Major reasons for hair and skin problems are hormonal changes that the body undergoes during pregnancy and lack of sleep making your skin dull and dry.

It is rather challenging for a new mom to find 'Me Time'. Self-care doesn't mean one has to spend hours looking into a mirror, even a basic skincare and hair-care routine can be effective and will give the desired result. Major reasons for hair and skin problems are hormonal changes that the body undergoes during pregnancy and lack of sleep making your skin dull and dry. When it comes to hair, hair fall is one of the common concerns which new mothers face and most experience excess hair fall after childbirth.

Fret not! As soon as the hormone levels are back to normal in the body, the hair growth and fall cycle will also return to normal. But this could take several months to a year. So what should you do? Simply try to take care of yourself as much as possible. Most women try to avoid extra medications during pregnancy, this is why home remedies come to the rescue to treat hair fall naturally without worrying about any side effects.

It becomes essential to start an anti-aging regimen even after you've started showing signs of fine lines and wrinkles.

From the last decade, the beauty industry has witnessed a boom in anti-ageing and wrinkle-removal solutions. Many new products and procedures emerge daily to cater to the rising needs of "looking picture perfect" among millennials. The blue light from screen time, unhealthy eating practices and ineffective lifestyle choices make our skin and overall health suffer, thereby ageing us in the process. Therefore, it becomes essential to start an anti-aging regimen even after you've started showing signs of fine lines and wrinkles.

When should you start anti-ageing treatment?


Ageing skin is often characterised by dullness, sagging and wrinkled skin. Profhilo, a new skin bio-remodelling procedure, is a remarkable way of giving mature and ageing skin a new lease of life. Profhilo is a hyaluronic acid-based skin procedure that works to galvanise the skin's ability to generate collagen and elastin -- the two scaffolding proteins critical to skin's firmness and elasticity. Hyaluronic acid is a hydrophilic substance found naturally in the skin, the presence of which is critical to the health of the skin's extracellular matrix and its ability to hold on to moisture. As we age, our skin loses its natural reserves of hyaluronic acid resulting in dull, dry and lax skin.
There is endless information on the internet about the anti-ageing skin care. According to the beauty experts, one should start the anti-ageing skin treatment in their late 20's or early 30's to push off wrinkles as long as possible. One should keep in mind that wrinkle-removal products delay more wrinkles from showing up, but it won't make the ones that are already there disappear. So, the earlier you start, the more protection you will get in delaying the ageing process

I only need to use sunscreen in summers

Winters and monsoon have little to no heat from the sun. That, however, does not mean that the sun's rays are not present in the atmosphere. They simply aren't very strong because of the weather. Sunscreens protect your skin from the harmful UV and UB rays of the sun which can cause skin cancer. Therefore, one must continue using a sun protection shield irrespective of the season.

Monsoon is a welcome change after the scorching summer heat but it comes with its own set of challenges. Increased humidity causes breakouts, dullness, and greasiness on one's skin. Increased use of face masks to prevent the spread of the Covid-19 virus also leads to moisture being trapped under the mask thus giving way to acne-causing bacteria and fungal infections.

A change in season calls for a change in skincare to adapt basis the new weather conditions. Making small, quick customizations would be key in ensuring healthy, glowing skin. Plabita Sharma, National Training Manager, The Body Shop India, tips to combat dullness during the rains:
