Hi Roopashree. I am 46 years of age and I have following problems, kindly guide. 1. A double chin which looks ugly and makes me look 55-plus; how do I cure this or is there a safe surgery or non-surgical process? 2. I have white/grey hair since 25 years of age and the problem is even though I had applied the best dye in market such as L’Oreal, I got severe skin reaction and now I cannot apply hair dye. These two issues make me look much older than I am. Please help. Regards, Deepak Pandey

There could be multiple reasons for double chin -- either lack of exercise or just incorrect posture. Just get a body profile done to rule out any ailments like diabetes, etc.

If you are not following an exercise regime, start with 30-40 minutes of daily walks.

Alongside, start face yoga (consult a certified practitioner and do it for at least two months). Basic neck exercises and pranayams will also help.

For your greys, try home-made amla dye.

Soak whole dry amlas overnight. Boil them the next day. Then strain the water and retain the pulp.

You can apply this directly on your hair. Add powdered amla if you want a thicker consistency.

Apply this like a hair colour. After some time, wash it off with water only. Follow this up with an oil massage.

This might not give instant results but, over time, it will give a darker shade to your hair and slow further greying.

You can do this once every two weeks.

Other hair packs are coffee powder mixed with homemade aloe vera gel or potato juice mixed with aloe vera gel.

Sir I am now 53 yrs and grown bald in the front that really embarrasses me in office or whenever I give an interview it is worsened since I also wear specs. Kindly suggest something to reduce my embarrassment
Ans: I understand that hair loss and wearing glasses can sometimes lead to feelings of self-consciousness and embarrassment. Here are a few suggestions that may help you feel more confident:

Embrace your appearance: Remember that baldness is a natural occurrence for many men and doesn't define your worth or abilities. Embracing your appearance as it is can help boost your self-confidence. Focus on your positive qualities, skills, and experiences instead.

Consider a new hairstyle: If you're uncomfortable with your current hairstyle, you can try different haircuts that work well with thinning hair or a receding hairline. Consulting with a professional hairstylist who specializes in hair loss can provide valuable suggestions tailored to your specific needs.

Facial hair: Growing a beard or a well-groomed mustache can sometimes help divert attention from hair loss. Experimenting with different styles of facial hair may enhance your appearance and make you feel more confident.

Explore hair restoration options: If you are interested in addressing your hair loss, there are various options available. Hair transplants, scalp micropigmentation, and non-surgical hair systems are some of the methods you could consider. Consult with a qualified hair restoration specialist to discuss the most suitable option for you.

Confidence through accessories: Accessories such as hats, caps, or headscarves can be used to complement your style and help you feel more at ease in professional settings or during interviews. However, it's important to ensure that these accessories are appropriate for the occasion and workplace.

Rock your glasses: Wearing glasses is a common occurrence and should not be a source of embarrassment. In fact, glasses can be a stylish accessory that enhances your overall appearance. Opt for frames that suit your face shape and personal style. Additionally, keeping your glasses clean and well-maintained can also make a positive difference in how you feel while wearing them.

Remember, true confidence comes from within. Embrace your unique qualities and focus on your skills and achievements rather than fixating on any perceived physical shortcomings. Your professional competence and character are far more important than your physical appearance.
