Brief Answer:
Normal process of skin ageing sir

Detailed Answer:
Hello sir and welcome.

Thank you for writing to us.

I have gone through your query with diligence and would like you to know that I am here to help.

I should rightfully start by saying that the description provided by you is a completely normal process of ageing skin sir, and is in most cases nothing to worry about unless it leads to discomfort or social embarrassment. Let me list some simple remedies your wife can go about without the use of medications of any sort to help sort this issue as I do not want her to apply any chemicals on here face and possibly ruin the current situation.

-Diet rich in vitamin A, which contains anti-oxidants which helps in rejuvenation of skin (eg. fish, poultry, vegetables, etc.)
-Use a home-made mask with lemon juice, distilled water and a very small amount of sugar in it. Mix and apply on the skin for about 20 minutes
-Use honey on the skin, which is rich in anti-oxidants and is a natural remedy to help rejuvenation, natural healing and reverse the effect of stress, chemicals, pollution, etc. Apply for 15-20 minutes everyday
-Use a sun-block every time she is exposed to the sun
-Use a warm moist towel every time she has to wipe her face; this helps to moisturise her face and also prevent it from drying and cracking
-Use cotton pads and a moisturising cream to clean off dirt and pollution after a day out
-Avoid the use of makeup and do not let her go to bed with anything on her face

This is nothing to worry about sir, with age our body gets more sensitive and all we need to do is to take more care and precautions than we used to when we were younger and all should be fine.

I hope you find my response helpful and informative. Please feel free to write back to me for any further clarifications, I would be more than happy to help.

My best regards to ma'am and prayers for you for being such a concerned and loving husband. May God XXXXXXX both of you everything you need and more.

Best wishes.

I had 2 twisted intestine surgeries-removed ascending colon and top part going across, secum and part of small intestine. Is it possible now that my body is not able to absorb vitamins, minerals and healthy foods I'm eating? I have had 3 neck surgeries where the bones involved are not healing and I wonder if this is a reason why. I take 3,ooo IU's of vitamin D and eat a diet rich in calcium.I rarely eat meat but I do eat some salmon and chicken, and take fiber daily. I'm 59 , weigh 125, 4 ft 5 1/2 in, am relatively healthy besides this-take daily meds for migraines, have IBS(constipation) scoliosis so I walk for exercise, and have fibromyalgia which is under control.

Hi sir, I don’t want to bother u with details, I just want o share my illness, I am 18 now and I am a victim of the guillian burr syndrome or GBS, when I was 12, as I turned 15 it strucked again, the doctors in my country aren’t specialized enough and I cant afford for an abroad treatment, in visits the neuro doctor gave me some pills which contains, vitamin A, B1, B6, B12, and Zinc. However I don’t feel well, some time, and a constant fear runs in my mind is being sick another time, which can really hamper my studies and my personal life. Though I look fine but I really don’t know what to do. I am 92 kgs of weight, and sometime I have muscle aches, and other kinds of muscular illness, I masturbate a lot which I think that refers to my back pain. Apart from that and all these sir what can I do to prevent this life threatening illness to show up again.
