Acne is a common skin problem. Various oral and topical medications are available. Proper compliance of 3-4 months give satisfactory results. Type of skin, type of acne lesions and the severity decides management, that is why examination is important in each case. Marks and scars are also treatable with peels, mda and lasers.

Shave regularly under your arms. Underarm hair can increase body odour because it traps sweat and bacteria. • Apply tea-tree oil to problem areas, as long as it doesn’t irritate your skin. This oil, from an Australian tree, kills bacteria and also has a pleasant scent. • Essential oils of lavender, pine and peppermint fight bacteria. They also smell nice. Since some people have a skin reaction to certain oils, test the underarm area or a small patch of skin before using. • Delightfully fragrant, sage can fight bacteria and reduce perspiration. You can purchase a solution of sage tincture or diluted sage oil, or brew some sage tea that you cool and store in a bottle. Any of these liquids can be used in the underarm area, but not around the genitals. And after using sage, wash your hands before touching your face.

Natural Treatment for Dark Circles

Natural Treatment for Dark Circles

8 natural remedies to get rid of under eye dark circles

Dark circles under your eyes can be a result of lack of sleep, depression, stress, aging, dry skin or hereditary problems.

People often ignore dark circles and try to conceal them under layers of make-up but that is not the real solution. The commercially available creams that calm to reduce dark circles are expensive and the results are not that great.

So, here are some easy home remedies that can help you get rid of dark cycles naturally:

1. Almond oil

Almond oil is very beneficial for the delicate skin around your eyes. Regular usage of almond oil will help fade your under eye circles.

How to use: before going to bed, apply a little almond oil over the dark circles and gently massage it into the skin. Leave it on overnight. Wash it off with cold water the next morning.

2. Cucumber

Cucumbers have skin-lightening and astringent properties that help fix those raccoon eyes naturally.

How to use: cut a fresh cucumber into thick slices and chill them in the refrigerator for 30 minutes. Put the slices onto the affected skin area for about 10 minutes. Wash the area with water. Use twice daily for about a week to see results.

3. Raw potato

There are natural bleaching agents present in potato that can help lighten dark circles and get rid of puffiness around the eyes.

How to use: grate one or two raw potatoes to extract the juice. Soak a cotton ball in the juice and place it over your closed eyes. Make sure the juice covers the dark circles under your eyes as well as the eyelids. Leave it for 10 to 15 minutes. Rinse your eyelids well with cool water. Repeat once or twice daily for a few weeks.

4. Rose water

Rose water is an incredible ingredient for skin care. It rejuvenates the skin and has a soothing effect on tired eyes. Due to its mild astringent properties, it also works as a great skin toner.

How to use: soak cotton eye pads in pure rose water for a few minutes. Put the soaked pads on your closed eyelids. Leave them on for about 15 minutes. Follow this remedy twice daily for a few weeks.

5. Tomato

Tomatoes have bleaching properties that can lighten skin to a great extent. They are rich in vitamin c and lycopene that are excellent for healthy skin

How to use: mix one teaspoon of tomato juice with a one-half teaspoon of lemon juice. Gently apply this mixture on the dark circles and leave it for 10 minutes. Rinse it off with water. Follow this remedy twice a day for a few weeks. Simply using tomato juice will also work. Alternatively, you can also drink a glass of tomato juice with some mint leaves, lemon juice, and salt twice a week for best results.

6. Lemon juice

The vitamin c present in lemon juice can also help remove dark circles under the eyes due to its skin-lightening properties.

How to use: use a cotton ball to apply fresh lemon juice around your eyes. Leave it on for about 10 minutes and rinse it off. Do this once daily for a few weeks.

7. Coconut oil

Due to its moisturizing quality, coconut oil also promotes smooth skin and prevents wrinkles and fine lines under eyes.

How to use: massaging with coconut oil is an effective natural remedy to lighten dark circles

8. Tea bags

The caffeine and antioxidants present in tea can be highly beneficial for getting rid of dark circles as well as puffiness under eyes. The tannins, in particular, help decrease swelling and discoloration.

How to use: chill two used green or black tea bags in the refrigerator for about half an hour. Place one tea bag over each eye and leave it on for 10 to 15 minutes. Remove the tea bags and wash your face. Repeat once or twice daily for a few weeks. Be careful not to get the tea in your eyes.

I have dark circles under my eyes while i'm taking sufficient sleep. How can I reduce these dark circles?
Some causes behind the dark circles are hereditary, aging, dry skin, prolonged crying, working for long hours in front of a computer, mental or physical stress, lack of sleep and an unhealthy diet. Take homoeopathic medicine Ferrum Phos 6X (3 tabs) twice a day for 15 days and revert. Follow the tips: *Get an adequate amount of sleep. *Drink at least 8 -10 glasses of water everyday. *Eat vegetables and fruits rich in vitamin A to prevent dark circles around eyes. *Avoid stress. *Gently massaging almond oil or olive oil around the eyes during nights can give great results in reducing the dark circles.

Yes, facial is good, but bleaching damages the skin. You can also apply Bengal gram flour mixed with honey, lemon, cinnamon powder, turmeric powder and water on your skin and leave it for 15 minutes. After that wash it with water without using soap. Do it twice a week for better results.

my skin is becoming darker day by day what to do to get my original colour? I use to be fair

BHMS
Homeopath, Faridabad
my skin is becoming darker day by day what to do to get my original colour? I use to be fair
Use this home remedy:- *Orange and curd mixture works well on dark damaged tanned skin. Orange has skin lightening properties and works well as a face mask. Curd works as the cleansing component on the skin and gives brightening glow to the skin. Mix dry orange peels with curd and make a fine paste. Gently apply this pack on your face and wash it with chilled rose water after 10-15 minutes. It makes your skin look fairer naturally. * mix cucumber juice+ tomato juice , then apply this on your face. Exfoliate your skin at least twice a week. This will help to remove the dead cells and open pores, thus lightening your skin tone. Always use sunscreen 20 minutes before stepping out from home. A good sunscreen with SPF 40 will help to prevent tan in the Indian climate. Drink adequate amount of water to keep your body and skin hydrated. A good sleep at night is also very important for healthy and glowing skin Apply Bio- vally's skin lightening cream.

Ultrasound findings, post void urine residue and psa report are the basic investigations, besides a physical examination, before one can decide whether the prostate treatment is required or not. Merely a mild increase in size of prostate carries no significance. Burning sensation in urine may well be due to urinary infection or inflammation of the urethera /prepuce / glans. Diet has no relevance except that you must take lot of fluids besides a good nutritious & hygienic diet.

Please give suggestion for the reduction and control of pigmentation during pregnancy. Please advise.

MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology
Gynaecologist, Mumbai
Please give suggestion for the reduction and control of pigmentation during pregnancy. Please advise.
Skin pigmentation is caused by hormonal changes during pregnancy, which increases production of melanin. It disappears on their own after delivery. But we can reduce the formation of melanin by less exposure to sun. Protect yourself from the sun's UV rays which increases pigment changes. Use sunscreen lotion if you can’t avoid more exposure. Skin-bleaching products should not be used during pregnancy.

I have got a black scar on my nose which was left behind from a pimple. Unlike other scars, which normally fade away with time, this one is stubbornly sitting on my nose since past 3 years. I have tried everything from saloon facial to various creams & scrubs, but nothing seems to be working. Also tried Bio oil. Still no effect. Can you recommend some strong treatment that can help me get rid of this stubborn scar? Thanks.

. You need to take around 5-6 almonds and soak it overnight. Now take out the skin of the almond with a knife or a sharp substance. Now grind the soaked almond in the morning and add the ingredients like half spoon of honey as well as sandalwood powder. You need to mix them and get a fine paste out of it. This is now ready to be applied over your face and the skin where dark spots have formed and you are willing to remove it entirely. You can remove the paste once the time of 30 minutes is over.
