Effective Treatments For Asian Skin Problems

Dr. Sunil Dhawan skin care interview

Dr. Sunil Dhawan is a popular dermatologist who has been practicing for 20 years.   I see him for skin and hair concerns and we visit the same gym.   There is a friend-like relationship besides being doctor and patient.  Yet still it took a while to book a slot with him when I requested to interview him,  as he is always so busy.

The procedure included scrubbing, applying seaweed mud, wrapping with a thermal blanket, an express facial, showering, applying body lotion, and aroma therapy in the end.
