To maintain the skin health and reduce the dry skin condition follow this - 1.Bathe with gentle soaps. If possible use some natural ingredients like gramflour, turmeric mixed with some milk to bathe daily. This does not wash your skin off the natural oils. 2.Keep your bath short and do not use hot water to bathe. Use only lukewarm water. 3.Apply Vitamin E oil or warm olive oil on the body after bathing. You can also use a good moisturiser. 4.Cocoa butter mixed with wheat germ oil is also very good at maintaining the skin health. 5.You can mix some oils like – Sesame, olive, virgin coconut oil, wheat germ oil to apply before going to bed. 6.Consume diet that is rich in vitamin E, omega 3 and 6 and other skin friendly vitamins like vitamin E and A. Eat almonds, walnuts, flaxseeds, sesame seeds to maintain skin health. 7.Keep yourself hydrated. Drink atleast 8-10 glasses of water to keep your skin soft and supple.

•Depression is a major public health problem as a leading predictor of functional disability and mortality. •Optimal depression treatment improves outcome for most patients. •Most adults with clinical significant depression never see a mental health professional but they often see a primary care physician. •A non–psychiatric physician 50% of times misses the diagnosis of the depression. •All depressed patients must be enquired specifically about suicidal ideations. •Suicidal ideation is a medical emergency •Risk factors for suicide are psychiatric known disorders, medical illness, prior history of suicidal attempts or family history of attempted suicide. •The demographic reasons include older age, male gender, marital status (widowed or separated) and living alone. •About 1 million people commit suicide every year globally. •Around 79% of patients who commit suicide contact their primary care provider in the last one year before their death and only one-third contact their mental health service provider. •Twice as many suicidal victims had contacted their primary care provider as against the mental health provider in the last month before suicide. •The risk of suicide increases with increase in age; however, young adults and adolescents attempt suicide more than the older. •Females attempt suicide more frequently than males but males are successful three times more often. •The highest suicidal rate is amongst those individuals who are unmarried followed by those who are widowed, separated, divorced, married without children and married with children in descending order. •Living alone increases the risk of suicide. •Unemployed and unskilled patients are at higher risk of suicide than those who are employed. •A recent sense of failure may lead to higher risk. •Clinicians are at higher risk of suicide. •Major risk for suicidal attempts is in psychiatric disorder, hopelessness and prior suicidal attempts or threats.

Hello lybrate-user, Eat adequate amount of protein. Your hair is made up mainly of proteins. Eat eggs, cottage cheese, chicken, soya, lentils, whole grains. Vitamin C, Zinc and Vitamin B are other important nutrients for great hair health. So include lot of fresh fruits, vegetables and whole grains in your daily diet. Next important step is to follow good hair care - Oiling your hair with a mixture of oils like olive, sesame, coconut and castor oil keeps provides moisture to your hair and prevent them from drying and breakage. Once in a week apply a good hair mask. You can mix and prepare different types of masks using eggs, green tea, olive oil, milk, gooseberry, thyme, chamomile etc. Condition your hair using organic Apple Cider Vinegar, Rosemary tea once in a while.
