Skin Care Regimen With Different Stages Of Life

MD - Dermatology , Venereology & Leprosy, MBBS
Dermatologist, Dehradun
Skin Care Regimen With Different Stages Of Life

Life looks and feels different at every age, and so does your skin and so should be your skin care regime. Here is a glance at what skin care regimen should include in your teens, 20s, 30s, 40s and beyond.
In your teens

1) am: use sunscreen.
2) pm: wash your face.
All skin care regimens must start with a broad-spectrum sunscreen that should be worn year round. Yes I must repeat again year-round. Sun protection decreases risk of getting skin cancer and also slows the signs of ageing, also prevent tanning and pigmentation. Studies show that the sun’s uv radiation causes 90% of skin aging. It’s never too early to start protecting your skin. Washing your face before bed is essential and non negotiable. You need to get the day’s grime off, including makeup, oil, pollution and dirt to decrease the risk of skin irritation, clogged pores and acne. It is also the first step in helping your skin cells in their efforts to reverse the day’s wear and tear.

In your 20s
1) am: use sunscreen
2) pm: wash your face.
3) pm: apply moisturizer before bed.
Skin cells have a lot of work to do while we rest up—and they function better in a moist environment. Applying moisturiser before bed protects the skin from dehydration as you sleep, making it easier for them do the repairs they need do. Despite the common myth, moisturizers do not cause pimples. If you have oily skin and are worried, pick a product that is oil-free and non comedogenic. If you have acne or redness, pick one withniacinamide (vitamin b3), to combat that redness.

By your 30th birthday
1) am: use sunscreen
2) pm: wash your face.
3) pm: use retinoid.
4) pm: apply moisturizer before bed.
We have 30 years of data showing that topical retinoids (vitamin a) help with reducing fine lines by increasing collagen synthesis and decreasing collagen breakdown. They also correct sun damage and improve skin texture and discoloration. Topical retinoids increase cell turnover, which is why some people experience irritation if they use too much or do not follow it with a moisturizer.
Many over-the-counter products contain retinol that needs to be converted into tretinoin by the body before it can get to work. Studies show you need a strength of 0.25% retinol or 0.025% tretinoin for it to be strong enough to cause these positive changes in the skin. After washing your face, but before your face cream, apply a very small amount and start slow, using it just twice a week, only at night, and work up from there.
There is a lot of concern about sun sensitivity with retinoids. Because it increases cell turnover, the top layer of dead skin is less thick. This layer can provide an spf of 2 to 4. Provided you are using a daily sunscreen, it is ok to use retinoids all year round. 

40s and beyond
1) am: apply an antioxidant serum.
2) am: use sunscreen.
3) pm: wash your face.
4) pm: use retinoid.
5) pm: apply moisturizer before bed.

Multiple studies show that serum with vitamin c, hyaluronic acid and vitamin e protect your skin against photoaging. They work because these vitamins function as antioxidants, neutralizing the damaging free radicals created by the sun and pollution before they activate the breakdown of collagen. It’s important to know that the skin is very good at keeping things out, so these antioxidants need to be in a well-formulated vehicle that absorbs easily into the skin to ensure those important and expensive vitamins get deep enough into the skin to protect it.
Antioxidants and retinol serums are typically more expensive and not sought out until the first signs of aging begin, but they are safe to use at any age (unless you are pregnant). In fact, many teenagers are prescribed tretinoin for acne. If you have started using it for acne, I suggest that you keep using it even after your skin improves. Simply switch to a more moisturizing formula to make it more tolerable for less oily skin.
I hope it’s helpful.

You should use a broad spectrum sunscreen 20 minutes before sun exposure. As you are a player you should go for a water proof sunscreen and the one containing zinc oxide or titanium oxide.

Testosterone level 212, age 39, can improvement un testosterone level give hair growth.
Yes the normal level should be in between 280-1100. Yours is lower and as we know testosterone is essential for the secondary sexual character development. So the improvement in the level will definitely help you to achieve this. It will help in beard and moustache hair growth. But first you have to consult to endocrinologist to rule out the causes of lower body testosterone level and dermatologist to rule out the other causes of hair disorder.

Finasterride in the dose prescribed for MPB does tha even many side effects and it also FDA approved for the same. There are many studies where pts are using finasteride for Long time without any side effects. Although in very few pt it can cause reduction of libido but that in very few only. So my advise is that you should take it and if you feel any such side effect then you can consult to the treating physician because if it occurs it’s totally reversible after stopping the drug. There is nothing permanent effect. And also remember try to take it early in the morning because it’s the time when your hormone levels are at peak.

How To Prevent Pimples Due To Dandruff?

How To Prevent Pimples Due To Dandruff?

Dandruff is a major cause for hairfall and hair weakening. It is estimated to affect as many as one in five individuals in india. Acne is a skin condition that happens when pores get clogged with dead skin cells and oil, giving rise to pimples. It can be caused by numerous reasons like hormonal changes, dandruff, improper diet, stress, consumption of specific drugs, excessive use of cosmetic products etc.

Dandruff has been associated with presence of yeast or fungi, it is also associated with abnormal skin ultrastructure. Dandruff makes the skin on your scalp flaky. These dry flakes of skin are often responsible for clogging the pores on your face, mostly affecting your forehead. In this way, dandruff triggers appearance of acne and can worsen the condition of your skin if you already have pimples.

Eradicating dandruff from your scalp is the best way to prevent acne breakouts on your skin due to dandruff.

Here are some simple ways to keep acne due to dandruff away from your skin:

  1. Brush your hair at least twice a day: Brushing your hair at least two times a day will ensure that the dead cells on your scalp are removed and don't get a chance to clog pores. This option is highly beneficial in getting rid of acne caused by dandruff.
  2. Use medicated anti-dandruff shampoo: Topical medicated solutions like a medicated shampoo should be used as a treatment. Short contact period of shampoo with scalp is important for more benefit. Good conditioner should also be used after head wash with shampoo.
  3. Ensure that your hair stays off your face: Keeping hair off your face will ensure that dandruff doesn't come in contact with your skin and clog pores, preventing pimples. For this, you can use hair bands or tie your hair in a ponytail or braid.

If you’ve got tiny, dry bumps on your thighs, then you likely have keratosis pilaris (kp). Kp is a common, harmless, genetic skin condition caused by a buildup of the protein keratin that plugs up the hair follicle, resulting in an acne-like bump that can be either white or red in color.

Keratosis pilaris most commonly occurs on the backs of the upper arms and on the thighs, and less commonly on the face, neck, and buttocks. Although adults can develop kp, it’s most common in children and adolescents who as they age, typically outgrow it.

Although it’s benign, kp can be unsightly and embarrassing, leading many sufferers to hide their skin and avoid wearing sleeveless shirts and shorts.

How do you treat keratosis pilaris? although you can’t be cured of kp, there are several things you can do to reduce the bumps and improve your skin’s overall appearance:

1. Moisturize daily. Moisturizing daily, particularly after showering or bathing when the skin is still damp, is one of the most effective and inexpensive ways to treat kp. Moisturizing is especially important during cold weather months when kp often worsens.
2. Look for products containing lactic acid, glycolic acid, or urea. Many over-the-counter lotions and creams contain these ingredients that help exfoliate dead skin, making skin feel smoother and softer. With prolonged use, they can help remove bumps and improve the appearance of your skin. Always use gentle moisturizing body washes that both cleanse and moisturize the skin.
3. Consult your dermatologist. If you haven’t had any improvement with these, then talk with your dermatologist about other options. Prescription retinoids can help kp, and in some severe cases, laser treatments, peeling can be used.

Brown moles are there all over his body, we have consulted so many doctors ,they told like his skin is allergic to sun as his skin tone and type is similar to americans (he is extremely fair) and they also face the same issue when they come here ,affected area-face, hands, legs and too less on upper body part. Doctors advice to do laser when he is 18 or more. Please suggest something and advice if laser guarantees to remove them permanently and it won't appear again.

As you described the condition it looks like freckles. The best is to avoid sun exposure as far as possible. Use good sunscreen with high spf and pa rating. And yes you can go for LASER but it will only improve the freckles that is present. There is no guarantee that it won’t appear again.

No this medicine doesn’t cause infertility problems but it’s absolutely contraindicated in pregnancy due to the teratogenic effect. You should also avoid it if you are planning for pregnancy.
