The seventh episode of Turiya Talks started with a dynamic interaction between Dr. Vikash Prakash and Dr. Dolly Gupta and Turiya Communications' co-founder Sandhya Sutodia on the topic – Eat Right, Look Good, Feel Great.
We have been sailing through a difficult time during the pandemic and it has put down drastic effects on our health, both mentally and physically. Commenting on this, Dr. Vikash said, " Being at home for a prolonged period has made our body physically inactive and has brought up a rise in cholesterol and an increase in weight, we should follow a healthy diet containing vitamin C, D, Iron and Zinc which helps us in building immunity."
Dr. Dolly added, "There are several reasons such as hormonal imbalance, stress which are some of the root causes for hair fall and are prone to acne."
People consult a doctor only after experiencing symptoms of hair fall or skin rashes because they get concerned only after going through that particular phase. There are different combinations of skin types for different people, various reputed products are available in the market but they might not suite as the skin type of an individual varies from one another, so decisions for proper skincare routine should be taken accordingly. Sanitizers only work for the COVID-19 virus only when the alcohol content is more than 70% but alcohol reacts to our skin and develops rashes.
In the end, Dr. Dolly added “ We should wash our hands with soap and minimise the use of sanitizers when we are at home.”
