I am 19 years old.
A facial sauna is useful in treating milia and unclogging pores as it helps loosen and remove dead skin cells and debris. Soak a clean towel in hot water and wring out the excess of water. Place the towel on your face for a few minutes and then remove it. Do it daily for 7 days at least. If you don't get the desired results, you may come back and consult me.

I have started getting dark circles around my eyes .I am taking medication for depression. Please recommend a suitable remedy and what is the reason behind the appearance of the dark circles

Vaidya Visharad
Sexologist, Narnaul
Dear, Dark circles or black circles under the eyes are rarely caused by temporary circumstances and are more difficult to treat than bags under the eyes. They are often the result of some combination of the following: lack of sleep, chronic stress, menstrual disorders, pregnancy, poor diet and medications. For others, dark circles are a hereditary trait. People who suffer from allergies and sensitivities often have a bigger problem with dark circles as well. Visit us at www.Malhotraayurveda.Com

Bride To Be - Know How You Can Get That Beautiful & Radiant Skin!

Bride To Be - Know How You Can Get That Beautiful & Radiant Skin!

There are multiple issues that have to be addressed by the bride and groom while planning their wedding. Wedding days are very special and every bride wants to stand out and look great. It is important for the to-be bride to follow certain procedures and avoid any dermatological problems such as scars, wrinkles, acne and spots. Dealing with skin conditions such as acne is very painful and frustrating. Hence, to attain a glowing skin on your wedding day, various medical spas offer photo facials these days. The photo facial method is very reliable and safe and noticeable results can be gained in no time.

Use of Simple and Effective Methods

These days rigorous skin care routines are not made use of to attain a flawless skin. There are a variety of other procedures that to-be brides can make use of and glow on their special day. It is best to visit a dermatologist to treat skin problems and follow procedures recommended by them that do not cause any damage to your skin. A wide range of the finest treatments, healing sessions and therapies are suggested by them to solve dermatological problems that bring about a new perspective for the to-be bride. Aesthetic procedures are suggested by dermatology surgeons these days as these do not cause any side-effects. Some of the procedures include phototherapy, laser rejuvenation, fillers, micro-skin polishing and NIR.

Procedures to Treat Dermatological Problems

  1. Phototherapy: In phototherapy, a series of intense pulsed light is used. The treatment is very beneficial in improving the appearance of your skin. It is through this treatment that the age-spots, photo-ageing, sun-damaged skin and skin texture are improved.
  2. Laser Rejuvenation: Fractional laser is a safe and excellent procedure that brides can opt for to eliminate age spots, acne scars and eliminate surface wrinkles. The time required for the recovery is minimal and the procedure can be opted for by individuals with all skin types.
  3. Fillers: The bride and groom both desire a healthy, glowing skin and are very when it comes to using beauty treatments available these days. There are injectable fillers available that work effectively in treating scars and acne. The size and contour of the lips can be enhanced with this treatment. The injectable fillers that are made use of include Juviderm XC and Restylane.
  4. Micro skin Polishing: It is a simple and effective procedure which is beneficial in eliminating dull, dry and flaky skin. Through this procedure, smooth and flawless skin can be attained. The technique used is like an exfoliating scrub that combines aluminum oxide crystals with soothing botanicals and diatomaceous earth. The surface cells are exfoliated and the biological renewal process of the skin is accelerated which helps in treating skin problems. There are injections used even for fairness and these provide the skin with a healthy sheen.

Apart from the above-mentioned procedures, brides can also go for.
Laser hair reduction: 
It is for brides who suffer from excessive hair growth
Chemical peels: Special peels are available that brides can go for rather than facials as at times facials do not suit everyone 
Microdermabrasion: Especially, recommended for brides who are extremely sensitive to chemical agents present in facials and peels

Things one can do at home to make sure to maintain skin health

  1. Exfoliate the skin: Getting rid of the dead skin cells is a vital aspect of a healthy skin care routine. The skin benefits of exfoliation are immense. In addition to removing the dead skin cells, it also plays a significant role in enhancing the blood circulation, thereby ensuring a glowing and healthy looking skin. Other skin problems such as blemishes, skin pigmentation, sun tans, are also taken care off by exfoliating the skin twice a week. There are many good quality exfoliators available in the market (get the one that suits your skin type). One can also go for natural exfoliators such as honey, yogurt, papaya, or even lemon juice and sugar.
  2. Keep the skin hydrated: One of the factors responsible for skin problems is built-up of harmful toxins in the body. A well-hydrated body plays a significant role in eliminating the toxins from the body. If you wish to steal the show on your wedding, drink water and healthy fluids at regular time intervals. Coconut water, a rich source of Vitamin C can work wonders for the skin.
  3. Clean your face: With the wedding and the associated rituals, the to-be- bride often gets pressed for time. However, no matter how tired, never sleep with your makeup on. The chemicals used in the various make-ups can damage your skin (acne, skin rashes, breakouts, to name a few). As part of a healthy skin care, one should clean the face twice daily (morning and at night). Use a good quality face wash and cleanser that suits your skin. Also, Facials and skin clean-ups once a month are also advised. The application of various face packs (readymade or homemade) can be equally helpful.
  4. Use a Sunscreen: Whether at home or outside, sunny or cloudy, always make a habit to apply a sunscreen. A good sunscreen protects the skin from a plethora of problems including skin cancer (often triggered by the harmful UV rays), suntans, sunburns, premature skin aging, to name a few.
  5. Sleep well: With all the wedding preparations, sleep is the last thing on a bride's mind. This mistake can cost dearly. Daily 6-8 hours of sleep acts as a catalyst keeping the healthy and glowing.
  6. Eat healthily: Foods rich in antioxidants, omega-3 fatty acids are beneficial for the skin. Tomatoes, green tea, brown rice, berries, fruits and vegetables rich in Vitamin C, pumpkin, avocados, fish and seafood, kale, potatoes, nuts (almonds, walnuts, raisins, pistachios), beetroot, to name a few, can do your skin a world of good.

It is for the best that brides make use of these simple dermatological procedures that are safe and do not cause any side-effects. These dermatological procedures ensure that brides look their best on their special day. However, in case you suffer from a specific skin condition, you must consult a dermatologist or a beauty expert to deal with specific skin problems. 

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Rosemary essential oil has been traditionally used to increase circulation to the scalp. Add a few drops per dollop of shampoo or, better yet, add a few drops of rosemary to coconut oil and massage your scalp regularly.

Allergies - Homeopathic Treatment For It!

Allergies - Homeopathic Treatment For It!

Most people, at some point of time, have been affected by allergic reactions. An allergic reaction is a hypersensitive reaction triggered by an Allergen (substance that has the potential to trigger an allergic reaction). Allergies can be Perennial or Seasonal. Perennial allergies are not season specific and can occur throughout the year.

Seasonal allergies, on the other hand, are season specific, for example, Hay fever (triggered by pollens) is a common allergic reaction during the spring season. 

A number of substances can act as a potential allergen, triggering a hypersensitive reaction in a person. The allergens can be 

  1. Environmental factors, such as pollen, dust mites, sunlight, fur of some animals, or mold
  2. Certain foodstuffs like milk and dairy products, peanuts, wheat, soy, tomatoes, eggplant, alcohol or shellfish.
  3. Synthetic and natural substances like pesticides, nickel, latex
  4. Certain medications like sulfa drugs, penicillin
  5. Animal stings; mostly wasps and bees, can also trigger an allergic reaction.

The allergic reactions affecting a person can vary depending on the source of the allergen. It can be a skin allergy, nasal and cough allergy, food allergy or a dust allergy. The best way to treat an allergic reaction is to identify the allergen involved. Homeopathic treatments are very effective against allergic reactions. Though time consuming; homeopathic treatment provides long lasting and permanent relief. In addition, the homeopathic medicines have no harmful side effects. No wonder, more and more people are going for homeopathic treatments.

The following homeopathic medicines, if taken regularly and diligently, can successfully treat a number of allergic reactions:

  • Arsenic Album: Many people suffer from watery eyes, continuous sneezing, running nose accompanied by a burning sensation. These all are signs of a nasal allergy. Arsenic Album is an effective homeopathic option against nasal allergy.
  • Sulphur: It provides great relief from skin allergies. Sulphur is a boon for people suffering from very dry and itchy skin.
  • Natrum Mur: It is an effective homeopathic (natural) medicine against nasal and skin allergies.
  • Pulsatilla, Natrum Carb and Aethusa Cynapium: These homeopathic medicines act as a blessing for people suffering from milk allergy.
  • Urtica Urens: If you are allergic to shellfish, Urtica Urens is just for you.
  • Bromium and Lycopersicum: they are very effective against dust allergies. Arsenic Album is also an excellent option.

There are people who are allergic to certain hair dyes. Arsenic Album and Sulphur effectively deals with such allergies. Natrum Mur and Sepia cannot be neglected either. Do not allow allergies to make your life miserable. Switch over to the homeopathic treatments and enjoy a stress free life, sans the allergies.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

PORES TREATMENT 1.Wash your face before you go to bed each night. Going to bed wearing still wearing makeup, as well as any dirt and debris that may have collected on your face during the day, is a sure way to clog your pores. If your pores routinely look large, this could be part of the problem. Get into the habit of cleansing your face each and every night so your pores will be less likely to get clogged. Use warm water, rather than hot or cold, so your skin will be less likely to get irritated. Pat your face dry with a soft towel. 2. Use a cleanser that doesn't irritate your skin. Many cleansers contain harsh ingredients that cause dry, irritated skin. When your pores are irritated, they look wider and more "open." In order to keep them closed, it's best to use a gentle cleanser that washes away dirt without causing your skin to dry out.( PREFERABLY USE CLEANSING MILK ( BAKSON) Choose a cleanser that's sulfate free. Sulfates are harsh cleansers that can strip the skin of its natural oils and leave it dry and itchy. Avoid using a cleanser with scrubbing beads on a daily basis. The beads could be irritating to your skin, and should only be used sparingly. 3. Try the oil cleansing method. It's becoming increasingly popular to replace soap with oil as a facial cleanser. It might sound counterintuitive to use oil to wash your face, but it's actually quite effective. The oil binds with your skin's natural oils and gently washes away dirt, sweat, and makeup without the need for harsh chemicals. Just smooth it over your skin and use a wet washcloth to wipe it off using a circular motion. Here are a few oil combinations to try out: For combination skin: Mix 1/2 teaspoon castor oil and 2 teaspoons olive oil. For dry skin: Mix 1/4 teaspoon castor oil and 2 teaspoons coconut or olive oil. 4. Splash your face with water in the morning. After getting a good night's sleep, it feels refreshing to splash your face with water. Since you don't wake up wearing makeup, there's no need to wash your face using a cleanser; in fact, it's better for your skin to give it a break and just use water. Pat your face dry with a soft towel. 5. Exfoliate every few days. Dead skin builds up on the surface of your skin, mixes with sweat and dirt, and ends up clogging pores. Exfoliating your skin regularly will prevent your pores from getting clogged so quickly. The result will be closed, small-looking pores as opposed to clogged pores that look big and open. One of the best ways to exfoliate is by simply using a washcloth. Wet your face and scrub it gently using circular motions. ( Preferably USE APRICOT SCRUB ( BAKSON) Facial scrubs are also good. Try a mixture of ground almonds and honey. 6. UNCLOGGING PORES (A) Do a steam treatment. This is a great way to open your pores so you can get rid of the small plugs of dead skin and dirt that are making them appear large and open. Heat a small pot of water until it begins to steam, then hold your face over it and drape a towel over your head. Let the steam bathe your face for three to five minutes, then rinse your face with cool water. Steaming your face opens up your pores, allowing them to become unclogged. Rinsing afterward gets rid of the debris, leaving your pores fresh and clean. Use cool water to close your pores. (B) Use a MUD PACK. MUD is a natural element that draws impurities out of the skin as it dries. When you do a MUD mask, dry mud is mixed with water to form a paste, which you smooth over your face. Let it dry completely, then rinse it away with cool water. • Many Mud packs are avaliable in stores but I will prefer MUD PACK ( BAKSON) 7.TONING AND MOISTURISING (A) Always rinse and tone when you're finished cleansing. Whether you steam or use a mask, always remember to rinse away the dirt when you're finished. Follow up by using a toner on your face. Toner helps restore your skin's pH balance after cleansing, giving it a youthful, glowing appearance and helping to close pores. (B) Avoid toners with chemicals that could inflame your skin. Beauty supply stores carry many different toners. Look for one that works with your skin type, but avoid toners with excess chemicals, perfumes, and dyes that could irritate or dry out your skin. These toners will do more harm than good, and your pores will end up looking larger instead of smaller. Avoid toners that contain alcohol, which can dry out the skin. Avoid toners that contain glycerin and fragrances, since these can cause allergic reactions. (C) Try apple cider vinegar. Apple cider vinegar is made from fermented apples, and is a gentle, natural toner for any type of skin. Mix 1 tablespoon of apple cider vinegar and 1 tablespoon of water, then use a cotton ball to apply it to your skin after rinsing. Let your skin dry, then moisturize it. (D) Try a honey mask to tone your skin. Plain, raw honey is an excellent toner for skin. Simply spread some on your face and let it sit for about ten minutes, then rinse it away with warm water. Your pores will tighten up and your face will feel fresh and youthful. (E) Finish your routine by moisturizing. Using a good face moisturizer( ALOVERA CREAM ( BAKSON) is key to keeping your pores closed, since dry skin can become irritated and lead to large-looking pores. Chose an alcohol-free moisturizer that doesn't contain perfumes and excess chemicals so you make sure you don't irritate your skin.
