Apple is a miracle fruit for the skin.The alpha hydroxy acids or AHA’s present in apples improves skin color and elasticity of the skin.Soak peeled apple slices in milk for 20 minutes and then blend to form a creamy paste.Place in the freezer for 10 minutes, and then mix a tsp of lemon juice, apply all over your face and neck.Rinse off after 15 minutes with cool water and massage an ice cube.The skin looks baby soft, smooth with a rosy white glow.Follow this for a week to get fair skin naturally. or All the natural ingredients (Tretinoin, Hydroquinone and Cortisone) inlcuded in Melamet have only one goal: to improve your skin tone. Tretinoin helps prevent and treat acne and wrinkles by peeling off dead skin cells. Hydroquinone is the skin lightener agent in this equation that improves the overall tone of your skin. Cortisone is an anti-allergy ingredient that reduces inflammation and/or itching.' How to Use: Use the Melamet Cream just before bedtime. Wash it off in the morning, and apply some sunscreen if you intend to go outdoors. Failure to do so will cause significant damage and even result in your skin turning black.

What causes blackness on cheeks as a spot? what are the remedies to reduce it?
Hi that may be because of pitta aggravation / rakt vikar. Its an indication that some impurity is there in the blood. Truely for its rectification, you need to have panchkarma. Ayurvedic medicines may also help. But the most important is to increase your water consumtion. Avoid pitta vardhak diet and lifestyle. Avoid spicy, sour, salty foor. It may help. Good luck sir.

Hi, 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 6-8hrs. Of sleep. Avoid taking stress/ tension. Do daily exercising regularly as it increases oxygen carrying capacity of the cells and tissues. 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. For Sunburn: Apply tomato juice on your skin daily. Apply cucumber juice mixed with lemon. Mix Fuller's earth (multani mitti) with little rose water and a dash of lemon in it and apply on the skin. Rinse it off once it is dry. Medication: Use Schwabe's Skin Care soap, apply Calendula & Aloe Vera cream immediately after bathing, apply Bakson's Suncare sunscreen 20-30min. before going out under the sunlight. At night, use Bakson's Papaya Pack and after washing face apply it's Fairness cream. Follow this daily regime and let me know your feedback.

HOME REMEDIES TO AVOID FUNGAL INFECTIONS


Symptoms Of Skin Fungus

While skin fungus may be caused by different environments and different types of fungi the signs or the symptoms of such infections are common:
• The skin of the feet peels, cracks or scales off
• Redness occurs on the skin as well as blister formation
• The skin tends to soften and breakdown
• There could be itching and burning
It is to be noted that skin fungus causes infections that are highly contagious. Thus, it can easily be transmitted from one person to another. The infected area needs to be treated or else it will spread to other areas of the body and cause complications. The different kinds of skin fungal infections like Jock itch, ringworm, athlete’s foot can be cured or prevented by taking note of the effective home remedies available.

Home Remedies For Skin Fungus

1. Proper Cleaning Routine

We often do not give adequate attention to the feet or clean it properly. It is necessary to:
• Wash feet thoroughly with soap
• It should be scrubbed or exfoliated from time to time to remove the dead skin cells.

2. Keep The Feet And Shoes Dry

It is imperative that one maintains cleanliness and dryness of the feet and shoes:
• One should not wear shoes with wet feet
• The feet should be dried thoroughly after bath or washing

• Apply baby powder in the shoes and the socks
• That will keep the moisture out and reduce chances of infection

7. Keep An Eye Out For Telltale Signs

It is hard to recognize the symptoms of fungal infection. One needs to keep an eye out for the first signs as the skin infection caused by fungi is contagious:
• Crusty skin layer forms on the top of feet
• Small rashes might develop which might itch

8. Do Not Wear Tight Fitting Clothes Or Shoes

When one has fungal infection they should resort to:
• Loose clothing that allow the air movement

9. Tea Tree Oil

This is known to be an effective cure for fungal infections. It can be used in the form of:
• Ointment on the affected area

10. Preventing Skin Fungus On The Back

Hi, it seems to be dyshidrotic eczema. Dyshidrotic eczema is a condition in which small blisters develop on the hands and feet. The blisters are often itchy. The cause is unknown. The condition seems to appear during certain times of the year. You are more likely to develop dyshidrotic eczema when: you are under stress you have allergies, such as hay fever your hands are often in water or moist you work with cement or do other work that exposes your hands to chromium, cobalt, or nickel. Skin care at home keep the skin moist by lubricating or moisturizing the skin. Use ointments (such as petroleum jelly), creams, or lotions. Moisturizers: should be free of alcohol, scents, dyes, fragrances, or other chemicals. Work best when they're applied to skin that is wet or damp. After washing or bathing, pat the skin dry and then apply the moisturizer right away. May be used at different times of the day. For the most part, you can apply these substances as often as you need to keep your skin soft. Dyshidrotic eczema usually goes away without problems, but symptoms may come back. Excess scratching may lead to thick, irritated skin. This makes the problem harder to treat. Medicine: take homoeopathic medicine - petroleum 30/ 3 times a day daily for a month initially. Revert.

My skin has become dull what should I do to make it glowing and shine please help.

MD - Skin,VD & Lepxsy
Dermatologist, Hyderabad
My skin has become dull what should I do to make it glowing and shine please help.
To get that clear, flawless and glowing skin, swear by Cleansing, Toning and Moisturising daily. Always apply sunscreen half an hour before going out in the sun. Reapply sunscreen every 3-4 hours till evening. Keep your skin covered with hat and a scarf in pollution and dust. If you think that applying great products alone will give you glowing skin, then you are wrong. You are what you eat. Nutrition plays an important role to keep you glowing inside out. Eat fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grains. Try to limit intake of junk, smoke and alcohol as this harms your skin the most. One key point I would emphasise here is to exfoliate your skin regularly. Regular exfoliation can be done both by using natural products like gram flour and yogurt or over the counter and safe to use products containing AHAs, BHAs or Glycolic Acid. Before buying these chemical containing cleansers, always go under a patch test by Dermatologist so as to test any possible irritation by them. Using sunscreen after exfoliation is must, so never skip the sunscreen. Exfoliation along with daily moisturisation works wonders on your skin. Pamper your skin once in a week with a good face mask, massage and relaxing bath. If your skin remains dull even after following all the above advices, then do not hesitate to book an appointment with your nearest dermatologist. An expert advise is always recommended to test the underlying causes of skin dullness and help it improve faster.

I have medium skin tone. How to glow it?

BHMS
Homeopath,
I have medium skin tone. How to glow it?
Hi, Believe me, if you are happy from inside and taking nutritious, healthy food and daily yoga or some kind of exercises, it will be automatically reflected 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 3-4hrs.) 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, cantaloupe, 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: You can also use homoeopathic cream - Medicynth's Whitch Hazel 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 daily or every other 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.

If scarring has occurred nothing can be done. Some causes of scarring are recurrent. And sometimes asymptomatic. Hence will recommend regular comprehensive dilated eye checkup. At 6 to 24 months interval depending on the cause of scarring and your eye status.

Black heads are the dark plugs usually black or brown of dried sebum (fatty secretion) of the sebaceous gland, which blocks the pores of the skin. When the skin pores are blocked and reaches the skin surface and are touched by air blackheads are formed. Precautions to be taken are- drink plenty of water. Consume food products rich in antioxidants, like green tea, fruits. Wash the face at least 2-3 times in a day with a good face wash. Don't let the dirt and impurities clog the skin pores. Use of an good scrub will decrease the blackheads. Scrub at least once in 15 days or once in a week. You can also apply alovera gel on them, it will help in reducing the acne n removing the blemishes. You an also apply egg white on the face, leave it untill it gets dry and then wash it off with water.
