Hello . My face is very dirty with dark face . And my face is black . I need a superior face. So what can I do.

Ayurveda, Ambala
Dear , follow these important tips to get fair colour of skin * avoid to go in strong sunlight and if you have to go in sunlight then cover your face & exposed parts of body before going in sunlight. * Use sunscreen having SPF 15 on face especially in summer and spring season. * Take vitamin -E rich foods like dry fruits, egg and fish as you like. * Take more anti oxidant foods like fruits (Apple, grapes, melon) and citrus fruits. * Make paste of Papaya and apply this paste on face & exposed body parts and leave it for 15 minutes. It brightens the skin and lower melanin content. *• Apply one teaspoon of honey for 30 minutes and wash it off . • Apply one teaspoon Besan with one teaspoon of curd and a pinch of haldi (turmeric) mix it with water then apply for 15 minutes then rinse off it with water . You can consult me privately for more detailed treatment , home remedies and your doubts.

Dark color aroun neck most of the time signifies that you are not taking proper care of your skin especially the folded area of your skin which leads to darkness around that area.I will advise you a homoeopathic cream which you should use for one month and then consult me WHITENING CREAM ( BIOVALLEY)Apply in circular fashion in morning nd at night

Just for good skin, what should I do, pimple free, I have marks of pimples, I use many creams to cover this but :-/ Now I am using clindamycin phosphate and nicotinamide gel, my friend said me about this, it only remove acne but The marks are still same, suggest any best cream for clear skin without pimples nd marks #thanks.

Yoga & Naturopathy Specialist, Delhi
It is wrong to think that Pimple acne or dandruff are skin problems of face or head is all wrong. These are just symptoms of a body laden with toxins. Therefore no local treatment like applying creams, lotions or face washes can do anything good. Even if by some medicine these are suppressed the body toxins will come out in some other form which will surely be more complicated that the present ones. From the above it is clear that when toxins are removed all such problems will go away. Only Naturopathy can remove the toxins from the body. T

MD - Dermatology , Venereology & Leprosy
Dermatologist, Visakhapatnam
Avoid frequent washing Don't expose ur fingers to cool atmosphere Cover them with gloves and socks Apply moisturiser to keep them smooth and soft Use medicated creams to reduce cracks

I have black spots as well as pimples. I have seen on the internet the home remedies for pimple removal. There was a method, in which mixture of sugar, milk powder and honey was there. Should I use it ?

Dear Mr. Lybrate-user, I would suggest that you consult a dermatologist as early as possible as there is always the possibility of developing post acne scars. Your dermatologist may prescribe the required cleansers, sunscreen and creams/gels along with oral medications depending on the severity of acne. Or your dermatologist can also suggest a series of peels. Please do not apply any homemade mixtures that may aggravate your acne. I hope this answers your query!

I have more pimples on my face and dark spots. What I have to do to require this?

DHMS (Diploma in Homeopathic Medicine and Surgery)
Homeopath, Hyderabad
The eruption of pimples, 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..

5 Types of Scars You Need to Know About

5 Types of Scars You Need to Know About

Scars are referred to as marks left on the skin or body tissue, caused by an accident or injury. Scars are part of the natural healing process that takes place after an injury. When the white blood cells attack bacteria, they cause physical changes to the underlying skin cells around the area, thereby leading to the formation of a scar.

There are different types of scars, caused due to different factors. Some of the commonly occurring scars are:

1) Atrophic scars - These types of scars are flat against the upper layer of the skin. This type of scarring is caused by hyperpigmentation and is marked by discolored parts and patches of the skin. Initially, they are red, dark and raised. With the help of medicines and passage of time, they gradually fade away.

2) Hypertrophic scars - These types of scars appear to be elevated or raised and are caused as a result of a disparity in the production of collagen (connective tissues). These scars do not extend beyond the outline of the original wound, and can remain for a period 2-5 years. Hypertrophic scars turn flatter and paler with the course of time and with the help of requisite medication.

3) Keloid scars - Keloid scars tend to appear when the skin goes through an aggressive healing process. This causes thick, dark, clustered scars to form, which are often in contrast with the surrounding skin. Secretion of excess collagen on the affected area can also be a cause of keloid scars. Although medications are used, the most effective way to remove keloid scars is through surgery.

4) Scar contractures - This type of scar is caused due to burns. Burns present on the joints and creases stiffen the affected area, causing difficulty in movement and flexibility. Deep contracture scars may in some cases lead to dysfunctions in nervous and muscular activities.

5) Acne scars - Acne and pimples are acute skin problems, and the marks they leave behind are long lasting. Acne scars are caused due to severe acne and show differing patterns when it comes to their shape, type, and depth. In fact, the treatment for acne scars varies depending on these factors.

1. To make a tomato remedy for fair skin, you can follow some easy steps such as:

  1. You add 2 tsp of lemon juice and 1 to 2 tomatoes into a blender.
  2. You add gram flour (besan) to it.
  3. You blend well to create a smooth paste.
  4. You apply this paste on the face.
  5. Then you keep for 20 minutes.
  6. You wash off with the cool water.

2. Choose a sunscreen with a Sun Protection Factor (SPF) of 15 or higher. If you have fair skin, you should consider choosing a higher minimum SPF of 30 to 50. Apply 1 ounce (a golf ball-sized amount) of sunscreen 30 minutes before going outside, and then reapply every 2 hours or after swimming, sweating, or toweling off.

3. Mix 1 teaspoon each of honey and milk, and apply the paste over your face and neck. Apply a paste of 1 teaspoon turmeric powder and 3 teaspoons fresh lemon juice on darkened skin. Beat an egg well and apply the fluffy mixture to your face. Wash it off after it's dry.

Hi I am 25 years old I have been facing a skin problem which might be ichthyosis extremely dry and scaly skin since childhood it might be hereditary which is killing me so can you please suggest the best method to control this as I know it is non durable.

Hi, I am very happy that you have accepted the situation and have decided to face it. But ichthyosis (if the diagnosis is right) can be manged very well with ayurveda. It need not destroy your life. But unfortunately I really can not prescribe medicines for skin problems without seeing it. So please do consult. Home remedies may not produce great results but it can certainly give you some relief 1. Curry leaf powder - 1 spoon everyday 2.1 teaspoon of cows ghee - consume it daily with warm roti or with warm rice 3. Add 2 tablespoons of pure sesame oil to your bathing water and use it to wash your skin.
