Basically the pimples are due to hormonal changes in your age. Due to changing sexual energy, your body reacts differently. Pimples are one outcome of those changes. You can stay away from masturbation from some days and use the following advice - use tea tree face wash and toner twice daily. Use aha glow face wash daily use sunscreen with spf 30 daily. Use natural face pack of multani mitti and lemon 2 times a week. You can also use apple cider vinegar with mother for 5 mins after washing your face and splash it clean with water. Most important is diet- do not eat junk, eat more vegetables and fruits especially with vitamin c.

Hair fall, dandruff and tendency for gray hair are dependent on several factors. From stress anaemia to thyroid We have good treatment in homeopathy without causing any side effects. Homoeo medicines are given internally to restore healthy growth of hair and prevent hair fall. precautions for care of your hair -take nutritious healthy high protin 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 and cooling 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.

1. Save your skin from exposure to sun as ultraviolet rays of sun can damage the skin and may burn skin’s upper layer. Excessive exposure to sun may also develop brown spots. Dark spots may appear on skin due to exposure to the sun for longer period without any protection. It is advisable that people with white or sensitive skin should avoid going out when intensity of sunrays is very high during 10 am to 4 pm in summer season. Application of sun screen at least 15-30 minutes before you go outside in the sun is very essential so that it may get sufficient time for absorption and protect your skin from UV rays of sun. Sunscreen may be reapplied after two hours to save your skin from spots or patches. In case of sweating, swimming, in humid conditions and tropical climates frequency of application of sunscreen may be increased. Homemade sunscreen made with natural products is more safe and capable of offering proper protection for the skin from developing brown/dark spots in comparison with chemical based products. 2. All of us use various skin care products to maintain healthy and younger looking skin. Some of the products are chemical based, contains preservatives and may cause allergy to your skin and develop pesky dark spots. Before using any products you must check the ingredients of the products and ensure that these products contains ingredients derived from natural plants, herbs etc. If any of the skincare products does not suit to your skin, you should stop using the same immediately. You must carry out patch test before using any new product to your skin. 3. Dark spots may also be due hormonal imbalance. Many women have been faced with this problem during or after pregnancy or while taking birth control pills. If dark spots develop due to taking any drug you should immediately contact your medical professional and dermatologist for changing the medicines or remedial measure 4. Acne is also one of the reasons of brown spot when the pimples or blackheads are picked continuously or appropriate treatment for acne is not used. To avoid spots due to this reason you should not pick the pimples and take proper treatment for acne. 5. The skin is also affected by the individual’s diet, if the body is healthy, the skin also looks good. If the body is not functioning properly, the skin becomes dehydrated, spots or discoloration will appears. To save the skin from such problems you should take balanced diet that will include all the vitamins, minerals, fats, carbohydrates, amino acids and antioxidants. To maintain healthy skin dairy products, fresh fruits and vegetables and whole grain food should also be included in your daily diet schedule. 6. Aging also comes with specific signs like wrinkles, brown spots and graying of hair etc. You can make the brown spot go away or at least diminish the frequency and their intense color by proper exfoliation with home remedies. Drinking about 2 liters of water and having balanced diet can diminish or postpone the apparition of brown spots and will diminish their size and intensity. Home remdies for skin whitening are quite effective to check, fade and cure brown and dark spots.

Hello, Open pores can be the result of lack of proper cleansing resulting in the deposit of oil, dirt or even dead skin in your pores. It is extremely important that you follow the ritual of a face clean at least once a week which includes a massage with a cream, exfoliation for the removal of dead skin cells and a face pack to close the pores opened while the process of exfoliation. This basic routine makes sure that your skin is always prepped up, cleansed and clear of impurities. - Lemons are one of the most widely used herbal remedy to shrink the open pores as they naturally tighten the skin and brighten it too. -Fruits like Papaya are best known for their exfoliation properties. Using a papaya for cleaning the face not only scrubs away all the impurities but also helps in removing black heads and other impurities of the skin. -Egg whites work as natural dryers of the skin and thus they greatly help in shrinking the pores and helping with the problem of open pores. -Another way of dealing with the problem of open pores is yoghurt. -Fuller’s earth is an excellent medium to control excessive oil and cleansing the skin gently and deeply. -Natural Astringent: there are several other natural astringents which can be used on the skin for the treatment of open pores like peach, pineapple, orange, strawberries and other citrus fruits. Apart from these, you can also use rose water and aloe vera gel for open pores.

Hello Mohit! Kindly inform me about your dietary habits. To cure Acne you need to take more of fresh fruits, increase water intake and take lots of vegetables. You have to avoid junk food, deep fried food and also excessive spicy food as that leads to free radical damage. You should also use some good face cleaning solutions to keep the skin clean and hydrated.

Many physically mature guys don't finish developing a fully adult beard until their early 20s or even later. If you're still young, remember that your beard may continue to get thicker as you get older. Many guys notice their beards growing thicker, denser and faster when they enter their 30s and 40s. Give it time. Increase the amount of protein in your diet. Protein found in meat, fish, eggs and nuts will grow facial hair faster. Take biotin daily. This dietary supplement is known to increase the growth of hair and nails, remain stress free, do not trim your beard or moustache frequently, increase your dietary intake fresh fruit and juices.

Is it fine to put coconut oil mixed with olive oil on the body daily after having a bath?
Absolutely fine. It will make your skin softer, and give you a healthy glowing skin. But if you have a oily skin, then avoid applying the oil to your face as it may cause pimples and black heads, use a water based moisturizer instead.
