Apply a salicylic acid based acne treatment product to the area. Only do this if your problem is defined by pimples around penis, pimples at base of penis, or pimples on shaft of penis. Penis head pimples or pimples on top of penis are a little more difficult to treat, since you shouldn’t apply chemical-based acne products to this area. If this is the case for you, skip this step and just focus on keeping the area clean and free of irritation.

1. Use mild shampoo to wash hair (you can make your own shampoo using reetha and shikakai at home) 2. Stop using conditioners. Use natural conditioners like egg, yougurt and lemon. 3. Massage your scalp with a mix of oils like olive, coconut, sesame, castor oil at night. 4. Apply raw amla juice on hair thrice a week. 5. Rub your scalp with the juice of white onion. 6. Use a paste of bhringraj on hair. 7. You can use some good hair packs like - fenugreek and yogurt, egg and green tea. 8. You can rinse your hair with organic apple cider vinegar after washing your hair to maintain ph balance of your hair. 9. Hair health depends on the amount of protein in your diet. Foods like chicken, eggs, fish, nuts, dry fruits gives you the required nutrients to keep your skin and hair healthy. So consume plenty of them. Eat things rich in vitamin c like amla and oranges. 10. Drink lots of water to flush out toxins from the body.

Is straightening of hairs with professional straightener can cause any damage to our hairs?

DHMS (Diploma in Homeopathic Medicine and Surgery)
Homeopath, Ludhiana
Is straightening of hairs with professional straightener can cause any damage to our hairs?
Generally, using any external and unnatural agent on the body may lead to possible side effects. Hair straightening is no exception. The different methods of hair straightening include direct heat and harsh chemicals which may prove dangerous at times. You cannot be sure of the product being used by your stylist.--------------------while applying chemicals for the first time, you may be unsure if you are allergic to such compositions. It is often seen that stepping out in the sun with straightened hair may cause damage to hair health mainly because of the harmful uv rays. The chemicals might react adversely when they are exposed to direct sunlight. Therefore, it is extremely important to check the products that are used in the procedure or your stylist should perform an allergic test before using chemical on your hairs-----------------------. 1. One of the most common side effects of hair straightening is excessive dryness. Use of hair dryer makes the situation even worse. Hair loses its natural moisture to a great extent; it begins to look dull and frizzy every time you step out.-------------------------- 2. Allergic reactions mainly occur due to chemical reactions associated with hair straightening. In this case, the side effect may appear immediately after the treatment or few days after. Some of the allergies due to hair straightening include itchiness on skin and scalp, redness of scalp, rashes, itching of the eye and red eye. You should consult a doctor immediately if any side effect persists for more than a day.---------------------------- 3. Another side effect of straightening is boredom in case of permanent straightening as once you straighten your hair permanently, it is very difficult to change the hairstyle again. In case of temporary straightening too, wearing a different style becomes impossible at times.------------- 4. Another clinical side effect of hair straightening is severe hair fall. Many people, who have straightened their hairs, have experienced the same. Use of poor quality chemicals and improper technique of using the straightening iron breaks the hair from the roots. In long term, the hair follicles become weak and hair fall continues-------------------------- avoiding the side effects of hair straightening is easy and possible. For this, you need to visit a good and trustable hair stylist. Make sure the stylist you are engaging is a hair straightening expert and he uses good brand of styling products which are tested by dermatologists. Do not make a fuss while undergoing the treatment, and take good care of your hair to avoid the side effects.------------------------------- so in nutshell, you will have to go for straightening from a professional hair stylist and secondlly handle hairs with care after hair straightening------------------------

Low level of Testosterone cause very slow growth of beard and moustaches. For fast growth of beard apply these very useful methods: • Do SINHASANA & SARVANGASANA yogasana daily. You can ask me for the details & steps of these asanas. • Take 1/2 teaspoon ashwagandha powder and 1/2 teaspoon of amla powder mix it and take it with water once in a day. • Do running and jogging daily as it increase the hormones levels. • Do neck massage with oil daily.

Start using herbal exfoliants and scrubs at home. First of all after washing face with cold water apply lemon juice with a bit of salt on face and slowly scrub. Keep pouring lemon juice in face in between. When done for about 10 minutes wash the face. After minimum 6 hrs apply papapaya or tomato pulp and scrub for 10 minutes. Wash face. Stick either to papaya or tomato pulp. After a week or 10 days.

Use a broad spectrum sunscreen both indoors as well as before going out. It shud b both uva and uvb protective. Protect your eyes with a sunshade. Avoid scrubbing your face. Do not steam or sauna. If you swim, use a sunscreen prior to it and after. Avoid face cosmetics for the time being. You can press powder onto your sunscreen if at all you want to use a cosmetic. Drink two litres of water everyday. Pick up carrots, papaya, pumpkin, black grapes to have everyday. These contain important antioxidants and phytonutrients which vil soften your skin.

Have lots of pores on my skin how to reduce them it made me looks uglyany solution for this.
Hello, Open pores can be the result of lack of proper cleansing resulting in the deposit of oil, dirt or even dead skin in your pores. It is extremely important that you follow the ritual of a face clean at least once a week which includes a massage with a cream, exfoliation for the removal of dead skin cells and a face pack to close the pores opened while the process of exfoliation. This basic routine makes sure that your skin is always prepped up, cleansed and clear of impurities. - Lemons are one of the most widely used herbal remedy to shrink the open pores as they naturally tighten the skin and brighten it too. -Fruits like Papaya are best known for their exfoliation properties. Using a papaya for cleaning the face not only scrubs away all the impurities but also helps in removing black heads and other impurities of the skin. -Egg whites work as natural dryers of the skin and thus they greatly help in shrinking the pores and helping with the problem of open pores. -Another way of dealing with the problem of open pores is yoghurt. -Fuller’s earth is an excellent medium to control excessive oil and cleansing the skin gently and deeply. -Natural Astringent: there are several other natural astringents which can be used on the skin for the treatment of open pores like peach, pineapple, orange, strawberries and other citrus fruits. Apart from these, you can also use rose water and aloe vera gel for open pores.

Getting dandruff frequently after having head bath also. Tried various shampoos also but also use. Need some suggestions regarding this problem.

BHMS

Hi, seborrheic dermatitis is also called dandruff, seborrheic eczema and seborrheic psoriasis. It isn't contagious, and it's not a sign of poor personal hygiene. Few self-care tips can help you control and manage seborrheic dermatitis (dandruff): soften and remove scales from your hair. Apply mineral oil or olive oil to your scalp. Leave it in for an hour or so. Then comb or brush your hair and wash it. Wash your skin regularly. Rinse the soap completely off your body and scalp. Avoid harsh soaps and use a moisturizer. Avoid products that contain alcohol. These can cause the disease to flare up. Wear smooth-textured cotton clothing. This helps keep air circulating around your skin and reduces irritation. If you have a beard or mustache, consider shaving it off. Seborrheic dermatitis can be worse under mustaches and beards. If this is the case for you, shaving might ease your symptoms. Avoid scratching. Scratching can increase irritation and your risk of infection. Gently clean your eyelids. If your eyelids show signs of redness or scaling, wash them each night with baby shampoo and wipe away scales with a cotton swab. Warm or hot compresses also may help. Use lukewarm water for head wash. Medication: take homoeopathic medicines - schwabe's badiaga 200 & alfalfa tonic twice a day for 1 month and revert. Use schwabe's anti-dandruff shampoo and anti-dandruff 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.
