Hi lybrate-user as you are 23 years old & having vitiligo on lips, vitiligo is a genetic disorder trigger by indigestion and stressful conditions. There was always confusion in patients mind regarding choosing right treatment approach for vitiligo. Allopathy can give quick results but is not very safe for long term uses if steroids are used. Homeopathic is safe but very slow and in most of cases it can not stop the spread of disease i.

How to Keep your Skin Young and Healthy?

Dermatologist, Delhi
How to Keep your Skin Young and Healthy?

Remember, the skin is the body's biggest organ. Strong and youthful skin means that perfect success. From eating perfect to your action plan, from your healthy skin regimen to your resting style, everything affects your skin quality.

Keeping up strong and more young looking skin can be master with the right approach.

Here are few exhibited ways to deal with keep your skin youthful, energetic and awesome.

Think about Your Back

Rest is fundamental for healthy skin. On the off chance that you are short on rest despite for a single day, it can incite packs under the eyes. Thus, essentially imagine how distinctive eager nights affect your skin appearance.

Those who sleep less had extended signs of skin developing and slower recovery from solution of natural stressors, for instance, intrusion of the skin block or UV radiation.

Consistent poor rest quality is connected with extended signs of characteristic developing, decreased skin check limit and lower satisfaction with appearance. Incredible sleepers have a better impression of their appearance and physical charm than those who sleep less i.e. poor sleepers.

While measure of rest is basic for skin richness, even the way you rest can huge influence on your skin appearance. Contemplating your stomach with your face secured into your cushion can realize dark circles and puffiness around your eyes. This resting position can make the veins wind up doubtlessly contracted and result in poor blood diffusion.

To keep up your skin's general well being, set yourself up to consider your back and keep your head raised well over your body by using two pads. Furthermore, endeavour to rest for no less than seven hours every day.

Add Coconut Oil to Your Beauty Routine

Notwithstanding, whether it is strong skin or hair that you require, extra virgin coconut oil is something you should place assets into.

Notwithstanding what kind of skin you have, extra virgin coconut oil goes about as a staggering cream. It is, really, to a great degree strong for more prepared people who are more disposed to skin dryness. This oil is one of the primary wellsprings of medium-chain unsaturated fats, which is the thing that makes it so incredibly helpful for skin.

This oil is also rich in phytonutrients and polyphenols that go about as cell fortifications and have other tissue-consistent and tissue-guarded properties.

Topical virgin coconut oil lessened water disaster in the skin of people with atopic dermatitis, a combustible skin condition in which the skin's normal moistness locking impediment does not work properly.

Coconut oil is in like manner uncommonly convincing against hair hurt. This is a direct result of its high inclination for hair proteins and low sub-nuclear weight, which makes it plausible for the oil to penetrate inside the hair shafts.

Among mineral, sunflower and coconut oils, coconut oil can strikingly decrease the protein disaster in both undamaged and hurt hair when used as a pre-wash and post-wash preparing thing.

Shave Care

Most men and women lean toward shaving as one of the best systems to discard undesirable hair and to acknowledge smooth skin.

Nevertheless, if shaving is not, done genuinely and with extra careful steps, it can scrape the skin, especially if the skin is thin, dry and fragile.

Shaving addresses a significantly complex course of action of mechanical and compound co-operations occurring at the skin surface. To ensure marvellous closeness and perfect comfort, compelling organization of the skin is principal.

It is endorsed to shave after a hot shower or shower (or crushing a warm wet texture on your skin) as it appeases the hair. Never grievously shave when the skin is dry. Moreover, use an impeccable, sharp razor, and shave toward the hair advancement. In the wake of shaving, flush the skin well with warm water to vacant cleanser and dead cells.

If the skin winds up clearly irritated ensuing to shaving, refrain from using alcohol based cream paying little heed to the likelihood that it feels refreshingly cool. Such things can compound the aggravation by drying out the skin extensively more.

Facial Yoga

Facial yoga has ended up being continuously notable, as it gives indistinct favourable circumstances, from a corrective touch up surgery without the risks and cost.

Often facial yoga can incite

Less Wrinkles

Less Eye Puffiness

A firmer Jaw Line

No redistribution of Skin


This occurs in light of the fact that facial yoga stances increase formation of collagen, which is the skin's wellspring of youth that reductions with developing and sun harm. It even upgrades muscle tone and makes the skin look suppler.

Facial yoga is reasonable for skin recovery. In any case, affirm from enormous, randomized controlled trials will be required before conclusions can be, drawn.

To lessen Two fold Jaws, endeavor this Facial Yoga Act

Sit calmly, keeping your head straight.

Frown your lips and move them progressively to the other side, amplifying your cheek.

Turn your go to the other side and lift it upwards at a 45-degree point.

Rehash before doing it twice to the right side.


To empty Smile Lines, endeavor this Facial Yoga Pose

Put both palms on your sanctuaries.

Push up and back with your hands to lift your face.

Open your mouth gently and make an "O" shape.

At that point, drop your jaw.

Hold for 5 seconds and repeat two more conditions.

Facial yoga fundamentally focuses on the muscles in your mind and neck.

On the remote possibility that done viably, it can help keep your face hunting more young down additional.

Keep up a key separation from Excessive Scrubbing

Fragile shedding is an exceptional way to deal with discard excess dead skin cells and bring back your skin's splendid shimmer. Nevertheless, over-shedding can achieve aggravation and disturbance.

A substantial number of us scrub too enthusiastically while using a scrubber. The unfaltering crushing and scratched spot on the skin can strip away the ordinary oils, inciting exacerbation and dryness. It can notwithstanding achieve post-provocative hyper-pigmentation, inciting clouding of defects.

The line between sound peeling and over-shedding is truly thin and foggy. Over-peeling can incite:

Loss of moistness in the skin,

Sketchy and peeling scopes of dryness,

Messy and red skin,

Expanded affectability to your standard things,

A devouring sensation when anything is associated with the skin,

Skin that feels, hot to touch and aggravating shivering.

General Physician, Faridabad
Add a mixture of turmeric powder and a couple of teaspoons of mustard oil and apply it to the areas where you see white patches on your body. It will help in boosting your immune system. If there are a lot of areas in your body where you see white patches, then you need to increase the quantity of oil and turmeric powder accordingly. Apply this mixture to your skin twice daily. You need to use this continuously for a year to see visible and effective results.  Neem Extracts Neem is used to treat a lot of skin problems and it is said that it is a very good remedy for treating autoimmune disorders. All you need to do is to make a good powder of the dried leaves of the neem tree along with its dried flowers and fruits. You need to take one teaspoon of this powder mixture with a glass of water every day. It helps to fight immunity disorders and thereby help in reducing white patches on your skin. You can also make a fresh paste of the neem leaves with a little bit of water and apply it to he affected area. You need to rinse it off after ten to fifteen minutes. This remedy will greatly help in reducing white spots if used on a regular basis. Honey The anti fugal property in honey will take care of the fungus that causes the white patches on your skin.

Sir. My grand pa has small crack like structure in foot till the knee reddish sine tone and the mussel is hard. There is burning sensitisation around the rash and he has sugar and a heart patient. Kindly prescribe or say the suggestion.

Hi, I would advise you to take your grandpa to a dermatologist. It is difficult to advise you online as the doctor should see skin problems first before diagnosing. The crack in your grandpa's foot can be anything - from a simple rash/abrasion to more deeper infection. As he is also a diabetic patient, I do not want that wound/rash to worsen, so please see a good dermatologist/skin specialist. In diabetes patients, simple wounds can turn nasty soon, and also healing of wounds is delayed especially if diabetes is not under control.

It is not important that the laser treatment is costly or not but important is who is performing laser or in which institution you are going for laser.So laser technique cost vary from doctor to doctor and institution to institution.But befor going for laser,myselb being a homoeopathic will suggest you to follow below given homoeopathic cream and natural methods for 3-4 months.surely it will help to erase the scratches on your face. Homoeopathic cream ANTIMARKS CREAM ( BIOVALLEY) Apply twice daily in circular fashion Papaya is known for its enzyme called Papain which is known for its ability of remove dead skin cells. It can also exfoliate skin removing dry and discolored skin layers. Papaya has low sodium quality which means that it can retain the moisture of your skin and keep it hydrated. This is very important for those that are still healing the scratches, so the skin won't look dull in the long run. Mashing papaya and applying it directly on your skin is the fastest way to use it. However, if you want to enjoy it more while getting rid of your scars, you can make a homemade papaya scrub by following these instructions. 1. What you need 1. 1 cup of Fresh Papaya 2. 5 tbsp. of Brown Sugar 3. 5 tbsp. of Fresh Milk 2. Procedure 1. Combine the brown sugar and fresh milk and mix them until the sugar is melted. Set it aside. 2. Mash the papaya and pour it in the milk mixture. Keep stirring until they are completely combined. 3. Use this as a body scrub after you wash your body with a mild soap. Do this regularly until your scars fade to your satisfaction.

Hi Dr. What is glutathione injection therapy replied by a doctor for question how to get fair color.

Homeopath, Faridabad
Hello, you should know the side effects of skin whitening injections Of course, one of the primary concerns with this type of skin whitening treatment is the negative side effects associated with the whitening option. One negative side effect that many are concerned with is the appearance of the whitening. Other than the skin whitening, some reportedly claim hair loss, white spots on their nails, numbness and tingling of extremities, anxiety, depression, and the shakes. Some people unknowingly suffer from an allergy to glutathione. Unfortunately they do not find this out until after they have been injected with this ingredient. Some have also reported systemic infections, as well as worsening asthma-related symptoms. The overuse of glutathione can lead to kidney failure, and, as mentioned before, the ingredient counteracts chemotherapy drugs; so anyone with cancer receiving chemotherapy should not use these injections. Follow the CTM (cleansing, toning and moisturizing) routine daily.

4 Ways In Which Sugar Affects Your Skin

MD - Dermatology, MBBS
Dermatologist, Delhi
4 Ways In Which Sugar Affects Your Skin

You often consume a much higher amount of sugar than you should actually, as it is widely present in a very high number of foods and beverages. Research suggests that this excessive sugar consumption may ultimately be very harmful for your health - and that it may badly harm your skin. Experts believe that too much intake of sugar can make your skin look wrinkled or dull, and also lead to a host of other skin-related disorders. Here are the ways in which excessive sugar consumption affects your skin:

  1. Causes inflammation: Inflammation, caused by excess sugar intake, can be really damaging for the body - especially because it negatively impacts your immune system, and may lead to frequent breakouts on the skins and increased chances of pimples or warts.
  2. Increases wrinkling: Sugar's inflammatory properties not only lead to breakouts on the skin, but also cause wrinkles. Collagen, which is essential for healthy, supple skin, is broken down by sugar, which makes the skin look dehydrated and dull, also increasing the chances of premature wrinkling.
  3. Causes imbalances in blood sugar level: Excessive sugar consumption causes irregularities in blood sugar levels by initially increasing sugar levels, which then reduces when insulin in released into your cells. It often ends up making you hungry, moody or shaky and increases stress levels leading to dull looking skin.
  4. Leads to occurrence of acne: Increased intake of sugar results in stimulation of hormone levels which raises sebum production and in turn affects growth of skin cells. This may be reason of acne.

Tips for glowing,clear and gorgeous skin

Homeopath, Sindhudurg
Tips for glowing,clear and gorgeous skin
Wear a broad-spectrum sunscreen that protects against both UVA and UVB rays with an SPF of 30 or higher, even on cloudy days.
Reapply your sunscreen every two to three hours you’re outdoors.
Don't smoke -- for the sake of your overall health as well as your appearance..
I can confidently say that homeopathic remedies for clear and glowing skin are totally free from any side effects and are extremely effective in treating this problem. The medicines used are all natural and, thus, free from any harmful components.
As the condition has arisen due to a disturbance in the internal balance of the body and not due to any external factor, the medicine too must work from inside to clear the skin. This result is gained through homeopathic remedies which raise the inner vitality of the person and throw out any noxious agent in the body which may be the cause behind dull and discoloured skin. The result—fair, clear and glowing skin is regained.consult for homoepathic treatment-Dr rushali angchekar

Dear , I think you have developed an anal fissure which is due to passage of hard faeces due to constipation or severe forceful diarrhoea. Fissure in itself increases constipation. Constipation is not a disease but lifestyle problem. Simply treat constipation by laxative, high fiber and high residue diet and apllication of zincal ointment in side anus especially before going toilet.
