Use tea tree face wash and toner twice daily. Use sunscreen with spf 30 daily. Use natural face pack of multani mitti and lemon 2 times a week. You can also use apple cider vinegar with mother for 5 mins after washing your face and splash it clean with water. Most important is diet- do not eat junk, eat more vegetables and fruits especially with vitamin c.

I m 19 years old I have skin problems. I have white spots on my face. Is there any solution for this?
Hello,White patches on your skin are a common type of depigmented skin lesion associated with an infection, allergy, or autoimmune disorder. One common cause of white spots, or hypopigmentation, is a fungal infection of the skin known as tinea versicolor (associated with other symptoms, such as itching or dryness on or around the white patches). This fungal infection is not contagious and can be treated easily with over-the-counter medications. Please tell me other symptoms like about sensation on the area, since how long do you have this patch, any family history of white patch, etc. In the mean time you can take cal phos 6x, 4 tabs twice daily. Do send me a clear photo of the affected area.Thanks.

I am suffering from black circles under eyes so please give any suggestion sir thank you.
Genetics are the biggest culprit. If you inherit fair or thin skin under the eyes, it’s more obvious when blood pools there (often because of slower circulation from lack of sleep). This accumulation causes fragile capillaries to stretch and leak. Age is another factor. Over time, skin loses collagen and thins, so veins show through more prominently. Sunbathing speeds up this process by breaking down collagen and mottling skin color. Seasonal allergies are to blame for many people. “They trigger the release of histamines in the body, which in turn inflame blood vessels and cause swelling,” says Ranella Hirsch, a dermatologist in Boston. To determine why your circles happen, gently stretch the skin under your eyes. If that area becomes darker, the circles are probably due to genetics or aging. If the color doesn’t change, UV rays or allergies are probably the cause. USE A RETINOID Look for one that's especially formulated for the eye area, like RoC Retinol Correxion Eye Cream. The vita • min A derivative will fade pigment and increase collagen production to make skin less transparent so dark circles are less noticeable. For reatment and any querries ask privetly

How to Take Care of Your Hair?

How to Take Care of Your Hair?

How to Take Care of Your Hair?

Long Hair:-

Long hair is an all time cherished dream of girls and women. I have been seeing patients of hair loss and they would always recall their good days when they used to have good lengthy hair. They would invariably lament about the loss of long hair they were having in teenage and before marriage. This is the type of concern women have for their hair. Having lusty, shining, long hair is a sign of beauty and feminine grace. Some precautions have to be taken for all types of hair, which are briefed in following heading but long hair need utmost care so that they are not lost easily.

  • No brushing should be done immediately after washing.
  • Winding the hair, encasing them in rubber bands and then fixing clips or hooks should be done lightly and never too tightly.
  • Winding the hair into tight plaits and then wearing chignon (coil of hair worn at the back of head) pulls the hair form scalp. I have seen many patients, especially girls, having this habit that ultimately ends in bald spots in head.
  • Similar is the case with the girls who bind their back hairs in ponytails or buns. One should not confine to one style and go on changing the style so that the hair do not experience a direct pull in this fashion everyday and get pulled.
  • Regarding types of curlers, rollers, combs, brushes, etc., these topics are discussed here below under different types of hair. Those rules are applicable for long hair,

Oily Hair:-

  • If you do not apply little amount of oil over the hair regularly, you will loose the hair and their shine.
  • The best is to adopt the homeopathic method, ‘like cures like’ Apply little oil to the greasy scalp. Since the scalp itself is producing more of oil, the presence of oil on the scalp would stop production of oil from within. The imbalance will thus be overruled.
  • If you are washing the hair twice in a week (women), make it thrice a week. Apply some oil, massage it into scalp and leave it for at least one hour on your scalp before washing it with shampoo. Men should do it five times a week.
  • If you are using harsh, highly scented and strong hair-care products like soaps, shampoos and oils, leave them.
  • Improve your diet to make it nutritional.
  • Take half a bottle of distilled water and add some lemon juice in it. Now rinse your hair with this mixture to remove oiliness of hair.
  • It is always in your own interest that you should consult a beauty parlor when you do not find relief after testing the mentioned methods. No relief means that you need help of a conditioner to remove/rectify oiliness.

 

Dry Hair:-

  • Use of heat-styling appliances; dryers for drying the hair after washing and over-exposure to the sun should   be avoided.
  • Take nutritional food.
  • Do not adopt rigorous cleaning methods or routine. Use a good hair oil to massage the hair. If the dryness is more, the hair become brittle. Do not massage the    scalp vigorously.
  • Steaming the hair once a fortnight also helps in dry hairs. Massaging and steaming as a follow-up gives good result.
  • Do not wash the hair frequently with shampoo.
  • Do not comb or brush strongly.

 

WAVY HAIR (Hairs Having Waves):-

  • Wavy hairs are not curly but have waves as you find in the sea or sand dunes.
  •   Those who have wavy hair, they should wash their hair with a shampoo that has shine enhancing gradients.
    •   After washing, dry the hair in natural ways and separate the hair with comb that has wide-teeth so that there is no entanglement and    pulling while combing the hair.
  • Wavy hair needs good conditioners and more care than straight hair.

       

Straight Hair:-

  • Straight hair lies flat on the scalp.
  • Since such hair lie flat, they gather more dust. Naturally these straight hair are mostly dense and  hence they need deep cleaning shampoo.
  • Such hair needs at least three washing a week.
  • They are more prone to develop dandruff.
  • Oiling and massaging the scalp is essential and it should be one night before washing schedule.

 

Curly Hair:-

  • Curly hair get dry very soon. 
  • For washing curly hair, a shampoo with good moisture-gradient is necessary.
  • To bring a shine to curly hair, dry them with towel and expose to sun or natural air. In curly hairs, fingers reach easily up to the scalp. Use your fingers to disentangle them and then use wide toothed comb or brush to keep them at place.

Use Homoeopathy for any type of hair problem.

I am suffering from severe tinea cruris since a year. It goes away if I apply tropical anti fungal. But it grows back once I stop application.

Tinea cruris is a fungal infection. Fungus always needs humidity and wet area to penetrate. So, just do not give it a chance by keeping the affected area dry.More common chance of recurrence is due to tight clothing, poor ventilation of that area by wearing frenchie. So, wear loose cotton clothes, old style undergarment and keep the area as dry as possible. Dry it with good cloth. Whenever the area is found wet, you can apply Abzorb powder (Clotrimazole). If its coming back again , you should also take some oral antifungal medicines along with the topical treatment.

Hi, Be happy from inside and taking nutritious, healthy food and daily yoga or some kind of exercises, it will be automatically reflected on your face. Yes, the colour which is inherited from your parents/ ancestors, cannot be changed, but you can try to get glow on your face!! Daily Regime: Apart from these, you do follow CTMP, i.e., cleansing, toning, moisturising and protection (apply liberally sunscreen with SPF-30 ? a thick layer of Bakson's Suncare cream may be, 20-30 minutes before going out daily and repeat it's application after every 3-4hrs.) after washing your face daily; use the products as per your skin type. This will change the skin texture and skin tone. In case you do have tanning, apply honey with a dash of lime on your face. Eat right and healthy that too on time, relieve your stress/ tensions, sleep well, stop smoking, as this restricts blood flow to your face and leaves you with a greyish complexion. lead a healthy lifestyle! Apart from this, avoid anger, anxiety, fear which increases stress hormone in the body and subsequently makes your complexion darker! (Hormonal imbalances also plays a major role). If the dull and dark skin tone is due to any underlying ailment or diseases, need to look into the matter. Diet: -Increase your Vitamin C intake (lemon,orange,gooseberry,etc.Fruits/juices, strawberries, sweet peppers, tomatoes, cantaloupe, and green peas). - Eat more Vitamin A (nonfat milk, oysters, and egg yolks, carrots, watermelon, papaya, tomatoes, or other dark colored produce) . If you feel your skin is weak or not tight enough, that usually suggests a lack of Vitamin A. Medicine: You can also use homoeopathic cream - Medicynth's Whitch Hazel daily at night. Home remedies: Apply fresh-squeezed lemon juice to your entire face and neck. Leave it on for 10 minutes and then wash it off with lukewarm water. After this, rub cucumber slices on your skin to soften and moisturize it. Do this daily or every other day. Another option is squeeze the juice of one-half lemon and mix one to two tablespoons of raw honey in it. Apply it on your face, leave it on for 15 to 20 minutes and then rinse it off.

Hair fall is due to infection in scalp skin or hormonal effects also sometimes its genetic cause, if infective then easily goes into hairs follicles & its root and results in hair fall, for control on hair fall you have to control on infections, medicines takes time to remove infections due to less blood supply in scalp skin. But fully curable with proper medicines and care.

I am loosing my hair quickly. While combing my hairs. please help me what I should do?
Losing up-to 50 to 100 hairs a day is normal and you should not be worrying too much about it. In fact once you enter adolescence, the hormonal changes that is a part of adolescence will trigger hair fall. But if you feel it is more than a 100 hairs per day or if you feel your hair has become thin or if your hairline is receding then yes you have to work on it 1. Diet – this is the key factor in the prevention and treatment of hair fall. Have a diet rich in fruits, vegetables. Dates, raisins and almonds are recommended too. 2. Hair oiling and Hair wash – oiling your hair is important. This nourishes the scalp and prevents hair fall. Use a combination of coconut oil, almond oil and castor oil. Heat it. Apply to the scalp. Massage gently for five minutes with your fingertips. Leave it on for an hour and then wash it off with a mild herbal shampoo. Do this thrice a week for best results.
