WHAT’S YOUR QUERY?

Q: I am 19 years old and have blackheads in the T-zone. It’s really annoying as my skin is delicate; marks are evident whenever I try to get rid of them. Please tell me what can be done. Mehr
A:
Dear Mehr, it is due to the presence of tiny fine hair in the area. Also, the fine movements as well as the creases make the skin more prone to pore clogging. Use an over the counter face wash with salicylic acid to help open blackheads and hygiene is also another important factor; if none of this works, visit a dermatologist.

Q: I am 28 years old and have been dying my hair for the past 10 years. I have bleached them too in the process throughout the years. Also, I simultaneously had this issue of hair fall. Please tell me if they are interlinked? Fareeha
A:
Dear Fareeha, yes, they are interlinked for sure. Even though it has been years since you are dying your hair, it is better that you consider reducing the frequency to avoid further hair issues .

Q: I am a 49-year-old woman. I have brittle and flaky nails ever since I hit menopause. Please tell me if this is normal or is this because of some vitamin deficiency. Rukhsar
A:
Dear Rukhsar, it could be because of menopause; however, you should visit a dermatologist who can further diagnose the exact reason after a thorough check-up. Protect your nails as much as you can. Consume multivitamins; avoid regular usage of nail colour and remover, avoid prolonged exposure to water and apply a moisturiser on your hands and nails.
