Dr. Gurjot Marwah’s insight into monsoon skincare for all skin types

Published

on

You didn’t need us to remind you that monsoons are harsh on your skin. Your skin has
undoubtedly already broken out, become dull, grown overly greasy, or even become
irritated, which can drive even the most caring ones among us insane! Aside from regular
cleansing, it’s critical to adapt your skincare routine to the season, especially during this
time of year.
That’s why we enlisted the help of an expert to show us how. Dr. Gurjot Marwah
(@dr.gurjotmarwah on Instagram) is a dermatologist who gives us all of his skin-care advice
for this sticky, humid season. Dr. Gurjot shares the monsoon skincare secrets you’ve been
waiting for with us, from the best skincare products to addressing every skin type.
What’s the best way to care for your feet in the monsoon months?
The most important thing to remember while caring for your feet during the monsoons is
to keep them dry. Despite the fact that it appears to be a straightforward piece of advice,
most of us spend the day in wet shoes and socks, or fail to dry out shoes before re-wearing
them. This might result in a fungal infection of the feet. Second, when getting a pedicure,
be sure the equipment used to clip your cuticles and scrub your feet is sterile and in good
working order. Finally, always rinse your feet with a body wash at the end of the day. It’s a
good idea to clean up before going to bed.
How can we keep our skin protected from rainwater?
The two greatest strategies to avoid skin damage in the rain are to take a bath as soon as
you come home and to keep yourself dry. A pleasant, warm shower will keep you from
contracting any form of infection, whether it’s skin or scalp-related. I recommend using
supplements like Curcumin and RA Defense to strengthen your immunity. Supplements
like these help to restore your skin and hair, which is especially important during the
monsoon season. You could also seek zinc pills to assist you improve your immunity.
What are the safest skin treatments to undergo during the monsoon?
During the monsoon, any skin treatment that your skin may require may be safe. In fact, it is
the greatest time to get a skin treatment because you will be spending most of your time
indoors and the sun will not be as harsh. However, make sure you visit a reputable clinic
that employs cutting-edge equipment for your skin treatments and that you don’t get any
rain or unclean water on your face afterwards.
Can you suggest one skincare practice that is crucial for every skin type—dry, oily,
combination and sensitive, during the monsoon?
If you have dry skin, make sure you use a moisturiser every day.
If you have oily skin, make sure you use a good face wash to keep it under control, as this
season may make you more acne-prone.

Combination skin: Make sure your dry spots are well-hydrated and that you wash your face
on a regular basis, as this season may lead you to become more oily.
If you have sensitive skin, avoid getting wet in the rain and, if you do, wash it off right away.
Use a mild moisturiser and avoid washing your face too often.
What can stress do to your skin?
The brain, skin, and gut all have a connection. So, whether you have stress in your gut
(which occurs mostly during the monsoon) or stress in your head (which occurs all year),
both tend to influence your skin in the form of acne, premature ageing, sensitivity, and
redness. Aside from that, you may get hair loss.
Antioxidants can help to alleviate some of the physical stress we face on a daily basis. As a
result, apply beauty or skincare products that are high in antioxidants. Finally, it’s
preferable to begin practising yoga as a daily at-home practise. After all, exercise is essential
for stress reduction and to strengthen your immune system.

Marburg Virus kills two people, the first cases confirmed in Ghana.

Published

Khushi Thapa, Mumbai Uncensored, 21st July 2022:

Ghana officially confirmed two cases of the Marburg virus, a highly contagious disease comparable to Ebola, on Sunday, after two patients who subsequently died tested positive for the virus earlier this month.

On July 10, tests carried out in Ghana revealed positive results; however, the World Health Organization stated that the cases had to be confirmed by a laboratory in Senegal.

Ghana Health Service (GHS) released a statement saying that additional testing at the Institute Pasteur in Dakar, Senegal, “has validated the results.”

Despite the fact that none of the contacts has yet shown any symptoms, GHS is taking steps to lessen the chance of the virus spreading, including isolating all of them.

The Marburg virus has just recently spread to West Africa twice. Guinea reported the region’s first incidence of the virus last year, but no other cases have been found.\

“(Ghanaian) health authorities have responded swiftly, getting a head start preparing for a possible outbreak. This is good because, without immediate and decisive action, Marburg can easily get out of hand,” said Matshidiso Moeti, WHO Regional Director for Africa.

Wimbledon 2022 Women Singles Final Highlights: Elena Rybakina defeats Ons Jabeur 3-6, 6-2, 6-2, clinches Maiden Wimbledon Title

Published

Shobit Chandola, Mumbai Uncensored, 16th July 202:

On 9th July, 2022 the Wimbledon got its winner in the Women’s Singles with none other than Russian born Kazak, Elena Rybakina who defeated the Tunisia’s Ons Jabeur with 3-6, 6-2, 6-2. Wimbledon this year, for the first time in a while, witnessed 2 finalists seeking their maiden title. What could be termed as unpredictability is that the fan’s favourite contenders were all eliminated before. While the Record 7 Wimbledon title winner Serena Williams was shocked by H. Tan in  the 1st Round, it was Paula Badosa underperforming in the Round of 16 and  the astonishing defeat of the Former Wimbledon Champion Simona Halep in the Semifinal.That too came from the end of Elena Rybakina who vanquished Simona in straight sets 6-3, 6-3.

As could be seen in the epic thriller, the first set was won by Ons Jabeur whose drop shots and forehand made Rybakina go for many unforced errors. But post conceding the 1st set, Rybakina changed the gear for all the trailing in 1st set and ensured enough aces and volley to make it 6-2 in the 2nd set for 1-1 tie. For the 3rd set, Elena led with 2-0 but got holded by Jabeur to make it 3-2 but outshined Jabeur with a 5-2, finally breaking the latter’s serve in the decider.

Not to forget the incredible journey of Ons Jabeur so far. It was the World No 2 Ons Jabeur who became the first Arab and african women to become the Wimbledon finalist but wasn’t at her best to defeat the 17th seed Elena Rybakina who switched her nationality to Kazakhstan in 2018 (owing to the lack of funding and infrastructure for her game) before representing Russia. Just like Elena who wrote the history as the first kazakh to be claimed as winner in the Wimbledon, it could have been the same to Ons too being the first Arab and African women.Though the losing cause made the Ons emotional, it was her grit, determination and the post match interview which reflected her strong character.

In the Post Match Interview, the Introvert Champion Elena had her say on the Wimbledon title. She stated “I was super nervous before the match, during the match and I’m happy it’s finished, to be honest. Really I have never felt something like this. I want to thank the crowd for the support, it was unbelievable these two weeks,” the 23-year-old said. But also I want to congratulate Ons for a great match and everything you have achieved. I think you are an inspiration for everybody. You have an amazing game. We don’t have someone like this on tour and it is a joy to play against you. I ran so much, I don’t think I need to do fitness anymore”. With this title, Elena became the youngest player to lift the Venus Rosewater Dish since 2011.
