My waxed hair grows back quickly! Help!

Prema asks:
I use cold wax for removing superfluous hair from my legs. According to the instructions on the jar, it should be used once a month. But my hair has grown back within a week. Why is it so?

Reader's Query

When the hair is not pulled properly or when it has not been gripped firmly by the wax, it breaks just below the skin and surfaces within a week. Normally waxing lasts for about 4 to 6 weeks, depending on the individual hair growth rate. So, there is something wrong with your waxing method. Do read Waxing at home.

Managing Interruptions Effectively And Becoming More Productive

You are in the middle of an overseas conversation and your sister-in-law chooses that instant to ask for clarification of a recipe. In another instance, when you are exhausted after a hard day’s work and have just settled down on your sofa with a cup of coffee, you hear the doorbell announcing a neighbour’s friendly visit which could well run into 2 hours.

Interruptions, much as we may wish to rid ourselves of them, always find a way into our lives. In the days of yore they were blissful diversions. This was largely because time was aplenty, women were not working at outside jobs, gender roles were separate, there was little socializing and most important of all lifestyles were simple and unassuming. There was no rat race and keeping up with the Joneses.

Compare this with present times and you have people filling their day with hectic activity. Managing work and pleasure have become a delicate balancing act. All this naturally leaves little time to accommodate interruptions. Creative diversions which one may opt for voluntarily are different. Since they are undertaken out of choice, they are often a source of pleasure.

Become Slim With These Easy Tips

Who doesn’t dream of having a slim and shapely body? All those women with extra fat on their hips, arms and thighs, and those tyres around their waists have surely tried innumerable easy, and difficult, ways to shed that stubborn fat, and found it still there.

Don’t lose heart. There is still an easy way out. Sounds interesting, doesn’t it? So read on and find out.


Easy way of accommodating exercise in your daily schedule.

By “easy” way, I mean fitting the exercise schedules into hard work-load. Normally one has to keep aside those precious 20 minutes every day for exercising, sometimes, even more.

And after those workouts, you are tired, hungry and wondering why the extra fat doesn’t disappear.

One thing to make clear is that without exercise and a controlled diet, it is impossible to have that slim appearance. Don’t fool yourself by starving one day and eating for 2 the next! This does more harm than good. You won’t lose weight.  And crash diets (beware) are absolutely lethal for your skin.

Am I helping people too much?

Reader's Query

Vanita asks:
I am a 24 year old working woman. My problem is that I am far too kind! I am always trying to help the needy. All my colleagues, of both sexes, bring their problems to me and I help them as much as I can. I enjoy this.

Occasionally, I get the impression that people do not appreciate my help and that they do not really care about me. Then I feel bad and also angry. But then, in a few days, I go back to my old ways.

Is something wrong with me? Please advise.

Am I helping people too much?
Do not go out of your way to help people, especially the unappreciative and exploitative kinds. Learn to have boundaries.
