I am 25 years old weighing 63 kgs height 5.3" and have been dieting and exercising regularly since last 6 months. I had lot of acne for which I was suggested to lose weight. I've lost weight + inches. I've been regularly eating fruits + veggies instead of fried and junk. The downside is that my face has gone all the more pale. I don't have thyroid or thalassemia but I'm anaemic. What else can be the reason? What should I do?

Hi, dear m. Lybrate-user! thanks for your query to lybrates. In the given scenario-you needs to change your thought process and your friend circle. Be in pious atmosphere. Excessive sex thoughts and discussion cause excess sex hormones, which leads to hormonal imbalance, with activation of sebaceous glands of your skin. With more sebum, more blockage of sebaceous glands, which leads to more pimples or acne, which are blocked -hair follicles with blocked sebaceous glands in your case. Do's suggested for your case- keep face more dry. Avoid cosmetics use. Take steams 2 times a day to keep the pores of sebaceous glands for more proper drainage to reduce more acne / pimples. Take antibiotics - do stool and blood tests to fix the cause of anemia and treat it with your family doctor. Be on non-oily diet and junk food. Don't over stress with more exercise-as it would add to your sex hormones. Take more fluids. Reduce your weight by 5 kgs in next 3-6 mths time. Eat less solids and drink more of fluids. Be on fruits and vegies but in moderate quantity. In the given scenario of your case-above treatment plan is suggested for your case. It would take lot of efforts on above lines, as your body has certain limitations of your inbuilt strength and weaknesses. For any further advanced care, please contact by private question on lybrates to me. Hope this would help you to resolve this query. I am eager to help you out at earliest, with more suggestions, with more optional supportive protocols. Please send the reports urgently to my mail. And or by direct question to me at lybrate link -https://doctor. Lybrate. Com/grow/qna/private await for your mail updates soon. Good day! Dr. Savaskar m. N. Senior surgical specialist m. S.

Hello, there can be many reasons behind it like mental worries, nutritional deficiency, hereditary and anaemia. *Make a habit of 8-10 glasses of water daily. *Eat healthy and balanced food like pulses, green leafy vegetables, fresh fruits and nuts etc. *Eggs as it is loaded with essential nutrients such as proteins, vitamin b12, iron, zinc and omega 6 fatty acids in large amount. *Add more vitamin rich food to your diet. *Avoid stress and anger. *Cut down the use of hair spray, hair gel. *Take a sound sleep. Take homoeopathic medicine Lycopodium 30 (4 drops in little water) twice a day for 15 days and update with the feedback. Apply jobarandi hair oil.

I have hairfall problem. What should I do in order to prevent and reduce it. I use shampoo n conditioners rarely.
It is normal to lose about 30-80 strands of hair in a day. The common reasons behind hair fall are lack of essential nutrients in the body, improper and unhealthy dietary habits, hormonal imbalance, certain medications, dandruff, alopecia and other scalp disorders, stress and tension etc. Natural oils such as coconut, olive, jojoba, almond etc. Can be used to massage the scalp for countering hair fall. Gently massage the scalp prior to head bath twice a week. Also check hemoglobin for anaemia and thyroid status with serum tsh. Have more proteins and trace minerals like copper, zinc, selenium in diet. Start taking a hair nutrition supplement. Keep stress away with regular exercise, yoga, meditation. Get the underlying scalp condition like dandruff treated.

Hello, lybrate user frist of all I want to tell you that there is no medicine available for turning brown hairs to black or white hairs to black. The only way is to colour your hairs of your choice. But use natural colours. Second for your hair weekness oil massage is necessary for hair strengthning.

With all its moisturizing action, aloe vera is one of the most effective skin soothing agents. When you rub the gel over an itchy spot, it helps reduce the skin irritation in that area and provides quick relief from itching. Just break a leaf from the plant, cut it lengthwise using a knife and using a spoon, scoop out the jelly-like substance inside. Apply a little of this gel to the itchy area and leave it on for a few minutes.

5 Simple Tips for Great Looking Nails

5 Simple Tips for Great Looking Nails

Having beautiful nails is not necessary only for looking good, but they need to be clean for health purposes too. Just like your skin and hair, you need to take care of them so that they are healthy looking. They are exposed to environment and there are many ways by which your nails get damaged. Thus, here are a few tips that are easy to follow to keep your nails look great and keep them healthy!

  1. Care for your cuticles: During a manicure avoid trimming your cuticles. They are meant to be the barrier for bacteria and when you cut them, it may result in painful infections. With the help of a cuticle pusher, you may moisten them and push them back, but do not cut them totally. Even when you are having a conventional manicure make sure that you protect your cuticles by dabbing some olive or almond oil so that the reaction of chemicals that come in contact with your skin becomes minimum.
  2. Use moisturizer: Even your nails need to be moisturized and hence while you rub lotion on your hands put some of it on your nail and cuticles too. By using hand wash regularly you tend to dry your nail bed. Thus, after every wash, it is necessary that you use some moisturizer. If possible, use some coconut oil for rubbing on your nails. You can use cuticle cream too and rubbing that every day on your cuticles will help in keeping them moisturized.
  3. Provide nutrients to your nails: Yes, even your nails need nutrients to be healthy. Take biotin that is also referred as vitamin H. Studies reveals that it helps in preventing nails from becoming brittle. It may not grow your nails faster, but it provides the necessary support to your nails so that they do not split, crack or tear away.
  4. Wear gloves to protect your nails: Make it a practice to wear gloves while you are working with detergents, whether during dishwashing or anything else. Detergents have harsh chemicals that will leach away nutrients and moisture from your nails. Thus, it’s better to protect before than taking care later. “Prevention is better than cure” you know!
  5. Avoid using harsh polish: In nail polishes, you will find toxic chemicals like toluene, dimethyl, dibutyl phthalate, and camphor, diethyl phthalates, and formaldehyde. These nail polishes are dangerous for health. Instead try alternatives that do not contain such chemicals and are easy on your nails. Before you purchase them read the label carefully.

After following all these, if still you are not satisfied with the quality or health of your nails, it is better to get advice from an expert.

Tomatoes are an excellent solution for getting rid of dark circle, as it naturally helps to decrease the dark circles and also makes the skin soft and supple. All you need to do is mix one teaspoon of tomato juice with a teaspoon of lemon juice and apply it under your eyes. Grate some raw potato and extract the juice of the same. Now take a cotton ball and soak it in the potato juice. Close your eyes and place these cotton balls on your eyes. Make sure they cover the entire area of the dark circles under your eyes as well as the eyelids. Leave it on for 10 minutes and wash off with cold water. Cold tea bags: Another simple technique to get rid of the dark circles is using cold tea bags. Soak a tea bag preferably a chamomile or green tea bags in water. Chill it by placing it in the refrigerator for a while. Now, place them over your eyes. Use this remedy on a regular basis to see considerable difference. Cold milk: Regular use of cold milk will also decrease the dark circles and also soothes your eyes and skin. Take a cotton ball and place it in a bowl of cold milk or iced water for a while. Now apply the cotton ball making sure that it covers the entire eye with the affected area. Keep it for a while. Wash it regular water. Orange juice: Another effective home remedy to remove dark circles is orange juice. Mix some orange juice with a few drops of glycerin and apply this mixture over the dark circles. Not only will it diminish the dark circles it will also give a natural glow to your eyes. One of the main reasons that's seen for the recurrence of dark circles under eyes is because of stress, depression and a hectic lifestyle. No amount of home remedies will work if your mind isn't cool and calm. Yoga and meditation if practiced regularly will not only decrease your dark circles will also balance the body clock whilst calming your mind, body and soul.
