Moyeen, Beautician, La Belle
I am very hairy and am facing a social stigma for it. I tried shaving
my arms but the hair grows back even thicker. There are flecks of
hair under my chin and it just looks horrible. I am a school teacher
and sometimes I see students laughing behind my back. No one wants
to go out with me due to my "hair" problems! Could you suggest
a cheap and easy way of getting rid of my body hair?
People can be so cruel…and I'm sorry to hear that you're suffering.
Shaving should be avoided completely. Switch to waxing your body using
warm wax. The hair will not grow back for at least 2-3 weeks. Repeated
waxing seems to lessen the hair growth as well. As for the hair growth
on your chin, you could thread it on a regular basis, or even consider
thermolysis, which is the permanent removal of hair. The downside
of this is that repeated sittings are required for each hair before
desired results, and it can be a little expensive as well. Dr. Saiful
Kabir sits at 17/A Rampura Skin Care, opposite Rampura Bazar. His
cell no. is 0189-211542. You can call him and have a word with him.
I would be very grateful if you kindly answer the following questions
related to my hair and skin.
My hair is dry and slightly wavy. However with regular use of conditioner,
the condition of my hair has more or less improved. I heard that deep
conditioning is very good for dry hair. Can you please give me the
name of a particular brand of deep conditioner suitable for my hair
type? Also, kindly mention the place where it is available.
I believe I have combination skin. The dry areas are so dry that I
have to apply some Johnson's Baby lotion even in this weather. I'll
be going to UK next month and it'll be very cold there at that time,
so could you please suggest a cold facial cream that I will be able
to use? I guess I should also mention that I have always used all
Johnson's Baby products all my life, and now I use Johnson pH 5.5
face wash and St. Ives apricot scrub (occasionally). Therefore, I
don't really know if any other brand will suit my skin. Please help.
Have a deep conditioning treatment at a salon, because it will be
accompanied by steam and ozone therapy, and you will reap its full
benefits. Once a month is quite enough. Continue the use of Johnson's
products, but start using the Johnson's pH 5.5 soft moisturising cream
as well, especially at night. If you feel that the skin still feels
dry, then add a few drops of Johnson's baby oil to the cream, mix
it in the palm of your hand and apply.
I am in desperate need of your help. I suffer from terrible depression
and I had a fever that lasted 15 days. I had to take dozens of medicines.
My skin has become rough and my hair has started falling. What will
do? I have Combination skin. I also want to do fair polish on my hands.
Please let me know where I can do it and what the prices are like.
Thanks a lot.
Come and have an Amla pack with hot oil for falling hair at La Belle.
Two sittings twice a week will definitely help. You can have a quick
10-minute facial to restore moisture to the face and, if you wish,
a fair polish as well. It costs Tk 250 for the face and neck, and
Tk 400 for full hands. After eating lunch, have Vitamin C (500 mg)
every other day, for two weeks to aid skin rejuvenation.
I m 21 years old. I have white patches on my chin, which is gradually
spreading on my cheeks. I want to know how to get rid of it. Is it
contagious? How do I prevent it from spreading?
Please refer to a skin dermatologist as soon as possible.
I would like some advice on the "Natural Breast enhancing cream".
Nowadays, I find that there are so many products in the market, but
I don't know which ones are the best. I would appreciate it if you
could supply me with some names, and also, please advice if using
these products would cause any harmful side effects.
I'm afraid I'm quite skeptical about the use and effectiveness of
these creams. If they worked, we wouldn't have a flat-chested female
Sadia! I am a 14-year-old girl who badly needs your help. My first
problem is that I have dry lips throughout the year. Some people have
this problem in winter, but I have it every day of every month. I
use Vaseline but it makes my skin oilier. My face is oily, but my
lips are dry. Can you suggest some remedies? My second problem is
that I have very oily skin and very dry hair. So, if I put oil on
my hair, my face gets oilier, and if I don't, my hair gets dry. What
can I do to stop this? I hope you will give me an effective solution.
Thank You. Choyon
Don't oil your hair; instead, use a conditioner every time after you
shampoo your hair. If possible, once a month, have a deep conditioning
treatment in a salon.
Apply petroleum jelly mixed with Johnson's baby oil on your lips only,
then apply a hot towel on your lips. Keep warming the hot towel by
soaking in hot water. Reapply petroleum jelly and repeat the process.
Do this for 15 minutes, then gently rub your lips. You will see that
the flaky skin comes off. Don't be too rough, or else your lips will
become red. Do this, as and when you need to, and always carry a chapstick
with you, and keep your lips moist by applying it as many times as
I am 19 years old. I want a haircut, which will suit me. My hair is
wavy and I have an oval face. What is the new look this Eid? Also,
I've been using Lady Diana Sunblock (SPF UV-40) for nearly a month.
My skin has become dark now. Please suggest the name of a good brand.
Layer your hair; the natural wave will add bounce and body to the
hair. Most people are straightening their hair and feathering it this
Eid, but you can go for a look that will suit you, irrelevant of what
the new look is. Use Lotus Sunblock. Try a fair polish to rid yourself
of a tan.
My lips are very dry and dark. I use chapstick but it doesn't help.
My complexion is becoming darker and dark circles are appearing around
my eyes. My hair is very dull and rough and full of dandruff. Can
you suggest a good treatment for this?
For dry lips, use the same treatment as stated above for Choyon. Have
an oil massage on a weekly basis. Apply oil, massage, rub a lemon
rind on the scalp, keep on for 15-20 minutes, then shampoo off using
Selsun Blue Anti-Dandruff shampoo. Use conditioner. Give a boost to
your complexion: do fair polish. Apply chandan, mixed with cucumber
juice everyday to rejuvenate your skin. You must rest enough; get
enough sleep everyday. Eat healthy, drink plenty of water, and put
yourself on multivitamins.
