Glowing Skin: Treatment, Procedure, Cost and Side Effects

What is the treatment?

No matter what your skin type is, healthy skin emanates a natural glow. However, when the skin is not healthy or taken care of well enough, then it can look dull and lifeless. This can affect your natural pallor and even make you look unwell. Fortunately, there are many ways to bring back the natural lustre of your skin, and most of the treatments are fairly easy to employ all by yourself. The treatment or the products you must use will depend largely on your skin type and the reason why it looks so dull.

There are many treatment options available to help you restore your glowing skin. In order to know what kinds of products you should use, you should first assess the problems faced by your skin. If your skin is looking dull due to acne and its scars, you can treat your skin with facewash that is designed specifically for acne prone skin. There are also various ointments and creams that can be used to treat your skin.

If your skin is looking dull because of dryness, you can always get moisturizers and lotions in order to quench your skin’s thirst. Once your skin begins to feel hydrated, it will also look hydrated and begin to glow. Skin oils and masks are also items that can be used to treat your skin and restore its glow.

How is the treatment done?

Once you have figured out why your skin looks dull, you can begin to treat it accordingly. If you are having trouble identifying the cause of the dullness, then you can visit a dermatologist or a skin care clinic to let professionals have a look at it. They can help you understand your skin’s needs so that you can treat it in an effective manner.

Skin oils or face oils are one of the most popular ways today to make your skin glow. Enriched with minerals and vitamins, these oils can be massaged into your skin to restore its health and make it glow. Over time, as your skin soaks in the nutrients, you will need to use it lesser. Face oils can be used as per your convenience, either during the day or night, or when you travel. Moisturizers and lotions that are rich in Vitamin E are also great for your skin as they hydrate it and make it softer. If your skin is dull because it’s dry, then these treatment options will suit you the most.

If your skin is dull due to acne, using anti acne treatments can help you. There are many face washes that are rich in ingredients such as neem and astringents and are great for acne prone skin and oily skin. Face peel masks and mud packs are great for exfoliating your skin and pushing in important nutrients respectively.

Dull skin can also occur due to harmful pollutants in the environment. They attack the skin, making it look unhealthy and parched. Using protective products such as creams rich in SPF can help shield your skin from pollutants. You can also use a cleanser or toner at the end of the day to pull out the dirt and grime from the day.

Who is eligible for the treatment? (When is the treatment done?)

If you are concerned about the way your skin looks, you should seek out treatment.

Who is not eligible for the treatment?

If you are allergic to certain products or ingredients, then you may not be able to use certain treatments to make your skin glow.

Are there any side effects?

Some products can cause side effects such as a rash, itching, or burning sensation. Performing a patch test is the best way to determine whether or not a product is suiting your skin. It is advisable to take off anything you may have used immediately if it’s causing problems on your skin.

What are the post-treatment guidelines?

Making certain lifestyle changes can always go a long way in keeping your skin looking healthy and protecting its natural glow. Stay away from oily foods, and fried foods as they are unhealthy and have a negative impact on your skin. Similarly, sugary foods or processed foods are also not good for your skin. What you eat will always reflect on your face so it is vital to take care.

How long does it take to recover?

It can take up to a month for results of a specific skin care regime to show properly on your skin.

What is the price of the treatment in India?

Skin care products can cost anywhere between Rs. 150 – Rs. 5,000, depending on the brand you choose and the products you need.

Are the results of the treatment permanent?

If you continue to follow your skin care regime with vigour, then the results can be permanent.

What are the alternatives to the treatment?

You can also use home remedies to restore the pallor and glow of your skin. Although they take longer to work when compared with cosmetic products from the market, they are equally as effective and in some cases, better for you. Using home remedies is quite easy. For instance, if you have acne prone skin, you can use a face mask made of turmeric and honey. Turmeric has antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties that help get rid of pimples while the honey lightens the scars they leave behind. Similarly, a scrub with oats, yoghurt, and honey also helps for the same problem. Using a cold compress to temporarily relieve yourself of any inflammation caused by a disease or extreme itching can also help. Certain types of essential oils that have anti-inflammatory properties can also be used to massage onto your skin to relieve yourself of the symptoms. Lavender oil, lemon oil, and clove oil are good options to consider.

Rainy Season - 7 Skin Care Tips For It!
Monsoon is a season that brings respite from the sweltering heat and ushers in joy. But at the same time the season also brings along diseases and a threat to the skin and hair. However, all it requires is a little effort from your part to keep your skin glowing and healthy. Some of these are- Wash your Face Daily: The pores of your skin tend to get clogged with dirt and pollutants during monsoon causing the outbreak of pimples and rashes. Therefore it is imperative to wash your face two to three times a day to avert these eruptions. You can also use a toner in case you have dry skin to keep the pores clean. Use Moisturizer: Though using a moisturizer is almost always associated with winter, it is equally important to use it during monsoon especially during the nights. Night is the time when the skin tries to repair itself on its own, therefore applying moisturizer helps in averting the wrinkles and maintains the glow of the skin. Exfoliation of the Skin: Monsoon is the time when your skin requires the most pampering therefore an exfoliation at least once in every week will help you to keep the dead cells away, consequently helping you to keep your skin glowing and soft. Apply Sunscreen: Similar to a moisturizer, a sunscreen is a product whose benefits are strictly associated with summer. But that is not rather should not be the case. During monsoon, even though the rays of the sun may not seem harsh, it can as well damage your skin; therefore applying a sunscreen should be something you must not miss. Eat Green Vegetables: Your skin reflects not only the benefits of the cosmetic products that you apply on it, but also what you eat. Eating oily and junk products show their mark on the skin sooner than later, therefore the trick is to stay away from them and indulge in green vegetables. Your skin will inevitably show the benefits soon. Eat Fruits: The benefits of eating green vegetables and fruits go hand in hand. Rich in antioxidants, fruits help in maintaining the luster of your skin. Drink Lots of Water: Water has plenty of advantages and it takes care of the skin, health as well as hair. Drinking plenty of water during monsoon takes care of the skin and keeps the glow.

Ghee - Why It Is An Important Part Of Your Diet?

Ghee - Why It Is An Important Part Of Your Diet?
Desi ghee is a powerhouse of vitamins and fatty acids which promote good health. It is an ancient remedy for cough, cold and soft skin, but in the last few years, the credibility of saturated fats like desi ghee has been in question. There are some people who believe that saturated fats are the bad fats but a recent research and majority of health experts agree that naturally occurring saturated fats present in desi ghee are actually good for your health. Here are 8 amazing health benefits of desi ghee: Builds Strong Bones: Desi ghee is one of the few foods that are rich in Vitamin K, especially Vitamin K2. Vitamin K2 helps the body to utilize essential minerals, including calcium and thus improves bone health and development. Also, the right amount of desi ghee helps eliminate tooth decay. Another function of desi ghee is to keep joints and connective tissues lubricated, increasing flexibility. Immune System Booster: Desi ghee is packed with Vitamin A which helps eliminate free radicals in the body. Vitamin A is linked to the proper functioning of the immune system. That s not all; Vitamin A is a powerful antioxidant that may help prevent certain types of cancer, especially ulcerative colitis that could otherwise lead to colon cancer. Boosts Energy Levels: Since experts recommend that athletes should use desi ghee as a consistent energy source, we can take the same advice. The fatty acids in desi ghee are quickly processed by the liver and broken into energy. Apart from boosting metabolism and energy levels, desi ghee aids in the body s absorption of fat-soluble vitamins like A, D, E and K, which enhance stamina. High Smoking Point: While being processed, desi ghee can endure a higher smoking point compared to coconut oil or extra virgin olive oil. This means that it won't break into free radicals till the temperature rises to 482 Fahrenheit. These villainous free radicals are unstable molecules that create havoc on our health, from premature aging to cancer. So when you consume desi ghee your risk levels of ingesting those villains are extremely low. Improves Digestive Tract: Desi ghee is rich in butyric acid. A study reveals that people with unhealthy digestive tract don t naturally produce butyric acid. Since good digestion is a key to good health, it s essential to incorporate foods rich in butyric acid into your diet to aid digestion. This acid nourishes cells in the intestines, reduces leakage of undigested food particles and aids in the repair of the mucosal wall. Reduces Inflammation: Butyric acid is one of the major fatty acids that the body needs to fight inflammation, especially in the gastrointestinal tract. Patients suffering from ulcerative colitis, Crohn's disease or other inflammatory bowel diseases would be adviced to include desi ghee in their diet. According to Ayurveda, gently rubbing desi ghee on cranky joints can help soothe inflammation, lubricate joints and banish arthritis stiffness. Keeps Your Eyes Healthy: The vitamin A present in desi ghee improves eye health and this reduces several eye-related health problems. This powerful antioxidant reduces the risk of macular degeneration and the development of cataract. The fatty acid in ghee augments the body s absorption of this important vitamin as well as other nutrients. Healthier Skin: Desi ghee s natural properties can keep skin moisturized for a long period of time. It penetrates deep into the skin to keep it hydrated; dry skin accelerates premature aging, including wrinkles, fine lines and saggy skin. To avoid this, one can generously massage lukewarm desi ghee on the skin, keep it for 10 mins and take a shower. Regular usage will give you a lasting, glowing skin. So, by now you must have understood that desi ghee is not our foe but a good friend that everyone should have. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!
