1. Keep it lukewarm
Winter is the time when your skin and hair need maximum attention. Though the idea of piping hot water is very tempting, stick to a lukewarm water bath every day. Make sure to use a mild non-drying soap or a moisturizing soap.
During winters, the varying temperature outdoors and indoors can have a major effect on the skin. While taking a shower, get into the habit of exfoliating with a loofah so as to remove layers of dead skin and make way for new healthy skin cells.
3. Make moisturizer your daily companion
Needless to say, choose a really good moisturizer to keep the skin moisturized and soft. Pay special attention to the exposed parts (and the most affected areas) like your hands, nails, feet and lips. Keep them well moisturized at all times. Use a lip balm to keep your lips soft and supple.
4. Sunscreen is not just for summers
Wear a sunscreen when you step out in the open. In fact, it should be a part of your daily routine throughout the year and especially during the winters. This is the time when it may seem that you don’t need protection from the sun but you really do!
5. Avoid excess use of deodorants
As you hardly tend to sweat during winter, it’s best to restrict the usage of deodorants which contain high alcohol content. These products tend to strip away the skin’s moisture leaving your skin dry. Go for alcohol-free products instead.
6. Conditioner is a must
Since you don’t sweat much in winter, don’t shampoo too often as it may dry out the scalp and hair. Use a mild shampoo and lukewarm water as very hot water can be harmful to your hair and scalp. And don’t forget the conditioner. If you want to go natural, coconut milk is an excellent conditioner.
7. Oil your hair regularly
However busy your schedule is, don’t skip the oil your hair needs. It will help regulate the blood circulation and keep your scalp moisturized.
8. Style wisely
Say no to hair dryers/ flat irons/ curl irons. These hair styling instruments work on the principle of heat, which when used during winters make matters worse. Instead use the cool setting of the dryer which though may take longer to dry but it would retain the moisture. Choose wooden hair brushes or combs instead of plastic. This is to fight the static hair caused by absence of moisture. If it fits in your schedule and budget, visit a good salon for protein treatment.
9. Cover with care
While woolen caps, scarves and stoles may make a style statement, it can also be the cause of hair breakage especially at the nape of your neck or forehead. Don’t try to be over-protective by wearing them tightly around your head. Leave sufficient space for air circulation in the scalp.
I am just 13 years old and have found some reddish chunks in my stool, I am worried that it can be due to cancer or results of internal bleeding in stomach.
In today’s world, we need not depend only on our genes to be beautiful; thanks to the latest cosmetic procedures. One of them is mesotherapy. It is a non-surgical, cosmetic medicine treatment that was developed in France in 1952.
How it works:
This technique uses injections of vitamins, enzymes, minerals, plant extracts and hormones. It works on the mesoderm that is the layer of fat and tissue underneath the skin for dealing with problems such ascellulite, excess weight, face or neck rejuvenation and body contouring.
Mesotherapy treats hair loss and helps hair growth as it deals with the scalp and hair follicles.Male and female pattern baldness, patchy hair loss and hair loss from stress can be treated through mesotherapy. In “Non-needle mesotherapy”, which uses the principle of eletroporation, pores of the skin are opened using a heating system and injections are given. Then the pores are closed after cooling.In another process, the vitamins, minerals and minoxidil are injected into the mesoderm of the thinning area of the scalp at every 1 cm distance. The hair follicles then absorb the maximum nutrients, which trigger the growth of hair.It also ensures thatthe scalp has a good amount of amino acids and boosts keratin production.
Mesotherapy helps in achieving younger, brighter and smoother skin. The injections of Hyaluronic acid into the epidermis and mesodermmake the skin look hydrated, glowing, radiant and firmer by boosting cell activity and stimulating the production of collagen and elastin. It hence nourishes and rejuvenates the skin. This improves the skin’s complexion, prevents wrinkles and revives dull, tired looking skin and improves tone and elasticity of the sagging skin in the neck area and on the hands. During the treatment, one should avoid alcohol and follow a low fat diet, while drinking lots of water to help eliminate toxins. After the treatment, the skin should not be exposed to the sun.
Advantages and Disadvantages of Mesotherapy:
The reason for the popularity of mesotherapy is its many advantages. This therapy is safe because it minimizes side-effects such as allergies or drug interaction. Anesthesia that can create complications is not used in this therapy. It ensures quick recovery for all hair and skin problems. Lastly, it is the least painful of all the therapies out there, although it is a little bit uncomfortable due to pinches on the scalp. There are disadvantages as well. This therapy may create some complications to patients who are pregnant or breast-feeding.
One should go to an experienced and skilled doctor for this treatment as if not properly performed it can cause severe skin damage. The treatment is given once a week at first, and after some time it is given once a month. Generally, it is a four-six month course of treatment. Results can only be observed after the treatment is complete. Hence, it should not be stopped in the middle otherwise the desired results will not be achieved.
