How to get rid of Wrinkles!

How to get rid of Wrinkles!

As soon as we think we are ageing, the appearance of wrinkles start bothering us.As we age, fine lines and wrinkles will start to appear. But there’s plenty of ways to get rid of wrinkles such as avoiding too much sun exposure, making a few lifestyle changes, and creating a proper skincare routine.

Here’s some natural ways you can do to help reduce and combat wrinkle issues:

 

1. Avoid too much sun exposure

Direct sun exposure will eventually hurt our skin and is one of the leading causes of wrinkles because of the sun’s drying rays. You should always keep yourself protected by applying sunscreen of at least SPF 30. Not only does it help reduce getting fine lines, it also decreases the chance of skin diseases such as sunburn, and can even prevent skin cancer.

 

2. Eat healthy

You are what you eat. What your body intakes will eventually reflect your physical appearance. Select foods that are rich in omega-4 fatty acids and vitamin E. Eat your way to fabulous skin by adding foods such as fish, sunflower seeds, fruits and vegetables to your meal plan.

 

3. Keep hydrated

“You must drink at least 8 glasses of water each day.” is a cliché. But it is a must.

Many of us doesn’t drink enough water our body needs. And many of us are not aware of the benefits of keeping ourselves hydrated even during cold, winter days.

Water is essential in giving our skin the right moisture and distributing essential nutrients on the skin cells. It also delays the appearance of fine lines as it increases our skin’s elasticity.

Keeping ourselves hydrated doesn’t only benefit the appearance of our skin but it also helps in keeping us healthy overall as it flushes out toxins in our body. Lastly, it is a great alternative for hunger as we sometimes think we are hungry only to realize we just need a glass of water to satisfy our thirst.

 

4. Get plenty of sleep

Lack of sleep accelerates the human aging process. It causes wrinkles to appear under the eyes, neck, and forehead. Getting enough hours of sleep is advisable if you want to maintain a healthy glowing skin. And while you’re at it, try sleeping on your back or on of your sides so there won’t be constant pressure on your face. You might also want to consider changing your pillow cover to fabric and silk. Deep sleep can eventually repair skin tissues so create a relaxing bedtime routine and selecting essential oils like lavender.

 

5. It’s Time to Move that Body

Exercising is something that most of us our too lazy to do. But moving our bodies actually makes us younger looking as it clears the skin of toxins through sweat. It also helps regulate the circulation of the blood. We just have to be careful in selecting the kind of exercise we should be doing as some says that specific exercises such as weightlifting causes more wrinkles to appear.

Using Jewellery to Create a Unique Layered Look in Your Outfit

Using Jewellery to Create a Unique Layered Look in Your Outfit

Layering your jewellery can help create a unique look that completes your outfit. Whether you’re attending a wedding, visiting friends or hitting up the club, a unique layered jewellery look will turn heads and grab attention. If you want to show off your fashion sense, then here are a few ways to layer your jewellery.

 

Personalise with unique jewellery pieces

 

If you want to add some personalization to your outfit, then consider using pieces that are more expressive. For instance, a pendant with your name or initials on it can be a great way to add personalization. Similarly, a ring from your favourite TV show can add a geeky touch to your outfit.

 

Silver creates a more neutral look

 

Gold jewellery can be difficult to use because it’s a much bolder colour. If you’re going for a neutral look then consider using silver instead to help add neutral tones to your outfit that doesn’t stand out too much.

 

Go for a simple and minimalist look

 

Don’t want to stand out? Consider using minimalistic jewellery pieces such as simple chains, studs and rings that have no pendants or designs on them.

 

Huge necklaces pair well with smaller ones

 

If you’re looking for a great way to stand out with your jewellery, then consider mixing large chains with smaller ones to make them both stand out. Gold chains also work wonders for creating a fashion statement, so take a look at this helpful infographic that shows several varieties of gold chain that you can mix.

Look Your Best This Party Season: Your Nine Step Plan

The holiday season is upon us, so it is natural to want to look our best. From an office party to family reunions, there will be a lot of people that we will be seeing, some not for a while. So it is only natural to want to look our best and wow them as much as we can. Being able to dance the night away in your little black dress and feel comfortable is what it is all about. So what and you do to prepare and make sure that you’re looking good? Here are a few tips and tricks to help you, as well as the areas that you should be focusing on.

One of the first things to look at is your skin. Winter can cause problems for your skin, as it can really dry it out. When you’re constantly exposing your skin to vary temperatures (the cold from outside and the warmth from indoors), it can sap some of the natural oils from your skin. So focusing on your skin first and foremost is a good way to go. Here are some of the things you can do to make sure skin is looking its best.

image

  • Prepare

Skin peels have been around for a long time, and they are still here. Why? Because they have been able to stand the test of time and show just how good they are, as well as how versatile. So it could be worth looking at getting having one done. It can peel away the dead skin to reveal glowing and fresh lovely skin. This can make your look instantly better, as well as reduce the number of spots that you get.

  • Reduce Blemishes

Speaking of which, blemishes can be on the rise when you aren’t taking good enough care of yourself and your skin. But it is important to not get confused as to what is a spot or a blackhead and what isn’t. If you start to squeeze a sebaceous filament, for example, it can lead to swelling, which is never a good look before a party. They aren’t spots, but can often get confused as blackheads. So sebaceous filaments vs blackheads: what is the difference? To make sure that you’re not trying to squeeze the wrong thing on your face, you need to know what they look like.

A sebaceous filament is typically light grey or a hue of tan in color. They feel smooth to the touch and are naturally on our faces. Blackheads, however, are the result of a clogged pore from things like dead skin cells, dirt or impurities. They are slightly raised and are darker in color. So before you squeeze, double check what you’re looking at; don’t end up with a lumpy face from putting pressure on the wrong thing!

  • Protect

Winter is a time when your skin needs a lot of protection. If you think that sunscreen, for example, is only needed when it is sunny, then it is time to think again. Use a sunscreen all year round to reduce sun damage to your skin. Many brands are upping their game when it comes to sunscreen too. There are brands out there that help to fight against free-radicals, and ones that can give your skin an antioxidant boost.

  • Hydrate

For your skin and your body, you need to stay hydrated. Drinking plenty of water, and avoiding too much caffeine is a great way to make sure that your body is taken care of. Drinking plenty of water can help to flush toxins out of your body, which will help to rejuvenate you, as well a reduce things like dark circles under your eyes. Our bodies are made up of a lot of water, so when they have enough, it helps them to work as they should.

  • Reduce Salt Intake

There is no getting away from some salt in our diets. But if you’re wanting to get into your little party dress and want to reduce the bloated feeling, then reducing your salt intake is a good idea. Don’t get me wrong, some salt on a steak can go a long way and transform the flavor. So just avoid a big bag of salty chips or fries the day before an event, for example. Stick to whole foods, rather than processed foods as a rule, and you’ll be able to control your salt intake much more easily as you will know what you’re adding, rather than what is hidden.

image

  • Exercise and Move More

We are getting into the full swing of party season. But there is no time like the present to move more and exercise more. Even if you’re not looking to lose weight, it can be a good way to help you to feel happier over winter, as well as firm and tone up your body. If you have a gym to get to, then great. If not, there are many apps that you can download to help you. A yoga routine could help to firm up your arms for your party dress, for instance, or a six-pack abs workout could help you to feel more comfortable in your chosen outfit. You don’t have to exercise for hours on end; even walking more regularly can make a difference.

  • Avoid Fizz

If you want to avoid being bloated, then as has been described, salt is a good thing to avoid. Another great thing to watch out for are fizzy drinks. If you regularly have soda pop, then looking to reduce your intake can reduce the bloat. Even when you’re out at your parties or events, stick to alternatives like red or white wine, rather than champagne or prosecco. The bubbles can fill you up, which is why many people drink them. But they can lead to you feeling bloated, and that probably isn’t how you want to feel in party season.

  • Get Plenty of Sleep

Sleep is important at any time of year. But it is even more important when you want to stay up later some nights and enjoy yourself. You’re not going to get very far if you’re exhausted and can hardly keep your eyes open. Instead of reaching for an unnatural solution like energy drinks, energy pills, or caffeine, simply make sure that you are getting enough sleep each night. Most adults know what sleep they need to get and what works best for them. But around seven or eight each night is a good guide.

  • Juice Cleanse

After all of the partying has been and gone, then you might want to consider something like a juice cleanse. It can restore your system and give it a bit of tender loving care that it might need. A juice cleanse will fill you with vitamins and minerals to help your body feel at it’s best, as well as give it a boost to help repair and restore. There are plenty of recipes online that you could aim to replicate, as well as buying some from stores. Just look for ones that are cold-pressed, rather than pasteurized. Then you know that no heat has been added and all of their goodness is still in there.

 

What have you got planned this party and festive season? Would love to hear about your plans and what you are planning. Do you have plenty of parties to go to in the coming weeks? Just remember to stay safe, follow these tips, and you’ll be in for a season of fun and frolics, and not sickness and sadness. Happy holidays!

Painless Laser Treatment at ISAAC Wellness!

ISSAC was established in 2010 by Dr. Geetika Mittal Gupta, in New Delhi as international Skin and Anti-Ageing Centre providing services in the field of Cosmetic Dermatology, Anti-ageing, body Shaping and Hair Transplant. Their clinics are located in

**Chattarpur, Gurgaon ( Levo Spalon)

** Vasant Kunj

** Shanti Niketan

** Friends Colony (Hotel Manor)

** Mayur Vihar (Hotel Crown Plaza)

** And DLF Emprio (Worship Salon).

ISAAC provides world class non-invasive services in revealing the beauty concealed within them through advanced aesthetic methods with no down time. They customise the treatment to meet the specific skin care demands of each client and not compromising on their safety and comfort.

I recently indulged in a laser hair removal sitting, and I have to admit that the technology that ISAAC has brought in is really commendable. This laser hair removal experience was totally painless and my skin felt so smooth just after one session only.

Hair Removal is often a painful, time-consuming daily routine for many people. While traditional methods such as waxing, tweezing and shaving are effective for removing the hair, they do not provide long-term solutions for hair removal – never mind all those bumps, nicks and ingrown hairs.

Laser hair removal is a quick and cost-effective solution for preventing unwanted hair growth. It can be performed virtually anywhere on the body – face, legs, arms, underarms, chest, bikini line and works just as well on any skin type, colour and thickness of hair.

Just before the procedure, your hair, undergoing treatment, will be trimmed to a few millimeters above the skin surface. A numbing gel is applied on the surface and the laser beams work on the hair follicles that are in the active growth zone. There is no pain involved in the procedure and doesn’t cause any redness or irritation to the skin. Another attractive advantage to this treatment is that you don’t have to wait for hair to grow, you can shave between your appointments.

At ISAAC, they first analyse your hair growth pattern and devise a plan to eliminate the hair from its root. There is absolutely no down time or side-effect for this procedure, and you can resume daily activities as soon as the treatment is over.

Dr. Geetika Mittal Gupta, DPD-Cardiff University, Board Certified by American Academy of Aesthetics, is a well experienced celebrity cosmetic dermatologist and one of the pioneers of Cosmetic Dermatology in Delhi-NCR. With over 10 years of experience in the field of Cosmetic Dermatology, she is the Medical Director of ISAAC ( International Skin and Anti-Ageing Centre), a centre which amalgamates the three tier approach to long term beauty with treatments for treatment, prevention and maintenance. The flagship centre is located at Chattarpur and other boutique centre are located in Gurgaon, Vasant Kunj, Shanti Niketan and Mayur Vihar. At ISAAC along with her team she routinely consults, counsels and performs Lasers, Botox, Fillers, Non-surgical face lift, Body Contouring and other aesthetic procedures.

Over the years she has actively promoted the specialty of Cosmetic Dermatology in the medical community. Dr. Geetika is known to be a prolific orator and has delivered many lectures and chaired numerous session at National Cosmetology and Aesthetic Dermatology Conferences and CME programs. She has been a Cosmetology Consultant to many premier events.

 

Dr. Geetika believes in the concept of low impact cosmetic procedures which cause minimal pain and discomfort to the person. These procedures now have globally proven efficacy in helping people to look their best and confident by non-invasive and non-surgical treatments. In the past she has been associated with Adiva and Nova hospitals as a consultant dermatologist.

ISAAC aims to deliver the best results in the most relaxed and professional environment possible, ensuring you have peace of mind every step of the way. That’s what makes them the best of what they do. For them, confidentiality is key and they always provide a flexible, personal service. Most importantly, their clients know their treatments are highly effective and that they always do what is right for customers. They recognise that every individual is unique and requires a personalised treatment plan. They strive to combine the best of the art of medicine with the latest advances in research and technology in formulating individualised treatment plans to achieve an exclusive, desired and aesthetically-pleasing result.

They set the bar in exemplary client care as all of their expert doctors are qualified in a specialist field and they train their aestheticians in-house with the latest procedures and techniques. Their customer services is unrivalled, and they’re proud to provide only the best in order to be the best. They are committed to ensuring that we receive the highest quality, in the most beautiful setting, at the lowest possible price.

Mission of ISAAC –

“Providing the most suitable treatments to our clients with our experienced doctors and increasing the life quality of them with professional procedures”

For me the entire session was not just interesting, but also very informative. There are a lot of treatments available with ISAAC which I would personally like to go in for.

4 Tips For Soft and Glowing Winter Skin

Anyone else starting to feel a bit dry in the cold weather? It’s no wonder with all the heating we expose our skin to inside and the rapidly dropping temperatures outside, and seriously dry winter skin needs more than just a good moisturizer. Here is a handful of soothing tips that will keep that chapping and redness at bay, so that you can face the cold air without worrying about the effect it has on your skin.

 

Image via: Pexels

It’s what skincare is all about, after all, and it makes it a lot easier to prevent early signs of aging as well.

#1 Protect your skin

Just like you’re told to cover up and protect your skin with thin layers when it’s sunny outside, your skin still needs this kind of protection during winter. It’s not as much to shelter you from the harmful effects of the sun as it is to keep the wind and frost at bay, though, so get yourself a thick scarf this winter as well as some gloves.

If you have ever lived somewhere severely cold, you know the feeling of dry and red hands very well. A decent moisturizer just doesn’t cut it, and you’ll risk red patches and even bleeding unless you cover your skin up before stepping outside. Not just because it’s unflattering to look at; dry winter skin can be downright painful.

#2 Choose lukewarm water

Try to go for lukewarm water when you wash your hands and shower. To go in either direction, meaning too cold or too warm, will dry your skin out little by little, and considering the amount of times we should wash our hands during winter to avoid getting sick, it’s important to keep this in mind. Have a look at https://water-rightgroup.com to understand how water affects your dry winter skin.

It’s understandably tempting to enjoy a hot shower when you’ve been freezing outside, so focus on washing your hands and face in lukewarm water instead. That way, you still get to steam up your bathroom when you need it the most.

#3 Moisturize no more than 20 minutes after showering

Those who struggle with dry skin on a daily basis and regardless of the seasons will probably say you should let your face air-dry after showering. Do it if you have time to wait before putting on makeup or rushing out the door – or just apply a moisturizer as soon as possible after showering.

The trick is not to wait more than 20 minutes; applying moisture to damp skin will help seal the dampness into your skin, and you can enjoy that extra protection when you step outside. If your skin is constantly dry, it’s a good idea to take a look at the kind of lotion and makeup you use on a daily basis.

Petroleum-based ingredients are common in moisturizers you buy in the regular grocery shops and may, in fact, make your skin even drier over time. It’s one of those tricks of the cosmetic industry to keep you coming back for more. Have a look at https://soundbodylife.com/best/makeup/for/aging-skin if you’re looking for makeup to quench your skin’s thirst and visit the pharmacy to buy a moisturizer that is actually made for dry skin. Look for fat-based lotions rather than water-based ones, and ask the pharmacist to help you out.

They know all about the kind of lotions that works well during winter – and if you have a problem with itchiness or redness, they’ll even be able to sort this out for you. Pharmacists are knowledgeable people, so take advantage of it rather than spending money on yet another supermarket moisturizer.

#4 Hydrate from the inside out

Many of us hardly drink enough water during the day, and we tend to forget about it, even more, when it’s winter. Sufficient amount of water is, of course, alpha omega when it comes to keeping your skin soft and glowing – as the largest organ we have and the only layer that protects us from the elements, your skin is the last priority when your body distributes water.

If you haven’t been drinking enough, it may even steal some water from your skin to keep your other organs functioning – health before beauty, and all that. It makes sense, though, and we’re grateful for it, but try to help your skin out a bit by eating food with a high water content as well. Soup is a good idea during winter, as well as tomatoes and cucumbers.

Use less powder as well, by the way, if you use makeup on a daily basis and try to not touch your face too much during the day. You should be able to enjoy a baby-smooth face throughout the cold seasons if you manage all of the above, so keep it up, and remember to moisturize before going to bed.

Ten Tips for a More Positive Body Image

Many women around the world struggle with their confidence. Whether you just ended a relationship and feel unwanted and unloved, or just want to feel better about yourself, you will definitely benefit from a confidence boost. Remember that how you see yourself is not the same how others see you. Make sure that you learn how to show your most positive side in every situation, and your body image will become much healthier. Read our tips below.

1. Update Your Wardrobe

Retail therapy is one of the best ways of getting rid of the blues. You must update your wardrobe and stop wearing the clothes that don’t bring out the best of your figure. Looking trendy is the first step towards being liked and respected. Find your personal style and look for inspiration from others.

2. Try a New Hair Color

It might be that you are not happy with your hair color or style. Does the haircut you have had for many years still suit your body size and personality? If not, it is time for a change. Get some ideas from hair stylists in your neighborhood for free, and decide which adventurous style you are going to try.

3. Play with Online Makeover Tools

If you are not quite brave and confident enough to take a leap, you can start playing with some of the online styling and makeover tools. They are fun, entertaining, and help you decide on hair color, style, makeup, and accessories.

4. Ask Your Friends for Advice

You might not be confident enough to try new things, and could need advice. Your friends will be more than happy to give you feedback on how you walk, hold yourself, wear different clothes, and style your hair. Ask for complete honesty, but be prepared to deal with it.

5. Get Fit

While most people start exercising to lose weight, getting fit has several additional benefits, too. Going for a walk, for example, reduces the level of anxiety hormones in your body, so you stop worrying about your looks and how others see you. Simple lifestyle changes, such as walking to the shops instead of driving and taking the stairs instead of the elevator can go a long way.

6. Learn How to Wear Heels

High heels make your legs look longer and leaner. If you rarely wear them, you should start practicing. Every dress looks much better with a stiletto, and looking taller improves your confidence, too.

7. Sign Up for a Makeup Course

If you have no idea what colors and styles suit you, there is something to be done about this. Why don’t you sign up for a makeup course and learn how to make blemishes disappear and how to highlight your best features. If you need makeup to feel good walking out of the door, let it be.

8. Tone Up and Lose Weight

Often the reason why people have a negative body image is the way they look in their tight clothes. If you are fed up with being unhappy and want to get rid of your bat flaps, you can create a personal training schedule for only a few minutes a day to get toned up. If you tend to comfort eat, find a diet shake company that offers nutritious desserts. Alternatively, eliminate sugar and fat to lose weight from the right areas.

9. Start Dating

Dating is one of the best ways of getting positive confirmation and building up your confidence. If you get to take a nice photo and register on one of the sites, as soon as the responses come in your confidence level starts increasing. Even if you are not serious about meeting anyone, you will benefit from guys expressing their interest in you.

10. Learn to Accept Compliments

One of the common traits of women with low confidence and negative body image is that they don’t take compliments seriously. They simply say thanks, but don’t think that the other person meant the positive comment they made. Learn to accept the fact that others notice your looks and try to believe that they genuinely like you.

Low confidence is an issue that is often associated with negative body image. If you want to feel better in your skin, ask for help and start trying new things. Losing weight and becoming healthier is only the first step; you must keep on working on your confidence and appearance until you are satisfied and get enough compliments each day to keep you going.

Common Problems with Skin and How to Solve Them

Image Credit: Pixabay

Your skin is the biggest organ of your whole body and it does a lot to keep you healthy and beautiful. Your skin is good at regulating your temperature and protecting itself from the sun. It covers you in order to keep all your guts in and yet it can stretch to be more accommodating (just think how big pregnant tummies can be!) But in spite of all these clear benefits, we are always complaining about the state of our skin and how it could be improved.

There are all sorts of small health issues that plague us from time to time that aren’t serious but just annoy you more than you need. Often there are simple treatments that can help us back to feeling normal again. Your skin is no different and there are lots of different solutions to each of those niggling issues, so you can have perfect skin after all.

Acne and spots

Spots are a natural, if very annoying, occurrence and everyone will have a spot or two every so often. They are caused by the overproduction of natural oils which fills the pores causing a small lump. This lump might turn into a whitehead, a blackhead, a tiny cyst or a red blemish but all of these are essentially just spots.Acne affects most people though it can have more severe impacts such as a rash like appearance and potential scarring. Acne is essentially the same as spots but is exacerbated by the acne bacteria which causes the skin to swell and become sore.

Try to avoid touching your face, especially when you have acne and spots so that you don’t spread any bacteria over your skin. Wash your face with mild soapy water and avoid scrubbing as that will just make you bleed and scab over. You could try face masks or other treatments to help clear acne and return your skin to its natural beauty.  

While squeezing spots is tempting, do your best to simply ignore them. A popped spot is likely to last longer than one left to its own devices because it is more likely to become infected or scab over. Similarly, using toothpaste or other products intended to dry spots out may cause further damage to your skin and leave pockmarks.

To avoid any potential scarring, be gentle and kind with your skin. Use oil-free products to make sure that your skin doesn’t become too oily leading to even more spots and as far as you can, let it be.

Birthmarks and uneven pigmentation

The ideal airbrushed skin is even in tone, freckle-free and birthmark-free too. Most people don’t really have skin like this though and even celebrities need a bit of cosmetic assistance when they walk the red carpet. To achieve flawless skin, try using concealers and foundations to form the ideal base for your makeup. Use slightly different colours to counteract the pigments in your skin to achieve the perfect glow. So for example, if you have broken capillaries causing redness, use a camouflage cream with a yellow base it counteract the red.

Makeup doesn’t have to be restricted to your face, but if you have a birthmark in an awkward place and you just want to have an even skin tone, you could try Dore Aesthetics. They have a non-surgical treatment that will even out any pigmentation issues in your skin to create a perfect, even tone. It may take a few treatments to reach complete perfection but if you are truly self-conscious about it, this may well give you the confidence boost you need to feel good about your skin.

Dry Skin

There are few things so itchy and irritable as patches of dry, flaky skin. It might be caused by overexposure to the sun or it is possibly due to eczema making you feel raw and uncomfortable. Either way, dry skin is no fun and needs to be treated quickly to avoid it getting worse.

The best thing you can do for dry skin is to moisturize regularly. Dry skin doesn’t produce as many natural oils as normal skin so topping up with a moisturizer will help to plump your skin up for a healthy natural glow. Contrary to popular opinion, you may also find that exfoliation can help. By removing dead skin using a flannel and a toner a couple of times a week, you may actually find that your skin is more likely to take on the moisture from your other products and look all the healthier for it.

Keeping Your Skin Healthy

Maintaining perfect skin is as much about luck as it is about understanding what your skin needs to stay healthy. However hard you try, you will always experience a spot or two every so often but if you know how to treat them, it shouldn’t be such a traumatic experience!

Being properly hydrated will ensure that your skin has the best chance of staying healthy. Like the rest of your body, the skin relies on water to get rid of toxins and stay in peak condition. Water will help you to ensure that your skin stays plump and beautiful and will reduce the instance of wrinkles.

If you spend lots of time outside in the sun, invest in a good sun hat to protect your face, neck and shoulders from overexposure. This will help to avoid getting sunburn as well as any unwanted freckling. You should also ensure that you apply sunscreen to any skin not covered by your clothes around 15 minutes before you go out. If you are out in the sun for a long period of time, use after sun body lotion to moisturize your skin and prevent it from drying out.  

Your skin is an amazing organ that does so much for you, you really shouldn’t complain about such small imperfections. But, if you are a perfectionist and you want flawless skin, these tips should help you to achieve that laudable goal! Remember that your general health will probably be reflected in how your skin looks so get plenty of sleep, drink lots of water and maintain a healthy diet and lifestyle for the best results.
