Please note the followings in respect to your queries: 1. Banana and Milk -- Bananas are full of calories and contain high amount of carbohydrates and potassium that give you instant energy. Whosoever want to gain weight must eat a banana daily in the morning with a glass of warm milk. Add a teaspoon of sugar in it. Moreover, you can also have it after your meals. Note – Don’t eat bananas when you are down with common cold. 2. Peanut Butter -- Peanut butter is a yummy spread for toast and bread. If you’re trying to gain weight, feel free to go for this high-calorie and nutritious food. Apply it on your whole wheat bread for breakfast and see how your weight increases within a short period of time. •Besides, you can spread a spoonful of peanut butter on fruits or vegetables like banana, apple slices, fresh berries, wheat germ or applesauce. •Alternatively, a peanut butter sandwich is also a good choice. If you have any medical disease that needs to be treated. Find a great personal trainer and yoga instructor to keep you consistent. For pimples take mixed fruit juice daily Also take Acid phos 1M/single dose and get back to me after 2 weeks. Consult me for homeopathic treatment. Recommend me by clicking on recommend option and leave feedback.

Hi Doctor, I have a problem of dark circle under my eyes I want to remove is there any cream for it.

BHMS
Homeopath, Faridabad
Hi Doctor, I have a problem of dark circle under my eyes I want to remove is there any cream for it.
Hello, Common reasons for dark circle are aging, genetics, nutritional deficiency (of vitamin A, C, K, E), sleep deprivation, worm-infestation, anemia, smoking & drinking, dehydration, sun exposure, allergies, stress/ tension and hormonal changes. Dark circles are linked to anemia, and liver diseases. Now a days, eyestrain due to excessive use of computer/ laptop/ smartphone also causes dark circles around eyes. So, in case of dark circles which are there due to some underlying cause can be get rid rid of once the causative factor is rectified. But the dark circles which are inherited from our genes can't be removed completely, to some extent can make slightly better. Diet and Management: Always take a balanced diet rich in green leafy vegetable, dairy products and all types of fruits to keep your body healthy. It is advisable to have at least 10-12 glasses of water and include fresh fruit daily. It is also advisable to restrict the intake of caffeinated drinks such as tea, coffee, alcohol and other caffeinated drinks as it aggravates dehydration. Take enough of 7-8 hrs. Of sleep. Avoid taking stress/ tension. Stay away from alcohol and smoke. Do daily exercising regularly as it increases oxygen carrying capacity of the cells and tissues. Wear sunglasses also when you’re out in the sun to prevent you from squinting and to protect your eyes. Give small frequent breaks in between while working on computer/ laptop or while using a smartphone. Medication: Take homoeopathic medicines – Schwabe's Cina 1M/ one dose at night for 10 days; Alfaalfa Tonic and Five Phos. - both twice daily for 20 days. Use Bakson's Under eye cream twice daily. Apply Bakson’s Suncare sunscreen 15-20 minutes before going under the sunlight. Revert me there after.

It could be due to tanning that your skin has darkened. Use aha glow face wash daily and sunscreen in the morning. At bed time use cream based in retinol or kojic acid.

When you will start going outdoors, you will attain the earlier color again. Staying I doirs means, no contact with sun, dust, pollution, no sweating etc. Once you start going, little tanning, little dust will make your skin the same again.

Skin whitening is called leucoderma .it can be very easily treated with Ayurveda. First you will have to take a virechan. After that you will have to take internal medicine. Also apply cream lukoskin.

PGDD, RD
Dietitian/Nutritionist,
Eat meals at frequent intervals. Eat a mid meal between each main meal. Avoid junk foods. Include dairy eggs nuts fruits in your meals. Avoid alcohol and smoking. Exercise at least thrice a week. Even if you were to take medicines. They will not work in isolation. You have to have a calorie and nutrient dense meal. Once you gain healthy weight your complexion will glow too.

Hi, I required few suggestions to become fair and good looking, I request you to provide me some remedies for it.
Skin colour is a genetic factor. But still environmental factor effect. 1. Clean your face twice using face wash which suits you. The upper layer of our skin is acidic. Ph balance should be aprox 5.5. If it disturbs the it can damage the skin. Soap is very alkaline. So don't use soap. 2. Avoid using so much of cosmetic products. 3. Use medicated sunscreen. 4. Exfoliate the upper dead layer of skin by using some scrub once a wk. 5. Beside all these skin is also a part and parcel of our body system. So be healthy from inside. Drink lots of water. Min 10 - 12 glasses per day. 6. Sleep for 7 - 8 hrs. 7. Regular exercise for 30 - 45 min.

6 Main Causes of Acne

MD - Dermatology, MBBS
Dermatologist, Delhi
6 Main Causes of Acne

Acne is a disorder which is characterized by small red bumps on the skin or occluded pores in the skin such as blackheads. Acne is a teenager's biggest worry. However, it can occur at any age.

Some causes that make your skin prone to acne are:

  1. Hormones: Changes in hormonal balance can cause acne, especially in the beginning of puberty. In some cases, women are affected by acne when the menstrual cycle stops. The acne caused by hormonal changes may also be genetic in nature.
  2. Diet: Following a proper diet is a key factor in keeping your skin healthy. Food usually doesn't cause acne directly but can cause other problems such as greasy skin that are linked with acne. However, foods high in iodides such as seaweeds consumed over time can cause acne. 
  3. Stress: The severity of acne can be correlated to the levels of stress a person is facing. While scientists are yet to figure the exact relationship between stress and acne; it is known that the cells that produce sebum or oil also act as stress receptors. Studies suggest that when a person is under stress, these cells produce excessive sebum that clogs pores on the skin leading to pimples.
  4. Misc factors: Bacteria, excess oil, blocked pores, and dead skin cells are the primary reasons behind acne.
  5. Medication: Any medicine that contains lithium, androgen or corticosteroids can worsen this skin condition. Acne is one of the side effects to a few types of medication such as corticosteroids and anti convulsants. However, this is not seen very often. On the other hand, drugs that contain hormones such as androgenic steroids almost always cause an acne breakout. Treatment for acne depends on the severity of the condition and its persistence. Mild cases can be easily treated with over the counter medication, but if your acne is severe and not affected by these medications, it best to consult a dermatologist.
