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.

When to Eat Fruits....? By Dr. Sravani Sandhya @ Aura Skin Clinic - Visakhapatnam

You must have heard all your life people telling you to eat fruits, but did you ever think for a minute when to eat?

Here is what I would like to share about fruits and how you could gain good benefits from consuming them…..!

We should eat fruits when we are in a fasting state or when our liver store is empty, so first thing in the morning on an empty stomach or immediately after exercise. Any time aside from this, the body converts the fructose from the fruits to triglycerides. Not only does fruit juice give you 4 to 5 times the amount of fructose you get in one serving of a fruit, it also lacks the goodness of the fruits fiber. So eat your fruit first thing in the morning, not with the breakfast.

Dr Sravani Sandhya Sandhya is a renowned dermatologist and cosmetologist in vizag, offering exceptional service to her patients.

Oat is unique among the cereals for its multifunctional characteristics and nutritional profile.Oat bran especially, is a good source of B complex vitamins, vitamin E, protein, fat, and minerals. Additionally, it is rich in beta-glucan which is heart healthy soluble fiber in particular.

"Colloidal oatmeal" produced by finely grinding the oat and boiling it to extract the colloidal material.


How is colloidal oatmeal prepared?

  
Colloidal oatmeal is a finely ground form of oatmeal that readily absorbs water. It can be prepared by using a food processor, blender or coffee grinder. Oatmeal from a local supermarket is probably the easiest to obtain, however other forms of oats can be used. The oats should be blended or processed dry to an even and fine powder. You can test the resulting powder by adding it to a glass of water and it should quickly turn to a milky white liquid.



How to prepare a colloidal oatmeal bath?


Slowly sprinkle your self-prepared colloidal oatmeal  onto the bath water as it is filling. People commonly use one cup of colloidal oatmeal for a standard bath of water. The amount will vary for different size baths. You should try and use luke-warm water, as a cooling bath can help soothe itchy skin. The bath water should feel silky on your skin and you should aim to soak for about 15 minutes. Prolonged soaking in water can dry out the skin and aggravate itch and eczema. After getting out of the bath, quickly pat the skin dry. Cover the skin with emollient within three minutes.
