Don’t skimp on rich, healthy ingredients this season, even if you are trying to slim down. I tell my patients that what they put in their mouths is as important as the products they apply on their skin" says Dr. Sravani Sandhya ( Dermatologist & Founder of Aura Skin and Hair Clinic). It's important to understand staying hydrated & eating whole foods contain tons of nutrients, phytochemical and enzymes that work synergistically to keep us healthy.Working out regularly and keeping your stress levels down can benefit your skin and hair. Here are 7 things you could adopt in your daily routine to get that natural glow on your skin.




1.) Keep yourself hydrated
First and foremost, drink a lot of water — eight glasses or more each day. You can also down some green tea for a boost of healthy antioxidants, Foods that contain mostly water can be just as hydrating for your skin as drinking H2O. Eat water-dense fruits and veggies such as watermelon, plums, peaches, cucumbers, bell peppers, and lettuce more often.

2.) Avoid too much direct sun exposure
Do not expose yourself for long hours to direct sun heat, as the direct sun heat for long hours causes ageing spots and wrinkles. Before going in to direct sun light, use a good sunscreen.

3.) Exercise regularly
Exercise daily till you start sweating. It opens up your skin pores and the toxins escape from your skin.

4.) Avoid smoking and too much of alcohol
In addition to increasing your risk for lung cancer and heart disease, smoking can also wreak havoc on your skin.Smoking causes your body to produce fewer red blood cells. And with fewer red blood cells your skin can start to lose its healthy glow.Smoking will seriously age you.

5.) Moisturizer
Do you moisturize your skin every day? If you don’t, you should. Both men and women can find many benefits to using high quality facial moisturizer every day.Moisturizing everyday can reduce the chance of developing extreme dryness or oiliness. Both extremes are harmful for skin and cause common skin conditions like acne. Moisturizing your face will help you to look and feel younger, you will have softer, more elastic skin, and it will keep your skin hydrated

6.) Avoid stress
Stress happens to everyone, but since you can't avoid your job, bills, or life, the best thing to do is learn to manage the stress.Even small stressors and anxieties can add up and negatively impact the quantity and quality of your sleep. Get at least eight hours of sleep. Since the light from your smartphone's screen simulates sunlight, shut off any electronic devices an hour before you go to sleep.

7.) Eat healthy natural food
Research is now showing that it’s possible to influence your looks simply by choosing specific foods.Eat natural foods & vegetables more often, avoid fast foods. You are what you eat, your skin and hair is a mirror of your inner well being.

Here Comes The Sun, Are you using the right sunscreen. - By Dr Sravani Sandhya, Aura Skin and Hair Clinic

Have you ever wondered if the sunscreen you are using is really working. find out detailed info on how to choose the right sunscreen for your skin.




What is Sunscreen...?

Sunscreens are agents that alter the effects of uv radiation on skin by absorption or reflection of part of the incident radiation

There are different types of sunscreens available in the market and its always a difficult choice to make….

What are properties of sunscreen?

There are two properties in a sunscreen which you should look for SPF (sun protection factor) and substantivity 

What are types of suncreens?

UVA sunscreens
UVB sunscreens
Broad spectrum sunscreen

So which sunscreen can I use?

Your sunscreen should be able to take care of two types of UV light that is both UVA and UVB. Which is a broad spectrum sunscreen.

What does a broad-spectrum sunscreen do?

There are two types of UV light that can harm your skin — UVA and UVB. A broad-spectrum, or full-spectrum, sunscreen is designed to protect you from both. 

UVA rays can prematurely age your skin, causing wrinkling and age spots. UVB rays can burn your skin. Too much exposure to UVA or UVB rays can cause skin cancer. The best sunscreen offers protection from all UV light. 

Only broad-spectrum sunscreens with an SPF of 15 or higher can claim to reduce the risk of skin cancer or prevent early skin aging.

What is SPF and how much SPF should I use?

SPF stands for sun protection factor, which is a measure of how well the sunscreen deflects UVB rays. Theoretically, a sunscreen with SPF15 provides 94% protection from UVB radiation and SPF30 provides 97% protection.Also, keep in mind that sunscreen is often not applied thoroughly or thickly enough, and it might be washed off during swimming or sweating. As a result, even the best sunscreen might be less effective than the SPF number on the bottle would lead you to believe.

Things to remember

Apply generous amounts of sunscreen to dry skin 30 minutes before you go outdoors. 

Use sunscreen on all skin surfaces that will be exposed to sun, such as your face, ears, hands, arms and lips. If you don't have much hair on your head, apply sunscreen to the top of your head or wear a hat.

Reapply sunscreen every two hours — and immediately after swimming or heavy sweating.

Remember that sand, water, snow and concrete reflect sunlight and make it even more important to use sunscreen.

Since UV light can pass through clouds, use sunscreen even when it's cloudy. 

You can apply sunscreen to children as young as age 6 months. Keep younger children in the shade as much as possible. 

Use sunscreen year-round, but don't let any product lull you into a false sense of security about sun exposure. A combination of shade, clothing, sunscreen and common sense is your best bet.

Consult our Dermatologist for more info on sun protection and how to take good care of your skin this summer.

8 Amazing Skin and Hair Benefits of Watermelon - Dr Sravani Sandhya, Aura Skin & Hair Clinic - Vizag



Watermelon is an exceptionally healthy fruit which has a sweet and delicious taste, and is packed with water, making it excellent for maintaining good hydration. It is particularly refreshing on a hot summer day, and may be considered the ultimate summer fruit.




1. Hydrates and Moisturises Skin
Watermelon is 93% water. Dehydrated skin can lead to a dull and dry appearance, but watermelon helps to keep the skin hydrated and moisturised. This helps keep your skin supple and looking great.

2. Removes Dark Circles
Eating watermelon over a period of time, all the beta carotene of this fruit gets converted to Vitamin A. This not only helps in improving your eyesight but also helps in getting rid of those dark circles under your eyes and making your eyes more attractive.

3. Helps You Get Proper Beauty Sleep
When you eat watermelon, a hormone called serotonin, the sleep hormone is secreted. This is due to the presence of polysaccharide carbohydrates in the fruit. When there is proper secretion of this sleeping hormone, your sleeping regulates and your body gets proper rest. And proper sleep is responsible in making your skin healthier.

4. Gives You Wonderful Glowing Skin
As watermelon contains anti-oxidants, it detoxes your body and skin. When these harmful toxins get removed from your skin, it naturally becomes brighter and healthier.

5. Natural Toner 
Watermelon is a natural astringent which changes the appearance of your skin and makes it look better. This fruit contains natural contents which can shrink the body skin tissues which help in toning of the skin. This also reduces blemishes and acne problems.

6. Slows Down Aging Process
Free radicals present in the body can quicken aging process such as wrinkles, fine lines and age spots on your skin. Watermelon contains anti-oxidants such as Lycopene and Vitamin C and A which can fight off with these free radicals and decrease all kinds of skin aging.

7. Controls Oiliness Of Your Skin
The abundant Vitamin A present in the watermelon decreases the skin pore size and controls the oil secretions. So, if you want to get a cure for your oily skin, don’t forget to add this fruit to your diet.

8. Promotes Hair Growth
Arginine (an amino acid) is essential in our bodies and helps with blood circulation in the scalp. Watermelon naturally contains a lot of citrulline that increases the level of arginine and is therefore good for promoting hair growth.

Snack on Citrus for Natural Glowing Skin #skincaretips by Dr. Sravani Sandhya , Aura Skin Clinic, Visakhapatnam



Natural oils in Oranges help to moisturise skin, providing softer healthier looking skin for
longer.

Antioxidants found in Oranges fight free radicals which may slow down the production
of wrinkles, and stop premature aging.

Oranges have a high content of citric acid which aids in skin exfoliation and improving
the overall look of your skin.

Orange peel has a higher content of Vitamin C than the orange itself, so grind orange
peel and use as a body scrub (not to face) in your daily beauty regime for a healthy
looking glow.

Vitamin C helps the body to form collagen and elastin which will keep your skin looking
younger and more supple.

Oranges could also prevent skin sagging, and may improve firmness.

8 Tips For Beautiful Skin - Dr. Sravani, Aura Skin & Hair Clinic , Visakhapatnam


Watch Sun Exposure Indoors

Yes, you read it right: UV rays (in particular UVA rays) can penetrate the windows in your home and office and cause wrinkling and brown spots.




Consider Your Water

Apart from hydrating yourself by drinking water at regular intervals.water that is used to bathe is equally important…Hard water doesn’t allow washes to lather easily, prompting you to use more soap, which can cause dryness. (Gentle, nonsoap formulas, which aren’t meant to lather, can minimize this).

“Soft water doesn’t remove soap well, so it can leave a residue on your skin.(If your water is soft, use face and body cleansers sparingly).


Drink Green Tea

Since vizag is hot round the year. “Iced tea is best because hot beverages can worsen redness and other symptoms of rosacea.”

Another benefit: The epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) in green tea may help prevent the collagen destruction that leads to wrinkles as well as sun-induced DNA damage in the skin . 


Keep Stress in Check

It takes a toll on nearly every part of your body, including your skin. Acne, hair fall, rosacea, psoriasis etc etc.


Improve Your Air Quality

Avoiding smoky environments is smart, since “just being around smoke can lead to the release of free radicals that damage skin and hasten aging,”


Switch to Plain Toothpaste

Those with tartar-control ingredients or added flavors, like cinnamon, may contribute to a common skin condition called perioral dermatitis.

It looks like pimples, redness, and scaling around the mouth.


Choose Water-Based Hair Products

Some conditioners, as well as pomades, volumizers, and styling creams, contain oils or waxes that can clog pores and create acne, especially on the forehead, the back, and the hairline. 



Sleep a Full Night

While you’re snoozing, the skin’s repair mechanisms swing into action. Being sleep-deprived, by contrast, puts stress on the body, causing it to release more adrenaline and cortisol, which can trigger breakouts and other skin

To keep that frazzled feeling under control, regularly practice stress-management techniques, like yoga, deep breathing, and meditation.

The Real Effect Of Stress On Your Skin & Hair - Aura Skin Clinic , Vizag

Stress happens to everyone, but since you can't avoid your job, daily chores, or life, the best thing to do is learn to manage the stress. This includes eating healthy, exercising regularly, getting enough sleep, and taking care of yourself.



Dark Circles & Under Eye Bags: Tomorrow's to-do list can weigh on your mind, keeping you from getting enough beauty sleep. This can cause fluid to pool below your lower eyelid area, and what you end up with is a puffy mess in the morning.

Get at least eight hours of sleep. Since the light from your smartphone's screen simulates sunlight, shut off any electronic devices an hour before you go to sleep.

Acne: Stress causes skin issues to flare up regardless of what you're prone to, whether it's acne, psoriasis, or eczema. When it comes to acne, stress releases cortisol, which can throw off the other hormones in your body and cause breakouts on your face or body.

Drinking a lot of water and eating a well-balanced diet are important, since your body can't handle stress well if it's not properly nourished. Fruits, vegetables, and high-quality proteins like grass-fed meats are also crucial.

Graying Hair & Hair Loss: "If you're predisposed to gray hair, stress can cause the melanin in your hair to stop producing, leaving it gray. "It can also cause your hair to become thinner in diameter over time."Hair loss is usually a reaction to significant physiological stress caused by an extreme change in your diet, medical issues, or sudden lifestyle changes.

A variety of stress may cause your body to undergo hair loss, when there's some type of physiological change in your system. "For instance,you go on or off an oral contraceptive or you lose more than 8 kilos of weight.Things like this change the physiological balance in your system.

It's also important to note that not all hair loss is anxiety related, but the two may occur at a similar period of time. Many people that start to suffer from hair loss are at an age with many other stresses, like kids, work, and finances. Because they happen at the same age they may seem related, but are technically different conditions.

The good news for anxiety sufferers is that not all anxiety related hair loss is permanent. If stress and anxiety are what caused your hair loss, then reducing that anxiety can help your hair come back.

If you notice your hair falling out more than usual, talk to your doctor to make sure nothing serious is going on.

Fine Lines: Constantly making certain facial expressions, like furrowing your brows when you're stressed or pursing your lips, can lead to deeper wrinkles in these areas over time.


Stay Balanced & Look Beautiful : It’s okay to push yourself as great things can happen when you step out of your comfort zone. But always be aware of your boundaries, as your soul responds the same as your skin; when you don’t take enough time to strengthen, you’ll weaken your natural barrier and be more susceptible to having problems.

Drink a lot of water — eight glasses or more each day. You can also have some green tea for a boost of healthy antioxidants and eat foods that have a high water content. (fruits and veggies like cucumbers, tomatoes, beets, and celery are 80 to 90 percent water).

Dark Circles & Tips on Improvement by Dr.Sravani Sandhya, Aura Skin Clinic Vizag


when someone promises you that dark circles can be completely treated, think twice!!! Dark circles cannot be treated completely but we can be improved with the latest treatments available…




what are dark circles?


Dark circles under the eyes (DC) are defined as bilateral, round, homogeneous pigmenion below the eyes.After exhaustive research and discussions with medical experts, we have found that your solution won't be found in a specialty product labeled with miraculous claims or a miracle ingredient. 
Some of the factors are:

• Sun damage

• Leakage of  capillaries and deposition of heme.

• Post inflammatory pigmentation secondary to Irritants and Allergens.

• Genetic trait for having darker color around or under the eye area

• Shadowing due to skin laxity.

• Buildup of dry, damaged skin cells around the eyes, causing light to reflect poorly.

 

 How can i improve Dark Circles?


Always keep in mind that for some people, getting rid of dark circles

entirely just isn't possible, so keep your expectations reasonable.

• Use a lightweight moisturizer with sunscreen (SPF 25 or greater) under the eye area every day(the overproduction of melanin that can make dark circles worse).This is a hugely important step that shouldn't be ignored!

• Always wear sunglasses outdoors.

• Use a more emollient moisturizer at night.

• Foundation and concealer will be of great help.

• Skin lightening creams can be tried.

 

 Medical options:

• Dermal fillers, lasers, light treatments, radio frequency treatments, and chemical peels for lightening dark circles and reducing wrinkles,

• Q-switched ruby laser is the most common choice for treating dark circles which are available in Aura skin and hair clinic.
