Chemical Peel - Is it Suitable for Everyone?

Everyone desires to have a glowing skin and it is very important that the face is washed regularly and moisturized to keep it smooth. Many beauty treatments are available to make the skin look young and radiant, but some of them are also ineffective and do not reduce the effects of aging. Some treatments like use of chemical peels, photofacial treatment and microdermabrasion are useful in returning the glow of your skin.

 

Use of chemical peels

The use of chemical peels mainly involves the use of chemicals to remove the upper layer of the skin. The layer of the skin is peeled easily as additives or some wax is added in the chemical peels. The remaining cells are moisturized by the acidic solution and it also helps in the promotion of collagen production and gives your face an even complexion. Acne problem can be treated using chemical peels and these peels can be used even on hands and neck. Nevertheless, there are some side effects that are caused by chemical peels as well.

 

Side-effects caused by Chemical peels

1. Use of chemical peels on the face sometimes causes scarring, characteristically on the lower part of the face. The appearance of the scars can be reduced using steroid medications and antibiotics.

2. The common side effects that are caused by the use of chemical peels are itching, redness and swelling of the skin.

3. Sometimes the color of the skin gets a little more darkened by using chemical peels or even lighter than normal and this condition is permanent.

4. The herpes virus that causes cold sores is flared up by use of chemical peels.

5. Carbolic acid is used in deep chemical peels and it can damage the heart muscles and even cause irregular heartbeat.

6. Carbolic acid or phenol used in the peels can harm the liver and kidneys. Hence, to avoid its side-effects the peel must be used at an interval of 10 to 20 minutes.

 

Who should not use a chemical peel?

1. Chemical peels are not advised for people who have been taking acne medication for the past 6 months or for people having dark complexion.

2. People with freckles and pale complexion or red hair must not use chemical peels

3. You should not use chemical peels if you have a history of severe outbreaks of cold sores.

4. People having abnormal skin pigmentation or facial warts must also not use chemical peels. 

If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a dermatologist and ask a free question.

All About Using Sunscreen

MBBS, MD - Dermatology, F.C.P.S.(Dermatology, Venereology & Leprosy), Diploma in Venerology & Dermatology (DVD), DNB (Dermatology)

All About Using Sunscreen

The sunscreen acts as a layer of defense against sun radiation and keeps it from causing any damage. It is tremendously important to stress upon the importance of using sunscreen. Using a sunscreen every time you step outdoors and using it correctly is of vital importance to have healthy skin. No sunscreen provides absolute protection from the harmful rays of the sun, but using the right product in the right way will take you far in shielding yourself from their harshness.

Two important facts about sunscreen are:

  1. You don't need to apply sunscreen if your makeup contains SPF - If any of your makeup products like foundation or powder contains SPF, do not assume that it can replace your sunscreen. Makeup containing SPF cannot protect your skin entirely as cosmetics are generally applied lightly and mostly doesn't cover places like T-zones, earlobes or hairline. To fully shield your skin from the sunrays, it's necessary to apply sunscreen or moisturizer with at least SPF 30 before putting makeup on. It is advisable to apply the sunscreen half an hour before stepping out for maximum benefit.
  2. You do not need to apply sunscreen in winters or when you are indoors - Winter skin is relatively more sensitive than summer skin which is tanned. If one is in hilly areas or snow covered regions there is reflection of UV light from the snow that causes more skin damage. Also glass can allow UV rays to pass through and indoor lighting can also be a source of UV exposure, therefore you should apply sunscreen even when you are indoors.

Following are the do's and don'ts you need to follow before you apply sunscreen:

  1. Do: Choose a sunscreen that is, at least, SPF 30+: That is the minimum protection that your skin requires. And if you must stay outdoors for an extended period of time, opt for a product with a higher SPF rating.
  2. Do: Apply sunscreen 15-30 minutes before going outdoors: For the product to be most effective, it needs to be fully absorbed by the skin before exposure to the sun; the reason why applying approximately 30 minutes before you step out of home is a must.
  3. Don't: Apply sunscreen only on the face: Make sure you apply it to every part of your body, especially the hands, forearms, thighs and ears, which are commonly exposed to the sun. Not only are these more prone to skin ageing, but the risk of melanoma (skin cancer) is also tremendously high in these portions of the body.

Key Points to Slow Down Aging

Key Points to Slow Down Aging

Aging is an aspect that plagues one and all with its various signs hitting the skin, senses, body and hair.

To slow down aging is not only about looking young, but also feeling young and having a longer, more enjoyable quality of life. A healthier and better you is definitely a younger you. Here's how you can get there:

  1. Live happier: Life is a constant struggle. From unexpected changes to life altering moments, we constantly face stress, tension and sometimes depression. Those who we know living a happy life also face the same situations. The difference is how they choose to find happiness despite facing adversities. Stress speeds up the aging process. When you are stressed, it creates an imbalance of hormones causing collateral damage. To cut down stress, spend more time doing things that make you happy. Choose a hobby like painting or stress busters like yoga and exercise.
  2. Water is the secret sauce: We've heard it a hundred times that having 8 glasses of water a day can do us good, but this is one reason that is going to get you running to that jug in your kitchen much faster. Human body is made of 60% water and it is a key ingredient to keep our organs functioning smooth. It'll improve your digestive system, keep your bowels running up and smooth, help flush out toxins from the body and improve the moisture content in your skin which in turn will keep it soft and supple. The trick is to also know when to have water. Starting your day with a couple of glasses of lukewarm water and never have it with your meals.
  3. Eat fruits & vegetables: It is important to eat the right serving of fruits and vegetables daily, as they are rich source of vitamins and minerals and protect your skin from free radicals and cellular damage. From cucumber and tomato to fruits like papaya, each provides it own set of exfoliating benefits, which firm up your skin, improve your complexion, get rid of fine lines and slows down the aging naturally.

5 Habits of Women With Great Skin

5 Habits of Women With Great Skin

Healthy, glowing skin is what they call 'neighbour's envy, owner's pride'. Stop being jealous janet and get off your chair because you need to do a little homework to get that glowing skin. Some women look like they have inherited the glow without a day's work but in reality, good skin is a result of constant care and solutions that suit them right. Here are some fail proof techniques that women with great skin follow.

1. They cleanse it right: Cleansing the skin is almost done like a ritual. It has its set of rules which differ from skin to skin. As a base rule, women with good complexion do it at least twice a day - once in the morning and once before bed. It helps clear the oil, dirt, impurities and make up that clogs the pores and lets the skin breath. Use lukewarm water and a creamy cleanser. Let the cleanser sit on your skin for a minute while you gently rub it in before you wash off. This is one step women with good skin simply don't miss.

2. They remember their ctm: You know what the c stands for, now you need to follow it with a toning and moisturizing ritual to keep your skin soft and supple. Learn to differentiate between night and day moisturizers. You day moisturizer needs to contribute to your spf protection while your night moisturizer should be hydrating.

3. They use a good night cream: Night time is when your skin gets to relax and rejuvenate. Help this process by adding a good night cream to your daily ritual. A retinoid cream, for example, is a vitamin a derivative rich in collagen which helps in skin repair. They can also help reduce the occurrence of fine lines and pimples.

4. They work on their blemishes: Some have puffy eyes, others have dark circles or sun spots and may be even a couple of wrinkles here and there. But all these flaws can be steadily worked upon on a daily basis to reduce the skin problems and prevent appearance of new ones.

5. They follow the antioxidant mantra: Foods rich in omega 3 and antioxidant-rich foods like blueberries, green leafy veggies, and green tea help reduce the effects of aging to add a youthful glow to the skin.

Mosquito bites shouldn't leave you with scars (pits) until they are getting infected because of scratches, harsh soap or too much lemon usage. Marks if recent and not scratched should go in 2-3 days. If you are having black marks being left behind and they are staying more than 3 weeks; consult a dermatologist.

For females most common cause of hair fall is nutritional deficiency and hormonal imbalance. Hair fall can be reduced or brought under control by improving your diet. Try taking balanced and on time meals. Include sprouts, fruits, leafy vegetable and some dryfruits regularly in your diet. Wash with mild shampoo to avoid damage to already weak hair shaft. If hair fall persists after these measures consult a qualified dermatologist. In the meantime use a mild shampoo and avoid conditioner if it leads to excess hair fall on the days you use a conditioner.

You must be applying more than required quantity and duration of gel leading to dryness and redness. Stop using it and then apply moisturiser and sunscreen 5-6 times a day for next couple of days. Once the skin goes back to normal you can use the gel again for only 5-7 min however alight plus is not lkely to be for acne and may lead to temprary as well as permanent side effects if it has a steroid. Don't use it if it has not been prescribed to you by a dermatologist.

Wart is a viral infection and not to be neglected. Please consult a dermatologist. You may also be having seborrhoeic keratosis they look like warts but need a different treatment. Blackheads if mild can be reduced with salycylic acid based face wash. Lot of blackheads with sk will definitely needed treatment under dermatologist care.

For a teenager to loose hair quickly, nutritional deficiency need to be taken care off. If you are choosy about your diet, pay attention to that and include more of sprouts, milk, fruits, some dry fruits in your diet. For dandruff in scalp use antidandruff shampoo. If after following this you still see lot of hair fall; consult a qualified dermatologist.

Hives is the common name for urticaria. If you tend to have swelling around lips and/or around eyes or any breathing difficulty, hives lasting for more than 24 hours; you need to definitely consult a dermatologist. Mild occasional /rare episode after dust/ temperature change etc can be managed with moisturizers and lactocalamine. Presence of extensive itching severe enough to distract you.

Pimples commonly occur on oily skin or if you are using wrong (not suiting to your skin type) products. If your pimples are occassional and mild using a faace wash for oily skin will help. If pimples are severe and leaving you with marks/ scars better consult a dermatologist. Darkness during summers is commonly because of tanning. Start using a gel based sunscreen daily and increase amount of vit c in your diet for that.
