Strectch marks occur due to sudden stretching or sagging of the skin. Stretch marks also depends on the elasticity of a person’s skin and the skin elasticity depends on the vitamins like vitamin E, omega 3 & 6. Strech marks take a long time to fade, so patience is the key to deal with stretch marks. To lighten the appearance of stretch marks – 1.Scrub the area lightly once a day. You can use some natural ingredients like gramflour, turmeric mixed with some milk to scrub the area. 2.Apply Vitamin E oil or warm olive oil on the area. 3.Apply Aloe Vera gel once a day on the area 4.Cocoa butter mixed with wheat germ oil is also very good at maintaining the skin health and reduce appearance of the skin. 5.You can also apply creams like Elastoderm stretch mark cream to reduce the appearance of stretch marks. Apply this cream daily to see results in few months. 6.Consume diet that is rich in vitamin E, omega 3 and 6 and other skin friendly vitamins like vitamin E and A. 7.Keep yourself hydrated. Drink atleast 8-10 glasses of water to keep your skin soft and supple.

These are the methods to treat pimples & black spots: • Imbalance in hormone level causes excessive sebum production and causes acne. So do not take stress and do exercise daily such as running, jogging and long breathing exercises. • 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 pimple because your finger transfer bacteria to it and make it worse. If you touch it then clean your face with water. • 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. • Steam your face to open the pores, which in turn clear the skin. Steam your face for a couple of minutes. • Take 2 teaspoon of RAKTASHODAK SYRUP of BAIDYANATH company once a day.

Dear lybrate-user You should note that pimples should be given at most care as if not properly treated they ll leave life long scars which are difficult to remove and would require lengthy treatments. Regarding your problem you may note that treatment of acne should include both external application and internal remedy specific to your individual constitution. For your infection you'll require immediate care to inhibit its progression. The few obvious causes for acne are: Increased production of the sex hormones. Androgen stimulates increased sebum production. An aerobic proliferation within the follicles. Intense acute inflammatory response. Continuous touching and squeezing. Hot and humid weather. Use of wrong cosmetics. A comprehensive judicious program is required to get rid of acne and its scars. Treatment for Acne should aim at: Reducing the bacterial population of hair follicle. Encouraging the shedding of the follicular horny plugs to free obstruction. Reducing the rate of sebum production either by acting on the sebaceous glands or indirectly by inhibiting the effect of androgen on sebaceous glands. Usage of anti-inflammatory agents to reduce the effect of acne inflammation on the skin. Also keep in mind that any malady expressed outside on your skin is a result of some internal derangement you might be facing. You require a holistic treatment which has no side effects to get a complete and permanent cure. You can view my T.V Programs on youtube related to Acne/ Pimples. Trust this serves your introductory purpose. Please feel free to contact me.

Acne scars can be easily treated with laser procedures, MDA or chemical peels depending upon what exactly your skin requires. You should visit a Dermatologist for an adequate prescription and treatment. You may also be prescribed certain topical medication to lighten the scars.

I have white spots on my body from last 2months I know it is vitiligo. Is this disease or infection. Please give suggestions on following 1 diet 2 medicines 3 reason of this Please give me some suggestions.

Homeopath,
Dear lybrate user, the color of our skin is due the formation of a color pigment called melanin. The synthesis of melanin is dependant on the body temperature. However, if the melanin synthesis is decreased or stopped due to any abnormal reason then the skin of that area becomes hypo-pigmented & looks colorless. Follow the medications as directed:- 1) take 4 tablets of homoeopathic arsenicum sulphum flavam 6x tablets along with a cup of lukewarm water at early morning daily. 2) apply homoeopathic mother tincture ammi visnaga q on the colorless part of your skin & keep that area sunlight for 30 minutes daily. 3) after dinner take 1 capsule from ayurvedic shatawari capsules. 4) before going to bed clean the affected area properly & apply ayurvedic pigmento ointment on those colorless part of your skin. Continue the aforesaid medication for at least 1 month to observe visible results. However, before starting any medication kindly check whether you are having any loss of sensation on that colorless part of skin. If you experience slight loss of sensation on that colorless part of skin then you should contact your local dermatologist immediately.
