Q My hair is thin­ning on the front. I’m only 25! I thought hair loss was a men’s prob­lem. Why is this hap­pen­ing? A Hair loss oc­curs in as many as 45 per cent of women, so it’s ac­tu­ally quite a com­mon prob­lem. Ac­cord­ing to Dr. Corinne Jouanique, los­ing about 50 strands of hair a day is nor­mal but any­thing more is ex­ces­sive. Hair loss can stem from stress, pol­lu­tion, hor­mone changes, and sud­den weight loss. Depend­ing on the cause of your hair loss, there’s a wide range of treat­ments you can opt for from vi­ta­mins to top­i­cal med­i­ca­tion. Q There is a lot of hype when it comes to fruits that are good for your health but I’ve no­ticed that cran­ber­ries seem to be par­tic­u­larly on trend. What kind of health ben­e­fits do they pro­vide? A Cran­ber­ries re­ally are a won­der fruit, and their nu­mer­ous health ben­e­fits are tes­ta­ment to that. They’re jam packed with vi­ta­mins like vi­ta­min C (which is re­ally awe­some for your skin!) and fi­bre, help­ing to lower the risk of uri­nary tract in­fec­tions, pre­vent cer­tain types of can­cer, im­prove im­mune func­tion, and de­crease blood pres­sure. It’s re­ally easy to in­cor­po­rate this into your diet. Just opt for cran­berry juice or dried cran­ber­ries, like the ones by Ocean Spray. Q My feet are re­ally dry even though I moisturise of­ten! Why is this? A The skin on our feet is nat­u­rally dry as it doesn’t have oil glands un­like the rest of the body. Symp­toms of dry feet can in­clude itch­i­ness, red­ness, and rough skin. This can be caused by fac­tors such as ex­ces­sively hot show­ers, low hu­mid­ity, med­i­cal con­di­tions, and long pe­ri­ods in the sun. The best treat­ment is to keep mois­tur­is­ing and to use mois­tur­is­ing soaps. Also, re­mem­ber to stay hy­drated!
