Hi, acne is the most common teenage problem. Acne is a result of a blockage in the follicles or the pores on the skin. It includes whiteheads, pimples, blackheads and rashes, and occurs usually on the face, chest. Homoeopathy cures acne conditions like blackheads, whiteheads, skin rashes and oily skin very effectively. *treatment part for the acne -- 1. Take kali brom 30 ch, (wsi) 3 drops daily morning empty stomach. 2. Take berberis aquafolium q 10 drops with water twice a day.* management part for the acne-- 1. Drink 10 to 12 glasses of water daily. 2. Eat healthy and balanced diet including whole grain meals, green leafy vegetables and fruits. 3. Avoid oily, junk and spicy food. *home remedy for acne-- crush coriander leaves and take out its juice, then mix it with a pinch of turmeric powder, now apply on acne at night. Use this home remedy for oily face:- tomatoes are great for oily skin due to their cooling, clarifying and astringent properties. The high vitamin c content in tomatoes is very helpful for acne prone skin plus, the natural oil-absorbing acids in tomatoes help get rid of excess oil. *cut a tomato in half and rub it on your skin. Allow the juice to soak into your skin for at least 15 minutes. Rinse your skin with cold water, pat it dry and apply a light oil-free moisturizer. You can also make a face mask by combining three tablespoons of tomato juice with one tablespoon of honey.

5 Wrinkle Forming Habits You Need to Ditch

MBBS, MD - Dermatology
Dermatologist, Ahmedabad
5 Wrinkle Forming Habits You Need to Ditch

It is  that most wrinkles are caused by the sun and only a small part is caused by the skin aging. Getting wrinkles is also affected by the habits we have. Habits indeed play a vital role in the same.

Sun protection is the most important thing one must to if you want to fight wrinkles. The UV rays are responsible for the breakage of the structure of the skin. The basic structure of the skin is broken layer by layer starting from collagen, elastin and the epidermis thereby giving rise to wrinkles. Some people have are prone to UV damage genetically and it is because of the ethnicity and the skin pigments. 

A given ethnic skin might vary how the structural damage occurs when UV exposure is given. The wrinkles from the sun and those by aging can be easily distinguished. The skin in the under surface of the arm which is mostly sun protected is different from the skin in the upper arm. Also, skin of the breast is different from the V of the chest which is exposed to the sun.

Here are 5 wrinkle forming habits you need to ditch:

  1. Not using sunscreen: One cannot escape the sun and the only way to do it and enjoy the sun is to wear sunscreen. It should be applied daily especially on the face where the skin is thin and delicate.
  2. Squinting: Squinting in the sun is a bad idea and this usually happens when you are not wearing glasses. Next time before stepping out in the sun make sure to wear the glasses as they protect the eyes and will not cause furrow between the brow and the crow's feet.
  3. Not moisturizing enough: If a good moisturizer is not used then it leads to crinkles in the skin which are wrinkles deep under the skin. Crinkles can be reversed if a moisturizer is used followed with exfoliation of the dead cells. Start moisturizing as all skin types from dry to oily need it.
  4. Smoking: This is bad not only for health, but also for the skin. Tobacco and other chemicals in cigarettes can lead to damage of the skin's fiber and elastin. Smoking also restricts the blood flow, thereby making it difficult for the oxygen and nutrients to stay in the skin.
  5. Pursing the lips: Regular sipping drinks through straws, cigarettes and sour expressions can all lead to wrinkling around mouth. Even though it is a gradual process, it is going to leave a mark. Say bye to pursing of the lips to get rid of unnecessary wrinkling.

Hello, body lice are common parasites that can infect a human host. Body lice, Pediculus humanus corporis, is a louse and is the same species that infects the human head as head lice, except this time it lives on the clothing of the individual. Scabies, Sarcoptes scabiei, is a mite that lives on or in the human skin. Both scabies and body lice live off human blood and both can cause intense itching. Hello, follow this home remedy:- 1.Mix a crushed garlic clove (or garlic powder) with some table salt or black salt and apply it directly on the affected tooth to alleviate the pain. 2.Onions have antiseptic and antimicrobial properties that control a toothache. It can provide relief from pain by killing the germs causing an infection. *At the first sign of a toothache, chew raw onion for a few minutes to relieve the pain. *If you are not able to chew it, place a piece of raw onion directly on the bad tooth or gum.

hair loss and homeopathy

BHMS
Homeopath,
hair loss and homeopathy
Hair adds a distinctiveness to our personality and there are so many different ways to style it to suit our mood and occasion. But due to factors such as pollution, stress, poor diet, etc. our mane starts to look dull and lifeless or we even start losing hair. To combat these hair woes, you always have home remedies to your rescue.

To beat hair loss
Most people are likely to experience hair loss in their 30s because at this time, hormonal change, stress and an unhealthy diet take their toll. Besides trying to correct factors leading to hair loss, adopting a few herbal remedies is also helpful in facilitating hair regrowth.

Onion and garlic
Onion and garlic have been used in traditional medicines for regrowth of hair.
Chop the onion into fine pieces and squeeze the juice out.Apply to the scalp and leave on for about 15 minutes; then rinse with a mild shampoo.
Crush a few cloves of garlic, add in a little coconut oil and boil for a few minutes.
When this mix cools down to feel warm to the touch, apply it on the scalp with a little massaging action.
Repeat this treatment two to three times a week for best results.

Coconut
When it comes to caring for your hair, coconut provides a host of ingredients that naturally condition and promote growth of hair. The milk of the coconut contains proteins, essential fats and minerals such as potassium and iron; using it regularly can reduce the breakage of hair. Coconut oil also carries the same rich ingredients and it helps to make the hair stronger right from the root, through the shaft to the tip.
Regular use of this oil to massage the scalp has a protective action against hair loss.

Henna
Known for long as a natural hair colour and conditioner in Asian countries, henna has a major role to play in strengthening hair. When combined with mustard oil, it works even better.


Hibiscus
Coconut oil and hibiscus are the secrets to the thick mane of hair we observe in people living in Kerala, India. Hibiscus has rejuvenating properties – it nourishes hair, prevents premature greying and also helps cure dandruff. Regular use of the flowers can help prevent hair loss too.
Crush a few flowers of hibiscus and mix with sesame oil or coconut oil to make a fine paste.
Apply this to the scalp and hair, leave on for a few hours and then rinse with cool water and a mild shampoo.

Homoeopathy is a safe and gentle way of treating the problem of hair fall, grey hair, dandruff etc without any side-effects.
It removes the chronicity of the problem so that hair fall does not recur again.
It promotes the overall health of the patient.
Homeopathic treatment for hair loss is a whole body approach, which is safe and gentle and eradicates the problem of hair fall from the roots. It not only prevents and treats hair fall, but also give you healthy and thick hair. Message complaints in details for treatment- Dr Rushali Angchekar

As your last mense were on 18 feb, and if you r pregnant now, you can confirm that only after 25th march. As you r having spotting since 5 days, which goes more in favour of hormonal imbalance in this month than pregnancy. There is no need to take any medicines as of now for the spotting.

For dandruff, you need to avoid dryness in the scalp. You should use scalpe shampoo in place of any other (use normally, do not over-use) oil your scalp and massage it from time to time. Keep your body hydrated. Do not scratch your head. Soothe it with oil.
