Q: I am 37 years old and have hyperpigmentation spots all over my face and neck due to extremely bad acne scarring. I wanted to know if a fruit acid peel can help in reducing hyperpigmentation. Thanks! Madeeha
A:
Dear Madeeha, there are several types of chemical peels available. But a fruit acid peel is a superficial one and its effects are temporary and are likely to wear off. Whereas, deeper chemical peels might have a much lasting impact. However, they tend to have adverse effects as well and cannot be undergone without professional consultation. Seek advice from a doctor before starting treatment.

Q: I wanted to know if peeling lips are a sign of dehydration. I am 20 years old and my lips started peeling since winter and are still in the same condition. I felt that it could be because I’m not drinking enough water to keep me hydrated. Please tell me if that is the case. Fauzia
A:
Dear Fauzia, dehydration does cause lips to peel but as far as your problem is concerned, I think it’s more of a chronic issue, since it’s been happening since winter, which may point towards various causes. If regular lip moisturising does not help, you must talk to your doctor about it.

Q: I am a 28-year-old girl. I have really long hair but they have split ends. I really like my hair long so I don’t want to trim or cut them at any cost. Please tell me if I can get rid of split ends without having to trim or cut my hair at all. Ghazala
A:
Dear Ghazala, it is advisable to at least trim your hair if not cut them and shorten your length. But you can also follow this home remedy to tame those split ends. Mix an egg yolk with three tablespoons of olive oil and one tablespoon of honey. Apply the mask on the ends and length of your hair; let it rest for an hour, then shampoo and condition it thoroughly. Do it regularly and your hair will feel nourished and healthy.
