What causes under eye darks circles, pigmentation and know the best treatment options - by Dr Sravani Sandhya , Aura Skin Clinic , Vizag.

Dark circles under the lower eyelids are common in men and women. Often accompanied by bags, dark circles can make you appear older than you are.While there are many causes including genes, stress, oversleeping and sleep deprivation, let us take a look at other factors that can lead to them.



Melanin: If you have not heard about melanin, you must have known about pigmentation. This happens when there is extra absorption of melanin under our eye which results in pigmentation. Consulting a dermatologist would be a quick relief. Usually, he would recommend dark circles under eyes cream as per your condition.

Sleep Deprivation: Oversleeping, extreme fatigue, or just staying up a few hours past your normal bedtime can cause dark circles to form under your eyes. Sleep deprivation can cause your skin to become dull and pale, allowing for dark tissues and blood vessels beneath your skin to show.

Fluid Retention: Sometimes, because of fluid retention, our skin around the eyes dome up. This causes puffiness and dark circles are a result of the shadows from the puffiness of eyes. There could be numerous reasons for puffiness such as allergies, high salt consumption, stress etc.

Age: Natural aging is another common cause of those dark circles beneath your eyes. As you get older, your skin becomes thinner. You also lose the fat and collagen needed to maintain your skin’s elasticity.

Thinner Skin: Did you know that the skin type differs from person to person? Those with thinner skin around the eyes are more susceptible to dark circles. Thankfully, we have treatment procedures to remove dark circle under eyes.

Dehydration:
Dehydration is a common cause of dark circles under your eyes. When your body is not receiving the proper amount of water, the skin beneath your eyes begins to look dull and your eyes look sunken.Drink lot of water to hydrate your skin .

Skin Sagging:
Individuals who reach a certain age start facing problem of sagging skin. However, premature aging of skin is also predominant among people who are in constant contact with sun. Overexposure to the sun can cause your body to produce an excess of melanin, the pigment that provides your skin with color. Too much sun particularly for your eyes can cause pigmentation in the surrounding skin to darken.Using sunscreen can help avoid this problem.

Genetics: Family history also plays a part in developing dark circles under your eyes. It can be an inherited trait seen early in childhood, and may worsen as you age or slowly disappear.

Iron Deficiency: Because of deficiency of iron, the blood that reaches the eyes lack proper amount of oxygen and the insufficient level of oxygen to the eye tissue cause them to look darker.

Treatment Options for Dark Circles & Pigmentation.


For a more effective and permanent solution, some medical treatments are available to reduce the appearance of dark circles. Some of the more common methods include:
  • chemical peels to reduce pigmentation
  • laser procedures to resurface the skin and enhance skin tightening
  • tissue fillers to conceal blood vessels and melanin that are causing skin discolouration under your eyes.
  • medical tattoos to inject pigment into thinning skin areas
  • fat removal to remove excess fat and skin, revealing a smoother and more even surface
Before deciding on any cosmetic procedure, discuss your options with our doctor and based on your condition we can prescribe the right treatment options.

Top 5 things a dermatologist should tell you this winter - By Dr Sravani Sandhya, Aura Skin & Hair Clinic, Visakhapatnam

Follow these 5 important tips, these are the most essential things you need do to keep your skin safe during cold winters.

winter skin care



1.) Stay Hydrated

Your skin will become drier and often more sensitive with the onset of colder weather, You need to keep your skin hydrated as the atmospheric air is drier in winters. An easy way to keep it hydrated is by drinking lots of water or swap your coffee for green tea which has great anti-oxidant effects. Though you might not feel as thirsty during winters as the other seasons but its good to maintain your regular water intake.

2.) Choose Skin Care Products Wisely

What kept your skin happy during summers can make it sad during winters. And that’s why you need to change your skin care products accordingly. The key to healthy and glowing winter skin is using mild skin care products. 

Avoid masks and peels, astringent lotions, and any product that contains alcohol as they make your skin dry during winters.

3.) Consider professional skin treatments

“Winter is a great time of year for skin treatments. We always worry about peels and laser treatment in the summer months. With sun exposure before or after such procedures there is a higher risk of unwanted post-inflammatory hyper-pigmentation. Autumn and winter therefore represents an opportunity.


4.) Protect Your Skin

The warm sun rays feel pleasant in winters, but the UV rays can damage your skin a lot. Choose a sunscreen that has titanium dioxide or zinc oxide. Also, avoid going outside immediately after you have washed your hands or after a shower.

5.) Always carry a Lip balm

Almost all of our dermatologists agree that chapped lips are a fact of life during winter, but by regularly applying a hydrating balm, they do what they can to stay ahead of the dryness."Lips become chapped because when people go out in the cold and don’t protect their lips, they tend to get wind burned,” Dr. Sravani Sandhya says.

Don’t skimp on rich, healthy ingredients this season, even if you are trying to slim down.

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.

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

Winter Skin Care Tips by Dr Sravani Sandhya, Aura Skin Clinic, Visakhapatnam

After watching game of thrones we know what it is like to face winter. But we have good news for you!!!!

At aura skin and hair clinic we know how to combat this weather



DULL SKIN - Firstly what is dull skin?

Dull skin can make you look tired and old, even when you're well rested. When your skin has a layer of dead skin cells on the surface, your skin doesn't reflect light as it naturally would with new, healthy skin. 

Causes

• Major causes of skin disorders can be stated as:
• Aging
• Exposure to the Sun
• Contact with allergens and irritants
• Food habits
• Hormonal Imbalance

Simple 5 Step skin routine you can follow to make your skin rejuvenate.

Step 1
Invest in a good quality exfoliating scrub that contains fruit acids, glycolic acid or abrasive beads that help slough away the dead cells on the surface of the skin. Dead skin cells don't reflect light well, instead making your skin look dry and dull. exfoliating once weekly will help to keep skin looking bright. Opt for a daily cleanser 

Step 2
Apply an oil-free moisturizer several times daily. Dry skin can often take on a dull, chapped appearance that can make you look tired. Apply moisturizer each day, even if your skin doesn't feel dry. Look for one labeled "noncomedogenic" so you know it won't cause breakouts, even with frequent applications.

Step 3
Wear sunscreen every day. Sun damage can make your skin look discolored and dull, so it's important that a sunscreen with an SPF of 15 or above for Indian skin to become part of your daily skin care regimen. If adding a sunscreen sounds like too much of a bother, look for a daily moisturizer with a built-in sunscreen to help streamline your morning routine.

Step 4
Wear a tinted moisturizer or tinted sunscreen instead of a thick and heavy foundation. A tinted sunscreen will help your skin's natural color and texture to shine through while adding light reflecting minerals to keep your skin looking bright. Heavy foundations and powders can dull the skin and give it a matte appearance, which can actually make you look older.

Step 5
Schedule an appointment with your dermatologist if lifestyle and cosmetic remedies don't seem to be helping your dull skin problem. Your dermatologist can suggest a number of skin care procedures to be done in the office to help speed skin cell turnover and reveal more youthful skin. 
If you feel that your skin has gone dull or darker in shade and has developed blemishes, dark spot, acne, wrinkles or textural irregularities, you should consider choosing the Skin Rejuvenation. Your age, appearance, and style is completely your choice.

Enjoy Holi "The Festival of Colors" in a Safe Way. - Dr. Sravani, Aura Skin & Hair Clinic - Vizag

Holi is that one coloruful day of the year that we all look forward to. With all the Parties,  Bollywood music, delicious food. It’s that time of the year when you play with colours that add joy to your life.As much as we love this awesome festival of colours, we just hate the aftermath.

So, before you step out, make sure you have these checks in place. Here are a few tips that will help make your Holi a fun-filled, safe and colourful one.

1.) Use organic colours only:

Going the organic way is the new trend, and it’s time we stop using colours with chemicals. Organic colours are chemical-free, easy to wash off and so much gentler to your skin.

2.) Cover Up :

Always wear clothes that cover your body, to protect it from strong colours.

3.) Apply Coconut Oil:

Coconut oil is that one miracle product that’ll get you out of every kind of beauty dilemma.before you head out for the day, make sure to lather on your choice of coconut oil on your hair, as well as your body. It’ll make getting cleaned up twice as easy.

4.) Don’t wait for the colours to dry:

Once you’re home, don’t let the colours stay on for too long, take a shower immediately. Use a gentle shampoo to clean your hair, a soft face wash to wash your face and a non-alkaline cleanser to wash your body.It’ll leave your skin feeling clean and refreshed without over-drying it.

5.) Do not use abrasive scrubs or kerosine to wash colours off:

More often than not, it's not the colour that much, but the chemicals used in washing away those colours that damage the skin more.Have patience. It's not bad to let it show that you had played Holi the previous day. The residual colours will slowly fade.

6.) Sunscreen is good for you:

keep using the sunscreen for two more weeks after holi at frequent intervals. Your skin is likely to remain sensitive, especially for people who are known to have allergic conditions. If you develop a rash over the next couple of day, please visit your dermatologist as soon as possible.

7.) Stay Hydrated:

Dehydration causes skin to dry out and this, along with the added chemicals you’re dealing with on holi, can cause skin damage. As you will be spending most of the time outdoors in the sun, it’s always good to drink more water.

8.) Moisturise well:

Use a generous amount of moisturiser on your entire body after taking a shower. This will help get rid of roughness and make sure your skin stays glowing, all day long.
