I am facing pimple problems on my face. Getting holes on face. And black spots. please advise me.

I am facing pimple problems on my face. Getting holes on face. And black spots. please advise me.
Hi I would suggest you go to a cosmetic dermatologist for the same. In the mean time you can try this treatment at home  Apply some apple cider vinegar Apple cider vinegar (available bat food stores and online) is a powerhouse when it comes to acting as an acne remedy. Why? It kills off the bacteria that may be causing all the trouble in the first place. It also becomes alkaline, and balances the pH of your skin, which in turn makes it harder for bacteria to thrive. To top it off it’s an astringent, like lemon juice, and will help dry up excess oil. Keeping that in mind, don’t overdo and dry out your skin too much. This could cause the sebaceous glands overproduce to compensate, therefore triggering an outbreak. You will need… -Pure unfiltered apple cider vinegar -Fresh water Directions Wash your face with water and pat dry. Using a ratio of 1 part vinegar to 3 parts water, dip a cotton ball into vinegar and apply it directly to the blemish. Leave on for at least 10 minutes, or overnight. Reapply several times a day, washing face thoroughly after each time. Make sure to use a moisturizer afterwards as well if you feel like your skin is getting dry.

Before starting any nourishment treatment, there is a need of removing the dead cells those have formed already due to improper maintenance. If you wouldn’t have taken care of your neck that much, it would have filled with more and more of waste accumulated dead cells by now. Let us scrub away them with a magical kitchen ingredient called ‘oats’. You have to simply grind oats coarsely and add a dash of tomato puree to it. Make sure not to grind oats as powder fine powder as it might loose the exfoliating properties. Apply this mixture evenly on to your neck skin and leave it for about 20 minutes. After that, wet your finger tips and start scrubbing your neck gently; wash away with cold water and moisturizer. This process can be followed twice or thrice a week to achieve faster results in removing dead skin cells and dark patches from the neck. •Take a resolution to wash your neck every time you wash your face. •Never hide the facial moisturizer from your neck skin. •Heat almond oil and massage your neck once in a month for better blood circulation and glow. •Doesn’t your neck mind the harmful UV rays? Your neck skin needs sunscreen too, so never say no to sunscreen lotion and make your neck suffer. •Last but not the least; do not wear allergic metal ornaments or other street bought chains on your neck as they cause neck darkening.

Hello- unwanted hairs in the body might be due to hormonal disturbances. Going for modern drugs and laser therapy might further ruin your condition. Try this treatment instead- a) kuberaksha vati 1 tab twice. B) tab hyponidd 1 tab thrice c) fal sarpi 1 tsp twice before meals. D) go for basti panchakarma by your nearby ayurvedic doctor.

*your usual hair dye has large doses of ammonia, which changes hair texture, dries out the scalp and almost leads to hair fall. Natural products like shikakai and amla are better than chemical compositions of manufactured shampoos. *hair fall, dandruff and tendency for gray hair are dependent on several factors. We have good treatment in homoeopathy without causing adverse effects. These medicines are given internally, promote healthy growth of hair and prevent hair fall. Take homoeopathic medicine acid phos 30 twice daily and give feedback after 20 days.
