Summer often brings in a host of problems, the scorching heat can sometimes burn and tan your skin. The humidity can cause you to sweat, making your skin accumulate grime, dirt and increase your chances of getting skin infections. Avoiding the sun by staying indoors or using an umbrella is a good option, but not always a practical possibility. According to Ayurveda, summer is the season when the sun is strong and increases heat in the body, which is one of the main causative factors of skin problems. So you not only need to beat the outside heat, but find a way to keep your body cool from the inside heat too. Some of the common problems in summer include sunburn, redness, irritation, rashes and acne outbreaks. Here are some ways Ayurveda can help:
Start by knowing your skin type in Ayurveda:
- Vata skin: This is characterized by dry, thin, delicate skin that is cool to touch and easily gets dehydrated. It can be flaky and has a tendency to age faster.
- Pita skin: This is characterized by skin that is fair, sensitive, soft and warm. It is prone to freckles and moles and can break into rashes, acne or sunspots when out of balance.
- Kapha skin: It tends to have all the qualities of water and earth - it can be oily, thick, pale, soft, cool and more tolerant of the sun. On the flip side, people with kapha skin may have dull complexion, excessive oil, pimples and suffer from water retention.
- Combination types: Can include Vata-Pitta (both dry and sensitive) Kapha-Pitta (oily and sensitive) and Vata-Kapha (dry with some oily zones).
Ayurveda tips you must follow
- Go for aloe vera sun screen: If you can't avoid the sun, then the next best thing to do is protect yourself. According to ayurveda, increased exposure to hot, sharp and penetrating rays of the sun causes Pitta Dosha and prolonged exposure also leads to increase in Vata, which causes drying of skin. To prevent this, buy a good quality aloe vera sunscreen.
- Try herbal tea for hydration: During summer, it goes without saying that you need to stay hydrated throughout the day with a good 8 glasses of water. But other than that, you can up your intake of warm liquids like herbal tea made of ginger and lemon which will keep you digestion healthy and skin glowing. A number of flavored herbal teas are available in the market too. From peach to hibiscus, each flavor offers a good set of benefits.
- Try herbal deep oil massage: Time to take your skin's hydration to the next level. An oil massage is the best remedy for dry skin. Apricot oil applied 2-3 times a week at night can make your skin smooth and supple. Turn on the "heat" by asking your partner to give you a full oil massage which can improve blood circulation, lymph drainage and your romantic life for sure.

Many aspects contribute to the increasing degree of hair fall. First, you don’t give your body all the essential nutrients which can help in making the hair roots stronger. Also, there are lifestyle hazards as well. The shampoo that is used to keep hair clean and free from dandruff attacks, normally contains sulfate which in turn makes hair fall worse. It is essential to give the body nutrients which are used to maintain healthy hair and prevent hair loss. Two such nutrients are grape seed extract and biotin:
Benefits of Grape Seed Extract:
Grape seed is known to help fight hair fall by keeping up the optimum level of hair growth stimulating hormones in the human body.
It helps in increasing circulation of blood and oxygen in the hair follicle so that the hair root strengthens with the passage of time.
It also works as a wonderful anti-oxidant that promotes anti-ageing benefits as well as protect hair cells from damage caused by oxidation, which in turn, helps in allowing your tresses to stand firm and last longer before they fall off.
Benefits of Biotin:
Biotin strengthens hair roots by breaking down fats and amino acids as per the body’s requirement which reduces the breakage of hair & prevents split ends.
It increases the elasticity of hair which minimizes hair breakage and helps strengthen and thicken hair.
Biotin also encourages growth of hair and skin cells.
When our lifestyle doesn’t allow our hair to get the required nutrition, it is imperative that you should consider helping the situation and this is where the role of the HAiROOTZ soflets comes to the fore.
How does HAiROOTZ help in fighting hair loss?
HAiROOTZ soflets contain a wealth of essential minerals and vitamins such as selenium, iron and zinc on the one hand and biotin, folic acid and calcium pantothenate on the other.
These easy to swallow soflets if taken regularly for about 3 to 4 months, will provide your hair with the nutrition which it otherwise lacks and you will see that your hair has become much shinier and healthier than before.
Although genetics, pollution and harmful UV rays play an important role in making your tresses weaker and more prone to breakage, with HAiROOTZ soflets, you will be able to fight back these common hair problems, especially hair fall so that you can flaunt your hair without having to worry about thinning hair or going bald.
Hair fall is influenced by a number of factors including a poor diet and an unhealthy lifestyle. Correcting your diet can greatly reduce hair fall and improve the quality of your hair. However, in some cases, even with a better diet, your body may not get the required amount of vitamins and minerals and due to the hectic demands of our lifestyle we are unable to focus on our health. This is where supplements come in and help restore nutritional balances.
HAiROOTZ is a balanced combination of essential vitamins and minerals such as iron, copper, biotin, grape seed oil and proteins that help keep hair healthy. Thus it nourishes the hair follicles and strengthens the roots. These minerals also help make the hair more elastic and thus prevent breakage.
How does HAiROOTZ work?
Biotin : The biotin plays an important role in strengthening hair roots by breaking down fats and amino acids as per the body’s requirement. The breakdown of fatty acids reduces the breakage of hair and prevents split ends.
Grape Seed Extracts : Grape seed extracts are rich in flavonoids and vitamin E which play an important role in detoxifying the body and reversing signs of premature aging such as greying of hair and hair fall. The extracts also help in lowering the amount of hormones which cause hair fall and stimulate the hair follicles. Vitamin E rich grape seed extracts have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties that help prevent hair fall. Additionally, grape seed extracts also help improve blood circulation and hence ensure the hair roots receive adequate nutrients.
How to use HAiROOTZ?
HAiROOTZ is available in the form of easy to swallow soflets that are water soluble and are easy to digest. Once the gelatinous shell is dissolved the nutrients inside it are absorbed by the circulatory system and transported to the scalp. However, do not expect instantaneous results from this treatment. These nutrients work gradually to nourish the hair and repair damage caused by deficiencies. For the results to be visible, you must take one HAiROOTZ soflet once a day for a minimum of three to four months.
