More Dos and Don'ts for you own benefit(Malaysian call it 'Petua')

These are some of Dato’ Siti Nurhaliza’s tips (petua) taken off and translated from the Koleksi Pantang & Petua Artis Hiburan Media magazine.

Tips for a smoother skin
Mix some honey with the white of an egg and put it on your face, and let dry for 30 minutes. Then you can rinse off.

For slimming
Get a few papaya leaves and boil it for the essence. Throw away the leaves and drink the water. Take two glasses a day. However, please be forewarned that the essence is very bitter.

To get rid of dandruff
Pound/ crush one ginger until it’s fine, then rub it into your scalp. Do it before bath time and then wash your hair.

Cure for colds
Drink some boiled rice water. Allow to cool first before drinking

Taking a bath directly after a meal, as this might cause your tummy to bulge. Instead, rest for half an hour or so before taking a bath.

Leaving your make up on when you go to bed. Make sure your face is thoroughly cleansed and moisturized before going to bed. If there are still remnants of make up on your face, this will cause your face to be oily and have acne problems.

Do not take too much oily or fatty food or you will have cholesterol problems

Do not take too much carbonated drinks as that will cause tummy problems

Do not bathe late at night as this will cause your body to age faster and your bones to decay faster as well.
