General Skincare tips

We need to take care of our skin the same way as we take care of our body: by eating nutritious food, avoiding junk food, and exercising regularly. We should take care of our skin as regularly as we eat a meal or brush our teeth. We can follow certain rules, such as the following:

1. Drink 8-10 glasses of water daily to keep the skin well hydrated

2. Eat fruits and salads regularly to ensure you receive your daily dose of skin-friendly vitamins and minerals

3. Avoid excess use of salt, sugar, caffeine, dairy, and alcohol that can speed up skin aging

4. Get enough sleep to prevent dark circles under your eyes

5. Regularly clean your face with plain water to remove dirt and debris from the skin

6. Avoid the sun to slow down aging and reduce the risk of skin cancer

 

Role of homoeopathy in skin care

Skin problems may appear superficial, but they happen due to an imbalance of hormones, bacterial infections (such as reduced immunity) or deficiencies, and so on.

When we treat skin problems superficially by applying creams etc., we are not tackling the root of the problem (as mentioned earlier). This resolves the problem only superficially, so once you stop using a cream, the problem may reoccur, as the imbalanced hormones or vitamin deficiency was not taken care of. Homoeopathy will go to the root of the problem; that is, it will balance the hormones, improve immunity, take care of any deficiency due to malabsorption, etc. Homoepathic medicines are easy to consume for everyone. They don’t have side-effects. It sounds almost like magic, but homoeopathy does that. It cures various ailments, such as dandruff, acne, psoriasis, eczema, vitiligo, lichen planus, alopecia areata, rash, urticaria, skin allergies, and many more.

 

Homoeopathic remedies for skin problems

Sulphur: This remedy is applicable if the skin is dry, scaly, and unhealthy. The skin easily forms pus on receiving the slightest injury. This medicine helps in rapidly healing the skin. It stops the tendency of recurrent boils and reduces itching aggravated by warmth.

Thuja: This is remedy which is useful in treating warts and carbuncles ad is especially useful in herpes. This remedy is also beneficial in treating nails that are chipped. It is recommended for patients who have brown spots on hands and arms.

Berberis Vulgaris: This is a great remedy for acne. It cures grade 2, 3 pimples. It cures eczema in the hands. It’s useful in pigmentation that occurs after eczema.

Graphites: This remedy is useful for patients who are fat, with a fair complexion and have a tendency to constipation and feeling chilly. Their skin gets rough and hard and they tend to have keloid formation. In these cases, eczema occurs in the folds of the hands, legs, groins, neck, and behind the ears.

Petroleum: This is the most sought after remedy for psoriasis. In allopathy, it is given for local application on the skin lesion. But in homoeopathy, it is given internally in the form of pills. In these cases, the patient’s skin becomes dry, rough, leathery, and cracked. Skin symptoms are at their worst in winters.

 

While homeopathy is extremely safe, it is important to consult a qualified homeopathic practitioner before beginning treatment.
