Please use Tea tree oil which is excellent for treating acne and pimples. It has antibacterial 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.

Extract fresh aloe vera gel from an aloe leaf. Apply it directly on dark patches and black spots. Gently massage the area with your fingertips for a few minutes. Almonds help lighten and brighten your skin as well as reduce black spots and scars. Being rich in vitamin E, antioxidants and healthy fats, almonds help maintain clear and flawless skin. Take 8-10 almonds and soak them in milk overnight. Peel off the skin and grind the almonds in the morning. Now, add 1 teaspoon sandalwood powder and ½ teaspoon honey in it. Mix them to make a fine paste. Apply it on your face. Leave it on for about 30 minutes and then wash it off. Use this face mask once or twice a week.

If the reddishness is still there, Don't rush to cure marks as of now. But if redness has healed completely, you may start using Kojic Acid cream at bedtime daily. Do not forget to apply sunscreen every morning.

I have very dry and unmanageable hair. Please help me to get soft and smooth hair please.
Hello, To get soft and silky hair, try the below given methods:- 1. Beer works as an excellent hair tonic. The proteins (hops and malt) in beer help repair damaged hair cuticles and provide nourishment to hair follicles. This in turn adds shine and luster to your hair. 1. Wash your hair with shampoo and then apply flat beer from the root to the ends. 2. Massage the beer thoroughly into your scalp using circular motions. 3. Allow it to sit for about five minutes and then rinse it off. 4. Follow this remedy once every two weeks. 2. Coconut oil :-To get shiny hair, it is important to provide nourishment by applying oil to your hair regularly. Coconut oil (organic and unrefined) is one of the best options. It helps restore moisture to dry and damaged hair, in turn making it shiny and healthy. Apply warm coconut oil on your hair, from the root to the ends. Massage for a few minutes and then wrap your hair in a shower cap or towel for at least 30 minutes. Rinse your hair with water, then shampoo and condition like normal. Another option is to add a few curry leaves to two tablespoons of coconut oil. Heat it until warm. When cool, massage the oil gently onto the scalp and hair. Cover with a warm towel for 30 minutes and then wash with a mild shampoo. Follow either of these remedies once or twice a week, depending on your hair condition. You can also use olive oil, castor oil, or almond oil and follow the same process or 30 minutes and then wash with a mild shampoo.

It happens due to nasal allergy. The best way to treat congestion is to treat the allergy that’s causing it. You may be allergic to -dust mites, -tree pollen, or -animal dander. -You should cover your nose whenever you are exposed to an environment with any of the above. -give steam regularly. -use Cromolyn sodium (NasalCrom) nasal spray If the spray causes breif sneezing or irritation, it is normal but if you see it does not suit you, you can simply use Vicks inhaler. -you can take diatonic dca when you get a problem, it will relief your irritation, especially before bed time.

Quit smoking the major reason for growth of hair fall. 2. Avoid junk food, coffee and alcohol coffee, alcohol and junk food all are devitalizing and excessive usage of these items usually leads to premature aging. 3. Ease stress as already mentioned in the causes, too much stress can cause hair fall. People who work consistently under pressure, stress and tension should try yoga and other relaxing techniques so as to avoid premature aging and hair fall. 4. Keep a healthy diet a healthy diet ensures that your body gets all the nutrients it needs to function properly.

Your hair needs a high protein well-rounded diet. - cut down on the use of hair spray, hair gels, and styling creams that contain harsh chemical ingredients. - avoid changing your shampoo and conditioner constantly. Stick to one good mild cleansing shampoo for six months before changing.

Lubricate your hair. Using a moisturizer greatly reduces the chances of split ends and promotes hair growth by diminishing breakage. However, to avoid overtly oily hair, use only a little moisturizer or try lubricating your hair a couple of hours before hair wash. Moisturized hair will attract dust if you go out.
