Hello Sir/Ma’am, I am 23 years old guy. I have been suffering from social anxiety for quite a long time now. I feel that the sole reason behind this is my skin colour which is dark & it causes me lot of hesitation and consciousness to face and talk to people. The main thing which I also wanted to share is that when I in my childhood I had fair skin & with time I turned darker. Is there any natural proven remedy to help for the same or shall I try for laser treatment?

Hello User,

Good mental health is equally important as our physical health. Anxiety, restlessness, fears, etc. All these are indications of deteriorating mental health.
Following the wrong lifestyle, incorrect sleeping patterns, and a bad environment are the main reasons for this. However, one can achieve good mental health by just making small changes in the daily routine and adopting a natural lifestyle. 

In your case, you said that the dark colour of your skin is the reason for your anxiety but it is not something to focus on. Every person has their own identity in terms of colour, body shape, height, skin, etc. Having a dark skin colour is not bad at all. You need to focus your energies on positive things instead of thinking on this negative side. Your confidence comes from what you feel and not from your skin colour. A good environment is also important, good environment also includes good friends and relatives.

Here are some tips that will help you to deal with the situation.

Diet

  • Start the day with 3 to 4 glasses of warm water. This will help to eliminate the toxins out of the body. 
  • Eat sprouts in your breakfast. Along with sprouts, have freshly prepared homemade fruit juices. 
  • Have soaked raisins and almonds in the morning. This will provide the body with easily absorbable nutrients. 
  • Include Vitamin C in your diet like blueberries, amla, orange, lemon, etc.
  • Have fresh fruits and green leafy vegetables. 
  • Have whole grains like barley, millets, oats, etc.
  • Drink plenty of water throughout the day. 

Foods to avoid-

  • Avoid dairy products like ghee, milk, paneer, curd, etc, and animal foods.
  • Avoid tea and coffee. 
  • Avoid carbonated drinks. 
  • Avoid processed, packaged, oily, and spicy foods. 
  • Avoid refined oils and refined grains. 

Meditation 

Meditation is the key to cure any kind of health problem, especially mental illness. Practicing meditation daily keeps the mind fit and healthy. 

Practice meditation regularly for 30 minutes. 

Meditate early in the morning and in a place full of trees. 

Practice bhramri pranayam as it also gives a soothing effect to the mind.

Sleep 

Proper sleep is extremely important for a healthy mind as sleeping pattern helps to maintain our circadian rhythm. Lack of sleep may also lead to irritability and anxiety. 

So, take proper sleep of at least 8 to 10 hours daily. Sleep early at night and also wake up early in the morning. Avoid the use of electronic devices like mobiles, laptops, computers, tv, etc at least 1hour before sleeping and read books before sleeping. This will help to get a better quality of sleep. 

Thank you
