Iam having severe acne. What should I do? Iam a 21 year old girl. Acne persisting from 1 year.

Iam having severe acne. What should I do? Iam a 21 year old girl. Acne persisting from 1 year.
Thank you for the query. Acne in young females can occur due to hormonal changes during puberty, skin sensitivity or may be due to some hormonal imbalances. 1. Try to wash your face regularly whenever you come from outside. 2. Follow three steps of skin care: cleaning, toning and moisturising with as many natural products as possible. 3. Avoid oily and fatty food. 4. Avoid oil based creams in case your skin is oily. 5. Avoid too much of makeup and make sure to wash it before you go to sleep. 6. Drink lots of water as it keeps the skin hydrated. 7. Do not pluck the acne as it may leave the scar. 8. Take proper sleep.

Hormone level change during youth or puberty makes the scalp oily and causes dandruff. People think applying oil in hair will help them get rid of dandruff though it is not true. Oil doesn’t help remove dandruff in any way.

What should I do to get rid of the red pimple marks on my face?
You have to understand that pimples & pimples marks are basically infections in your skin pores (glands) in which sweat is forming. If you want complete cure of pimples you have to be infection free, as skin have very little blood supply, so take time to remove infections. For further assistance you can concern me privately.please upload its photo.

Hi! Hair loss is very common these days because of increased stress, nutritional deficiencies, lack of exercise and increase intake of junk food. Other causes of hair fall could be genetic, hormonal imbalances, under-active thyroid gland, and insufficient blood circulation in the scalp. There are many treatment options for hair loss including medications, home remedies and procedures such as PRP, Stem cell therapy. There are various over the counter medications available for preventing hair loss, but you need the ones most suitable to your hair to get effective results. Visit a dermatologist in your area to know which medicines you should take. Home remedies would include oiling your hair more often, include Amla/Indian gooseberry in your diet to promote new hair growth, apple cider vinegar can be effective to control hair fall and it gives soft and manageable hairs.

Does turmeric help in reducing dark spots on the face and help in treating pimples. If yes then how.

DHMS (Diploma in Homeopathic Medicine and Surgery)
Homeopath, Ludhiana
Does turmeric help in reducing dark spots on the face and help in treating pimples. If yes then how.
Turmeric helpsin reducing Pimples and their dark spots and blemishes on face.For this Turmeric is required to be mixed with honey so a to be more effective in reducing those dark spots.All you need is a bottle of honey (raw organic honey is best) and a bottle of turmeric . Use a teaspoon of turmeric powder and a tablespoon of the honey and mix them together in a small bowl or cup. After washing your face with your usual face wash, dry with a clean towel then apply the turmeric face mask. Turmeric stains fabrics so it is best to do this in the bathroom wearing an old t-shirt and be careful not to drop any of the paste on the carpet! Rub the face mask on your face using gentle circular motions, wash your hands and leave the mask on your face for about 20 minutes. The honey will most likely drip down your face so keep some tissue with you to catch any drips. After the 20 minutes is up, wash the mask off your face with warm water, do one more wash with your usual face wash and then do a final rinse with cold water to close your pores. Honey has anti-bacterial properties and turmeric has anti-inflammatory properties so together they will work to draw impurities from your skin and reduce blemishes. Your skin will feel smoother and softer immediately. Use this face mask twice a week and you will start to see that your dark marks are fading after just 3-4 weeks.

Premature Aging & Its Prevention

DDVL, MBBS
Dermatologist, Bangalore
Premature Aging & Its Prevention

Skin aging is a gradual process, but multiple factors, including stress and less sleep, expedite the aging process. Skin aging manifests itself in the form of wrinkles, sagging, discoloration and other visible effects. Such changes become more apparent as soon as one reaches late thirties or early forties, but early onsets are now very common too, which can be caused by a number of factors.

There are many ways by which skin aging can be prevented. Let us have a look at the following:

  1. Eat healthy: Having a nutritious balanced diet can make a tremendous positive impact on your skin. Consumption of food items that are rich in vitamins, minerals and other nutrients is essential. It is also important to drink lots of water and fluids to stay hydrated. Junk food and sugary drinks should be avoided as it negatively affects skin health.
  2. Avoid sun exposure: This is the most basic way of reducing the rate of skin aging and slowing down the process. While going out in the day cannot always be avoided, it is important to keep the skin covered with clothing, hats and sunglasses.
  3. Always wear sunscreen: This provides protection from the harmful rays of the sun (known as UVA and UVB). Making a habit of constantly applying sunscreen on all exposed parts of skin plays an important role in preventing skin aging. It is also necessary to use the right products, which should have an SPF rating or 30 or more.
  4. Exercise regularly: Keeping fit through regular workouts and exercise improves the circulation of blood in the body and consequently, the supply of blood and oxygen to the skin. This keeps the skin healthy and young and prevents early onset of wrinkling and aging.

There are several other ways of preventing skin aging such as avoid smoking, avoid the use of too many products and cosmetics, getting enough sleep, and always keeping skin cleansed and moisturized. Following these simple ways can effectively make your skin look younger and slow down the aging process.

Try treating the boil with a hot compress.. "Put a washcloth under hot water and lay it over the boil for five minutes, or sit in a hot bath if the boil is on your bottom," . After several days of hot compress treatments, often a boil will spontaneously rupture and drain some puslike, yellow, foul-smelling material
