Kaya’s Holi Therapy 2022

It’s the most colourful time of the year with the celebrations of Holi right around the corner! We all love the splash of gulaal, the friendly attacks of water guns and balloons, the collective giggles when you transform into someone unrecognisable in the aftermath. 

However, there is one truth that weighs heavy on us when all of this is over — how do we get our skin healthy and back to normal? 

Kaya brings to you the most efficient solution for post-Holi skincare — #TheHoliTherapy with the Ultimate Skin Reclaim Package. 

This package consists of some tried and tested Holi skincare tips and helps detox, exfoliate, hydrate, and rejuvenate the skin with the best post-Holi skincare services to tackle every skin concern step-by-step. Here’s what you can expect: 

Step 1: Detox and Hydrate with an Aqua Facial

To begin, we detox and hydrate the skin using advanced Aqua therapy. This is a face smoothing treatment that utilises high-grade water jet technology infused with salicylic peel that seeps deep into the skin to cleanse, exfoliate, hydrate, and even fight acne with excellent capabilities.

Step 2: Q-Switch Laser Tan Removal

Now that we’ve worked to detox and hydrate our skin, we aim at getting rid of the tan and pigmentation. 

Kaya’s Q-Switch is a superior technology that targets all types of pigmentation of varying intensity - from superficial to deep rooted such as uneven skin tone, patchy skin, and dark spots. 

It works by using a beam of light that penetrates the melanin or brown pigment in the skin. 

The surrounding skin remains unaffected. The procedure is absolutely safe, pain free, requires minimal time with no downtime, and results are achieved within just 6-8 sessions. It is advised to use sunscreen regularly in order to avoid further pigmentation.

Step 3: Nourish and Restore with a Curated Skincare Range

The final step is to nurture your skin and keep it that way on a daily basis with these essential products:

  • Sensitive Cleanser: Start by routinely washing your face when you wake up and before you go to bed. Kaya’s Face Cleanser for Sensitive Skin is specially formulated to be gentle on the skin without causing dryness or irritation. It contains natural fatty acids and proteins that help balance the pH of your skin, leaving it soft, supple, and hydrated. 
  • Toner: Using a toner on your skin has multiple benefits such as cleaning and reducing the appearance of pores and blemishes, intercepting pigmentation, and tightening/firming the skin. The Kaya Acne-Free Purifying Toner is a delicate blend of calming botanicals such as cucumber and witch hazel. A touch of Niacinamide formulation evens out the skin tone and minimises pores, while cucumber and witch hazel rid you of impurities and give your skin a radiant glow. Mandelic Acid, a mild AHA, helps exfoliate dead cells from the surface of the skin and helps reveal brighter and smoother skin.
  • Moisturiser: Kaya’s Super Hydrator is built to create a moisture lock on your skin that gives you a hydration boost of up to 80% that lasts all day long. It keeps your skin soft, supple, and healthy and strengthens your skin by enhancing its barriers. 
  • Sunscreen: It’s important to protect the skin from UV damage caused by sun rays. The Kaya Youth Protect Sunscreen SPF 50 serves a dual role of UV protection and hydration. With a high SPF of 50 and non-greasy texture, it creates a protective layer against sun damage to prevent premature ageing while boosting cell regeneration and oxygenation.
  • Hydraboost Night SerumMask: When everything is done, call it a day with the Intense Hydra Boost Night Serum that gives you brighter, tighter, and softer skin. Infused with Rose extracts, Glycerin, and Hyaluronic Acid, this serum acts like natural collagen by forming a protective layer and helps make the skin tight. Deep moisturisation contributes to improved skin texture, making it soft and supple. It acts like your own personal, face smoothing treatment at home.

Everything You Need To Know About Oily Skin

The medical term for oily skin is seborrhoea and is caused by the excess production of oil. The usual reason for this is genetics or hormones. Androgen is a hormone that is present in both males and females, and it is responsible for the regulation of the oil generated. A higher amount of androgen leads to more oil being produced, thus, causing the skin to become oily. Also, the heat makes you sweat which in turn leads to more oil being produced, since summer is right around the corner you need to protect your skin, and the best way to do this is to arm yourself with knowledge on oily skin. Here are a few things you should know about oily skin, and how to take care of it.

What Is Oily Skin

The sebaceous gland produces sebum to keep the skin moisturised and nourished. It protects your skin from getting dry and flaky, and removes the dead skin cells to keep your skin looking fresh and healthy. But when the sebum is produced beyond the required amount, it causes the skin to get oily. If your face feels greasy and sticky all over then it’s safe to say you fall in the oily skin category. The oil clogs your pores and doesn’t allow your skin to be healthy, which leads to other problems.

How Does Oily Skin Affect Your Face

The most common effects of an oily face are breakouts. This happens because instead of getting rid of the impurities and dead skin cells, the excess oil clogs your pores and then mixes it with the bacteria and impurities which lead to pimples getting formed. Along with acne, oily skin causes blackheads and whiteheads to form on your skin regularly. Therefore it’s safe to say that oily skin causes issues with your facial skin and it is necessary to address these issues before they become worse.

How To Keep Your Skin Healthy

Experts at kaya suggest that you don’t try to use harsh products to get rid of the oil, as it can cause your skin to become rough and won’t solve the problem. It is important to use products which don’t clog your pores. The right way to care for oily skin is the 3 step method of Kaya Skin Health Routine that is formulated and tested by expert dermatologists.

Cleanse Your Face

It is necessary to purify your skin by removing the impurities, which is exactly what Kaya Soothing Cleansing Gel does. It is a soap free formula which works gently on your skin. This cleansing gel contains Zinc Lactate that helps reduce the excess production of sebum. Use this product by applying on a wet face and then rinse it thoroughly, twice a day for best results.

Apply A Toner

An oily skin requires you to clean your pores by using the Kaya Daily Pore Minimizing Toner. Oily skin, causes the pores to expand and that’s how the dirt gets in, but this toner minimizes the pores so this problem doesn’t occur. It also contains cucumber extract which refreshes the skin and doesn’t let it get dry, thus giving you a smooth skin. Apply the pore minimizing toner with a cotton pad, after using the cleanser.

Use A Sunscreen

Protection against the sun is a must for any skin type. The Kaya Daily Use Sunscreen SPF 30 contains PA++++ which shields your skin against the harmful UVA-UVB rays. It doesn’t contain PABA which is known to cause allergies, rashes and other problems. This sunscreen is a lightweight, non-greasy formula which is perfect for oily skin. Use the sunscreen after applying the toner in the morning before stepping out. To know more about oily skin, read What all to avoid when you have oily skin.

Best Laser Hair Removal Technology For Indian Skin Type

Body hair is a sensitive subject to most people, as it makes you feel self conscious. But this issue is of the past due to the advances made in technology. Now there are laser hair removal technologies which give you a smooth, hair free skin. However, most people are misinformed about the laser hair removal technology and that is why they don’t opt for this solution. Read further, to understand the truth behind it.

Misconceptions About Laser Hair Removal Technology

It Is Painful

A common belief is that laser hair removal is painful, and while it is true that it does cause some discomfort, it isn’t painful like it has been advertised to be. It actually hurts less than other hair removal methods like waxing.

You Are Exposed To Harmful Radiation

People have become sceptical about laser hair removal because they think that it exposes you to harmful radiation. But the FDA approved technologies do not harm your skin in any way, as they don’t emit radiation.

It Isn’t Safe

The thought of safety should always come first on your mind before exposing your skin to anything, and laser hair removal that is done by qualified dermatologists is safe and helpful.

It’s Expensive

Another misconception is that laser hair removal is expensive. But, the cost of getting rid of your body hair in one go actually saves your money by cutting the monthly expenditure on other hair removal methods for the rest of your life.

Best Hair Removal Technology For Indian Skin

The most important thing to remember before getting your body hair lasered is to go to a certified dermatologist and laser your hair only through an FDA approved method like Kaya Hair Free Gentle Touch. The dermatologists at Kaya have specifically made it safe for Indian skin type. There are certified laser therapists who are supervised by the dermatologists, and they go through a thorough process where they understand your skin type and hair growth. Then they test the laser hair removal method on a small area on your skin before customising the service as per your needs, to give you soft and hair free skin.

Everything You Need To Know About Dry Skin Type

The first step in solving any problem is to understand everything about it, and that’s what we are going to do here for everyone who has dry skin. The medical term for it is xeroderma, and if you have dry skin then you already know it because there can be no doubt when you touch your face and your skin feels rough and flaky. Dry skin can be a result of genetics where the sebaceous gland doesn’t produce enough sebum or oily substance that keeps your skin moisturised, or usually it’s because of external factors like the environment or the chemicals in the products you use. Not only does dry skin make your skin look scaly and rough, but it also causes other issues.

How Does Dry Skin Affect Your Face

Having dry skin means your skin doesn’t get the moisture and nutrients it requires to be healthy. Besides making your face look dull and lifeless, dry skin is known to age your skin prematurely. This is because the sebum that is present to keep the face nourished and hydrated is not produced in sufficient quantity. Your skin ends up losing its elasticity and you can see fine lines and wrinkles forming. Another problem that people with this skin type experience is pigmentation and discolouration. Dark spots are easily formed, making your skin look uneven.

How To Treat Dry Skin

Dermatologists at Kaya suggest that you don’t use any product without making sure it’s suitable for your specific skin type. Here are some tips on what you should do to help deal with dry skin.

No Hot Showers

When your skin is dry, it means it doesn’t have the moisture it requires, and having a shower with hot water makes the condition worse. It steals the natural oils from your skin making it even drier. It is advised that you don’t unnecessarily expose your skin to hot water for too long.

Remove The Impurities From Your Skin

Exfoliating is important to get rid of the dead skin so that new skin can grow. But, with dry skin its necessary to not over exfoliate and worsen the condition. Kaya Creamy Exfoliating Rinse is a facewash for dry skin which contains antioxidants that help get rid of the impurities from your skin and makes your skin soft. The derma beads gently exfoliate and make your skin look even; it also protects your skin against premature aging.

Protect Your Skin

All skin types require a regular use of sunscreen, but with dry skin it’s even more important. The Kaya Daily Moisturiser Sunscreen SPF 30 hydrates your skin and protects it from the harmful UVA-UVB rays which are one of the main causes of wrinkles and lines. This sunscreen prevents tanning, and is tested and formulated by expert dermatologists.

Keep Your Skin Moisturised

The obvious solution to dry skin is to moisturise it externally so that your skin can get what it needs. Kaya White Protect Body Lotion is a 3 in 1 formula that evens your skin tone, hydrates it and protects it from the sun to prevent any further pigmentation issues. Kaya dermatologists recommend you make this a part of your daily morning routine. You can use Kaya Purifying Nourisher if you have an acne prone skin to moisturise your skin. This moisturiser is a non-greasy formula which gets absorbed easily by your skin and makes it soft and supple.

You can also try the Kaya Signature Face Therapy – Ultra Rejuve facial. It cleanses and exfoliates the skin. Also, the natural Licorice and Arbutin extracts give radiance to your face. The treatment ends with a luxurious Cocoa mask that hydrates your skin and makes it look bright and refreshed!

Everything You Need To Know About Combination Skin Type

Dry skin in some areas and oily skin in the others is what is known as a combination skin type. It is a very common skin type and is usually the result of your hormones or genetics. The sebaceous gland which is responsible for producing the oil in order to moisturise and nourish your skin is located in different areas depending on your genes. This gland is sometimes concentrated in certain areas of your face, making your skin oily, and is not located in other areas which make the skin there dry. Combination skin care can be complex as the skin needs a balance of both dry and oily to be healthy and to glow.

Keep reading to know more about combination skin type and how to manage it.

What Is Combination Skin

As we have established, a combination skin type it is a mixture of both dry and oily skin. The oil is formed because of the sebum produced by your body to nourish the skin. Typically in a combination skin type, your T-zone which comprises of your forehead, nose and chin is oily, which means more sebum  is being produced there, while the rest of your face is dry, which is because of not enough production of sebum. A combination skin type comes with a lot of complications as they are essentially two different skin types merged in one.

How Does Combination Skin Affect Your Face

A combination skin is neither dry nor oily, which makes it difficult to deal with. Enlarged pores are a result of this skin type, which cause breakouts and pigmentation issues. Another problem is that the skin under the oil is also dry and rough, and usually people use products meant for oily skin which further steals the moisture from an already dry skin. This can cause your skin to age prematurely, and form fine lines and wrinkles.

How To Keep Your Skin Healthy

The first thing to remember is to not use products specifically made for either dry or oily skin, as it will cause the condition to worsen. What you need is the right amount of moisture and exfoliation which the Kaya Youth Defence Kit gives you. It is created by professional dermatologists, who understand the problem and give you best products for combination skin type. This kit has a 3 step approach which gives your skin what it needs.

Exfoliate Your Skin

A combination skin type needs to be gently exfoliated to remove the dead skin cells, without drying the skin. Kaya Creamy Exfoliating Rinse does just that with the help of micro beads. It is a facewash which smoothens your skin, and makes it look soft and fresh. The Purple Orchid and Japanese Cherry extract in this product targets any pigmentation, making your skin look even.

Use A Toner

It is necessary to detox your skin with a toner like Kaya Refining Mist. It removes the impurities from your skin and tightens the pores, thus preventing any breakouts. This toner balances the natural pH level of your skin, which gives you a natural glow making your skin healthy.

Rejuvenate Your Skin

In order to restore lost moisture to your skin, try the Kaya Hydrate And Restore Facial. This therapy uses a unique hydra-exfoliation process that unveils a fresh new layer. This is followed by the intense moisturization of Hydra Nourishing Massage Cream which is teamed with the smoothening effect of the Enzymatic wax which helps regenerate the cells as well as improves skin’s condition. The facial ends with the Antox Vit-C Serum and the fresh Rehydrating Mask that brings back a boost of hydration to even the most dehydrated skin giving you supple and glowing skin!

When Is The Right Time To Opt For A Hair Transplant?

If you have noticed more than the usual hair on your comb, chances are that you have fallen prey to hair loss. Hair transplant is a good and lasting solution to this problem. However, you might think as to when would be the right time to opt for a hair transplant and if that is the case, here lies your answer.

Losing hair can affect a person in a negative manner since it not only changes the way you look but also has an effect on your confidence. If you are experiencing excessive hair loss at a very young age, you might want to consider hair transplant as an option. Men experience hair loss between the ages of 18 to 35. Hair loss can be caused by various reasons like genetic make-up, improper diet, pollution, stress as well as exposure to harmful chemicals. A receding hairline will always come between you and confidence!

Hair goes through three phases of growth, which are the anagen, catagen and telogen phases. Anagen is the growing phase and it lasts anywhere between 2 to 7 years. Catagen is the transitional phase wherein the size of the hair follicle decreases. Finally is the telogen phase, which is basically the resting phase when some of the old hair is resting and the new hair begins to grow. Your hair undergoes these phases at the same time and depending on the phase, the length of the hair is determined.

Men experience hair loss in different stages. It begins with a noticeable receding hairline and thinning on the crown. This is followed by the hairline being pushed further behind. Finally, the hair continues to become thinner and finer and shorter and making a shape that resembling a ‘U’ shape also known as ‘horseshoe’ shape. This is basically hair left around the sides and back of the head.

This is where Kaya Hair Restore Expert Transplant Solutions comes to your rescue. Kaya uses Follicular Unit Extraction method which is a non-surgical, minimally invasive method. This involves taking hair grafts from a healthy donor area in one’s head to the area of baldness. As each hair strand is individually transplanted, this procedure gives more accuracy and better results. The results will be a growth of natural looking hair that is voluminous and strong, with adequate post care.

Go ahead and book an appointment with Kaya today so that we can better guide you with the right treatment for your needs. An in person meeting with our expert dermato- surgeons will help you determine better as to when would be the right time to opt for a hair transplant.

How To Prepare For Your Laser Hair Removal Session

Opting for Kaya Hair Free Gentle Touch - Permanent Laser Hair Reduction is a step in the right direction if you do not want to be tied down by the weight of having to juggle your waxing appointments and coordinating your outfit accordingly. The most important thing to remember is to make sure you’re undergoing the treatment at a safe place that you can trust. With Kaya, you’re in absolutely safe hands. Here are a few precautions that you’ll have to take before your laser hair removal session.

Don’t wax, pluck or thread

This is the most important precaution to take before your session. Avoid waxing, plucking, threading or electrolysis for hair at least for a month before your session. These methods interfere with the treatment since they disturb the hair follicle. Although you might feel the urge to pluck a stray hair that catches your eye, its best to let it be.

Stay out of the sun

It is best to avoid too much exposure to the sun before the treatment, since sun-burnt skin can be quite sensitive. It is a good practice to avoid exposure to the sun for six weeks prior and post the treatment.

Skin care regimen

Certain skin care products could cause irritation to the skin, especially anti-ageing products that contain acids. Hence, it is best to avoid such products prior to and after your session, at least for a while.

Lastly, make sure you follow all the instructions that the technician gives you. At Kaya, you’re in trusted hands since Kaya offers services supervised by dermatologists who make sure that you receive a treatment that is customized to suit your skin and hair type.

How to Get Rid of Dry and Flaky Skin in Winter

For most women, winters are accompanied by the dreaded dry skin. Though it is not a serious health condition, it causes quite a lot of discomfort. Flaking, itching, irritation and embarrassment are some of the serious inconveniences caused due to dry skin. This skin condition can be easily treated with home remedies or with the help of a dermatologist. Before help can be provided it is important to understand what causes dry or flaky skin.

What Causes Flaky and Dry Skin?

Other than chronic skin conditions, your skin can be dry due to the factors you are exposed to in your surrounding environment. These factors strip your skin of its natural moisture. Dry, pressurized or heated indoor air from the furnace can cause your skin to become dry. Other than this, even dry and cold outside air can cause dry skin, especially when it’s windy. Another probable cause for flaky skin is improper skin care. Using soaps which are too strong or taking long hot baths can damage the top layer of your skin. This leads to the loss of natural moisture, making your skin vulnerable. To avoid this, it is advised to use gentle, non-foaming facial cleansers, and to immediately apply moisturizer after washing your face or taking a shower. In addition to applying moisturizer, you can also opt for products that contain glycerin or petroleum jelly. If you wish to tackle your dry skin issues, keep in mind to stay well hydrated. Lack of hydration can leave your skin feeling parched. To increase your hydration levels, you can add watery fruits and vegetables to your diet. 

Home Remedies for Flaky and Dry Skin

Dry and flaky skin can be easily treated using ingredients which can be found in your kitchen.  Following are Some Home Remedies that will help to relieve some of the discomfort caused due to dry and flaky Skin

  • Bakin Soda
  • Oatmeal
  • Honey
  • Coconut Oil

Why is it Necessary to Consult a Dermatologist for Dry and Flaky skin?

In some cases, these home remedies may not help in improving the condition of your skin. To find out if there are any other underlying factors affecting your skin, it is important to consult a dermatologist. There are possibilities you might have conditions which require individual treatments such as eczema or psoriasis. These conditions require treatments as well as possible prescribed medication. 

Eczema:

It is an autoimmune condition, as believed by some researchers, it may be related to hay fever and asthma. The appearance of this condition is usually dry and flaky patches which can be found around the elbows, knees, ankles and wrists. Sometimes they can also be noticed on the face, especially around the eyes and on your eyelids. To help treat eczema it is necessary to use ointments prescribed by the doctor as it cannot be treated using regular moisturizers. In some cases the treatment of this condition may be harder and may require antibiotics, antihistamines etc. to help relieve the itching. 

Psoriasis:

It is a chronic skin condition which is characterized by red and irritated skin which is covered with silvery flaky scales. To relieve the symptoms of psoriasis, ointments or creams which contain corticosteroids, salicylic acid, or retinoids can be used. In case of this skin condition, the underlying condition is permanent. It has been shown that daily exposure to sunlight or other sources of ultraviolet rays can help to reduce the appearance of these lesions.

Chemical Peels: Know all about it

All of us desire to have smooth skin, rather we want to go back in time and undo the damage caused to the skin. You need not fret as there is a way to get rid of all signs of aging: it is chemical peeling.

Chemical peels are performed under the care of a trained expert, mostly a dermatologist. It can be done on face, hands, chest and neck. It is also used to treat acne, severe discoloration of skin, age spots, dull complexion and skin damaged due to sun.

To exfoliate and remove the top layer of the skin, a chemical peel is applied. It makes way for less wrinkled, smoother and regenerated skin. For couple of days your skin will be sensitive to sun.

There are three types of chemical peels:

Superficial peel: To exfoliate, Alpha-hydroxy acid or another mild acid is used to penetrate through only the outer layer of the skin. The treatment is used to enhance the appearance of insignificant skin discoloration and rough skin as well as to renew the face, neck, chest or hands.

Medium peel: To remove the damaged middle layers of the skin, glycolic or trichloroacetic acid is used. The therapy is used to reduce age spots, fine lines, wrinkles, freckles and mild skin discoloration.

Deep peel: To remove shallow scars, tricholoracetic acid or phenol is used to remove damaged skin cells. You will see a remarkable enhancement in skin appearance. The therapy is just allowed once only on face.

You might face a stinging sensation and mild pain during chemical peel. Though Alpha-hydroxy, glycolic, lactic or fruit acids are gentle on skin, they might cause mild stinging.

For stronger peeling, trichloroacetic acids are used to remove wrinkles, shallow scars and pigmentation issues. Phenol is the strongest of all and helps reducing deep lines and wrinkles on the face. They sting more than milder acids. After the treatment you will have some redness, swelling and irritation but the post care will help you to reduce these effects. Also, the dermatologist will suggest some medicines that will help alleviate the problems post the treatment.

Depending on the peel, your skin will require time to heal. Superficial peels require one to seven days to heal. Medium peels require seven to fourteen days to heal where as deep peels will require fourteen to twenty-one days to heal. You will have to avoid sun for couple of months as your skin will be sensitive to the harsh sun rays.

Fair skinned individuals see better results of chemical peel. If you are pregnant or just had a baby it is not advisable to opt for this treatment. Also if you have psoriasis, eczema, dermatitis or rosacea, stay away from chemical peeling. It is advisable to meet a skin expert before you opt for a chemical peel.

How to prevent age spots

Old age spots are generally not harmful in any way, so there is no therapeutic reason as such to remove them. But since they can convey a person’s age, many women and men like to get rid of them for cosmetic reasons, to look young and beautiful.  

Causes of age spots

Age spots are caused by extra production of melanin. They may also be caused by skin aging, sun exposure, or other forms of ultraviolet light exposure, such as tanning beds. You are most likely to have age spots on the areas of your skin that receive the most sun exposure, including:

  • your face
  • the back of your hands
  • your shoulders
  • your forearms

  Symptoms of age spots

Age spots:

  • vary from light brown to black in colour
  • have the same smoothness as the rest of your skin
  • are painless
  • are usually on sun-exposed areas of the skin

Diagnose age spots

Your doctor will usually detect age spots by looking at your skin. If your doctor is concerned that a dark area is not an age spot, he may do a biopsy. A small piece of skin will be removed and checked for cancer or other anomalies.  

Getting rid of age spots

You can diminish, lessen or remove age spots by using a number of different methods, such as using home remedies, skin-bleaching products, OTC and prescription products, or using professional age spot skin treatments. However, if you can defend your skin from ultraviolet light, by avoiding the sun and using sunscreen – you might be able to prevent age spots and maintain your skin’s youthful appearance. But if you go out habitually for extended periods without any sunscreen, you will probably get them early in life. Kaya’s Daily Use Sunscreen SPF15 not only protects your skin from harmful UV-A and UV-B rays, but also hydrates the skin without making it feel sticky. With Ultra Bootstar rating of 5, it offers the highest possible UV-A protection against tanning and ageing due to sun exposure.

Easy ways to smooth and hair-free skin

No one knows the precise reason why people started getting rid of their hair but it is a ritual that seems to be as old as humanity. Earlier when human beings started to remove body hair, the technology was through traditional ways as well as harsh ways. They used a sharp rock to do away with the body hair. Now the technology has advanced and there are better ways to get rid of unwanted body hair – permanently and quickly.  There are various painless ways to get rid of body hair for weeks.

Women continue to have the eternal battle with annoying body hair. Growth of body hair is natural but we still invest time in plucking, waxing, and shaving to get smooth legs, bare armpits and hair free body.

Below are a few ways to get rid of body hair.

Shaving

Shaving is the process of removing hair with a sharp razor to remove hair off at the skin’s surface. This technique of hair removal can be used on almost any body part, and is often the best method for men who like the feel of a close shave. Shaving works best if you have wispy or fine hair.

Shaving can be a low-cost way to get rid of undesirable hair. Done correctly, it should be painless and shaving can be effective for short-term hair removal.

It is not advised as a best hair removal option for those with very thick body hair, because you may still be able to see the hair root just below the skin even after shaving. Also keep in mind that because you are working with a razor, you are susceptible to cuts and razor burns.

Waxing

Waxing is an ancient method of hair removal that involves putting warm wax over an area of unwanted hair, then using a cloth or paper strip to rip hair out by the follicle. It works well for those with dark or thick hair.

With waxing, hair appears to grow back more slowly because you are removing each hair straight from the follicle. Waxing can be moderately economical depending on whether you choose to go to a professional or do it at home. It is known to be painful. You will also need to take care of your exfoliating routine to ward off ingrown hair.

Laser hair removal and electrolysis

Laser hair removal and electrolysis provide the closest thing to permanent hair removal. ‘Laser’ refers to an intense pulse of light, which means it carries a risk of burns and should only be done by a certified expert. Electrolysis involves inserting a fine needle into the hair shaft to destroy the hair producing cells. Kaya offers best services supervised by dermatologists who customise the laser service to suit your skin and hair type. 

Kaya Hairfree Gentle Touch works on the hair root without harming the surrounding skin and reducing your hair from the root and preventing further growth. It has no side effects and within a couple of sittings body hair from all over your body can be removed. Book an appointment now! The technology is advanced and customised as per your needs. So going laser is the best way to be fuzz-free.

Here's how you can be freckles free

They are predominantly common in people who have fair skin. They appear on upper-body skin areas like the cheeks, nose, arms, and upper shoulders and appear on people as young as 1 or 2 years of age.

Most freckles on a person's skin are generally uniform in colour. On different people, freckles may differ in colour, they are reddish, yellow, tan, light brown, brown, or black but they are mostly slightly darker than the surrounding skin. They are likely to become darker and more obvious after sun exposure and reduce in the winter months. Freckles are due to a rise in the amount of dark pigment called melanin.

Types of freckles

There are two types of freckles: simple freckles and sunburn freckles. Simple freckles are usually sun-tanned, round, and small about the size of a common construction nail head. Sunburn freckles are often darker, have uneven rough borders, and are larger. Sunburn freckles are more common on the upper back and shoulders where people often get their most severe sunburns.

Development of freckles

Freckles are thought to develop as a result of a combination of genetic inheritance and sun exposure. Two individuals getting the same sun exposure may not have an equivalent probability of developing freckles. Natural sunlight and artificial sun tanning lights release ultraviolet (UV) rays. After exposure to ultraviolet rays, the outer layer of the skin thickens and the pigment-producing cells produce the pigment melanin at a higher rate.

Preventive Measures Since there is little we can do about the genes, we can focus on the preventive measures to reduce freckles. Let us look at ways we can prevent freckles.

1. It is best that you defend yourself from the harmful rays of sun-protection from a young age. This means right from the tender age as a kid you need to protect yourself from the sun.

2. Opt for sunscreens with an SPF value that suits the environmental conditions around you. The more you expose yourself to the sun rays, higher should be the SPF. Apply sunscreen on all areas that are exposed to the sun, as freckles can appear anywhere. People who have sensitive skin can opt for Kaya’s Sensitive Skin Sunscreen provides effective protection against harmful UV-A and UV-B rays. It is light weight and its non-greasy formula hydrates the skin. Visit: http://shop.kayaclinic.com/shop-online/sensitive-skin-sunscreen to know more.

3. Avoid stepping out in the sun between 10 am to 4 pm, as this is the time when the sun-rays are the harshest.

4. Make sure that you re-apply sunscreen after every few hours, while you are out in the sun. You can even opt for sweat-proof sunscreen as it stays longer. Kaya’s Sweat Proof Sunscreen SPF 30+ is water and sweat resistant. Sunscreen delivering up to 8 hour broad spectrum protection against harmful UV-A and UV-B rays. To know more:  http://shop.kayaclinic.com/shop-online/sweat-proof-sunscreen-spf30

5. Wear broad-brimmed hat and try to remain in shade as much as possible. This is particularly required in case of those having fair skin, as they are more likely to have genes that can cause freckles.

Treatment for freckles

If freckles are aggravated and you want to have a clear skin, they can be medically treated. Kaya provides treatments that are consulted and carried out under the care of skin care experts. Treatments involve:

  • Chemical Peeling: If you are wondering how to remove freckles forever, this might just be the perfect solution.

This Monsoon, Forget Your Oily Skin Woes

It is okay if you forget to take care of your health and body for some time, but can you overlook it the whole season? The answer is a big NO, as you might be aware that extra care is needed for your skin this season. As you can find visible changes in weather, you will notice your skin getting oilier. However, taking formidable steps would reduce your efforts as the season progresses.

Here’s a quick read to know the root causes of oily skin and how to prevent its side-effects this season.

Where does the oil come from?

Oil is produced by the sebaceous glands. Some people have hyperactive sebaceous glands that produce surplus sebum, or oil, that adds to the look of oily skin. The glands are in ample on the face, neck, chest, and head, so that's why those areas tend to be affected the most and have skin complications. Whatever is creating the problem, there are steps you can take to manage it, so you can look radiant.

Use Oil free cosmetics

For oily skin always use powder or mineral based cosmetics rather than oil based cosmetics. Avoid cream-based blushers and eyeshadows, opt for powder-based products.

Always opt for oil-free, water-based cosmetics that are categorized as being 'non-comedogenic', which means they will not block the pores and cause spots.

Always remove make-up at night with a gentle cleanser. Kaya’s Daily Face Cleanser for Sensitive Skin is formulated for sensitive facial skin that needs special attention; this mild, soap free formula cleanses your facial skin gently without dryness or irritation. To know more click: http://shop.kayaclinic.com/shop-online/face-cleanser-sensitive-skin

Kaya’s skin experts’ advise us to avoid using everyday hand soap on your face as it's too harsh and can lead to stripping of the essential oils the skin needs.

Cleaning, Toning and Moisturising

No matter how tempted you are to use the strongest products available in the market to wash away the oil, please don’t give in to this temptation. Do not over scrub your skin or use harsh cleansers thinking it might help. It is likely it will harm your skin and could make it even more oil sensitive. Kaya’s Skin Awakening Rinse is a multi-vitamin shimmering cleanser which is designed to wash away impurities without altering the skin's natural moisture balance. Visit: http://shop.kayaclinic.com/shop-online/skin-awakening-rinse to know more.

Toning is the next step to achieving a healthy skin. Use a mild toner to tighten up the skin and close the pores as open pores are easily susceptible to dirt and germs from the external environment. Kaya’s Refining Mist Revitalising Tonic is an alcohol free toner that helps to detoxify skin and maintain its natural PH balance. Visit http://shop.kayaclinic.com/shop-online/refining-mist to know more.

Moisturizing is the final step in complete skin care routine. Oily skin produces excessive oil but that should not stop you from moisturizing it. Since it is likely that you will get wet in the rain, use a light weight moisturizer on your face. Kaya’s Anytime Moisturizing Cream is a light moisturising cream that minimizes water loss from the skin and keeps it soft, supple and provides essential nourishment to the skin.

Experts at Kaya also suggest that you go for a facial every 15 days to have beautiful skin. Kaya Clear Fresh Oil Control Facial is a customized and effective service that zaps oil traces from the skin’s surface, removes impurities and appeases skin condition.

  So, this monsoon, go out and enjoy the rains but don’t forget to pamper your skin.
