My face colour is little bit dull but it is not even tone. Please give me some suggestion to have even tone fair skin. I have some acne on my face too.

General Physician,
My face colour is little bit dull but it is not even tone. Please give me some suggestion to have even tone fair skin...
Use Face Peels: They are a kind of face mask or gel that employ healthy mild acids to dissolve the dead skin cells. Face peels are used to even out your skin complexion and eliminate topmost layer of the skin that has become old and look dull with skin discoloration. (i) In case you are having acne or acne scarring, try a face peel that is made with salicylic acid.

Hair loss, also known as alopecia or baldness, refers to a loss of hair from the head or body. Baldness can refer to general hair loss or male pattern hair loss.

Hair loss severity occurs across a spectrum with extreme examples including alopecia totalis (total loss of hair on the head) and alopecia universalis (total loss of all hair on the head and body). The most common cause of alopecia is *Androgenetic alopecia (male-pattern or female-pattern hair loss) *Androgenetic alopecia is an androgen-dependent hereditary disorder in which dihydrotestosterone plays a major role.

I have problem hair falls, dandruff and premature greying of hairs. I suffering from above mentioned problem.
Hair fall may be attributed to different reasons like using artificial colors, hair styling, chemicals etc. It may be due to some internal weakness also. Please go for herbal neem shampoo. Use shikakai and amla as conditioner (soak amla and shikakai in water overnight and boil a little in morning). Apply it on hairs. Keep for half an hour and then wash. It will condition the hairs.

Pimple holes are there on his face, suggest the best cream for spot and holes removal.

Pimple holes are there on his face, suggest the best cream for spot and holes removal.
They must be post acne scars. Scars are difficult to treat and are best treated with cosmetic/ surgical procedures such as dermarollers and fractional lasers. However, these procedures although associated with considerable improvement don't cause complete cure.

My skin gets dried up fast and wrinkles on my skin apart from face. Please suggest me to overcome it.
Wrinkles appear as we grow older and they are an inevitable part of the natural aging process. As we become older our skin becomes thinner, drier and less elastic and the skin’s ability to protect itself from damage is also reduced as we age. Vitamin C and Vitamin E are really effective in the reduction of wrinkles and fine lines.

Bariatric Surgery and Its Effect on Skin

Bariatric Surgery and Its Effect on Skin

A number of patients who have undergone gastric bypass surgery face hair loss and skin problems after surgery. The symptoms occur due to deficiencies in Vitamins B12 and D, the depletion in iron and zinc levels, as well as the low levels of some essential proteins associated with gastric bypass. These are all essential elements for skin health and the healthy growth of hair and nails.

IN my  clinic, many patients are  visiting with complaints of loss of hair and various dermal symptoms including abnormalities in skin and nails, sudden darkening of complexion (whole body), melasma, sunken cheeks, eyes & depressed temples due to lack of proteins and fats. Such patients fair extremely well with correction of deficiencies and dermal fillers like JUVEDERM VOLUMA & JUVEDERM ULTRA PLUS done to restore the lost volume.

You can also use apple cider vinegar with mother for 5 mins after washing your face and splash it clean with water. Most important is diet- do not eat junk, eat more vegetables and fruits especially with vitamin c.

I am having a lot of hair fall please suggest me some medicines and precautions.

I am having a lot of hair fall  please suggest me some medicines and precautions.
Hi. Let me tell you about hairfall. In layman's language, hairfall can be divided into 2 types - temporary hairfall and permanent (which is called as 'Hairloss' rather). In temporary hairfall, hair grows back again from the same hair root, but in case of permanent hairloss, may be because of formation of DHT (Di- Hydro -Testosterone) around hair root it gets choked up, subsequently affects the blood supply to the hair and thus hair root is lost forever. (There are different pattern and types of hairloss, because of different reasons like Alopecia Areata, Telogen Effluvium, Scarring Alopecia, Traction Alopecia, etc.) Causes of hairloss: Many factors are responsible formation of this DHT or male/ female pattern baldness - hereditary, post-illness/ ailment, post-delivery, post- chemotherapy, nutritional deficiencies, hormonal imbalance, insufficient sleep, sudden loss of weight, stress/ tensions/ excessive anger, use of bore water, any other underlying diseases, etc. Need to rule out any causative factor or underlying medical condition. Management: Take diet rich in protein like non-veg., eggs, pulses, legumes, sprouts, nuts (sp. walnut and almonds), iron-rich food like green vegetables, also take flaxseeds, green tea, soyabean, fruits, salads, etc. Take proper 6-9hrs of sound sleep. Give up the habit of smoking and excessive alcohol intake. Avoid junk food and any kind of beverages (tea, coffee, aerated drinks, cold drinks, etc.) Avoid canned/ tinned food or food that contains preservatives (eat fresh ones). Avoid use of hard water to wash the head rather use boiled water for head wash. Avoid use of harsh hair colour, hair treatment like rebonding, straightening, perming, etc. Avoid vigorous exercises or any supplements provided by the gym! Use Rose wood/ any wooden hair comb to brush your hair. Regular exercising is also one of the important point, but should be done under some good, qualified yoga teacher or instructor for proper guidance; it also releases the stress/ tension in the mind and the body and keeps you FIT and YOUNG!! Medication: Take homoeopathic Rx - Schwabe's Wiesbaden 200 & Alfalfa Tonic twice a day for 1 month and revert. Also, use Schwabe's Arnica shampoo and Hair Growth oil regularly as per the condition of your scalp (minimum 3 times a week). After shampooing, use Bakson's Arnica Hair conditioner as well after every head wash. Apart from this, take Follihair tablets (multivitamin) - 1 tab. daily once for 1 month. (N.B.: With the help of homoeopathic medicines, we can only prevent further progress of the hairloss, means it will get arrests in the present condition in case of progressive baldness. But, in case there are areas of baldness which has gone smooth and shiny, you will have to choose an option of Hair Transplant along with theses medications!). Investigations advised: Get your blood tested for (empty stomach) - CBC, S. Iron, S. Folic acid, S. Ferritin, S. Calcium, S. Vitamin D3, S. Vitamin B12. If there is any family history of Thyroid dysfunction, get Thyroid function test done as well.

DEAR Lybrate USER. You have to follow some basic things so that you get better results in a short period of time. ���. 1) take solid diet two times in a day and liquid diet two times in a day ���2) drink only 100-150 ml of lukewarm water during meals ���. 3) don���t drink water before meal for one hour and one hour after meal���4) avoid oily, spicy, junk, fermented and stale foods���. 5) avoid late night sleeping habits ���6) avoid coffee and tea���. A) take 30ml of triphala juice and 10 ml of honey early in the morning on empty stomach and at night before sleep. B) take 2-2 tablets of lakshyadi guggul and vasantkusumakar rasa early in the morning on empty stomach with triphala juice���. C) take 10 gm of black cumin seeds along with 10 gm of jiggery after meals���. D) apply equal quantity mixture of fresh lemon juice and aloe vera juice on the roots of hairs���. Leave it for 30-45 minutes���. After that wash hairs with ROOTZ SHAMPOO (rajah ayurveda)������ do all things for 30 days. These things are much more effective. Consult to me for further suggestion. THANKS. REASON behind hair loss is increased pitta dosha (heat) in a rakta (blood) due to this roots of the hair get burned and hair fall started. To stop hair fall we have to remove increased pitta dosha from rakta by the root of STOOL, URINE AND SWEAT. And after that we have to increased strength of hairs by three ways. MEDICINE, DIET AND EXERCISE. THANKS.

Dark circles are a common problem but the cause for its occurrence has to be determined. Most of the times, it's genetic that is it runs in the family. But inadequate sleep, nutritional deficiency or working on laptop for long hours can also cause this. Please get your hemoglobin checked. Creams can be tried, which are specially made for treating pigmentation on this area. Chemical peels are also another option. Please use a sunscreen. You can call me or contact me through online consult option for detailed prescription and all other precaution to be taken.
