Categories : Body Tips, Skincare, Skincare Tips

We all have body skin issues. Some are manageable, others have it worse. We acknowledge the issues, and have come up with some easy solutions for effective body care:

For Stretch Marks

Stretch marks are inevitable. For women, it is most evident during pregnancy. Other possible causes includes thinning of the skin as we age, or sudden weight fluctuations. The best way is to treat it as soon as they start showing up. When stretch marks are new, they come of as pink in color. Some have it red. While they are still at this stage, they are still most receptive to v-beam or a pulsed dye laser.

For Cellulite

Cellulites are probably the most frustrating body skin problem as there is still no cure found to fix this problem to date.

The good news is, there are two things you can to do prevent cellulites from happening! One is radio frequency treatment. The most popular one today is called Thermage. It basically tightens the tissue of your problem areas for a great 2 years. Another is tightening and lifting creams! This one’s the cheaper, quicker but a more temporary approach.

Bruises

The annoying part of bruises are that they are obvious on the skin. The good thing is it will pass over a few days.Alternatively you can try to lessen its colour with  a concealer.

Body Acne

The tropics encourages sweat and oil. They are main reasons of clogging pores.

Scars

Scars, it seems, come in different size, shapes and colour. And they take a long time to disappear. If you are the impatient type and topical creams are not your style, you can check out laser treatments such as vascular and Fraxel lasers. There are also steroids injectable available in the market that are more for scars that are raised and textured, like keloids.

Arm Bumps

People who have eczema or dry skin usually experience arm bumps. With arm bumps, the best way not to inflame it by scrubbing or scratching it! Look for skin products that have alpha hydroxyl acids and hydrocortisone. These aid in clearing up redness, bumps and inflammation.
