    With changing weather, humidity, fluctuating temperature and pollution, cold and cough is a common ailment. But we can prevent and manage it with the help of some power foods.

    1. Citrus fruits - orange, sweet lime, lemon, amla, grapefruit, pomelo, tangerines are rich source of vitamin c (antioxidant) that is effective in fighting against common cold. Other vitamin c sources include capsicum, green chillies, cabbage, sprouts in raw form.

    2. Garlic - garlic has antiseptic properties that help the immune system protect against the cold virus. It contains allicine, a powerful antibacterial anti-oxidant that kills the cold virus. The oil in garlic is a natural expectorant that breaks up mucus to clear congestion. It also contains vitamin c, sulfur, selenium, and various other enzymes and minerals that help the body fight the common cold.

    3. Ginger - it contains chemicals called sesquiterpenes which are specifically used to target rhinoviruses (the most common family of cold viruses. It helps to stimulate perspiration that cleanses the system and brings down body temperature. It contains antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties which help to boost up the immune system. It acts as an antihistamine and decongestant that helps to ease colds symptoms. It is a natural pain and fever reducer and also a mild sedative.

    4. Herbs, condiments and spices - basil (tulsi), cinnamon (dalchini), clove (laung), whole black pepper (gota kali mirch) are effective against cold and cough due to their antioxidant, antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties.

    5. Liquids - hot/ warm water (a piece of clove may be added to it), hot/ warm milk, green/ white tea, soup, stew keep body hydrated and warm.

    6 common skin problems you suffer from in the hot weather and tips to deal with them

    Summer season is a hard time for not just the body but even your skin. As the temperature soars, the heat becomes unbearable, for both--body and skin. While you've trained your body to fight the heat, and keep cool; the same is needed for your delicate skin too.

    The answer lies in keeping yourself well-hydrated, protecting your skin from sun exposure and reducing conditions open to infection

    Multiple factors combine to make your skin irritable during summers. Along with the heat that puts a lot of pressure, is sweating. However, sometimes dirt and dust clog the sweat ducts of the skin, trapping the perspiration. This can result in itchy rashes, blisters or minibumps. Clothes can make them irritable all the more due to friction.

    Prevent this condition by keeping yourself squeaky clean, if you sweat. Bath twice a day, particularly so, when you end your day. Use an anti-bacterial soap or bath gel. Keep yourself dry as much as possible. Rubbing the affected skin with ice cubes can help soothe the irritation. If the condition persists, meet a dermatologist.

    It is not just your body but also your skin that bears the brunt of dehydration. As we sweat, we continuously lose hydration from the skin. If not sufficiently replenished, this can leave the skin dry, irritated and more prone to sunburn. Your lips may start cracking and dry patches may appear all over it.

    The most logical answer is to drink as much water as you can. Carry a water bottle with you all the time, do not go without sipping once every half an hour. Also add a lot of juices and summer fruits to your intake. Fruits like watermelon which are full of water content are particularly good for the body and skin during summers. You can also seek deep hydrating treatments like hydrating electroporation therapy, oxygen therapy or juvederm refine to pamper your skin.

    The summer sun is so harsh that it can scorch your skin, causing red patches, rashes that give a burning sensation. This happens more in people who have sensitive skin. In simple language, it is the sun burning up your soft and sensitive skin.

    Logically, the only way to protect your skin against this condition is minimise sun exposure. At the same time equally important is to wear a sunscreen religiously. Apply a sunblock cream liberally all over your face, neck and arms 20 minutes before stepping out. Make sure you re-apply the same every four to five hours to ensure continuous protection. It is also advisable for people who have sensitive skin to wear clothes covering as much skin as possible during the day time. Ending your day with an aloe vera gel face pack will cool down the sunburnt skin.

    The sweat makes our skin a magnet to the daily dose of dust, grime and pollution floating in the air, particularly if we spend some time outdoors. This combination of heat and dirt is a perfect recipe for acne and pimples to grow. The dust clogs the skin's pores while the heat gives bacteria a perfect environment to thrive.

    To minimise acne, regular care should be taken to keep the skin clean. You should carry your facewash with you and give your face a quick wash at least thrice in a day or whenever you think it is needed to clean-up. Use a good facial cleanser every evening so that your skin pores are free of dirt; use anti-bacterial face wash; and end your day with a cooling application of multani mitti or sandalwood face pack to contain inflammation. Often acne might need medical attention. So, if your breakouts do not subside, do visit a dermatologist. You may need hormonal correction.

    The hot temperature gives many bacteria and viruses a perfect thriving environment. The bacteria are everywhere, and you cannot even see them. People who use public transport, keep moving in crowded places and are much more prone to come in contact with multiple bacterial infections. Even the bus seat or window you touch with your hand may be carrying bacteria. These hands then touch our face, often resulting in skin infections.

    Try to keep your hands clean and washed most of the times. Carry a handwash and keep washing every couple of hours. If this is not possible use a hand sanitiser. And give up the habit of touching your face with your fingers all the time. Folliculitis is a common condition when the damaged hair follicles get infected by bacteria, resulting in inflammation. To prevent this, wear lose clothes, avoid using swimming pools which are not properly disinfected, and prevent cuts while shaving.

    When exposed to the sun's uv radiation, the skin's melanin reacts by forming a protective shield. The melanin results in dark pigmentation, either uniformly all over or in patches on the skin. The result is what we call skin darkening, tanning or hyper-pigmentation.

    Using a sunscreen of at least 30 spf and reapplying is important, so is wearing sunglasses to prevent dark circles. To undo the effects of tanning, seek procedures like laser skin rejuvenation, chemical peels or microdermabrasion. Your dermatologist will suggest the right procedure for your needs.

    Do you have hair loss or hair shed glass?

    If you've been noticing more hairs on your pillow or hairbrush than normal, you may worry that you have hair loss. You could actually just be shedding more hairs than normal. Yes, there is a difference.

    Hair shedding often stops on its own
    It's normal to shed between 50 and 100 hairs a day. When the body sheds significantly more hairs every day, a person has excessive hair shedding. The medical term for this condition is telogen effluvium.

    Excessive hair shedding is common in people who have experienced one the following stressors:

    Lost 20 pounds or more
    Given birth
    Experiencing lots of stress (caring for a loved one who is sick, going through a divorce, losing a job)
    Had high fever
    Undergone an operation
    Recovering from an illness, especially if had a high fever
    Stopped taking birth control pills
    Most people notice the excessive hair shedding a few months after the stressful event. For example, a new mom can see excessive hair shedding about two months after giving birth. The shedding usually peaks about four months after giving birth. This shedding is normal - and temporary.

    As your body readjusts, the excessive shedding stops. Within 6 to 9 months, the hair tends to regain its normal fullness.

    If the stressor stays with you, however, hair shedding can be long lived. People who are constantly under a lot of stress can have long-term excessive hair shedding.

    Hair loss differs from hair shedding
    Hair loss occurs when something stops the hair from growing. The medical term for this condition is anagen effluvium. The most common causes of hair loss include:

    Hereditary hair loss
    Immune system overreacts
    Some drugs and treatments
    Hairstyles that pull on the hair
    Harsh hair care products
    Compulsion to pull out one's hair
    If you have hair loss, your hair will not grow until the cause stops. For example, people who undergo chemotherapy or radiation treatments often lose a lot of hair. When the treatment stops, their hair tends to regrow.

    If you suspect that a treatment or drug is causing your hair loss, talk with your doctor. Serious side effects can occur if you immediately stop a treatment or drug.

    Other causes of hair loss may require treatment. Many people who have hereditary hair loss continue to lose hair without treatment. A woman who inherits the genes for hereditary hair loss may notice gradual thinning. Men who have hereditary hair loss tend to develop a receding hairline or bald patch that begins in the center of the scalp.

    Treatment helps many people who have hair loss, but not everyone. A dermatologist can tell you what to expect.

    Dermatologist can distinguish between hair loss and hair shedding
    If you are concerned about the amount of hair falling out, you don't need to suffer in silence. You can turn to a dermatologist for help. These doctors specialize in diagnosing and treating the skin, hair, and nails. A dermatologist can tell you whether you have hair loss or excessive hair shedding. Some people have both.

    A dermatologist also can find the cause or causes and tell you what you can expect. Effective treatments options are available for many types of hair loss. The sooner treatment begins the better the prognosis.

    Rosacea: signs and symptoms

    Rosacea causes more than a red face. There are many signs (what you can see) and symptoms (what a person feels) of rosacea.

    Because rosacea has so many signs and symptoms, scientists created 4 subtypes of rosacea. Some people have more than one rosacea subtype at the same time. Each subtype requires different treatment.

    Rosacea: people with this subtype of rosacea, also called etr, often have very sensitive skin.
    Subtype 1: facial redness, flushing, visible blood vessels

    Signs and symptoms

    Flushing and redness in the center of the face. Visible broken blood vessels (spider veins. Swollen skin. The skin may be very sensitive. The skin may sting and burn. Dry skin, roughness or scaling. Have a tendency to flush or blush more easily than other people.

    Acne rosacea: this subtype of rosacea is most common in middle-aged women.
    Subtype 2: acne-like breakouts

    Signs and symptoms

    Acne-like breakouts, usually where the skin is very red. Acne-like breakouts tend to come and go. Oily skin. The skin may be very sensitive. The skin may burn and sting. Visible broken blood vessels (spider veins. Raised patches of skin called plaques 

    Subtype 3: thickening skin

    Signs and symptoms
    Rhinophyma: although rare, rosacea can cause the skin to thicken and have a bumpy texture. When this happens, it is called rhinophyma.
    This subtype is rare. When it does occur, the person often has signs and symptoms of another subtype of rosacea first. The signs of this subtype are:

    Bumpy texture to the skin. Skin begins to thicken, especially common on the nose. When the skin thickens on the nose, it is called rhinophyma (rye-no-fie-ma. The skin may thicken on the chin, forehead, cheeks, and ears. Visible broken blood vessels appear. Pores look large. Oily skin.

    Subtype 4: in the eyes

    Signs and symptoms

    Ocular rosacea: when rosacea affects the eye, it is called ocular rosacea. If rosacea affects your eye, you may need to see an ophthalmologist ( a doctor who specializes in treating eye diseases).
    Some people get rosacea in their eyes. The eyes may have one or more of the following:

    Watery or bloodshot appearance. Feel gritty, often feels like sand in the eyes. Eyes burn or sting. Eyes are very dry. Eyes itch. Eyes sensitive to light. Blurry vision. Visible broken blood vessels on an eyelid. Cyst on the eyelid. A person cannot see as well as before.

    Rosacea can affect quality of life

    Rosacea can affect more than the skin and eyes. Because rosacea is a chronic (long-lasting) skin disease, it can reduce a person's quality of life. Many people report problems at work, in their marriage, and with meeting new people. Surveys and studies report that living with rosacea can cause:

    Feelings of frustration and embarrassment: in surveys conducted by the national rosacea society, 41 percent said their rosacea caused them to avoid public contact or cancel social engagements.

    Worry: people worry that their rosacea will get worse or cause scars. People worry about side effects from medicine used to treat rosacea.

    Low self-esteem: surveys conducted by the national rosacea society found that almost 70 percent of people living with rosacea said that the condition lowered their self-confidence and self-esteem.

    Work-related problems: surveys conducted by the national rosacea society find that when rosacea is severe, 70 percent of people say the disease affects their interactions at work. Nearly 30 percent say that rosacea causes them to miss work.

    Anxiety and depression: living with a skin condition that flares unexpectedly can cause people to believe you have a drinking problem. This can cause anxiety and depression.

    Treatment seems to improve a person's quality of life. Studies show that when people have fewer signs and symptoms of rosacea, their quality of life improves.

    Which sunscreens should I use?

    Choosing a sunscreen isn't as simple as it used to be.

    The next generation of sunscreens is just hitting the market -- including l'oreal's anthelios sx and products containing helioplex -- designed to offer fuller protection against both uva and uvb rays. Given all the new options, how do you know which is the best sunscreen for you?

    Finding the best sunscreen

    Sunscreens help shield you from the sun's dangerous ultraviolet (uv) rays in two ways. Some work by scattering the light, reflecting it away from your body. Others absorb the uv rays before they reach your skin.

    A few years ago, choosing a good sunscreen meant you just looked for a high sun protection factor (spf) -- which rates how well the sunscreen protects against one type of cancer-causing uv ray, ultraviolet b (uvb spf refers to blockage of uvb rays only.

    Research soon showed that ultraviolet a rays (uva) also increase skin cancer risk. While uva rays don't cause sunburn, they penetrate deeply into skin and cause wrinkles. The environmental protection agency estimates that up to 90% of skin changes associated with aging are really caused by a lifetime's exposure to uva rays.

    The new broad-spectrum sunscreens

    So which is the best sunscreen for you? clearly, you'll want a sunscreen with broad-spectrum or multi-spectrum protection for both uvb and uva. Ingredients with broad-spectrum protection include benzophenones (oxybenzone), cinnamates (octylmethyl cinnamate and cinoxate), sulisobenzone, salicylates, titanium dioxide, zinc oxide, avobenzone (parsol 1789) and ecamsule (mexoryl sx).

    Spf 15 or higher for uvb protection. The spf factor rates how effective the sunscreen is in preventing sunburn caused by uvb rays. If you'd normally burn in 10 minutes, spf 15 multiplies that by a factor of 15, meaning you could go 150 minutes before burning.

    For the vast majority of people, spf 15 is fine. But people who have very fair skin, a family history of skin cancer, or conditions like lupus that increase sensitivity to sunlight should consider spf 30 or higher.
    Keep in mind that the higher the spf, the smaller the increased benefit: contrary to what you might think, spf 30 isn't twice as strong as spf 15. While spf 15 filters out 93% of uvb, spf 30 filters out 97%, only a slight improvement.

    Uva protection. There is no rating to tell you how good a sunscreen is at blocking uva rays. So when it comes to uva protection, you need to pay attention to the ingredients.

    Look for a sunscreen that contains at least one of the following: ecamsule, avobenzone, oxybenzone, titanium dioxide, sulisobenzone, or zinc oxide. Any of those should do the trick.

    Ecamsule. One newly approved ingredient that blocks uva is ecamsule. It's been available in europe and canada, as mexoryl sx, since 1993. In the u. S, ecamsule is now sold in l'oreal's anthelios sx products. It isn't cheap. A 3.4 ounce tube -- barely enough for 4 full-body applications -- can run $30.

    Avobenzone. Neutrogena's helioplex isn't really a new ingredient; it's a 'stabilized' version of a common uva-blocker called avobenzone (or parsol 1789). Unless it's stabilized, avobenzone breaks down when exposed to sunlight -- exactly what you don't want in a sunscreen. You'll find stabilized avobenzone in other sunscreens, too, like active photo barrier complex and dermaplex.
    For instance, any brand-name sunscreen that has avobenzone is stabilized. If you want to spend $30 on a bottle of sunscreen, go ahead. But you can get equally good protection for a lot less.
    Titanium dioxide or zinc oxide. Less expensive options for uva protection have been available for a long time. Old sunscreens with titanium dioxide or zinc oxide used to make people look pale and ghostly. But newer manufacturing techniques have resolved the problem.

    Water and sweat resistance. If you're going to be exercising or in the water, it's worth getting a sunscreen resistant to water and sweat.

    But understand what this really means. The fda defines water resistant sunscreen as meaning that the spf level stays effective after 40 minutes in the water. Very water resistant means it holds after 80 minutes of swimming. These sunscreens are in no way water-proof, so you'll need to reapply them regularly if you're taking a dip.

    A brand you like. Personal preference is really important.

    Kid-friendly sunscreen. The sensitive skin of babies and children is easily irritated by chemicals in adult sunscreens, so avoid sunscreens with para-aminobenzoic acid (paba) and benzephenones like dioxybenzone, oxybenzone, or sulisobenzone. Children's sunscreens use ingredients less likely to irritate the skin, like titanium dioxide and zinc oxide. Unlike chemical ingredients, these protect babies' skin without being absorbed.

    For kids 6 months or older, look for a sunscreen designed for children with an spf of 15 or higher. The american academy of pediatrics recommends that babies under 6 months be kept out of the sun altogether.

    Sunscreen for skin problems or allergies. People who have sensitive skin or skin conditions likerosacea may also benefit from using sunscreens designed for children. Go for titanium dioxide or zinc oxide instead of chemicals like para-aminobenzoic acid (paba), dioxybenzone, oxybenzone, or sulisobenzone. If you have skin irritation or allergies, avoid sunscreens with alcohol, fragrances, or preservatives.

    Other sunscreens include moisturizers or other ingredients for people with dry or oily skin. As long as they meet the uva and uvb requirements above, you can give them a try and see what works best.

    How to wear sunscreen

    While choosing the right sunscreen is important, it won't help much if you don't use it daily and correctly. Use these tips from the experts.

    Apply the sunscreen 15 to 30 minutes before you go out in the sun. For woman, sunscreen can be applied under makeup. Use about 1 ounce (or 2 tablespoons) to cover your whole body. Don't skimp. A number of studies show that people simply don't use enough -- and only get 10% to 25% of the benefit. Don't forget the easy-to-miss spots, like the tips of your ears, your feet, the back of your legs, and, if you have one, your bald spot. Since your lips can also get sunburned, use a uv-protective lip balm and reapply it regularly. No matter how long-lasting it's supposed to be, reapply sunscreen at least every 2 hours, and more often if you're sweating or getting wet. Pay attention to the expiration date on the bottle. Sunscreen loses its effectiveness over time. Wear sunscreen whenever you're out during the day -- and not only when it's hot and sunny. On a grey, overcast day, up to 80% of the dangerous uv rays still make it through the clouds. And during the winter, exposure to the sun's rays still can have damaging effects on your skin.

    Sunscreen isn't enough

    Some people have the impression that wearing sunscreen makes them fully protected against the sun's rays. But that's not the case. No sunscreen can do that.

    No matter how high the spf, no matter how thickly you slather it on, sunscreen will never fully protect you, experts say. This misunderstanding can be dangerous: people who think they're safe wind up spending too much time in the sun and raise their risk of skin cancer and other problems.

    Even your clothes may not protect you. The average cotton t-shirt only has a pitiful spf of 4.

    So in addition to wearing good sunscreen, you still need to take other precautions:

    Stay in the shade when possible. Wear sunglasses. Stay inside when uv radiation levels are highest, usually from 10 a. M. To 4 p. M. In the u. S. Wear a broad-brimmed hat. Wear sun-protective clothing, preferably with a uvp (ultraviolet protection rating) on the label. At least wear clothes that are dark and tightly woven, which offer a bit more protection.
