Best Ways To Deal With Common Skin Problems - Parlor in Lajpat Nagar & Malviya Nagar

 Tiny pimple 
Tiny pimple marks and acnes tarnishing your appearance simply make you overindulge in all sorts of creams, lotions and treatments available in the market. A late night cocktail party, a few sleepless nights, days of stress at work, and to top it all- ageing, contribute to such skin problems. But, did you know that constant worrying about your skin problems can in fact multiply them? Relax! We have solutions for four common skin problems that bug you the most. Read on to know more.

Dark circles and puffiness
A very hectic routine and lack of sleep can often lead to dark circles and puffiness around the eyes. Cutting down on your alcohol and salt intake will make them less prominent. Massaging refrigerated eye-gel around the eyes in gentle circular motions before going to bed, can be a great treatment option. You can place refrigerated green tea bags on your eyes for about 15 minutes everyday. This can also serve as a beneficial treatment option for puffy eyes.

Brown spots
Blemishes on face are one of the common signs of sun damage or ageing. Simply apply lemon juice mixed with honey and a pinch of turmeric on your face. Leave it for 15 minutes before washing it off. Do not expect dramatic results overnight. But, if it is a problem that has persisted for a long time, do consult your dermatologist. They will surely prescribe you some acid peels, products with hydroquinone or kojic acid.

Dry, peeling skin
Having itchy and parched skin throughout the year can be a sign of ageing, eczema or dermatitis. It can be caused by a number of things like allergies to food or certain chemicals. While you might be resorting to heavy lotions, it is more beneficial to go for oils such as olive, grapeseed, apricot, rosehip and pomegranate, which can percolate your skin easily. Keep a close watch on things that particularly are irritating for your skin, and stay away from them.

Growing pores
If you notice your skin pores getting bigger, well they may be ringing the warning bell for future wrinkles. They are caused when the collagen walls of your skin start breaking down. The best solution is to keep your skin taut by using skin serums and peptide creams. Regular exfoliation also makes your skin look radiant.
Make sure you exercise regularly and eat a balanced diet, apart from keeping in mind our easy tips.
