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.

Don't squeeze or pinch. It will form scar. Healing has to be gradual. ---The eruption of pimples, white heads, black marks and oily face are due to excessive sebum secreted by sebaceous glands and hair follicles especially on the face.. Precautions- * Don't scratch or pinch your pimples This will cause more damage and scars. . * Avoid fried and oily foods. * Prefer fruits and green vegetables. * When you apply any cream, sun screen and the like, clean your face at the earliest, so that there will be no adverse action of the chemicals on the delicate skin of face. Your skin ‘breaths’ through its pores which are not to be closed for long.

My suggestion for you is homoeopathic treatment as it is safe and free from any side effects. Please don't go for any laser or hormonal treatment as your problem is already due to hormonal imbalance. I want to know the history of your problem - when and how your facial hairs started increasing, about your menstrual history and what all the medicines have you taken for this?

4-5 GLASSES IN WINTER AND 8-10 GLASSES IN SUMMER. If you do physical activity, requirement may be more. Benefits 1. It restores body water loss due to perspiration and loss in urine. 2. It is essential to maintain water & electrolyte balance in body and to maintain normal osmalality of blood. 3. It increases your perspiration making you feel cold in summer. 4. It helps in reduction of fever by perspiration. 5. It helps in excretion of unwanted metabolites, chemical and drugs from blood in urine. 6. It boosts metabolism. 7. It fastens blood circulation. 8. It prevents stone formation in kidneys and bladder by making urine thin. 9. It prevents burning during urination. 10. It flushes your urinary tract and prevents urinary tract infections (UTIs) 11. It boosts your bowel movements and prevents constipation. Extreme of everything is bad. Excess water intake may cause water intoxication resulting into diminished blood osmolality with water entering more into cells making them to swell and get dead. Specially brain cells start swelling and dying. But this situation does not normally arise during oral water intake but during IV fluid infusions and in oral intake if there is high secretion of ADH (Anti-diuretic hormone = Vasopressin) and after heavy water intake with MDMA (Ecstasy) drug intake in rave parties & clubs due to release of vasopressin. If you are a patient of Congestive heart failure or left ventricular failure or have high ADH secretion, you should keep your oral water intake limited. 12. It improves digestion and absorption.

FIVE HOME REMEDIES TO GET RID OF DANDRUFF



Sporting dandruff flakes in your hair is one of the biggest things you can do wrong on a first date. This embarrassing problem usually gets the best of you. We give you five home remedies that work like a charm and promise not to disappoint.

Lemon
Make a citrusy pal out of this wonder fruit. Lemon helps you lose weight, it helps you do tequila shots, and if that wasn’t enough, it helps you fight dandruff. Repeat this twice a week. Take half a lemon and apply the juice all over your scalp and wet hair. Leave it on for about five minutes. Then rinse.

Baking soda paste
Add a little water to about a spoon of baking soda and rub it on your scalp. Leave it on for three minutes. Baking soda fights against any chemicals that you put in your hair. Rinse and follow this once a week to be flake free and beautiful.

Vinegar
Similar to what your nimbudha does, vinegar too will take you one step closer to dandruff free hair. Add about five ml of vinegar to half a bucket of lukewarm water and use it to rinse your hair after you have washed your tresses with a mild shampoo. Follow this ritual twice a week.

Aspirin
Aspirin is a miracle drug and it can do everything that Wonder wWoman can. Well, almost. Crush an aspirin and add it to a mild shampoo before you wash your hair. Follow this medicated ritual three times a week. Stick to it religiously and you will never see those dreaded white flakes again.

Neem
This one comes out from your daadi ka nuskhabook. Boil four neem leaves in half a cup of water. Leave it overnight. Then wash your hair with the neem water. You can use your regular shampoo after this step. Do this every alternate day.

There you have it—five home remedies to get rid of that unsightly dandruff. Now please, wash your hair, will you?

Hi. Let me you about hairfall. In layman's language, hairfall can be divided into 2 types - temporary hairfall and permanent which is called 'Hairloss' rather and leads to bald areas of smooth and shiny surface. In temporary hairfall, hair grows back again from the same hair root, but in case of permanent hairloss, because of formation of DHT (Di- Hydro -Testosterone) around hair root it gets choked up which subsequently affects the blood supply to the hair and thus hair root is lost forever. Many factors are responsible formation of this DHT or hairloss- hereditary, post-illness/ ailment, post-delivery, post- chemotherapy, nutritional deficiencies, hormaonal imbalance, insufficient sleep, sudden loss of weight, stress/ tensions/ excessive anger any other underlying diseases, etc. Take diet rich in protein like non-veg., eggs, pulses, legumes, sprouts, nuts (sp. walnut and almonds), iron-rich food like green vegetables, also take flaxseeds, green tea, soyabean, fruits, salads, etc. Take proper 6-9hrs of sound sleep. Give up the habit of smooking and excessive alcohol intake. Avoid junk food and any kind of beverages (tea, coffee, aerated drinks, cold drinks, etc.) Avoid canned/ tinned food or food that contains preservatives (eat fresh ones). Avoid vigorous exercises or any supplements provided by the gym! Regular exercising is also one of the important point, but should be done under some good, qualified yoga teacher or instructor for proper guidance; it also releases the stress/ tension in the mind and the body and keeps you FIT and YOUNG!! Take homoeopathic Rx - Schwabe's Wiesbaden 200/ twice a day for 1 month and revert me back. Also, use Schwabe's Arnica shampoo and Hair Growth oil regularly as per the condition of your scalp (minimum 3 times a week). (N.B.: With the help of homoeopathic medicines, we can only prevent further progress of the hairloss, means it will get arrests in the present condition in case of progressive baldness). Get your blood tested for (empty stomach) - CBC, S. Iron, S. Ferritin, S. Calcium, S. Vitamin D3, S. Vitamin B12. If there is any family history of Thyroid dysfunction, get Thyroid function test done as well.
