Acne and black heads on my face and back. No any face wash suited me. What can I do. For blackheads.

General Physician,
Acne and black heads on my face and back. No any face wash suited me. What can I do. For blackheads.
Bentonite clay is a mineral rich healing substance that has been used for centuries to treat a number of ailments, chiefly skin related. Because of its molecules “electrical charge” when wet, it does an amazing job of drawing out oils or other impurities locked in your pores. When you apply the mask your skin gets to drink in all the minerals, while the clay simultaneously draws out the blackhead. It also helps with circulation, which helps with overall skin tone and health. You can mix the clay with water or apple cider vinegar, maybe sticking to the former if you have dry or sensitive skin. Experiment! This mask will make you feel like your face is tightening as it dries. Whether or not you let it dry entirely is up to your preference

Dear lybrate-user, start taking black til (seasam) with a glass of lukewarm milk early morning. Avoid pickles, spices, oily, greesy food items, too much of salt in food shud be avoided. Start avle ka murabba daily. Also have a high protien rich diet e. G. Pulses, dry fruits, black gram, ground nut etc, white of egg (if you eat egg). Also oil your hair with good herbal oil and wash with herbal shamppoo - avoid shampoos with high acid contents. As far as ayurveda's therapy is concerned - start with shirodhara with herbal oil and nasyam therapy for atleast 15 days. This will greatly help. Do gentle massage with herbal hair oil daily night for 15 minutes.

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 for 5 minutes 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.

Hello, parkinson's desease can cause skin changes making skin extremely dry. It could also be a side-effect of a medicine as the medicines given for parkinson's are strong. For cracked and painful heels, the solution is moisturizing and nuetralising the dryness. I don't know what medicines you have used, -use polysporin cracked heels cream or put vaseline petroleum jelly on the cracks, put in good amount. -massage feet with a lot of moisturiser. -try to scrape the dry skin by dipping feet in hot water for some time.(avoid the areas that are painful) - never let the feet dry, apply moisturiser and vaseline repeatedly. -at last, in the night before bed, make her wear cotton socks after moisturising. -do not walk bare feet, wear soft chappal, if possible, wear socks most of the time. You will have to help her for applying moisturiser and make her follow all the instructions as she is suffering from parkinson's and might not be able to take so much care on her own.

I have pimples and dark spots on my face how can I remove them and tell the precautions.

BAMS

I have pimples and dark spots on my face how can I remove them and tell the precautions.
These are the best methods to cure pimples & dark spots-: • To control the sebum (oily) secretion you should maintain your hormonal level. Because imbalance in hormone level causes excessive sebum (oil) production and causes pimples. So do not take stress and do exercise daily such as running, jogging and long breathing exercises. • Use oil free face wash and drink 7 -8 glass of water daily. • Do not touch your pimple because your finger transfer bacteria to it and make it worse. If you touch it then clean your face with water. Touch your face very less. • you can use a face pack of fuller's earth (multani mitti) with rose water one time in a day for seven days. It removes toxins from skin and remove pimples.,• • Give Steam your face to open the pores, which in turn clear the skin. Steam your face for 3-5 minutes daily. • You can take 2 teaspoon of SAAFI SYRUP daily for 1 month for clear face. • Take 20 gm powder of Black pepper and 50 gm of Amla powder. Mix it and take 1/2 tea spoon of this mixed powder daily with luke warm water for 15 days for pimple free skin. • Take Vitamin-A rich diet & you can take Vitamin-A capsule of 25, 000 I. you. Only under the supervision of a doctor. • use a mild moisturiser for your skin only in winters..

Dear Lybrate user, leech therapy is useful for hairfall as well as it also promotes new hair growth. Generally it takes couple of weeks to reduce hairfall and abt 3 months for new hair growth.

Feel free to consult privately for further information and treatment guidelines. These are some basic things which will help you to till. Hair fall is often associated with stress, tension, lack of nutritious diet, excessive spicy and salty food, Chinese food, hormonal imbalances etc. please avoid the above mentioned things if any. Have a good nutritious healthy meal twice day. Consume seasonal fresh fruits daily. Eat couple of dates and figs daily which will help in strengthening roots of hairs. Ayurvedic medicines gives good relief in hair fall as well as promote new hair growth. please take these primary medications to lower hair fall. 1) bhrungaraj vati500 mg twice day 2) lakshadi guggul 500 mg twice day 3) sanshamani vati 500 mg twice day 4) nilibhringyadi oil for local application Do remember to take these medicines for a month.

Hi effective method to treat dandruff would be to combine 2 tablespoons of fresh apple juice with 2 tablespoons of warm water. Dab this on the hair and keep it for 10-15 minutes before rinsing. Do this for once or twice a week to cure dandruff. Apply ketoconazole lotion on your scalp once in a week. Apply bhringraj oil on your scalp then give hot water fomentation. 1-1 drop of cow ghee in both nostrils at night time before sleep. Take pranacharya allergin capsule 1-1 twice a day. Take lots of proteins like soyabean. Egg white. Etc.avoid tea. Coffee.spicy food. Fermented food. Junk food. Apply only ayurvedic shampoo on your scalp. Do pranayama early morning.
