How to lighten the dark underarms, dark elbow, and the back of the neck naturally.

How to lighten the dark underarms, dark elbow, and the back of the neck naturally.
Hello. Hyperpigmentation could be because of many reasons. So, get thorough body check up done and share the reports with me. Meantime, you can start using Bioforce's Blooume - 55 ointment (for clear skin) twice daily and also use Bakson's Suncare Sunscreen, 20-30 minutes before stepping out under the sun. Use home-made remedies: - Take 1 tbsp of fuller's earth (multani mitti) + a dash of lime + bit of rosewater – apply this on your face till it gets dried up, then rinse it off. - Take 1 tsp of Alum (or fitkari), make it slightly wet with water and apply this on your wet face, spread it well; let it dry and rinse it off. Alum remove your excessive moisture or oil and it also tightens the skin's tonicity.

Suffering from Dark Circles? 5 Effective Therapies that can do Wonders

Suffering from Dark Circles? 5 Effective Therapies that can do Wonders

Suffering from dark circles under your eyes? Here are effective therapies that can do wonders!
Are dark circles under the eyes caused due to stress, or is the stress about dark circles worrying you and making them further darker?! On a serious note though, there are definite cosmetic therapies that can help you get rid of the dark circles under your eyes. Dark circles can be caused by issues ranging from thin skin in the lower eyelids to poor circulation to pigment variations, and therefore the reason should be identified properly so that the treatment can be done accordingly.

For some people, poor blood flow to the eyes can be the reason for dark circles too.

  1. These people would benefit from using double pillows so that blood does not build up under the eyes. In the morning, a cold compress (a towel soaked in cold water) can be applied to narrow the blood vessels and reduce flow.
  2. Alternately, eye creams with caffeine can be used to narrow the blood vessels.
  3. Creams with Arnica which have anti-inflammatory properties are also beneficial in reducing the under-eye darkness.
  4. Creams with green tea or grape seed oil improve capillary wall thickness and thereby promote smoother flow of blood.
  5. Diet can be modified to include flavonol-rich chocolates and Omega-3 fatty acids rich foods like walnuts and salmons.

Make-up tips:

A good under-eye moisturizing cream with glycerin, sodium hyaluronate, vitamin E, vitamin K can be used. These help in constricting veins and capillaries and also improve skin hydration. A yellow or gold-based concealer that reflects light should be used followed by translucent face powder. There are also minor surgical procedures offered to reduce the effect of dark circles. Read on to know more.

  1. Laser and/or skin resurfacing: Laser can be used to trigger the superficial layers to produce more collagen and improve overall skin quality.
  2. Use of dermal fillers: Hyaluronic acid can be injected into the skin under the eye bags. Where the skin is very thin, this will make the dark circles less visible, and the effect can last up to 2 years.
  3. Grafting fat particles: The fat can be grafted from another part of the body and injected under the eyelid. This again would reduce the effect of dark circles.
  4. Cheek lift: If you are having dark circles in addition to eye puffiness and deep nasolabial folds, a cheek lift is a good option. This will produce a more permanent solution to your dark circles.
  5. Blepharoplasty: The next invasive method is the eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty. The skin of the upper and lower eyelids and the skin around the eye are treated to reduce the effect of dark circles in this procedure.

While dark circles are definitely an issue, there are ways to manage this effectively. A word of caution though, all these can be undertaken only after you engage in a detailed discussion with a dermatologist.

Apply almond oil on your face and massage for 3-5 min at night. By doing above thing you will get good result.

There are many reasons why you may have black spots. Sun tan, overweight, pigmentation disorders like acanthosis or melasma, nutritional deficiency etc are some conditions. Unless someone examines you, we cannot know the cause. Unless we find out the cause it is difficult and pointless to treat. Please send photos with detailed history in private chat for proper treatment. Use a good sunscreen and start exercising. Take lots of fruits and green vegetables in your diet.

Yes glutathione injections are now a daysfastest method to get a fair natural desired skin colour .GLUTATHIONE is the main antioxidant of the liver. As the main antioxidant of the liver it helps in cleaning the blood and clearing toxins. It is also an antioxidant inside every cell. Results depend upon Quality of the injectable, Adjunctive therapies such as vitamin C and collagen, Duration of treatment, Frequency of treatment, Quality of professional care. But it has various side effects if not done properly or abuse like taking multiple injections in single week to get desired results fast. Side effect includes: Stomach upset and diarrhea, Nausea/ vomiting, Hair loss, Numbness and many more.

Dear Dr,

Bauhinia variegata based herbal preparations have the potential to melt away lipomas in long run. But it's safe n no side effects. Lipomas also do not come back easily.

I have sunburn spots (around one inch on each arm) on both of my arms. I get strong itching sensation quite frequently now. Especially when I get any sun exposure, even with sun screen on. The spots are very dry and sometimes become red. The texture of those spots is also different from the rest of the skin. I have regularly used aloe vera gel on these but it's not helping. I have tried calamine lotion too. What should I do?

For the active lesions. You need to use a steroid cream for short duration. With moisturizer as base cream. Once lesions decrease you hav to use a sunscreen with spf 30.2-3 hrs once during the day UnTil you start sunscreen. Protect your arms from sunlight.
