Can resist going on terrace for flying kite. Having
that fun with friends & Family. We
wait & prepare for this festival before 1-2 months. But,
along with lots of joy, uttarayan also bring with it
damage to your skin like-
- Skin tanning
- Redness of skin
- Drying of skin ( due to over exposure to cold wind)
- Sun burn
- Peeling of skin etc.
You must have experienced that even after
applying lots of sunscreen or other

now it has become difficult to repair. Right?
So, here is the solution.

is also important to protect your skin from within.
Food plays major role in it as you know,

UV irradiation during uttarayan.

remains for more than a week, consult your
cosmetic clinician for professional skin treatment.
