Home Remedies For Oily Skin

कई लोगों के सुंदर नयन नक्श होते हैं पर उनकी त्वचा की कमी सबकुछ फीका कर देती है। त्वचा में कमी का मतलब कालेपन या गोरेपन से नहीं बल्कि स्किन की टाइप से है। आमतौर पर त्वचा चार तरह की होती है- नॉर्मल, ड्राय, ऑइली और सेंसेटिव। ऑइली स्किन का मतलब है आपकी स्किन में लिपिड लेवल यानि वसा की मात्रा ज्यादा होना। आपकी स्किन किस टाइप की है, यह तीन फैक्टर पर निर्भर होता है- पानी, लिपिड लेवल और संवेदनशीलता। ऑइली स्किन अकसर हार्मोनल बदलाव की वजह से होती है, इसका सम्बन्ध लाइफस्टाइल से भी है। ऑइली स्किन चमकदार, मोटी और बेजान होती है। इस तरह की स्किन वाले पुरुष और महिलाओं की आंख के नीचे काले धब्बे आने का खतरा रहता है। ऑइली स्किन में पोर्स यानि त्वचा में पाए जाने वाले छिद्र बड़े-बड़े होते हैं और सैबेकियस ग्लैंड ज्यादा सक्रिय होते हैं। नतीजा ऐसी स्किन ऑइली हो जाती है।

स्किन ज्यादा सुर्ख या ज्यादा तैलीय हो तो हमें कई तरह की स्किन प्रोब्लेम्स का सामना करना पड़ता है और हमारी लुक खराब होती है सो अलग। तो आज हम बात करेंगे तैलीय त्वचा से निज़ात पाने के नुस्खों के बारे में। शरीर द्वारा उत्पन्न किये गए प्राकृतिक तेल की वजह से ही त्वचा स्वस्थ रह पाती है। लेकिन अगर चेहरे पर तेल ज़्यादा हो जाए तो कई साइड इफेक्ट्स भी हो सकते हैं। इनमें से एक साइड इफेक्ट्स के तौर पर आपके चेहरे पर मुहांसे भी हो सकते हैं। एक्ने का कारण भी त्वचा का ज्यादा तैलीय होना है।
हम में से ज्यादातरलोग स्किन के तेलहनपन को कंट्रोल करने के लिए ऑइल कंट्रोल क्रीम्स, मॉइस्चराइज़र्स जैसे कई और कास्मेटिक का इस्तेमाल करते हैं। हालांकि इनका इफ़ेक्ट होता है पर ये हर किसी के पास अवेलेबल हों यह जरूरी नहीं। तो अगर चाहें तो आप प्राकृतिक तरीकों से अपने स्किन के तैलीयता को कंट्रोल कर सकते हैं।

1. चंदन पावडर और मुल्तानी मिट्टी
एक चम्मच चंदन का पाउडर, एक चम्मच मुल्तानी मिट्टी, एक चम्मच केओलिन पाउडर मिलाकर चेहरे पर करीब 15-20 मिनट रखें उसके बाद चेहरा धो लें। 

2. व्हाइट एग
अंडे की सफेदी का मास्क त्वचा को अच्छा कसाव देता और वसामय ग्रंथियाँ को बंद कर देती है।

3. बेसन हल्दी
करीब 15-16 चम्मच बेसन और पिसी हुई हल्दी में थोड़ा-सा कच्चा दूध या पानी मिलाकर गाढ़ा-गाढ़ा घोल बनाएं और फिर एक चम्मच या 8-10 बूंद सरसों का या तिल का या फिर जैतून का तेलमिलाकर स्क्रबबना ले फिर स्क्रबको चेहरे, गर्दन, हाथ-पैर, कोहनियां,पर लगा लें। लेप के सूखने के बाद नार्मल स्क्रब की तरह छुड़ा लें और पानी से धो लें।बेसन और हल्दी के इस scrub को चेहरे पर लगाने से oily skin से राहत के साथ ही साथ चेहरे के दाग, धब्बे, झुर्रियां तथा अनावश्यक बाल भी दूर होते हैं। 

4. कोकोनट मिल्क
नारियल के दूध में बहुत से खनिजों का मिश्रण होता है। इसे अपने चेहरे पर लगाएं और कुछ देर के बाद धो दें। नारियल में मौजूद तेल आपकी त्वचा में मौजूद नमी में वृद्धि करता है और आपकी त्वचा से तेल को कम करता है।

5. मुल्तानी मिट्टी और आटे का फेसपैक
हल्की पीली रंगत वाली मुल्तानी मिट्टी, जई का आटा और बादाम को पीसकर मिलाने के बाद दो घंटे तक किसी कांच या चीनी मिट्टी से बने बर्तन में इसे रख दे फिर इस स्क्रबको चेहरे पर लगा लें यह तैलीय त्वचा की बेहतरीन सफाई करते हैं। इस से रोम छिद्रों का मैल साफ होगा और त्वचा की रंगत भी निखरेगी। 

6. शहद,चीनी,बुरा और नींबू रस
शहद, चीनी का बूरा और नींबू का रस मिलाकर चेहरे पर लगायें नींबू का रस त्वचा का रंग साफ करता है और पोर्सको सुखाता है तथा चीनी त्वचा को नरम बनाती है। इसे गीली त्वचा पर 15-20 मिनट के लिए लगा रहने दें फिर धो लें।

7. बेसन
तैलीय त्वचा के लिए केवल बेसन को ही पानी में घोलकर लेप कर लें तथा 15 मिनट के बाद इससे चेहरे का चिपचिपापन दूर होकर चेहरा निखर जाएगा।

8. बर्फ
अगर त्वचा इतनी अधिक तैलीय हो कि मेकअप भी न ठहरता हो तो इसके लिए आप एक बर्फ का टुकड़ा दूध में भिगोकर चेहरे पर धीरे-धीरे मलें। इस प्रयोग से त्वचा का चिकनापन दूर होकर चेहरे पर ताजगी का एहसास होगा।

9. दही
दही में लैक्टिक एसिड होता है और यह किसी अन्य दुग्ध उत्पाद की तरह ही त्वचा को साफ़ करता है। दही त्वचा को प्राकृतिक तरीके से सुखा देती है और इस प्रक्रिया में त्वचा का प्राकृतिक तेल भी नष्ट नहीं होने देती।

10. चावल आटा और गुलाबजल
चावल का आटा गुलाब जल के साथ मिला कर इसे थोड़ी देर कड़ा होने तक छोड़ दें फिर इस scrub को फेस पर लगाएं।

11. नमक का स्प्रे
नमक प्राकृतिक रूप से सुखाने वाला पदार्थ होता है तथा यह कीटाणु नाशक भी होता है। स्प्रे करने वाली बोतल में एक चमम्च नमक डालकर चेहरे पर स्प्रे करें यह आप हर रोज कर सकती है।

12. गेंदे के फूल का क्लिंजर
एक मुटठी भरगेंदे की पंखुडियां लेकर एक कप उबलते हुए पानी में डाल दें, फिर इसको पांच दस मिनट छोड़ दें, फिर जब ये छूने लायक ठंडा हो जाये तो पंखुडियो का गूदा बनाकर ऑयली स्किन पर लगायें पांच सात मिनट तक इसको लगा रहने दे फिर ठंडे पानी से चेहरे को धो लें।

13. दूध
तैलीय त्वचा से मुक्ति, दूध भी अत्याधिक तेल हटाने में आपकी मदद करता है। चेहरे को दूध से धोना काफी अच्छा उपचार है क्योंकि इससे त्वचा का वह तेल भी निकलता है जो कि काफी समय से त्वचा से चिपका हुआ होता है। इस प्रक्रिया के बाद त्वचा पर हल्का सा दूध लगाएं और अच्छे से धो लें।

14. हार्ड केमिकल से बचें
मेकअप के सामानों में मौजूद कठोर केमिकल्स त्वचा के तेल की मात्रा में वृद्धि करते हैं। इसलिए उत्कृष्ट कोटि के सॉफ्ट मेकअप ही करें।

Hello you must have noticed it before your menses time, if you have a lot of anger, mood swings problems before fifteen days, starting your menstrual periods then you are suffering from premenstrual syndrome. It is very common now a days, it is due to deficiency of essential nutrients in dieat and lack of execise. You should start taking proper nutrition and do some execise daily which resolve this problem. Homoeopathic medicines have wonders in it.

Best Treatments For Anti-Aging!

Best Treatments For Anti-Aging!

Make up alone cannot hide your age. To truly look younger, you may want to shift your focus on anti-aging products and techniques, which are available in plenty of options. However, most people have a fixed mindset that all anti-aging products are expensive while it is not necessarily true.

So, here we have come up with a list of 7 budget friendly anti-aging treatment techniques:

  1. Microdermabrasion: This process removes dry skin and smoothes skin texture. It also minimizes damage from sun spots and releases trapped oil. Microdermabrasion is an outpatient technique that involves exfoliating and vacuuming the flaky dead skin.
  2. Chemical Peels: There are a number of different chemical peels available today. The peel most suitable to you will depend on the issues that need to be addressed. A peel involves the removal of the top most layer of skin and exposing the layer below it. This helps remove hyperpigmentation, sun spots and scarring.
  3. Botox: Botox injections are commonly used to fight the formation of wrinkles and fine lines associated with aging. A botox injection contains purified toxins that do not allow muscles to contract and hence reduce fine lines on the forehead and around the eyes.
  4. Collagen fillers: Collagen is a protein that keeps the skin elastic and firm. Collagen production is inversely proportional to age. This causes a loss of volume in the face leading to the creation of sunken spots. Collagen injections can be used to fill in these spaces and even out skin levels.
  5. Latisse: With age you could also lose your eye lashes. Latisse is an effective way to re-grow them and have longer and thicker eyelashes.
  6. Sclerotherapy: Varicose veins also become more prominent and unsightly with age. Sclerotherapy is the use of saline injections that turns the veins into scar tissue that eventually fades. In some cases sclerotherapy can be carried out by using lasers depending up on the size of the veins and how close they are to the surface.
  7. Laser resurfacing: This can be used to reduce wrinkles, blemishes and acne scars. It involves focusing short, concentrated pulsating beams of light at irregular skin to remove layers of skin. Laser resurfacing can be done either with a CO2 laser or an erbium laser.

Depending on the issues being addressed and the effects desired, each of these procedures may need to be performed more than once. This will affect the final price and hence it is essential to understand your treatment options completely before getting started with it.

Stop the lipstick usage and give time for your lips to recover naturally. Have lots of water (maintain good hydration - 8-10 glasses of water ). Eat healthy and natural food. Avoid steroid creams.

Vitiligo is a genetic disorder triggered by indigestion and stressful conditions. There is always a confusion in patients mind regarding choosing right treatment approach for vitiligo. Every patient has 3 choices: 1.Allopathy - gives quick results but is not very safe for long term use. 2.Homeopathy- is safe but very slow and in most of cases it can not stop the spread of disease i.e old patches show some recovery but new white patches continue to come even while using the medication. Ayurvedic herbal medicines are used to purify blood and stop the spread of disease and external application are capable of quick repigmentation. We have integrated external Allopathic applications with internal Ayurvedic medication to give fast and long lasting results. For detailed queries like: 1. Causes of vitiligo 2. Is it genetic or can it spread to next generation 3. Causes of spread of disease after it remains stable for some years 4. Should we use homeopathy, allopathy or ayurveda. You can send pictures of the affected area. After reviewing the case.

Homeopathic medicines have shown great results in cases of melasma or chloasma or blemishes or pigmentation. They help to better the problem from its root slowly and gradually. Homeopathy believes that the use of creams and ointments in skin disorders leads to the suppression (temporary removal) of the main symptoms of the internal disease which is done in the conventional or allopathic treatment. In allopathic treatment only creams are used to treat the condition and the internal problem is overlooked. The melasma spots may become lighter temporarily but they come back and can be even worse with these creams and lotions. Homeopathy concurs that skin disorders are to be treated from within. A well-prescribed medicine not only takes care of hyper pigmentation but also treats as a whole and improves general health as well. You can easily take an online consultation for further treatment guidance and permanent cure without any side effects

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) - Know Everything About It!

MD - Dermatology , Venereology & Leprosy, MD, MBBS

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) - Know Everything About It!

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a concentrate of platelet-rich plasma protein derived from whole blood, centrifuged to remove red blood cells. It has a greater concentration of growth factors and other cytokines that can stimulate healing of soft tissue and joints. The concentration of growth factors can be 5 to 10 times greater (or richer) than whole blood and has been used to encourage a brisk healing response across several specialities, in particular dentistry, orthopaedics and dermatology. Once this is accomplished, the concentrated platelets are re-injected into the damaged area like the knees, elbows, shoulders, hips and even Achilles tendons.

PRP therapy is a relatively new procedure - It was first developed in the 1970s and first used in Italy in 1987 in an open heart surgery procedure, but scientific and medical research shows that it is safe to perform. Because of that, it’s steadfastly on its way to becoming the primary means of treatment in many different medical fields such as cosmetic surgery, dentistry, sports medicine and pain management, most commonly treating hair loss (and other things, like injuries). Platelet Rich Plasma Treatment is frequently called stem cell treatment due to the fact that it behaves as bringing in cells from a person’s own body, which can then actually differentiate into either tendon, cartilage, or ligament cells.

Use of PRP in Dermatology
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) helps you harness the natural aesthetic powers of your own platelets to augment your facial rejuvenation. When done properly, PRP creates impressive results both as an isolated procedure or when incorporated into a treatment plan with hyaluronic acid fillers, neuromodulators, volume restoration and technology. The major advantage is it can be done in the clinician's office and produces virtually no downtime in the treatment of wrinkles, melasma, and acne scars. Exceptionally, there is some downtime when it is used to treat the lower eyelids. The aesthetic benefits it generates are dramatic!

Skin Rejuvenation and Ageing
The goal of PRP skin rejuvenation therapy is to improve skin tone and texture, tighten skin, and soften lines and pores. The PRP, injected into specific areas of the skin, act as a matrix that promotes your own collagen to grow, regenerates tissue, and thus acts as to naturally smooth and tighten the skin. Results begin to show 3-4 weeks after the treatment session and continue to improve with time. Three treatment sessions are generally recommended, spaced 1-2 months apart, to achieve the best outcome. In this way, PRP softens wrinkles and creating smoother skin texture and tone, thus making you look younger!

Acne, Scar and Ulcer Treatment
PRP is used to correct pitted acne scars on the skin. You may have heard about this acne scar treatment technique, which is also known as the “Vampire Facial,” as it has gained popularity amongst celebrities and beauty insiders. Once the platelet-rich blood is injected into sites on the face with acne scars, the concentrated platelets release a host of beneficial growth factors that help to promote healing and stimulate regrowth of collagen and elastin. PRP can also been used as an adjuvant for improving the viability of grafts for the treatment of recalcitrant ulcers, with good results.

PRP might not be a panacea or universal cure, but it could turn out to be a miracle treatment nonetheless! If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Dermatologist.

Enlarged Prostate: Signs and Symptoms of It!

DNB (Urology), MS - General Surgery, MBBS
Urologist, Delhi
Enlarged Prostate: Signs and Symptoms of It!

The prostate gland in males surrounds the urethra, through which urine and sperm are passed out of the body. Its function is to secrete a fluid, which provides nourishment to the sperm. It is about the shape of a walnut and is present between the pubic bone and the rectum.

As a man crosses 40, the prostate gland begins to increase in size due to an increase in the number of cells. This is known as hyperplasia. The condition is usually benign and therefore the name benign prostate hyperplasia (BPH). As it continues to grow, there is an increased pressure on the urethra. Therefore, there can be problems with urination. The bladder, being a muscular organ, compensates to some extent and so the problems with urination are mostly managed. If left untreated, this can continue to be a major problem and the bladder may not be able to compensate. In men who are 60-plus, BPH is very common.

Signs and symptoms 

  1. One of the initial symptoms of BPH is when the urine stream begins to grow weak.
  2. There could also be a reduced speed of passing urine.
  3. Men with BPH never have a feeling of complete emptying of the bladder.
  4. On the other hand, there is also a constant difficulty in initiating a urine stream. There could be intermittent breaks in the urine stream.
  5. The person may feel the need to strain to initiate the stream and to ensure complete emptying.
  6. There could be dribbling of urine after passing urine.
  7. The duration between two bathroom visits can constantly reduce, with the constant urge to urinate.
  8. There is a constant urge to visit the bathroom, which is more common in the night. One of the most annoying features of BPH is the walking up at night to urinate, but with an inability to initiate a stream and an inability to completely empty the bladder, it leaves the person very irritated and frustrated.
  9. There could be blood in the urine. In fact, blood in the urine accompanied by fever, chills, nausea and vomiting are indications of an emergency.
  10. There could be blockage of urine completely, if the enlargement is quite severe.

Diagnosis
If you are having any of these symptoms, then the doctor will first test for an enlarged prostate through a digital rectal exam. Then a test is done to check a chemical called prostate specific antigen. Increased levels of this chemical is almost always indicative of BPH. In addition, X-rays and scanning may be used to confirm diagnosis. 

Treatment

Blood test cancer prostate is PSA. It is done only if there is a suspicion of cancer. Most cases can be managed by medication. Surgical removal procedure needs a minimum of 2 to 3 days. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Urologist.
