    It was a typo!

    Srimathi,

    You are right. It is BERTOLLI brand from Italy. I made a typo in my earlier post and it is corrected now.

    Good to hear that you get that brand in India too and your hair has improved with using Olive oil.

    Regards,

    Rathi

    what is good for hair is also good for face and arms...i remember as a child my father had a tin ordered from italy thru a friend and that time iwas a grt fan of femina and they had given a receipe to heat the olive oil in a table spoon over a candle and apply to the scalp and tie around with a hot water dipped and wrung out turkey towel for 1/2 hr before a nice bath...all were shouting what r u doing in the bath so long so till date i must say i have a very good crop at 54 and thanks to the skin which has had plenty of oil massages...and lakme makeup when applied thin with a little water can remove all blemishes and sun tan in a jiffy withing a month u come to know the difference...hope been of help...regards..sunkan..

    relief from tan

    Lakshmi,

    I am sure Sundari will tell u more on Lakme foundation.

    If u want to get relief from sun tan, apply curd/yougurt or mashed banana. These are good home remedies for tan.

    cheers
    Vidya

    try this

    Lakshmi,

    For arms, smash a few slices of cucumber with skin, mix that juice with lemon juice and try applying. Do a test patch first, since u do not want uneven bleach. Dont do if u r pregnant.

    For cooling effect, brew ordinary tea (without milk or sugar). Chill the black tea well. Dip a hand kerchief and place on your arms. Do this a few times.

    Hope this helps. My cousin in madras has solar allergy, she used to do these and it worked. Hope it helps you.

    yes lakme is a foundation cream u get in the market for all shades...i am also very prone to suntan....i know all the ladies r coming up with plenty of natural suggestions pl do follow that also on sundays and other holidays....but this cream is a base for the make up of woman...but u can mix it with a little water and make the consistancy more transparant so as to give u a light coating and not make u look made up for some occassion....as u keep using u will lighten slowly and all blemishes also vanish....regards..sunkan
