Bathing Soap vs. Body Wash: What’s Better When You Take a Shower?

Bathing Soap vs. Body Wash

The most important part of skincare is keeping your skin cleansed and fresh. But before that, it is imperative to find the right product for the same. Skin type varies from person to person, and hence finding skincare goods most suited to your skin makes all the difference.

Bathing habits directly affect the quality of your skin, which involves picking the appropriate cleanse; i. E. Choosing between a body soap and body wash. Each has a different set of characteristics and comes with its own set of advantages and disadvantages. Let’s find out which one is better for your skin.

Why you should choose bathing soap bar:

  •  it is more effective in removing dirt through deep cleansing
  •  it is suited to skin that is excessively oily in nature as it contains ingredients that are highly effective in stripping off excess oil from the skin

Why you should not choose bathing soap bar:

  •  it tends to strip the skin of its natural oils and moisture, making it dry and flaky
  •  it is unhygienic in case of sharing between individuals as soaps tend to accumulate the dirt from your skin due to direct body contact

Reasons to pick a body wash:

  •  it has a very mild and gentle effect on the skin in comparison to soaps
  •  it keeps the skin moisturized by preserving natural oils
  •  it is more hygienic than bar soaps in case of interpersonal sharing
  •  it is the most suitable option for dry skin

Reasons to ditch a body wash:

  •  it contains a large amount of artificial additives and preservatives that can do more harm to your skin than good, giving rise to allergic reactions in some cases

So, who’s the winner of the two?

You must certainly base the choice on what’s best for your skin type. Body soap is more compatible with oily skin while dry skin is better suited for body wash. A body wash, however, is much more gentle on your skin.

Impetigo – 9 Factors that Can Trigger it

impetigo-treatment

Impetigo is a type of skin infection and general dermatology commonly seen in children and rarely in adults. It is contagious in nature; bacteria like staphylococcus aureus and at times, streptococcus pyogenes, are responsible for the occurrence of this infection. Generally, the face, hand and neck regions of the children get affected. Impetigo can be classified into two kinds: non-bullous impetigo or impetigo contagiosa and bullous impetigo.

Non-bullous impetigo appears like red sores, which burst rapidly, leaving behind a brownish yellow crust and is more contagious in nature. Bullous impetigo, on the other hand, is generally painless and the blisters are fluid-filled.

The causes of impetigo are as follows

  1. Warm and humid climate may trigger impetigo
  2. Contact with an infected child can spread the infection to a healthy child.
  3. Cuts or injuries can be responsible for impetigo
  4. Sports like football and wrestling can also sometimes lead to impetigo.
  5. Insect bite and skin rashes
  6. Prolonged use of diapers
  7. Skin problems like eczema or burns
  8. Skin inflammation may also result in impetigo.
  9. At times, animal bites may also result in impetigo.

Impetigo is generally noticed in children belonging to the age group of two-five years. Some of the most common symptoms of impetigo are mentioned below

  1. Blisters that are filled with fluid
  2. Red colored sores can pop out on the infected region
  3. Itching sensation
  4. Lymph nodes may become swollen
  5. Pus may come out from the sores
  6. Sometimes the sores may look like pimples

Impetigo, though easily curable, must not be ignored as it can spread rapidly to the other parts of your body.

All About Laser Photofacial

all-about-laser-photofacial-skinology

This interesting technique is a term for the treatment of your skin for various conditions using a light-based technology. It is mostly used for the face and neck areas. It is also known as a foto facial, facial rejuvenation and photo rejuvenation.

How Does Laser Photofacial Works?

An intense pulsed light (IPL) is beamed at the skin in controlled broad spectrum light waves that are aimed at either the hemoglobin or the melanin and penetrate deep into the skin. This light breaks the wall of the blood vessel or the melanin pigment, causing them to be absorbed by the body. Therefore, the basic principle behind this versatile skin procedure is the heating and stimulation of the dermis, while protecting and cooling the epidermis.

What is it used for?

The intense pulsed light (IPL) is used to primarily boost collagen, fix brown spots and broken capillaries, but there also other uses:

1. Lightening and removal of sun spots or age spots

2. Reducing redness or rosacea

3. Controlling flushing

4. Reduction of oiliness

5. Lightening of acne scars

6. Freckled skin

7. Smoothening of uneven skin texture

The duration of the treatment depends on the extent of the issue and damage caused and how your skin responds in return. It is a cheaper alternative to plastic surgery and much gentler and completely non-invasive too. It is a quick procedure that lasts about thirty minutes. It is a painless procedure with some mild discomfort that may be felt, like a rubber band snapping. Therefore, there is minimal risk of complications and recovery time is almost immediate. Slight redness of skin is the most common side effect that may be seen, but that too fades in a while.

You would need 3-5 treatments over a span of few months in order to get optimal results. Improvement with each procedure is noted and monitored. It is one of the safest light-based treatments available out there, with positive results. With this procedure, come away feeling younger with a blemish free, glowing face.

Types Of Burns That You Should Know About

types-of-burns-that-you-should-know-about-skinologyBurns are common injuries faced by almost everyone at some point of their life. Most burns are recoverable without serious health consequences depending on the degree of injury. However, some burns can be more dangerous as they might lead to excess damage of the skin cells. Such cases would require immediate emergency medical care to prevent further complications that might lead to an excessive damage of the body part or death.

So what are the degrees of burn and what to do when you have them?

First Degree: Skin turns red without blisters.

First degree burns affect the outermost layer of the skin and cause negligible damage to the skin. They can normally be treated under minimal home care such as applying cold water.

Second Degree: Skin thickens along with blisters.

They are more serious than first degrees. Some blisters might pop, giving the skin a wet appearance. When you do experience a second degree burn, you immediately put the affected skin under cold water for 10-15 minutes.

Third Degree: Skin thickens throughout the damaged part with a white leathery appearance. Third degree burns can be extremely serious and therefore it is advised never to self-treat cases of third degree burns. Call or visit a doctor immediately.

Fourth Degree: An extension of the third degree along with the injury reaching up to the tendons and bones. Emergency medical supervision is essential for fourth degree burns.

Causes of Burns: There can be several causes of burn injuries rather than just touching hot objects accidentally. Such causes can be classified as under-

A. Thermal Burns: Results from explosions, hot liquids, flame or contact with hot materials like coal or glass.

B. Chemical Burns: Results from strongly acidic or alkaline chemicals.

C. Electrical Burns: Results from electricity such as electric wires, electric meters, etc.

D. Radiological Burns: Results from radiation.

Overall Prevention of Burns – The best method of fighting burns is to stop them from occurring. Certain jobs can put you at greater risks of burns. Nevertheless, it is always better to take preventive care to avoid them. Preventive care includes the following:

• Keep children away from kitchen

• Install fire extinguisher in or near kitchen or near vulnerable areas in workplace.

• Replace smoke detectors on time

• Cover electric outlets

• Discard electric cords with exposed wires

• Wear gloves while handling chemicals.

Treating An Abscess

treating-an-abscess-skinology

An abscess is a tender, swollen area within the body tissue that contains pus and debris. Pus is a thick fluid comprising of white blood cells, bacteria and dead tissue. It is painful to touch and can appear anywhere in your body such as your groin, your armpits (axillae), around your tooth (dental abscess), anus and vagina (Bartholin gland abscess) or at the base of your spine (pilonidal abscess).

There are three different ways to treat an abscess depending upon the size and type of abscess. Sometimes, skin abscesses can get better and drain naturally without medical treatment through self-care measures such as hot compresses for half an hour, four times a day. The three ways to remove abscesses thought medical treatment are-

1. Antibiotics- An abscess is caused by staph bacteria that is unaffected by most antibiotics. Initially, prescribed antibiotics can only cure common infections since the bacteria are not identified. However, once the identification from a pus sample is done, the antibiotics prescribed are for a more focused type of bacteria. However, sometimes antibiotics are not enough to clear skin abscesses completely and they may keep growing or reoccur.

2. Incision and Drainage– A small operation needs to be carried out by the doctor during the incision and drainage treatment. Local anaesthesia is administered to the patient to numb the area around the abscess. Firstly the doctor cuts the abscess, draining out the pus. The pus may be used for testing. Following this, the wound is cleaned by a sterile saline solution and is then covered in wound dressing, allowing any newly formed pus to drain away.

3. Surgery– You may also need to undergo surgery if the drainage treatment has not been able to remove all the pus. The type of surgery, however, depends upon the size and location of the abscess and may require creation of a bigger incision in your body to wash the pus out completely.

All About Facelift Surgeries

all-about-facelift-surgeries-skinology

Facelift, also known as Rhytidectomy, is a surgical method used to remove excess facial skin to improve visible signs of ageing. Facelift may also be combined with eyelid surgery or other procedures and is usually performed under twilight sleep or general anesthesia.

Facial areas under facelift include:

• Sagging in the middle of the face

• Deep creases under the eyes

• Deep creases joining the nose to the corners of the face

• Fallen or disappeared fat

• Areas of uneven skin tone

• Excess fatty deposits or loose skin, giving the appearance of a double chin

Process of facelift surgery

A number of different procedures of facelift surgery exist, depending on the type of incision, area of face or invasiveness.

The conventional facelift surgery is performed through incisions made from the hairline to the temporal region (in front of the ear). The incision curves behind the back of the ear and ends near the hairline at the neck. The underlying tissues are then separated from the skin of the cheek and neck with scissors or a scalpel.

At this stage, deeper tissues are constricted through sutures, with or without the removal of excess deeper tissues, the amount of which is determined by the know-how and judgment of the surgeon. Finally, the excess skin is removed and the skin is redraped and incisions closed through staples and sutures.

Surgical techniques that invade deeper tissues, rather than just the skin or fat, also show similar results.

Types of Facelift Surgeries

SMAS lift: Re-suspension and securing of the Superficial Musculo Aponeurotic System layer, by counteracting gravity caused by laxity and aging.

Deep-plane facelift: A modification of the SMAS lift in which deepening of the nasolabial fold is corrected more accurately by freeing cheek fat and muscles from the bone implement.

Composite facelift: Characterized by the extra repositioning and fixation of the muscles of orbicularis oculi.

Mid-face lift: Improves lines between nose to mouth and roundedness of the cheek muscles.

Thread lift: Used in treating sagging eyes, folded regions of the forehead and nasolabial areas.
