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.

How Smoking Ruins Your Skin and Hair
If there only one lifestyle change that you will make to look younger, quit smoking. Smoking affects your skin and hair in many negative ways. Read on to find out how... How Smoking Damages your Skin and Hair When you smoke, the nicotine in the tobacco reduces the amount of blood that is flowing to your skin. The toxins also affect collagen and elastin production, which in turn affect the elasticity of your skin. This makes the skin sag and droop, giving you an aged appearance. Tobacco smoke contains 4000 other chemicals besides nicotine. And most of them trigger the break down of collagen and elastin. These are the fibers that give your skin its supple and glowing appearance. Smoking or even being around a friend or partner who smokes destroys the building blocks of your skin. Apart from your facial skin your lips also become darker in colour. This lip hyperpigmentation is also called as 'smoker's lips'. It can begin immediately after you start smoking cigarettes or other tobacco products. Smoking damages DNA, which can also affects your hair follicles. It damages the hair at the root and negatively affects the hair growth cycle. This causes early greying and hair loss. What You can do to Reverse the Damage Your skin recovers its elasticity when you stop smoking. It will also be smoother, making it more pleasant to look at and touch. Your skin complexion will become visibly brighter in the first few weeks after you stop smoking. After six months, your skin will regain its original vitality. Start an antioxidant supplement that contains N-acetyl cysteine, glycine, glutamine, vitamin C, vitamin E, resveratrol and astaxanthin. Antioxidants are free radical scavangers that reduce the oxidative stress caused by smoking. Start using retinol in your nightly skin care routine. Retinol is a powerful antioxidant and it boosts collagen repair. It is one of the holy grail ingredient when it comes to skin tightening and anti aging treatment. Explore cyclical vitamin therapy to control hair loss and boost hair re-growth. Cyclical vitamin therapy contains as many as 100 ingredients which are needed for healthy hair and treatment of hairloss. Pick an under eye cream containing chrysin, vitamin K and kojic acid to reverse dark circles caused by smoking. Try a DIY lip balm containing ghee and beets to lighten your lips and restore their pink colour.

Is Botox Vegan Friendly and Cruelty-free?
Botox is the single largest performed cosmetic procedure in the world today. And as of January 2021, the total number of vegans in the world is approximately 79 million. Lets find out whether veganism and Botox go together... What is veganism? A vegan is a person who does not eat or use any animal products. Apart from vegans there are many others who are searching for cruelty-free products and cosmetic treatments that don’t include animal ingredients, or are involved in animal testing. What is Botox? Botox is a drug made from a toxin produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. It is used by a dermatologist for anti wrinkle treatment. But it has several other uses in medical science. Severe underarm sweating (hyperhidrosis) Cervical dystonia, a neurological disorder that causes severe neck and shoulder muscle spasms Blinking that you can’t control (blepharospasm) Eyes that point in different directions (strabismus) Chronic migraine Overactive bladder Is Botox vegan? The actual Botox injection is vegan friendly. It goes not contain any ingredients of animal origin. But it does have albumin from human plasma as a preservative. Also, like any other pharmaceutical grade medication, it does involve animal testing before it can be certified as safe for human use. So, no.. Botox is not vegan. The final word If you are a vegan, whether you will take Botox or not is a personal choice you will have to make. Maybe if it was for anti-aging treatment, your dermatologist can do away with it and switch to other skin tightening treatments such as Ultherapy and RF skin tightening. But, if it was for other conditions such as an overactive bladder or cervical dystonia then the decision would be more difficult.
