When I am young I have a good fair and soft skin but today I have darkness, oiliness and bad face.So, how can I improve my face to get back my fairness.

Retin A (tretinoin) and lighten: You may need to see a dermatologist for a prescription for retin a, (tretinoin) which is still the gold standard to improving skin tone, texture and acne. There are many skin lightening creams available over the counter including my own called "brighten" available on balshiskincare.Com. Good luck. ...Read more

See Dr., and then...: Helpful weight loss diets have natural foods that take time to chew but contain few calories. Examples include carrots, celery, and iceberg lettuce (little/no salad dressing). When shopping for fruits, buy small ones no bigger than a tennis ball, because fruits have sugar. Drinks without calories include water and green tea. A calorie is a calorie, but surely avoid sugar & simple starch calories. ...Read more

OILY SKIN FACE SCALP: WASH YOUR FACE WITH AN ACNE WASH. SHAMPOO YOUR HEAD ONCE DAILY WITH A TAR SHAMPOO. CUT DOWN ON ALL NUTS, CHOCOLATE, AND DAIRY PRODUCTS FOR TWO OR THREE WEEKS. SEE WHAT HAPPENS. IF NO BETTER, PLEASE SEE A DERMATOLOGIST. BEST LUCK. ...Read more

What is the cause of sudden stickyness & oilyness in hair except genetic and hormones?

New products?: Did you try a new gel or shampoo that may be causing it? Have you noticed any rash on the skin of your scalp? If so, you may have a skin condition like seborrheic dermatitis or psoriasis causing it. Otherwise, it may just be hormones kicking in. Best to see a doctor and have it checked out. ...Read more

Fell on my nose 7 1/2wks ago.Had scratches/cuts on nose.Put ointment everyday.Now wound is healed but nose is very oily.How can I treat this oiliness?

Frequent washing: Your nose if likely oily due to a reaction to the injury. The healing process can sometimes activate various cells within the injured site to a hyperactive state, such as hyperactive sebaceous glands. I would suggest washing with soap and water frequently until her nose becomes drier. If this doesn't work, you'll need to see a dermatologist for other answers. ...Read more

Hi, I have got an oily skin and I can't get off the black heads from my nose. Is there anyway I can reduce the oilyness and the blackheads? Thanks

Hi, I have got an oily skin and I can't get off the black heads from my nose. Is there anyway I can reduce the oilyness and the blackheads? Thanks

Blackheads: Don't scrub! It just injures the skin and increases the risk of infection. Your hormones are to blame for the only skin and I don't think you want to attempt changing that. A salicylic gel or base is probably the most helpful but apply sparingly at night, starting with a couple of times per week, increasing nightly. Use a very gentle cleanser specifically for the face (not for oily skin). ...Read more

Use real Rx: Try retinoic acid instead. Most of these products named for pretty flowers, fruits and trees are placebos. If you have acne, the retinoic acid should help as well. A dermatologist can give you more advice ...Read more

Yoplait drinkable yogurt.. Are they good or bad diet food?

Yoplait drinkable yogurt.. Are they good or bad diet food?

Not really diet food: You need to check the labels carefully, because some of these are very high in sugar. This makes them not so good for "diet food." if you like yogurt, get one that has 5g or less sugar in it (could be greek yogurt, higher in protein) and put your own fresh fruit in it. Blueberries, raspberries, and strawberries are high fiber fruits that will be better. ...Read more

How bad is frozen food for a diet?

Not so bad: If you mean like frozen vegetables-good idea, always in the house, don't wilt, go bad; plenty enough nutrition; much better than not eating it. If you mean like frozen entrees, less good; most are over salted, over fat, or not so tasty. Better to make your own in big enough portions and then freeze the extra for another meal or 2. ...Read more

What is the best method to start a diet... Going cold turkey on all 'bad foods' or taking gradual steps to eating them less and less?

What is the best method to start a diet... Going cold turkey on all 'bad foods' or taking gradual steps to eating them less and less?

Slow change: The best way to start a diet is to never start dieting but rather change the way you are eating for good. You are better off allowing yourself smaller amounts of the foods you love while challenging yourself to try new, healthy and nutritious foods that you will grow to love even more. Labeling foods as bad or good is dangerous psychologically. Weight loss needs to be slow and sustainable. ...Read more
