Moisturise your skin with creams and foot care creams and use cotton socks at night after applying the cream 3. Drink plenty of water, eat all seasonal fruits, veggies and salads 4. Take proper night's sleep 5. Avoid stress or discuss at length during your case taking so that I can help you handle it better.

My hairs are getting whiting so what I should do for it please tell me?

M. sc Psychology, BHMS
Homeopath,
Here you did not mention your age. If its premature, then use baryta carb 3x thrice, daily along with jaborandi hair oil and with other dietary additions. Try to take daily soaked fenugreek seeds (8-10) in morning with empty stomach. Let me know for further t/t after 2 weeks. Once check health tips under my profile in lybrate.

Start taking black til (Seasam) with a glass of lukewarm milk early morning. avoid pickles, spices, oily, greesy food items. Start avle ka murabba. Also have a high protien rich diet e.g. Pulses, Dry fruits, Black gram, Ground nut etc. also oil ur 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. Although some herbal medicines might also help you but after proper history taking. For that u may consult me privately over Lyberate. Please update with ur valuable feedback.

Hello Lybrate user. Skin is also a part of your body system. For a healthy skin you must keep yourself healthy from inside. Eat healthy food which must include adequate protein, moderate carbohydrate and less fat. Eat lots of fruits, vegetables, milk, egg white, rajma,soybean, almonds in your diet. Regular exercise and proper sleep is must. At least 10 - 12 glass of water per day is must. Avoid too much of cosmetic products to your skin.

Homoeopathic cream ANTIMARKS CREAM ( BIOVALLEY) Apply twice daily in circular fashion Egg white works well in order to lighten the pimple marks and the pimple scars. Take a fresh egg and break the egg, separate the egg white from the egg yolk. Apply this egg white on the pimple marks. After 10-15 minutes, wash with the cold water. Baking Soda Take some baking soda. Mix some water with the baking soda and apply this mixture on the pimple marks. Baking soda serves as an agent that carries out micro dermabrasion on the skin and helps to clear the pimple marks on the face and body. Tomatoes Tomatoes are rich in Vitamin A, which helps nourish the dead skin while rejuvenating it. Vitamin A helps by healing the skin and by helping facilitate quick growth of the skin while removing the scars. Using tomatoes to help heal the scars on the skin is not a lengthy process, but it is rather simple. Just take a tomato, slice it and make it into a pulp. Apply the pulp on the face and leave it on for twenty minutes’ time. Then, wash it off with some warm water. You could also mix cucumbers with it. Make a paste out of all of cucumbers and tomatoes and apply as a face mask. Leave it on for half an hour and wash it with some cool water. Follow this method two days at a time every week and observe the results.

I find this one the hardest! Caffeine is a diuretic, which makes you urinate out more liquid than you take in causing dehydration. Dehydration of your body and hair roots is another key reason for hair loss. Replace your daily coffee intake with a fruit beverage, milk or any other non-caffeinated drink to those shiny and healthy hair.

I have stubborn acne on ny face which wont go i've visited multiple doctors and tried natural supplements as well but nothing seems to work. I drink at least 5 liters of water daily and take blood purifiers. I don't have oily skin. I've been prescribed actame facewash, isoin pill & a gel. But these leave no effect.

For pimples it's important to wash your face twice daily to remove impurities, dead skin cells, and extra oil from your skin's surface, avoid touching your face or propping your cheek or chin on your hands. Not only can you spread bacteria, you can also irritate the already inflamed facial skin. Never pick or pop pimples with your fingers, as it can lead to infection and scarring. A dietary therapy for pimples can also help a lot. I am a registered dietitian and a doctor who will help you in your skin problems reply back for private consultation.
