How will I remove my dark circles around my eyes and how to improve my personality from  thin body to fat body.
Hi dark circles usually have a underlying cause like iron deficiency. So check your iron levels that will help in deciding the course of action. For temporary solutions use cucumber juice or aloevera juice around the eyes to lighten the dark circles. As for weight gain eatfoods that are dense in nutrients and calories help in weight gain. Whole grains, nuts, butter of nuts, potatoes, bananas, beans rich in proteins. Make sure your meals are high on complex carbohydrates and proteins. Milkshakes with fresh fruits will help weight gain. Consider taking protein shakes. A minimum of 500 calories can be increased per day.

Tomatoes are an excellent solution for getting rid of dark circle, as it naturally helps to decrease the dark circles and also makes the skin soft and supple. All you need to do is mix one teaspoon of tomato juice with a teaspoon of lemon juice and apply it under your eyes.

Cancer Symptoms Men Ignore

1. Problems When You Pee
Many men have some problems peeing as they get older, like:
A need to pee more often, especially at night
Dribbling, leaking, or an urgent need to go
Trouble starting to pee, or a weak stream
An enlarged prostate gland usually causes these symptoms, but so can prostate cancer. See your doctor to check on the cause of the problem. He?ll give you an exam to look for an enlarged prostate, and he may talk to you about a blood test (called a PSA test) for prostate cancer.

2. Changes in Your Testicles
"If you notice a lump, heaviness, or any other change in your testicle, never delay having it looked at.
"Unlike prostate cancer, which grows slowly, testicular cancer can take off overnight" Your doctor will look for any problems with a physical exam, blood tests, and an ultrasound of your scrotum.

3. Blood in Your Pee or Stool
These can be among the first signs of cancer of the bladder, kidneys, or colon. It's a good idea to see your doctor for any bleeding that?s not normal, even if you don't have other symptoms,
Although you're more likely to have a problem that's not cancer, like haemorrhoids or a urinary infection, it's important to find and treat the cause.

4) Breast Changes
"Men tend to ignore breast lumps because breast cancer isn't on their radar"
"But 1% of all breast cancers occur in men, although they're usually diagnosed much later" Don?t take any chances. If you find a lump, tell your doctor and have it checked.

Some times you may get redness with hydroquinone. Stop it for one week n again start. Use small amount. Don't ever take that tablet again. Every time you take that spot will become more n more black. It takes long time to go. If you want it to get removed you can go for q switched Nd yag laser. Generally no need for biopsy because your dermat was sure about diagnosis. If he had doubt he would have advised biopsy.

Use tea tree face wash and toner twice daily. Use aha glow face wash once in a day. Use sunscreen with spf 30 daily. Use natural face pack of multani mitti and lemon 2 times a week. You can also use apple cider vinegar for 5 minutes 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.

Acne And Pimples: 6 Most Effective Homeopathic Remedies!

Acne And Pimples: 6 Most Effective Homeopathic Remedies!

Acne and pimples mostly occur due to hormonal changes occurring in the body. They are most prominent among teenagers undergoing hormonal transition. The growth hormones become ultra active and the oil glands present in the skin produce more. The glands present under hair follicles are infected and get inflamed, resulting in pimples. Pimples are a nightmare for teenagers, who are conscious about their look and appearance. Eruptions of pimples of different sizes, blisters and rashes of black or red colours are bound to worry appearance conscious individuals. Acne and pimples do not usually have easy solutions or quick remedies.

When it comes to treatment of acnes and pimples, Homeopathic medicines are considered the most effective and paramount. Homeopathic cure does not intend to quick-fix acne and pimples. The objective being the correction of inner causes, it allows the pimples to heal slowly on their own instead of taking any medicine of high dose. The process might take some time, but it surely is the most effective. The problem gets solved from its roots. Scars from previous eruptions are also permanently healed using homeopathic medicines. Homeopathy is, therefore, the best way to cure acnes and pimples.

Popular Homeopathic Remedies for Acne and Pimples 
Here is a list of the most common solutions for acne and pimples and what they indicate:
1. Sulphur

  • It is a very common cure, especially for chronic cases of acne.
  • The eruptions cause great pain.
  • They are present in the form of abscesses.
  • Patient is vulnerable to cold and pain. Increased rate of perspiration.
  • Patient tends to get agitated and irritated very easily.

2. Silicea

  • In cases where there is pus formation.
  • The best homeopathic medicine for acne.
  • Increased rate of perspiration. The patient cannot bear cold at all.
  • Skin turns pale and tender.

3. Pulsatilla  

  • For cases where the intake of rich junk  food and indigestion are the causes of acne. 
  • Also in cases of girls suffering from menstrual problems.
  • Symptoms include decreased thirst.
  • Patient is usually very sensitive to heat.

4. Nux Vomica

  • For cases where acne formation is because of gastric disruptions.
  • Skin seems to appear red and blotchy
  • Caused because of having too much spicy food
  • Signs of constipation and over sensitiveness to cold

5. Antimonium Crudum

  • Formation of tiny red pimples all over the face
  • Very irritable in nature
  • Arthritic pain in fingers and loss of appetite
  • White, thick coating on tongue

6. Bovista

  • Formed due to cosmetic use, especially during summer
  • Skin tends to itch
  • Cheeks swell up and become pale
  • Makes patient restless.

Homeopathy is certainly the best way to deal with and to get rid of unwanted, ugly acne, which ruin your face. There are more homeopathic cures for other types of acne and pimples for which you can consult any homeopathy physician.
