A basic skin care routine which both men and women can use comprises of sun protection, hydration, exfoliation. A dermatologist will always prescribe you a sunscreen apt for your skin type and tone, and a good moisturiser which doesn’t leave your skin dry or oily. Nowadays’ you get oral sunscreen protection, which help you to fight sun damage from within. Exfoliation doesn’t really mean scrubbing. Exfoliation means getting rid of your excess oil or melanin, which causes pigmentation depending on the type of skin.

Dermal Fillers: Stress, pollution, smoking, alcohol and our natural ageing process cause loss of Hyaluronic Acid (HA), which is a ground substance of our skin. A good HA filler can get rid of that tired look and leave your skin hydrated and rejuvenated in the long run. It can be done to revive your under eye dark circles, loss of volume in the cheeks and lip rejuvenation.
