Yes one of them is due to sinusitis ,cold or allergies, Nasal congestion can dilate the blood vessels that drain from the area around your eyes, causing them to darken. Other causes are Heredity, aging,dry skin, Sleep deprivation ,Oversleeping, Eczema, Stress, Iron deficiency, Lifestyle (working for long hours in front of a computer, unhealthy diet. ,Fluid retention, Skin pigmentation abnormalities, Excessive exposure to the sun ,Periorbital cellulitis. It is always better to get rid of underlying problem first to treat your dark circles problem, as other tips will just give you temporary relief. Some ways to get rid of dark circles at home are Almond Oil and vitamin E oil ,cucumber, raw potato, rose water, tomato,lemon juice, tea bags, or put cotton dipped in tea water, turmeric, cold compress or cotton dipped in cold water. Consult me for further evaluation and treatment. Your feedback matters. Thank-you.

Facial Melanosis Treatment

MBBS, MD - Dermatology
Dermatologist, Delhi
Facial Melanosis Treatment

Facial Melanosis is the effect of excessive Melanin and abnormal Melanocyte under the skin. This results in hyperpigmentation problem; which frequently changes from brown to black and is usually found on the cheek and brow areas of the face. Mostly occurring in females as compared to males, it is found in the age group of over 30 years. Pregnancy, sun exposure, stress, hormone treatments including contraceptive pills, certain medications, and some cosmetics are some of the factors triggering Facial Melanosis.

Treatments for Facial Melanosis:

Facial Melanosis treatment might be very slow to respond. Sometimes, it also leads to irritation in sensitive skin, thus resulting in post inflammatory pigmentation.

Usually, a combination of following measures is helpful:

General Measures:

  1. Discontinuation of hormonal contraception
  2. Lifelong, year-round sun protection with a high SPF sunscreen. Reapply it after every 2 hours in case you are outdoors during the summer. Along with this, wear a broad-brimmed hat.
  3. If applicable, choose cosmetics which have sunscreen.
  4. Use a mild cleanser and if your skin is dry, don’t forget to use a light moisturizer.

Topical Measures:

  1. Application of Anti-Melasma Cream – The main function of Anti-Melasma cream is to reduce the Melanin by interrupting Tyrosinase (enzyme containing copper found in animal and plant tissues which support the secretion of melanin) activity. The active elements in the cream which are intended for Anti-Melasma are Licorice Acid, Retinoic Acid, Hydroquinone, Kojic Acid, Tranexamic Acid, Azelaic Acid and Ascorbic Acid.
  2. Usage of Sun Protection Cream – You should look out for those sun protection creams with SPF factor above 15. Also, Sunscreen should be Para-Aminobenzoic Acid-Free (PABA-Free). The presence of Micronized Titanium Dioxide, which is an active element that works as UV-A and UV-B reflector, becomes an issue of importance while selecting the perfect sunscreen.
  3. Peeling – Superficial or the epidermis layer of your skin can be chemically peeled off and this must be done by a specilized dermatologist or under the supervision of a dermatologist.

If you wish to discuss about any specific skin problem, you can consult a specilized dermatologist and ask a free question.

Dear , follow these important tips to get even skin tone : * avoid to go in strong sunlight and if you have to go in sunlight then cover your face & exposed parts of body before going in sunlight. * Use sunscreen having SPF 15 on face especially in summer and spring season. * Take vitamin -E rich foods like dry fruits, egg and fish as you like. * Take more anti oxidant foods like fruits (Apple, grapes, melon) and citrus fruits. * Make paste of Papaya and apply this paste on face & near the mouth area leave it for 15 minutes. It brightens the skin and lower melanin content. *• Apply one teaspoon of honey for 20 minutes and wash it off . • Apply one teaspoon Besan with one teaspoon of curd and a pinch of haldi (turmeric) mix it with water then apply it on face for 15 minutes then rinse off it with water .

Before starting any nourishment treatment, there is a need of removing the dead cells those have formed already due to improper maintenance. If you wouldn?t have taken care of your neck that much, it would have filled with more and more of waste accumulated dead cells by now. Let us scrub away them with a magical kitchen ingredient called ?oats?. You have to simply grind oats coarsely and add a dash of tomato puree to it. Make sure not to grind oats as powder fine powder as it might loose the exfoliating properties. Apply this mixture evenly on to your neck skin and leave it for about 20 minutes. After that, wet your finger tips and start scrubbing your neck gently; wash away with cold water and moisturizer. This process can be followed twice or thrice a week to achieve faster results in removing dead skin cells and dark patches from the neck. ? Take a resolution to wash your neck every time you wash your face. ? Never hide the facial moisturizer from your neck skin. ? Heat almond oil and massage your neck once in a month for better blood circulation and glow. ? Doesn?t your neck mind the harmful UV rays? Your neck skin needs sunscreen too, so never say no to sunscreen lotion and make your neck suffer. ? Last but not the least; do not wear allergic metal ornaments or other street bought chains on your neck as they cause neck darkening.

Due to rubbing my thighs I got a infection in my thighs can you suggest me a ointment.

Due to rubbing my thighs I got a infection in my thighs can you suggest me a ointment.
With all its moisturizing action, aloe vera is one of the most effective skin soothing agents. When you rub the gel over an itchy spot, it helps reduce the skin irritation in that area and provides quick relief from itching. Just break a leaf from the plant, cut it lengthwise using a knife and using a spoon, scoop out the jelly-like substance inside. Apply a little of this gel to the itchy area and leave it on for a few minutes.
