Skin deep with Dr. Ratnavel
We caught up with the renowned Dermatologist Dr. Ravi Ratnavel
Graduating from Trinity College, Oxford with over 20 years of experience in helping those with complex skin conditions, he manages his consultations from London’s Harley Street and his private clinic in Beaconsfield. Ravi covers all aspects of dermatology, including skin cancer; hair, skin and nail disorders; acne; inflammatory skin disease; difficult rashes; suspicious moles and psoriasis.
So, Dr Ratnavel, what inspired you to become a dermatologist?
"Our skin is the largest organ of our body and problems relating to it are numerous ranging from a mild irritation to inflammatory skin disease, acne, skin and nail disorders to more serious skin cancer. I wanted to solve these issues for people and chose this field which is reliant upon clinical skills and treatments. These involve a mix of medical and surgical skills tailored to each case individually."
And what has been your experience sleeping on a MayfairSilk pillowcase?
"MayfairSilk has benefits for the skin being hypoallergenic and also being softer than cotton. This helps many people with sensitive skin and others that experience breathing difficulties owing to house dust mites. I generally recommend children suffering from sensitive skin to sleep in silk pyjamas as it is anti-bacterial and gentle on the skin. Additionally, I like how easy it has been to clean in the washing machine on a silk setting."
Dr Ratnavel’s Top Tips:
- Drink lots of water.
- Avoid excess alcohol.
- Avoid all tobacco products.
- Use moisturisers copiously for dehydrated skin.
- A careful approach to sun exposure is important with daily UV protection if you have fair skin.
