That is dead skin. When we sit, your buttocks take all the pressure. The skin on that area naturally gets weary. Scrub the area with a good scrubber and loofah and apply olive oil daily.

Some people have more oily skin which can be due to genetic reasons. You may also be getting whiteheads due to this. This can be treated with creams and facewash. Please call me or send me photos through online consult option for proper examination and advice on treatment.

Cigerate is injourious for health as all we allready know it. But is skin problem can come for taking cigerate?

Here we can't say that the skin problem you have is due to smoking or by any reason. But as smoking is not good for health, n its impact will be shown on vital organs[majorly in lungs] so, as immunity levels will be automatically decreased, thats why, there will be chances to get many other diseases, as smoking is the one of most reasons for developing allergic manifestations. So, it may result in any form.

Acne or pimples is a chronic disease involving the pilosebaceous follicles. Sebaceous glands are found most abundantly on the face and scalp, though they are present on every part of the skin except the palms of the hands and soles of the feet. Though the sebaceous gland is a mini organ, it is anatomically and functionally related to the hair follicle. Cutaneous disorders attributed to the sebaceous gland are really disorders of the entire pilosebaceous unit. The areas most commonly involved in acne are the face, upper chest, and back. Other less common areas include the upper arms, buttocks, and upper thighs. Acne arises from the interaction of 4 factors 1.Excess sebum production caused by androgenic stimulation of sebaceous glands; 2.Outlet obstruction of the sebaceous follicle arising from excess production of keratinocytes (the basic cell of the epidermis); 3.Increased proliferation of the bacteriaPropionibacterium acnes that normally live in the sebaceous follicle; and 4.Inflammation caused by sebum escaping into the surrounding skin. Excessive manipulation by the patient, causing the primary lesions to disappear and leaving excoriated, raw-looking marks. This is called acne excoriée and can cause scar formation. For removal of black marks you can apply pure coconut oil daily before sleeping ,don't apply while going out in sun together with this constitutional homoeopathic treatment will give you best results.

You can take homoeopathic medicines for pimples – Berberis Aquefolium Q/ 10 drops in 1/2 cup of water/ thrice a day and Kali Brom. 200/ thrice a day – for 20 days. Wash your face with Bakson's Facewash and follow CTMP, i.e., cleansing, toning, moisturising and protection (apply liberally Sunscreen Gel with SPF-30) after washing your face daily. Use home-made remedies: - Take 1 tbsp of fuller's earth (multani mitti) + a dash of lime + bit of rosewater – apply this on your face till it gets dried up, then rinse it off. - Take 1 tsp of Alum (or fitkari), make it slightly wet with water and apply this on your wet face, spread it well; let it dry and rinse it off. Alum remove your excessive moisture or oil and it also tightens the skin's tonicity. For your dark circle: Use Bakson's Under eye cream in the morning and at night. Eat healthy, nutritious food, plenty of water, green vegetables, fruits, salads, nuts. Enough of rest and sound sleep. Wear anti-glare spectacles while working on computer.
