As a protecting shell of the body, your skin takes up a lot of things from the polluted environment. Skin is under the constant assault of harmful chemicals, hazardous elements, harsh sunlight and other toxic elements present in the air.

We are not saying getting a flawless skin is impossible; but it surely requires extra efforts to do so. However, here we mention you few common skin conditions and how to treat them.


1. Acne

Acne is one among the common problems for both, men and women. This generally gets worse during periods, stress or menopause. However, the existence of acne is due to an imbalance of hormones in the body or due to an improper diet plan. You should consult your doctor to know the exact reason behind the acne on the skin and then act accordingly.


2. Hyper-pigmentation

Hyper-pigmentation is a skin condition where dark patches appear on the skin. These patches look generally dark than rest of the skin, making your face appear weird. Hyper-pigmentation is mostly due to excessive exposure of skin under the sun or, sometimes, it may be due to skin inflammation and skin injuries. Rubbing potato juice, tomato juice or baking soda paste can help to get rid of the hyper-pigmentation problem.


3. Excess Facial Hair Problem

Unwanted and excess hair problem on the face can be due to a disorder known as Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS). This problem is generally commonly seen in women struggling from diabetes, obesity, and high blood pressure. If you suffer from irregular periods and mood swings, there are high chances of occurrence of excess facial hair. This problem can be treated with appropriate medication.


4. Dry Skin

Although we experience dry skin in winter, some people undergo this problem throughout the year. Their skin lacks hydration and looks tired and dry all the time. Dry skin is generally due to a lack of Omega-3 and Omega-6 in the body. Other than this, an imbalance of vitamins and proteins in the body may also lead to dry skin. To avoid this condition, keep your skin hydrated and consume an adequate amount of water. Include fresh veggies and fruits in your daily diet.


5. Oily Skin

Individuals who generally hog on junk foods experience excess oil on their face. However, the occurrence of oil generally gets worse according to the intake and hence, you should try to include more of fresh fruits, veggies, nuts and other healthy food items in your diet.


6. Puffy Eyes

Most of them suffer from puffy eyes due to lack of sleep or, sometimes, it can be due to eye allergies. Puffy eyes is an eye condition that can be easily treated at home. Take some cucumber slice and keep it over your eyes. If not cucumber, washing your eyes regularly with cold water or using an anti-inflammatory cream can help to treat the condition of puffy eyes.


7. White Spots Around The Eye

White spots around the eye are known as Milia. These white spots or Milia around the eye are generally caused when the dead cells get accumulated below the skin cells or form clumps under the eye. In order to get rid of this, try to use a salicylic acid-based face wash or cream. Consult your doctor if the problem seems to be serious.
