I am a boy and my skin color is brown. What I do for looking smart and beautiful?

I am a boy and my skin color is brown. What I do for looking smart and beautiful?
Personality comprises of 1. the look on your face- confident, happy always attractive 2. your physical appearance- body in shape is always smart, obesity bad 3. the words you speak- expresses your content, knowledge and thoughts 4. looks are deceptive, good looks does not mean good personality, yes they are a criteria, but the way you are taking it is not right. Just love yourself, and find good things about you, do not be proud of them. Always be modest and helpful.

What should be applied to Herpes infected area (outbreak) on upper back for early cure and for reducing inflammation? I applied ice and cold water on the herpes infected area and Herpex 5 cream, Virovir 250 tablet, neurobion Forte tablet. Today I have been told from a relative that ice/cold water should not be applied om Herpes outbreak. Is it true?

Ice water will not have any effect on herpes. Nothing applied will work. Herpex cream did not prove to be useful in early resolution of the disease. No problem in applying ice water as well as no use in applying ice water. No problem in applying herpex cream as well as no use. No worries.

Dear, all face wash are soap based. So the only puspose of face wash is to clean the face skin and remove the dirt and oily secretion from the face skin.So if you want to choose the face wash. Choose it according to the type of your skin. If your skin is so oily and moist, it means your skin gland produce more oily secretion sochoose that face wash which removes these secretions and make your face glow. You can use himalayas neem face wash for that. The best thing is fullers earth (multani mitti) for the oily skin. If you have a sensetive skin then please donot use any face wash. Just soak thecotton in rose water and clean the face very gently with it and do not rub the face with it. In case, you have normal and healthyskin, then you can use any mild face wash or mild and soft soaps like dove or pears. I hope you understand what I want to tell you. Follow these things and have a healthy glowing face. Be healthy. you can use garnier double action face wash.

1) have a diet rich in iron like beets, dates etc. 2) try to keep stress level to minimum 3) get a good sleep. Don't stay awake for long hours. Finally consult a dermatologist for chemical peeling. I suggest not to try any creams. Take care.

How Chemical Peels Are The Secret Of Perfect Skin?

How Chemical Peels Are The Secret Of Perfect Skin?

A glowing and clear skin is something that we all aspire to have. Irrespective of age, gender or profession, having a skin free of acne, blackheads, whiteheads and marks is something that is a welcome sight, for your own self as well as others who see you. A lot of people are blessed with impeccably flawless skin but they are many others who may have to go through treatments or medications to make sure that they are able to achieve the look that they desire the most.

As the year's pass, they tend to take a toll on our body as well as our skin. One of the most prominent areas, where the skin starts showing signs of aging is our face. We have many ways with which we can manage to stop this wear and tear and look younger for longer. One of these methods is the use of chemical peels.

How it works:

Chemical peels are basically very light acids which are formulated into a peel with help of other chemicals. It works by dissolving the dead cells of the topmost layer of the skin. This procedure reveals a new layer of skin, which is visibly brighter and younger. After the application of the peel, a neutralizer is applied to cease the action of the peel. Different skin types and skin issues may require varied concentrations of and type of chemical peel and only an expert in the field may be able to decide the exact need.

The Aftercare:

Since the skin may become a bit sensitive after the treatment, it is essential that anyone who undergoes peeling treatment ensures following precautions:

  1. The skin may become sensitive to soap, which is why washing the skin with soap needs to be avoided for 24 hours or as instructed by the specialist.
  2. If there is mild redness of the skin, a cold compress can be used to ease the irritation. However, if the irritation or redness is excessive, it needs to be brought to notice of the doctor.
  3. Bleaching, waxing, facials or other such treatments should be avoided for at least a week or as suggested by the dermatologist.
  4. It is also advisable to avoid heavy makeup for a short period of time after the chemical peel is carried out so that the skin gets enough time to recover itself.

Chemical peeling has several advantages:

  1. It is a safe and effective procedure with minimal complications.
  2. It is inexpensive and totally affordable.
  3. It can be easily combined with other modalities like micro-needling and microdermabrasion.
  4. Many peels can be done as a lunch-time procedure and patient can resume work immediately.

With the advent of the wide variety of peeling agents, a large number of problems can be addressed and peels can be customized according to needs of the patients. With the best medically approved cosmetic practices at your disposal, you may have to look no further for the glowing and radiant skin. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Dermatologist.

Hi lybrate-user, Melacare Forte Cream contains Hydroquinone, Mometasone, and Tretinoin as active ingredients. Mometasone furoate is a topical steroid. It is not recommended to use this on skin for long period of time without medical advice and indication. Your skin may feel better initially with its use but, it can lead to undesirable effects like flaring up of acne/other infection, unusual pigmentation and dependence. It is also not recommended to use Hydroquinone preparations for long periods of time. I advise you to stop using this ointment/cream and consult me. I would be happy to help you. Please consult me privately so that I can understand your problem in detail and help you. You can book a private In-person/Text/Audio/Video appointment for further discussion and personalized advice.
