Prepare Your Skin For A Stunning Valentines Day Glow

Being a girl is hard sometimes!

Why? Well, because special occasions like Valentine’s Day take a lot more of preparation than simply choosing greeting cards and chocolates.

How? We want to look good, yeah, all the time. And Valentine’s Day is so much special, one because it is the day of love and two, because we want to look effortlessly pretty for the special someone.

Girls, we have always got your back. Here you go with everything essential you need to know and look dreamlike simply because you want to turn heads wherever you go.

Skin Preparation
We know you have carefully kept your new makeup products in your makeup bag as you are saving them for special occasion. But you should know that irrespective of your skin type, it can be unpredictable at times. Even the expensive makeup items can be a reason for skin allergy or reactions. Therefore, you must try all the skin products in advance to save you from any unwanted situation on the day itself. Also, if you’re going to try a new facial or a new face treatment, you should do it at least a fortnight before the D Day.

Exfoliation
Exfoliation is a great way to reduce the dead skin and have healthy pores. Oh, but wait! Did you ever notice that you get redness on your skin or bruises when you go for dermabrasion? So, ladies please don’t exfoliate your skin on the same day whether you are doing it at home or getting it done from a professional. Even if you don’t have redness or bruises, the exfoliation may leave your skin sensitive and the skin products may hurt & create tiny bumps on your skin. So, do it well in advance, may be a week ago. Another common mistake girls make is using the same exfoliant/scrub for your body and your face. Your facial skin is quite sensitive than that of other body parts.

Massage
When we talk about skin preparation massage is the most gentle and relaxing way. Face & body massage improves the blood circulation Massage To start preparing the skin, there’s nothing better than going to a spa and getting a face and body massage.  If you’re too busy, no worries, you can do this yourself.  Using the tips of your fingers massage your skin in circular motion and always going upwards.  You can use Argan oil for dry skin or cotton extract lotion for sensitive/oily skin.

Face Mask
Special occasions demand special attention. Try the dark chocolate mask for a deep relaxation. The good thing is that you can make it yourself at home. Heat the dark chocolate in a bowl to melt it, shouldn’t be too hot though. Mix in some almond oil and one egg yolk. Apply it gently on your face and neck and let it rest for 15-20 minutes. Finally you can wash it with lukewarm water.  Now be ready to get ultra smooth, soft & supple skin.

Hair Care
Let’s face it. No matter how good your skin is or make up is but no look can be complete without healthy & shiny hair.  Try this homemade hair mask for lustrous and bouncy tresses. Mash one ripe banana, add in one tbl. spoon of organic honey and olive oil. Mix it well or you can blend it if you want. Apply it generously all over your hair; allow it to stay on for at least half an hour. Then you can wash your hair with your regular shampoo and there you have it. Super shiny and gorgeous hair!

We bet these tips would make you look your best self. Just let loose and feel the love you’re surrounded with. Smile & conquer the world!

Winter Acne: How to Deal With It

Did you think acne only break out in summer? Are you surprised why you have to deal with acne even in winter? Well, there can be many possible reasons to have acne problem even in winter.

Stay Hydrated
So, the main reason of why acne is bothering you in winter is less consumption of water. As Dr. Nivedita Dadu says, ‘’ Our skin becomes dry because of the cold winter weather. Please ensure that you drink plenty of water to keep yourself hydrated and flush the toxins.’’

Keep your face clean
The one thing that you need to take care of is to use a face cleanser which doesn’t dry out your skin and rather a hydrating one. The moist winter air can easily clog your pores with various pollutants. Cleansing and exfoliating is necessary for facial hygiene.

Moisturize, Moisturize & Moisturize
Yes, we can’t emphasize enough on how important it is to keep your skin moisturized in winter. A common mistake most girls do is to use a moisturizer which is oil based. If you have an oily skin, you should prefer using water based moisturizer or a facial gel. However, having an oily skin doesn’t mean you can skip the moisturizing part. We at Skinology also suggest using facials or face packs which deeply nourish your skin. Fruit packs or facials are good for all skin types.

Avoid too much Exfoliation
Of course you need to exfoliate your skin in winter as well but excessive exfoliation can drain the essential oils from your skin and make it dry. Too much dryness can be a reason for winter breakouts.

Exercise and Rejuvenate
Just because it’s winter, you can’t skip your morning routine. It might seem to be a great effort to wake and go for a walk in the cold outside, so what? You can exercise indoors, maybe you can do yoga or dance. However, staying indoors all the time isn’t advisable because if you take in refreshing morning air it will rejuvenate your skin and keep winter breakouts away from you.

What not to do
Small things/changes make all the difference.

  • Do not take long hot showers; you can rather use lukewarm water.
  • Do not use oily cosmetics or skin care products.
  • Strong perfumes or products with pungent fragrances shall be avoided as it can cause skin irritation.
  • Do not pick on acne.

Dandruff & Oiling

Dandruff & Oiling

Dandruff is not something that you can catch from someone else. It is an embarrassing condition but also a major cause for hairfall and hair weakening. It is estimated to affect as many as one in five individuals in India. You’re said to suffer from the problem of dandruff when the skin renewal cycle of your scalp accelerates all of a sudden. This brings about the development of patches of dead skin on your scalp surface and the resultant dry, skin flakes called dandruff.
The causes of this very common problem can be:

  • Having dry skin can also cause dandruff to develop, which are less oily and smaller in nature.
  • Even irritated oily skin, more commonly known as seborrheic dermatitis can cause you to suffer from these white skin flakes. The problem can be easily identified by its distinguishing yellow or white flakes over the red greasy skin surface.
  • Not shampooing your hair regularly can cause skin cells and oils to build up in the scalp leading to the outbreak of dandruff.
  • Sensitivity to certain hair care products and the presence of Malassezia (a type of fungus) are other causes that can lead to dandruff problems.

Oiling your hair is the most effective measure that you can take against this scalp problem. While the ideal time to do this is at night so that you can wash it off the next morning, one should also remember that hair oil shouldn’t be left on the hair for over 24 hours. Additionally, dry scalp makes it very easy for dandruff to develop as the oil-secreting glands found in the scalp’s epidermal layers produce low or no natural oil. Application of oil helps in keeping the scalp nourished as well as enables glands to produce oil. But leaving it on for more than the recommended hours can intensify your dandruff problem and further accelerate the hair fall process.

Symptoms, Treatment and Complications of Dermatitis Herpetiformis

Treatment of Dermatitis Herpetiformis

Dermatitis Herpetiformis is a condition in which there are constant and painful eruptions of rashes and subsequent itching. They mostly develop on the knees, scalps, buttocks and the back. This rash is indicative of your allergy to gluten. A strict adherence to a gluten-free diet is essential for people suffering from this disease. The primary cause of dermatitis herpetiformis is celiac disease.

Celiac Disease:
Gluten is a protein which is present in wheat and rye. People who have allergy to gluten are said to be suffering from Celiac disease. Dermatitis Herpetiformis, in turn, occurs in people who suffer from Celiac disease. An antibody called immunoglobulin, made to combat with gluten proteins reacts with gluten causing violent eruptions of rashes and subsequent bouts of itching.

There are various, perceptible symptoms of dermatitis herpetiformis. Some of them are:

1. Sensation of Burning: Before visible rashes appear on the body, your skin may suffer from a constant sensation of burning. The area where it does take place is where the rashes erupt later on.

2. Outbreak of Rash: One of the most common conditions symptomatic of dermatitis herpetiformis is an outbreak of rashes in the elbows, shoulders and scalp. These rashes are an extreme cause of discomfort as they itch continuously. If you notice rashes on these parts of the body that recover themselves only to erupt again later, chances are high that you are suffering from dermatitis herpetiformis.

3. Bumps: Along with rashes, another important symptom of dermatitis herpetiformis is the eruption of even sized bumps all over the body. They are filled with liquids which have the ability to heal themselves but they quickly re-appear, leaving behind a purple color mark on the body.

Though various treatments have developed to treat dermatitis herpetiformis, there are many medical complications that this disease entails. Some of them are:

1. Intestinal Cancer: Celiac disease causes damage of the intestines. Therefore if you are suffering from it for a long time, the continuous inflammation of the intestine causes intestinal cancer.

2. Anemia: If you are suffering from dermatitis herpetiformis, the intestines refuse to absorb nutrients. If such a condition persists, chances are you may suffer from anemia and deficiencies of certain vitamins.

If you wish to discuss about any specific skin problem, you can consult a specialized dermatologist and visit to us at https://www.skinology.in/

Know How to Identify The Right Moisturizer For Your Skin Type

right-moisturizer-for-skin

Which moisturiser will work best for your skin type?

Moisturisers are extremely essential during winters for keeping your skin soft and hydrated. The chief function of moisturisers is to ensure that the outermost layer of your skin can hold water to prevent the skin from becoming dry and charred. But, any moisturiser you choose randomly might not be effective for your skin. For making the most of your moisturiser choose one that is suitable for your specific skin type. Read on to find about the correct type of moisturisers required for each skin type.

1. Dry skin

Dry skin becomes even drier during the winters and requires a heavier, oil-based moisturiser with hydrating ingredients to remain soft. Additionally, if your skin is too dry or cracked, using products containing mineral jellies like petroleum jelly will be beneficial. This is because these products are known to minimise evaporation of moisture from your skin.

2. Oily skin

Acne and breakouts mostly occur on the oily skin, so it will be best to choose a light, water-based moisturiser if you have this type of skin. Moreover, try to opt for a product that is non-comedogenic in nature, which will ensure that you do not get clogged pores due to the moisturiser.

3. Normal skin

Normal skin can be characterised by perfect natural oil balance and an even tone. For keeping your skin soft you need to keep this natural balance intact, which can be done by using a water-based product containing lightweight oils or ingredients derived from silicon. Additionally, ensure that your moisturiser gives your skin a light non-greasy feel.

4. Sensitive skin

Sensitive skin is generally prone to skin irritations, itching, redness and rashes. If you have sensitive skin, then look for a moisturiser that contains ingredients known for generating a soothing effect like chamomile or aloe. Moreover, ensure that the product is free from potential allergens like fragrances or dyes and acids to prevent side effects such as skin irritation.

5. Combination skin

Combination skin is the toughest type of skin to maintain. People with this type of skin have an oily t-zone consisting of the nose, chin and forehead along with the cheeks having dry skin. To keep combination skin hydrated you need to use a heavy moisturiser on the cheeks and an oil-free water-based product on the t-zone.
