before bed, drink hot water with grated ginger, lime juice and coriander. It also helps clear your skin from the inside. And lastly, have a lot of probiotics. They keep your gut healthy and that translates into clearer skin.
