What to do for making mah skin glow and pimples free.
And making mah hair soft and shiny.
Dear Lybrate user Drinking lots of water - atleast 2 litres everyday - everyday during periods helps in maintaining the water level in your body and fastens the digestive process while taking care of the hormonal changes. Hair oil massage: Proper hair and scalp massage will increase blood flow to the hair follicles, condition the scalp, and enhance the strength of your hair’s roots. It will also promote relaxation and reduce feelings of stress. You can use hair oils like coconut or almond oil, olive oil, castor oil, amla oil, or others. Add a few drops of rosemary essential oil to the base oil for better and faster results. Potato Water: Lack of proper vitamins may cause to have a dry and delicate hair. Potato, can give you longer and thicker hair growth. Use potato water for rinsing the hair. After boiling the potatoes in water, let the water gets cool for some time and use that water for your hair after shampooing. Just rinse your hair with potato water.#11; Spinach and lettuce juice is thought to help with hair growth. Drink once in day this juice for healthy hair growth. Thanks.

Hello, Do follow CTMP, i.e., cleansing, toning, moisturising and protection (apply liberally sunscreen with SPF-30 – a thick layer of Bakson's Suncare cream may be, 20-30 minutes before going out daily and repeat it's application after every 3-4hrs.) after washing your face daily; use the products as per your skin type. This will change the skin texture and skin tone. In case you do have tanning, apply honey with a dash of lime on your face. Eat right and healthy that too on time, relieve your stress/ tensions, sleep well, stop smoking, as this restricts blood flow to your face and leaves you with a greyish complexion. lead a healthy lifestyle! Apart from this, avoid anger, anxiety, fear which increases stress hormone in the body and subsequently makes your complexion darker! (Hormonal imbalances also plays a major role). If the dull and dark skin tone is due to any underlying ailment or diseases, need to look into the matter. Diet: -Increase your Vitamin C intake (lemon,orange,gooseberry,etc.Fruits/juices, strawberries, sweet peppers, tomatoes, cantaloupe, and green peas). - Eat more Vitamin A (nonfat milk, oysters, and egg yolks, carrots, watermelon, papaya, tomatoes, or other dark colored produce) . If you feel your skin is weak or not tight enough, that usually suggests a lack of Vitamin A. Medicine: You can also use homoeopathic cream - Medicynth's Whitch Hazel daily at night. Home remedies: Apply fresh-squeezed lemon juice to your entire face and neck. Leave it on for 10 minutes and then wash it off with lukewarm water. After this, rub cucumber slices on your skin to soften and moisturize it. Do this daily or every other day. Another option is squeeze the juice of one-half lemon and mix one to two tablespoons of raw honey in it. Apply it on your face, leave it on for 15 to 20 minutes and then rinse it off. To exfoliate your skin, mix two teaspoons each of lemon juice and sugar. Apply the mixture on your face, neck and hands. Scrub in a circular motion and leave it on for 10 minutes. Then rinse it off with lukewarm water. Follow this remedy once a week to enjoy glowing skin.

Here are symptoms,types and treatment of Hysterectomy

Good morning everybody. I’m Dr. Pulkit Nandwani. I’m a gynecologist and a laparoscopic surgeon I would like to explain to you regarding Hysterectomy. If you have been decided to undergo a hysterectomy by a doctor for whatever reason it can be due to heavy bleeding, if you are having fibroids or there’s any type of cancer. Hysterectomy is usually the mode of answer.

Now understanding the procedure and how to go about it would be less stressful. There are three types of hysterectomy that we usually do.

Three ways of doing a hysterectomy.

  • One is the open method which is known as abdominal hysterectomy.
  • Secondly it is Vaginal.
  • Thirdly it is laparoscopic or the minimally invasive one.

Now in open abdominal hysterectomy we usually give 15 to 20 centimeter cut in the lower part of the abdomen and the bikini line. This cut is throughout inserted in the abdomen and via this cut the uterus is removed to the attachments and uterus is taken out by this cut only. Because of the big amount of cut they might be some pain after this hysterectomy.

Second form is Vaginal Hysterectomy in which there is no incision on the abdomen and usually the uterus is removed via only through the vagina. But this hysterectomy might have some limitations like all the patients cannot undergo a vaginal hysterectomy with very big size uterus, previous multiple surgical. In those patients, vaginal hysterectomy becomes a limitation.

The third is the laparoscopic or the minimally invasive hysterectomy. This hysterectomy is a minimally-invasive one in which the abdomen is not open only three to four small, 5 to 1 centimeter keyhole incisions are made in your abdomen below the navel. Through these small keyhole incisions specialized instruments are inserted and the uterus is dissected from all its attachment via these specialized instruments and throughout the procedure the surgeon is seeing a camera and which with visualizes your internal organs and the whole operation is done. This is known as the uterus is usually moved by the vagina, this is known as minimally invasive total laparoscopic hysterectomy.

There are many advantages of laparoscopic hysterectomy. Because of the small keyhole incisions throughout the surgery the bleeding is very less. The rate of infection is very less. We don’t have to close those incisions much. Postoperatively the pain you experience will be very light as compared to abdominal hysterectomy. Because of less discomfort in the abdomen you’re able to mobilize earlier. You able to walk early and recovery becomes faster. You will able to be discharged early from the hospital and you can even join your job back in a matter of one to two weeks.

Even for a next operation anytime, addition formation in which internal organs get stuck to each other after surgery is minimal following a laparoscopic surgery as compared to an open surgery because our hands do not touch the in organs anytime. There is no addition formation of the organs and they remain as such as if no surgery has been done.

If you want any further clarification on any laparoscopic surgery you can consult be on lybrate by audio or even video conferencing. Thank you.

How to Cure and Maintain Acne Prone Skin

FRGUHS, DDVL, MBBS
Dermatologist, Bangalore
How to Cure and Maintain Acne Prone Skin

Acne can be a major chronic issue with many people, especially women. Ugly breakouts will cause you to become conscious about your skin and affect your confidence. While you may try a whole range of products to cure and to keep your skin free of acne, there are certain basic tips which you can implement with great success. (Learn more to keep your skin healthy)

 

Don't depend on exfoliation and don't do too much of it: While light exfoliation is quite good for the skin, but too much, too regular and too hard scrubbing will only result in the skin's oil glands becoming over active. This in turn may encourage the growth of even more acne. Use your fingers to clean your skin lightly instead of using abrasive products.

Get products which are primarily salicylic acid based: This acid is a naturally occurring light chemical, which is very good at cleansing skin. Thus look for products, which have high levels of this ingredient. It can easily remove all the dead skin cells that may close the pores of your skin while retaining the moisture within.

Stop using products that may dehydrate your skin: Many alcohol based astringents and other products meant to take out oil from your skin to reduce acne, instead end up causing it. This is because if the skin is too dehydrated, it will over produce oil to keep it hydrated. Use products, which will not dehydrate your skin. After washes, ensure that you moisturize your skin with a light moisturizer even while the skin is damp to ensure natural balanced levels of moisture.

Avoid the tendency or the temptation to touch your face: Your hands are a reservoir of oil and dirt in microscopic levels as you use them to do a multitude of things throughout the day. You may have a subconscious habit of touching your face multiple times throughout the day. This will cause all the oil and grime to deposit on your face, which will only lead to acne. Thus develop the habit of not touching your face too much.

Be careful with the type of makeup you use: Understand, which products work better with your skin. There are certain products, which will immediately cause problems on your skin and thus you should avoid them. Certain materials such titanium oxide, silica and zinc oxide are known to be good bases for makeup products. These ingredients absorb excess oil and don't clog pores. Try switching and stick to the ones that cause the least skin problems.

I have a black spots and I have a skin sensitivity and which virus causes this? Please help me.
This is not caused by a virus. Black spots can be reduced with a good diet - fresh fruits one bowl and boiled vegetables one bowl daily will work well. Apply almond oil externally to reduce black spots as far as skin sensitivity is concerned, it can be managed very well by taking amla juice - 5ml diluted with a cup of warm water everyday in the mornings.

One of the most important ways to take care of your skin is to protect it from the sun. A healthy diet can help you look and feel your best. Eat plenty of fruits, vegetables, whole grains and lean proteins. The association between diet and acne isn't clear but some research suggests that a diet rich in vitamin c and low in unhealthy fats and processed or refined carbohydrates might promote younger looking skin. I am a registered dietitian and a doctor who will help you in your skin problems reply back for private consultation.

Treatment Options for Acne Scar Removal

MD, D.V.D, MBBS
Dermatologist, Mumbai
Treatment Options for Acne Scar Removal

Acne scars look bad and often interfere with your bright looks, as they make you feel embarrassed and unfresh. You use more makeup to cover them or avoid going out in order to hide them. However, instead of hiding your face or the scars, you may try these treatment options to remove the scars instead and feel brighter and better.

  1. Chemical peels: This method involves the application of a chemical peel on the skin. The acid in it removes the superficial skin layer to improve the appearance of the scar. This works well on lighter scars, and a licensed medical practitioner, nurse or cosmetologist can do this procedure.
  2. Dermabrasion and Microdermabrasion: This technique involves using a high speed brush on the skin to polish the portion of the scar and make that part of the skin even, so that the scar looks lighter. If your skin doctor feels that you don't need serious dermabrasion, then he may use a microdermabrasion where small crystals are sprayed onto the skin surface to remove the skin cells over the scar and improve appearance.
  3. Fillers: Fillers are used on the skin which gets depressed due to the acne or scars. There are some binding materials like collagen or Hyaluronic acid, which can be injected through an injection, and this keeps the skin smooth, scar free and elevated for some time after which the injection has to be repeated. This has to be a continuous treatment until your skin starts to appear normal again.
  4. Retinoid creams: The retinoid creams are especially beneficial on scars if applied patiently for a prolonged period. These creams come with little side effects like burning, drying or peeling of the skin, but over a medium to long term application, all scars do get removed.
  5. Laser treatment: A combination of a few types of laser treatments or just one type depending on the acne stage or redness is used. This smoothens the skin and removes the acne scars by removing skin cells from the area.
  6. Punch Excisions and Skin grafting: This is a surgical technique. The acne scar can be removed by cutting a portion of the skin, and removing it. Normally, this procedure is combined with skin grafting, where the hole created by the acne is filled up either through stitches, or through grafting of the skin. This is actually the most invasive process to remove scars and only done when you have a serious, permanent and stubborn scar which can't be effectively removed by other techniques.

Hi, better consult your concern dermatologist only as he has already recommended you. In my opinion, use those brand's products which suits to your skin - it may be herbal (himalaya's, patanjali's, jiva's, etc.) or else can use chemical-based superior quality (amway's, oriflame's, avon's, maybellene's, etc.). But the best would be to use rosewater as a toner which has got cooling effect on your skin and gives your skin a cooling effect.

Hello, Apply Homoeopathic medicine – Thiosinaminum Q few drops mixed in a glycerin solution on scars that are visible (as it is less greasy, so is more easily absorbed into the skin). Also take Causticum 200 orally twice daily for 4 weeks. For glowing face: Management: Include healthy, nutritious food, doing daily yoga or some kind of exercises. All these automatically reflects glow on your face. Yes, the colour which is inherited from your parents/ ancestors, cannot be changed, but you can try to get glow on your face! Daily Regime: Apart from these, you do follow CTMP, i.e. Cleansing, toning, moisturising and protection (apply liberally sunscreen with SPF-30 – a thick layer of Bakson's Suncare cream may be, 20-30 minutes before going out daily and repeat it's application after every 3-4 hrs.) after washing your face daily; use the products as per your skin type. This will change the skin texture and skin tone. In case you do have tanning, apply honey with a dash of lime on your face. Eat right and healthy that too on time, relieve your stress/ tensions, sleep well, stop smoking, as this restricts blood flow to your face and leaves you with a greyish complexion. Lead a healthy lifestyle! Apart from this, avoid anger, anxiety, fear which increases stress hormone in the body and subsequently makes your complexion darker! (Hormonal imbalances also plays a major role). If the dull and dark skin tone is due to any underlying ailment or diseases, need to look into the matter. Diet: -Increase your Vitamin C intake (lemon, orange,gooseberry, etc.Fruits/juices, strawberries, sweet peppers, tomatoes, can notaloupe, and green peas). - Eat more Vitamin A (nonfat milk, oysters, and egg yolks, carrots, watermelon, papaya, tomatoes, or other dark colored produce) . If you feel your skin is weak or not tight enough, that usually suggests a lack of Vitamin A. Medicine: Use homoeopathic cream - Medicynth's Whitch Hazel or Bakson’s Fairness cream daily at night.
