There are many possible treatments, such as chemical peels, dermabrasion and laser therapies. But it is advised to try some simple, natural homemade remedies initially which will also help to reduce the appearance of spots and acne on your face. Lemons have vitamin C that can lighten dark spots on your face. It’s easy to apply. Potatoes have natural bleaching properties that help fade spots, scars as well as blemishes. The starch in potato helps reduce pigmentation, while the enzymes in it promote healthy skin. Buttermilk is also beneficial in getting rid of dark spots. Aloe vera has many healing properties and is a great natural dark spot corrector. Its gel has polysaccharides that stimulate the growth of new skin cells to help reduce dark spots and heal scars. Sandalwood is another effective option. The natural oils in it can help clear black spots naturally. It even adds a healthy glow to your skin. Turmeric is another popular skin-lightening agent that can be used to get rid of black spots on your face. You may consult a dermatologist if you do not get desired results with these remedies.

Role Of Different Homeopathic Medicines In Treating Acne Scars!

The skin has sebaceous glands producing sebum, which offers protection and is essential for maintaining a healthy skin. Acne is caused by overactive sebaceous glands and is more common in teenagers and adolescents. In people with severe acne, these could leave marks, which are not just a cosmetic issue, but also affect the personality of the person and reduce his or her self-esteem and confidence levels.
Acne scars are treated by homeopathy in safe, effective, and gentle ways by addressing the problem internally. It believes in restoring the underlying balance in the body and not just removing the scars. Treatment would be done after a detailed case study for accompanying symptoms and clinical examination. Self-medication is to be avoided, as what worked for one person may not work for another.

Some of the effective medicines to cure acne are listed below:

Hi. First we should know what is skin & skin infections? Pimples or acne vulgaris? Skin is a THERMO-REGULATORY organ in our body. Basically whenever you have get allergens in your body through perspiration or sweating automatically Toxins will thrown out. But when you get any skin infections it is actually because of lower IMMUNE (Antibodies -igG, igM etc) response of your body. First diagnose whether it is allergic dermatitis or fungal infections or Eczema or psoriasis -it's a acute ringworm or else any chronic disease. Because chronic disease like psoriasis or Eczema are deep skin layer diseases. First we should know beneath the SKIN there are deep skin layers like EPIDERMIS and DERMIS .so when your allergies goes into deep layers it's called as chronic skin diseases. Normally every skin disease starts as some fungal or bacterial infection then you apply any ointments or any medicated lotions -it will clear for some days then whenever you stop medication it will reappear after sometime because your infections will supressed in deep layers. That's why it will reappear again &again. So first consult a homeopathy doctor after diagnosing he will give a constitutional remedies for permanent cure without any side effects.

Use a face wash containing salicylic acid and a gel containing Benzoyl peroxide 2.5% at night whenever you have active acne. Shave less often and let your beard grow a little long. This will allow the hair to grow thicker. It may make your skin feel more itchy and oily initially but eventually you will have thicker hair. Please visit any dermatologist near you to discuss your options in more detail.

Hi lybrate-user, for healthy skin need healthy digestion. Your medical condition was indignation and heartburn. Hair fall and dandruff also. First improve your digestion. You take more water it's good bt not enough. You take healthy home made diet. Take one coconut water per day. Avoid cold drinks, packaged food, junk food etc. Ghee (clarified butter) is good for you. Not only face wash or cream give you healthy skin. Everyday, pranayama is also good for you. Ayurveda medicine, yoga and diet can solve your problems permanently.
