VLCC Style Statements Session at Hazratganj, Lucknow

Taking good care of our skin and hair is very important and also a very difficult task. We're always looking for remedies and products that work well on us without requiring too much effort. Upon my recent visit to VLCC Style Statements session at the Hazratganj branch in Lucknow, I got the opportunity to interact with the beauty category manager at VLCC, Ms. Sushmita Verma, who had come down all the way from Gurgaon to the city of Nawabs to help us clear our doubts about how could we better our beauty concepts while striving through a busy life! I, along with my blogger clan in the city teamed up to ask a lot of questions that concerned us and most of you who had shown interest wanting to know the answers about your hair and beauty related problems during the LIVE session, and the expert team at VLCC was kind enough to answer them all, out of which I'm sharing the most requested ones below.



L-R : Mrs. Neelima, Me, Ms. Sushmita


VLCC has brought a new dimension in the Indian beauty world. Presently it is one of the leading cosmetology and beauty centres in the country offering various effective beauty treatments at reasonable prices. There were 5 basic questions that most of us wanted to know so that we could better our beauty regime, or if not then take necessary treatments. Find below (questions by us, answered by Ms. Sushmita and Mrs. Neelima)

Q.1.) How to get rid of acne?
A.1.) Breakouts are caused by one thing only - combination of oil and dead skin cells that block bacteria and clog hair follicles. The best defense against pimples is to find a cleansing routine that works for you and stick with it. Also remember to remove your makeup every night and don't over exfoliate — twice a week is fine. And use an oil-free moisturizer with added SPF. 

Q.2.) How to get rid of stretch marks?
A.2.) There really is no way to get rid of them or prevent them, but they do fade over time. A dermatologist at VLCC can, however, speed up the fading process by prescribing a cream or gel with retinoid, which helps cell turnover and stimulate collagen growth. The few VLCC dermatological methods include : Lasers, Chemical Peeling, Electro Cautery, Botox, Microdermabrasion, Fillers. These are are little costlier but highly effective!

Q.3.) How to get rid of bags under your eyes?
A.3.) Try a cold compress first thing in the morning. Clean potato or cucumber slices that have been refrigerated will also work. Another option is, after your morning cup of tea, place cold tea bags under your eyes for a few minutes for the same effect.

Q.4.). How to minimize pores?
A.4.) Try using a cream or gel with retinol nightly. And in the morning, apply a moisturizer with added SPF to prevent sun damage. A few days a week you should also exfoliate to remove dead skin and deep clean your pores.

Q.5.) What's the best way to deal with age spots - and keep hands from ageing?
A.5.) VLCC offers several anti-ageing treatments which prove to be very effective on the skin. But if you're looking for natural remedies, you must avoid exposure from the sun. Doing so will not only reduce the risk of age spots, but also reduce collagen breakdown so your hands will wrinkle less. If you use sunscreen from early in life, you will reduce the risk of age spots in later years. But its never too late : using sunscreen after age spots develop will help prevent more from appearing. While skin lightening products will help diminish some age spots, only permanent treatments, such as lasers or chemical peels, can remove them completely.




The wide range of beauty & hair products available at VLCC


Coming to hair problems, ofcourse we all have them a lot. And, I'm sure you must have already guessed the 5 biggest and the most basic hair related queries I might have shot at the VLCC expert to answer. Read them below.

Q.1.) How to tackle frizzy hair?
A.1.) One should firstly get his/her scalp and hair checked and on the basis of the problems, decide a hair care routine. One of the sure ways to tackle dry hair is their newest "Medivita" range, which takes care of the frizz. 

Q.2.) How to combat hair fall?
A.2.) Take a proper, nutritive diet. Sleep well. And, use VLCC Hibiscus Anti Hair Fall Shampoo, as it shows visible results in controlling hair fall, making your hair soft, shiny and healthy because of the natural ingredients it contains. It’s pocket-friendly and the quantity is also very good. You may choose to use VLCC Wheat Protein Hair Conditioner which is silicone-free, along with it. Try and see the difference yourself!

Q.3.) Why do anti-oil shampoos seem to make hair oilier?
A.3.) The problem is known as "rebound" oil production - a condition that occurs when you strip so much oil from your hair that it sends a message to your sebaceous glands to produce more oil. The greatest offenders are harsh shampoos, some of which are formulated for oily hair. To combat the problem, choose a shampoo for "dry", "sensitive", or color treated hair. These products are designed to give the most thorough cleansing without stripping the hair. So not only will you effectively remove all the oils, you won't trigger the "oil alarm" when doing it.

Q.4.) How to reverse grey hair?
A.4.) Natural remedies such as a good hair vitamin, mental relaxation, having a balanced diet and maintenance of cleanliness have considerable effects in preventing grey hair. Or you could visit a salon and ask about your hair coloring options. If a major portion is affected, then you can try a new style or hair cut so that you can look younger. Finally, if the distribution of grey hair is uneven – or if your hair color turns out to be darker and duller due to ageing, then you can use highlights to bring the youth and lustre back to your mane.

Q.5.) Why does hair color fade, and what can one do about it?
A.5.) One cause of fading hair color is oxidation, a natural process that occurs when oxygen molecules in the air attach themselves to color molecules in your hair. The end result dulls and fades hair color. While there's not much you can about it, you do have power over one contributing factor : sun exposure. Indeed, the sun fades hair color much the same way it fades your living room drapes. Keeping your head covered will dramatically reduce the sun's fading power. To reduce fading, choose a quality shampoo with gentle ingredients, and look for products for color treated or damaged/dry hair. You might also want to try a color enhancing shampoo, a temporary product that revitalises hair and pumps up color between salon appointments. However, be sure to tell your colorist if try these shampoos, some can impact the performance of permanent hair coloring!




To end, it was quite a fun and interactive session that we had the VLCC centre and I look forward to using the services that they had suggested me personally to try sometime, related to my skin & hair issues; and would recommend you guys to try them as well. With that, I hope this post was helpful. If it was, do let me know in the comments below, and also if you have any more questions that you think I can help you get answers of, please drop them down! Until next, take care of your health and skin, and let your hair sway. Lots of love!
