September 30, 2016: There is no denying that prepping your skin for the festive rush is as important as nailing the final look. Opting for Vitamin C enriched products or taking cocoa or mulberry can do the talking for your skin.
Sangeeta Velaskar, Vice President and Head, Medical Services and R&D, Kaya Limited, throws light on a few ingredients that one must look out for before opting for the next facial:
* Vitamin C: The antioxidant properties of vitamin C (ascorbic acid) and its role in brightening make vitamin C a vital molecule for skin health. Dietary and topical ascorbic acid have beneficial effects on skin cells and studies have shown that vitamin C may also help prevent and treat ultraviolet (UV)-induced photodamage.

* Cocoa: Free radicals are the reactive forms of oxygen generated when UV light hits the skin. It is well established that the ageing of the skin caused by sunlight is largely the result of damage to the skin’s proteins caused by these free radicals. Cocoa is packed with antioxidants that help repair skin cells and neutralize harmful free radicals.
* Seaweed: Seaweed’s natural, anti-inflammatory compounds can have a positive effect on acne explosions by reducing the swelling. It can also be used as a natural exfoliant to remove dead skin cells, which can block pores. Seaweed, when applied to the body, draws excess fluid and waste products from the skin. It also acts as a cleanser for dead skin cells and other impurities on the surface.

* Arbutin: Arbutin is a molecule extracted from the bearberry plant that prevents the formation of melanin. One of the benefits of alpha arbutin is that it lightens dark skin at a fast pace and gets rid of melasma spots. Arbutin also blocks tyrosinase and keeps dark spots at bay.
* Mulberry: Men and women often look to mulberries to treat dry, blotchy and aging skin. Even sensitive skin can be safely rejuvenated with mulberry treatments, supplements, and juices. The vast antioxidant properties remove toxins, unclog pores, even skin tone, moisturize and fight blemishes. The same properties also help promote healthy hair growth, produce shine and luster, and prevent breakage and loss of colour vibrancy. (IANS)

June 06, 2017: NASA has chosen 12 astronauts out of a record-breaking 18,300 applications for upcoming space missions. An American of Indian descent, Raja Chari, has successfully earned his spot in the top 12.
The astronauts were selected on the basis of expertise, education, and physical tests. This batch of 12 astronauts is the largest group selected by NASA since two decades. The group consisting of 7 men and 5 women surpassed the minimum requirements of NASA.
Born in Waterloo, Iowa, Chari graduated from Air Force Academy in 1999 with a bachelor’s degree in Astronautical Engineering and Engineering Science. He went on to complete his master’s in Aeronautics and Astronautics from Massachusetts Institute of Technology. The astronaut is also a graduate of US Naval Test Pilot School.

After Late Kalpana Chawla, Lt. Col. Raja Chari is the second Indian American astronaut chosen by NASA.
The 12 astronauts will have to go through two years of training. Upon completion, they will be assigned their missions ranging from research at the International Space Station, launching from American soil on spacecraft by private companies, to flying on deep space missions on NASA’s Orion Spacecraft.
The US Vice-President Mike Pence visited the Johnson Space Centre in Houston to announce and congratulate the new batch. Pence also said that President Trump is “fully committed” to NASA’s missions in space.
