    Your skin goes through a lot of wear and tear everyday, with sun rays wreaking a havoc to it. The harsh rays of sun does a lot of damage to your skin and contribute greatly to the aging process.

    Using a sunscreen every time you step outdoors and using it correctly is of vital importance to have healthy skin. However, most people have different misconceptions about sunscreen usage.

    The right sunscreen provides protection from the spectrum of harmful rays of the sun that are known as UVA and UVB, which not only create the threat of skin cancer but also slows down the process of skin aging.

    Regularly using sunscreen can keep the skin protected from skin damage. Damage caused due to exposure to the sun is the leading cause of skin aging. The harmful rays of the sun known as UVA and UVB have a tremendous impact on the health of skin and they speed up the process of skin aging. It also affects those with fairer or lighter skin more due to the lack of melanin in their skin.

    Regularly wearing sunscreen has proven to reduce skin aging by keeping it protected from sun damage. The sunscreen acts as a layer of defense against sun radiation and keeps it from causing any damage. Skin is, thus, protected from accelerated aging.

    How to correctly use sunscreen to reduce skin aging?

    There are certain specifics that need to be kept in mind while using sunscreen in order to increase its benefit. Some of these are as follows:

    - The right product must be carefully chosen. It is necessary to use sunscreen that has SPF rating of 30 or more.

    - It must be reapplied every few hours as sunscreen gets easily washed away due to sweating and exposure to moisture.

    - It must be applied at least 15 minutes before stepping out into the sun.

    - The habit of using sunscreen must be started early, preferably from childhood.

    - Sunscreen must be used even on cloudy and overcast days.The adoption of these measures while using sunscreen has been proved effective in reducing skin aging and preventing the early formation of wrinkles, discoloration and sagging skin.

    Seborrheic dermatitis refers to a kind of chronic skin rash affecting the scalp or face of a person. It has symptoms similar to that of eczema. Excess oil and greasiness could lead to this condition. This is a commonly noticed condition among children and adults. Seborrheic dermatitis is characterized by red patches, persistent dandruff, and flaking skin. This kind of skin disorder needs immediate treatment as neglecting the upsetting signs can turn out to be fatal; you may face a neurological breakdown after suffering for days together.

    Take a look at the causes of Seborrheic Dermatitis:
    1. This skin disease could develop in response to psoriasis. Inflammatory responses often result in reddish patches on the skin.
    2. Malassezia could cause Seborrheic Dermatitis. Malassezia is a type of yeast present in the oil secretions of a human body.
    3. Such a condition could be worsened by the predominant weather conditions. Extreme winters or early spring can make your skin peel off.

    Symptoms a person may face:
    1. The first and foremost symptom is red colored skin. The skin will appear as itchy and tender.
    2. A stinging sensation is experienced in affected areas. The pain could be serious enough to prevent you from working or resting.
    3. The eyelids of a person are at times under threat. This condition is more popularly known as blepharitis. The skin of your eyelids becomes red and crusted.
    4. Dandruff can be found on your beard and moustache and even on your eyebrows.
    5. Oily, flaky skin can be found on the scalp, ears, face, chest, armpits and also on the scrotum.

    Skin disorders are taken lightly by most people. Many fail to realize how important skin is to the rest of our biological system. Skin is the primary barrier to all kinds of infections and diseases. A person should be aware of possibilities that can happen to trigger a skin condition like Seborrheic Dermatitis. Poking acne or scratching the skin of one's face, diabetes or obesity, psychological trauma, and weak immunity as noticed among patients of pancreatitis can actually increase your risk of contracting this disorder.

    Acne is a condition that affects many people including teenagers and women during their menstruation period. It is characterised by red eruptions that are usually filled with oil, secreted by overactive oil glands in the hair follicles. So what else should you know about acne? Here are six things you probably did not know about this condition:

    - Clogged Pores: Acne signifies clogged or blocked pores that are filled with oil and dead skin cells that have not been cleaned out completely. This mixture of oil and dead skin cells blocks the pores and ends up creating an eruption of red sores called acne and pimples. There is a chance that bacteria may have joined these two substances as well.

    - Over Treating the Skin: The worst thing that you can do is to touch, pick or even apply too many harsh chemicals to your skin during an acne breakout. These things can actually make the problem worse, and even create scars in the long run! The constant use of cleansers and moisturisers can also have a harsh effect on the skin, due to the perfume and chemicals present in such products.

    - Exfoliation: Using a salicylic acid wash or cleanser first thing in the morning will help in exfoliation, which is a good way to clear those dead skin cells from your skin. This will speed up the process of acne treatment as well, by clearing the pores. Also at night, the use of a medicated cream that contains benzoyl peroxide will help in killing the bacteria, so that there is no infection.

    - Two Weeks Notice: Trying new products to treat acne is a great idea. But give every new product at least two weeks before you write it off. Usually, any good product will take at least that much time to affect the acne, and clear the pores in an effective way. So before you start switching cleansers and creams every other day, remember to use the two-week thumb rule.

    - Menstrual Cycle: Acne, more often than not, rears its head with an eruption or two about five days before and a few days after, the monthly menstrual cycle. So watch out for hormonal imbalances, which can cause acne and pimples. Avoid stress around this time too.

    - Dermatologist: Visit a dermatologist if regular cleaning and over the counter creams are not working.

    Persistent acne may turn into an infection. Remember to ask your dermatologist for an oil reducing formula too.

    Acne is a skin problem that should be treated the right way.

    5 things that worsen your psoriasis

    Psoriasis is one of the most chronic and long lasting diseases relating to the skin. Under this condition, the infected skin cells multiply 10 times faster than the normal rate. During this disease, the normal skin tends to get covered by a layer of dead skin cells, not allowing the skin to breathe. The top five things that can worsen your psoriasis are listed below.


    There is a direct link between your drinking habits and your skin health. Drinking, in general, tends to cause harm to the overall body. Skin being no exception also gets affected adversely by alcohol consumption. If you have psoriasis, then you should immediately consult your dermatologist so that he/she can assign you a daily limit for your alcohol consumption in a manner that it does not worsen the condition of your skin.


    Psoriasis also gets worsened by common infections like an earache, bronchitis, strep throat infection, and such others. It is highly recommended for you to consult your doctor if you have anybody infections along with psoriasis. So the doctor will be able to tell you the risk of the infection and how to go about managing it.


    Stress has been known generally to affect the skin in an adverse manner. Stress can cause your body to have a greater incidence of inflammation on your skin which further affects your skin disease. Your doctor can help you out with the ways to manage your stress so that it does not cause any further damage to your skin.

    Weather changes

    Medical researchers have proved that psoriasis tends to grow in colder and drier conditions. It has reportedly been observed that people having psoriasis have smoother skin during summers than during winters.

    Cuts and bruises

    If there are any kinds of breakouts or irregularities in your skin, then it would further worsen your psoriasis. Your cut skin may lead to a flare which is known as the Koebner phenomenon in medical terminology.

    Microneedling for face and body

    As you roll the skin roller over your skin, it creates pin point punctures into the dermis - the majority of which are simply pushing your pores open temporarily. This is perceived by the body as damage, which stimulates the release of growth factors that trigger the production of collagen and elastin. The human body reacts to any injury by initiating the healing process, but usually, it will only heal as far as it must keep you healthy - which are different to healing to a cosmetic level. By persistently triggering the healing process, you encourage your body to continue healing until the job is finished.

    Your body normally assumes that scars, stretch marks and wrinkles are ok, but with the gentle reminder caused by the derma roller, the body is tricked into continuing the healing process until the body has also healed itself on a cosmetic level. This process of skin remodeling can go on for months after each derma roller treatment, but noticeable results can be seen within a month! your skin naturally renews itself every 40 days, so with a little stimulation changes can be dramatic and fast.

    Skin micro-needling with the derma roller may be carried out safely on all types of skin and all skin colours. Other treatments often have to avoid sensitive areas - such as around the eyes, the neck and the backs of the hands, but the derma roller can be used on all of these areas. The epidermis and melanocytes in the basal area are not damaged, so there's no possibility of post inflammatory hyper pigmentation.

    Does Viagra add to the risks of melanoma?

    Melanoma is one of the most dangerous forms of skin cancer which develops in the skin cells that produce melanin ( the pigment that gives your skin its color). This form of skin cancer is mostly caused by exposure to ultraviolet radiations or it may be congenital in nature.

    The cancer is easily detected by the naked eye and in 99% cases, the disease can be efficiently treated if detected during its early stages. Women below the 40 year age benchmark have a higher risk of cancer.

    Viagra is a health supplement which is consumed in the oral form to minimize all the signs and symptoms of an erectile dysfunction. Viagra is the generic name for Sildenafil, which is used by men.

    What does research say?

    A medical study has shown that men who frequently use erection-enhancing drugs are 84% more likely to develop melanoma within a period of 10 years. This does not mean that you are bound to get this cancer if you are frequently using an erection enhancing drugs, but it might increase your probability of getting Melanoma.

    Risk Factors

    Viagra when combined with some other medicine often leads to adverse effects which might lead to cancer as well. It is always desirable that you consult your doctor before taking a Viagra in general. Some of the dangerous factors are:

    1 Taking Viagra with nitrate drugs such as nitroglycerin, isosorbide mononitrate, and such others.
    2 If you are experiencing an unreasonably high or low blood pressure
    3 If you have any kind of a liver disease
    4 If you are suffering from a kidney disease that requires dialysis (blood purification process)


    While taking Viagra, you should always consult a doctor near you. Additionally, you should also follow certain precautionary measures like:

    1. You should avoid buying Viagra online, as there is a high probability that it is fake
    2. You should try going for natural alternatives to Viagra. Studies have shown that the medicines with nitric oxide can help you in having a proper and enhanced erection. Additionally, medicines containing L-arginine are also very popular as they help in generating nitric oxide.

    You may not know what open pores are. You may know them as ‘uneven skin’, ‘age spots’, ‘holes on the face’. These can also give rise to smile lines or nasolabial folds. As a Skin Specialist, we often come across patients who are looking for cure ofopen pores on their face. There is no suchdermatological term as “open pores” or there is no standard text book that names open pores as a disorder. Open pores give a dull and irregular appearance to the face since the light rays are reflected unequally from uneven surface of skin having open pores. The below blog will enable you to understand how to identify open pores, why are open pores formed, and what can be done to close open pores.

    What are these Open Pores?

    All of us have pores on the skin. These are oil gland openings; when these openings get abnormally dilated, they are referred to as ‘open pores’. Open pores present as small pit like regions, giving a dimpled look to your skin similar to an orange peel thereby giving a dull, irregular, and aged appearance to the face.

    Open pores are mostly seen on the nose and adjacent cheeks (malar area). In individuals with oily skin, they may be observed on outer part of cheeks & forehead, too.

    Remember, they are not the same as larger pits and craters of acne scars. It might be a possibility that you have an oily skin with black/white heads and may be susceptible to outbreaks of pimples.

    How are they formed?

    Open pores generally commence at the time of puberty; as a result of increased oil secretion from sebaceous/oil glands, which occurs as a result of stimulation of androgen hormone. As an end result these sebaceous glands openings get blocked with dead skin cells & debris. This restricts the flow of increased oil resulting in distension of their opening which is seen as open pores.

    Age spots may be caused by skin aging, sun exposure, or other forms of ultraviolet light exposure, such as tanning beds. You are most likely to develop age spots on the areas of your skin that receive the most sun exposure.

    How to get rid of the open pores?

    There are various treatment options available so as to get rid of open pores. However, there is no concrete evidence to prove the efficacy and response rate.

    5 Unexpected Triggers of Hair Fall

    Your genes may be the most common triggers of hair fall, but in certain cases hair fall can be triggered by a host of other reasons you wouldn’t have thought about. Sometimes these reasons can range from being simple and temporary (lack of essential nutrients in your diet for example) to something more complex and indicative of an underlying health problem. Read on...

    1. Brushing wet hair

    Detangling wet hair (easy at it may seem) is probably one of the most common triggers of hair fall. Wet hair is extremely delicate, and brushing wet hair causes the strands to break, leading to excessive hair fall. Repeatedly doing so can cause your hair to become thinner over time, which may result in visibly less hair on your scalp.

    2. Food poisoning

    Food poisoning can cause an abnormality in your blood circulation, which, as a result, can lead your hair to prematurely enter into a shedding phase. The hair loss that takes place due to this reason is known as ‘diffuse hair loss.’ This type of hair loss usually lasts for a period of 3 months, after which, the hair follicles are replaced by new ones. Hair fall caused by food poisoning is only temporary, and is corrected on its own with time.

    3. Car crashes or any other traumatic events

    When you go through a car crash or any other traumatic incidence for that matter (divorce, death in the family etc), you may experience an extreme form of shock. This can lead to the development of small bald patches on your head, which is known as Telogen Effluvium. Usually, trauma triggers an autoimmune reaction, because of which the white blood cells attack the hair bulb. This causes the hair bulb to enter into the resting phase, which leads to mildly painful hair loss in particular patches. This type of hair fall is reversible.

    4. Food allergies

    Different foods (such as dairy, wheat, soy etc) can cause allergies in different people. Such an allergic reaction can cause your immune system to react violently, consequently making your immune system send signals throughout your body to ward off attacks. This, in very rare cases, can give rise to the condition of Alopecia Areata, as your immune system detects the growth of your hair as foreign attack and sends off signals to destroy hair follicles. This type of hair fall ceases once you stop consuming food(s) you’re allergic to.

    5. General Anaesthesia and Surgery

    Hair fall triggered by general anaesthesia and a major surgery usually shows up 3 months after the surgery has taken place. The combination of general anaesthesia and a major surgery can put your body under heavy physical stress, which can cause alterations in the life cycles of the hairs on your scalp, consequently leading to excessive hair fall. Hair fall caused by this reason is temporary too, and usually your hair will grow back over time.
    Now that you know about the possible triggers of hair fall, you may be in a better position to control your condition and prevent your hair from falling out.

    Here are the top 10 ways to get rid of dark underarms.

    1. Potato
    The mild acidic property present in potatoes is a great natural bleaching agent. Unlike strong bleaching agents, it will not cause skin irritation.

    Simply rub a thin slice of potato on your underarms.
    You can also grate the potato and apply the juice to the affected area, allow it to dry for 15 to 20 minutes and then wash it off with lukewarm water.
    Use either of these remedies twice daily for better and faster results.

    2. Cucumber
    Just like potatoes, cucumbers also have natural bleaching properties to help lighten discolored skin.

    Simply rub a thin cucumber slice on your underarms or grate a cucumber and apply the juice under your arms. Do this once or twice daily until you are satisfied with the results.
    Another option is to extract the juice from a cucumber and mix it with a little turmeric powder and lemon juice. Apply this paste on the affected area. Leave it on for 30 minutes, and then wash it off with water. Repeat this home remedy once daily or every other day for best results.
    3. Lemon
    Lemon works as a natural bleach and a powerful antibacterial and antiseptic agent. This is why lemon is used in the treatment of various skin-related problems including dark underarms. Lemon can dry out your skin, so apply a moisturizer after using these remedies if needed.

    To remove dead skin cells and lighten your underarms, rub a lemon wedge on the skin for a few minutes. Leave the juice on your skin for about 10 minutes and then wash the area thoroughly. For better exfoliation, you can sprinkle a little sugar on the lemon wedge and then use it. Do this a few times a week.
    Another option is to mix a little turmeric powder, honey or plain yogurt in some lemon juice and apply it to your underarms. Leave it on for about 10 minutes and then wash it off. Repeat three or four times a week.
    4. Baking Soda
    Baking soda can be used to make an exfoliating scrub to get rid of dark underarms. This will help remove dead skin cells, which is one of the main causes of dark underarms. It will also help unclog skin pores.

    Mix baking soda and water to make a thick paste.
    Use this paste to scrub your underarms.
    Wash it off and pat dry the area thoroughly.
    Repeat a few times a week.
    You can also apply a light dusting of equal parts of baking soda and cornstarch to neutralize body odor.

    5. Orange Peel
    Orange peels can be used to lighten the skin under your arms, thanks to their skin lightening and exfoliating properties.

    Put some orange peels in the sun for a few days until they dry out completely.
    Grind the dried peels into powder form.
    Mix two teaspoons of powdered orange peels with enough rose water and milk to make a thick paste.
    Gently scrub your underarms with the paste and then leave it on for about 10 to 15 minutes.
    Finally, wash the area with cold water.
    Repeat the process two or three times a week.
    6. Coconut Oil
    Coconut oil is another good option to get rid of dark underarms. Coconut oil contains vitamin E that can help lighten the underarms. At the same time, it will also work as an effective natural deodorant.

    Massage the dark underarms with coconut oil.
    Leave it on for 10 to 15 minutes.
    Wash it off with mild soap and lukewarm water.
    Repeat two or three times daily until you achieve the desired results.

    Come summer and the climatic conditions get harsh in most parts of India. The sun shines bright and soaks moisture from our bodies. While we ensure our body doesn’t dehydrate, or fall sick, we need to give equal amounts of attention to our hair. Hair that is not taken care of in summers, tend to go dry & brittle and are known to fall more than usual. No worries, here are a few crucial steps which if followed, will ensure you needn’t worry later on.

    1) Protect your hair from chlorine - If there is anything to look forward to, in the summers, it is the swim sessions. And pool water is extremely harmful for our hair. It is very important that we ensure that at no point of time our hair is in direct contact with the chlorine water. Always use a swimming cap. This should be practiced by adults and children, alike.

    2) Cover your hair against the sun - In India, the sun shines very bright. In all its glory, it can be really harsh. While we remember to cover our skin, at times, we forget that our hair needs protection too. Keep your head covered. Use a hat, cap or just wrap a rectangular piece of cloth around it. Make sure these things are made of cotton and are airy. Alternatively, use an umbrella.

    3) Oil your hair well - Hair is known to swell during the summers. Oiling your hair is considered to be helpful in keeping the hair follicles intact. If you wish to oil your hair after washing it, go for lighter oil. Have oil massages. They not only allow free blood flow under your scalp, they also strengthen the roots.

    4) Drink plenty of water - It is common knowledge that our bodies dehydrate faster in summer. So ensure you are carrying water with you at all times, and drinking sips throughout the day. You have the choice to drink plain water or detox water, but do understand, plain water cannot be compensated by fruit juice or soda. If you are drinking alcohol, ensure you follow it up with adequate amounts of water.

    5) Switch to gentler shampoo - If your hair is coloured, make sure you use shampoo & conditioner with colour protection. Try to use mild shampoos in the summer. The lesser amount of chemicals used on your hair, the better. Serum doubles as a sunscreen for the hair. Never forget to apply it before stepping out.

    I know more than half the world is suffering from HAIR LOSS. Here i Am giving my best treatment advice for all who are suffering from hair loss.

    How to stop damaging your hair

    In our quest for beautiful hair, we often do things that damage our hair. Damaged hair is fragile, so it tends to break. Hair breakage can leave us with frizzy, unhealthy looking hair. If we continue to damage our hair, we may eventually see thinning hair or even bald spots.

    The good news is that simple changes can prevent further hair damage. On this page, you’ll find 10 common hair-care practices that can damage hair and dermatologists’ tips that can help you to stop damaging your hair.

    10 hair-care habits that can damage your hair
    Washing your hair by rubbing shampoo into the length of your hair

    Changes that can help prevent hair damage:
    Gently massage shampoo into your scalp.
    When you rinse the shampoo from your scalp, let it flow through the length of your hair and resist the temptation to rub it into your hair.
    Skipping the conditioner

    Changes that can help prevent hair damage:
    Use conditioner after every shampoo.
    Dermatologists’ recommendations for swimmers
    Pool chemicals can be hard on your hair. The following can help protect your hair:

    Wear a swim cap.
    Rinse hair immediately after swimming.
    After rinsing your hair, wash your hair with a specially formulated swimmers’ shampoo and follow with a deep conditioner.
    Drying your hair by rubbing it with a towel

    Changes that can help prevent hair damage:
    Wrap your hair in a towel to absorb the water.
    Let your hair air dry.
    Brushing your hair while it is wet

    Changes that can help prevent hair damage:
    Do you have straight hair? Let your hair dry a bit before you gently comb it with a wide-tooth comb.
    Do you have textured hair or tight curls? Always comb your hair while it is damp, using a wide-tooth comb.
    Using a blow dryer, hot comb, or curling iron

    Changes that can help prevent hair damage:
    Let your hair air dry when possible.
    Use the lowest heat setting.
    Limit the time a hot comb or curling iron touches your hair.
    Use these tools less frequently, aiming for once a week — or even less often.
    Applying styling products that offer long-lasting hold

    Changes that can help prevent hair damage:
    Try a hairstyle that does not require this product.
    Pulling your hair back tightly, such as in a ponytail, bun, or cornrows

    Changes that can help prevent hair damage:
    Wear hair loosely pulled back.
    Use covered rubber bands made especially for styling hair.
    Try a different hairstyle that does not pull on your hair.
    Wearing a weave or hair extensions

    Changes that can help prevent hair damage:
    Wear weaves and extensions that are light, so they do not pull.
    Get weaves and hair extensions at a salon that specializes in these services.
    Wear a professional weave or hair extension for 2 or 3 months at most.
    Keep up your scalp hygiene when wearing a weave or hair extension.
    Switch hairstyles, so you don’t always wear a weave or hair extensions.
    Coloring, perming, or relaxing your hair

    Changes that can help prevent hair damage:
    Try to add more time between touch-ups, especially when the air is dry. In the winter, try to stretch the time between touch-ups to every 8 to 10 weeks or longer.
    Have only one service — a coloring, relaxer, or perm. If you want more than one service, perm or relax your hair first, and do it 2 weeks before you color your hair.
    Use conditioner after each shampoo.
    When in the sun, protect your hair by using a leave-in conditioner that contains zinc oxide or wearing a wide-brimmed hat.
    Brushing your hair 100 strokes a day or tugging on your hair to style it

    Changes that can help prevent hair damage:
    Brush and comb your hair only to style it. Hair never needs 100 brush strokes a day. That’s a myth.
    Use a wide-tooth comb, and use it gently to comb your hair.
    Avoid pulling and tugging on your hair as you brush, comb, or style it.
    Remove tangles gently, using a moisturizing conditioner if necessary.
    When to see a dermatologist
    If changing how you care for your hair does not help you see healthier hair, you may want to see a dermatologist. Your hair care may not be the root cause of your problem. Seeing a dermatologist is especially important if you are concerned about thinning hair or hair loss. Most causes can be stopped or treated. The sooner the problem is addressed, the better your results.

    A simple and very effective treatment for ACNE (Pimple) for everyone.
    Just Follow my instructions.

    You can reduce your acne by following these skin care tips from dermatologists.

    Wash twice a day and after sweating. Perspiration, especially when wearing a hat or helmet, can make acne worse, so wash your skin as soon as possible after sweating.
    Use your fingertips to apply a gentle, non-abrasive cleanser. Using a washcloth, mesh sponge or anything else can irritate the skin.
    Be gentle with your skin. Use gentle products, such as those that are alcohol-free. Do not use products that irritate your skin, which may include astringents, toners and exfoliants. Dry, red skin makes acne appear worse.
    Scrubbing your skin can make acne worse. Avoid the temptation to scrub your skin.
    Rinse with lukewarm water.
    Shampoo regularly. If you have oily hair, shampoo daily.
    Let your skin heal naturally. If you pick, pop or squeeze your acne, your skin will take longer to clear and you increase the risk of getting acne scars.
    Keep your hands off your face. Touching your skin throughout the day can cause flare-ups.
    Stay out of the sun and tanning beds. Tanning damages you skin. In addition, some acne medications make the skin very sensitive to ultraviolet (UV) light, which you get from both the sun and indoor tanning devices.
    Using tanning beds increases your risk for melanoma, the deadliest form of skin cancer, by 75 percent.
    Consult a dermatologist if:
    Your acne makes you shy or embarrassed.
    The products you've tried have not worked.
    Your acne is leaving scars or darkening your skin.
    Today, virtually every case of acne can be successfully treated. Dermatologists can help treat existing acne, prevent new breakouts and reduce your chance of developing scars. If you have questions or concerns about caring for your skin, you should make an appointment to see a dermatologist.

    How to Look After Your Skin in Summer
    Summer sun and temperatures are beloved because they provide you with the opportunity to spend more time outdoors doing the things you love. However, the sun and temperatures come at a price and it is your skin that pays that price. Sun damage can lead to premature aging of the skin, wrinkles, marks, dry skin, and even skin cancer over time. The hottest season of the year requires careful thought for your skin even as you enjoy the heat and freedom of summer.

    Look After Your Skin in Summer Step 1

    Understand how the summer sun impacts your skin. It's important to know how the sun's rays impact your skin, especially when you're seeking to cut through the hype on cosmetic labels. The following basics should assist your understanding:[1]
    Ultraviolet A (UVA): The longest wavelength of the sun, this one penetrates the dermis, your skin's deepest layer. Sun damage can activate free radicals and promote skin aging.
    Ultraviolet B (UVB): This wavelength penetrates the skin's upper layer, the epidermis. These rays cause sunburn, allergic reactions and skin cancers. After six times of being burned, the skin has double the risk of developing a fatal melanoma.[2]
    Ultraviolet C (UVC): Generally these rays are filtered by the ozone layer and they're the most damaging rays.
    Scratch Test (ST): Sometimes if you scratch your skin with a back of your heel, the test will reveal your sensitivity.
    Infra-red (IR): This is the "heat" from the sun and too much can negatively impact collagen, elastic and your immune system.

    Wear sunscreen but only after assessing the need and doing your own research. Not all sunscreens are made alike – some provide a physical barrier (minerals) while others provide a chemical barrier that absorbs ultraviolet rays. SPF stands for "sun protection factor" and indicates the length of time you can stay in the sun; you calculate the SPF by the number of minutes you can stay in the sun without burning normally.[3] (For example, if your skin turns red after 10 minutes in the sun, a sunscreen with SPF of 15 should allow you to spend 150 minutes in the sun.) However, concerns have peaked about what is in your sunscreen and just how effective sunscreens really are. Many sunscreens penetrate the skin and add to the chemical overload that your body is already subjected to with daily modern living.[4] There is no consensus that sunscreens work and there is no proof that higher SPF sunscreens are any better than lower level SPF and they may simply contain more chemicals, thereby increasing your exposure. And getting a false sense of security about your ability to stay in the sun all day because you're wearing sunscreen is unhelpful and can result in damaged skin – indeed, some scientists worry that this false sense of security coupled with inferior UVA focused sunscreen use has actually promoted skin cancers in recent times. Thus, "how" you treat sunscreen as a skin protectant is not very important – sunscreen should be used only as one part of your approach to guarding your skin during the summer; it cannot be the only method and it isn't foolproof.
    If sunscreens trigger sensitivities, breakouts and other skin problems for you, switch from chemical sunscreens to mineral sunblocks (zinc oxide and titanium dioxide) to see if this improves things for you.[5][6]
    If you have oily skin, don't use an SPF higher than 20; doing so risks overloading your skin with chemicals and more oil.[7] (Indeed, it's recommended that whatever your skin, you think twice about high SPF values on sunscreen products.)Special sunscreens are formulated for oily skin. Look at sunscreen packages carefully and see if they are labeled "Oil-Free" or "Non-Comedogenic" so they won't clog pores or cause excess oil.
    Unfortunately it isn't as simple as walking into your local drugstore and choosing a sunscreen you like the smell of or the price they're sold at. You do need to do some online research on the chemicals each sunscreen contains and make an informed decision about the brand you choose. See the Environmental Working Group's Skin Deep Cosmetics Database for information about each sunscreen on the market. It is at: http://www.ewg.org/skindeep/ and click on the tab that says "sun". At least you can make an informed decision by doing your own research here; don't trust the manufacturer's claims alone.

    Stay out of the sun between the hours of 10am and 3pm. The hottest part of the day during the summer is the most damaging time. Don't stay out in the sun for long periods of time around the hottest hours; the longer you're outside, the longer your skin is exposed to the radiation. Get your exercise and activities done in the earlier, cooler hours, or in the later, cooler hours of the day.
    Note that some latitudes advise staying out of the sun between 11am and 4pm. Know what is advised for you particular location and err on the side of being cautious either side as well as during the hours suggested.

    Wear protective clothing over your skin. A lot of clothing in outdoor stores and fashion stores has a UV protection rating and some clothes are impregnated with a UV-absorbing colorless dye.[8] The UV protection rating is a good indicator of how clothing can act as an excellent barrier against the sun's rays. Cover up as much skin as you can, using lightweight fabrics when it's really hot and uncomfortable. Choose fabrics that won't itch, scratch, or overheat you and prefer light colors over dark ones, to keep the heat level down.
    Wear a hat. Your facial skin will benefit enormously from a permanent ring of shade over it in the heat of the sun.
    Wear sunglasses to protect your sensitive eye skin (and eyes). Eyes are prone to melanomas and cataracts, and the sensitive skin around your eyes is prone to fast aging.[9]

    Ditch the obsession with a tan. Sunbathing or using a solarium increases your chances of damaging your skin and getting skin cancers. Moreover, sunbathing will add a good 20 years to your age by dehydrating and wrinkling your skin.[10] Do you really want that?
    Be careful with fake tan; these products contain a lot of chemicals that aren't necessarily good for your skin or your whole health. Again, check the EWG Skin Deep website to see how they rate the various products.
    Black skin is vulnerable to sun damage too; Iman says that she is two shades darker during summer than in winter and says that even though you may not be able to see the damage, it is still there.[11]

    Give your skin a break. By watching the weather over summer, you can work out the days when you won't need to slather on the chemicals, such as when it's pouring with rain or it's a very overcast day.[12] Be sure to pop on your hat and cover clothing as usual because UV rays still penetrate the clouds; you can at least allow your skin a break from the sunscreen.
    If you're going on holiday and you're driving, then take your makeup off before you leave as it gives your skin time to breathe.
    Leave your makeup off as often as possible while on vacation. This is a great opportunity to let your skin breathe and be free from the chemicals in cosmetics.

    Rinse skin after swimming. This is especially important when you've been swimming in chlorinated environments as the chlorine can dry out your skin and for some people it can even result in an allergic reaction.[13] Besides, it's a lot nicer to smell neutral rather than of chlorine!
    Look After Your Skin in Summer Step 8.jpg
    Avoid spraying perfume on your skin in the sun. The psoralen in perfume (especially in citrus perfumes) can permanently stain your skin when they react with the sun. During the summertime, it is recommended that you spritz your clothes with your fragrance rather than your skin.[14]
    Look After Your Skin in Summer Step 9.jpg
    Drink plenty of water. Hydrated skin is better skin and it's easy for skin to become parched during the summer months. Dehydration results in dry skin, frown-lines, spots, a sluggish complexion and a lack of "glow".[15][16] Drink water regularly throughout the day, preferably between meals (drinking during meals can dilute the nutrients from food).[17] Water will both hydrate your skin and flush out toxins that can mar your complexion.[18]
    Look After Your Skin in Summer Step 10.jpg
    Eat healthy foods. A healthy skin comes from eating well and summer is the ideal time to make dietary changes for the better. Cut down on sugar and refined processed foods which create unbalanced blood sugar levels and therefore contribute to premature aging.[19] Eat plenty of fruits and vegetables, in salads, steamed, raw, or as part of a recipe dish. Choose from the rainbow of fruit and vegetable colors to ensure that you're getting all the antioxidants and nutrients your skin needs. A diet rich in flavonoids will help to ensure a healthy and glowing skin.[20] And include whole grains in your daily diet too, including the ancient grains.
    Yogurt is a healthy addition to your diet; just be sure it's sugar free and natural.
    No-fat or low-fat diets will cause your skin to dry, wrinkle and age.[21] You need essential fats in your diet to keep your skin moist and supple. The answer is to exclude unhealthy fats (hydrogenated, trans fats, and heat or light damaged fats) from your diet but to keep using healthy fats daily. Nuts and seeds and fresh fish are excellent sources of good fats.[22]

    Examine your skin regularly. At least one a month, perform a "mole patrol" to check for signs of sun damage on your skin. Be especially alert to moles that have changed shape or size or that hurt, itch, or bleed.[23]
    For more instructions, see How to Examine a Mole.

    Not every skin needs moisturizer. If you do use it, and it contains SPF, check the EWF Skin Deep site for comments on its safety. You might also like to consider a moisturizer that contains antioxidants for added help for your skin.
    A water based moisturiser rich in vitamin E will help your skin heal and repair itself from your day out at the park or beach
    While the sun is also an important factor, wrinkles and aging have a large genetic component. An element of realism and acceptance is required when it comes to skin aging. Up to 80% of premature skin aging is the direct effect of the sun.
    If you have dry skin and a dry house, boost the humidity levels indoors over summer to help ease the dryness.
    Stress harms skin;[24] use summer to find new outlets for your stress and to learn ways to overcome stress in your life. Make the most of any breaks you get over summer!

    Note that there are many concerns about a lack of vitamin D due to wearing too much sunscreen and not getting enough sun time. Use your common sense and don't stand in the sun when it's at its most damaging but allow yourself a little sun time each day. It's important not to overdo anything!
    Sun beds can be dangerous and can damage your skin as the rays on a sun bed are much stronger than the sun at midday.
    See your doctor if you have any concerns about the condition of your skin after being in the sun. It is better to be reassured than to be shocked by an ignored skin problem turning out to be untreatable.
    If you have sensitive skin, the sun itself may be a trigger for skin problems, as well as sunscreens, fragrances, cosmetics, etc.[25] It is recommended that you boost your immune system with a multi-vitamin if going on vacation and you have sensitive skin, as you'll be exposed to different foods, sun levels, water, temperatures, and chemicals in the new environment.[26]
