How to protect skin from tanning?

Ayurveda,
How to protect skin from tanning?
Summer is almost here and it? s time to store away the sweaters and jackets and usher in the pretty summer dresses. After the long cold winter, it is time to enjoy the sunshine with family and friends in beaches and parks. Despite all the happiness and fun, at the end of the day most of us are left with ugly and unattractive sun tan on face and hands that are not easy to get rid of. Most of us go for a quick bleaching session or use chemical laden cosmetic products for instant tan removal, but all these take toll on our skin in the long run. When it comes to side-effects free healing of tanned skin, home remedies using natural ingredients is the best option because it soothes and nourishes the skin and removes the tan in a caring, gentle manner. Harmful effects of suntan: excessive exposure to ultraviolet rays (uva and uvb) of the sun accelerates melanin production in the skin that leads to darkening of exposed skin. Sun tan usually occurs on body parts that are exposed to sun such as, face, neck, arms and legs. Sun tan causes various skin problems such as acne pimples fine lines wrinkles dark spots hyperpigmentation premature aging of skin skin burn? in extreme cases it can lead to skin cancer cucumber, rose water and lemon juice pack the acidic property of lemon acts as a natural bleach in removing tan and fighting pimples. The cucumber juice and rose water acts as cooling agents for soothing the blemished skin. Take a tablespoon each of cucumber juice, lemon juice and rose water and mix in a bowl. Apply with cotton on tanned areas, wait for 10 minutes and wash off with cold water. Apply this pack every day after you get back home from the sun for medicines and treatment consult privately.

Doctor what is the solution I am very nerves about this dark circles Doctor.
I hope you will help me.
The best treatment to treat dark circles is to increase oxygen circulation in your body with the help of exercises, yoga. Taking break between hectic work schedule and splashing your eyes with cold water 2-3 times a day is helpful. Drink plenty of water throughout the day, have a balanced diet, eat more iron and zinc containing foods like dates, nuts and dry fruits.

Dear lybrate user, pimples/ acne vulgaris is a chronic inflammatory skin disease & develops due to blockages in the skin's hair follicles. These blockages are thought to occur as a result of the following four abnormal processes: a higher than normal amount of sebum production (influenced by androgens), excessive deposition of the protein keratin leading to comedone formation, colonization of the follicle by propionibacterium acnes (p. Acnes) bacteria, and the local release of pro-inflammatory chemicals in the skin. Neither can you stop the over-production of androgen or keratin protein nor can you stop the release of pro-inflammatory chemicals because all these processes takes place internally in your skin. However you can stop the accumulation of p. Acnes bacteria on your skin by preventing your skin from getting oily. Always keep a handkercheif with you whenever you go outside. You should wipe the slightest sweat from your face as soon as you perspire. When you enter your room from outside wash your face with an oil-free, non-moisturizing facewash. Take a less carbohydrate rich diet. Do some exercise daily. Drink a lots of water in order to avoid constipation. Along with maintaing the aforesaid rules you can also take homoeopathic calcarea phos 200, 5 drops, thrice daily, in empty stomach. Also you can apply homoeopathic mother tincture berberis aquifoium q on the dark spots on your skin which are produced after the resolution of the pimples.

Homeopath,
My wife's rubella igg is negative, what 

should we do?
Less than 7 iu/ml igg antibodies and less than 0.9 igm antibodies. This means you are not immune to rubella and you can get the infection. If you are a woman thinking about getting pregnant, talk with your doctor about getting a rubella vaccine before pregnancy.

Hello- >more thn the cosmetics healthy glowing skin depends upon the healthy digestion. So maintain your proper healthy diet schedule. >use natural products like coconut oil, besan etc for skin instead of chemical products. It will not only provide prolonged glowing effects but also are side effect free. >proper sleep duration and sleep timings are necessary for beauty. Follow 6-10 schedule for going to bed and waking up. >do pranayam like anulom vilom in the morning as it increases the oxygen level inside the blood thus making skin rich and fair from inside. Note-history of pcos suggests that your eating habits are not proper, so your skin glow very much depends upon your digestion.

Dear lybrate-user. If the fissure is recurrent than you should undergo sugery. It's a small surgery which can be done as day care surgery. 1 to 2 days of rest is enough and total recovery time is 5 to 7 days.

•Start by cleaning your skin using a special cleansing gel or oil. Do not use products that contain alcohol or acid since they can damage your skin further. Steam your face for about 10-15 minutes to open clogged pores. Add a few drops of basil or rosemary in the water for a rejuvenating effect. •Next, gently exfoliate your skin. Use a gentle face scrub of a known brand. You could even make your own natural scrub by combining ground sugar and a little milk! This process will help you remove dirt, dead cells, blackheads and whiteheads that block your skin. •The third step involves using a good toner that would close the open pores, thus diminishing their appearance. Along with closing pores, toners also help to remove soap residue and makeup, which often render a large appearance to the pores. •Finally, use a light moisturizer, preferably a water-based one that would reduce the oiliness of your skin.
