Take healthy balanced diet including whole grains, green leafy vegetables, fruits and nuts. Drink 10 to 12 glasses of water daily. Take a sound sleep of 8 hours minimum. Apply bakson's under eye cream on the dark circles. Apply Ramdev's aloe vera gel on the whole face at night. Home remedy:-Cucumbers have skin-lightening and mild astringent properties that help fix those raccoon eyes naturally. Plus, they have a soothing and refreshing effect. Cut a fresh cucumber into thick slices and chill them in the refrigerator for 30 minutes. Put the slices onto the affected skin area for about 10 minutes. Wash the area with water. Repeat twice daily for about a week or more. Another option is to mix cucumber juice with lemon juice in equal amounts. Use a cotton ball to apply the mixture on the affected skin. Leave it on for 15 minutes and then wash it off with water. Follow this remedy daily for at least one week.

These are the methods to treat fastly pimples: • Imbalance in hormone level causes excessive sebum production and causes acne. So do not take stress and do exercise daily such as running, jogging and long breathing exercises. • Do YOGASANA daily. Especially do SINHASANA & SARVANGASANA daily. • 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. • Take cucumber and papaya pulp. Mix it well and add 1 tablespoon Turmeric. Make a paste and apply it on face and leave it for 15 minutes. • Steam your face to open the pores, which in turn clear the skin. Steam your face for a couple of minutes. • Take 2 teaspoon of RAKTASHODAK SYRUP of BAIDYANATH company once a day. Be healthy.

Know the causes and treatment for your acne

Hi this is Dr. Chavi Bansal and I am practicing homeopathy at Home Mutual Normal Homeopathy in Pitampura. Let us have a brief discussion about acne.

Acne is one of the most commonly seen skin diseases especially in young individuals and teenagers. It can manifest from blackheads or whiteheads to pustule and to reduce depending on its severity it is more common in young individuals or teenagers because the hormonal changes occurring during puberty which leads to much secretion of oil at the end this all gets clot into the pores into the skin which leads to secondary infection but this hormonal changes does not occur only during puberty.

They can also happen during pregnancy or because of prolonged use of contraceptives or in certain other conditions as well but it is not the case that it happens only because of the hormonal changes it can also develop because of certain triggering factors like much intake of oily food, poor food or lifestyle. Very much stress and polluted or unhealthy environment as well this acne does not only manifest physically, acne has also been found to produce deeper impact individuals leading to much other symptoms like prolong stress.

It has been found that many of the teenagers go into depression they have a tendency to develop low confidence as they feel embarrassed and they don't then. They go into the favor for isolation and so the treatment should also be targeted toward treating the condition in a deep way only coming to the home with. The treatment of acne homeopathic treatment is the most strongly suggestive treatment for acne not because it controls the oil secretion. But because it addresses the basic constitutional tendency to develop acne. It controls the hormonal imbalances and it also controls the secondary infections it is very well known to everyone that homeopathy produces the best results in the cases of acne and it is not the case that take very long intervals to get better.

It just depends on the Intensity Severity in the duration of your symptoms that how long it will take for the treatment to cure you completely as well in any other query related to acne feel free to consult me through Lybrate.

Leucoderma, also known as vitiligo, is a rare skin disease characterized by white spots and patches. The white patch or spot is called as leucoderma and when it occurs without any preceding disease it is called Vitiligo. Leucoderma in literal term means white skin. Vitiligo and Leucoderma are not incurable. It depends upon choice of treatment you take. Through that either it can get cured or can get complicated. Mostly herb based Ayurveda treatment can not harm you and in most of the stages it can cure it if the treatment is taken from an Ayurvedic Vitiligo Specialist. Leucoderma or vitiligo, which produces white patches in the skin, is not a genetic disease. It is an acquired condition, probably of autoimmune etiology. It is also not due to an infectious cause, and it does not spread by contact.

Hair Fall - How Genetics Determine Your Hair Health?

Hair Fall - How Genetics Determine Your Hair Health?

Hair fall or hair loss can be a harrowing experience in a person’s life. Among many reasons, genetic or hereditary predisposition is a fairly common factor. Even if you use medicated shampoos or use trusted and proven hair care products it still may not protect your hair and may not stop hair loss or even baldness.

How genetics determine hair health?
Some of the reasons which contribute to bad hair health due to genetics are briefly discussed below.

  1. Weak Blood Circulation in the Scalp: Many people are genetically predisposed to have low blood circulation within the scalp. As you age, the blood supply to the hair follicles starts reducing. This may be either due to a weak scalp or muscle tightening around the skull, which is cutting of blood flow to the hair follicles. This will result in hair loss and even lead to baldness.
  2. DHT: DHT or Dihydrotestosterone is another reason, which can result in hair fall. It is a variant of testosterone which is created when this hormone interacts with an enzyme in different places of the body. DHT is connected to receptors present in the hair follicles as well. When your hair regrow, the new hair grows smaller than earlier. If this cycle continues, you are left with almost no hair in the long run. DHT is found in the sebum, the blood and the scalp. If you have an elevated level of scalp sebum, it means you have a high DHT level which again may trigger hair loss.

Preventive measures

There are some precautionary measures you can take for your hair fall to stop worsening are mentioned as follows:

  1. Topical medications: You can use some medicated hair tonic, for topical applications. However, the effectiveness of these medications varies greatly from person to person and don’t expect miraculous results in the short run. Consult a doctor who can prescribe you specific ones according to your need.
  2. Oral medications: There are certain medications, which can control the level of testosterone within your body and stop or at least arrest severe hair loss. However, you should visit your doctor and may even need to go through multiple medical check us before an appropriate medication is prescribed to you.
  3. Food supplements: You can take food supplements, which provide amino acids and other vital nutrients to your hair follicles.

Surgical treatments, such as hair transplantation are also available as an option, which can help you cover bald patches on your scalp. However, these are expensive corrective treatments, which can be invasive and thus, you will to reconsider it carefully.

Regular massaging the scalp for a few minutes every day with lukewarm oil will lead to stimulation of blood flow to the scalp. Coconut oil helps in controlling hail fall. Other recommended oils are: Jojoba oil, almond oil, mustard oil, lavender oil. Jojoba oil is especially good because it replaces the sebum in the scalp. It also helps to control dandruff.

I am loosing my hair very badly. So please recommend me something so that I can get rid of my hairfall.
Your hair needs a high protein well-rounded diet. A strand of hair is composed of mostly protein, which means your hair needs protein to grow. Hair and nails are both protein fibers. Hence a therapeutic diet prescribed by a registered dietitian can help a lot in hair growth. Besides diet excessive stress, current/past dandruff and some medication are conclusively known to retard hair growth and promote hair loss. - cut down on the use of hair spray, hair gels, and styling creams that contain harsh chemical ingredients, which can dry out the scalp and cause the formation of flakes. Also harsh treatments such as perms, colours, relaxers etc take a toll on the health of your hair. - avoid changing your shampoo and conditioner constantly. Stick to one good mild cleansing shampoo for six months before changing. - excessive exposure to the sun, pollution, rain water and dust without proper protection makes the hair dry, brittle and limp. Use a live in conditioner during the rains to protect it from the humidity and wash and oil it regularly to maintain a healthy scalp. I may also prescribe medications like biotin or minox. That are proven to help in hairgrowth and repair I being a both a registered dietitian (rd) and doctor have been successfully helping patients with their problems through a holistic approach using customized therapeutic diet and medications. I will also suggest home remedies. Do reply back for private consultation for rx.

With age, your skin loses its firmness and elasticity slowly leaving open pores which look very upsetting especially upfront. It's very important not to use any form of products available in the market for this on your face. Instead what you can do is use an oatmeal scrub which you can prepare at home using some oat flakes n honey. This vil help reduce the pores and moisturise your skin. Do this twice daily and a month later you can top up this method with some medication which vil bring significant changes.Stress enhances acne, so employ relaxation techniques. Yoga helps decrease negative acne forming chemicals. Soaps and scrubs won't help anyway, but a mild salicylic acid face wash can definitely help. Steam increases pores, so wash face with cold water twice daily. Eat plenty of carrots and spinach. Drink water.u hav to couple all this with interventions.
