Dear Anu
Herbs have different reactions on different people. Both the remedies are very good for skin disorders. May be your skin is very sensitive that is why it is causing this burning sensation. We advise you to try the following Herbs.
1. Mix 1 tablespoon Lemon and 1 tablespoon honey. Apply this mixture on the effected areas. Lemon contains natural bleaching agents. It make the dark spots light. Honey will make your skin radiant.
Apply the mixture for 15 minutes and then rinse it off with cold water. 2.Eat 1 pomegranate daily. This is one of the best remedies that helps in attaining a glowing Skin.

Dear Nisha
Please make sure that Aloe Vera suits you. As it does not suit every body. You can also try the Herbal Treatment formula number 4 given under Materia Medica on this page.

Use it for 2 months but avoid regular usage. Do it on alternative days and also keep a good diet.

Dear Akhi
Could you please let us know that which Hormone Tablets are you taking for Thyroid?
For Melasma, you can try the following face pack.
1. Take Aloe Vera Gel in a container. Buy 1 tablet of Selen Vitamin C. Mash the tablet and take just a pinch of tablet and add it to Aloe Vera Gel. Mix the tablet well in the gel. Store it in a glass jar. Apply that every night before going to bed. Use it for 1 week and see the results.
2. Take some pure Sandalwood powder, add some gram floor and a pinch of Turmeric powder in it. Make a paste by adding coconut water or rose water. Pour that in ice trays and freeze it. Apply one ice cube daily. Wait until it gets dry. Wash your face with normal water.
Try this too for 1 week.

Dear Mitanshi
We advise you to add some honey or milk in. As the lemon may cause some dryness but if you add honey or milk then will be effect more. And if you apply this face pack in the evening it will repair your damage skin too.
