Since hair is made up mostly of protein, it is necessary that protein-rich foods are supplied to the body to keep the hair healthy. Calcium- and protein-rich foods include yogurt, cheese, tofu, eggs and soy milk.

Hi, lybrate-user I guess it's not Good idea use such cream for undereye skin as it's very thin and sensitive. Should use antiaging or rejuvenating creams like AVARTA SPF by Dr. Reddy's daily twice for 3-6 months will definitely help in your condition.

Definitely your hair can regrow but you need to know the cause for hair fall. And treat if there is any nutritional or genetic or external factors. Oils only help in conditioning not for growth.

Pimple never pick or pop pimples with your fingers, as it can lead to infection and scarring. A dietary therapy with the right medications for pimples can also help a lot. Kojic acid (a natural skin lightener derived from mushroom extract), arbutin (also called bearberry extract), and vitamin c (ascorbic acid) are great alternative ingredients to lighten scars left by acne. Don't use vitamin e on scars. You may have heard that applying vitamin e to a scar will help it heal faster. But according to a study, applying the nutrient directly onto a scar can actually hinder its healing, if you want medicine than, I will prescibe, like daily apply night microbenz cream daytime use ahaglo facewash.
