The Most Effective Indian Diet From Experts For Expecting Moms-To-Be
Despite the fact that the word "balanced diet" is often used in our everyday lives, relatively few of us understand what it implies. This is simply due to our lack of knowledge about what constitutes a well-balanced diet. It entails eating meals from each of the six key nutritional groups: protein, carbs, fats, vitamins, minerals, and water. A woman who is well-nourished prior to conception and eats a variety of nutritious foods throughout her pregnancy will have a good reserve of nutrients for herself and her growing foetus. A well-balanced diet can also allow you to have an uncomplicated pregnancy free of issues such as heartburn and digestive diseases such as constipation. Today, we’ll discuss some of the most effective foods in the Indian diet plan for pregnant women. Dairy products Now is the moment to embrace dairy. Purchase whole or toned milk, curd, cheese, chena/paneer, and buttermilk. Try flavoured yoghurt, smoothies, and shakes as well. Dairy products are high in protein, calcium, and vitamin B12, all of which are important for your growing infant. Pulses Pulses are high in protein, which aids with the development of vital organs in your baby, like as the heart, brain, and lungs. To give your body a protein boost, include ample quantities of dals, cooked sprouts, all nuts, whole grains, millets, and pulses in your regular diet. Fish and meat If you're not a vegetarian, eggs, poultry, and fish are high in protein. They are high in concentrated proteins and should be included in your diet on a daily basis. Avoid mercury-rich seafood such as shark, tuna, basa, mackerel, and swordfish. Make healthier selections like salmon, sardines, anchovies, and river fish like rohu, catla, and so on. Fruits and vegetables Fruits and vegetables are valuable sources of fibre, vitamins, and minerals, and it is suggested that you consume at least five servings every day. Delicious, yet healthy, home dishes will satisfy your taste senses. As snacks, try fresh fruit smoothies and vegetable sticks with homemade hummus, steaming veggies with hung curd dip, or unsweetened nut butter on whole-grain toast. Fats If you're careful with your portions, fats don't have to equate to fat. Fats are good sources of energy for your body and help your baby develop. Choose unsaturated fats that are good for you, such as cold-pressed vegetable oils. Ghee is also good, but because it contains saturated fat, you should restrict it to 2 tablespoons per day at most. Fluids It is critical that you keep hydrated during your pregnancy. Make it a habit to consume water and natural alternatives such as fresh coconut water on a regular basis. For a little more flavour, make fruit infusions and homemade juices. Avoid ready-made beverages and commercial juices, which have a high sugar content and may be devoid of nutritious value. Final thoughts Your pregnancy diet does not have to be drastically different from your pre-pregnancy diet. If you're currently eating well, a few more nutrient-dense calories on your plate may be all you need. Speak with your nutritionist to learn about the nutrients you should be consuming and how to properly plan your meals.

How Can You Tell If a Wig Is Most Suitable For You?
Nowadays, people are no longer limited to the idea of "wigs are only sold to people with thinning hair". With the improvement of aesthetics, the value and charm of wigs are gradually being discovered. Here are five things you need to know before buying a 40 inch wig: 1. Hair color When choosing an HD lace wigs color, you first need to know what you are buying a wig for. For daily use, such as school and girls, office workers, the natural black wig is the best choice, if you prefer a colorful curly lace front wig, you can consider a dark wig, such as #1,#4,#6,#8,#99J... If you're a freelancer, like a Youtuber, beauty blogger, and not tied to a boss, you have more options than natural black, #613, #27, #Ginger, Highlight, colorful wigs... Just follow your heart! 2. Hairstyle Different hairstyles can give you different shapes. When choosing hair length and waves, it is more important to choose according to your preferences. First, length: If you like long hair, something between 26 and 32 inches is better; If you prefer shorter hair, consider a shorter 16- to 24-inch wig. If you want a shorter look, just try a short Bob wig, starting at 8-14 inches. Second, for hair waves: If you are busy with work or study (or a lazy girl like me) and don't want to spend more time on hair care, I suggest you order straight hair, Body Wave; Instead, try other textures, and loose deep waves are highly recommended! Then deep waves, curls, water waves... One thing you need to know when choosing hair length and wave is that the longer the inch, the more time it takes! The smaller the curl, the more need to care! 3. Lace Lace is the most important, choose your lace carefully, you need to know the following 2 tips: The first is the lace size you want, which directly determines the parting and style you can make. The most common lace sizes are full lace wigs, 13x6 and 13x4 lace front wigs, 6x6,5x5,4x4 lace closure wigs, more lace, more split space, and styles you can do! And the price is considerable, the lace size is land-arger, more expensive. Second is the type of lace, the best lace on the market is Swiss lace, all West Kiss hair uses good quality Swiss lace! Lace colors include light brown, medium brown, plain lace, transparent lace, and HD lace. Of course, the best for invisibility is HD lace because it is suitable for all skin tones!! Some of the new wig beginners may not be familiar with lace, if someone wants a wig without lace, there are also options for you: U/V section wig, headband wig, mechanical wig...... These wigs are lace-free, glue-free, beginner-friendly, and affordable!! 4. Density The most normal densities on the market are 180%, 200%, and 250%. For hair length, 180% or 200% density is recommended for 16-24 inches and 200% or 250 for 26-32 inches, while keeping it natural. The rule is that the longer the inches, the higher the density you need! 5. About the size The default wig size is medium and fits more than 95 percent of women. Because the wig comes with an adjustable elastic band inside, you can adjust it to your own size. But if you have any questions about the size, you can first have your head size measured and check the measurement value on the website, or ask our pre-sales colleagues to recommend a suitable size for you. Only the right wig in all aspects will make your image comprehensively improve. Life requires the courage to try, take the first step, make choices, and then gradually know where the better self is and what it will look like.

5 Reasons to Give Up Shampoo
The "no poo" movement has gained popularity, which piqued my interest. People are abandoning shampoo bottles in favour of brushes and talc. Those who have long, beautiful hair claim that natural hair is healthier for you and the environment, and that it doesn't require much maintenance to look good. I experimented with going without shampoo for a few days to see how it felt. Here are five more reasons why you should get rid of your poo: 1. Avoid using chemicals. Many of the ingredients on shampoo and conditioner labels that are difficult to read are hazardous. Diethyl phthalate (DEP) is a possible carcinogen and hormone disruptor, but it aids in the retention of scent in hair products. Although sodium lauryl sulphate (SLS) causes shampoo to foam, it can irritate your skin and even cause cancer, so you should avoid using it. Parabens can help your body stay fresh, but they've also been found in breast cancer tumours. 2. Reduce the amount of water used. You use less water when you don't wash your hair every day, which helps the environment. On days when I don't wash my hair, it works for me. I only need a quick sprinkling from the tub faucet. If you colour your hair, limiting the amount of water it comes into contact with is beneficial. The heat and minerals in your shower water can cause it to lose its colour. Water alone can cause up to 80% of the colour to fade. 3. Make the best possible use of your time. It takes a long time to get ready in the morning. You should wash your hair less frequently if you want to have more time to do other healthy things like go for a morning run or sleep in. You can be more adaptable if you know how to keep your hair clean for longer periods of time. Do not wash your hands before or after working out. For example, don't wash before or after a workout in the afternoon. 4. Improve the health of your hair. Some people go months without washing their hair. They claim that their hair eventually stops producing sebum, which is a type of oil produced on the scalp. The end result is shiny, moist, and healthy hair that isn't greasy at all. Sebum is beneficial to your hair because it promotes hair growth. Because they protect your hair, scalp oils are nature's moisturiser. However, no studies have been conducted to demonstrate that sebum operates on a supply and demand basis. What you do when you remove oils is more of an external thing. I'm not aware of any evidence that this can alter the way the body functions. 5. Get to know your hair. Finally, I was able to go two weeks without washing my hair, which was beneficial to me. My scalp health improved after a summer of not washing my hair frequently. I also learned a lot about my hair and let go of my own strict rules about when to wash it. I didn't have to wash my hair at all during the week.
Natural And Ayurvedic Skincare Routine For Radiant Skin
When you clean your skin thoroughly at night, you help prevent clogged pores and, as a result, the occurrence of blackheads and pimples. Because skin penetration levels are higher at night, your products will work much better and deliver results much faster. We've put together a nighttime skincare routine for women who want to achieve glowing skin quickly. 1. Cleanse your face. Always wash your face to remove all makeup, dirt, and pollution from your skin. Your face wash should fight signs of ageing and improve skin radiance by containing the goodness of kakadu plum, the highest source of vitamin C. Kakadu plum contains natural fruit aha, which promotes cell renewal and gently exfoliates the skin to control excess oil, which can lead to pigmentation when exposed to the sun. It protects your skin from free radical damage, keeping it healthy and radiant. 2. Apply a brightening serum. After cleansing your face, apply a hydrating and brightening serum all over it. Choose a saffron-infused serum cleanses and exfoliates the skin while improving blood circulation and providing a glow. Rose extract aids in the unclogging of pores, the removal of dirt and oil, the restoration of pH balance, and the lightening and brightening of the skin. Lotus and aloe vera nourish the skin, exfoliate dead skin cells, and provide radiance. 3. Apply moisturiser to your face. Apply a brightening face cream to lock in moisture and prevent overdrying. Pick a skin brightening face cream with advanced bioactive phytoextracts that penetrate deeply into skin layers and effectively reduce dark spots, dullness, melasma, hyperpigmentation, and age spots. It should stimulate cell renewal, resulting in clearer, more even-toned skin. Vitamin C the most effective, quick, and safe skin brightener that protects against oxidative stress and effectively reduces liver spots. 4. Apply a face oil. With a nourishing face oil, you can seal in the moisture and goodness of all the other products. Pick a face oil containing antioxidant-rich saffron and say hello to a deep radiating glow, clearer skin, and a bright complexion. Choose anti-inflammatory and anti-acne herbs like Manjishtha, Turmeric and Lodhra to reduce breakouts, acne, and flaunt even-toned skin! 5. Face sculpting. Using a jade roller or a gua sha, sculpt your face. Massaging your face with these tools improves the absorption of other skincare products while also increasing blood circulation. It can help to work the facial tissues and relax the muscles, resulting in less puffiness. It also aids in the reduction of wrinkles and dark circles. 6. Use a lip mask. Apply a lip sleeping mask right before bed to prevent your lips from drying out or flaking. A lip plumping mask with Vitamin C and antioxidants moisturises dry lips. If you apply it at night, you will wake up with smoother lips. It provides intense moisturisation if it is formulated with shea butter and manuka honey. Besides this, lingonberry and turmeric oil, also help lighten dark lips, as well as coconut and castor oil, which aid in the removal of dead cells and flaky skin. 7. Cover everything with a sleep mask. By finishing the routine with a sleep mask, you can seal in all of the skincare products. Pick a prebiotic sleep mask to wake up with a refreshing glory. A sleep mask is designed to provide maximum comfort by nourishing your skin with prebiotics, retinol, collagen protein, and hyaluronic acid. Whichever combination you choose will nourish and hydrate your skin throughout the night. Make this sleep mask a part of your daily nighttime routine to wake up with refreshed, moisturised, plumpy, tight skin. It also aids in the reduction of fine lines and wrinkles.

Strange Pregnancy Symptoms: The Weirdest Things Can Happen
Pregnancy can be a time of uncertainty and fear. There are so many different things that could happen, and it’s hard not to worry about them all. Did you know that some women experience strange pregnancy symptoms? It’s true! And these symptoms may be related to what is going on with your baby. But don’t worry, we’re here with the signs of what each symptom means, any risks for you or your baby, and how to deal with it. Read on for more information on the weirdest things that can happen during pregnancy! Morning Sickness There are two types of morning sickness. Food aversions and nausea/vomiting/indigestion. Phobias happen because you’re just not feeling that well and are more likely to feel like just staying in bed all day rather than dealing with life. Vomiting is the result of food aversions and not feeling well from not eating at all. It also seems to have some connection to your gut health. You may be experiencing either of these symptoms, but it could be both at the same time. Try some easy remedies like ginger, magnesium, and eating saltines. Signs For A Baby That’s Too Far Down This is the opposite of morning sickness. This is the only time when you don’t get sick. It’s just abdominal pain. Fatigue – Strange Pregnancy Symptoms Women are often referred to as the weaker se* for a reason. They often suffer from fatigue, including insomnia. But pregnancy fatigue is a real thing, especially in the second trimester. Women are actually in their most active and energetic period of pregnancy. But when your body is pregnant, it doesn’t make much effort to balance your hormones out. You need extra rest to feel refreshed and well-rested. And so, you may feel more tired and emotionally drained than ever before. Sleepiness Sure, your baby, can make you sleepy and tired, but that doesn’t mean you should sleep right through your morning appointments. Breast Changes As the time to get pregnant gets closer, you may notice a decrease in breast size. Your breast tissue increases in size, becoming more prominent and heavier. By the time you are expecting, you can expect your breasts to weigh anywhere from two to eight pounds, according to Family Connections. Hair Loss Pregnancy is a time of weight gain and growth as your body begins to prepare itself for the baby to come. According to Baby Center, “Your hair can start to fall out if you’ve been less active lately or if you haven’t slept as well as you should.” Since there is a loss of estrogen, the hair may become thinner and thinner. Heart Palpitations Some women are more prone to heart palpitations during pregnancy. Nausea – Strange Pregnancy Symptoms Nothing is grosser than throwing up. Pregnancy can cause nausea as a result of changes in the body and hormones. It’s best to keep a bowl nearby to catch any mess. Nausea can occur during pregnancy that when your stomach starts to shrink, the nerves in your gut become overwhelmed and send signals to the brain that trigger nausea. Cramping When you have severe cramping, it’s normal to think it’s labor. Don’t panic. At first, cramps might feel like menstrual cramps. But cramping can also signify that something is happening with your baby, or maybe your body is just going through some muscle changes. Leg cramps are another warning sign that something’s wrong with your baby. Vomiting – Strange Pregnancy Symptoms As long as your pregnancy is relatively standard, you’re probably not going to see your OB/GYN too often. Your doctor is more likely to come to check on your blood pressure, glucose levels, and any other concerns that arise. But when you are experiencing intense and sudden, uncontrollable nausea, your OB/GYN will want to see you. It’s usually a sign that your liver isn’t processing some toxin, or your gallbladder could be bothering you. In most cases, nausea during pregnancy is usual. But it can get out of control, and the person experiencing it may develop an intolerance for certain foods. Since nausea during pregnancy can sometimes cause a miscarriage, see your doctor immediately if the nausea is severe and persists for more than a week. Constipation According to Mayo Clinic, some women experience constipation during pregnancy, which could be a sign of your baby’s development or the condition of your pelvis. Constipation could be due to a variety of reasons, and this could be a sign of the baby not getting enough food or nutrients. If your constipation is very painful, or if you are throwing up or hemorrhaging, see your doctor. They may be able to help! Weight Loss Losing weight during pregnancy is common, but it’s essential to take care of your health and overall wellness. Food Aversions – Strange Pregnancy Symptoms We all have them. Some of us get food aversions before we are pregnant or even have them before trying to conceive. Others of us don’t start experiencing them until we’re pregnant. Sometimes these aversions are due to increased levels of certain hormones, and other times these aversions are pregnancy-related. Some of the common pregnancy aversions are fatigue, reflux, nausea, vomiting, and constipation. Even symptoms aren’t associated with pregnancy but are something to watch out for, like anxiety, irritability, and depression. The causes of these unusual feelings vary, so keep in mind that there are no guarantees that any of these feelings are pregnancy-related. Pain During Peeing Usually, during your period, you will bleed.
The Best and Worst Ways to Get Rid of Blackheads
Some people don't even know they have acne because it doesn't look like a blemish at all. Acne comes in many different shapes, sizes, and colours. Take blackheads, those pesky dark-colored spots filled with gunk. If you've ever tried to squeeze one, you're likely to have found yourself facing down an angry bump instead, and you'll have quickly regretted it. So, what is the best way to get rid of this kind of acne on your skin? Before we look at the causes and who is most likely to get blackheads, let's look at who is most likely to get them. Blackheads are caused by a lot of different factors. People who get blackheads have too much sebum (oil), dead skin, and possibly C. acnes (the bacteria that causes acne) stuck in their hair follicles, which makes it hard for them to clean. When these things are exposed to the air, they turn black. Blackheads are called comedones in medicine. As acne starts to form, comedones start to form. When the follicle gets bigger and bigger, it can break open and spill its contents into the surrounding skin layer, which is called the dermis. This can cause an inflammatory response. This shows up on the skin as an inflammatory papule, which is more commonly known as a pimple. This is a lot more dangerous than a blackhead. Acne-prone people are more likely to get blackheads, but there is also a genetic predisposition. Hormones also play a role, causing sebum to be made (skin oil). Enlarged pores can also be found in people who have had a lot of sun damage. Ostia (small openings) can look bigger and more dilated if there is less collagen in the dermis around the hair follicle. People with the condition Favre-Racouchot have large blackheads on parts of their skin that have been sunburned. This is a very extreme example of this, though. Skin care: how to avoid getting blackheads Topical or oral retinoids can be used to keep blackheads at bay, such as prescription drugs like tretinoin or Retin-A. Adapalene, also known as Differin, is an over-the-counter retinoid that can be used to treat comedonal acne. Patients with more severe comedonal acne may need to take oral retinoids, like isotretinoin or Accutane, to get better. adds that chemical exfoliants can also be good, but doesn't like scrubs because they can irritate the skin. Getting rid of blackheads is the best way to do it. If you already have blackheads, there are a few dermatologist-approved ways to get rid of them. Some of them are also good ways to keep them from coming back. Make sure you use products that have Salicylic Acid in them. Salicylic acid, which is a beta hydroxy acid, is one of the best things you can use to get rid of blackheads. It increases cell turnover and unclogs pores. adds that the acne treatment can help dry out active acne lesions because it is a mild chemical irritant, which can help dry them out. A lot of research shows that salicylic acid can help with acne. Small double-blind and controlled studies show that people who used a 2 percent salicylic acid wash for two weeks had less acne lesions in 30 of the people who took part in the study. Add a Retinoid to Your Routine. Retinoids, which can be bought with a prescription (like Retin-A) or over the counter (Differin), are a good way to get rid of blackheads on the skin. Retinoids help keep the follicular ostia (where hair grows) from becoming blocked. They do this by promoting skin turnover and reducing the "stickiness" of the skin cells. When you start using retinoid cream, comedones may get worse because cell turnover increases against a clogged opening, causing the pores to widen even more. If you keep getting help for your skin condition, the blocked ostia will start to get better, and with more skin turnover, they are less likely to get blocked again in the future. You can also use retinoid to fight ageing and regenerate your skin. Take a look at Alpha Hydroxy Acids. Alpha hydroxy acids, like glycolic acid and lactic acid, can also be good for your skin. Salicylic acid is better at unclogging pores, though. Choose an in-office treatment with your Dermatologist. People who see a dermatologist can help them get rid of their dark spots on their skin. You can get in-office treatments that can help make your pores look less noticeable. Those are called laser treatments, and they don't hurt. They include nonablative resurfacing like Fraxel laser, Clear + Brilliant laser, and microneedling. While some people are happy with the results of a single treatment, others may need more than one to get the results they want. Worst Ways to Get Blackheads Out of Your Skin Harsh Scrubs. Some people want to use an exfoliating scrub right away to get rid of all their dead skin. People who use chemical exfoliators like AHAs should avoid over-exfoliating with a granule scrub like they might have been told to do as a teen, when they manually scrubbed the grains into their skin until it was red. Harsh scrubs can strip your natural oils and make your skin more oily, says a doctor at the hospital. Manual Extractions. Fight the urge to pop any pimples that you see. If you squeeze your blackheads, you can cause the follicle to break open and cause an inflammatory lesion, or cyst, to form. As a result, you can turn your blackhead into something that's much more serious on your skin Keep in mind that the closer a blackhead is to the surface of your skin, the less risky it is to get rid of it. Suction tools. Tech that says it can remove sebum from pores may sound good, but these products may do more harm than good, so be careful. This suction can be bad for the skin on your face. It can cause broken blood vessels, or telangiectasias, to appear, especially around your nose. Final Thoughts While it might be almost impossible not to try to remove that blackhead with your own two fingers, try your best not to do it. Prevention is the best medicine. The best way to get rid of blackheads is to use a few effective ingredients, such as retinoids, which are both good for your skin and good for keeping new blackheads away. Take your skin to a dermatologist for help.
Stop Washing Your Face in The Shower - Here's Why.
Women with sensitive skin, acne prone skin, or dry skin have probably heard a common refrain from their expert friends and family about how their shower time could be exacerbating their problems. It's such a common refrain in the skincare world that some people question whether you should even shower daily — for reasons other than the potential harm to your face. What kind of shower is best for your facial skin? Long or short? Is it better to bathe with cold or warm water? The truth is that the verdict on showers and their benefits for the skin on your face isn't all that clear, and rather than accepting one opinion as "gospel," you should consider your own skin needs and how showering may help or stop you from getting your face what it needs in order to glow. What Happens to Your Skin in a Shower? The question of what showering does to your skin is perhaps the most important information in this discussion — and there are already some disagreements. However, the general consensus is that showering daily can have a few negative effects on your skin and the skin on your face. In the worst-case scenario, daily showering can exacerbate skin problems such as dry skin, itching, cracking, and bacterial overgrowth. Showering can help reduce skin bacteria, which is sometimes beneficial — but not always. While it may come as a surprise, bacteria are not all bad. In fact, bacteria and the health of your skin have a close relationship. Bacteria are necessary for the health of your skin. For example, in order for your immune system to function properly, it must be exposed to microorganisms on a regular basis. Keeping your skin clean and free of dirt and bacteria does not make you healthier; instead, it prevents your immune system from properly training its antibodies for future encounters. As a result, the antibacterial soaps that many people use in showers and hand scrubbing situations may kill off the important 'should be here' bacteria. When this happens, you're merely making room for more dangerous bacteria to colonise. And this is a major concern for people who take hot showers frequently, because excessive showering can cause your skin to dry and crack over time, allowing these more dangerous bacteria to enter your body beneath the skin barrier. This can lead to major issues, infections, and problems in the future. Is it bad to wash your face while you shower? Despite all of our warnings, there are still plenty of reasons to take our advice with a grain of salt. While a celebrity dermatologist may recommend you not to wash your face during your shower routine, the reality is that there is very little evidence to suggest any danger to your face in particular. We couldn't find any studies that suggested that washing your face in the shower could cause an increase in acne, wrinkles, dryness, or skin conditions like rosacea or eczema. The wrong products, many of which may be in your shower, are what will cause your skin problems. For example, the American Academy of Dermatology Association (AAD) recommends avoiding alcohol and abrasive cleaners, as well as sponges, washcloths and mesh cleaning tools that can irritate your skin. That means that many of the tools you use to wash your body (and may have in your shower) aren't good for your facial skin. And, after a thorough body scrub, remember not to scrub too hard on your face. Cleansers should be applied with your fingertips, and the cleanser should be removed with the same care. And, as the AAD points out, there's the issue of water temperature, which they recommend for face washing be "lukewarm." This is likely unhappy news if you enjoy hot or cold showers. Is water temperature important? You're probably wondering, "Why the big deal about hot water?" What about saunas, steam rooms and hot towels? "What exactly is it about my shower water that is so bad for my face?" As it turns out, there's a lot that can go wrong with it. Excessively hot water has been linked to an increased risk of irritation and inflammation of the skin on your face, according to research. As far as we're concerned, this does not imply that taking a shower is bad for your face. It does, however, imply that your face-specific routine may be best staged outside of the shower, where you can control temperature, reduce the risk of injury due to water temperature fluctuations, and generally do better work for your skin health. You may be wondering about the benefits of steam and whether they mitigate the risk of irritation. Steam and hot water have numerous benefits for your skin — and the things that live in your skin. Steam can loosen and soften buildup, making blackheads and other solid blemishes easier to remove from your pores. Steaming your skin can also provide additional benefits for serums and moisturisers later on. Topical products can often be better accepted by your skin by opening up your pores and making your skin more permeable. And, contrary to popular belief, steam is beneficial to your skin's relative moisture levels. It can not only help you add water to your individual skin cells, but it can also help make subsequent products like moisturisers and serums more effective. Finally, and perhaps most importantly, steam increases blood flow in your skin's blood vessels, which can lead to increased collagen production and, eventually, plump and firm skin. All of this being said, it is recommended that you use a hot towel or bowl rather than a shower, as this gives you more control over the time and level of contact water has with your face, as well as the ability to adjust the temperature. These things are important for people who have rosacea and redness, as well as those who have broken capillaries. Women with sensitive skin should exercise caution as well, as steaming can aggravate inflammatory conditions (which means people with eczema should also be wary). When You Should Wash Your Face Instead So, the shower is off, and we both agree on that. So, where do you wash your face? When, where, and why? You should wash your face twice a day, plus more if you get sweaty, as you might after exercise or time in the sun. In most cases, washing once in the morning and once at night is sufficient. According to what we can tell, you're fine to do one of those washes right after a shower — lukewarm water and a non-abrasive, non-alcoholic cleanser are the gentle combination you'll need. Just remember to be a little gentler than you would be with your back, legs, or feet. By the way, now is the ideal time to apply a moisturiser. Hot showers (especially long ones) can dry out your skin, and for people with psoriasis and other skin issues, they can aggravate existing problems. The best time to replenish lost moisture and protect yourself for the day ahead is after your post-shower face wash.
