Suffering from Acne Zits? Try Ayurvedic Remedies!

Acne can be a recurring and problematic condition that not only affects adolescents, but younger and to some extent even older adults. Acne may not only cause a dent in your self-esteem, in worst scenarios, it could leave scars on your skin. However, holistic forms of medicine, such as Ayurveda can very easily provide relief from acne and help you regain your confidence. Some of the tips to control acne through this means are mentioned below.

Ayurvedic remedies for Acne

  1. Lemon Juice and Honey: Mix one tablespoon of honey with equal amounts of lemon juice. Apply small portions of this paste on pimples and even acne scars. Leave this paste on for about ten minutes or so and then wash it off with water. Use this remedy about 5 to 6 times a week and then for a few weeks to see improvements.
  2. Neem Leaves: Another great and easily available remedy, you can make a paste with Neem leaves by adding a slight amount of water. Apply this paste and keep it for sometime on you face before washing it off with water. This is a great remedy and is known to have worked very effectively with many people.
  3. Potato: You can rub potatoes on you face after slicing them or you can soak them in water and the use them on your face. It could be sliced, grated or even juiced as it can be applied in any form. It also helps your skin by clearing pigmentation problems.
  4. Papaya Milk: This is another wonder remedy, which is a really effective cure; although it can be a very sticky substance to handle. However, using it regularly and then washing it off with water can cure your acne problem very quickly.
  5. Lifestyle changes: Other habits and lifestyle changes are of great help in removing acne and acne scars
    • Don’t try to scratch or touch your pimples
    • Clean your pillow covers regularly
    • Avoid oily and junk food
    • Exercise regularly as it can regulate the metabolism of the body and help control acne
    • Clean your face twice daily with a mild cleanser. But don’t scrub too hard and don’t clean more than twice as that will encourage more oil production, causing more acne.

Thanks for your query. You can start using any salicylic acid based face wash. Use benzoyl peroxide 2.5% on the acne at night, it will help you with whiteheads and acne. Chemical peeling will help you to clear out your acne soon for that you can visit a dermatologist near you. Hope it helps. All the best.

I am 20 years female and I have severe dark circles please send me any treatment I really need it please.

I am 20 years female and I have severe dark circles please send me any treatment I really need it please.
Hello, Common reasons for dark circle are aging, genetics, nutritional deficiency (of vitamin A, C, K, E), sleep deprivation, worm-infestation, anemia, smoking & drinking, dehydration, sun exposure, allergies, stress/ tension and hormonal changes. Dark circles are linked to anemia, and liver diseases. So, in case of dark circles which are there due to some underlying cause can be get rid rid of once the causative factor is rectified. But the dark circles which are inherited from our genes can't be removed completely, to some extent can make slightly better. Diet and Management: Always take a balanced diet rich in green leafy vegetable, dairy products and all types of fruits to keep your body healthy. It is advisable to have at least 10-12 glasses of water and include fresh fruit daily. It is also advisable to restrict the intake of caffeinated drinks such as tea, coffee, alcohol and other caffeinated drinks as it aggravates dehydration. Take enough of 6-8 hrs. Of sleep. Avoid taking stress/ tension. Do daily exercising regularly as it increases oxygen carrying capacity of the cells and tissues. Medication: Take homoeopathic medicines – Schwabe's Cina 1M/ one dose at night for 10 days; Alfaalfa Tonic and Five Phos. - both twice daily for 20 days. Revert me there after.

You need to be practical and know your own body. It's said one mans food is another mans poison. That because each person is unique. So if some thing does not suit you just avoid it! as much as possible try to eat natural food (avoid highly refined /junk / heavily fried food/and foods with preservatives in your daily diet. Have whole grains and unpolished pulses. Eat healthy and be healthy. Eat more of fruits and vegetables and also nuts which will give good nourishment and increase your immune system. Add to that 30- 40 mins of exercise daily. Avoid all kinds of stimulants - alcohol, tobacco etc because they are not essential for healthy living but may interfere with your health in the long run. The choice is always yours! choose health and fitness which requires lot self discipline but the benefits are also equally worthy. Regarding bathing cold water is more energising! but it's a choice. Those who dislike cold water bath can take warm water bath. Very hot water is not advisable.

I have little white patches on my face coming and going for4-5 months wat should I do.
White patchs on body can be due to various reasons. It can b hereditary or due to use of some chemical agents, drugs, medication, trauma, contact with allergic agents, autoimmune diseases, age to name a few. It's very important that you take care not to injure your self or that can leave marks. Any suspicious chemical agent such as creams, sprays, deodorants should be avoided. It's imperative to be relaxed or such a condition can worsen. Don't b anxious about anything for everyone faces anxieties and only the relaxed can get above. Diet rich in vitamin c and phytonutrients like anthocyanin namely lemon, orange, gooseberry vil scavenge the free radicals which damage the cells and produce white spots and patchs. If you have autoimmune diseases like pernicious anaemia, thyroiditis, alopecia areata, vitiligo, inflammatory bowel disease, it has to be evaluated and treated and it vil definitely respond to treatment too. So, follow the above measures.

Oily skin and summers: what is the ideal way to handle it?

Oily skin and summers: what is the ideal way to handle it?

Oily skin is a condition that can be characterized by shine on the skin and a large number of pores. The oil in question is a result of overactive sebaceous glands that produce excessive sebum. This can result in acne and blackheads. Summer is a time of the year where skin problems due to oily skin are worsened by factors such as sweat and dust. So proper skin care is necessary in order to negate the effects of oily skin.

There are multiple ways to handle this condition in summers:

1. Using cleansers - Proper cleaning of skin is a very important step in lessening the effects of oily skin. Harsh cleansers have an opposing effect as they facilitate secretion of oil, so a mild cleanser is usually the best option. Some cleansers may contain ingredients that irritate the skin, so care is advised in selecting a proper one.

2. Hydration and food - Keeping the body well hydrated in summers combined with a diet free of greasy, oily food and less fats can help in reducing the effects of oily skin.

3. Using masks to clear the face - Masks such as clay masks, yogurt, and baking soda can help in cleansing the skin by clearing the oil. It should be noted that these treatments should not be overdone as they can cause the skin to dry up too much and over secrete oil.

4. Skin moisturizers - People often have this notion that oily skin does not require moisturizer application. Selecting a moisturizer that is fit for oily skin and using it will help moisturize the skin and keep it healthy.

5. Sunscreen - Sunscreen is a necessity during summers, and the sunscreen you choose should be specifically for oily skin in order for it to work effectively. Application of sunscreen can help prevent the UV rays of the sun from penetrating the skin and cause complications.

6. Dermatological treatment - In case of severe oiliness, treatments such as chemical peels and creams laced with tretinoin can help.

'Consult'.

Hi doctor I want more beautiful and more white. What should I do doctor? Plzz tell me what should I do? thanks.
Hello, thank you for posting on lybrate. Complexion or skin color of any person is has two components; constitutive, one which is predetermined by genetics and racial factors and usually cannot be changed with any treatment. The other component is due to external agents like environmental exposure, sunlight, use of any cosmetics etc and is amenable to treatment. You can get a series of chemical peels from a dermatologist in your city. Chemical peels are very effective treatment for skin lightening as they actually remove the upper dead layers of skin and stimulate regeneration of collagen and thus newer layers of skin. Many options are available in chemical peels depending on the requirement and skin type. (glycolic peel, retinol peel, cocktail peel etc) also, chemical peeling can be preceded by a simple procedure called microderamabrasion or commonly known as skin polishing to augment the results. Also, at home you can try using cream containing kojic acid, tetrahydrocurcumin, arbutin etc for several months (melaglow cream) for additional benefit and maintenance. Always use broad spectrum sunscreen before going out in sun.(la shield suncreen) use a plain moisturiser like cetaphil dam on daily basis for healthy and hydrated skin. Take plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables in your daily diet. Hope this will take care of your issue.
