Hello lybrate-user It seems to be Tan. Tan refers to the skin darkening due to exposure to the UV radiation of the sun In many regions, tanning is often done intentionally by sun bathing or other artificial methods Symptoms. • Darkening of the affected skin • Presence of blisters in severe cases Causes: • Sun exposure facilitates production of vitamin D • Excessive sun exposure can cause: Sunburn Weak immune system • Exposure to the sun damages melanin leading to brief skin darkening Remedies Gram Flour Gram flour is very useful in treating a sun tan as it helps remove dead skin cells and leaves your skin bright and young. You can use the gram flour powder available in MARKET or make a paste of whole green gram. Mix the gram flour in water and rub it all over the affected skin area. Wait 20 minutes before washing if off with water. Do this twice a week for a few months. For best results, use rose water instead of plain water. You can also mix some lime juice and yogurt into the paste. 6. Cucumber Cucumber juice also helps reduce a sun tan. Cucumbers have a cooling effect that soothes the skin and helps eliminate a suntan. The vitamin C in cucumbers also will help keep the skin well moisturised. Mix two tablespoons of fresh cucumber juice and one tablespoon of lime juice. Add a pinch of turmeric to it. Mix it well and apply it on the affected skin. Leave it for 30 minutes and then wash it off with water. Can also rub freshly cut slices of cucumber on your skin. 7. Milk Milk or milk cream can also be used for treating sun tanned skin. Put a small amount of milk in a bowl and add a pinch of turmeric and some lemon juice. Apply this solution on the affected areas and allow it to dry completely. Then wash it off with water. This will give you an instant relief from a sun tan. You can also soak a pinch of saffron in fresh milk cream overnight. In the morning, stir it well and apply it on the affected skin areas. This will lighten your complexion and make your skin glow. 8. Sandalwood Sandalwood is a common ingredient in many beauty products. It can also be used for removing a sun tan due to its skin lightening and anti-ageing properties. So, it cleanses your skin and helps you maintain a glowing complexion. Mix equal amounts of sandalwood powder and pure turmeric powder. Add some rose water to make a thick paste. Apply the paste on the affected areas and leave it on for 30 minutes or until it dries. Wash it offusing cold water. Do this twice a week. Can also mix sandalwood powder with coconut OIL and almond oil to make a paste to apply on the affected areas. 9. Almond A paste made from almonds will cleanse, scrub and lighten your skin tone. Soak five to six almonds in water overnight. In the morning, blend the almonds with some milk to make a paste. Before bed, apply this paste on the affected areas and leave it on overnight. In the morning, wash it off with cold water. Do this daily for the first 15 days and then repeat it twice a week. 10. Oatmeal Powder Oatmeal has skin-soothing properties and also works as a wonderful exfoliant to cleanse the pores. Thus, oatmeal powder can be used in a couple of ways to reduce a sun tan. Prepare a mixture of oatmeal powder and buttermilk. Rub it onto the tanned areas. The oats will help ex foliate the skin, and the buttermilk will soothe the skin. Can also make a paste with oatmeal powder, ground almonds, ground dried orange peel and milk. Apply the paste on the affected areas and leave it on for 30 minutes. Then wash it off with cold water. Can use these remedies to help reduce sun tanned skin. Be sure also to protect your skin from sun exposure. Tips To Prevent Sun Tan: 1. Cover your hands properly before stepping out in the sun to avoid direct impact. 2. If you can’t cover them, then apply a good sunscreen to keep the skin protected. Apply a sunscreen with at least SPF 30 liberally and half an hour before sun exposure. If you skip sunscreen because you sweat a lot, look for a ‘non-comedogenic’ one as this will not clog your pores. 3. Drink lots of water. This helps you to keep your skin hydrated from inside out, thus reducing the risk of the skin drying. It increases the cell turnover and lets your skin rejuvenate and renew itself. 4. Moisturise your hands, that is, hydrate your skin externally too by applying a moisturiser that contains natural fruit acids on a regular basis. This will aid tan removal from the skin.

Homoeopathic cream ANTIMARKS CREAM ( BIOVALLEY) Apply twice daily in circular fashion Lemon Juice A quick and easy solution is lemon juice. Lemons have vitamin C that can lighten dark spots on your face. It’s easy to apply. 1. Put some fresh lemon juice on a cotton ball and rub it directly on the affected skin area. 2. Allow it to dry and then wash it off with plain water. 3. Continue applying this dark spot removal home remedy for at least two weeks to get the desired result. If you have delicate or sensitive skin, you can dilute the lemon juice with plain water, rosewater, or honey. You can also use lime juice to get rid of black spots, applying it in the same manner as described above. 2. Buttermilk Buttermilk is also beneficial in getting rid of dark spots. Like lemon juice, it also helps fade blemishes and black spots but without causing burning sensation. 1. Take four teaspoons of buttermilk. 2. Add two teaspoons of fresh tomato juice. 3. Mix the two ingredients (both have excellent bleaching properties) and then apply. 4. Wash it off after 15 minutes. The lactic acid in milk too, will gradually reduce skin pigmentation, and brighten and tone your overall skin complexion. So, if you do not have buttermilk, simply apply soak a cotton ball in milk and dab it directly on your spots. Leave it on for about 10 minutes and then wash it off Put milk on a cotton ball and dab it directly on your spots. Repeat this procedure twice daily for four to five weeks. You can also prepare a solution by mixing milk and honey and apply the solution to your dark spots, leaving it on for 10 minutes. 4. Oats Oatmeal powder is considered good for skin exfoliation. Hence, you can apply an oatmeal mask on your face and neck to remove dead skin and black spots. 1. Grind half a cup of rolled oats. 2. Add three to four tablespoons of lemon juice to make a paste. 3. Scrub it on your skin and wash it off with warm water when it dries. If it becomes messy, use a clean cloth soaked in warm water to remove the mask. Follow this treatment once or twice a week.

It depends you have to treat the primary cause. If your stress is primary then may be weight gain, hair fall is the result of that for which you should consult psychiatrist. If there is no weight gain. Hair fall and its the sole reason for stress you should consult endocrinologist. Eat well- lots of nuts and dry fruits, green leafy vegetables and raw fruits. Drink plenty of water. Start exercising daily. All the best. Consult for any query.

Usually because of sun exposure, but if darkness is patchy on the face also and not uniform, then we need to evaluate internal or hormonal causes. Treatment of the cause will help both internal and external treatment may be required.

Unless you r not firm & you don't loss your temptation to eat junk you can't gain anything understand very well even though best of the doctors will give you best advise. Avoid all oily spicy stuffs nonveg at all. Drink more liquids have more green leafy veg fiber content fruits curd for better digestion mor walk for 30 min yoga for 20 min early mor light exercises for 30 min. Avoid smoking if doing keep weight chart for every 15 days. Consult after 1 month if still firm in doing all things & not getting results dear thanks regards.

The most common cause is too much pigment in the eye area'the pigment shows through the skin under the eyes because it's so thin. Blood vessels under the eye can show as a bluish black shadow and ageing skin can sag, throwing shadows under the eye. Too much sun exposure can make the condition worse because it leads to skin wrinkles. Always use a high factor sunscreen when you're going out in the sun, especially on the face and avoid going out in the heat of the day without a hat and sunglasses. The condition can also be worsened by poor diet, too much alcohol consumption, smoking or even underlying medical conditions. Constant rubbing of irritated eyes can also damage the skin. If too much pigment is causing the problem, skin lightening creams and retinoids are useful. Shallow skin lasers treatments and micro abrasion techniques are also available which can reduce the dark patches considerably. Applying chilled cucumber slices straight out of the fridge are also beneficial. This will help to reduce puffiness and constrict blood vessels in the area. Keep the cucumber on your eyes for 15 minutes for full effect.

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.

I am 24 years old. I have black marks on my fore head and a bit on my both cheeks. I tried a lot to remove them but no use. I did not use any tubes for removing it. And also I stopped using acne soaps 4 months ago and I am using only gram flour and green gram flour to wash my face. I apply rose petals mixed with rose water, red sandalwood powder and honey daily since two months. Sometimes I feel its increasing and sometimes I feel its getting cure. Please suggest me a homely remedy to remove those black marks as soon as possible.
