Hello, For Pink Stretch Marks: You can massage gently any good brand oil containing more percentage of vitamin E like olive oil, coconut oil, egg oil, bio-oil twice and aloe vera daily, but after completion of 1&1/2 months of giving birth (if the delivery was normal) or after 4 months (in case of caesarean section that too depends upon the condition of the stitches and the area). Make sure you are eating a nutrient based diet. Make sure that your skin is getting the proper nutrition so that it can repair and stay healthy. Drink enough water (2 litres daily), as the skin loses its elasticity when you are dehydrated. Being at a healthy weight also helps. Use Vaseline, or petroleum jelly to keep the skin moisturized. Can take vitamin C & E orally. *******************If the stretch marks are white in colour, then you will have to opt for Laser which can only help you to reduce it to some extent only**************************

Hi lybrate-user, thank you very much for your query. Hair loss, now-a-days, is common among males and females of all age groups. Hair loss is mostly genetic, so if hair loss runs in your family, you are most likely to suffer from hair loss too. Hair loss happens either in clumps, which is overall hair loss, or focused on any one part of head - especially the crown. While genetics play a big role, some additional factors can aggravate hair loss - hormonal imbalance, alopecia areata, stress, thyroid disease, anemia, protein deficiency, and low vitamin levels may cause hair loss in you. Oiling your hair with a mixture of oils like olive, sesame, coconut and castor oil provides moisture to your hair and prevents them from drying and breakage. At insta-sculpt we have advanced technologies like mesotherapy, derma roller and high frequency which can easily treat the hair problem. The treatment is safe, non surgical and non invasive without any side effects. No. Of sessions and time period required depends on the chronicity and the type of hair. If you can send us your photograph, or have an audio or video consultation with us through skype, we will be in a better position to advice you. We would look forward to seeing you at any of our insta-sculpts center.

Acne can be a very frustrating disease for patients. It can be annoyingly chronic, and there is a large amount of misinformation about how to treat and prevent it. Here are some general tips: 1) prevention: wash your face twice a day with a mild soap. You want to clear away the dead skin cells and dirt that might otherwise lead to acne, but don't dry out your face, scrub it roughly, or wash it excessively. 2) prevention: use only moisturizers (or other skincare products) that are labeled as" non-comedogenic" or" non-acnegenic. These are ones designed not to contribute to breakouts. Some natural products are likely to be fine, but don't blindly trust everything labeled as" natural"; not everything" natural" is going to be ideal for your skin. Consider an oil-free, non-comedogenic moisturizer with an spf of 30 or higher (protects your skin from sun damage), such as a moisturizer like cerave facial moisturizing lotion am with spf 30, cetaphil daily facial moisturizer with spf 50, or neutrogena healthy defense moisturizer with spf 45 (among others - check your pharmacy shelves). 3) treatment: avoid acne myths, such as home remedies for breakouts. Proven first-line therapies include benzoyl peroxide, topical retinoids, topical antibiotic creams, and oral antibiotic pills. Benzoyl peroxide can be found over-the-counter, and the others can be prescribed by a doctor after a medical evaluation. These will actually give results. 4) treatment: don't squeeze or pick at pimples. This can worsen inflammation and potentially scarring later.

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.

Hi. Take diet rich in protein like non-veg, eggs (it's loaded with essential nutrients such as proteins, vitamin b12, iron, zinc and omega 6 fatty acids in large amounts and biotin), different pulses & legumes, sprouts, nuts (sp. Walnuts and almonds); iron-rich food like green vegetables, dates, carrots, prunes, green peas; also oats, shrimp, take flaxseeds, sunflower seeds, sesame seeds, green tea, soyabean, fruits, salads, etc. Take low-fat dairy products (they also contain whey and casein, two high-quality protein sources) take proper 6-9hrs of sound sleep. Give up the habit of smoking 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 use of hard water to wash the head rather use boiled water for head wash. Avoid use of harsh hair colour, hair treatment like rebonding, straightening, perming, etc. Avoid vigorous exercises or any supplements provided by the gym! cover your head with scarf or cap while stepping outside. Use rose wood/ any wooden hair comb to brush your hair. 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! medication: take homoeopathic rx - schwabe's selenium 200 & alfalfa tonic twice a day for 1 month and revert. Also, use schwabe's arnica shampoo and hair growth oil regularly as per the condition of your scalp (minimum 3 times a week). After shampooing, use bakson's arnica hair conditioner as well after every head wash.

Dear lybrate user, pimples/ acne vulgaris is a chronic inflammatory skin disease which develops due to blocking of the hair follicles in skin. These blockages occur due to 4 abnormal processes: 1) excess sebum production due to androgens 2) excessive deposition of the protein keratin leading to comedone formation 3) infection of propionibacterium acnes (p. Acnes) bacteria on the hair follicles 4) local release of pro-inflammatory chemicals in the skin. Neither can you stop the overproduction of androgen or keratin protein nor can you stop the release of pro-inflammatory chemicals because all these processes takes place internally in your skin. However you can stop the accumulation of p. Acnes bacteria on your skin by preventing your skin from getting oily. Always keep a handkerchief with you wherever you go outside. You should wipe off the slightest amount of sweat from your face as soon as you perspire on entering your room from outside wash your face with an oil-free, non-moisturizing face wash. Take a low carbohydrate diet. Do some exercise daily. Drink a lots of water to avoid constipation. Avoid pricking the pimples or popping the sebum as it may lead to black pigmentation & permanent scar formation. You can also take homoeopathic calcarea phos 200, 5 drops, thrice daily, in empty stomach also you can apply homoeopathic mother tincture berberis aquifoium q on the dark spots on your skin which are produced after the resolution of the pimples.
