    Hi…zinni :) mine is a combination type of skin, will it be beneficial for me to use it everyday…will Oatmeal effect my skin on regular use? is there even more tips to make skin Whitening?

    • http://www.stylecraze.com/members/zinniamukherjee/ Zinnia

      Yaar oatmeal pack should work, it’s actually really really good. But if any and i am stressing on “any” here natural thing or pack gets u rashes then that is DEFINITELY not for u. So u should give it a trial and error. Regular use is a must . Lemon is great but as for me it doesn’t suit my skin, but may suit urs skin. so u see, depends on skin types, it’s reaction on people’s skin. Sunscreen is must. You can try some anti oxidant capsules for a further glow but take in intervals like 2days gap ur having an antoxid capsule and at one day’s gap ur having a multi vit capsule. drink water (lots) , sleep well and eat healthy. Regular exfoliation with something that is real mild is also helpful (it has to be mild since am talking regular here) , hope these helps :) Thanks for the lovely comment :)
