My daughter 18 years old. Lip sides are getting getting black from 4 years. Suggest me.
Being a homoeopath, I will suggest you a natural way to glow your lips along with a lip balm. Lemon, sugar lip scrub: in a small bowl, mix in 1 teaspoon of freshly squeezed lemon juice and coconut oil. Add in and stir thoroughly 2 teaspoons of granulated sugar, a bit at a time to make thick paste of uniform consistency. If needed, you can add in more sugar. After mixing it well, you can transfer the scrub into a suitable storage container. It can be safely kept in fridge for about one week. Apply a little bit of the scrub to your lips, and scrub it in circular motion. To effectively exfoliate your lips, use a small toothbrush. Rinse your lips with warm water, and apply a lip balm (bakson) on your choice.

Hi, hair loss is a very common condition and affects most people at some time in their lives. First prevention of hair loss includes good hair hygiene, regular shampooing, and good nutrition. Medical health screening for hair loss may include blood tests such as total blood count test, iron level, vitamin b, and thyroid function tests (tft. Some natural effective oils like oil of rosemary, cedar wood, thyme, and lavender help a lot to promote the growth of hair. These types of oils may be irritating and toxic in nature for the skin, but you can prefer to use them along with carrier oil. You can mix minimum six drops of this natural essential oil in a tablespoon of grapes seed oil or jojoba.

Suntan can make you appear darker than your normal skin color. Certain creams and ointments can also sensitize your skin to sunlight and thus darkening starts. Sometimes some drugs taken orally may also predispose to skin darkening. There are other skin conditions also which could result in skin darkening. If you are not on any medications and ointments, try using sunscreen spf 25 atleast for 3 months. If the darkening does not improve and continues to increase then please consult dermatologist. You keep a watch on your weight, if there is recent weight gain, you should try to reduce to ideal body weight. Certain hormonal imbalances also cause skin darkening.

Hey lybrate-user, yes we can manage scalp psoriasis in a better way. You must have tried some steroidal lotions and some shampoos but disease will come back. We are treating psoriasis using ayurvedic medicines. We can provide you a oil to be applied at night. You can apply same oil on scalp on sunday or holiday and sit in sun for 15 minutes.

Dear lybrate user,g You may take the white of a medium-sized egg and pour it into a bowl then add one tsp of honey. Mix it well then apply to the affected spots. This is one of the most efficient local treatments to help you get through this delicate skin problem. Leave the mixture on for at least 30 minutes then rinse it off with tepid water.

6 Main Causes of Acne

MD - Dermatology, MBBS

Acne is a disorder which is characterized by small red bumps on the skin or occluded pores in the skin such as blackheads. Acne is a teenager's biggest worry. However, it can occur at any age.

Some causes that make your skin prone to acne are:

Hormones: Changes in hormonal balance can cause acne, especially in the beginning of puberty. In some cases, women are affected by acne when the menstrual cycle stops. The acne caused by hormonal changes may also be genetic in nature.
Diet: Following a proper diet is a key factor in keeping your skin healthy. Food usually doesn't cause acne directly but can cause other problems such as greasy skin that are linked with acne. However, foods high in iodides such as seaweeds consumed over time can cause acne.
Stress: The severity of acne can be correlated to the levels of stress a person is facing. While scientists are yet to figure the exact relationship between stress and acne; it is known that the cells that produce sebum or oil also act as stress receptors. Studies suggest that when a person is under stress, these cells produce excessive sebum that clogs pores on the skin leading to pimples.
Misc factors: Bacteria, excess oil, blocked pores, and dead skin cells are the primary reasons behind acne.
Medication: Any medicine that contains lithium, androgen or corticosteroids can worsen this skin condition. Acne is one of the side effects to a few types of medication such as corticosteroids and anti convulsants. However, this is not seen very often. On the other hand, drugs that contain hormones such as androgenic steroids almost always cause an acne breakout. Treatment for acne depends on the severity of the condition and its persistence. Mild cases can be easily treated with over the counter medication, but if your acne is severe and not affected by these medications, it best to consult a dermatologist.

Hi. Not only your hair care, but what you eat that also makes much difference and changes the texture, shine and growth of your hair! So, take diet rich in protein like non-veg, eggs (it's loaded with essential nutrients such as proteins, vitamin b12, iron, zinc and omega 6 fatty acids in large amounts and biotin), different pulses & legumes, sprouts, nuts (sp. Walnuts and almonds); iron-rich food like green vegetables, dates, carrots, prunes, green peas; also oats, shrimp, take flaxseeds, sunflower seeds, sesame seeds, green tea, soyabean, fruits, salads, etc. Take low-fat dairy products (they also contain whey and casein, two high-quality protein sources) 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! cover your head with scarf or cap while stepping outside. Use rose wood/ any wooden hair comb to brush your hair. Regularly massage head and hair with coconut oil, almond oil (depending upon your scalp type) 1 to 3 times a week. 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 medicines - Schwabe's Wiesbaden 200 & Alfalfa tonic twice a day for 1 month and revert. 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, you can take one tablet of multivitamin Folli Hair once daily for 1 month.

Psoriasis needs to be treated and kept under control as it has a tendency to worsen in winters and improve in summers. It has a tendency for spontaneous cure over a period of time. Depending on the type of psoriasis, there are various treatment modalities available like topical applications, phototherapy, methotrexate etc. But they need to be taken under expert supervision.

Hello,White patches on your skin are a common type of depigmented skin lesion associated with an infection, allergy, or autoimmune disorder. One common cause of white spots, or hypopigmentation, is a fungal infection of the skin known as tinea versicolor (associated with other symptoms, such as itching or dryness on or around the white patches). This fungal infection is not contagious and can be treated easily with over-the-counter medications. Please tell me other symptoms like about sensation on the area, since how long do you have this patch, any family history of white patch, etc. In the mean time you can take cal phos 6x, 4 tabs twice daily. Do send me a clear photo of the affected area.
