How to do skin care during festival

Diwali is here again. We brighten up our faces with a beautiful glow. Everyone wants to look their best, but unfortunately, they often end up looking at their worst due to the consumption of unhealthy rich food, stress due to hectic shopping, the pollution in the air due to incessant firecrackers and lack of time for skincare.

happy attitude to life and a stress-free mind is the most essential ingredient to get a special glow on skin, so you need to start making an effort to achieve that before you start the beauty routine. Having taken this initial step, let us move a step further. That is the skincare which is very important keeping in mind the added pollution and the stress.  

Precautions during Diwali :

Limit your sweet intake:  overdose on sugary and fried goodies, in a few days it'll start showing on your face -- breakouts, dull skin, weight gain, not to mention allergies thanks to the artificial colors and flavors that go into mass-produced sweets. Make sure to include plenty of fresh fruit and raw vegetables in your diet.

Don’t stop working out: Do not compromise on your health. Continue your exercise regime as usual and you'll be thankful at the end of the season that you didn't pile on the pounds.

Hydrate yourself: Use a water-based moisturizer frequently and drink plenty of water to hydrate your skin. Lukewarm water to which honey and lemon can be added takes away the puffiness of face caused by fluid retention at night.

Protect your skin from firecrackers: Stay at least six to seven feet away from lit fireworks. If you have sensitive skin, it's a good idea to tie a cotton scarf over your face while lighting or watching fireworks. Wash your face thoroughly with mild soap and water immediately afterward and follow up with a moisturizer. In case of burns, wash the area immediately with cool running water for 10 minutes or longer, till the burning sensation eases. Apply an antibiotic cream on mild burns and consult a doctor immediately.

Care from the skin : Excessive exposure to pollution can cause premature aging and wrinkles on the skin. Excessive humidity can cause acne eruption, fungal infections and a host of other skin diseases. Skin stays excessively sticky and greasy and should be washed every few hours with a gel face wash.

Basics of skincare:

Cleansing: Toxins from the body and pollutants from the environment give the skin a dull look. Instead of soap use a face wash. Gel or foam for normal to oily skin and crème cleansers for those with dry skin.

Makeup remover: For those using makeup, use extra makeup remover wipes prior to cleansing the face. Available with leading cosmetic brands, cold milk, as well as baby oil, is a good makeup remover especially for dry skins.

Moisturizing: Different skin types have different requirements. Choose from creams for dry skin, lotions for normal skin and gels for oily skin. No matter the skin type, always moisturize prior to sleeping.

Scrubbing: Exfoliation removes dead skin cells; but skin cells shed every 28 days so use scrub only once a week or once a month (depending on skin type). Use bran soaked in water, moong dal scrub or ones available in the market. Do not over scrub as it removes all moisture from the skin and may also harm the skin.

Masks: Fruits like papaya, banana have the capacity to dissolve toxins when applied, oily skin can use Multani mitti or clay pack.

Avoid cheaper formulas that tend to be less refined. And remember, contrary to popular belief, natural skincare is not always suitable for sensitive skin. You only have to be allergic to pollen to understand easily why natural can, in some cases, not be the way forward.'

Is Laser Hair Removal safe during Pregnancy?

In Pregnancy, belly is getting bigger and you can barely see your legs, also alone shave is very difficult.

Because of the changes in hormones during pregnancy, you may find more hair growth around the belly, nipples, or other unwanted places. If you don’t tweeze or shave, the excess hair will usually fall off after pregnancy.

Is It Safe To Undergo Laser Hair Removal While Pregnant?

Generally, laser hair removal is not conducted on women while pregnant, there are several reasons to avoid laser hair removal during pregnancy.

In the absence of research and due to the non-availability of information on the negative consequences of a pregnant woman and her growing baby, most doctors, and clinicians suggest postponing laser hair removal procedures until after the delivery. It is not good to be on the wrong side of caution, especially during pregnancy.  

Laser hair removal treatment uses non-ionizing radiation. This technique produces intense heat in order to remove the unwanted hair from its roots. It does not cause any cell mutation. The laser light beams penetrate into your skin for only a few millimeters. However, the non-iodizing radiation can be absorbed by the surrounding tissue in the area. Doctors are not sure about how this may affect your unborn baby.
  • For some pregnant women, laser hair treatment can cause mild pain, so medical professionals use numbing creams. This cream is not recommended during pregnancy as your body can absorb anything applied to the skin. 
  • Your skin gets very sensitive while you are pregnant. The laser hair removal treatment may cause pain, redness or irritation, leading to further skin problems.
  • The length and number of treatment sessions depend on your hair growth cycle. But the change in hormonal levels during pregnancy can sometimes shorten the hair growth cycle or stimulate dormant hair follicles. Therefore some women can experience quick hair re-growth while they are pregnant.
  • First of all the body hormonal changes can cause changes to melanin production, causing the treatments to be more painful and less effective.
  • The second reason is that the laser zapping can cause cramps, especially when done on lower abdominal and thighs.

The treatment is uncomfortable when performed on sensitive breasts and bikini area in the later stages of pregnancy. Also, the skin is usually very sensitive during pregnancy, and you are likely to experience irritation, redness, or pain in the skin.

Should You Postpone Laser Hair Removal Sessions Till Completion Of Pregnancy?

 If you are already in the middle of laser hair treatment when you conceive, it is good to postpone the procedure until after delivery. You could always opt for alternative hair removal methods. Even if you keep the procedure on hold, it will not hinder the progress achieved in the initial sessions.

Your doctor can decide whether to continue or postpone the treatment during pregnancy. You should also talk to him about the safety of alternative hair removal methods such as electrolysis, waxing, and shaving.

For more knowledge and skincare during pregnancy, you may contact Dr. Manju Keshari at KEMPS Skin Clinic. , Vaishali, Sec-4 Ghaziabad.

Birthmark Types, Causes, and treatment

Birthmark: Any mark, spot, or bump that is present in or around the time of birth on the skin of an infant is a birthmark. Mothers are fond of giving these rather romantic names such as angel's kisses, stork bites, or beauty marks. Most of these lesions are not particularly aesthetically desirable.

Types of Birthmarks:  Birthmarks can be categorized according to their composition.
  • Pigmented birthmarks: Marks as a result of excessive accumulations of melanin are called pigmented birthmarks since the great majority of them are brown to black. Other birthmarks appear lighter than the rest of the skin due to a relative lack of melanin.
  • Vascular birthmarks: Vascular birthmarks are composed of blood vessels and are called vascular birthmarks. They are generally red, blue, or purple. Other birthmarks are composed of lymphatic tissue (cystic hygroma), breast tissue, and epidermal tissue, which are often yellow to flesh-colored. 

Causes of birthmarks:  Most Birthmarks are probably due to defective migration of cells during fetal development. Once these cells start to multiply, they produce tissue with the characteristics of their cell type though they are not where those cells typically are located.

Is it possible to remove or fade Birthmarks?

It is now possible to treat many kinds of both pigmented and vascular birthmarks. The approach depends on the type of tissue involved and the risks versus the benefits of treatment. The pediatrician is an excellent source of information as to potential treatment options.

Treatment for Birthmarks:

The treatment of birthmarks depends on the nature of the tissue involved. Medical treatment can hasten the resolution of certain kinds of vascular birthmarks. Generally, measures that destroy the involved cells of the birthmark are required for both pigmented or vascular birthmarks. Either scalpel surgery, lasers, and rarely radiation can be helpful.

Many capillary birthmarks such as salmon patches and strawberry hemangiomas are temporary and require no treatment. For permanent lesions, concealing cosmetics might be helpful. Cortisone (oral or injected) can reduce the size of a hemangioma that is growing rapidly and obstructing vision or vital structures. Other oral medicines have been used experimentally with some success in these cases, as well.

Port-wine stains on the face can be treated at a young age with a yellow-pulsed dye laser for best results. Treatment of the birthmarks might help prevent psychosocial problems that can result in individuals who have port-wine stains.

Permanent red birthmarks might be treated with methods including:
  • Cryotherapy (freezing)
  • Laser surgery
  • Surgical removal

In some cases, birthmarks are not treated until a child reaches school age. However, birthmarks are treated earlier if they result in unwanted symptoms or if they compromise vital functions such as vision or breathing. KEMPS Skin Clinic, Vaishali Sec-4 provide treatment for birthmark. You may book a prior appointment and get the best treatment.

How to get glowing skin

Facials have always been synonymous with relaxation and healthy skin. However, the unending facial menu’s can be too much jargon and there is a huge gap between the qualities of the ingredients being used in the industry. All of this leads to information asymmetry between the customer and the skin clinic, mostly to the advantage of the skin clinic.

Let’s consider what we expect from a facial: The perfect facial should be relaxing, hydrating, stimulating, moisturizing and rejuvenating. Most beauty clinics would have 5 different facials to achieve what a single facial session should achieve.

However, there is some light at the end of this dark tunnel, in the form of Hydra-Facials. Also referred to Aqua Peeling or Hydro-Dermabrasion.

What are Hydra Facials?

 Hydra Facial itself as the medical-grade facial rejuvenation that cleanses, detoxifies, exfoliates, extracts and hydrates in one treatment that is appropriate for all skin types -- normal, oily, sensitive, aging. It also promises help with fine line and wrinkles, pore size, and hyperpigmentation.
  • Cleans and Exfoliates dead skin cells to reveal healthy new skin.
  • Peels gently to help loosen dirt and debris from pores without any irritation.
  • Automatically extracts impurities, and
  • Adds hydration with serums and antioxidants to nourish and protect.
Due to this multi-therapeutic approach, hydra facials are easily differentiated from other forms of skin rejuvenating and microdermabrasion (MDA) treatment procedures.

Why it is more appreciated than any other Facial: This facial is for on-the-go girls! Its multi-therapeutic approach combines various benefits into the time of a single facial session. Some of the merits of a 30 minute procedure are:
  • It targets various skin problems like blackheads, whiteheads, brown spots, acne, sun damage, uneven skin tone, enlarged pores, and the fine lines of premature aging.
  • Improves the overall quality of skin through the extraction of dead layers and cleaning of dirt and debris from the pores.
  • Improvements to facial tone and texture with less dyschromia (skin discoloration)
  • Hydrates and nourishes the skin for much softer and brighter look.
  • Stimulates the blood flow for much healthier-looking skin
  • No downtime, no irritation like other peels with instant results assurance
  • Bespoke Treatment for your skin’s requirement- Which means it is tailored to individual skincare needs.
When it’s not advisable: It is not recommended if you are looking for instant results for following skin conditions:
  • Deep lines
  • Acne
  • Wrinkles
  • Scars
  • Deep Hyperpigmentation problems
  • Broken skin
Skin conditions like above more often demand invasive treatments. However, Hydra Dermabrasion can be used in combination or in conjunction with other invasive treatment to compliment the results.

At KEMPS Skin Clinic Hydra Facials is provided by an expert dermatologist, you may contact and book a prior appointment for better services.

What is oily skin and how to take care of it?

Oily skin is acne-prone skin with open pores, a shiny complexion, blackheads, and pimples. Because hormones affect oil production, anything that changes your hormone levels may affect your skin. ... To keep oily skin clean, wash your face a 2-3 times a day with plain soap and water.

Oily skin is firstly characterized by an overproduction of sebum. This protective oily substance is made by the sebaceous glands and its excess secretion is often visible and sometimes unattractive: shiny skin, enlarged pores, blackheads, or pimples. This is very common at puberty as a result of hormonal changes during which a testosterone derivative attaches to the sebaceous glands and increases sebum production. 

Several other factors influence sebum production by sebaceous glands:
  • Poor skin hygiene;
  • The use of cosmetics that irritate the skin;
  • Hormonal factors: adolescence, taking oral contraceptives, pregnancy, etc.;
  • Genetics;
  • Climatic conditions: heat and humidity, for instance;
  • Toxic substances: tobacco and pollution, for instance;
  • Stress, anxiety, fatigue.
·       Very oil skin has a shiny appearance, especially on the T zone (forehead, nose, and chin). As the pores are enlarged, the texture of the skin appears irregular. In too great a quantity, sebum can block pores and become a fertile ground for acne and other skin problems.

Here is what you can do to reduce the oily appearance of skin:

Cleanse it: Cleansing is the first condition that needs to be respected for good skin. If possible, wash your face twice daily with a very mild and unscented cleanser with a neutral pH. Some cleaning products are specifically formulated for oily skin types. Pat your skin dry with a clean towel instead of rubbing it vigorously. You can also apply a skin-toning lotion to tighten pores. Avoid those containing alcohol because they stimulate sebum production. Do not forget to remove your makeup every night before going to bed.  

Use Moisturize: Oily skin also needs to be moisturized. Some products that have an ultra-light texture, are without oil, and enriched with a sebum-regulating complex. Don’t worry. If you choose the right product, it will not add to your skin’s shine. It will actually have the opposite effect! Be wary of tinted creams because they can stimulate sebum secretion and the appearance of pimples.

Use sunscreen: Protect yourself from the sun’s rays with sunscreen suitable for oily skin types. Avoid tanning salons at any cost. Use a mild exfoliant twice a week. Give yourself a skincare treatment at a beauty salon from time to time. Ask the beautician to adapt the treatment your particular type of skin.

Eat Fresh: Adopt a healthy diet. Eat lots of fruits and vegetables. Avoid fatty and sugary foods such as sausages, deli meats, chocolate, and fast foods. Drink plenty of water. Sleep well, avoid stress, and happily kick the smoking habit!

Remember, having oily skin does have some benefits. Those with oily skin tend to age slower. Oily skin tends to wrinkle less than those with dry or normal skin. To know  more about care of oily skin you may contact Dr. Manju keshari, Senior Dermatologist and Skin Specialist at KEMPS Skin Clinic Vaishali, Sec.4, Ghaziabad.

Hair removal on Sensitive Skin

Hair removal on sensitive skin always a big concern for users. There are some methods for hair removal which majorly used for hair removal:

1-Sugaring:  This method removed hairs from the root so you can be hair-free for weeks on the face or body. Made from all-natural ingredients, there's also less chance of skin irritation that artificial ingredients in wax often cause. Still, you should tell your technician if you have any allergies. The method using the paste (there's also sugaring gel) can remove hair as short as 1/16", You don't have to wait to the 1/4" hair length like with waxing. And because the paste removes in the direction of hair growth, it leads to minimal pulling on the skin, which means less pain and irritation. 

2- Shaving: Using a razor is a common and easy method of hair removal, and the one most people grow upon. For people with sensitive skin, it absolutely can create nasty side effects, but it definitely doesn't have to end in disaster. the main problem with shaving is the wrong products and tools being used. You want to use a razor with a built-in moisturizing agent and use shaving cream. If you already use it, look at the ingredients in the to shaving cream. Other times, an allergy to a common ingredient in shaving products can be the culprit. Finding the cause is key. 

3-Waxing:  Waxing could lead to extreme redness, peeling and scabbing. So there are some cases of skin sensitivity when you shouldn't wax at all. In other cases, you should only avoid a certain area.
Many times the thing that causes lots of redness, tons of pain, or bruising is the wrong type of wax. It can be the fact that it's wrong for the hair or area or that it's a poor quality wax. Other issues from waxing can be caused by the technician not prepping the skin correctly, or removing the wax the wrong way.

4-Threading: Threading is unique, in that it pulls hair out from the root with a thread. It doesn't use any chemicals or heat, so there's no need to worry about product allergies or burns.
Generally, it's gentle to the skin with good tech. And while people sometimes get bumps and redness, it often doesn't last that long. However, the downside to threading is that it's generally only done on facial hair—not anywhere else.

5- Laser Hair Removal:  Lasers use pulsed light to disable the follicle by targeting the pigment. Generally, you will feel some heat and a snapping against the skin. Sensitive skin will sometimes get overly red or swell. It's important to do a patch test to see how skin reacts. If you're getting it professionally done, let them know you have sensitive skin prior to beginning the process.

6-Electrolysis: For sensitive hair removal can be a source of fear and anxiety, getting rid of all or most of the hair permanently can bring great relief. Electrolysis is the only method that's FDA-approved for permanent hair removal, due to its great track record. It utilizes an electric current, and it's a match for all tones of skin and hair colors.

Vitamin C and its benefit on skin

Do you drink a glass of lemon water? Add green chilies to your salad at lunch? If so, your skin thanks you-not only for the healthy diet, but for making sure that you regularly intake vitamin C. Your body needs a variety of nutrients to look and function its best, of course, but C is a particularly important player.

It offers much more than the immune-boosting properties you probably already know it for; because a lot of C is stored in your skin, it helps rejuvenate and protect your complexion whether you get it from food or apply it topically. Simply put, vitamin C should be part of your skincare regimen—as important as washing your face or applying sunscreen. 

What is vitamin C?

As far as your skin is concerned, vitamin C is "a potent antioxidant that can neutralize free radicals," explains by Seniordermatologist  Manju Keshri. "Because of its antioxidant properties, vitamin C provides your skin's naturally a new life its help in the regeneration process, which helps your body repair damaged skin cells fast."

How else does vitamin C benefit the skin?

Amazingly, vitamin C's skin-saving benefits aren't limited to its antioxidant status. It has plenty of other skin-healing properties that make it worthy of a permanent place in your medicine cabinet. For one, because it's highly acidic when vitamin C is used topically "the skin is triggered to heal itself by accelerating the production of collagen and elastin. Collagen and elastin are both naturally occurring protein fibers that help keep skin plump and firm. So, in helping to promote collagen production, topical vitamin C can help prevent premature aging of the skin.

IT HELPS KEEP SKIN STRONG: It's minimizing the appearance of fine lines, vitamin C also helps the surface of your skin appear smoother and firmer by activating cells called fibroblasts that make new collagen.

IT HELPS HEAL SKIN FAST: Cuts, burns and other injuries that lead to scar tissue need the help of vitamin C to repair damaged skin. The vitamin may also play a role in the formation of keratinocytes—cells needed to close up a wound on the skin’s surface. While increasing your vitamin C intake does not appear to speed up the repair process, not getting enough may delay healing.


The recommended daily dose of vitamin C for men is 90 mg; it’s 75 mg for women. Green peppers,  Broccoli, I orange juice, papaya, strawberries, and cantaloupe are all excellent sources. Here’s what happens when you apply vitamin C topically:

IT PROVIDES ANTIOXIDANT PROTECTION.  Vitamin C provides your skin protective antioxidants that fight free radical damage and inflammation caused by the sun, pollution and other factors. The key is using a product that has the L-ascorbic acid form of vitamin C—the only one that can penetrate the deep layers of your skin. While using sunscreen is still the best way to prevent burns and the aging effects of the UV light, rubbing in a vitamin C-containing serum or lotion underneath delivers extra insurance by counteracting the small percentage of UV rays that can sneak through sunblock.
