Hot vs Cold: Which Water Temperature is Best for Your Skin

MD - Alternate Medicine, DNHE, BHMS

Hot vs Cold: Which Water Temperature is Best for Your Skin

Washing your skin with water is something that you probably do daily, but you may not know at what temperature the water should be. Using water at the correct temperature is advantageous for the skin. Water at extreme temperatures is harmful for the skin as your skin is not designed that way.

The temperature of the water should also depend on the purpose for which it is being used. Here are some tips on how to set the temperature of the water depending on the purpose: 

  1. Showering: While showering, if you are using hot water, then it may strip your skin of its essential oils and make it vulnerable to dryness. This may cause various skin complications, such as cracked and rough skin. Hence, use lukewarm water while you shower.
  2. Washing your hair: Using hot water to wash your hair may lead to hair damage as it rids your hair of all the essential oils and makes it limp and dull. Lukewarm to normal water is recommended while washing your hair as it will allow the hair to retain its natural oils.
  3. Brushing: The right temperature of water while brushing your teeth should optimally be lukewarm. Too cold or hot water can lead to teeth sensitivity and cause oral problems.
  4. Washing your face: Before you apply a cleansing agent on your face, use warm water to wet the face as it helps to open up your pores. After the cleansing agent is applied, then use cold water to wash your face. Cold water helps in closing the pores after the impurities are removed from the skin.
  5. Shaving: If you are going to shave, then opt for warm water as it opens the pores up and thus makes it easier for the blade to glide through the skin. This also reduces the risk of razor burns on your skin.
  6. Washing your feet: Wash your feet with lukewarm water as it facilitates dead cell removal and also helps in getting rid of warts.

The cause for underweight baby not only depend on amount of the food consumed during pregnancy. Along with good number of medical cause it also depend on occupational-physical-mental stress during pregnancy. Environmental factors also play important role in the growth of the baby. Nothing to worry try to come out from current stress at the earliest and plan pregnancy minimum of 6month gap. Be hopeful. God bless you.

I have a heavy breast and a bulky body and quite ashamed of it . Please advise me to reduce this ?
To be and become you are only person to resolve your problem. Heavy boobs are to be controlled and managed by your daily exercises and diet control. Eat the good fat (olive oil, fish oil, flax seed oil or seed) with doctors permission only, take cla (conjugated linoleic acid) as per body weight to reduce abdominal fat. Get 8 hours sleep minimize stress to minimize stress hormones (and reduce abdominal fat) snack on a small amount of almonds (5 at a time) throughout the day (4 times a day maximum) never weigh yourself (judge progress by clothing size, inch loss, only) write a food diary every day to stay on track. Time will come you will be sound body with good fitness. Ok.

Ayurveda Tips to Control Hair Fall

Hair loss can be harrowing for both men and women, especially if it tends to be above normal for extended periods of time. Losing more hair than that can signify problems within the body such as hormonal changes, ageing, life style related issues etc. 

Lifestyle change tips to avoid hair fall: Even before getting into Ayurvedic remedies to control the loss of hair, it is important to reduce the problems which may be contributing to the problem in the first place. Some of the things that you may be required to do are:

  1. Maintain or start of on a healthy diet and cut fatty, oily and processed foods from your diet.
  2. Start exercising to ensure that your body is in the best shape it possibly can be and thus everything within, is functioning optimally.
  3. Start doing yoga, breathing exercises and other meditative techniques to ensure that your stress levels are kept under control.
  4. Get head massages regularly as they improve blood circulation within the scalp 
  5. Quit smoking, excessive alcohol consumption and inculcate good sleep habits which help prevent hair loss problems. 


Controlling hair loss with Ayurvedic tips:

  1. Indian gooseberry or amla: A pack of amla, bramhi and henna powder can be made with curd and water. Apply it and keep it for a couple of hours and then wash it off. Amla juice mixed with lemon juice can be massaged on the scalp after the wash. This will make the follicles on your scalp stronger. 
  2. Ritha: An age old solution to hair problems, Ritha is also known as soapberry as it contains naturally foamy and cleansing agents. Crush the Ritha seeds and keep them soaked in water overnight. Wash your hair with the mixture in the morning and continue for a month to see visible results.
  3. Aloe vera with cumin seeds: Mix about one third cup of aloe vera juice with a little bit of cumin or Jeera powder. Use this mixture at least twice a day, for a few months to see results in the prevention of hair thinning.
  4. Bhringaraaj: One of the most effective Ayurvedic herbs used in many medicines, it can be taken internally to help the system repair the hair related problems, or applied externally as Bhringaraaj oil to encourage hair growth and stopping hair loss.
  5. Brahmi oil: Considered brain food in its herb form, Brahmi oil is known to be very good for hair related ailments and is very effective at stopping hair loss and help new hair growth.

Lybrate-user, you are running with irregular cycle. Try to regularize it by your some drugs and adequate balanced food. As you are under weight try to increase 5 kg more. Malnutrition and lean and thin health breaks your cycle. S take care with natural vit iron minerals and uterine tonic to regularise. Ok.
