The area under the eyes is very delicate and may be the first part of the face to start showing wrinkles. This area of the facial skin does not have as many oil glands as other parts and thereby tends to dry up sooner causing fine lines and wrinkles. Dark circles and puffiness are other symptoms of under eye skin problems.
You can take steps to protect your under eye skin.
1. Wear sunglasses that provide adequate protection
2. Try and get plenty of rest
3. Drink plenty of water
4. Diets that completely cut out fat may cause wrinkles so be sure to include some essential fatty acids in your diet.
5. Apply a good under eye cream to moisturize and protect. A regular skin cream may not be the best as it can cause excess oil buildup and aggravate puffiness.
A herbal under eye cream such as Himalaya Under Eye Cream can help to protect your under eye area. This herbal under eye cream is a blend of herbs such as Cipadessa baccifera, Bergenia ligulata and Triticum vulgare. These help to revitalize and nourish the skin reducing dark circles, fine lines and wrinkles. Visible results can be seen in 4 weeks.

Vaginal itching is generally caused by a yeast infection or candidiasis. Vaginal irritation may also be due to an allergic reaction to certain materials like nylon or to detergents, soaps or dyes. Itching can be accompanied by a discharge and strong odour. Hormonal changes and changes in the pH balance of the vagina can also lead to infections causing itching and general discomfort.
There are some natural remedies you can take to provide relief
1. Use handwashed underwear avoiding detergents
2. Sit in a warm bath in which salt has been added.
3. Eat plenty of yogurt. You can also try applying yogurt to the affected area. Sometime however this may worsen the condition due to the bacteria.

Herbs like Gymnema sylvestre, Pterocarpus marsupium, Glycyrrhiza glabra, Casearia esculenta and Eugenia jambolana are known for their anti-diabetic effect. These herbs along with almost 30 others are present in Diabecon - a herbal and mineral ayurvedic blend manufactured by Himalaya herbals.
In addition to being anti-diabetic, these herbs have beta cell protective and regenerative properties. They help repair the damage to the beta cells and actually repopulate the islets of langerhans in the pancreas. This aids in promotion of normal insulin secretion.
Diabecon acts like insulin and helps in glycemic control. It reduces blood sugar levels and produced significant decreases in both fasting and postprandial blood glucose levels in newly diagnosed patients as well as those taking OHAs. Diabecon also rids the body particularly the b-cells of oxidants and harmful agents so cell recovery and regeneration is faster and more efficient. It also acts as an antioxidant further protecting b-cells from damage and oxidative stress. Studies have shown that Diabecon also helped to protect the lens of the eye from sugar induced cataract.
