6 Ayurvedic Ways You Can Make Your Skin Look Healthy!

Ayurveda is a system of medicine that is based on natural herbs and lifestyle changes. It is a holistic method that focuses on rooting out the cause rather than just focusing on the symptoms. This system of medicine is completely natural; hence there are no side effects.

If you wish to keep your skin healthy, then here are some ayurvedic tips to do that:

  1. Include nuts and seeds: It is very important that you include seeds and nuts in your diet; they contain Omega-3 fatty acids, which are essential for the body. These foods also help in preventing 'Vata' imbalance in the body and provide good content of healthy fats.
  2. Include vegetables: Include vegetables like cabbage, broccoli and carrots in your diet as they provide the body with essential nutrients. They contain antioxidants and trace elements such as zinc and folate that enhance your wellbeing.
  3. Tea: Consume green tea as it helps in boosting metabolism and improving your skin health. Add spices,such as ginger if you are affected by cold and cough, as it helps in alleviating the symptoms. It helps in improving the health of your skin.
  4. Exercise: You should exercise on a regular basis as it has multiple health benefits. It increases muscle mass in the body and helps maintain optimal weight levels. It also increases blood circulation in the body which is good for your skin. You can do a workout of basic yoga postures to avail the benefits of exercise.
  5. Meditate: Meditation has been shown to reduce stress levels in the body which is directly linked with skin health. Too much stress may lead to increased production of free radicals in the body, thus leading to skin damage. You may start off with basic breathing exercises, gradually moving on to other techniques such as mindfulness meditation.
  6. Sleep: Sleep is essential for good skin health as it revitalizes the body. You need to aim for at least six hours of sleep to reap its benefits.

I am 27 year old male. On 1st may I had shaved my pubic hair with a gilette razor. On 5th may I had protected sex with a sex worker. However that day I had small red razor bumps on the pubic area that came into contact with her skin during intercourse. Now I am anxious. Is there risk of HIV or any other STDs?

If you avoid pregnancy donot do sex in unsafe period. Safe period is 1st day to 7th day and 20 th day to strat of next mc. You can sex without nirodh safely. During unsafe days use nirodh with cautions.

Hello, If pregnancy test is negative after 10 days of missed periods then she is not pregnant and the delay is likely to be stress induced.

Me and my Girlfriend enjoying our sex life. But pregnancy is our problem. We are thinking for anal sex. Is it better? Will it hurt my partners inside? Please suggest me regarding anal sex.

MBBS
General Physician, Hyderabad
Hi lybrate-user, I would not suggest anal sex, because any tear in the anal wall will lead to fissure in ano condition. It makes your partner" s anus fibrosed and will not let the stool to come out leading to constipation. As the days passes on it becomes a serious issue to her. Kindly use condom only.

Dear your timing of ipill was good but it does not give full protection every time. If you are getting bleeding around your normal period time then its ok and if its not then it can be a aide effect of the pill.

My wife 51years old is having multiple ovarian cysts about 30mm sizes, since 15years without pain. What should be done?

MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology
Gynaecologist, Mumbai
These cyst must be a part of her pcod as her wight is also 90 kg. Primary objective of your treatment is weight reduction. This will regularize the monthly cycles and also help you get pregnant. You can take metformin to reduce weight. For reducing your weight you should have brisk walk or jogging for 4-5 km daily, high protein diet (fish, chicken, mutton without fat, pulses, mushrooms), low carbohydrate diet (avoid rice, chapatti, bread, poha, upma, idli, dosa, potato, sugar etc and can use bhakri instead) and low fat i. E. Less oil and preferably use rice bran oil. If she has already stopped her menses and still there r cysts present then she should be investigated for other causes like ovarian tumor, ca125, ct scan if needed.

Hello, this is not normal and likely that you are suffering from a penile fungal infection which you transfer each time to her and hence should get a swab test done.

After trying for 1 year any couple should atleast get investigated To know the cause. So I would suggest you to go for those tests first and then decide accordingly whether it's required or not. Atleast the status of tubes should be clear before iui. Yes IUI has 15 To 20% increased chances of conception as compared to natural pregnancy. So if your tubes are open and husband sperm count is good then you can go ahead. All the best.

Hi miss lybrate-user A healthy relationship has countless components apart from sex. There is no denying, though, that if it ain’t happening in the bedroom, things can begin to unravel. Nobody wants a sexless relationship! In fact, problems in the bedroom are some of the biggest factors leading couples to break up. Lack of confidence with your body is one of the most major reasons why couples stop having sex, and one of the main reasons women start to lose trust is they feel they no longer have a firm, tight vagina. Once you no longer feel sexy, your relationship can begin to lack intimacy, and severe problems can develop. The good news is that there are many ways on how to make your vagina, such as using Shots xt jell, one of the most popular products. While you should research all of the possible ways to solve this problem, going the all-natural route will ensure you use something that is safe and also effective. Surgical procedures do work but can be costly, risky and quite invasive. Nothing makes me feel less sexy than the idea of surgery! When there are safe, affordable natural ways to solve your problems, there is simply no need to resort to drastic measures such as surgery. Vaginal rejuvenation surgery might be the best option for some women, but the majority will be better off with a safer option. Hi if you required contact privately,

I am 47 years old, 70 kgs and 5 ft in height. I am having regular periods barring 2 or 3 times when they was a delay of 15 - 20 days. Probably due to my age being closer to menaupase. I have tried exercises and also gone through a diet but without much success. Is it impossible to lose weight in this stage.

Hello Congratulations! You are towards a period when you are considered wise! So why not act wisely towards your health goals. Fad diets bring a bounce back effect and are not very successful in loosing weight. Try to small frequent meals 5-6 times a day. Exercise regularly 5-6 times a week minimum 45 mins a day. Include more of high fiber foods like salads, sprouts,whole grains, green leafy vegetables. Drink plenty of water 4-5 litres a day. Correct Nutritional Deficiencies if any like Calcium, Vitamin B12, Vitamin D3 deficiency. Eat right on right time & get enough sleep.
