Apple is a miracle fruit for the skin.The alpha hydroxy acids or AHA’s present in apples improves skin color and elasticity of the skin.Soak peeled apple slices in milk for 20 minutes and then blend to form a creamy paste.Place in the freezer for 10 minutes, and then mix a tsp of lemon juice, apply all over your face and neck.Rinse off after 15 minutes with cool water and massage an ice cube.The skin looks baby soft, smooth with a rosy white glow.Follow this for a week to get fair skin naturally. or All the natural ingredients (Tretinoin, Hydroquinone and Cortisone) inlcuded in Melamet have only one goal: to improve your skin tone. Tretinoin helps prevent and treat acne and wrinkles by peeling off dead skin cells. Hydroquinone is the skin lightener agent in this equation that improves the overall tone of your skin. Cortisone is an anti-allergy ingredient that reduces inflammation and/or itching.' How to Use: Use the Melamet Cream just before bedtime. Wash it off in the morning, and apply some sunscreen if you intend to go outdoors. Failure to do so will cause significant damage and even result in your skin turning black.

These spots result from high amounts of skin-darkening melanin in certain areas of your skin. This melanin can be set off by triggers from inside and outside your body. This melanin condition is called hyperpigmentation. The triggers might include sun exposure, melasma, and skin inflammation. Climate may also cause such pigmentation. The skin around your mouth is drier during cold season. Some people tend to wet that area with their saliva, which can darken the skin. If you haven't been out in the sun much, you may be over-wetting the area around your mouth. Know that the skin around your mouth is thin. This can lead to discoloration, dry skin, and mouth wrinkles. These problems do not go deep into the skin, so you will probably not need an invasive treatment. You may be able to easily get rid of your discoloration by treating or exfoliating the skin. Treatment involves Daily exfoliation with a mild facial exfoliant, you may use kojic acid for a while. See a dermatologist. If you aren't sure what's causing the dark area around your mouth, a dermatologist may be able to diagnose the problem and suggest a treatment.

Precautions for care of your hair *take nutritious healthy food *have regular vigorous physical exercise so that blood circulation reaches hair follicles and nourishes the hair. *avoid mental stress and smoking and such unhealthy habits. *use warm or cold water for bath and not very hot water. * hard water is harmful. Boiling will reduce hardness. * when the hair is wet, it is weaker and don't rub too much with towel. * use wide toothed comb so that there is no pulling pressure on the hair. *your usual hair dye has large doses of ammonia, which changes hair texture, dries out the scalp and almost leads to hair fall. Natural products like shikakai and amla are better than chemical compositions of manufactured shampoos. *hair fall, dandruff and tendency for gray hair are dependent on several factors. We have good treatment in homoeopathy without causing adverse effects. These medicines are given internally, promote healthy growth of hair and prevent hair fall. Take homoeopathic medicine acid phos 30 twice daily and give feedback after 20 days.

I have many pores on my face which is left by pimples. please help to make it cure or disappear.
The eruption of pimples, pores and oily skin/ face are due to excessive sebum secreted by sebaceous glands and hair follicles especially on the face.. Precautions- * Don't scratch or pinch your pimples This will cause more damage and scars. . * Avoid fried and oily foods. * Prefer fruits and green vegetables. * When you apply any cream, sun screen and the like, clean your face at the earliest, so that there will be no adverse action of the chemicals on the delicate skin of face. Your skin ?breaths? through its pores which are not to be closed for long. .We have good treatment in Homoeopathy without causing adverse effects. The medicines work internally, tackle the root of the problem unlike face wash which is a surface treatment..

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.

Eat things rich in Vitamin C like amla and oranges. 10.Drink lots of water to flush out toxins from the body.

चेहरे की झाइयाँ दूर करने के घरेलू उपचार

चेहरे की झाइयाँ दूर करने के घरेलू उपचार


झाइयाँ अक्सर बढ़ती उम्र के साथ बढ़ती जाती हैं, जो देखने में अच्छी नहीं लगती हैं। तेज धूप के कारण और शारीरिक स्वास्थ्य ठीक न होने के कारण भी चेहरे पर झाइयाँ पड़ जाती हैं। झाइयों की समस्या से घरेलू उपचार द्वारा आसानी से छुटकारा पाया जा सकता है।झाइयों को समाप्त करने के कुछ घरेलू उपाय इस प्रकार हैं-
* झाइयाँ अकसर पेट की खराबी से होती हैं या फिर अधिक तनावग्रस्त रहने से. - खुश रहें, चिंता न पालें, पानी खूब पिएँ, दिन में कम से कम एक बार नीबू निचोड़कर पानी पिएँ।
* सफेद जीरा, काला जीरा, सरसों और काला तिल बराबर मात्रा में लेकर गाय के दूध में पीसकर लेप करने या उबटन करने से झाइयाँ और चेहरे के दाग दूर हो जाते हैं।
* आलू को घिसकर चेहरे पर लगाएँ।
* कटे टमाटर को चेहरे पर रगड़ना फायदेमंद होता है।
* खीरे के रस में जैतुन के तेल की बूँद मिलाकर लगाएँ।
* केले के गुदे को चेहरे पर लगाने से झाइयाँ मिटती हैं।
* गाजर के रस में पिसी बादाम व कच्चे दूध को मिलाकर लगाएँ।
* रोजाना बादाम का तेल चेहरे पर लगाएँ।
* आधी कटोरी उड़द की दाल के पावडर में दो चम्मच गुलाबजल, एक चम्मच ग्लिसरीन व दो चम्मच बादाम रोगन मिलाकर इस लेप को चेहरे पर कुछ देर लगाकर रखें फिर हल्के गुनगुने पानी से चेहरा धो लें।
* चेहरे की झाइयाँ दूर करने के लिए आप आधा नीबू व आधा चम्मच हल्दी और दो चम्मच बेसन लें। अब इन चीजों को आपस में अच्छी तरह मिलाकर पेस्ट-सा बना लें। अब इस मिश्रण का मास्क चेहरे पर तीन या चार बार लगाए। झाइयाँ समाप्त हो जाएँगी और आपका चेहरा भी निखर जाएगा।
* चेहरे पर ताजे नीबू को मलने से भी झाइयों में लाभ होता है।
* चेहरे पर झाइयाँ तेज धूप पड़ने के कारण भी हो जाती हैं। अतः तेज धूप से जहाँ तक हो सके चेहरे को प्रभावित न होने दें।
* सेब खाने और सेब का गूदा चेहरे पर मलने से भी झाइयाँ दूर होती हैं।
* रात को नींद न आने से भी चेहरे पर झाइयाँ पड़ जाती हैं, जिन्हें दूर करने के लिए रात को सोने से पहले चेहरे को अच्छी तरह धोएँ। तदुपरांत एक चम्मच मलाई में तीन या चार बादाम पीसकर दोनों का मिश्रण बना लें, फिर इस मिश्रण को चेहरे पर लगाकर हल्के हाथों से मसाज करें और सो जाएँ। प्रातः उठकर बेसन से चेहरे को धो लें। इस प्रयोग से आपको आश्चर्यजनक लाभ होगा।
* झाइयों को समाप्त करने के लिए आप भोजन में सलाद का नियमित प्रयोग करें।
* दिन में एक गिलास गाजर का रस बिना नमक-मिर्च मिलाए पिएँ, इससे झाइयाँ समाप्त हो जाएँगी।
* ताजा टमाटर काटकर चेहरे पर हल्के हाथों से मसाज करने से थोड़े दिनों के उपरांत चेहरे की झाइयाँ कम हो जाएँगी और रंगत भी निखर जाएगी।

Hair fall can occur due to many reasons like stress, chemical damage, nutritional deficiency, enviornmental factors etc. We need to access the exact reason to start treatment. Home remedy. Take 100ml coconut oil boil 2-4 pcs of amla fruit n 8-10 curry leaves in that oil till fruit n leaves turn black. Filter and strain. Massage it on scalp with finger tips gently. Wash hair next morning with curd mixed with besan. In ready to use you can start using rishi grow hair oil at bed time (mfg. By robin herbal healthcare products. Visit www. Ayurvedahaircare. In) & wash with robin plus herbal shampoo. Use clean oil if dandruff is the reason as this oil treats it in just two applications along with reducing itching. Internal ayurvedic medicines if required will be provided after studying your bodily constitution as per ayurveda. Do it for two months and your hair fall will reduce to normal. As it's a very slow process so you can't see results in a week. Eat more of green leafy vegies and fresh seasonal fruits. Take amla powder or amla murabba/ carrot murabba twice daily. Use neem wood comb for managing hair and this should be changed regularly. Reduce your stress by yoga and meditation. Add some coconut daily in your diet. Keep water in copper vessel overnight and drink in the morning empty stomach. Avoid chinese foods and food stuffs packed in plastics. Avoid white flour (maida), excessive salt and spices. Let me know after it and I will advise accordingly.

Hi, Wash your face with Bakson's Facewash (wash your face with warm water only) and followed by CTMP, i. E. Cleansing, toning, moisturising and protection (apply liberally Sunscreen Gel with SPF-30) after washing your face daily. Prevention: -Take healthy food only and avoid unhealthy ones (although sebaceous glands are not excretory glands then as well!) as what you eat is reflected on your face! -Avoid taking unnecessary stress/ tension as it encourages secretion of stress hormone in the body as thus affects skin or any other tissue of the body. -Drink atleast 8-10 glasses of water in a day. -Take 6-8hrs. Of sound sleep everyday. -Don't use others towels, handkerchief on your face as well as never share yours. -Never ever rub your face as it damages the skin (even towel should be dab on skin softly) and break outs of acne get worsened! -Maintain hygiene, wash your face 2-3times in a day, changes the pillow covers, bed sheet daily, use cotton bed sheet only (try to sleep on your back). Home-made remedies: - Take 1 tbsp of fuller's earth (multani mitti) + a dash of lime + bit of rosewater – apply this on your face till it gets dried up, then rinse it off. - Take 1 tsp of Alum (or fitkari), make it slightly wet with water and apply this on your wet face, spread it well; let it dry and rinse it off. Alum remove your excessive moisture or oil and it also tightens the skin's tonicity.

It is mainly due to infection (mainly fungal) in your scalp skin, as skin of scalp is very little blood supply, so take time to remove infections, it comes in from of dandruff. For control on hair fall you have to control on dandruff and infection, otherwise most of the times it spread to your face and eyebrows and eyelashes also. It requires proper medicines and care.

You are suffering from androgenic alopecia or which is also called as pattern baldness. This is usually progressive throughout life unless treated. The hair progressively becomes this and is eventually lost. Now no lotion cream or oil can magically get hair over completely bald areas. The areas where some hair are still there can respond to minoxidil and finesteride. For the front part you should consider hair transplant.
