Pimples or acne is caused when Hair follicles in your skin gets clogged due to oil, dirt, bacteria or dead skin. Acne generally occurs in people with oily skin but other factors like dead skin, dirt, pollution or hormonal imbalance can also cause acne in people with normal skin. Acne and their marks can be reduced or controlled by including some habits in your daily life style. 1. Keep your skin clean – Wash your face daily with an oil control face wash. You can also use a good AHA glow face wash that not only controls oil but also removes dead skin and bacteria. By shedding the old dead skin, your skin feels rejuvenated and clean. Apply a good toner, like tea tree toner after washing your face. After toning, apply an oil free and non- comedogenic cream on face. Last but not the least, apply a good sunscreen with minimum 30 spf daily. 1.Face packs – Occasionally apply good oil controlling face packs. Multani mitti + Lemon + yogurt is a good face packs for oily skin beauties. You can apply organic apple cider for 5 minutes after washing your face to kill the bacteria that clogs your pores. Green Tea can also be used as a toner once a day. 2.Diet – Most important thing is diet. Eat fresh fruits and green leafy vegetables daily. Reduce junk food intake, colas, alcohol and soda and consume whole grains. Keeping your digestive system healthy keeps your body and blood toxins free. Drink green tea, lemon juice, orange juice and food items containing Vitamin C as it is responsible for maintaining good skin health. Drink at least 10 glasses of water every day. 3.Exercise – Exercises, yoga, suryanamaskar improves the blood circulation and balances hormones. They keep skin healthy and boost body’s immunity to deal with several issues and not just acne. Include it in your daily regime.

I'm 22 years old female. I'm having lose of hair in my forehead. My forehead has become so big. I think so it is due to over stress. What I shd do to control it and grow hair on my forehead?

Your hair needs a high protein well-rounded diet. A strand of hair is composed of mostly protein, which means your hair needs protein to grow. Hair and nails are both protein fibers. Hence a therapeutic diet prescribed by a registered dietitian can help a lot in hair growth. Besides diet excessive stress and some medication are conclusively known to retard hair growth and promote hair loss. - cut down on the use of hair spray, hair gels, and styling creams that contain harsh chemical ingredients, which can dry out the scalp and cause the formation of flakes. Also harsh treatments such as perms, colours, relaxers etc take a toll on the health of your hair. - avoid changing your shampoo and conditioner constantly. Stick to one good mild cleansing shampoo for six months before changing. - excessive exposure to the sun, pollution, rain water and dust without proper protection makes the hair dry, brittle and limp. Use a live in conditioner during the rains to protect it from the humidity and wash and oil it regularly to maintain a healthy scalp. I being a both a registered dietitian and doctor have been successfully helping patients with their problems through a holistic approach using customized therapeutic diet and medications. Do reply back for private consultation.

Hi, There is an old-age saying - “Be happy and make others happy!” Follow this funda in your life and you will see the difference! Management: Include healthy, nutritious food, doing daily yoga or some kind of exercises. All these automatically reflects glow on your face. Yes, the colour which is inherited from your parents/ ancestors, cannot be changed, but you can try to get glow on your face! Daily Regime: Apart from these, you do follow CTMP, i.e. Cleansing, toning, moisturising and protection (apply liberally sunscreen with SPF-30 – a thick layer of Bakson's Suncare cream may be, 20-30 minutes before going out daily and repeat it's application after every 3-4 hrs.) after washing your face daily; use the products as per your skin type. This will change the skin texture and skin tone. In case you do have tanning, apply honey with a dash of lime on your face. Eat right and healthy that too on time, relieve your stress/ tensions, sleep well, stop smoking, as this restricts blood flow to your face and leaves you with a greyish complexion. Lead a healthy lifestyle! Apart from this, avoid anger, anxiety, fear which increases stress hormone in the body and subsequently makes your complexion darker! (Hormonal imbalances also plays a major role). If the dull and dark skin tone is due to any underlying ailment or diseases, need to look into the matter. Diet: -Increase your Vitamin C intake (lemon, orange,gooseberry, etc.Fruits/juices, strawberries, sweet peppers, tomatoes, can notaloupe, and green peas). - Eat more Vitamin A (nonfat milk, oysters, and egg yolks, carrots, watermelon, papaya, tomatoes, or other dark colored produce) . If you feel your skin is weak or not tight enough, that usually suggests a lack of Vitamin A. Medicine: Use homoeopathic cream - Medicynth's Whitch Hazel or Bakson’s Fairness cream daily at night. Home remedies: Apply fresh-squeezed lemon juice to your entire face and neck. Leave it on for 10 minutes and then wash it off with lukewarm water. After this, rub cucumber slices on your skin to soften and moisturize it. Do this 2-3 times a day. Another option is squeeze the juice of one-half lemon and mix one to two tablespoons of raw honey in it. Apply it on your face, leave it on for 15 to 20 minutes and then rinse it off. Make a paste of 'Kasturi Manjal' (wild turmeric) with rose petals, saffron and raw milk which is very effective.

My son age 27 weight 89 height 5'9" he is suffering from pimples. please suggest him how to reduce pimples.
Dear Mr. lybrate-user, your son can start using a face wash that contains Salicylic acid- twice a day. The treatment for acne/pimples depends upon the grade. It ranges from gels/creams to tablets to chemical peels. Any dandruff associated should also be treated simultaneously. It is best if you could take him to a nearby dermatologist so that the best treatment can be decided upon. I hope this answers your query!

Hi,Age 26, Height 6'2" I used to have 1-2 pimples on my face since my childhood. Sometimes I used to pinch them that causes pus or blood to come out. Also I used to pinch out dead skin on my face. Apart from that my face was very clear. About 6 months back, I had very small whiteheads on my chin and above my lips. I thought it is due to shaving. After a month they disappeared and 2-3 very large cysts formed on my cheeks. I started reading about it on net. I found out that applying vinegar on affected area can help. So I applied normal white vinegar for 2-3 days. The situation got worse. Then I realized that it is actually Organic Apple Cyder Vinegar with mother, not a normal one. I purchased that and started applying it as a toner mixed with water. But nothing happened at all. Then I finally went to a dermatologist. He prescribes me benzoyl peroxide 5% gel, ahaglow face wash, Adaferin gel, and isotretinoin 30mg. The isotretinoin dose was changed from 30mg to 40mg to 80mg. I continued this meditation for 4 months. But acne got worse and spread all over my face. I was really disappointed. After that I visited a skin institute in Delhi. The doctor prescribed me Omnacortil 20 for 10 days after that Omnacortil 10 for another 10 days followed by alternate dose of Omnacortil 10 for another 10 days after breakfast. Other medicines were Pineglow T, Antoxid HC after lunch. Stretenoin 20mg (now increased to 30mg) after dinner. Nadoxin gel, Mazonic plus cream, Mozic cream for hyperpigmentation and Moiz face wash - were also prescribed. But still I can see no sign of improvement. Every other day, I get a new cyst/boil/pimple. The face is all damaged. I never had this kind of acne in my entire life. Tht pores have become very large. I am currently drinking 2 tsp Apple Cyder Vinegar with water twice a day as I have heard that it helps in removing toxins from body. My diet is very good. From past two months I have stopped eating sugar and dairy products. Just a glass of milk everyday. Lots of orange juice and balanced meals including one big cup of curd. Please, suggest me something.

What to Expect with Hair Transplant Procedure?

What to Expect with Hair Transplant Procedure?

Look around you and you will certainly notice some of your friends already are sporting bald patches or thinning hair even before they reach an age of 40. Until a few years back, baldness was seen as a sign of age or hereditary baldness, but today, there are a number of factors such as stress, environmental pollution or hormonal changes that trigger hair loss or baldness. For all those suffering from this problem, the good news is that science has found a way to cover these bald patches and thicken thin hair through a surgical procedure known as hair transplant surgery.

Hair transplant surgery is of two types; follicular unit strip surgery (FUSS or FUT) and follicular unit extraction (FUE). The former involves removing a strip of the scalp from the back of the head and dividing it into thousands of grafts each with a few hair follicles. On the other hand, follicular unit extraction involves plucking the hair follicles out individually to be made into grafts. These grafts are then inserted into tiny incisions on the bald areas of scalp. Depending on the size of area to be covered, this procedure could take 4-8 hours. You can also take the package for

Post surgery, the patient is prescribed some medication to relieve the pain and itching sensation. You should be able to return to work within a week. After 2 to 3 weeks of the process, the transplanted hair begins to fall out in order to make way from the new growth which may take up to few months. This is normal so do not stress yourself about this. Most people will notice 60% of new hair growth in 6 to 7 months. Full growth occur in one year. In some cases, patients may be prescribed a hair growing drug such as minoxidil to improve the quality and speed of hair growth.

A hair transplant surgery does not address the cause for hair fall and hence in some cases, a repeat procedure becomes necessary. If you wish to discuss about any specific hair problem, you can consult a specilized dermatologist and ask a free question.
