Hi. Dark circles can be temporary (means happens after any recent or chronic diseases or underlying medical condition, insufficient sleep, nutritional deificiency, working long hrs. On computer, lack of rest, stress/ tension, etc.) which can be improved by fixing the underlying cause or the problem or can be inherited from your parent's genes which can't be treated or cured! management: eat healthy and on time. Avoid junk. Drink plenty of water (as dehydration can cause dull or patchy skin). Sleep well. Wear anti-glare spectacles while working on computer. Reduce your stress/ tension through yoga, meditation or any other excercises (it not only improves your blood circulation, but also reduces the production of stress hormones by the body as well as increases happy hormones in the body). Use sunglasses regularly and not to forget to apply a thick layer of bakson's suncare sunscreen liberally, 20-30 minutes before stepping out in the sun and apply the same again after 3-4 hours if you have exposure to sunlight for long hours. Take homoeopathic medicines - cina 1m/ one dose daily at night for 10 days apply medicynth's whitch hazel cream and bakson's under eye cream twice - in morning and at night daily.

These are the methods to treat black heads -.• Blackheads are formed due to blocking of skin pores. Steam your face to open the pores, which in turn clear the skin. Steam your face for a couple of minutes. • Do YOGASANA daily. Especially do SINHASANA & SARVANGASANA daily. • Use oil free face wash and drink 7 -8 glass of water daily. • Do not touch your face again & again because your finger transfer bacteria to it and make it worse. If you touch it then clean your face with water. • Mix black pepper powder in some water to make paste & apply on the blackheads three times a week. • Take cucumber and papaya pulp. Mix it well and add 1 tablespoon Turmeric. Make a paste and apply it on face and leave it for 15 minutes. • Take 2 teaspoon of MAHAMANJISTHARISTA of BAIDYANATH company, meal it in a glass of water & take it once a day after meals

Dark eye circle prevention There are simple things you can do to alleviate dark circles under your eyes. Sometimes the problem is minor or temporary, in which case an inexpensive home treatment may be appropriate. ? Get enough rest. Sleep deprivation only makes dark eye circles more obvious. ? A gently applied black tea bag or cold compress can reduce blood vessel dilation. ? To decrease pigmentation, protect against the sun by wearing (large) sunglasses. ? Slight elevation of the head during sleep will help prevent fluids from draining toward the eyes. ? Refrain from smoking. If you already smoke, quit now. ? Nasal decongestants, such as saline spray or a saltwater solution, can help prevent blood vessel dilation. ? Don't rub the area around the eyes; it will only make the condition worse. ? Ointment --RevaleSkin Eye Replenishing cream Skin resurfacing for under eye circles Laser resurfacing and chemical peel may be used to help reduce dark circles by increasing collagen production, decreasing pigmentation problems, and improving overall skin quality. However, laser treatments and chemical peels are most effective when used as part of a combination approach in treating dark circles. For further assistance you can concern me privately.

Hello, to get rid of black heads and white heads take half lemon and 4- 5 drops of honey. Scrub your face gently for 5 mins and concentrate on the affected areas like nose, chin, etc. Leave the mixture of lemon and honey on face for 10-15 mins. You will see results immediately. Lemon juice will cleanse and honey will moisturise. It will reduce the oilness also. For herbal remedies to cure it permanently you can consult me.

Hello, you can take homoeopathic medicine kali brom 30 (4 drops in little water) thrice a day for a week and revert. Along with the medicines, also take the following self-care steps to lessen the effects of acne: clean your skin gently with a mild face wash removing all dirt or make-up. Wash many times a day with plain water. Try not to squeeze, scratch, pick, or rub the pimples, it can lead to scarring and skin infections. Avoid touching your face with your hands or fingers. Make a habit of 8-10 glasses of water in a day. Avoid stress and anger.

blackheads on face inside permanently and my skin is ver oily. Whenever I press it becomes bigger.
Do this daily for blackheads and oily skin - use tea tree face wash and toner twice daily. Use aha glow face wash once in a day. Use sunscreen with spf 30 daily. Use natural face pack of multani mitti and lemon 2 times a week. You can also use apple cider vinegar for 5 minutes after washing your face and splash it clean with water. Most important is diet- do not eat junk, eat more vegetables and fruits especially with vitamin c.

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