The weather in most of India these days is unkind to the skin. The heat, sweat and dust clogs up the pores of the skin and making it difficult for the skin to breath. Acne can flare up and the skin lacks radiance and lustre.
Wear cool cotton clothes and always wear a sunscreen and carry an umbrella to protect yourself from the sun. Wash your face several times a day with plain water. Avoid harsh soaps. Rose water is an excellent toner for the summer. Eat light, fresh food and avoid oily and spicy food.
Stay healthy this summer.
With summer at its peak, applying sunscreen should be part of your essential skin care routine. Sun can damage your skin in many ways. In short term it can cause tanning and skin burn, pigmentation and dry skin. In the long term it accelerates skin aging, with the appearance of fine line and wrinkles, making the skin look dull.
Sunlight is made up of ultraviolet A (UVA) and ultraviolet B (UVB) rays. UVA causes the superficial skin burn and the UVB penetrates the skin causing long term damage and aging.
So invest in a high factor SPF (sun protection factor), (between 30 – 50) broad spectrum sunscreen lotion made by a reputable company. SPF more than 50 usually does not add any additional benefit. Follow the instructions, as you may need to apply it several time a day, e.g. after a swim or excessive sweating.
So now there is no need to suffer low self esteem if you suffer hair thinning. Hair transplantation techniques have improved and with a good team, excellent result can be obtained.
