keep your face dry, wash 4-5 time a day, apply retino-a cream at night and wash your face before sun rise as sun rays can darken your face. A quick and easy solution can be found in your kitchen or your nearest grocery store — lemon juice. Lemons have vitamin C that can lighten dark spots on your face. It’s easy to apply. Put some fresh lemon juice on a cotton ball and rub it directly on the affected skin area. 1. Allow it to dry and then wash it off with plain water. 2. Continue applying this dark spot removal home remedy for at least two weeks to get the desired result. If you have delicate or sensitive skin, you can dilute the lemon juice with plain water, rosewater, or honey. You can also use lime juice to get rid of black spots, applying it in the same manner as described above.

Due to sun sensitivity disease conditions like Polymorphous light eruption (PMLE, Actinic prurigo (hereditary PMLE, Photoallergic eruption, Solar urticaria To help prevent symptoms of a sun allergy, you must protect your skin from exposure to sunlight. Try the following suggestions: Before you go outdoors apply a sunscreen that has a sun protection factor (SPF) of at least 15 or above, with a broad spectrum of protection against both ultraviolet A and ultraviolet B rays. If you have allergy to this then other prevention do for that like: Use a sunblock on your lips. Choose a product that has been formulated especially for the lips, with an SPF of 20 or more. Limit your time outdoors when the sun is at its peak — mostly from about 10 a. M. To 3 p. M. Wear sunglasses with ultraviolet light protection. Wear long pants, a shirt with long sleeves and a hat with a wide brim. Be aware of skin care products and medicines that may trigger a photoallergic eruption. These include certain antibiotics and oral birth control pills, as well as prescription medicines that are used to treat psychiatric illness, high blood pressure and heart failure. If you are taking a prescription medication, and you normally spend a great deal of time outdoors, ask your doctor whether you should take any special precautions to avoid sun exposure while you are on the drug. Take long treatment course for that but prevention is better then cure for this.

I have Dark marks on my face.what should I do?
Believe me, if you are happy from inside and taking nutritious, healthy food and daily yoga or some kind of exercises, it will be automatically reflected on your face. Yes, the colour which is inherited from your parents/ ancestors, cannot be changed, but you can try to get glow on your face!! Daily Regime: Apart from these, you do follow CTMP, i.e., cleansing, toning, moisturising and protection (apply liberally sunscreen with SPF-30 – a thick layer of Bakson's Suncare cream may be, 20-30 minutes before going out daily and repeat it's application after every 3-4hrs.) after washing your face daily; use the products as per your skin type. This will change the skin texture and skin tone. In case you do have tanning, apply honey with a dash of lime on your face. Eat right and healthy that too on time, relieve your stress/ tensions, sleep well, stop smoking, as this restricts blood flow to your face and leaves you with a greyish complexion. lead a healthy lifestyle! Apart from this, avoid anger, anxiety, fear which increases stress hormone in the body and subsequently makes your complexion darker! (Hormonal imbalances also plays a major role). If the dull and dark skin tone is due to any underlying ailment or diseases, need to look into the matter. Diet: -Increase your Vitamin C intake (lemon,orange,gooseberry,etc.Fruits/juices, strawberries, sweet peppers, tomatoes, cantaloupe, and green peas). - Eat more Vitamin A (nonfat milk, oysters, and egg yolks, carrots, watermelon, papaya, tomatoes, or other dark colored produce) . If you feel your skin is weak or not tight enough, that usually suggests a lack of Vitamin A. Medicine: You can also use homoeopathic cream - Medicynth's Whitch Hazel daily at night. Home remedies: Apply fresh-squeezed lemon juice to your entire face and neck. Leave it on for 10 minutes and then wash it off with lukewarm water. After this, rub cucumber slices on your skin to soften and moisturize it. Do this daily or every other day. Another option is squeeze the juice of one-half lemon and mix one to two tablespoons of raw honey in it. Apply it on your face, leave it on for 15 to 20 minutes and then rinse it off. To exfoliate your skin, mix two teaspoons each of lemon juice and sugar. Apply the mixture on your face, neck and hands. Scrub in a circular motion and leave it on for 10 minutes. Then rinse it off with lukewarm water. Follow this remedy once a week to enjoy glowing skin.

1. Use mild shampoo to wash hair (you can make your own shampoo using reetha and shikakai at home) 2. Stop using conditioners. Use natural conditioners like egg, yougurt and lemon. 3. Massage your scalp with a mix of oils like olive, coconut, sesame, castor oil at night. 4. Apply raw amla juice on hair thrice a week. 5. Rub your scalp with the juice of white onion. 6. Use a paste of bhringraj on hair. 7. You can use some good hair packs like - fenugreek and yogurt, egg and green tea. 8. You can rinse your hair with organic apple cider vinegar after washing your hair to maintain ph balance of your hair. 9. Hair health depends on the amount of protein in your diet. Foods like chicken, eggs, fish, nuts, dry fruits gives you the required nutrients to keep your skin and hair healthy. So consume plenty of them. Eat things rich in vitamin c like amla and oranges. 10. Drink lots of water to flush out toxins from the body.

Hello, this is called albinism. Defective gene that passes from both the parents cause it. It is inherited and not contagious. White spots on the body, called vitiligo is a loss of pigmentation in the body, can happen with anyone at any stage of life, but that is not contagious either.

My daughter is 5 years old. She is down eczema symptoms. What is the remedy?

Eczema has not immediate cure. You need to keep her skin moist by using very less soap or using a neutral ph soap. Also you need to repeatedly keep moisturizing the skin with moisturizers or oil. Certain foods might trigger the eczema--you need to eliminate those foods. What those foods are you will have to find out by trial and error. In severe eczema, doctors do prescribed medicated creams, for instant relief from itching. Otherwise, with time, the eczema improves and most children outgrow childhood eczema. I have found that if the child drinks half a glass of fresh coconut milk every day there is an overall improvement in the eczema. It also helps the nutrition of the child as coconut milk is a good food for children.

Hi. You lose your hair if you have certain diseases, such as thyroid problems, diabetes, or lupus. If you take certain medicines or have chemotherapy for cancer, you may also lose your hair.

Proper amount of sleep every night is vital for your overall health and that of your hair as well. Sleep is the time for the body to regenerate and recover from the day?s work, removing the toxins you inhaled, eaten and drank. A sound sleep helps you in getting a sound and healthy body and controls hair falling.

You are young and at this age it is definitely possible to control hair fall follow the following points 1. If you are suffering from dandruff, treat that immediately. A combination of sesame oil and vinegar - applied to the scalp an hour before head bath on alternate days is a great way to manage dandruff 2. Eat healthy. Nourishment for the hair comes form within. Amla/gooseberry, curry leaves, almonds, fenugreek, fresh fruits and vegetables promote hair growth, include them in your daily diet 3. Shampoo - use a mild shampoo, preferably herbal shampoos as they tend to protect the scalp. 4. Hair oil - oil your hair an hour before hair bath. Use luke warm oil to oil your hair as it penetrates better, a combination of oils like olive oil, almond oil, sesame oil, coconut oil and castor oil is a excellent way to promote hair growth and to prevent hair fall.
