Some natural tips to help your Acne Breakout under control

Acne troubles people all over the world. It is such a skin disorder that plagues people in their teens all the way to their late life. Not only is acne disgusting to look at, it is very painful and distressing and it leaves very long lasting scars even after successful treatment. There are thousands of skin care products in the market targeted at treating acne, but finding the right one for you is a very tedious task. Most of the times, even these products helping in promoting the situation and worsen it for you. So let’s take a look at some of the ways you can fight acne naturally.

Keep your face clean

Whether you have acne or not, it is very important to wash the face twice a day, every day, to remove all sorts of impurities, extra oil and the dead skin cells from the surface. That said, washing more than twice isn’t necessarily better. It can do more harm than good for you. Make sure to use a bowl of warm water along with a very mild facial cleanser. Using strong products can hurt the skin and cause even more damage.

Cut off the dairy

All of us have heard that greasy food as well as chocolate causes breakouts. Studies have revealed that, dairy is usually the cause of these breakouts. Try cutting the dairy out of your diet, and watch your skin starting to clear up instantly. Also there are other ways to increase your calcium intake such as orange juice, asparagus as well as broccoli, etc.

Don’t Pick

The normal life of a breakout is just a couple of days, or maybe even a week, but when you pick at an acne, the red marks left behind could stay there for the rest of your life.  A better substitute is a regular facial practice which can help clean the pores better.

Don’t go overboard with makeup

During an acne breakout, avoid wearing any blush, foundation or powder. If it is absolutely necessary, then make sure that you wash it off at the end of the day. Also make sure to use Non-comedogenic makeup, which is made to inhibit an acne breakout.

Keep an eye on your hair products

Avoid the use of oils, pomades or styling gels on your head. When and if they get to your face, they can block the pores leading to irritation on your skin. Make sure to use a mild shampoo and a conditioner on your skin. Also remember that oily hair can add oil to your skin, so wash your hair often and keep your hair pulled away from your skin.

Other than these tips, there are some foods which can help keep the acne breakout at bay. If you just arrange your diet and include these, you can significantly improve your skin’s condition. They are:

  • Water: the more in your diet the better.
  • Blueberries, raspberries and blackberries: great anti-oxidants.
  • Green Tea: Antioxidants as well as anti-inflammatory.
  • Whole Grains.
  • Olive Oil: rich in mono-saturated fats, good for skin.

So make sure to include these in your diet and have your skin restored to its former glory.

Cheap Whitening Creams and How They Harm Your Skin

Skin whitening products have been around for a very long time and are commonly advertised as a hassle-free way to get rid of blemishes and dark spots. They grew in popularity more recently when famous stars appear to have gotten lighter over a specific time period, and it’s not like these guys deny the usage. However you label them, skin whiteners, lightening creams or dark spot remover, they can still land you in a lot of skin related trouble if these products are applied improperly or without any dermatological consultation.

A lot of the creams sold in the market are a very dangerous combination of chemical compounds such as steroids, hydroquinone, which can cause permanent pigmentation, liver damage, mercury poisoning as well as skin cancer amongst many others. Although, a lot of fairness companies are thriving in the country, these hazardous side effects are shrouded in thick clouds of mystery and the awareness of these effects is very low.

Many experts have revealed that a lot of these products contain potent doses of these harmful chemicals. Over the past couple of years, many cheap skin whitening creams have been introduced into the market, which only focus on whitening the skin without paying any attention to the harmful side-effects. Let’s take a look at some of the most commonly experienced side effects of the cheap skin whitening creams.

Skin Thinning

Most of the cheap skin creams heavily feature such compounds which can cause skin to thin at the area of application. While it is a problem in its own, waxing the areas with thin skin could be extremely dangerous as the skin could also be removed along with the wax.

Dry Skin

The combination of ingredients in these cheap creams can leave your skin devastated beyond repair. A lot of cases have been reported where the cream users have started experiencing unnatural dry patches of skin. Also, with excessive skin dryness comes irritation which can have you scratching your skin like a crazed drug addict.

Acne

While most of these cheap whitening creams are capable of producing your desired skin whiteness, their side-effects including horrible acne which can disfigure your appearance more than it was before. Even the natural acne could leave troublesome marks on your skin, so just imagine what these chemically induced acne would do?

Cancer

Most of these cheap skin whitening creams commonly include such ingredients, which are usually regarded as poison. So imagine what your body will go through when this stuff (which you would never ingest by mouth) is absorbed into your body. Cancer, that’s right. Along with that you could also fall a victim to osteoporosis along with inhibited capabilities of healing of the wounds.

These are just some of the major issues you can face, so make sure that instead of these highly dangerous products, you make use of natural products heavily reliant on natural products. Although beauty is important, health takes precedence over everything. There is no use achieving one at the expense of the other.

Interview with qualified dermatologist and skin specialist Dr. Shumaila Khan

Q. How you (Dr. Shumaila Khan) did start your career regarding skin and laser clinic?

A. During my medical trainings, I have noticed that people get frustrated more by the problem and diseases which are visible and obvious to the naked eye. Especially diseases having effect on skin disturb them psycho- socially rather than any other hidden illness. This develops my interest in dermatology, so that I could help them in retaining their confidence in themselves.

Q. Were you always looking forward to have such a clinic of your own?

A. Yes when I started my post graduation in dermatology I always thought to serve the people from my end. I would love to serve and guide people of other cities also, not only because of competition but for giving the patients the quality of treatments they deserve.

Q. What enthused you?

A. Will of people to look good young and giving them the confidence in their personalities.

Q. Where do you see yourself and your skin and laser clinic in near future?

A. Sky is the limit.

Q. What is beauty for you?

A. Beauty for me is the confidence and belief in oneself.

Q. Would you like to tell  about the hi-tech instruments that you use at your clinic?

A. We use all FDA approved chemicals which include Botox, Fillers by Restylane, Mesotherapies (hair grow, Fatlipolysis), renowned and latest generation USA made Lasers and other high tech equipment best suited to our Asian skin type. Our Hydra dermabrasion recently won award in USA for its efficacy. Further we have Gold standard Revlite Q switched laser, which is one of the best laser besides we 5th Generation Nd-Yag best for Asian skin type. Fractional CO2 is the gold standard for skin rejuvenation and non-ablative skin resurfacing, tightening, and treating fine lines and wrinkle.

Q. Do you operate them yourself or you have a qualified staff for that?

A. I do my job myself. I only believe in quality produce by professional doctor’s hands which should be a dermatologist and certified as Aesthetic practitioner. All treatment is done in a very professional and hygienic environment.

Q. Any message for those out there, who might be interested to give a visit to your clinic.

A. Please going to some Aesthetic setup do check the qualification of the practitioner. No one can know your skin better than a qualified dermatologist and just make sure about the equipment and their credibility. Moreover for Aesthetic procedures a dermatologist must have some certification/diploma from any prestigious Medical Aesthetic board around the world.
