Sadia Moyeen Beautician,
Dear Sadia Moyeen,
I am a regular reader of your column and like it very much. I am 21
years old and my skin is oily. When I was 12 I started to have blackheads
and pimples on my face. I had a very bad habit of squeezing them.
don't have blackheads or pimples now but have a lot of open pores on
my skin. These look very bad and my skin also looks old.
you please suggest any home remedy for the open pores on my cheeks and
nose? Can ozone therapy work for this problem?
am thinking about purchasing an electric hair remover machine to solve
my unwanted hair problems on my legs and face. Will it be safe and effective?
also have a lot of gray hair. Please suggest a home remedy without a
dye for this problem. Please, please, please help me out. I am suffering
Apply a pack made with 'Multani Mitti', sandalwood powder and a few
drops of rose water mix with ice water and keep it on until its dry.
Before removing dampen it again with water and massage off gently with
cold water. Do this every alternate day. On the days that you are not
using the pack, rub an ice cube on your face before applying make up.
electric hair remover is fine to use on your legs but I'd avoid the
face if I were you. Skin on the face is finer and more delicate than
the rest of the body and must be treated gently. How about hair removing
cream? Or good old threading?
hair at 21? How about using Henna. It'll give you a nice reddish tint
to your hair and condition at the same time?
I am 27 year old lady. The problem is, there is a very small blotch
on my face for the last few months. Now it is becoming more noticeable.
How can I get rid of it? I have bags under my eyes, which do not look
nice. Can I make them look normal? I am also loosing my hair on the
front of my head. What about hair replacement, will it work in this
case. How can I get rid of these things? Would you please give me some
suggestions to solve these problems.
Give me more information about the 'blotch' on your face - how big is
it, what colour? Is it darker or lighter than your skin? It could be
pigmentation in which case protect your skin from the sun and let a
dermatologist check if out. Any sudden changes in skin pigmentation,
moles or patches should always be looked into by a professional.
bags at your age indicate that you are not getting enough sleep or that
you work too hard without rest. Soak cotton wool pads into cucumber
juice, cool in a refrigerator and apply daily.
replacement at 27? Definitely not. Do you pull back your hair and tie
if tightly? If yes, loosen up; do you have dandruff? There could be
several reasons for hair fall, but it must be remembered that, hair
grows back. This cycle of hair replacement carries on naturally all
year round. If your hair is long get the weight off the trout by shortening
the front. Apply a mixture of egg, yogurt oil twice a week, keep on
for ½ an hour and shampoo off.
This may not be the right column for guys, but I'm writing being helpless.
As for a 20 year old guy this is the first time I've started keeping
long hair. But the problem is my hair is getting really rough, and fuzzy
along with losing too much hair. I don't want to cut my hair short or
get bald as some of my well-wishers have advised. So what are my options?
What kind of hair-care product do I need to use, and where do I find
If you keep long hair, you're going to have to invest some time in taking
care of it as well. Use a conditioner after every shampoo to soften
and untangle your hair. Brush out gently without tugging and pulling.
Oil your hair once a week, massaging for a few minutes before washing
off, and I'm sure you'll have locks which even the girls will envy.

I am a Diabetic patient for the last 20 years and I never had any dental
problems (pain). Recently I found that some of my teeth have become
loose. Will a Diabetic lose his or her teeth sooner than a non-Diabetic?
Many factors contribute to the loss of teeth in someone who has diabetes.
A poor healing response combined with gum disease and the destruction
of bone anchoring the teeth in place may result in teeth that become
loose and eventually fall out. Although diabetics have no control over
their response to infection, they can practice good oral hygiene habits
(brushing and flossing). Removing plaque will reduce or eliminate infection.
Ensuring the diabetes is controlled (taking insulin, altering diet)
is also a way of decreasing the risk of tooth loss.
It should be noted that a diabetic might have excellent oral hygiene
and still suffer from gum disease and bone loss. In that case, I strongly
recommend consulting a Dental surgeon who is specialized in Diabetes
field. We feel proud to inform you that the department of Dentistry
of BIRDEM hospital has special facilities with skilled Dental surgeons
to treat and manage Diabetic oral health
Why should wisdom teeth be removed if they haven't caused any trouble?
When is the best time to have wisdom teeth removed?
Impacted wisdom teeth are almost certain to cause problems if left in
improper positions. This is particularly true of the lower wisdom teeth.
Such problems may occur suddenly and often at the most inconvenient
It is now recommended by specialists that impacted wisdom teeth be removed
between the ages of 14 and 22 years whether they are causing problems
or not. Surgery is technically easier and patients recover much more
quickly when they are younger. What is a relatively minor operation
at 20 can become quiet difficult in-patients over 40. In addition, the
risk of complications increases with age, and the healing process is
located on Gulshan Avenue is a beauty parlour and saloon that has made
quite a name in the whole Dhaka beauty parlour scene. With a very French-looking
blue shade that shades their door from the glaring sun, this beauty
parlour has quite a classy look and is suited to the needs of its customers.
The Bliss staff diligently work with their customers till late in the
evening as they wait their turns while the dryers keep buzzing.
The parlour's expertise lies in its hair colouring and hair cuts. The
staff is polite, efficient and well-trained and any complaint is immediately
looked into. The demand for their service is high and things get busier
at the peak seasons such as Eid.
Customers give a satisfied seal of approval on the parlour but do cringe
about the prices, which may be quite high for people with limited budgets
for such things. Nevertheless quality comes with a price and on that
account Bliss should not be singled out.
So go pamper yourself!
do realize that this might turn out to be an article filled with quite
an appreciable amount of symbols like "!@#$%^&*~`" but
the thing is, swearing seems to be a part of life. If you are not
saying it, you are certainly thinking it. How about when somebody
cuts into line in front of you, or takes that glass of coke from the
counter that was meant for you, or wins over the girl/boy you had
your heart set upon, or even when you are not excused from an exam
despite the amount of time and effort you have spent on trying to
make up an excuse instead of studying; I know the last example does
not really seem fair, but then as one of my favorite saying goes "Life
is a B!*#$ and then we die".
Most people raise their eyebrows when they hear swearwords being used,
despite the fact that at times they use the same words themselves.
I think that using swearwords vents some of your anger when you are
really pi$$ed - hey, at least swearing at people in anger is better
than hitting them, where would humanity be if one started dishing
out blows whenever infuriated. Wait, give me a minute to think - got
it - there are people who do just that. They get angry and hit the
object of their anger.
One might say that cursing (not the magical spell type, rather the
sacrilegious one) equals vulgarity and it only befits the mouth of
rickshawalas, but you and I both know that this is far from the truth.
We all use bad language at one time or the other. Most of the time
we give vent to it by saying words which, if heard by our parents,
would result in our mouths being washed out with soap.
We are not saints, ergo we sin-with blasphemy being one of the many
that we commit. You know what, even though we all do it, maybe there
should be something like profanity etiquette, where the number one
rule would be "Never swear in front of elderly people and neka
people"- otherwise they would all be like 'Oh my god, I cannot
believe you said that, how could you' (imagine that being said in
a very whiny voice, as befits the neka people). The second being,
if you inadvertently say something you did not consciously intend
to say (this usually happens when you are in front of those you do
not know very well) then do apologize for it-nobody likes a double
serving of rudeness, first the cuss words then the utter lack of decency
to apologize for them. It is all right, I suppose, to say whatever
you want when you are among friends, but using bad language here,
there, and all around-now that is a definite no-no.
I am not really sure what made me write about profanity; but in the
end all I hope for is that you are not muttering any swear words under
your breath after this piece of writing of mine.
