Bar Soap vs. Body Wash: Which is Better for You?

MD - Dermatology, MBBS, DDV

Bar Soap vs. Body Wash: Which is Better for You?

The most important part of skincare is keeping your skin cleansed and fresh. But before that, it is imperative to find the right product for the same. Skin type varies from person to person, and hence finding skincare goods most suited to your skin makes all the difference.

Bathing habits directly affect the quality of your skin, which involves picking the appropriate cleanse; i. E. Choosing between a body soap and body wash. Each has a different set of characteristics and comes with its own set of advantages and disadvantages. Let's find out which one is better for your skin.

Why you should choose bathing soap bar:

  •  it is more effective in removing dirt through deep cleansing
  •  it is suited to skin that is excessively oily in nature as it contains ingredients that are highly effective in stripping off excess oil from the skin


Why you should not choose bathing soap bar:

  •  it tends to strip the skin of its natural oils and moisture, making it dry and flaky
  •  it is unhygienic in case of sharing between individuals as soaps tend to accumulate the dirt from your skin due to direct body contact

Reasons to pick a body wash:

  •  it has a very mild and gentle effect on the skin in comparison to soaps
  •  it keeps the skin moisturized by preserving natural oils
  •  it is more hygienic than bar soaps in case of interpersonal sharing
  •  it is the most suitable option for dry skin

Reasons to ditch a body wash:

  •  it contains a large amount of artificial additives and preservatives that can do more harm to your skin than good, giving rise to allergic reactions in some cases

So, who's the winner of the two?

You must certainly base the choice on what's best for your skin type. Body soap is more compatible with oily skin while dry skin is better suited for body wash. A body wash, however, is much more gentle on your skin. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Dermatologist.

Menstrual Cycle in hindi - मासिक धर्म क्या है ?

Menstrual Cycle in hindi - मासिक धर्म क्या है ?

अक्सर हमेशा हंसने खेलने वाली चंचल लड़कियां भी महीने के कुछ दिन दबी दबी दुखी सी शर्माती खुदको छिपाती नजर आती हैं। और इसी वक़्त पर हम गौर करें तो पाएंगे कि घर परिवार के कुछ लोग भी उससे कटे कटे रहते हैं कई चीजों को छूने कई जगह जाने पर पर भी मनाही होती है। जी हां बिलकुल सही समझें आप हम बात कर रहे हैं पीरियड्स की। यह केवल महिलाओं ही नही पुरुषों या यूँ कहें मानव वृद्धि के लिए सबसे अहम घटना है। तो चलिए आज हम जानते हैं पीरियड्स क्या हक़ क्यों आता है इसका सही समय, महत्व आदि। 
पीरियड्स या मासिक धर्म स्त्रियों को हर महीने योनि से होने वाला लाल रंग के स्राव को कहते है। पीरियड्स के विषय में लड़कियों को पूरी जानकारी नहीं होने पर उन्हें बहुत दुविधा का सामना करना पड़ता है। पहली बार पीरियड्स होने पर जानकारी के अभाव में लड़कियां बहुत डर जाती है। उन्हें बहुत शर्म महसूस होती है और अपराध बोध से ग्रस्त हो जाती है। 

पीरियड्स को रजोधर्म भी कहते है। ये शारीरिक प्रक्रिया सभी क्रियाओं से अधिक महवपूर्ण है, क्योकि इसी प्रक्रिया से ही मनुष्य का ये संसार चलता है। मानव की उत्पत्ति इसके बिना नहीं हो सकती। प्रकृति ने स्त्रियों को गर्भाशय ओवरी फेलोपियन ट्यूब, और वजाइना देकर उसे सन्तान उत्पन्न करने का अहम क्षमता दिया है। इसलिए पीरियड्स या मासिक धर्म गर्व की बात होनी चाहिए ना कि शर्म की या हीनता की। सिर्फ इसे समझना और संभालना आना जरुरी है। इस प्रक्रिया से घबराने या कुछ गलत या गन्दा होने की हीन भावना महसूस करने की बिल्कुल आवश्यकता नहीं है। पीरियड्स मासिक धर्म को एक सामान्य शारीरिक गतिविधि ही समझना चाहिए जैसे उबासी आती है या छींक आती है। भूख, प्यास लगती है या सू-सू पोटी आती है।

मासिक चक्र

  • दो पीरियड्सके बीच का नियमित समय मासिक चक्र ( Menstruation Cycle ) कहलाता है। नियमित समय पर पीरियड्स( Menses ) होने का मतलब है कि शरीर के सभी प्रजनन अंग स्वस्थ है और अच्छा काम कर रहे है। मासिक चक्र की वजह से ऐसे हार्मोन बनते है जो शरीर को स्वस्थ रखते है। हर महीने ये हार्मोन शरीर को गर्भ धारण के लिए तैयार कर देते है।
  • मासिक चक्र के दिन की गिनती पीरियड्सशुरू होने के पहले दिन से अगली पीरियड्सशुरू होने के पहले दिन तक की जाती है। लड़कियों में मासिक चक्र 21 दिन से 45 दिन तक का हो सकता है। महिलाओं को मासिक चक्र 21 दिन से 35 दिन तक का हो सकता है। सामान्य तौर पर मासिक चक्र 28 दिन का होता है।

मासिक चक्र के समय शरीर में परिवर्तन 

1. हार्मोन्स में परिवर्तन
 मासिक चक्र के शुरू के दिनों में एस्ट्रोजन नामक हार्मोन बढ़ना शरू होता है। ये हार्मोन शरीर को स्वस्थ रखता है विशेषकर ये हड्डियों को मजबूत बनाता है। साथ ही इस हार्मोन के कारण गर्भाशय की अंदरूनी दीवार पर रक्त और टिशूज़ की एक मखमली परत बनती है ताकि वहाँ भ्रूण पोषण पाकर तेजी से विकसित हो सके। ये परत रक्त और टिशू से बनी होती है।
2. ओव्यूलेशन 
संतान उत्पन्न होने के क्रम में किसी एक ओवरी में से एक विकसित अंडा डिंब निकल कर फेलोपीयन ट्यूब में पहुँचता है। इसे ओव्यूलेशन कहते है। आमतौर पर ये मासिक चक्र के 14 वें दिन होता है । कुछ कारणों से थोड़ा आगे पीछे हो सकता है। 
ओव्यूलेशन के समय कुछ हार्मोन जैसे एस्ट्रोजन आदि अधिकतम स्तर पर पहुँच जाते है। इसकी वजह से जननांगों के आस पास ब्लड सर्कुलेशन बढ़ जाता है। योनि के स्राव में परिवर्तन हो जाता है। जिसके कारण महिलाओं की सेक्सुअल डिजायर बढ़ जाती हैं। इसलिए इस ड्यूरेशन में सेक्स करने पर प्रेग्नेंट होने के चन्वेस बढ़ जाते हैं।
3. अंडा 
फेलोपियन ट्यूब में अगर अंडा शुक्राणु द्वारा निषेचित हो जाता है तो भ्रूण का विकास क्रम शुरू हो जाता है। अदरवाइज 12 घंटे बाद अंडा खराब हो जाता है। अंडे के खराब होने पर एस्ट्रोजन हार्मोन का लेवल कम हो जाता है। गर्भाशय की ब्लड व टिशू की परत की जरुरत ख़त्म हो जाती है। और ऐसे में यही परत नष्ट होकर योनि मार्ग से बाहर निकल जाती है। इसे ही पीरियड्स, मेंस्ट्रुल साइकिल, महीना आना या रजोधर्म भी कहा जाता है। और इस दौर से गुजऱने वाली स्त्री को रजस्वला कहा जाता है।
4. ब्लीडिंग
पीरियड्स के समय अक्सर यह मन में यह मन में यह सवाल आता है की ब्लीडिंग कितने दिन तक होना चाहिए और कितनी मात्रा में होना चाहिए कि जिसे सामान्य मानें। पीरियड यानि MC के समय निकलने वाला स्राव सिर्फ रक्त नहीं होता है। इसमें नष्ट हो चुके टिशू भी होते है। अतः ये सोचकर की इतना सारा रक्त शरीर से निकल गया, फिक्र नहीं करनी चाहिए। इसमें ब्लड की क्वांटिटी करीब 50 ml ही होती है। नैचुरली पीरियड्स तीन से छः दिन तक होता है। तथा स्राव की मात्रा भी अलग अलग हो सकती है। यदि स्राव इससे ज्यादा दिन तक चले तो डॉक्टर से सम्पर्क करना चाहिए।

पीरियड्स से पहले के लक्षण
लड़कियों को शुरू में अनियमित पीरियड्स, ज्यादा या कम दिनों तक पीरियड, कम या ज्यादा मात्रा में स्राव, डिप्रेशन आदि हो सकते है। इसके अलावा पीएमएस यानि पीरियड्स होने से पहले के लक्षण नजर आने लगते है। अलग अलग स्त्रियों को पीएमएस के अलग लक्षण हो सकते है। इस समय पैर, पीठ और अँगुलियों में सूजन या दर्द हो सकता है। स्तनों में भारीपन, दर्द या गांठें महसूस हो सकती है। सिरदर्द, माइग्रेन, कम या ज्यादा भूख, मुँहासे, त्वचा पर दाग धब्बे, आदि हो सकते है। इस तरह के लक्षण पीरियड शुरू हो जाने के बाद अपने आप ठीक हो जाते है। इसलिए उन दिनों में अपने आपको सहारा डैम और मजबूत बनें।

पीरियड्स आने की उम्र 
आमतौर पर लड़कियों में पीरियड्स 11 से 14 साल की उम्र में शुरू हो जाती है। लेकिन अगर थोड़ा देर या जल्दी आजाए तो चिंता न करें। पीरियड्सशुरू होने का मतलब होता है की लड़की माँ बन सकती है। शुरुआत में पीरियड्सऔर ओव्यूलेशन
के समय में अंतर हो सकता है। यानि हो सकता है की पीरियड्सशुरू नहीं हो लेकिन ओव्यूलेशन शुरू हो चुका हो। ऐसे में गर्भ धारण हो सकता है। और इसका उल्टा भी संभव है। यह बहुत महत्त्वपूर्ण है कि पीरियड्स शुरू नहीं होने पर भी प्रेगनेंट होना संभव है इसलिए सावधानी बरतें।

पहले ही किशोरियों को समझाएं 
लड़कियों में शारीरिक परिवर्तन दिखने पर या लगभग 10 -11 साल की उम्र में मासिक धर्म के बारे में जानकारी देकर इसे कैसे मैनेज करना है समझा देना चाहिए। जिससे वे शरीर में होने वाली इस सामान्य प्रक्रिया के लिए मानसिक रूप से भी तैयार हो जाएँ। साथ ही आप लोगों को भी यह समझने की जरूरत है कि पीरियड्स मवं में अपवित्रता जैसा कुछ नहीं है। ये एक सामान्य शारीरिक क्रिया है जो एक जिम्मेदारी का अहसास कराती है। इसकी वजह से लड़कियों पर आने जाने या खेलने कूदने पर पाबन्दी नहीं लगानी चाहिए। पर ध्यान रहे बच्चियों को गर्भ धारण करने की सम्भावना के बारे में जरूर समझाना चाहिए जिससे वे सतर्क रहें। 

पीरियड्स आने पर 
सभी महिलाएं पीरियड्स की डेट जरूर याद रखें जिससे आप पहले ही तैयार रहें। 
इस दौरान खुदको किसी चीज़ से न रोकें नहीं। सामान्य जीवन शैली ही जिएं। बस अगर मौका मिले तो थोड़ा आराम करें।

Hi lybrate-user, I would not recommebd you to go on a ketogenic diet. If you want to maintain a long term health plan, try to keep your choices as simple and easy to maintain. If you have a fatty liver, switch to eating more of fruits and vegetables. If you want to burn tummy fat, there's no magic potion available. You have to engage in some form of physical exercise to maintain it lifelong!

12 Symptoms Of Ectopic Pregnancy

12 Symptoms Of Ectopic Pregnancy

What is ectopic pregnancy??

Ectopic pregnancy is also known as tubal pregnancy, is a complication wherein, the fertilised eggs attach themselves outside the uterus. In most cases, it causes severe internal bleeding and serious infections. It is a very serious condition that warrants prompt medical attention as soon as it is diagnosed. Mostly, in this type of pregnancy, the fertilised egg attaches itself to the fallopian tube inside the body; the reason why it is known as tubal pregnancy. In rare cases, the egg might attach itself to the cervix, ovary or parts of the abdomen.  

Symptoms of ectopic pregnancy include:

  1. Appendicitis
  2. Salpingitis (inflammation and infection of one’s fallopian tubes)
  3. Rupture of the corpus luteum cyst (a kind of ovarian cyst)
  4. Miscarriage
  5. Urinary tract infection
  6. Severe abdominal pain
  7. Excessive vaginal bleeding
  8. Pelvic pain
  9. Nausea and vomiting
  10. Peritonitis (inflammation of the membrane that lines the abdomen cavity)
  11. Rupture in the fallopian tubes which can lead to fainting and excessive pain
  12. Pain on one side of the body

Treatment for ectopic pregnancy
This complication in pregnancy can be diagnosed by an ultrasound as the doctor sees the growth on the fallopian tube. A pregnancy test or a pelvic exam also helps in detecting ectopic pregnancy. If not treated on time, ectopic pregnancy can prove to be fatal.
 
Listed below are a few treatment options for ectopic pregnancy:

  1. A particular medication known as methotrexate is used to end an ectopic pregnancy.
  2. In some cases, one might need surgery to get rid of the pregnancy. In certain complicated cases, it might be necessary to remove the tube with the foetus. This kind of surgery which removes the foetus and the tube is calling salpingectomy. The surgeon usually makes a small incision near the navel and removes the tube using a laparoscope.
  3. Having an abortion due to this complication can be heartbreaking and emotionally distressing for the mother as it is just like an abortion where the entire tissue is removed from your fallopian tube. To get over the trauma of losing a baby, you could join pregnancy loss groups or avail help from a therapist. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Gynaecologist.

Best Way to Handle Oily Skin in Summers!

MD - Skin,VD & Lepxsy, MBBS
Dermatologist, Rewari
Best Way to Handle Oily Skin in Summers!

Oily skin is a condition that can be characterized by shine on the skin and a large number of pores. The oil in question is a result of overactive sebaceous glands that produce excessive sebum. This can result in acne and blackheads. Summer is a time of the year where skin problems due to oily skin are worsened by factors such as sweat and dust. So proper skin care is necessary in order to negate the effects of oily skin.

There are multiple ways to handle this condition in summers:

1. Using cleansers - Proper cleaning of skin is a very important step in lessening the effects of oily skin. Harsh cleansers have an opposing effect as they facilitate secretion of oil, so a mild cleanser is usually the best option. Some cleansers may contain ingredients that irritate the skin, so care is advised in selecting a proper one.

2. Hydration and food - Keeping the body well hydrated in summers combined with a diet free of greasy, oily food and less fats can help in reducing the effects of oily skin.

3. Using masks to clear the face - Masks such as clay masks, yogurt, and baking soda can help in cleansing the skin by clearing the oil. It should be noted that these treatments should not be overdone as they can cause the skin to dry up too much and over secrete oil.

4. Skin moisturizers - People often have this notion that oily skin does not require moisturizer application. Selecting a moisturizer that is fit for oily skin and using it will help moisturize the skin and keep it healthy.

5. Sunscreen - Sunscreen is a necessity during summers, and the sunscreen you choose should be specifically for oily skin in order for it to work effectively. Application of sunscreen can help prevent the UV rays of the sun from penetrating the skin and cause complications.

6. Dermatological treatment - In case of severe oiliness, treatments such as chemical peels and creams laced with tretinoin can help. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Dermatologist.

Myths And Misconceptions About Fitness!

MBBS
General Physician,
Myths And Misconceptions About Fitness!

Everyone wants a slim suave figure and heads to a gym to work out and get trim. Fitness has its own share of myths and misconceptions

Almost everyone heads to a gym these days. If the guys want six pack abs the girls want well toned hips and thighs. Working out is good but there are several myths and misconceptions which shroud fitness. Dr. Earnest vijay, fitness director, o2 health studio dispels some of these myths.

Myth 1
Doing crunches helps to get six pack abs

This is not true. Men do crunches for abs and women do for well toned hips and thighs. The truth is that crunches only work on the muscles and not on the fat. If you see a surya or a hrithik roshan with six pack abs remember they haven’t had a sip of water for over 24 hours to get that look! so crunches alone don’t help to get six packs.

Myth 2
Spot reduction- does it work?

 People come to the gym saying they want spot reduction. They want to lose weight only on the arms not on the face, only on the face not on the cheeks etc. The truth is that you cannot choose and loose in exercise. Fat loss is an overall phenomenon is exercise and also based on genetics. We say what is the first to come is the last to go! so spot reduction doesn’t work for sure!

Myth 3
Crash dieting- how effective?

People follow crash diets and they do loose weight but it piles back in no time. These crash diets have no proper balance of proteins, fats and carbohydrates. Most of them are high in protein and are un healthy because they don’t give the body the required minerals. It is important to consult a dietician and take the recommended dietaty allowances according to the body weight and it should be a plan that can be followed for a life time.

Myth 4
Yo yo effect

 There is a huge misconception that you lose weight when you are exercising in the gym and when you stop gymming you gain back double the weight. This is not true. You won’t gain more if you maintain a certain level of physical activity even outside the gym and also continue to follow the diet. It is only when you don’t burn the calories you consume it gets stored as fat and tend to put on weight.

Myth 5
Weight training builds muscles

Many women don’t do weight training because they think they will build up muscles. The truth is that women have no hormones which can cause muscles to build up. Weight training actually helps to strengthen bones and prevent osteoporosis in women.

Myth 6
Do you need supplements?

Proteins and fat burners are not required if you are eating healthy and working out well. The recommended protein requirement is 1 gram of protein per kg body weight per day and this we get from our diet itself. Fat burners cause adverse effects to the cardiovascular and nervous systems.

Myth 7
Don’t take water while working out?

Water is needed before, during and after exercise. The best is to weight yourself before the work out and after the work out and consume as much water as the weight you have lost during the work out. It is important to remain well hydrated to prevent cramps, heat strokes and it helps you perform better in the gym.

Myth 8
Yoga helps for weight loss

Fitness involves a cardio vascular fitness, muscle strengthening, flexibility and body composition and there is a specific exercise for all. Yoga helps only the flexibility, stress and improves the breathing capacity. One needs to do specific exercises for specific goals and yoga alone may not help for weight loss.

Myth 9
Exercise causes over eating

Moderately intense exercise does not cause over eating. This means you don’t go out of breath while exercise. Only people who over do it, get completely breathless end up over eating after exerciseing.

Myth 10
Skipping meals- does it help?

It is said that those who skip breakfast to lose weight usually end up eating 100 calories more than required for lunch. It is important to break meals into 5 portions and have balanced quantities of carbohydrates, proteins and fats in them. A well balanced meal is important to keep the body healthy.

So all you fitness freaks out there…. Make sure you eat healthy, exercise well, don’t believe in myths that misguide you! a simple work out, a healthy diet and a positive frame of mind can all get you to the figure you always dreamt of!
