Skin Care

Everybody desires to look beautiful. Beauty is the outcome of constant care. The more you nurture and pamper your skin, you will get better results in future. Though a balanced diet is very important for the skin, just 10 minutes of beauty care should also be a part of our daily habit.

To know your skin type, wash your face and do not apply any skin care product to it. After an hour press a tissue paper to your forehead, cheeks, chin, and nose.
  • If there's no oily residue on the tissue, you have normal skin. This skin type is neither oily nor dry. It is smooth, soft and supple.
  • If skin particles appear on the tissue or are evident on your skin, you have dry skin. This type of skin lacks moisture and is prone to fine lines.
  • If all areas reveal oily residue, you have oily skin. This type of skin is shiny and greasy and they often have enlarged pores and are prone to blackheads and spots.
  • If some areas of your skin leave an oily residue (i.e., your T-Zone - forehead, nose, chin) while others do not, you have combination skin. Combination skin is very common.

Caring for Normal Skin :
Wash your face every day, twice a day with a gentle cleanser or a low-alkaline soap. Use a light moisturizer. Protect your skin with sunscreen (minimum SPF 15). Avoid products that are very oily or dry.

Caring for Combination Skin :
Wash your face once or twice a day with a gentle cleanser. Use a light moisturizer on the dry parts of your face (those not in the more oily T-zone area, which includes your chin, nose and forehead). Use a gentle alcohol-free toner at least once or twice a week to remove excess oil. Use only non-comedogenic, oil-free cosmetics. Apply a non-comedogenic, oil-free sunscreen (minimum SPF 15) when you are exposed to the sun.

Caring for Dry Skin :
Clean your skin with "superfatted" soaps (contain fatty ingredients such as cocoa butter, lanolin) or creamy cleansers no more than one or two times a day. Avoid highly alkaline products as they may irritate your skin. Moisturize your skin every day. If your skin is extremely dry, you may want to apply a heavy cream at bedtime in addition to your daily moisturizer. Protect your skin from further dryness by using a sunscreen (minimum SPF 15). If your skin is also sensitive, avoid products with fragrances or dyes.

Caring for Oily Skin :
Wash your face gently with a mild, non-irritating cleanser, no more than once or twice a day. Don't overscrub. Too much scrubbing can be irritating. Avoid using creamy moisturizers and sunscreens and use "non-comedogenic" or "non-acnegenic" products instead. Non-comedogenic products will not clog pores. Use a gentle alcohol-free toner at least once or twice a week to remove excess oil. If you think your acne is beyond self-treatment, see a Dermatologist. A Dermatologist can help you diagnose your type of acne and provide you with a personalized treatment regimen that works for you. Sun-tanning may temporarily dry out oily skin and camouflage pimples, but acne usually flares up again as the skin begins to shed dry and dead cells caused by sun exposure. Apply a non-comedogenic, oil-free sunscreen (minimum SPF 15) when exposed to the sun.
