    If you have ever thought about how to rejuvenate your skin and make yourself look younger, chances are that you have heard about the chemical peel. As the name suggests, getting a chemical peel involves the application of a chemical on the skin that causes the top layer to blister and peel off. By doing this, a new layer of skin is exposed that is usually smoother than before. Chemical peels are often misunderstood and are surrounded by a number of myths. Let's take a look at three common myths about this procedure.

    All chemical peels are the same
    All chemical peels are definitely not same. Chemical peels can be categorized as light or superficial peels, medium peels and deep peels. A light peel removes only the top layer of skin to make your skin look brighter and reduce wrinkles. Medium depth chemical peels penetrate deeper into the skin and are used to treat sun damage and pigmentation. Deep peels are the strongest type of peels that penetrate into the dermal layers of the skin. Chemical peels also vary on the basis of the chemical used.

    It involves a long recovery
    Though the process itself may not take long, the recovery time depends on the type of chemical peel procedure you have undergone. A superficial peel has virtually no recovery time and can be performed even during a working day's lunch break. Medium depth peels can cause discomfort for about an hour after the procedure and can take a few days to heel. During this time, your skin may look patchy and inflamed and may feel itchy. With a deep peel, the skin may heal in 2-3 weeks, but usually remains red for a few months. Depending on the chemical used, you may also feel unwell after a deep peel.

    It is beneficial only if you have a dermatological issue
    You don't need to suffer from a skin problem to undergo a chemical peel. Many women undergo a chemical peel simply to give their skin a glow and to brighten their skin. It can remove wrinkles and uneven skin pigmentation while making the skin smoother and softer to touch. Along with the face, chemical peels can also be done on the neck, chest, back and arms.

    Chemical peels can do a lot for your skin as long as you choose the right peel for your skin and it is performed safely. While you can get a superficial peel at a spa, deep peels should be performed only by licensed plastic surgeons or experienced dermatologists.

    Why do feet stink?

    Smelly feet can be a cause of great embarrassment and discomfort for anyone. Also known as bromodosis, the primary cause of smelly feet is the sweat glands in your feet. This part of the human body has more sweat glands than anywhere else in the body. Additionally, compared to sweat glands in the other parts of the body that secrete to control your body temperature when exposed to hot weather or while exercising, the sweat glands in your feet produce perspiration all the time.

    When this happens, bacteria living on your skin break down the perspiration that oozes from your skin pores and a cheese-like smell is produced as the sweat gets broken down by the bacteria.

    Apart from the explanation of the origin of this kind of smell, the causes that lead to you having smelly feet are:

    - wearing the same footwear on a daily basis and not letting them dry

    - poor hygiene habits like not washing your feet and drying them thoroughly

    - changes in the body's hormones level especially during pregnancy and puberty

    - too much stress

    - hyperhidrosis (a condition wherein you sweat excessively)

    - athlete's foot (infection of the soles of the feet and between the toes)

    Dear lybrate-user, sometimes myths spoken commonly becomes so popular that it replaces truth completely. Lets us try and understand how does hair grow. Hair has a root deep inside the skin of body and scalp. It has blood supply near its roots. When you eat healthy well balanced diet on time. All the nutrition absorbed from the intestine goes to the blood. This provides nutrition to the scalp. So healthy eating habits are good for hair growth. Similarly if there is no disease affecting scalp or body then proper sleep or rest is important. Stress leads to hair fall. Daily old hair are shed and new hair are formed. So need not worry for few hair loss. Hair grows from the roots. So cutting the hair any level above the scalp will not affect the hair growth at all. It is a myth that cutting or shaving the hair leads to hair growth.

    Dandruff is due to excess oil production by scalp mixed with dead skin, bacteria and fungus. If you have a genetic tendency to produce more oil then you should wash it daily. Winter, air conditioners cause dryness of scalp, this sends signals inside skin and there is rebound hyper oil production. So, you must avoid applying oil on scalp, wash scalp daily using daily use mild shampoo. If dandruff persists then we must rule out other conditions.

    Usually there is no side effect seen in day to day practice. But people who are allergic or have sensitive skin may get slight redness on application or slight burning. But this is very individual response. If used correctly then no harm.

    If you are lip licking frequently, to get rid of lip dryness then your problem will increase. Do not allow saliva to come in contact with lips often. You can use lip moisturiser through out the day, as frequent as it is needed.

    Body parts where skin touches each other, body folds where sweat accumulates gives a chance for fungus to multiply. This gives rise to itching and rash, commonly seen in groin areas, under arms and belt area. Antibiotics are used against bacterial infection. In this case, keeping good body hygiene is most important. Have bath twice a day, wipe body dry, maximum cotton wear, do not repeat unwashed clothes. This will prevent further infection.

    Hair loss can happen due to many reasons. First we need to diagnose if there is any condition in scalp or in body or in hormones that is causing the hair loss. Dry and rough hair could be hereditary or due to climate change or due to poor hair hygiene. Please wash your hair regularly, apply conditioner. Use serum in semi wet hair. All this will give shine to hair. Still, if you take good medicines for hair then it would give better results. Eat healthy, well balanced nutritious diet on time. Please send your photographs for proper assessment. Take care.

    Greying of hair was a sign of wisdom in the past. But today, looking younger even in your 40's is the norm. Hair has a vital role in making the personality of a person. Greying has many reasons e. G. Stress, heredity, certain disease conditions, medications etc. Lets us first understand why hair looks black. Hair root has pigment (melanin) producing cells called malenocytes. This melanin presence gives hair its black colour. When melanocytes do not produce melanin due to any reason the hair turns grey (white). Once the hair has lost its ability to produce melanin it cannot be corrected. But newer molecules like melitane, paba etc have helped in some patients but in early age. Adults with long standing grey hair do not seem to respond that well to such treatments. External hair colouring agents like hair dyes, hair colours are semi permanent and can be used safely after doing the patch testing. Those who are allergic to such colouring agents can use herbal products. One must remember that some so called natural products if they contain ppd (paraphenylene di amine) can give rise to allergy. Please check if it is suitable to your skin and then enjoy the young look. In addition take some hair growth supplements.

    Dear lybrate-user, we all know how important it is to glow with healthy skin. I fully agree with you that during summer due to excessive sunlight exposure the skin turns darker. Before I prescribe anything to you, let me give some scientific insights regarding skin. People are divided into 6 different skin types based on their colour and response to sunlight from very light fair skin to very dark skin. This is called fitzpatrick classification. One cannot change the skin type with creams and tablets. Skin gets its colour from amount of melanin pigment present in it. With sunlight's uv rays (ultra violet rays) this melanin pigment increases. So you must apply a sunscreen before going out in sunlight and reapply especially if it washed away by sweat. Take additional protection with cap. Eat healthy diet to maintain the glow. There are many creams in the market to reduce the pigmentation. For any intense treatment you must visit the dermatologist personally. Assess you skin type and is not sensitive. Remember, excess application of cream will not make skin fair.
