Lifestyle Habits Which Affect Your Skin!

Lifestyle Habits Which Affect Your Skin!

Blemish free skin, which is supple and radiant is everyone’s dream, however, there are certain lifestyle habits which can take a toll on your skin and affect it adversely.

Here are a few lifestyle habits which affect your skin:

  1. Smoking can speed up the process of aging: Smoking can affect your skin adversely as it strips your skin of essential nutrients and oxidants. This leads to degradation of the basic units of the skin- collagen and elastin. The affected units also lead to uneven skin, appearance of fine lines and sagging. A study has also proven that smoking causes acne as the pores in your skin get blocked.

  2. Stress: Stress has the power to cause major hormonal imbalances inside your body, which can affect your skin. Stress affects the skin’s barrier function which reduces its ability to absorb and retain moisture. Dehydrated skin looks dry and patchy and becomes flaky over time, leading to acne.

  3. Sleep: Sleeping for less than 6 hours at night can make you feel sleepy and tired the next day. Your skin also deals with the lack of rest which is why the radiance is lost and can lead to problems such as under eye bags, dark circles and saggy skin.

  4. Poor nutrition: Poor nutrition which lacks in essential vitamins and minerals can cause serious problems in the skin. Including foods which are rich in vitamin C such as fruits lime, oranges and tomatoes and fatty fishes such as tuna, mackerel and salmons can help you retain radiant skin. Adding colourful fruits and vegetables to your diet will help you detoxify your skin and get acne free and supple skin.
  5. Not applying sunscreen: Your job might require you to stay outdoors for long, which exposes your skin to the harmful UV-A and UV-B rays of the sun and dust particles. In such conditions, using sunscreens with SPF (Sun protection factor) 30 or above is a necessity as otherwise, the rays can penetrate into your skin, weaken the collagen cells and lead to pigmentation and tanning in the long run. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Dermatologist.

Recommend - arnica Q mixed with coconut oil apply on roots special at night and wash Hair I'm the morning.( temporary treatment) First you find out the right cause of hair fall then you go with any treatment. I recommended you use any homeopathic shampoo twice a week its easily available on Homeopathic medical shops , oiling you hair twice a week specially at night . Eat protein rich food , Vit E and Vit A rich food , and for stop hair fall you need a medicine internally , topical solutions never provide a permanent relief , its always temporary. if you want Homeopathic treatment ,you can contact me through Private questions in lybrate.

It is the effect of weed and you stop. Best age to stop smoking is before 40, In fact do not start all Only by using strong will power and avoiding all situations where you feel like smoking, chewing tobacco or drinking or using drugs avoiding friends who smoke and diverting mind by reading or chewing a gum, like NICORETTE and taking a walk when you crave for a smoke can all help. You can chew Nicorette gum which is nicotine replacement. There are medicines available. Which can be prescribed if asked personally Cigarette smoking is a leading preventable cause of mortality. It kills more than 60 lakh people worldwide every year. More than 50% of regular smokers would invariably die from tobacco-related illnesses which includes heart attack, cancer or asthmatic lung diseases. Best age to stop smoking is before 40 31st May is “World No Tobacco Day” Quitting smoking before the age of 40 is associated with larger decline in premature death than stopping it at a later date. Best age therefore to stop smoking is before 40. However, stopping smoking even after the age of 50 is still associated with lower risk of death as compared to those who continue to smoke. Even in smokers aged 80 years or more, quitting smoking appears to reduce some mortality.

Apple is a miracle fruit for the skin.The alpha hydroxy acids or AHA’s present in apples improves skin color and elasticity of the skin.Soak peeled apple slices in milk for 20 minutes and then blend to form a creamy paste.Place in the freezer for 10 minutes, and then mix a tsp of lemon juice, apply all over your face and neck.Rinse off after 15 minutes with cool water and massage an ice cube.The skin looks baby soft, smooth with a rosy white glow.Follow this for a week to get fair skin naturally. or All the natural ingredients (Tretinoin, Hydroquinone and Cortisone) inlcuded in Melamet have only one goal: to improve your skin tone. Tretinoin helps prevent and treat acne and wrinkles by peeling off dead skin cells. Hydroquinone is the skin lightener agent in this equation that improves the overall tone of your skin. Cortisone is an anti-allergy ingredient that reduces inflammation and/or itching.' How to Use: Use the Melamet Cream just before bedtime. Wash it off in the morning, and apply some sunscreen if you intend to go outdoors. Failure to do so will cause significant damage and even result in your skin turning blac

Best Tips To Reduce Hair Fall

Best Tips To Reduce Hair Fall

Twenty best tips to reduce hair fall and hair loss.

  • Do no harm! start by avoiding too many chemicals- dyes, colours, conditioners, spa treatments and styling products.
  • Avoid styling and hair treatments. They make the hair brittle and dry. Avoid using hair straighteners, hair curlers and blow dryers on a regular basis.
  • Pop proteins! our hair shaft is made up of protein so the best thing you can do is to include loads of protein rich food in the diet. These include milk, dairy products, meats, eggs, nuts, pulses and protein shakes.
  • Stay hydrated. Drink loads of water, it not only improves growth but promotes healthy hair.
  • Go green! fresh fruits, veggies and green leafy vegetables give all your trace vitamins and minerals like zinc and magnesium that are important for your hair.
  • Include vitamin c in diet. Vitamin c helps to maintain hair strength and lustre. Good sources of vitamin c include oranges, lemons, amla and other citrus fruits.
  • Iron is required for hair growth and hair lustre. Ask your family physician to prescribe you iron supplements if you have deficiency symptoms.
  • The thumb rule is never to overwash your hair. Washing hair is necessary to remove dirt and grime, however, too much washing can strip the scalp of natural oils.
  • Wash your hair once in three days to avoid dirt and sweat. This also minimises scalp infections.
  • When washing your hair, avoid hot water as it can leave hair follicles open, encouraging breakage and hair fall.
  • Use a shampoo and conditioner that suits your hair.
  • Massaging your hair and scalp with oil is good for moisturisation and nourishment. It helps to keep the scalp healthy and well hydrated. Make sure you wash it off before you step outdoors.
  • Hair is most susceptible to breakage when wet. So don't comb your hair roughly when wet.
  •  Do not rub vigorously with a towel after shower. This only encourages more breakage of hair.
  • Use a wide tooth comb to detangle your hair after a wash. It reduces breakage.
  • Refrain from tying your hair in tight pony tails or tight pigtails. This can lead to traction alopecia which is a type of hair loss.
  • Though difficult to practise, it is important. Avoid stress and stressful conditions. Practise meditation techniques and yogaasana. This keeps your hair loss under control as also promotes overall health and well-being.
  • Quit smoking as smoking causes reduced blood flow to the scalp which can hamper hair growth.
  • Use hair packs containing coconut milk to promote hair growth.
  • Natural homemade hair packs are good, however, another good option is a hair spa which includes deep moisturisation of hair. This prevents breakage and split ends.
  • Lastly, if hairfall is severe under medical guidance, you can have medications such asminoxidil which stimulate hair growth.
  • These simple tips are easy to follow and it is recommended to follow them regularly for easy results.

I have so much pimple marks on my face. What should I do for removing that immediately?
There are various types of acne scars and marks - post inflammatory hyperpigmentation, ice pick, depressed or hypertrophic scars etc. Management varies with the type of scarring. Scarring can be prevented by taking proper medication for acne. Procedures like fractional co2 laser, microneedling or tca cross work effectively for ice pick acne scars. Chemical peels and microdermabrasion can also be done. These are procedures which can be performed by your local dermatologist.

How to maintaining  skin health because my skin is going dull and dull. please suggest some remedy.
Firstly start taking a full nutritious diet . A good diet is a nutritional lifestyle that promotes good health. A good diet must include several food groups because one single group cannot provide everything a human needs for good health.And what ever we are eating that reflects on our body and skin. 1. Homoeopathic medicine for fair skin is Berberis Aquafolium mother tincture.take 5 drops of it mix with water , twice a day. 2. Apply this tincture in diluted form on your face with cotton once a day . 3. wash your face with besan and curd , mix a pinch of turmeric also. 4. Apply Bio valley's skin lightening cream. 5. Apply rose water to your face at night. 6. Apply cucumber juice+ lemon juice+ tomato juice on your back and neck. 7.Apply Multani mitti pack on the affected areas.
