Having an extensive skin care routine was made desirable not only by beauty brands, but by consumer-driven trends. However, having a whole arsenal of cleansers, toners, exfoliators, serums, moisturizers, face oils and more can overload the skin, causing sensitivity and irritation. In the long term, too many high-strength active ingredients can also damage the skin barrier and make it more difficult to treat concerns like wrinkles, hyperpigmentation and more.
Skin Minimalism is an extension of Skin Mindfulness, it's all about accepting yourself and being mindful of what you apply on your skin. This will surely go a long way in helping our skin heal, mind relax and will surely be another step towards choosing a sustainable lifestyle.
What is Collagen?Collagen is the most abundant protein in the human body, and the main component of connective tissue–the scaffolding of bones, tendons, ligaments, cartilage, and skin upon which the body is built. As its name implies, connective tissue holds all the parts of the body in place, like glue. Collagen is particularly important in skin, but it is also abundant in muscles, blood vessels, eyeballs, the gut, intervertebral discs, and the dentin of teeth. SourceCollagen in combination with elastin and keratin (which is a protein) gives skin its strength and elasticity. Gram for gram, the collagen in skin is stronger than steel. Combination with elastin, collagen also gives skin its flexibility, the ability to stretch and move and then bounce back into shape.Collagen is also the mesh on which wounds repair, this is the body’s ability to generate new skin, after trauma or injury....Continue Reading
Skin fasting, a rising trend over the past few years, and your skin's very own version of a detox cleanse.All we need is a reset button when it comes to health and well-being, especially when we don't not feel fine! When it comes to skin care, as much as one might love their elaborate 10-step skincare regimen, sometimes all we need to do is backdial and take a minimalistic approach to our skin. This is the philosophy behind Skin Fasting/Skin Minimalism!What Is Skin Fasting?Skin fasting is taking a break from all of your current skincare products or routine to give your skin time to breathe, rest, and reset. https://cdn.shopaccino.com/goskinpositive/images/brooke-cagle-nnje121ibi-unsplash-594085.jpghttps://cdn.shopaccino.com/goskinpositive/images/brooke-cagle-nnje121ibi-unsplash-594085.jpgThe term was first coined by Japanese brand Mirai Clinical, which describes skin fasting as a way to normalize the secretion of natural oils and support the natural rejuvenation process. The concept comes from the traditional idea of fasting that allows healing....Continue Reading
If you get hormonal acne on a monthly basis, it’s time we start talking about cycle syncing and your skincare.In my practice, I have come across many women tormented by monthly breakouts along with bloating, cravings, and the works. Whether it’s one painful pimple on your chin or a whole batch of pimples (sometimes noticing for the first time in life), the first step to finding a root cause is to understand and work with your menstrual cycle, which is also called cycle syncing. Anyone who menstruates experiences a 28-day cycle that keeps their hormones in flux. During that time, our bodies go through different phases in which the symptoms shift and vary, and so does our skin. Instead of keeping the same skincare routine during that time, I suggest listening to your body and responding to its needs....Continue Reading
Healthy skin is attributed to well hydrated skin which is critical for good barrier function of the stratum corneum, the outermost layer of the skin. Moisturisers are thus key to retain or increase the level of moisture in the skin. Hydrated skin is more elastic, thus reducing the appearance of wrinkles, and is less prone to inflammation and itchiness. If you have been looking to add a moisturiser to your skincare routine, you are probably aware of the various hydrating ingredients present in moisturisers, but like many, don’t know how they work. One such ingredient is squalane, a popular hydrant found in many moisturisers and sworn by many big skincare brands. What is squalane?Squalane is a hydrating oil that is the hydrogenated form of squalene, a polysaturated hydrocarbon that is produced by the skin and found in many plant species as well....Continue Reading
Know the unknown:Bakuchiol, known to the scientific community as Psoralea corylifolia, is a herb endemic to Asian countries such as India, and the Himalayan regions of Pakistan and China. Until recently, whence it has been formulated to produce substances that reduce skin wrinkles, it was widely used in Ayurveda and other Eastern medicine.Bakuchiol is grabbing the spotlight as its natural plant-derived roots seem a pleasant alternative to consumers otherwise using a chemical preparation called retinol, or its analogs, known to bring, with it, side effects like peeling, dryness, or redness. Retinol is a chemical based on vitamin-A helping with the turnover of skin cells, stimulating collagen synthesis for better skin texture with more smoothness and radiance. This increased cell turnover in the skin is even speculated to be the primary cause of irritation, photosensitivity, hyperpigmentation, and other side effects.How does it work on my skin? Experts suggest that Bakuchiol triggers genetic pathways similar to retinoids to enhance the production of collagen, thereby controlling the aging of the skin in a natural yet effective manner. Bakuchiol’s less triggering nature is often attributed to its quality of renewing collagen which may help in the enhancement of skin texture and skin tone....Continue Reading

Let’s go beyond Acne positivity As the mirror reflects a new zit or acne in the morning, we surely wish to go back to bed, face down. Then there are few of us, who take matters into our own hands and try out acids, scrubs, peels! There’s nothing many of us won’t do to get rid of a new breakout, whether that’s a cluster of red, inflamed bumps or painful, under-the-skin zit. And that’s totally understandable, as we’ve been influenced by years of clear-skinned people crediting drying benzoyl peroxide- and salicylic acid-spiked skincare products, not to mention commercials featuring celebrities talking about how their so-called “bad” skin impacted their self-esteem....Continue Reading
