Q: Hi! I have naturally curly hair and they are extremely dry. I use a regular anti-dandruff shampoo, which helps reduce dandruff but as far as dryness is concerned, I don’t know what to do. Please help! Sadia
A:
Dear Sadia, since your hair is naturally curly, it is naturally dry and prone to damage, which is why you need to use a sulphate-free shampoo. Don’t forget to apply conditioner after shampoo; conditioning dry curly hair always helps in keeping the hair soft. Also, oil your hair weekly; use coconut or mustard oil, for these oils leave your tresses soft and smooth.

Q: Hello! I am a 15-year-old guy. I have recently started noticing a lot of pimples on my face. They do not hurt much but are really scary to look at. My face looks really bad with these pimples and I feel embarrassed among friends and family. Please tell me how to get rid of them? Yasir
A:
Dear Yasir, the pimples on your face are part of puberty. You are in your teens and this may last for a few more years. There is nothing to be embarrassed about, as many other teenagers your age must be suffering from the same problem. Keep your skin clean and wash your face twice daily with a good quality face wash, and avoid excessively oily food, as it probably triggers oil glands on your face.

Q: I am 24 years old and have extremely dry and chapped lips. It is not just the winter season when they are chapped, they are like this throughout the year. Please tell what could be the reason and how can I avoid the dryness. Erum
A:
Dear Erum, since you are susceptible to dry and chapped lips throughout the year, it could due to allergies or the lack of water intake. Lips allergies could be caused because of your toothpaste, the extract of citrus-based fruits or immense sun exposure. Keep yourself hydrated all the time, drink as much water as you can throughout the day, as that will help fight the dryness. Also, keep your lips moisturised using a lip balm that contains SPF, in order to protect them from the sun.
