Sunscreen is the real fountain of youth
Sunscreen is the real fountain of youth. Get into the habit of applying sunscreen or a lotion with minimum spf 15 to 30 protection daily. Remember that the sun's rays can still be damaging in winter months as it reflects off snow.

Having lots of acne marks. How to get rid of it also my face became dark these days.

MD, MBBS
General Physician, Noida
Having lots of acne marks. How to get rid of it also my face became dark these days.
If your acne have cleared and cured and dark acne marks are there, they can be removed by the application of Benoquin (Hydroxyquinone 2%) cream 2-3 times daily for 1-3 months, This cream will remove darkness only restoring original skin colour without any effect on scarring if acne marks are scarred. Scarring go by itself over years to some extent or you may consult some cosmetic plastic surgeon for scar treatment. Scar Treatment When the skin is in the process of recovering from an injury, whether the result of an accident, surgery, a burn, or acne, scarring will occur wherever multiple layers of the skin have been affected. Once a scar forms, it is permanent but may be made less visible or relocated surgically. Is Facial Scar Treatment for You? The goal of facial scar treatment is to disguise the scar, relocate it, or minimize its prominence. Important factors to be discussed with your surgeon include: Skin type and color Ethnic background Individual healing rates Age Different types of scars respond to different plastic surgery techniques. A person considering facial scar revision must understand that there is no way to remove scars completely. Timing of surgery is another important choice. Some surgeons advise against any scar revision in cases of injury for a period that might extend up to a year after the injury. This interval allows the body enough time to heal fully. Making the Decision for Scar Treatment What you should expect: Your surgeon will examine the scar in order to decide upon the proper treatment and inform you of outcomes that can be expected from facial scar revision surgery. The agreement between you and your surgeon on how to proceed is a prerequisite for successful surgery. After you both decide to proceed with scar revision, your surgeon will inform you about: a. Anesthesia b. Surgical facility c. Supportive surgery options d. Costs Because scars are highly individualistic and the patient's attitude toward scars is so personal, maximum improvement in facial scars may require more than one procedure. More than one technique may be employed. Understanding Scar Revision Surgery Following is a general description of the surgery. Remember, each patient’s individual needs and features are considered before surgery. When a scar is of the contracture type, surgery generally involves removing the scar tissue entirely. Skin flaps, composed of adjacent healthy, unscarred skin, are then lifted and moved to form a new incision line. Where a flap is not possible, a skin graft may be used. A graft involves taking a section of skin tissue from one area and attaching it to another. Time must be allowed following surgery for new blood vessels and soft tissue to form. Z-plasty is a method to move a scar from one area to another, usually into a natural fold or crease in the skin to minimize its visibility. While Z-plasty does not remove all signs of a scar, it does make it less noticeable. Dermabrasion and laser resurfacing are methods a surgeon uses to make "rough or elevated" scars less prominent by removing part of the upper layers of skin with an abrading tool or laser light. Clearly, the scar will remain, but it will be smoother and less visible. Keloid or hypertrophic scars are often treated first with injections of steroids to reduce size. If this is not satisfactory, the scars can be removed surgically, and the incisions closed with fine stitches, often resulting in less prominent scars. Treatment of Pimples:- Acne/pimples are easily treatable within 7 days to 1 month. Even dark spots would go away themselves within 3-6 months or you may use Benoquin (Hydroxyquinone 2%) cream for 1 month to get rid of black spots once pimples have got cured. Salicylic acid should never be applied on pimples as it being acid would cause damage to nearby skin and may cause scarring and black spots. Acne or Pimples result due to hypersensitive skin, arrested growth of sebaceous glands, high androgen production, high sebum production, frequent blocking of sebaceous glands with subsequent bacterial infection of sebaceous glands. You are producing more androgens but that is good for your sexuality. Excess androgens may cause both hyper-sexuality or night-falls and pimples but we can't give you ant-androgens because they may cause feminization of your body and mentality. Androgens cause more sebum production in sebaceous glands of your skin of face and cause pimples. More sebum production causes oiliness and dust particles stick easily to oily skin closing pores of sebaceous glands and sebum is stuck inside causing enlargement of gland as pimple. If it gets infected, it may develop pus making white heads. Some times skin is very sensitive and applying chemicals or drugs in the form of cosmetics and may result into pimples. In some people, skin growth is slow or arrested along with being oversensitized or associated with high production of androgens. This result into development of reddish pink pimples which grow very slowly but new ones keep on erupting and the whole face is filled with hundreds of reddish pink pimples. In some cases, pimples spread beyond face to neck, shoulder, back and even chest. If you pinch pimples, nearby skin gets damaged and heals by growth of new skin that contains more melanin due to overgrowth of melanocytes resulting into blackish pigmentation with or without scar. For pimples you do following things: Wash your face with mild soap like Lux, Rexona etc 3-4 times in day time, at the time of sleeping, at least once in night if got awaken and just after getting up from sleep. You should keep your face free from oiliness due to sebum on your face. Take AD capsules (containing fat-soluble Vitamin-A) 20 capsule every week. Vitamin A will diminish sebum production and enhance growth of skin and pimples and pimples will be shed off rapidly. (you get a bottle of 1000 AD capsules for around Rs100/-) You can also apply local cream or gel of Adaptalene (marketed by the name of acnelene) on your face. If you apply they refrain from sunlight. Adaptalene is also a retinoid like Vitamin -A. With Vit-A or adaptalene, pimples come outwards rapidly giving impression that problem of pimples is being enhanced. But keep patience. Pimples will shed off within a week. Tretinoin is also used for pimples but don't use it as it causes hyper-pigmentation. If the pimples get infected with pus, take Azithromycin 500 mg on empty stomach once daily for 5-days under medical supervision. Never pinch pimples but let them shed off or fall themselves otherwise blackening will occur and scar may also be formed. Do not apply cosmetics, cleansing lotions, sun-screens, chemical lotions or solutions or medicated soaps to already over-sensitized skin of yours. Use mild soaps like lux, rexona etc or cetrim soap congaing cetrimide. Or you may use besan paste or multani mitti to remove oiliness from face. Take less fats that provides triglycerides in blood which get converted into sebum in sebaceous glands. Take plenty of water to keep you hydrated. Consume green vegetables, salad and fresh seasonal fruits. Consume Green tea regularly. Divert your mind from sexual activities and pornographic literature or wash your face frequently during these activities as these activities increase androgen secretion in body which increase oiliness of face. Take proper and regular sleep in a disciplined life. Remain happy. Get rid of anxiety & tensions. Control your ambitions, envies and jealousies. Do regular morning evening walks and/or exercises. Black spots or pigmentation of acne/pimplea may subside itself within 3-6 months after pimples have cured. You may apply Benoquin (Hydroxyquinone 2%) cream for 1 month to get rid of them.

These are the methods to treat pimples - •Steam your face to open the pores ,which in turn clear the skin .steam your face for a couple of minutes. • Do YOGASANA daily. Especially do SINHASANA & SARVANGASANA daily. • Use oil free face wash and drink 7 -8 glass of water daily . • Do not touch your face again & again because your finger transfer bacteria to it and make it worse. If you touch it then clean your face with water. • Mix black pepper powder in some water to make paste & apply on the pimples three times a week. • Take cucumber and papaya pulp .Mix it well and add 1 tablespoon Turmeric. Make a paste and apply it on face and leave it for 15 minutes. • Take 2 teaspoon of RAKTSHODHAK syrup of BAIDYANATH company once a day after meals

I am suffering from hair fall please suggest me best way to control hair loss.
I follow healthy diet chart.
But still...
Is your hair loss accompanied with greying of hair and have they become very thin? your hair needs a very high protein well-rounded diet. Hair and nails are the last organs to get nutrition in the body, hence only if all the organs get sufficient nutrition and proteins, only then the remaining nutrition would be used for hairs. A strand of hair is composed of mostly protein, which means your hair needs protein to grow. Hence a therapeutic diet prescribed by a registered dietitian can help a lot in hair growth. Besides diet excessive stress, current/past dandruff and some medication are conclusively known to retard hair growth and promote hair loss. - cut down on the use of hair spray, hair gels, and styling creams that contain harsh chemical ingredients, which can dry out the scalp and cause the formation of flakes. Also harsh treatments such as perms, colours, relaxers etc take a toll on the health of your hair. - avoid changing your shampoo and conditioner constantly. Stick to one good mild cleansing shampoo for six months before changing. - excessive exposure to the sun, pollution, rain water and dust without proper protection makes the hair dry, brittle and limp. Use a live in conditioner during the rains to protect it from the humidity and wash and oil it regularly to maintain a healthy scalp. I may also prescribe medications like biotin or minox. That are proven to help in hairgrowth and repair I being a both a registered dietitian (rd) and doctor have been successfully helping patients with their problems through a holistic approach using customized therapeutic diet and medications. I will also suggest home remedies.

Properties that help fight the bacteria that cause these skin problems. Plus, its soothing properties help reduce the redness and inflammation of pimples. It also helps dry out blackheads and whiteheads. •Just dip a cotton ball in tea tree essential oil and dab it on the affected area. Rinse your face after 15 to 20 minutes. Note: Steer clear of tea tree oil if you have sensitive skin.

I am having pimples and its increasing day by day. So what should I do and what should I take to reduce it?
PIMPLE You need more than medicines and gels to deal with pimples. The issue requires lifestyle and eating habit changes. First start with increased intake of Vit A, C and E for flushing out acne-causing proteins and calming your skin. Eat nuts like walnuts and almonds and stop consuming dairy products. You also need to fight stress and depression for a healthy and glowing skin. Bring Yoga and Meditation in your lifestyle. Mositurize your skin with non comadogenic moisturizers and avoid haircare products that clog your skin pores. Use oil-control facewash to clean the impurities and stay hydrated. Consult me privately on Lybrate to know more about what else you can do to treat acnes.

Kip karpin is good. Also follow these remedies to control hair whitening- 1. Use mild shampoo to wash hair (you can make your own shampoo using reetha and shikakai at home) 2. Stop using conditioners. Use natural conditioners like egg, yougurt and lemon. 3. Massage your scalp with a mix of oils like olive, coconut, sesame, castor oil at night. 4. Apply raw amla juice on hair thrice a week. 5. Rub your scalp with the juice of white onion. 6. Use a paste of bhringraj on hair. 7. You can use some good hair packs like - fenugreek and yogurt, egg and green tea. 8. You can rinse your hair with organic apple cider vinegar after washing your hair to maintain ph balance of your hair. 9. Hair health depends on the amount of protein in your diet. Foods like chicken, eggs, fish, nuts, dry fruits gives you the required nutrients to keep your skin and hair healthy. So consume plenty of them. Eat things rich in vitamin c like amla and oranges. 10. Drink lots of water to flush out toxins from the body.
