Dark circles can not generally be caused by masturbation. It is due to lack of essential vitamins or minerals in your diet or due to lack of sleep. Include more protein in your diet, start exercising and sleep a lot.

Skin Problems - How Ayurveda Can Help You?

Skin Problems - How Ayurveda Can Help You?

Our skin has a tendency to become harsh, dry and aggravated during specific seasons and with age. As per Ayurveda, it happens because of the collection of vata in the body. When there is excess of vata, we are inclined to dry skin, acne, dry hair and weak nails. Vata can appear in the body even faster in case you are under stress. Here are some Ayurvedic tips that will decrease the vata accumulation in the body and will help you remain young and keep your skin healthy:

  1. Try not to skip the veggies: Stick to high water content vegetables that are easy to digest, for example, lettuce, carrot, cucumber, radish (which is highly recommended in Ayurveda for its healing properties), fennel, and asparagus. These vegetables are useful for a wide range of skin. Mix no less than three and relish with a basic olive oil-lemon juice dressing.
  2. Add some seeds and nuts: Both conventional and Ayurvedic medications believe that including seeds and nuts in your diet will enhance the state of your skin. Vata is drying by nature so all nourishments that have regular and healthy fats in them will keep this dryness. The seeds and nuts contain Omega-3, healthy fats and fiber to help get rid of the vata assimilation.
  3. Have some tea: Vata is dry and cool by nature so your skin will remain healthier looking, if your keep these two qualities under control. Remain hydrated for the duration of the day and have warm fluids, for example, herbal tea. Making some hot tea with crisp ginger and lemon will wake you up toward the evening and keep your absorption healthy, which is important for shining skin.
  4. Keep exercise regular: Exercising is fundamental in keeping the Vata from spreading further. Exercising is recommended to keep your muscles and joints sound and healthy while helping you sweat out the toxins. Exercise will likewise enhance blood flow, absorption, and give you a solid skin
  5. Practice yogic breathing: High levels of mental anxiety are one of the significant reasons why Vata gets disturbed. It truly sucks out all the good juices from your skin making it dried out. Breathing can be an exceptionally powerful anxiety buster that you might need to consider.
  6. Snooze off with sunset: Aggravated Vata frequently causes anxiety, which can lead to a sleeping disorder. Any healthy skin proficient or Ayurvedic specialist will tell you that getting no less than seven hours of rest is something worth it in order to have a scar-free glowing skin.
  7. Use skin moisturiser: Staying hydrated within is vital yet you should not disregard dealing with your outer skin all things considered, too. Purging and saturating are the most essential to keeping your skin sound and youthful.

*Orange and curd mixture works well on dark damaged tanned skin. Orange has skin lightening properties and works well as a face mask. Curd works as the cleansing component on the skin and gives brightening glow to the skin. Mix dry orange peels with curd and make a fine paste. Gently apply this pack on your face and wash it with chilled rose water after 10-15 minutes. It makes your skin look fairer naturally. * mix cucumber juice+ tomato juice , then apply this on your face. Exfoliate your skin at least twice a week. This will help to remove the dead cells and open pores, thus lightening your skin tone. Always use sunscreen 20 minutes before stepping out from home. A good sunscreen with SPF 40 will help to prevent tan in the Indian climate. Drink adequate amount of water to keep your body and skin hydrated. A good sleep at night is also very important for healthy and glowing skin Apply topi cantharis on the black spots at bed time.

Vinegar is a natural exfoliate and you can use either apple cider or white vinegar to exfoliate your skin. Using clean pad, apply some vinegar on the face and rinse it off after five to 10 minutes with cool water. If your skin is sensitive, you can dilute the vinegar with water. You can also freeze the vinegar into cubes or chill it for a cooling effect. This treatment can help control oily skin and acne but you will need to use the vinegar consistently before bed for about two to three weeks for best results. Aloe vera We all know that Aloe Vera has various healing powers. This miracle plant is great for the skin and you can grow it naturally and then slice it to get the gel or purchase the gel from your nearest department store. You can apply aloe gel on your face three times a day and you do not even need to rinse it off.

Best Treatment Options To Get Rid Of Wrinkles

Best Treatment Options To Get Rid Of Wrinkles

There is a wide range of options to get rid of wrinkles. Laser treatments are considered to be one of the best ways to eradicate wrinkles for a long time. There are other treatments such as microdermabrasion, photo facials, and chemical peels as well. Dermal fillers are used to treat deep wrinkles. Wrinkles of the forehead and the eye are best treated with Dysport and botox.

There is a wide range of options to get rid of wrinkles. Laser treatments are considered to be one of the best ways to eradicate wrinkles for a long time. There are other treatments such as microdermabrasion, photo facials, and chemical peels as well. Dermal fillers are used to treat deep wrinkles. Wrinkles of the forehead and the eye are best treated with Dysport and botox.

How Does Laser Work?

Laser treatments such as the Fraxel and the fractional CO2 make tiny pores in the skin. These pores or incisions have two purposes. The first is to make sure that the skin produces collagen and the second is to ensure that the skin heals quickly. The laser can address wrinkles in areas such as eye, face, hands and legs. Out of all the treatment plans, laser treatment is by far the costliest one. They are typically used by maxillofacial surgeons having in-depth knowledge of physiology. Treatment of this kind might require more than one session depending on the extent of wrinkles.

How Does Dermal Filler Work?

Dermal fillers are a popular method to address wrinkles and are used to destroy wrinkles around the mouth and the eye. Lasers can also diminish hollowness and dark circles near the eye. Moreover, they are very effective in making up the lost volumes of the jawline, temples, and cheeks. Dermal fillers, however, last for about a year and needs to be redone to hold on to the facial changes. They are typically safe and contain limited side effects. A consulting session with the doctor will help to know more about the potential risk of this treatment.

Removing wrinkles from under the eye-

Botox and Dysport are two of the most popular options to get rid of wrinkles under the eye region. While lasers can diminish the appearance of wrinkles, botox and Dysport can permanently get rid of it. They also ensure that the wrinkles do not come back for quite some time. Some other wrinkles that botox and Dysport can fix include wrinkles of the forehead, eye, and the brows.

How Effective Are Wrinkle Creams?

In comparison to botox and lasers, wrinkle creams are far less effective. This being said, they are extremely popular for the fact that they are readily available over the counter and are very cheap. Most wrinkle creams contain retinol that helps to increase collagen production and stimulate turnover of the skin. Wrinkle creams that are designed for the eye do not contain retinol since they are an eye irritant and can cause damage to the eye. These creams also contain anti-oxidants that help the collagen to hold their own and stop the interference of free radicals.

My friend who is 20 years old got hurt in the anal area while having sex. She was in a lot of pain. She fainted in some time. What could be the reason that she fainted?

Fellowship in Minimal Access Surgery, MS - General Surgery, MBBS, FICS

She must have developed an anal fissure. Anal Fissure is a painful condition and extreme pain can sometimes lead to fainting. She should have sitz bath at least twice a day. Keep the stools soft by taking plenty of fluids and fibre rich diet. She can take some stool softener at bed time for few days. She must avoid non -veg, fried and spicy food. A pain killer sos may help. Thanks.

Hello. Sun tanning is very common in a country like ours. It is extremely important that you take precaution from sun. 1) always apply a good sunscreen having spf>30 before going out during the day. 2) additionally remember to cover your exposed parts with scarf/hat etc. 3) if you follow above instructions thoroughly. After few months your tanning will decrease and you will regain your natural skin color up to some extent. 4) additionally you will require depigmentating creams to regain your natural skin color. Take care.

I have blackness (darkness) on my head (forehead) excluding rest of my face. What should I do.

I have blackness (darkness) on my head (forehead) excluding rest of my face. What should I do.
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.

Lichen Sclerosus overview

CCT, DMAS, Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (MRCOG), MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology, DNB, MBBS
Gynaecologist, Chennai
Lichen Sclerosus overview

Quite a rarity, Lichen sclerosus is a skin disease, which is typically identified as white, patchy skin that is both sensitive and thinner than the surrounding area. Although it can appear anywhere on the body, it is found to occur predominantly in the skin regions in and around the vulva, the anus and the foreskin of the penis. It is a common occurrence in postmenopausal women.

Symptoms
Mild cases of lichen sclerosus are usually asymptomatic, but moderate to severe cases may have any of the following signs and symptoms:
1. Itching, which may or may not be severe
2. Smooth and sensitive white spots
3. Easy tearing or bruising
4. Pain or discomfort
5. Wrinkled or blotchy patches
6. Painful intercourse
7. Blistering, bleeding or ulcerated lesions in more severe cases

Causes
Although there are no known exact causes of lichen sclerosus, here are a few possible causes:
1. An overactive immune system
2. An imbalance of hormones
3. Previous skin damage at a particular site making it tender and sensitive

Complications
A number of problems may arise from the skin disease, if left untreated. Here are a few complications:
1. Skin cancer may develop, but then again, this is a very rare occurrence
2. Lichen sclerosus on the vulva can lead to the development of vulvar cancer.
3. Sexual intercourse can get extremely painful for women in severe cases, due to intensive scratching and scarring
4. Can cause thinning and tightening of the foreskin of uncircumcised men. This can be troublesome during erections or when urinating.

Treatment
If the symptoms do not show or if your genital area is not badly affected, then you may not necessarily need treatment. However, if symptoms begin to appear, you should probably consult a doctor for treatment. Treatment can help decrease scarring and itching, as well as improve your skin's appearance.
Corticosteroid ointments and creams are the most common form of treatment. Apart from this form of treatment, you should consult your doctor may also prescribe the following:
1. Immune-modulating medications
2. Ultraviolet light treatment
3. Topical sex hormones
4. Circumcision or removal of the foreskin of the penis

It's all in the food you eat. Your diet must include fresh fruits and a full serving of salads at every meal: cucumber, tomato, carrot, radish, onion slices or spring onion, raw cauliflower, cabbage leaf, etc. All this is essential to give you a balanced nutrient boost. Cut out any junk food and aerated drinks totally. Generally foods that come out of a packet, or can, or bottle shud be avoided. Exercise to increase circulation:- 2 mins of hard exercise then 1 min rest - do this four times a day. You can either do it all in one go or split it into sessions through the day. In total it is only 12 mins a day so should not be a big issue. A very useful exercise is to jump in one place simulating skipping. Build up your time to 2 mins. Of jumping. In conclusion, live and eat healthy and you will develop energy, a glowing skin and a healthy'go' in life -regardless of age. I will send meds for oily skin on request.
