Doctor, do tell!
Need some skincare advice? Well, we’ve got not one but three skin experts spilling the beans on the perfect skincare routine, myths and their personal favourite products and tips.
The best advice for oily skin types:
Don’t overwash your face! Everyone feels because they have oily skin, they must wash their face at least four or five times a day. Guess what, your body was designed for balance. If your skin gets too dry, it starts producing extra oil, and then gets extra greasy. So, wash your face no more than twice or thrice a day.
Laser treatments and injections—your views:
I don’t believe in ‘making do.’ If science has given us great technology that helps us feel beautiful, then why not go for it? These options empower us to take action against the things that have always bothered us, be it acne, marks, scars, cellulite, stretch marks, sagging and more. Of course, it’s important to go to the right doctor who knows what they are doing and can guide you as to what will look elegant, and who will also have the strength to tell you when and
what to do and not to do.
An unfailing skincare tip:
Facial massages are amazing! I love cold cream cleanser facial massages. It’s lovely TLC for the skin and really helps stimulate and rejuvenate it naturally. Use a cold cream cleanser, massage your face in gentle circular and upward motions for 5-10 minutes, then wash off. Do this once a week and you
will thank me.
Products you swear by:
I swear by Shu Umera Cleansing Oil (I have dry skin so it makes my skin look moist and hydrated), Dr. Dennis Gross Ferulic and Retinol Serum (I need antioxidants and anti-ageing, and this really hits the spot), and I absolutely love ZOOTOX right now for anti-ageing
and skin smoothening.
One product you have always used:
Sunblock! I don’t leave home without my sunblock. I believe that’s the reason why I don’t suffer from excessive
pigmentation or freckles.
When should one start taking anti-ageing precautions?
I believe in starting at the age of 25. That’s when our collagen starts to get weaker, and its production also lessens. To start with anti-ageing, use a collagen boosting and skin renewal active such as lactic acid or lactobionic acid. Both these ingredients help your
skin regenerate while strengthening it.
