Dear Lybrate User, *wonder product which you already have in your kitchen and it can help you fight against pimples is baking soda. A mixture of baking soda and lemon juice can be applied on the skin to make it pimple free. Baking soda is an amphoteric compound which means it can work both as an acid and as a base. It helps in neutralizing the skin’s pH, imbalance in which is often a cause behind acne. It also dries the skin removing any extra oil and mixing some baking soda with water works wonderfully in cleansing and exfoliating our skin.

Hi lybrate-user, pimples are due to increased activity of the sebaceous glands. Keep your skin clean by washing it 4 times a day. Use face wash containing glycolic acid or salycilic acid. Eat 5 potions of fruits. Drink 3 litres of water. You would be rid of your acne soon.

Dear lybrateuser, - For skin cuts you should clean the wound with an antiseptic solution & can apply bandaid or a antibiotic cream with bandage - applying any type of oil can lead to contamination of the wound as dust & other impurities settle on the oil coating.

I am suffering from dry skin. My face gets dry often and my feet has torn almost and if I stand for long time then it becomes much painful. What cream to apply for dryness.

MD - Alternate Medicine, BHMS
Homeopath, Surat
For your skin, I will suggest you to apply aloe vera cream over your skin, so that the aloe vera content itself, provide nourishment to skin and prevents it from getting dryness. And by applying it, your skin will remain healthy in these hot summer days too.

I m losing my hair quickly. I have tried many ways but none of them helped. What should I do?

I m losing my hair quickly. I have tried many ways but none of them helped. What should I do?
Jojoba Oil: The debate is whether jojoba is the king of the carrier oils. Many scalp-related problems are caused by a hardened build-up of sebum that clogs the hair follicles and causes some types of scaling. If this hardened build-up is not removed, it can eventually obstruct the hair follicle’s ability to function properly. Jojoba rapidly penetrates down to the scalp and hair shaft, and readily loosens and dissolves this hardened build-up.

I have so much pimples in my face I have tried all but nothing change so now what I do?

BHMS
Homeopath,

Dear lybrate user, pimples/ acne vulgaris is a chronic inflammatory skin disease which develops due to blocking of the hair follicles in skin. These blockages occur due to 4 abnormal processes: 1) excess sebum production due to androgens 2) excessive deposition of the protein keratin leading to comedone formation 3) infection of propionibacterium acnes (p. Acnes) bacteria on the hair follicles 4) local release of pro-inflammatory chemicals in the skin. Neither can you stop the over-production of androgen or keratin protein nor can you stop the release of pro-inflammatory chemicals because all these processes takes place internally in your skin. However you can stop the accumulation of p. Acnes bacteria on your skin by preventing your skin from getting oily. Always keep a handkercheif with you whenever you go outside. You should wipe off the slightest amount of sweat from your face as soon as you perspire on entering your room from outside wash your face with an oil-free, non-moisturizing facewash. Take a low carbohydrate diet. Do some exercise daily. Drink a lots of water to avoid constipation. Avoid pricking the pimples or popping the sebum as it may lead to black pigmentation & permanent scar formation. You can also take homoeopathic calcarea phos 200, 5 drops, thrice daily, in empty stomach also you can apply homoeopathic mother tincture berberis aquifoium q on the dark spots on your skin which are produced after the resolution of the pimples.
