Does dandruff worsen acne?
Dandruff clogs the pores - and acne is caused by clogged pores resulting from a build-up of oils and dead skin cells - it can lead to the development of breakouts on your skin.
Dandruff has been associated with presence of yeast or fungi, it is also associated with abnormal skin ultrastructure. Dandruff makes the skin on your scalp flaky. These dry flakes of skin are often responsible for clogging the pores on your face, mostly affecting your forehead. In this way, dandruff triggers appearance of acne and can worsen the condition of your skin if you already have pimples. Though acne is more common among teenagers, acne due to dandruff is mostly experienced by people above the age of 20.

How do you take consent?

We believe consent is a two way process to help clients make the right decision for them based on the best available evidence and our medical expertise. Consent is obtained before every treatment by the clinician who is actually going to perform the procedure to ensure complete transparency.
How does my diet affect our skin?
A healthy diet may provide you with clearer skin, but it may even prevent skin cancers like melanoma or carcinoma.
It can affect moisture levels:
Drinking water is one of the healthiest habits you can have for your skin and your entire body. When you drink plenty of water throughout the day, you are providing your inner organs and your skin—the largest organ of your body—with moisture that has been lost through sweat and other natural processes.
It can affect your wrinkles:
When you eat certain foods with healthy oils and omega-3 fatty acids, you can greatly impact the health of your skin. These oils and fats can be found in fish, nuts, olive oil, and many more foods. By consuming these oily foods on a regular basis, along with healthy proteins, you can help the collagen production in your skin. By increasing your skin’s collagen production, your skin will be smoother and suppler, which will help prevent premature wrinkles and skin sagging.
How does stress affect our skin?
Skin mast cells are activated by stress and in turn they also produce stress hormones and inflammatory factors. This could lead to a vicious cycle of stress-induced inflammatory events. Indeed mast cells have been implicated in numerous skin diseases including acne, atopic dermatitis, psoriasis and pruritus
Stress triggers the hypothalamus-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis, a trio of glands that play key roles in the body’s response to stress. This can cause production of local pro-inflammatory factors, such as cortisol and key hormones in the fight-or-flight stress response called catecholamines, which can direct immune cells from the bloodstream into the skin or stimulate pro-inflammatory skin cells. Mast cells are a key type of pro-inflammatory skin cell in the brain-skin axis; they respond to the hormone cortisol through receptor signaling, and directly contribute to a number of skin conditions, including itch.
Psychological stress can also disrupt the epidermal barrier — the top of layer of the skin that locks in moisture and protects us from harmful microbes — and prolong its repair. An intact epidermal barrier is essential for healthy skin; when disrupted, it can lead to irritated skin, as well as chronic skin conditions including eczema, psoriasis, or wounds. Psychosocial stress has been directly linked to exacerbation of these conditions. Acne flares have also been linked to stress, although the understanding of this relationship is still evolving skin to be more reactive and sensitive, triggering hives.
