7 ways to prevent Wrinkles

 7 ways to prevent Wrinkles

(By- Gaurika Sharma)

What causes wrinkles?

Everyone’s skin ages, which is why the skin of a young child and the skin of a 90 year old looks very different.

Skin loses elasticity as we age because collagen production slows down over time. This process can be exacerbated by a variety of factors including sun exposure, pollution and certain lifestyle habits.

As you get older, your skin tends to become thinner and drier too. When your skin doesn’t have as much moisture or volume as it used to, it can also make it more prone to wrinkles.


 

What can be done to prevent wrinkles?

Genetics can play a role in how your skin ages over time. This is known as intrinsic aging.

 But even if your family has skin that tends to wrinkle easily you still have a good deal of control over your own skin and how well it ages.

Although it’s inevitable that wrinkles will show up at some point, taking good care of your skin can go long way in keeping it wrinkle free for as ,long as possible.

Here are 7 lifestyle tips that can help keep your skin looking youthful and wrinkle free:-

1.PROTECT YOURSELF FROM THE SUN:-


 

It’s a well-known fact that exposure to the sun can damage your skin, leading to premature aging and wrinkles.

According to a study regular sunscreen use has the ability to slow down the signs of aging skin.

To protect your skin from the sun’s damaging ultraviolet rays, it’s vital to apply an SPF of between 30 and 50 everyday , even if its overcast. UV rays can still penetrate clouds, so don’t skip on sunscreen just because it isn’t sunny.

For extra protection wear a wide brim hat, light colored clothes that will reflect the sun and sunglasses with UV protection.

2.STAY HYDRATED:-


 

Drinking water is essential for good health. Your body needs water for almost every function it does.

Besides vital functions like flushing toxins from your body, aiding with digestion, and regulating your body temperature, water can also help keep your skin healthy and hydrated from the inside.

According to a study it was determined that higher water input can have effect on the hydration of the skin, and it may positively affect skin physiology.

 3.USE A RETINOID:-


 

Retinoids which are derived from Vitamin A, are one of the most studied anti-aging ingredients. Sometimes referred to as retinol, retinoids have the ability to increase collagen production which help plumps the skin.

Retinoids also encourages skin regeneration and can promote the creation of new blood vessels, which may help improve the skin’s overall appearance and texture.

4.MOISTURIZE:-

 

A moisturizer acts like a drink of water for your face.

Moisturizers help to nourish and hydrate the skin. This is especially important as you get older and your skin becomes drier, which makes it more prone to wrinkles.

Research shows that using a moisturizer that contains hyaluronic acid and Vitamin C are effective.

5.DON’T SMOKE:-

 

Tobacco smoke damages collagen and elastin the fibers that give your skin its elasticity and strength.

Also, the nicotine in cigarettes causes your blood vessels to constrict. This reduces the blood flow from your skin.

 6.EAT VITAMIN RICH FOOD:-


 

You’ve probably heard the saying,” You are what you eat”. When it comes to how well your skin ages, this is especially true.

A study found that dietary habits are associated with facial wrinkling, especially in women.

According to the study women whose diets include a high amount of red meat and unhealthy snacks tends to have more facial wrinkles than women who include fruit in their diet.

Foods that are high in anti-inflammatory or antioxidant properties may also improve the skin’s elasticity and protect against skin damage and premature aging. Some foods and drinks with these qualities include:

#Green tea

#Olive oil

#Salmon

#Avocados

#Pomegranates

#Flax Seeds

#Vegetables, especially carrots, pumpkin, leafy greens, bell peppers, and broccoli

7.SLEEP ON YOUR BACK:-


 

According to a study, your sleeping position may have an effect on the formation of wrinkles. The study found that people who sleep on their side or stomach are prone to mechanical compression forces, which can speed up the formation of wrinkles, and also distort facial skin.

One way to prevent this is to try sleeping on your back instead of sleeping on your side or stomach.

HOMECOMING (2018---) [Thriller]

 

While season 2 of Homecoming didn’t quite find its feet, season 1 hit the ground running. Julia Roberts stars in this psychological thriller about an army rehabilitation facility run by questionable owners. Using an effective, myster
y-building narrative that covers two timelines, Homecoming is high on tension and paranoia as it reveals what the facility’s true purpose is. Fun Fact:- The series uses the actual scores of movies from Alfred Hitchcock, Stanley Kubrick and more.

 

THE MAN IN THE HIGH CASTLE(2015-2019)

 

The man in the high castle imagines an alternate history where the Axis powers win World War II. Based on a novel, the series follows characters in the 60’s who live in a parallel universe, where Nazi Germany and the empire of Japan control the US. But there’s impossible newsreel footage surfacing of a world where Germany and Japan lose the war, causing some to rebel. To really hammer home its dystopia credentials, The Man in the High Castle is steered by producer Ridley Scott. Fully realized and with a focused plot, this is gripping TV.

TRUTH SEEKERS (2020)


 

Longtime comedy pair Simon Pegg and Nick Frost hit the small screen with Truth Seekers, a surprisingly dark comedy with a sinister edge. Frost plays Gus, a paranormal investigator when he’s not working for Dave’s  broadband company taking assignments in creepy houses across the UK. The Ghost-a-week format turns into solving a larger conspiracy, with a few guest stars who’re clearly having a ball. It won’t top Pegg and Frost’s list of best projects, but it’s good fun, especially around Halloween.

UNDONE(2019--)

 

This unique series uses the Rotoscoping animation technique to tell the story of a young woman, after suffering a near-fatal car accident, discovers she can manipulate time. Intriguing, right? It gets better: Bob Odenkrik plays Alma’s dead father, who enlists help in investing his murder. Bending both time and space, Undone is surreal and beautifully existential for those looking for deep material.

 

THE MARVELOUS MRS. MAISEL(2017--)

 

A 50’s housewife who become a standup comic? This brilliant series from Gilmore Girls creator Amy Sherman Palladino, is filled with sparkling performances from Rachel Brosnahan and Alex Borstein, with dialogue to match.

With impressive visuals, warmth and Zingers, the Marvelous Mrs. Maisel is the full package.

FLEABAG(2016-2019)


 

If somehow the Fleabag train is passed by you, it’s time to let it hit you as its full, incredible force. Phoebe Waller Bridge writes and stars in the play-turned extraordinary comedy series. A 30-something woman who runs a cafĂ© . Just about word-for-word perfect, with a fourth-wall breaking device, Fleabag does its best to both shock and devastate you, while being ridiculously funny.

THE EXPANSE(2015---)

 

Amazon rescued The Expanse from the realm of canceled TV, bringing us a fifth season with a sixth to come. Thank goodness it did, because The Expanse is smart sci-fi with realistic characters, high production values and a dash of detective noir. Set in a future where humanity has colonized the Solar System, a conspiracy threatens to start a cold war between the largest powers. A band of antiheroes find themselves at the center.

THE BOYS(2019---)

 

The Boys stormed Amazon last year with its ultra-violent tale of antihero vigilantes seeking revenge against the world’s most beloved superheroes. But these heroes aren’t what they seem: Their corporate overloads cover up their shady personal lives. With social commentary black comedy and pops of gore, The Boys takes a thrilling and unapologetic step away from the family-friendly genre.

 

HANNA(2019---)

 

The premise of Hanna, a Joe Wright action thriller from 2011, is so good Amazon fleshed it out for a TV series. Starring Esme Creed-Miles as the skilled young assassin living in the Romanian wilderness, Hanna the TV show expands the teen’s backstory and explains why the CIA’s Marissa Wiegler has an obsession with capturing her.

THE TERROR(2018--)


 

Not only does this horror anthology series feature Japanese Folklore and explorer heading into uncharted territory, but its first chapter stars pre-Chernobyl Jared Harris. He plays the caption of Arctic explorer ships that end up stuck in the ice. On top of the harsh conditions and cabin fever, an unknown presence in the mist stalks the crew. Strung with atmospheric dread, the terror is thrilling, prestige horror. The Terror is available on Prime Vedio in Australia and AMC in the US.

Experimenting with the ‘Desi Look’

 Experimenting with the ‘Desi Look’  

 

Fashion biggies have been mixing the western and ethnic sensibilities together to bring and it normally indented up the fame of Indian ethnic wear in the worldwide market.

The elegance and appeal of Indian ethnic wear have been maintained since days of yore, and the occidental culture has consistently been interested by the gloriousness of the famous ethnic outfits — saree, salwar suit and the lehenga. Fashion biggies have been mixing the western and ethnic sensibilities together to bring — the rich patterns, cuts and comfort part of western wear were combined with the conventional luxury and style, and it normally indented up the fame of Indian ethnic wear in the worldwide market.

These tips by Anuj Mundra, MD and Chairman of Jaipurkurti.com will help you rock the ‘desi look’:

 1. While getting an ethnic wear for working environment, consistently look sharp. Stay away from substantial flowy dupattas that are very diverting. All things being equal choose a dupatta that has hand printed themes. Patiala pants are ideal workwear. Wear a botanical print kurti with fully spread solid Patiala salwar.

 2. To break the tedium of ordinary western or ethnic wear, you can generally pick an Indo-western combination wear. Wear a short combination kurta and provincial dhoti-style salwar or bottoms embellished well.

 3. Another method of pulling off an ethnic look without getting carried away with salwar kameez is to wear flared long dresses. With strong themes, flower prints and wide hemlines, these designs look stylish and are agreeable.


 

 4. Multi-shaded palazzos with block prints matched with a plain kurta can add an alternate appeal to the entire outfit. On the off chance that you are not a kurta fan, these palazzos can be combined with tank tops or short kurtis.

5. Your ethnic wardrobe is incomplete without a few stunning anarkali pieces. From easygoing to celebrations, these anarkali kurtas look very lovely and comfortable to wear for a more extended time frame length. The flared hem and the designed neck make these kurtas a top pick for everybody.

Back Pain at Workplace: Prevention & Exercises

Back Pain at Workplace: Prevention & Exercises

Back Pain, especially low back pain, is often associated with functional disability as well as economic and social consequences. 

It is one of the most expensive diseases in the age group of 25-50 years as it leads to serious loss of productivity.

 It is estimated that the loss of work resulting from backache costs 30 billion dollars annually in the US.

 Backache ranks second to cold and cough as a cause of loss of work.


 

Individuals with chronic back pain usually suffer from physical impairment,behavioural changes, hopelessness, de-motivation and lethargy.

Back pain at workplace results either from non-accidental injury, where pain arises as a result of poor bosy mechanics such as slouching in chair, prolonged sitting ad fatigue or it results from accidental injury or accidents such as slipping, falling from a height and even hitting one’s head against a cabinet door.

Workers undertaking physically demanding jobs such as repetitive lifting of heavy objects are at greatest risk for both non-accidental and accidental back injury.


 

People who are in the desk job most of the day are prone to non-accidental back injury. 

Our working style has changed and it is more technology dependent now.

 Many of us end up working on computers for as much as 15 hours per day! Prolonged periods of sitting or other sedentary activity is not good for back health and may cause muscle fatigue since the back and abdominal muscles have to work really hard to maintain the body in a single position for prolonged periods. 


 

Added to this the joints involved- knees, hips and intervetebral joints- have to remain stationary or in a bad posture for long hours. 

Incorrect posture and muscle fatigue are partly responsible for initiating osteoporosis at a very early age and put such people at higher risk of developing osteoarthritis.

One must remember that backache is only a symptom of innumerable other causes besides spine related problems.


 

 The back pain maybe related to cardiovascular, respiratory, gastrointestinal, urological or gynecological problems. 

Besides injury and straining, the backache originating from the spine can also be due to tumor ,  infection, inflammation, metabolic disorders, degenerative disc conditions, spondylosis, and spondylitis.
