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.
How to Make Sure Your Neck Never Gives Away Your Age
Your skin care routine is flawless, and your face has never looked more vibrant and glowing. But then you look down to see it - your neck. Your neck, which is frequently affected by wrinkles, bands, and sagging, is one of the first and most visible parts of the body to show signs of ageing. Even using your regular skin care routine on the neck does not always appear to help with these issues. So, what are the best methods for combating and smoothing these age-related fine lines? Surprisingly, the face and the neck are linked; however, the ageing of the neck is slightly different. There are several reasons for this, one of which is that the skin on the neck is extremely thin. It is vulnerable to sun damage. But what distinguishes the neck is that it moves; the neck is a joint, just like your elbow or knee. And we develop creases over our joints over time. Normal skin ageing causes collagen and elastic tissue to break down, which accounts for neck wrinkles and sagging. This typically manifests itself around the mid-20s, and it is exacerbated in those who have had increased exposure to sunlight and pollutants such as cigarette smoke. These creases and bands on the neck have gotten worse in recent decades as a result of a condition known as "tech neck," which is caused by looking down at electronic devices for long periods of time. Neck bands become worse with neck movement, such as moving the neck up and down. They also get deeper when you hold your neck in a downward position while browsing on your phone or working on your laptop. Is there a way to prevent neck ageing? The best solution is to prevent sagging and wrinkles from forming in the first place. It is always easier to prevent damage than it is to repair or rejuvenate it. Sunscreen This product is your best line of defence against wrinkles and other signs of ageing. When choosing a sunscreen, look for one with an SPF of 30 or higher. Sun damage accelerates the appearance of ageing on all parts of the body. Do you already apply sunscreen to your face? Apply the same skin care routine that you use on your face to your neck. Antioxidants Another method of prevention is to use topical treatments and creams containing antioxidants. Ingredients such as vitamin C and E, can help reverse the effects of sunlight and pollution. They also stimulate collagen, reduce fine lines and improve skin elasticity. Retinols Retinols are also beneficial in combating the signs of ageing. If you have sensitive skin and are concerned about the strength, choose a cream that contains Retinyl Palmitate, a ProRetinol that is mild enough for most people. When it comes to stimulating collagen, retinoid creams are an excellent choice. Diet What you eat can also have an impact on how our skin looks. A diet high in antioxidants and low in sugar helps to prevent collagen damage. Weight fluctuation has a significant impact on your neck. If you have a history of yo-yo dieting, this will contribute to neck laxity. The most effective neck wrinkle treatments If you've already developed these unsightly wrinkles and sagging, it may be time to seek treatment. Here are some examples of dermatologist led options... HIFU Ultherapy, which uses ultrasound, penetrates deeper into the skin's layers than creams, stimulating collagen at the deeper layers and preventing sagging neck. Lasers Non-ablative fractionated resurfacing lasers, such as Clear and Brilliant or Fraxel, can help improve your skin's texture. MNRF All radiofrequency microneedling devices stimulate collagen and elastic tissue, which aids in the treatment of horizontal neck bands. If you choose this procedure, keep in mind that it will necessitate multiple treatments. Injectables Another option for filling neck bands and horizontal lines is injectables. Dermal fillers do not treat muscle, but they can help to smooth out fine lines and plump up the skin on the neck, giving it a more youthful appearance. Botox is preferable for bands and neck cords because it softens their appearance by relaxing the muscle.
How to Prevent and Get Rid of Dandruff
Keeping your scalp healthy is important for the health of your hair. If your scalp is healthy your hair will be naturally strong, shiny and good-looking. You need to strike a good balance between shampooing and moisturizing your scalp to keep it healthy and dandruff free. Let's talk about how to keep away from dandruff, and even severe problems such as scalp dermatitis. What is Dandruff? Your scalp sheds dead cells just as much as your skin. But when it becomes too dry or inflamed, the upper skin cells start shedding even more. These dried skin cells start to flake and break into pieces. When you scratch your head, these flakes fall out in the process, which is called dandruff. This may simply mean that you need to moisturize your scalp or shampoo your hair. But sometimes, it's not just a bad hair care routine, but a more complicated condition called scalp dermatitis. Scalp dermatitis can occur with yeast over growth, over use of products and certain hormonal conditions. It can be treated with prescribed medication. You will need to consult a hair specialist. Causes of Dandruff * Oily scalp * Dry scalp * Yeast overgrowth * Unclean scalp * Allergy to hair products * Fungal Infection * Other skin conditions How to Get Rid of Dandruff? Dandruff can be caused by numerous conditions and unhealthy routines. You can control it at home by frequently washing your scalp with anti-dandruff shampoo. Make sure you wash daily for at least 2 weeks to see positive results. Your Dandruff Shampoo should include these ingredients: Zinc pyrithione Salicylic acid selenium sulfide Ketoconazole Coal tar How to Prevent Dandruff Wash hair frequently Wash your hair alternate days or at least every 2 days. Washing too often may dry out your scalp, and not washing frequently will make it oily. Oily skin traps dead skin and increases the chance of dandruff. Use Conditioner Use conditioner after every shampoo wash, to keep the hair moisturized. The shampoo cleans all the dust and oil and makes your scalp dry. So, use a conditioner to keep it stable and healthy. Sun Protection Sun can make your hair dry. So, try to keep it covered when you are going out on a sunny day. Or you can wash your hair with normal water after coming home. Diet for Healthy Hair Eat healthy home cooked food with lots of greens, proteins, nuts and seeds. This will ensure a healthy body, healthy scalp and prevent dandruff as well as hair loss. If your dandruff is persistant and silvery, you have red inflammed patches in your scalp or have painful boils please consult your dermatologist as you could be suffering from scalp psoriasis or seborrheic dermatitis.
Easy Lifestyle Changes for Amazing Skin
Your lifestyle choices can lead to hormonal imbalances. Lack of exercise and eating packaged food can cause PCOD or Poly Cystic Ovarian Syndrome. As a result, you may experience acne and hairloss. Here are some easy lifestyle changes to restore healthy hormone levels. Get Sufficient Sleep Lack of sleep can lead to unhealthy habits. Enough sleep helps to balance ghrelin and leptin – hormones associated with appetite. Ghrelin stimulates your appetite and encourages you to eat more while leptin regulates it. Insufficient sleep increases ghrelin and lowers leptin in your bloodstream. As a result, you tend to eat more than you need. Make sure that you get adequate sleep to avoid gaining weight. Sleep also helps to rejuvenate your skin and body. Don't Stay in One Place When you remain stagnant for a long time, your body experiences hormonal imbalances. That’s why you feel pain in certain organs. To restore balance, make sure that you commit at least 30 minutes every day to exercise. It doesn’t have to be something rigorous. A walk around the neighborhood can do the trick. The goal is to be active and get your blood pumping. The breathing also helps to balance your hormones and breaking a sweat can clear your pores. Remain Calm When you try to do so many things at the same time, it becomes stressful. You can’t stop thinking about all the possibilities – mostly bad ones. Unfortunately, stress causes a lot of hormonal imbalance and hair loss comes with it. You should also avoid a lot of coffee because caffeine can also increase your stress levels. Take a deep breath and relax. Do your things in an orderly manner, and you won’t have to worry about the results. Watch What you Eat There is a direct correlation between your diet and hormones. Insulin and glucagon are hormones produced by the pancreas. Your body produces insulin after you eat. It helps to convert the food into energy. On the other hand, your body produces glucagon when it has gone without food for a while. This hormone helps to convert the stored glycogen into energy. Eating sugary foods causes an insulin imbalance. Your body won’t produce enough insulin to convert the food into energy. That’s why you feel more exhausted after eating unhealthy foods. This also triggers insulin resistance and pigmentation. You should eat foods rich in omega-3 and probiotics. Lean proteins are also good for hormonal balance. Your habits can affect the hormonal balance in your body. Practice the above healthy habits to keep your energy levels and moods up. And do consult your dermatologist if your problems persist.
Easy Ways to Hydrate Your Skin
Let's understand right from the beginning that moisturising helps to slow down the ageing process. Here's another way to look at it. Drinking water is an essential part of everyone's day, so if you want to keep your skin healthy, you need to make sure you're hydrating it too. Here are five practical ways to help your skin stay moisturised. Moisturizer You should moisturise every day. As a Dermatologist, I stress this and for solid reasons. Moisturizers have the ability to hold water in your skin, keeping it smooth and supple. You can't assume that, because you're a man or a woman, your skin is sensitive, oily, you don't need to apply moisturizer. Even if you don't notice the need for it, you should moisturise your skin on a daily basis. The American Academy of Dermatology (AAD) recommends the use of moisturiser frequently, every single day. Moisturizing everyday can help calm down oily skin and reduce acne breakouts and reduce wrinkles. Tub soak vs Shower Avoid hot baths as they may cause unwanted side effects. you may  choose to soak in the hot tub because it helps relieve tension and relax the body, but bear in mind that hot water removes the natural skin oils that protect your skin. Your skin dries out skin and feels itchy and irritated, especially if you have a dry or sensitive skin type. Hot tub soaks can aggravate eczema, psoriasis and many other skin conditions. Rather than immersing yourself in hot water, prefer to settle for a warm shower. Gentle Skincare Products If you have sensitive skin, opt for gentler products. Exfoliating your skin daily or using an antibacterial soap is unnecessary. Such products definitely strip your skin dry.  To ensure that you are buying products that are gentle, moisturising and fragrance-free, learn to read ingredient labels correctly. Avoid ingredients such as sulfates, silicones and parabens. Try to pick certified organic or clean beauty products where possible. Sunscreen Use sunscreen at all times. When you expose your skin to the harmful UV rays of the sun, protect it from the damage that they cause. Make sure to apply sunscreen each and every day, year-round, even during the winter months. Using a broad-spectrum sunscreen, SPF 30 (or higher), which is water-resistant is strongly recommended. Also do reapply sunscreen every 3-4 hours to areas of the skin that are directly exposed to UV rays.  Sunscreen is also one of the best ways to prevent pigmentation and premature aging. Drink Water Drink a lot of water. This sounds like a cliche, but drinking plenty of water will help to both moisturise your skin and replenish all of your body's fluids. Exercise, staying healthy, and drinking plenty of water are all effective methods for preventing the early signs of ageing.
Why Do I Have Acne?
Acne is a skin condition that affects the oil glands and hair follicles. The pores in your skin are linked to glands that produce an oily substance called sebum. The glands and your pores are linked by a canal called the follicle, which contains thin hair that grows to the skin's surface. When sebum and dead skin cells combine, they form a plug in the follicle. The bacteria in the plug causes inflammation, which results in red inflamed acne and furthermore, acne scars What is the underlying cause of acne? Despite the fact that the exact cause of acne has yet to be determined. However, there are some things that can cause or worsen acne, such as: 1. Hormonal changes such as puberty, menstruation, and pregnancy can all cause acne. 2. Squeezing or picking at existing pimples 3. Excessive cleaning or scrubbing of the skin 4. Weather with high humidity 5. When you use excessive amounts of cosmetics or experiment with them, as well as harmful hair products and oil-based products such as sunscreen. 6. Corticosteroids and anabolic steroids for body building. 7. Acne on the forehead is linked to dandruff in the hair. What are the signs and symptoms of acne? Everyone is unique, and so are their symptoms. As a result, different symptoms indicate different types of acne. As an example: 1. If you have blackheads, they are open, clogged pores on the surface of your skin. 2. If you have whiteheads, they are plugged pores close to the skin's surface. 3. If you have papules, these are small, tender red/pink bumps on your skin. 4. Pustules are papules with pus on top if you have them. 5. If you have nodules, which are large, painful lumps deep beneath the skin's surface, 6. If you have cysts, they can be painful, pus-filled lumps located beneath the skin's surface. Acne is one of the most common skin conditions that can affect anyone, regardless of age. It is unquestionably a difficult condition to prevent and even more difficult to treat. Certain natural remedies, such as stress control and weight loss help tremendously. If you are suffering from acne do consider discussing it with your dermatologist. Medical science has advanced a lot in treating even the most severe forms of acne such as cystic acne and hormonal acne. You no longer need to suffer alone.
