plenty of water 10-12 glasses (2 and a half to 3 liters) is one
of the greatest tonics for a clear healthy skin. I would also recommend
drinking 2 glasses of warm water on rising in the morning to flush
out and clean the digestive tract. One of the major reasons for
excessive pimples is that there is too much oil and fat in your
daily diet. So try to cut down on fatty foods like fried snacks
namely chips, namkeen etc, chocolates, icecream, mittai and pastries.
Salads and fruits must become a part of your daily menu. They are
foods rich in fiber, which reduce fat absorption into the body and
also help in burning extra calories. They are also important sources
of vitamins and minerals, which will add that extra glow to your
skin. Finally it makes sure that the bowel movement is regular.
Try to have a raw salad with both lunch and dinner (even a couple
of tomatoes, cucumber and onion will do). Have a fruit at 11am &
6 pm. Last but not the least, regular exercise like 30-45 min walk
or aerobics is a must to ensure healthy circulation and a clear
this age it is important that you get sufficient energy from carbohydrate
rich foods like chapati, rice, bread, vegetables and fruits and
along with this a good supply of protein rich foods like milk, egg,
dhals and pulses, poultry and fish could also be eaten. Today everybody
wants to be thin but teenagers beware. If you skip meals and cut
down on regular food as mentioned above your growth will be stunted
and nothing can be done later. To control weight one should eat
regular balanced meals and cut down on fatty foods. A very dangerous
trend we see today is that teenagers have stopped drinking milk.
This results in calcium and protein deficiency and your muscles
and bones do not grow to their full height. All teenager should
try to consume atleast 3 glasses or 600 ml of milk or curd daily.
Regular exercise to develop and stretch the muscles of the body
are very important. Make sure you are not sitting with books, the
TV and computer throughout the day but get out and be active. A
30 minute walk or swim, aerobics, dance, badminton or tennis, etc.session
is a must daily.
The most probable
explanation or answer for excessive hair fall is that protein and
calcium consumption is too low. This is most commonly seen in people
who have tried to reduce weight and have cut down their food without
making sure that their diet is balanced. It could also happen if
you suddenly cut down drastically your consumption of milk/curd
or non-veg food.
who skip breakfast or only take fruits for breakfast and those who
skip dinner or only take a vegetable soup or salad for dinner are
in danger of facing this problem. They are missing protein at each
of these meals. The best treatment is to ensure that you consume
at least 3 (600ml) glasses of low fat or skimmed milk/curd daily.
Also ensure that breakfast, lunch and dinner contain some protein
food namely milk, egg dhal, pulses, sprouts or non-veg. Even while
fasting try to make sure you consume fruits and milk or salads and
curds throughout the day. Falling hair could also be a result of
an unclean scalp or dandruff. So kindly consult a dermatologist
or a beautician.
