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.
