Dear Doctors/ Dieticians, I am 46 years old and due to very dry and chapped skin, I have started taking Evion 400 mg, a vitamin-E capsule for the past 15 days on my own without consulting any doctor. The texture of my skin has improved considerably. The crow's feet and brow lines have diminished a lot. My question is How much of vitamin-E is enough? Or When do I stop taking these capsules?

Hello lybrate-user, please stop using those foam and capsules. Better go for natural treatment like: apply aloe vera over your scalp and massage it for 4-5 mins. This will provide nourishment to your scalp skin, hair roots, and make your hair healthy and thick too.

I have Pimples on my face. Some time they hide and then again on face. I use only facewash cream.

BAMS
Ayurveda, Ambala
I have Pimples on my face. Some time they hide and then again on face. I use only facewash cream.
These are the methods to treat pimples fastly - • Do not take stress and do exercise daily such as running, jogging and long breathing exercises. • Do YOGASANA daily. Especially do SINHASANA & SARVANGASANA daily. • Use oil free face wash and drink 7 -8 glass of water daily. • Do not touch your pimple because your finger transfer bacteria to it and make it worse. If you touch it then clean your face with water. • Mix black pepper powder in some water to make paste & apply on the pimples three times a week. • Take cucumber and papaya pulp. Mix it well and add 1 tablespoon Turmeric. Make a paste and apply it on face and leave it for 15 minutes. • Steam your face to open the pores, which in turn clear the skin. Steam your face for a couple of minutes. • Take 2 teaspoon of RAKTASHODAK SYRUP of BAIDYANATH company once a day.

Hair loss is due to dietary deficiency, hormonal imbalance, stress, strong chemical effects, styling tools, dandruff.
Remove these causes first and also follow these steps:-
1. For hair growth eat healthy diet.
2. Include protein rich diet. Soya food, protein shakes, beans, pulses are good for hair. 3. Nuts are good source of omega 3 and fiber. Its also good for hair. 4. Drink lots of water. 5. Start herbal tea or green tea. Its good for hair growth. 6. If you are non veg then its also good for hair. Protein helps in fast growth of hair and also prevent hair fall. 7. Take all dairy products. 8. You can apply curd on hair before head bath. After that wash hair with normal shampoo and apply conditioner. Onion juice is good in controlling hair fall. Take 3 spoons of onion juice and add one spoon olive oil in it. Mix this and apply on hair. Wash hair after 2-3 hrs or you can apply this at night time and wash hair next morning. If you want medicine for hair growth revert back.
