    Top 6 summer skin tips

    Women of Thane
    Image Source : freepik.com
    As you prepare to show more skin, get ready to face the sun's rays with our top 6 summer skin tips!

    1. Exfoliate for clearer, smoother skin

    What it does: Exfoliation removes dead, dulling skin debris to prevent congestion and improve hydration from toners and moisturizers.

    When: Perform in the mornings prior to toner, moisturizer, SPF and make-up application. Tip: Make-up will last longer on an exfoliated skin!

    Don’t forget: After you exfoliate, follow with a hydrating body cream to seal in moisture, and always shield freshly exfoliated skin with an SPF (as recommended by the FDA).

    2. Keep skin hydrated

    How: Up your regimen’s level of hydration with intensive masques, perfect for use one to two times a week. Boosters are a great fit, working best when layered underneath a moisturizer. Toners are a refreshing moisturizer prep, working to even out skin porosity. Tip: Refresh with a revitalizing toner spritz at your desk, in the car, at the gym, on the plane!

    3. Make friends with H20

    Why: Higher temperatures and more time outdoors leads to internal dehydration, which can result in headaches and dizzy spells!

    What you can do: Eight 8-ounce glasses of plain, filtered water every day help maintain critical moisture balance of the body and skin, and assist in detoxification. Tip: If you drink caffeinated beverages, you must triple the amount of water you drink!

    4. When in doubt, apply (and reapply!)

    Why: It’s not enough to just apply sunscreen.: you must apply enough, and apply frequently. Studies indicate that most people do not apply nearly as much daylight protection as they should.

    How much: A teaspoon for the face. For the body, about as much as would fill a shot glass.

    How often: Re-apply every two hours. Tip: Stay out of the midday sun from mid-morning to late afternoon whenever you can.

    Bonus: Today’s sophisticated formulas and technology let you select sun protection that works with your skin condition. That means you can choose oil-free, mattifying formulas, extra emollient formulas for dry skin, or chemical free formulas for sensitized, reactive skin.

    5. Soothe over-exposed skin

    What: You forgot the sunscreen, didn’t apply enough, or got caught in a sunny spell.

    What’s next: Unfortunately, the damage is done, but you don’t have to suffer in pain! Super-soothing botanicals and cooling gels can help prevent peeling and reduce redness and inflammation.

    How: Apply cooling balms generously over-exposed skin, preferably at the first sight of a pink glow. 

    Prevent: One blistering sunburn doubles your risk of melanoma -- remember to get a yearly skin exam by a doctor and perform a self-examination once a month to detect early warning signs of carcinomas and malignant melanoma. Look for a new growth or any skin change.

    6. Repair and treat sun damage

    What causes skin damage: UV light causes photoaging in the form of brown spots, coarse skin and wrinkles, whether you have burned your skin or not. When sunlight comes in contact with skin a cascade of damage results (including the stripping of barrier lipids) causing inflammation, production of reactive oxygen molecules that affect healthy cell growth, and stimulation of collagen destructing enzymes.

    What to do: A tan may be a popular summer look, but it indicates damage. Bombard your skin with age-fighting ingredients to help undo any damage that may occur, and to further protect it from the aging effects of UV.

    Healthy Foods To Fit Your Every Mood


    Thane web Blog

    Credits: Freepik.com

    You are what you eat and that also includes your mood. While food nourishes and keeps us alive, it can also serve to accommodate us as we go through different mood-swings. As stated in the book The Happy Kitchen: Good Food Mood, there are foods for every mood.
    In addition to providing a nutritional boost, some foods can get you in the appropriate mood so that you can better complete your tasks.

    Our mood-changing foods

    If you’re feeling… anxious

    It would be hard not to experience some form of anxiety in this fast-paced world. And while a glass of wine comes with a range of benefits, we don’t recommend using it as a way to ease your anxious thoughts.
    Luckily, there are other foods that can help.
    According to a 2013 Japanese study, low levels of vitamin B6 in the body have been linked to anxiety and panic attacks. If you’re looking to increase your levels of vitamin B6, the best foods to eat will be avocados, pinto beans, pistachio, and sunflower seeds.
    In addition to munching on sunflower seeds, drinking a calming cup of chamomile tea can also help as studies have shown its ability to reduce anxiety symptoms (1).

    If you’re feeling… angry

    According to a study published by JAMA Network and another published in the journal PLOS, your aggressive behavior and anger may be linked to an omega-3 deficiency.
    If you feel your anger simmering, enjoy some nuts and seeds as a delicious, healthy snack. You can also incorporate more avocados into your diet. Enjoy a few of our favorite avocado recipes below:
    Cream Of Avocado Soup
    Avocado, Olives and Basil Penne
    Taco Trio With Salsa, Guacamole And Greek Yoghurt
    Aside from upping your omega-3 intake, you can also eat more zinc-rich foods. A 2010 study suggested that women who consume foods rich in zinc may reduce their anger levels. That being said, salmon, mackerel, almonds, and walnuts contain both omega-3 fatty acids and zinc.

    If you’re experiencing… brain fog

    If you’re having trouble staying focused and maintaining your concentration, there are some foods that will help to clear up your brain fog.
    Choline is a nutrient that, when ingested, partakes in helping the brain cells produce acetylcholine – a neurotransmitter that encourages mental focus. Choline can be found in broccoli, liver, peanuts and quinoa.
    Also, as the brain is made up of a large amount of omega-3 fatty acid DHA, eating healthy fats is a sure way to support brain function. DHA can be found in algae, walnuts and fatty fish such as salmon. If you’re not sure how to start eating more salmon, try this delicious Mango Teriyaki Salmon and Brown Rice recipe.
    Be sure to add a serving of green leafy vegetables to your meal as their vitamin K and lutein content has been shown to boost brain power (2).

    If you’re feeling… romantic

    Comfort foods are often seen as a large serving of chocolate ice cream. Thankfully, there are ways you can get your mood up without compromising your health.
    Nutrients that can help to boost your mood include omega-3 fatty acids and vitamins D, E and B12. In fact, studies have found that deficiencies in these minerals can increase one’s risk of depression (3,4,5). In addition to this, our guts have now become known as the second brain due to its ability to influence our mood. Aside from adding more omega-3 fatty acids and vitamin D rich foods to your diet, such as mushrooms, be sure to include foods that can cater to your gut. This includes fermented foods such as kefir and sauerkraut.

    If you’re feeling… sluggish

    If you find yourself low on energy and lethargic, don’t grab the closest energy drink but rather opt for a cup of green.
    Matcha tea, in addition to being great for the skin, can provide you with an energy boost thanks to the amino auld L-theanine.

    If you’re feeling… stressed

    Overeating is common when we find ourselves stressed and overwhelmed. Instead of reaching for a packet of processed chips, try eating some leafy greens.
    The magnesium and folate found in spinach and other leafy greens helps to produce neurotransmitters that can reduce stress levels. Another food that can calm you down when you’re stressed are blueberries. These little blue and nutritional bombs are rich in vitamin C and antioxidants – both of which can provide stress relief.

    Want to know more?

    While eating these foods can cater to your every mood, there are also daily habits that you can adopt to ensure that you live a long and healthy life.
