Mangoes !! This summer fruit can be amazing for your skin ! - Dr.Sravani, Aura Skin & Hair Clinic, Visakhapatnam

"Give your skin a mango glow"



Come summers and the first thing that comes to mind are mangoes!! An integral part of India's culture, they were introduced by the Portuguese in the 15th Century. India is by far the largest producer of this fruit and accounts for about 40% of the entire production in the world. There are more than a 1000 varieties of mango grown in the country.

Emperors have lusted after it and poets have penned verses about its taste and virtues! Lets see how this much loved fruit is good for your skin!

Including mango in your diet is a great way to support your skin health. The high vitamin C content helps support your body’s natural collagen production. The high antioxidant content helps prevent sun damage and premature aging.

Mangoes may also be able to hydrate your skin when applied topically. Mango butter, extracts, and oils are becoming increasingly more popular in skin care products. Let’s look at some of thee benefits in detail.

from vitamins to minerals to antioxidants.
So, what’s so healthy about a mango?


Vitamin C – this important vitamin reduces the damage induced by the sun’s UV rays, although it’s not a sunscreen, it protects against free radicals. Administering vitamin C topically (through the skin) has a better effect for this than taking it orally. It can likewise reduce inflammation caused by acne and lighten the skin.

Vitamin A – also known as Retinol, diminishes fine lines by stimulating collagen production and lightening dark patches on the skin.

Vitamin B6 – a water-soluble vitamin that reduces sebum on the skin (oily skin).

Copper – reduces fine lines and wrinkles, lightens the skin and fights against damage from free radicals.

Potassium – keeps cells hydrated to moisturize the skin.

Magnesium – helps to reduce oily skin, acne, and rosacea.

Beta-carotene - boosts immunity and protects the skin against bacteria and toxins, and prevents premature aging.

Vitamin E – a fat-soluble vitamin that’s famous for hydrating the skin.

Vitamin K – a fat-soluble vitamin that helps to reduce stretch marks and spider veins.


HOW IS MANGO USED IN SKINCARE?

The mango pulp, extracts, butter, and even the skins, are used as natural skincare ingredients to protect, revitalize, and smooth your skin. Most often, you'll see mango extract and mango butter in products.


How mango can be used for skin health:


Along with eating fresh mango, you can consume mango oil or extract for a more concentrated dose of the key nutrients. You can also apply mango directly to your skin using mango butter or by adding mango to a face mask.

Benefits of mango Butter for skin:

Mango butter and cocoa butter have very similar fat profiles and physical properties. Applying mango butter to your skin has the potential to form a protective barrier that helps your skin retain moisture especially for Dry skin. It has a high potential to replenish moisture and soften skin when used in a foot cream.

Avoid mango butter on acne prone skin.

If you develop breakouts from wearing a mask, you are not alone ! - By Aura Skin & Hair Clinic, Visakhapatnam

 MASKNE



In an effort to slow the spread of COVID-19, wearing a face mask has become part of our daily routine and is unavoidable. It’s now required in all public places, such as restaurants and grocery stores, and almost at all times as a barrier against the new coronavirus that spreads through respiratory droplets.


If you develop breakouts from wearing a mask, you’re not alone. This condition, known as “maskne” (mask acne), is a common side effect of using a mask and wearing it for prolonged periods.

Maskne doesn’t simply cause pimples, though. It may also result in skin issues including redness, bumpiness, and irritation and chaffing.


If you’re concerned about maskne, this is definitely the article you should read. We’ll explore the potential causes, as well as ways to treat and prevent it.


Healthcare and other front-line workers are most at risk because their masks are tighter-fitting and they are wearing them longer. Doctors have reported an increase in acne flare-ups in people outside of healthcare as well.


What to know about maskne skin conditions

Generally, “maskne” is an umbrella term for several skin conditions that can be caused by wearing a face mask or covering. It can include:


  • Acne. Acne happens when your pores become clogged with oil, dead skin cells, and dirt. It can cause pimples, whiteheads, or blackheads.

  • Rosacea. If you have rosacea, wearing a mask may cause flare-ups. This can lead to pimples and redness.

  • Contact dermatitis. Contact dermatitis occurs when you’re allergic or sensitive to the material of your mask. It can result in a red rash, along with irritation and blisters.

  • Folliculitis. Folliculitis, or an infection of your hair follicles, causes bumps that look like an acne breakout. You might also experience itchiness or pain.


If you already have one of these conditions, you may be more prone to developing maskne.




How to treat maskne

It’s essential to keep wearing a face mask, even if you have maskne. Keeping your mouth and nose covered is one of the best ways to protect yourself and those around you from COVID-19.

There are several ways to treat maskne symptoms. Let’s take a closer look at each step.


Wash your face regularly


During the pandemic, continue following your regular skin care routine to keep your skin healthy.

This includes washing your face:

  • once in the morning

  • once at night, before going to bed

  • after sweating or wearing a mask

When washing your face, use lukewarm water. Pat your skin dry with a clean towel. Avoid rubbing your skin as this may cause irritation.


Use a gentle cleanser


A gentle cleanser can help remove excess oil, sweat, and bacteria. Avoid cleansers that contain alcohol or perfume. These ingredients can cause irritation and make it harder for your symptoms to heal.

If your maskne is more severe, try a medicated cleanser with benzoyl peroxide or salicylic acid.

If you have sensitive skin, ask your doctor or dermatologist about the best type of medicated cleanser for your skin.


Use a noncomedogenic moisturizer


After washing your face, apply a moisturizer to keep your skin hydrated. Use a noncomedogenic product, which likely won’t block your pores.


Apply cortisone cream and moisturizer with ceramides


If your maskne mostly involves irritation and raw skin, you may want to apply a mild cortisone cream to the area together with a moisturiser that contains ceramides. This can help protect your skin and relieve itching and irritation.


Take a break from makeup


Skip the makeup while you’re treating maskne. Beauty products such as foundation, concealer, and blush can clog your pores and prolong healing.




Maskne prevention tips

Since you’ll likely need to continue wearing a face mask in public for the foreseeable future, it might help to follow these maskne prevention tips.

Wash fabric masks after every use

Never reuse a cloth mask without first washing it. Use unscented hypoallergenic laundry detergent, then let it dry completely.

Apply a topical antibiotic cream

It’s not uncommon for bacteria to build up under a mask, which can lead to acne. To prevent this, dermatologists often recommend applying a topical antibiotic cream or gel on your skin before putting on your face mask.

Toss disposable masks after each use

After wearing a disposable mask, throw it away. Consider keeping several face masks on hand in case you need a fresh one.

Remove your mask every 4 hours

The American Academy of Dermatology Association recommends removing your mask for 15 minutes every 4 hours. This will help give your skin a break.

You should remove your face mask only when you can practice physical distancing with people who aren’t in your household. It’s also important to wash your hands before taking a mask break. Please also make sure it is safe sound to remove your mask.

Apply a moisturiser before wearing a mask

If your skin tends to be dry, a mask may cause irritation. Applying a noncomedogenic moisturizer can help hydrate your skin. A moisturiser can also serve as a barrier between your skin and the mask.

Choose the right mask

To avoid skin issues, be mindful of the type of mask you wear.

Try to wear a face mask that:

  • fits snugly, but not too tight

  • has two or more layers of fabric

  • is made of natural, soft fabric (like cotton)

Avoid masks made of synthetic fabrics, such as nylon or rayon. These materials can irritate the skin.

Wash your face after wearing a mask

Once you’re back at home, wash your face with a gentle cleanser. Follow with a moisturiser to protect your skin. Washing your face is especially important after sweating while wearing a mask.


End note

Although maskne can be frustrating, it’s important to keep wearing face coverings during the COVID-19 pandemic. Regular face-washing, moisturizing, and wearing the right type of mask may help prevent skin problems.

If your maskne is more severe, or if it still persists after trying these recommendations, be sure to follow up with your dermatologist or healthcare provider.

Now photoshop your skin to look flawless in real time with this skin care beauty wand by Opte - Aura Skin & Hair Clinic, Visakhapatnam

CES 2019 may have the answer to our biggest skin care problems with the Opté, a premium beauty device that treats your skin imperfections while covering them flawlessly.


Opte is a system based upon digital technology, and it works to create the most perfect skin possible. Its big advantage is that it works instantly, and will remove any imperfections in the skin and spots within seconds.

The system runs a scan of your skin, that locates every single imperfection. It then sets about correcting each detected imperfection with mineral applications that match the color of your skin exactly.


Check out this video below to see how it works in real time.




Watching the Opté apply makeup looks like magic, its like photoshop in real time, just removing all the spots and making skin look clear.

Opté analyses the photos to pinpoint imperfections, then, it custom-creates a serum designed to hide those imperfections. Finally, a printer with 120 inkjet nozzles, each thinner than a hair, covers the spot precisely with 1,000 picoliter droplets. It all happens nearly instantaneously as you wave the wand over your skin.


Opté is also easier to use than traditional products, which take time and artistry to apply. With the Opté you just scan the Precision Wand across your skin and walk out the door.


Everything comes at a price, Opté wand will be available for $599 by the end of 2019.

6 Beauty Benefits of Potatoes for Hair & Skin, Aura Skin Clinic, Vizag

Potatoes are not just for cooking French fries or chips; they also have numerous health benefits.Here are some of the health benefits of potatoes in enhancing your appearance:


1.) Eliminate your dark circles below your eyes
To use potato as a lightener for dark circles, simply slice the potato in sections. Get a chilled washcloth and cover the potatoes with it. Afterwards close your eyes and put the potatoes over the dark circles. Let it sit for about 20 minutes and then wash with water.
2.)De-Puffer
If you are out of cucumbers, use potatoes to lessen the inflammation of your eyes. Simply slice the potatoes in a thin size and put it in the refrigerator for a several minutes. Then put over your eyes to de-puff them and feel how relieving it is.
3.) Anti-Wrinkles
Get the extract from the potato using a squeezer or a juicer. Then immerse a cotton ball with the extract and put it on your wrinkled part.
4.)Acne Combatant
Use potato juice like a toner. Just soak a cotton ball and apply all over your face. You can also use a Q-tip and start applying on the blemishes.
5.)Sunburn Remedy
Slice some potatoes and put them in the freezer for a few minutes. Once cold, place the slices on the sunburns. An alternative is to use potato juice, which you will simply apply directly onto the sunburns, which will give you a soothing and cooling feeling.
6.)Skin Lightener
Potatoes are really natural whiteners. One solution to use them is to shred the potato and put it as a mask on your face. Wash after 30 minutes. Another procedure is to mix lemon and potato, a mixture that can effectively lighten your skin as it works as a gentle bleaching agent.

While there are several discussions about potatoes being a nutritious food, there’s no hesitation that they have real benefits for our bodies – even for non-beauty motivations. It all relies on how you prepare the root crop.
