Model, Joey Mathews, says, “Make sure to see your beauty expert. Go for scrubbing, waxing and bleaching. And remove any blackheads on the back.” Joey warns that one should never apply lacto calamine solution on one’s back to hide black patches. “The colour will stand out and your back will look blotchy,” she says. Ashima of the designer duo Ashima-Leena, says, “Carrying off a backless outfit is not an easy job. One should make sure that one’s back is toned. But if you are hell-bent upon wearing a deep blouse then maneuver the top with thick embroidery at the back or use net to create the illusion of a bare back.”
Rita Gulati, Manager, Shahnaz Hussain, says, “A scrub every alternate day clears the skin of blackheads. Plus whitening creams, foundations, massages or even vegetable facials can be applied on the back. For the glow, one can use a gold foundation, which gives shimmering and luminous effect. A good massage would enliven the muscles and help in firming and giving shape to your back.”
