Youth Red Cross Unit of Khalsa College for Women, Civil Lines, organised a general awareness programme on reasons, management and prevention of skin disorders in association with Himalaya Herbal Health Care, Bangalore.
Resource person Dr Sanjeev Sharma primarily emphasised on common skin problems faced during adolescence.
The session was started with skin structure and its physiology followed by common causes of skin problems. A detailed discussion was held on pimples (acne) - its causes and management, both preventive and curative. Students were informed that acne is a natural process and they should not be worried about it.
Another problem discussed was alopecia (hair loss).
The lecture was followed by an interactive session, wherein students asked their queries related to acne and hair fall.
While answering the questions, Dr Sharma stressed on proper hygiene and good dietary habits. He further added that psychological factors like stress, tension also play important role in such type of disorders. Simple changes in lifestyle and awareness can prevent many skin problems.
