Almost every person salivates over desserts and sweets. One does not need a special occasion to get their sweet tooth going. While the lip smacking sugary delight might impress the taste buds, it is sure to affect the health in a big way. If you thought that sugar was only bad for your waistline and general health, then you need to know that it is equally harmful for your skin. In fact, it can lead to serious dermatological conditions.
Harmful effects of sugar on the skin
A lot of what we eat reflects on our body externally. A number of internal changes can influence the external appearance of the body. Excessive intake of carbohydrates, starch and sugar can have an adverse effect on the skin. It can also accelerate the ageing process. But what triggers these complications needs to be understood and discussed in detail.
Carbohydrates can be simple or complex. Simple carbohydrates (cake, bread; to name a few) break down and convert to glucose rapidly. Increased glucose level implies increased insulin level, and causes inflammation, which affects the whole body. The enzymes produced during inflammation breaks down important proteins, namely elastin and collagen, leading to wrinkles and saggy skin.
Acne problems mainly arise from Glycation (the process through which digested sugar attaches permanently to the collagen). Glycation plays a significant role in accelerating the ageing process.
Complex carbohydrates, on the other hand, is good for health. When ingested, complex carbohydrates break down at a much slower rate. As a result, there is no abnormal increase in the insulin level.
Corrective measures to check the harmful effects of sugar on the skin:
With a little care and preventive measures, the deleterious effects of sugar on the skin can be minimised.
- Supplement your diet with foods rich in antioxidants. Lean proteins, fibrous foods and diets rich in good fats are highly recommended. Include beans and nuts that have low glycemic value in your diet. Drink plenty of water.
- Food items containing high amount of saturated fats (cheese, ice creams, fried foods; to name a few), and with high glycemic value should be strictly avoided.
- Do not compromise with your sleep. A sound sleep and a stress-free life is the mantra to a glowing and youthful skin.
- Practice meditation and yoga diligently. The rewarding and positive outcomes will leave you in awe.
- Do not skip your meals or indulge in overeating. Have small servings at regular intervals.

One amongst many skin disorders, psoriasis affects nearly 2.8% of the Indian population. It is an autoimmune chronic skin condition, which causes rapid increase of skin cells. Due to this rapid build-up of skin cells, the surface of your skin becomes dry, scaly and flaky.
Types of Psoriasis-
- Plaque psoriasis- the most common type of psoriasis that is visible on the elbows, scalp, knees, and lower back. This particular form of psoriasis causes inflamed, red patches on the skin that are covered with silvery scales (plaques).
- Guttate psoriasis- appears on the thighs, legs and arms, trunk
- Inverse psoriasis- affects the skin under breasts, around genitals, armpit and groin
- Pustular psoriasis- affects smaller areas like the fingertips
- Erythrodermic psoriasis- most uncommon type of psoriasis covering the entire body
What triggers Psoriasis?
Psoriasis refers to an autoimmune condition. It occurs when the white blood cells (known as ‘T’ cells), instead of attacking and fighting the invading bacteria, attack your skin cells mistakenly.
Other factors triggering this condition includes-
- Skin infections or strep throat
- Skin injuries
- Alcohol consumption
- Deficiency of vitamin-D
- Certain medications
Psoriasis can also occur as the result of a genetic predisposition.
- Inflamed, red patches on the skin
- Dry, flaky skin prone to bleeding
- Burning, itching sensation around the patches
- Pitted, thick nails
- Swollen joints
- Slivery scales on the red patches
Treating Psoriasis with Homeopathy-
Homeopathy plays a vital role in curing various skin problems including Psoriasis.
- It not only palliates the symptoms of the disease but also particularly aims towards rectifying the underlying cause.
- Homeopathic medicines are prepared from natural substances and extracts of medicinal plants- bark of spurge olive, potassium sulfate etc. The topical creams soothe your skin, reduce itching and inflammation and rejuvenate your skin naturally.
- Homeopathy can work wonders in situations where other conventional methods fail to yield effective results. For instance, certain medications or drugs may result in flare-ups or other adverse effects. But when it comes to Homeopathy, you can rest assured that the remedies are completely safe and long lasting.
In nearly 90% of all skin disorder cases, Homeopathy has shown remarkable results in treating the condition. So if you are looking for a permanent cure, opt for Homeopathic treatment. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

A corn (or clavus, plural clavi or clavuses) is a distinctively shaped callus of dead skin that usually occurs on thin or glabrous (hairless and smooth) skin surfaces, especially on the dorsal surface of toes or fingers. They can sometimes occur on the thicker skin of the palms or bottom of the feet.
Corns form when the pressure point against the skin traces an elliptical or semi-elliptical path during the rubbing motion, the center of which is at the point of pressure, gradually widening. If there is constant stimulation of the tissue producing the corns, even after the corn is surgically removed, the skin may continue to grow as a corn.
Signs and symptoms
The hard part at the center of the corn resembles a barley seed, that is like a funnel with a broad raised top and a pointed bottom. Because of their shape, corns intensify the pressure at the tip and can cause deep tissue damage and ulceration. Hard corns are especially problematic for people with insensitive skin due to damaged nerves (e.g., in people with diabetes mellitus). The scientific name for a corn is heloma(plural helomata). A hard corn is called a heloma durum, while a soft corn is called a heloma molle.
The location of soft corns tends to differ from that of hard corns. Hard corns occur on dry, flat surfaces of skin. Soft corns (frequently found between adjacent toes) stay moist, keeping the surrounding skin soft. The corn's center is not soft, however, but indurated.
To exclude other differential diagnoses, a skin biopsy may be taken.
A popular method is to use a corn plaster, a felt ring with a core of salicylic acid that relieves pressure and erodes the hard skin. However, if an abnormal pressure source remains, the corn generally returns. If the source of any abnormal pressure is detected, this may be avoided, usually through a change to more comfortable footwear or with various types of shoe inserts or footwear with extra toe space. In extreme cases correcting gait abnormalities may be required. If no other treatment is effective, surgery may be performed.
