What is your perspective on skincare?
Every skin is unique and needs its own kind of care. I believe selecting a regimen needs professional guidance and supervision. Nowadays people experiment with many ingredients and unfortunately the majority of them face reactions. Have your dermatoogist suggest a plan and have him/her guide you about what your skin concerns are and how you should be handling them.
One should start slow and gradually build up.
What inspired you to create your own product line?
My product line is a clinical solution to skin problems. I always wanted to add ingredients like lactic acid, niacinamide and arbutin etc., and I found it very difficult to find them in our dermatological brands, hence I developed a line to provide my patients with the best ingredients.
I also wanted graded strength-a milder version for sensitive skin and a stronger one for mature skin. The Skin Theory has a wide range of products with various strengths for every condition accordingly.
Is there really an easy way to achieve glowing skin?
A surface that is smooth and taut will reflect light and glow naturally. In order for skin to do that, you should focus on keeping your skin smooth. Smoothness is achieved with a cleansing routine and exfoliation (at least once a week). Retinol and ingredients such as lactic acid also help. To keep the skin tight one needs excellent sun protection, with SPF and antioxidant ingredients like Vitamin C. Simply said, glowing skin requires a regular habit of applying sunblock and a carefully planned regimen.
How soon should one start considering treatments like Botox or derma fillers?
Treatments like fillers and Botox are done depending on the skin’s condition and its requirement. Sometimes it’s also done for prevention. Ideally, I prefer meeting clients and then creating a step-by-step plan for them based on their situation.
What beauty and skin care products can you not live without?
My holy grail is sunblock. Apart from that Va Va Voom Wash, Beam Me Up, Hyaluronic Moisturiser, Skintinni and the Vitamin C Brightening Serum-all by The Skin Theory.
What’s your own daily skincare regime like?
The products above are my daily routine. I add The Glow Toner once a week, which is a mild Glycolic Acid peel
What’s your idea of beauty? Is there a definition you live by?
For me beauty is in what makes you smile with confidence.
