Importance of a Balanced Diet for Hair

 

Sammy was frustrated with her hair pulling one strand here and the other
strand there. Oh, those frizzy, dry, entangled hair. She had a party to attend
and her hair would just not stay put. Finally, she somehow managed a bun and
went to the party with a sulking face.
Does this happen with you too?
When hair looks limp, dull and lifeless, people often turn to new shampoos and
conditioners for that extra oomph. But really, a poor diet could be the culprit
for lustre lacking locks.
A practice that is very important, yet not often associated with healthy hair is
eating right.

A healthy diet can help your hair stay strong and shiny. What you eat can have
a huge effect on the health of your hair and can also keep you from losing your
locks. If you not getting certain nutrients from food, you might see the
effects in your hair. A lack of the right nutrients including vitamins A, B, C, D
and E, zinc, iron, proteins and essential fatty acids play a key role in the health
of your skin, hair, and nails. It may slow down hair growth or even cause hair
loss.

Why is balanced diet important for your hair?
Eating a well-balanced diet can sustain your hair health for long. We often
say healthy hair starts at the scalp. But it actually starts even before that: It
really starts with what nutrients you are feeding it. The foods people eat have
an impact on the growth, strength, and volume of their hair. Hair grows from
the roots, so the key to healthy hair growth lies in improving the health of the
scalp and hair follicles. Hair is continuously growing and being replaced, and
the follicles are constantly creating new hair from nutrients in the body.
A balanced diet plays an important role in keeping the hair healthy.
Your Hair is what you eat!
The foods eaten affects the hair growth and its quality. The right balanced
diet, that is suitable to your lifestyle, can make all the difference to your hair.

Heredity and natural aging processes play major roles in hair loss. Stress too
can cause breaking and thinning of hair, but when people notice a change in
their hair, they might want to visit a doctor. However, the quality, quantity,
and growth of hair are very closely linked to the diet. While some foods make
hair strong and beautiful, eating too much of others can make hair brittle and
thin. Therefore, it is recommended to check your diet. Maintaining a well-
balanced nutritious diet is the best way to improve the health and growth of
hair.

youthfulness and beauty in women and virility and masculinity in men; so it's no

deprivation and social phobia. Hair loss has many possible causes, including genetics, an
underactive thyroid, cancer treatments, or medications for other health conditions. Research

Fear of Hair Loss

Can you imagine the world of bald people?

Or say if they had just a few strands of hair that could be counted on fingers? How would it
be?

Hair is a symbol of beauty and you would never like to loose it. All of us experience hair
loss to some degree in our lives. There are various reasons for hair loss, stress and anxiety
being the commonest amongst all. Medical conditions could also lead to hair loss in some.
But yet, that fear remains…. whatever be the reason.
Fear of hair loss also makes getting haircuts and other routine activities difficult, if not
impossible, in some instances.
The fear of losing our hair is so ingrained in our minds that even in our dreams we dread
the fear to loose hair. For some people, this fear of hair loss manifests into deep
psychological phobias.
One such phobia is the fear of seeing or touching loose hairs known as trichophobia. While
shedding some hair is a common and healthy process, still it makes things profoundly
difficult in our day to day lives.
 Then there is peladophobia, the fear of becoming bald or even of people who are bald.
Both these phobias are generally traced back to triggering of an event in builts a fear of hair
loss.
Another phobia, very much the same is   Phalacrophobia , a fear of going bald. This phobia
unlike the other two phobias is more focused on negative reactions to the mere notion or
thought that one might be balding – even if no evidence exists to suggest that is happening.
These phobias of fear of hair loss hinder social, and personal life.
Don’t let the fear ruin your life. These are mere fears which can be overcomed. On
evaluation of the cause of the fear, a proper treatment and talking to therapist is
recommended.

How important are proteins for your hair?

Young Prina flaunted her beautiful brown tassels in the party and mesmerized many a men.
Oooh….don’t you wish you too had such beautiful hair that would make people turn their heads?
Which girl or women would not want that? Of course! Hair takes a significant place in enhancing
one’s beauty. In ancient India, it was said that hair represented their cultural identity. Myths have
changed with the changing times. Today, not only the women but even men take care of their hair
equally.

What damages the hair?

Other than the cold dry air and harsh weather that dehydrates the hair even outside forces
(especially chemical treatments like hair color and relaxers) damage the protein of the hair
shaft, leaving it prone to breakage. If your hair looks stringy or limp, those may also be
signs that your strands need more protein. Dull and limp hair is a sign of protein
deficiency. Also physical stress on the hair, is often the reason why hair strands
become prone to split ends, breakage and protein loss.

 

How important is protein for hair?

Hair is made up of a protein called keratin which is very important for healthy hair.
If there is lack of proteins in your diet, hair problems other than hair loss could also
occur. Hair becomes dry and brittle, frizzy and tangled, split ends and breaking of
hair too. Protein is vital for healthy hair and without it; hair loss is very much a
possibility.
Many a times increased hair loss could be caused by many things: a hormonal
imbalance, vitamin deficiencies, stress, auto-immune disorders, medications,
chemotherapy and more. Losing more hair that doesn’t come from the root tells it is
a protein issue and needs to be addressed immediately.

Can hair protein deficit be repaired?

Most people think that applying protein products will bring it back to life but layering
them with more products on already weak hair compromises on hair health and
weakens your hair. Chemically damaged hair that feels mushy or cotton candy-like can
benefit from a protein treatment. 
While protein deficiency can be treated by simply changing your diet and
lifestyle, it is important to thoroughly consult and analyze the scalp and hair before
deciding a lack of protein is the culprit.

There are different skin types and different problems associated with them. Dry skin can get itchy sometimes and needs to be hydrated often to keep it glowing. Oily skin is prone to pimples and has a greasy texture. Some people have normal skin, which is God’s gift, and then there are people with combination skin who have to face the problems of both dry skin and oily skin. Perfect skin is not too oily or dry but needs to be taken care with regular toning and cleansing. There are various types of facial masks made with natural ingredients which can also help in providing natural glow to the skin.

Clear Glowing Skin Naturally:

Some people have combination of dry and oily facial skin, the area near the cheeks and eyes is dry while the forehead and area around the mouth look greasy and has a darker shade. They need to treat these areas differently with different kinds of creams. Every skin type has a problem. But, where there is a will there is a way. The change needs to come from within.

If you can make it a daily routine and take care of your skin every day,your skin tone will definitely improve .. Your skin will look flawless and shiny, even as you age. Here are some great tips for clear skin. These tips are all natural, easily accessible which not only give you a better skin but also a healthy life. They are perfect for all the skin types.

fiber-rich-foods

Skin food is very essential for glowing skin and that comes from eating the right food in the right quantity .Eating fresh fruits & vegetables is important as they provide the micronutrients and anti oxidants essential for cellular metabolism .Natural proteins like fish, nuts and white meat, grains like buckwheat, brown rice and quinoa, vegetables like broccoli, tomato and beets are very healthy and good for the skin. Avoid processed and man-made food. Omega3 fatty acids are great to reduce inflammation; this is found in walnuts, salmon and soybeans.

Drink Water:

water

Water  and juices detox the body by removing the toxins and waste. It hydrates the body and removes excess oils and dirt. 15% of our skin is made up of water.Drinking at least 3 liters per day gives the skin a bright, noticeable change in less than a week. It rids your skin from dryness and wrinkles. It also boosts the immune system.

Avoid the Sun:

sun

The sun is a great source for vitamin D. The morning sun from 7am to 9am is good for the skin. However avoiding the sun after this time is very essential. The UV rays are quite strong and they not only damage the texture of the skin but over exposure to these rays can result in skin cancer. Avoid the sun especially from 10 am to 2 pm as the sun rays can get really harsh, and this is a must for even normal skin care.

Try to wear clothing that covers most of your skin and carry an umbrella if possible. Apply sunscreen with SPF above 45 while going outdoors.

Skin Hydration:

hydration

Hydrating the body from inside and outside is important. Cleanse your face twice every day, washing your face more than this can result in dryness. The natural oils produced by the skin are required to nourish it and provide flawless beauty and skin care. Use cold water to cleanse your face after washing it, as warm water opens the pores which allow bacteria and dirt to enter into them.

Pimple Care:

pimple care

Care of pimples and acne is very important . Popping the pimples pushes the infective material backwards and leads to scarring , redness & inflammation. Healing will take longer

Exfoliation

This is important to remove the dead cells, dust , impurities and blackheads and smooth out the skin  . It cleans the clogged pores and prevents acne breakout. However exfoliation should be avoided  in active  acne ,as it causes the spread of acne . Regular exfoliation improves the skin texture by reducing dullness , appearance of larger pores and makes it easier for the skin to absorb moisturizers and serums that are applied locally

Toner

Cleansing , toning & moisturizing are the basic tips for glowing skin , however toning is missed most of the time . Toners are to be used just after cleansing to restore the skin Ph balance & reduce pore size. They supply antioxidants , fatty acids , ceramides & glycerine for fresher smoother appearance . Toners have humectants property which binds moistureto the skin and prevents dryness

Detoxification

Removes toxins from within the body .You can start your day with warm water and stay away from alcohol, sugar and salty snacks . have loads of fresh fruits & vegetables

Remove makeup before sleep

This is important as make up contains harsh chemicals with clogs the pores and attracts dirt leading to acne .

Improve your lifestyle

By decreasing stress, doing physical exercise for atleast 30 mion daily , having balanced meal , avoiding alcohol and smoking and a good restful sleep of 7-8 hours . Good sleep will allow body to recuperate and improve metabolism . Physical activity flushes out toxins from the body & releases happy hormones ( endorphins ) which again improves skin texture .

Vit C intake daily

8 tips forWinter skin care

8 tips forWinter skin care

skin1

Prasad Poojary , Fayth Clinic ,

Many of us look forward to winter especially the people staying in warm & humid climate . However , winter can be harsh and can dehydrate and dry your skin . This is very important , especially if you are from warm & humid areas where you are not used to taking care of skin in winter .We know it can be a challenge, so we’ve put together this winter routine just for you. Of course, each skin type needs different tweaks, but these guidelines can be applied to all skin types.

  1. Super gentle cleansing.

skin3

Winter tends to weaken skin, so cleansing has to be super gentle. We recommend a gentle micellar water or cleansing oil to remove makeup and grime gently, then following that with a hydrating cleanser with a low pH level. Recommended to double cleanse (using an oil-based cleanser first, then following that with a water-balanced cleanser) no matter the season, but we stress it particularly for these dry winter months.

  1. Hydration

skin2

Winter tends to dehydrate and dry the skin , hence you need to pack your skin with hydration and get that hydration deep in all your layers of skin. You could use ingredients like hyaluronic acid, glycerin, or aloe vera. It is necessary to follow the skincare regime ,your toner helps balance the pH level in your skin and introduces that first layer of hydration, then your essence floods your skin with hydration and makes it like a sponge, ready to soak up everything in your ampoules, serums, and moisturizers.

  1. Supplement with oils and serums.

skin4

Sensitized skin in winter can easily become irritated skin, & can increase things like acne and/or hyperpigmentation. Use serums that focus on calming and soothing skin. We also recommend that you add a facial oil to your winter skin routine. Oils not only hydrate skin, but they also help lock that hydration in, so your skin isn’t evaporating all its vital moisture into the air. Facial oils are good for all skin types, even oily types! The thing is that even oily skin can get dehydrated, and, when skin gets dehydrated, it increases sebum (oil) production, which leads to more oily skin and to more breakouts. That’s why, if you have an oily skin type, your skin might actually feel even more oily during the dry winter months, because it’s compensating for how dehydrated it really is. Using a facial oil actually helps regulate sebum production, so your skin can lock in hydration.

  1. Switch to a moisturizer that’s intense and hydratingSmiling african girl with curly hair applying facial moisturizer while holding jar and looking at camera. Portrait of young black woman applying cream on her face isolated on beige background. Close up of happy attractive beauty woman caring of her skin standing on light brown wall with copy space.

A moisturizer moisturize skin and seals in, all the hydration you’ve layered on with your toner, essence, serums, oils. Moisturizers include occlusives that create a barrier on top your skin, so all the goodness you’ve applied will actually stay in your skin instead of seeping out. It’s important to remember that your moisturizer should be another layer in your skincare routine, not the only or principle source of moisture — a moisturizer will hydrate, yes, but it is most effective when it’s layered on top a hydrating toner, essence, serum, and/or oil, especially in these dry, winter months.

  1. Take advantage of the regenerative power of sleep.

skin6

Sleep helps to repair any damage sustained during the day and heal and restore. Use a sleeping pack, which is often a thicker cream you apply to your face as the last step in your skincare routine instead of a moisturizer and wash off in the morning. While you sleep, the hydrating, rich ingredients in these sleeping packs will seep into your skin, giving your body’s automatic regenerative power a boost.

6.And don’t forget about those lips! We recommend exfoliating lips with a sugar scrub 2 or 3 times a week and using a lip mask overnight!

7.Never ever forget your sunscreen! Even though the sun might not be as bright or strong as it is in the summer, the sun is still there, emitting UV rays that can harm your skin, so make sure you’re applying your sunscreen every morning and reapplying throughout the day.

We hope you found these pointers useful to take care of your skin in winter .
