My finger is injured by a stone, and it becomes black in a spot. What should I do?

Sandalwood paste is a very good natural ingredient that is an answer to your question on how to get rid of blood blisters very quickly. All you need to do is to use good quality sandalwood powder and mix it with rose water to make a thick smooth paste. Now, apply this paste to the affected area and allow the mixture to dry on the blister. Once, it gets dried, you can rinse the affected area with cold water. You need to repeat this process three to four times a day to reduce the pain and the inflammation.

It hampers the melanogenesis and is not safe to use on a longrun and accept the colour you have it since birth and remember it's your nature that matters the most.

If its due to weather changes, you should observe which season is more inconvenient for u. So that accordingly you have to take measures like. If you feel skin is sensitive to sun, you should take precautionary measures like applying sunscreen lotion before you go out, washing vth cold water immediately after you com home. etc. If its in winter, you have to go for a moisturizer. In the same way.

Facial Scrubs - Is Too Much Too Bad?

MBBS, Diploma in Trichology - Cosmetology, Diploma in Aesthetic Medicine, Cosmetic Dermatology

Facial Scrubs - Is Too Much Too Bad?

Everybody is particular about how they look. Skin care has assumed great importance compared to a couple of decades ago. With skin care assuming so much, everybody talks of cleansing, scrubbing, toning, moisturising, what not! What we need to realise is that anything in excess is bad. Talking of scrubbing, it has been promoted as the perfect way to remove dead cells from the skin and keep the skin looking young and radiant. After scrubbing, the skin that is left behind is brand-new with fresh cells from the underlying layers, which glows out. While this is the intention, there are questions to ask in terms of – what to use for scrubbing, how often, ideal products, etc.

Scrubbing can be done chemically or physically. Chemical scrubs include products like salicylic acid, glycolic acid, lactic acid, or citric acid. These remove the dried, dead cells from the top and leave a radiant, fresh skin behind.

Physical scrubs use salts, almond, apricot peel, and tiny beads of microplastics. These microbeads are not just harmful to the skin, they are also not eco-friendly. Though not visible to the naked eye, these microbeads, as the name suggests, are small, tiny plastic beads which act as a physical scrub and help in removing the top layers of the skin. They get into the water as sediments and cannot be removed. When accumulated over a period of time, there is no way to get rid of them. Many products have been banned in Australia and the USA for containing these microbeads.

Another thing to consider when scrubbing is the type of skin. While oily skin can take a little more of the scrubbing load, dry, flaky skin should not be over-scrubbed. Exfoliating agents can be used once in a while, but if you ask a dermatologist if your skin needs daily exfoliation, the answer would be a big NO. Oily skin can benefit from gel-based scrubs, while dry skin can benefit from cream-based ones. If you have sensitive skin, use a mild exfoliating agent. There are multiple products being promoted as daily scrubs which are easy on the skin, but it is best to stay away from these for regular use.

Alternatively, there are multiple regular home/kitchen products which can be used as scrubs. Gram flour, milk cream, lime juice, sugar, oatmeal, ground coffee can be used periodically to get the same scrubbing effects. What is also important to note is it is not just the face that needs the scrubbing. Surfaces with thicker skin like the knees and elbows also benefit from occasional scrubbing.

The mantra is to not overdo it, but go with moderation and get the benefits of scrubbing with a glowing, radiant skin.

It is highly unlikely for it be a cancer. But be watchfull for any increase in size or any elevation in rate of increase in size. Also please get breast examination done for reliably ruling out any problematic cause of the lump.

Hi, I want to become fair at the earliest. Some one suggested me panderm plus. Please advise.
Panderm plus is not a fairness cream. You need to institute a couple of changes to see a lot of results. Use a broad spectrum sunscreen both indoors as well as before going out. It shud b both uva and uvb protective. Always use your umbrella whether its raining or not. Use a cap or scarf or your dupatta to cover your head. Protect your eyes with a sunshade. Avoid scrubbing your face. Do not steam or sauna. If you swim, use a sunscreen prior to it and after. Don't directly spray perfumes on your body. Spray them on your clothes and wear them. Don't use deodorants or roll ons. Avoid face cosmetics for the time being. You can press powder onto your sunscreen if at all you want to use a cosmetic. Drink two litres of water everyday. Pick up carrots, papaya, pumpkin, black grapes to have everyday. These contain important antioxidants and phytonutrients which vil soften your skin. Do not stress over anything. Pray-itll distract you off your stress. You can use this do it yourself mask at home which vil give you an instant glow. Mix 1 tbsp puree each of papaya and carrot with 1 tbsp of curd and 1 tbsp of aloe vera. Apply it across your face or dull body part for ten to fifteen minutes and wash it off without soap. Use melacare plus cream twice daily.

My is face having full of black spots. Please give me suggestions to make my face clean.
Exposure to sunlight, freckles, acne and several other skin diseases are responsible for making the skin look dull and discolored. Homoeopathy not only helps in controlling excess oil secretion by the sebaceous glands but provides a clear and fair skin removing all such tendencies which lead to dull skin.Along with this a diet rich in vegetables and whole fruits, plenty of water, regular exercise will also help You can easily take an online consultation for further treatment guidance

There is in ayurveda mention pinda swed. It is a type of swedan karma [phomentation] but it do some another manner. 1. Boiled a rice in milk then take this rice in one white cloth then tied it properly and warmly it rub on your face every morning for 15 days then stop it and do next month again 2. Apply almond oil on your face and massage for 3-5 min at night. By doing above thing you will get good result.

Many whitening creams r steroid based. Long-term use is harmful. Can cause thinning & dryness of skin. So please avoid such cream. Instead use moisturising cream & sunscreen lotion depending on your skin type, you will hve to select, whether gel or cream nase.

Hi, May be the area got hurt and now the colour has turned black, visit a nearby doctor to see that area for right diagnosis to be made. Meantime, if it's because of an injury and there is blood clot over the area, apply Schwabe's Topi-Arnica twice a day and take Arnica 30/ thrice a day daily for 1 week. Revert.

Skinshine cream is good or bad for skin, it has hydroquinone, tretinoin, mometasone, furoate cream.

MBBS, MD-DNB

Skinshine cream is good or bad for skin, it has hydroquinone, tretinoin, mometasone, furoate cream.
It's bad for the skin if used unsupervised and for a long period especially on the face. Any fairness produced by this cream is temporary and will lead lit of skin damage if continued.
