Which cream is best for white stretch marks on hips and back of knee? they are much older stretch marks. Is it true workout can fade away stretch marks? please suggest some creams and other ways to remove stretch marks.

Advanced Aesthetics
Ayurveda, Gulbarga
Stretch marks usually appear on: o Abdomen o Back o Waist o Arms o Hips o Breast o Lower back o Legs Symptoms to look for: ? Stretch marks are thick red or purple lines on the skin ? Over time, these lines fade to white or silver in colour Causes: ? Skin is made up of elastin, which is a soft elastic tissue. It makes the skin soft, supple and stretchable. Over-stretching of skin damages elastin resulting in stretch marks. ? Sudden weight change ? Rapid body growth during teenage ? Pregnancy Natural home remedy using apricots: 1. Cut and remove seeds of 2-3 apricots 2. Crush them to paste 3. Apply this paste on the marks 4. Leave it for 20 min 5. Wash it off with lukewarm water 6. Repeat this regularly for 1 month Tips: ? Apply petroleum jelly on the abdomen during pregnancy o But do not do this without consulting your doctor

Aloe vera contains enzymes that directly promote healthy hair growth. Also, its alkalizing properties can help bring the scalp and hair?s pH to a more desirable level, which can greatly promote hair growth. Regular use can also relieve scalp itching, reduce scalp redness and inflammation, add strength and luster to hair, and alleviate dandruff. Both aloe vera gel and juice will work. 1. Apply aloe vera gel or juice onto the scalp. 2. Leave it on for a few hours and then wash it off with lukewarm water. 3. Repeat the process three to four times a week. You can also consume one tablespoon of aloe vera juice daily on an empty stomach to enjoy better hair growth.

For Athletes - 5 Ways to Prevent Skin Conditions

5 Ways to prevent skin conditions in athletes

Given their nature of work, athletes are at an increased risk of acquiring skin infections. These infections can lead to serious consequences if they are left untreated.

Here are 5 ways in which skin conditions in athletes can be prevented.

1. Keeping the bruises clean and covered - 
It is important for you to keep the cuts and scrapes clean as well as covered with bandages until they heal because such openings in the skin weaken its defence against germs and increase the possibility of infections.

2. Taking care of the blisters - Make sure that you prevent blisters as much as you can because they make your skin susceptible to infections. Use gels, sprays, ice pads etc. and try to avoid getting sunburnt to prevent dangerous skin conditions.

3. Be mindful of what you wear - It is important for athletes to wear moisture-wicking clothes because sweat, if not made to dry, can lead to growth of germs that can cause a number of skin diseases and infections. Also, not wearing foot wear outside the field can lead to infections on the feet.

4. Maintaining good hygiene - Take a shower after every practice session and game using an antimicrobial soap. Besides, use a clean towel and avoid sharing your personal care items like razor, soap etc. with other athletes. This is extremely important in order to reduce the risk of bacterial infection.

5. Disinfect all your equipment and go for skin checkups - Make sure that you disinfect all your equipment like the protective gear, gloves, socks etc. after every use. Also, get regular skin checkups done, especially if you are associated with high-risk sports like wrestling, boxing etc. There is an increased possibility of skin injuries, sores, swelling etc. in athletes associated with such sports, which exposes them to a greater risk of skin conditions. So, disinfection and clinical checkups on a regular basis become all the more important for them. Ensure that you never use sandpaper or bleach simply to pass a skin check up.

Mera face kafi dull rehta h glow v ni rha please suggest me jis se mere face ka glow wapas aa jaye.

Mera face kafi dull rehta h glow v ni rha please suggest me jis se mere face ka glow wapas aa jaye.
Dear lybrate-user face dull/ glow nahi rehneke primary reasons hai. Stress, negative vibes, late nights, intake of salty and sour food in more quantity, less hydration of skin. So kindly avoid these factors. Any skin disease increases coz of stress. Meditate and do Pranayaam in open air. Work on your problem but don't think bout it much. Apply kumkumadi tail (kerala pharmacy) to d face daily twice. Internally take 1 tsf liquorice (mulethi) powder with 1 tsf ghee + warm milk at bed time. Every morning apply dudh malai + haldi as a scrub to d face. For more specific details consult personally on Lybrate. All d best. Your health is our priority.

facing Hair fall problem. what to do?

Advanced Aesthetics
Ayurveda,
Baldness is not an overnight affair. It is a long term process which has to be arrested as soon as you start noticing it. While among the 40 plus men baldness is very common, women often think that the chances for them getting bald are very less. But that? s not true; women too can face the same problem which starts from thinning of the hair there are many reasons why you may go bald. But don? t lose hope. It is never too late. They are many good solutions available to induce hair growth in baldness. But before opting for any one randomly, you must know the reason that caused baldness and take measures accordingly. Causes of baldness 1. Heredity: if your fathers, uncles have clean heads to show off in their mid 40? s, you must set an alarm for yourself when you are in your 20s. Take proper care of your mane, as prescribed by an expert. Apart from that maintain a healthy, stress-free life style. Inculcate the habit of keeping yourself hydrated always. 2. Sickness: excessive hair loss might start as you are recovering from diseases like typhoid or jaundice. If you do not pay attention to your hair getting thin at that moment, it wouldn? t take much time to result in an empty patch on your head. 3. Lack of maintenance: if you expose your hair to various chemicals without judging the components of the products, it may cause serious harm to your hair. Bald hair growth solutions since every product available on the counter promises to get you beautiful and lustrous hair, you have to be extra cautious when you pick up a product. Going by your preferences, you must choose the following 1. Medicinal help: good medicines can always help to a certain extent for hair growth. Consult a doctor before you resort to this. While, this may bring result sooner, on the flipside, it might have some side effects too. 2. Treatment for baldness: hair treatments will spur the follicles of your head to produce new hair. This involves a considerable cost. However, many apprehend that the newly grown hair will start falling again once you stop the treatment. 3. Natural remedies: natural remedies are considered to be the best ones and are the most recommended ones to follow as the hair growth naturally will not shed off easily once you master the methods of taking proper care with patience. Below mentioned are few natural hair growth tips: 1. Massage olive oil and castor oil on your scalp. Both are known to induce dormant follicles. 2. Rub onion on the scalp. It is also known to be very effective in regenerating new hair. 1.3. Increase the intake of protein enriched food. Proteins are the basics of new cells and taking considerable amount of milk, fish, and meat will help in the growth of hair. 4. Consult for hair growth treatment for more queries inform me.

Hello lybrate-user, please do the following. Switch to using natural homemade dyes that are a warehouse of scalp nourishing ingredients. Boil tea/coffee in water for 15 minutes and let it cool. Add natural oils to the cooled liquid to form a nourishing natural hair dye. Wash your hair regularly with this natural dye to get rid of white hair.

I have a dandruff problem. When ever I wash my hair again dandruff increases. How to prevent my hairs from dandruff.
If your hair is thin, damaged, dry or brittle or you are suffering from dandruff, some simple changes into your daily nutrition needs & hair care can give you thick, bouncy and shiny hair. While your hair type mostly depends on your genetics, stress, hormonal imbalance and poor diet have a great influence on your hair health and appearance. Start by following a good diet - Eat adequate amount of protein. Your hair is made up mainly of proteins. Eat eggs, cottage cheese, chicken, soya, lentils, whole grains. Vitamin C, Zinc and Vitamin B are other important nutrients for great hair health. So include lot of fresh fruits, vegetables and whole grains in your daily diet. Next important step is to follow good hair care - Oiling your hair with a mixture of oils like olive, sesame, coconut and castor oil keeps provides moisture to your hair and prevent them from drying and breakage. Once in a week apply a good hair mask. You can mix and prepare different types of masks using eggs, green tea, olive oil, milk, gooseberry, thyme, chamomile etc. Condition your hair using organic Apple Cider Vinegar, Rosemary tea once in a while. Limit frequent brushing of hair, use of chemicals or hair dryer as they tend to damage even the finest hair if you have. Choosing a good shampoo according to your hair type is very important. Dry or brittle hair shampoo requirement is different from oily hair. A professional hair and scalp analysis to get right hair care products for you is worth than spending time and energy on wrong products. Make a visit to your nearest dermatologist soon to get head turning hair.
