During winters,one tends to have hot water showers. Much as it feels good, hot water evaporates and rips off the skin 's moisture too leaving the skin dry & sometimes itchy too. Use lukewarm water instead and keep the baths short

Firstly start taking a full nutritious diet . A good diet is a nutritional lifestyle that promotes good health. A good diet must include several food groups because one single group cannot provide everything a human needs for good health.And what ever we are eating that reflects on our body and skin. 1. Homoeopathic medicine for fair skin is Berberis Aquafolium mother tincture.take 5 drops of it mix with water , twice a day. 2. Apply this tincture in diluted form on your face with cotton once a day . 3. wash your face with besan and curd , mix a pinch of turmeric also. 4. Apply Bio valley's skin lightening cream 5. Apply rose water to your face at night. 6. Apply cucumber juice+ lemon juice+ tomato juice on your back and neck. 7.Apply Multani mitti pack on the face,wash it off after it dries.

Co2 laser resurfacing can be done for the scars. But it will not magically remove the scars. It will help in improving the appearance of the scars. Microneedling and platelet rich plasma therapy can also help. You can contact me for further details.

Hello mam. Glad to answer your doubt. Fairness to cause, nowadays have so many varieties of treatment. But it all depends on the type of skin you have. U may be benefited by few drugs whereas no use with others. Hydroquinone is one such drug which is said to be used only under doctors prescription. Due to its high chances of addiction, side effects like Hyper pigmentation or the worse hypo pigmentation. Hence it's better if you consult a skin specialist at the earliest, get your skin examined and follow the prescribed agents.

*To control the oily secretion you should maintain your hormonal level. Because imbalance in hormone level causes excessive oily secretion on face. So do not take stress and do exercise daily such as running, jogging. Do long breathing pranayams daily for 10 minutes. • Drink 7 -8 glass of water daily. Apply rose water on your face daily for 5 minutes. * Take proper sleep of 6 to 7 hrs daily. • Use a face pack of fuller's earth (multani mitti) with rose water one time in a day for seven days. It removes toxins from skin. *You can apply cucumber juice or mixed with curd for 5 minutes and rinse with water.

Homeopathic Treatment For Oily Skin

BHMS
Homeopath, Dehradun
Homeopathic Treatment For Oily Skin

When it comes to skin, there are three main categories: oily, normal and dry. As a person ages, their skin may fall under different categories. This categorization is based on the amount of oil secreted by the oil glands in the skin. Oil is essential for healthy skin, but excessive oil production can cause blemishes, acne and a number of other skin problems. Apart from excessive oil secretion, enlarged pores, a shiny yet dull complexion and the presence of blackheads or other such blemishes are commonly seen in cases of oily skin.

Oily skin needs special care as not only does it affect your looks, but it can also worsen puberty and other hormonal imbalances.

Homeopathy is the system of medicine in which ailments are treated by minimal doses of natural substances. It attacks and cures the root cause of the ailment without causing side effects. To deal with skin disease, it not only studies the skin type but also takes into account a complete analysis of the mind, genetic factors and the condition of the immune system. Homeopathy just doesn’t treat the symptoms, but delves inside the body and takes on the root cause behind the symptoms.

Homeopathy is a holistic form of medication that has negligible side effects and is effective at controlling oily skin and the conditions caused by it. Some of the popular homeopathic remedies used to control oily skin are:

  1. Sulphur: It helps nourish skin and give it a healthy glow while clearing pimples and scars created by them. It is often prescribed in cases where a patient’s skin looks dull or is scaly. Apart from the visible symptoms, personality characteristics that are kept in mind while prescribing sulphur are excessive internal body heat, especially in the palms and soles and an excessive craving for sweets. The patient may also use medicated soaps and ointments injudiciously.

  2. Berberis Aquifolium: This is used in cases where the patient’s skin has significant scarring caused by pimples or acne. It helps lighten the complexion and give the skin an even tone. Berberis Aquifolium also gives the skin a natural glow.

  3. Psorinum: This homeopathic remedy is often prescribed to patients who have oily, greasy skin that gives them a darkened, dirty appearance and triggers acne breakouts. This is most often caused by overactive sebaceous glands on the face. Psorinum helps clear pimples and controls excessive oil secretion. It also deep cleanses pores and lightens skin. Most people who benefit from Psorinum are extra sensitive to cold air and perspire excessively with an offensive odour.

  4. Silicea and Kali Bromatum: These homeopathic remedies are prescribed in cases of dis figurative scarring caused by pimples that contain pus. It also helps smoothen skin in cases where pimples have given skin a pitted appearance. In addition, Kali Bromatum is used to clear hard indurated pimples and to lighten skin that has darkened due to acne breakouts.

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. 4. Oats Oatmeal powder is considered good for skin exfoliation. Hence, you can apply an oatmeal mask on your face and neck to remove dead skin and black spots. 1. Grind half a cup of rolled oats. 2. Add three to four tablespoons of lemon juice to make a paste. 3. Scrub it on your skin and wash it off with warm water when it dries. If it becomes messy, use a clean cloth soaked in warm water to remove the mask. Follow this treatment once or twice a week.

Homoeopathic cream ANTIMARKS CREAM ( BIOVALLEY) Apply twice daily in circular fashion Dark spots are primarily caused by acne, blemishes and black heads. The percentage of dark spots increases as the exposure to the sun increases too. Since the rate of melanin would be decreases, it leads in turn to the darkening of the skin. So, apply sunscreen (Homoeopathic SUNCARE cream of BAKSON Company) , every time you go out and follow the recipes below in order to get relief from dark spots. Instead of using the chemical products for your skin, try using some natural home remedies.

Here are some home remedies that allow your skin to be free of dark spots, black spots or pimple marks or even acne scars on the face. 1.Take a medium sized tomato and squeeze the juice from it, add one tablespoon of lemon juice to the tomato juice and stir the mixture well. Apply on the face and let it dry for 20 minutes. Rinse the face with warm water. 2.Take pulp from Aloe Vera leaves and let it dry in the sun for 5 minutes and then add few drops of lemon juice to the dried pulp. Apply this mixture on the face and wash it off after 15 minutes. The results are quite good. 3.Onions have anti-microbial properties and they help remove the acne related scars and spots. Take an onion and cut it into several pieces, grind them and then, separate the juice from the beaten onions. Apply this mixture on the affected areas; allow the mixture to remain on the skin for a few minutes and rinse off with water.
