Healthy Skin Tips with Dr. Athalye

With so many skincare products and tips out there, it can be overwhelming to know where to start. That's why we've turned to the expertise of board-certified dermatologist, Dr. Leela Athalye, to share her tips and tricks to achieving healthy and happy skin!

Acne and scarring can be a real struggle for many of us. Dr. Athalye understands the frustration and emphasizes the power of key ingredients like retinols, niacinamide, and vitamin C in curbing these concerns. She specifically highlights the powerful healing properties found in Blume's Meltdown Acne Oil. With the magic of rosehip to fade dark spots and the soothing qualities of blue tansy, this potent oil is a game-changer in the fight against acne and scarring.


When it comes to achieving smooth and poreless skin, Dr. Athalye recommends turning to Blume's Superpower Face Mask, a true skincare superhero. Packed with montmorillonite clay to remove impurities and minimize the appearance of pores, bentonite clay to tone and firm the skin, and kaolin clay to control excess oil, this mask is a game-changer. The addition of niacinamide further enhances its pore-reducing effects, leaving you with squeaky clean skin! 

As the seasons change, so do our skincare needs. Dr. Athalye stresses the importance of adapting our routines accordingly. With summer approaching, she suggests switching to lightweight formulations that won't feel heavy or greasy on the skin. Sunscreen becomes an absolute must during this time (as they do all year round), and regular reapplication is crucial for protecting your skin from harmful UV rays. Dr. Athalye also advises keeping your showers on the cooler side to soothe and prevent flare-ups in eczema-prone skin.

We're beyond grateful to Dr. Athalye for generously sharing her tips and addressing your skincare q’s. At Blume, we believe that skincare is a personal adventure, and consulting with a dermatologist adds an extra touch of expertise to your journey.

Cheers to healthy and happy skin besties!
