And we know despite all the fun, food and excitement there is one worry that is playing on your mind – How do you take care of your skin and still not lose out on the fun. It indeed is a genuine concern considering the amount of chemicals and other harmful products that will be rubbed on your delicate skin. But trust us when we say that we can help you reduce the harmful effects to a great xtent. Just follow the following simple steps before you shout your lungs out – “HOLI HAI”. While you are busy trying to sort the old clothes to look for what you want to wear, allow us to remind you that you must choose a dress that helps you cover most of your body, things like polo t shirts or dresses with full sleeves and trousers, leggings or denims. This will ensure less damageable area. Apply generous amounts of cold cream, body oil, olive oil, baby oil or such products that will keep your skin greasy.

Healthy Hair Talk

Hair issues are very common these days. There are several issues that we all face but are unaware about the reasons. It is important to understand the causes so that we can ensure healthy hair for everyone. Hair fall:For a woman there is nothing more disheartening than having to face hair fall everyday. Whether it is her comb or the shower drain or the pillow with loose strands of hair, everything suddenly becomes hostile if she is suffering from hair fall. Most of the women start facing hair fall from the age of 25 onwards and 40% of women have visible hair loss by the time they are age 40. The major reason for hair fall is lack of iron in the body. Iron rich food like beans, red meat, green leafy vegetables etc. will definitely help in easing the concern while helping the body get required iron. Intake of multivitamins is also recommended. Itchy scalp:The scalp has its own way to nourish our hair. It produces natural oil that nourishes and conditions the hair. If the scalp stops producing this oil, the scalp tends to become dry and thus result in itchy scalp. The reason for the scalp to not produce natural oil is lack of beta carotene. This can be tackled by eating pumpkins, carrots, spinach, orange. Dandruff: Excessive oily scalp results in dandruff in the hair which is caused by yeast overgrowth in hair. Rely on very good anti dandruff hair products and avoid over moisturizing your hair and take vitamin B6 which is found in liver and egg yolk. Loss of natural hair color: Excessive exposure to sun can bring dryness to the hair and loss of their natural color. Hair products rich in SPF should be used to protect hair from damage from the sun. Also eating foods rich in Vitamin E should be enhanced. Things like almonds, spinach, pine nuts, avocado, papaya, wheat etc. must be made a part of the daily diet. Greying of hair: Ageing is no more the only reason for greying of hair. Other reasons like lack of Vitamin C and E, zinc and copper can also cause this concern. These help in the metabolism involved in giving hair its natural color and hence their intake should be ensured. The issue can be genetic or even related excessive stress and tension. Thinning of hair: The main component of hair is protein. Lack of protein can cause hair to be dry, weak and thin. A diet rich in proteins like meat, milk, cheese, pulses etc. are highly recommended. Reduced or no hair growth: On an average hair should grow at...

Disrupt Winter Eruptions

Whether you are acne prone or not, do not try your summer acne treatments on your winter acne. The two require completely different treatments, and your summer ones would be too harsh for use in winter. Book an Appointment for Acne Treatment Enrich Salons tells you what causes winter acne, and how to lessen or even completely remove them. Read on. Your very summer care routine could be the cause of acne in winter. The cold and dry air could also be to blame. Entering a warm home from a chilled outdoors will cause even greater dryness. Using drying out cleansers will dry out your acne, but will cause your skin to produce even more oil to compensate for it. This oil may clog your cleansed pores and make matters worse. A horrible vicious cycle, right? Wrong. In winter your skin must be dry as well as moisturised to keep away the bacteria that thrive on flaking skin. Contradictory? Not exactly. We will tell you how. Use a gentle cleanser, which will not make your skin dry to the point of harshness. Clean your face once in the morning and once at night, and not more than that. As mentioned above, avoid strong topical acne treatments. They are high in benzoyl peroxide or salicylic acid, which will dry out your acne but cause your skin to rehydrate and clog pores. You definitely don’t want that as clogged pores only means more acne! Try the milder topical treatments to see if they suit you. Moisturise as you did in summer, but now use light moisturisers. Which will keep the dryness out of your skin and yet not clog your pores. Moisturisers that use natural ingredients tend to be light. If you feel you skin is still too dry, use a slightly heavier moisturiser, but only at night. Book an Appointment for Acne Treatment This might surprise you, but change your pillow cases more often than you did in summer. At least once a week. Maybe more often if you are more acne prone than normal. This is because oil from your skin and hair creates a layer on your pillow cases that can lead to more breakouts. Avoid touching your face often specially if your skin is dry, as this transfers the bacteria from your hands to your face, which thrive on dry skin. Last, but not at all the least, drink plenty of water. No better way to hydrate your skin without clogging pores while keeping your whole body healthy inside...
