Healthy Hair Tips | 17 Tips For Healthy Hair And Skin

Cosmetologist Dr Rekha Sheth shares her tips for healthy hair and skin.

hair – Remember that the most important factors that decide the quality of your skin and hair are your genes and family history, your nerves and emotions, and your immune system.

– Use an appropriate face wash meant for your skin type and wash twice a day.

– Use cleansers at night to remove make up and dirt before using a face wash.

– Use sunscreen everyday even if you are indoors – the sun’s UVA rays come through windows too and contribute to aging, pigmenting and tanning. Ideally, sunscreen should be applied every three hours.

Sunscreen should have an SPF of 30 or more. SPF is the degree of protection against UVB rays, hence sunscreen must have UVA protection as well. The usual UVA protection ingredients are Avobenzone, Titanium dioxide, Zinc oxide, Mexoryl and Tinosorb.

– Make up products like foundations, mineral powders and compacts do not have adequate sun protection.

– Indian skin tends to tan and pigment easily and patchily. There is a very thin line between tanning and pigmentation. If your tan hasn’t gone in 4-6 weeks, see a dermatologist.

– It is advisable to use mild skin lightening creams as prevention. Look for botanical ingredients like Arbutin, Bearberry, Licorice, Mulberry, Ginseng, Gingko, Emblica, Turmeric – curcuma, Grapeseed and vitamins like C and A, and Niacinamide.
skin
– Aging can be intrinsic, i.e. genetic, and can be delayed by exercise and, to a lesser extent, through diet. Extrinsic factors include increased UV intensity, increased pollution as well as stress. All these factors tend to dry the skin and make it more prone to pigmentation and aging. Hence it is important to start caring for your skin in your teens.

– Extrinsic factors produce Reactive Oxygen Species (ROS), which are naughty oxygen molecules that damage the cells and make them age faster. Anti-oxidants neutralise these ROS.

– At night, use a moisturiser with an age-protecting agent.

– For younger skin, look for ingredients with antioxidants like vitamins C, E or a whole range of botanicals like green tea, grapeseed or pomegranate extract, curcumin, etc. You might also like to look out for the following: Genistein, ECGC, Resveratrol, Idebenone and Coenzyme Q10 or CoQ10.

– Kitchen ingredients like fruits do not work.

– For older skin, look for the following ingredients: peptides, vitamin A and derivatives like retinol and other retinoids, Alpha, beta and polyhydroxy acids.

– Exfoliation should be done with extreme caution and only with modern bead exfoliators. Avoid granular scrubs as these tend to damage the skin microscopically, which can lead to slow, insidious and patchy darkening.

– It is advisable to visit a dermatologist at least once a year. There are a lot of nuances in skin colour, texture, smoothness, etc. that we can’t see for ourselves. These can be detected by the dermatologist and mild creams/treatments can be recommended.

– Always use a conditioner after you shampoo your hair. It protects your hair and is a better option than oil. Conditioners neutralise electrical charge in the hair shaft and help in detangling. Conditioners also improve shine and to some extent repair minor frays in the hair shaft. Conditioning agents like hydrolized protein or silicons are added to increase manageability and shine in the hair.

Independence Day in India

India celebrates Independence Day on August 15 of each year. India became an independent nation on August 15, 1947, so a gazette holiday is celebrated annually to remember this date.

What do you do?

Independence Day is a day when people in India pays tribute to its leaders and those who fought for freedom of India in the past. The period before Independence Day is a time when the main government buildings are lit with fairy lights and fluttering tricolor of houses and other buildings. The media, print and online contests may have special programs, and articles to promote the day. The films on freedom fighters of India are also shown on television.

The president delivered the “Message to the Nation”, on the eve of Independence Day. Flag of India Prime Minister of India unfolds and has a speech at the Red Fort in Old Delhi. Ceremonial flag hoisting and cultural programs are held in state capitals and often involve many schools and organizations.

Many people spend the day with family members or close friends. They can eat a picnic in a park or private garden, go to a movie or eat lunch or dinner at home or in a restaurant. Other people go kite flying or singing or listening to patriotic songs.

Public life

indianIndependence Day is a holiday in India Gazette on 15 August each year. Offices, state and local government offices and banks are closed on this day. Shops and other businesses and organizations can be closed or have reduced opening hours.

Public transportation is usually not affected by many locals traveling for celebrations, but there may be a lot of traffic and greater security in areas where there are celebrations. Independence Day flag raising ceremonies may cause circulatory disorders, especially in Delhi and state capitals cities of India.

Background

indianThe struggle for independence from India began in 1857 with the Sepoy Mutiny in Meerut. Later in the 20th century, the Indian National Congress and other political organizations under the leadership of Mahatma Gandhi, launched an independence movement throughout the country. The colonial powers were transferred to India on August 15, 1947.

The Constituent Assembly, that power should be transferred, gathered to celebrate the independence of India at 11 pm on August 14, 1947. India gained freedom and became a free country at midnight between August 14 and August 15, 1947. That’s when the first free India’s Prime Minister Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru gave his famous “tryst with destiny” speech. People across India will remember the significance of this event – which marked the beginning of a new era of liberation from British colonialism, which took place in India for over 200 years.

Symbols

indiaThe sport of kite flying symbolizes Independence Day. The skies are dotted with innumerable kites flown from rooftops and fields to symbolize the free spirit of India of India. Kites of different styles, sizes and shades, including the tricolor are available in the markets. The Red Fort in Delhi is also an important symbol of the Independence Day of India, as this is where the Indian Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru announced the flag of India on August 15, 1947.

The national flag of India is a horizontal tricolor of saffron deep (kesaria) on top, white in the middle and dark green at the bottom in the same proportion. The relationship between the width of the flag of its length is two to three. A navy blue wheel in the center of the white stripe represents the chakra. Its design is the wheel which appears on the abacus of Sarnath Lion Capital of Ashoka. Its diameter approximates the width of the white band and has spokes 24.

‘Iron Brigade’ (X360) Coming To PC, Soon ‎| Iron Brigade

Double Fine’s Iron Brigade might have slipped under your radar. Released a little more than a year ago to rave reviews, it was originally called Trenched and exclusive to the Xbox. This week, Doublefine announced the imminent launch of a PC version — a lucky second chance for anyone who missed this excellent and chaotic action tower defense the first time around. But before I give an unconditional recommendation, I’m going to take a good, hard look at the PC port and find out if it takes full advantage of the platform, or if it’s a sloppy console-to-pc kludge. Here we go:

Installation

Boo! BOOOOOO!

Though the installation via Steam is quick and straightforward, I was quickly confronted by the fact that Iron Brigade uses the always-odious Games For Windows Live. I’m not too surprised, as this was originally an Xbox Live Arcade game, but the ol’ “sign in, reg key, Games for Windows Live Update, restart game, sign in again, reg key again” routine never ceases to frustrate.

Graphics Settings

Check, check, check, and check.

Getting into the settings panel, it’s immediately apparent that the Iron Brigade port isn’t a hack job. Graphics settings include the standard resolution and brightness settings, as well as a small selection of advanced options, such as antialiasing, SSAO (ambient occlusion), and bloom. Of course you’re not getting the same level of customization as you’d get in a bigger game, but that would be overkill anyway here. The graphics in Iron Brigade are hardly cutting-edge, and most gamers won’t need to worry about any setting other than “maximum.”

Other Setting

Can it be? FOV?

Outside of the graphics options, Iron Brigade includes options generally considered a “must” for PC games, including mouse sensitivity, plus one that’s become a luxury these days: a field-of-view setting. There’s not a lot to see in the audio settings beyond your basic volume sliders, which is fair enough, since the voice acting doesn’t quite warrant a 7.1 Dolby Surround option, anyway.

Controls

This quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog just fine.

The keyboard and mouse controls in Iron Brigade are fully re-mappable, though you’re limited to the standard keys and three mouse buttons, so any extra buttons on that gaming mouse of yours are going to be dead weight. As you’d expect, it’s fully compatible with a USB Xbox 360 controller, but if you go that route you’re locked into the default button mapping (which, in fairness, works quite well).

Performance

It doesn’t take much for IB to look its best.

As previously mentioned, the graphics in Iron Brigade aren’t anything to write home about. What it lacks in technical wizardry it makes up for in character, and looks fine in motion, but it’s just not designed to push your graphics hardware. As such, I was able to play it on a three-year-old gaming laptop at max settings with great framerate, and I’d expect that any gamer with a computer built this side of 2008 will be able to do the same.

Saving

Just try not to switch off the power.

Saving in Iron Brigade is handled with a standard console autosave system. It’s hardly ideal, but given the mission-based progression, I didn’t find this to be a problem.

Multiplayer

What’s that? I can’t hear you over the sound of GFWL sucking.

Iron Brigade single-player is a good time, but it’s at its chaotic best when you play cooperatively with three friends — and that’s where you have to deal with Games for Windows Live. If you want to drop into a public game you’ll have to use a console-style, no-frills matchmaker, which lacks even basic filtering options. I’d prefer to see a matchmaker with some more control or — gasp! — a server browser, but at least this does what it says it does.

Conclusion

Although Iron Brigade doesn’t offer 100% of the features we like to see in a PC port, it comes pretty close, and none of the omissions are too egregious. Considering its excellent reception on consoles and competent transfer to PC, it’s a go for any interested tower-defense players (who can stomach the GFWL baggage) when it comes out on Monday.

London 2012 rhythmic gymnastics | 2012 british gymnastics

LONDON – rhythmic gymnastics event at Wembley Arena opened yesterday, destined to be a Russian festival. In this environment, Neta Rivkin of Israel placed 14 after the first two devices while the Israel team won eighth place in the middle of their classification.
