Vitamin e protects skin from oxidative (cell) damageand supports healthy skin growth. Foods high in vitamin e include almonds, avocado, hazelnuts, pine nuts and sunflower and corn oils. Skin needs moisture to stay flexible. Even mild dehydration will cause your skin to look dry, tired and slightly grey. Drink six to eight glasses of water a day - all fluids count towards your daily allowance, but water is the best. If you work in an office, keep a large bottle of water on your desk to remind you to drink. Herbal, caffeine-free teas are good too. Try to avoid smoking and excessive alcohol consumption, both can age the skin. Your body does not require excess fat for weight gain, but it requires high protein and moderate carbs. So include soya, eggs, pulses, milk, tofu, paneer, etc in your diet on regular basis.

*To control the oily secretion you should maintain your hormonal level. Because imbalance in hormone level causes excessive oily secretion on face. So do not take stress and do exercise daily such as running, jogging. Do long breathing pranayams daily for 10 minutes.• Drink 7 -8 glass of water daily. Apply rose water on your face daily for 5 minutes.* Take proper sleep of 6 to 7 hrs daily.• Use a face pack of fuller 's earth (multani mitti) with rose water one time in a day for seven days. It removes toxins from skin. *You can apply cucumber juice or mixed with curd for 5 minutes and rinse with water.

Is Ghee good for health and skin?
Desi ghee or clarified butter oil often blamed for obesity and heart diseases is not that bad after all. Indian scientists have just discovered that cow ghee could protect us from cancer. Cow ghee enhances the availability of enzymes responsible for detoxification of cancer-causing substances and decreases the availability of those responsible for activation of carcinogen. It, does not mean you can go ahead with liberal amount of ghee in your food. Ghee poses no danger to cardiac health if the total fat intake is restricted to the prescribed limit, r one must ensure that the intake of total fat (including ghee) should not exceed the prescribed limit of fat consumption. One probable factor in cow ghee is the presence of conjugated linoleic acid (cla), which is known to possess beneficial properties. Cow ghee is a rich natural source of cla, whereas, vegetable oils lack this particular fatty acid. Most vegetable oils contain high amount of unsaturated fatty acid as well as linoleic acid - which is considered pro-carcinogenic as it forms free radicals known to damage dna. The ghee available in india is mostly made from buffalo milk. And though the study was done on cow ghee, scientists said buffalo ghee is also expected to be similarly effective because both contain cla'ghee poses no danger to cardiac health as long as the total fat intake remains restricted to the prescribed limit' moreover, ghee improves blood hdl level, which is good for heart,

Sun Defense Tips for a Flawless Skin

While the sun is necessary for our skin and overall health, excessive exposure often results in many skin problems. Age spots which are actually sunspots, blemishes, pigmentation and sunburns are just a few of the sun related damages that your skin may have to face.

I. Sunscreen is your best friend outdoors

Sunscreen should be worn at all times whenever you go outdoors. Also if you plan to be outdoors for too long, then reapply sunscreen from time to time as you may need to replenish the protection for your skin. A sunscreen with a SPF count of 30 or above is usually preferred; however, this should completely be determined by the type of skin.

What type of damage can sun do to your skin?

Visible sun related damage to your skin could be any or all of the following:

1. Skin which is patchy
2. Dark spots
3. Uneven skin tone
4. Age spots

These are primarily manifestations of deep rooted sun related damage caused by one of the following:

a) Superficial pigmentation This is a pigmentation problem which is mostly caused close to the uppermost layer of your skin i.e. the epidermis. This usually ends showing up as age spots and freckles.

b) Deep hyper-pigmentation As opposed to superficial pigmentation, deeper pigmentation problems occur when age related damage is the cause and there has been prolonged sun exposure. This requires more detailed treatment and thus topical products such as peels may not be as effective as the damage has been at a deeper layer of the skin.

c) Brown patches or melasma Often called the mask of pregnancy as it commonly afflicts expectant women, it may occur in other cases due to hormonal problems as well. It appears as darker patches on your skin within the bridge of the nose, cheeks and forehead. Sun damage aggravates this problem multi fold and thus can make a slight or small problem much worse.


Treatments against sun damage

As mentioned earlier, the best way to reverse sun damage is to use the correct SPF for your skin. A single SPF rating isn t correct for everyone and it is best to consult a dermatologist to determine what rating would be correct for you. However, some of the other modern treatments you can rely on to reverse and prevent sun damage could be:

1. Peels that give instant clarity by reducing pigmentation
2. Reducing complexes such as certain liquid applicants that lessen topical pigmentation
3. Skin rejuvenating Lasers that provide instant clarity with Laser action
4. PRP or platelet rich plasma that is derived from the cells of your own body and then used as a serum to be injected into the skin to heighten its self- healing powers.

How to remove dark circle...?any easy tips for it??
Hi. Dark circles can be temporary (means happens after any recent or chronic diseases or underlying medical condition, allergies, sinus infections and nasal congestions, lower eyelid laxity, fluid retention, hormonal imbalances, hyperpigmentation, aging, sun-exposure, insufficient sleep, worm-infestation, nutritional deificiency, working long hrs. on computer, lack of rest, stress/ tension, etc.) which can be improved by fixing the underlying cause or the problem or can be inherited from your parent's genes which can't be treated or cured! Management: Eat healthy and on time. Avoid junk. Drink plenty of water (as dehydration can cause dull or patchy skin). Sleep well. Wear anti-glare spectacles while working on computer. The area under your eyes has very sensitive skin, so never use chemical bleach.
