Hello Thanks for the query. First of all you should know what glutathione is. It is an anti oxidant which captures free radicals and reduces skin pigmentation. Any drug has side effects and it holds true for glutathione too. it is been widely used in market as skin whitening cream and shows some improvement too. The side effects are not much and can be used safely but the effect will last only till the time you take the medicine. Once you stop skin color will revert back. Let me know if you have any other doubts. Thank you

Home Remedies For Fair Skin in Hindi - त्वचा गोरी करने के उपाय

Home Remedies For Fair Skin in Hindi - त्वचा गोरी करने के उपाय

एक हल्का रंग प्राप्त करने का जुनून, महिलाओं और किशोरों में दिन प्रति दिन बढ़ रहा है। बहुत से लोग त्रुटिरहित और गोरी त्वचा प्राप्त करने के लिए कड़ी मेहनत करते हैं। लेकिन हमारे व्यस्त जीवन शैली को देखते हुए यह एक सपने की तरह लगता है। उस के ऊपर, प्रदूषण, तनाव, सूरज से हानिकारक यूवी किरणें और अनुचित आहार जैसे कई अन्य कारक आपकी त्वचा को नुकसान पहुंचा सकते हैं और आपको एक असंतुलित त्वचा टोन दे सकते हैं।
उपरोक्त कारकों मेलेनिन उत्पादन में वृद्धि का कारण हो सकता है, जो अंततः त्वचा की टोन को काला कर देता है। एक गोरी त्वचा प्राप्त करने के लिए, लोग अक्सर बाजार में उपलब्ध त्वचा चमकाने वाले उत्पादों का सहारा लेते हैं। बाजार में उपलब्ध इन कॉस्मेटिक उत्पादों में हानिकारक रसायन और योजक होते हैं जो आपकी त्वचा को स्वस्थ और चमकदार बनाने के बजाय अतिरिक्त नुकसान पहुंचाते हैं। 
 

जबकि, एक सरल त्वचा देखभाल दिनचर्या सुरक्षित और लंबी स्थायी परिणाम दोनों प्रदान कर सकती है। एक अच्छी त्वचा देखभाल दिनचर्या में शामिल है:
सफाई - त्वचा से धूल, गंदगी और तेल निकालना
छूटना - संचित मृत त्वचा को साफ़ करना
टोनिंग - खुले घावों को सिकुड़ना 
मास्क - त्वचा का रंग हल्का करने के लिए
मॉइस्चराइजिंग - त्वचा कोशिकाओं में नमी लौटना
 

त्वचा गोरी करने के उपाय
1. संतरे और दही:

आप संतरे की छाल को धूप मे सूखा सकते है, बाद में, सूखे छाल को पीस लें। एक पेस्ट बनाने के लिए दही के बराबर मात्रा के साथ इसे मिलाएं। फिर इस पेस्ट को साफ चेहरे पर लागू करें और इसे लगभग 20 मिनट तक छोड़ दें। 
2. टमाटर, दही और दलिया:
फेस पैक बनाने के लिए इन तीन वस्तुओं की बराबर मात्रा का मिश्रण करें। इसे अपने चेहरे पर लागू करें और इसे 30 मिनट के लिए छोड़ दें। फिर गुनगुने पानी से अपना चेहरा धो लें। 
3. शहद:
शहद त्वचा को गोरा करने में मदद करता है, और एक मॉइस्चराइजिंग एजेंट के रूप में भी कार्य करता है। हनी में जीवाणुरोधी गुण भी होते हैं जो उम्र के धब्बे और मुँहासे के निशान को फीका करने में मदद कर सकते हैं।
आपको बस अपने चेहरे पर शुद्ध शहद लागू करने की जरूरत है, इसे कुछ मिनट के लिए छोड़ दें और फिर इसे गर्म पानी से धो लें।
4. नींबू:
नींबू की तुलना में कोई बेहतर प्राकृतिक विरंजन एजेंट नहीं है। उनमें विटामिन सी की उच्च मात्रा नए कोशिकाओं के विकास को भी प्रोत्साहित करती है। ताजा निचोड़ा नींबू के रस में एक रूई की गेंद डुबा लें और अपने चेहरे पर इसे सीधे लागू करें। 
वैकल्पिक रूप से, एक चम्मच प्रत्येक नींबू का रस, चूर्ण दूध और शहद मिलाएं। इसे अपनी त्वचा पर लागू करें और उसे धोने से पहले 15 से 20 मिनट तक छोड़ दें।
5. एलोवेरा जेल:
एलोवेरा का जेल स्वाभाविक रूप से हाइपरप्ग्मेंटेशन कम कर देता है और रंग को हल्का और चिकना कर देता है। इसके अलावा, एलोवेरा के शीतलन प्रभाव में नए कोशिकाओं को पुनर्जन्म करने और क्षतिग्रस्त ऊतकों को फिर से बनाने में मदद मिलती है। 
एक एलोवेरा पत्ती की बाहरी परतों को काटें। मोटी, जेली जैसे पदार्थ को दबा कर निकल लें। आपकी त्वचा पर अच्छी तरह से जेल लागू करें और इसे लगभग 30 मिनट तक छोड़ दें, फिर इसे धो लें। इसे दो सप्ताह के लिए कम से कम दिन में दो बार करें।
6. पपीता:
रोजाना पपीता खाने से आपको गोरी, स्वस्थ और चमकदार त्वचा मिल सकती है। पपीता के सफाई गुण त्वचा को शुद्ध करने में मदद करता है। इसमें पपीन और अल्फा हाइड्रॉक्सी एसिड जैसे एंजाइम होते हैं, जिनमें मृत कोशिकाओं को भंग करने और अशुद्धियों को दूर करने की क्षमता होती है, जिससे त्वचा चमकदार हो जाती है।
आप इससे फेस पैक भी बना सकते हैं। अपने चेहरे पर, पपीता की त्वचा के अंदरूनी हिस्से को रगड़ें इसे सूखने दें और फिर अपने चेहरे को ठंडे पानी से धो लें।

Betnovte C is not a cream to be applied on the face. Since you have been using it for a long time donot stop immediately. Just decrease the application to once a day for a week then alternate day for a week and then stop. Even if there is a rash on the face donot go back to using Betnovate C. Use a moisturizer and sunscreen daily. Consult a dermatologist in your area if needed.

Benefits of Having Orange In Your Diet

Benefits of Having Orange In Your Diet

#1 Boosts Immunity

Oranges is an excellent source of vitamin c. A single medium-sized orange can fulfil about 72% of your daily requirement for vitamin c. Since vitamin c plays a crucial role as an antioxidant by protecting your body against the damage caused by free radicals generated in the body. It therefore reduces inflammation in immune related conditions like rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis. Although debatable, researchers suggest that vitamin c also plays an important role in strengthening immune responses of the body, protecting against recurring cold and cough or any other common infections. Here are 11 ways to include oranges in your diet.


 

#2 Helps prevent ageing of skin

There's a reason why oranges are popularly used in the beauty industry. Several beauty products including face packs, masks and creams that are available contain orange extract as a key ingredient. That's because vitamin c present in oranges also helps prevent skin damage, by eliminating free radicals. Vitamin c, being involved in synthesis of collagen, an important component to maintain skin's overall appearance and texture, prevents premature aging and wrinkling of the skin. Apart from vitamin c, oranges are packed with vitamin a that help keep the skin membranes healthy. Here are 8 fruit packs you can make at home for beautiful skin.


 

#3 Protects the eyes

Vitamin a in oranges helps keep mucus membranes in the eyes healthy. Available in the form of carotenoid compounds like lutein, beta carotene and zeaxanthin, vitamin a is protective against age-related macular degeneration, a vision-related condition that causes blindness. Besides, it also plays an important role in allowing your eyes to absorb the light. You may also read tomatoes- natural remedy for good vision.


 

#4 Help prevents heart disease

This is yet another health benefit of oranges which is attributed to its vitamin c level. Free radicals generated during various reactions taking place in the cells can trigger oxidation of cholesterol, causing the oxidised molecules to aggregate and stick to the walls of the arteries. This leads to build up of plaques that eventually block the arteries, causing heart attack, coronary artery disease or even stroke. Vitamin c in oranges takes care of these free radicals and neutralises them, thus playing a role in preventing heart disease. Besides they also contain flavonoids like hesperidin that lowers cholesterol level and prevents the arteries from getting blocked.


 

#5 Helps brain development

Folate/folic acid or vitamin b9 present in oranges promote brain development and keep the vital organ in mint condition. In fact, these nutrients also make orange a healthy fruit for pregnant woman as it prevents the baby from having neurological disorders later. Oranges also contain phytonutrients called polyphenols that play a role in development of learning and memory functions of the brain.


 

#6 Helps prevent cancer

Oranges contain a compound called d – limonene that has been shown to play an important role in preventing various types of cancer like lung cancer, breast cancer, skin cancer, etc. Additionally, the antioxidants and vitamin c help promote the body’s immunity which helps in fighting cancer cells. Oranges are highly fibrous fruits, which contributes to its cancer-protecting effect. A study revealed that about 10 to 15 per cent of colon cancer cases are caused by mutations in the dna. These mutations can prevented by consuming vitamin c rich sources like oranges. Here are some other health benefits of vitamin c you should know


 

#7 Pevents constipation

Oranges are a very good source of soluble and insoluble fibre, which helps keep your stomach and intestines healthy by preventing problems like irritable bowel syndrome. The fibre content in them adds bulk to the digested food and reduces transit time of feces, preventing constipation and straining.


 

#8 Improves sperm quality

Death is inevitable, but our legacy may live on through our offspring. The antioxidants and vitamin c present in most fruits, including oranges improves the quality and motility of your sperm thus keeping you fertile. Another vitamin called folic acid also is an essential nutrient for maintaining healthy sperms that you can obtain from oranges. It also protects the sperm from genetic damage, which might lead to birth defects.


 

#9 Great for diabetics

The rich fibre content of oranges has the ability to keep a track of sugar levels in the body, preventing diabetes. It is also a good option for those who are diabetic. Also worth mentioning is that good oranges have a sweet taste, and since diabetics aren’t allowed to eat sweets or other sugary foods, they can eat oranges to tingle their taste buds.


 

#10 Prevents hair loss

Orange has high vitamin c content which is required for producing collagen which, in turn, is responsible for keeping the tissues in your hair together. Nobody likes bald patches on their head, and eating oranges can ensure that you do not have to part with your lovely hair as you grow older.

Your skin (or parts thereof) feels like it is burning and/or itching even though there isn’t any visible reason for it to be burning and/or itching, such as burn marks or dry, cracked, flaky, or broken skin. This burning itching skin sensation can be mildly noticeable, moderately bothersome, or severely problematic. The skin can be burning so much that it feels like a major sunburn even though you haven’t been in the sun. And sometimes you can scratch and scratch, even to the point of injuring the skin, yet your skin is still itching and/or very itchy. Generally, this burning and itching skin feeling doesn’t have any visible reason for it to feel that way. It appears the skin is itching and burning for no apparent reason. This burning itching skin sensation can occur anywhere on the body, such as the hands, face, feet, back, neck, lips, and scalp, to name a few. This burning itching skin sensation can come and go rarely, occur frequently, or persist indefinitely. For example, you may have severe skin burning and itching once and a while and not that often, feel it off and on, or feel the burning and itching all the time. This burning itching skin sensation may precede, accompany, or follow an escalation of other anxiety sensations and symptoms, or occur by itself. This burning itching skin sensation can precede, accompany, or follow an episode of nervousness, anxiety, fear, and elevated stress, or occur ‘out of the blue’ and for no apparent reason. This burning itching skin sensation can range in intensity from slight, to moderate, to severe. It can also come in waves, where it’s strong one moment and eases off the next. This burning itching skin sensation can change from day to day, and/or from moment to moment. All of the above combinations and variations are common. What causes the burning itching skin anxiety symptom? There can be many causes for burning itching skin. It’s best to discuss this symptom with your doctor to rule out all other causes. NOTE: Allergic reactions and adverse reactions to medications are also common causes of burning and itching skin sensations. Be sure to discuss this symptom with your doctor to rule out those potential causes. If your burning and itching skin sensation has been attributed to anxiety and stress, behaving apprehensively (worrying, fretting, being anxious) causes the body to activate the stress response, which brings about specific physiological, psychological, and emotional changes in the body to enhance the body’s ability to deal with a threat—to either fight with or flee from it. Due to the nature of these changes, the stress response is often referred to as the fight or flight response. Due to the extent of changes the stress response brings about, stress responses stress the body, and especially the nervous system. The nervous system is responsible for sending and receiving sensory information to and from the brain, including sending and receiving sensory information from the nerve endings in the skin. When the body isn’t overly stressed, the nervous system and sensory organs perform normally. But when the body becomes overly stressed from too frequent and/or dramatic stress responses (which we call stress-response hyperstimulation), the body, nervous system, and sensory organs can ‘misbehave’ and cause a wide range of nervous system and sensory symptoms, such as exhibiting a burning and itching skin sensation. Because anxiety and stress caused burning and itching skin sensations are only related to elevated stress and not some other medical condition, they aren’t harmful. Therefore, this burning and itching feeling isn’t a reason for concern.

Rubella is a contagious disease caused by a virus. It is also called German measles, but it is caused by a different virus than measles. Most people who get rubella usually have mild illness, with symptoms that can include a low-grade fever, sore throat, and a rash that starts on the face and spreads to the rest of the body. Some people may also have a headache, pink eye, and general discomfort before the rash appears. Rubella can cause a miscarriage or serious birth defects in an unborn baby if a woman is infected while she is pregnant. Rubella can be prevented with MMR vaccine. This protects against three diseases: measles, mumps, and rubella. CDC recommends children get two doses of MMR vaccine, starting with the first dose at 12 through 15 months of age, and the second dose at 4 through 6 years of age. Teens and adults also should also be up to date on their MMR vaccination.MMR vaccine is very safe and effective. One dose of the MMR vaccine is about 97% effective at preventing rubella.Children may also get MMRV vaccine, which protects against measles, mumps, rubella, and varicella (chickenpox). This vaccine is only licensed for use in children who are 12 months through 12 years of age. Symptoms of allergic reaction are Difficulty in breathing or swallowing hives itching, especially of feet or hands reddening of skin, especially around ears swelling of eyes, face, or inside of nose unusual tiredness or weakness (sudden and severe) Severity: Moderate If any of the following side effects occur while taking rubella virus vaccine, check with your doctor or nurse as soon as possible: Less common: Pain or tenderness of eyes Rare Bruising or purple spots on skin confusion convulsions (seizures) headache (severe or continuing) pain, numbness, or tingling of hands, arms, legs, or feet stiff neck unusual irritability vomiting Minor Side Effects Some rubella virus vaccine side effects may not need any medical attention. As your body gets used to the medicine these side effects may disappear. Your health care professional may be able to help you prevent or reduce these side effects, but do check with them if any of the following side effects continue, or if you are concerned about them: More common: Burning or stinging at place of injection skin rash swelling of glands in neck Less common: Aches or pain in joints headache (mild), sore throat, runny nose, or fever itching, swelling, redness, tenderness, or hard lump at place of injection nausea vague feeling of bodily discomfort The above side effects (especially aches or pain in joints) are more likely to occur in adults, particularly women. Some of the above side effects may not occur until 1 to 4 weeks after immunization and usually last less than 1 week. Aches or pain in joints may not occur until 1 to 10 weeks after immunization, and usually lasts less than 1 week. Check with your doctor if this side effect continues or is bothersome.

Everyone has a favourite face cream or treatment, but beautiful skin starts with nourishment from within. Older cells are constantly shed and replaced by younger ones and a steady supply of micronutrients is essential to support this rapid growth. Eat the correct balance of foods and you'll feed your skin the vital nutrients it needs to help it stay soft, supple and blemish-free. Eat your five-a-day Fruit and vegetables contain powerful antioxidants that help to protect skin from the cellular damage caused by free radicals. Free radicals are caused by smoking, pollution and sunlight and can cause wrinkling and age spots. Eat a rainbow of colourful fruit and vegetables and aim for at least five portions a day. Betacarotene, found in pumpkin, carrots and sweet potatoes, and lutein, found in kale, papaya and spinach are potent antioxidants, important for normal skin cell development and healthy skin tone. Vitamin C Vitamin C is also a super antioxidant. It is needed for a strong immune system, radiant skin and helps blemishes heal properly. The best sources are blackcurrants, blueberries, broccoli, guava, kiwi fruits, oranges, papaya, strawberries and sweet potatoes. They all help to produce collagen that strengthens the capillaries that supply the skin. Cut out crash diets Repeatedly losing and regaining weight can take its toll on your skin, causing sagging, wrinkles and stretch marks. Crash diets are often short in essential vitamins too. Over long periods of time this type of dieting will reflect on your skin. Stock up on selenium Selenium is a powerful antioxidant. It works alongside other antioxidants such as vitamins E and C and is essential for the immune system. Studies suggest that a selenium-rich diet can help to protect against skin cancer, sun damage and age spots. One way to boost your intake is to eat Brazil nuts. Just four nuts will provide the recommended daily amount (RDA). Mix Brazil nuts with other seeds rich in vitamin E as a snack or salad sprinkle. Other good sources are fish, shellfish, eggs, wheatgerm, tomatoes and broccoli. Vitamin E Vitamin E protects skin from oxidative (cell) damage and supports healthy skin growth. Foods high in vitamin E include almonds, avocado, hazelnuts, pine nuts and sunflower and corn oils. Drink up Skin needs moisture to stay flexible. Even mild dehydration will cause your skin to look dry, tired and slightly grey. Drink six to eight glasses of water a day - all fluids count towards your daily allowance, but water is the best. If you work in an office, keep a large bottle of water on your desk to remind you to drink. Herbal, caffeine-free teas are good too. Try to avoid smoking and excessive alcohol consumption, both can age the skin. Don't be afraid of fat Monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats - the types found in avocados, fish, nuts and seeds - provide essential fatty acids which act as a natural moisturiser for your skin, keeping it supple. These fats also come packaged with a healthy dose of vitamin E (a vitamin many of us lack), which will help protect against free radical damage. Eat more phyto-estrogens Phyto-estrogens are natural chemicals found in plant foods (phyto meaning plant). They have a similar structure to the female sex hormone oestrogen and have been found to help keep our natural hormones in balance. There are different types, some are found in soya bean products (isoflavones), whereas others are found in the fibre of wholegrains, fruit, vegetables and flax seeds (lignans). Include phyto-estrogen rich soya, wholegrains, fruits and vegetables as part of a balanced diet. Opt for omega-3 Make sure you get enough omega-3 and omega-6 fats. These are essential fatty acids which mean they cannot be made in the body and must be obtained through the diet. You will find omega-3s in oily fish and plant sources such as flaxseed oil, linseeds, walnut and rapeseed oil. Omega-3 fats encourage the body to produce anti-inflammatory compounds, which can help skin, particularly inflammatory skin conditions such as eczema and psorasis. Go for low-GI carbs Eat plenty of beans, pulses, porridge and other slow-releasing carbohydrates. These release sugar into the blood stream gradually, providing you with a steady supply of energy and leaving you feeling satisfied for longer and therefore less likely to snack. Avoid high GI carbohydrates like biscuits and sugary drinks, as they lead to production of insulin, which may damage collagen and accelerate wrinkles. Don't forget zinc Zinc is involved in the normal functioning of the sebaceous glands in the skin (which produce oil) and helps to repair skin damage and keep skin soft and supple. Zinc-rich foods include fish, lean red meat, wholegrains, poultry, nuts, seeds and shellfish.

Meantime, you can start using Bioforce's Blooume - 55 ointment (for clear skin) twice daily and also use Bakson's Suncare Sunscreen, 20-30 minutes before stepping out under the sun.
