How to put your best face forward, according to Dr. Pimple Popper

You have to start investing in a heavy-duty moisturiser to keep your skin at its best during the harsh winter months. More 2018 was a big year for Dr. Sandra Lee, better known as Dr. Pimple Popper . After racking up millions of followers thanks to her engrossing viral videos which see her popping blackheads, the year blessed the California-based cosmetic and surgical dermatologist with a TV show, one that TLC renewed for a second season . All this, and Lee did what she said was one of the hardest things: write a book. Put Your Best Face Forward: The Ultimate Guide to Skincare from Acne to Anti-Aging is more than 250 pages of skin wonderment, filled with cosmetic and procedural skin advice, treatments, dos and donts and lots and lots of photos (the before and after snapshots of peoples skin, kind of photos). “I definitely think the initial reaction to pimple popping is disgust or interest or obsession, and Ive definitely seen people get pulled in who didnt care for it initially. There is something hypnotizing and satisfying about it,” Lee tells Yahoo Canada . The book is comprehensive and comes with subheadings likeYour doctor should never laser off a wart!” andLiposuction is not a license to eatmixed among countless teachings, scientific classifications and skincare considerations. It gets into Botox, moles, skin tags, how hormones affect our skin, and outlines the different types of acne scars so readers understand what theyre looking at. Notes about surgical procedures like earlobe reconstruction? Its in the book. Lee also identifies the culprits of aging skin, which she says are free radicals (unstable and reactive molecules), ultraviolet radiation (sun exposure), inflammation (UV radiation, irritants) and glycation (excess sugar). She also really stresses the importance of using sunscreen as well. “Sunscreen application is year-round, and dont just rely on the sunscreen that is in your makeup,” advises Lee. “Apply a broad screen protection sunscreen. Think of it as a primer for your skin.” By wearing sunscreen, and ideally starting the process in ones twenties, Lee says we can see benefits such asfewer skin cancers, less prominent blotchiness and blood vessels, fewerage spotsand less chance of melasma.” According to Lee, “pretty much everything we dislike about our skin when we get older in some part has to do with the sun exposure we had when we were young.” Treating acne In the book Dr. Lee talks about how natural ingredients can be used to treat mild acne. These natural ingredients meanany component derived from a plant, animal, mineral, or mircorbial source that is found in nature or produced using minimal physical processing.” However, Lee doesnt just idle the au natural approach. “Several natural remedies can reduce inflammation and block breakouts, but they arent as effective as other OTC (over-the-counter) ingredients produced synthetically or by more complex chemical processes,” says Lee. Natural acne treatments are also listed in the book, citing things like tea tree oil, zinc, and green tea extract as ways to treat mild acne.” Skin care products are always in abundance so finding the right fit can be challenging. Dr. Lee says look for skin products labelled noncomedogenic or nonacnegenic asthey wont clog pores.” Demystifying BotoxI use [the name] Botox generically here like you use Kleenex or Xerox because it is the first and most recognizable term. Currently, there are two other FDA-approved forms of botulinum toxin that can be used for cosmetic use: Dysport and Xeomin,” Lee says. While she wouldnt disclose a specific age when people could consider Botox or fillers (soft cosmetic injectables), Lee did give us a breakdown on the procedure and its purpose. “You want to start preventing your frown line, so those 11s between your brows, from becoming permanent fixtures on you when youre not even frowning. Consider treating them with Botox if you hate them, before they stick around when your facial muscles are at rest, because then you will need more than just Botox to make the lines disappear.” Lee also recommends using topical tretinoin or over the counter retinol products (if you cannot get a prescription). “You will thank your younger self because it is probably the only thing out there that has proven the test of time with numerous of studies to show that it can help to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and even help prevent the development of skin cancers,” argues Dr. Lee. Story continues Lee says that Botox is generally the first thing that people try when they consider cosmetic procedures for anti-aging and anti-wrinkle reasons. “Its really quickmany times its a pretty painless procedure with not a huge cost and theres virtually no downtime with significant improvement or minimization of negative lines and expressions.” “Botox does not ruin your face permanently,” asserts Lee. “It is just temporary prevents specific muscles from moving and [results] usually lasts three to four months. The trick is to do it conservatively, you can always add more, but if you do too much sometimes you can look unnatural or even plastic and unmovable.” Lets talk about winter Now that weve entered colder temperatures our winter skin game needs to step in. Dr. Lee recommends switching from moisturizing lotions, which are water based, to creams which are thicker and provide more moisutrizing because they are oil based. “I am on the dry side, so I always pay careful attention to moisturization. I especially like moisturizers that contain hyaluronic acid and have created a wonderful HA serum that Im addicted to. Its part of my skin care line, SLKMDskincare.” While we often hear that diet is a root to understanding acne, Dr. Lee believes it more has to do with hormones that may be added to our food. And just in case you want to know why your doctor should never laser off a wart. “Using a laser pulverizes the virus particles but then releases them into the air. In the past, laser treatments led other people in the treatment area (patients and staff) to develop wars on their nostrils because they breathed in the wart viruses released into air!” Let us know what you think by commenting below and tweeting @ YahooStyleCA!

Indian Ayurvedic Skin Care Products & Beauty Brands That Make Them

Indian Ayurvedic Skin Care Products & Beauty Brands That Make Them Posted on by safi
Ayurveda is an ancient, natural healing tradition that dates back to over 5000 years. Having its roots in the Indian Subcontinent, Ayurvedic recipes were documented in Vedas (Ayurvedic Texts). Ayurveda is not just about skin care, it is an overall healing method of the body, mind and soul. Ayurveda is such a huge subject to talk about. But lets stick on to the topicIndian Ayurvedic Skin Care Products. In the modern days, the words herbal and ayurvedic is used interchangeably which isnt correct. Herbal simply means that the formulation is made of a blend of herbs and plants. But when you say the product is ayurvedic, it not only involves herbs and plants, but it also involves metallic components like copper, gold, silver, tin and animal extracts like milk, etc. This post will be all about Indian Ayurvedic Skin Care Products & Brands that you need to look for.
I will be covering four things in this post The Authentic Indian Ayurvedic Skin Care Products The Manufacturing Companies of Ayurvedic Skin Care Products Ayurveda Based Beauty Brands(The Best Ones) And the Rest of the Ayurveda Beauty Brands. Indian Ayurvedic Skin Care Products 1. Kumkumadi Thailam Kumkumadi Tailam is a herbal oil infusion meant to improve skin tone and texture.
What does it contain? The traditional ayurvedic recipe is made with a blend of 16 (or more) carefully picked herbs, flowers, fruits and milk extracts. The key ingredient is Saffron (Kumkumadi means Saffron, hence the name) which is considered as a renowned potent potion for improving skin tone and texture. The other wonderful Indian herbs that usually goes into this herbal infusion are Red Sandalwood, Licorice, Turmeric, Manjistha, Vetiver, Wild Himalayan Cherry, Manjistha, Lotus Pollen, Fig to name a few. It will also contain some uncommon ingredients like Lac Secretion and Goat Milk. Kumkumadi Thailam is most often made in either Coconut Oil Base (called Kumkumadi Keera Thailam) or Sesame Oil Base (called Kumkumadi Thailam).
What does it do? The Kumkumadi Oil is known to work amazingly well for hyperpigmentation, discolorations, acne marks, dark spots while improving overall skin complexion giving a radiant glow. It can be used as leave on oil, as a massage oil or for oil cleansing, depending upon your skin type.
Notes & Precautions It is not a vegan product since it contains Lac secretion and Goat Milk. Depending upon your body type, pick the Coconut Oil Base if you have heat body as it cools down the body. But if you are prone to cold, it is ideal to pick the Sesame Oil Base. If you are skeptical about using oils, then there is a cream (or say ointment) version called Kumkumadi Lepam which has almost similar benefits.
Recommendations: Kottakkal Arya Vaidya Sala Kunkumadi Tailam, Vaidyaratnam Kunkumadi Thailam and Kama Ayurvedic Kumkumadi Miraculous Beauty Fluid 2. Nalpamaradi Thailam Nalpamaradi Thailam is a herbal oil infusion that is fabled for skin lightening and brightening.
What does it contain? The classical formulation is made with a blend of fruits, herbs, plant extracts which includes 4 variety of Figs, Fresh Turmeric, Indian Gooseberry, White Sandalwood, Vetiver, Manjistha, Indian Costus Root among them. Just like Kumkumadi Oil, this is either made in Sesame Oil or Coconut Oil(Keera Thailam) Base.
What does it do? Nalpamaradi Oil is anti-fungal, antiseptic, antipruritic and has been used for mild skin allergies, eczema, herpes, scabies, dermatitis and fungal infections. Nalpamaradi is not just a beauty treatment, it is a skin nutrient oil that has so many medicinal properties. Traditionally it is used for baby massages to improve skin complexion. Nalpamaradi Thailam is a cult favourite for tan removal and skin brightening.
Notes & Precautions: Nalpamaradi Thailam is mostly applied, massaged and left on for 20 minutes or so and then wiped off with a warm cloth. The oil stains yellow due to the presence of Turmeric. Hence it is not recommended to leave-on overnight unless you are fine with yellow stains on your clothes and pillows.
Recommendations: Bipha Ayurveda Nalpamaradi Thailam, Vaidyaratnam Ayurvedic Nalpamaradi Kera Thailam, Kama Ayurveda Nalpamaradi Thailam and Blue Nectar Nalpamaradi Thailam 3. Shata Dhauta Ghrita This is Washed Ghee Infused with Turmeric Root Extract, hence yellow in color. Usually it is white in color.
What is it? Shata Dhauta Ghrita means 100 times washed ghee, which is what it is literally.
What does it contain? Just Cow Ghee
How it is made? Cow Ghee is washed by clean hands in a copper vessel hundred times (practically 20 to 50 times, until one gets tired!) to form a white fluffy whipped light buttery consistency. The ghee can also be washed with rose water and other herbal infused water for added skin care benefits. Sometimes it is also said that during the washing process, mantras are recited to boost its performance.
What does it do? The washed ghee is an intensely cooling light moisturizer that is not only used for skincare, but also serves as a skin healing ingredient. Shata Dhauta Ghrita is an excellent anti-aging cream to reduce wrinkles, acne scars, stretch marks, soothe sunburns and relieve inflammations. It is suitable for face, body, hand and feet as well. Dry, flaky and dehydrated skin types will love this as a face moisturizer.
Notes & Precautions: Shata Dhauta Ghrita can be done at home by anyone but its time consuming and improper washing can cause contamination faster and lead to shorter shelf life. Shata Dhauta Ghrita is self preserving and ideally it should last for 4 to 6 months depending on storage and weather conditions.

These are the most common ayurvedic skin care and hair care products known and used widely. There are tons of other ayurvedic recipes as well!
Moving onto the brands that make some of the authentic ayurvedic products. I will be putting them in two partsfirstly, the authentic ayurvedic manufacturers based at Kerala, the House of Indian Ayurveda. Secondly the brands that makes Ayurveda based Modernized Beauty Products. Authentic Ayurvedic Skin Care Products Companies Arya Vaidya Sala Kottakkal (Kerala) Vaidyarathnam (Kerala) Arogyaamrutham Vaidya Sala (Chennai) Khandige Organic (Bangalore based, offers a variety of pure ayurvedic wellness products)
All the above companies except Khandige have their own ayurvedic clinics/hospitals. Since these arent the commercial brands that are focused on marketing, these arentthe easily available online types’. If you go to Kerala in person you could very well find a lot more ayurvedic centres that make ayurvedic products.
Kottakal,Vaidyarathnam and Khandige products are the only ones that are currently available for purchase online on Amazon.
For beauty buyers looking for safe, gentle and efficient beauty treatments that are rooted in the ancient science of Ayurveda with a mix of modern science, you can look upon the following brands. The first part contains brands that Ive tried and loved. The second partthe rest of the popularly available brands. Best Ayurvedic Beauty Brands
Following are Ayurvedic Beauty Brands That I Trust. 1. Forest Essentials :
Forest Essentials is one of the leading players in the Luxury Ayurvedic Skin Care Products segment. I love their Mashobra Honey, Lemon and Rose Water Facial Cleanser for its gentle and soothing formulation. Their ubtans have also got some rave reviews. I did a complete review of the Best and Worsts of Forest Essentials Products that I tried. Do check it out for more details. 2. Kama Ayurveda:
I love Kama Ayurveda Products as much as I love Forest Essentials. But when it comes to authenticity, I trust Kama more. Kama is partnered with the authentic ayurvedic institution, Arya Vaidya Salai in Coimbatore to prepare their ayurvedic products. Kamas iconic Beauty treatments Nalpamaradi Skin Brightening Thailam & Bringadi Intensive Hair Treatment Oil are surely worth giving a shot. 3. Blue Nectar Ayurveda:
Blue Nectar prepares some of the authentic ayurvedic products including the Kumkumadi and Nalpamaradi Tailams. The brand promises that each of their products are curated by ayurvedic doctors and are prepared only in SL 316 Vessel as per Ayurved Texts with vital herbs and ingredients. I liked their Sandalwood Radiance Cream and the Honey Facial Cleanser among their Ayurveda based contemporary products. 4. Bipha Ayurveda:
Based at Kottayam, Kerala, Bipha Ayurveda is established by visionary ayurvedic physician K Pappy Vaidyan in 1929. Bipha Ayurveda has their own ayurvedic doctors whom you can consult for free. They make most of the traditional oils including Keshavardhini Oil, Eladi Thailam, Nalpamaradi, Kumkumadi and also traditional massage oils. Apart from that, they do make skincare and haircare products that combines Ayurveda and Modern Science. 5. Soultree:
Soultree is yet another Ayurvedic Skin Care Products Brand that I love. Their products are pretty amazing and results driven. Started by 3 crew members (one chemist, one 70-year-old Ayurvedic Doctor, and 1 driven entrepreneur), Soultree is BDIH Natural German certified. All their products are made in-house in batches using ayurvedic recipes. The brand is transparent about everything that goes inside their products. They also have an impressive coming of age makeup products. Do check out the Soultree Products Review post to find out my most favourites. 6. Just Herbs:
Just Herbs is another nice brand with ayurvedic roots in their formulations. I loved their Neem Orange Face Wash among all the Just Herbs Products that I tried. They use wild harvested ingredients across the country in all their products. Their latest launch, All in One Moisturzer BB Cream kind of product, The Herb Enriched Skin Tint is an instant hint among the young consumers. 7. Iraya:
Iraya (means from the Earth) prepares ayurvedic recipes blended with finest ingredients. The brand is well known for its Kumkumadi Range, Lepas and various Tailas. Iraya Neelbringadi Taila is one of our writers favourite. Iraya has a professional ayurvedic spa range used by therapists in leading spas.
The rest of the brands thats coming up in this post have the ayurvedic tag but are mass produced for the consumers. Patanjali: Patanjali is a big name in the industry. Due to various controversies on the poor quality of the products, I dont prefer this brand. Ive tried their famous Aloe Vera Gel and found it too artificial with fake color & fragrance. Lever Ayush: Launched recently by Hindustan Unilever. Lever Ayush is considered to be the competitor of Patanjali. Although I dont buy the Ayurveda tag, I found their products to be much better than Patanjali. The Anti Damage Fenugreek Shampoo and Anti Marks Turmeric Face Cream are well above average products. VLCC Ayurveda: VLCC basically falls in the herbal cosmetics category. Recently they launched a new subcategory VLCC Ayurveda focusing on ingredients like Haldi, Chandan, Neem, Tulsi. But the products are much similar to the normal range. Read my reviews on VLCC Ayurveda Face Washes , VLCC Ayurveda Multani Mitti Face Pack and VLCC Ayurveda Facial Kit . Biotique Botanicals: If you go to a supermarket and ask for a natural skin care brand, you are most likely to be directed towards this brand. Biotique has got mixed reviews among consumers for not disclosing their base Q.S while claiming their products to be ayurvedic propriety medicine! The Biotique Tan Removal Scrub is the only one among all the Biotique Products that I have liked and repurchased. Not because its ayurvedic but just for the amazing performance of the product. Khadi Natural: Khadi Natural says its an Ayurveda based brand. Most of their products have sulphates, parabens as such. The only products that I will recommend from Khadi Natural is their dry powder packs. Khadi Natural Neem Tulsi Face Pack is a good one to start with. Himalaya Herbals: Himalaya Herbals is yet another big name in the herbal cosmetics industry. Its a decade old brand, hence its widely popular all over. The products are affordable and worth giving a try for its efficacy. However they have paraben preservatives in most of their products. Read my reviews of Himalaya Herbals Products . Vicco: Vicco laboratories established in the 1950s is one of the oldest ayurvedic brands. Vicco is pretty popular for their Turmeric Skin Cream, which again has an undisclosed base Q.S. But still its an effective cream for acne and pimples. I also liked their newly launched Turmeric Cream in Foam Base . Roop Mantra: A revamped brand. Ive tried a few Roop Mantra Products and found most of them to be average. They have a wide range of affordable products including face pack, sunscreens, body lotion, pimple gels to name a few. Indulekha: Indulekha is popular for its Bringha Oil and Bhringraj Shampoo . The products contains a lot of ayurvedic herbs. It should be noted that the brand comes from the manufacturer Hindustan Unilever, who manufactures Ponds, Lux, Dove and other commerical brands. Herbodaya: A Tamil Nadu based brand. Although it looks like a replica of Indulekha, with a similar oil, Herbodaya does look promising with a couple of wellness products like Nilavembu, Thiriphala and Turmeric Powders.
And the list keeps on going. You could easily find more ayurvedic brands since its quite popular here. Feel free to add the brands you know in the comments section below.
If pure ayurvedic skin care products is what you are looking for, then I would recommend getting the ones from Kottakal or Vaidyaratnam. Because its authentic as well as super affordable compared to the so called Luxury Ayurveda Product Brands.
In conclusion, Ayurveda is not just about outer beauty, just like our blogs name its about both the inside and outside of a human being. For beginners, you could check out this wonderul bookAyurvedaIdiots Guidewritten by Sahara Rose Ketabi who is a certified ayurvedic practitioner herself.
