Remedy for skin and hair concerns

Detailed Answer:
Hello. Thank you for writing to us

I am dr. kakkar (dermatologist). I have noted your concern.
For dry, frizzy hair you may use a conditioner after shampoo e.g triglow conditioner or any other good conditioner.
For acne I would suggest clindamycin and benzoyl peroxide combination gel e.g clindoxyl gel. Apply twice daily after face wash.
Use a gentle cleanser for face wash which removes excess oil and does not leave your skin dry e.g Cetaphil gentle skin cleanser.
For undereye dark circles you may try Melalumin under eye serum. Its a roll on. You may use it twice daily.
Once your acne are under control you may use koiglo forte cream, twice daily for uneven skin tone.
Facial hair can be due to hormonal imbalance. If they are bothersome you may also screen for circulating hormones like Testosterone, DHEAS, LH, FSH, Prolactin as well as pelvic ultrasound.
