Sunscreen- Why It's Necessary?

Nidhi Sharma
Excessive exposure to direct sunlight is potentially harmful and it can result in Sunburn if a person doesn't use suitable sunscreen. The Ozone layer is depleting and your body needs shielding from harmful rays. Sunlight contains Ultraviolet(UV) rays. Ultraviolet Radiation is the number one cause of Skin Cancer, Premature Ageing of the skin, and uneven pigmentation of the skin. Sun protection is guarding your body from the adverse effect of sunlight. Sunscreens are products used to reduce amount of UVA and UVB that's is absorbed by the skin. Prolonged Sun exposure gives no extra production of necessary Vitamin D, in fact it exposes the skin to the harmful effects of Ultraviolet radiation.

All skin types are prone to these effects, though Skin Cancer is most common in fairer skin types. However, Sunscreen should be used by everyone as a part of one's daily skin care regimen. Everyday application of sunscreen can slow or temporarily prevent the development of wrinkles and sagging skin. Sunscreens are available in many forms- spray, gel, lotion etc. A sunscreen should also be Hypoallergenic and Non Comedogenic so it does not cause a rash or clog the pores, which can cause acne. Non Comedogenic sunscreens are suited for oily and combination skin types. 

It is advised that you generously apply a water resistant sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30 to all exposed skin 15 to 30 minutes before sun exposure and re-apply approximately every few hours, even on cloudy days, and after swimming and sweating. Wearing a hat with a brim and anti-UV sunglasses can provide protection against UV radiations entering the eyes.

Make sure you do not apply expired sunscreen lotion to your skin as it has literally fallen apart, so the formulation no longer works as a sun protectant. In addition, it can cause skin irritation.

I hope its does convince you to always wear sunscreen before going out in sun.

Benefits of Ginger for Hair Care

Ginger is a common staple ingredient in our kitchen, but who knew that it
has got surprising benefits. It is known to have a long list of health benefits. Ginger is not only beneficial for your health but for your hair too!  In India where Ayurveda is trusted for healing diseases and health problems, it highly recommends the use of Ginger for hair growth treatment.

Benefits of Ginger:

  1. Ginger has Vitamins, zinc, phosphorus, etc which helps in giving sheen to your hair.
  2. Pollution and excessive heat can cause damage to the hair follicles which results in split ends. Therefore ginger can be used for the treatment of damaged hair follicles.
  3. Dandruff is the most common problem among men and women. Ginger oil is very effective to get rid of dandruff naturally. You can mix olive oil with ginger oil and apply it on the scalp and leave it overnight.
  4. People, especially men, have a higher tendency to lose hair as they age. Hair loss can dramatically change how a person looks. If you want your hair to grow back, you must try using ginger. Ginger is rich in fatty acids which helps prevent the thinning of hair. It has the natural ability to stimulate blood flow to the scalp. Thus it stimulates the hair follicles and encourages growth. You can make a hair mask by grating 1 tbsp ginger into a small bowl. Now add 1 tbsp of olive oil or jojoba oil to it and mix it well. Massage on your scalp using this mixture in circular direction. Rub it with your finger tips for 5 minutes. Leave it on your hair for minimum of 30 minutes. You will start to feel the warmth. Now wash it off with a shampoo.
