Q:Is it true that if you pluck a grey hair more grow back?
A: There are many myths in the beauty world and this is just another one. The truth is that if you pluck a grey hair, another one will grow back in its place. The follicle is still alive and the new strand, unfortunately, won’t grow back in your natural hair colour.
Sometimes it grows a little less grey, but it’s not guaranteed. However, you don’t have to worry that pulling out grey hair will result in more of them. One follicle won’t affect its neighbours. Be careful; if you keep plucking it out, you can damage the follicle and then hair will fail to grow.
Q: Is there any special care that I can give to chapped lips?
A: Stop licking it! When you moisturise your lips with your saliva, the water evaporates and leaves it withered and cracked. Saliva contains bacteria and irritants. You can end up with a rash.
The best option is to apply lip balm with aloe vera or shea butter in its formula every time you feel that your lips are dry. Avoid exfoliating them. Lips don’t have oil glands, so it will only make them drier.
Q: I want to look flawless in my wedding day. Do you have an important tip?
A: Oh yes! If you want your make-up to look perfect on your wedding day, the most important thing to do is to book a make-up trial some time before the big day. Select your favourite styles and take it to the artist who you hope to book for the special day. This is your chance to try out new styles, but don’t forget that you want to look glorious. The professional should respect your facial features. Applying a make-up fixer, like the one from Make Up For Ever which is very light, can keep your make-up in place throughout the day.
Q: What are the common things that we do that can be bad for our skin?
A: I’m not a dermatologist. However, there are a few habits that your complexion will be thankful for if you stop practising them. One of them is to stop picking or even touching your skin during the day. Your finger nails are full of bacteria that will contribute to the formation of zits.
Wash your hands before dealing with your face. For obvious reasons, don’t hurt your skin with your nails. Washing your face all the time can be more harmful than helpful. Even if you have a greasy complexion, washing it all the time will only stimulate your skin to produce more oil. It’s best to seek professional advice.
