You can apply aloe vera juice/gel from its leaf (fresh), not from ready made gels available in market. Remove skin of an aloe vera leaf. Take /scoop out gel. Apply this gel to your face skin. Wash with plain water after an hour. Stop using soap on face. Instead take a spoon of milk, add a pinch of turmeric (haldi). Mix n apply on face with the help of cotton. Leave for a few minutes then wash off. Apply moisturizer like coconut oil. Use some sunblock with spf (at least 50) every time you go out in sun.

Panderm plus is an irrational steroid cream with other antimicrobial agents which causes steroid induced dermatitis and skin atrophy and thinning. Side effects are long term and long-standing. Send some good photos to arrive at correct diagnosis and treatment.

Things To Avoid On Your Face!

Things To Avoid On Your Face!

The most special aspect of one’s personality is the face and is the most significant part that helps in identifying a person. Thus, naturally, and understandably, almost everyone loves indulging in facial care and is on the hunt for facial beauty products. However, you must know what goes into your skin and what problems it may cause before using a product. Hence, below is a list of some common items that you should think twice about before applying them to your face:

1. Let the shampoos not get into facial skin
The face and hair comprise of different molecules. Though the hair requires stronger surfactants for removal of oil and dirt, the face needs a milder cleanser. Shampoos are not able to address the delicate and softer molecules which are present in the facial skin. When the shampoo from the hair drips down to the face, it can make the facial skin dry and flaky which can make it harder to repair.

2. Petroleum jelly might clog the pores
Petroleum jelly is often considered a home run in most households. With aging, the skin starts getting thinner, and the elasticity decreases. The best thing that you can do for your skin is to keep it moisturized. However, petroleum jelly is very thick and doesn’t evaporate, thereby it does not allow the moisture to come to the surface of the skin. Moisturizing is important but more important is choosing the right moisturiser.

3. Toothpaste for pimples? No!
There is hardly any person on the planet who has not used a dab of toothpaste for drying out a pimple. A lot of toothpaste contain anti-bacterial agents that can help with a blemish. The result may be that you may end up having irritation and therefore, you should limit the application of toothpaste to your teeth only.

4. Dilute Lemon juice before use
Lemon juice is always held as an epitome of skin brightener. Apple cider vinegar is the new rage in the skincare regime. If you feel like using these ingredients, then make sure that you dilute them with water before applying it to the skin.

5. Baking soda
A lot of scrubbing or exfoliating can be quite detrimental to the facial skin. Though you may believe that baking soda can help keep your skin clean, you should never apply it directly on the skin. You may mix it with your regular face cleanser or coconut oil.

6. Use specific serums
Just like all other cosmetics, serums for varying body areas are comprised of varying components. This means that your skin cannot handle your hair serum. Hair serums comprise of ingredients which are meant for treating hair shaft but won’t treat the problems of your skin.

7. Alcohol-based products
Astringents and toners are always present in the skincare shelves, but they are not able to treat skin issues. It would be best to use lightweight moisturizer or switch to a different face cleanser to avoid hurting the skin.
Thus, doing a little research before dabbing on a product on your face can spare your facial skin from possible hazards and adverse reactions.

Under Eye-Dark Circles - How To Get Rid Of Them?

Under Eye-Dark Circles - How To Get Rid Of Them?

Beautiful eyes speak a thousand words. They play a pivotal role in shaping up your overall personality. Your eyes can make or break things in life. But the appearance of dark patches under eyes may play a spoilsport. They foil the beauty of your innocent eyes. It is not just lack of sleep or rest that causes these unwanted dark circles. Researchers have found out that a number of factors are responsible for under eye dark circles. 

Here are the common reasons behind dark circles:

  1. Aging: There are numerous blood vessels passing through the under eye region. As blood cells get clogged in these vessels, they give a blue-black tinge to the region. Aging leads to the thinning of the skin under the eye. This makes the blood vessels more prominent and appears as dark circles.
  2. Hereditary factors: You can sometimes blame the bad genes for the occurrence of dark circles.
  3. Nutritional deficiency: If you are not taking a balanced diet, you may end up developing dark circles. Your body must get an adequate supply of vitamins A, C, K and E to prevent dark circles.
  4. Insufficient Sleep: Lack of proper rest and sleep turns the skin under the eyes pale. Therefore, the blood in the veins becomes more prominent, causing dark circles.
  5. Smoking and alcohol: The intake of alcohol or indulging in smoking can lead to dehydration of the body and thus lead to dark circles.
  6. Long hours under the sun: Your skin under the eyes gets damaged by the UV rays from sunlight. Moreover, spending long hours under the sun triggers the excess production of melanin pigment. This gives a darker shade to the region beneath your eyes.
  7. Pregnancy and menstruation: A woman's skin is largely affected by the hormonal influences at the time of pregnancy or menstruation. The hormonal changes during these periods lead to darkening of the under-eye area
  8. Diseases: Researchers have found that certain diseases linked to the liver or anemia often causes dark circles under the eye.
  9. Allergies: The colour of the under-eye region often changes due to certain allergic reactions and subsequent scratching or rubbing of the area.

A holistic approach to remove dark circles combines various things like proper nutrition, some body detoxification, some home-made natural face pack, lifestyle change, yoga etc.

Skin - How To Enhance It?

Skin - How To Enhance It?

We all love that perfectly glowing skin that has no marks or signs of ageing like moles, tags, fine lines, dark circles and many others. However, for most of us, this remains an imaginary picture that we have in mind. What stares back at us in the mirror has some of the above-noted features, in various combinations. However, the desire for that blemish-free skin without any of these continues and is actually not far from reality too.

Some major irritants causing skin scars are as follows:

  1. Vascular marks including thread veins and broken capillaries.
  2. Spider nevus is a spider-web like structure with a central vessel and surrounding capillaries dilated radiating away from it. Similarly, blood spots are red, vascular spots that come with ageing.
  3. Skin tags or milia or warts, these are harmless but esthetically concerning and can irritate if found in an area where it interferes with the garments
  4. Age spots or brown spots that occur due to sun exposure are also harmless but are esthetic concern.

With esthetics attaining such importance, new ways are constantly being identified to help people improve their looks. While there are various creams and lotions and serums with promises of various chemicals that can do wonders, there actually are procedures that have a scientific basis and can produce results more quickly and effectively. The following are some popular advanced cosmetic procedures (ACPs) that can help clear these blemishes and produce a spotless, clear skin.

  1. Chemical peels: This is an exfoliation process done in the clinic, by removing the top layers of rough skin, thereby, making space for new skin to grow. It stimulates the growth of collagen and elastin, and promoting new skin growth. It can also be combined with topical antioxidants such as tretinoin and vitamin C, which are proven beneficial for the skin.
  2. Dermabrasion: Used in a variety of conditions (acne, wrinkles, blemishes), it works on layers that are far deeper than a chemical peel. A rotating brush is used to remove the upper layers of the skin, leaving the underlying layers open. The removed layers of the skin may form a scab, and can be mildly painful. The doctor may decide to use a mild local anesthetic if required.
  3. Laser skin resurfacing: The skin has an upper thicker layer and an inner thinner layer. A small amount of laser is applied to the underlying layers to stimulate them to produce collagen. The top layers are kept cool with a gel. The extra collagen produces improves elasticity and produces younger-looking skin, removing all blemishes.

All these are equally proven ways to treat blemishes. The decision of choosing one particular method should be completely based on your expectations.
