Homoeopathic cream ANTIMARKS CREAM ( BIOVALLEY) Apply twice daily in circular fashion Lemon Juice A quick and easy solution is lemon juice. Lemons have vitamin C that can lighten dark spots on your face. It’s easy to apply. 1. Put some fresh lemon juice on a cotton ball and rub it directly on the affected skin area. 2. Allow it to dry and then wash it off with plain water. 3. Continue applying this dark spot removal home remedy for at least two weeks to get the desired result. If you have delicate or sensitive skin, you can dilute the lemon juice with plain water, rosewater, or honey. You can also use lime juice to get rid of black spots, applying it in the same manner as described above. 2. Buttermilk Buttermilk is also beneficial in getting rid of dark spots. Like lemon juice, it also helps fade blemishes and black spots but without causing burning sensation. 1. Take four teaspoons of buttermilk. 2. Add two teaspoons of fresh tomato juice. 3. Mix the two ingredients (both have excellent bleaching properties) and then apply. 4. Wash it off after 15 minutes. The lactic acid in milk too, will gradually reduce skin pigmentation, and brighten and tone your overall skin complexion. So, if you do not have buttermilk, simply apply soak a cotton ball in milk and dab it directly on your spots. Leave it on for about 10 minutes and then wash it off Put milk on a cotton ball and dab it directly on your spots. Repeat this procedure twice daily for four to five weeks. You can also prepare a solution by mixing milk and honey and apply the solution to your dark spots, leaving it on for 10 minutes.

Oily Skin

Oily skin

Honey can help reduce excess oil on the skin’s surface, clear pores and even prevent wrinkles. Honey has moisturizing properties that nourish the skin and keep it sufficiently moisturized without making it oily. Also, the natural antiseptic property of honey is highly beneficial for acne-prone oily skin.
•Apply a thin layer of honey over your face and leave it on for 15 minutes. Then wash your face. Do this twice daily.
•You can also mix a small amount of ground almonds with honey. Gently massage the paste onto your oily skin to remove oil and dead skin cells. Then wipe your face with a warm cloth to open up the pores. Do this once a week.

Saffron or “kesar” is the ultimate answer to all skin problems. It has been used for ages as an important ingredient for skin care. This precious spice has amazing anti-bacterial properties that help in purifying skin from infection causing germs. It also helps in lightening suntan, skin spots and hyperpigmentation, improves the quality of skin and renders a healthy glow to it. The lactic acid present in buttermilk works effectively in lightening brown and black spots by removing the dead skin cells and revealing the healthy skin underneath. The benefits of aloe vera for skin and hair are well known. It works as an effective natural remedy to cure various skin problems and its use as a medicine can be traced back to 6000 years ago. Its powerful anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial property helps in treating skin infections, pimples, and acne. It also removes dead skin cells and encourages the regeneration of new skin cells that lightens dark spots and pigmentation. It also works a nourishing natural moisturizer that hydrates the skin and prevents moisture loss to give it a fresh and rejuvenated appearance at all times. The abundance of antioxidants in cucumber enhances the regeneration of new skin cells that replaces the dead cells and lightens dark spots and pigmentation noticeably.

Facial pigmentation can be due to the sun, cosmetics, use of medications, stress or disease. Sunlight damages skin, it's color and texture. Uv rays enter even through the window. So make sure to use sunscreen everytime both inside and outside. Avoid cosmetics. Use cold water to wash face with a mild cleanser. Remove soap from your armamentarium. Make sure to have plenty of tomatoes and oranges. Vitamin c supplements vil help you. It's very important to b stress free. Don't use scrubs for your face, it'll grow more dark. Mix 1 tbsp puree each of papaya and carrot with 1 tbsp of curd and 1 tbsp of aloe vera. Apply it across your face or dull body part for ten to fifteen minutes and wash it off without soap.

etting rid of stubborn pimples, blackheads and whiteheads starts with thorough but gentle cleansing. Try my recipe for Homemade Honey Face Wash. Dampen skin with warm water, and massage into face and neck. Rinse well and pat dry. Do this each morning and evening and, if needed, after workouts. Refrain from cleansing more often, as this can irritate the skin and cause an overproduction of oil. It features apple cider vinegar, honey, coconut oil, probiotics and essential oils (like tea tree oil). The honey soothes the skin, the coconut oil helps to fight bacteria and fungus, and the tea tree oil helps to invigorate the skin.

It is safe but needs an utmost skin protection from sun. Instead use a hat or something else to give shade to your face, use a good sunscreen and drink Patanjali amla juice 1 tablespoon a day.

More oiliness of skin means over activation of skin situated oil glands, this is due to hormonal imbalance in general and changes in diet, lack of exercise, etc. Requires to weep out oiliness and balancing hormonal function local and internal.

For removing tan: - Mix two tablespoons of honey with a few drops of lemon juice and apply it on the affected area once or twice in a day. Apply the mixture for 10 minutes and wash it off with cold water. - Prepare a paste adding equal quantity of milk powder, lemon juice, almond oil and honey. Apply it on affected portions and keep for at least 20 minutes. This can be prepared and stored for a week. - Sugar is considered as the best cleansing agent. Apply a mixture of sugar and lemon juice on your face and wash it after 20 minutes. If you have dry skin, add a few drops of glycerine to the mixture. mixture of gram flour, lime juice and curd to get a glowing skin. But one can use the mixture regularly to get rid of tanning. - Fresh coconut water makes the skin soft and fair. Using it twice a day on hands and face can prove beneficial. - Apply a mixture of rose water, cucumber juice and a dash of lemon juice once a day. Lemon juice helps reduce the tan while rose water and cucumber work as cooling agents. - Buttermilk soothes and softens the skin. Make a pack by mixing a tablespoon of oats with buttermilk and apply it on your face or body to get rid of tan. Oats also help in exfoliating the skin so this mixture is extremely beneficial. Also, take homoeopathic Rx- Sulphur 200/ one dose once a week for a month (do not repeat it after that) and give me your feedback.

I am 21. I got acne since I was like 15 years old. I went to many dermatologist but it didnt work.
So I was thinking ...
The eruption of pimples, acne, black marks and oily face are due to excessive sebum secreted by sebaceous glands and hair follicles especially on the face.. Precautions- * Don't scratch or pinch your pimples This will cause more damage and scars. . * Avoid fried and oily foods. * Prefer fruits and green vegetables. * When you apply any cream, sun screen and the like, clean your face at the earliest, so that there will be no adverse action of the chemicals on the delicate skin of face. Your skin ‘breaths’ through its pores which are not to be closed for long. .We have good treatment in Homoeopathy without causing adverse effects. The medicines work internally, tackle the root of the problem unlike face wash which is a surface treatment.. If you are interested, please furnish the following information. *. Since how long you have this problem? *. Describe symptoms *. Any other heath problem

How to remove dark spots from my space in home itself using only the natural plants.
Hello rachna, you need to apply aloe vera over those dark spots in morning for 2 weeks. Keep drinking more and more water. Eat papaya and citrus fruits for more glowing skin. If possible, try to have fresh fruit juices in morning. Do all these things. You will get good glowing skin within 4-5 days.
