DERMATOLOGIST SPEAKS

Normal skin is firm with good muscle tone, appropriate skin hydration, elasticity and skin barrier functions. It is soft, smooth and has an even skin tone along with a healthy glow. This type of skin is rather unfortunately rare. But this does not mean you can ignore basic skincare regime. Correct skincare is as crucial as any other skin type. Therefore, proper hygiene, pampering and protecting your skin is equally important to maintain this skin type. 

Dr. T. K. Gupta (MD, Skin)


IMPORTANT POINTS TO REMEMBER 

  1. Skin type does not remain static; it can alter with time depending upon a number of external & internal factors.
  2. Factors that can harm/ disrupt the normal balance of your skin are: extreme weather changes, heat, dust, pollution, excessive sun exposure, stress, lack of fresh air, dehydration, artificial heating or cooling devices, poor hygiene, lack of sound sleep, hormonal imbalance, insufficient water intake and diet lacking essential vitamins. Another factor which is extremely important but is usually overlooked is; choosing skincare products. Therefore always- 
    • Use skincare products that are formulated specifically for your skin type.
    • Look for skin pH friendly skincare products.
    • Try to use only those skincare products that do not contain toxic/ harmful ingredients in them & are safe for application on human skin.
  3. Avoid changing your skincare regime frequently.(Skin takes about 3-4 weeks to show any results/ signs of improvement.)
  4. Always consult a dermatologist; without any delay; if you are suffering from any skin problem. (Most of the skin issues can be prevented from spreading/ increasing if timely treatment is taken.)

DIET & SUPPLEMENTS
