Our expert of choice, Dr Kiran Lohia, Celebrity Dermatologist, Lumiere Dermatology, is never wrong, and her own enviable skin is the best example.

India’s famous – and favourite! – dermatologists demystify common skin hassles for you.

Read on!

Pigmentation

Pigmentation is a condition that makes the skin darker/lighter than usual. It’s primarily caused due to increased melanin levels, but other reasons include:

  • Injuries
  • Inflammation (after a treatment, like laser)
  • Sun damage
  • Hormonal changes (which cause melasma)

Birthmarks/freckles are also a kind of pigmentation, but these are genetic.

Pigmentation is a problem best handled under professional supervision. Pain-free laser treatments are available for a variety of pigmentation issues, including the more difficult ones, like melasma, cutaneous macular amyloidosis on the back/arms, and even LPP (Lichen Planus Pigmentosus).

The appearance is often worsened by accompanying issues like fine lines, mild sagging, and very obviously open pores, which can be taken care of by the right laser therapy. It’s absolutely necessary to have a detailed and honest discussion with an experienced dermatologist about the history and spread of your pigmentation problem, for them to be able to advise a treatment plan best suited to your concerns. Only you stand to benefit from the 20-30 per cent decrease in pigmentation, from the first session itself!

Stretch marks

Stretch marks are an array of parallel lines, which appear on the skin during/after pregnancy, or a sudden change in body weight. These may appear as purple, or grey-to-pink lines. When your skin doesn’t have enough elasticity to stretch, it literally breaks, which causes such stretch marks to form.

They can appear anywhere, but they’re commonly visible on the:

  • Stomach
  • Buttocks
  • Thighs
  • Upper arms

Treatment entails making newer, more elastic skin, resurface. Again, reliable interventions in the form of laser therapy are available. To treat this, you need to make newer skin resurface to create more elastic skin. Fractionated resurfacing of the skin can be facilitated with laser, using plasma technology, a process that ultimately forces the skin to renew itself.

Newer approaches use the science of laser resurfacing to make old, damaged skin cells shed themselves, and to stimulate fresh collagen synthesis. This helps smoothen out stretch marks and improve their outward appearance, which is what makes people conscious about stretch marks in the first place.

Ageing

Droopy skin, saggy jaws, and a double chin not only make you look old, but lower your confidence too. An unhealthy lifestyle makes signs of ageing visible in your early-to-late 20s itself. Even the fine lines on your forehead can make you look 10 years older than your actual age!

Ageing is caused primarily because of:

  • Reduced collagen production
  • Excessive sun exposure

Collagen provides elasticity to the skin by retaining its natural moisture, the absence of which causes the skin to droop. Effective (and luxurious!) anti-ageing treatments are available, whereby your skin undergoes full renewal by sequential and simultaneous use of multiple skin technologies. Within 3 months, you have fresh, new skin, and the positive effects of the treatment will last up to a full year!

Additionally, Botox and US FDA Hyaluronic Acid fillers are available to reduce wrinkles, folds, creases, and fine lines on your skin, making it look younger and ‘uplifted’.

Mental Wellbeing

Today, what we all need most is peace of mind, and mind you, it doesn’t come easy. To find tranquility, you must let go, and to learn to do that, you must embark on a journey for your own sake. We know that being healthy means so much more than just a healthy body. It means a healthy mind – a state of complete mental wellbeing. We welcome personal experiences, expert views, meditation techniques, and other holistic ways of achieving mindfulness.

Nutrition

The human body is perfectly designed by nature, and how we fuel it is important. In order to climb the Everest, backpack around the globe, get that promotion, break the world record for baking the largest apple pie, or anything else that you want to do in life – it is important that you and your body are on the same page. And surprisingly enough, of all aspects of health, nutrition is the most ignored or misinterpreted. No more fad diets, ‘magical detoxes’, or weight-loss powders. Nutrition is simple science...and lots of taste. Submissions within this category will include articles on health through foods, recipes, juices and smoothies, and natural and sustainable ways to achieve weight goals.

Fitness

We walk, run, swim, cycle, dance, workout – all to stay fit. Even though the end goals may be different for everyone, fitness, at the end of the day, means something that promises a healthy, fulfilling life. It means training your body to do better each day in whatever ways you want it to. Submit within this category if your article is to do with any form of physical fitness like yoga, running, muscle building, a success story, or any aspect of physical health.

Organic Beauty

Most of what you put on your skin is absorbed right into the bloodstream (Need proof? Think nicotine patches, or birth control patches). This is why a lot of the world is going back to their roots. Think organic. Think of all gifts of nature you could use, that could enrich your body, without all the chemicals and preservatives. Organic beauty is taking a stand for yourself – it is a lifestyle. If you have written about hair, skin, natural remedies, ayurveda, or alternate therapies, this is where you need to be.

Love

Love for a friend, family member, or lover – all such profound, complex emotions and connections. Oh love, love, love! It has the power to heal the soul, make a saint out of a criminal, and basically, just bring a smile to your face even on the most dismal of days. There are no rules, no laws, no policies, and absolutely no one manual when it comes to relationships. But oh, wouldn’t we all like a little help once in a while? Our broad categories include relationships, friendship, dating, sex, parenting, and other aspects of love.
