Frequently Asked Questions

 
 
Q1. How can I prevent an acne breakout?
 
  Keep your face clean
 
  1. Cleanse daily to remove impurities, dead skin cells, and excess oil from the skin surface. Use a mild facial cleanser.
2. Exfoliate your skin once a week. A gentle scrub helps to slough off dead skin cells and unclog pores.
3. Moisturize your skin. Most topical acne products contain ingredients that dry the skin. Moisturizer minimizes dryness and skin peeling.
4. Use makeup sparingly. During a breakout, avoid wearing foundation, powder or blush. Select oil-free cosmetics.
5. Avoid touching your face. Picking or popping your pimples with your hands can lead to infection and scarring.
6. Keep out of the sun. If not possible, apply sunblock of at least SPF 15 or higher before going out.
7. Eat more healthy foods such as fresh fruits and vegetables. Drink at least 8 cups of water daily.
8. De-stress. Our hectic lifestyle adds stress to our life. Stress can be a possible cause for acne breakout. Take time to relax and do some light exercises.
9. Get enough sleep. Aim for at least 7 to 8 hours of sleep. Maintain a sleep routine that includes going to bed at the same time each night.
 
 
Q2. How can I prevent or slow down skin ageing?
 
  Intrinsic ageing is a natural process that takes place over the years regardless of outside influences. After age 20, our body produces less collagen, which provides support for the skin. Extrinsic ageing occurs as a result of sun and environmental damage (smoking, pollution, etc). To prevent premature skin ageing, here are some tips.
 
  Avoid:
1. Cigarette smoke – primary or secondary smokers are affected alike.
2. Sun exposure – use a protective sunblock before going under the sun.
3. Sedentary lifestyle – it contributes to ageing. Exercise helps to tone your muscles and get blood flowing.
4. Alcohol use
5. Stress
6. Lack of sleep – dark eye circles and eye bags will start appearing as well as sagging skin.
 
 
Q3. What is a good skin care routine?
 
  1. Cleanse, tone, and moisturize your skin twice a day – once in the morning before you put on makeup and once at night before you go to bed.
2. Once a week, use an exfoliator or scrub to slough off dead skin cells and clogged-up pores.
 
 
Q4. What are the causes and treatments for skin pigmentation?
 
  Skin pigmentation may be caused by sun exposure, hormone levels or even a genetic predisposition. Many women experience skin pigmentation during pregnancy or while on birth control pills. Most skin pigmentation disorders occur because the body produces either too much or too little melanin, a pigment that creates hair, skin and eye color. Simply staying out of the sun, and wearing a good sunscreen, along with protective clothing, often goes a long way when treating skin pigmentation. Treatments may involve laser therapy and acid peels, both of which are designed to remove dead skin cells and the make the appearance of the skin discoloration less noticeable.
 
 
Q5. What is the best way to lose weight?
 
  Gradually. Most diets and quick weight-loss plans do not work over the long term. Staying fit and trim involve a change of eating habits and lifestyle. Make the cardinal rules of eating more vegetables and less fat and doing more physical activity your daily routine. Reduce stress in your work and life as we tend to eat unhealthily when under stress. Get enough rest and sleep so that you will not feel so tired or worn out and look to food for comfort. Downsize your dinner plates and avoid heavy meals late at night.
