specially for Freckles and heart health.

Dear Hassan Mother of pearl is available in powdered form. You can have it after consultation. However, there are other herbal cures you can follow for Freckles: 1. Add half lemon in 2 to 3 teaspoon. Now massage your face with this mixture. It will cleanse your skin. After massage follow the next method. 2. Mash one banana and add 1 tablespoon of Honey into it. Apply this fruit mask on your face. Leave it for 10 minutes. Again massage your face until the mixture gets absorbed by your skin. Now rinse it off with cold water. To see results you have to be patient. Natural remedies take time to cure. Do the process at least for a month.
