Everybody Has Them! Remove Blackheads & Whiteheads Naturally.

Everybody Has Them! Remove Blackheads & Whiteheads Naturally.
Natural ways to remove your blackheads and whiteheads

Blackheads and whiteheads not only make you look unattractive, but also are hard to cure and keep recurring. Fortunately, there are quite a few substances and food items available in every kitchen that can effectively and naturally treat them and can also prevent them from recurring!

Some of the best natural treatments for whiteheads and blackheads are-

1. Use milk- milk is a natural cleanser. Add a hint of lemon juice to half a cup of milk and mix it well with half a spoon of salt. Apply this mixture while scrubbing thoroughly on the entire surface of your face skin. This method decreases whiteheads and blackheads in a week and also stops them from recurring.

2. Cinnamon & honey- a paste made up of one tablespoon of cinnamon powder and adequate honey is a very effective mixture. Apply it on the face, especially on the affected areas, and keep it on for the entire night. Wash it off in the morning. Continue this every night till whiteheads and blackheads disappear.

3. Baking soda- baking soda is exceptionally good to treat several skin problems. A mixture of baking soda and water must be applied on the face. Once it dries, wash it off. This mixture dries off the whiteheads and blackheads and also removes excessive oil from the skin.

4. Mint & turmeric- extract 4 teaspoons of mint juice and add half a spoon of turmeric making a thick paste. Apply it on affected areas for a while. Once this paste dries off, wash your face with water. Milk can replace mint juice if desired.

5. Lemon juice- squeeze out lemon juice from 2 big sized lemons. Add some water to reduce the acidic effect. Dip a cotton ball in it and rub it across your face. You can do this several times a day. This is the simplest method to treat whiteheads and blackheads.

Apple is a miracle fruit for the skin.The alpha hydroxy acids or AHA’s present in apples improves skin color and elasticity of the skin.Soak peeled apple slices in milk for 20 minutes and then blend to form a creamy paste.Place in the freezer for 10 minutes, and then mix a tsp of lemon juice, apply all over your face and neck.Rinse off after 15 minutes with cool water and massage an ice cube.The skin looks baby soft, smooth with a rosy white glow.Follow this for a week to get fair skin naturally. or All the natural ingredients (Tretinoin, Hydroquinone and Cortisone) inlcuded in Melamet have only one goal: to improve your skin tone. Tretinoin helps prevent and treat acne and wrinkles by peeling off dead skin cells. Hydroquinone is the skin lightener agent in this equation that improves the overall tone of your skin. Cortisone is an anti-allergy ingredient that reduces inflammation and/or itching.' How to Use: Use the Melamet Cream just before bedtime. Wash it off in the morning, and apply some sunscreen if you intend to go outdoors. Failure to do so will cause significant damage and even result in your skin turning black.

Vulva Dryness - How Homeopathy Can Help Manage it?

Vulva Dryness - How Homeopathy Can Help Manage it?

The vaginal or the vulvar area is a well-lubricated area which serves various functions. Vaginal dryness can be not just an embarrassing issue, but an overall health issue. One of the main reasons for decreased sex drive in women is vaginal dryness. Though a woman of any age can have vaginal dryness, it is common for the following groups, menopause, after childbirth, during lactation, and in women on hormone replacement therapy. The hormone levels play a major role in the vaginal dryness, and so these conditions lead to increased dryness. It can also lead to vaginal itching and burning. It may also lead to bleeding in severe cases. There is a host of associated complaints like mood swings, irritability, depression, hot flushes, and reduced libido in these women. Homeopathy offers to help get rid of not just the dryness but these associated symptoms as well.

The most commonly used, three homoeopathic remedies for treating vaginal dryness are Sepia, Lycopodium, Platina, Argentum Nitricum, and Natrum Mur. Each of these should be used based on accompanying symptoms, and self-medication is not advised. The doctor will have a long discussion with you to identify the associated symptoms and then draw up a customised treatment plan. However, the indications for each of the ingredients are listed below. Given the sensitive nature of the topic, it is also advisable to include the partner in these discussions as they can cooperate and help in managing the mood swings and in working out alternatives to the impaired sexual life.

  1. Sepia: One of the most widely used compound to treat vaginal dryness, it yields great results when it is associated
    1. Painful sex and bleeding following intercourse
    2. Associated with menopause and therefore mood swings and hot flushes
    3. A bearing down sensation where the woman feels the uterus is going to slip down into the vagina
    4. Genitals are tender to the touch
    5. These women have an aversion to sex
  2. Lycopodium: This is another commonly used ingredient, and indicated in women who have vulvar dryness is associated with vaginal burning sensation
  3. Platina: The vaginal dryness is accompanied by genital hypersensitivity, increased sexual urge, and itching. It is also useful in cases of both dyspareunia and vaginismus (involuntary contractions of the vagina).
  4. Argentum Nitricum: This is most suitable when there is painful sex followed by bleeding.
  5. Natrum Mur: This is useful when there is itching and soreness in the vaginal area associated with an acrid discharge.
  6. Bellis perennis: This is useful when there is a bruised sensation in the vagina, which leads to interruption of intercourse.

As noted above, these are some common ingredients but should not be used without consultation with a doctor. Involving the partner is also useful in getting improved results.

Botox - For Beautiful You Forever

Botox - For Beautiful You Forever

Botox  is safe, effective, and it really works. It can be used for both men and women above 30s. BOTOX releases the contraction of the muscle in order to reduce muscle-causing wrinkles in the upper facial area. Botox involves a tiny injection into areas. Botox is relatively painless and takes ten mnutes. No wonder it is known as the “LUNCH TIME PROCEDURE ”. Botox paralyzes those muscles and gets rid of wrinkles around the eye area(CROW’S FEET), forehead (FROWN LINES), drooping angles of mouth, dimple chin, nasolabial folds, neck bands, Brow flare . For other applications such as hyperhidrosis or excessive sweating, Botox really works. So Botox surgery is minimally invasive. It's a small needle stick and it really works as advertised. Avoid aspirin , vitamin E and blood thinners for one to two weeks before undergoing botox treatment. It is the best in the hands of an expert dermatologist. For many doctors, what's interesting is they have either physician assistants or nurse practitioners that are giving the Botox injections within their office WHICH IS UNETHICAL   AND  MALPRACTICE. Botox’s effect on smoothing out facial wrinkles is only temporary (upto 6 months) so has to be repeated. When considering ne’s facial enhancement options, BOTOX is quite affordable. Many people are surprised at the relative cost as compared to other appearance related investments such as facials, hair coloring etc.

Hello firstly start taking a full nutritious diet. A good diet is a nutritional lifestyle that promotes good health. A good diet must include several food groups because one single group cannot provide everything a human needs for good health. And what ever we are eating that reflects on our body and skin. 1. Homoeopathic medicine for fair skin is berberis aquafolium mother tincture. Take 5 drops of it mix with water, twice a day. 2. Apply this tincture in diluted form on your face with cotton once a day. 3. Wash your face with besan and curd, mix a pinch of turmeric also. 5. Apply rose water to your face at night. 6. Apply cucumber juice+ lemon juice+ tomato juice on your face. 7. Apply multani mitti pack on the face, wash it off after it dries.

You should take some stool softening medicine like Haritaki Churna/ Sushruta Churna in night with warm water so that bowel movement is comfortable. Take SItz bath (Hot water tub bath) after bowel movement and repeat for 2-3 times a day followed by application of Sushruta ointment and Lekhan powder in anal canal. Put 5 ml of Sushruta oil in anal passage in night. Xylocaine gel can be applied before and after bowel movement to relieve pain. For further support you may call reception at Sushruta Ano rectal Institute.
