Your symptoms probably have nothing to do with hiv. It doesn't develop so quickly. Also since your tests have been negative I think there is nothing much to worry about. But it would be better to know the hiv status of your partner.

Ayurvedic Tips For Healthy Skin!

Ayurvedic Tips For Healthy Skin!

Ayurveda is a system of medicine that is based on natural herbs and lifestyle changes. It is a holistic method that focuses on rooting out the cause rather than just focusing on the symptoms. This system of medicine is completely natural; hence there are no side effects.

If you wish to keep your skin healthy, then here are some ayurvedic tips to do that:

  1. Include nuts and seeds: It is very important that you include seeds and nuts in your diet; they contain omega-3 fatty acids, which are essential for the body. These foods also help in preventing 'Vata' imbalance in the body and provide good content of healthy fats.
  2. Include vegetables: Include vegetables like cabbage, broccoli and carrots in your diet as they provide the body with essential nutrients. They contain antioxidants and trace elements such as zinc and folate that enhance your wellbeing.
  3. Tea: Consume green tea as it helps in boosting metabolism and improving your skin health. Add spices,such as ginger if you are affected by cold and cough, as it helps in alleviating the symptoms. It helps in improving the health of your skin.
  4. Exercise: You should exercise on a regular basis as it has multiple health benefits. It increases muscle mass in the body and helps maintain optimal weight levels. It also increases blood circulation in the body which is good for your skin. You can do a workout of basic yoga postures to avail the benefits of exercise.
  5. Meditate: Meditation has been shown to reduce stress levels in the body which is directly linked with skin health. Too much stress may lead to increased production of free radicals in the body, thus leading to skin damage. You may start off with basic breathing exercises, gradually moving on to other techniques such as mindfulness meditation.
  6. Sleep: Sleep is essential for good skin health as it revitalizes the body. You need to aim for at least six hours of sleep to reap its benefits. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an ayurveda.

Vitiligo can be controlled with tablets and creams are available which are supposed to be combined with phototherapy that is sunlight. Unless we control the immune process which is destroying your melanocytes, the progress will not stop. Please send me photos of your current patches do that I can start treatment for you.

Hello, If you like you can take homoeopathic medicine for your scar marks which is very safe. Apply Homoeopathic medicine – Thiosinaminum Q few drops mixed in a glycerin solution on scars that are visible (as it is less greasy, so is more easily absorbed into the skin). Also take Causticum 200 orally twice daily for 4weeks.

Three month ago one morning my stool became hard though I did not feel any pain any burning sense till little blood comes out with stool. In the evening of that day when I visited toilet no blood came with stool, no pain, no soreness. SO my question is blood may come from inside sometime if stool becomes hard? Or sometime blood may come with stool without apparent cause? Blood came only for that day after that day blood do not come with stool still now.

Hard stool often causes a fissure in the anal canal & this may bleed & is also painful. If you are complaining of painless passage of blood on defaecation then you may perhaps have piles. So please consult a surgeon for the necessary assessment for an appropriate diagnosis, & management.

1. Milk for Skin Lightening Milk is a rich source of calcium. Calcium, along with many important functions in our body, also regulates normal skin color. It does so by stimulating melanocytes, the skin cells that produces melanin pigment. Also, when you provide higher calcium content to the upper epidermis of your skin, you help maintain effective barrier against moisture loss. This prevents skin from going dry which can also affect your skin making it darker. Milk also contains lactic acid which reduces skin’s pigmentation making your skin lighter in complexion. Get this: • Milk (preferably cow’s or goat’s milk)- 1 bowl • Washcloth Do this: • Take the bowl of milk and warm it a little. You need just warm milk and not hot. • Soak your washcloth in this. • Take out the washcloth and wring it out to discard excessive milk. While the cloth should be fully soaked in milk, it should not drip. • Now gently rub your skin with this cloth. • Once the cloth gets dry, soak it again in the milk and repeat the process. • Repeat the cycle of dipping and rubbing for 3-4 times. • Do this daily, preferably after taking bath. • After a couple of weeks, you may do this twice a week instead of doing it daily. ________________________________________ 2. Yogurt for Skin Lightening Lactic acid is a known remedy for natural skin lightening. This acid is the most gentle alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs). Alpha hydroxy acids act as exfoliants by contributing in rapid shedding of dead skin cells on the surface. This leads to cell renewal which in turn removes dullness from your skin giving you a brightening effect. As a skin lightening agent, lactic acid helps bleach the hyperpigmented skin by suppressing the production of melanin. Therefore, using yogurt loaded with lactic acid, makes sense when it comes to skin lightening with natural remedies. Ways to use yogurt for skin lightening 1. Take some plain, unflavored and unsweetened, yogurt. Rub this gently on to your skin for a couple of minutes. Then leave the yogurt on your skin for another few minutes. Now wash off using lukewarm water. Repeat this daily. 2. Mix yogurt, lemon juice and oatmeal to get make a face mask. Apply this to your skin. Leave it there for 15-20 minutes before washing off with water. 3. Add 1-2 tsp of honey to 1 tablespoon of yogurt. Apply this to your skin. Leave it for 10-15 minutes. Wash off with water. Repeat daily. 3. Lemon Juice for Skin Lightening Lemon juice is a natural astringent and has natural bleaching properties. Thus, if you have an oily skin and if you want to lighten your skin color, lemon juice is just right for you. Its astringent property will tighten your pores reducing the sebum secretion and its natural acidic composition will bleach your skin to whiten it. As lemon juice is also rich in vitamin C, it leads to production of new skin cells so that you get rid of all dullness and have bright skin. Ways to use lemon juice for skin lightening 1. Take a lemon and squeeze out its juice. Dip a cotton ball in this lemon juice and apply it on your face or dark skin anywhere else. Leave it for 20-30 minutes and then wash off with water. Repeat daily. 2. If you want to save yourself from the hassle of squeezing out the lemon juice, just cut a lemon in two halves and rub one of the lemon half gently on your face for 10-15 minutes. Then leave the juice on your face for another 10-15 minutes before washing it off. 3. For oily skin, make this face mask which will also lighten your skin. Mix 1 tsp of lemon juice with 2 tsp of rosewater and 1 tsp of Fuller’s earth. Make a paste by mixing them and apply to your face. Leave for 15-20 minutes and then wash off. 4. If your skin is dry, mix a tsp each of lemon juice, honey and olive oil. Now apply this to your skin. Massage gently for a couple of minutes. Now leave this on your skin for 10-15 minutes. Wash off with lukewarm water. Precaution: Never go out in sun after applying lemon juice to your skin. Lemon juice makes your skin ultra sensitive to sunrays that can, I n fact, lead to more discoloration of skin. Also do not use lemon juice if you have open wounds on your skin. 4. Rice Powder for Skin Lightening Women from Asian countries have long used rice water and rice powder to tone and whiten their skin. Modern science too agrees upon the positive effects of rice extract on mature skin as well as its capacity to lighten skin. Rice is a rich source of para aminobenzoic acid (PABA) which acts as a natural sunscreen. When you consume PABA, it raises the level of Vitamin C in your body. Rice also has ferulic acid, an antioxidant, which when added to Vitamin C and E, provides you excellent protection against sun. A study conducted with rice bran extracts has proven its hydrating, skin lightening and anti aging effects on skin. How to make skin lightening rice powder mask? Get this: • Uncooked rice- ½ – 1 cup • Milk- enough to make paste • Warm water Do this: • Grind the rice to get its fine powder. • Add enough milk to the fine rice powder to make a paste. If you are allergic to milk, you can even use water to make this paste. • Apply this rice powder paste to your face and neck. • Leave for 20-30 minutes. • Wash off with warm water. • Repeat 2-3 times a week.

I used to take vitamin E tablets seldom. But now I've been taking them (vit E capsules) tablets regularly from 1 week. It's really working on my skin and I found that pimples which I had before are getting healed and there are no further symptoms of any pimple till now but I'm worried if I can orally take this tablet regularly. And what if I stop taking the capsules suddenly. Will the pimples attack me again. Will I have to continue taking tablets regularly to prevent pimples. Can you please tell me the side effects and Benefits of taking vitamin E capsules orally and by applying​ on to the skin. thank you.

Vitamin E oil has powerful antioxidant properties that make it highly effective in treating various skin conditions including acne. You may have noticed that many skin care products such as creams and lotions include Vitamin E oil as an essential ingredient. This is because it has many wonderful benefits such as delaying the signs of aging, hydrating the skin, eliminating acne scars, etc. However, if you are considering oral Vitamin E supplements for acne and pimples, there are certain things that you should keep in mind. Firstly, think about whether you prefer a supplement that is natural or synthetic. Experts recommend trying to find a supplement that is a natural blend of tocotrienols and tocopherols as it is more easily absorbable. Vitamin E oil in the natural form is known to be twice as active as it is in the synthetic form The second thing that you need to keep in mind is the amount of the oil you take in. The recommended daily allowance or RDA is slightly more than 22 IU for adults ; however, it is commonly sold in dosages that are much higher.It is believed that taking higher doses can cause a purportedly higher risk of bleeding, particularly among patients with Vitamin K deficiency or those who take blood-thinning medications. Keep your intake below 400 IU to keep this danger away. Thus it is always good to make dietary modifications rather than taking supplements for a prolonged time period. As mentioned, a great way to get Vitamin E is to include foods that are rich in it in your diet. Foods like almonds, beans, broccoli, peanuts, hazelnuts, sweet potatoes, yams, wheat germ, raw honey and sunflower seeds are rich in this vital nutrient. Another way to use Vitamin E oil for acne prone skin is to apply it topically. As mentioned already, it is often used as an ingredient in soaps, lotions, creams and other beauty products. It works excellently as a moisturizer, and its antioxidant properties are believed to protect the skin against fine lines and wrinkles as well as sun damage. When it is topically applied on the skin with acne or pimples, Vitamin E oil works with fantastic results. However, if you already have oily skin, it may not be suitable for you.

Saffron or “kesar” is the ultimate answer to all skin problems. It has been used for ages as an important ingredient for skin care. This precious spice has amazing anti-bacterial properties that help in purifying skin from infection causing germs. It also helps in lightening suntan, skin spots and hyperpigmentation, improves the quality of skin and renders a healthy glow to it. The lactic acid present in buttermilk works effectively in lightening brown and black spots by removing the dead skin cells and revealing the healthy skin underneath. The benefits of aloe vera for skin and hair are well known. It works as an effective natural remedy to cure various skin problems and its use as a medicine can be traced back to 6000 years ago. Its powerful anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial property helps in treating skin infections, pimples, and acne. It also removes dead skin cells and encourages the regeneration of new skin cells that lightens dark spots and pigmentation. It also works a nourishing natural moisturizer that hydrates the skin and prevents moisture loss to give it a fresh and rejuvenated appearance at all times. The abundance of antioxidants in cucumber enhances the regeneration of new skin cells that replaces the dead cells and lightens dark spots and pigmentation noticeably.
