hello and welcome

Regarding the dosage all three can be started at the minimum dose of 1 tab daily.
However, I would not recommend any of the above meds without any evidence of you requiring such supplements.

I practice evidence based medicine. You can only be safely taking these drugs if you have a documented proven deficiency of the above vitamins and minerals.

Taking supplements for the sake of it can greatly alter your metabolism and produce a range of side effects, as these meds haven't been extensively studied w.r.t side effects and interactions.

I would advise you to consult your primary care physician before starting any meds or supplements.

Detailed Answer:
hello again,

For the hair loss you may initially require a change in your shampoo if there is increase dandruff and additional anomaly or scalp infection that is causing the hair fall. Shampoos like Ketovin and/or ciclomin may be started in consult with your doctor who will need to do a clinical exam first.

For your skin issues , a proper face wash like femme care and a sunblock may be advised , if there is significant pigmentation the further investigations may be considered to find the cause.

Glutathione use can be used in male infertility, cystic fibrosis and as a chemotherapy adjunct, other uses are not evidence based.
