Homeopathic Treatment for Clear and glowing skin

- An article by Dr Sunitha Devi Vanemreddy M.D(Hom)
Skin is the largest and major sensory organ in the human body. Everybody wishes to have a clear and glowing skin. Skin contains sweat glands and sebaceous glands to protect from the ultraviolet rays and other conditions. Depending on the region we live skin colour changes and texture of the skin also alters from one person to another. Skin condition varies basing on the weather and health condition of the person. Clear and glowing skin affected by both internal and external factors.

The condition occurs to skin are not life threatening one but most of the people especially youngsters feels it is life altering condition. Sometimes skin loses its glowing effect and become dull and lifeless. It might be because of external factors like pollutions, chemicals and other toxins and internal factors like hormonal shift and other metabolic and systemic diseases which affect the skin.

Two years back a young guy came to my clinic with complaints of acne and dirty oily skin. He also complaining of dandruff. He started telling me that he wanted clear and glowing skin as he is stepping back in his career. He is pursuing degree in hospitality field, as in that field external looks matters more than intelligence. He came to start treatment as his instructor forced him to get the treatment as he is not looking good and people don’t appreciate his external appearance. He said he loves his profession but he is de motivated by the way people are treating him. Nowadays not only woman are worried about the external looks even men wanted flawless skin.

In adolescents the skin become dull and lifeless may be because of tremendous hormonal shifts. It causes acne, allergic dermatitis, contact dermatitis which makes the skin become dull and oily. This leads to feel inadequate and loss of self confidence.

In mid age between thirties to fifties, skin loses its texture and become dull, dry and wrinkled. It makes the person to feel lifeless and becoming old. Even though these are not life threatening conditions but people more worries about the changes they are undergoing. People are more conscious and bothered about their skins rather than anything. For that they choose to go for chemical abrasion and other external skin treatment using the chemicals. This in turn leads to contact dermatitis and allergic dermatitis. This problem is more with the sensitive skin.

Why we give more importance to skin and outer texture? After all we are living in the materialistic world where more importance given to outer texture than intelligence and confidence. We are all affected by first looks and good looks than knowing the person deeply, which makes the person to bother more for unimportant one and they are in turn making the skin to suffer more by applying the chemicals and other cosmetics. Application of cosmetics and chemical products may give temporary relief but long term haphazard use leads to skin infections like allergic dermatitis, contact dermatitis etc,.
