Dr. Chytra a Dermatologist launches her own active facial range specifically formulated for Indian skin type
, skincare is no longer restricted to a cleanse-tone-moisturize routine. From facial rollers to hydrating sheet masks, our skincare ritual has changed drastically.
The emergence of several new brands touting their products as a ‘game-changer’ or the ‘best’, has also made it safe to say that deciding what goes on your skin is getting quite complicated.
Everyone’s skin is different, apart from your skin type, you also need to consider your primary skin concern, followed by your smaller, secondary skin concerns, and devise a skincare routine that caters to all of them. Sounds like a lot of work. It is not.
We live in an era of customization – this also includes your skincare products. Mass-produced skincare products will not necessarily cater to your skin concern.
The other way to know if a skincare product is right for your skin or has any chances of a harmful reaction in any circumstance is to speak to a certified skin expert or professional. They evaluate everything from your current skincare routine to your makeup preferences, lifestyle, diet, and overall health before devising a routine for you.
Indian Skin is known as the ‘skin of colour’ and it is different from Western or Asian Skin and has its characteristic,
As a celebrity Dermatologist, we make people aware that Indians must use products specifically curated for their ethnicity and skincare problem. Most people in India don’t realize that skincare must be formulated for their skin type and not a generic version if they wish to see long-lasting results.
Apart from that, due to the presence of extra pigment in our skin type, the skin reacts differently. Eg: Caucasian
or oriental skin will get red on irritation and heal. Indian skin/skin of color develop pigment patch and the red turns to brown. Leading to post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation. This makes Indian skin highly sensitive.
When exposed to the sun, Indian skin does not typically burn but gets tanned sooner which is a superficial pigmentation that wears of, But constant exposure can cause pigmentation which causes skin patchiness.
Therefore, after years of research, we are proud to bring beauty curated for the Indian skin using only natural actives, It is designed to tackle skin issues such as acne, pigmentation, and dull skin which are commonly faced by Indian skin.
