I am 18 years old male. How to avoid acne? Am suffering from pimples problem. Please give me a solution.
These are the methods to treat fastly pimples: • 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.

Oils may help you, but alone it can't treat your hairfall. If you want to use oil, olive oil can be an option for you. Apply this oil at night and wash your hair in morning. You can use jaborandi oil too. You will get it from homoeopathic store. There are no precautions as such. Thank you.

Say your friend to clean the gut, do fresh air walks, do deep breathing exercises, have rich iron, leafy greens, fiberous fruits and light major meals.

Home remedies can be used to lighten your complexion and remove the tanning effect. For simple detanning mix rice flour and besan (gram flour) in equal ratio, add some curd to it and add some water to make a paste. Apply it on skin and leave to dry. Once dried take almond oil in hand move over it in circular motion to remove it. Later wash with cold water and pat dry.

Please don't use any creams or lotions. It suppress the sebum secretion and block the pores which leads to bacterial contamination and results in more pimples. The other causes of pimples are hormonal imbalance, dandruff, diet rich in oil and non veg, poor hygiene etc. Treating acne in the right way at the earliest will remove pimples without any scarring and gives a long lasting results. But acne patients are more concern about the pimples and try all creams and soaps available in markets which creates much worse their condition. There are very good homoeopathic medicines for pimples which gives rapid and permanent results without any side effects. Along with the medicines there are some specific food which should be avoided for the effectiveness of treatment. You should take plenty of vegetables and fruits...Drink 3-4 litres of water...Homoeopathic cream topi berberis (wilmar schwabe) daily night apply. Internal medicines are better than external application.For further information please click online button
