Jade rollers - The Anti-Aging tool - By Dr Sravani, Aura Skin & Hair Clinic, Visakhapatnam

Jade Rollers

Jade facial roller has history of more than 1000s years. It is used from ancient dynasty era. In the past, only richest & most powerful women of their time can possess such a treasure price.It is used to enhance natural beauty. Chinese refers to jade stone as "Stone of Heaven" representing health, wealth, longevity & prosperity.In 2018, jade rollers were all the rage on Instagram, beloved by beauty bloggers across the globe.



The crystal isn't just aesthetically pleasing, but most of the benefits come from the fact that it's cold to the touch (and even more so if like some enthusiasts, you store it in the fridge). “The practice of applying a cold sensation and pressure to an area has been used for centuries because it works without fail,” “It’s simple: The cold restricts blood flow to a particular area, and pressure pushes fluid, known as lymph, to the lymph nodes, which process it and drain it out.”

The little gadget is most commonly made from jade or rose quartz. Some have two roller balls, and some look a bit like a tiny rolling pin (with rollers of varying sizes fixed to both ends of the handle).You can also find rollers made of rose quartz, amethyst, obsidian and metal however jade and rose quartz are relatively more popular.

They’re all said to offer major skin benefits.

So why exactly are people massaging their faces with a face roller? And is this trend here to stay? Let's find out……

A search of #jaderoller on Instagram pulls up more than 116,000 posts, because not only are jade rollers a hot topic of conversation, they’re also more photogenic than, say, tubes of prescription retinol.


How to use a facial roller

Apply a facial oil, serum, or moisturiser which is slippery. If you don’t have lubrication, the tool can pull or tug the skin, which may actually contribute to wrinkles.

Start at the neck and roll upward. For best results, roll up, not back and forth.

Roll from the jawline to the ear on both sides using gentle pressure. You can continue this motion all the way from the jaw to the cheekbone.

Roll from the forehead up toward the temples, only in the upward direction.

Roll flat over your eyebrows horizontally, which may feel especially relieving if you have a headache.

Roll outwards under the eye to reduce under eye bags.

You can use the smaller roller for the sides of the nose.


How to Clean a jade roller?


Remember to keep your jade roller clean with washcloth.use a gentle face wash or soap to kill bacteria and rinse thoroughly with room temperature water.

Avoid putting very hot water on your facial roller or soaking it in water.

It is a cheaper alternative to facials and can give you a few of the benefits if performed regularly at a fraction of the price. It makes us feel we are doing something for our skin at the end of a long and tiring day! We are yet to see how long this beauty craze lasts but until then why not give in to this INSTA trend for the sake of glowing skin!!


Come grab one from our clinic and get all that glow.

Toners! Do you really need them? - Dr.Sravani Sandhya, Chief Dermatologist, Aura Skin & Hair Clinic, Visakhapatnam

What is a toner?

A face toner is a quick, absorbing liquid that helps to remove excess dirt, traces of oil and makeup. It corrects and balances the pH of your skin. It is the step followed before moisturising and follows the cleansing routine.In other words, a facial toner thoroughly cleans the skin and helps remove built up surface dead skin cells. Toners help to clean and close pores.



Choosing a toner for your skin type:

First of all, it's important to always use an alcohol-free face toner. The other ingredients should be picked based on your skin type.

For acne-prone skin, choose an alcohol free toner with alpha hydroxy acid (AHA). This will leave your skin clean and glowing without flaking. A gentle tingle for a few seconds will let you know it has just the right pH level that is slightly acidic. This form of acid is gentle even for sensitive skin, unlike irritating ingredients like retinoids.Salicylic acid is often recommended in a facial toner for acne prone skin. However, this ingredient can be harsh and irritating, especially for sensitive skin.

For dry skin skin and for those who are in 30's and 40's ingredients may like coenzyme Q10, hyaluronic acid, glycerin and vitamin C are helpful.

Witch hazel, aloe vera, grapefruit seed extract, cucumber and vitamin E are some of the soothing ingredients if you have combination skin

If you have oily skin, sandalwood, willow bark, lavender, clary sage and tea tree are your best bet.

For sensitive skin, look for soothing ingredients like aloe vera and cucumbers.

Although essential oils and plant extracts are marketed to help give them a 'natural' and 'good for you' feel, these ingredients may result in skin irritations so it's best to avoid these.


How to use a face toner?
  • Start by cleaning your face with a gentle cleanser for sensitive skin or one that is suited for your skin type. 
  • Dampen a cotton ball with the alcohol-free toner, and apply it on your face.
  • Allow it to dry.
  • If you have combination or oily skin, you can use an alcohol-free toner at day and night. For dry skin, it's best to only use it once a day at night time.
  • Always follow with moisturiser for your skin type.


Side effects of using a toner

Toners do not have any adverse side effects, as long as you avoid alcohol-based ones which may irritate your skin. Overusing a toner (more than twice a day) can cause skin irritation. 

Can I Skip Toner?

You can skip using a toner in case your cleanser is already pH balanced and gives you a squeaky clean look.

A Cosmetic Procedure that is praised by women and men alike - By Aura Skin & Hair Clinic, Daspalla Hills

DIAMOND MICRODERMABRASION

One of the most popular cosmetic skin care treatments available is diamond microdermabrasion, a procedure that is praised by women and men alike. No chemicals or anesthesia are used in the procedure, which is known for being simple and pain-free. It is appropriate for most skin types because it is non-invasive and can effectively reduce or eliminate wrinkles, acne, age spots, stretch marks, and more.



Microdermabrasion treatments are done in medical offices and spas by dermatologists or people who specialize in skin care. You will see immediate results after the procedure, but to get the best effect, you will need as many as six to nine treatments.




Microdermabrasion works by removing a few of the top layers of the skin called the stratum corneum. Much like brushing your teeth, microdermabrasion helps to gently remove "plaque" and skin debris. Since human skin typically regenerates at approximately 30-day intervals, skin improvement with microdermabrasion is temporary and needs to be repeated at average intervals of two to four weeks for continued improvement. Multiple treatments in combination with sunscreen, sun avoidance, and other skin-care creams yield best results.

  • Microdermabrasion is safe for almost everyone, doesn't require anesthesia, and has shown promising results in clinical studies.
  • It reduces lines, wrinkles, and dull-looking skin.
  • It helps to treat age spots and uneven pigmentation.
  • Enlarged pores and blackheads are visibly diminished.
  • Helps treat acne and acne scars.
  • Fades stretch marks.

What ages are appropriate for microdermabrasion?

While there are no specific age or sex restrictions, typically children over age 15 up to adults age 65 can get microdermabrasion. While there is no age limit, mature skin over age 70 may have slightly higher risks of bruising and skin abrasions. Individuals younger than age 12 may sometimes also receive treatment under the care of a dermatologist.


Side effects of microdermabrasion

Common side effects of microdermabrasion include mild tenderness, swelling, and redness. These generally go away within a few hours after treatment.

You might be advised to use a moisturizer to minimize dry and flaky skin. Minor bruising may also occur. This is mostly caused by the suction process during the treatment.

What to expect after microdermabrasion?

There is little to no downtime after microdermabrasion. You should be able to resume your daily activities immediately.

Keep your skin hydrated and use gentle skin care products. Avoid using topical acne medications for at least one day after treatment. It’s extremely important to protect your skin with sunscreen. Your skin can be more sensitive to the sun in the few weeks after the treatment.

You can expect to see noticeable results immediately after the procedure. The number of microdermabrasion sessions needed will depend on the severity of your skin concerns as well as your expectations.

Your provider will likely design a plan for the initial number of sessions, as well as periodic maintenance treatments.

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.
