Skin Health - How Diet Can Enhance It?

Beauty is something which is a lot more than just skin deep. However, that really does not mean that adequate care is not taken for a person’s skin. So what does that mean when it comes to what a person has to do?

Quite a few things, as a matter of fact!

  • To start with, a person who is interested in making sure that his or her skin is clear should focus on making sure that the diet he or she is following does everything that is beneficial for the skin.
  • There are quite a few foods which do go a pretty long way in making sure that the skin stays healthy. Foods which are rich in Vitamin C are good to have in order to be able to achieve this purpose.
  • When a person eats, he or she should make an effort to maximise the diversity on his or her plate. This can take the form of a range of vegetables or fruits. To make good use of an example, carrots are great. All a person needs to do in order to harness their beneficial effects is to just cut them up and mix it with other vegetables and make it a salad.

Everyday foods for great skin!

  1. Spinach and swiss chard are also some good options to incorporate in a meal. If a person does not like the taste of spinach, pumpkin does serve to be a reasonable replacement.
  2. Out of all the different types of fats there are, Omega-3 fats are the best and some fats can cause a lot of trouble to the skin. Fish are quite high in omega 3 fats and this is a great dietary option to reduce the adverse impact which it had on the skin as a result of too much exposure to the sun. If a person happens to be vegetarian, some other good options would be in the form of walnuts and ground flaxseed.
  3. Rather than eating processed foods, it is better to eat foods which are whole in nature as they can do a lot of good for the skin of the person. Yoghurt, nuts, and multigrain breads are good options which fall under the whole foods category.

All in all, as long as a person is careful about the foods that he consumes, there is really no reason at all as to why his or her skin cannot be in perfect health.

Know More About Ingrown Hairs!

Ingrown hair refers to a situation in which a part of the body hair which has been trimmed, shaved or tweezed grows back into the skin in a curled form. This sometimes causes painful and discomforting skin conditions such as swelling, bump formation and chronic pain in the area from where the hair was removed.

This condition is mostly common among people who have very tightly curled hair on their entire bodies. Among men, the most affected areas are cheeks, chin and neck. Additionally, they can also appear in cases of men who regularly shave their head. In case of women, ingrown hairs in common in areas like armpits, pubic region and legs. The most common signs of this condition are enlisted below.
1. Small skin bumps (papules)
2. Small, pus-filled, blister-like lesions (pustules)
3. Hyperpigmentation (skin darkening)
4. Long lasting and chronic pain
5. Itching

Ingrown hair might also occur if you do the following activities:

1. Pulling your skin while shaving your body hair can give rise to ingrown hair. This, in turn, allows the shaved hair particles to penetrate back into the skin without growing outwards.
2. Tweezing of hair can also lead to the hair particles to grow inwards instead of growing outwards

Some common complications associated with this condition are:

1. Bacterial and fungal infections that usually happen from scratching of the affected area
2. Hyperpigmentation of the skin which involves an abrupt darkening of the skin areas
3. Permanent scarring of the tissue of the affecting skin

Skin Fillers Or Derma Fillers - Know How They Help In Regaining Youth!

Dermal or skin fillers are natural or synthetic substances that are used to make a particular area on the face look plump, in other words, 'fill' the skin produce younger-looking, firmer, plumper skin. Usually used as injections, they plump up the skin just enough to make the wrinkle or the fine lines disappear. While Botox is also used as an injection, its intended use and area of use is different from fillers. Botox is most often used in the outer corners of the eyes and around the forehead.

Fillers are used in other areas mentioned below:

1. The laugh lines or the nasolabial folds, lines that run from the nose to the mouth. Fillers can help smooth out the creases and add volume to this area.

2. It can make the cheeks look fuller and provide a youthful appearance. Especially in the lower cheek areas, the fat pads shift constantly giving a hollowed-out appearance. Fillers can be used in this area to produce younger appearance with fuller cheeks

3. The undereye area, where there are depressions or hollows can produce a sagging, elderly look. Fillers used here can improve the appearance markedly

4. Even out scars resulting from chicken pox or acne

5. Even out irregularities due to shifting fat pads, especially in the temple area or the lower cheek areas.

6. Adding volume to thin lips, which again can make one appear old and aged

7. Smoothing out vertical lines around the lip edges, which again produce an elderly appearance

These are some uses of dermal fillers. As mentioned, they can be natural or synthetic substances.

Natural fillers usually have hyaluronic acid and are usually effective immediately, but last for about 6 months to a year. In some people, subsequent filler injections produce effective results and the interval between injections may continue to increase.

Synthetic ones, on the other hand, contain collagen or other similar chemicals but can produce more long-lasting results. They can be semi-permanent or permanent.

When to use fillers

A great skin care regime can help delay the onset of ageing changes and also reduce the severity. However, despite it, after a certain stage, there would definitely be changes arising out of muscle movement, fat loss, chronic sun damage, ageing skin, etc. When these begin to bother you, then dermal fillers are a good option to consider.

However, a detailed discussion with your dermatologist including aspects of both should ensue. From the doctor's end, check for his skills, experience, technique used, testimonials and expenses. Discuss your skin type, risk tolerance, and potential side effects before choosing a treatment option. Once you opt for dermal fillers, the routine skin care with well-tested products needs to continue, including aggressive care against sun damage.

What Type Of Damage Can Sun Do To Your Skin?

What Type Of Damage Can Sun Do To Your Skin?

While the sun is necessary for our skin and overall health, excessive exposure often results in many skin problems. Age spots, which are actually sunspots, blemishes, pigmentation and sunburns are just a few of the sun related damages that your skin may have to face.

Sunscreen is your best friend outdoors

Sunscreen should be worn at all times whenever you go outdoors. Also if you plan to be outdoors for too long, then reapply sunscreen from time to time as you may need to replenish the protection for your skin. A sunscreen with a SPF count of 30 or above is usually preferred; however, this should completely be determined by the type of skin.

What type of damage can sun do to your skin?

Visible sun related damage to your skin could be any or all of the following:

  1. Skin which is patchy
  2. Dark spots
  3. Uneven skin tone
  4. Age spots

These are primarily manifestations of deep rooted sun related damage caused by one of the following:

  1. Superficial pigmentation: This is a pigmentation problem, which is mostly caused close to the uppermost layer of your skin i.e. the epidermis. This usually ends showing up as age spots and freckles.
  2. Deep hyper-pigmentation: As opposed to superficial pigmentation, deeper pigmentation problems occur when age related damage is the cause and there has been prolonged sun exposure. This requires more detailed treatment and thus topical products such as peels may not be as effective as the damage has been at a deeper layer of the skin.
  3. Brown patches or melasma: Often called the mask of pregnancy as it commonly afflicts expectant women, it may occur in other cases due to hormonal problems as well. It appears as darker patches on your skin within the bridge of the nose, cheeks and forehead. Sun damage aggravates this problem multi fold and thus can make a slight or small problem much worse.

Treatments against sun damage

As mentioned earlier, the best way to reverse sun damage is to use the correct SPF for your skin. A single SPF rating isn’t correct for everyone and it is best to consult a dermatologist to determine what rating would be correct for you. However, some of the other modern treatments you can rely on to reverse and prevent sun damage could be:

  1. Peels that give instant clarity by reducing pigmentation
  2. Reducing complexes such as certain liquid applicants that lessen topical pigmentation
  3. Skin rejuvenating Lasers that provide instant clarity with Laser action
  4. PRP or platelet rich plasma that is derived from the cells of your own body and then used as a serum to be injected into the skin to heighten its self- healing powers.

Sensitive Skin - Know Regime For It!

Sensitive Skin - Know Regime For It!

Sensitive skin can make life miserable. Factors such as environmental and climatic changes, certain beauty products and medications can affect individuals with sensitive skin. There may be skin inflammation, irritation, rashes, redness, dryness and flakiness. The extent of the sensitive reaction can vary from one individual to another. In many cases, it has been observed that sensitive skin appears to be thinner than normal skin. Thus, people with such delicate skin type need to be extra careful. Do not try self-medication. It will make things worse. Always seek expert advice. A specialist knows what is best for your skin. 
People with sensitive skin need to follow some basic skin care regimes

* It is very important to keep a sensitive skin hydrated and moisturised all the time. A dehydrated skin not only appears tighter but also results in extreme skin dryness and irritation. Drink at least 6-8 glasses of water daily. It is very important to flush out the toxins and maintain alkaline skin pH. Avoid taking very hot water or ice baths. The extreme temperatures will do your skin more harm than good. A warm water bath is an excellent option. Apply generous amounts of moisturiser, whenever your skin feels dry and itchy.

* It is best to avoid products that are harsh on your skin. Consult a dermatologist before using products containing alpha hydroxy acids. These are strong acids and their application can lead to skin irritation and rashes. It is a healthy practice to keep your skin clean. However, not all soaps are suitable for sensitive skin. Soaps (strong alkali) are a big no. It is best to use a medicated soap, specially formulated for sensitive skin. To cleanse your face, use a mild (soap free) face wash or a cleanser.

* For people with sensitive skin, it is best not to experiment with the skin care products. Play it safe, stick to the brands you have been using for long. Certain beauty products are strongly fragranced. These can trigger severe skin and allergic reactions. Lanolin, artificial mineral oil and alcohol-containing products are no better. It is best to use natural and herbal skin care products.

* Do not use cosmetics and beauty products beyond a certain period of time. Face powders, silicone based foundations, sunscreen (titanium oxide or zinc oxide based) are best for sensitive skin. These products are known to be less harsh and thus have little or no side effects.

* Before using any products, know the ingredients and chemicals that go into its manufacture.

बादाम भी काला दाग दूर करने में मददगार है-
रातभर के लिए बादाम को पानी में डालकर एब्सोर्ब करने के लिए रख दें. अगली सुबह बादाम को मिक्सर में मिक्स कर लें और एक नरम पेस्ट तैयार कर लें. अगर पेस्ट नरम नहीं हो रहा है तो इसके साथ थोड़ा दूध भी मिला सकते हैं. अब अन्य बची सामग्रीयों को बादाम के पेस्ट में मिला दें. पेस्ट को अच्छे से मिलाने के बाद इसे अपनी स्किन के प्रभावित साईट पर लगाएं. फिर इसे रातभर के लिए त्वचा पर ऐसे ही लगा हुआ छोड़ दें. सुबह में त्वचा को ठंडे पानी से धो लें. हर रात, सोने से पहले इसे दो हफ्ते तक अपनी त्वचा पर लगाएं. दो हफ्ते के बाद इलाज को थोड़ा कम कर दें. फिर इसे आप हफ्ते में दो बार लगा सकते हैं.

लाल प्याज का उपयोग-
प्याज को सबसे पहलें काट कर अलग कर लें. अब इन टुकड़ों को हाथों में लें और फिर उसे प्रभावित हिस्सों पर लगाएं. इसे दस मिनट तक ऐसे ही लगा हुआ रहने दें और फिर अपनी त्वचा को गुनगुने पानी से धो लें. इसके आलावा, आप प्याज को मिक्स करके निचोड़ लें और जूस को अपने प्रभावित हिस्सों पर लगाए. जब तक आपको परिणाम न दिख जाए तब तक पूरे दिन में दो बार इसे ज़रूर लगाएं. प्याज विटामिन सी का सबसे अच्छा स्त्रोत है. इसमें मौजूद एंटीऑक्सीडेंट के गुण काला दाग का इलाज करने में मदद करते हैं.

उपयोग करें आवश्यक तेलों का-
जैतून का तेल, नारियल का तेल, अरंडी का तेल, नीम का तेल या जोजोबा तेल बहुत लाभकारी होता है. इसके अलावा आप इन तेलों को एक साथ मिक्स कर के भी इस्तेमाल कर सकते हैं. इसे लगाने के पहलें अपनी स्किन को साफ़ कर लें और तौलिये से अच्छे से साफ कर लें. अपनी पसंद के तेल से आप अपनी त्वचा पर मसाज करें. कुछ मिनट मसाज करने के बाद आधे घंटे तक इसे ऐसे ही लगा हुआ रहने दें. अब अपनी त्वचा को क्लीन्ज़र से धो लें. इन तेल का उपयोग पूरे दिन में एक बार ज़रूर करें.

काले दाग का इलाज है एलो वेरा-
शहद और एलोवेरा जेल को उचित मात्रा में मिला लें. अब इस मिश्रण को 10 मिनट तक के लिए ऐसे ही छोड़ दें. दस मिनट के बाद अपनी स्किन पर मिश्रण को लगाएं. इसके बाद 20 मिनट तक लगा हुआ छोड़ दें. अब अपनी स्किन को गुनगुने पानी से साफ़ कर लें. इस मिश्रण को दो हफ्ते के लिए पूरे दिन में एक बार ज़रूर लगाएं. त्वचा के प्राकृतिक PH लेवल और तेल के लेवल को छेड़े बिना एलोवेरा को त्वचा को साफ़ करने के लिए जाना जाता है. ये ब्लैक स्पॉट को दूर करता है साथ ही सन लाइट से भी बचाता है.

काला दाग मिटाने के लिए उपयोग करें केला-
केले को इस्तेमाल करने के लिए सबसे पहलें केले को मैश कर लें और तब तक करें जब तक इसकी गुठली बनना कम न हो जाएं. इसके बाद शहद और दूध मिलाएं. फिर पूरी सामग्री मिलाने के बाद एक पेस्ट तैयार कर लें. इस मिश्रण को प्रभावित हिस्सों पर लगाएं. अब इसे स्किन पर आधे घंटे के लिए लगा हुआ छोड़ दें और इसके बाद त्वचा को गर्म पानी से साफ़ कर लें. इसे हफ्ते में दो बार लगाएं. आपको परिणाम तीन हफ़्तों में ही नज़र आने लगेगा. केला एक प्राकृतिक एक्सफोलिएटर की तरह काम करता है जो त्वचा को साफ करता है, जिसकी मदद से काला दाग का इलाज होता है. इसमें विटामिन k और पोटैशियम भी होता है जो त्वचा को नमी देता है साथ ही स्वस्थ भी रखता है.

अपनी त्वचा को सूरज से दूर रखें-
सूरज की रौशनी काला दाग की समस्या को और भी बेकार कर देता है साथ ही मेलानोसाईट को और ज़्यादा बढ़ा देता है. काला दाग बहुत ही आम समस्या है और इसे ठीक होने में थोड़ा समय लगता है. सनस्क्रीन मिनिमम SPF 30 काला दाग को हटाने के लिए खासतौर पर बताई जाती है. इसके अलावा त्वचा को सीधे तौर पर सूरज के सामने न आने दें और अपनी त्वचा को समय समय पर साफ़ करते रहें.

Warts - Homeopathic Treatment For It!

Warts - Homeopathic Treatment For It!

Warts show up in all shapes and sizes. Caused by the human papilloma virus (HPV), they are exceedingly contagious and while they can show up in anybody of all ages, they will probably trouble children and teenagers.

About all warts are harmless however once they appear on conspicuous places such as the face or hands, most individuals will do almost anything to dispose of them.

Contemplating Warts-

Warts are frequently seen as simply a minor nuisance – to expel the wart is to evacuate the issue. Yet, is this totally genuine? No, say homeopaths.

Their presence on top of the skin warns of a more profound weakness or susceptibility that allows them to proceed and flourish. While expelling the wart creates a sans blemish skin, it does nothing to right this fundamental weakness – the person is still defenseless against future medical issues.

Homeopathic Remedies For Warts-

At the point when using homeopathy for warts, great results are accomplished when the cure corresponds to the characteristics of the person as well as the shape and appearance of the wart.

On account of that, three remedies are prescribed more regularly than whatever other – Antimonium crudum (Ant-c.), Nitricum acidum (Nit-air conditioning.) and Thuja occidentalis (Thuj.) (under strict supervision of the experts). Perused on for the descriptions of these three and other regular wart remedies.

  1. Antimonium crudum (Ant-c.) (under strict supervision of the experts): Hard, smooth warts that frequently show up in groups. Crabbiness and a thickly covered white tongue also suggest the requirement for this cure. The person may also gorge and have various complaints regarding the digestion problem.
  2. Calcarea carbonica (Calc.) (under strict supervision of the experts): Round, hard, solitary warts. Frequently useful for endophytic warts that have a horny divider surrounding a focal depression. Shown in individuals with sticky hands and feet who incline toward routine and the well known as opposed to change and the obscure.

At long last, a Warning About Warts

Some skin cancers such as squalors cell carcinomas appear to be similar to warts so it is critical to get a firm diagnosis if there is any uncertainty.

In case genital warts are present it is also imperative for ladies to have a PAP smear to watch that pre-cancerous changes have not occurred on the cervix.

Stop Believing These Common Beauty Misconceptions!

Stop Believing These Common Beauty Misconceptions!

The skin is the body's most expansive organ, but few people know how to take care of their skin properly. Between media hype and amateur beauty tips, it is hard to differentiate between myths and reality. For example, should you splurge on an expensive moisturizer or not? Here is the truth behind three common beauty myths.

1.You need sunscreen only when you are outdoors on a sunny day

Sunscreen should be applied everyday whether you are indoors or outdoors. It is a misconception that we are safe from the sun's UV rays when we're indoors. However UV rays are of two types. While the UVB rays that cause sunburn are blocked by walls, we are still vulnerable to the UVA rays indoors.  UVA rays are responsible for skin ageing and skin cancer.  Similarly, on cloudy days, we are safe from UVB rays but still need protection from UVA rays. Ideally your sunscreen should have a minimum SPF of 20-30. If you don't like having to layer makeup over sunscreen, pick makeup products that are enriched with SPF. 

2.You need to moisturize and tone your skin everyday
No two people have the same skin requirements. While it may work for a person with dry skin to moisturize their skin every day, this may be detrimental for someone with oily skin. If you have oily skin, look for a lotion instead of creams, but if your skin is dry, you definitely need a cream based moisturizer. Similarly, a toner is great for oily skin but can disturb the Ph balance of dry skin. Also take a look at the climate before you moisturize your skin. Moisturizing your face regularly in a humid area can lead to breakouts, while using a toner in dry weather can make the skin rough.  

3.Makeup causes acne.

Makeup aficionados can breathe a sigh of relief; wearing makeup for extended durations does not lead to acne. The way you use your makeup and the type of product you use are the villains here. Contrary to popular belief, foundation is designed not to be absorbed into skin pores but to form a layer over the skin. Using expired products is also one of the main causes of acne. The other reason makeup is thought to trigger acne is because, if you go to sleep with makeup on, you may wake up with a breakout. This is because not washing your face, clogs your skin pores with the day's grime and dirt.
