Hair

Hair thinning and balding is one of the major concerns for people. Today, premature balding is one of the most common sights.  To prevent hair fall, use well reputed products that help control hair fall. These products may be expensive but they can help. Take blood tests to ensure there are no other hidden health issues related to thinning hair.

One can even opt for a hair transplant, which is not only expensive but is known to be painful too. Though this process is effective, it takes time before you can flaunt a head full of hair.

In order to hide the hair thinning areas, try to part your hair on the other side or wear it up. When hair is bunched up into a pony or a bun, the thinness will not be obvious.

Hand Spots

To get rid of those spots that is mainly the result of sun damage, hydrate well. Ensure your hands never go dry. Carry a hand cream with you always, and keep massaging it into your skin from time to time.

One can even opt for laser treatments that can slowly but surely get rid of these spots.

For immediate remedy, wear gloves to hide the hands. There are many designs and models available. These will not only hide the spots but make you look classy and elegant too

Cracked Heels

Heel cracks can look ugly and even ruin the appearance of your expensive shoes. To reduce this crack, use a prescribed cream or lotion that helps such a condition. Massage the cream into your feet everyday without fail. Also buy comfortable shoes, even if it means compromising on your style statement.

Cortisone injections can help with severe heel pain and help you be back on your feet in no time. Though one can take these injections without a side effect, one cannot rely on these injections completely as it may lead to over dosage.

Wear shoes that cover your feet completely. Until the cracks reduce, try wearing boots or shoes.
