DR. JAMUNA PAI
Cosmetologist, Blush Clinic “I can’t stress on this enough—use sunscreen 365 days a year. I use it diligently myself as it helps keep pigmentation, signs of ageing, and wrinkles at bay. I am 43 years old but people say I don’t look older than 30—all thanks to my sunscreen, I say!” Recommended regime: Cleanse twice a day with a pH balanced face wash. Use a sunblock with SPF 30, which you may reapply every 2-3 hours. In case you plan to hit the pool or spend time on the beach, switch the sunscreen to one that offers SPF 50. Use an anti-fungal powder in the folds of your skin to avoid fungal infections caused by sweat. Keep yourself hydrated by drinking tons of water and eat bright-coloured fruits that are rich in anti-oxidants to fight the free radicals produced in the skin due to sun exposure. Should you tan, use a mixture of yoghurt and turmeric to reduce it. Wear comfortable cotton clothes and use an umbrella to shield yourself from the harsh sun!
