6 Ways to Retain Healthy Skin

Skin problems are on the rise due to stress, pollution, unhealthy eating habits, among a lot of others factors. Acne, pimples, freckles, fine lines and wrinkles are common problems people are compalining about, even the younger ones.

Flawless skin is now becoming a thing of the past.

There are certain habits, which can be followed by you on a regular basis to restore the health of your skin. Some of them are:

  1. Intake of vitamin C in various forms: Vitamin C is used in the collagen production process by amino acids. One of the most convenient ways of maintaining the glow of your skin is to introduce fruits and vegetables which are rich in vitamin C.
  2. Quit smoking: The pursuit of healthy skin necessitates immediate disengagement with smoking. This fatal habit should be avoided at all cost, as it triggers and facilitates the aging process. It also aggravates the production of free radicals in the skin which in turn adversely affects the skin.
  3. Less exposure to the sun: Exposure to ultraviolet rays of the sun may damage the collagen structure of the skin. It also causes tanning and increases your chance of developing skin cancer.
  4. Avoid sweet food: Consumption of sweets may lead to the formation of various substances, which threaten to damage the collagen structure and subsequently aggravates the aging process.
  5. Consume proteins: The level of oestrogen falls drastically in women after menopause, leading to the development of wrinkles. Foods, such as soy, nuts and beans minimise this effect by replenishing the level of oestrogen in the body and therefore must be incorporated in the diet
  6. Exercise regularly: Exercising on a regular basis improves your skin health as it increases blood circulation in the body. Consequently, it helps in delivering various nutrients to the skin, which in turn defers aging. Daily exercises also prevent the onset of various skin disorders.

Ii) sit inside that tub of lukewarm water in a squatting position so that the betadine mixed water can come in contact with the point of bleeding. Iii) maintain this position for at least 30 minutes daily. Follow the aforesaid rules & continue the aforesaid medication for one month. If you do not feel any relief after one month of medication then you should consult me privately via lybrate.

Epilight is one of the best remedies for skin lightening. There is no other medicine which can provide the same results within the same price range.

Hi, Use Bakson's Face wash, Schwabe's Aloe vera cream regularly. Don't let the area get any kind of friction like rubbing (rubbing even the cream or oil), scratching, pinching, etc. Any kind of friction makes the condition worse! Increase the intake of Vitamin A (green veggies, reddish or yellow veggies or fruits like carrot, papaya, water melon, egg yolks, etc.), vitamin C (citrus fruits like oranges, kinus, mausambi, lemon, etc. and amla, green veggies, tomatoes, green peas), vitmain E (nuts sp. walnut, almonds, flaxseeds, sunflower seeds, fish) and protein (pulses, legumes, sprouts, non-veg, eggs, etc.). Medication: Take Natrum Mur. 6x/ thrice daily for 1 month. Revert me back there after.

Hi, I suggest you to go for your hemoglobin and iron level. I think this an be the most important thing causing anemia and thus dark circles. This is the important reason for tiresomeness also. I suggest you to take ample of green vegetables and fruits along with iron supplementation. Use kojic acid based cream before bedtime.
