How to Deal with Dry Skin

How to Deal with Dry Skin

An oil massage is one of the best remedies for dry skin. Using an anti-aging oil would be best as it would be highly absorbant.

Hair health depends on your genetics. Start following some of these tips daily for good hair hair health - 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.

Protein strengthens hair and controls hair falling. Eat a high protein diet filled with meat, fish, eggs, avocados, nuts, and beans, or add protein supplements to your drinks.

Hi lybrate-user, Acne requires a proper medical treatment and post acne care for dark spots/scars which are commonly associated with acne. Apart from medical treatment which includes medications for local application and oral medications if required, for long term benefits advanced treatments available. These are, Chemical peels, RF therapy, Enriched oxygen therapy and Microneedling therapy. These are highly recommended. These not only cure acne but also lead to significant improvement in appearance of dark spots and scars. Treatment is done based on the severity of the condition. 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.

Hello Sadly, grey hair is a problem with no treatment except coloring and camouflage. If yore not having any sort or itching or redness after applying the dye, there seems to be no problem with the products you're already using, The increased rate of grey hairs is probably because of the natural progression of the problem rather than the hair color. Try to get complete blood count and hemoglobin done for any deficiencies. And try to take supplements which contain PABA and calcium pantothenate daily like tablet hairbless.

Hello, thank you for posting on lybrate. I appreciate your concern regarding acne and I will try to answer your queries in best possible way. Acne, as you must be aware is a pretty common condition affecting majority of teenagers. It is caused chiefly due to hormonal influence and clogging of pores and followed by infection and inflammation. It has tendency for recurrence and complications like pigmentation and scarring, thus mandates proper treatment at the earliest. Treatment usually depends on severity of of acne and for the accurate grading you need a proper examination by a dermatologist or atleast you can share your pics in a direct question, so I can advise you in a better way. Usually I advise proper course of oral antibiotics (azithromycin etc) with or without oral isotretinoin for few months. Additionally, I advise use of a cream containing nadifloxacin/clindamycin twice day and a gel containing benzoyl peroxide and adapalene for few months. This combination of benzoyl peroxide and adapalene is one of the recent advances in the treatment of acne and has wonderful results if used in a right way. Your local doctor will know about these drugs. Apart from home-based treatment, I also advise procedures like chemical peeling and laser and light therapy for patients having severe acne and associated complications like pigmentation and scarring. Use good quality face wash and a moisturizer on regular basis. Avoid junk food as far as possible and include plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables in your diet. Hope this will take care of your condition. Thanking you

Clean and Clear face wash is very harsh on the skin. Instead, use a mild cleanser like Tea tree Face wash and Toner twice a day. Also Drink Green tea 2-3 times a day. It is high in antioxidants which fight free radicals and prevent damage to the skin from the inside. Eat fruits and vegetables high in Vitamin C and drink a lot of water throughout the day.
