Ways to get a flawless complexion!

The beauty of your skin gets marred by thepigmentation marks and many of the ladies around can be seen trying out various methods of getting rid of the same.

So here we have got for you some expert advice, which will surely help a lot. As per cosmetic physician Dr Jamuna Pai, "Our skin gets its pigment from melanin that is made by the body and determines the color of your skin, hair and eyes. An over-production of melanin shows up as brown patches and spots."

Explaining the main reasons for hyper-pigmentation, experts state the following reasons:
1. Sun damage - Brown spots or dark patches appear from too much melanin being made and coming to the skin surface as a protective mechanism.

2. Hormonal changes - Pregnancy, menopause and sometimes oral contraceptive pills can cause pigmentation.

3. Injury PIH (post inflammatory hyper-pigmentation) - The body's response to injury is inflammation which triggers melanin production and the result are brown spots and patches. Some examples of PIH are acne scars, insect bites, cuts or abrasion, post laser treatments, post peels, fixed drug reaction.

Treating it
Senior cosmetic surgeon Dr Mohan Thomas suggests, "Daily skin cleansing is essential so, wash your face at least twice a day using oil and alcohol-free formulas. Exfoliate three times per week; apply the exfoliator in circular motions to all affected areas, normally the nose, forehead and chin. The exfoliation encourages a newer, smoother skin surface by helping to unclog pores, prevent further breakouts and diminish blemishes and pigmentation spots."

Tips to be followed: 
1. Avoid exposure to direct sunlight between 9am-4pm.

2. Apply generous amounts of sunscreen at an interval of three to four hours.

3. Take nutritional supplements of Vitamin C and anti-oxidants.

4. Keep yourself hydrated

Learn what your handwriting says about you!

Every action speaks louder than words so does the handwriting of yours! Neat, complex, fussy, sophisticated, running letters or clumsy compilations, every written word entails something about you. Let’s have a look at some quickies which can trace out the real you through how you write:

1. Neat and Clean: If you are one of them who have always been complimented due to neat and clean notes, then it says that you are quite focused regarding issues of life rather than the one who writes smudgy.

2. Space says a lot: Handwriting analysis depends upon the way you mark curves and stretches of written alphabets and even on the space used between words speak a lot. Huge spaces between words say that the person needs more space in life and relationships.

3. Small and big spill beans about you: Letters used, whether small or huge also denotes your desires to get established in life. Those who write in small letters are more detail oriented, sharp minded and quick learners. Those who write big letters are willing to show off and make a mark of them in public.

4. Cursive writers: Cursive writing speaks open mindedness and flexibility towards other’s ideas and disconnected writing denotes the virtue of being unconventional and innovations.

5. Light V/S Pressurized writing: Those who write with pressure are possessive and wish to do something unique and outstanding in life. Light writers are more creative.

Writing speaks a lot about one’s personality and its all on how one writes rather than what is written.
