Hello, Do follow CTMP, i.e., cleansing, toning, moisturising and protection (apply liberally sunscreen with SPF-30 – a thick layer of Bakson's Suncare cream may be, 20-30 minutes before going out daily and repeat it's application after every 3-4hrs.) after washing your face daily; use the products as per your skin type. This will change the skin texture and skin tone. In case you do have tanning, apply honey with a dash of lime on your face. Eat right and healthy that too on time, relieve your stress/ tensions, sleep well, stop smoking, as this restricts blood flow to your face and leaves you with a greyish complexion. lead a healthy lifestyle! Apart from this, avoid anger, anxiety, fear which increases stress hormone in the body and subsequently makes your complexion darker! (Hormonal imbalances also plays a major role). If the dull and dark skin tone is due to any underlying ailment or diseases, need to look into the matter. Diet: -Increase your Vitamin C intake (lemon,orange,gooseberry,etc.Fruits/juices, strawberries, sweet peppers, tomatoes, cantaloupe, and green peas). - Eat more Vitamin A (nonfat milk, oysters, and egg yolks, carrots, watermelon, papaya, tomatoes, or other dark colored produce) . If you feel your skin is weak or not tight enough, that usually suggests a lack of Vitamin A. Medicine: You can also use homoeopathic cream - Medicynth's Whitch Hazel daily at night. Home remedies: Apply fresh-squeezed lemon juice to your entire face and neck. Leave it on for 10 minutes and then wash it off with lukewarm water. After this, rub cucumber slices on your skin to soften and moisturize it. Do this daily or every other day. Another option is squeeze the juice of one-half lemon and mix one to two tablespoons of raw honey in it. Apply it on your face, leave it on for 15 to 20 minutes and then rinse it off. To exfoliate your skin, mix two teaspoons each of lemon juice and sugar. Apply the mixture on your face, neck and hands. Scrub in a circular motion and leave it on for 10 minutes. Then rinse it off with lukewarm water. Follow this remedy once a week to enjoy glowing skin.

This bunch of muscle is called LIPOMA and this is not actually a bunch of muscle but harmless nodules that can develop under the skin. They are basically composed of fatty tissues and are very common. They are soft and painless, and are movable. People usually get this type of skin nodules on the legs, trunk, arms, neck, and the shoulder. However, lipomas can develop in other parts of the body as well. Lipomas are usually less than 5 cm in diameter and they do not produce any other symptom. However, if they compress the adjoining nerves, one can feel pain.Although if you have painless node and it i not increaing in size as well as numbers on your body then nothing to worry about but if you feel bothered then myself being ahomoeopth will ssurely prescribe you some very effective homoeopathic medicine to get rid of it completely.Befor this answer my following quetions othat I could prescribe you a most appropriate medicine 1.Since when do you start feeling this node 2.Is it increasing in size 3.Only one node or some where else on the body also.

I want to raise a scientific query that why people get attracted to fair skin tone and clean and clear skin. Why facial symmetry is important in attraction Why breast size and waist to hip ratio plays a important role in attraction I am 33 years old and I can't get married because god didn't gifted me with these features. I even don't have boyfriend as all of the boys chase beautiful and hot chicks. I never get attention and I know that there are many other women who are misfortunate like me and not blessed with beauty If we girls are not beautiful then we do not get good jobs, husband So is this life worth living. I want to ask this to the creator Even science and technology has developed but it is not affordable for normal human being. God didn't gave me with such features so I am filled with lot of inferiority complex I know my desires will never be fulfilled.

Hello, it is a sad truth. Beauty is given preference everywhere at work, in school, outside. You are a smart female and you should know it is not for the lifetime. Mukesh ambani is not handsome but there will be thousands of girls ready to marry him because of his success. Any person better at anything gets all the attention from those who are not at par with him, this is a selfish human nature. I am sure you are a deserving girl and if someone does not find your worth and marry you, it is their loss. You should concentrate on living your life, beauty is temporary and you know that very well. Make your career and be positive. Life is much much much beyond beauty and human behaviour, try to find the depths of this god gift that you have, you have a body that functions properly, and you can do whatever you want. Feeling inferior is just a state of mind, no one is better than you, for whatever you are whoever you are, find yourself in your own eyes, not from the eyes of others.

Black spots are mainly due to udavarta (improper functions of all vaat). Its mainy due to 1) dharniya vega (urges, should b controled, but you arent) like chinta-stress, bhaya-fear, shoka-, krodha-short temper, maan- ego, lobha-greedy etc mental condition you should control your self 2) adharniya vega (urges that shouldnt be controlled, but you are controling) like sleep, urine, stool, hunger, thirst, yawn, sneeze, vomit etc. Main treatment is to stop causative factor among this. Also there are some ayurveda medicine, lepa-cream, face treatment, or panchkarma (detoxification) will definately help you kumkumadi lepa (nagarjuna) is also a good cream.

I have a dark circle from 1 month what should I do ?
Do you also have puffy eyes or bags under your eyes? what are your sleeping patterns? there are many causes of dark circles. I need more information from you which will help you choose a better treatment plan. Too much caffeine/ tobacco and too little sleep, anemia, dehydration are common causes. If you dont have any of these causes then dark circle peels may be prescribed for dark circle which contain contains arginine, lactic acid, allantoin and aloe vera. Arginine is an amino acid derived from brown sugar which boosts collagen, increases elasticity and moisturises the skin. Lactic acid exfoliates and lightens the skin. Allantoin and aloe vera helps to soothe and regenerate the skin. This is used in conjunction with vitamin c and matrixyl that provides firmness and resistance to the skin around the eye. Do reply back for medication prescriptions. Being also a general physician and registered dietitian, I prescribe both evidence based herbal as well as allopathic medicines complementing with dietary guidelines and home remedies carefully personalized for each individual patient.

It is likely to be piles or an anal fissure. Anal fissure is painful and improves with general measures but may require surgery. Piles may or may not require surgery depending on its stage. The general measures I would suggest are 1. Take lot of vegetables & fruits in your diet 2. Avoid chillies & spices 3. Take lot of fluids 4. Avoid constipation 5 periodically do anal exercises (alternately contracting & relaxing the buttocks, anal area & upper thighs) 6. Take sitz bath 3-4 times a day. This means sitting in a tub of warm water & doing anal exercises 7. Atleast once get it examined by a general surgeon.

I want fair skin what should I do?
White glowing skin is a dream of all females and males which is a largest organ in our body that must be treated with a lot of care. The main causes of dark skin are - ? Exposing to sunlight for a long period of time, ? Lack of proper nutritional diet, ? Dehydration, ? Hormonal imbalance ? Improper production of melanin content and ? Pollution.. All we need is to protect our skin from further damage by just following some simple and natural solutions. ? Take a fresh healthy potato and peel it off. ? Grind and squeeze the juice from it. ? Apply the juice on your face and neck and leave it all over the night. ? Rinse with cold water in the morning. ? Repeated application of the potato tonic will rejuvenates the skin and improves the glowing complexion. ? Make a smooth paste with cucumber and raw milk. ? Apply the paste to your face and neck, let it dry. ? Rinse with lukewarm water for getting soft and fair skin naturally at home. NOTE: Drink lots of water and fruit juices. Stay stress free. Do not expose to sunlight for a long time. Use good sunscreen lotions while going out. Do not forget umbrella or hat while going outside. Have a good sleep. Make sure of removing make up before bed? For treatment and ointment ask privately
