Thus, it becomes important to take care of your baby’s skin during summer. Refreshing the skin with products containing natural ingredients helps keep the skin well-hydrated and minimise the effect of heat rashes, prickly heat, and associated skin concerns.

“A baby’s skin is different from that of adults. Their skin, which is delicate and developing, is highly susceptible to rashes and sunburn, which leads to discomfort. Hence, ensure to retain the skin’s moisture during summer which will help keep the skin hydrated,” says Dr. Subhashini N.S., Ayurveda Expert, The Himalaya Drug Company.

Here are some simple tips that mothers can keep in mind to take care of baby’s skin during summer:

* Natural ingredients for the skin: Whether it is a wash, soap, lotion, prickly heat powder, or diaper rash cream, ensure you use products enriched with ingredients that help keep the skin cool and refreshed. Ingredients like calamine, neem, vetiver, watermelon, lemon oil, yashada bhasma, aloe vera, and almond Oil, help soothe the skin from the soaring temperature and reduce discomfort.

* Bath helps cool sensitive skin: During bath time, it is advisable to use a wash or soap infused with watermelon, neem and lemon Oil. The ingredients work together to keep the skin refreshed. Watermelon and lemon help cool the skin and neem helps manage rashes and itching.

Apart from dressing baby in comfortable clothing, using a prickly heat powder after a bath and before bedtime can help heal rashes and provide relief from prickly heat. A prickly heat powder infused with neem and vetiver helps refresh the skin by managing excessive sweating and itching.

Sports betting has become increasingly popular among the youth in recent times

Sports betting has been around for centuries for the audience to not only watch the sport but to get more deeply involved in the match. It is a fun and often profitable activity for the viewer to win some extra fortune or simply get some extra sweat while watching the game. At first glance, sports betting may look like it's pure luck, but when you indulge deeper into the activity you realize it is more of a calculative and research activity than just pure luck. We must note that yes, luck does play a certain role to some extend but a win is not completely dependent on luck, if you're putting your bets on a certain team you have to make sure to do some research about the players on the team, history of wins and losses of the team and compare the probability of winning and then place bets.

Even though sports betting has existed since the ancient era, it was not until recently that it became increasingly popular among the youth. This happened due to the legalization of the activity and the rise of online sports betting. The technological revolution has expanded the sports betting industry, offering the bettors new markets and ways to bet. The only major difference between online bookmarkers and traditional brick-and-mortar venues of sports betting is that now you can place bets online from your mobile devices, laptops, computers etc.
