Screen from the sun!

Screen from the sun!

With the mercury levels going up we are all trying to find reasons to stay indoors and protect our skin from all the damage caused by the sun. Most of us resort to sunscreens without putting much thought to process. Some of us just buy any sunscreen which is available over the counter or go by the recommendation of the seller. But before you go sunscreen shopping for this season, there is a checklist that we want you to consider. There are many options available such as creams, gels, lotions and milk all claiming to protect the skin from the sun. However what matters the most is the type of your skin, the suitable solar protection, which part of the body is going to be exposed and for how long. First things first – Decide whether you need a sunscreen or a sun block. For those who did not know, yes there is a difference. As the name suggests, a sun screen will give your skin a screen against the sun. However, a sun block will block the sun rays completely. In general terms, a sunscreen is good to use on a routine basis. But if you are going to be exposed to the sun for an extended period of time then you must consider picking up a sun block. Protection against UVA as well as UVB rays is a must. Any exposure to sun definitely causes serious and sometimes irreversible damage to the skin. UVA rays cause wrinkles while UVB rays cause more serious damage like sunburn. Protection from UVA rays is offered by most of the sunscreens but this time look for a product that offers protection from UVA as well as UVB rays. What is a PA rating? It is the protection against UVA rays. This can be figured out by PA ratings mentioned on the label such as PA+ or PA*, PA++ OR PA**or PA+++ PA***. More the rating, higher is the protection provided. What is the correct Solar Protection Factor (SPF) for me? This is the most common yet an unanswered question when it comes to choosing a sunscreen. All sunscreen labels mention the SPF rating. While it is true that higher the SPF better is the protection, one cannot be looking for a 100 SPF. The correct way to select the one that suits you is by knowing the activity you are indulging in and the type of the skin. If you are going trekking or spending a day at the beach, go for a 50+ and if it is an ordinary routine you may select any SPF from 15+ to 50+. It...

Winter care for your nails

Winter definitely seems to be the best time to get cosy in the warm interiors of your home or to grab a coffee and your favourite book beside the fireplace or to simply cuddle up in your blanket and gossip all night long with your loved one. But does your skin feel the same? Do your nails enjoy the winters? With the chill in the air during the winters, not only does the skin become dry and sensitive, the nails also find it difficult to go strong. With every drop in the temperature, the nails become more sensitive and brittle making them easy to chip and break. Studies reveal that hands and feet are the most ignored parts of our body. Taking care of your hands and feet doesn’t only include moisturizing. It is a lot more than that can keep them supple. The best way to nourish your nails is to moisturize your hands and feet well. The exposed areas of hands and feet need extra care and attention. Simple things like drinking enough water, keeping a good moisturizer handy and applying it regularly makes a lot of difference. It helps retain natural oils in the skin. While applying creams and oils make sure to rub some on the cuticles and nails to keep them hydrated. Make this a daily practice. Your nails need to breathe. So take long breaks from nail paints. The chemicals in the nail paints and removers cause dryness in the nails. Applying nail paint too frequently may result in de-coloration of your nails making them look dull and unclean. Include proteins in your diet as it nourishes your nails too. Avoiding warm or hot water to wash hands and feet is also advisable since it steals the essential natural oils. Similarly, avoid long hot water baths. It is very important to keep your feet happy since they work hard all day long. Before going to bed make sure you wash your feet and dry them up properly. To retail natural oils and moisture, apply a moisturizer or oil generously and cover them up with a pair of socks.

Winter ready nails

Winter ready nails

We all know the perfect regime for the winters to keep our skin and hair protected. But do we know enough to keep our nails happy during the winters? Not many care for the nails. They need equal attention too. Everything you do may cause a lot of damage to the nails – be it applying nail paint to using nail paint removers to hand sanitizers to washing dishes to hot showers to just about everything you do. It makes them brittle and chip of. Moisturize your nails well especially after shower. Make sure you apply moisturizer on the nails and cuticles even if you are wearing nail paint. Moisturizers with urea, phospholipids or lactic acid help a great deal. Keep the moisturizer handy so that it becomes convenient to apply and reapply as many times as required. Did you know that moisturizers may also cause dryness but the ones that are scented. Instead try to get the ones that are non-scented. Thus pick up the right one. You ca also protect your cuticles by applying lip balm on them and thus prevent them from chipping. When you are exposed to dry cold winds, wear gloves that help retain the moisture in your nails. You may also have to watch out the number of times you use the nail polish remover especially if it contains acetone. This could cause dryness in your nails.Avoid using it more than once in a week. Biting or peeling your nails and picking your cuticles is an absolute NO. Keeping your body hydrated in winters is as important as keeping it hydrated in winters too. Drink at least 8-10 glasses of water every day. This will replenish the lost moisture in your body. Do you know that your nails need to breathe too. Every now and then leave them unpainted. The chemicals in the nail paint can make your nails weak and thus easily breakable. Along with keeping your nails clean, try to keep your nails short. Keeping them slightly rounded will also help prevent frequent breakage as well as make them look good and neat. Wet nails are more prone to breaking. Thus avoid filing your nails when they are wet. Also while filing be sure to file in one direction only. Filing from both directions can make them break and chip often. Damage caused by household chores like chemicals in detergents and soaps can be avoided by use of gloves. Preferably use rubber gloves while attending to these chores. A well balanced diet does help your mind, body and soul. It does just the same for the nails. Make sure you have...
