Sunscreen is the real fountain of youth. Get into the habit of applying sunscreen or a lotion with minimum spf 15 to 30 protection daily. Remember that the sun's rays can still be damaging in winter months as it reflects off snow.

All You Should Know About Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal is a permanent hair removal method that makes use of laser beams to reach the hair follicles before the light from the beam is absorbed by the same. This method is preferred by people who do not want to go in for traditional methods like waxing, tweezing and epilating as these require regular sessions and may not always be convenient. So, here's all you need to know about laser hair removal:

1. Precision: The laser beam that is set on to the skin gets absorbed by the pigment present in the hair follicles. Each pulse of this laser will take a nano second to treat many follicles at one time. The areas like the upper lip and the bikini line can be treated in a matter of minutes.

2. Duration: Most people going through this treatment will require at least five to seven sessions so as to attain permanent hair loss.

3. Preparation: The procedure does not merely consist of a process that zaps the unwanted hair. Considerable preparation has to go into it, especially since it a long term treatment method. Avoid waxing or electrolysis at least six weeks before the treatment as this may make the skin tender. Also, since the laser beams affect the hair roots that it can catch, it is best to have them grown out so that the procedure is more effective. Also, you will need to limit your time in the sun before going in for the procedure.

4. Trimming: Before the procedure actually starts, the hair will require trimming. A few millimetres will be removed, just above the surface of the skin.

5. Adjustments: Once the trimming is done, the laser equipment will be trained on your skin for a process of adjustment which will involve studying and adjusting as per the colour, thickness and the site of hair removal. Also, the adjustment will be done in terms of the skin colour.

6. Protection: Before the laser pulses are administered, the expert will need to wear eye protection and cover the site of hair removal with a cooling gel that will protect the skin. Also, a test pulse will be administered on to a small patch first, in order to see if there is any reaction or inflammation.

7. Aftermath: After the procedure, the application of anti-inflammatory creams and lotions will take place, following which the next session will be scheduled. Usually, the next session will be three to four weeks later.

You must make sure that you going to a well-known clinic where the laser hair removal process is conducted by an expert.

Getting Rid Of Wrinkles

Wrinkles are a normal yet unsightly sign of aging, which can come about due to various reasons including too much exposure to the sun, poor diet, excessive smoking and drinking, lack of proper sleep, advent of age, loss of moisture and elasticity as well as collagen, which creates a smooth and supple look and other such reasons. Cosmetic and plastic surgeons are now turning to a variety of methods to lessen the pronounced look of wrinkles and remove them for younger looking skin. Here are a few methods currently in use:

*fillers: fillers like collagen and others including poly lactic acid, calcium hydroxylapatite and hyaluronic acid can be used to restore the elasticity of the skin even as they provide precious hydration. These injectables can be used on the face as well as on hands for a smooth and supple look.

* botox: to get rid of the lines on the forehead and to prevent the onset of more pronounced wrinkles, botox or botulinum toxin type a is a favoured element used by many cosmetic surgeons and dermatologists. This is usually administered via injection.

* retinoids: this is administered with a surgical procedure in order to remove uneven pigmentation as well as the roughness of skin, which sets in with age and excessive smoking and sun exposure. It may cause skin peeling and redness.

* laser: the use of laser resurfacing can also help in stimulating collagen production of the skin, which restores some of its elasticity so that wrinkles may be removed and further wrinkles prevented.

*surgery: the use of surgical methods like face lifts, brow lifts and other cosmetic processes can help in giving the skin a tighter look, which does away with the appearance of wrinkles. These are usually minor procedures from which one will heal fast.

*dermabrasion: this method is a surgical one that basically sands the surface of the skin in order to remove the wrinkles. It can cause side effects like permanent discolouration of the skin as well as scarring of sensitive skin in particular.

* peels: glycolic acid peels and deeper peels that use elements like salicylic acid can be used to go deep into the skin and making it smooth again. It basically makes a difference to the fine lines. There is a chance of side effects like scarring, bruising and general discolouration in this method as well.

Adequate sleep, good nutrition, avoiding excessive sun exposure and a good skin care regimen can help in keeping wrinkles at bay for a long time. Moisturising with products that contain plenty of vitamin a and e can also help in reducing fine lines.

Fungus may be Candida albicans or dermatophytes or both. Moreover when fungus is in vagina or vulva or on glans & prepuce, you may also have trichinosis as well as infection with several low virulent bacteria like Ureaplasma urealyticum. Fungus is a plant and grows rapidly in hor humid environment. So it is more in raining season. If sweating occurs frequently, it again rapidly grows. If he has wetness in prepuce or she has wetness in her vagina due to overstimulation or due to any reason, again it grows rapidly and difficult to eradicate. Fungus produces lacs of spores when you try to eradicate it and no medicine can kill spores. We can kill only baby filaments coming out of spores. For that we have to give antifungal on and off for long times so all the filaments coming out of spores get killed and no intact spore remains there. Itching is due to allergic response to fungal filaments and spores. Spores cannot be killed but can be washed off with soap & water washing. Now how to eradicate it? Wash the infected parts & private parts 2-3 times daily with mild soap or with Cetrim soap. Better take bath at least 2 times daily Dry the infected & private parts in fan's wind (or hot blowers wind in cold climate) before wearing clothes. Buy a small table fan dry parts with that. Keep 2 small towels (soft ones, better parts of old sootee dhoti but well cleaned) with you always. Whenever you get sweating over your private parts, take one towel, wet it with water and swipe on your private parts. Afterthat use another dry towel, and scrub the parts. Then dry the parts in fan's wind or by blowing wind with some thin copy or newspaper or old manual fan. To keep parts dry is very essential Wear only loose aerated thin cotton clothes. Use Clotrimazole+Betamethasone cream like Candid-B 2-3 times daily after washing and drying the parts. DK gel contains Micanazole which is not as effective as Clotrimazole. Use Candid Vaginal tablets to insert in vagina in case female. In outer parts of vagina (vulva), use Candid-B cream. Also use Candid-B cream on penis during intercourse. Take Fluconazole 150 mg once daily for 3 days and then once weekly (better on every Sunday) for 5-6 months Take Vitamin A preparation like Aquasol (25000 iu) once daily for 7 days followed by Becadexamin once daily for 2-3 months. Vitamin A is very essential. It causes rapid growth of epidermal layers of skin creating new skin underneath so that fungal infected superficial layers get shed off rapidly and fungal eradication occurs very fast For viginal and penile infection, better use Nuforce 3Kit containing Fluconazole 150 mg ?(for Fungus), Azithromycin 1gm (for Ureaplasma uralyticum) and Ornidazole 2gm (for Trichinsis), one kit every Sunday for 2-3 weeks. Give Kit to both the partner simultaneously. You may also use Fluconazole shampoo and Selsun shampoo along with above treatment if you have dandruff or fungal infection on whole body.

Mr Narang This is a common problem with kids cause is the diet. Kids don't eat vegetables ,fruits water in sufficient quantity so they have constipation leading to acute fissure which gives you this problem of pain and bleeding. So improve the diet of child spend good time with her make her realise the importance of diet. You can use some mild stool softener.she will improve.

Hello, take Sulphur 200, 5 drops as a single dose. Take healthy balanced diet including whole grains, green leafy vegetables, fruits and nuts. Drink 10 to 12 glasses of water daily. Take a sound sleep of 8 hours minimum. Apply bakson's under eye cream on the dark circles. Apply Ramdev's aloe vera gel on the whole face at night. Home remedy:-1.Cucumbers have skin-lightening and mild astringent properties that help fix those raccoon eyes naturally. Plus, they have a soothing and refreshing effect. Cut a fresh cucumber into thick slices and chill them in the refrigerator for 30 minutes. Put the slices onto the affected skin area for about 10 minutes. Wash the area with water. Repeat twice daily for about a week or more. Another option is to mix cucumber juice with lemon juice in equal amounts. Use a cotton ball to apply the mixture on the affected skin. Leave it on for 15 minutes and then wash it off with water. Follow this remedy daily for at least one week.

Hi. There are four main factors which causes acne: Oil production Dead skin cells Clogged pores Bacteria Factors that may worsen the acne: Androgen hormones, certain medications (drugs containing corticosteroids, androgens or lithium can worsen acne), dietary factors, including dairy products and carbohydrate-rich foods — such as bread, bagels and chips — may trigger acne and Stress can make acne worse. Management: Wash your face with Bakson's Facewash (wash your face with warm water only) and followed by CTMP, i.e., cleansing, toning, moisturising and protection (apply liberally Sunscreen Gel with SPF-30) after washing your face daily. Home-made remedies: - Take 1 tbsp of fuller's earth (multani mitti) + a dash of lime + bit of rosewater – apply this on your face till it gets dried up, then rinse it off. - Take 1 tsp of Alum (or fitkari), make it slightly wet with water and apply this on your wet face, spread it well; let it dry and rinse it off.
