Yes the question is pretty much obvious and we all know how to wash our face ( if you don’t know then refer to our other blogs), but the real issue is what should you wash your face with?
One of the common questions patients ask is that should they wash their face with bar soap or liquid face wash.
Here is how you can choose the best facial cleanser for your skin:
Bar soaps are less expensive than liquid soap, and they usually lather very well. The problem is, they can disrupt your skin’s normal pH balance, because most bar soaps tend to be alkaline (higher pH) compared with your skin, which is normally slightly acidic (lower pH). Because an alkaline environment encourages the growth of acne-causing bacteria, using a bar soap can make breakouts worse. (more…)

Just when you are all ready for the short winter, oh! Its summer already! (the- seems- to -be -like never-ending- season).
Such is the climate of Dubai, sometimes you never come to know when spring and autumn came and left.
Varying seasons, sandy winds, and long hours spent in the air conditioned places (which is like almost all indoor places) can wreak havoc with the skin of your face and leave it very difficult to take care of.
Here are few handy hints that I suggest if you are living or planning to live in Dubai (which is a great place, no doubt!)
When you know that it’s time to welcome the summer, you would want to have a swim or a sunbathe even though the weather gets hotter and hotter, then you enter an air conditioned room, well, all these changes can suck all the moisture from your skin and leave it torn, weary, or in some cases your skin will excrete extreme oil that you will feel like an oil factory (that’s what everyone called me back in college). So it is very important to take care of your skin and a facial or a good product, regardless of skin type is specially recommended by dermatologists and skin experts. You have to exfoliate at least twice a weekly and use hydrating products. If you are too busy to make it to an expert, take a bash at treating yourself. (more…)

“Mom how do I look?”
“Sweety! what’s that on your cheeks?”
You rush to a mirror and notice a large red patch on your skin all because of that makeup you recently purchased from a store. Now the option you have is to throw that makeup away (money wasted) and treat that horrible red patch as soon as possible.
Makeup – everything from eyeliners to mascara, blushes to lipsticks- can help you feel on top of your game but keep in mind they are all not the same although we always have a wide variety and choices as far as our eyes can reach but don’t let each product blind you because they can also cause irritated skin, watery eyes, swelling and infection or any other allergic reactions.

Food is one of the great pleasures of life. The benefits of a healthy diet are obvious when trying to watch one’s weight or cholesterol level, but what we eat also greatly influences the condition of our healthy-looking hair, making diet and hair linked to one another. Hair is a record of one’s diet and nutrition, and that means that what we are not eating can show up, too, in our hair.
As protein is one of hair’s key building blocks, insufficient protein in one’s diet can lead to a decrease in hair’s diameter, making hair less healthy-looking and thick. In addition, crash dieting can result in hair loss, as hair’s growth cycle can be impacted, causing a higher than normal number of hair follicles to shed their hair fibers.
The conclusion? Diet and hair are linked. If you want healthy-looking hair and beautiful hair, eat healthy foods, don’t crash diet, and get plenty of protein. EAT HEALTHY, STAY HEALTHY !

I would love to take shower in the rain. No, not because there is no water supply at my home but because rain has its own natural beauty and instead of enjoying it we hide under the roofs. Most of us fail to avail this natural blessing because we don’t want to end up looking as if we are going to star in a horror movie. Mascara running down our face , makeup smudged, clothes wet, hair dirty, are the factors that we face when we try to go in snow, walk in windy streets or simply just to enjoy the rain. Looking good in soggy conditions takes more effort. Here’s how you can shield your looks against these ruiners.
Switch to waterproof mascara and liner. If it’s windy or misty, you’re bound to get some moisture on your face, and you don’t want to show up at a meeting of for a date with dried rivulets of eye makeup on your cheeks. Looking out for good products is essential.
Carry tissues to dry your face and hair if they get wet. If you can’t get to a mirror, dab and blot-don’t wipe your face or you will end up with makeup streaks.
Use less hair product. Even with an umbrella, the ends of your hair may get damp, and excess product will weight it down even more, making you look like a wet puppy. Carry a travel-size aerosol hairspray in your bag for quick touch-ups when you get inside. Avoid mist hairsprays, which deposit more liquid and can make your hair limp in high humidity.
For the best protection from rain and wind, you need more than an umbrella. Try using a lightweight scarf to protect your hair and face- you won’t have to worry about losing a hat, and your hairdo won’t get mashed.
Follow these tips and say hello to the beauty of nature.
