Many people are troubled by the appearance of under eye dark circles. There are various reasons for having peri-orbital dark circles. Some of them is due to sinusitis ,cold or allergies, Nasal congestion can dilate the blood vessels that drain from the area around your eyes, causing them to darken. Other causes are Heredity, aging, dry skin, Sleep deprivation ,Oversleeping, Eczema, Stress, Iron deficiency, Lifestyle (working for long hours in front of a computer, unhealthy diet. ,Fluid retention, Skin pigmentation abnormalities, Excessive exposure to the sun ,Periorbital cellulitis. It is always better to get rid of underlying problem first to treat your dark circles problem, as other tips will just give you temporary relief. Some ways to get rid of dark circles at home are Almond Oil and vitamin E oil ,cucumber, raw potato, rose water, tomato, lemon juice, tea bags, or put cotton dipped in tea water, turmeric, cold compress or cotton dipped in cold water. You can consult me online through Lybrate for medicines. Your feedback matters. Thank-you.

How to remove pores from face .doctor along with that tell me what shall I do if I have acne on my face.
It could be due to clogging of skin pores by dead bacteria and dust. Need not to worry. I would suggest you to wash your face with face wash containing benzoyl peroxide then apply cream containing azelaic acid which is safe and very effective. Eat fresh fruits and vegetables also drink plenty of water. Apply vitamin E before going to bed to fine texture of skin. Exfoliate your skin with non comedogenic exfoliant once a week to remove dead skin. For inflammatory acne you should start with one of the oral antibiotics like Azithromycin or Minocycline. If condition doesn't get better in a month then consult dermatologist for proper diagnosis and treatment. Doctor may prescribe retinoid ointment and antibiotic like clindamycin. Hope your concern has been resolved. Get Well Soon.

Shampoos are not supposed to help you with hairfall as their only function is to clean. Shampoos don't have any nutrients in them. Hair fall can be reduced or brought under control by improving your diet. Try taking balanced and on time meals. Include sprouts, fruits, leafy vegetable and some dry fruits regularly in your diet. Wash with mild shampoo to avoid damage to already weak hair shaft. If hair fall persists after these measures consult a qualified dermatologist.

You must eat good nutrittious food. Usually hair lost is recovered after a few weeks to months. If there's prolonged hairfall see a qualified dermatologist near you.

I am loosing my hairs quickly. No shampoo or oil helped me. What should I do to cure this.
Losing your hair can do serious damage to your self-esteem. But luckily, there are plenty of options out there now to help you fight it. Hair loss can affect both men and women. Hair loss is very common these days because of increased stress, nutritional deficiencies, lack of exercise and increase intake of junk food. Other causes of hair fall could be genetic, hormonal imbalances, under-active thyroid gland, and insufficient blood circulation in the scalp. There are many treatment options for hair loss including medications, home remedies and cosmetic procedures such as hair transplants. There are various over the counter medications available for preventing hair loss, but you need the ones most suitable to your skin type to get effective results. Visit a dermatologist in your area to know which medicines you should take. If you're considering a hair transplant, it's important that you choose a doctor who focuses specifically on the technique by treating at many patients in a year, and who has experience with all different hair types. An experienced doctor can help minimize scarring and create a more natural hairline. Home remedies would include oiling your hair more often, include Amla/Indian gooseberry in your diet to promote new hair growth, apple cider vinegar can be effective to control hair fall and it gives soft and manageable hairs.

Get your facial done once in every 15 days for 3 months and then once in a month. It purpose is to activate facial nerve which tones-up the facial muscles and removes dead skin over the face. So no more darker tone. You will start getting normal skin back again. And for skin tan just apply berberis aqua q over hands for 2 times in a day for 2 weeks. Take care.:)
