Skin damage for facial and hair is crucial to avoid because you can have ingredients in products that don’t suit your skin. Therefore, checking out the ingredients on the label is highly recommended before buying.

Avoid Premature Aging: One of the main reasons for getting premature aging on skin is using high chemical products that don’t have significant purposes. You may use many skin products from a beauty supplier, thinking they will improve your skin condition. But it ends up being more challenging to get back the older and purer skin.

Premature aging occurs due to dryness, unhealthy lifestyle, and using such lower quality beauty products. So, make sure you are safe from those sources.

Avoid Pigmentation: Pigmentation, dark spots, and other facial problems are nowadays prevalent in people. It happens because they fail to choose the right products. You can save money by purchasing lower quality products, but it will cost you more money in the future to fix the skin’s damaged condition.

Get the Desired Result: Since you are obsessed with improving your beauty or skin’s poor condition. So, you tend to pick skincare products from the shop or online. But what’s the point of buying non-branded products containing so many chemical substances, which are threatening for the skin?

If you want the desired result, consider buying products that worth your budget.

How Dairy gives You Acne
Everyone who's fighting acne, doubts this at some point in time. 'Does dairy make my acne worse?'. You may stop having dairy for a week, only to realize that it is too much trouble and you can't really tell the difference. Let's figure this out together... Research tells us that inflammatory skin problems such as psoriasis, eczema and acne are more common and more severe in those who consume a diet rich in dairy products. These skin problems are even more common in those who indulge in smoking, consume packaged food and are exposed to polluted air. Cow's milk, which is the largest consumed animal milk in the world, contains casein protein and whey protein. Both these are known to raise the levels of growth hormones in calves as well as humans. Growth hormones such as insulin-like growth factor - 1 or IGF-1 is strongly linked with increased sebum formation in our skin. After infancy our body increasingly loses its ability to digest lactose, a sugar found in milk. We know that more than 50% of the world's population is lactose intolerant. Milk and milk products trigger all sorts of allergies as well as acne. Besides this, cows and buffaloes are regularly injected with artificial hormones to increase their milk supply. When you consume dairy that is mass produced with such practices, it throws your hormones off balance. Dairy may also promote growth of unhealthy gut bacteria and cause gut inflammation. This alters the way your food is digested and absorbed, which in turn leads to vitamin deficiencies and dull skin. How to prevent dairy related skin problems? Reduce dairy intake and switch to high-fiber diet instead. Increase your intake of omega-3 rich food and supplements to achieve a blemish-free skin. Do not substitute dairy with packaged almond milk or soy milk. Consider switching to green tea or freshly brewed black coffee instead. Both of these have plenty of antioxidant benefits which boost your immunity and make your skin glow. If you plan to give a dairy-free lifestyle a try, avoid all dairy products completely for atleast 3 weeks to see the improvement. Any thing less than 2 weeks cannot give you an idea of whether dairy truly aggravates your acne. If your acne persists consider discussing diagnostic tests and acne treatment options with your dermatologist. *Dairy products include milk, yogurt, curd, buttermilk, cheese, paneer, whey protein shakes, cakes and other similar desserts.

3 Lifestyle Habits that can Cause Acne Breakouts
Your acne is coded in your genes and governed by your hormones. While these two factors are not in your control, your lifestyle which affects your skin equally, IS. Here are the most important lifestyle changes that you can make to reduce your acne breakouts... 1. Clean your mobile phone Your mobile phone is pressed against your cheeks while you chat away with friends. The bacteria from your skin gets transferred on to the screen and stays there till it gets pressed on your skin again. Besides this your phone may have food residue from the time that you were eating and texting and dust from lying on dirty surfaces. If you have acne prone skin, make sure you sanitize the surface of your mobile phone at least once every day. 2. Wash your face less often If you have oily skin which is prone to breakouts, chances are that you are washing your face more than twice daily. That, coupled with acne treatment AHA toners, salicylic acid serums and retinol night creams can over dry your skin. This leads your skin to produce even more oil which in turn feeds acne causing bacteria. Wash your face maximum 3 times a day. Once in the morning when you wake up and shower, once before sleeping at night and an additional time after a workout or outdoor exposure. 3. Reduce your carb intake Refined carbs such as bread, pasta and fried food have a high glycemic index. They increase blood sugar and cause a spike in the hormone Insulin. High glycemic foods are very inflammatory for the body and also disturb your gut bacteria. This in turn disturbs your skin microbiome. Increase your intake of fresh vegetables and salads instead. These are loaded with antioxidants which help your skin in healing faster. If you have been struggling with acne breakouts for a while, getting a little help from your dermatologist could go a long way in getting rid of your acne.
3 Cosmetic Treatments that Celebrities Love
Hollywood stars look picture perfect on the Red Carpet. They work hard to achieve that uber-glam look by having a healthy diet and fitness routine. But every now and then, they do get a little help from their dermatologist to refresh their timeless look. Here are the top 3 treatments that celebrities indulge in... Botox Botox is used to achieve a tight and shiny forehead, lift-up eyebrows that droop with age and get rid of the creases that occur on the outer corner of your eyes when you smile. Almost every celebrity facing the camera gets Botox at some time in their life. When this treatment is done in the correct way, with low doses, the face looks ageless. But when the dose is too much or wrongly placed, then our celebrities end up looking more botched up than beautiful! Lip Fillers Celebrities have lip fillers for two reasons. The young ones may feel insecure about thin lips and want to plump up their pout. While the older ones lose lip volume as they age and also develop whistler's lines or smoker's lines. Lip fillers are like art, or sculpture. Your dermatologist is responsible for creating a beautiful shape that looks natural and complements your facial proportions. Badly done lips are called a 'trout pout' or 'duck-bill lips' and there's nothing appealing about them. Skin Tightening Everyone of us including celebrities use anti-aging creams. But that isn't the true reason behind their tight skin. Celebrities indulge in skin tightening treatment such as Thermage, Ultherapy and Fraxel once a year. These are usually done when they are on vacation, to hide the down time. These skin tightening treatments can reverse several years of skin aging with just a single treatment session. The result is a lifted, firm and rejuvenated skin. If you wish to glam up your look consider speaking to your dermatologist about these treatment options.
