How can I stop sweating so much?
After a shower dry your body completely. Then use plain talcum powder all over your body, especially underarms, and use an anti-fungal formula on feet, in between digits. However, some people may suffer from hyperhidrosis when more extreme measures like Botox are called for. Measured doses are injected into sweat glands in the soles and palms with repeat sessions every six to eight months.
The sessions usually get further spaced out because regular injections cause the sweat glands to shrink. Botox is a perfectly safe option provided it’s administered by a competent professional. Pausing the activity of the sweat glands on the feet, hands or armpits isn’t harmful because the body has sweat glands all over the body. Sweating—the body’s way of releasing toxins—continues from other less obvious and embarrassing parts of the body. If you’re wary of Botox injections, Nykaa suggests trying a clinical strength anti-perspiration formula after your evening shower. This way it will have plenty of time to get absorbed into skin and start working. Another swipe in the morning should be enough. Try Axe Dark Temptation Talcum Powder, Garnier Men Anti Sweat 48H Intense Sport Deodorant, Gillette Antiperspirant/Deodorant Power Rush Clear Geland Garnier Men Absolute Dry Deodorant.
Cracked heels are ruining my looks
Throw away those cheap but pretty chappals. Invest in good quality footwear with soft soles. Cracked heels need some serious moisture to prevent pain, bleeding, and infection. The skin on feet is thickest so applying a regular cold cream won’t do any good.
You need a hand-foot cream contain urea and lactic acid that can penetrate deep under the dermis. If the problem is severe, you should consult a dermatologist who will prescribe a formula containing steroids and Salicyclic Acid. Occasionally cracked heels are symptomatic of an underlying skin condition like psoriasis. Nykaa recommends Sally Hansen Smoothing Foot Scrub, H2O+ Softening Mint Foot Rub and Kaya Foot Care Cream.
Weak nails are ruining my style
Weak, brittle, split and discolored nails can be frustrating. Dipping your hands in water, nail biting and over enthusiastic nail treatments such as too-frequent manicures and gel nail polish can ruin nails. A biotin deficiency can also cause brittle nails.
Apart from taking a regular biotin supplement, you should start eating a wholesome diet of carrots, almonds, eggs, berries and vegetables such as cucumber and onions. Regular manicures can be harmful because removing the cuticle can introduce infections into the nail bed. Be sure to keep your hands and nails moisturized and wear water-proof gloves if you have to do the dishes. Nykaa recommends H2O+ Unscented Hand And Nail Cream, Sally Hansen 18 Hour Protective Hand Crème, Neutrogena Norwegian Formula Hand Cream and Nature’s Bounty Hair, Skin and Nails 3000 mcg of Biotin.
My skin looks patchy and lifeless
Relax! There’s plenty you can do lighten marks, pigmentation and dull skin. Ideally one should start a skincare regimen in your mid-30s. Supple, young skin requires nothing more than a regular facial every couple of months. Have a medi-facial based on your skin type. When you hit 40, try targeted anti-ageing skin solutions such as skin brightening and anti-ageing treatments like electrophoresis, machine massagers and lightening-tightening face masks.
For skins showing slight sag, simple skin tightening devices such as radiofrequency and ultrasound can also be started. This is also a good time to use an anti-ageing cream containing retinol to boost cell turnover. One of the best actives that fight pigmentation is alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs) such as lactic acid and glycolic acid. These are safe and effective when combined with natural moisturizing factors. Avoid direct sunlight on unprotected skin. UV ray exposure can worsen pigmentation so be sure to stay out of the sun and use a sub block with a SPF of at least 30 on your face and body. Remember to reapply sunscreen every three hours or even earlier if you sweat. Nykaa suggests Kaya Insta Brightening Micro Mask, Auriga Flavo-C Mask, Lakme Youth Infinity Skin Firming Day Crème, Olay Natural White Light Instant Glowing Fairness Serum, Thalgo Age Defence Sunscreen Cream Face SPF 50 and Dermalogica Extra Rich Faceblock SPF30.
