Here Comes The Sun, Are you using the right sunscreen. - By Dr Sravani Sandhya, Aura Skin and Hair Clinic

Have you ever wondered if the sunscreen you are using is really working. find out detailed info on how to choose the right sunscreen for your skin.




What is Sunscreen...?

Sunscreens are agents that alter the effects of uv radiation on skin by absorption or reflection of part of the incident radiation

There are different types of sunscreens available in the market and its always a difficult choice to make….

What are properties of sunscreen?

There are two properties in a sunscreen which you should look for SPF (sun protection factor) and substantivity 

What are types of suncreens?

UVA sunscreens
UVB sunscreens
Broad spectrum sunscreen

So which sunscreen can I use?

Your sunscreen should be able to take care of two types of UV light that is both UVA and UVB. Which is a broad spectrum sunscreen.

What does a broad-spectrum sunscreen do?

There are two types of UV light that can harm your skin — UVA and UVB. A broad-spectrum, or full-spectrum, sunscreen is designed to protect you from both. 

UVA rays can prematurely age your skin, causing wrinkling and age spots. UVB rays can burn your skin. Too much exposure to UVA or UVB rays can cause skin cancer. The best sunscreen offers protection from all UV light. 

Only broad-spectrum sunscreens with an SPF of 15 or higher can claim to reduce the risk of skin cancer or prevent early skin aging.

What is SPF and how much SPF should I use?

SPF stands for sun protection factor, which is a measure of how well the sunscreen deflects UVB rays. Theoretically, a sunscreen with SPF15 provides 94% protection from UVB radiation and SPF30 provides 97% protection.Also, keep in mind that sunscreen is often not applied thoroughly or thickly enough, and it might be washed off during swimming or sweating. As a result, even the best sunscreen might be less effective than the SPF number on the bottle would lead you to believe.

Things to remember

Apply generous amounts of sunscreen to dry skin 30 minutes before you go outdoors. 

Use sunscreen on all skin surfaces that will be exposed to sun, such as your face, ears, hands, arms and lips. If you don't have much hair on your head, apply sunscreen to the top of your head or wear a hat.

Reapply sunscreen every two hours — and immediately after swimming or heavy sweating.

Remember that sand, water, snow and concrete reflect sunlight and make it even more important to use sunscreen.

Since UV light can pass through clouds, use sunscreen even when it's cloudy. 

You can apply sunscreen to children as young as age 6 months. Keep younger children in the shade as much as possible. 

Use sunscreen year-round, but don't let any product lull you into a false sense of security about sun exposure. A combination of shade, clothing, sunscreen and common sense is your best bet.

Consult our Dermatologist for more info on sun protection and how to take good care of your skin this summer.

Excessive Sweating : Normal or Maybe Not - by Dr.Sravani Sandhya, Aura Skin and Hair Clinic


Sweating during a workout feels great but Sweating on a date or at the office? Not so much.

Sweating is a natural process, but it can turn dreadful if it goes out of hand. Sweating Excessively for no reason might be a cause for concern.



Hyperhidrosis, which is sweating in excess of that required for normal thermoregulation, is a condition that usually begins in either childhood or adolescence. It can be localized to a particular anatomical area, but the sites most commonly affected are the palms, soles, and axillae.
  •     Axillary  Hyperhidrosis : excess sweating of the  underarms.
  •    Palmoplantar  Hyperhidrosis : excess sweating of the palms and soles.

One treatment includes Botox. Contrary to popular notion, Botox is not just for face but is also helpful in treating Hyperhidrosis. Botox works by blocking the secretion of the chemical that activates sweat glands.

Four Tips To Control Sweating Naturally :

  •        Stay Calm and Yoga
  •        Drink a lot of Water
  •        Drink Milk
  •        Wear natural fibers
Untreated, these problems may continue throughout life. You can take comfort that you are not alone. With some planning and effort, you don't have to feel frustrated and embarrassed anymore.
